Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush, Free 24 Piece Beauty Bag Platinum Perk, Another Best of Becca Set, and More With a 2000 Point Redemption

See Platinum GWP Bag Offers for 2018.

View detailed instructions on Earning and Redeeming Points at Ulta.

The Fall 21 Days of Beauty is in full swing. Read my overview for tips on the sale. Ulta offered a 24 piece Beauty Bag as a Platinum Perk with a $125 purchase. This is not a common offer during a major promotion, like the Days of Beauty. These monster bags are more common when Ulta actually needs to push us into an order. There is no expiration date listed on this offer, so it is available while supplies last. I had a few (dreaded full price) items I’ve been waiting to purchase. Since I wanted to get this bag, I decided to get them with some steals I was going to get anyway. It also helps that I redeemed 2000 points for a $125 credit, so I did not pay full price on anything.

Birchbox With the New Points Program Versus Sephora Play!

See recent Birchbox and Sephora Play articles.

I’ve happily subscribed to Birchbox since February 2014, so the July 2016 box marked my 30th month. There were also months along the way where I simultaneously carried two or three subscriptions (under different emails) with them. That means I’ve received a lot more than 30 boxes, and I’ve been happy with most of them. It is a quality subscription box that helps me discover a lot of gems. The rewards program was the best in the business until monthly review points halted on 07/11/16. Under the new rewards program, each subscriber gets 10 points each for his/her first five reviews. After that, review points are unavailable. Every product review received 10 points before, and there were a minimum of 60 products a year. This new program is closer to rewards program other subscription boxes offer.

Sephora Play! June 2016 Subscription Box Review The Minimalists

See recent Sephora Play articles.

Sephora Play! is a subscription box that offers six beauty samples for $10 a month plus tax, shipping included. The charge posts from the 1st through the 4th, and the boxes start shipping around the middle of the month. Spots are limited, but you can place your name on the waiting list if they’re unavailable when you check. This gives one more sample than the standard $10 box offers, because it considers the monthly fragrance as a bonus item. Only items sold at Sephora come inside the box, so it only includes well-known mid to high range items. There is not a traditional rewards program with this box, so you cannot get points for referring friends or writing reviews. It does award 10 Beauty Insider points and applies $10 toward your purchase minimum to maintain your Beauty Insider status. Visit my Sephora page for descriptions on points and status.

Ulta 20% Off Prestige and a 2000 Point Redemption

See the 2019 20% off Prestige Coupon Offers.


Ulta releases 20% off prestige coupons to UltaMate members five times a year: late January, early April, Platinum members in late June 2016, early July for UltaMate, late July for Platinum members (this is the normal time but members who received them in June did not receive the July offer), late October, and Mid December. The July offer was reduced to 10% for non Platinum members in 2015 and 2016. In 2016, the early April offer was also reduced to 10% for non Platinum members. During this promotion, select UltaMate members receive a coupon for $15 off a $50 purchase if they have not shopped in a long time. Each unique coupon is eligible for one online purchase AND one in-store purchase. Coupons emailed have a different code than coupons mailed. If you receive a coupon from both methods, you will have two different online codes and two different in-store bar codes.

Prestige offers have a few exclusions, so these coupons are not 20% off everything as mentioned on the offer. They exclude: CliniqueLancome, Dermalogica, Dyson, Beauty Steals, and Benefit Brow Bar. Additional exclusions including fragrance and select new releases will be added at times. There are other times throughout the year to get general offers for 20% off non-prestige or 20% off a single item, but those are general, multi-use codes. If you have more questions about this or any Ulta Coupon, I go over all types.

Redeeming points (earn and redeem points) at 2000 gives you the greatest redemption value of $125. I redeemed 2000 points on this order to receive $125 off the purchase. My path to 2000 points was quick and painless thanks to some impressive multipliers and brand offers. This is actually the fastest I’ve ever reached 2000 considering I just redeemed 2000 points in September.
