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.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Platinum Steal Becca Mineral Blush

See Platinum Perks for 2018.

The Fall 21 Days of Beauty officially kicked off yesterday. Read my overview for tips on the sale. There are at least three Platinum exclusive steals throughout the event. Ulta could surprise us with more, but only three are known. Today’s offer is also the most appealing to me. Better offers tend to sell out early, so I always recommend arriving as soon as the sale starts. Since Ulta is on central time, steals go live at 10pm PST and come down the following day at 9:59pm PST. It is always possible new GWP offers or Beauty Breaks will release in the morning, but waiting for them is always a risk. I’ve successfully waited and have missed out from waiting.

Ulta Free 20 Piece Beauty Bag With a $60 Purchase

See General 2018 Beauty Bag Offers.

While we wait on our 10x points hauls and wait for the Fall 21 Days of Beauty to start on the 4th, Ulta decided to give us another reason to place orders. There is a 20-piece Beauty Bag available with a $60 purchase starting now. It is available through the August 30th, if it lasts that long. Check my Ulta page for ideas on what to order with this.

Ulta NYX Beauty Break and Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

A list of all recent Ulta Beauty Breaks.

Ulta typically releases a Beauty Break every Wednesday morning from 10am-2pm PST. A Beauty Break is a GWP that is only available for a very short period. There will be select Wednesdays where they do not release one and other times when they pop up at a different day or time, like Monday evening, Saturday morning, Sunday morning, and more. While Ulta does email (those who receive emails), these offers and others usually appear in the Gift With Purchase Section before emails go out. Emails stagger, so better Beauty Breaks may run out of inventory before some people receive their emails. People on the east cost have a better chance of scoring a Beauty Break thanks to the time difference. If you wake up and notice an incredible Beauty Break, do not sit on it. These Beauty Breaks never make it to the end of the timeline and weaker ones at times get extended past the deadline. This order was 3x points.

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.

Ulta Love Your Hair Event and a Free 18 Piece Beauty Bag

See General 2018 Beauty Bag Offers.

2016 Event- The Gorgeous Hair Event for Spring 2016 is May 8th-28th.

Now that the 21 Days of Beauty at Ulta wrapped, what can you look forward to at Ulta? The Love Your Hair Event is to hair what the 21 Days of Beauty is to makeup and skincare. Those new to Ulta may have noticed there were no amazing hair products included in the 21 Days of Beauty. That is because it gets an event all its own. Hair is big in Texas and twice a year at Ulta (May and October). Last year, it ran from October 5th-25th, so the dates will probably be similar this year. Most steals posted in the special section of the Ulta site, so be sure to study it to plan your purchases.

Best of Becca Collection

This article covers the original Best of Becca set. I also have a review for Radiant Glow and Blushed Radiance. All of these are 4-piece sets that arrived with a broken piece. The Becca minis in Sephora Favorites sets, like: Bronze Bares All and Paint It Pink arrive in tact, so the problem is how Becca wraps these sets. They are wonderful products, but they are not wrapped well enough for rough shipping and handling. Sephora wraps its favorites sets and does a much better job.

Becca entered the highlighter world with some strong game. The pictures always looked amazing. I got my hands on a sample and found out that the effects were legit and not clever photo editing. While researching which products I wanted to start exploring the brand with, I came across the Best of Becca kit at Ulta. Sadly, it was out of stock, so I decided to wait before purchasing anything. On 05/09/15, I got a Beauty Break offer that looked interesting.

Inside a Sephora VIB Rouge Event

See the latest VIB Rouge Event.

My favorite point multiplier is always the one good toward any purchase offered every year at the beginning of August. This is the kickoff to Beauty Insider Appreciation Week. The event gives 4x points to Rouge members, 3x points to VIB members, and 2x points to Beauty Insiders. I woke up with a terrible headache the day of the last Beauty Before Brunch event in April, so I missed Sephora’s Rouge Event for Chic Week. My sister and I had a decent time at the event hosted at Town Center last August, but I found the Summerlin November event lackluster. The biggest difference in the two events was we took part in services offered from brand reps who arrived in August, but I opted out in November. She partook in makeup from Smashbox and promptly bought some items. I partook in a mini facial from Ole Henriksen, and they got me as well. Maybe, I would partake again and see if it warmed me to the event.
