Ulta releases so many beauty bags during the year that I split up the 2019 beauty bag articles into Platinum Perk Beauty Bags (available to Platinum and Diamond members), General Beauty Bags (listed in the GWP section), Diamond Perk Beauty Bags (available to Diamond members), Ulta Beauty Collection Beauty Bags, Beauty Breaks (4-6 hour offers), Friday Summer Treats, Skinfatuation Offers, and Affiliate Beauty Bags (available to anyone who happens upon an affiliate post). There are also targeted GWP Coupons (I receive on my account and share). Every time Ulta releases a Platinum Perk Beauty Bag in 2019, I will update this article. A Platinum Beauty bag is a gift with purchase only available to Platinum or Diamond members. This bag of deluxe and full-sized items is usually available with a $125, $150, or $175 purchase. It is always online only. The bag (which is different each time) gets released 4 times per year, so I should have all four listed below by the time the year wraps. Whenever I redeem one, I will write a separate article and link it to the offer below. Other Platinum Perks get tracked in a different article. See the 2018 article to compare the bags below to the ones we received last year.
I track all Platinum Beauty Bag offers, but I also review the ones I redeem. This is a review of the February 2018 bag, which is still available for free to Platinum and Diamond members with a $150 online purchase. While the beauty bags include mostly deluxe samples, they do at times include full-size items and foils. There are no foils in this one, but there are 4 full-size items. Ulta claims this has a $276 value. Whenever there are errors in Ulta’s list (as there are here), I will only correct them in review articles (like this one). The tracking article will always have Ulta’s original list.
There is a new Platinum Beauty Bag today. Every time Ulta puts out a Platinum Beauty Bag in 2018, I will update this article. A Platinum Beauty bag is a gift with purchase only available to Platinum or Diamond members. This bag full of deluxe and full-sized items is usually available with a $125 or $150 purchase. The bag (which will be different each time) gets released 3-4 times per year. Whenever I redeem one, I will write a separate article and link it to the offer below. Since I did not write a 2017 article, I am listing the 2017 offers below. Tracking when the 2017 offers arrived helps paint a picture of when the 2018 offers may arrive, because they are usually not far off each year. Other Platinum Perks tracked in a different article. Sign into your Platinum account, add the bag, purchase enough products to reach the minimum threshold for the bag, and the cost of the bag will drop to zero.

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.
