Ulta.com- Free shipping with a $50 purchase for regular and Platinum members. When this dips to $25, $35, or free with a specified purchase, I will note that below and in the Free Shipping article. Free shipping with a $25 purchase for Diamond members. The option to select a free 2-piece sample pack disappeared again. It is possible it will pop up again, but there are no free samples (outside of ones you qualify for).
Sign up for the UltaMate Rewards Program for points and exclusive offers. Points only expire a year after the quarter you earned them in wraps (if you do not reach Platinum status).
Earn 1 point for every dollar spent, a birthday gift, 2x points during your birth month, 5x points during your anniversary week, 20% off prestige coupons, special point multipliers, and more. Cash points in for a credit to use on anything. The more you bank the more valuable the points are. Points expire one year after the quarter you earn them in at this level. See all 2019 UltaMate Rewards Perks.
Spend $450 a year and get upgraded to Platinum. Your Platinum membership is valid from the date you earn it through the end of the following year. Points do not expire while you’re in Platinum status. You get all UltaMate Rewards perks plus extra Platinum Perks, including 1.25 points per dollar spent, a $10 birthday coupon, and exclusive Platinum Offers. See all 2019 Platinum Perks.
Spend $1200 a year and get upgraded to Diamond. Your Diamond membership is valid from the date you earn it through the end of the following year. You get all Platinum Perks plus extra Diamond Perks, including 1.5 points per dollar spent, free shipping with a $25 purchase, and a free $25 reward card annually good toward beauty services (which comes inside the Diamond Rewards Qualification Gift). Read more about the Diamond Program. See all 2019 Diamond Perks.
Redeem the points you earn for cash off your purchases. While I recommend reading the article on Earning and Redeeming Points article to maximize program value, there are two basics that can help without reading too much. Only cash in points in increments of 2000 and combine as many multipliers as you can to earn points quickly.
The Refer-a-Friend to the UltaMate Rewards Program option was eliminated in 2017, but you can still Refer-a-Friend to the salon (hair, nails, or facials). You and the person you refer get $15 off your next service.
Ulta sends most offers to UltaMate Rewards members via email, so make sure subscribe to emails. Some offers come via mail or app, so download the app and make sure your current address is on file. Be sure to check your mail, look at the catalogs, and read all of your emails, because the special promos hide at times in otherwise normal looking ads. If you get a special offer (these are at times targeted), you must activate it from the email or from the My Rewards section of your online account. I check the My Rewards section before placing an order, because I’ve seen offers in there I did not get a notification on. If a GWP offer is targeted, and I have an in-store coupon, it is in the Just For You Coupons article.
One of the best Ulta Beauty deals is how many coupons it takes. You can always find a general drugstore coupon at this link. In Everything You Need to Know About Ulta Coupons, I go over every type of coupon, targeted coupon offers, rules for the coupons, how you get the coupons, expiration dates, and help you differentiate between unique and general coupons. Ulta carries drugstore and prestige brands. Drugstore brands have a higher price than your average drugstore, because they run constant promotions and almost all Ulta coupons are eligible. You can even use manufacturers coupons if you shop in person. If you shop with a coupon during a promotion, you can get a better deal than most drugstores. Prestige brands have competitive pricing, so you tend to get an even better deal with sales and coupons when the 20% off Prestige Coupon is out. I also track targeted Just For You Coupons, Dollar Off Coupons, Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift Coupons, and Percentage Off Coupons.
I check Buy More, Save More Offers, the Sale Section, and the GWP section every time I place an order. Over the years, I’ve found some great things on sale. If I am purchasing something worth $32 and I can spend $3 more to get a GWP offer or grab another item for a BOGO offer, those are deals I want to know about. When shopping in-store, shop by its clearance section.
Ulta is on Central Time, so all promotions start at midnight central time. Most promotions cut-off on time, which is important to remember if you are on the West Coast.

I track all major promotions. The timeline will link you to each article (if you want more details) and show you when it came in the past, so you have an idea of when to expect it in the future.
Beauty Breaks are only available for 4-6 hours at a time, mostly on Wednesday mornings starting at 8am PST. I track all Beauty Breaks, and I will make a note here when I see one outside of a Wednesday morning.
