Ulta Friends & Family Event: Get your coupon NOW!

I heard some chatter on social media about the Ulta Friends & Family Event (going on 1/12 - 1/18 in-store and online) and I was searching for the URL for the coupon when I got a tweet from reader Mandy of Mandy's Secrets, and she shared the URL (thanks so much, Mandy!). Check it out:



When you click this link, you'll see this:

Get your exclusive 20% offer now!

Just enter your name, valid email address and zip code below. You will 
receive an exclusive, one-time use coupon code for 20% off your entire 
purchase including brands like bareMinerals, Philosophy, 
Clarisonic, Benefit & more of your favorites! Coupon can be used 
in-store or online and is valid from 1/12/14 through 1/18/14.

Follow the instructions and then you'l see this message:

Congrats! Your online and in-store 20% off coupon will be sent to your email address shortly. Please allow up to 5 minutes to receive your coupon.

Remember, this is a unique, one-time use coupon good on one purchase in-store or online. Please don't forward your coupon to someone else because if they use it, you won't be able to. However, if you want to share this offer with your friends and family, simply send them the URL: ulta.com/friends.

After I signed up, the coupon arrived in my email within just a few minutes. Here is the fine print from the Ulta email:

Coupon offer valid on all regular price and sale merchandise and on any one service at THE SALON™, excluding hair extensions (THE SALON™ offer is valid for all guests on one service only). Not valid on Lancôme, Clinique, Urban Decay Naked 1, 2 or 3, Benefit Brow Bar Services and Beauty Steals. Cannot be redeemed for cash or gift cards. This offer cannot be combined with any other ULTA coupon offer. Not valid on prior purchases. Void if copied or transferred and where prohibited by law. May be used on a single purchase and is limited to stock on hand. We reserve the right to limit quantities to normal retail purchases. Limit one per customer, per visit. Please check ulta.com for your location details. ©2014 ULTA Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. Valid 1/12/14-1/18/14.

As you can see, there are a few exclusions, but unlike the regular 20% off coupons that Ulta issues, most of the higher-end brands that Ulta offers are NOT excluded in this promotion.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to share this with me via social media, and an extra special thanks to Mandy for the link!

    1. If you are interested in mineral products, you should check out Everyday Minerals. They have GREAT products, do not use any Bismuth Oxychloride, are way more affordable and, also happen to be cruelty free! I have been using they products for about 6 yrs and I love them :)

  11. Quick question for all of you- I see the exclusion for the urban decay naked palettes, but does it exclude other UD items? I want to pick up some dual end eyeliner. Thanks ladies!

    1. I don't think other UD items are excluded, just the Naked palettes, probably because they're such hot sellers. Have fun!

    1. Ulta coupons run in roughly 2 groups, with the later group being the one with the most fluctuation in products it applies to.

      Coupon 1 - This exclude all "prestige" brands. The list of professional brands that exclude themselves from sales is quite long which is why it is not printed on each coupon. Common types - 3.50 off 10. 5 off 10. 5 off 15. and generic 20% off one item or 20% off entire purchase. Retail brands often compensate stores for their coupons or in store promotions such as B1G1 50%, 15%, etc.... which is why they offer these coupons so frequently.

      coupon 2 - Works on MOST prestige brands. These coupons almost always state exactly which brands are excluded. Usually brands like Lancome, dermalogica, etc... and sometimes clarisonica and clinique. The most likely reason this one excludes the Naked palettes is due to limited availability, my local store has run out of Naked 2 and 3 each day that they receive them! Generally these brands do not reimburse the retailer for the promotion so ulta takes in 20% less profit from each item making these coupons so much more rare!

      Don't forget these include on salon service too!!! Great way to save on a professional cut, color or skin treatment.
