Many thanks to reader Sheila for sharing this pic of next week's Ulta ad:

All NYX, Revlon, Physicians Formula and Almay cosmetics 40% off
Valid 9/28 - 10/4 at Ulta (in-store and online)
The only exclusions for this sale are NYX kits that retail for $14.99 or more. Other than that, IT'S ON. And of course this sale is valid both in-store and on the Ulta site from 9/28 - 10/4.
I'm guessing that Ulta will also have another $3.50 off a $10 purchase coupon to go with this sale (the current coupon on their site expires on 9/27). So check the Ulta site on Sunday to see if there's a new coupon that you can use with this sale.
IMPORTANT: For those of you who are new to Ulta, you can use manufacturer's coupons on your beauty purchases at Ulta AND you can stack them with Ulta store coupons for even more savings. However, Ulta will deduct any manufacturer's coupons you have FIRST, so if your total dips below $10 after you use your manufacturer's coupons, you won't be able to use an Ulta $3.50 off a $10 coupon. For more info about that, read THIS COMMENT by Ulta on their Facebook page.
Let's say you buy two Almay foundations @ $9.99 each and one Revlon lipstick @ $7.99.
Total before sale: $27.97
Total after 40% off sale deduction: $16.78
Now let's say you have two $1 off Almay manufacturer's coupons and one $1 off Revlon manufacturer's coupon. Plus you have an Ulta store coupon for $3.50 off a $10 purchase.
Ulta will deduct your manufacturer's coupons first:
$16.78 - $3 in manufacturer's coupons = $13.78
Then Ulta will deduct their store coupon:
$13.78 - $3.50 = $10.28
Your grand total for $27.97 worth of makeup will be $10.28 after sale and coupon deductions.
Thanks SO much, Sheila, for the heads-up (and pic) about this sale next week!
