HOT 3 Day Only Deals at Ulta (with Freebies and other Perks)


In case you didn't get the email from Ulta today, there are quite a few nice deals happening now through Sunday (7/31) that you should know about! So let's get right into this:



DON'T FORGET:
  • FREE WITH ANY ONLINE ORDER: add this MATRIX Travel Size Total Results Miracle Creator Multi-Tasking Treatment  to your cart, and once you add anything else to your cart, it will go from $8 to FREE.
  • Platinum members: earn 5x points on all purchases now through 7/30. Log in to your account and go to your "My Rewards" tab to see if you have this offer available to activate. 
  • All members: you may possibly earn 5x points on all bareMinerals purchases (ends 8/6) and also 5x points on all NYX products (ends 7/30). Log in to your account and go to your "My Rewards" tab to see if you have these offers available to activate. 
  • If you are Platinum and have the 5x points on all purchases offer AND the 5x points on all bareMinerals and/or NYX purchases offers, I believe these offers do stack (I previously thought that they did not). Reader Ishouldgogetmilk confirmed that when she did a mock order for $100 of NYX products, she received 922 points total. (Thanks for letting us know that, Ishouldgogetmilk!)

PLEASE NOTE:

Many Ulta customers received a 20% off coupon code via email yesterday (7/27) which is only valid for 3 days, both online and in-store. Most high-end brands are NOT excluded from this coupon, and I just received confirmation from reader Linris that this coupon works with the 3 Day Only deals! (Thanks for that, Linris!) IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE THIS COUPON CODE: reader Mahek kindly let me know that when she didn't get the 20% off code yesterday, she called Ulta and they told her that they were having some issues but would adjust her online order pricing if she were to place an order within the next 3 days. For in-store orders she was instructed to call back today (7/28) and they would hopefully be able to send out more codes. So definitely give Ulta a call at 1 (866) 983-8582 if you didn't get your 20% off code and see what they say. (Thanks again for that, Mahek!)

UPDATE: I just called the Ulta Customer Service number above and was able to get a code emailed to me, no problem. And I used it on one of the 3 Day Only Deals, too!

  1. I called my local Ulta just now and they said the 20% off code is only for select members and they aren't sending out any more :(

    1. Ah rats. I'm so sorry! Thanks for letting us know though.

    2. You should call the number on the Ulta website for the customer service line because local Ulta stores are not in charge of sending out coupons (they actually don't even know what coupons are currently valid half the time)

      Delete
    3. Call the actual Ulta costumer service number and they will send it to you if you're a platinum member.

    4. I called customer service, and they provided me a coupon code. I am a Platinum member, don't know if that made a difference. But worth giving a try. Also G, just noticed a Stila bronzer and cream contour duo, both in deep. are on sale! Too dark for me, but a great deal for possibly others when combined with the coupon.

  2. Hey! Do you know if the 20% coupon was for everyone of only platinum perks?

    1. I believe select Platinum and non-Platinum members received the code.

  3. Literally counting down the minutes until that palette is on sale so I can kill 2 birds with one stone and get that as well as other stuff I've had my eye on with the 20% off!

    1. Great strategy, Jessica! So easy to get to $50 that way! ;)

      Delete
    2. Oh! One more thing though--if you REALLY want any of the 3 Day Only deals, you MAY want to get those today, since I just noticed that the Perricone deal is now sold out. I would hate for you to wait on any of those deals and then find them out of stock when you place your order!

      Delete
    3. Yes, the 20% off seems to be working with the steals as well!

      Delete
    4. NO WAY!! Thank you so much for confirming, Linris! Will update my post!

      Delete
  4. Its a shame that I've become so spoiled with Ulta's perks and promotions that I've been constantly checking your posts to see if there are any GWP or freebies. You'd think 20% off, the Beauty Deals and 5X Platinum Perks would be enough.

    1. Haha! Those freebies are GWPs are like crack, right? So addicting! We need more, more more! ;)

  5. G, I forgot to ask if there's any info on Target's August Beauty Boxes? Thanks.

    1. No updates on the Target beauty box page yet, but HOPEFULLY the new box goes live on Monday! Will post the moment I find out. :)

  6. Darn! I just made a purchase because I got the ulta email about bareminerals and had to restock. I even double checked your website, and didn't see anything. Missed the free miracle creator and 20% off. Oh well, I guess I'm helping the economy. I did however made the zoya purchase, and the nords bareminerals eyes from nords due to your page. lol.

    1. You can always find all of the freebies/perks for Ulta in my weekly sale wrap-up, girlie! If you don't see anything on my home page, just go to the main menu bar at the top of my blog and click the link that says ESSENTIAL LINKS. From there you'll see the drop-down menu and click WEEKLY DRUGSTORE SALES. Hope that helps! :)

  7. Hi!! New here but wondering if there is a place where a person can go to trade out coupons? Thinking of there is someone who has a coupon they aren't able to use, is there somewhere you can share that info? Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete

    1. So sorry, but I don't allow that type of thing here--my blog is for posting and sharing deals, not trading or swapping things. But I think there are plenty of other places online where you can do that! Try googling "coupon forum" or "coupon trading" and hopefully you can find a community that does that sort of thing! :)

      If you ever have a deal you'd like to share with the rest of the community, that's what I created the You Tell Me page, if you're interested! It's a great read with tons of useful reader-submitted info. I'll put the link below, but you can access it at any time by going to the main menu bar at the top of my blog. Click ESSENTIAL LINKS and from there, go to the drop-down menu and click YOU TELL ME.

    2. In addition to what G suggested, you can try the Sephora BT community. There are forums there where people share coupons that they are not using.

      G is only one person and can't keep track of everything. Besides we wouldn't want any distractions from getting the beauty deals she posts!

    3. Aaaah, thank you so much, Annie! xo

  8. Thank you for the information! I am a Platinum member and never received the 20% off code. I just called their customer service and promptly received a code.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I used my 20% off coupon yesterday (WITH POINTS!!!!!) in storebut I just put it in the coupon code field online and its still working!

    ReplyDelete
  10. So I was one of the lucky ones and received the 20% off coupon and I added several of the 3 Day deals to my cart and I can confirm that IT DID take the 20% off all the items.

  12. I got a 20% off code monday but that was for getting a ulta credit card. It expires 8-24. My queatjon is, can this be used for salon purchases? Im getting my hair done tomorrow and want to buy a few things as well i stead of wasting on makeuolp only today. This is the fine print on coupon:
    Coupon offer valid through 8/24/16.

    *Subject to credit approval. Cannot be redeemed for cash or gift cards. Not valid on prior purchases. Void if copied or transferred and where prohibited by law. May be used on a single purchase only. Limit one per customer.

  13. I called and they promptly sent me an e-mail with a coupon code. Unfortunately I tried to place an online order and the coupon code they sent me was expired! Overall their customer service was great but I'm a little bummed out.

  14. I am a Platinum member and I called Ulta Customer service and they promptly provided me with a 20% off coupon code. Unfortunately when I went to place an online order it said it has been expired! :( They were sweet and attended me well but I'm a bit bummed out. I will try going in store and seeing if it works but I'm scared it will most likely not and I'll make a fool out of myself.

    1. I called today and got the coupon code emailed to me, when I tried using it, it said that it had already been redeemed so I called them right back and they fixed the issue. I suggest calling them back to get it resolved! Happy shopping!!


      Thanks as always G!

  15. I just called Ulta cs and they emailed me a code for the 20% but was told the coupon would not work on beauty steals... I wonder if the UD smoky palette going on sale tomorrow is considered part of the beauty steals? I also noticed tomorrow is the last day to use it but they emailed it very quick so that's good

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've heard that the UD palette WILL be a Beauty Steal, so probably not. But I guess we won't know for sure until the sale goes live! Sadly, I already used my coupon (I didn't want to miss out on the Tarte powder foundation since I know these deals sometimes sell out) but if you try tomorrow, I would LOVE to hear if you were able to get the code to work!

      Delete
    2. G, you're going to love that Tarte powder foundation!! I already have a backup and am considering getting another..........I may have a problem lol!

      Delete
    3. Oooh, thank you, Mahek! Now I'm even more excited to get it! ;)

      Delete
    4. Sorry for the late response, I decided to not try the 20% on the UD palette, instead I did 2 transactions: one for the palette to get 5x points (platinum) and then use all the points and get the Tarte foundation plus the 20% so I only came out of pocket 5.65 for the foundation! Then came home and decided to get a few more things online and what do you know? The online code worked!! I have to start saving some $ for the Too Faced palette coming up on August from Nicky Tutorials

  16. Right now at Ulta you can also get a free ELF moisturizing lipstick with a $12 ELF purchase online, through 8/6. If you wanted to just get a few things and not place a full order with ELF

    1. Thanks for the tip, Gypsy! I mentioned this in my weekly drugstore makeup sale wrap-up earlier this week, but always great to spread the info for those who don't read that post! :D

  17. I just called Ulta Customer Service and they promptly sent me a 20% coupon! Thanks, G!

  18. I got a code also, an extremely long combination of numbers and letters but it is not working for me 😕

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It works. Sounds like you're trying to use BOTH codes, though. Read your email again. There are TWO codes there. One is for online and the other is for in store. The code for online is the shorter one.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your response G. Unfortunately I can't get it to work,tried it on the app and the site.

      Delete
    3. When I've had issues with ULTA coupon codes, it's usually because I have a hard time distinguishing the number zero from the letter O. Try swapping them out, and see if that helps!

      Delete
    4. Here's another theory. Are you sure you're placing the code in the CODE box and not the gift card box? My first instinct was to use the code as a gift card, but it doesn't work that way. You have place it in the discount code box. :)

      Delete
  19. Geez, I must be the only one that they wouldn't give me a code!!!(((((((
    I'm platinum with a zillion points to use!! And, bday month! I'll have to call again & try....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. DEFINITELY call again. I didn't even have to explain. I basically said "can you send me the 20% off code please?" and like 2 mins later it was in my inbox, no questions asked!

      Delete
    2. I'm platinum and I don't have the offer for the 5x points :( I checked my rewards tab. Anyone else had this issue??

      Delete
    3. Dee, definitely call customer service and see if they'll adjust for you. Others have done that and had luck, so hopefully you will too!

      Delete
  20. Success!!! A really nice dude emailed me a code, no prob. Told me platinum members are very important!!! lol.....

  21. Thank you so much for posting these awesome Ulta deals! I missed out on the Naked Smokey palette, but I prob have too many eye shadow palettes anyways! My hubby just gave me a $100 gift card and I had the 5x points AND the 20% off for platinum perks so I did awesome thanks to you! Got my 5x on my bare minerals and NYX too! Yay! Over 600 points on my order today! Wahooooo!
