HOT TIP (totally unrelated to this post): Check the beauty sale page links to Macy's and Nordstrom at the top of my blog because both retailers have been adding new deals today and they're going quickly (free shipping at both retailers)! For example, there's a little Smashbox deal here for only $6 with free shipping but I don't know how long that will stay in stock!
Thanks so much to several of you here on the blog and on social media for the tips about this one!
If you are an Ulta member and have not checked your email today, DO IT ASAP. Because you may have received a unique coupon code for 20% off your entire purchase (online only) that is valid today only, 1/28, and it INCLUDES most fragrance and prestige cosmetics! The only exclusions are below.
FINE PRINT (EXCLUSIONS):
Coupon offer valid on all regular price and sale merchandise. Not valid on Lancôme, Clinique, Dermalogica, Beauty Steals®, Beauty Deals™, Dyson, Salon services, Dermalogica skin services, clearance and Benefit Brow Bar Services. Cannot be redeemed for cash or gift cards.
IMPORTANT: I have heard from non-Platinum members and Platinum members today who have received this coupon, and I have heard from MANY of you. So it looks like most, if not all, Ulta members received it. But if you did NOT, please call Ulta customer service and ask if they can give you a unique code over the phone. This has worked with some members in the past, so it's worth a shot!
I just tested this code and it works with all of the prestige cosmetics that are already on sale HERE (aside from the brands that are excluded from the code, of course). That means that you will receive an additional 20% off the sale prices of those items! For example, I tested it with the LORAC Dance 'Til Dawn Palette, which is already reduced from $19 to $15. With the code, my total dropped to $12!
Since these 20% off codes often exclude fragrance, it's worth it to check out the fragrances here for anything you may have been wanting (don't forget the gift sets)!
Those of you who said you wanted to try the IT Cosmetics moisturizer that I reviewed yesterday, this could be a nice time to pick it up (or get a back-up if you already love it). Direct link to purchase here.
Also, the 5x points on Clarisonic ends today (1/28) so you will receive 20% off + 5x points on all Clarisonic purchases here. (Log into your account here and go to your My Rewards tab to see if you have this offer available to activate.)
I also want to remind you about some of the newer products that are now available on the Ulta website and not excluded from this coupon:
- Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette and more
- Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Comfort Matte
- Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Metallized
- Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box and Nocturnal Vice Lipsticks
