Here Are Some Reasons Why You May Want to Join the Free Loyalty Programs at Urban Decay and Bloomingdale's

In case you haven't heard, both Urban Decay and Bloomingdale's have loyalty programs. Both programs are FREE to join, and they come with some pretty great perks for us beauty lovers. So here's a quick overview.

Urban Decay 
The UD Beauty Junkies program is free to join HERE and gives you all of the following perks:
  • FREE SHIPPING on every order with NO minimum.
  • As you accumulate points, UD Kickbacks will be added to your account automatically. Apply these $10 and $20 rewards (depending on points earned) toward future purchases.
  • Enjoy special offers, promotions, gifts (we may even surprise you with some free swag on your doorstep) and double points days.
  • Get early access to new product launches.

Every benefit and reward was created specifically for UD Beauty Junkies. Only members will have access to these perks. 

The more UD Beauty Junkies points you earn, the more benefits you’ll have access to and the higher you’ll rank. Each level comes with an insane amount of perks, but the higher you get, the better it is.

Free shipping on all orders (with no minimum)
A birthday gift
Special access to exclusive and limited-edition products
Exclusive invites to brand events
Advance notice for new product launches
Extended returns

Access to try new products first
Last-call access for products about to sell out

Free expedited shipping on all orders*
Access to private sales and events

To me, enrolling in the UD Beauty Junkies program is kind of a no-brainer because even if you don't order too often from the UD website, it's great to know that whenever they add new items to their Sale Page, you will always be able to get them with free shipping. That by itself is worth the time it takes to enroll, if you ask me.

The Bloomingdale's Loyallist program is free to join HERE. This program is not exclusive to beauty purchases, but there are some nice perks for beauty purchases (I'll explain in detail in a moment). The Bloomingdale's Loyallist program includes the following perks:
  • Free shipping every day with no minimum purchase required.
  • Points for every dollar you spend--no matter how you pay--online, in store and at our outlets.
  • DOUBLE points on all shoes, cosmetics & fragrances at Bloomingdale's every day.
  • A $25 Reward Card every time you reach 5,000 points.
  • So many opportunities to earn Reward Cards faster with double, triple and Power Points.
  • See fine print and exclusions here.

Admittedly, I don't shop too often at Bloomindale's so at first glance, the Loyallist program didn't feel like something I "needed to have." HOWEVER, I do try to cover beauty deals at Bloomingdale's and often times those deals aren't always that great after you factor in shipping fees (orders under $150 ship for $6 at Bloomingdale's unless you're a Loyallist, in which case all orders ship free).

So for instance, there's a great little deal right now that is pretty much only great IF you are a Loyallist:

Since this offer is valid with ANY beauty purchase, you can order something inexpensive, such as this Laura Mercier sharpener for $3, and still receive your choice of five free beauty samples, plus FREE SHIPPING if you're a Loyallist. See what I mean? That deal wouldn't be nearly as good if you had to pay $6 for shipping. I tested this by signing into my Loyallist account and adding the sharpener to my bag. When I went to check out, I was prompted to select my five free samples and my grand total came out to $3.18 (the $0.18 is sales tax here in California). Plus, the free everyday shipping makes Gift-with-Purchase offers like this one a lot more attractive as well.

Also, Bloomingdale's regularly offers other Loyallist perks for beauty lovers, such as this one:

Offer valid online only February 25 - February 28, 2016.

So even if you don't shop at Bloomingdale's too often, it's nice to have the "free shipping on all orders" card in your back pocket whenever there's a nice beauty freebie or other offer.

I hope this helps!


  1. Signing up for both programs now! You. Are. Awesome.

    1. Awww, thank you so much! Happy to help! :D xo

  2. It was just my birthday, so I just got an email with my UD Beauty Junkie bday perk--it's a free full-size eyeshadow with any purchase! No idea if these things will change with each month or anything, but that's a decent perk (and means I don't have to choose between Asphyxia and Tonic). :)

    1. My birthday gift earlier this month was a full sized eye liner!

    2. Those are awesomee perks.
      You all got to choose any shade you wanted?

  3. I got that sharpener a few weeks ago with a free bobbie brown gift. The sharpener gets the job done, but its not amazing.

  4. I don't remember Loyalist always having free shipping. Is that a new perk? LOVE that UD is giving free shipping now. It was a pain to fill the cart during F&F...

  5. Thank you so much for getting all these "specials" rounded up. I've gotten several great deals because of it.

  6. Straight from the UD site: "Referred by a friend? You’ll get 10 extra UD Beauty Junkies points after you sign up using your custom referral code"

    Do you have any codes? :) :)

  7. I picked up that sharpener and the free cost-$3.18! Thanks G!

  8. Signing up for UD perks- can put in a referral code so that I may receive points....
    Do you have a code I can use?

  9. if anyone needs a referral code here is one: :) pr3p49sj you earn 10 points when you join!

  10. Yup, I was gonna ask what your referral link was... Perks of having a blog!! You could score some mega points! :)

  11. Is UD Junkies 100% free? I have been trying to look it up online and have found nothing.

  12. is this free totally or just to sign up?

  13. Thank you so much for this! You really go above and beyond!
    Here's my referral link for 10 points if anyone wants to join:

  14. I have a referral link as well, if anyone wants to use it so we both get 10 extra points :)

    or I think the code might just be the end of the link, if it asks for a code: 8df6yyr9

  15. or the code peacqcxe is my referral code as well c:

  16. Here's my referral link!

  17. Hmm actually I had tried to customize my referral link but it did not seem to save it :-/

    So I was saying that I used a code from one of the commenters above (wanderer) and would appreciate it if someone uses mine to sign up and spread the savings! My link is, or paste the code 3fuxe7gf in the referral field during signup.

    Thank you so much. And thanks again G! I didn't know about this program and it'll be great for snapping up some sale items without worrying about shipping. I have my eye on a couple more colors of those glossy lip pencils on clearance for $10! :)

    1. Hey Ace, I just used your code. Because you posted your comment on my birthday! Lol!


  18. The UD Junkie program is only worth it for the free shipping. I recieved a code for my bday gift, which is a 24/7 eyeliner (my choice of color) with purchase of a regular priced item. The code does not work while logged into my UD account. I chatted with an UD rep and also confirmed by email that in order for my code to work, I have to check out as a “guest”. Checking out as a guest doesn’t give me free shipping. So I have to chat or call to give them my order number so they can add the purchase points to my account, then they will refund me the shipping charges AFTER my item ships. It’s too much of a hastle for an eyeliner. For the $10 off for reaching 100 points does not become valid until AFTER you place your 1st order as rewards member. I have 125 points from reviews, recommending people, adding social media, etc. and my $10 off won’t become valid until I make a purchase for the 1st time as an UD Junkie. I know it’s new program so hopefully it will improve as it goes along, if not then atleast theres free shipping.

  19. Here's a referral link to all of you glam gals out there in need of one. We'll both get 10 points. How fab is that!

  20. Hi, here's a referral link, if someone wants to help and get 10 points too- Code is - 6s3pmn69 . Cheers!

  21. would love to earn some referal points!

    1. Used your Referral Link Beth! I also shared one of your posts.. <3
