  1. That Benefit duffel bag is out of stock.

  2. The Benefit duffle is sold out :(

  3. OMG TRY THIS TRICK!!! This happened last time they offered a goody bag like this! I only added $85 worth of products and then added the 4 freebies and the $125 bag and it was still free because it took the freebies into account to meet the minimum purchase ($40). Then I added my 20% coupon and my total was only $68.56!!!!!! Not sure how long this will work?

    1. Same here! I only had to spend $85 to getbthe free gift too! Most of the time it is like that!

    2. This worked for me too! Thanks so much for posting this. I never would have thought to try that. I purchased $89, and after the 20% plus using 600 points, mine was down to about $50. I got some free Philosophy fragrance GWPs in the mix, too. This may be my best deal haul yet.

    3. Oh no!! I spent $89.00 yesterday!!!

  4. These Macadamia Professional sets are on sale. I think these were $26 before. Plus sample treatment mask with $25 purchase.

  5. Aww I don't see the Smashbox multiplier. I know some people get them while others don't. I tried calling and seeing if ULTA could just add it to my account but they said there's no such promo going on. Lol Has anyone had any luck asking for these multipliers to be added to their account?

  6. Im a Platinum member and I got a %20 off coupon INCLUDING prestige brands. I ordered NARS and it worked for it.

  7. Thanks so much for the heads up on this! I deleted that email thinking it was just a reward points statement, so I had to go digging for it in my trash folder!

  8. Ralph Lauren romance free gift and platinum gift bag are both sold out. What's the point of all these "gifts" if we can't get access to them? This is not the first time this has happened to me either. I don't like just jumping on a purchase all the time as I want think it through and make sure I'm not making an impulse buy. The rewards aren't as good at least Sephora seems to have better stock with their free gifts. I am starting to see why some say it is better to shop

  9. NYX cosmetics 40% off lip products still going on through tomorrow , online and in stores .

  10. As of Sunday, 2/19 the free bag with any $125 purchase is sold out. Also, the purity and the Living Proof aren't showing as free anymore. I was able to get the Smashbox primer and UD mascara though. Plus, I was able to use my 20% off code again so at least that was a nice bonus. I had placed an order on Friday when I received the 20% off coupon but wasn't sure if it was a one time use code or not so I took a chance and tried it tonight and it worked again which was nice. I was able to score the 4 freebies and the free bag with my order I placed on Friday so I can't complain but it is strange that I couldn't get two of those freebies tonight.

  11. All of Honest Beauty is on sale at Ulta also! 40% off I believe. The line is leaving Ulta and moving to Target I heard.

  12. For some reason, the Philosophy and Living Proof deluxe samples don't change to free when I add things to my cart. What am I doing wrong? Ulta's website is so annoying.

  13. The philosophy free gift & living proof free gifts are both not showing up as free for me. Also, the platinum bag is out of stock.

  14. Would i be able to use the 20% off prestige code online and the printable one in store for two separate transactions?
