ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty

ULTA 21 Days of BeautyKicking off on Sunday, Sept. 2 and running through Saturday, Sept. 22, ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty  sale is one of the retailer’s biggest beauty events of the year and features 50% off select items each day. The main attraction of this ULTA sale is its “Daily Beauty Steals.” These 24-hour price breaks are available online and in stores (unless otherwise noted), so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite beauty essentials. Additionally, ULTA will offer “Hot Buys” with up to 40% off a wide range of popular products throughout the entire event.

ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty: Daily Beauty Steals

ULTA's 21 Days of BeautyAs the name suggests, ULTA’s Daily Beauty Steals are available for one day — and one day only. These limited-time specials will snag you 50% or more off some of ULTA’s most-loved brands (primarily prestige products that are rarely included in the store’s coupons). They also tend to sell out fast, so shop early to snag the items on your wish list.

Platinum and Diamond Ultamate Rewards members receive free shipping on all Daily Beauty Steals, and they’ll also score exclusive access to online-only “Platinum Perks.” One caveat? Daily Beauty Steals are limited to two per customer.

Here’s what you can expect each week:

Week One

ULTA's 21 Days of BeautyShop early for the $10 Tarte lip paints on Sept. 6, as they went particularly fast at this price back in April. This time around, the store is giving customers a FREE 4-pc. Tarte Discovery Set with any $39+ Tarte purchase, which sweetens the deal even more.

It’s also a good idea to double-check Sephora’s sale section, which will likely include some competitive offers. For instance, you can get select BECCA pressed highlighters at Sephora right now for $22.80 — and Beauty Insiders can save up to 20% on top of that now through Sept. 3 during the store’s Beauty Insider Appreciation Event.

Other highlights include 50% off IT Cosmetics brushes, Clarisonic cleansing brush heads and Lancome’s bestselling Cils Booster XL mascara primer.

If you’re a Platinum or Diamond member, shop online Sept. 9 for 50% off select M•A•C palettes. And if you need your brows tamed, Sept. 15 is definitely the time to stop by the store for a complimentary brow wax service with a $50 Benefit Cosmetics purchase.

New and Improved Ultamate Rewards

Ultamate Rewards

ULTA shoppers love the store’s Ultamate Rewards program (and for good reason). It’s totally free, and it lets you earn rewards points on your ULTA purchases — points that can then be redeemed for money off future beauty buys. Curious about joining? Here’s a quick overview:

Ultamate Rewards

ULTA used to have just two levels in its rewards program based on how much you spent each calendar year, but the store recently announced its new “Diamond” level, which has even more perks. Here are the revised membership levels and the specific benefits of each:

Birthday Gifts

Speaking of Ultamate Rewards, don’t forget to sign up for the store’s emails to receive a free gift during your birthday month. You’ll also earn double points all month long, so you’ll rack up rewards even faster. Here are this year’s birthday gifts by quarter:

Ulta Birthday Gift

Extra Credit

ULTA is attempting to lure new Ultamate Rewards Mastercard applicants by offering 20% off their first Ultamate Rewards Mastercard purchase. You’ll also earn two rewards points for every dollar spent instead of just one, and you’ll receive a FREE full-size Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in your choice of Bestie, Obsessed or OG when you apply in-store. (Limit one per customer while supplies last.)

Just make sure you don’t carry a balance. The card’s variable APR ranges from 17.99% to 26.99%.

More Ways to Save at ULTA Beauty

  • Ultamate RewardsJoin Ultamate Rewards. With ULTA’s free rewards program, you’ll earn points whenever you make a purchase in-store or online. Those points can then be redeemed for monetary discounts off future purchases. (Take that, Sephora.)
  • Make a referral. ULTA encourages shoppers to refer friends and family to its rewards program or salon services by regularly offering discounts just for doing so.
  • Look for freebies. With frequent free gifts and BOGO promotions, be sure to check the complete list of current promotions to see what’s up for grabs.
  • Make your coupons twice as nice. Ultamate Rewards members receive a 20%-off coupon three or four times a year. Unlike other ULTA coupons, these can be used on the store’s prestige beauty brands. Another bonus of these coupons is that you can possibly use your 10-digit code online first and then again in-store. (I gave this a go at my local ULTA and was denied, but other shoppers have succeeded. Attempt this trick at your own risk!)
  • Shop in-store. ULTA limits online customers to one promo code per transaction, but you can use unlimited coupons if you shop at a brick-and-mortar location instead.
  • Download the app. If you regularly shop ULTA deals in-store, be sure to download the mobile app before you go. You’ll have all your qualifying ULTA coupons right at your fingertips for a speedier checkout.
