Ulta offers enthusiastic beauty mavens plenty of ways to save every day with its “Buy More, Save More,” free gift-with-purchase opportunities and special events throughout the year. But Ulta coupons really hold some of the most savings if you know where to find them, how to use them and roughly know when they’re available.
Oh, and don’t forget to check for a RetailMeNot cash back offer at Ulta, where you earn your money back on every purchase. Here’s a look at the Ulta coupons available throughout the year and how to use them like the beauty pro you are:
How To Find an Ulta 20% Off Coupon
The 20% off coupons are the most highly coveted of all the Ulta coupons. Here are the different ones you’ll come across and how you can get your hands on each of them:
Join the Ulta Beauty Rewards Program
For the absolute most savings, join Ulta’s loyalty program – Beauty Rewards – to receive coupons straight to your inbox and through the mail. Regardless of the rewards tier, you’ll still have more access to Ulta coupons than the average person as long as you “opt-in” to receive their emails. Plus, you’ll receive seasonal and bonus point offers throughout the year.
Although the coupons aren’t stackable and do come with certain exclusions, including the Benefit Brow Bar, Dermalogica Skin Bar and Ulta Salon, they’re still totally worth saving, clipping and using for every allowable purchase.
Once you’re a Rewards Member, if you’re also a Target Circle member, make sure to link your accounts because you earn points when you shop Ulta Beauty at Target.
Sign Up for an Ulta Beauty Rewards Credit Card
Signing up for Ulta’s Beauty Rewards credit card is different from the rewards program, but sort of works the same. You’ll earn points on every purchase (at Ulta and other stores). When you’re approved, Ulta gives you a 20% off coupon to use on your first purchase with your new credit card. And as you’ll find, this 20% coupon doesn’t exclude prestige brands, making it extra valuable.
Plus, a few times a year (typically in the spring and around the holidays), Ulta gifts its credit card holders and Ulta Beauty Rewards members with a 20% off coupon that doesn’t exclude prestige products.
20% Off One Qualifying Item Coupon
“Qualifying” is the key phrase for Ulta’s 20% off one-item coupon because there are some exclusions. Most of the time, prestige products are excluded from this coupon. You can get a 20% off one item coupon when it’s available online or when Ulta sends it to your email or through the mail. You can only use it one time.
20% Off Any Qualifying Purchase Coupon
The Ulta 20% off an entire purchase coupon applies to regular-priced products and sale and clearance merchandise, although it *usually* excludes prestige products and other services. It comes around maybe four to five times a year via email or mailed as a single coupon. I don’t remember seeing this one available online.
20% Off Any Hair Tool Purchase
This Ulta coupon is exactly what it says: 20% off any hair tool, excluding Dyson, of course. But it does include flat irons, hair dryers and curling irons from premium brands like Beachwaver Co., BabylissPro, Drybar, Hot Tools, and a slew of others.
Where To Find an Ulta $3.50 Off Coupon
When other Ulta coupons aren’t available, you can bet your bottom dollar a $3.50 off coupon is.
$3.50 Off $15 Coupon
The $3.50 off a qualifying $15 purchase coupon, which is a 23.33% discount, is the most common one Ulta offers. You can find them on Ulta’s website or on the back of its circular. Or, just check out RetailMeNot for the latest Ulta coupons to use every time you shop.
Where To Find an Ulta $5 Off Coupon
We don’t consider Ulta’s $5 off coupons rare. However, you won’t come across them every day. Shoppers who sign up to receive Ulta correspondence get them through the mail, typically on the back of the circulars.
These are the $5 coupons Ulta makes available throughout the year:
$5 Off Any Qualifying $25 Purchase Coupon
The $5 off of a qualifying $25 Ulta purchase is valid online and in stores and equals a 20% discount. I received mine on the back of Ulta’s circular. But you can also sometimes find it online, too. Just print it out to use in the store or copy and paste the code at checkout. Easy peasy.
$5 Off a $15 Purchase Coupon
Of the $5 off coupons, Ulta’s $5 off a $15 purchase is the most common. It’s a 33.33% discount on qualifying merchandise. You can find them at Ulta.com and on the back of the Ulta circulars that are mailed out to subscribers and Ulta Beauty Rewards members.
Where To Find an Ulta $10 Off Coupon
$10 Off a $40 Purchase Coupon
The $10 off a $40 purchase coupon is the highest percentage off that Ulta offers, amounting to a 25% discount. This one saves you the most money but rarely, if ever, includes prestige products. We don’t like to use the word “never” because Ulta has surprised us a time or two.
It’s a good one to use when you need to stock up on “qualifying items,” as it offers more bang for the buck. You can get it on the back of the Ulta circulars you receive in the mail.
