16 Products from Ulta Beauty You Can Score Totally Free with Points
We’ve got two words for you: Ultamate Rewards. Ringing any bells? If they are, then carry on. If they don’t, listen up. Because shopping at Ulta Beauty is about to change for you.
At its core, Ultamate Rewards is a loyalty program, plain and simple. When you sign up, you start racking up points with every purchase you make—every dollar spent at Ulta Beauty is equal to one point. It’s totally free to join and points can be redeemed toward any product or service. For added bonus points and to track your points balance, download the Ulta Beauty app and opt in for notifications to stay on top of exclusives offers.
Now, here’s where it gets really fun: The more points you save, the more money you can get off your purchase. Redeem as little as 100 points for $3 off, or save up your points and redeem up to 2,000 points for $125 off one epic beauty haul. You can also take advantage of the bonus points offers, which is probably the fastest way to get your points to add up (like earning 2x points on all purchases during your birthday month). And you reach different statuses the more you spend: Platinum and Diamond. Those members earn even more, and when you have Platinum or Diamond status, your points never expire.
So if you’re ready to take advantage of Ultamate Rewards, go ahead and sign up here to start saving points. Then, shop some our favorite Ulta Beauty picks below.
1. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
