Making the Most of the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Sale
The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Sale is undoubtedly the best time to save at Ulta. But those in the know will tell you it also requires a smart strategy to make the most of Ulta makeup deals and skincare specials. Follow our step-by-step process.
Step 1: Stock Take and Blitz!
When you see cool products from a to-die-for brand at ridiculously cheap prices, it’s tempting to just grab everything that appeals to you. On the other hand, frugal shoppers might pass up offers only to find they’ve missed out on something they really need.
Take stock. Throw away old makeup you don’t use and check whether you have enough of your favorite things – then do the same with your skincare products. Before you look at any deals, you’ll be armed with a wish list.
Step 2: Look Online, Plan, and Schedule
There are two things you need to know about this promotion. First, the full range of bargains is only available online.
Second, the moment the products become available, they begin to sell. Since that’s 10 pm PST, they could be sold out before you wake up in the morning.
So, what does that mean to you? Shop like a pro! Check the full schedule of special offers as soon as it’s available. Use your diary or a calendar to plan, and be ready to pounce on the things you want as soon as they become available.
Is it worth it? If the alternative is missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings or having to settle for inferior products, then it certainly is!
Step 3: Use Free Shipping to Your Advantage
If you’re a platinum or diamond Ulta card holder, you get free shipping on everything. Those who spend less at Ulta all year and only target the big events will need to spend $50 before there’s free shipping. If your purchase falls just short of the mark, grab a small, cheap item to make up the difference.
Ready, Set… Shop!
We love saving money, but we also believe there are times when spending more and getting the best quality makes sense. Beauty and skincare products are important to how we look and feel and for that reason, buying quality is the only way to go.
Then again, thanks to Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Event, you might not end up spending more for the best brands the word can offer. Play your cards right and get ready for 365 days of beauty to come.
