Coupon-Eligible Items at Ulta? Your Favs?

[ Edited ]

Edited: Here's a list of generally coupon-eligible brands/items @Ulta -- thanks all for contributing!  Hopefully this will make Ulta's pesky coupon easier to use!

 

[I don't use hair product (allergies), or scents so those things didn't particularly make it onto my list, but check the comments.]

 

I don't usually use drugstore or Ulta brand products, so I've tried to list only things that might stand up to high end brands, or are close, or are unique.

 

Thanks to everyone weighing in, keep adding!

 

So far Coupon Eligible, and mostly non-drugstore, are:

 

Tweezerman!!!
Real Techniques
Trina Turk (make up bags)
Pure 100%
Burt's Bees
Earth Therapeutics, often BOGO 50% (not sure on both discounts!)

Hollywood  Fashion Secrets, including "emergency kits" + bride kit gifts

Wigo Hair Brushes (incl 100% Boar Bristle teasing brush)

Spornette Hair Brushes

Marilyn Hair Brushes
NYX
Essie

SpaRitual and many other Nail Polishes (NOT OPI)
Hairuwear
Own
Eclos
EB5 Collagen Booster Serum
H2O Plus
Formula 10.0.6
Mineral Fusion
Reviva Labs
Eco Tools
Hair Accessories - Elle, Riviera, Karina, Capelli New York
The Body Shop
Hugo Naturals
N!p + Fab (by founder of Rodial?)
Alpha Hydrox (darn they don't carry the foot cream one anymore)
RETINOL brand by Skincare Cosmetics

 

Ulta Brand (currently Ulta Men is excluded from coupons, they have other offers going)

 

Conair beauty tools/electrics - spa mitts, paraffin wax dip station, etc.

 

Generally I'm trying to order the list above loosely in terms of how "nice" the brand is & how likely I would be to use it -- totally subjective, but good for cosmetic elitists like me to reference :smileyhappy:.

 

Other ideas to use your coupons:

Cotton pads

Qtips

Travel Tissues

Other travel stuff - containers, delinters, travel hairbrush

Large spray bottles (for wetting hair, etc.)

Spray bottles for putting toner or softener into a spray

Shower Cap

Nail Files - incl crystal files

Thanks to everyone who contributed, and those who posted about Ulta's coupon restrictions exclusion list!  It's great to have that handy.

 

To clarify re: the existing Coupon Exclusions list and why that wasn't working for me: my point in creating this list was to make it easier for me to find things (as a bit of a beauty snob, and a picky person) that ARE eligible for Ulta coupons.  Not an exhaustive list of all brands that are coupon eligible, but a curated list of some better brands and recommended products here on BT.

 

I wanted to a list of ideas/brands that are eligible, things that I might actually buy and not just drugstore items (though a few drugstore items are great of course).

 

I find it hard to shop with just an EXCLUSION list, and wish you could just search or sort INCLUSIONS on the Ulta website.  But you can't.  So I'm using this list!

 

I hope it helps others too :smileyhappy:.

What's the best sensitive skin fragrance free body moisturizer with a pump at ulta? Reasonably priced, please. I go through lotion in the winter, so the higher end will have to wait for summer. I'd buy enough of that at a time to cover the cost of any promo.

That's a great idea!  I wish I knew more about Ulta's selections to give you the best answer.

 

However, I know Ulta carries large sizes of the Cera-Ve moisturizer which is for sensitive skin, and comes in a pump form! :smileyhappy:  It's 14.99 for a fair sized pump bottle, I think.

 

Also, Eucerin.

I'm not sure if this will help clear up anything on what Ulta's coupons can and cannot be used on since I'm not sure if it varies by location but here is the link:

I would say Real Techniques and Japonesque are what I would normally use the coupon for. I just used it on top of the BOGO which was awesome. Japonesque brush spray is made by Parian Spirit so when I ran out I got the big container and since it was BOGO got the dupe for the MAC 187 and it is ust as nice, glad I didn't pay the extra for the MAC one. I was looking for their powder brush that they had on display too, but they were OOS.

At my Ulta, they let me use coupons on top of sales (such as BOGO, clearance, etc.). I usually use it on NYX, real techniques, OPI, Essie, Chi.

 

@kimmi1115 coupons work on OPI products at the Ulta I go to. It's weird how it's different for different locations. Seems very inconsistent.

I'm so happy that this list is a thing now, I get coupon emails from Ulta all the time but I've never been too clear on which are the non-"prestige" brands to be used with the coupons. :smileyhappy:

Re: Coupon-Eligible Items at Ulta? Your Favs?

Ugh, I always feel like the coupons are such a hassle and hardly ever go to my Ulta because of it. It always seems like nothing is eligible! I did go in a couple weeks ago, though, and got a few things with my coupon :smileyhappy:

 

Yes to Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask

Yes to Grapefruit Dark Circle Correcting Eye Cream

 

Love, love, love these products! I definitely want to try out some more and probably will the next time I have a coupon.

 

I got a ton of evanyc hair products too, and an H2O hand/cuticle scrub.

Thanks for the suggestions!

 

And I feel you about what a hassle, I know what you mean.  I am hoping having a list here and in my Ulta online favorites of eligible stuff will help me make the best of a coupon.

Here's what's in my cart for now, need to narrow it down to about $75 worth to get to Platinum and use my coupon.

Ack, I despise those brand restricted coupons, it's ridiculous! I can't understand why Sephora can run specials that Ulta can't :smileysad:. Anyhow of the brands you mentioned these are my loves & likes:

Pure 100% (love their scrubs, and vanilla buttercream scents)

Eco Tools (their Kabuki brush is awesome w/my BM foundation)

The Body Shop

Earth Therapeutics

Alpha Hydrox

Those are all pretty good brands :smileyhappy:.

Matrix, Redken coupons can be used on these brands (not sold online). It's mostly the right side of the store that are excluded..so hair, the middle of store and left side are where the coupons can be used.

 

The main exuded list is at ulta DOT com/coupons..for those wondering what's excluded normally.

 

Tried Crest, coupon worked :smileyhappy:

This post is so useful! The coupon confusion is the exact reason I avoid Ulta. Reading fine print?

Re: Coupon-Eligible Items at Ulta? Your Favs?

Thanks so much, that's sweet of you to say... and I agree lol!  I did a lot of BT searching and couldn't believe this thread didn't already exist (at least, I don't think it does).

 

I also emailed Ulta's customer service to ask if there's any way to search, sort, or filter by coupon eligible (since they put it yes or no on every product page -- you'd think this would be simple).  But maybe they won't WANT people to be able to do that :smileywink:.

 

We'll see what they say.

 

In the meantime trying to make a list of brands that [admittedly somewhat-cosmetic-elitist, drugstore-avoiding-like-me] Sephora shoppers might actually BUY, that are coupon-eligible.

I love the Tree Hut body scrubs, so I make sure to stock up when I get a coupon and they are on sale often as a buy one get one half off deal, so that's an awesome bonus. :smileyhappy: 

 

Also, this is a bit off topic but I'll ask since a lot of Ulta shoppers may read this:  Has anyone noticed if the UD Shattered Face Case is $29 in the store?  I seen it online as $29 but there is a store right around the corner from my work so I was thinking about picking it up and I don't go back until after the new year but it's worth it to make a trip during my vacation :smileyhappy:.  Thanks!
