So here is my way I save money on makeup. I usually shop at Ulta because of their return policy. Nothing is more irritating to me than walking into a store, buying something that does not work, and not being able to return it. Ulta does not hold anything against me when I return stuff I don’t like.
Here is my list for How to Hack Ulta:
- Buy online
When you purchase online, you can get gifts with purchase. I have mostly given up going to the store, as they don’t usually have the gifts with purchase. Online, it is almost guaranteed. Also, if you have to return the item, you can keep the free item it came with. One time I tired giving it back to them, and they were all like, no its yours, keep it. I was like WOW, seriously? That is a super awesome gesture on their part.
You can totally use coupons online and in store. I find it easier to use them online, than in store, as the store associates sometimes don’t know or understand the restrictions. I have had fights with them and had them show me on the restrictions section where it says the coupon cannot be applied. I am always right, because I do my research before hand. This can be super irritating, so honestly, the only thing the physical store is good for is trying stuff and returning stuff. This may seem mean, but good customer service is a must. This is a main reason why people like to shop online. So on top of Ulta coupons, you can use manufacturer coupons as well. Double the coupons are awesome!
3. Free Shipping online
When you spend $50 online, you get free shipping. I usually buy what I need and add something else I don’t need to it to get to the $50. When I have the time, I just return the item I don’t need, and wah lah! It works!
4. You can use the 20% off coupon more than once
When that wonderful 20% off coupon rolls around, you can use it on more than one order. Especially online. More ways to save money! Cha Ching!
So, those are my Ulta Hacks. If you use any perfume or makeup, feel free to try it out. Their return policy is super awesome. Just make sure you follow the return guidelines, such as keeping and bringing the packaging receipts with you for a return. That is super important! Otherwise the return wont work
