Things just got rewardier™. Here’s what you need to know to get the most out of your membership, including why having 2,000 points at Ulta is so important.

Those points can be redeemed for free beauty and free beauty services†. Think: Dyson, Drunk Elephant, Tarte, Ariana Grande Fragrances, you name it. Or, hair services, skin services and brow services.

How to rack up Ulta Beauty Rewards points

Becoming a member is quintessential to you having the best, most joyful Ulta Beauty experience. It’s fun, satisfying and according to our #UltaMath, you basically can’t afford not to! Aside from all that’s mapped out above, there are even more ways to get allll the beauty you love for less (and sometimes, for free). If you’ve been wondering how to maximize Ulta points, are looking for Ulta rewards tips or just want some Ulta points hacks, we got you covered.

1) Download the app, use it as your dashboard and get extra perks.

Get (h)appy! You probably already know that our app is a game-changer. (If not, peek here to see all it can do for you.) But FYI, our app is especially valuable to members. Think of it like a dashboard that can track your rewards, status and extra perks—right at your fingertips. Pro tip: You’ll see bonus points offers rolling in regularly. Always activate them so you never miss out! Download it today, keep your eye on that inbox and remember to turn on app notifications too!

2) Always shop when there are bonus points offers.

During bonus points offers, you can earn 2X, 3X, 4X and even 5X points for a limited time. Sometimes this offer is for certain categories or brands. Sometimes it's toward your entire purchase. Shopping when there are bonus points offered is the fastest way to really build up your points, and the more you earn, the more you save. Check your inbox (email and app) often, activate offers as soon as you get them and follow us on social so you never miss a bonus offer.

3) Get 2X points, your choice of free gift and more for your birthday.

We love celebrating you. Every member level gets 2X points on beauty and beauty services throughout your whole birthday month, plus—you get to choose your free birthday gift from a selection of gifts! Platinum? You’ll also get $10 off an in store or online purchase. Wanna party with us? Just make sure to add your birthday and email address to your profile. Yay, HBD to you!

4) Stack up the promotions.

Stacking saves you the most money and earns you the most points. For example, you can use a 20% off coupon, 2X bonus points offer and redeem a gift with purchase all in the same order. All bonus points are stackable. So, if you’re getting 2X points during your birthday month and there is a 5X points offer on a brand you want to shop, you can stack and get alllll the points. And yes, you’ll still qualify for promotions, discounts and gifts with purchase if you use your points to pay for a purchase.

5) Save up your points until you hit 2,000.

This one’s the MVP. There’s a big jump in points value when you get to 2,000 points. The value of 1,000 points is $50. But the value of 2,000 points is $125. If you split your points up and only redeem some of it, you’ll have lost out on a lot of value (and that means losing out on scoring your favorite products and beauty services). TL;DR, to get the max value of your points, save up to 2,000 (or 4,000 or anything divisible by 2,000).

If you haven’t signed up yet, whatcha waiting for? It’s easy. It’s free. All you need is an email address and a phone number. You’ll instantly start racking up points with every purchase and will be eligible for perks, like a coupon for $5 off any $10 purchase. Sign up! Can’t wait for you to see how rewardy™ it is.
