Ulta Friends & Family Haul

Tis the season for Friends and Family sales...
However, Ulta's drove me a bit crazy. I will explain.

So the sale lasted a mere 7 days- October 23-29. Ok, so that doesn't sound so mere. Basically, if you personally know someone that works at an Ulta store, they have access to a few coupons they could each give to a few friends and family members. Not really something a lot of people could benefit from.
However, I also knew that there would be an email sent out with a code as well as a coupon sent through the mail. Well, they were sent, but at the very last minute.
I got my email during the last couple days of the sale, I believe. But what really made me mad was that my actual sale coupon/flyer was mailed to me the last day of the sale. Yep, October 29th. Which was kind of frustrating. Not really sure why those were sent out at the very last minute. Or why the email wasn't sent out on, oh I dunno, the 23rd when the sale began?
Ok, I'll calm down.
You're killin' me, Ulta...you're killin' me.

Anyway, to see the (last minute) goodies I got check out my Ulta Friends & Family Haul video below.
...and if you're like most people I've talked to and didn't get to take advantage of the sale because of the last-minute-ness, Sephora's F&F sale is still going on (until Nov. 2nd). You can get all the info on that here.

  1. I actually got my coupon an entire week before the sale....talk abut torture!! lol Another thing is, a couple of the items I was looking for are only available online which was a bit irritating..

  2. I was in your boat, got my coupon on the last day of the sale (and since the nearest store is an hour away, it's not really a spur of the moment kinda trip) Ah well, I needed to get my car in for an oil change instead anyway... lol

  3. That's so weird. I got my coupon in the mail last week but mine is for October 29 - November 5. I wonder if the dates are regional in store.

  4. I like those false lashes! I tried to use the email code and it seemed like it couldn't be used on the "prestige" cosmetics.

  5. Wow! I guess Ulta was all over the place. I got my coupon in the mail a week before the sale and used it the first day. But after that I realized there was still some things I wanted, went to the Ulta.com website, and BOOM! They had a link to print the coupon right on the front page. I ended up printing two during the sales week and used them both with my membership card to get 20% off each time.

  9. I got a postcard last week also and it was from the 29th through the 5th. It's weird how they wouldn't have a universal code for everyone to use online..
    Great haul btw! I had no idea Benefit had false lashes! I have to check them out!

  10. I didn't get the email until the last day.
    The coupon said it wasn't off any prestige brands. which includes Butter, Benefit,

    Which blows because I got stuff from both of them and I didn't get any discount on it.

  11. That makes me so mad when I get coupons and they expire that day or you only have a couple days to use them and you can't free up a moment because you already have a busy schedule...ugh. Hate that.
