When Does Ulta’s Black Friday Sale Begin?

Ulta’s Black Friday event begins on Sunday, November 21 through Saturday, November 27.  However, you can start shopping online one day earlier at 8 p.m. CT if you want a head start. We recommend doing your shopping as early as possible, as items may sell fast due to high demand and limited supply.

Will Ulta Be Open on Black Friday and Thanksgiving?

  • Stores closed on Thanksgiving Day
  • Stores open on Black Friday from 6 a.m. – 10 p.m.
  • Shop sales online starting November 20th at 8 p.m. CT

Ulta will close its doors on Thanksgiving again this year, but you can start your shopping early online as early as November 20th beginning at 8 p.m. CT. Keep in mind that many online deals will have limited supply, so shop early to snag the discounts you really want. If an online deal goes out of stock, your local store might still have it available for purchase.

What Are the Best Items to Buy at Ulta on Black Friday?

Some of the best deals can be found in these categories during Black Friday:

  • Exclusive Beauty and Fragrance Kits: When these sets go on sale, such as this Holiday Fragrance Sampler Kit, they offer more products for a better price than buying the full-sized individual item by itself. Many of these sets only come out during the holiday time too, which makes them perfect for gift giving or for trying new products without committing to a full-sized product.
  • Styling Tools: A good quality curling iron, flat iron or blow dryer can be pricey, especially if you want a top brand like T3, Babyliss Pro or Chi. Ulta has historically included big markdowns for styling tools during their sales event, so keep an eye out for these deals. If you’re looking to upgrade your current styling tools, Black Friday is the time to buy them.
  • Everyday Beauty and Grooming Essentials: Stock up on products for your everyday beauty and grooming routine to get the best bang for your buck all year round. Include your favorite cleanser, serum, moisturizers and eye treatments in your Black Friday shopping so you won’t put extra stress on your wallet when you run out of products.

How To Save More While Shopping at Ulta

Make your Ulta Black Friday coupons go even further with these additional savings tips.

  • Sign Up for Ulta Rewards and Make November Your Birthday Month: Sign up for Ulta’s free reward program and select November as your birthday month to earn 2X the amount of points during Black Friday shopping. Regularly, you will earn 1 point for every $1 spent, but during your birthday month, you can earn 2 points for every $1 spent. Points can then be redeemed for dollar-off rewards – i.e. 100 points gives you $3 off any item.
  • Shop Items with Free Gift Included: Get your bang for your buck by shopping items that come with a free gift. These free gifts are usually worth $39-70 and can also be given as a gift during the holidays.
  • Install the Slickdeals Browser Extension: The Slickdeals extension allows you to apply Ulta coupon codes effortlessly for even more savings. Don’t forget to download the app for even more Ulta deals and tips posted.
  • Spend $35 to Activate Free Shipping: If you don’t plan on spending $35, try to do a free in-store or curbside pickup instead at your local Ulta to avoid paying for shipping fees.
  • Use Additional Coupons: Black Friday ads will include a $3.50 off a $10 coupon, which can be used on your overall purchase. Ulta is strict on what their coupons can be used on, but you might be able to stack the coupon on a Black Friday deal.
  • Shop Discounted Gift Cards: Sometimes during the holidays, grocery stores offer discounted gift cards, including the Happy gift cards, which include many stores in one, including Ulta. Also, your current credit card might offer a bonus for buying gift cards. Finally, check eBay for discounted Ulta gift cards.

Before joining the digital world, I was a fashion and beauty magazine editor in NYC (yes, just like Carrie Bradshaw, with fewer shoes) where I worked with Aol, Business Insider, NBC, and oversaw many site launches. I left NYC for Maui to surf before relocating to sunny LA. Since joining Slickdeals, my proudest Frontpage deals have been Starbucks ground coffee (@$3/bag), a $30 parka (regularly $179), and a 12-pack of top-tier T.P. for $4. I'm a total foodie who once worked with the best restaurants in NYC (Le Bernardin and others). Also a very proud adopted dog owner obsessed with all things dogs.
