Best Ulta Black Friday and holiday deals for 2021:
How do we select Black Friday deals from Ulta?
- We only choose products that meet our standards for coverage. These items come from trusted brands that we know and use or have tested.
- The deal price must be better than the retail price or the normal sale price, and if we write about it, we’ve made sure it’s not available somewhere else for cheaper.
What is Ulta’s return policy?
Ulta accepts in-store purchase returns within 60 days of the original purchase with the receipt. Online orders can be returned in-store or sent back by mail, though you will need to cover the shipping costs.
Can I shop at the Ulta store near me?
So far, yes. But with public health in mind, we’d recommend shopping online. You’ll also save yourself from lines that won’t move as quickly as in previous years.
How does Ulta stand up to the competition on Black Friday?
Ulta carries products that Sephora doesn’t and vice versa (for instance, the cult-favorite Tarte Shape Tape concealer is only available at Ulta). We’ll be price-matching between the retailers, but we’d recommend checking both Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom for your best discounts on the products you really want. But, Ulta’s additional coupons do give the retailer an edge on beauty products. Other retailers may automatically price match, but they often don’t adjust to lower in-cart prices you can get from coupons.
