There are several reasons Ulta is a steadily-growing beauty behemoth, one being that it's constantly giving back to its customers. Walk into the orange-tinted brick-and-mortars or click into the retailer's website, and you'll undoubtedly find killer sales, enticing gifts-with-purchase, and a generous rewards program you'd be completely remiss not to join.
Saving money at Ulta is a year-round gig—music to our ears and our bank accounts, but during the Black Friday stretch, it can feel like we're practically stealing our favorite products. This year in particular, we're seeing steeply discounted products like $10 prestige mascara and a Byrdie-favorite dry shampoo for just $12 (regularly $23).
As soon as you're done hanging with out-of-town relatives and entertaining the same questions on repeat (ah, the holidays), consider a quick sneak into a side room to browse the rest of these incredible deals, including a free laser-cut makeup bag filled with nine Ulta Beauty products when you spend $60 and free shipping on orders over $35.
