Ulta has an awesome no purchase necessary reward programs that give freebies during your birthday month. Here are the 2019 Ulta birthday gift up for grabs this year!
What are the Ulta 2019 Birthday Gifts?
Ulta is now offering a different product for each month of the year. In the past, they only had one option for the whole year! So far they have revealed each month’s gift up until August. They have been releasing new information on the birthday freebies every quarter.
I’m surprised that the price point for each month hasn’t been kept evener. For instance, the January Ulta Eyeshadow retails for $8.50 but then the April Tarte Lip Paint comes in at $20.00?

Ulta’s first offering for the year in January was two pans of Ulta brand eyeshadow. I’m definitely jealous of basically every other month shown here. I actually didn’t bother picking up my Ulta Beauty Eye Shadow freebie because I’m not a huge fan of their shadows. I’ve had repeat unpleasant experiences with their eyeshadows. They tend to be chalky, unpigmented, and just feel on the cheap side. I’m a little salty that February and March have brands like IT Cosmetics and N.Y.X but us January peeps are stuck with a dinky eyeshadow…. Although I have heard you can ask a sales associate if there are leftover gifts from previous birthday months.
How to redeem your Ulta Birthday Gift
Ulta emails a voucher to pick up the gift that you will need to show in store, this is usually sent the day after your birthday. You have 30 days to use the coupon. If you don’t get your email you can get in touch with Ulta Customer Service (866- 983-8582) to have it re-sent. I’ve had issues with missing emails in the past and their Customer Service line came in very handy!
Is the Ulta or Sephora birthday gift better?
I unfortunately usually get the short end of the stick with Ulta with the January birthday gift so I personally prefer the 2019 Sephora Birthday Gift selection. But depending on your birthday month Ulta might be better for you! If you want to see some ancient birthday gifts you can check out my review of the 2016 Ulta and Sephora offerings here.
I haven’t tracked down any other stores that offer worthwhile freebies for your birthday (yet). Most offers I see are purchase required. I’d love to hear of any freebies or bargains you know of!
