I’ve gotten a ton of e-mails asking when is the Ulta 20% Off coupon coming because I really wanna do an order. I totally get it. I did a little bit of damage at Sephora during the Rouge Event but I was actually overall really good. There just wasn’t anything I really needed. I did get some skincare both old and new items like the new Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer with Skin-Smoothing Peptides. But overall, my haul was kind of boring.
I do have a few bits and bobs I want from Ulta though at the moment and 20% sure would feel good right about now. Ulta did make an announcement several weeks ago that 20% was delayed and I promise it isn’t about you it’s all about them.
I should note Sephora had a statement on their site during the Rouge Event that stuff would ship a bit slower due to COVID but they got me my order surprisingly fast. That being said it could be they weren’t overwhelmed with orders and maybe that’s why it went so quickly. What was your experience if you shopped the event?
Ulta though, that might be another thing entirely. A lot of Sephora’s customer base have migrated to Ulta for many of their purchases and that could mean a sale would create issues for them. What issues? The issue of not only keeping their fans and consumers happy but also, keeping their warehouse workers safe. A sale right now would create a lot of pressure for their warehouses and it could overwhelm their warehouse workers. Everyone wants to be safe at the moment but not everyone is in a position where they can be safe. Some people have to be out there ringing up your groceries, delivering your packages, making your pizza, dropping your Uber Eats order on the porch, and most importantly, be in a warehouse packaging up your items and preparing them for shipment.
I’m sure Ulta will launch that 20% off coupon soon and the fact they are delaying it isn’t about you I promise! It’s likely them just wanting to keep their employees safe and healthy so they can go home to their families at night. We need to get the economy raved back up again but we also, have to make sure all our essential workers are safe while we do that.
For now, let’s make our virtual wish lists and wait on that coupon!
