Ulta has the best rewards program that I’m aware of-points that convert to dollars off – with opportunities for 2x, 3x, and 5x points throughout the year. I like Nordstrom’s rewards, since you can spend on anything, not just beauty. For items that are not urgent and are higher-end, I try to wait for a Neiman Marcus gift card event (spend X, get Y back to spend in the future). For basics, I’ll try to buy 1-2 backups of go-tos (like moisturizer or lip balm) when retailers run a 15-20% off promo.
