DON'T GET THIS CARD

WORST CREDIT CARD EVER! I DIDN'T RECEIVE MY FIRST BILL SO AFTER 10 DAYS FROM THE PAYMENT DUE DATE THEY SENT MY ACCOUNT TO "COLLECTIONS" AND MADE ME PANIC. THEY SAID THEY WOULD DO ME A "COURTESY" BY WAIVING A $27 LATE FEE BUT THEY FAILED TO MENTION A HIDDEN FINANCE CHARGE THAT LATER SHOWED UP WHEN THEY DEBITED MY BANK ACCOUNT. I CALLED TODAY TO FINALLY CLOSE MY ACCOUNT. NOT WORTH THE SUPPOSED ULTA POINTS BECAUSE THOSE DOUBLE BOUS POINTS NEVER GOT POSTED TO MY ULTA REWARDS ACCOUNT THAT I'M AWARE OF.

S.o.l. If something goes wrong and you try to contact them

Just this past month alone has been awful with this card. I applied for a credit increase WEEKS ago so I could have more for Christmas. They said I would get a notice for it within 7 days in the mail. Nope never happened. Instead my available credit dropped to $0 even though I actually have $700 of $1000 available. Been like this for a couple weeks. Tried to contact them and they responded with a “hold on we have to look into this” and no follow up going on for another week. Then tried using my ulta account (seperate from the card. Using the card gets your account point tho). Was getting some stuff on sale for Xmas. Went through checkout, used all of my acquired points and a gift card to get said Xmas gift. Then suddenly all my points were gone but no evidence of a transaction? I called them and they said I just need to wait because sometimes they’ll put your points on hold to check that everything is in stock? Ok sure so I waited. Funny thing is it’s been several days and Christmas is in a couple days but no proof of a transaction. Just missing points.Tried to message them (probly going to attempt calling after this, it’s just incredibly hard to get to a human) about all these issues. Absolutely no messages can be sent to them at this time? I don’t know if the system is down is just says “sorry, try using the secure message center if you can’t send messages” FROM THE SECURE MESSAGING SCREEN.Funny how when they mess up it’s impossible to get answers from them. But god forbid you’re a day late to pay they’ll call you all day to get payment. Literally I’m a day late from my payment due date and they’re calling me. Ironic. Maybe this is just the December from hell to use ulta. Got this card for regular purchases so I could build points but damn I wish I went for a more reliable credit company than comenitySide note approval is easy I had a score of upper 600’s and was approved for $1000 instantly. For anyone wondering

❤️ Love My Ulta Mastercard ❤️

My daughter introduced me to Ulta a few years ago. I finally found the “spot” where I am able to purchase all beauty items for my daughter and of course me! When asked if I would like to get their card I immediately signed up. I have not experienced one issue with my account and have been provided with superior customer service when I activated my card. Love earning points to redeem on products that I am purchasing. I purchase everything we need, pay off the amount in the same week, and never worry about interest or fees! I pay online, not through an app, and my payment process the day I select Submit Payment.Do not have a credit card if you are going to “forget” you borrowed their money to finance your needs and do not pay your bill on time. Paying your bills in a timely manner is your responsibility and it is known as “adulting”.

Not great

I used the card a few times within a few days time span and then it started to get declined. I didn’t even have a payment due yet. It was super embarrassing.I called and was told that all my purchases were held as possible fraud. There were three of them and two had been in person. It was such a hassle to get them approved that I eventually hung up after telling them that I’d just use a more reliable and less embarassing card for my future purchases. I had asked them why I didn’t get an alert instead of the dreaded “decline” at the check out. They said if it happens outside their hours, they just put a lock on the card and don’t notify you - they expect you to call. I told them in this amazing time of technology that it’s shocking they don’t email or text. Due to the large number of spam calls, I don’t answer known calls even if they had tried to call me. Most legitimate places do not call, but will alert you to contact them.I have excellent credit and a large limit - it was truly a ridiculous situation. The purchases ranged from $14 to $247. I’m disgusted by this antiquated approach to verify your identity and purchases and certainly don’t want to have to go through that every time I use the card.

ULTA Credit Card is Terrible

This card is NOT worth any of it's benefits. I have had terrible experiences using this credit card. You cannot make your payments in person at the stores, their mobile app doesn't work half of the time to pay your bill on, and their store associates are not knowledgeable about the app. On top of that, I made on of my payments on my due date over the phone and they stated that my payment was late, since it was processed at night. I was under the impression that my account had been paid in full and then was traveling for over a month. I was then assessed a late fee (that I did not know about) along with interest. Since I was out of town and under the impression that my account was current, I did not pay the late fee balance and I was assessed an additional late fee. When I returned and opened my mail, my account balance was almost $70 just from the 2 late fees and interest on them. I called and explained the situation and was told there was nothing that they could do and that their system would not allow to take off a late fee, but they may be able to take off a $15 of one of them. When I asked to then speak to a supervisor the lady said she would try and take off a whole late fee and then she told me she was able to do just that and she removed one of the late fees so that I did not speak to a supervisor. I then stated that I was really unhappy with the entire experience and that this credit card makes it extremely difficult to make your payments and that I felt it was really unfair that I was assessed those fees and interest and she said that is all that she could do. When I asked if I could change my due date to the end of the month for future bills she stated her system would not allow her to do that since my account was past due. Terrible. No other credit card company that I have EVER used is like that.
