Ulta GWPs

This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only.  Share ulta promos here.  


Please do NOT post requests for the spreadsheet in this thread.  Please post requests for the Ulta GWP google spread sheet in this thread:


Let's keep this thread on topic!



Ulta points refresher (because yes, it is that complicated):

Item #1 - $53.50

Item #3 - $108.50 (and is eligible for a certain item/brand 5x multiplier)

* There is also a 5x all purchase multiplier and you are platinum so you get 1.25x

Total Spent - $162

Base Points Earned - 162

Platinum .25x Earned - 41 (162 * .25 = 40.5, and rounding up)

5x All Purchases Earned - 648 (it ends up being 4x because you don't count the base points)

5x Item/Brand Earned - 434

Total Points Earned - 1285




Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and add product id numbers and sku numbers so people can find items on ulta.  

Just to clarify, there is an item number that Ulta lists on the website, right under the picture of the item.


The product id is the number given to the item in the URL.  So Ulta's site follows this formula of having the url and then the very last part of the url is "productId=xlsImpprod" followed by an 8 digit number.  If you use that "productId" number you can get to the page of any item on ulta.  It's not a search, but the direct url to the page.  Click on any product, and then view the url in the address bar.  It will look like this: ulta's website (not using the actual domain because BT admins don't like that) /ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12345678.  Replace the 8 digit product id of the item you want to see with the sample id.

My very unofficial Ulta point multiplier to approximate percent discount chart:

(This is a number where I use the multiplier to divide by 2000 to see how many dollars I would have to spend in order to redeem a $125 reward.  E.g. 2000 points divided by 1 point multiplier means I have to spend $2000 to get the $125 reward.  Adding how much I had to spend ($2000) + the reward ($125), and then using the reward ($125) to divide the total purchase ($2125), I get a discount of approximately 6% based on the total purchase.  Note: the total purchase is based on the concept that you are spending just enough to reach the next $125 reward and combines the reward value with how much money you had to spend to get that reward.

Beauty Break is up! Pimprod2008285


And a new brand is up this afternoon as well!





Ulta GWPs

I'm Ulta Diamond & often advise others to consider buying Ulta stock, but the $150 James Charles brushes by Morphe have me reconsidering why I should buy anything from them moving forward based on principle. Essentially, Ulta & Morphe have no business offering $150 sets of makeup brushes geared for an audience that largely cannot afford it, but will want it even if it means charging it, which is irresponsible. Why? The price, the product, and the number of brushes are insanity. No one needs this much to look good, let alone young consumers. Most appallingly, the price belongs to quality brush makers who know how to make brushes; not figureheads with no knowledge of what goes into a brush that will last for decades. You failed, Ulta. /end rant

Re: Ulta GWPs

I wouldn't let Ulta offering that JC set upset you so much. You have to assume that people who buy makeup and skincare products have enough common sense to buy what works for them, and give them the same consideration you'd want for yourself. Hell'd be freezing over before I'd buy it, but that's me; I get that for someone else, for whatever reason that's unique to them, it's something they'd like.

Life is so much easier when we give other people the leeway we want for ourselves, don't you think? Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

I totally get where you're coming from, and believe me I have no love for James Charles - but if you do the math it's less than $4.50 a brush (34 brushes for $150). I get the idea behind what Morphe is going for - "buy this set and you will have a full collection of every brush you'll need".  

Re: Ulta GWPs

A busy night! We have a new brand, two new multipliers, and a new gwp!

Ulta hair gwp / some online only or today only

Re: Ulta GWPs

I have a $15 off 50 code. Tag me in response and I’ll PM it to you.  

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Indy701 , If you still have the coupon code, I'd love to have it. Thanks!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@anabelle  Just PMed you 😁. Happy shopping 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Indy701 ,


Thank you so much!!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Since Ulta is carrying Kiko, I thought I'd share my latest haul from Kiko direct.  Unless you are using points, you probably would get a better deal at Kiko than Ulta.

Cross posting from the July Hauls thread.

Kiko Milano haul- I had a 20% off of sale coupon. I'm going to try very hard for this to be my last haul of the summer.

Top left- Ocean Feel Highlighter 02 Virtuous Golden Rose- $10.40; top right- Beyond Limits Eye Shadow Palette 03 Positive Attitude- $8.51.

Middle left-Velvet Touch Creamy Blush Stick -07 Natural Rose- $7.94; beneath that are the Creamy Colour Comfort Lip Liner- $5.29 each, in 314- Marsala, 315- Intense Mauve, 316- Milk Chocolate.

Front right top- Unlimited Stylo lipstick- $7.94 each, 04- Pearly Rose Mauve and 05 Scarlet Red.

Left top to bottom: Unlimited Stylo 05 Scarlet Red and 04 Pearly Rose Mauve

Right side swatches, left to right: Creamy Comfort lip liner- 314 Marsala, 315 Intense Mauve, and 316 Milk Chocolate.


All of the lip liners are creamy and have a vanilla scent like Charlotte Tilbury.

The blush actually dries to a powdery finish; it's not tacky at all.  It does have a mild floral powdery scent.

Those Unlimited Styloes- I washed my hands four times with Dawn dishwashing liquid to get rid of the swatches, but they are still on my hand!  A little worn, but not by much.  The liners held on for two washes, but the eyeshadows cleaned up easily.  They are very smooth, if light.

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp




Re: Ulta GWPs

Looks like Ulta is testing a new Store Pickup option now.  Doesn't look like you can mix and match with online only or items not available at your local store in a single order.  Not so good for all the BB and GWP bags at this time but good option for when you have a last minute coupon or multiplier order that is under the free shipping threshold.  Didn't see this option there when I placed my order a few days ago. 



Re: Ulta GWPs

New multiplier!



Re: Ulta GWPs

Aargh! My head hurts from trying to figure this out! If any of you math wizards could help me out I would appreciate it!


I’m a diamond. Is it smarter to buy 2 Estée Lauder foundations $86now and get $15 off plus 7X points OR

wait until 10X day when  EsteeLauder has been 10x in the past and hopefully will be again!


Thanks for your help. I’ve been trying to figure this out for an hour! 

Re: Ulta GWPs


Scenario 1: $86 x (1.5 (diamond points) + 6 (multiplier for diamond - base)) - $15 = $71 * 7.5 = 532.5 points will round down to 532 points for $71 spent and $86 worth of merch.


Scenario 2: $86 x (1.5 + 9) = $86 * 10.5 = 903 points for $86 spent and $86 worth of merch.


Which is the better deal?  Well 10.5x points is always better than 7.5x points.  7.5x points is like 32% off your total order.  10.5x points is like 40% off.


If you want to factor the $15 coupon into your total value calculation, it's like you're spending $267 to get 2000 points, and then getting $407 worth of merch (factoring in the $125 coupon as part of your total value of merch).  If you spend $267 and get $407 worth of merch, it's like you're getting 35% off.  (267/407 = .65)  


So even with the $15 off coupon the 10.5x deal is still better because you would spend $190 to get $320 worth of merch which is like 40% off.  The 10.5x deal is also better because you wouldn't need to spend $75+, so if you only want/need one foundation, that's way better than buying one for use and one for back up.


Hope that helps.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Today: spend $71, get 532 points (at 2000/$125, points are worth $33)


10x day: spend $86, get 903 points (at 2000/$125, points are worth $56)


But really, the math is kinda moot because 10x is a better return than 7x, always always always. But the better deal...well that varies by person 😋 Other factors to consider:

-how quickly do you need/want it? If not in a hurry, hold out.

-there may or may not be a coupon on 10x day; budget can make a difference, so if a lower outlay of cash is a priority, go with today.

-10x day isn't a for sure thing. I know the EL foundation is usually included...but who's to say Ulta won't swap it up this year? If not getting 10x in August is going to put you in a bind and potentially force you buy with NO deal, hedging your bet and buying today might be the better option.



Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown @itscarin  I cannot thank you both enough for your help! I am a retired kindergarten teacher and our math was much simpler! Lol 😂 You have both saved me a lot of time, aggravation and money!🤗. I have several of the foundations  and my wallet could use a break after so many deals this month. I’ll just wait and see if it goes 10x.  If it doesn’t there’s always  a 20% off code at Ulta or dept. store deals with  gwps. Thanks ladies ! You are the best! ❤️
