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.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I place a lot of Ulta orders, and when I place big one, with multiple GWPS, its always split up when shipped. Last time I made a big GWP/order, it all shipped together and I was surprised.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I've had a lot of orders split, it's pretty normal with Ulta. I've even had orders split into three packages before.

Re: Ulta GWPs

My orders get split a lot and the only time I've ever had them cancel is right away before anything ships so I think you'll be fine

Re: Ulta GWPs

They split my last order for the first time and I got the boxes a couple of days apart. The GWP bag and one item shipped from Texas and the rest shipped from PA, as usual.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Tarte and the IT cream are now OOS.JazaChai is right though I've had many orders split ship before just fine Smiley Happy

Really wanted to try that cream oh well. Anyone know when Platinum's get the 20% off coupon that includes prestige brands?

Re: Ulta GWPs

It will be fine. I've had my orders split a bunch of times. I think it's just inventory management; they try to ship to you from the closest warehouse, but sometimes parts of your order are OOS there so they ship from a different warehouse instead, or try to balance stock levels at different warehouses so they're not shipping just a one-item GWP in a separate box, things like that.


My theory is supported by the way your order is split; the one I made today is also split the same way. The Tarte mascara and skincare bag are in a separate, later box from the Lancome, IT Cosmetics, and Philosophy GWPs. So I think that's what's going on.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I've had lots of orders split, only ever lost one thing, a small single gwp that ran out of stock

Re: Ulta GWPs

You will get it!  This is also the first time my order has been split.


I placed 2 orders and it is coming in 4 boxes.  They all  shipped earlier  today.


I will add that my Ulta orders have been shipping the same day.  Within hours of ordering.  


Maybe Ulta got another location......changed the way they do things..........?????  Things have been arriving within the same week now as opposed to average 10-14 days from last year. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I just tried right now and the 3 Timeless LP products are popping up with the bag instead of the LP PHD and hairspray products.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I totally missed this post. The same happened to me. I placed my order at around 7:30 am EST.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks for your order - it will be on its way to you soon.

The pictured Living Proof items included in your Beauty Break offer have been substituted. You will receive a different Living Proof shampoo, conditioner & styling product.


I got this in an email after my order maybe they just advertised the wrong products.. Or they ran out

Re: Ulta GWPs

I also received this email. I am thinking it was a mistake that the other shampoo and conditioner were listed.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I got this email too many hours after my order 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks for the followup, @CRAZY4MASCARA Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

The timeless products are the ones showing in my email, not the PHD.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I only get the Timeless items as well. I wonder how the system decides who gets Timeless and who gets PHD (unless Timeless came in after PHD went OOS).

Re: Ulta GWPs

I think it was just a "switch." I had the 16 piece bag in my cart from before with the PHD items but when I went back to it now after a few hours, the PHD items were still in my cart but it allowed me to select the new Timeless items. Unfortunately, all of the previous PHD GWP reverted back to a value and wasn't free lol

Re: Ulta GWPs

These bags are starting. Link on affiliate sites, like ebates.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@notcreative Are these not active yet? 

Re: Ulta GWPs

They were supposed to go live yesterday, but they were not working when I checked. Ulta either forgot to change the start date when it listed the offer or forgot to remove the charge. Since the start date is listed as 09/27/16, I am unsure when it will actually start. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you for sharing!


 Note that you can't search by item number.  You have to search by product id.  If you click on any old product (a bar of soap for example) and swap out the product id number for the id number below you'll be able to find it.


Product id 13811079



Product id 13811077
