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:


A list of in store coupons is here:


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


Links are not allowed.  In lieu of links, please read this:



Please 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) /prep-prime-fix?productId=xlsImpprod15921204  Replace the 8 digit product id of the item you want to see with the id of the product you're looking for.


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 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




Re: Ulta GWPs

Ooh, thanks! Do you think they'd stick around long enough to get the Beauty Break tomorrow? Are Beauty Breaks usually announced at night? I'm Central time so I always see them in the morning.

Re: Ulta GWPs

There is no hard end date listed. When that happens, they are while supplies last.


Night time Beauty Breaks are extremely rare. I've only seen a handful in my lifetime. I am on the West Coast, so you will see the Beauty Break before I do.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Oh, I thought Ulta was Pacific time - I think I'm thinking of Sephora 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ulta is Central time. They usually post the Beauty Breaks a little early, so around 4-5am Central. That is 2-3am here, so I am usually sleeping.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Oh, okay, thanks!

Re: Ulta GWPs



It's a repeat GWP as I'm sure I've seen this Philosophy gwp before.

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 4.05.10 AM.png

Gift includes:

  • Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash (1.0 oz)
  • Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion (1.0 oz)
  • Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi-Rejuvenating Cream (0.25 oz)
  • Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser (1.0 oz)
  • Time in A Bottle Repair Serum (0.1 oz)

Re: Ulta GWPs

For those of you also having a hard time finding it, I was finally able to find it by searching "beauty break". I'm not terribly excited about this one but I was afraid if I waited much longer I wouldn't get two of the urban decay sale products I wanted. Either way I'd have a $50 order, may as well get a free gift with it. 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

This is a pretty 'meh' beauty break... wondering if I should hold out until Saturday and see what else we get.

Re: Ulta GWPs

agree- haven't been excited about the last few bbs so i'm holding out. hoping something good pops up tomorrow. if not, i'm still good skipping on this one.

Re: Ulta GWPs

  • Platinum bag plus 20% off would have been amazing but i'm still excited to be able to order the new Naked palette with a discount plus get a beauty break. Thanks for the heads up @katieJiang!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I broke down yesterday when we didn't get the regular beauty break and used my 20%. I had $125  in rewards points burning a hole in my virtual pocket. I'm not even sorry I missed this BB tbh... Now if there's something good by Friday😬

Re: Ulta GWPs

@dd0214 im in the same boat.. i dont know what to do. Ill probably hold out.. even if I miss out on this I dont really care as I wouldnt use it lol.

Re: Ulta GWPs

The microdelivery wash is the only thing I might use here. Ulta has spoiled us! And now they are tightening the reigns.


I just wish that platinum bag could've coincided with our 20% off.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Did anyone else receive a random, but very welcome, surprise gift from Ulta as a thank you for being a platinum member??? They sent me a tarte eye shadow palette....I've been Sephora Rouge for just as long, if not longer than I've been an Ulta platinum member, and I've never received anything of the sort from Sephora lol the experience has def made me start t reconsider my spend at Sephora vs at Ulta

Re: Ulta GWPs

Last year Ulta sent me a 3 piece estee lauder set. It had 2 skin care deluxe size samples and a full size lipstick. It was a very nice surprise.
