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

Thanks for the heads up on this one! I got both gwp bags, the free UD mascara sample, and used the $10 PayPal offer to bring my total down to $66 + tax. Could not resist.


I think this gwp colab bag will go pretty fast so I wouldn't wait if you're thinking about it.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@JennVA can you get both $75 buy in bags? In one purchase?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@AnneMCC Yes, you can get both bags with one $75 purchase.  :D:D:D:D

Re: Ulta GWPs

Wow!  It let me put both beauty bags in my cart for the same $75 buy-in!  Nice!  Thanks for posting that gift!

Ulta Beauty Break



Re: Ulta GWPs


Got my swag from last week's beauty break.  The Becca 4 piece set plus the $125 buy in GWP.  It is HUGE!  The bag is actually cute enough that I could see myself using it outside of the house.  It is huge though, and I generally limit my stuff to a couple of credit cards, id, and cash when going out... and maybe a lip product and eyelash glue and a black liquid liner but it's still big enough to carry like a couple of lean cuisines.  LOL

Re: Ulta GWPs

Loved your comment about the Lean Cuisines! Too funny! And completely agree...great size and I could also see myself using it out of my house!

Re: Ulta GWPs

That Becca was an awesome Beauty Break. It was like a kit!

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!
