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
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
Basquiat is ringing up half-off in stores if you're on the hunt for it now that it has disappeared online. I was on the fence about the Tenant palette, decided I wanted it after it went on sale, but managed to miss it everywhere. Saw it in store today, steeled myself to ask if they'd at least match what it went on sale for on the website (or pay full price), and was overjoyed when it rang up $19.50. I almost cried 😂
Re: Ulta GWPs
So, I gave in and placed an order. I'm hoping I'll get $15 back through coupon cabin, but they're so finicky when coupon codes are used. I also held off on using points and some gift cards that I have because I have 3x on all purchases and 5x on ABH. I was getting the Prada Cologne anyway eventually and I really love Moonchild so the 5x on ABH Aurora really pushed me over. I also have 5x on Jack Black, which my BF loves, but he's pretty stocked up right now.
Earned: 566 points
I'm sad that they changed the way the freebies and sales count (or rather, don't count) towards the total spend, but it was nice white it lasted.
Let's just hope that this package doesn't get misdelivered and presumably stolen by whatever jerk received it instead. It's been a month and a half long nightmare.

Re: Ulta GWPs
Be sure to check your bonus offers; I got 2x everything (3x platinum) now through the 17th, and 5x Laura Geller through the 10th. I think everyone should also have 5x Acqua Di Gioia as that's this month's Fragrance Crush.
I don't see any new site wide gwp's, but there are a couple of decent brand specific ones. Free jack Black lip balm w/any Jack Black purchase (7.50 lip balms count, so that basically becomes bogo), and free clinique for men moisturizer w/any clinique for men purchase (PSA $4.25 for this one). Nice cheapies to pad an order if you are looking for something to hit $50 free shipping
Oh, and Dose of Colors is up
