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

Thanks for posting!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Woohoo! Thanks for posting! Just placed another order. My daughter loves the Whish Body gel/wash and with it being BOGO 50% off, it's a great time to stock up and get all these freebies!

Re: Ulta GWPs

You're welcome! I'm sure your daughter will be very happy Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs


FYI, regardless of which bag you choose, you still get the Living Proof hairspray, shampoo, and conditioner.  It automatically populates in drop down menus from the beauty bag.  Does that make sense?


The product ID for the first bag is 14791111 and the second bag is product ID 14791109

Re: Ulta GWPs

I just saw this too. The living proof x3 adds as a gwp when you add the beauty bag. Not sure why they did it that way...  Probably not going to be an additional beauty break day? Should I wait to order? 

Re: Ulta GWPs

The gift bag and Living Proof set ARE today's Beauty Break. I just got the email.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I was wondering the same thing...

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin Can you please let me know the link for the buxom? For some reason its not working for me when I try to enter that item number into a link!

Re: Ulta GWPs

pm'ed you.  I tried it searching for it by the product id and and the sku number and the item number but I couldn't find it on the ulta site.


I tried again clicking on a random product and inserting the product id, and it worked for me.  Is anyone else having trouble using this method?

Re: Ulta GWPs


Searches are hit or miss for me so I used the base url I listed in another post and the product id. I did not have a problem with this method.


URL + ProductID (not to be confused with SKU ID)


Re: Ulta GWPs

That's how I found it. By changing the item number in the url. Worked for me. I didn't get that one through an email.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I just placed an order & was able to get one of the LMM bags; also it's 2x/3x the points!


(Thank you Ulta to sticking to the same routine as last year; extra points make me happy Smiley Tongue)

Re: Ulta GWPs

I can't find the LMM bag. Where is it?

Re: Ulta GWPs



Sorry I didn't catch your message sooner; this is still active.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Euradyce Check the dealstoogoodtopassup volume 4 thread...the links are posted there. Sounds like links get removed from this thread. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I think it's just links that I post.  Everyone else seems to be doing ok. I'm still not sure if they're going after this thread harder because it's an ulta thread or if they just like picking on me.  I know I've posted PLENTY of links in my time and I've joked about slipping them past the mods before.  


The working theory is they police the person who started the thread hardest, so they'll just click on my user id and go through all my posts to see if I've posted a link.  


The truth is, I don't think they moderate the board too hard in general.  We've all seen plenty of spam come through here.  There's been all sorts of drama that people partake and it doesn't get shut down until people have really gone above and beyond!


I'm sure it's a bad look for them to explain to their higher ups why people are posting links to ulta on a sephora message board.  LOL  I mean, I get it.  But if that's the policy they want to go with, change the TOS to specifically reflect that. Say "no references to retailers that operate within a competitive environment of sephora" and then go ahead and remove links and email addresses and references to all other competitors, eg the barney 's thread which I think are being gamed by one very industrious Sales Associate at Barney's named Xiomara.  

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin  Ha!  I was thinking the exact same thing about Xiomara.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I've seen the same people post cheat links in the deals thread over and over again. They either never get warnings or ignore them with no repercussions. The last time I posted a cross link to a Sephora thread about someone running a study (and she got permission to post it), I received a pm warning, and my post was removed. Then, they deleted her thread which was up for days until I linked to it. The thread owners are DEFINITELY treated more harshly. I am so restricted in what I can post. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I was wondering why I kept seeing posts of people offering to PM links to others, I had no idea this was going on.


They've done this even when you separate the link, like I did above?


There are more important things that they should be monitoring, IMO Smiley Happy 

Re: Ulta GWPs





Re: Ulta GWPs

Dang, I ordered too fast and did not get this! I also wanna try this one. But with 2 bags (with 3 or more inside that I wanna try) and mascara, I ain't complaining lol.


Thank you for sharing and y'all lovely ladies enjoy your purchases! You guys rock! Smiley Happy
