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

Yeah, the lilac/blue silver bags are OOS. Don't forget to add the other bags I mentioned. And new points offer is avail...2x/3x points on all Ulta purrchases.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Omg nooooo. I was just about the check out and the snake bag went OOS

Re: Ulta GWPs

No!!!!! 😞

Re: Ulta GWPs

You're the best! Thank you! It's always so hard trying to make a purchase via mobile. 

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 :P)

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 🙂 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks @itscarin for starting this thread!! Hate that I'm late to the party. I'm such a creature of habit and don't usually check the main page for new threads. I go back to my bookmarked threads. Someone mentioned your thread in the dealstoogoodtopassup thread and I went hunting. Again ... thank u thank u thank u for putting all things Ulta in one place!! You rock!

Re: Ulta GWPs

There is a 24 piece bag now with $125 buy-in,

looks same/similar to recent snakeskin-look bag, is listed on their gwp page

Re: Ulta GWPs

FYI there is a link on beats to the $125 buy in bag which is the same as the platinum only bag that I posted a picture of a few days ago.  


I'm thinking about cashing in my points because there's a 20% off coupon now that works with T3 products so I kind of want to a curling iron and then stack the bags.


The $125 buy in bag is product id 14521439 sku 2309158



Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks....Is it working for you @itscarin? It's coming up OOS for me 😞

Re: Ulta GWPs

Can someone change my Ulta password for a month.


Re: Ulta GWPs

Lol! I need someone to change my password for the rest of this year! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Seriously!  Mine, too!  😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Tamara76 I just started shopping at Ulta in September and I'm $100 from Platinum. This is BAD.
