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

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

@itscarin As someone who's not used to shopping at Ulta, I absolutely love this thread. The deals too good to pass up is awesome as well but it can be a little overwhelming when I'm just looking for Ulta deals.

Do you think it would be possible to start posting the in stores coupons and oos ones in spoilers in your first post? I think it would make it a little easier but it's just an idea. 🙂 Thanks a lot to everyone who contributes to the community! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Good idea, I'll try it when I get some down time, but no promises.  😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

If anyone has an extra Pink Grapefruit mini Laura Geller blush they would like to trade, pm me! I have tons of stuff, and I can't justify buying another full-size blush. I have Tropic Hues in full size or deluxe size if anyone is looking for it!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@dd0214 I have Pink Grapefruit, send me your trade list 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks @itscarin!! This is a much better photo than what I was scoping out. 🙂 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hey everyone! Just want to ask if anyone knows of a site that we all can openly discuss ulta info on? I have learned alot in the little time I have been on this thread and greatly appreciate everyones help 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Perhaps MakeupAlley?  Also, Nouveau Cheap blog regularly posts Ulta deals with direct links.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I placed an order yesterday and got the Blue GWP bag, a Laura Geller freebie with a LG purchase and the Living Proof Trio...


then I received this e-mail...



"The pictured Living Proof items included in your Beauty Break offer have been substituted. You will receive a different Living Proof shampoo, conditioner & styling product."

I wonder what I will be getting now.

Re: Ulta GWPs

It's a 2oz LP Timeless Shampoo, 2oz LP Timeless Conditioner and a travel size LP Timeless mousse 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry to be a bother - I'm having trouble finding the new GWPs! Could someone PM me the links (in particular, the nail polish link)? I would be so grateful for the help! Thank you! 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hey @maddieb25 @KateGreen,  go to ulta, and click on any product.  Where it says "xlsImpprod", swap the original number out for the product id of the item you're looking for.  For example, original: xlsImpprod123456.  Swap the 123456 for the product id no.  You don't have to mess with any other part of the url.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I was in my Ulta store today and they had a sign up for special event in 2 weeks with makeup artist and preview of all the holiday sets (available to buy) there was one nice UD GWP and the SA told me there would be more..

Re: Ulta GWPs

Do they offer events at all the stores or only certain ones? Thanks 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry if this is a stupid question. I was in ulta earlier this week (I'm from Canada and we only have Sephora up north😢😢) are the gwp only for online?

i spent over $150 and only got 2 tiny foil samples and that's only after I asked for them. I did see other gwp with specific brands in the store but none of those fancy sample bags u guys posted?

Re: Ulta GWPs

Those GWP bags are only available online. They never have bags like that available in store (except for this month where ONE lucky winner at each store will get a $599 value bag, but there will be 4 online winners, too).


A lot of the brand specific items in the GWP section are available in store. Find these by typing Gift With Purchase into the search bar, because you get 1-2 extra offers over visiting the GWP section. There are so many available at any time that the reps cannot keep track. I remember what offers are available before going into the store and ask when they do not automatically grab them. It also helps if you have a catalog. They remove offers online when they run out, so the online listing is not always everything they have in the store. Catalogs are usually linked in the left margin (since you're in Canada, I assume you're not on the mailing list). 


Without a specific coupon or knowing about a specific perk, I am surprised you got the foils. They never really give me anything I do not ask for unless the rep knows of something I qualify for.


The only general offer I am aware of for stores right now is this Urban Decay Perversion mascara valid through 10/08/16. I cut out my email address, but anyone can use it since it has 10 numbers on the bar code. This offer has been out a while, so most stores will be out of stock anyway.

*On that note, if anyone is lucky enough to win an Ulta bag, please share it here, so we call all see it.
