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: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Ulta-GWP-Google-Spreadsheet-Request-Thread/m-p/2753063#M11...

 

A list of in store coupons is here: https://community.sephora.com/t5/Savvy-Shoppers/Ulta-GWP-Coupons-no-chatter/td-p/3866521

 

Let's keep this thread on topic!

 

Ulta points refresher (because yes, it is that complicated):

 

Spoiler

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

Spoiler

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

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.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I totally caved and just bought  a T3 curling iron with the 20% off coupon and the 3x points and the LMM beauty bag.  I am still sitting on 2000+ points but I figured now was the time to spend money because there was 3x the points.  

 

Are you all ready for some hardcore rationalizing?  T3 curling iron is 20% off up front.  I earned 387 points for it.

387/2000 roughly equals 19%.  19% of $125 is about $24.  So the $150 curling iron cost me $120, I get $24 back, and then I also got the LMM beauty bag.  The only thing I'm interested in over there is the liquid liner.  I can never have too many liquid liner pens!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I've been waiting for a 20% off to purchase the T3 Whirl tapered iron and your post made me realized the current 20% off works on it! Ended up getting mine for around $5 because of points + cash back + Ulta giving me a gift card for a missing Becca Beauty Break 😄 😄

Re: Ulta GWPs

That sounds like a sweet deal to me!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Can anyone tell me how to get the ulta too faced melt it off mascara to show up as free? Even when I add $25 worth of merchandise, it still doesn't go from $25 to free. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@pinyo I don't think the offer is active anymore. 😞 But the new snakeskin bag and LoveMelisaMichelle bags are still in stock....at least they were about 15 mins ago.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ahhhh that makes sense. 

 

Guess ill place my order without it. Thank you! 

 

The other sample bag of blue and silver or lilac and silver is OOS too right? 

 

Sorry im on my mobile, so it's hard to find it. 

 

@petitesweetmom

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!
