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

Hi Ladies, I just placed my order for the first time from ULTA for the Tarte Tape Shape couple of days back. And of course the shade did not match me. It is extremely frustrating and the main reason why I don't shop there is because I have no ULTA near me I can't swatch anything and I can't return anything in store. I just read their return/exchange policy and there is no free return label and customer has to pay for shipping. What do most people do if you would like to exchange shades and how much does it cost to exchange or I have to return and repurchase again? The free shipping threshold is also $50 which is quite high considering not having free returns. Please let me know what you ladies do. It was my first time shopping at ULTA and I don't really like their not customer friendly policies.

Re: Ulta GWPs

We mostly all have stores in our neighborhoods.  Ordering make-up online along with guessing shades like you did, well, there are risks.


The shipping is only like $2 for a small item. 


You will only have to pay that tiny shipping fee. Ulta will have to eat the entire cost since they won't be able to put the item back on the shelves.


In the future just try to get samples before placing your order.  I know some people have requested samples on this forum.  We would be more than happy to help those in this situation. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hm, just realized that Nov 29th was the last freebie Ulta sent out (Laura Geller mascara)....Hopefully its just a dry spell. 0.JPG

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ZombieMetroAnt When I was in picking up a gift the other day I mentioned that I hadn't gotten any freebie e-mails like I usually do and they gave me a couple free mascaras. 

I always got them before but haven't gotten any since my e-mails stopped and had to be reset. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ulta sent me a 3rd 20% off coupon today 🙂 I wonder if there'll be a better GWP then this men's gift...#selfish 🙂 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I just checked my email and they sent me a 3rd one as well. I had to double check to make sure all the codes were different.  My email subject was "Lucky! Get 20% off again!!" I Hope a good GWP appears soon.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Just got my mystery bag! All deluxe sizes and some nice brands...I'm happy I took a chance on this one! 😅😜😬


This order shipped from Dallas, fwiw!


ABH lip gloss is Kristen like everyone else so far. Too Faced Melted lipstick is chocolate honey.



Re: Ulta GWPs

This is the best one I've seen!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ulta is having some GOOD deals today!! Both online and in-store! (I guess there's no beauty break today..)

Today December 14 Only | Holiday Hot Buys up to 55 Percent Off on these select items. Valid 12.14.16 through 11:59 PM CT.





Re: Ulta GWPs

Needed a few small gifts, so this was perfect.  Also, got my son his favorite scent.  Think I am finally done with gifts!  Best part was using my 20% + 2000 pts + gift card so happy wallet today.

Re: Ulta GWPs

For the curious: My 17-pc Starry Night GWP bag from 12/5 arrived basically as pictured (Tarte concealer pods got swapped out for maracuja oil). The bag is cute and by far my favorite item 🙂 I put other products on it so I didn't want to show the whole thing and cause confusion


Sometimes I redeem GWPs that I know I won't really use. In this case, I only wanted the bag & BTW foundation. I guess that's why the Trade thread exists 🙂



Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks for sharing!  I can't wait to see the mystery gift bags from Sunday night!

Re: Ulta GWPs

You guys, I'm looking for a 20% off code/printable coupon.  I used mine and then my mom told me she wants some IT brushes for Christmas.  If you have one you aren't using, I'd be so grateful!  

Re: Ulta GWPs

@carrieloulou if it's for your mom, then you can have mine Heart
