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.

could you pm me too please?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@pff19291 PM'ing you now! 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

New Platinum Perks! The elf cream should count as part of the $125 minimum for the platinum gift bag

UPDATE: It seems the gift bag is already sold out, even though they advertised it again in today's email 😞





Re: Ulta GWPs

Here is how my email looks like:



I was like: what!!?? It's OSS already!? why did you advertise an OOS bag??? just to tease us..!!?? 😛

Re: Ulta GWPs

Just popped in to post the PB&H early access!!   I love the little tin palettes - especially if they are scented!  



GWP bag also sold out for me....

Re: Ulta GWPs

The GWP bag was sold out yesterday afternoon when I tried to get it.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I got the platinum bag for $82. The gifts with purchase count towards the buy in dollar value.  The ud and  Smashbox are $20 right there and that's open regardless of what you buy. If you do 30 bucks or more with chart you get another $10 gift. I think urban decay also has a $10 gift with a $30 purchase.  Living proof has a $25 buy-in gift, so that's another $10.   Hypothetically your $30 urban decay purchase, your $30 tarte purchase, and your $25 living proof purchase would get you over that  $125 buy-in.  With the 20% off coupon that would get you down to $68 for the bag.


Re: Ulta GWPs

The Tarte eyeshadow palette looks really nice. I was looking at it in store yesterday and it was quite tempting.  

Re: Ulta GWPs

@alexasteph I picked up the Tarte palette a couple months ago and have been pleasantly surprised with it. I use a primer all the time, but fwiw, I think the shadows have good color payoff. The duo chromes I apply without an eyeshadow base, but the darker mattes, I like to layer on top of the lighter ones for better blending. I haven't used it during this 25 days of eyeshadow challenge bc I'm trying to use my less visited palettes and I'm really missing it.


At Christmas I travelled with this and one UD palette and was very happy. Probably could have travelled with it alone.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I've purchased tarte products before and I haven't loved them but I keep holding out hope I'll find something I like.  You can't go wrong with the highlighters, right?

Re: Ulta GWPs

It sounds like there's a spreadsheet going around.  Would anyone be so kind as to forward it to me.   Thank you so much,

Re: Ulta GWPs

@sarahshter I'll PM you the link, along with everyone else that asked on this page. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ZombieMetroAnt meeeee toooooo!! Idk what this spreadsheet is but I keep hearing about it and have been shopping at Ulta way more often recently.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you so much!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Wooo Ulta jackpot day!! I've been waiting with a full cart for a good opportunity to redeem my 2k points, and bag + 20% is obviously the best time. I got the entire shiny haul below for $10 out of pocket - "minus" $5 cash back! *happy dance*





Re: Ulta GWPs

Same here.  Definitely the right moment to cash out the 2K points.  20% off + huge sample bag (with some stuff I do really like).  $11.70 total.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Excellent haul @JazaChai ! I love saving up for Ulta hauls and you scored with all the freebies!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@JazaChai Nice! I love redeeming a ton of points like that! I did that for some Christmas gifts this past season.  I had some I could have used, but I'm replenishing my stock for a huge purchase later! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

just a PSA the coupon worked 3 times! (tried for a fourth and failed)

Re: Ulta GWPs

@winteriscoming Ugh - I get an error msg that my coupon has already been redeemed.... 😞


I wonder if there are different coupons - does yours include fragrance?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Tamara76yes! maybe they caught onto people using it multiple times and they fixed it? 😞
