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:


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




Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and 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) /ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12345678.  Replace the 8 digit product id of the item you want to see with the sample id.

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: same here :(

@wwTraveler  I'm Diamond too.  I wonder what's going on.

Re: Ulta GWPs

A new brand is up!

Baxter of California

23 items, $16-$75 (though they don't seem to have loaded any inventory yet...everything I looked at is currently OOS 🙄)Screenshot_20180614-131230.png


Re: Ulta GWPs

Oh hey, I used to write their marketing material. Baxter of California is huge in Hong Kong! All the fancy salons use them for the men.

Re: Ulta GWPs

All three of the men's samplers are back; they still have yesterday's date in the description, so I don't know how long they'll hang around this time.

Oh man i knew this would happen subconsciously lol

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

@SAlyFitz  Me too, but they're gone now. Smiley Sad

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs


I'm seeing all of them available now

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  Thanks!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Retail me not $20 on purchases over $100 offer - FYI they are not counting reward redemption towards that purchase total.  I am SUPER annoyed I chose to use retailmenot when I could have used ebates or mrrebates and received 4 or 5% on my total purchase (including rewards). Instead, I got 0% back from retailmenot. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin What code did you use?/Was this a retailmenot member thing, or a code that can be used by going to Ulta directly?  I was hoping to use the $20 off $100 purchase to get it stacked with the points multiplier (if it's still going on!).

Re: Ulta GWPs


I'm not @itscarin, but I'm around and can help Smiley Very Happy


It's not a code. RMN also offers cashback, similar to ebates, mr rebates etc. I don't think their offers are always the same for everyone, and they change up quite frequently, but here's what I see now when I go there:


ulta rmn.png


When I click on "get reward" my offer is $10 back for $75+ or $15 back on $100+.


RMN pays out via paypal, and they're usually pretty speedy, IIRC. I've only used them a time or two, but it seems I had the payout within a couple weeks, or maybe a month?

Re: Ulta GWPs

You went above and beyond - as per usual @RGbrown!  Thanks!  I just learned that RMN is like eBates.  Interesting!  I just might have to join!

Re: Ulta GWPs


The trick to getting CB on pre-points instead of post-points seems to be using a coupon...if I don't use a q, I only get CB on what I spent, not my points redemption, even at Mr R and Ebates. I've never used RMN for CB at Ulta, so I can't say for sure it would work there too, but I'd give it a decent probability.


I typically only use points with a 20%, but on the rare occasion I redeem them without one, I make sure I can use the weekly q (3.50 off 15 or whatever it happens to be). Spending a few points on drugstore stuff gets me more CB, so I find it worth it.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Boo.  I hate when that happens, or when I forget to link to Ebates.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ClassicallyFab But, but, but... I just placed an order without this!  😭😭😭  As much as it hurts to leave behind a GWP, I have to admit I literally have a 20" x 20" x 36" box FULL of samples I don't need.  I just had a friend ask me the other day for a mascara recommendation... I could have passed these along. 


Sometimes I feel like a free-sample-piñata because if you held me upside down and hit me with a stick I'd bleed samples.  LOL  I've had a couple of situations where someone has just wishfully said "I need x" and then I happen to have an unopened sample of x on me.  Anyway, I need to walk away from the GWPs.  I probably (definitely) have too many.

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Your piñata analogy is priceless. So true. Thank you for your heartfelt honesty😇

Re: Ulta GWPs

Lol @itscarin!

Having products is a wonderful thing, and stacking GWP’s is super fun and exciting. It’s fun to share things, too. Actually, free samples have found me some of my all-time fave products!

For Christmas last year, I filled my boyfriend’s stocking to the brim with cologne samples. He was in heaven. Last week, he saw my sample stash because he wanted some serum, and he said, “I’m jealous, you’re making me feel like my stash is so little.”, lol. 

Lately, I’ve been only pulling the trigger when my desire is impossible to contain. I have So much stuff right now that I don’t want to expire. Hahaha.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Aw man, I'm kinda sad about this. I was all psyched up for the other one. Even though it's more drugstore-based, it's got a few things I was looking forward to trying, but I have all the Nars items 😄

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk Sweet!  This GWP inspired me to do a chart on the points system.  I'm debating whether or not I want to buy some ABH products to get 7.25x and this GWP. @RGbrown check it out!  LOL (I added it on the top of the thread behind a spoiler)
