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: Ulta GWPs

If anyone is redeeming for their bday at Ulta they gave out the Bareminerals gen nude matte and Beauty by popsugar Be Racy liquid velvet lip as well. I was so surprised when I got home to look in the bag. It was a last minute purchase to take advantage of the 4x pts and earth therapeutics buy 2 get 1 free. Smiley Happy

Also, if you are going to spend $75 at Ulta and want to save your 20% coupon for another purchase, you can use the $15 off $75 instead.

Nice! I never got mine in October. Curious if they will still honor it now that there's finally an ulta opening near me next week??? Btw, my hubby is addicted to that foot spray and the matching lotion too.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Anyone redeem a diamond welcome gift in store or online lately? Wondering if there’s a benefit of stopping while I’m out today! Thanks in advance! 😊❤️👍

Re: Ulta GWPs

I redeemed mine in store recently. It was a Lancome Rosy Skin Cream 0.17 oz and Clinique High Impact Mascara.


Like others, mine was a bummer to me. Not very interesting samples. And another mascara... On top of my birthday gift, which was a mascara for the 2nd year in a row.


Given that we are seeing many repeats in the sample bags now, maybe wait until early next year, like someone else suggested. I hope you get something new and different! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I redeemed mine about a week ago and got a tiny Porefessional and mini PUR mascara. WHOMP WHOMP


If you're able, I'd definitely hold off a bit to see if something better is available after the new year.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Im going to try the wait, the lure of the diamond gift is very tempting. Thanks for letting us know! @quspork

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hi @mermaid805 I havent yet, but I heard they give out full sizes in the beginning of the year? Mine expires in Feb and I was thinking to redeem at the end of Jan to see if its a better gift than for Dec.

I got a smashbox photo finish primer (green, I think) las...

I got a smashbox photo finish primer (green, I think) last April. Pretty sure it was full sized, but it may have been a .5?

FYI - There are two buxom sets still on sale (50% off, today only) - black tie tease & the lip balm set. Cranberry bag gwp ($65 buy in) is still available, too.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Got a 20% off code in the app, but it's the same code as the email one.

Thanks for the heads up! Same way with the birthday codes...

Thanks for the heads up! Same way with the birthday codes. Seems like they are often different otherwise. Guess I'll roll the dice and save it for PPerk day tomorrow, just incase they drop a few goodies. Oh I hope they do... as that Sephora $25 off $75 is much more tempting deal. Its a wallet tug-o-war!

Re: Thanks for the heads up! Same way with the birthday codes...

@alexalicious Haha wallet tug-of-war is the perfect way to describe it!

Re: Ulta GWPs


I received an email from Ulta with a 20% off code for any purchase. There are very few exclusions. It includes Benefit Brow Bar and fragrances. The code expires on 12/24/2018.

Received mine also 🙂

Received mine also 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

What's up with the Platinum perk day?!  I thought it would be Monday or today but I don't see anything yet. Are they released later in the day?

When do you get Platinum Perks? I've been platinum for 2...

When do you get Platinum Perks? I've been platinum for 2 years and I don't recall ever get any! I'm soooo glad I found y'all! I'm just trying to figure out how to use this. LOL

Re: When do you get Platinum Perks? I've been platinum for 2...

@RaeRae3235 Platinum Perks are usually released on the first Monday of each month, but there are exceptions. For instance, the Merry Monday sale was on the first Monday this month, which pushed Platinum Perk Day back to yesterday, Wednesday. From time to time, one or two Perks are released on other days. I am going to PM you a spreadsheet started last year by @RGbrown & you can look over last year & this year's calendars Smiley Happy


You should be receiving an email on Platinum Perk Days with details about the Perks. Are you signed up for emails? If so & you haven't been receiving them, I would contact CS.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin Because of the Merry Monday sale, it was pushed back to tomorrow. But the only GWP I've come across so far is a 4pc Urban Decay with a $25 UD purchase, so it should be a smaller Perk Day.


Edit: Sorry, meant to say the GWP is with a $25 UD purchase!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin Whoops sorry, meant to say the GWP is with a $25 Urban Decay purchase!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Got a 20% via snail mail today! Woohoo!


I noticed the restrictions include KIEHL'S, so I guess that's a sneak peek of yet another new brand Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Is the 20% mailer a different code than the email this time around like it was for the other one in Oct? @RGbrown. No mailer for me yet Smiley Sad
