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...

 

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

@sephoraaddict918 Crossing my fingers for you girl!

 

I bought a good amount over the holidays and only returned one face wash so I'm guessing my good customer vs bad customer ratio changed hahaha

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hey, wait a sec...this reminds me...there was supposed to be a sample of the Murad Prebiotic Cleanser the in the $70 skincare gwp. Did anyone get that? I got a Murad Hydrodynamic moisturizer instead, which was a bummer...I have that already, but was looking forward to the cleanser 😥

Re: Ulta GWPs

I did get the 4 in 1 multi cleanser in the $70 buy in bag. Sorry to hear that your bag was different 😔

Re: Ulta GWPs

@socalsunflowerUnidentified

Aw man! Well, I'm glad it was in at least some of the bags. Happy you got it! 😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ever since Trendmood did a major post about this new line, I've been wanting to try it. Of course, Ulta didn't send me the freebie promo. I guess Diamonds are expected to blind-buy any and everything.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I got this one too which is a great surprise as it's been a loooong time, and also I really want to try this new line out.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172 I used to get so many and I couldn't have gotten more than 4 in the last 6 months. Too bad for them because they almost always got me in the store. Hoping they have this when I pop in over the weekend. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Good luck @CC3616! My store NEVER has any of the freebies in stock.

Re: Ulta GWPs

That's such a nice surprise @CC3616!! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Wish I got more of the $25 buy in bag! Mine had a full size benefit mascara and a coola firming tanning lotion that wasn’t advertised on top of the L’Oréal tanning lotion. 

 

The clairins in’s night creme is a decent size too! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Looks like Platinum Perk Day will indeed be next Monday, the 14th! Details to come Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

I can't wait!

 

I'm itching to pull the trigger on a couple of things and just get the $70 Skincare Samples even though nothing there interests me but hey it's FrEeeeEeE! But I'd rather wait for Plat Perk Day and get something I want instead. 😁

 

Hoping to see the details soon!! 😶😶😶😘😘😘🤗🤗🤗

Re: Ulta GWPs

Quick Question- if anyone has any insight I'd appreciate you sharing it with me...

I returned an item I had used points to purchase but never received my points back for it.  I emailed customer care but they had no idea what I was asking for or talking about...  I might call unless it is normally out of the question to get points back.  Darn, I wish the gal who did the return just gave me the option to keep it so I could have just passed it on to a friend who might have used it.  

Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts on it thank you so much!  :-)

Re: Ulta GWPs

@sarahshter  I know what you're talking about.  But you should have received your points back.  If I return something online I get my points back, or at least I used to unless they've changed their policies.

 

I had returned something from an order partially paid for...

I had returned something from an order partially paid for with points and the return value was almost nothing. I have to agree, wish they would have let me know before completing the return, I would have gifted or donated the unopened set instead. Best advice I can give is to save your points for items you know you won't need to return, or can even exchange for another shade in the same product.

Re: I had returned something from an order partially paid for...

Over the past year, I've wanted to return a few things that I've bought with points.

But I always decided against it. Ulta does not have a defined and consistent policy about points in regards to returns. I've talked to more than a few CS supervisors and  their responses always differ. That's an issue. No, it's a dumpster fire!! That a major retailer cannot inform a customer of what their refund will be until after the return. 

The day we had the big glitch, the Beauty Blitz Deal was the Becca Lava Gold Highlighter and Volcano Goddess palette for 50% off. I ordered those items and Jaclyn Hill's Morphe brushes, but got a cancellation email. So the next day, I placed another order which included those two products and used 2000 points. Only for the glitch order to actually go through. I called CS twice and explained the situation, which they couldn't resolve. Of course..... So rather than return a $38 highlighter and get back in points what could've been the dollar value of a Happy Meal, I just kept it all. Lesson learned.
