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.

January’s birthday gift





Re: Ulta GWPs

Today is Shape Tape day at Tarte direct and Ulta.  That means that Shape Tape is $22 instead of $27 at both places.

Tarte International Shape Tape Day!

Platinum Perk Day - 1/14


This is all I've come across so far, hope there will be more!






These Real Techniques & EcoTools will be early access:

Here are screen shots from Jan 2018 PP email from 1/1/18 for comparison. I did not include early access item screenshots. FULL SIZE H2 Cloud Cream (OMG!) C'mon Ulta, you've really trained us to whip out those wallets for something special like a free full sized prestige brand and new products from brands we love, please don't disappoint us now. Please let there be something very sweet and juicy on Platinum/Diamond perk day. I was super sad to miss these deals last year, if only I had been able to purchase while in Europe (please fix that Ulta). Sometimes you really do need a break from travel stress and delayed flights with some online retail therapy 😉

@alexalicious  Those were the days!  Hopefully there will be more like it.

Definitely @RGbrown but I feel like I'm pleading with the goddesses of glamour for a really good gift. Seems it always pays to wait for that email to get the Diamond gift as well. 💝🙏💝

Re: Here are screen shots from Jan 2018 PP email from 1/1/18...


Cindy's searches would never find things like that Perricone cream or the Julep perfector, since they are existing products with older product ID's and were never set up as separate freebies. There's still plenty of hope and room for a good Platinum Day...we just won't know for sure until the email at 6am on Monday 😁

Re: Ulta GWPs

Yeah, I hope there's more too. None of that appeals to me. I bought Dermalogica this time last year, which I still have yet to use. The Becca gift is cute. It should've been offered as a gwp with the purchase of the Khloe x Malika palette. Too bad I bought mine already. Maybe the Becca x Chrissy summer collection will be on sale.  

Re: Ulta GWPs

Mmmkay, liking the Becca one, not so much the Dermalogica. 🤔 Ugh, maybe I should just get the Skincare sampler. But what if the other gifts rock?!?!?!


1rst World Problems hurt. 😥

It's been a while since I got one of these! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

It's size is .14 fl oz.


Re: Ulta GWPs

I actually got this one too!! 😂


Maybe I'm finally out of the dreaded Ulta "undesirables" list.


Re: Ulta GWPs

YAY!!! Congrats @magda124 for making it off Ulta's naughty list. Please rub your good luck on me, so I can get back to receiving all the emails I used to get. 

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


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.
