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

@trishavt Aww you're welcome Smiley Happy I like the perfume promo, too, but I can't think of any fragrance I need to make that $50 buy-in lol.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk Oh snap, it's a fragrance only purchase.  If it was $50 on anything I'd find something, but I'm in the same boat as you -- I don't need another fragrance.  I got my 5.1 oz bottle of giorgio armani si, and I'm set for awhile.  Also, I picked up a bottle of MAC Velvet Teddy, which I didn't mean to but really like.  And then I have a couple of other odds and ends - YSL mon paris, a Korres peppercorn something or other, an unopened Tory Burch something, and some assorted roller balls.


Out of curiosity, this is for everyone, btw, name 3 fragrances you like and 1 fragrance you wouldn't be caught dead wearing!


Mine would be: Si, Velvet Teddy, and Mon Paris.  Wouldn't be caught dead wearing Chanel No. 5.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Kilian Princess

V&R Flowerbomb

YSL Black Opium


I agree @itscarin on Chanel No. 5. I smelled it at many different stores, thinking I was missing something. Nope, don't like it. I like Chanel No 5 L'Eau, though. And I like Velvet Teddy too. Did you get the full size from MAC direct? I got a sample from them a while ago and really liked it.


Re: Ulta GWPs

@ABC345 I got the full size Velvet Teddy at the cosmetics company outlet for like $15.  I'm dead serious.  It was 75% off retail.  Smiley Very Happy  

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin   I agree with the Chanel No. 5, although I like a few of their newer fragrances.  I always want to have Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume, Annick Goutal's Eau D'Hadrien, and Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess perfume oil roll-on available.

Re: Ulta GWPs


Aerin Rose de Grasse not that I bought it, but have 2 samples of it

Stella McCartney Stella Peony

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy


Horrible smell and the complete opposite of the name of the perfume: Lancome La Vie Est Belle. Ce n'est pas belle, lol!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Buootiful If I'm recalling correctly, I think LVEB smells like Black Opium.  Only it definitely has a more synthetic smell to it.  Do you have thoughts on Black Opium?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin I dont remember either but definitely I liked Black Opium waaay better than lveb. It seemed like 2 distinct smells between those 2. Black Opium is nice but can get annoying after awhile to me. I was alternating Viva La Juicy and BO and enjoyed Viva la juicy a lot more Smiley Happy Than I bought Viva La juicy rollerball and got it as a gwp a few weeks ago too Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

SJP Stash

Raw Spirit Wild Fire

Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille (or Kate Spade Truly Joyful if we're looking solely for Ulta picks 😁)



Nope nope nope to...hmm...most anything floral.🌹Hard to pick just one 😋

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown That would've made sense if I had specified limited to Ulta since we're talking about making the $50 fragrance buy in *at* Ulta.  LOL.  I didn't think it through.  I'm wondering if they'll include candles and other things in fragrance.  I might be in the market for a diffuser for my office.

Re: Ulta GWPs


Definitely do some playing when the gwp comes up...I find fragrance to be a weird category for Ulta, and things that should count wind up not working. I seem to recall playing with one or two once before, but I can't recall off the top of my head how they worked since it's not something I look at often. Good luck! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin What, there's a Velvet Teddy fragrance?? I need to smell that! I agree with you about the Chanel, it gives me a headache.


Three I've been liking recently, in no particular order: YSL Mon Paris, Chloe, Versace Bright Crystal


Nope: Pretty much anything spicy

Re: Ulta GWPs

Skinfatuation gwp is up! Pimprod2004687

(And the KS beauty break is still live for now as well!)



Re: Ulta GWPs

Curious to know what time this showed up. Was it before the scheduled end of the KS beauty break? Or did that beauty break last longer than it was meant to? 


(Asking because I didn't have the nerve to wait and pulled the trigger on my order about half an hour before I thought the KS beauty break was ending.)

This became available at 1 am (eastern time). The beauty...

This became available at 1 am (eastern time). The beauty break was still available around 2 am. I know, because that's when I placed my order. So, yes, the BB lasted longer than advertised. Which, by the way, has not been the norm as of late.

Re: This became available at 1 am (eastern time). The beauty...

Thanks @Ashletta216! Good to know. I do love a good GWP stack 😀

Re: Ulta GWPs

THANK YOU!!!! I had my cart ready just in case the two GWPs overlap, but couldn’t find the skinfatuation gift. Glad I checked this thread.


Thank you lovely ladies for all you do! ❤️

I was excited for this one and kept refreshing until both were there. Excited to get my sparkle and glow on! And so many points!!! Happy dance💖🧚💖

@ShortErica No, you can only shop via one or the other so...

@ShortErica No, you can only shop via one or the other so pick the one with the best offer. Ibotta was less reliable in the past but they seem to have fixed that and copied Ebates model of letting you know what your rebate will be shortly after Ulta processes your order. I'm not sure if Ibotta gives you credit when you redeem rewards points, (haven't tried since they improved, they did not before) but Ebates might.

Re: @ShortErica No, you can only shop via one or the other so...

@alexalicious Here's the terms, ibotta:


Points probably go under 'discounts/coupons' found elsewhere 



Re: @ShortErica No, you can only shop via one or the other so...

@TrysBeautyItems totally, but those are such catch all's and deliberately vague. In actual experience ibotta has worked with lots of different coupons for me, but not when paying with points. Ebates calculated to include points redemption many times, but not every time so I say maybe/might because I'd hate to set someone up for disappointment.
