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:


A list of in store coupons is here:


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


Links are not allowed.  In lieu of links, please read this:



Please 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) /prep-prime-fix?productId=xlsImpprod15921204  Replace the 8 digit product id of the item you want to see with the id of the product you're looking for.


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

Just wanted to share a little bit of positive GWP redemption experience! I jumped on the 6pc Deluxe Sample Mystery Bag with $40 online purchase (w/ Ulta Credit Card) at the end of Feb. The bonus being that you didn't have to own the Ultamate Rewards Credit Card for it to work! The curation in the pic had nothing in what I received, but still loved it and I had picked up 5x bonus points by purchasing the Carolina Herrera Good Girl Parfum. Less than week later, I redeemed the Platinum Perk for the Kate Spade Tote w/ $35 fragrance purchase & grabbed Too Faced Tutti Fruiti palette for half off. For some reason the Clinique Happy Gelato Body Cream ($36) counted as fragrance? Also qualified me for two additional Clinique GWPs which were free w/ $35 Clinique purchase. Score!

~~P.S. When did the option to pick a sample packet with purchase go away? Not that I really ever received any at all when requested, but still wondering!~~

Re: Ulta GWPs

@KemoLove  I really like that tote. I wish there were more totes that didn’t require perfume purchases as I can’t wear most perfumes and my mom can only wear so much (she’s also getting that Herrera set). 


My mystery bag looks like yours. I love that it had FAB lotion as I need all of that I can get in the winter. 


Around October/November the sample at checkout went away.  They started doing a lot of GWPs around the same time. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

The choice of three bags is up! Also, Skinfatuation is back in stock for now if you want to stack 😊 (edit: oops, went back OOS just in the time it took me to post this 🙄)


Play: 2004556

There's a new brand as well





Re: Ulta GWPs

I apologize if this is in the wrong thread, but the search function didn't come back with a general Ulta promo code thread.


But does anyone know if there will be a general 20% off coupon including prestige around this time of the year for Ulta (before the end of the month)?


I have my eye on the Simple Human lighted mirror and would love to stack points + a coupon Smiley Happy

@jominguez it looks like last year and the year before 20...

@jominguez it looks like last year and the year before 20% off went out in mid-April. I think they send them right after the 21 days of Beauty.

@NatureGirlSD New CosRx Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk SO many new goodiessss! I am super excited for the perfume promo. 


Also, I don't think this is said enough but THANK YOU for always sharing the latest promos and deals with us! Smiley Happy

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.)
