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.

Thanks @RGbrown! I almost exclusively use the app, but I'll get on a laptop and check out the spreadsheet.

@bookwyrmm The Google spreadsheet works on mobile, through the web or the Google sheets app.

Re: Ulta GWPs

It adds to cart automatically, but the pimprod is 2004036 if you wanna look it up for any reason 😊

Also, the Kiehl's Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil is up. 😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

With all these bonus points offers, I thought I can easily ger 10x points for Lancome and other brands mentioned. I guess I’m wrong. 


Loaded $100 lancome into my cart and only get 825 points.


How does the math work?



Re: Ulta GWPs

Forgot to mention, I’m platinum. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RIslander You have to deduct the base points from each of the multiplier since it is only counts once.  So for your purchase it would be 1.25 base for platinum + 1 for birthday + 4 for Lancome + 2 for all purchase = 8.25 total multiplier giving you the 825 on the $100.  Not quite 10 but still pretty sweet :-)

Re: Ulta GWPs

@minivan100 @RIslander And if you multiply the points by the point-to-dollar value (assuming you cash out every 2000 points):  

825 * $0.063 = $51.975


Then divide by total purchase:

$51.975/$100 = 0.51975 ~ 0.52

-> Almost 52% return? (Someone check my math please)

Re: Ulta GWPs


The one basic hallmark I keep in my head is 8x = 50% back (assuming points are spent at 2000/$125). Your math is good Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown Thanks for checking Smiley Very Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

Something I'm not sure, but you Ulta experts would know: is there free shipping during the 21 days? Like if you buy a hot buy or something similar? TIA. Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs


There should be free shipping for Platinum/Diamond folks, no minimum, but only for the daily deals. Anything else is subject to the normal shipping minimum.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrownThank you, that's what I was looking for! Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs


Yes, free shipping usually comes with the items from the sale.

Re: Ulta GWPs

You guys know how much I love the Julep oil, and it is now 50% off! I hope it doesn't mean they are going to discontinue it...rh.jpg

Re: Ulta GWPs

Just a heads up- visited my local Ulta and an employee told me when they have an extended sale (this one is marked through June) it usually means they are getting rid of the brand. @ABC345 @gonerogue @Ispend2much6 

Re: Ulta GWPs
