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


Yeah, it's a bit frustrating how Ulta can be so inconsistent with it. But, it's pretty easy to figure out which ones work! On the product page, once you select a shade, see if the MUR gwp shows up in the gwp section 😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  ahh, thanks! 😛 I thought the + free gift thingy at the top indicated that, but nope! wrong again. 😕 lol

Re: Ulta GWPs


It does, kinda, but since these also qualify for the sample pack, the gwp symbol shows on all of them. If there was only one gwp, that would be a good indicator. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  yes, I thought that too...probably threw that other sample in just to trick us! lol 😞

Re: Ulta GWPs

Some of the targeted GWP with purchase are good if you have something from the brand you want to pick up, but this (for me so far) is another meh Platinum/Diamond day. Thanks for posting all of this @RGbrown .

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172   same.  plus the ones I'd get/are interested in like dermalogica & clinique are too small to really bother anyway.  but maybe they'll add some more things later?  though they probably wouldn't be that great either. 😕


hopefully something better on weds.!

@RGbrown you said "BM" !!! My inner Beavis and Butthead just zeroed in on that and laughed!!! Haha! sorry think it's getting late for me! In other news..... I'm going to make a couple orders. I dont want to miss out on that Smashbox gift, I like it! but I know they will order some good for the Diamond Deal. I think it will be a discount on some of the FAB things that are already live. not really interested in their brand. but the Coverfx and Smashbox look good!

Re: Ulta GWPs


Agreed. There a lot of gifts, but too many brand-specific ones to make any sort of large stack cost-efficient. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a fabulous glitch and and a nice Diamond gift at this point.


The best thing I've found so far is Bareminerals Complexion counts as both makeup (Clinique gwp) AND skincare (Dermalogica gwp), plus gets the BM brand gift and the sample pack. Not bad for $32...but I just bought a full size and don't need it lol. Finding a worthy stack for something I could actually use would be nice, but unlikely since I already own everything Ulta sells hahahaha

Re: Ulta GWPs

I completely agree with what you said - especially about owning everything lmao! Oh well we'll see if they pull something awesome thru as I do need shampoo. I miss the good ole days when we could get out like gangbusters from all of the glitches m-e-m-o-r-i-e-s 😛

Re: Ulta GWPs

Early access to these items











Ulta GWPs

I'm not sure, but it looks like Ulta may not carry Mario Badescu any longer. 🤔 It's not listed under the Shop by Brands. I still have a few products saved under favorites. I wonder if it is because Sephora started carrying the brand?

Re: Ulta GWPs


I still see it 😊

Edit: I wanted to expound on this a bit is possible for Ulta to carry a brand, and yet it not show up on the brands list somehow. Ulta has carried Raw Spirit for over a year now, but it has never been on the list. You have to just know they carry it and search for it. 🤦 Or if you have something on your favorites list, you can go to a listing that way, then click on the brand name for the full product list...luvstravel, if you still can't see MB on the brands list, you can get to it that way since you said you have some saved. (BTW, I highly recommend Raw Spirit; their fragrances are amazing. While they are all quite different, they all have this warm, woody base that I adore. Ulta doesn't carry them all, but they make 8 total, and I love 7 of them...and would even wear the eighth from time to time)





@RGbrown, thanks. I definitely will look for it.

@RGbrown, thanks for that info. I did search for Mario and it came up. That's the first time that's happened and thanks for explaining that all carried products doesn't show up in the Shop by Brand section. I definitely rely on peoples recommendations, I think you recommended the Capri Blue Reed Diffuser and I love it!

Re: @RGbrown, thanks for that info. I did search for Mario an...


If you decide to check out Raw Spirit, look for their sampler. Ulta had it for a while, and it pops back up from time to time, but it's not available there at the moment. You can get it for $25 from their direct site, OR get the Glossybox Holiday 2018 Limited Edition's in there (with a bunch of other stuff) for $25 as well. I haven't searched for Glossybox promo codes to stack, but there may be one....pretty sure there was a 20% or 30% or something when I ordered a couple of months ago 😁

@RGbrown, that's funny because on my phone Ulta app, it's not listed. I prefer to buy it at Ulta and use my $3.50 coupon!

Re: @RGbrown, that's funny because on my phone Ulta app, it's...


So weird.


Go to your faves list, and click on an MB product. From there, click the brand name in the listing. That should bring up the entire brand for you. Alternately, you should be able to search "Mario" and get similar results. 



Re: Ulta GWPs

Here are July & August's birthday gifts 🙂


July: DS Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara

August: DS Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder

Re: Ulta GWPs

So far the best bday gift for this year is from June, I really like that Lancome gel mask as my "big event" mask (even dethroned my SK2)!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Sodayui I keep forgetting to pick one up & try it!
