Ulta GWPs

This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only.  Share ulta promos 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.

@Ispend2much6, I couldn't decide, so I ordered both, now can't decide because they are both so pretty.

@Sodayui, thanks. I couldn't decide, so I ordered both, but I swatched them at the department store the other day and I'm leaning towards the rose colored Mirage, just because I have so many goldy highlighters.

Here's a pic of my Ulta order from the other morning on Platinum Perks Day. The Smashbox makeup bag is pretty nice. The bottom samples are the sample pack.

@Luvstravel I got mine today too! I love the Smashbox bag! that's the reason I bought too! it's so cool! I cant wait to overload it. awwww @RGbrown !!! You should have gotten it!!! I have every bag out there (not lying!) but I saw that and saie I need it! I'm not a big fan of their stuff. but I'll suffer for a cute bag! lol! ✌💜😊

@MelBeez, it literally took me 30 minutes to actually pick a Smashbox item to purchase, so I just purchased the Insta Matte. I was trying to justify spending $25 for this order but the Smashbox bag pushed the button.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ahhhhhh, I thought I did good at talking myself out of the Smashbox gwp, but now I regret it. I can't justify another bag at all, but I don't have one like that and I wish I did 😣

@@RGbrown, Sorry you didn't order. The bag was the only reason I placed an order.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Luvstravel Thanks for the pic, I'm glad I went for the makeup bag 🙂

@ohheyitscindyk, 😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

Dang!! You got that quick . Is the lipstick Stepping Out? @Luvstravel 

@Buootiful, yes, It's stepping out.

@Buootiful, yes, It's stepping out.

Re: @Buootiful, yes, It's stepping out.

Hahaha! I guess I wont be getting nude lipstick for a while 🙂 @Luvstravel 

Re: Ulta GWPs

did anyone get the makeup revolution gift?  apparently the strobe or baked highlighters don't qualify (the ones on sale/clearance for 2.99), but I tried adding an eyeshadow palette that was on sale for $10 and it worked (but I didn't want that one).  so I guess the $__.99 stuff doesn't qualify?  which is misleading bc it says $15 on ANY of the items. grrr.

Re: Ulta GWPs


Unfortunately, sometimes some clearance stuff doesn't work for gwps 😣 I am seeing that the Vivid Baked highlighters in Radiant and Golden do qualify ($2.99) if that helps you get to $15 with items you want. I'm not seeing any clearance Strobe ones that work though. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrownthank you.  I tried adding a bunch of different ones but just thought they didn't work cause they were on clearance...that's weird that only some colors work, since they're all the same price!

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 😞
