Let's keep this thread on topic!

 

Ulta points refresher (because yes, it is that complicated):

 

Spoiler

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

Spoiler

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.

Ulta GWPs

Hmmmm... so I was gonna buy the hubs a Clinique Men Moisturizer he likes for his bday this week and was hoping to get a GWP along with the multipliers. I'm so irritated I missed the GWP last Wednesday! 😫 Now I'm debating buying him something else for now and waiting for a better multiplier + GWP later on or cutting my losses and just getting the multipliers tonight but no GWP. Talk about first world problems hahaha.. I feel silly spending $40 and getting no GWP though. 😭 What would you guys do?

@magda124 Totally agree with @phantompenguinx If you have...

@magda124 Totally agree with @phantompenguinx If you have both multipliers that's at least 9x $40 = 360 points which have a value of $22.50 if you spend them in 2000-point increments. I usually spend $125 in points with the 20% off coupon or when there is day loaded with gwps like perks days or save it for one of those mega-spend big gwp bags if it that appeals to you. They are also good on salon services.

glad that helped @magda 124 Just remember the points are...

glad that helped @magda124 Just remember the points are worth substantially less if you spend them in smaller increments. As others have suggested in previous threads you can also opt to spend 1000 points (= $50) to get a smaller gwp or beauty break, you are giving up $12.50 in potential value when you do, but it's still a good option when you like the gwp and don't want to cash in $125 with of points.

@alexalicious Woah, when you put it like that, it's a no-brainer! Thank you.. I knew I could count on you guys to see the light!! πŸ’—πŸ’•

Re: Ulta GWPs

@magda124 

I think it really depends on what you value more. Personally, I would do it if you have both the 5x multiplier and if you have the 5x clinique, because at least I know when I redeem my points it's for items that I use

 

I actually faced a similar dilemma and ended up going in store to buy a clinique item last week because 1. I am absolutely drowning in gwps and 2. I'm supposed to be on a "low buy" and didn't want to bulk up my order to get free shipping with items I didnt need to spend money on right now lol

 

I've also found it's hard to tell how old some gwps are so with my current collection of samples I needed to pass on more gwps...but if you do place your order today, i would wait until later in case there's a beauty break after dark Smiley Wink

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

@phantompenguinx you should post a pic of all your gwp. I’m always curious about what other people have πŸ™‚

@phantompenguinx Yup, I have a plethora of older GWPs hah...

@phantompenguinx Yup, I have a plethora of older GWPs hahaha.. but like you said, points can be spent on stuff I actually need! Also, luckily I don't have to bulk anything up to get shipping and I guess I can at least get those Elemis samplers... but I am waiting a tad to see if there's a BBAD in the horizon. πŸ˜…

Re: Ulta GWPs

Could someone please answer a question about the 5x multiplier that ends today?  Was it targeted?  I called Ulta to get an answer and received two different answers from two different people; one said it was targeted and I didn't get it, one said it was only through their credit card.  I talked to the rudest customer service member today.  She would not let me speak- kept interrupting me and would not stop talking when I tried to speak!

Re: Ulta GWPs

the wording on it says "Platinum & Diamond members get 5x points on all purchases" that sounds like it's a blanket multiplier. I also dont have the cc

Re: Ulta GWPs

@phantompenguinx  That was my argument, but I was told it was targeted.  I did not get the email, or multiplier, but I never get emails.  Thank you!

@Ispend2much6, I received it and I don't have the Ulta credit card.

@Luvstravel   Thank you so much!

RE: @Ispend2much6, I received it and I don't have the Ulta cr...

I received it as well and I also don’t have ulta cc...I think it wasn’t targeted because everyone I know received the multiplier(5x)

Re: RE: @Ispend2much6, I received it and I don't have the Ulta cr...

@mezzotown88   Thanks so much!  I'm going to call one more person, and if I don't get the multiplier I am returning my orders and that's it with Ulta (I'm done with them regardless.)

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp with any $25 lipstick purchase. Also be sure to check out the brand-specific gwps...there are lots of new ones for today only. Happy lipstick shopping! πŸ’„πŸ’‹

@RGbrown I know the feeling. I could not resist the cuteness of this set with the free l'absolu rouge rose lippie to match! They almost got me with that Buxom bag too but I gotta save for perk day.

Did someone say freebies? yes please! Although I believe there was a big lippies bag gwp offered last year, so I'm curious if we'll be seeing one of those with a bigger $$ purchase amount later in the day. edit: maybe it was wishful thinking, the only big lippies bags I saw in my past emails were mid-May and late-Aug. But a girl can still hope!

Re: Did someone say freebies? yes please! Although I believe...

@alexalicious 

All we had for lipstick day last year was a free Ulta matte lip cream, so this little lip set is about on par with that. With all the brand deals, I guess they don't feel the need to incentivize us further lol. 

 

Meanwhile, I told myself I could spend $50 in points today...so far my cart is over $130 🀦 Gotta whittle this down some πŸ˜‚

RE: Ulta GWPs

😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

This upcoming Monday should be a Platinum/Diamond day correct? Trying to decide if I go ahead and buy lippies, or what and see what Diamond day has in store. If it's anything last the majority of the prior ones not much for me.
