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.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I think that was on trendmood's account. But I haven't gotten anything like that either.

Re: Ulta GWPs

YES!!!  Thank you, I thought I was losing my mind. 😂🤷‍♀️😂  I still didn’t get anything in my email.  I wonder if it’s a targeted coupon, or if they would send one if you ask them about it?   Thanks for letting me know

Re: Ulta GWPs

According to @notcreative, there will be a 28pc Beauty Bag with a $70 purchase tomorrow 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk   Ulta is going to try really hard to get us to spend our points before a 20% coupon comes up.  I must stay strong!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Re: Ulta GWPs

I didn't get an email with a Beauty Break.  Does anyone know if there is one today?  Or is it the lipstick sampler below?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@iwantitfree 

It appears to be an all day gwp instead of a beauty break today. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks.  I didn't get an email about the lipstick promo either.  I guess that will make lovers of lippies happy but it's not doing it for me.  Wallet is safe for today I guess.

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp!

Re: Ulta GWPs

There's a new sampler pack today. Pimprod2009120 (but it adds to cart automatically when you buy any qualifying item)

The last mystery gift I got from Ulta was really nice (the one with a $40 credit card purchase). It even had a full sized product! Wondering how good these samplers are that only require a small purchase, any experience?

The sample packs are way different from the mystery bags. So far we've seen 4?5? of the sample packs this year, and they are anywhere from 4-10 packets, usually with a theme. One set was all perfumes, one set was hair stuff, etc, though one set was more of a mixed bag of skincare/makeup/perfume/hair all in one.

I think they're just the little free samples that you used to get automatically.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Did I need to activate the 10x reward to get the points?  I forgot to activate  it before I ordered 2 MAC lipsticks for $ 19. How many points should I have gotten as a Platinum member?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Tarabotti 

Yes, you have to activate the multiplier. Go to your offers and do it now, if you haven't already. Assuming you activate before the order ships, you'll likely get the correct points when they post...I dunno what the exact timeline is for it, but I've activated an offer after placing an order and gotten credit automatically.

 

$19 x 10.25 = 194.75, so 194 or 195 depending on how Ulta rounds it. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Tarabotti @RGbrown only the Mac prep and prime and fix sprays were 10x. Mac lipstick would be 5x. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin 

Nice catch! Thanks for setting me straight 😁

Re: Ulta GWPs

There's a Lancome item that I want.  I am trying to figure out if it would be better to buy today at Ulta or wait until the Sephora sale.  I am Platinum at Ulta and VIB at Sephora.  Any math whiz want to assist me?  Appreciate it!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@iwantitfree 

Assuming you save points and use them in 2000/$125 increments, every x of a multiplier is a 6.25% return on your money spent, making 10x 62.5% back. Spend $100, get 1000 points worth $62.50...and if you wait for a 20% coupon to spend them, they are worth even more! If you are interested in banking rewards and willing to work Ulta's program (and have the cash flow to pay full price oop today), Ulta is a much better deal than 15% off.

I want to thank you for getting back to me quickly.  I will take your advice (and math prowess) and make my purchase today.  I do appreciate your time.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I did get this multiplier!  Trying the Kiehls Calendula cleanser and Made for All body wash for the first time. Nars lipsticks in Damage, Shrinagar, and Instant Crush, stocked up on Shea Moisture Mint body wash for my kids, The Body Shop Ginger shampoo and conditioner (very healing and the conditioner was a great surprise- leaves my hair very soft,) Essence Princess mascara, FAB pads, Cerave cream with salicylic acid and lactic acid for keratosis pilaris, and some ABH products.
