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.

Laura Geller fans: TJ Maxx has had a lot of gift sets recently, ranging from 3 to 5 pieces for 7.99 - 12.99 including foundations, primers, highlighters, blushes, lippies, etc... usually full sizes. I've also seen the gilded body mist and gelatos quite a bit. @milliesfriend

ahh, that's good to know, since tjmaxx is right next to ulta!!

Re: If anyone is bummed they missed out on Laura Gellar clear...

Thanks for letting us know! I plan to make a TJ Maxx and Marshall's trip tomorrow, so I will be on the lookout.

Re: If anyone is bummed they missed out on Laura Gellar clear...

I just checked TJMaxx online and they have quite a few Laura Geller products, mostly lip products, in the $4 and $5 range.  I saw the Charming Pink highlighter and a couple of others.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown I got mine today and there wasn't anything exciting--a bunch of wadded up sample cards in a pre-sealed bag.  


  • Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear (about 10 shades in TINY foils - can't do a face w them)
  • Becca Ultimate Coverage Foundation (3 shades, TINY foils on card)
  • Moschino Toy 2 EDP
  • NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (4 shades, in nickel-size blisters)
  • Benefit POREfessional (foil-on-card)
  • Mulger Angel EDT
  • Clinique Take the Day Off (a blister-pack on card 3ml)
  • IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion (foil)

This is BY FAR the worst one I've ever gotten.  You are perhaps not missing anything this time.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Oooh, has Ulta carried Moschino and I never noticed? Ar least the perfumes were interesting and not same old Chloe or La Vie Est Belle @tinobiscuits 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Buootiful That is the only Moschino product Ulta has at the moment and it's online only.  Without this thread, I would have no idea when new brands are available because Ulta is terrible at promoting them.  And I'm too lazy to dig through the New Arrivals every day.  Smiley Very Happy  I was excited when they picked up Tom Ford but then sad again when I realized my one true love Oud Wood was not one of their offerings.  Yet.  


But, yeah, it is nice to see something new.  Thanks for reminding me of the silver lining...even though I am way too sensitive to fragrances to get truly excited about seeing them in my box.  It's always a crap shoot whether I get a migraine or not.  lol

Re: Ulta GWPs


Aaahhhh, yes, very disappointing and I am indeed glad I missed out...I don't do foundation or primer, so that one's mostly lost on me. Praise be! 


Wait, what, no Smashbox? Even the perfume one had Smashbox 😂😂😂

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown Did it?!  Nope, no Smashbox.  But it isn't an Ulta bag without POREfessional.  So I don't know if I'm bitter or comforted by the consistency.  Oh, and from the Empties thread today, I'll tag you if I see that Clarins deal again.  Have a good night!

Re: Ulta GWPs


Every single sample pack this year has had Smashbox, yup, even the perfume and hair ones 😂 Glad to see Ulta mixing it up with porefessional instead this time 😆


I really wish you hadn't alerted me to that purple lip oil. It's all I can think about now, even though I have two other full size ones on hand (and four ulta ones too) 😋

Re: Ulta GWPs

EDIT: Maybe I'm thinking of the 6 piece Sample Mystery Bag with $40 and Credit Card purchase.

@RGbrown   Weren't the surprise sample packs the gwp's that included the deluxe Sweetspot Labs wash and Rituals shower gel?  If so, they were pretty nice.


Re: Ulta GWPs


Nah, those were mystery bags. The sample packs have always been just foils the other times they've been offered this year. It seems to be the replacement outlet for the samples we used to be able to add at checkout...these aren't offered all the time, but they're usually pretty well stuffed when they're available, averaging 6-7 foils or so per pack (I've seen anywhere from four to ten iirc).

RE: Ulta GWPs

30% select Tarte items in store & online (some examples: face tape foundation, matte lip paint, tinted brow gel, pressed powder, flirt eyeshadow palette, double ended lipstick/gloss, loose setting powder, base tape primer, prep moisture reset cream, shape tape setting spray, hamptons contour palette)

Re: RE: Ulta GWPs


While your enthusiasm is appreciated, could you please (pretty please and thank you!) double check the thread before posting a gwp? This was first posted over two hours before your post, literally right below it. Please feel free to post anything you see missing, but back to back repeats really aren't necessary. 😊


(Edit: op was originally a repost of the BB)

RE: Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

It also wasn’t really necessary to report and block me☺️

Re: RE: Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

No clue what you are talking about; I've done neither. (I don't even know what "blocking" is...I haven't seen that or noticed it as a feature)

The Mario vitamin C gwp is counting towards total. you only need $40 total + the Mario sample to get the Tula Beauty Break. -20% coupon on non-prestige means you can get it all for $32!!! productId=xlsImpprod18601123

@RGbrown Figured it out! it's the Mario sample. Ditto on the Tula cleanser. It is a pretty sweet deal with all the extras, but when your cabinets are full.. dang it

Re: @RGbrown Figured it out! it's the Mario sample. Ditto on...

Thanks for figuring it out! I've had $40 in my cart for the last couple of days and this was the PERFECT time to go for it. I love that Tula cleanser and have been curious about the serum 🤔

Re: @RGbrown Figured it out! it's the Mario sample. Ditto on...


Thanks for figuring it out! I'll be ordering all three anyways (ahem, IF I place an order 😂) so I didn't feel like bothering lolol.


I just cleaned out a few cleanser minis that I have tried before and found to be "just ok, maybe even borderline meh", so now I feel like I have room. Never mind the fact that what's left is still a year's worth or so 😆
