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.

Thanks for the heads up! $150? Does Ulta think they are SpaceNK or something? They sure don't have SpaceNK brands in that gift bag... Oh well, money saved.

Re: Ulta GWPs

$150 for this is pretty ridiculous. Sad to see Ulta getting greedy with higher buy-ins, less freebies, and no samples with purchase. It seems like too many beauty companies end up going in the direction of seeing how much they can push their customers by being cheap. On the upside, my bank account is happier.

Re: Ulta GWPs

wow, $150!? I don't think it's worth it. 😞  I was just going through my summer bag, the blue one w/palm tree - I thought that one was great, and I think it was only $80?  there were some nice velvety holiday bags last year (wow, doesn't seem like that long ago, lol) that were around $60-75 I think.  so I hope they will have more of those, especially around the holidays, rather than these 2x the price ones.

Re: Ulta GWPs


The over $100 bags happen 5 times a year (Feb, May, Jun, Sept, Nov). There will be plenty of lower buy-in gwps between now and Xmas 😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

yay, good to know! 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Wow this is one of the few bags I think I'm going to skip. I'm trying really hard not to just buy something in order to get a GWP unless 80% of so of the bag interests me, and there's only like 5 items in here that I would like to try. Maybe if the buy-in was lower I'd go for it, but it's a pass. Thanks so much for posting @RGbrown  - all of your hard work is greatly appreciated :).

Re: Ulta GWPs


I feel exactly the same; there are a couple of items I love in here, and a few I'd like to try, but there's just not $150 worth of interest for me here. 😥

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  thank you for being so speedy with the url’s. Your work is greatly appreciated ❤️😘

Yes it's greatly appreciated @RGbrown 😘😘

Yes it's greatly appreciated @RGbrown 😘😘

Re: Ulta GWPs


Aw shucks, it's nothing. May as well help my Sephora friends get Ulta deals lololol 😛

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  I told myself I didn’t need to be Rouge and Diamond this year but I’m only $180 away from reaching Diamond thanks to this thread. I’m not mad at it since I mostly just use Ulta for repurchases and cash in my points during the holidays for free holiday sets 💁🏼‍♀️

Re: Ulta GWPs


I was kinda appalled when Diamond premiered and I saw the buy-in was $1200. But in reality, it's not that hard to reach if Ulta carries several of your everyday items. And the points just can't be beat...I love a good points haul too 😍

Ulta GWPs

Looks like those Funko Pop Disney Villains palettes release date keeps getting pushed back. It was supposed to release 9/15, then 9/22 and now it's showing 10/6. At least one YouTube video is up showing it in store, so some locations may have it on display and available. They are a little bigger than hand-sized and look cute, however a mirror was detached in the Ursula palette tester so I'm wondering if it's a QA issue delaying online release. I'm super curious for swatches if anyone happens to come across these in their store.

I bought the whole line, it was available in store near my place. It only arrived two days ago. The packaging is cute.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Okay, I'm still trying to learn the Ulta strategy. Anyway, I noticed 350 w/ $40 (thru 9/28) on Sunday. Was this a targeted email or does it apply to anyone? Thanks!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Lucky! @ShortErica  I only get the lowest possible coupons which was the $5 off 10 and the 200 pts for Dam n mascara. Enjoy! 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Buootiful I didn't get the bonus point one. That's why I was asking if it was targeted since I saw it in the spreadsheet. I was hoping I just missed it in my email but it looks like they didn't target me. My first comment wasn't very clear.


You're doing better than me. I only got the $5 off of $10 and not the too faced offer. Not that I planned on buying mascara. Only one offer for me. 🤷

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ShortErica Targeted.  Some people received points offers, like yours, and some people received a coupon, in either $5 off $10 or $10 off $35 denominations.


I believe everyone received the bonus points for buying a certain type of too faced mascara, and everyone got 5x on their "selfie stars" selection.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks @itscarin! I got a $5 off of $10.


I also received the 5x points but not the bonus points for buying too faced mascara.

Re: Ulta GWPs

New multiplier, and a new bonus points offer!
