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.

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

I called another store in a different state and they confirmed nothing special in store. Ulta is lucky I didn’t get out of bed for this. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

The rumor on Reddit for Ulta's reason for opening early on Sat. and Sun. is that the past 21DOB deals are coming back for two days.  Ulta didn't sell as many of the items as they allowed for because Sephora price-matched them.  I wonder if they will be marked down even more....wouldn't that be something!

Someone else said it was posted on their Ulta employee work website that there will be addition Beauty Steals and Hot Buys that have not been advertised.

Another employee got added to the schedule for Sunday just to do online pickups.

Re: Ulta GWPs

If they are doing a redux of the 21 Days stuff, it's not being reflected online, so that wouldn't account for any projected increase in store pickups. I don't see anything at all new added to the sale stuff other than today's scheduled deals. 🤔


Fall Haul starts Sunday, which is usually drugstore stuff...I could see a surge in BOPIS orders for folks that want to avoid shipping on small orders, so extra staffing for the pickup desk on Sunday kinda makes sense. 


I am dying of curiosity to know what this extra hour is all about. 😋

Re: Ulta GWPs

You are a great super sleuth 🕵️‍♀️ @Ispend2much6! Thank you! 😘

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Sunnysmom   Haha- I just hope the info is correct!!!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ha yup but it’s pretty detailed so bet it is @Ispend2much6 ! 

Ulta GWPs

Recent GWPs: Skinfatuation (these are tiny! I included a foil packet for comparison), Shiseido beauty break (itsy bitsy, see foil packet compared), 1st skincare gwp which contains a foil packet👎 and sub, and 2nd set from same day which is the best one out of the lot and contains a full size ROC eye cream, but a bunch of subs. I have to say overall these gwps aren't what they used to be. I'm just not impressed.

Re: Ulta GWPs

If anyone needs an idea to use the $5 off of $10 coupon code, Eos's Smooth Stick Lip Balms are on sale for $2.39 each.  I added an IT brush for $8 to an order for five lip balms and it came to $15.85 free shipping, and the Exfolikate gwp is still available.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Cue dramatic background music... 🎶



Any guesses? 🤔

Would be interesting if they were launching a whole bunch...

Would be interesting if they were launching a whole bunch of holiday collections, similar to what Sephora does for VIb/Rouge. Ulta always seems weeks behind Sephora with their holiday sets. I'm dying to see if they will get the TF bronzed and kissed set with the glittery gingerbread bag that sold out day 1 on Sephora. Did not see anything about that set being exclusive.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown They opened early last weekend as well for 21 Days, so I'm thinking tomorrow is for that. And then the Fall Haul Event is supposed to start Sunday, so perhaps they're opening early for that? "You'll see why" lol, sounds ominous.

Re: Ulta GWPs


Ah, I totally missed that they opened early last weekend too. Mornings aren't my thing anyways, so I'd never be jumping at the gun to get up early 😂


Ominous...super surprise "going out of business" sale? 😆😆😆

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown HAHAHAHAHA "Everything must go!"

Re: Ulta GWPs


I would 100% get up early for that. Heck, I'd go sleep in their parking lot tonight

Re: Ulta GWPs

In-store coupon 



Re: Ulta GWPs

Of course I buy my stuff yesterday for the 5x points and use the $5 off of $10 coupon and they don't have the gwp for the item and now they have a different gwp. Wah!


At least with the 5x points I should have above 750 points vs. now just over 500 so $30 for me! 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ShortErica   $30 is great!  It's a great time to have points to use since the new holiday items are trickling in.

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp:
