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: Ulta GWPs

It’s 8 am on the east coast and stores open at 9. I received an email saying “you’ll see why” stores are opening early however they haven’t specified anything. I wish they would just say whatever they’re doing because I don’t feel like going in person to see what’s up. I probably will because fomo but I don’t want to!!!! 😂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Apparently many stores still haven't been told about what's happening tomorrow.

Re: Ulta GWPs

well that's nice...

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin Ulta’s sneaky marketing tricks! 😉

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

 I just called and their big surprises that they have shape tape 50% off for diamond and platinum members.   If ulta starts playing the same disappointment games that Sephora does I’m gonna be really pissed. 

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

HUH?! How is Shape Tape being 50% off a surprise?! It has been listed as today's special since the beginning of 21 Days. That is a serious fail on Ulta's part.

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

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

I got two different codes for the $10 off $35 off promo. One in my e-mail and one on the app! I bet I am not the only one either. So you can enjoy the promo twice.

@Armychic84 @yuline @itscarin where are you finding the coupon/code in the app? I keep seeing the $10 off $35 advertised in my email but the code doesn't work. An alternate code option would be super stellar!

Check your messages; that's where mine was!

No luck there this time. 😭 Figures when I actually need to run out and grab something. Thank you for the heads up @RGbrown and thank you for all of the deal updates!

Re: @Armychic84 @yuline @itscarin where are you finding the c...

@alexalicious  You weren’t kidding! I had a coupon in the app with a different code that worked yesterday when I tested it. I went to use it in store today and poof! The extra coupon had disappeared overnight from my app messages. I should have copied it. Guess Ulta caught on to us 😢 I ended up not buying the backup to my Tarte caramel apple shadow. Wasn’t a total wasted trip though. Discovered this new delicious ramen stand in the mall food court! All was not lost 😋

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

YES! Was wishing I had a 2nd code🤪Great catch!!! ❤️

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

@yuline @ArmyChick84 LOL I don't know if I should be thanking you for that catch.  Does anyone have any $35 items they're looking at?

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Oooh, the Mr right Powder brush feel so soft on the skin when putting powder too. and, I was thinking of getting the Full size and travel size of the Damn girl @itscarin 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

According to @notcreative, this month's Skinfatuation GWP (9pc, with $65) will go live next Tuesday, the 10th 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

Yay, all 9! Not keen on the $65, but if they're all minis (no packets), it might be worthwhile...there are few items here I've never sampled before 👍



Re: Ulta GWPs

This sampler looks awesome (if they are minis)! Now to scrape together a $65 purchase - good thing I need volumizer :D. I really hope these aren't foils.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172  I've been thinking about getting bonbon, since now it'd be like 10x pts...

Re: Ulta GWPs

@treestar86  me too!! i have too many fragrances that I couldn't justify buying it in the past, but this is the first time i actually like the fragrance crush + extra 5x + gwp = SOLD 🙂
