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 just double checked, @civ2ru and it looks like they substituted the vitamin C moisturizer for the “vital moisturizing cream.” It’s the same value, and ’ll attach a clear photo. I’ll let you know what I think of it!!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Danzie89 That one actually looks even better! Tons of great reviews... Happy for you.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hey @civ2ru, I tried the Trilogy moisturizer last night and it’s really nice! It’s a rich, supple product that’s moderately scented, although it smells natural and grassy/ herbaceous. It wasn’t greasy at all and my skin looked hydrated this morning. I’m going to continue to use it nightly—I think it’s a bit too thick for me to use in the morning, but I’m enjoying it so far, especially in the winter!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you, @civ2ruN! 😊 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Check your emails, just got this multiplier in mine. Sweet! Anybody else?

 

Edit: this doesn’t show up in my account under “Bonus Offers”, but I’m fairly certain it’s active because of the email.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I got this via email as well, and it wasn't on my list before. I clicked the email and got "congrats, you've activated it", but I wasn't signed in, so I signed in and clicked the email link again just in case. Tried an Exuviance item, but didn't get the points. Knowing that multipliers can take a few minutes to kick in, I waited five or so and checked again, and lo and behold, it's working now, and it's on my list. 

 

I had my sister check her account, and she had the multiplier as normal on her list...she didn't have to click through the email first to see it. 

 

I hope "you have to activate it through the email" doesn't become the new normal. 

I noticed this as well and feel it is supremely irritatin...

I noticed this as well and feel it is supremely irritating if they intend it to make it active only via email. The app got a facelift a day or so ago, so I'm hoping it's just a bug they are working out.

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

@quetzalina I for to check Ulta today so I missed this one

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ooh, my 1st ABH BB. Couldn't resist this one with the brush. I hope all these are made in Korea, minus the brush of course.. Finally used my Tarte coupon code  for $10 off $50 Smiley Happy

Just received the promo e-mail, but the link still sends you to the 4 piece gift and not the 5 🤨🤔 Soooo, which one are we supposed to be getting?

Just received my latest order in the mail. Good news, eve...

Just received my latest order in the mail. Good news, everybody! The Anastasia Beverly Hills GWP is indeed 5 pieces and includes the bag 🙌😁

Re: Just received the promo e-mail, but the link still sends...

@youvebeenktfod I got the same email. My gut says 4-piece. But snap a screenshot of the email, just in case. Or... don’t. 😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

Received my order with $125 bag and Philosophy GWP. Haven’t looked at the bag yet – that will take awhile to do a full analysis on, so I’m brewing some chai. But the Philosophy 8pc has one sub that is rather disappointing... Ultimate Miracle Worker fix is a foil packet instead of the trial size tube. Not cool. 6FF8E708-2A09-4463-A161-F6060D005EB1.jpeg

Re: Ulta GWPs

That sucks both gwp had subs in them Smiley Sad @civ2ru Mine didnt have the OPI nail item and was 32 pcs instead of 34. What's the point if they dont have a full size in there? The lipstick was also the orange one instead of the red one. 

 

I returned the 34 pc gwp and my whole order. They used to be really accurate last year. Ulta is slipping again with lost pkgs and inaccurate gwp's. Oh well, saves me money.

oh, that would be disappointing with no fs opi😳😢@Buooti...

oh, that would be disappointing with no fs opi😳😢@Buootiful Mine had some subs but not enough for me to return (also had a vday gift for the hubs )

Re: Ulta GWPs

$125 had some disappointing subs/downsizes also... Pretty close to the subs that @RGbrown got – plus one additional trial size (CeraVe) swapped for a foil packet.

So... 1 trial size swapped for 1 packet in one GWP; 5 travel/mini sizes swapped for 1 travel size and 5 foil packets in the other GWP. In addition to Ulta Facial Wipes being a 5-count (not a 25- as stated in the description) and Bb Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil being a 0.34 oz (not a 1 oz). This doesn’t sit so great with me. We’ll see if anything can be done... 
Probably nothing. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

 I'm kind of surprised at how upset people sound honestly. If you paid $125, I get it, but to get that bag for 1/2 the buy-in requirement and then complain (in hopes of them giving you a gift card I imagine) to cs seems wrong to me. I'm sincerely not trying to be mean, but, come on people!

 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Christinaco I’m not upset or complaining. Just sharing information and my experience regarding an Ulta GWP with peer community. Which is what I believe this thread is about.

Re: Ulta GWPs

It did appear that you were complaining, on here and to cs. If i am wrong in my perception, I apologize. Here's the thing about complaining to cs, they are super nice, unless they feel like youre abusing the system, which they will if you complain about bags that you didnt qualify to get. Just be careful about what you write to cs about, they keep track, and will stop being as helpful. I save my complaints for things I paid for, not free extras.

I'd heart this sentence a thousand times if I could. I understand everyone has a different idea of what's "contact CS about it"-worthy, but this is my line in the sand as well. The sad fact is that bags are rarely exactly as advertised, but I get soooo many other perks from Ulta that building a negative CS contact history over freebies isn't really something I'm interested in.
