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
Looking at the usual Perk Day links:
ulta dot com/featured/platinumnewslettershopall
ulta dot com/featured/platinumnewslettershopalljustadded
All I see are a handful of Too Faced and NYX items (plus a few other random items)... With some Olay, Bliss and Hempz added later on... I wonder if this is all we can look forward to, for tomorrow’s Perk Day? I sure hope not. 😟 Or might Perk Day happen on 3/9 instead?
Re: Ulta GWPs

Re: @treestar86, oh well, everyone gives in sometimes, enjoy...
@Luvstravelthanks, haha. there were some other things I'd been wanting, that I didn't want to go out of stock, so I figured it was a good excuse to order, and I used my points so it's all good. figured I might as well get the benefit ones too, since they had brow contour 50% off so it was a good reason to try it.
Re: Ulta GWPs
I usually try to be non-judgmental but who comes up with these names like Alleyoop or even Flesh cosmetics, another line Ulta carries? It’s kind of cringeworthy and I have a hard time taking them seriously.
Re: Ulta GWPs
@yuline Aw, what’s wrong with Alleyoop as a brand name? I’m genuinely curious.
I’m not fond of the Flesh brand name either, but only because it always makes me think of zombies or flesh-eating bacteria. The name itself kinda makes sense in a beauty industry context. My brain just always goes straight to zombies and I don’t know why.
