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 time for a big bag!










And there's a small V&R gwp for $20 as well








The V&R set seems to be counting as $20 towards the $150 set 👍

And an app exclusive deal


Re: Ulta GWPs

I dont think the V+R and B1G1 is counting towards the $150 anymore  😣

Re: Ulta GWPs

I agree. It wouldn’t work for me an hour ago!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Imightneedthis  😩 . Oh well saved me from spending $60. Fingers crossed I get the V+R one. These clips are so good for my fine hair.


Re: Ulta GWPs

True! At least we saved some $. I have fine hair too, so I may try those clips. Good luck on the V+R!

Re: Ulta GWPs

That good genes 1.0 oz is gotta be.a typo?! Am I the sucker that will spend to get the bag to find out and be disappointment? Yeah, thats probably about right. But oh my, this has some on my favorite skincare and hair product samples listed 😻🤯

Re: Ulta GWPs


Definitely feels like a trap! So sad that they've screwed up so many in such a big way that it's hard to trust the listings anymore 👎


I agree there are some nice things here, quite a few things I like. At first look, I'm passing for now, but I may wind up caving if it sticks around for a few days 😋


The V&R set seems to count as $20 towards it, so that's a bit of a help towards the OOP!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown so true! I don't know what's up with gwps being like a bad prank lately. 👎👎 But I did notice the V&R counted towards the bag and those b2g1 deals do help whittle that $150 down, so for $100 after a $3.50 coupon



I went for it. I'll definitely post what I actually get here in case anyone else is curious. I'm really hoping these are around at least for the next beauty break or two once fall haul starts (fingers crossed).

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ulta has added a ton of new holiday arrivals from Laura Mercier, Tarte, and Smashbox that was featured on the Holiday thread if anyone was looking for those items 😊. Needless to say my $10 off coupon that was burning a hole in my pocket is now gone lol!

I've tried adding pics but for some reason it won't load sorry guys.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172  sweet!  I saw the tarte ones in the email today, the blush and mini eye shadow sets looked nice!!  

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ulta finally added some of the newer Kiko Milano line stuff and it's all sold out. I'm a little confused as I've been checking every day this last week early in the morning to see if they were going to get in the Unexpected Paradise line (especially the single shadows and the lip topper). Did anyone get a chance to pick up either of these items? Thank you in advance.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172 check back because as of 1am most of it is in stock except for single shadows. Hopefully those will be in stock soon too, they look pretty. I loved the rich duo-chrome like jewel toned single shadows they had last year and their lipsticks were really good quality too.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172 @treestar86 

The Unexpected Paradise listings have been up since (Sunday-ish? A few days now, for sure). I remember looking at the eyeshadows the first night, but honestly can't remember if they were in stock or not...I knew I didn't need them so I they just slid right off my mind. Wish I could be of more help! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172  they might have never gotten it in yet?  probably just created the listing. (putting on my @RGbrown hat here, though she may know more about that 😉 ).  I remember seeing here that Ellis Brooklyn perfume was added a few weeks ago, but I didn't actually see any of their items show up until just recently. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Two Beauty Breaks in one day? 🤔


Not listing sizes at all seems to be their new solution to so many "oops, we didn't double check the listing before publishing it" errors lately 🙄




Re: Ulta GWPs

Did I really just get this because of the bag? Yes 😔. I do need more masks so....


Re: Ulta GWPs

Beauty Break is up! pimprod2018856

Sample sizes are curiously left out of the website description. 😂


Screen Shot 2020-09-16 at 10.38.35 AM.png

Gift includes deluxe samples of:
  • Shape Tape Stay Spray
  • Maracuja Glossy Lip Oil
  • Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
  • Sugar Rush Cake Butter   


Re: Ulta GWPs

Skinfatuation is back (??) It's acting wonky in the app, tells me it's no longer available, but working just fine on the mobile site. Hopefully they'll fix it (or maybe pull it) shortly, but for the moment at least, you'll likely need to go to the site to get it!

(ETA: looks like it is working fine in the app now)






Re: Ulta GWPs

Kicking myself as I thought this would last thru this morning's BB. Didn't read the fine print. I really wanted to try that Dermalogica serum 🙂@RGbrown
