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.

New multiplier



Re: Ulta GWPs

Does anyone know when the holiday gift bags with purchase becomes available at Ulta (similar to the Sephora bags)?

Re: Ulta GWPs


Can you be a little more specific? Ulta does a wide variety of gwps, and I can't think of a specific "holiday bag" that you might be referring to? The spreadsheet has a list of all gifts and promos for last year if that helps you find what you're looking for!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  I think last year they had mixed bags of different skincare and hair care samples if you spent over $25 

Re: Ulta GWPs


I know which bags you are referring to when you mention Sephora, because Sephora is relatively stingy with gwps and only does the bags with multiple samples a few times a year. However...Ulta throws out 2 or 3 or 4 different gwps a week, every week, year 'round, so it's hard for me to get a grip on "the holiday one". 😋 I promise I'm not trying to be flippant about it, but I really don't know which specific bag you are referring to. Check out the spreadsheet for deets on what they did last year, or if pictures might help you more, check out usgwp dot com. Every month she does a picture-spread of what gwps Ulta offered the previous year; I'd expect her to post November's in the next few days. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  Good suggestion about checking the website for last year. I couldn’t remember the name but maybe that will jog my memory. 😀

Re: Ulta GWPs

Shoot, I love wine but I don't need a new BaBylissPRO hair styling tool right now. Still, what an unusual GWP!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Dang this would have sold out like hotcakes back in March/April/May when everything was really up in the air especially if you had kids to help teach then their homework. Cheers to the parents out there helping - my poor kid (if I had one) would've failed things like geometry BAD. 😂



Re: Ulta GWPs

Heck @niki172, if you can navigate your way through Ulta’s maze of multipliers, bonus points, birthday points, etc. – you can help with homework! 😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru IDK the only time I ever got in trouble in school was when I got into an argument with my geometry teacher because I wouldn't bring my book to class (teenage antics/angst what fun!). I argued that I would never use geometry in my day to day life outside of high school so what was the point. His argument was that you would use it to hang wall paper or build a deck correctly so you did need to understand geometry. I told him that all you needed was to hire someone to do said projects or get a husband and then you didn't have to mess with any of that hence no need for geometry. Obviously I got detention (I do want to point out that this was not a screaming match just a semi-calm debate) and to this day I've never used geometry in my life so ha!

I was a good kid and I want to point out that I'm not proud of how I acted. I did not like doing homework because I thought it was pointless and we should just take tests hence not bringing my book. Again teenage angst and feeling like you're not being challenged (but I swear there's no way I could do anything except simple math at this point of my life 🤣). That was so long ago I can't remember anything lol!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172 So you think you don’t need geometry huh?


On a serious note, I use geometry almost daily, when I make sandwiches or quesadillas. Whether I use pre-sliced cheese or cut from a chunk, the cheese slices are never the exact shape of the bread. And I don’t like wasting stuff. So I cut them up and re-arrange. It’s half Tetris and half Tangram (ancient Chinese shapes game), I have fun with it! Is my geek flag flying? 😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown You saw this, right? 😉


Screen Shot 2020-10-25 at 7.02.15 AM.png


And also this. Doesn’t include their new Winter Trend Nail Polish 2020 Collection (which is pretty sheer from what I hear), but does include the older ones.

Although somehow I doubt you'll be needing that step-by-step guide... 😁

Re: Ulta GWPs

I was intrigued by the pic with two polishes, and then sad to see they aren't included in the gwp. I'm really curious about what's in the booklet though 😂 There's no Essie on my current wishlist though, so I doubt this'll make it's its way home with me.


I did see the Exuviance! I'm still well stocked on vitamin c from last year's 50% off repackaging blowout, but am debating grabbing a toner or two 🤔

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown That’s lame that they didn’t include those 2 polishes... I also assumed they would be included, based on the photo. Boo.

Re: Ulta GWPs

New multiplier!





ETA: we have a new brand tonight. Welcome Scent-Organix!



Re: Ulta GWPs

See I have a love/hate relationship with this day. For example I don't need the new LORAC pro palette noir, but it looks sooooo pretty and elegant. Then again where am I going where I need to look pretty and elegant? I'm sure the nurses at doctor's appointments will appreciate me getting glammed up LOL!



Re: Ulta GWPs

I bought all 3 of her new larger palettes. They are stunning! 100% recommend. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

THIS is the sale that makes me weak in the knees. So thrilled it's back and really, I have to say Ulta had an AWESOME diamond & platinum 10x appreciation day this year. I know I've been fussy about a couple of gwps and perks days, and there have definitely been disappointments, but all is well again seeing the 10x palette extravaganza. 😻LOVE!!!

Still seeing 10% on rakuten at the time of this post. If your curious, here's what I grabbed, all items all 10x, and omg check out those Nabla cutie Coral swatches! (I'm not even sure the picture does it justice.)



Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp!







Re: Ulta GWPs

Fyi, if you are quick:


Beautybreak, $175 bag, and 19pc hair gift all stack. Use buy more save more trick to drop total. 10% at rakuten.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Nice haul @alexalicious! Now you’ll have 2 of those bags with chain and bow. 😉
