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

Thoughts on whether Ulta will issue a 20% off to compete with Sephora?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@makeitup305 Given that they’ve just sent out mailers with $15 off $75 purchase coupons, somehow I doubt it. But what a lovely idea that would be!

Re: Ulta GWPs

New multiplier





And an app exclusive deal



Re: Ulta GWPs

November's fragrance crush:



Re: Ulta GWPs

It appears that this new $15 off $75 code from the mailer does not include prestige. At least right now, or at least my code – gives me “Excluded from coupons” on every non-eligible item. Slightly disappointing, but not the end of the world.

Re: Ulta GWPs


@civ2ru    Mine includes prestige except Chanel, Dyson, & Beauty Steals/Deals/Black Friday and starts on 11/1.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@quetzalina I have the exact same language printed on the coupon itself, but I tried the code online today and it didn’t seem to apply to prestige in my cart (it did apply to drugstore items though). Perhaps the prestige will kick in 11/1. We’ll see! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru Maybe that will change once it officially starts on Sunday?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk I did think of that... Which is why I’d said “at least right now”. Does your code work on prestige? Mind you, the prestige I’m probably gonna be interested in might be excluded anyway (Black Friday deals, etc.). So it’s not a huge deal.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru I haven't gotten one 😞

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk What?! They better make it up to you! I bet it’s still in the mail... Fingers crossed. 🤞🏻

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru I just got mine! $15 off $75 here.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk Yay!!! It would be majorly unfair if you hadn’t.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I posted here about week ago that my ULTA order had shipped but there had not been any tracking updates. Yesterday marked the 8 business day since shipment so I contacted ULTA. I didn’t ask for a refund; just that my items be shipped again. 


So they shipped what was in-stock with the exception of two of the GWPs (including the $175 buy-in bag). Instead they sent me a $75 gift card. 

To my surprise, the original order showed up TODAY. Different tracking number and in a banged up box. (it was a large order)


What should I do? The replacement order shipped out this morning too!

Re: Ulta GWPs

If I were you, I will contact CS and let them know what happened and let them decide since you did receive the order. For me it’s the honest thing to do. Chances are they most probably will let you keep everything but best if you let the company decide! 

Re: Ulta GWPs


There's not much you can do, really, short of taking the replacement order into a store, trying to explain the issue and dropping off the extras. CS likely can't cancel the replacement anymore, get a bonus. Give them as gifts or keep them as backups!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ArmyChick84 If it were me, I’d contact CS again. You will probably get to keep all of your goodies and the gift card for the inconvenience (it’s not like they can un-issue the gift card or un-ship the replacement), but you might feel better. If you like, you could offer to send back the duplicates, if provided a prepaid return label. Again, this is what I’d do. Oh, and congrats! 😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

Saw on reddit that targeted coupons for 20% off one haircare item went out, through this Saturday, the 31st. Excludes Dyson.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I had a hair purchase I had been sitting on for a bit, so I jumped on the hair sampler this past weekend. I was excited for three new dry shampoos (none of which I'd ever tried before...that's getting harder to say these days lol), but of course that's what was missing from my set 😣


For the 19pc set, I received 18 items, and was missing three (with two subs)



I am missing the Joico and OGX dry shampoos, and the AG shampoo packet. I received the Sebastian and CHI items instead (on the left in my pic below). Oh, and as a bonus, the Sexy Hair Love Oil leaked, so everything is coated with an oily film 🙄



I might have held off a bit longer if it weren't for this gwp, and I kinda wish I had now...a day or two later, Ulta loaded a holiday set of what I bought that was a slightly better value to begin with. 🤨

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown That stinks. Especially the leaking oil part. Might be worth a call to cs. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown Oh don’t you hate it when you pull the trigger, and then something better drops? Plus the missing items, plus the leak. Sorry... Not the Ulta experience we deserve. They’ll get it right the next round, I’m sure! Else, now there is that 180-day return window.


Also, did you see this latest holiday hair set from Target? I saw it in-store, comes in a nice sturdy waterproof-looking bag. Has 3 dry shampoos in it. It is $14.99 now, but I bet it’ll come down around BF/CM. Or they’ll have 20-25% off beauty Circle/Cartwheel offer again. A small consolation prize, perhaps? 😉
