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

Photo from this morning’s email, this looks more like it.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Yup, similar to what's on the front page of both the app and site; it's just the product page that Ulta can't bother getting right 😛

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown I've never been able to get this "Pimprod" thing to work, for some reason, and its not on the gwp page...could someone send me the link plz?? 😥😫


EDIT: ahh, it shows up now... 😌 I wonder if there will still be a BB today... 🤔

Re: Ulta GWPs

@treestar86 I usually can't get the pimprod to work, either.  😞

Re: Ulta GWPs


Are you using the pimprod instructions on the spreadsheet? If so, lemme know where you're getting hung up, and I can assist (or edit the instructions if something isn't as clear as I thought it was).


It can take 20-25 minutes for new gwps to show up on the gwp page; before then, search "gift purchase" and sort by new to find the stuff that showed up at midnight.


All day gwps generally take the place of a Beauty Break. Never say never, but I wouldn't hold my breath either.

Re: Ulta GWPs

A small glitch reported on Reddit... Hope it helps someone.



Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks.. that glitch pushed my hand.


Don't love the Hempz but my mom will like it and don't wanna risk waiting for afternoon perk- don't want my stuff going oos for overthinking yet again! 🤡

Re: Ulta GWPs

@magda124 Nice stacking!  I kind of overlooked the biolage gift when I put my order together, but god only knows I don't need more samples, especially when I don't have color treated hair.  Could've been a nice gift for someone though.  Oh well.  Maybe it and the YSL duo will still be around for the afternoon perk.  😈 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin I overlooked that Biolage GWP too and was kicking myself initially, until I realized that it would go straight to the “gifting” stash. Gotta keep it under control (or make an effort, at least).

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hahaha.. 😈


What also made me pull the trigger is that my IGK Offline is running low and the hair mask in the discovery kit is full size @ 3.4 oz. 😁


Or so it says! 🧐

Re: Ulta GWPs

@magda124 saw that too, looks like a 3.4oz hair mask. Here's hoping!

My hair certainly sucks up all the moisture I can feed it lately, dang cold weather. I went the Briogeo route for my order, scooped up more hair masks in those other gwps. Hair masks to the rescue!





Re: Ulta GWPs

Update on my ulta request: got a $30 GC today after I called up.  I explained I had spoken to them on Wednesday, never got a follow up, and was following up today.  They had apparently created the GC, but not sent it, so they sent it to me just now.  I'm very happy with that.  


Now I'm just plotting my next move.  I like that YSL purse spray duo they have, but was kind of hoping for a better diamond perk than the hempz body lotion.  My husband goes through that stuff like it's water so it will get used, it's just not terribly exciting for me.  Haha.  I'm currently using Amazon for my hempz triple moisture supply where I get it for like $12/bottle.  IDK why there's such a wild variation in Hempz pricing but I'm definitely not paying $28 for it at ulta when I know it can be got for like $10-12 anywhere else.  I might just pull the trigger on the sale set now thought because I expect that's going to sell out.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'm so glad to hear your efforts paid off in the end. @itscarin thank you for sharing and for the update.

It's really nice to hear they left you a kind note too.


I'd say you got a better deal afterall: a two for one on the purse spray plus the hempz for hubby.

Idk what it is about hempz, but my boo loves it and runs through it so fast too.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin Glad you got your due compensation for the missing purse spray! As for HempZ, you know that they are all on sale for $9.99 at Kohl’s right now?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru Yes, I did see that.  Thanks for mentioning it!  I just have it on auto ship now.  It helps me make my monthly 5 item threshold for the 15%-20% discount from amazon.  


I ended up buying the perfume spray duos because I thought it's really only fitting I take that GC and apply it to another purse spray.  😄  They actually left a really nice note with the GC: So sorry your free gift was missing from your recent order! We want to make it up to you. Here is a gift card that you can spend online or in store - our treat. Come back and see us again soon!


And here's what I did:

LOL I kind of feel like a jerk for making this order but  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ they'll make it back on me later.  

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin I like that Mon Paris scent. Confident, springtimey. Haven’t tried the other one. As for Ulta making it back on you, how about this very thread? 😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru I have the mon paris in a big bottle... somewhere.  I haven't tried the "extreme" version.  I was on the fence about this because I really don't need it but I know I like it and so it is a really good value.  I'll probably end up gifting this to my mom for a mother's day/bday gift.

Re: Ulta GWPs

So this is odd. I got a “1,000 bonus points for A TOTAL OF $200 spend" offer, and I naturally wondered if the spend can be accumulated in multiple transactions – or if I have to drop $200 in a single transaction (ain’t gonna happen Ulta). According to the answer I just got from CS on FB, it has to be a single transaction. What?😖

@itscarin @RGbrown @ohheyitscindyk 


Edit: I pressed them on it, and they corrected themselves! ☺️


Question in that regard: if one were to make a return for a past purchase during 21 Days, would it count against that accumulated spend? I thought it would, but here is what CS said:



So sounds like only new purchases between 3/14 and 4/3 are considered for the bonus, no?

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you for this! There were a couple of things I was debating about getting and this would def help my decision and keep track!  😁

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks for checking @civ2ru! Now I’m wondering about using points - would they count towards the $200 spend?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@savvy4 I'm 99.9% sure they wouldn’t. Can't earn points by spending points anymore... 😥
