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

The Skinfatuation gwp is up!

Item number 2584972




Re: Ulta GWPs

Wow for quick my $160 bag today! All in all, I have to say I'm pleased. It's missing two items from the list, but we all know Ulta rarely gets it right, and the two that are missing? I didn't care about them anyways. I got the items I wanted, and since that almost never happens, I'm perfectly content with what I did get!






Missing items:

KVD eyeliner (I don't wear black liquid liners anyways)

St Tropez Purity Face Tan stuff (I don't use self tanner either)


I only got one sub, but it's a fantastic item that I'm happy to have: this works deep sleep pillow spray 💕

Re: Ulta GWPs

Missing bondi beach and micellar water in mine. Eh. Meh. 

Would have been nice to get a couple of subs, but not today. Ulta has been bad about that this year.


The Buxom plumpshot, Nars bronzer, and Mr. big mascara are always nice to have. Super mini Mac fixed plus always tickles me.


Haircare and face cleanser heavy gwp, but a couple of items I haven't seen in a gwp bag: mega babe thigh rescue and kopari body mask.


Bag feels cheap like shower curtain material, but it's thick and sturdy and should hold your sunscreens and aloe perfectly if you want to toss it in your beach bag.


Re: Ulta GWPs


The MAC threw me for a loop...I'd never seen one that size before and hadn't paid attention to the size in the listing. It's better than the perfume sample size ones they gave out last year or the year before though!


I'm kinda appalled at the 5ml cleanser from P&L...I expect that size from a sample serum, but for a cleanser? It may as well be a packet...that's 2 or 3 uses. I was excited to try it, but I'm borderline annoyed with how tiny it is now.


Shower curtain, yes! I was trying to think of what it reminded me of, and all I could come up with was windbreaker, but that wasn't quite right 😋 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown @alexalicious  exactly...these tinier and tinier samples really annoy me...I try to avoid them at all costs lol.  (which is funny cuz I usually like small things, lol...and love collecting perfume mini's.)  but yeah, for certain things, its just the 0.5 oz BODY wash sample in the recent kopari BB.  I just laughed and was like ugh, WHAT!?!? no thanks...I have a face wash from them thats like half the size...ended up on the floor buried somewhere, after using it and trying to take off the tiny cap in the shower without it flying somewhere or going down the  its also annoying that its usually the higher priced companies that are so stingy w/their samples. 😒

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown yes those fix+ samples were indeed Barbie sized. 

Hilarious that Ulta would send barbie makeup. I think that should've won some sort of ridiculous award. Lmfao

Who are those for?! Fairy folk?


I don't understand, why make plastic waste if the samples are going to be so small. 



Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  SO amazed your order got to you so quickly! I live near Ulta’s HQ, and my bag is shipping from California so it’ll be awhile…I’m anxiously awaiting to see if my GWP bags are complete!

Re: Ulta GWPs


That's bag shipped to me from the IL warehouse 😅 I love it when I get stuff from that one as it generally comes in two days, but Ulta seems to ship most of my stuff from TX, which can take anywhere from 3 days to a week. I hate it when I have something come from CA, as that always takes at least a week to get here.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Snaps to the super fast shipping!


That's almost a heroic effort, especially since beauty products plus the 90+ degrees that a lot of folks are feeling don't mix well. I sympathize with the parcel sorters and delivery drivers.


This mega bag was probably the least exciting I've ever seen advertised, but I'm sure it'll be great for others who don't accumulate gwps. I wasn't at all made about a few of the d&p perks from Monday so I suppose it's icing.


Totally agree you got a bomb sub @RGbrown 

Re: Ulta GWPs


I agree it isn't one of the better bags Ulta has put out, but it had just enough to draw me in...I'd have to look back, but I think I've skipped maybe all of the big ones this year? So it felt like the time to jump...that Redken dry shampoo is HG status for me, and I have been dying to check out the scent of Pirette ever since it showed up, and even with quite a few things here that didn't interest me, I found myself putting more stuff than I usually keep into my bathroom stashes instead of just dropping them in the "pass these along to someone else" boxes in my kitchen 😅

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  ooh, I've been interested in pirette also (I love coconut). do let us know how it is!


I like the bag also, its cute and kitschy/old-fashioned looking. 😊🤗

Re: Ulta GWPs


I have to say, I am enchanted with Pirette so far 💕


If you are looking for a typical sweet coconut, this isn't it. It's drier, not terribly sweet, with a touch of Hawaiian Tropic. Slightly warm and spicy. Very beachy without being overtly tropical or fruity. Now that I know I like it, I will be ordering the dry shampoo at some point (likely whenever we get a 20%)!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  thanks for sharing. 🤗  I'd take about any kind of coconut, lol. 😂  hopefully they come out w/a smaller one, or a gift set for the holidays so I can try it.  I've been using the coconut lip balm from the sephora favorites set, which is pretty waxy, so I thought it'd smell like  I'm also intrigued by the new 'dirty coconut' perfume by heretic, hopefully I can get a sample, as its pretty pricy.


Idk if youve tried 'arizona bloom' by floral street, but I picked up the travel size, bc of the coconut notes, and its also dry and a bit musky/smoky (not good at describing perfumes, lol), w/just a hint of suntan-y smell.  not very strong, but sounds like it might be similar to pirette? 🤔

Re: Ulta GWPs


I'll have to check both of those out at some point, thanks!

Re: Ulta GWPs

New Beauty Break MAC gift with $50 purchase. Includes new mascara. 


Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp: choice of 2 men's samplers at $50












There's a new Surprise Sampler as well, free with any qualifying item (just under 1200 this time)



Re: Ulta GWPs

This one always means it's all packets right? No deluxe samples?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@jojo83 my experience lately has been foils/packets, except in the case of perfumes it's the tiny vials in a holder card.

The few I've received this year have also been themed, all skincare, all haircare, all perfume.

I'm kinda wondering if this one might be suncare related but it's a crapshoot. 

I will say the ones I've gotten recently have been chock full of packets, like 6 or more and I was pleasantly surprised to get some nice brands.
