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

Three bags here as well. Significant subs, no full size tanning item at all. I don't self-tan, I wasn't particularly attached to any single item, and frankly, I'm missing 5 foils, most of which got upgraded in the subs, so I'm not terribly upset. Still not a winner as far as accuracy goes though (aka normal for Ulta 😐).


Two bags had 27 items; the third was missing the Nudestix balm. Outside of the missing item, all three bags were nearly identical (one had a Tula moisturizer as a sub while the other two had the Tula cleanser).



Here's what I got that was actually in the listing, as laid out against the item pic (and whoops, I accidentally cut off The Route samples in the bottom right!).



Subs I received 

Re: Ulta GWPs

For comparison these were the as described items in our bags.

You got a couple of nice upgrades and weren't missing much with those foils @RGbrown although the party peel sounds intriguing. But had you wanted the tanner, that would have been a sham deal.

I don't think it's right to advertise full sizes then omit them Ulta. They've done that to me twice this year.

Organized by category: hair, fragrance, bath/body, makeup, heavy on the skincare.



I'm not a self-tanner girl either, busy living my best goth life. But my hubby eagerly snapped the tanners up. I'm afraid of what he might get up to.

I hope he's not going to ruin something leather.😂

Re: Ulta GWPs


I tried to get into self tanner a couple of years ago, and just didn't enjoy it. My arms will tan pretty easily, and I wear a lot of tank tops in the summer, but I mostly wear pants and my legs are scary white when I do put on shorts 🤭 Thought I'd try tanning just my legs to at least split some of the difference between my top and bottom halves, but never got the hang of it, and kept forgetting to do any maintenance or touch-up work if I found spots that were fading or splotchy. 


I think I'm offended by the PTR gel mask coming in a foil. I remember 1oz tubes being given out, and then those being cut down to half-ounce tubes, but now apparently they've moved on to practically nothing. I'm certainly not sad I missed out on those 🙄

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown And they also threw in free Converse shoes??? Niiice!!! 😉😂

Re: Ulta GWPs


That's my swatch stick storage box! 🤭




Re: Ulta GWPs

Pretty! If you ever retire those @RGbrown I can see those becoming part of a beautiful upcycled art piece.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Someone on Reddit already got their mailer for 6/27 through 7/17. Nothing terribly exciting in there, but here is the upcoming Fragrance Crush:



And here is Skinfatuation:



Re: Ulta GWPs

 New gwp!

Item number 2585832




Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp

Item number 2585039


There is no description of the contents. Oddly, this item number was up for a few days in the last week or two as an "11pc mystery sampler", but it never actually worked. It seems Ulta gave it a new pic, so maybe that's at least a rough guess as to what you'll get, but I wouldn't be surprised to see these vary in contents once they start arriving.



Re: Ulta GWPs


Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp

Item number 2540394 (but it adds to cart automatically)




Re: Ulta GWPs

Has anyone had issues getting logged in to their Ulta account? I remember a few months ago they said there would be some changes but despite my best efforts it’s been impossible to access my account even after reaching out to CS. I keep getting a “Uh Oh something went wrong!” message, have asked them to help/reset, and still nothing. They’ve sent links that expire immediately, like back to back to back, and I’m just stuck. I know it’s still active and working because I still get emails and such, and shopping in store isn’t an issue. If any one else has experienced this and managed to get it fixed, please help!! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I almost resisted, but in the end I caved over that cute Ulta beach bag.

These are sturdy and perfect for hauling your wet swim gear in. Handles are cheap, but the mesh bit is well constructed.

Anyways here's an idea of an order that will score you 4 GWPS for 31.50. PLUS you'll take in the 3x makeup multiplier.

Fyi: some gwp overlaps in some lip products from Physicians Formula, Winky Lux, Pacifica, Clinique, Perricone MD, Too Faced.

The Too Faced hangover lip balm nearly got me, she's tiny though.



Re: Ulta GWPs

Here's a cart with the Too Faced hangover pillow balms that count towards both Nudestixs and Estee Lauder gwps.

Add a $4 item to get the mega babe gwp.


Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry to say it but the new Two Faced Pillow Balms are terrible! Super goopy and no color payoff and does the mint cooling effect for too long. The chocolate one did smell good though but that's about it. I'm pretty sure it dried out my lips so bad they peeled. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Is there a coupon request thread?  I’d love a $15 off $50 or a $10 off Ulta coupon I’d anyone isn’t going to use theirs!  

Re: Ulta GWPs


There is not a separate request thread. Hopefully someone can hook you up 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs




I also seem to have received a "We Miss You" coupon for the first time.



Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks for the heads up, I got a $10 off in an email account I hardly ever check anymore

Re: Ulta GWPs

Also, wanted to post pictures of my surprise sampler packs.  Two orders placed on June 8th for the men's gifts.  Thought it was interesting that one gift had 4 samples and the other had 9 samples.


This one was included in the order shipped from the TX warehouse - 4 samples.




This is from the NJ warehouse.  I also, got the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer card sample - total - 9 samples.



Re: Ulta GWPs

My order.  Heavy on the lippies. 😄  Thought it was a good time to try the new colors of the NYX butter glosses.
