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


I saw one on Reddit exactly like yours, and another poster over there mentioned getting the full size setting mist as well, but didn't say what else they got. I'm curious what other variations might be out there too!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hi, I'm not sure if I can ask here, but let me know if I can't. I was wondering if anyone has  $15 off $50 coupon they won't be using and wouldn't mind messaging me it? I could also trade a $10 off $40 for it. Thanks in advance.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@aznlilchika @You can ask but there’s currently a 20% coupon out that’s good on prestige (-dyson, Chanel, and fragrance). $15 off $50 is 30% off, but only if you spend exactly $50. You’ll get the same dollar value off of a $75+ purchase. 

assuming you’re only spending $50, yes you’ll lose $5 but you can do your shopping without hoping for a code.  Ultaxmaya20 icymi. You can also still get your choice of 8 piece hair sampler if you order in the next 40 mins. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hi, My purchase is more around $50, so I was just trying to shoot my shot. Haha. Thanks for replying though.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Loop by Ulta is live! (Might have been for a while now, not sure...kinda forgot all about this after hearing of it what, last year?)

They've got select products (just 49 for now) in returnable, reusable packaging; you pay a deposit when you buy it, then get that refunded when you return the bottle/jar and shipping container. For now, returns have to be mailed back, though they say they are working on local options (surely Ulta stores will become dropoff points!).

They've currently got a promo going on; 20% off and free shipping with code PLASTICFREEJULY (thru 7/31). Credit to xub543 on reddit for the info!

Re: Ulta GWPs


😳 so you'll earn your Ulta points + red card and get the Target circle discounts?!!

I wonder how those $5 Giftcard on $20/$25 spend offers are going to work, wonder if we will see exemptions galore???

Also really wondering if we will see Ulta xTarget beauty boxes like Sephora xJCPenney's??? 


All in all this looks fairly exciting. 

That drawing looks awfully similar to Sephora in JCPenney's, but in Dunkin Donuts colors.🤔


Sephora definitely wore it better/has better styling. Lol


Re: Ulta GWPs

@CatheRH Ulta has drug store brands and high end brands.  They even carry brands Sephora doesn’t and have a better point system. 

Re: Ulta GWPs


While there is definitely some overlap between the two in what they carry, Ulta has quite a bit that Sephora doesn't. Drugstore brands are the most notable difference...Ulta has a bunch of those, but there are also quite a few differences in prestige and the smaller, more niche brands between the two.


Prices are set by the brands themselves, so yes, Ulta and Sephora should have the same price on items they both carry.


Where Ulta shines though is with sales/coupons/gwps. Ulta got a little off track with coupons during the pandemic, so we are all a bit out of sorts over that, but in "normal" times they have 5-6 20% off coupons a year, good for nearly everything in the store. Ulta offers significantly more gwps than Sephora, ranging from something like today's Beauty Break (4pc set from one brand) to 30+pc bags containing a wide mix of items; buy-in for these can range from $30 to $175. This happens at least once a week, if not 2 or 3 or even 4 times. And if there's more than one available at any given time, you can stack them. 


Ulta's reward program is way better than Sephora's as well. Ulta offers multipliers fairly frequently, and points can redeemed for money off your purchase instead of being locked into select items from the Bazaar. 2000pts at Ulta is $125 off your order (that's only $40 at Sephora if you use the $10/500pts at checkout, or $80 worth of a $100 Rouge Reward if you save up 2500 and are lucky enough to redeem one).


I know everybody has their own reasons for shopping wherever they shop, and that's totally ok...but I'll also say you should definitely give Ulta a gander! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Beauty Break is up! $60 buy-in

Gift includes:
  • Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara deluxe sample (0.1 oz)
  • Blush Color Infusion deluxe sample (0.1 oz)
  • Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick mini in La Rose
  • Pure Canvas Primer Hydrating deluxe sample (0.17 oz)


Re: Ulta GWPs

Just a quick code update tonight: ULTAXELLE20 is still working, and we now also have ULTAXMAYA20. Reminder that these exclude Dyson, Chanel, and The Ordinary (as usual), and also fragrance (big sad 😥).


Re: Ulta GWPs

I placed an order on Sunday and it arrived here today. I added the 6 piece deluxe sampler (even though I don’t have an ulta cc) and this is what I got:


Full sized beauty blender setting mist!  Retail value is $30. I already have more setting mists than what I can use, so I’ll probably give this away.  It’s still a fun surprise though!  

I might make another order just for the fun of it. Lol 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Oooh that setting spray looks good!  😱 Hope I get one too.🤞 The cc mystery bag was pretty good last time round too, think I remember a mini perfume and some decent deluxes. 

@itscarin thanks so much for posting! You know I'm always dying to know what's actually in these mystery things and gwp bags. 

And thank goodness, no expired Kylie products. Whew! 

Re: Ulta GWPs


A full size item? Nice! Too bad it went OOS... whomp whomp 😥
