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

The $60 Fragrance tote is up! I was kinda hoping there might be some color choices within the varieties, but nope. I'd say "that's ok because I'm not buying any fragrance anyways", but somehow I always wind up with at least one, if not multiples 😅 I'm totally crushing on the tobacco color of the backpack, even though I never use backpacks, so maybe I'll go for it at some point 🤔





New multipliers









WNW x Saved by the Bell is up! (12 items total, I didn't take a shot of all of them)





Colourpop x Power Puff Girls is up





We've got two new brands as well: Eczema Honey and Lamik Beauty






And last but certainly not least, it looks like all BECCA (minus the wildly popular undereye corrector) is finally half off, including highlighters,  bronzers, and primers. Get it while you can!



Re: Ulta GWPs

Re: Ulta GWPs

From bdBFF

I don't know the exp date



Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry to go off topic here for a bit but if anyone follows BDBFF on instagram, you saw the blind item she wrote about a "once popular beauty blog" that has shifted its content to post "the beauty deals that I find".  Does anyone know what the "once popular beauty blog" is?  I have a guess but I'm not sure.  I love a good blind item.  Please share your guesses if you have them!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin. Hmmm.... I don't have insta so I can't see her posts anymore, but one blog I read is posting more deals than they used to but not sure if that's it. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin I saw that post too.  Not sure who she is talking about.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin I saw that as well, but I have no clue who she's talking about. Does someone here have a beauty deals blog? I don't think she's talking about here (or someone here) but it briefly crossed my mind that maybe she was??? I wonder if someone in her comments on her recent posts will say something.

Re: Ulta GWPs


What's a "blind item"? I barely use IG to check out swatches or deals from time to time, and am definitely not savvy about how to use it 😋 I do follow her, but don't see whatever this is you're asking about, and am curious!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown @A blind item is a gossip term of art. It’s when the publisher is afraid to name the subject because they don’t want to get sued for libel, so instead they make something a question without revealing the answer, but they give you plenty of clues in the question. 

For example, they might want to say JLo and Ben Affleck got into a fight at a restaurant but they don’t want to say that directly for whatever reason, they want to maintain plausible deniability, so they’ll say something like “This singer/actress from the Bronx got into a screaming match with her new boyfriend. She accused him of cheating and he told her to go screw. How do you like dem apples?”


the key clues would be that she’s a singer/actress from the Bronx and the use of the phrase “how do you like dem apples?” Which is well known from good will hunting, his break out debut. This is a really silly example but this is the basics of what a blind item is. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin hmm, I remember reading something like that in a magazine decades ago, alluding to will smith & jada being swingers, lol... ;o


and speaking of Jlo...they were talking about her on the radio, and said she only uses olive oil on her face!?!? 😲 if thats true, then why does she have a beauty line...? lol. 🤔 and I doubt you could only use olive oil and still look that great at 50, but who knows...maybe whatever fancy expensive treatments she can afford are enough?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@treestar86 @Total garbage. If you could look like that with olive oil we’d all look like that. I saw one of her riders from her tours and it was all la mer products.  LOL. Idk, I respect her for looking like that at 50 but I don’t respect her selling snake oil. 

I can’t with people like her and Kylie “it’s not filler, it’s just lip liner” Jenner. Go peddle your lies somewhere else. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin  hmm...yeah, reminds me of a Britney special on tv circa ~2000, where some girl came up and asked if that was her natural hair...she was like "yeah, it is". soon as she leaves... "no, its not". 😒


yeah I thought maybe just being rich and able to 'live well' and afford the best treatments and stuff might explain it...but yeah. ;/

Re: Ulta GWPs

@treestar86 @My favorite phrase is “you’re not ugly you’re just poor”. 😂. Plastic surgery, filler, Botox, etc is so common place nowadays. 

this is a tangent but I used to think lala Kent from vanderpump rules was really pretty. Then I saw a picture of her with no make up and 😬 her face is about to burst with fillers. Idk what happened but somehow without makeup she looks freakish with the fillers but with the makeup she looks lovely and natural. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin  wow lol...yeah thats how all these kids of rich/famous ppl (kylie + kendall, bella + gigi) can become models and billionaires. I've also thought yeah if I 'came from money' I could be super gorgeous too lol. 😆


I like "ugly is the new pretty" (from ugly betty, lol). still waiting for that to catch on, tho... 😏😅

Re: Ulta GWPs


OK, I thought you meant some sort of IG-specific feature just for followers or something, not the general gossip term. In any case, I guess she deleted it or else I haven't gone far enough back in her posts, as I don't see it

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown @It’s still there. Here’s the whole story if you’re interested. 






Re: Ulta GWPs

Well that's saucy!

I feel for her, that doesn't seem fair if someone is piggy backing on her. 

I don't use that platform so I'm always grateful when people who do share posts and info about deals here, but from what I can tell people here often/always credit their source if they had one, which is a polite nod and right thing to do. 

I've credited usgwp when I've found things there.

I've seen other credit bdbff specifically on here.


I think stealing someones work without crediting them is aweful. It does take time to hunt for deals, stacks and hidden discounted items. 


That said, I don't need credit for anything I post, just enjoy. But if I ever reposted or shared anything from here you bet I'll give you credit. 


If I don't say it enough, I'm super grateful for all the deal posts and info sharing here. Thank you!!! I've saved a lot of money and earned a ton of freebies over the years. ❤️❤️❤️
