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

@Loretta55   Thanks for letting us know.  One less temptation...

Re: Ulta GWPs

Agreed @Ispend2much6! I am currently on a low buy.

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp at $65, and an $85 step up

Item 2588946 and 2588947







Re: Ulta GWPs

Ah yesss, Ulta got the Hourglass holiday palettes this year! They didn't last year, so I'm happy to see it...this might finally be the year I grab one in a points haul 🤞



Re: Ulta GWPs

I am super mad at myself ATM. I had the Universal palette and the new Tarte eyeshadow palette in my cart. I hemmed and hawed for too long (about 7 hours) and both palettes are OOS. Congrats to anyone that picked the Hourglass up I hope it's super pretty. Ugh I'm so mad at myself I had made up a cart that was $128 and was going to cash in points to pay for it but my dumb brain took over with the reasoning that I didn't need another eyeshadow or blush palette. That's the last time I stop to think about a makeup purchase 😅 JK.

Re: Ulta GWPs


The Universal palette is back in stock!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks @RGbrown I saw where the 20% off coupon is no longer working boo! I'm going to go check it out anyways thank you!

Edit: it's OOS again oy vey.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172   There's still reason for hope; this was such an early release I'll bet Ulta will get more in.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Oh no @niki172 ! I hate that. I grabbed it asap as well and didn’t even find a GWP as I panicked it would go OOS! Lol Points plus 20% was terrific deal for these. Good thing there’ll be promos ongoing for you to get them very soon too. 🥰

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Sunnysmom waiting for a GWP was another factor in my hesitancy - so dumb 😂. Ah well I learned a lesson didn't I lol.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  Glad I checked this thread before visiting Ulta. 🙂 I used the 20% code and a gift card to buy the Universe Unlocked palette and a few of the marked down ColourPop Super Shock shadows. I was going to wait til I could see this palette in person, especially since it's very hard right now to find swatches by anyone with a skin tone deeper than medium. (Totally understandable.) But one person's Universe Unlocked swatches showed me HG finally understands the concept of pigmented blushes, so... I'll find out for myself soon enough. 


I like using Radiant Light, so I don't mind the repeat in this palette. I don't have any of HG's bronzers, so I don't care that Radiant Bronze Light is also a repeat. I'm interested to see how it looks on me. Also, this is the first HG holiday palette (excluding the Ghost quad) I've ever bought: it's the first one where all the shades look like they might actually work with my skin tone. 👍

Re: Ulta GWPs

@WinglessOne   I'm happy for you!  This is my second holiday palette, ever.  I think I need to stop after this!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@SportyGirly125  @PrettyPaint @Ispend2much6  I couldn't not get the Universe Unlocked with the 20% off . Sheesh, Nordstrom finally had a decent GWP and that wiped out my wallet so I had to use my $50 points. 

Of course, I couldn't pass up on some Gilmore Girls either 🙃


Re: Ulta GWPs

@Buootiful  What a great deal. The shades in that one are beautiful! I'm so tempted.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Yes they are! Plus, Im tired of the blushes with shimmer @PrettyPaint . If you didnt get it, at least you have time. The Sephora F+F 20% off coupon sale will help you decide 🥰.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Buootiful  Yup - I may be waiting for F&F. I couldn't make up my mind! 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Buootiful   Now that's a great deal!  Yay!  I spent my hoard of points on an Hourglass Curator 5 pan palette.  I wouldn't pay for that full price (or anything less than 50% off,) but it was free, and I like the shades I chose.  There's always something else I could want, right?

Re: Ulta GWPs

Yes, exactly! Enjoy that pan and the holiday one ! I really got it for the, I cant believe Im gonna say this, the marble packaging and that it went back to the heavier container.


I regret not getting the holiday palette from the year before the ghost unlocked palette. @Ispend2much6 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Ispend2much6 I had points to save more money but I decided to save them for later.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown   I didn't wait.  I used the "inspired20" code plus the $6 in points, which brought it to about 27% off (just guessing) so I feel pretty good about it.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Ispend2much6 @PrettyPaint I used the code and had a $15 GC.  I got the universe unlocked after debating for a while between the two.
