Let's keep this thread on topic!

 

Ulta points refresher (because yes, it is that complicated):

 

Spoiler

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

Spoiler

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

Here's the 20pc app exclusive gwp I got today

Ulta really should just move to advertising these as "we'll send you a bag of something that might vaguely resemble the mix of items pictured" for all of their gwps. I tried to lay mine out like the promo pic, but out of the 20 items advertised, I got *nine*. That's a lot of subs, even for Ulta. I was short a piece too, only got 19. Honestly, the Hempz lotion was what I wanted most, and I got it, so yay, and I'll use some of the subbed stuff, so it's all good. Low expectations seem to be key lately 😣

 

I ordered a second of these when it came back on Saturday (a nice stack with P&L bb + hair gwp + this), but it was too good to be true...this one got cancelled when my order finally shipped this afternoon 😥 I knew better than to trust those midnight restocks, but they are always so tempting! Ah well, I needed the hair stuff anyways for a bday gift next month, so at least I got that knocked out.

Re: Ulta GWPs

They are really slipping. They just sent me an email saying they cancelled the $175 bag because they ran out, even though my order was placed at least 6 hours before it went out of stock. So, they got me to spend $175 with the promise of this great bag and now they will still keep my money but will not honor their offer. This is not ok at that dollar amount which I only justified because I was buying holiday gifts, which will now be going back. This seems like false advertising and clearly I'm an unhappy customer. Their email just said sorry, we won't charge you for anything we cancel. So, they are not charging me for the free gift worth over $300, I think it said, but they are still going to charge me for everything I bought to get the free gift.😒

 

I'm so annoyed, this is supposed to be fun, and now I feel bitter. Thanks Ulta, I was happier before I placed the order, now I also have to deal with returning items, more wasted time.

 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@WinterStarlight I would definitely call their customer service line until they offer you something you think is acceptable.  It's hard to put a price on the sampler bag.  You can always return your purchases, too.  That's a more than fair alternative if they can't fulfill their end of the bargain.  It's a total PITA and I'm sorry that happened.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@WinterStarlight 

I am so sorry! Cancelled gwps are pretty rare (though I feel like there has been an upswing in chatter about them lately, at least from what I've seen), but it always stings when it happens, and I totally get your frustration 😥 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@WinterStarlight That is one BUMMER! I know it’s not everyone’s jam, but if I were you I’d totally contact CS about this. This just isn’t the right way to treat a customer, particularly a Diamond member who spends a lot of dough with Ulta. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru I would definitely be calling CS right now if I were her!  In the past they've made me some lousy offers or told me to kick rocks, but I've calmly explained why I believed they were wrong and what I wanted as compensation, and I think I've always been able to find an amicable resolution.  I've only had to call in like 3x in the past 6 years I've been shopping with Ulta.

Re: Ulta GWPs

10.5x points for Diamond is a good deal. There’s a Bobbi brown mascara duo which is buy one get one free, and a Lancome mascara duo which is also buy one get one free. 

I don’t think anyone’s reading this today but if you are, I hope you got your mascara!  

Re: Ulta GWPs

 

 The $80 app exclusive gwp is back (again)...I dunno that I've seen a gwp come and go multiple times like this before 🤔

Re: Ulta GWPs

If anybody picked up the Armani gwp and doesn’t want the keychain, can I buy it from you? I was about to place an order but it’s now OOS. My first name starts with an A and it’s so cute!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Got a package today, so here's some gwp goodness to peruse 😊

 

16pc Conscious Beauty sampler 2

Got 16 pieces, but 4 were subs (grouped in the bottom right of my pic). Missing: Sunday Riley, Fur Oil, ABC conditioner, Urban Veda

And the $175 bag! I'm pretty stoked over this one. I laid out what I could per the picture on the listing (with the rest in the bottom right corner), but did not go through the list line by line since they had a few "assorted samples from these brands" notations. My first joy was seeing the Redken dry shampoo, a true love HG item for me 😍 I got 37 pieces, no packets, and even a travel size perfume, so I'm a happy camper!

The bag is super cute too. It's a little softer than I expected, the fabric is fairly thin, but still feels plush. It's also larger than I had pictured in my head. My pic runs a bit dark/dusty here (terrible lighting), but it's a rich forest green IRL 💚

Re: Ulta GWPs

@CookieGirl1

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown I swear, I get almost excited about the GWPs sometimes as what I actually ordered! 😅

Re: Ulta GWPs

@CookieGirl1 

I know that feeling well 🤣

Re: Ulta GWPs

Mine didn’t come with the bag 😭 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Indy701 

Uuuuuuuugh, that's awful! I'm so sorry! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Beauty Break!

The Armani set is gone, but the $80 app exclusive bag is still kickin' it, if you want to stack (and the $175 bag is still up too ETA: $175 bag oos now 😥)!
