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

It's Sunday, so it's time for a new Member Appreciation multiplier



Re: Ulta GWPs

If you received a bottle of perfume totally empty and had leaked everywhere, but it was after the return period...can you still get a refund or replacement? Since their policy does state that after the 60 days you'll get store credit...but its obviously empty. So will they be able to refuse the return, and claim I just used it, and am trying to return an empty bottle? (I didnt use fact the metal tag is all rusted, and the box has a big dark greasy splotch on the side and the whole thing reeks of chemicals...) 😩

Re: Ulta GWPs


It'll depend on who you get at the register, most any cashier is going to deny an empty return, but with your disgusting box, you've perhaps got a pretty solid case to swap it out. If the register calls for store credit though, I don't think cashiers (or even managers) have any way to override that. You can turn around and buy a gift card with it if you aren't exchanging for a new bottle of perfume immediately, so you can at least convert it into funds available to be spent online. 


For your other comment, Summer Sale is advertised through the 4th. I'm sorry about the nails, perhaps they sold out? 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown thank you. I emailed them and was shocked to see that they offered to re-send it!! 😱 I'd rather have a refund, but didnt wanna push my luck lol. also the size I got is online only, so I guess trying to exchange in store wouldnt work. so I guess I should be grateful that theyre offering to re ship it. the smell from the entire 3 oz bottle being leaked (although it all soaked up/evaporated by now) is the most concerning part...I can smell it from other rooms, so I hope its not making me sick. 😢

Re: Ulta GWPs

I was disappointed to see that the ONE item from their email yesterday that I actually went to look for, I couldnt find anywhere. WTF, Ulta. Why advertise a product that you dont even carry. 😒



also, does the sale go through the 4th? I'd like to save my shopping until perk day, if possible...

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hi all. I could use a dopamine hit. Ulta has the summer sale online until the 4th. Safe to assume platinum perk day will be the NEXT Monday, correct…? 

Re: Ulta GWPs


Nah, not safe to assume. Here's what I posted to someone else with the same question just a few days ago:


"My current guess is the 4th; last year it was on Monday the 5th, which was the official observed holiday, so I wouldn't think it falling on the 4th itself will be a problem. We'll know for sure next Sunday if we get an alert as usual 😊"

Re: Ulta GWPs

RGBrown- any idea what the notification typically hits? Do you think it is past the mark and if so, safe to assume it will be actually next Monday (11th)?

Re: Ulta GWPs


The notification normally comes out at 4pm central, so we are long past seeing one today. There's still a slight chance it'll be tomorrow, they've done Perk Day a time or two in the past without an alert, but I wouldn't hold my breath for it at this point.


Beyond that, I won't try and pin a date on any future guesses though...while they don't happen often, we've seen Perk Days on days other than Monday before, so anything is possible.

New multiplier



Re: Ulta GWPs

Jumbo Love has been ditched in favor of "Summer of Hair Love" and it pales in comparison to the liter sales of the before times 😞 Beauty Brands has started their jumbo event, and if they carry what you want, the deals are much better over there. JCP usually runs good prices too, though I haven't checked their site out to see if it has started yet or how it's looking.





Summer Sale is up and running as well, now through July 4





And we've got new multipliers for Customer Appreciation, Hair Goals, and Fragrance Crush 







Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown I'm kind of annoyed at Ulta- they sent me a 25% off coupon for hair styling products (including prestige) but when I got rung up it didn't include Color Wow or Olaplex 😑. Thanks for updating the coupons!

Re: Ulta GWPs


Oh good grief, I'm sorry to hear that! Sounds about like a goof Ulta would make 🙄

Re: Ulta GWPs

When do you guys think the next Perk Day will be? The 1st is on a Friday and the 4th is a holiday. 

I am hoarding my points but so eager to spend them lol

Re: Ulta GWPs


My current guess is the 4th; last year it was on Monday the 5th, which was the official observed holiday, so I wouldn't think it falling on the 4th itself will be a problem. We'll know for sure next Sunday if we get an alert as usual 😊
