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 had some makeup items in my bag waiting for a decent GWP and so I got number 1. I have no idea why but I'm such a sucker for Space Bar samples. I was debating the Bobbi Brown GWP yesterday but really it was just the shadow stick that interest me, so the one in here would be nice, too.

Beauty Break is up!

Re: Ulta GWPs

New multiplier, may be targeted 



Re: Ulta GWPs

New Member Love and Hair Goals multipliers 







And a small new gwp, this one adds to cart automatically 



Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown This is super tempting since it’s my birthday month. I need an another foundation like a shot to the head but for this many points (and maybe a good GWP?) I might cave.

Re: Ulta GWPs

And once again this week, foundations don’t seem to trigger the 10x multiplier as they are supposed to… Do we wait for this to get fixed, later this week? Skip this sale and wait for another 5x event? 🙄 @itscarin @RGbrown 




Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru @I noticed it’s the same thing as last week where you get 10x on one item but if you ad more than one 10x item it goes back to 5x. 

my shampoo order just shipped and I’m getting 10x on the qualifying purchases.  I’m not sure if it was just going to get fixed anyway or if it’s only getting fixed because I emailed them as soon as I placed my order (because I’m still pissed about the gift card thing).  

incidentally, I also noticed an issue at Bloomingdale’s similar to this where they have a loyalty program and multiplier events.  I made a purchase, and never got the points credited to my account even though I made my purchase through the app and was logged into to my account and the account showed the order history.  So moral of the story is: always check your points.  

I think I’ve made a few purchases at Bloomingdale’s and never gotten the points.  I just didn’t notice until now because I was expecting a gift card right away as a result of the purchase.  

Re: Ulta GWPs

@civ2ru @itscarin 

Are you not seeing correct points at checkout? For example, I see this in my cart (80+, lol, I'll say)



But when I go to checkout, I see 516 





Even if you aren't, reports on Reddit from last week say that the correct points were posted after it shipped, so it seems to be just another extension of the long running issue Ulta has been having with displaying points properly in the cart. It's a leap of faith, so take a screenshot of the offer in case you need it, but there's a good chance you won't.


ETA: whoops, just noticed your screenshot *is* the checkout page, so you can ignore that part of my post 😬 As long as it's not one of the excluded brands though, you should be ok when points post (hopefully 😜)

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown im late to respond (still with the login issues 4 years later) but in the example you used, you had one of each item.  If you add two of any item, for example 2 foundations or two shampoos, the points are only calculating one item as 10x and the others as 5x. 


Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown @itscarin From CS: “We have looked into this for you and you should be receiving a total of 462 for the foundation. We welcome you to place the order and reach out to us with your order number. Once the order has shipped, if the points have not updated automatically we will go ahead and update this on our end for you. Once again we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Have a lovely rest of the day.”


So, Okay. Now we just need a good GWP. Or higher % cashback. Or both. ☺️

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp 




Re: Ulta GWPs

Is anyone else having issues with the 10x select shampoos and conditioners promo?


for example, if I put the bumble and bumble seaweed shampoo in my cart I get 10x points.  If I add the conditioner, I get about 6x points.  If I take the shampoo out, the conditioner is now back to 10x. 




Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin I have seen reports on Reddit about 10x multiplier not working correctly when combining products. I’m afraid you might have to place separate orders - or contact CS and hope to get a good rep (I haven’t had luck with them lately). Or you could contact them first and get a paper trail that they would adjust points manually, and then place your order? Sorry for the hassle... Ulta has been dropping some balls.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Yes, I, having issues ! items that are supposed to be 10 points are only 5 points
