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.

Ulta GWPs

Looks like these were mailed out and should show up between today and Friday and have unique one time use 20% off codes. Not sure if everyone is getting this, or if it's targeted again. @ohheyitscindyk


Re: Ulta GWPs

@alexalicious Ooh thank you!! This wasn't in my Informed Delivery email today, so fingers crossed I'll get it soon!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I just received the same postcard @alexalicious,@ohheyitscindyk . This is a completely different code from the other 2 codes that I received & used. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Heads up for anyone who likes the Living Proof brand: new GWP added today (really nice, it's basically the full volume kit!), stacks with the previous GWP of PhD shampoo/conditioner

 - get both at $30 LP spend. Plus 5x points, plus 20%, plus GWPs ($80 buy-in bag and Hempz are both available at time I'm posting). WHEW. 




Re: Ulta GWPs

I am not sure if anybody else has noticed that when you attempt to redeem 4000 points, only 3950 points are deducted from your account. I guess that Ulta only wants us to redeem 2000 points at a time.

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Did you ladies use the app or website? I placed an order on the website redeeming 2000 points and had no issues.

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

I used the website for the 2000 point redemption @Maria88. I thought that it took the first time but then I noticed that I was going to be charged more for my order than I thought. I then removed the points redemption and tried again then it would not go beyond 1950 points. On the final try it actually took so I placed my order.

 The larger redemption of points was in store because I wanted to get my birthday gift and to use the $10.00 birthday credit so I picked up 3 of the Pumpkin Foaming Hand Cleansers. I also do not use dry shampoo so my SA gave me multiple choices and I chose a Benefit set that contained a deluxe sized Roller Lash Mascara along with 2 Roller Lash Eyeliners, one each in black and brown.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I just used my other 20% off coupon in addition to 2000 points and I was able to stack the Beauty Break and the GWP’s. The system made it difficult to redeem in 2000 point increments. The system kept locking at 1950 points. It took multiple tries to get to the 2000 point redemption. Be careful when redeeming points because there is a huge discrepancy between 1950 points and 2000 points. 1950 points has a $86.00 value and 2000 points has a $125.00 value. That is a $39.00 difference.   

Ulta GWPs

Uh oh. I think I am banned from Ulta. I still recieve emails, but I spoke with a rep who said that I will not be able to place an order and that they will follow up with me in 5 to 7 business days. The funny thing is, I got a 70 dollar charge from last month, for a purchase that I did not make and now, I am unable to make a purchase. Unfortunately, Ulta may have just lost my buisness. Darn. I will miss the free gifts, but my wallet thanks them.

Ugh, my biggest beauty fear...sorry. I've seen a couple of threads about this issue. Do you have the Ulta credit card and are you Platinum? Seems most peeps falls under these categories. So unfair your credit card gets compromised and YOU get punished.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry to hear about that @Ashletta216. Anytime I have had a similar problem, I just contacted the credit card company directly and I let them do their due diligence. That way I have always had the problem solved to my satisfaction.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks for sharing @quetzalina!!! I just placed my order, stacked those GWPs, and cashed in my points! I LOVE this thread because by the time Ulta sent the email about today's Beauty Break, I had already placed my order. LOL


This might be my best Ulta haul yet!!! I got the Classy & Confident before, so I'm interested in seeing if this bag will be different from the first one.Ulta Haul.png


Yes, thank you!! I had to pull the trigger too and stack...

Yes, thank you!! I had to pull the trigger too and stack the two GWPs. I got the last beauty bag and I'm curious what subs I'll get, since it's the tail-end of the promotion. 😁

Re: Yes, thank you!! I had to pull the trigger too and stack...

You’re welcome @magda124, and @sephoraaddict918  I’m wondering about subs too, especially since I haven’t even gotten the first bag I ordered and the reviews on these bags have been mentioning 8-9 subs! I’ve noticed a lot of subs lately and my Lorac Diamond perk from September was dried out and useless. A previous bag I got (28 piece w/$70 purchase in August) had all 5 prestige deluxe samples subbed with drug store items, packets or nothing  (these 5 were the reason I got it in the first place) and I’m scared to call and complain for fear of getting banned! This sort of behavior reminds me of what happened at Sephora over the past few years, which is why I’m no longer Rouge, so I hope ulta isn’t on the same downward spiral. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

This was tempting, but then I had to remind myself that Ulta overcharges for all Hempz products by about 2x.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I had no idea @itscarin. I don’t use Hempz but I found one of their lotions inside of a draw at work and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. I usually use JOSIE MARAN - Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter

Re: Ulta GWPs

I know what you mean @itscarin, plus I find these HEMPZ lotions at TJMaxx all the time for $10.50. My girls use this lotion like crazy, so for me it's worth it. I pulled the trigger for this, the $80 GWP, and used one of my 20% off coupons for a small order and got  both GWPs with a $69 purchase. Its funny, I got another one of these GWP bags with a previous purchase and I had to spend $80 after the coupon. This had never happened before, but it's not happening anymore with the 20% off coupons so I guess it was a fluke. I was hoping it wasn't a permanent thing! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@quetzalina @itscarin 

The 20% off one item q changes the price of the item in the cart, before the subtotal, so it makes the cart see the total differently for gwps...most other Q's calculate the discount after the subtotal, letting you sneak the gifts in cheaper after coupon.
