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
Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and 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) /ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12345678. Replace the 8 digit product id of the item you want to see with the sample id.

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
their site has been such a pain lately...slow and it keeps asking me to login repeatedly. I was trying to place an order by 10pm to get the 4x pts., but with it repeatedly asking me to login, then when I go to checkout and add my gift card, it makes me enter my address!!! which it hasn't done before since signing up...so after entering then of course it makes me login again, and of course have to enter my gift card again...I was trying to get the order in by 10, and with all that hassle and just trying to get the order in, I guess I didn't notice that the coupon I had already entered repeatedly must not have been there when I had to login again...grrr. and it looks like I only got the 7x pts on sunscreen, not the extra 4x pts., even though the email says 10:00 exactly, so it was obviously placed before then...grrr, what a pain. I emailed them and they said it looks like I already got the points, although they take a few days to show up so I guess I'll have to wait and see...

(I haven't checked out the link yet, but I'm already annoyed that I've already bought my sunscreen for the year, and this is one thing that really shouldn't be stockpiled lol)
And a new brand!
Re: Ulta GWPs
Ok, just wanted to showcase one thing from the new multiplier (which has a vaguely disappointing selection, by the way, with only 44 items).
I had looked at this product before, and it only had three scents, none of which appealed to me all that much, but now they've added a fourth that sounds simply divine. I have nowhere fun to rock glitter sunscreen, but I might have to pick this up anyways 🤩

Here's my sample pack. I am super excited about the Urban Skin Rx pumpkin mask! The Mad Hippie vitamin A looks promising too; a packet isn't enough to see results from a retinoid, but at least I'll be able to feel the texture and get an idea if it may be something I want to buy in the future.
We will never ever escape Smashbox primer. Never. 😋
Here's my mystery sample pack from Wednesdays order. So d...
