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:


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

I received my Diamond Welcome Gift yesterday! Inside the shiny purple envelope was a booklet giving the run down of all the Diamond benefits and the coupons for the Diamond Gift and the Beauty Services.


I use the Ulta Brow and Skin Bars, so I'm always excited about the $25 Service Gift Card, but I'm not too excited with the choices for the Diamond Gift. I will probably choose the mascara.Diamond Gift.png


Re: Ulta GWPs

Those aren't the most exciting options for a Diamond gift, @sephoraaddict918, but I'm interested to see that they're now offering a choice of product. I feel like Ulta has really struggled to work out the whole Diamond gift thing since the inception of the new tier. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I totally agree @quspork! Although these choices don't excite me, I am glad we are given choices this year. I also wonder if the choices will change depending on when you reach Diamond status.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@sephoraaddict918 Thank you for the picture! I'm still waiting on mine, how long did it take you to receive yours?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk, I got the official email on June 24, and it said to expect my gift within 4-6 weeks, but it took less than a month for mine to come! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@sephoraaddict918 I'll have to keep a look out for it then, thank you! Smiley Happy

RE: Ulta GWPs

Has anyone received and successfully used an Ulta e-gift card? I received one from Ulta beauty cashstar email for missing an item on one gwp. The interesting thing tho is I never called Ulta about missing an item. In fact, I hadn’t made a recent purchase. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Re: RE: Ulta GWPs


I've had Ulta send eCards without me contacting them before; they're usually pretty good about reaching out automatically if a gwp gets cancelled, though sometimes it takes a couple weeks. And I've never had a problem using one 😊

RE: Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

Thanks @RGbrown! Just wanted to make sure it wasn’t a scam. The emails and sender look legit. This may have something to do with a gwp sitting in my cart but I never pulled the trigger on purchasing. Guess it’s gone now. Rarely do you get something for nothing. Nice perk so no complaints.

Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

When I've gotten them from ebates I never had a problem.

RE: Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

@mwg1 I didn’t know ebates offered e gift cards. I know retailmenot does

Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

@StTropezBarbie  I have. I actually received mine for the exact same reason. It was very easy to redeem (there should be a code you input at checkout).

RE: Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

@gonerogue good to know! Curious...did you call about a missing item or was the gift card sent uninitiated?

Re: RE: Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

@StTropezBarbie  I emailed CS to report the error in my GWP order and they replied with just sending me the link to the E gift card via email.

The sample bag was really weak this time; 2 foil samples of primers and of course one is the smashbox one. The gwp bag looks good. I wish I would have waited and gotten one of the stackable gwps.

RE: Ulta GWPs

Today, online only get a free deluxe mascara from Tarte with the purchase of any eyeshadow palette. Also get 4% cash back using ebates.

Re: Ulta GWPs

OH NOES!!!  My latest Ulta package is being sent via Lasership!!! Smiley Sad   I have only had bad experiences with these guys (packages marked as "delivered" but nowhere in sight) to the point where I'm considering saying goodbye to online orders and exclusively shopping in-store instead. 


At least Sephora lets you opt out by specifically choosing USPS for delivery....does anyone know of any Ulta workarounds for these Lasership bozos?

Re: Ulta GWPs

I, too, have only had bad experiences with Lasership.  I did not know about the ability to avoid it at Sephora.  Please tell me how!  Thanks for your post.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@iwantitfree it was a life saver when I realized Sephora had that option!  in your shopping cart after you click "Checkout", there'll be a place where you can edit your shipping options.  Pick option 3 (USPS Priority) and make sure to click "Save & Continue".  You have to do that for every order since it always defaults to *shudder* Lasership.
