Let's keep this thread on topic!

 

Ulta points refresher (because yes, it is that complicated):

 

Spoiler

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

Spoiler

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: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Nice variety, @Ninsch!

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

I got the same gift. I was pleasantly surprised with the product selection and size. Very generous!

I got those same items, too!

@abc345 I got the same thing! not a bad little gift.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ABC345 

Nice to see one! What are the little black tube and the white box?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown, the black tube is Smashbox Primer Stick, and the white box is Beauty Bakerie oil, really excited to try it!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ABC345 

Oh, nice! I'd love to try the Beauty Bakerie oil too! Congrats!

I didn't even know Smashbox made a primer stick 😋

Re: Ulta GWPs

While we are on the subject of substitutions, here's the Nourish 6pc hair sampler from last week. Two subs, neither of them desirable to me...

Screenshot_20190605-183645.pngWhat it should have had

 

IMG_20190605_183729626.jpgWhat I actually received

 

 

-It's a 10 Miracle Styling Potion instead of the System Professional Smoothen Mask

-System Professional volume shampoo packet (!!!) instead of the SP Volume mask ds

 

I should have known it would happen since the the SP masks were what I wanted most 🙄

@RGbrown I think I got the one you wanted. I'm so not interested in it after reading the ingredients. SLS's , parabens, the whole gambit of stuff you dont want. I'm giving mine away. If you really want it let me know via DM. I might be able to send to you depending on where you live. but I caution you...its bad stuff. **disclaimer ** I read those ingredients in poor lighting with that teeny tiny print so check them out online 1st....** ;-)

@RGBrown okay dokey I hope you g

@RGbrown okay dokey I hope you get them!

@MelBeez 

Aw, thanks for the offer, but it really isn't worth the postage. Hopefully they'll pop back up in another gwp and I'll get a chance to try those masks then Smiley Happy

My skincare gwp step up from 5/29 subbed a F.A.B. cleanser for the dermalogica. Bummer since it was the one thing in this set I really wanted to try, the others are all repeats. That dermalogica is $73 for a 1.7 oz so the .24oz sample has a value of $10.30 If they're going to sub, it would be nice if the items are similar in value and or product type at least.

Re: My skincare gwp step up from 5/29 subbed a F.A.B. cleanse...

Ah, yep, I'd be annoyed with that one too...Dermalogica was the only thing I was interested in, and the FAB cleanser is no good for me. I'm glad I missed out on it now lol

Ulta GWPs

I got my Platinum perk day order today. I wanted to share the substitutions in my 33 item bag. 1. The Ritual shower gel was a differentscent. 2. A Donna Karen fragrance sample instead of the DKNY rollerball. 3. PTR Vitamin C serum instead of the No. 7 serum. 4. Sleek Makeup Lip gloss instead of the liner. 5. The B.b. Surf spray is listed as 1.7 oz. BUT I received a 0.5 oz.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I received basically the same things as you, except I didn't receive the PTR sample (received a .1oz of the No7 serum), the Murad, or the Fekkai. Instead, I received 2 samples each of the IT lotion, Boscia mask, Origins mask, BB spray, and the FAB cream. I had a total of 36 samples instead of 33.

Same as you, except I would have LOVED that PTR instead of the No7, which is actually pretty good but I haven't tried that PTR yet. I'm happy with all 4 of my subs. And I totally agree @Lazybeautybeast with you on the Murad and Beauty Bakery. Those high end skincare items and luxury brands are generally why I bite. I'm also a big fan of getting Indy makeup up items to try out.

Re: Ulta GWPs

It's funny how one sub can make or break a bag for someone. I'd been considering it, but the possibility of not getting the Happy Buddha body wash changes my outlook on this one completely, and I'm glad I haven't caved yet 😋

I totally agree. I really wanted the new Murad peel and flour powder and I would have be upset if they weren't in there. With that high of a buy-in, it wouldn't take much for me to pass on it.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Actually the Nars pencil should be a FS, but 0.06oz VS 0.08oz....I'm totally fine with it.

I really like the PTR C serum! Really happy to see this one instead of No.7.

Also, I got Smashbox primerizer sample instead of the silicone one, yeah!

I totally would have preferred the primerizer over the original.

RE: Ulta GWPs

Still some pretty good items. Thanks for sharing. Looks like you got the watermelon towel too.
