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: Ulta GWPs

That’s crazy they would sell out @SportyGirly125! Well I can’t wait to try mine:)

ditto! No email and where in the heck is this deal on the app, not seeing anything about these. Seems super secret. lol Thanks for posting @RGbrown!

@alexalicious @ohheyitscindyk 

Apparently Ulta is trying to one-up Sephora with the super secretness of the deals 🤣🤣🤣🤣 I went crazy searching all over the app and the site for mention of them too, and came up with nothing. I do not understand that marketing strategy AT ALL. "Hey, let's put something on sale, but tell next to no one about it" 🙄

 

I didn't get an email either...I happened across it on Reddit (which I meant to put in my post, but forgot. Remembering much more than one complete thought at a time is apparently too much of a chore for me some days 😋)

Re: Ulta GWPs

ooh, i wonder if that clarins mist is any good...

Re: Ulta GWPs

@drrragon 

I had a sample of it; it was very perfumey. Kinda fitting that the minis come in the little perfume sample bottles...that's essentially what it was. It wasn't a big enough sample to really get much use out of it, but the excess fragrance put it on my nope list anyways. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

doh!  that's a no-go for me also.  oh well, you saved me $10 and a trip to the store tomorrow so thanks! 🙂 Heart  @RGbrown 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@drrragon 

Happy to help save a few bucks! 

(Tomorrow would have been too late anyways...this ends with the daily deals overnight!)

Re: Ulta GWPs

New bonus points offer. I was excited to see something on my list...until I read it. Not a fan of these one-product wonders.

 

It works out to roughly 6x, plus your 1/1.25/1.5x (the product is $76), so it's really not a bad deal if this is something you are interested in.

 

All the reviews are from influenster 🙄🙄🙄

 

Any others out there?

Ulta GWPs

Here's what I got in my Affiliate Beauty Bag with $30 online purchase from 8/29 It was posted on this group thread and did not require any special status, the only requirement was a $30 purchase.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@alexalicious  Nice bag

Re: Ulta GWPs

Starting with the advertised bag, I had these two subs:

-got the dark purple Alterna packets instead of the light purple set

-got a 0.5oz tube of PUR Cloud Cream moisturizer instead of the Weleda packet

 

I don't recall now which UD shade was advertised, and I don't feel like looking it up, but I received Manic (and was kinda thinking it was supposed to be something else).

 

All in all, these were nice bags for the buy in! 

Sounds like you got upgraded @RGbrown!! The UD looks like...

Sounds like you got upgraded @RGbrown!! The UD looks like it had a typo on the original description... so I'm guessing it was supposed to be manic, same as I got.

Re: Sounds like you got upgraded @RGbrown!! The UD looks like...

@alexalicious 

ah, thanks for the list! I knew I didn't recognize the UD name on my super quick scan of the list, but that explains why it didn't look familiar. I just didn't pay close enough attention lol 😛

 

I am always down for a sub-done-right, even if I'm disappointed in missing out on a particular item. Equal or better value. Sadly, Ulta doesn't get it right often enough, but this is proof that they can do it every now and again.

subs were Hask cactus shampoo and conditioner, Alterna caviar moisture s&c, and ts Redken shampoo. BB invisible oil shampoo and conditioner, Alterna bond repair shampoo and conditioner, and ts Joico purple shampoo we're pictured. I would have definitely preferred the pictured hair products. That bumble and bumble seems to be frequently subbed and has eluded me every time. All in all a Good bag for $30 buy in, the affiliate bags usually are and tend to go quick.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I knew I wouldn't hold onto my points until the holiday sets are out, but I am really happy with everything I bought with points and minimal cash, and that's what counts. 🙂
