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.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I noticed that for packages that have higher value laser ship is used, but for orders around $25 it goes through UPS Surepost (USPS).

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Loretta55 What don't you like about it, if you don't mind me asking? I've never tried the brand before.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I am not good at describing but I did not like the feel of the sunscreen on my body @ohheyitscindyk . @Buootiful describes it better than I can. Their lip balms feel like I applied straight oil to my lips and it was not a comfortable feeling. I did receive Sun Bum products during a Beauty Break last year. The only thing that I liked was a Sun Bum beach towel.

Re: Ulta GWPs


Aaahhhh, thank you for the reminder...I knew I didn't like their "sunscreen lip balm" for some reason, but I couldn't remember why. Yes, super soft and borderline slimy/oily!


Their cocobalm (which is one of the two balms in this bag) is completely's got a much stiffer texture, a little thicker than the typical balm stick like Burt's Bees etc. I like it just fine, and my sis adores it...she's not a fan of softer balms at all and had been looking for something with a little more oomph when I found this one for her.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk For me, I dont like the fact that they use chemical sunscreens and not mineral. Also, I like my products without  BHT, cyclopentasiloxane, HIGH content of Fragrance, Aroma. Flavor, and Parfum

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hmmmm, live at noon? I wonder if it's really noon, or more like Beauty Breaks that start at "10am" but actually go live at 6? 🤔 It's not a bad set...wouldn't mind trying a new sunscreen...will have to check it out! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

I was thoroughly annoyed when I got the 350pt/$50 bonus points offer instead of the 4x, since bonus points have been one-time use lately (I swear I remember older ones being unlimited, but that's been a year or two now). BUT! I placed a second order yesterday, and got the bonus points again! Hooray for multiuse offers! 🎉🥂

If I had that promo in my offers I'd keep shopping, it's...

If I had that promo in my offers I'd keep shopping, it's just too tempting. Congrats on winning the promo lottery @RGbrown

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown   Then you're only 300 points away from a nice points reward, or it put you over the edge for a better one. Smiley Happy  Yay!

Re: Ulta GWPs


Over the edge of the next one, definitely. Now the only question is how many more next edges do I want to cross? 😋 As long as I spend $50, it's 8.5x back (aka just over 50%), which is a very nice return!

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!

I got those same items, too!

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

Re: Ulta GWPs


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


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 🙄
