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:


A list of in store coupons is here:


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

Thanks for the list @RGbrown  - yeah I hear you on the let down part. I usually just pick up my mousse that they usually have on sale and that's about it. I'll try looking at the print ad thank you for the tip!

Sorry to be ignorant, but what's CM?

Edit: I can see it on the Ad and I see those throws/robes again as a GWP with a fragrance buy in. I still have my throw and robe (absolutely love them!) I wonder if it's the same quality.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172  cyber monday!!


ahh, I was hoping and expecting those too....sadly since the sale was screwed up and the perfumes I was gonna order went off sale early, I had to order the one I was saving for later to get w/the blanket...

Re: Ulta GWPs

@treestar86 OMG duh on my part 🤣🤣. I was racking my brain trying to come up with a store LMAO I need to go to bed. Thank you 😘

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172 LOL! no prob., happens to the best of us hehe... 😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

anyone order from the holiday sale today?  I had my bag ready to go but when I went to checkout, I noticed the amount was off and saw that the items were no longer on sale anymore, even though it stated it ended at midnight CT (as usual).  I dont remember that ever happening, I'm always sure to get orders in by 10 PT, so I dont know why everything was suddenly off sale (but still available). 🤔 very dissapointing. 😩

Re: Ulta GWPs

I forgot that I had some of the Lancome balms in my bag. Now they're full price whomp whomp - stupid brain fog 😅.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@treestar86   I went to pick up more Essence lipsticks, and they were back up to normal price.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Ispend2much6  strange. I emailed them but they were no help, as usual...  😑

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp!





Re: Ulta GWPs

Is this a new feature in the app, or have I just never stumbled on it before? Normally I scroll through the color options, left to right, one by one (which is particularly obnoxious when it's something like a nail polish with 65 options), but today I discovered that if you click on "xx options" instead of the swatch circles, it'll pull up a scroll list instead!


I'd LOVE to see Ulta add prices to the list (handy when only certain colors are on sale/clearance), and I could do without the giant product pic taking up half the screen space, but this is a nice start!






Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry @RGbrown, it’s been there all along. Welcome down to us mortals! 😉

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown Nope, not new 🙂

Re: Ulta GWPs


So I'm a "rOoKiE", is what you're saying? Got it loud and clear, Ms Cindy!


(Totally joking with you, of course!)


I'm usually so focused on the dots that I totally missed the list...maybe this will help someone else and I'll feel less idiotic lol. Can't believe I've missed it all this time, as much as I use the app 🤦‍♀️

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown 😄 😄 😄

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown ,

This is a new feature to me.  Probably to a lot of other people, too.  Thank you for sharing this info!

Re: Ulta GWPs


Yay, happy to help!! ❤️
