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

Hi Everyone, instead of posting that you want the link in the thread, can you just pm someone directly?  It's clogging up the thread.  Thanks for your understanding!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks @itscarin for all you do for this thread! I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes by adding that I check Kimberley's blog with the same name as her BT thread, Deals too good to pass up, for all of the links. She usually keeps everything up to date on what is available at Ulta. It saves some time Pm'ing.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry didn't think this completely through lol >.<

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'm wondering, can we set up a semi-private Google spreadsheet with all the links? That way, everyone just needs to save the spreadsheet to their drive, email or bookmarks and a few people can have access to edit and add links? Would take the pain out of looking for the link every time and having the links removed (and we can just PM the link to the Google spreadsheet).


If ppl like this idea, I can set it up.


Re: Ulta GWPs

@keepra I think that's a great idea, I'd be glad to help also. Maybe there can be a separate doc or tab for picture coupons also?

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'll try setting something up right now Smiley Happy Can anyone who has links/images PM them to me? I'll go through this thread and my email and grab any that are still visible

Re: Ulta GWPs

Can someone please PM the links for the Lancôme, Tarte, and It Cosmetics freebies to me?  I can't get them to pull up on Ulta's site.  Thanks.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Sent you a PM @ragdoll4mom Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'll snap a picture later but FYI with the Living Proof Beauty Break from last week -- it actually is the hairspray and the two LP GHD shampoo & conditioner, not the timeless trio that they sent a back up email out about. 


Kind of hilarious that they said you'll get A, send out an email saying you'll get B, and then you get A anyway.  Oh well!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I actually did get the Timeless set. I placed 2 orders that day, one of which came with only the hairspray (not the timeless, the other one) as I guess the shampoo & conditioner were sold out by then. But then I went to place another order and the options had changed. So I think anyone who placed an order before the handover is getting phd, and if you ordered after you're probably getting Timeless.

Re: Ulta GWPs

What actually is the difference?

Re: Ulta GWPs

I want to take a minute to thank everyone on this and the deals too good to pass up thread for enabling me. I couldn't have done all this damage without you Smiley Wink


For reference, all the items on the left were freebies from ulta. The ones on the right (bare minerals, it cosmetics, Clinique) were items I purchased from ulta a couple weeks ago. 



Re: Ulta GWPs

ULTA is so much better when it comes to GWPs. I got the Blue bag today and I placed another order online last week and got the Gold bag which is on its way.




Re: Ulta GWPs

Wow! This is really awesome. I just started following the boards. Hopefully I'll be building up a stash as well with all the great deals!

Re: Ulta GWPs

the Butter mascara is back in stock.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Would someone please send me the link?  Thanks and appreciation in advance. Smiley Very Happy


Got it!

Re: Ulta GWPs

OOS again. Oh, well.  Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

The Butter London double decker mascara freebie is OOS

Re: Ulta GWPs

That was the only good one. The colors on the other two are the ones I'd destash!

Re: Ulta GWPs

The good news is there is a mascara in both of the $75 bags.  It's either the rollerlash or they're real mascaras.  Smiley Very Happy
