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: Re: Ulta GWPs

I also had this happen to all of my Ulta orders in April (6 of them). I received the same response you did, with an added link to report “where’s my cash back” through their site if I thought it was in error. I went through and did this for each order, and they added the cash back in again. I’m kind of worried this will happen next month with my May orders - not sure what is happening but they did say that Ulta disqualified the cash back, just like in your response. I did not even use a coupon on two of my orders. I saw on Reddit yesterday that this happened to several people with April orders, it prompted me to check and I noticed that my balance was way down. There was no notification about it. I agree, very shady.

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry this happened to you. I don’t ever use 3rd party coupons for any Cashback. I use the coupons on the ULTA site only. This happened to me from Mr Rebates for the same reason. 

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you. 💜  It’s been a stressful month, so maybe that’s making me more irritated than I should be, but this has become a pattern with ULTA/Ebates.  I only ever use the coupons that ULTA offers, never 3rd party coupons. 

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry your having such a stressful time, I hope it gets better for you. I was irritated also when mine was pulled back. They should be more transparent in these things.

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you. 💕 

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

I’ve been checking which orders all of these are.  

EVERY. SINGLE. ORDER. PLACED. IN. APRIL. 🥵🤬  Aaaannnndddd. One from the beginning of OCTOBER.  REALLY?!  So, more than 8 months ago I was approved for an order, and they’re JUST NOW getting around to refusing it?!  This is not right at all. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

UPDATE: I sent out the code. I received a $10 off $50 coupon that I will not be using. It is good until tomorrow (6/9). If anyone is interested, I will PM the code/coupon. Ulta Coupon.png


Re: Ulta GWPs

has the coupon been claimed?


Re: Ulta GWPs

did you already sent it it out?

Re: Ulta GWPs

Yes, I've sent the code out @lauranurse.

Re: Ulta GWPs

New gwp! 

I hope this is a small test into future "build your own" gifts! Pick two (one from each group) with any $25 skincare purchase. Adds to cart automatically. The description also lists a Dermalogica item, but I'm not seeing it...maybe it'll show up later.

oh nice! @RGbrown

oh nice! @RGbrown

Re: Ulta GWPs

This sounds interesting, @RGbrown! Would love to pick my own samples. I am still sad that the checkout samples are completely gone.

Re: Ulta GWPs


I'm kinda sad they're gone too, but then I think about just how many Porefessional cards and Smashbox packets I racked up in those little baggies, and suddenly it seems like less of big deal that they're gone 🤪

Re: Ulta GWPs

LOL, I hear you about those Porefessional cards, @RGbrown! I always picked perfume samples, back in the day when we could pick, and I am always up for trying a new perfume, so that was always a fun little bonus. Oh, well, as long as we have other GWPs, we will be ok Smiley Happy 

Re: Ulta GWPs

There are a couple of new brands up this afternoon as well!

I'm definitely curious about Vitaminsea after seeing the price points...gonna have to look a little deeper. And how fun are the tattoos? 😍





Re: Ulta GWPs

Oh wow the prices on that VitaminSea are good, but the amount you get is better! 2 oz of serums for $12?!


I am intrigued 🤔🤔

Re: Ulta GWPs


I am super intrigued by this line as well. Oddly enough, what's holding me back from grabbing one of the masks right this second is the size...7oz is an awful lot of product to commit to. That would last years for me, and I'm not sure I want to use one mask that long 😂


I need to find these in-store for a sniff test, but I do see myself grabbing a toner at some point if the scent is good!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ooooh... I’m interested in all that VitaminSea stuff. I’m a Florida girl so I love anything beachy. I’ll have to pick some up next time I hit Ulta!

Available now, if interested.

It's working now :)
