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

Me too and that great because I want the Dose of colors lipsticks and this is a great discount off that.

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

Me too! I’m grateful to wake up to this!! I usually never get anything. Can’t believe it works on prestige! Missed out on the limited edition Tarte chrome pot last day of summer sale. Sephora SA had the stock in her hand but said it wasn’t the product in the app that I was pointing to. Was in a hurry so I trusted her but it was incorrect. Off to Ulta for Tarte 2nd day in a row after the UD primer!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Drat I didn't win the email lottery this time around Smiley Tongue.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Edit: I just got the $5 off $10, so maybe they are sending them out in batches.


Same @niki172! : - (

Re: Ulta GWPs

@sephoraaddict918 I got the same email as yours later on as well - $5 off of $10. I plan on using it tomorrow to pick up that Nurse Jaime roller (probably). I've heard good things about it.

Re: Ulta GWPs

There's a new brand up tonight...kinda sorta. Ulta loaded a gwp for it, but there aren't any products to buy yet. 😅


Lots of new Smashbox and Tarte and It Brushes up tonight as sets are trickling in!



Re: Ulta GWPs

Surprise deal for tomorrow!



RE: Ulta GWPs

Here are some of the freebies from my latest order. With the skinfatuation, I was subbed the exuviance products in exchange for Origins.

Re: RE: Ulta GWPs

@StTropezBarbie  we're bag twins - I didn't get the Origins either. The Elizabeth Arden bag is quite nice looking!

@StTropezBarbie, Those are some really good GWP. 😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

I made 2 orders last weekend, and the tracking for each one still says "Expected Sept 13" and "Ready to Go". They haven't moved at all, have not actually started their journey, as far as I know. Has this happened to anyone else? Are they actually en route, and the tracking system is at fault, or are my orders just sitting there in the warehouse still?

Re: Ulta GWPs

Update on those 2 orders: They were in my mailbox, in large white bubble mailers which were pretty messed up -- they looked a bit stepped on, or as if they'd been pressed against something that was just dirty.


So, their tracking numbers never showed any progress, and they still don't show as delivered, but they did arrive. When I copy the tracking number and google search it, as opposed to just clicking the tracking link, then I get a little more info but not much more, just that it was UPS Surepost and it was delivered yesterday via USPS at 11:48 am.


Maybe this will just serve as a sneak peek for others who do very small orders in the future! Or not, I've just never had an Ulta delivery in a bubble mailer before.

Yeah, I've gotten bubble mailers from Ulta before, they s...

Yeah, I've gotten bubble mailers from Ulta before, they seem to usually work well for eyeliners and mascaras. Sephora is also experimenting with new packaging for shipments. I've gotten smaller sized Sephora boxes as well as a flat sephora box.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@gingerleigh @itscarin Almost all of my orders recently have been in that big white envelope which is always dirty and items are loosely thrown inside with some broken and leaking. Smiley Sad Not good. I think I’ll have to call CS and tell them. Hoped was a fluke but it isn’t. Only if I’ve gotten the larger GWP has it been in a box. Sorry yours came that way too! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks for letting me know! I hope other retailers will not start doing this :/  @Sunnysmom 


Nothing was damaged, which frankly surprised me, but the dirty bags disgusted me. I got a bottle of All Nighter spray in one bag, and a Lipstick Queen lipstick and CoverFX primer in the other.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Glad yours wasn’t damaged @gingerleigh .  I had lipsticks undone, smashed, oils opened up. 😕 agree on the bags being dirty. Grossed me out too. lol. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@gingerleigh that’s very odd. I’ve never received an ulta order in a bubble mailer before, either, and I think there have been times when my order was flat enough to warrant one. Maybe they’re trying a new thing out. 

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

I would give CS a call. I know they were a huge life saver for me years ago when a Christmas present for someone seemed stuck at the warehouse and not going to make it. After I called CS, the warehouse immediately shipped it out in time. Not sure. Think I just read somewhere they changed something so you might not be the only one? This does happen on occasion anywhere. Even my last shipment with Sephora didn’t show movement for days until day before arrival (I suspect they had to transfer my order which had low stock from a different DC to fulfill it) whereas others shipped within 24-48 hours.

Re: RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

thank you @yuline  Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

Surprise deal added for tomorrow!
