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

I also skipped today’s BB. Thank you very much @niki172, your logic helped me to skip the offer. I just went to a freestanding Ulta to purchase Tend Skin.

Re: Ulta GWPs

You're welcome @Loretta55 . Rarely do I turn down a GWP, but I've been trying this year especially hard not to place an order unless the GWP is just something outstanding/something I know that I'll use.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@niki172 You wouldn't believe how much stuff I gave away last year.  Fortunately, the hospital I work at asked for travel size samples of toiletries, so I had them covered.  Even with that declutter, I still have too much stuff.  I kind of can't wait until I move this Saturday -- I'm planning on having a dedicated makeup room, so I can finally have all my stuff in one place which I think will help me declutter.  Right now I have things stashed in drawers all over the place.  The hoarding thing just kind of creeps up on you sometimes!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'm about to move and have a dedicated make up room too! I am so excited!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin I have all of my stuff that's not used on a regular basis in those big tuberware containers (like what you'd store Christmas decorations in) so I know what you mean. They're stacked nicely in a spare bedroom, but still there's a lot there that I either need to just give away to family and friends or try to sell it off at deep discounts at work while making GWP's out of unused GWP's with purchase Smiley Very Happy. Good luck with the move!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I cashed in my points (was building an order to use anyway with the 20% off), and only spent $1.50 out of pocket! I really didn’t need any more sample size products, but earned the GWP anyway and the random sampler that was surprisingly still in stock!

Re: Ulta GWPs


I'm guessing an hoping that this will be a 20% where if you use it early, you get a second one next week; that happened with this one last year, and seems to happen with most of the ones that last more than just a few days. I think I'm going to go ahead an bite with a small order and hope that another q comes around, and hedge my bet that we hopefully get a better gwp next week 😁

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown I had the same thought as well. This GWP doesn't make me want to put together an order just to get the gift. I have 3 things in my cart that may go OOS which was my original concern, but since I've thought about it if 2 of them go then I'm okay how that - no real FOMO kicking myself scenario. I think I'm going to wait especially since I'm cashing in points. You never know they may have one of those late night GWP's one day this week too.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@donnainca Thanks!  I've been wondering where they were.  Not seeing it on the main page but I'll keep looking.

Re: Ulta GWPs

someone in another group told me to keep am eye out Friday for another gwp

Re: Ulta GWPs


Just for future reference, how to find a BB (or any gwp really) once it's live but before it's featured on the front page:


1. If you have the app, and it's using a new pimprod, it'll show up on the new arrivals page (they don't show on the new arrivals page on the website though, for some reason, and if they are recycling product IDs, like they did with the mystery bags on Friday, they won't show here)


2. Search "online only" if that's the brand (like these), and sort by new arrivals. Should be at/near the top


3. Search "beauty break" if it's a BB


4. If all else fails, search "gwp".



Re: Ulta GWPs


Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown I've been searching "beauty break" the last couple of weeks and nothing is showing up.  It will show me "beauty bakerie" items.  The beauty breaks have been coming in later and later.  I wonder what's up with that.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I won’t be using my 20% so enjoy! Please comment when used.

Re: Ulta GWPs

My #4 was a little different. The System hair mask was swapped out for a Joico one and the Alterna CC was swapped out for a 3 oz. Deva Curl Styling cream. I'm thrilled.
