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

Anyone else not receive the clinique eye cream code? I'm platinum, and have gotten all the other codes lately, but of course not this one which I really want.


Anyone know if ulta will fix this for me, or if anyone has one they aren't going to use could you PM it to me?

Re: Ulta GWPs

i didn't receive it either. i've noticed that some codes are only sent to some people. :/ it's really annoying, especially when you're platinum and buy a lot of stuff all the time. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@GlitterGlow Let me look back on my emails, I'm sure I got one but decided to use my 20% off code instead. If I find it I'll PM youSmiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

That'd be lovely, thank you!

Re: Ulta GWPs

Q: are the in-store coupon UPCs individualized or universal? I assume people would not post them if they were personal, but just checking. Also, do they only work if you're platinum?

Re: Ulta GWPs

Most coupons are universal - you can tell because it's a shorter barcode, only 12 numbers


Individual ones usually start with a P in the barcode if I remember correctly. It's a longer code.


There are platinum exclusives, meaning you have to be platinum in order to use the discount or receive the gwp. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thanks! Does anyone know if this is a Platinum exclusive or is there any number sequence/letter that indicates? If so, I'll use my sister's. 😛 I'll never reach $450 at ULTA; I'm there for NYX and Shape Tape.

Re: Ulta GWPs

What is the "this" in question? 


That said, the most recent Platinum Perks I can think of were the Benefit bag set and Estee Lauder set last week, and those were online only IIRC. Folks here are good about listing which ones Ulta designates as Platinum Perks. I think you should be fine with any of the current active freebies.



Some of the basic patterns of Ulta q's:


12 digit, all numbers (like it Cosmetics and Clinique samples below): in-store, generic q's, anyone can use, and codes are not unique.


19-20 digit, usually starts with P, mix of letters and numbers for the rest: in-store, unique code. (the free Ulta hand soap coupon has a code like this, which is why no one has posted it here)


10-11 digits, usually starts with 3, mix of letters and numbers for the rest: online, unique code. 


There are other online codes that spell a word or phrase related to the discount or promo; these may be more or less than 11 digits. Examples would be sonagasparian and madeyewlook from recent GWP bag promos, or NYMLOVESULTA (recent coupon for $1 off any Not Your Mother's hair care). These are generic and can be used by anyone (and usually multiple times, though Ulta can and has restricted some codes to where they only work once per account).



Re: Ulta GWPs

So glad the 20% off coupon is finally here! Smiley Happy

If I remember correctly, we can use these once online and once in store is that correct?

Re: Ulta GWPs

It's not working for me this time. I used mine in store yesterday and the online code is saying already used today. Maybe I should have tried immediately after?

Re: Ulta GWPs

@CaityLaine Not always I'm afraid. I tried it with the last 20% off coupon. Used it online for a big shop, tried to use it in store to grab a couple things and it didn't work because I'd already used it. Might be the order used or how quickly it's done between online and in store that would affected, but I don't know. So be wary, it may not work for both.

Re: Ulta GWPs

thank you for the heads up @Kay522


The last time I got one for platinum members I was able to use it both in store and online, but I may have just gotten lucky.  I've heard that happening before though where it doesn't work for both so I thought I'd check.


I'll just plan on making my biggest order online and go into store with stuff that isn't as important to me.


thank you again Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

Does anybody have any idea when the next 20% off coupon will drop?

I really want to cash in 2,000 points, but I feel like any day I'm going to get an email with a 20% off prestige coupon so I've been waiting.  just curious if anyone remembers from last year, thanks. Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

@CaityLaine After this round of 21 days of beauty I believe. There was one last April right around when the Too Faved Peach palette first launchedSmiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

@CaityLaine I just checked my email from last year and there was a one time use 20% off paltnum coupon code issued on the 19th day of the 21 day's of beauty event that was good for about a week.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@PaletteAddict99 @StephaniLynn


thank you both so much Smiley Happy

I'm hoping for the next day or two then.  I have my cart loaded and ready to go haha!  Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

Hey guys! Can someone please send me the spreadsheet? I just got my birthday coupon (so nice of Ulta) and the gift is a deluxe Benefit Porefessional...Ulta's favorite sample Smiley Tongue

Re: Ulta GWPs

I keep trying to but the annoying captcha thing is not letting me Smiley Sad 

Re: Ulta GWPs

What is the deal with the annoying captcha thing anyway?

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'm not sure @AnneMCC! It keeps popping up randomly and then goes away for no reason. I'm going to try to send it again.
