Ulta GWPs

This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only.  Share ulta promos 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




Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and 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) /ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12345678.  Replace the 8 digit product id of the item you want to see with the sample id.

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.

I have a hard time believing that all three of those bags went OOS by 6:30 am EST. 

And that was right around the time when the 20% emails went out? Nah, that was no coincidence. Ulta pulled those bags.  

Re: Ulta GWPs

Ooh, definitely interested in trying out that wakse! Looks promising. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Ulta GWPs

I was able to snag the Nonstock Rock Beauty gwp bag on the 10th.  That was a really nice bag.  The ABH Liquid Glow in Perla that was included is really pretty.  That was a $25 freebie!

Did the bags reappear and was anyone else able to get one?

@Ispend2much6 how the f$#& did u manage that?! I have been obsessed with trying to get that thing and it wont add to my cart right! I add it, have 65$ worth of non sale items and it still will not drop into my free with purchase part! I'm about to give up and spend my 20%! one more day I'll give it.....ha!

@ispend2much6 I know I know... but they are still in my f...

@Ispend2much6 I know I know... but they are still in my favs. it's odd but they are. i hope they bring them back as free! i could buy one if i really want to but i dont want it that bad. lol! I'm glad to hear someone was actually able to nab one! i always stay up until midnight to see what drops! I'm a total nut that way! haha!

@MelBeez   I don't think they're available now.  I was able to put a bag in my order about a week ago.  I was online in the early a.m. hours and put an order in right away.

I checked throughout the day frequently, never saw them come back. Kicking myself hard too because there were so many things I actually wanted to try in the Electronic pop bag and I had my cart set just after midnight but waited until morning. I didn't imagine that one would go quick. I'm pretty disappointed it's even possible to see gwp bags disappear before the morning email even hit my inbox.

Re: I checked throughout the day frequently, never saw them c...

@alexalicious   That does seem really odd.  I wonder if it was a mistake and they will be back later.  I'm sorry you didn't get one.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I didn't receive a 20% off coupon.😳


I guess I'll be shopping at Sephora this month.  I see how it is, Ulta.


Seriously though, I've been checking my emails, looking in the spam folder and trash in case I accidentally deleted it, but no luck.  I didn't get 20%, or 15%.  I got nothing.

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

The 20% was sent out to select diamond level members and the 15% was sent out to other select members. Normally, they send these coupons out in waves or at different times of the year for each person.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Sorry they didn't send you a coupon, @itscarin! I believe I have called Ulta once this whole time -- i really hate calling too. I usually get everything resolved by email, so send them an email, they might send you a coupon code.

RE: Re: Ulta GWPs

I didn’t get anything either, it’s really crappy that they’ve ignored their best customers. I think the only way this will be fixed is if no one uses any coupons and they notice that profits this month are down. If not, they won’t notice and won’t care.

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'll PM you mine, I'm not using it, bought too much during 21 days!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ChristinacoThank you so much for offering yours up!  I really appreciate it!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

My pleasure!!😊

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin You can try contacting their CS or messaging them on Twitter and include your rewards number!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@itscarin   I had to call, but I got one.

Re: Ulta GWPs

@Ispend2much6I've had to call so much cs lines lately.  DC tax dept still owes me money and I haven't gotten around to asking them what happened yet.  Too many things on the to-do list sometimes!  I wish I could hire someone to do all the boring administrative things for me.  Why hasn't someone made an app for this yet?  I need someone to stand in line for me at the DMV.  I need someone to scan a bunch of paperwork for me and send it to a bank.  I need someone else to figure out the marriage license situation for me.  The list goes on.  I know it's called "being an adult" but I really wish I could pay someone else to do it for me!  LOL

Re: Ulta GWPs

I'm glad that DC tax dept owes you instead of the other way around; then you wouldn't have to call them, they'd be contacting you. lol

You do  have a lot on your plate. Business aren't set up to be conducive to help working people get their stuff done.

I can't image what the DC DMV is like.  I know that DC is it's own little entity, but could you possibly go to one a little farther out in the VA or MD suburbs?  Even with the drive, I wonder if it would still be quicker!  We do that in our little corner of VA.

Here's your chance to become an entrepreneur! Smiley Wink

I'm a little concerned about the marriage license situation you mentioned...


Re: Ulta GWPs

@Ispend2much6 DC DMV is not bad at all if you catch it at the right time.  I like the one on Rhode Island because there's a Dunkin Donuts and a Smoothie shop near by, so you can go get your ticket, walk around an amuse yourself outside while you kill time before you have to actually wait.  


I think I like the DC DMV's better than the VA ones.  Even the other one in Georgetown is next to a bunch of shops so you can go poke around if the wait is long.  I've had pretty good experiences with the DC DMVs.  No complaints here about them.   The other states don't handle DC DMV things though.  DC is its own state...without representation.  Smiley Very Happy


But yeah, lots of things on my to-do list.  SMH.

Re: Ulta GWPs

That's nice that DC has good DMV's.

I was in Rhode Island once.  We were at CT and drove over the border to a famous sub shop. Smiley Happy

I get it about life's details; there are so many to deal with, it gets frustrating.
