Good News!  They are allowing people to pick a 7th sample for the celebration of their one year anniversary- I don't know if it is limited to choosing one of the below mascaras though.  i might skip again this month.. I am not happy about bath and body works still in my selection window.. and I had always regretted buying Avon as soon as my orders would come in..

I just received a 1-year email but it mentioned nothing of the mascara. It just said "it's our birthday and all subscribers will receive a birthday gift this month". Nothing about choosing a 7th sample either.

I'm guessing the 7th sample is one of the mark. mascaras? I would actually be happy about that, I got the Blow Kisses gloss last month, and the mascara will click right into the other end of the plastic hook-up thingy!

 

My selection window isn't til the 9th, so I'm hoping they have a new Whip Hand color by then.  Hoping for a good month w/BA!

I just received the same email. I guess we'll know when our selection window comes up.

 

On that note, I ordered my first BA box December 31st....so my window will be January 31st, right? Does that mean I just have that one day to pick out my samples or opt out of the box, otherwise they'lll pick em out for me instead?

You get a 5 day window to choose samples. The window starts on the day you sign up. If you signed up on the 31st, your window should open on 31st (or 30th?) every month. You would then have until the 4th of each month to pick. You can opt-out in that time period as well. If you don't pick before the 5th, they will pick for you.

Yay!!! Peach Glitter! Yay!!!

 

It's possible I get way too excited about my sub boxes.  Blue Mustang, I found the best (biggest) items under the lowest age bracket... but that was last month.  Good luck!

Mine is not until the 26th, so I am pretty sure everything good will be gone AGAIN. I have skipped all but one month since July. I was a New Year's Day 2012 subscriber- like number 87 or something - and the decline saddens me.

Maybe try emailing them and asking to change your selection window?  I've seen people post on the BA FB wall asking about it, and Nancy-Lee always asks them to email her.  If it's causing you to skip boxes/not buy anything, I bet they'll change it!  Especially as you're one of their founding subscribers.  Worth a try!
