What does everyone think of the new upgraded Birchbox Subscription Option?

~Monthly Category Choice
Select a product category you’d like to receive a sample from in your next box and/or a product category you’d like to exclude (i.e. “Send me a cleanser this month, skip the shampoo!”). The samples themselves will still be a surprise!
~Beauty Fix-It Boxes
Choose from a selection of curated boxes filled with samples that address specific beauty needs (i.e. acne-prone skin or frizzy hair). Try out something you’ve had your eye on—or give a new trend a go! You can opt to receive one of these boxes instead of your personalized box.
~Swap for Points
Opt to receive Birchbox Points in place of your Birchbox for that month. We’ll add your Points (matching the value of your monthly subscription payment) into your account on the 1st of the month.
~Exclusive Shop Discounts
As part of the premium subscription you will get a discount on the full size versions of the samples you receive so you can save on new and familiar favorites.
~Fast track to ACE status
Your monthly subscription counts towards your dollars spent towards ACE status, so you’ll get there quicker with a premium subscription.

Interesting! Thanks for sharing! Where was this posted, just on their site? I just cancelled my Annual sub because I'm not happy with the quality of the boxes anymore. I'm tired of seeing the same brands promoted all the time. But the premium options are really tempting.

I signed up ( on my phone it was $14, but when I clicked on via my laptop it was $18). I like exchanging a box for points, not as good as it was with the reviews but better than nothing!

Same here. I decided to go for the $14 and see how it is for the first month.

Apparently Birchbox is beta testing the "upgrade" options. Here is some more info: http://www.refinery2...ubscription-box

I signed up.

Thanks for the link @Bizgirlva! I signed up too!

 

Here is more info about it from their site:

 

Birchbox Select

Beta
 
New customization options explained
Pick One, Skip One

Pick a sample type you’d like to receive and/or exclude from your upcoming box (i.e. "Send me a facial toner this month, skip the mascara!"). The products themselves will still be a surprise, and your options will change every month.

Fix-It Boxes

Want to know exactly what’s coming? Swap your personalized box for one of several curated boxes filled with samples that address specific beauty needs (i.e. frizzy hair or oily skin). Try out something you’ve had your eye on—or give a new trend a go! These options will change every month.

Swap for Points

Instead of receiving your next Birchbox, get 150 Birchbox Points (150 points = $15). We’ll add your Points into your account on the 1st of the month. Points can be redeemed as payment toward your future Shop orders. You can Swap for Points 4 times within a 12 month period.

Just got an email about adding extra products for your June box for all Beta Select members. If you add products you'll automatically get extra $5 off. Anyone jumping on this? Do you usually add products or no?
