Annual Upgrade Offer?

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 

Did anyone else get the email about upgrading to an annual subscription? They offered me 110 extra points a special "bonus" box using a promocode... so I decided to go ahead and do it as I've been a monthly subscriber for almost a year.

 

Hope I don't regret it, haha.

it looks like the code could be used by anyone. Here's what the email says..

 

Thank you for being such a loyal Birchbox customer. To get the most out of your monthly deliveries, why not upgrade to an annual subscription? You'll score one free box per year and 110 Birchbox Points just for signing up. And if you upgrade by February 29th, we’ll gift you an extra-pink Birchbox with a special little surprise, plus you'll get 100 BONUS Birchbox Points*. To complete your upgrade, just enter code ‘upgrade100annual’ at checkout. Happy sampling!

 

So I guess its 100 bonus points, not 110. Whatever, all the same to me haha.

I think its saying 110 point for signing up, plus the 100 points, so 210 points

Jealous! I already have an annual subscription so obviously they wouldn't send me that, but those points will be super useful! 

post #7 of 56

Cool! Will they charge on the 1st or now?

post #8 of 56

They will charge you right now, if I remember correctly.

post #9 of 56

I super wish they'd offer that to me! 

post #10 of 56

I just upgraded using that code and I got 210 points.

 

By "scoring" a free box I think they mean because $110 is only 11 boxes if you go monthly so you're getting the 12th for free.

 

I am confused by the "extra pink" box however. Is this going to be the pink box they have on your 13th month which doesn't seem to be anything special as in a surprise or is this going to be something different.

I'm confused by that as well. I'm hoping it's an extra extra freebie, because that would be awesome. But we'll find out! 

I signed up using the link, THANK YOU so so much for sharing it, OP. Seriously appreciate it. I was toying with joining for a year and that was the icing on the cake so to speak. I feel kind of guilty splurging on that subscription for myself like that,but I think this is my last sign up for a subscription service, and I might cancel some others just to pay for this one. 

The really silly part is, I've never even gotten a single Birchbox before! This is my first month. 

But I guess I'll find out if I like it or not lol.

Just keep an open mind and know that not every month will be perfect and you will LOVE it.

=] I think it'll be good! It's fun to get mail and I'm looking forward to that for sure. I'm excited.

Does anyone know if you get the 20 percent off discount in the store for your 3, 6, 9, 12 month anniversaries if you do the annual subscription? Or are those coupons just for monthly subscriber?  I might wait until after my 3 month so I can get the 20 percent off of a purchase, then upgrade to a year... Just checked and the code still works

I think the code only works until 2/29 and that the 20% off is for the BB store.

post #16 of 56
Wahh, I wish I got paid before the 29th! This sounds awesome, I wish I could do it.
post #17 of 56

I used the code and it let me use my current points on the order so I only ended up paying $80 for the annual membership. I like that deal! Thanks for sharing the info.

Wow, that is a great deal! Plus you got 210 more points? 

post #19 of 56

I got 180 since my order was $80 instead of $110. Still an excellent deal I say.

Definitely! I'm already annual otherwise I'd be right there with you. :) 

post #21 of 56

Yay thanks for posting this! I upgraded to the annual membership and immediately was credited the 210 points.

post #22 of 56

I'm going to do this in March if the promo code still works then otherwise I'll wait until my 12th month.

post #23 of 56



I was thinking the same thing :)

I tried to use it but since my first box hasn't shipped yet it said the code was not valid. Hopefully they will make a similar offer in the future.

post #26 of 56

I used this today. I paid $100 and got 200 points immediately! So excited.

 

although im going to contact customer service since I finished my gift subscription this past month and just signed up for monthly for march. So I was already charged for march. hrm..

post #27 of 56

They charge you immediately when you sign up. Since you just had to sign up on your own that's probably what they were doing.

post #28 of 56

yeah. i figure this is a non-normal situation, so Im sure they will be able to set my account right. Gah. I think this was a pretty sweet deal. I barely skimmed the email since I never read emails and only realized how good it was when I saw this!

post #29 of 56

I caved in. Saving $10 AND getting $20 back was too big to pass up. It's like getting 3 boxes for free... this better be worth it.

That's weird! My first box didn't ship yet and it let me use it. I wonder if that was a glitch? 

But since they charged me $10 for the box, and then the full price of the year, I basically paid for 12 months with no discount. so I'm not sure how that's going to work out box wise.
