I wouldn't feel bad. The first 5 or so times I went I just sampled, but then we took my boyfriend's parents to the mall (his mom wanted to go to it) during spring break when they were in town and they looved Teavana, so we bought his mom some for Mother's day that year.

 

I keep telling myself that I'll buy their $70 gift set, but then I flake and spend that on stupid crap.

haha yes the blueberry and strawberry mix! Every time Im there I say Im going to buy it, but then I look at the prices and go running. Well carefully since I dont want to knock over their 200 dollar tea pots...

I am a tea lover! In my 15 months of BB I have only received one tea sample which was the Zhena Gypsy which I am in love with.

 

As for points, try to hold out if you can because it is so worth it! I recently hit 700 points ($70) and combined it with my 15 month loyalty coupon (20%) and got a lot of awesome things (just my opinion) that I had been wanting. I paid nothing for this order:

 

Zoya Nail Polish Remover

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads

Juice Beauty Blemish Serum

Tea Forte Cherry Marzipan Tea (All of your amazing reviews convinced me that I had to try it and I love it)

Debra Lippmann Stripper to Go polish pads (Amazing for travel)

 

It is really worth it to try to save the points and combine them with one of your "loyalty" email coupon codes.

I am IN LOVE with Teavana! Their Peachberry Jasmine tea is to die for. Drink it almost everyday, we(my boyfriend and I) have SO many of their teas. The manager at our store knows us and gives us discounts and heads up on sales all the time. i love it :D

 

ps. instead of buying the metal tins they try to sell you there, save glass jars that you get from different food items you eat(ie, pickel jars, jam jars, etc) and when you are done wash it out well and then replace the label with the teas names label and whatnot. Awesome way to save PLUS the teas are so beautiful you get to put them on display in the glass.

 

EDIT: p.p.s how did this go from BB April to Teavana? :p

Unfortunately beauty boxes have been extremely popular within the last couple of months and as such each company will close the the ability to subscribe once they reach their own internal quota. This is what's happened with Beauty Army, Birchbox, MyGlam (which just reopened today), Sample Society and other companies. The items they send out are limited to what the companies they work with send out. For example, say Urban Decay makes 100,000 sample sizes of their eyeliners and let's say they work with four beauty box companies in May. Those 100,000 items would have to be split among the companies they work with and in turn those companies distribute the products to the subscribers. Factor in other products and there is a finite amount of product to go around so instead of leaving customers in the lurch without products the companies close the subscriptions until they have room for new members OR the companies they work with are able to guarantee them more product.

I think she was referring to trying to subscribe to different threads and groups here on Makeuptalk. A message comes up that says subscription failed.

Ahhhh! She's not the first person to say the subscribe button isn't working. It might be a setting in her profile that's not turned on.

LOL!  I love Teavana, too, and I love when BB sends me some tea. :)  I forgot about that Gypsy tea.  I got the sample, ordered a box of it from BB, drank it all, then forgot about it when I ordered a bunch of Bigelow teas. I've got to get some more of the Gypsy tea when I order from BB again.  I should get my 20% off 6 month coupon in April! Thanks for the glass jars idea. Those Teavana canisters are expensive.  My fave Teavana is a ginger blend. I forgot the name and I'm out of it. I'll have to look it up and report back. It is YUMMY!

I finally got invited to BirchBox, and can't wait for my box in April!! I have been giddy since I signed up :) 

post #108 of 2779

mussical.gif April's box is almost here, hahahaha!!!

post #109 of 2779

Maybe you can put it up in the trade thread? You could say you are offering any full sized (up to $60) product on Birchbox.com and have it shipped directly to them. If I saw that I would totally jump on that in a heartbeat.

Oh you can transfer them!? I had no idea. Maybe I will wait out and transfer them to my other account and put that one on yearly too!!

post #113 of 2779


I just transferred mine from my "temporary" monthly account which turned out not to be so temporary, haha. ANYWAY, I-emailed them and literally two minutes later they responded and said they'd been transferred. They show up instantly!

post #114 of 2779

Did you just give them the email addresses for both accounts?

I want to turn my temporary into a year now too LOL

post #115 of 2779

Yep! I e-mailed them from the one I wanted to transfer my points out of and asked them to please transfer them to my other e-mail address (which I listed). 
And yes, I've learned "temporary" accounts are dangerous territory! icon_redface.gif

post #116 of 2779

I just did the live chat and asked if you can use your points to upgrade to a yearly and they said this:

 

The only account type that your Birchbox points can be used for is a gift account.

 

Well that stinks ):

post #117 of 2779

Oh, that's so sad! dong.gif I just switched mine over to my other account because I'm finally closing my "temporary" account. But I do think it's weird that they said you can't use your points to go towards your upgrade to a yearly because on the BB Annual Upgrade Offer thread, other users said they were able to use their points to renew their annual account.

post #118 of 2779

Ummm....that's weird; when I did the annual upgrade, it offered to let me use my stockpiled points to defray the cost.
