She said they are going to 'look in to the problem in the warehouse'  and aren't going to send me the right scent of soap because they aren't sure that the problem won't happen again. So they are refunding me for the soap and adding 100 pts...and then 'later' I can reorder the soap if I still want it. She didn't say how much later....just that I can reorder after they have fixed the problem. Not really happy with this solution...this is the first BB order I've had mixed up like this. They are also sending me a return shipping label to send back the incorrect soap. I used the 25% off code that was posted here to make the order, so now I'm guessing the code was wasted because you can only use it once? ETA: I was going to purchase more Shea Terra whipped body creme with the points they just gave me, but I can't put any in my cart even though it shows in stock??

"Thanks for reaching out to Birchbox! I have left you a message about your order. We truly apologize for the mix up. Attached is a return shipping label (it will be a link by my signature) that you can use to send back the incorrect scent. We are having our warehouse look into the issue so I have refunded you for the hand soap and added 100 points, equal to $10, to your account for the trouble.

Have a great day!

Best,

Sarah"

By the way, the Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod's are back in stock. I guess I'll get that :)

Have you tried them yet? I bought a potato chip bar and another one (bread crumbs I think?) in a local market over the weekend. It is taking everything in me not to go back and buy the whole display. It is very, very good chocolate.

Hmm that's really weird, but since they are only $10.50 it's like getting double your money back and you can order two more (if you dare) lol. It sucks you can't get the scent your wanted though. I too loved those soap samples and ordered the Mandarin Vetiver and Ginger Pear and had no problem with receiving those, *however* I also ordered Benta Berry face wash and lotion for the boyfriend and when they arrived the outside of the bottles were covered in brown grease and had old ripped up stickers all over them. It was really weird, I couldn't believe they would send out dirty, grease stained products so I emailed them and they sent me two new ones without requesting the previous ones back. It's so strange that their responses are always different. Maybe since mine was "damaged" they didn't make me send it back, but it was their fault they sent you the wrong soap so you shouldn't have to return that either.

 

 

The flash was whiting out the darkness of the grease, but these are the bottles they sent and you can clearly see a huge brown streak down the one on the left. It was much more obvious in person and actually felt greasy. I couldn't believe someone actually picked those out and wrapped them up and shipped them out like that. Oh well they fixed it quickly.

I actually have not tried them yet, but I've seen so many good reviews that I'm curious now! And I love chocolate icon_cheesygrin.gif

Yeah, I've never been asked to return something that was sent by mistake..usually it's reissued.

Thank you for telling me this! biggrin.gif I just bought a box before they sold out again (they probably will eventually).  They didn't have them at my local whole foods and I didn't want to pay $14 in regular shipping costs during cyber monday on the chuao site yesterday frown.gif

Thank you! I bought four.. My step dad/in-laws/dad/BIL are sooo hard to shop for plus I'm on a budget.. I am giving them one of these and a family picture. I think it will be a fun addition, great conversation gift.

The warehouse seems to be all kinds of messed up!  I had two completely different orders on separate accounts that had problems.  In one, they sent the wrong hair pins.  In the other, I ordered two different nail polishes, and they sent two of the same one.  I had planned ahead and made sure to use only points for these orders, so in the first instance, the hair pins I wanted are apparently now out of stock, so I was refunded the points and was then given an additional hundred points.  In the second instance, I was given a hundred points, and when I asked if I needed to reorder (I really want that polish!), I was told that they're still looking into it at the warehouse level to figure out whether they can send me the correct polish or if they will have to refund the points.  In both cases, I have to send the stuff back, but they sent prepaid labels, and I get bubble envelopes for really cheap (a case of 250 for $39, which works out to less than a quarter per envelope), so it's just annoying to not have the pretty goodies!  But they *did* basically give me twenty bucks, so I'll downgrade from "annoyed" to "bummed."

I also received the wrong hair pins! I just emailed them about it. I wanted the Brushstroke print and they sent me the darling bud ones! I like the wrong ones they sent me, but I lovedddd the ones I ordered and didn't get. But something is definitely up at the warehouse...

Heeey, I ordered the Buds pins because those are much more my style and got the Brushstrokes ones!  Damn, I wish we could just send them to each other, but BB is already expecting them back.  :(  It looks like they have the wrong SKUs on the packages, which leads to order picking errors at the warehouse.  The SKU on the package matches the SKU on the packing list, but the description doesn't match the pins.

gahhh that's annoying. i really liked those pins too! they were really sturdy compared to those cheap bobby pins! hopefully BB will get them back in stock & we will get the colors we want! They haven't emailed me back yet, but if I get the 100 points like you I would be really happy with it. I can't say no to a free $10!

It's super moisturizing, I have dry skin on my hands due to excessive use of hand sanitizer and hand washing. I'm a student nurse! This rescues my cracked, painful skin every time I apply it. All of sudden it rejuvenates it after I slab it on and rub it in.

Yay! Finally!!! I just grabbed some. =)

Also, my mom got the welcome box someone mentioned either in this thread or the December one (with the Harvey Prince perfume, Color Club nail polish, etc). It was missing the OLO sample as well but she was able to get 100 points credited to her account! <3 BB

 

She'll get to try it soon enough though! One of the presents I'm getting her for Christmas will be a full size OLO Aromatic Body Serum from the BB shop!

post #2239 of 2328
I'm supposed to be getting a welcome box for a second account that I opened up. Did she get the box today out of curiousity? I received an email sat saying it was shipped but no tracking number.

She got that welcome box last week and just got the email from BB CS today about the points being added to her account. You might get a different one. There are so many good products for BB to choose from. I hope you get a great box!

post #2241 of 2328
Thanks : ). I really don't need more samples but I had 300 points and decided a second BB would be a great way to spend the extra points. I had no idea until I read in a post that you could use your points toward subscriptions.

Nice! I was also so happy to learn that you could get subscriptions with points! That's what 300 of my points went to as well!

Update on my MIA box: It took a while for them to respond but they finally did. My box from my second account never showed up even though it showed as delivered on the 17th. They didn't have anymore of the boxes to send so they comped me December. I cannot complain tbh. Although I was getting the "punishment box" lol, I was looking forward to the Stila Luminizer & the OLO serum. But hey, it is what it is. :)

Because them sending it to her (seemingly to show to us) is like saying "this is what you will get" and I hope that's what they meant b/c I was going to buy the OLO serum with my points until I saw getting that gift box would be more efficient use of the same points. 

 

Those aren't supposed to start shipping until the 28th, though - so maybe I'm mixing things up.

Well, I got the gift notification today on the sub I sent myself after Zadi's post, so here's hoping this will end up as expected. :)

post #2245 of 2328

Mhh, mhh... interesting stuff. So, I was one of the people who got the message about my box shipping super late and getting 100 points compensation. I was getting box 20, which contained the following:

 

  1. Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Petite Cologne Absolue
  2. Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod
  3. Lulu Organics® Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder
  4. Miracle Skin Transformer™ Vanish Instant Imperfection Corrector
  5. ModelCo FIBRE LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara

 

I just looked at my box again - it's been a while - and the box picture is blank again (despite having been updated), and under the contents, the Miracle Skin Transformer's been replaced with a LUSH Cupcake bath bomb. Interesting. I don't really mind, though, as I got items 1, 2, and the original 4 on my main  account, and I've gotten the hair powder in a previous box on my main. Whereas I was only going to have one completely new item (the Mascara), I'll now have two new items!

 

Really, as long as I still get the mascara, I'm fine. Crossing my fingers I don't lose that, too!

Crossing my fingers for you, too. The mascara is one of my favorite things in a while!

post #2247 of 2328

After reading all the posts about items getting switched out of the late November boxes, I thought I'd check mine too.  Apparently, they took out the RMS serum (not broken hearted about that at all) and gave me the TAY Essential Oils Bar soap in Almond Silk.  I'm ok with that!  Wouldn't be mad if they swapped out my Soy Joy either, but whatevs!  

 

Not surprisingly, it has not shipped yet.

post #2248 of 2328

My box has just shipped. The projected delivery date is December 3rd. icon_sad.gif They gave me the 100 extra points, so that is pretty awesome of them. Hopefully December will ship on time. I won't be home for the holidays, so hopefully it will arrive before Dec. 20th!!

post #2249 of 2328

I am actually a little jealous of all of you getting all these points!  I wouldn't mind the wait if that meant $10 off something from the shop.  

post #2250 of 2328

So I just got an email from birchbox they gave me 100 free points because my birchbox was so deleyed :D but the only thing is i got my birchbox already and they are saying that it didnt get shipped till the 20th...... but i got it on the 23th. should i say something or just take the points? the other thing was i didnt get a welcome box (kind of glad i didnt the box i did get was much better)
