Birchbox: December 2012 - Page 49

post #1441 of 2321

looks like box #6 for me, though my estimated delivery date was today and the tracking has not updated since the 5th

post #1442 of 2321

I need to stop reading the complaints on Instagram. The immaturity runs rampant there. I think it's odd that my account page has the little December truck by it, but there's no corresponding link, and my page is still set to November's box. Like they haven't made up their mind yet what they're going to send me.

I'm getting box 12. Nothing I'm excited about but I'll probably at least try everything.

(seems like it will go with the No 4 Shampoo I'm getting in a box this month well)
29.99 used 300 points perfectly! 

Thanks to the people who posted that code smile.gif 
Did u get to use both the rtr code and get the sample pack for free??

but for any of you who are as obsessed with sephora as i am, and recieved that $15 gift card if you spend $50.... if you use it online you don't have to spend $50!

I mean you'll have to pay for the shipping, but I just got a $24 nars velvet matte lip pencil for $16! 

todays the last day to use them!

Thank you! I bought the UD Smoked eye pencil set, which is on the free holiday shipping list, so free shipping + $15 off YAY! Much easier to justify not having to meet $50 haha!!

As for the BB, I am at .5840 - just got tracking. Box doesn't show on my page, though. While I have theBalm products already, I wouldn't mind getting them in super cute tiny portable size. Also....need chocolate!

The thing is that the lifestyle item is the same item as one of the deluxe samples in this box, but in a foil packet, so it's only listed once on the site because it comes in different variations (color/smell/taste/etc. don't want to giveaway a spoiler so i'm just listing all possibilities :P). ergo, you can only leave feedback once.

 

usually though, yes, we do get points and can leave feedback.

Still no update.  Honestly...getting a little ridiculous.  I'm thinking I might go back through and see what numbers of boxes people have gotten and see if I can narrow it down from there....or maybe not....sounds like a lot of work.  LOL

They post cute stuff but people always make completely unrelated complaints which it makes it so annoying. I don't know why folks can't save it for their Facebook wall/email/phone calls.

PM me if you do . or if i do will let you know.... i get my box on the 15th it says...  ty!

post #1464 of 2321

Well, I DID go through...wasn't as time consuming as I thought.  I've further narrowed down the boxes that I could receive as I haven't seen anyone post that they're getting:  7, 13, 15, 24, or 29.  

 

I WISH they would go on and update already.  pedro.gif

Heck Yes! 

It looks like it is not a one time use coupon! can be used as many times as you want. Which is good, because I may want to order some other stuff, but it takes me a while to make the perfect cart to use exactly the right amount of points :D I knew I wanted the Benefit, and just fiddled with it to keep it at 30 with the 10 off :) Turns out the Zoya polish remover made it perfect :D 29.99! for freee.

Thread Starter 

My tracking came but still no clue to what box I'm getting. I'm so ready to be spoiled! LOL

Thanks for the BB code! I totally caved and preordered the Juice CC cream with points. I have been eagerly awaiting that anyway. Had to get a candle too so I didn't waste points (damn tax) but I figure if I totally hate the Juice product I can always return it. With the code it was like getting the candle free anyway. Guess it will be my post-holiday gift.

Good thing I had an amazing Secret Santa who gave me a bunch of fun new things to keep trying between now and then. She doesn't even know me but I think she might have shopped for me with a higher percentage of success than I sometimes do. For example she sent me a fragrance I would probably never have even looked at (it is from Victoria's Secret of all places)that turns out to be wonderful, long lasting, and relatively inexpensive. Go figure!

Birchbox is the same for me (fun new things to try) but I just can't have an overly high expectation of success. I get to try fun new things and be pleasantly surprised when I love one. Like I would never have bought the Amika mask for myself, but I do look forward to trying it. I do pay $10 for BB so it's not exactly a gift but for me it's still fun.

wooo I had 40 bucks saved in points too. I got the amika go-go travel dryer/iron set and sample pack for 35 bucks! merry christmas to me lol.

Yes I'm definitely annoyed us Box 3ers will only get 40pts from reviews this month, in addition to getting a relatively low value box from what I can tell (at least compared to others).  Oh well, win some/lose some.  I just bought my sister a year-long sub for Xmas so the 110 pts deposited in my account helped soften the blow  happy.gif
