Gah, I joined the 3 box club just a minute ago...just for the extra 100 points.  Somebody tell me that's okay?  And the extra points somehow turned into 200 points.  So ladies, whatever the heck is going on...is still going on!

post #454 of 2868

You bad, bad people.   I did cancel my second sub till all the posts with the 210 points came up.  So technically they paid me to get keep my second sub at least for another month.

Is it HORRIBLE that I'm wondering if I can cancel the account I just opened and get another 200 points? 

I'm not going to, because I feel like that's reaaaally taking advantage of the glitch but I can't help but be curious :) 

post #459 of 2868

I'm not convinced it's a glitch -- a friend signed up with my referral link last night, but forgot to enter the code.  She e-mailed CS, and they gave her the 200 points.

I tried it. It worked. I don't feel bad about it considering I hadn't used the code on my main account because I wasn't aware that we'd be able to. Yay for extra points.

Well you can only use promo codes once per account, right? So I think it may not work, unfortunately.

Ohh that's true! Didn't think of that. 

I'm just happy with the 200 points I already got! :) Just placed an order with my anniversary code and it came out FREE with those points.

Yes, yes you can!  tthats what i just did....

post #464 of 2868

just cancelled my main sub (my annual sub ended in december, did monthly for jan) and then resub'd in the same minute using USWEEKLY100. I feel kinda guilty since I just got 450 birchbox points today (2 subs + a referral)

Stop feeling guilty & buy yourself something pretty! :D

post #466 of 2868
So I just subbed yesterday and am tempted to refer myself for a second box but do I really need it? I would wind up with 460 total points if I got a second sub.... Decisions. Decisions.

Thats exactly what I did on my main sub. I only got the 100 points on my second sub, but I did get a referral yesterday, so that's 350 points, only 100 of them are ever so slightly sketchy. Honestly I think they would have noticed/stopped it by now if they thought it was that big of a deal. They give away 100 points whenever someone coughs, so I don't think they're too worried about it!

I hope this isn't the case but for everyone cancelling their subscription and resubbing I think that its possible that you may receive a product you've received before.  I remember in the past I cancelled an account and then reactivated later and I received an item I had gotten in a previous Birchbox.  CS told me that because I had cancelled they couldn't do anything for me.

oh! that's good to know. i don't mind if that happens since I can take my 1300 points and buy myself somethin' pretty :)

...unless they send me more beauty protect shampoo and conditioner then i'd be pissed. or that kms hair spray. or anything else hair related that isn't a bobby pin or those headbands.

post #470 of 2868

I can't even believe I'm considering signing up for a 3rd subscription! I'm only hesitant because I really don't want to pay $20 for both a Jan box and a February box on that new account. Just $10 would be fine, but $20 breaks my budget. Theoretically, when signing up with the USweekly code, I'd pay $10 today for the January box and then get charged $10 again tomorrow for the Feb collab box? Is that right?

I'm not exactly sure if they're still doing that, but either way, you can review the products in your January box to get 50 points, and you'll get 10 for signing up, and 200 for the USWEEKLY100 code, so you'll end up with 260 points before February's box even gets to you! :)

I think it's too late for a January box. Usually the cutoff is around the 15th of the month!

Unless they changed something recently...

1300 points, niiiiice I've been sitting on my points for a while because I keep thinking once I spend them some awesome limited edition box is going to pop up.  I just wanted to throw it out there because I can imagine what this thread would look like if everyone started getting repeats and complaining to customer service.  

 

on another note, does anyone know when MOBILE20 expires?

Ohhhhhhhh my godddd... it is such a good deal. I might have to risk my perfectly balanced budget for this.

From my understanding, people who signed up with the USWeekly code after the 15th of the month have been receiving January boxes the last few days (mentioned earlier in this thread). It is/was part of the promotion that you receive both Jan and Feb.

And while you're at it, you might as well refer yourself and get another 50 points LOL

post #476 of 2868

So add me to the 3 sub club.  For $30 in points (200 for code, 10 for first month, 50 for referral and at least 40 for reviewing the first month's products on the new sub), it will be worth it, even if I end up getting a January and a February box on the new sub.

 

I can't cancel and resubscribe either of my current subs, because I have annuals on both.  And a 4th would really be too many ... wouldn't it?

I used it on the 25th.

It was the first time it worked for me, when people first started discussing it, I attempted and it would not allow me to use it...I don't actually have the app, as I have an Android phone. But some people said they could use it online...Anyways. 

To answer your question, as of January 25, I was able to use the code on the computer.

All these people unsubbing and resubbing  and such makes my head hurt. I think I'm just going to keep my one sub, even though I only got 110 points with the code.

When did you use the code?

post #480 of 2868
Be warned: if you unsubscribe and then resin scribe, your box might be late. I have re subscribed from my second account twice in the past and each time my box shipped after the 10th and my box contents didn't update until several days later.
