Birchbox Points: What did or will you buy?

Recommended Posts

Thank you Ladies! I decided to get the Caudalie Winter Duo AND 2 different Tocca hand creams and a body lotion. Also got some tea she loves. Bye Bye beautiful BB points but it's well worth it if her poor dry hands get some relief! I ended up only spending $6.63 out of pocket.

What a great gift! I think she will just love it. What scents of Tocca did you select? I've found that every one I've tried is something I'd buy again, which says  a lot for the quality.

 

And by the way, you ladies have totally enabled me :D I am going to pick up some Caudalie now because ... never enough awesome hand lotion!

So, since I somehow haven't encountered this OOS issue before... how long do things normally take to come back into stock? I'm itching for that Chuao sampler, and I want to order the snow globe kit as a Christmas present. Argh!

I ordered the Modern Mermaid box yesterday, with a pick two, the total came to about $5 with tax after my points and the Black Friday discount. I've wanted that box since it came out, but couldn't justify the price. I hope I get a good pick 2, it seems like every time I order something I get the crappy leftovers.

A couple years ago, it seemed like it usually took forever. But now it seems like they are getting items back in stock within a month or so. Lately, I've received email notifications within a month for the last 5 or 6 items I set to be notified about when they came back in stock.

It looks like their 25% off is still valid for today.... :D

I have lots of points saved up so I was thinking to get the clarisonic. But I'm debating between the mia 2 and the aria. I wonder if the "powerful" mode is worth the extra money.

Does anyone have any suggestions about that?

Also, has anyone that's bought it from birchbox have any problems registering the device? Are they an "authorized dealer"?

@@amyd1259 - Thank you! Thank You! I selected to be on the waitlist for this but, didn't get any notification. I had already bought one but, needed a few more. I dreaded having to split up one box of pods for 3 stockings.

The last time I went for these, I had a 3 in my cart but, it limited me to 1 after I shopped around a bit. So, I checked out with lightening speed this time!

Edited to add: @@sstich79 ~ Did you see this? I remembered you asked up thread about OOS items.

So glad you were able to pick some up! I knew I wasn't the only one waiting for them :) Yah, I never got the email notification either, just happened to online looking around at the right time haha.

Chocopods came back in stock today so I picked up 3 for stocking stuffers :)

ugh of course they did after I finally broke down and placed my order yesterday figuring they wouldn't come back in stock anytime soon and didn't want to miss out on the 25% off.

ETA: I had ordered 6 of the full sized firecracker ones and order went through. My package came and no chocolates. I emailed them and they wrote back telling me they were out of stock so they will have to credit back my account. How was I able to order if they were out of stock and why did I have to ASK about it rather than they tell me before my order even shipped out. I wonder if I never said anything about my chocolates missing if they would have even mentioned it and refunded my money and points?

Could all of you that add your name to be notified of out of stock stuff but never get the notifications please drop a line to Birchbox? I've been complaining of this to them for awhile but I think they think it is only MY issue, at least they kind of imply that it is. I'd love for them to fix it because I get tired of having to keep checking back on things.

Yay chocolate! Thanks for the heads up, @kookymama. The email notifications don't seem to be working for me either, as a couple of the things I'd flagged to be notified about are now back in stock. Fail!

I did end up getting the email about the chocolate being back in stock.   It wasn't immediate but, happy to see its working.

Decided to get the Amika Blow on the Go Set, Mystery pack, and used the code FRENDS for the Ella Headphones in Gold. Used my $140 worth of points so my out of pocket total was only $2.

I can't seem to save my points, lol. I've picked up in the last two weeks the CR Eyeliner pack in metallic plum and rose gold, and the three pack of CR lip stains because I didn't get Dahila in my box!

 

I've got another order of my favorite products from my other account...Beauty Protector Spray, Bombshell Blowout Spray, and a full size of the CR Dahila. That burgundy/purple color is perfect for my blonde hair and pale skin.

I am thinking of using my points to get one of those camille beckman butterfly butters. Since they are $15 i added a pack of Liz Earl cloths. This would make my out of pocket cost $1 plus tax after deducting 20 points. Does this sound like a good idea?

Free Ace Bonus Packs are back withe the "Add to Cart" Button instead of having to use a code. Just checked out (buying some other stuff) with an ace bag, free mystery pack, and using a 20% off code. :)

Naturally, the day AFTER I place an order.  Sigh.

Did you actually buy $75 worth of stuff? I'm not too stoked about this, just because 98% of the Ace packs have the same contents, but I wonder if this glitch bypasses the $75 price point.

I just got a couple of things I've been wanting to try (Becca shimmering skin perfector and The One brush), the mystery sample pack, and the ace pack! I used a 20% off code, 400 points, and $20 in gift cards and paid $12 oop for it all!

I finally pulled the trigger on the big bottle of No. 4 Fleurs de Temps shampoo, and got another bottle of Liz Earle cleanser. Snagged the Ace pack and a pick 2, used my 30 month code and 100 points. Still $57, but I can't complain -- the shampoo itself is $72!

 

I wish my hair didn't love No. 4 products so much :(

Oh, that reminds me -- I bought the Vasanti duo (Brighten Up and the other cleanser) with 300 points, 20% takeoff20 and 6 bucks out of pocket.  I kind of love that Brighten Up!

Just placed a pretty awesome order! Got the Chuao Sampler and the Egyptian Magic 2oz for Christmas presents. Then I got the Laura Geller lip balm, Spornette Holiday Little Wonder brush, and amika Year of Good Hair for myself. I added the Mystery Sample pack and Ace Bonus Pack. With my 16 month anniversary code and 400 points, I paid 10.96 out of pocket. I love late night shopping trips :)

    • I am putting more emphasis on the undereye area. I'm 35 and my skin needs more moisturizing. Twice a day I apply eye serum under eyes, and I never miss this ritual as after several weeks of continuous use I see amazing results: moisturized skin and absolutely no puffiness under eyes. I am using this one from Verneso https://www.amazon.com/s?k=eye+cream&hidden-keywords=B07PPW6J7M&ref=nb_sb_noss_1 Many undereye serums dry out the undereye area and this results in fine lines and wrinkles. Verneso bee venom eye serum contains peptides, vitamins A and E as well as Shea Butter which rejuvenate, tighten and smoothen the undereye area. For me it's the best undereye serum, and I will definetly buy one more bottle during this Amazon Prime Day.
