BIRCHBOX March 2014 - Spoilers

Recommended Posts

Wait I'm kind of confused on the whole eyeliner thing - is everyone getting an eyeliner (in which case, shouldn't we all get the email with the choice??) or are only certain people getting the eyeliner in their boxes (and that's why they got the email) in which case if you didn't get the email there is no point in calling them etc to let them know?
I'm under the impression that only certain people are receiving the eyeliner. So if you get the email, you'll be getting it in Aprils box.

Right I thought it only went to people who cancelled there accounts as an incentive to resub. I didn't get it though and I have a few accounts which I opened due to promos and closed out :(

The account that I got it on is going to be on it's 17th month in April, I've never canceled it.  So I don't think it's for incentive to resubscribe.  It says in the email too that our credit card numbers have to be valid already, and subscribed or it won't work.

oh that's interesting then. I wonder why some people get it and some don't? I hope that in the future we will have some more choice options :)

I'm assuming it's because not everyone is getting eyeliner in their box...

My guess is they have a limited number of eyeliners to send out, so they probably sent a test batch to see what happened.  I also always get the "add this to your birchbox for $XX dollars!" emails, like the mascara/glass water bottle one this month.  I never want those things though and they're ridiculously expensive.  But I'm down for picking which eyeliner comes in my box (especially since this is the first eyeliner I've ever gotten from them!)

 

On a side note- I picked Silver when I was logged out, logged in and clicked the link again and it re-asked me what I wanted, so I clicked "Surprise me!".  I'll get solid amount of use out of either (if I'm being realistic, I'll use the black so much quicker.) so I figured why not.  I dunno if any other ladies had this happen, and I haven't gotten a follow up email that they said would come.

I thought only people how got the email are getting it. I only got the email on one of my active accounts. But I could be wrong.

About the eyeliner, there IS another eyeliner populating April boxes: Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner.

Woah! Is that one or two boxes?
It's 2 boxes. My 2nd box (ordered on the 10th) used the BBCASE code and got that zip case and my 3rd box (ordered on the 19th) was the other. Only one dupe and it was a good one, and only two dupes with my main box, so I had a good month.

Ok, before I pull the trigger and go ahead and cancel my main (and currently only sub, but maybe not for long eek!), and resubscribe… I just want to confirm that since I went through the wait list before and I'm just resubscribing I won't have to go back on the wait list again, correct? (I mean I know plenty of you ladies just unsub'd and resub'd immediately after--I'm just being a worry wart lol)

 

And the BB100 code is still working for you guys, right?

I got mine today too :) I think the zip case is so cute! Do you think that's why our boxes were delayed? Because they didn't have the cases yet?

I think there's a new code - SFBB100 I believe.  Good till Apr. 15.  You should double check that though.

 

Also a question: if you cancel and then resub later do you go on a waitlist?  Can you refer yourself again (this is my 2nd account) to avoid the waitlist?

So I just cancelled and resubbed again. I have been determined to cancel BB for good, but they keep giving 100 point codes for monthly subs. With reviews, they are paying me to sign up! They carry enough of my HG products, that it saves me money to keep the sub if they keep it up. Doesn't make sense why they are, though!

I think they either didn't have them or misplaced them during the warehouse relocation. It's cute though, I like it.

BB100 didn't work for me last night, but SFBB100 worked this morning. I cancelled and resubbed and I didn't go on a waitlist.

What did it say when it didn't work? Did it say it had expired or ..? I am just about to resub and I put in BB100 and it says

  • "Promo code "BB100" was applied.

It said invalid for me. I tried several times. The other worked though, so no biggie.

I just figured out something that is going to save me SO MUCH TIME.  I wanted to share here, since it's such a busy thread, and I know we all pretty much do trades/shipping anyways.  I know this won't help everyone, and I'm sure it's something most of you are already aware of, but... here goes! 

 

I live in a neighborhood where everyone shares a large and divided mailbox, kind of like they have in apartment complexes, but we all live in houses.  Our outgoing mail slot is SUPER SMALL, and I've never been able to fit anything more than a letter in it, not even a greeting card, so I've always had to drive up to the drop box when I had something to mail out.

 

The other day, I wasn't feeling well, my son was being a terror, and putting him in his car seat and then being enclosed in a vehicle with his defiant three-year-old-going-on-teenager ass to drive the 1/4th mile up to the nearest drop box sounded like actual hell on earth to me.  I had two trades that I wanted/needed to ship out, and I noticed that the mail hadn't run yet.  I'm usually never quick enough to catch the mailman while he's actually at our mailbox (although I have been able to do that once), so I had an idea.  I put a post-it on the packages saying "These are outgoing packages, but they won't fit in the outgoing mail slot.  Will you pretty please take them?  Thank you so much!"  And I put them in my actual mail box pointing out to where he would see the note while he was delivering the mail.  And he totally took them for me!  I've done it two more times since, and everything gets to everyone so much more quickly now.  It seems to skip a bit of a step in processing, plus the products don't sit in that drop bin all day either.  

 

I figured I would give it a try because I know that people with regular mailboxes are able to do that, so why not?  Plus, the packages had tracking on them, so there wasn't a real chance of them going "missing."  Maybe this is common sense for some of you, but I'm hoping there are a few of you out there who never realized you could do this either!  I hope it helps to make your lives easier =)

 

I plan on leaving him a packaged sweet goodie along with a, "Thank you for being awesome, and taking these packages for me.  Here's a sweet treat!" note next time I have something to send along.  I feel like he technically could be a dick about it and refuse to take them.  I know there's plenty of postal workers out there who hate their lives/jobs/the customers (and I totally don't blame them!)

Does the SFBB100 give you the 100 points too?

Last summer they sent out the black and I believe the lime green Sumita contrast liners...hopefully they do purple or blue this time!
