Memebox Points

Recommended Posts

I can't help but notice that people are always talking about buying Memeboxes for extremely cheap because of their saved up points. When I first signed up for Memebox I was getting the 3 free points for using referral links for specific boxes, but now that I'm "caught up" and just focusing on new boxes I buy them when they do the $3 off for VIP for a day, then always taking advantage of promo codes/bundles/VIP codes. I read that you used to get free points back for shipping costs, but that no longer seems to be the case. I can't seem to figure out how everyone gets so many points, can those of you that have figured out the Memebox game, please give the rest of us some tips! 

 

(I could really use some discounts to help justifying all of my box buying!)

From my personal experience, I took advantage of the points they were giving away for new accounts, and then using a promo that ended a while ago for 15 points. Once those ran out, I mostly just use the $5 off codes that the bloggers have (you can use 1 per month). 

 

However, a couple weeks ago one of the girls on here mentioned that reviewers can get 3 points per blog/video review/etc, so I started a blog and submitted my reviews to the affiliates team, so I'm earning points that way.

 

Some of the higher-earning affiliates earn points based on their revenues, but I'm not very knowledgeable about that, so someone else can explain that. :)

Oh, that explains it then, so many people on here do seem to have their own blogs. Darn, I was hoping there was something I was missing, that didn't involve that much effort! Well, i know JUST before I signed up they had some amazing deals (i heard about $15 off plus another $10 off coupon), so I hope they start offering something like that again, plus some great VIP deals (I heard about the 15 points).

 

I notice that a lot of people talk about having multiple Memebox accounts, is there a reason for that? And is it allowed?

How do you submit your blog reviews for points to the affiliate team? :D

You email a link of the review to affiliate (at) memebox dot com. Usually takes about a day to have them email you back, but it's 3 points per review.

 

Plus I think you have to join the affiliate program first--click on the link under the login that says Refer Friends Earn Points or something.

Personally I have...5 accounts? Haha. But I only use my main one now. I made a bunch (and I know I'm not the only one!) when the $15 coupon work, and when signing up gave you 10 points to use immediately. The downside to doing that is boxes get spread across accounts, which can get confusing, and you won't make VIP (VIP status is when you order 5+ boxes (separately) within 90 days).

It's commission they earn from the blogs, not just reviews. When readers use their affiliate links, they get however many points for it. I don't know what the system is. Then the people with blogs who are semi-popular get boxes to gives away in a "contest" which really just gets random people to subscribe to their twitter/instagram/etc. It's mostly a system for promoting memebox and giving them followers who follow for no reason other than to enter the contest and get free stuff. If you want VIP status, you have to buy 5 boxes on 1 account = @$100+ and you have to maintain this to keep status. So spend money constantly and you occasionally get a discount.

 

tl;dr memebox provides you with followers and in turn you get points.

I JUST missed that $15 off coupon, and was kicking myself for it. I hope they do something like that again, and if they do it's nice to know that multiple accounts can be made. I'm surprised Memebox hasn't caught onto people doing that and done something about it. I do have VIP status on my account, but since I've ordered so many boxes since signing up, it wouldn't hurt at all to spread them out a bit to take advantage of any great coupons that come up again. Do people on this forum tend to alert others of those coupons, or do I need to follow Memebox on Facebook or something?

 

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much! 

I found out by reading these forums. :) The lovely people here are great about alerting others for deals!

 

I also got lucky about 3 weeks ago, they gave out 15 points on new accounts that hadn't had any purchases yet. I still had an account I'd opened just after the "sign up and get 10 points!" period, so I never used it, and got the random 15 points. They went fast, haha! But now I'm out of email addresses! :P

 

I wondered if they discontinued the 15 point coupon because so many people were using it...I know a few of us on here were making new accounts, for sure. Heh. I also follow Memebox on Facebook, that's how I saw the CuteBox #1 was briefly back in stock earlier tonight. Sometimes they announce stuff on there before we catch on here.

Thank you! I just opened a few more accounts (and got 2 points instead of the 3 that I got under my main account, looks like I JUST missed out on that!) With the ability to reuse the $5 off coupons, that's enough to basically get free shipping on a few boxes, if I see more I want this month. Gosh, Memebox really is addiction. 

 

I bought a few of the restocks last night, and they just kept adding them, I woke up to find that I missed out on a couple that I had hoping would show up. The restocks really do sell like crazy, Memebox will definitely be keeping me on my toes.

 

I really hope they do another coupon similar to the $15 off (or the $10 off one), that would definitely make it a lot easier to justify my Memebox spending.

Memebox randomly gives out points.  They're giving out some right now, it looks like, too.

 

It's not super consistent either.

 

So USA people got 3 points yesterday.  Now they're handing out 5 "miss you" points.

 

Last month, VIP's got 15 (!!!) points which was amazing!  

 

Everyone is hoping they'll do that again.

 

Memebox seems to give points out toward the end of the month so here's hoping we get more!

 

Then Memebox gives points for broken or damaged items, problems, etc...

 

If there's a little more talk about points than usual it's because many bloggers just found out that Memebox gives 3 Memepoints per review so there's been a bunch of buzz about that in the last week or so.

    • You would clean this brush daily like you would any full sized powder brush... using a brush cleaner in a spray bottle and gently wipe with a paper towel, repeat as necessary until no more pigment transfer is visible on the paper towel. <a>Remember to use a proper brush cleaner like MUSST, Parian Spirit, Wipe Out, Cinema Secrets, Ben Nye as these are instant drying brush cleaners.<a> Avoid 99%, as this will make the hairs brittle. Also avoid using Brush-Off brush cleaner, as this brush cleaner leaves a waxy feel to the hairs. Also avoid dipping full sized brushes such as this directly into the above mentioned brush cleaners, as this will take a long time for the bristles to dry like about a couple of hours or so. And it will also soak up a LOT of brush cleaner, about a 1/2 bottle's worth, which will go to waste, including your money. For a more deeper cleansing, (once a week or once every 2 weeks) you would use a gentle shampoo and conditioner. Gently squeeze out any excess water and let air dry. For this style of brush, wrap a piece of paper towel or a small piece of an anti-slip mat around the handle, (to prevent damage to the handle) and wrap a stiff wire around it or use a small spring clamp and hang the brush upside down to air dry. NEVER rest the brush on its' dome or its' side as the weight will create flat spots and split ends. Based on the full-sized bristle area, this brush will take about 1 and-a-half to 2 days to dry at room temperature. Also, NEVER blow dry or use any type of forced air to dry full sized brushes such as this, as this will damage the hairs by making the hair fuzzy (split ends) and overly fluffy, which cannot be repaired by a conditioner as the hairs cannot grow and repair itself. Based on the pics, I can tell that the bristles are soft and supple and grouped together in a nice domed shape, they should not be fluffy, as in the dome shape is distorted or misshapen.   <a> For a gauge, (as a Professional MuA), I use a 500ml bottle of Wipe Out, and sometimes MUSST as my go to brush cleaners. On a TV series a 500ml bottle lasts me about 2-3 weeks. The spray bottle version lasts me about 2 months. This is based on cleaning about 80 or so brushes a day at 5 days a week. For the lay person, a 500ml bottle will last you about 2 months or so and the spray bottle version at least 5 months or so. Just to be clear, it's the same brush cleaner formula in the refill size (500ml) and in the spray bottle option. Any more questions or clarifications please don't hesitate to ask! 😉
    • Hi Cindy, Question 1) Yes, there are, Gels and acrylics. Most if not all productions will have a Nail Tech or MuA apply and remove the acrylics daily, that's in the actors' union contract. Some productions send their actors to a nail salon to get their nails done. Question 2) That question and decision is up to the Director. Remember, film productions understand that cast have to live in the real world too, just like the rest of us, so all those factors you mentioned above have already been taken into consideration months ago in pre-production, and in H/M/W meetings. Good luck and have fun on set in January!
    • Is this a selling party or a an application only party?  If you're holding a selling product party, then I would apply to a make-up company that offers a third-party product reselling service such as Eve Pearl, SeneGence, Avon, etc. Once you've been approved, they send you their entire product line in demonstration form, you do your applications, make your sales, place your orders and so on. Along with the demonstrator products, the company will also include a few products for sale when you do make an on-the-spot-sale so your clients won't go home empty handed. For an application party, typically you gift them a full sized lipstick colour that you've just applied to them. So four ladies are not too bad, since a lipstick runs between $25-$35, so yeah that kind of adds up on a limited budget. At least you're not buying an entire make-up line for each lady. Also as a new MuA, I am guessing you understand about proper product hygiene, using clean brushes for each person, not double-dipping into mascara or foundation bottles etc. Being a clean MuA goes a long way in maintaining your clients.
