Birchbox November 2015 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

No email yet.  Did anyone get their email?  Also, the link from last month is not working (and it usually does for me).

 

Well this is frustrating... I also referred myself on a separate email to get the beauty blender promotion and it's not showing up that I referred anyone. FIX YOURSELF BIRCHBOX.

I believe they're using a new method this month. The way the video explained it, we log into our accounts, choose the "your box" link at the top, and then "customize your next month's box," (the same method for adding bb plus items and add-ons) and when sample choice is open, we make our choice there. The video did say they will send an email reminding us to do this, which I haven't gotten yet (both accounts are aces).

 

So I don't think the links from previous month's email will update. I did check my accounts via the aforementioned method within the last hour, and it doesn't look like the sample choice selections are open yet.

I did not know this.  Just checked my accounts but still not showing the choice option.  Bummer!

Just talked to customer service (by the way, notice that you can't talk to them on the phone anymore?? The phone recording directs you to the chat or email) and they said we are still getting emails with links and Aces should get theirs by the end of the day today. It is already 3pm PST....very late in the day already.

Are Aces still supposed to get early selection? The reveal video & webpage don't mention Aces at all but only the friend referral.

I was hopeful that the supposed switch to the website link - rather than the email - would really smooth things out but apparently not. I truly do NOT understand why sample selection is consistently such an organizational mess; it makes NO sense.

Ah well...if this were the biggest concern in my life I'd be in great shape! Much easier to obsess about this though than things that really matter.

they would email you with the link in the past months... it is tied to your account (or so I am told)

yes, I was told by CS that Aces are suppose to get their emails of PYS by the end of the day today. They said it WILL be in an email like usual.

 

For some reason they accidentally cancelled my account while I was in chat with them, which now royally screws me for the pYS!!! I am so peeved.

I didn't get an email but the customize my box page finally allowed me to choose a sample. Does anyone know the link to buy the curated box in the shop? Is it for sale? I can't find it and was hoping to buy it as well...

I also was able to pick my sample ~ I went with the curated box on my ACES account as I did open up my 2nd sub to do a PYS item

 

I didn't want to take the chance that they wouldn't allow us to purchase the curated box .  I didn't see any link to purchase the curated box

I made my PYS choice on my account and then added on a necklace (that I thought had shown sold out earlier, but was now available.)  I'm super excited about the LOC shadow stick and I've never done an add-on.

 

Now I just hope I get a confirmation email soon.  November is looking good for Birchbox!

 

EDIT:  Just got my confirmation emails for both the PYS and add-on.  Perfect.

For the past twenty minutes all I got was a spinning B logo. Now it's just back to the video and add on items. How late do they expect me to stay up for this?  :o

I picked the red lipstick on one and impress me eye shadow stick on the other. Now, I wish I picked the curated box since I already have too many red lipsticks as it is.

Spinning B logo is all I've got on either account (one on laptop, the other on iPad). I've a feeling this transition page wasn't quite ready to go live...plus, I've had issues with the site all day. I was trying to browse that 30-40% sale category, and every time after I'd clicked on an individual item page and try to get back to the main sale page I would automatically be logged out.

I picked the curated box on my ACES account and the nude lipstick on my non-aces-referred-myself-yesterday box. Both went through/confirmed on the site even though I didn't get an email with a link. Fingers crossed it all works out!

I got my email just now, however this new way of selecting samples sucks on mobile if you have multiple accounts. The email basically recognizes your first choice not recognizing a different email from a different account.

Still no email over here, I did the referral. Also not showing on the customization page...

 

So is there an option to add on the Glam Life Guru box when you do PYS?

    • Last Wednesday, the night before payday, I began to get interested in doing a project use it up and trying to pay off my debts. It's a never ending life's work I am always trying to accomplish.  Since then I've been developing a new plan for myself. I paid $20.00 on my smallest credit card, which brought the balance down to $100.00. I started using up some foil pack samples that I had already opened.  I came up with a plan to do a snowball plan for my debts. I'm not going to impose a deadline for paying them off. (Will pay the debts off one at a time, from smallest to largest.) At the same time I will have snowball plan for using up my beauty products. I'll organize them based on size in ounces, and use them up one at a time, from smallest to largest. I've started using my foil pack hair masques, cleansers, eye creams. I've got my shower gels and cleansers organized by ounces from smallest to largest. This is fun to do, and it really simplifies things. I'm going to make a workbook for myself.  I'm excited to get into the new plan!  First goal - pay off smallest credit card - $100.00. Use up foil pack hair masque, eye cream, cleanser, scrub, shower gel, eye masque. 
    • I love that many of the fragrances here have an imposing character of their own, yet undoubtedly bring out the best in a woman, and still hypnotize the majority of men around every single time!
    • just visited ur blog! keep up the good writing! we need more authentic beauty bloggers rather than just instagram photos.
    • I love camping a lot! i camp on the great outdoor to relax and chill whenever i had too much work stress. (which is quite common)
    • whats that? A beauty?
