Birchbox Mystery Bonus Packs & How to Earn Birchbox Points
One of the reasons I love Birchbox so much is that they have a great points/rewards system. Even if I don’t love the box for a particular month, I know I can review the items in the box, and get 10 points per item review. (10 points = 1 dollar, so with each box you should be able to earn 5-6 dollars).
If you are new to reviewing products to earn points, here’s a quick tutorial on how it works:
First, go to view your Birchbox Box for that month, then click on any of the products. Once you are on that product page, click the “Write A Review” link. Once you do that, this screen should pop up:
Fill out your survey and get 10 points! (Make sure to review all the products from your box within the month you received it – you can’t earn points for older months).
Ok, now on to the fun part – spending the points! In the Birchbox Bonus shop, they now have a Mystery Pick Two Pack sample option, and I’ve gotten a little addicted to it!
For every order you spend over $35, you get one Pick Two Sample Pack free with your order. (Just add the one you want to your cart, and they will deduct $10 when your other items are over $35).
Birchbox recently introduced the Mystery Pick option for the Sample Packs, and as someone who has spent way too much on Mystery Boxes, I couldn’t resist. Plus I had Birchbox points to spend, so it was super easy to justify making 3 separate orders!
Here are the three different Mystery Pick Sample Packs I received in my latest three Birchbox orders:
And a quick value break down of each pack:
Nuance Salma Hayek Volumizing Conditioner – 2 oz Value $1.50
DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Serum – .23 oz Value $11.50
Mystery Pack 1 Verdict: Total Value of $13 – not bad, and this serum gets great reviews – excited to try it!
Mythic Oil – 3 ml Value $2?
Alessandro Hand!Spa Cream Rich – 10 ml Value $9
Mystery Pack 2 Verdict: Value of about $11, again not bad at all! And, I’ll use both of these items!
No. 4 Firm Hold Gel – .25 oz Value $1.50
Stila One Step Bronze – FULL SIZE Value $38
Mystery Pack 3 Verdict: Jackpot! I had no idea they were sending out full-size products in these mystery sample packs, but now I just want to buy more!
