  1. I ordered both boxes and was really impressed with both. I also got the sample pack…and I was underwhelmed. I got a Whish Blueberry shave cream and a Kiehls Rose Artica eye cream. In my mind, I had a assumption that it would be multiple products, similar to a regular Birch Box…not just two products. Oh well, it was free – I shouldn’t complain….

  2. I actually signed back up for Birchbox this month, I had cancelled several months back, I was just having so many issues. I order both boxes plus the monthly box and with the sample back, everything came to only $38. I did not enter a code for the 20% off, but it seems I had to get a big discount so maybe I did receive it. I really missed Birchbox and I hope they do better with their products going forward, I love their boxes so i’m going to give them a second chance so hopefully things will be great this time!! Also, there are so many mixed reviews on the mystery gift, i’m not one to complain especially if something is free, so hopefully it will be nice also.

  3. I ordered both as soon as I saw this post and they have already shipped. Yay! I’m so excited because my Nichole Richie Birchbox has also shipped. I am still waiting for my normal box to ship with my two add on items….I clearly love BIRCHBOX! Lol!

  4. Does anyone know if the coupon code will work on renewing a yearly subscription?


  5. Just paid under $20 for both and a full size hair product I’ve been wanting, free shipping used a code. I love Birchbox. Using one of the boxes for a gift.

  6. I just paid $.68 for both boxes, a mystery sample pack, the Rifle Paper Co birthday card set, and Nexxus Shampoo. Used 50 points.

  7. Ok so I’m just now figuring out I need to ADD the mystery sample pack to my cart, its not a code but an add on lol and of course, I just put in a $50 order last night too, so I emailed customer service and I’m hoping they can still send the mystery pack. I got both special boxes plus the Marcelle mini eyeliner travel kit and hopefully the mystery sample pack. My total was $51.00 and with 20% off, free shipping and $30 in points, I paid $6.80 🙂

  8. Is the free mystery sample pack automatically added to your cart and comes with your boxes or do I have to add it to my cart before check out because I don’t see the option to add a mystery pack???

    • Go to the bonus shop section and you will find it. You add it to your cart.

      • Thank you Misty!!

        • Be aware there are Mystery Sample Packs in both the women’s and men’s bonus shop. I used my phone app to make this purchase where it wasn’t so clear and I accidently selected the Birchbox Man Mystery box. On the desktop version the choices show up better. I decided not to try to change it, so my husband will have a couple of extra sample treats!

          • Also beware that even if you order a women’s mystery sample pack, they will sometimes randomly include men’s items. (If that happens, just e-mail their customer service and they will send a replacement.)

            Because what am I going to do with BEARD OIL?

  9. I ordered both!!! Plus, got a jelly pong pong highlighter, free mystery pack, used my 20% off code, 200 BB points and got it all shipped for $12.60!!!! YAY BB!!

  10. I probably would have ordered the Mass Appeal box if I hadn’t just ordered the $7 Target box, which is now looking like an even more amazing deal.

  11. How quickly do these boxes usually sell out? I want to also get the Coola makeup setting spray with the Mass Appeal box so I can make use of my 20% bday code (for $50+ purchases) and $20 in points, but the Coola spray is waitlisted right now. I don’t want to miss it!

  12. I had $30 of points to use to I decided to use them on this.

    I got:
    Prestige Headliners Beauty Collection
    Mass Appeal Beauty Collection
    Yes To™ Carrots Lip Butter – 2 Pack
    Spend $35, get a free Mystery Sample Pack

    With discount and points I only I had to pay $3.53. Not a bad deal considering I would pay that for the lip butter alone.

  13. I decided to get the Hello Beautiful Collection – All/Combination Includes: Fruit Enzyme Cleanser (0.25 fl. oz.), Fruit Enzyme Scrub (0.25 fl. oz.), Perfect C Serum 17% (0.17 fl. oz.), Fruit Enzyme Mist (0.17 fl. oz.), Pumpkin Renew Cream (0.25 fl. oz.), Sun Shield Unscented SPF 28 (0.25 fl. oz.) free with $35 purchase instead of the 20% off. Total before $30 in birchbox points would have been $35.50.
    Purchased the following:
    Mass Appeal Beauty Collection – $15.00
    Prestige Headliners Beauty Collection – $18.00
    Spend $35, get a free Mystery Sample Pack $10.00
    C.O. Bigelow My Favorite Night Balm$7.50
    Subtotal $50.50
    Shipping & Handling $0.00
    Discount (VIP Free Shipping, CEW Prestige & Mass Boxes Offer, Free MyChelle Hello Beautiful Collection with $35+ Purchase, MYCHELLEHELLO, Free Sample Pack with $35+ Purchase) -$15.00
    300 reward points -$30.00
    Grand Total $5.50

    Thanks Liz!!

    • $5.50 – that’s awesome! 🙂

    • Oh, I’ve had my eye on the Hello Beautiful Collection, but ultimately I chose the cold hard cash savings instead!

    • I’m having trouble finding the hello beautiful collection, did it sell out already?

  14. I agree with Marissa that these aren’t better than the Target boxes – so I would pay $5-$7 but not $15-$18. I’d even be good with these as a normal Birchbox ($10 but $5 back in review points!)

    I also might consider it if I could choose items from each box to make MY perfect box… Laneige mask and Simple ultra-light gel moisturizer and maybe the Cetaphil wipes from the one plus the Glamglow Thirstymud and the Marula facial oil from the other. Then I’d pay $15!

  15. Honestly Liz, you have become one of my favorite people! I love getting the inside scoop on all these boxes I so completely don’t need. It’s little dose of fun everyday to break up bottles and diapers and, recently, this really funky smell in here that I can’t track down…

    • 🙂 Thanks!

  16. Okay, I did it! I got the Prestige box. Shouldn’t have really…but I had $20 in points, did the mystery pack and 20% off and threw in the $50 amika Un.Done Up set that I had my heart set on. So a good amount of great stuff for about $34 in the end. I didn’t do the mass appeal box because the Target beauty box I got earlier this summer gave me the Olay cream which would’ve been my main motivator. But in the Prestige box I really wanted to try the push up liner, hair perfume, glam glow items, etc. so I’m pumped for the Prestige box.

  17. Try TAKEALEAP20 for 20% off. I’ve used most of the others but I hadn’t seen that one before.

    I got both, the mystery sample pack, some Shea Terra scrub, and some Yes to Carrots wipes. Total was $39.99. I had 400 points and used a code. Free for me!

    • Thanks! I’ve used all the other ones.

    • Thanks Ragan the code is the only one I haven’t used and made it an easy decision to buy both. With points and the code I paid $4. Anything I don’t want I give as gifts to family and friends. Also, thanks Liz! Without this site I would have much more money, but receiving my boxes is so much fun!

  18. By using TAKEOFF20 and $20 in points, I was able to get both boxes, the mystery pack, and a full-size self tanner for $14. Wiiiiiiiin! 😀

  19. Were these better last year or was I naive-er last year? I got the mass appeal for the eye cream & moisturizer, wanted nothing in the Prestige.

    You have to spend $35 for the mystery gift AND to get the 20% offs to work so I threw in shampoo… which of course always gets used.

    • I agree with you. Both boxes were much better last year. This is an easy skip for me.

  20. THANK YOU LIZ! Loveee this blog for stuff like this + the coupon reminders! SO excited with what I snagged! I had $10 available via 100 BB Points so this is how it played out, for me at least. I had to get the facial wipes to get over the $35 hump but eh: I need them anyway I go through them like crazy!

    • ****Total was $15.58!!!! Got cut off above, sorry. ****

      • Yay! Coupons + free samples + birchbox points = my favorite way to shop! 🙂

        • Its a blessing AND A curse that I found this blog hahaha. Adore you though Liz and without your spoilers I would miss out on SO. MUCH. <3

    • Hahaha. I bought the same thing you did. We are shopping soul mates!

      • Yay I need a shopping soul mate! None of my friends are as into beauty as I am but love my “unwantables” that I forward to them hahaha. 🙂

  21. I’m not very excited about these. Let’s see how long I can resist…

  22. I just purchased both. I like enough products in each box that I think make it worth the cost. I ended up using the take20off code, got my mystery sample and used $10 in points…ended up at $20.40 for both boxes and the mystery pack. Not sure how that worked out math wise, got an extra $2.00 off somehow, but I’ll take it!

    • edited: coupon code was takeoff20 NOT take20off. It’s early, haven’t had enough coffee yet!

  23. Are these bixes a one time purchase or only available to subscribers? I currently get one monthly box (IPSY) and have been sampling some other one time purchases. I am new to subscription boxes and still figuring out how all this works! Thanks!

    • It is a one time purchase. It does not start you a monthly sub.

      • Thanks!

  24. I think it must depend on your account and status. None of the discount codes would work for me. I dont know if it is because I am an ACE? Too bad, I wanted the Prestige box, but not at full price. It really isnt much more than a monthly box.

    • I’m an ACE and the takeoff20 worked for me. Sorry it’s not working for you 🙁

    • Each code only works once and Liz posts the same ones each time, so you might have used it before.

    • Jann, I’m an ACE too and was able to use the code!

  25. Got both for $27.40 with the welcomeoffer20 code. Thank you so excited

  26. I got both and used a 20% off code and my points so they were basically free 😀 I have a question though, are you able to combine a 20% off code with a bonus buy code? It only allows me to enter one code, but it sounds like some ppl are able to take advantage of both….what’s the secret?

    • No, if you use one of the 20% discount codes, you can’t combine it with a GWP or other bonus item. But you can still add the Mystery Sample Pack if you spend $35.

  27. Thanks for the heads up! Just grabbed the “mass appeal” box for $5 with points. Nothing caught my eye in the “prestige headliners” box.

  28. My account with points isnt an ace and I just dont like the prestige box enough (all samples but a lipstick thing, it literally feels like a birchbox). LOVE the mass appeal but after getting similar items from target for $5-7 its hard to pay this much for them! decisions…

    • I was thinking the same thing. Although I love the Olay eye cream from sampling in the Target box and have been wanting to try the BBs lip crayon. The mascara is full size as is the Simply Clean moisturizer. I think this is worth it.

  29. Got both! Thanks for the heads up. Thanks MSA for the reminders of the codes and the mystery pack offer too.

    • You are welcome! 🙂

  30. Getting super frustrated, I tried all the codes on my main account, it won’t let me use any of them. I tried the codes on my 2nd account and one finally worked so I hit place order and now just keep getting an error message. I give up, apparently someone is trying to tell me I don’t need these boxes, which I really don’t lol.

  31. Wooo hooo!! Just got the Prestige box and a few other things for free with my points that have been burning a hole in my pocket! Thanks for the heads up!!! =)

  32. Got both. I love Birchbox special boxes. I really wanted the Olay eye cream Simple moisturizer and Fekkai hair mist. Everything else is just a bonus.

  33. You’re welcome! I don’t have the spare cash this month (yay tuition payments for preschool) but I knew MSA readers would want to nab it up!

  34. I had to get both! But in all fairness I got to use the 20% off and got a free mystery pack. I always appreciate when you give us codes to use and remind us of the mystery packs. I would forget otherwise.
