  1. I finally got the MOBILE20 code to work, I also got the freemystery samples, so with my points I only paid $5.20. So excited!

  2. Neither coupon worked for me, all of the free samples are out stock AND I am being charged for shipping. I really wish Birchbox offered some savings, especially after I have bought products from them. I am going over to get the Blush box instead.

  3. None of the codes worked for me, but I have a lot of points and I also added the free extra mystery gift located in the bonus section (its a free extra with a $35 purchase) and a Shashi bracelet which was free with a $35 or more purchase. There are a few other things you can choose instead. I ended up paying $24 for this box, free shipping, and a couple of bonus gifts. It would have been nice to also get the 20% off, but maybe I had used the codes before, which maybe why it didn’t work for me.

    • Thanks for that! I didn’t know it was possible to get the Mystery Pack and use a promo. I also got the Shashi bracelet. That mermaid compact is to die for – who could resist!

  4. So intrigued by the waterproof topcoat for mascara! May need to seek this product out individually or wait for it to hit swap boards.

  5. Wish I could get a coupon code to work 🙁

    I adored my last LE Box and this one looks just as good, maybe even better 🙂

    If anyone finds more codes please do let me know!


    • I couldn’t get either code to work but I kept trying, it took several tries over a few days but finally got MOBILE20 to work on my cell phone. Keep trying. Good luck!!

  6. between this and the new blush box, I chose the blush box. The things in it were mostly hair care products, but that’s what I liked. I can’t see myself liking anything in this birchbox mermaid collection except maybe the mirror and the polish ( but I have “enough” polish)

  7. For those of you who got the coupon codes to work, did you already have a Birchbox account? I haven’t made one and I wonder if thats’ why the coupons aren’t registering.

    • Yeah, I did have a Birchbox account.

    • Thank you for the tip. I did not think about that. I’m still debating about signing up. If they would have added a a mermaid keychain or small mini wallet along with the mirror I don’t think I’d still be deciding to sign up or not.

  8. Liz: Thank You for the coupon code 🙂 – Makes this box much more appealing. I like Mermaid’s. I’m not sure if anyone has heard of kirks folly but they also have a limited mermaid grab bag surprise box out, which I just got yesterday, so now when ever I hear of mermaid box I want it. So when I saw the birchbox email, I was immediately interested. Because of the coupon code and “Stephanie Johnson Mermaid Mirror” I think I might just get it. I just have to look at the ingredients in most the products in the box due to allergies.

    • Lily, tell me more about the Kirk’s folly box. Where can I find it?

      Thanks, Lisa


        Here is the link for the Kirk’s folly mermaid grab bag that Lily posted about; I also immediately looked it up after I read her post! Lol 🙂
        Although I’m much more into makeup products than jewelry (it’s a bag with a few random “mermaid-themed” jewelry products in it for $79.95, which is also a little expensive for me) so I won’t be going for this.
        But here’s the link above for anyone that’s interested! Looks cute 🙂

        • It’s already sold out. The surprise bags of stuff go quick — yet if u type in kirks folly in google ( I don’t want to list a url here – cause I’m not sure if it would be okay ). their site will come up they have mermaid stuff there. On occassion, about every 3 months they seem to have a limited edition surprise box. — The weird part was only few hours before I got an email from them about the mermaid box, then I got the birch box email. I did end up getting the KFolly box in the mail, value is terrific yet because I cant wear earrings I now have 3 pairs of earrings I’m gonna have to regift.

        • I know what you mean about the price. This was the first surprise bag I purchased from them. I got pins, 2 necklaces, 1 bracelet, 3 pairs of earrings, 2 scarves, and the bag is pretty, Their stuff is collectable. So I know I’ll have some of the items for years to come, yet others will have to be gifted. – I signed up for membership with them so I get a little bit of discount. So I think I paid $71. Overall it reminds me of every surprise box I’ve gotten always something to regift. Yet always something I like.

  9. I just bought this box with MOBILE20 from my desktop computer (but it was capital sensitive) I tried first20off first and it did not work. I was able to also score the free sample pack and I used my birchbox points so I got it all for $25.00 including free shipping :o)

  10. Agghh, as much as I love everything mermaid I really can’t get a new box right now. I will definitely be looking for that mirror in swaps though!!

    • Birchbox is also just selling the Stephanie Johnson mermaid mirror by itself, for anyone that’s interested. I looked it up to see the price, (since the mirror is my favorite thing in the box!) and it’s $22.00 alone.
      Expensive mirror. But it is cute!
      Much more worth it to buy the whole box.

      • Thank you 🙂 – $22 is a bit high for the mirror, yet it does look like a fun summer accessory.

  11. If I had to pick…the blush box mystery June box would win out over this birchbox special box in value and items I’m excited about. I did love the Birchbox “free” box…a lot! This one seems high priced to me.

  12. I tried all three of the promo codes on both my laptop and my mobile and none of them worked. Too bad – if one of them had a mermaid box would be swimming through the mail to me right now.

  13. I can’t get either code to work. Trying from my cell phone.

  14. I didn’t go through with the purchase (I want to get another cat and that means less splurging on other stuff) but the welcomeoffer20 code seemed to work and the MOBILE20 code seemed NOT to work.

    • I just snagged mine and wanted to confirm that the promo code MOBILE20 does in fact work, but on mobile devices only. =]

      • Thanks so much for posting this… It just worked on my phone and I was able to use some points on it too. Very excited to get this one 🙂

  15. Oh yeah I want this! The mirror, polishes, and atelier cologne are awesome!!!
