  1. I had the same issue as Cindy; I used the promo code but was still charged.

    • Looks like the charge is for the September box and the August box is the free bonus. I just updated the post to clarify.

    • I “might” have just used my second e-mail and PO Box to get in on this deal and the extra box for $10 offer–three boxes for $22 was too good to pass up for me. I am so weak when it comes to sub boxes!

  2. A few notes: Even though I used the code for a the free August box, I was immediately charged $12. Also, in case anyone is interested, I declined the first offer $39 and also the second offer $10 and there was not a third offer. FYI, in case you are wondering….

  3. Thanks, I got the deal (free aug. box and $12 monthly) plus the $10 Favorite Box offer (after I clicked “no thanks” to the $39 offer) so that’s 3 boxes for $22. Then, I’ll decide whether it’s worth the annual sub. or cancel.

  4. Hi Liz,

    Thanks for the Coupon Code! I just signed up and right after I clicked Submit the next page has another “Special Offer” called The Makeup Madness Box…did you see this offer? If so, did you purchase it? I’m just wondering because I would like to know a little bit about what’s included before I pay 39.00 for it. Thanks again! xoxo – Kelli 🙂

  5. Heads up–last time I used the free box coupon code, I had a few hiccups.
    Their shopping cart didn’t update the price total to reflect this coupon code, but I just placed the order on the hope that it would work. They automatically did a $1 verification charge to my card, but didn’t indicate in any way that they’d be doing that, so I wasn’t sure if they’d just charged me $1 for the box or what. It was refunded, but seemed kind of unprofessional?
    When it was time for the box to ship, I watched my tracking code and was totally annoyed to find out that “my” box was delivered–to the other side of the country. My box never arrived. I think they must’ve put the wrong name on my box or something and my postman refused the delivery or took it to a different apartment. They replaced my box after a few exchanges with customer service, but I wasn’t thrilled.
    They also don’t currently have a “my account” page for most subscribers. It’s pretty annoying for a company that’s been around as long as this one has (I thought they were brand new! Nope. More than a year old.)

  6. This is tempting! I just cancelled Bonjour jolie and wuoldn’t mind picking up another beauty box. I’m kind of torn betwen this, Sample Society and Petite Vour. Anyone have any thoughts? Seems like all boxes have had boxes that would rock my socks and some that would’ve been duds. I guess maybe that’s just the name of the game, hah.

    • I don’t have this box but I do have SS and PV and IMO PV is always good/sometimes great , and SS is always great 🙂

      • SS is definitely what I was leaning towards…I definitely know now after reading the comment about BBC not having an account page I’m going to pass on that!! Thanks for the feedback Brooke!

  7. I had beautybox5 canceled and based on this coupon I want to sign up again….does anyone know if it will work for subscribers that canceled and want to sign up again?

  8. I have to give props to BB5! They have done very well these past few months and great items. There value was almost $60 for me in August so I highly recommend anyone signing up because you can always cancel afterwards! I’m exited for the September box. Every company seems to be competing this month and it’s too hard to resist. There has been great spoilers and codes. Wow!!
    Thanks for the code Liz, I’m hoping there will be more people to try BB5.

  9. Is anyone else having trouble with the bb5 site being down?

    • No, it was a little slow for me but it loaded (about noon Eastern on 8/22).

    • I got through and ordered. It was running slow but no problems!

      • Thank you
