  1. I logged into my Birchbox account, 210 points are available. I added the yearly subscription, then the 25% discount code. I have tried on my laptop and tablet, on neither browser was I able to use my points to pay for the subscription. Any suggestions??

    Thank you!!

    • I did it by purchasing the womens 12 month subscription gift card. Add it to cart, it should ask if you want to use points and then put in promo! They will send the card to you.

  2. So excited!!! I used the 25% off code (not an ace) and my points and got an annual sub for $42.50. That drops my box down to $3.54 per month woot woot!!! I also got the glossybox deal a few weeks ago for $8.75 a box. With all this money ive saved I can afford another sub or two. LOL

  3. So my account status is still active and they are closed until Monday. My last box for my annual was November’s. I’m guessing my status will stay active until December. I emailed them…

    I don’t understand why it’s so easy for monthly to upgrade to a yearly and just to renew a yearly is like pulling teeth. Grr! So frustrating! I opted out of the automatic renewal and canceled my account and it says I’m still active…do I gift myself a yearly sub just to get the deal???

    • I was able to email them requesting a call and within five minutes they called. I had a friend gift me and I gifted them. Worked well! I needed birchbox to stop the auto renewal though

  4. Liz, may I ask…why do my comments always disappear? I looked via ipad, Firefox and chrome. Always disappear.

  5. Oh and yes free mystery pack. Score!

  6. I finally made up my mind and got: Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray ($42), Lipstick Queen Lipstick in Frog Prince ($25), L. Erickson Grab & Go Pony Tube ($18), and a mystery sample pack. Altogether $85, or $95 if you count the sample pack, which I doubt anyone ever pays for. Grand total after discount and points = $0.00. Best purchase ever.

  7. One more question before I subscribe: If I pay for the yearly subscription, does that mean I can’t cancel at any point in the year?

    • They’ll let you unsubscribe during the first month. But after that, no.

  8. for the Ace only… does it activate immediately once you hit the amount?

  9. My only beauty subscription box is Allure (and I almost always get the Target boxes, and I get Walmart). Birchbox befuddles me because there are always so many different versions and points and a system I don’t understand, so I’ve stayed away. Should I be subscribing? I like Allure because it’s normal brands, not some cosmetic company in someone’s basement with highly inflated RVs (like appears to be the case in Boxycharm!). How does Birchbox compare?

    • The vast majority of brands you find in Birchbox are legitimate high-end brands. Some are less well known than others, but are still quality. For instance, I first discovered the hair care brand Davines at Birchbox. The only other store that carries Davines is friggin’ Barnies.

      I’ve found more new products and brands that I love via Birchbox than any other beauty sub.

      But that’s just me. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Thanks, Tamara! That’s a good point. I assume that if I don’t know of a brand, it must be garbage, but it didn’t occur to me that it may be so high-end and that’s why I never heard of it ๐Ÿ™‚

        Another concern I have is that it seems so complicated. I tried searching for Birchbox reviews here and there are so many posts about different options and different boxes. I don’t want to have to think about it, I just want a box to arrive every month. Is it possible to just sign up and be done or do I need to make choices?

        • You never HAVE to make a choice on anything. You will be given options each month but if you ignore it, then Birchbox chooses for you. Easy Peasy, I promise.

          I also imagine at some point, you may want to make sure you get one of the choices to suit your preference more and they make that pretty easy to do too!

          As far as points, it’s really not as complicated as it sounds. If you go online and review your box samples (before the deadline the next month), points are automatically added to your account. Then if you ever decide to buy a full-size product from Birchbox, they’ll ask if you want to use your points toward it andโ€ฆ voila!

          • Thank you! I love the enthusiasm you guys have for this box! I just went to the site and I fear I’m about to descend down a rabbit hole from which I (and my credit card) will never emerge…

        • Birchbox was the second sub box that I ever subscribed to, ( thank you again Liz!)
          I’ve had to stop most of my subs in the past few months bc my daughter is very ill and the hospital bills are getting up there. She asked me to keep Loot Crate and Birchbox for as long as we can. She loves the gaming boxes and I thought that she would ask to keep LC and another gaming box; my jaw dropped when she asked to keep BB. I was also quite happy. We discovered Liz Earle products through BB and her skincare line is amazing and pretty high end. Pretty much everything we have found in BB seem to be high end and amazing products. I save up my points to get the Liz Earle products for my daughter because of her sensitive skin and I love the Beauty Protector line, besides working great, the smells are just the best. The limited edition boxes are great for presents. I did about 90% of my Christmas shopping from them last year, everyone loved their presents, especially the ones that received the le boxes.
          I hope this helps some ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Does anyone know when this sale expires?

  11. I may have put in 5 separate orders to take advantage of the mystery pack add on for almost every order over 35. :-l

  12. I am going insane!! I’m trying to upgrade from month-to-month to an annual with the ACESONLY code (been waiting a couple months to do this), but I can’t do it!! There’s no place for me to upgrade on the site. As I recall, I need to cancel the month-to-month, then purchase the annual, but there’s no Cancel button where there’s supposed to be (on the My Account page.)


    I just wrote an email to their customer service, but with Thanksgiving they probably won’t get back to me until Monday. ๐Ÿ™

    • I just upgraded my month to month this morning. If you go to your account page there is a link that says upgrade to annual or something along those lines.( it is located in the upper left corner- where it says subscription active, then your tracking # for Nov box, then the link which was in a different color if I recall) click the link and it adds the annual sub to your cart and don’t forget to add your mystery sample pack!

      • That’s the problem, though. Those links aren’t there. It says Status: Active, then links to update my profile and my Nov box tracking. No cancel or upgrade links.

        • Oh No! So sorry, thats frustrating! I hope the coupon code is valid until Friday that way you can chat with CS and get an instant response instead of waiting for email. On the upside at least a sub wont sell out ๐Ÿ™‚

          • In the email I sent them I said I wanted to use the 30% off code for the annual sub. With their customer service, I feel reasonably confident that they’ll let me use it even if it expires in the meantime. I don’t see an expiration date anywhere, though, so that makes me feel better, too.

          • I had same issue and got an email back that I can buy a 12-month gift card with the discount and then apply that once my subscription ends in Dec.

  13. I ordered a 12 Month Women’s Gift Card instead of Upgrading my account to an Annual Subscription – oops. I hope it’s just a matter of entering in the gift card number when it arrives and maybe canceling my month to month. Anyone know?

    • I have this question too. I don’t get a link to upgrade my subscription (like the above poster), so was thinking about just buying myself a 12-month gift card.

  14. Yay! I got the Charmed Life and a Coastal Scents Palette (I actually like their formula better than my Too Faced Chocolate Bar) plus a mystery pack. It has ALREADY SHIPPED!

    (Funny thing was I was looking at the total before hitting “order” and kept saying “Why am I spending this much? I don’t need this.” Then I realized I forgot the ACESONLY code….DUH!)

    I went back later and upgraded my subscription to an annual. Even with tax it works out to only about $7 per box!

    I used $10 in points on my 1st order and now have almost $20 to spend again! Love this!

  15. When does this deal end?

  16. November was my last month for my annual and I clicked to opt out of my renewal and it still says I’m active?? I’m trying to resub for the annual with the 25%…but it’s not showing to resubscribe!! Grrr!

    • No worries, it can be fixed! the same thing happened with me. I initiated a chat with the customer service rep and she just needed to change my account to inactive. I refreshed my account page and viola! I was able to add a annual sub + mystery pack to my cart and checkout with the 30% acesonly discount total was $77 for the year. within 5 minutes of starting my chat I was checking out, super easy and quick

    • I’m having the exact same issue. I canceled my sub hours ago and it still says that it’s active as well. I just don’t want to miss December because of a technical error.

  17. BIGDEAL isn’t working for me. Is it only for stuff in the Holiday Store? Or maybe it’ll only work on Black Friday? Grrrr.

    • It worked for me about 20 minutes ago.

    • How much is your order for? I am pretty sure you have to spend $35+ for the code to work.

  18. I canceled my sub last week, and was blue to click on the resub option, select annual, and use ACESONLY for a total of $77, including he free mystery 2 sample pack.

  19. ACESONLY is not valid??? I’m an ace. Is it working for everyone else?

    • Yeah it was valid and then it wasn’t valid for me after I exited out & logged back in. Idk what happened.

    • Is your order over $35?

  20. Can you shop and use your acesonly coupon and then shop again and use the code again? Or is it just a one time use?

    • I used the “acesonly” twice

      • Thank you!

        • You’re welcome ?

    • Their email said it was multi-use. Of course I am out of money at the moment so I don’t think I will get a chance to find out…

  21. Woo! I just scored big time! Subtotal $208- DISCOUNTS $69.51- Reward points 1300 with a grand total out of pocket $8.84

    • You are my new hero.

  22. I’m so glad I waited to upgrade to an annual. I almost took the bait with that Laqa & Co deal last week, so glad I held out. All set for another year. Love Birchbox! Also going to order the Luxe box for my mom for her Christmas present with my other Aces account as well. Such a great deal

  23. So sad! I just upgraded last week…and they won’t do an adjustment! ๐Ÿ™

  24. I am on a month to month subscription. Does anyone know if I can I buy a 1 year subscription gift card and then use that to pay for a year going forward? And keep my current account and not have to open a new one.

    • I am also month to month and was able to upgrade to annual for 25% off using the promo code! Just go to your account and click on the link to upgrade to an annual account–then enter the promo code!

      • But do you get points this way?

        • Yes–I got points for upgrading to the annual subscription. 90 points if you use the 25% off code.

    • It worked for me too. I upgraded to annual for $77 using the ACESONLY code.

  25. For long time subscriber like me don’t even get the box subscription discount price. They really should for royalty customer. I was supposed to get the bracelet when I resubscribe awhile ago. The customer service told me they are out of stock and will ship to me when it is become available. Nada. It had been months.

  26. The site appears to be jammed. I can’t get anything but the limited addition boxes page to load. Bummer.

    • I was just on chat with them and they said it should be up again within the hour.

  27. Is anyone else having a problem with the birchbox site, I can’t get any pages to load, I’ve tried it on my computer, phone and birchbox app

  28. They must be overloaded because their site isn’t working right. I search for things (that I know exist) and get no results, or I get the spinning black box.

  29. I think their website crashed. Nothing seems to be loading. ๐Ÿ™

  30. Thank you again for this deal! I just got $50 worth of stuff for $20 after the code and points ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. I wanted to restock on my favorite hand cream (Davines Anti-Aging) and give some as gifts because those are a steal at 30% off (seriously, that stuff is magic for my eczema-prone hands), but they’re out of stock ๐Ÿ™

    • They are out of stock on a lot of stuff ๐Ÿ™

      • I know! I had a whole list of stuff I was going to get during their Black Friday sale, and they’re out of stock on over half of it ๐Ÿ™

    • Rebecca — you should try the Dr. Scheller Argan Oil Hand Care sometime! I received it in a Birchbox and it was amazing on my eczema on my hands. ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. I’ve never subscribed before but am tempted by the 25% discount on an annual subscription. Does anyone know if that’s the best price I am likely to get?

    • Yes. If you aren’t an ACE, then 25% off of an annual subscription calculates out to $6.88/month. That’s phenomenal for a $10 box.

      • Thanks! Even with tax included, it’s still ~$7.50 a box. I took the leap and am excited, I’ve been looking for an excuse to join for a while now.

  33. How long does the “Acesonly” coupon last?

  34. I am an ACE and the ACESONLY code isn’t working for me either. Yes, I am logged in. It says it isn’t valid.

    • After playing with the code, I believe it only works on $35 or more. Might that explain why it isn’t working for some?

  35. Does the 30% off include subscriptions?

    • It does! I just added the annual to my card but can’t decide if I should do it.

      • That’s awesome. I want to renew my subscription using that 30% off but I don’t see the annual subscription to add. I only see gift subscriptions?

        • I just signed in and clicked on my account and clicked resubscribe. At checkout I used the code and it worked. You can also add a bonus mystery pack!

          • Thanks. I’m going to have to talk to Customer Service. It’s not allowing me to do it says I have an active subscription. but November was my last box. Thanks girls!

          • I was on month to month and had unsubscribed…

    • I just used it for a subscription and it let me ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. I bought the Charmed Life for every lady in my family and some smith and cult polishes for my stocking ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. Is it off everything? I was trying to added it to the sale items and it was only giving me one discount.

  38. Thanks so much for the heads up!!? I was able to get the following items with points and a $69 balance:

    ?LJH Probiotic Sleeping Cream
    ?NUXE Travel Kit
    ?Limited Edition: Charmed Life (My second one!)
    ?Tweezerman Sole Mates
    ?Kate Spade New York Rain Check Umbrella
    ?IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer
    ?dr. brandtยฎ Xtend Your Youth Lip Filler & Volumizer
    ?Smith & Cult Nailed Lacquer – City of Compton

  39. After my Aces code and points, I got $73 worth of items for $14. Woohoo!

  40. I wanted to get the Complexion Perfection sampler but there’s no add to cart button. Is anyone else having this problem?

    • It’s sold out ๐Ÿ™

      • It’s still showing available on the app and you can add it your cart.

    • Yes! I had that problem when I was on the website on my iPad. But I tried it on my birchbox app on my iPhone and it the button was there and worked!

    • I bought it yesterday with no issues.

      • Oops, my bad. I bought the other one. Skin Recovery.

    • Thanks everyone! I’ll try it on my phone.

  41. Just ordered the Oribe Gold Lust collection. I’ve been waiting for just the right code and I finally splurged ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ooo! Oribe is such a great splurge! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I picked that up too! And some dr Jart sleeping mask that I’ve been wanting to try…

  42. Hmmmm…ACESONLY didn’t work for me. Grmph.

    • Were you signed in first?

      • I think so, but I’ll probably try it again in a while.

    • The promo is for $35+ so make sure you have at least that amount in your cart and it should work ๐Ÿ˜€

  43. I got the foreo luna mini and a pair of socks for $5, after using my 1000 points.

  44. I got a $175 perfume. With 800 points and the code, it only cost me $42.50.

  45. Finally grabbed the Luxe box!

  46. Only $10 in points but I was still able to snag two Charmed Life boxes as gifts plus a mystery box for me for only $50! Talk about a steal ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. You’re kidding!!!!! And I have $30 in points. Hoo-boy. Thanks Liz!!!!!!!!!

    • Got $82 of stuff from my lists plus the mystery sample pack for just $20. [Doing the happy dance.]

      • Is there a code for the sample pack?

        • Andrea, just go to the bonus shop, click on the sample pack, and add it to your cart. It adds the samples and $10 charge reflected on your total, but then it deducts the $10 charge at the bottom. You can then still add your promo code to get your discount.

          • Thank you!! ??
