  1. Read the details. Must be shipped and sold by Amazon. No digital content. I bought a Red Lobster gift card to be mailed to me. My son loves the place. There are gift cards for Lowes, Applebees, etc. I really just wanted an Amazon gift card, but that wouldn’t accept the code, though it meets the criteria. Red Lobster gets me an $8.63 discount on my next lunch with my son.

  2. The coupon wont work for me. Anyone else?

    • The coupon did not work for me.

      I’m made sure I had a minimum of $50, and even removed a credit I had just in case I could not combine my credit with the coupon code, but still no luck.

      Liz, I’m curious how you became aware of the coupon? Did Amazon email you? Being that I’m a Prime member, I’m surprised I didn’t receive any notification from Amazon.

      • For me, it’s front and center on the homepage. Let me know if you aren’t seeing it there. I can send you a screenshot. Hope that helps!

        • Well there it is! I see it now. It wasn’t on my view of the home screen earlier in the day.

          I read the terms and figured out why it did not work: all of the items purchased must be from Amazon. I had an item in my cart that that was not sold by

          Thanks, Liz!

          • Awesome! Glad it worked now!

  3. Does anyone know if the Amazon Beauty Boxes change? I ordered the $11.99 one and the $19.99 one in late January and wonder if they cycle through different items throughout the year.

  4. P.S. But not an actual Amazon Gift card I don’t think, just sephora, nordstrom etc…

  5. It works on a $50 gift card sold and shipped by amazon too.

  6. Thanks for posting, Liz. Amazon rarely has coupons and I have their credit card, so I get rewards for using that too! Awesome!

    • Yay!!

  7. It doesn’t exactly equate to free. To redeem the credits from the boxes (making the boxes “free”) you can only spend up to what the box cost you (ex, 19.99) towards a future purchase of participating brands from that box. So if you spend $19.99 on a Luxury Beauty Box and then $9.99 on a Men’s Grooming Box – you get $29.98 in credit BUT you can only spend the max of what each box cost when using the credit. You can’t simply take the $29.98 credit and buy whatever you want – you can only use up to $19.99 on a item(s) that the luxury box had included and then the same goes for the men’s. If you were planning on buying something from each box that meets or exceeds the cost of the box then you’re set. Otherwise you just get the boxes for $19.99 and $9.99 each.

    • I just updated the text to make it a little clearer. Thank you!

    • I think it’s not all that clear cut. I bought an Oral-B electric toothbrush and it applied 3 different credits I had, one of which was the beauty box. I didn’t even have to apply them. When I want to check out there were the credits already there. I was very pleasantly surprised. Three credits for one item.

    • They have allowed me to use credits on other items in the category — luxury beauty items, for example, that were not in the box.
