  1. Well, I’m sure glad I got this free with my order and didn’t pay $5 for it. I think I’d put the value at about $2.

    • Oops. I should have clarified that I’m glad I didn’t pay $5 for the Bonus Box.

  2. I’ve probably ordered 20 or more target boxes since I’ve been introduced to them through MSA. I’ve tried ONCE to use the 3 dollar of coupon it didn’t work so I never tried again. This morning i order 27$ of beauty items, got no free shipping but did get promised the 5$ gift card . I just called customer service and asked if i could use my 3$ beauty box coupon from this month’s beauty box. Well you would have thought that 3 bucks was coming from that CS agent’s paycheck. We went around and around, i was so frustrated i was ready to cancel the order and swear off my beloved Target on principal alone. Finally he agreed to send me a 3 $gift card, but only after a 20 minute battle of wills.Anyone else have problems with the 3$ coupon code in the beauty boxes?

    • Mine never work for online orders, even when I’m not purchasing beauty boxes. They have only worked in-store one time. The cashiers alway have to apply a discount manually.

      • Really? Mine did scan in store without any problems, and I used a couple at a time. Haven’t tried using them online yet though.

      • I just tried it online – it worked! combines discounts, so if, say, you are buying an item that is currently $1.50 cheaper than usual, after entering the code from the $3 card, it will say on top “discounts: $4.50”

        • That’s great! Those coupons just don’t seem to like me lol. I live near a Target so I usually still get to use them at the store, at least.

  3. The May beauty bonus box is all gone now.

  4. I just called customer service right now to verify if that shipping charge was correct and they said it was. It kinda sucks that they are charging more to ship the box then what they are selling it for. I was going to get this but I am going to have to pass. I think this is only a good deal if you were already going to buy the $20 worth of beauty items on anyways. Besides I feel like the recent target boxes have been kinda meh. I haven’t gotten one since January.

  5. Hmm early this morning I placed an order not realizing the box was free with a $20 purchase. I bought the $5 bonus box, $10 May box and $7 April box. Shouldn’t a free bonus box have popped up? I did get the $5 gift card.

    • Ugh I didn’t realize it would show up for free after I spent $20 so now I’m getting 2. 1 I paid for and 1 that is coming for free. Is it showing that you’re getting 1 or 2? Because you might have done the same thing.

    • That happened to me, too. I cancelled the order then placed a new one without the $5 box then it showed up as free. You may still be able to cancel/reorder or try chatting/emailing them. They typically have very good customer service.

    • They may not count the other beauty boxes toward your $20 total.

    • The beauty bonus is free with a $20 purchase, but the bonus itself does not count towards the purchase.
      Also, you don’t need to add it to your cart – if you make the minimum, the bonus is going to appear in your cart automatically.

      • Thank you! Yes I was thinking the bonus box purchase counted.

  6. $5.00 for the box and $6.00 shipping??? Are you kidding me? No thanks!

  7. Correction to my last post: I was going to pass, but when I added an item to my cart that I had been needing to buy (might as well make use of the $5 gift card promotion), the May Beauty Bonus box AND $5 GC added itself to my cart, both free.

    Side note: I ordered a 10oz bottle of ‘IT’S A 10 Miracle Leave-in Product’ for $27.49 ($37.03 from Ulta). Using my Target REDcard I saved 5% & received free shipping. With tax, I only paid $27.43 for for the styling product I needed, a gift card to use at a later time, & these 4 samples. Not bad! Even if I don’t use everything, I’m saving samples for stockings this Christmas.

    • Hey, you want mine? I bought the full size (10 oz) based on recommendations, and ended up only using it once – unfortunately, it doesn’t work on my hair. 🙁

      I’ll sell for half price + postage.

    • Yup

      • Well I ended up “buying” it (actually, I got it for free). See my other comment!

  8. Can anyone get their $3 off 15 code from the last box to work? It really irritates me that they incentivize these boxes with $3 coupons and then the codes won’t work online.

    • I got mine to work but it was due to me buying a makeup organizer and they consider that beauty/cosmetics item

  9. What’s up with shipping cost? I’ve never been charged shipping on beauty boxes.

  10. They got me again! I got another April box(3rd),another may box( 2nd) & 2 beauty things. I rational this by saying there mother’s day gifts , but i know me . Im a product junkie horder. God i need help

    • you are not alone!!! I just love a box to be there when I come home. Some people have their wine and others may need that cigarette but I just love opening a new box and playing with my products lol.

  11. These 4 samples were free in store yesterday as part of a beauty event.

    • I missed the beauty event. We were at a soccer field those hours. I wanted to go. You went? What was it like?

      • I didn’t go but I heard about it on Reddit. Apparently the sales associates didn’t really know what to do from other people’s reports, which is probably why they have samples to unload. Several stores had a table out but you had to ask for the samples.

        • That was my experience yesterday. My 18 year old daughter and I went to the “beauty event.” The first time past the table the two employees ignored us. The second time they stopped talking to each other and acknowledged us.

          It was very awkward. We tried some lotion, listened to her talk about dry shampoo, and she was ready to send us on our way even though there was a whole box of samples next to her on the floor and we were the only people at the booth.

          I had to ask if I could sample the mask she had displayed on the table. She reluctantly said well, since you are here, I can give you these samples. Then she gave us one pack of the samples to share! It included a dry shampoo, goil sample of mask, and Averno lotion.

          It was very strange. So I’m not surprised they have lots of extras!

    • They weren’t offered at all stores,, though. The nearest one to me was about 20 miles and I live near a large city. Worth $5 to not have to drive over there.

  12. Easy pass. I’m averaging about 3 Target beauty boxes a year. I use to grab every single one.

  13. I got it and the gift card free with my order. I had more stuff to stock up on so I put in another order and will be getting two. I really wish that target would make it easier and just double the gift card if you hit $40.

    • Maybe they are afraid people will spend $200 and get 10 of them lol? Or buy a fancy blow dryer and get 3 or 4?

  14. Looks like you can get the $5 box for free if you have $20 of other beauty stuff. I got 4.2 oz BioOil since there is a $5 gift card on that and the May $10 box and it automatically added the Promotional box, plus two $5 gift cards – one for the oil and one for the total spend of $20. Dial body wash also happens to be buy 4, get $5 gift card too.

    • Oh – but I also have red card so free shipping.

      • I was going to say the same thing. Looks like you get the box for free with a $20 purchase. I spent $35 and the box showed up as a free promotional item and the $5 gift card showed up as well. I used the $3 beauty coupon from the last target box, then saved 5% and got free shipping for using my target card. Not a bad deal!

    • I noticed this a bit earlier when I was ordering some hair stuff, that this beauty bonus was added for free automatically. Too bad to don’t actually need anything in it, lol. 🙂

      • I meant too bad *I don’t

    • sara, thanks for posting about the biooil offer.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I had to get some face scrub for my son that was almost $10 so I added two of them plus a lip balm to get the free box and gift card. I wouldn’t have bought the box but it was nice to get it for free!

    • Thanks for the tip. I was going to order one, but purchased a couple other items and got it free instead.

  15. Not worth $5.00, much less $5.99 shipping. Ridiculous.

  16. meh, pass.

  17. They are charging for shipping with the beauty boxes now. Boo!!

    • I’m hoping it’s a fluke and I’ll try again in the morning. I tried to add the May Beauty Box and it upped the shipping! If not, I’m not paying $6 just for shipping.

      • It says $5.99 for shipping on the first page but once you go through checkout the shipping goes away if you are a red card holder. At least it did it for me.

        • I’ll try it again. I have a Red Card but it was still showing the $6 shipping charge.
