Birchbox Sale 40% Off Limited Edition Boxes + Coupon Stacking Hack!

For a limited time, Birchbox is offering 40% off everything in this sale section! The discount will be automatically applied in your cart.

And the sale section includes these Limited Edition boxes:

(FYI – the Time To Dazzle Limited Edition box is actually 50% off!)

And these Birchbox Kits:

AND since the discount is automatically applied, you can stack this deal with coupons to get some extra freebies!

There are lots of ways to get awesome deals with the sale section + the free gifts section, but here’s one example to get you going!

Step 1: Add the Birchbox Limited Edition: Time to Dazzle box to your cart. It’s regularly $66, this brings the cost down to $33, and it has a value of over $225 worth of items. (And it includes so many of my favorite brands: Sunday Riley, Stila, Oribe, Living Proof, BeautyBlender, + more). Most of these are full size, too!

Step 2: Add this free sample pack to your cart.
Next, it’s time to add this free sample pack to your order. This free sample pack has a price of $10, but again, Birchbox will automatically deduct $10 from your cart, so your actual total is still $33.

Step 3: Pick your bonus free gift!
Now for the extra stacking! Even though your cart total after discounts is still $33, thanks to the $10-value sample pack, Birchbox reads your cart total as $76! That means you can pick any of the free gifts from this page. Don’t see something you want on that page? Check out the men’s free gift page, too. (You can use a free gift offer from that page even if you don’t buy anything from the men’s section.)

Here’s an example

  1. Sent cs a text regarding the disappearing order item but they are closed over the weekend. Am pretty pissed about this waste of time. Will have to spend more time next week fighting with customer service for the bait and switch. They are also charging 10 before codes for the “free gift w/ $30 purchase”, for an order that is 30+ even after codes. This is technically, though low profit, fraud.

  2. Submitted my order as directed. Went thru. Received both order and shipment confirmations. But today I got an email saying that skincare set that was confirmed in the order will not be added. ??? Classic bait and switch.

  3. Did anyone else get an email today saying the Makeup Made Easy kit is not available and would not be included with my order? I ordered several days ago and they just sent this to me today. Weird.

    • Yes. I got the email stating Skin Treatment won’t be apply to my order.

    • Yes, I ordered the Limited Edition Time To Dazzle Box and received the same email from Birchbox stating:

      Unfortunately, the Skincare Treatments Set is no longer available and we will not be able to apply it to your order. Please be assured you were not charged for this item.

      I thought this was a free gift with purchase of $75. This is disappointing. I think it would be nice if Birchbox allowed you to pick from the other gifts with purchase that are still available or the men’s gifts with purchase.

  4. Thanks! I got the hair detangling kit, battington lash starter kit, free mystery gift, free baggu, FREE SHIPPING!!!

    MSA has killed me this month with the sale notifications! Ipsy has some nice packages for the low-low and the coupon with Beautyfix was just insane!

  5. Thank you so much! I would never have figured all of this out without your help. (:


    I had gotten the email from Birchbox ( who didn’t?) and tossed it, not really understanding what they were offering as I’ve been away from the sub for a while.

    Your great, I mean- super great- tutorial of how it added up and the free products and all made it so easy and impossible to resist. These are some really nice kits with name brand products! 😉

    I even stumbled across this post while browsing.. I’d had BB on pause for months ( with an expired card listed for payment) but this offer pushed me right back into Birchbox Subscription Land.

    I got the **Dazzle box, the **Makeup Superheroes set, the free**Mystery Sample Pack and the free**Skincare Set for purchases over $75.

    I may cave and go BACK because I really really want the Hair Detangling Set too- sigh. I’ve cut tiny knots out of the back of my super long curly hair all_ winter_ long, the ends get so dry. I have so much hair it doesn’t show but it isn’t fun to have so many snarled curls. But I’m on a very low budget, so might or might not get the Hair Detangling box. Also want the Vogue box. ( It never ends- see why I’m on a ” low buy” huge ” move the money to SAVINGS” push? ;)).

    **I also reactivated my Birchbox subscription because I think this is a super stellar offer and I’d like to give them my business again.**

    >>>Take note, other sub boxes- THIS is how you win back customers and attract new ones- not with ??? promises of La Mer and Sunday Riley. <<<

  7. I caved and got the exact same things as shown in the example purchase- Dazzle box, mystery sample pack, and skincare treatments set. After tax, it’s only $35.55. I may be broke, but at least I am fabulous!
    I am going to gift the Smashbox primer & clip-on earrings, but everything else sounds exciting! The hair do thingamabob, the pretty nail polish, the eye brushes, a Beautyblender?! There’s so much here! ♡
    The only things I already own are the two Sunday Riley items, and I will be saving these for an upcoming trip! I use them every day 🙂

    • Wow, I already got an email saying it shipped! Less than 10 hours later!

    • Everything arrived yesterday 3/14. Thank you again! I am so happy to be a MSA reader 🙂 I keep telling my friends and family what they are missing out on!

  8. This is great!!! Thanks so much for breaking down how to get the best deal. It worked perfectly and I am so excited.

  9. Great deal!!! I’ve been eyeballing this set with the earrings for months! Thank you!!!

  10. I placed my order yesterday with the Dazzle box, Mystery Sample Pack and the free Skincare Treatment Set but my order history is only showing 2 items the Dazzle box and Mystery set did this happen to anyone else? Should I be contacting CS or wait and see if it comes with the rest of order?

    • same thing happened with my order, and I also had the same question as you, but everything came in the parcel!! I think perhaps they don’t include the free gift, in the number of items shipped? but I’m sure you’ll get everything that you ordered, as I did!

      • That’s what I was hoping, good to know, thank you.

  11. Thanks so much for the email! I would not have known about the 40% off or the freebies. I just bought a few things AND got some freebies! I love it!

  12. I got the dazzle box because I’ve wanted those earrings for ages!
    Birchbox added a year subscription to my cart as I was checking out, which is super weird. I removed it and the coupons worked anyway. I chose the acure super greens serum which is a gift w $50 purchase because I love the brand! And would rather have one full size item than a bunch of samples.

    • I okayed my order total as $36 and got email confirmation. I then checked my cc statement online and after that charge was a separate one for $110. I did not approve that, nor did I get an email confirming it. I just sent them a message to cancel the subscription. It couldn’t have been in my cart if it said $36. Annoying!

  13. I placed an order this afternoon and got a shipping notification this evening. That’s lightning fast! However, the free gift I selected isn’t shown in my shipping email. Did that happen to anyone else?

    • Yes, and I was worried, but it came.

      • Good to know! Thanks!

  14. Thanks for sharing. Love getting freebies.

  15. Thank you so much for this post! I grabbed a bunch of stuff I want to try (but don’t need lol) for under $50 with some freebies! So excited!!

  16. I LOVE these coupon stacking posts! Keep them coming!!!

    Also love the new e-mails for these kinds of deals. Really helps us stay on top of them. Thanks, Liz! <3

  17. Very creative use of discounts and stacking. Thanks for the great tips!

  18. How interesting that they’re only promoting this now. I placed an order last Saturday, & Birchbox gave me the 40% off then.

    • Yeah weird. This sale has been going on since this weekend. That’s when the emails were sent out.

      • I just got the email today. Maybe it’s because I’m not an Ace any more?

    • I got an email from Liz promoting it maybe 10 days ago too, the same wording and coups stacking too. I got the time to dazzle box and the living proof style extender is the best thing I’ve ever received in my entire life! I can now go three, and maybe even four days in between washing my hair and it still looks wonderful! OMG such a wonderful thing. Now I you can throw my hair in a bun and jump in the shower real quick and just use my wonderful spongelle, and be in and out in three minutes.

      I usually have extremely greasy hair I need to wash my hair at least every other day and use a bunch of dry shampoo in between. With this product I just put a almond sized amount in after my leave in conditioner which I try to focus on the tips of my hair, and I focus the living proof style extender towards the roots, but do extend it down. I then blowdry and I’m done for 3 days! Yay.

      • I LOVE LP’s texture spray for that reason. I have fine hair that tends to get flat and/or greasy after the 2nd day. I have a full size of the style extender, but haven’t tried it yet. Now I’m totally going to, thank you!

      • I am super intrigued. I also have extremely greasy hair (by the second day…ugh) but never thought to use the LP style extender on my roots. I’m afraid it would lead to even more oily roots. I think I’ll try your method out tonight since I’m due for my second day hair wash.

      • Can you do this same thing but let your hair air dry instead of blow dry? Or do you think the product would dry down differently in your hair?

  19. Thank you!

  20. Thanks Liz for the heads up! Snagged a kit and item with freebies! Love a good deal!

    • Yay!!!

  21. Finally managed to make a purchase. Their horribly slow website kept emptying the cart while I was surfing other sections for more goodies. You’d think they didn’t want to make a sale. Thanks for the heads-up, Liz!

    • Glad you were able to get through checkout!
