  1. I got my Curated #2 box today in the mail, and my perfume sample was shattered and glass is everywhere and the box and contents are covered in perfume. I contacted customer service and they are only replacing the perfume sample. I think this is the last straw for me, and I’ve been a subscriber since 2013.

  2. I got the Frog Prince lipstick!

    • Yay! I know you said on another thread that you were going to try to get it, so I’m glad that you were able to snag it. Are you getting any Julep? 😉 I actually want to try their new bubble sheet masks and see how they compare to the Glamglow ones you can get through Birchbox.

      I was going to swap for points, but I wanted an add-on, so I had to get a box. I actually just chose the Malin and Goetz mask sample, so the rest of the box will be a surprise. Last month I totally missed box selection time and actually ended up with a good box with a high value.

    • I chose the Frog Prince too! I was going to choose box 2 but it was sold out by the time I thought to pick anything. I have been wanting to try this product for a while but didn’t want to pay full price for it.

  3. i got box #2…can’t wait for this..

    • I did too. Glad I didn’t miss it. A MAC in a cute color and a Smith & Co nail polish? I have no idea what the other things even are. That was worth my subscription x2 already. Will probably go good with the blush I got this month. I’m gonna be cute af for Christmas! Happy!

      • Yes, exactly! Two full size items in box #2 is amazing for the $13 per month.

  4. I became an Ace after purchasing bunch of sale items, lol. I picked box 4 over 2 thinking color of the lipstick is better for my skin tone (and LOC eye shadow is a good color for me as well). And I rarely do my nails.

  5. If I sign up today can I choose my box?
    Does anyone know?

    • I just answered my own question.
      Yes, if you sign up today you can choose your own box or sample. I chose box #2 and used coupon code EXTRAPLUS5 for a extra box plus $5 off.

      • I just signed up and it says customization is closed

      • Can’t be. My Mother in law just signed up and chose box #2.
        Google “how to customize Birchbox”.

      • How were you able to do this? When I tried ti signed up, it didn’t let me pick from any of the choices above.

      • Google “how to customize Birchbox” that’s how I did it.

  6. Just picked box 2 this morning with no problem, so it’s still available. Enjoy!

    • I just got that one. So much awesome.

  7. Does anyone know if I swap for the full sized item, will I still be able to get the box?

    • It’s not certain. When I swapped, I didn’t get the box. Some people do.

    • Last month I got the full-size blush and it came in the box. But I have heard that those who got the full-size Beauty Protector spray a few months ago did not receive a box. So I wonder whether it is based on the size of the full-size product, and whether it can fit in the box. If so, I think that there is a good chance the lipstick will come with the box!

  8. Well, I went with box 4. I really like the Beauty Protector spray and hopefully the Lipstick Queen will be a wearable color for me.

  9. I just resubscribed to get box #2, but it’s not letting me pick. I am an ace. So frustrating. It better let me pick box 2 tomorrow, otherwise I am cancelling again

    • Do you retain your status if you
      unsubscribe/cancel the subscription?

      • I cancelled And resigned as an Ace and was able to pick yesterday. Nat, you should contact CS!

      • It let me pick box 2 this morning. No confirmation email, so hopefully that’s what I get. With birchbox you never know. Last time I picked, they had mystery warehouse issues and sent a random box

      • Actually, just got confirmation email. Fingers crossed that’s what I get

  10. I cancelled my renewable annual subscription to birchbox back in August via an email to customer service. My last box was November. Good thing i saw this post because it reminded me to check my account to make sure. When i went onto the app just now, they had my account listed as a monthly rebillable subscriotion and i had the reminder to check out next months choice options! So now, i have re-emailed them to fully cancel my account and that I will not accept any future billings from them.

    Tl;DR Check your account settings to make sure your annual is actually cancelled because Birchbox just switches you to monthly.

    • Thanks for reminding me. I had cancelled last month and got an email that my annual was cancelled but didn’t realized that it wasn’t completely cancelled. So very annoying.

      • They did the same thing to you? I am really unhappy with them if this is their standard policy.

  11. I’m new to Birchbox. Can someone explain Aces to me? Thanks!

    • You spend lotsa money in the Birchbox shop.

      • Thank you, Dea!

    • It’s part of their loyalty program. Once you hit $300 in purchases (which includes subscription costs), you become an ‘Ace’. This opens up new perks for the next calendar year after meeting Ace requirement such as free shipping on any purchase amount, $10 per month Birchboxes, and others. Go to the site and click on Loyalty. The details are there.

    • And you get to choose your monthly box before any other subscribers. Plus you get first notice on sales, promos, etc.

      • Thank you so much for the information!

      • You’re welcome!

  12. I know a lot of people wanted box 2. It was still available when I was on. I did *not* order it. I realize that people who have to wait until tomorrow might be out of luck, but as of 3:00 P.M. Mountain Time it is still available.

    Also this month, this is probably just for Aces, but if you add something extra to ship with your box, they will take $5 off. I was planning to order the Chuou chocolates anyway, so with the discount they are only $5 down from $10.

    Finally, it looks like Aces also have a sale of 25% off any $30 order. Unfortunately, it apparently takes precedence over other sales, like the fall clearance page, which is supposed to be 60% off.

    • I’m an ace and added the chuao to my box, but it’s still showing it will be $10… did you do anything extra to get the $5 off?

      • You had to order something in November as a box add on to get the $5 in December.

      • Thanks!

      • Oh, I didn’t realize that. The message I received made it sound like you got the $5 off just for ordering add-ons, but maybe that was because i had already ordered in November.
