Birchbox Store Haul

One of the reasons I love Birchbox is that you can accrue points with various methods. In each box received, you can review each of the items (each review gives you 10 points) or you can receive points by having referrals (50 points per referral). Over the course of the months if you are diligent about reviewing the products you can manage to rack up a number of points and 100 points is $10 that can be redeemed in the Birchbox shop. Birchbox runs promotions every so often and when they sent me an e-mail with a 25% off code, I jumped on it.

I bought the Fresh Rose Lip Treatment, the Nuxe Reve De Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm, the Zoya Bloggers Collection Trio, the Stila In The Moment palette and Cleanwell Hand Sanitizing Wipes. I paid all of $1.36 after my points and percent off coupon code.

I think the points system makes Birchbox the stand out subscription service currently out there. Getting something in the mail each month is fun and getting full sized items in the mail at a discount or free is pretty awesome.

I was asked more specifically about how to get points, and here are the steps:
1. Log in.
2. Go to Box
3. Click on one of the big product pictures that came in your last box.
4. Click "give feedback"
5. Fill out survey (important that you're logged in)
6. You should get a screen thanking you for filling out the survey and awarding you 10 points.
