If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
Instead of creating a new article every time Birchbox releases its next (Aces surprise) 50 bonus points for 48 hours, I am going to update this article when I see a new offer. I made a purchase earlier today (o4/23/18) so of course Birchbox decided to release its next 50 bonus points a few hours later. The funny thing is Birchbox released the points offer late in the day when it launched the January 2018 limited edition box so I may start waiting until evening hours before pulling the trigger on new limited edition boxes. These bonus points are for those with accounts in Aces status and only available for two days. If you happen to see the points update when they sneak them into your account the day before, you get a little over 48 hours with them. Because I made a purchase today, I saw the surprise points in my points update (emailed whenever points change).
While the surprise points are almost always for Aces only, I will note below when anything can take advantage of the points bonus. We see about four bonuses a year for Aces and one a year (which overlaps the fourth offer Aces can also redeem) for all subscribers.
These points do not have a purchase minimum and Aces get free shipping on everything. You could technically purchase something for $5 and spend nothing. I earned 62 points from my purchase earlier today so I have $11.20 in points if I shop in the next 48 hours. I may place another order.
If you want to subscribe, remember to look at start-up offers. Look at discount offers and items available in the Bonus Shopwhen shopping the store. Remember to add your free two-piece sample packwhen spending $35 from the Bonus Shop. Tips For Getting the Best Deal lays out all the ways I know to save money at Birchbox.
