Birchbox Customer Appreciation Day in 2019 is taking place on September 18th, but the party officially kicks off today. It was the first subscription box to make an impact on the multi-billion dollar a year beauty industry. Many, including Birchbox, consider it the Original Beauty Box. A lot of subscription box addicts began our addiction to boxes thanks to Birchbox. Well, I’ve never had more than six unique subscriptions at a time, so I am a subscription box amateur. Though I’ve explained why I like subscription boxes, I feel like they are only a part of getting the best deal. Thus, I cannot see myself ever having too many subscriptions. Then again, some might say one is too many. I began my subscription journey in February 2014 with Birchbox. It is the only subscription I’ve had this long. Others have come and gone.
Happy Birthday, Birchbox. Birchbox turns nine next month. It started customer appreciation day in 2014 to celebrate its fourth anniversary. Every September since, Customer Appreciation Day returns for one-day. On this day, Birchbox holds a number of deals. The 2018 event was probably the weakest I’ve seen. With the price increase and customers exiting, Birchbox must step up its efforts for the 2019 event.
Pre 2019 Birchbox Customer Appreciation Day Offers
This is the first year Birchbox started the Customer Appreciation Day festivities early. Starting today through September 3rd, Birchbox is offering customers 30% off MAC Cosmetics, smashbox, GLAMGLOW, and more. It coincides more with Labor Day than Customer Appreciation Day, but I understand the cross promotion. With the added expense of the box, subscribers want to see more benefits.
Starting today, members can also purchase gift subscriptions for 30% off. This is valid through September 3rd. Since the minimum discount equates to the price increase, this is not much of an offer. Nevertheless, I really enjoy my Birchbox. I could see someone taking advantage of this deal to get someone the same happiness I feel when I fall in love with something I never would have had I not gotten this subscription.

Customer Appreciation Month Bonus
Birchbox is sending a free bag and sheet of stickers to all subscribers in the September 2019 Birchbox in honor of Customer Appreciation Day.
That is already a step-up from last year, because it makes sure everyone gets something.
I like this, but I did not add the bag or stickers into my September 2019 Birchbox value.
They do technically add to the value of the box though.

It looks like You-Time Debates started at 9am PST on Instagram and Facebook. You can enter to win prizes there.
I was going to get the Limited Edition Grooming Box, which was working with the discount yesterday. Today, it stopped working. It is apparently one of the two exclusions. So, instead of a box full of things to try, I got my husband two hair products he enjoys.
It looks like Walgreens is getting in on the fun. Head over to your local Walgreens for free snacks and a bracelet with a Birchbox purchase.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
