-If you’re already subscribed or want to shop without subscribing, store information and deals are on a separate page.
-Read articles regarding Birchbox Man: August 2015 Welcome Box, September 2015, October 2015, November 2015, December 2015, January 2016, February 2016, March 2016, April 2016, May 2016, June 2016, July 2016, and August 2016.
–Birchbox subscriptions are $10 (grooming) or $20 (Plus) a month charged on the day you sign up, then every month on the 15th. The $10 a month plan has 5 grooming samples. Those on the $20 plan get a bonus lifestyle product (usually worth a lot more than the added $10 cost).
-Complete your grooming profile to have samples customized to your needs. When you sign up for a subscription, your profile is taken into account starting with your second box. You will either get a welcome box or a randomly selected box from the month you joined on your first.
-Lifestyle members will get an email around the tenth of the month (Aces get it one day earlier than everyone else) to select a sample in their box, select the curated box (where you know all box contents in advance, or get completely surprised and know none of the items in the box.
-Get 1 point per dollar spent for every item in the Birchbox Shop. Points are valid for 6 months. Every 10 points you redeem gives a $1 credit to spend on anything other than your monthly box fee.
-Spend $300 a year for Aces status. This includes what you spend on your subscription. I am on the $10 a month plan, so I only need to spend an extra $180 a year to qualify. Aces get: 1.3 points per dollar spent, free shipping on all orders, free expedited shipping with a $100 purchase, priority customer service, Ace exclusive promos, surprises (in GWP form), and early access to sample choice for subscriptions. The better samples tend to “sell out,” so this is an excellent perk. Of course, regular members can usually send a referral link to a friend to get it a day early, too, but Aces do not have to do anything. Almost all points count toward Aces status. The only ones I am aware of that do not are the “I’m sorry” points. If you use a promo code for bonus points, the bonus points will count toward your Ace status. Your membership is valid from the moment you spend $300 through the end of the following year.
–Birchbox codes tend to recycle, so it may be hard to keep track of whether you’ve used a code or not. Each code only works once per account. If a “new” code will not work for you, there is a chance you used it in the past. Discounts do not work on subscription purchases (unless the code is expressly for subscriptions). Look for free product or point offers on those.
-Add a 2 piece Mystery sample pack with a $35 purchase. No code required. Just click the add to cart button. This can be combined with any code! As long as your subscription order is over $35, you can add this.
