A new Limited Edition Box Birchbox, the Luxe Beauty Box is available today. Limited Edition Boxes are my favorite items to purchase from Birchbox. These are a mixture of full and sample sized items that usually fit a specific box theme. All boxes have a value far greater than the cost so they are a great deal when the items you want to keep exceed the value of what you’re paying. Better boxes sell out quickly, but the ones that linger will occasionally pop up in the sale section for 30% off. Aces sometimes get 40% off on sale items. Predicting which ones will sell out is not always easy, so I buy the ones I really want close to the release date. If you’re on the fence because of price, wait it out.
It was back in stock on 08-16-18 but gone again on 08-20-18.
When I started writing this article yesterday, the Travel-Ready Treasures box was still in stock. The article was mostly written, so I decided to publish it anyway. It seems like the boxes are running out of inventory faster than usual. That or the last two boxes I received were in high demand. This is another one I originally was not going to purchase. There are a lot of deluxe items in this, and I have more samples than I can use in a lifetime. I ultimately decided to grab it, because I think the bag is cute and saw enough value in some of the pieces I did not already own. Over a week after the box allegedly shipped, it was still saying USPS Currently Awaiting Package. Thankfully, I contacted Birchbox to see what happened, because almost three weeks later USPS is still “awaiting” the original package. Birchbox did send me a replacement, and that is the one I am reviewing now. Who knows, if USPS ever finds my lost package, Birchbox may have one more brand new kit to sell.
Birchbox released a new limited edition box today. This box is included in the Valentine’s Day Shop offers that work with the discount code VD20 through 02/03/18. I was already going to pick it up, but I was thankfully distracted. When I went to purchase it this afternoon, I noticed Birchbox placed 50 surprise points for being an Ace in my account. For those looking to track 48-hour 50 point surprise offers, I’ve got you covered. An offer for all subscribers went out on 12/08/17. Offers for Aces went out on 12/31/16, 03/24/17, and 06/28/17. The offers appear to release randomly, but I will let you know if I ever notice any patterns. I take advantage of these points when possible, because there is no purchase minimum to redeem them. As an Ace, you also get free shipping on any purchase.
It says it is a 48-hour surprise. The official email did not come until the next morning, and it says this offer is valid through the 27th. That means those of us who were lucky enough to stumble on it before the announcement got more than 48 hours to redeem them. If you are an Ace and looking for something to spend your 50 points on, I suggest this box!
