This week, we’re talking about a topic we know you like: saving money on awesome beauty products. Ally, our amazing Ops Associate, has a guide to getting the most out of your Birchbox Points. Read on and start scoring rewards.
Here at the Birchbox Headquarters we’re always keeping score. Whose foundation is looking the most POREfessional? Whose hair looks as if was styled by Mr. Blandi himself? But mostly, we’re keeping score of our points! Points are easy to accumulate and even easier to use toward purchasing the full-size products you’re coveting. In addition to leaving feedback (which earns you 10 points per survey), there are two more key ways to earn Birchbox Points.
First, you earn points back for every dollar you spend in the Birchbox Shop. For example, if you purchased the delicious new Atelier Cologne, Ambre Nue, in our shop for $70 you would earn 70 points. This translates to a 10 percent credit back on every purchase. Buying gift subscriptions earns you points too! We pride ourselves on helping our customers spend smarter and this is one of ways we help you spend savvy. You don’t need to have a Birchbox subscription to earn or redeem points in the Shop!
Second, you can earn points by spreading the Birchbox word to your friends, coworkers, and family members through our friend referral program. Every Birchbox subscriber has a unique referral link that can be found on your ‘My Account’ page. Spread the Birchbox love via email and your social media outlets. You’ll earn 50 points for each friend who signs up for Birchbox using your referral (read: an additional $5 to spend!).
Now, the best part: spending your points! Browse the Birchbox Shop and add items to your cart. Proceed to checkout, where you’ll be prompted to enter in your credit card information. Above the credit card field you’ll see a box that you can check to apply your points. Points can only be redeemed in increments of 100. For example, if you purchase a $12 product and you have 200 Birchbox points the entire credit will be applied to the purchase. So be mindful of how you spend your well-deserved points, and remember adding a hair tie or two to your shopping cart never hurt! Also, no need to rush to spend. Points last for a year before expiring and there is no limit to how many points you can redeem at one time. Feel free to save up for a few months and redeem them all for a big purchase like a Clarisonic.
Finally, you can combine your points with current promotions for even greater savings. Enter all promotion codes while in the Shopping Cart. In the bottom left-hand corner of the page you’ll see a field titled, ‘Coupon Codes.’ Make sure to click ‘Apply Coupon’ before you proceed to the checkout! As always, if you need any additional help, further explanation, or your points simply aren’t adding up, please feel free to reach out the Birchbox customer service team.
