What Is the Birchbox Points Program?

When it comes to shopping, we know you have options (lots of them), which is why we’ve created a program that makes it easy and rewarding for you to find products you love.

What Are Birchbox Points?

Birchbox Points are what you earn when you shop, review samples, and refer friends. They translate into currency that can be used to purchase any full-size products in the Birchbox Shop or in our NYC store. 100 Birchbox Points equals $10, and Points can be redeemed in increments of 100.

How Do I Earn Points?

Glad you asked. It’s easy: Here are few ways to start raking in the rewards:

Get shopping.

You earn 1 Point for every $1 you spend. Buy a $15 face cream? That’s 15 points. As soon as you hit 100 Points, you’ve got $10 to spend. Pretty cool, huh?

Subscribe to Birchbox.

Not yet a subscriber? One more reason to get on board: You earn Points the minute you sign up for our monthly subscription service.
Yearly Birchbox subscription = 110 Birchbox Points
Yearly Birchbox Man subscription = 195 Points
The same goes for gift subscriptions, too! Get 30 Points for a 3-month Birchbox gift subscription; 60 Points for 6-month Birchbox gift subscription, and so on.

Review samples.

Every month, subscribers can review samples and earn 10 Birchbox Points per sample. That’s up to 50 Points ($5) for Birchbox and up to 60 Points ($6) for Birchbox Man—that’s a fast way to earn back the cost of your monthly subscription!

Refer friends.

Spread the word about Birchbox, and you’ll earn 50 Points ($5) toward a future purchase for every friend who joins. Start referring now.

How Many Points Do I Have?

You can always check your Points balance on your account page.

How Do I Redeem Points?

As soon as you hit 100 Points, you unlock $10 to spend on Birchbox.com or in our NYC store. Points can be used to purchase full-size products. If you come to our store, just tell us your email address and we’ll redeem your Points for you. If you’re shopping online, you redeem them in the checkout process.

Simply add items to your shopping cart and hit the “Checkout” button (if you’re not already signed in, the next screen will prompt you to sign into your account). Continue through the checkout process. When you get to the Payment Information section, you’ll see a box that says “Use my rewards points.” When you click it, your Points will be deducted in increments of 100. Note: You must have at least 100 Points before you can start spending, and Points are always deducted in increments of 100. For example, if you have 200 Points and your order is $15, you will be charged 200 Points. Points are not redeemable for cash.

Do Points Expire?

Points expire one year from the date they were first earned. Your account page links to your Points history, which displays the dates when your Points were accrued.
