How to Use Birchbox Points

Don’t Leave Birchbox Points on the Table

Birchbox Points are easy to accumulate and even easier to use toward purchasing full-size products in the Shop. And like our savvy subscribers, Birchbox staffers have developed Points-saving and -spending strategies. More on that later. First: a refresher course.

Earn Points as You Purchase

You earn one Birchbox Point for every dollar you spend in the Birchbox Shop, and 10 Points equals $1. This translates to a 10 percent credit back on every purchase. For example, if you purchased Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Petite Cologne Absolue—excellent choice!—in our Shop for $80, you would earn 80 Points.

Get Points by Referring Your Friends

You also earn Birchbox Points when you spread the Birchbox word to friends, coworkers, and family members through our friend referral program. Every Birchbox subscriber has a unique referral link that can be found on the My Account page. You’ll get 50 Points for each friend who signs up for Birchbox using your referral. That’s an additional $5 for you to spend!

Win Points by Reviewing Your Samples

Birchbox subscribers rack up Points just for sharing their opinions about the samples they received in their monthly Birchbox! Here’s how: Go to your Box page, click a product, then click “Write a Review.” (Your Box page gets updated every month around the 10th with new products to survey.) For each feedback form you submit, you’ll receive 10 Birchbox Points. Even if you weren’t totally jazzed about a sample you can still earn Points to spend on full-size products you love.

Combine Your Points with Extra Offers

You can combine your Points with current promotions for even greater savings. Enter any promotion code in the Shopping Cart, in the field titled Coupon Codes in the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Make sure to click Apply Coupon before you proceed to checkout.

Spend Points Strategically

Seasoned Birchbox subscribers know that Points can only be redeemed in increments of 100 (100 points = $10). What happens if your total comes to $21? Before you shrug your shoulders in defeat and cash in 300 points, head over to our $25 and Under category and pick up a little something extra for yourself. Pro tip: Sort the category by price so you can see which products will help you reach your point maximum without going over.
