Birchbox now has a VIP program, yay! The best part is, I managed to get into it without even knowing about it. I got an email today saying that I had earned over 500 points in the last year which entitled me to be in the Birchbox Aces program. This includes free shipping anytime (YAY), free 2-day shipping on $100 or more, one on one consultations with discovery specialists, exclusive shop offers and early access. To kick off this program they’re offering an extra 50 points on orders of $100 or more to Aces members. The email stated that my Ace status is good untl December 31st, 2015. It shouldn’t be too hard to re-qualify though as long as they don’t raise the amount of points needed. You generally get at least 5 products per box, so if you’re a member for a year and review all of your products you should be able to qualify even if you don’t buy anything from the shop or refer anyone. I’m very excited about the free shipping part. This, plus the points, definitely gives Birchbox an edge over some of the other beauty subscriptions. Birchbox is $10 per month and you can easily earn 50 points per box in referrals…100 points = $10 to spend in their shop. So you can see how this can add up to alot of low cost or even free full sized products. If you’d like to use my referral link and get your own Birchbox, click here.
