When you join Birchbox we ask you to fill in a Beauty Profile to provide us with all the information we need to build a monthly box tailored just for you. To deepen the personalisation element for your first box you can now also add a promo code to your order to select the 5th sample in that month’s box.
If you don’t add the promo code you’ll still receive one of the available options for the 5th sample as we don’t want you to miss out. The sample you receive will still be based on your Beauty Profile but it just might not be in the shade you would have preferred to receive.
This is slightly different to how Sample Choice worked for new subscribers in the past, and is different to how it works for current subscribers. You can find more information on Sample Choice for current subscribers here.
We’ve made this change because you let us know that when signing up the original Sample Choice process wasn’t very clear and you told us you wanted more control over what products you receive in your box. We also wanted to reward the loyalty of returning Birchboxers who might not be eligible for one of our other promotions but still want to add their own special touch to their box.
This new process gives you more control in how you build your first box with us! To personalise your boxes moving forward make sure you’re opted into our Marketing emails to received your monthly pick!
A few things to note:
The code needs to be added at checkout and cannot be combined with any other promotional offers or discounts, or redeemed retrospectively. For example, if you add the Sample Choice promo code we cannot honour another promotion you may see on our website or social pages (e.g. gift with subscription, or a student discount). Sample choice is not available for the first box of your gift subscription.
