Birchbox has released a video giving a few more details about the changes they are making to their point system. It sounds as though the points system was NOT sustainable to the company and changes were necessary to keep Birchbox moving forward.
If you missed the original post about the changed to the system, here is it:
Birchbox Point System Changes:
~Points will now be able to be spent in any increment. You will no longer have to wait until you earn 100 points ($10) to redeem them.
~Points earned will now expire 6-months after you have earned them.
~Only the first 5 samples you receive from July 11th onward will be able to be reviewed. (Points will NO LONGER be earned monthly on reviews).
All changed take effect on July 11, 2016.
What is Birchbox?
Birchbox ($10/month) offers 4-6 (sometimes more) hand-picked beauty and lifestyle samples, delivered to your door each month.
