Why do people cancel Birchbox?

Founded in 2010, Birchbox was one of the first companies to enter into the innovative monthly subscription box industry. They paved the way and led the industry with many companies copying their style in future years. Despite recently cutting a lot of staff, their founder continues to press on and provide fantastic products to their millions of subscribers.

But that doesn’t mean all of their customers are over the moon with the boxes they’ve been receiving. Far from it. Many, likely thousands and thousands, have already cancelled their Birchbox subscriptions.

One of, if not the most likely, reasons people cancel Birchbox is because they end up getting a lot of the same items, or duplicates. There aren’t an unlimited number of beauty products out there, and if you’ve been subscribed to Birchbox for more than a few years, you’ll likely start receiving a few of the same things. That’s already been the case for many people who’ve ended up deciding it’s time to cancel.

Another common reason for ending a Birchbox subscription is the cost. In these modern times, monthly subscriptions are everywhere. Whether they’re digital-like Netflix, or physical like Birchbox, once you’ve signed up to a few, the monthly cost can quickly rise. And sometimes, it reaches a tipping point when it becomes too much. When that happens, some subscriptions are forced to face the chop. And in some cases, that means it’s time to cancel Birchbox.

Noom, one of the fastest-growing and fan-favorite weight management and healthy living apps, is also facing many users cancelling because of the cost. In fact, it’s often cited as the number one reason someone chooses to cancel their Noom account.

Talk to staff

Birchbox has been around for quite a few years now, and they’ve also built up a vastly loyal fan base. Distributing thousands of subscriptions boxes around the states each month.

If you’re not 100% on cancelling your subscription with them just yet, just not send their support staff a message to see if they can help you out. Send them a message on social media for a quick reply:

As a subscription box, sometimes the monthly cost of the box outweighs the benefits you get. This is often quoted as the reason many people end up cancelling Dollar Shave Club as well – one of the pioneers in the subscription box industry, and still one of the largest.
