Sub Box Deal: $4/Month Bulu Box Coupon

First of all, if you’re unfamiliar with Bulu Box, it’s a subscription box service that focuses on health and fitness items. You can choose between the normal Bulu Box and a variation that focuses on weight loss products.

Here’s a cheesy promotional video:

I actually found it more helpful to just read some people’s reviews of what they got in various Bulu Boxes – here’s a couple that I looked at:

My Subscription Addiction Bulu Box Reviews

Anyhow, I’ve never personally received a Bulu Box before because for me, $10 a month for mostly samples (though it looks like they do toss in some hefty gift cards every so often) just isn’t quite worth it. I love trying new supplements and workout products, it’s true, but the $10 price point just seemed a bit too much for what was given.


However, today Amazon Local put up a Bulu Box coupon deal, which brings the price down a LOT and made Bulu Box finally something I could justify trying out!

Basically, it’s a prepaid voucher for your choice of subscription lengths:
$15 for 3 months (so $5 per box)
$29 for 6 months ($4.83 per box)
$49 for 12 months ($4.08 per box)

Once you purchase via Amazon Local, you’re instantly given a voucher that you can go to the Bulu website, pick your box, and apply the code in place of any payment info (they don’t take your credit card info or anything, so you don’t have to worry about auto rebills). Easy peasy.

Now, at $4 per month I can totally see the value. So I’ve personally grabbed the 12 month voucher, but I thought I’d be nice and pass it on just in case anyone else has, like me, been kinda curious about Bulu but holding off due to the normal price.

Don’t worry, I plan on reviewing my boxes when I get them! I selected the weight loss variety since I’m trying to lose about ten pounds right now. My metabolism is total crap so I pretty much have to lose weight slooooowly because when I calculated anything more than a 1/2 pound loss per week, it would spit out something like 800 calories per day. Uh… no bueno. So we’ll see if Bulu can deliver any secret weapons on that front!

Allure August Giveaways: Free Stuff! Free Stuff!

So, Allure is one of the few magazines that I actually still subscribe to in physical form (I’ve pretty much otherwise made the jump to digital magazines and comics thanks to my Kindle) and I noticed something verrry interesting in the most recent issue. No, not just that they called Lauren Conrad a basic bitch (ouch), it’s that they’re giving away craploads of free beauty and fashion products during the month of August.

Basically, several times each day you can log in and try to win whatever product is the featured giveaway of that hour. Some of them are raffle-style, where you enter and hope for the best, others are unilateral “first [x] amount of people to sign up get this item, guaranteed” deals. You can pre-register here if you want to avoid having to madly rush to register when you’re trying to enter. Pay attention when signing up, as one of the checkboxes will subscribe you to Allure magazine! It’s not required, I just don’t want anyone accidentally subbing because they’re trying to rush through the form.

Allure August Freebies

The full calendar of available items for the Allure August giveaways can be found here. Be warned, it’s one of those shit-tastic sliders-where-every-new-image-loads-a-new-page-because-we-get-paid-by-the-page-view setups, and Allure’s website seems kind of crappily optimizes so each slider was taking me about 30 seconds to fully load (seriously, I’m sitting here reading about the Orlando Bloom/Justin Bieber fight on ONTD in between page loads – it’s that slow). Ugh, I hate how so many sites have adopted this clickbaity setup because it’s totally annoying and slow! So with that in mind, I’m listing my personal picks here – for my own reference and sanity, so I don’t have to go back to slider hell. I’ve italicized the Asian beauty products for my /r/AsianBeauty friends – I think I managed to pull all the Asian products regardless of if I’m personally going to try for them or not, but please let me know if I missed anything or forgot to italicize one.

There are 181 different giveaways, so this is just a small portion. The rest are visible at the official calendar.

The page where you enter the giveaways once they’ve gone live is here. Bookmark that ish!
