Zagat & Birchbox Shopping Spree Contest

Birchbox is all about bringing you the best when it comes to
makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and hair care. They're about knowing what works for you and knowing where to get it. Which is why they’re excited to be partnering with Zagat on a new contest in celebration of their NYC Shopping Survey!

We’re trusting you to let Zagat know the best (or worst) places to shop in NYC for all your shopping needs: from blue jeans and jewelry to cheese and chocolate. And we know shopping can be hard work! 

The Prize:
One grand-prize winner will receive a $2,000 shopping spree and a free year’s subscription to Birchbox!

Five second-prize winners will also receive a one-year subscription to Birchbox.

How It Works:
How do you get such an awesome reward, you ask? Easy — just vote in Zagat’s New York City Shopping Survey by rating and reviewing the retail and gourmet food shops you’ve visited in the past year. By completing the survey, you’ll also be eligible to receive a free copy of the New York City Shopping Survey or New York City Food Lover’s Guide when they are published later this year.
  1. Fill out the registration form above by February 20th. You must complete the registration before any of your survey responses are eligible in this contest.
  2. Go to to view and vote on a retail or gourmet food shop included in the NYC Shopping Survey on their Quality, Display, Service and Estimated Cost.
  3. Each quality review you write will be judged as a new entry. We’ll go through all the reviews you write during the contest period and give them points. If you’re wondering what we’re looking for in a quality review, here are a few things to consider:
    • Originality – how creative or original is your review style?
    • Capturing the spirit of the place – how well do you describe the atmosphere?
    • Unique viewpoints – do you offer a unique point of view?
    • Writing style – how well written is your review?
