POPSUGAR MUST HAVE - DECEMBER 2012 - Page 6

post #151 of 1046

I cancelled December after being mad about how they changed things on November. I checked their policy and apparently its anytime they want, they can charge. Since its on or around the 7th according to their policy. FYI anyone who wants to cancel in the future, you have to cancel before the 15th of the previous month. You can still do it after by asking but their official policy is 15th the previous month....

 

I might come back to Popsugar in a few months after forgetting that I was mad at them. LOL. I can't wait to see what you all get and for the first time I don't have to pretend to avoid spoilers!

I wasn't ready (I rotate my debit cards) and now my box has a billing hold again :( I've had a struggle to give them my money every month! I love the box but these charges whenever they want are getting me down.

They seem to like sending out vouchers to websites that have monthly services (popsugar, stylemint).  I wonder how long until they send out one for birchbox or another makeup sub?  I just saw another one of their "lists" today, this one was 44 gift ideas for the girls on your list and one was the Birchbox Home Box.

My tracking is processing too. I didn't even get a tracking number until after the box got to me last month. I hope that doesn't happen again this month. I'm way too excited about it.

I was charged for my box today, I can't wait for a tracking number, I hope this month's box is really good! I've been sticking with it in hopes of getting a box as awesome as September's was. I hate that I missed out on that scarf!!!

I got my stylemint mystery box today and i like it! I got a tan and black striped henley and a turquoise tank. Haven't tried on the tank yet but the henley fits great!
My third item was a pair of white sunglasses. Kind of out of season but they are cute and i always lose or break mine so another pair is always great!

I was actually one of the winners for a 6 month subscription thing they had on youtube. So I am excited to have 6 months to decide if it is worth subscribing or not.

 

The one thing I don't like though is that I don't have an account to log in to and I don't know if I will be sent a tracking number or not. :( Anyone know if gifted subscriptions receive shipping info each month?

I canceled my subscription last month to rationalize getting the luxury box. And because I wasn't super impressed with the October/November boxes. Now that December and January are sold out, I'm having to really restrain myself from resubscribing. That whole scarcity marketing thing works really well on me. Not to mention that it's a little like gambling - I know the next hand/box will be a winner! But I know I'll be happy about unsubscribing if I'm not happy with the luxury box. And if I am happy with it, I'm sure it won't kill me to wait until February for the next regular box. Right? Right?!

I figured I'd rather just pay the $35/mo (well, I got the three months for $75 deal, so I don't have to handle full price yet) than risk missing an awesome box :P  Honestly for all these boxes (except July, which totally does not count) I'd pay at least $20 if I knew what was in them in advance, so I don't think I'm really losing anything by staying a subscriber.  I don't think I could live with the regret if I cancelled!

 

Now, do I really need a box of random stuff once a month that I arguably would not discover/buy if left to my own devices?  That is a whole different discussion.

I have ended up really liking some of the things that I was initially 'meh' about. For instance, those socks they sent us are really cool. And the bracelet, I wasn't sure if it really fit my style, until I wore it a few times.

 

Here is my Popsugar dream December box, not a prediction, just what I wish it would contain:

 

a calendar or planner

stud earrings made out of some high quality metal

something warm, like a hat or gloves, or a throw

something snacky, like gourmet chocolate

aromatherapy for stress relief or relaxation

 

Bring on the spoilers!

post #162 of 1046

Mine says it shipped yesterday, but the tracking still says processing and I didn't get a ship notification.  IDK.

 

And I would love a planner. A Moleskine seems trendy enough for them to include.

post #164 of 1046

Hey Ladies! I am also subscribed and my first box will be the December box so I am pleased and excited to see it shipped out yesterday. I kept putting off subbing this one due to price but after looking in the past boxes I knew I wanted this box. Can't wait to see what is inside and sharing in the excitement with you all. I agree a planner and some nice gourmet chocolates would be amazing. My planner would have choc. fingerprints on it within 5 minutes of opening the box. haha. Hoping the shipping info updates by tomorrow so we can see when the boxes will arrive. smile.gif

my previous two boxes' tracking number only poped up about 10 days after the so-called 'shipped on' date, and another 4-5 days before I eventually got my hands on them. I guess I belong to the last batch of shipment because I'm from OR...

They still have 142 mens luxury boxes left. If they put it on sale i just might buy it! I wish they would!

The "shipped" date is usually when they billed your card.  It will say "processing" until it actually ships - when things go right, the "processing" will change to a tracking number and you will get an email telling you that it shipped.  however, sometimes people receive the box before they ever get tracking info (and their account never updates on the PopSugar site).

I would totally buy my bf a limited edition box if they were discounted. I'm praying for a promo code to pop up!! Come on pop sugar.. I'm ready biggrin.gif

It hasn't shippped. When it's processing, it's being prepared for shipping. Once it actually ships you get your tracking number. I've argued with customer service over their verbage countless times!

I so want a tracking number frown.gif

Just so you know - even after you get your tracking you won't know when it will arrive pretty much until it arrives. PopSugar uses FedEx Smart Post, which tells you where the box is, but not when it will get to you. VERY annoying! In my experience it always takes 7 days to get to me from the ship date, but it varies depending on where you live and is notoriously slow!

I got a tracking number for something yesterday. I don't know if it's for this though.. but I have no idea what it is for since I'm only expecting this and Love with Food.

Did you / have you subscribed to Glossybox? A lot of us received an odd shipping notice yesterday as well - we're trying to figure out details over in the GB November thread!

Nope. Is the tracking from sselect?

Was it the US fulfillment thing? I got that too and I recently signed up for Love With Food. I can't figure out what that's for though.
