Well friends, I figured it was time to get excited about November's box! biggrin.gif Do you think they'll start to ship boxes earlier again this month because they're sold out already?
post #2 of 834

I think it will be around the same. But I have some wishes -

 

Dear Popsugar,

 

I would like a crossbody bag, cashmere gloves, a nice perfume, an Illamasqua highlighter powder and Nuxe dry oil which you mentioned in your Bellasugar video, a necklace or a bracelet would be nice, too, as well as a cute Lilly Pulitzer agenda for 2013.

 

xoxo your devoted subscriber.

 

PS the book you sent me in October will last me a while. so I'd raher have no more :-)

 

lol!

 

So what are your wishes for this month's box?

I was so excited to hear that they shipped early , but I learned not get to excited because I still haven't got my box and seems like it may not even get here tomorrow! But it is nice to see other spoilers smile.gif I am really loving the books in the boxes! I have finished my perks book and look foward to this as they are books my family would buy!

I would LOVE it if we got the november box early. It's going to be my first and I am really anxious  to experiance all the hype and disappointments  like y'all lol But really even if just 1 or 2 things equal what we paid for the boxes that makes me happy.

If I have monthly auto renew  does that mean that I receive a November Box?

Have you been receiving boxes thus far? I ask because if you signed up for a monthly subscription today, for example, your monthly boxes wouldn't begin until January as both November and December are sold out. If you signed up before those month's boxes were sold out, though, then you are guaranteed a November box. You might also be able to log into your account at musthave.popsugar.com to confirm. Hope this helps!

What day do they bill you? All it says is Nov 2012

post #9 of 834

mine still shows next bill in Oct 2012. don't have access to my internet banking now so wondering did they bill me for Oct box yet? I received it a few days ago... anyone has the same thing showed on their account page?

No worries, that's how it's supposed to be - you won't see November until you're billed for it, generally. I have a 3-month sub right now (Oct/Nov/Dec) and the only active month showing on that sub is October. What does it say under "Next Payment" on your Subscriptions tab?

They used to bill shortly before the 25th of the month, if I remember correctly, because the 25th was the ship date. I'm not sure when they'll bill now on a monthly subscription because they're sold out of boxes until January and shipped before the 25th this month. Maybe email them at musthave@popsugar.com? They're generally pretty quick to respond back.

They ran cards on the 15th this month, in case that helps.
post #14 of 834

I have just the monthly, not the three month and it's showing Oct 2012.

Honestly, I don't think you're going to find good codes right now. They're way too popular at the moment to need to bother. I've been urging anyone thinking about signing up to just go ahead and order now.

I was sorta thinking that.  Thanks for the advice :)

Oh, I would love a really cute agenda or pocket calendar for 2012. Good idea.

I would also love a bracelet. I think books are wonderful. I also like getting chips and candy and cookies in the box. I agree about a nice perfume, only I doubt we could all agree on one. I like spicy orientals, in the main, and golden ambery vanillas. I think stud earrings would be great. I also love highlighter, although I have a lot of it, I always love more. I've been loving the home fragrance they've been sending us.

Thanks for the info! With Thanksgiving this month, I just need to make sure that there's enough for all my expenses this month AND for this sub :)

Their website says you must cancel 15 days before the end of the month to avoid getting charged, so they run cards after approximately the 15th or so.

I think it would be cool to get another accessory like a necklace this month and more yummy food.  I don't want anymore home fragrances. I know I'm in the minority but I don't like candles...

post #22 of 834

I really love the scarf they sent last month. I wore it to work and got tons of compliments on it. It's nice because it's not so thick that you can't wear it with business attire, but it also adds something nice to a regular jeans and shirt outfit too.

I know this is in regards to the October Box, but I wanted to share anyway. I contacted the company about receiving the smaller size hair products and suggested that if they were sending out various candle scents that they could try to customize them to the subscriber. I felt a little irritated when I received the response because they straight up lied about the scents. Not really a big deal because they may have just not known, but it did bother me a little anyway. Here was their response :

Hi Jacinta,Thanks for your email! Please know that everyone is getting the same curated items in their October box, but unfortunately, we received different sample sizes for the shampoo from one of our vendors. We didn't want any of our customers to have wait longer for their Oct. box to arrive, so the sample sizes were sent as is. Please let us know if you would prefer the full size instead and we will be sure to get it to you (this may take a few weeks as we are currently waiting on a shipment). As for the candle, everyone received the same scent. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused and hope you love your October box!Have a wonderful day!POPSUGAR Support


Also, why wouldn't I want the full size that everyone else got when I took the time to write in about it? Lol. That's like asking someone if they want $1,000. Well, duh. Haha. I am still a fan of Popsugar. Just thought I would share.

Its only the 6th and I can't wait to receive this box. Has anyone started reading the book from October? I'm still on my 50 shades of grey kick but looking forward to the new read!!

This has been how my dealings with customer service have gone as well. It takes a couple emails to get things handled. They've always come through in the end, but not without work on my part. The samples weren't a huge deal to me, but if they offer to replace them with larger sizes you shouldn't have to ask twice.

Were two different sizes sent out? I totally missed that!

post #29 of 834
I actually don't care that I got the sample size and not full size shampoo and conditioner. It went straight to my donation pile as I don't use drugstore brands on my hair. I'm perfectly happy that they didn't waste postage and increase cost and decrease value of things I want just to send a bigger size of something I don't use after the box was shipped. I'm also happy they didn't delay the boxes to give us bigger sizes. They say they will make it right: we can send them an email and request big shampoo if we want it. The one time I needed to contact their customer service they were fabulous and I got a quick response. I'm happy with Popsugar.

I wonder if they are going to try to tie in this month's box with Thanksgiving in any way. Like, maybe they'll give us something for entertaining, or something for use in the kitchen?
