How do you use the stylemint credit? I tried going to stylemint.com/redeem and after putting in all of the information it says "unable to redeem gift card". I tried putting items in my cart and redeeming on the payment page under gift card & promo code which didn't work either. 

 

This is so frustrating! The boxes continue to be disappointing especially when there is only one item in the box I actually wanted to use & it won't let me. Well actually I wanted to use the doughnut mix as well but I don't have a doughnut pan.icon_sad.gif  I signed up for this box from the beginning when the value was going to be around $150 which made it worth spending $38(w/tax). That was until I received the box and found out they had changed that to $100 but kept the cost at $35 +tax. I kept hoping each month it would get better but it seems to be getting worse and I'm lucky if I use 1 or 2 items at most.

 

I hope everyone that ordered the Luxury box for $100 at least gets something good since that is a lot of money!

weird mine says it's 2.4 pounds and i think thats what the other girls have said. I'm happy i finally got imy shipping email but not that excited about the box contents but oh well. can't wait for decembers box. that should be awesome. hopefully! lol

post #339 of 834

I received my box today. :) I wasn't expecting it until Monday. Personally, I love what I got. A lot of women are saying they're disappointed in the must have box this month. Maybe I'm happy because it's my first one. Then again, I'm on a cooking and baking kick so I'm happy with what YumSugar editors selected in that category.

 

I can't seem to redeem my style mint code. Did anyone else have this issue?

post #340 of 834

...and I absolutely love the vanilla lip balm. It smells so good and it feels so silky on my lips. Best lip balm I own now.

 

Did I mention how beautiful the bracelet is? You can even wear it as a necklace. It goes with anything.

post #341 of 834

I got my box today, too! The bracelet didn't fit me, but I really like it, so I might go the crafty route and try to extend it like the previous poster did. I plan on making donut muffins with my donut mix! That way I'll just use a muffin pan that I already have and they'll be fun and cute. The lip balm I got is actually not vanilla. I got cassis in a black pot. It is delicious and fruity. 

 

I actually needed to the CanvasPop code because I was going to get a poster sized print for my son for Christmas. I've already placed that order and I bought this at Stylemint with my code to get the Ridgeway T for free:  

 

 

700

 

I probably won't use the yoga DVD even though I should or the spices, but this was well worth $35 to me! 

post #342 of 834

Received my box today, it's eh. icon_neutral.gif I was sucked in seeing how awesome the September box was, but now into my second box I'm not sure I'll continue after December. On a positive note I also received my full size shampoo and conditioner today as well that was promised from last month's box! icon_cheesygrin.gif

Weird how the bracelet hasn't fit most people.  I wonder if that's why we are getting them?  I like the crafty suggestions on expanding it or creating a choker, so maybe I will have to do the same if it doesn't fit.

 

How cool that they are sending out different lip balm flavors.  I will be happy with any except the peach one. (Blech!  I drank too much peach schnapps once and experienced this "wonderful" peach vomit flavor for many hours)  So please, Pop Sugar, NO PEACH!!!!!

post #344 of 834

Yes, thank you here too!  It has like three inches to go before closing on my wrist (I knew my wrists were on the braw side but I didn't know they were huge.)  I was so disappointed when I thought I'd have to give it away to someone with tiny wrists.  

 

Does anyone know if PopSugar usually fixes stuff like this if there were no easy solution to enlarge the bracelet?

This is the first time they have sent something so size-specific, so there's no standard procedure, at least as far as I'm aware.  I think the only thing that can really be done is email them to let them know that this was a FAIL.

post #346 of 834

I'll be honest that I'm kind of disappointed by some aspects of this box, particularly the mix (I'm a pretty healthy eater, so that's going to be gifted to the mother-in-law) and the DVD.  I already own the DVD and I wasn't blown away by it.  The other stuff I'm excited about, though!

I'm always looking for more yoga DVD's, and I don't get my first popsugar box until december... If you want to trade for anything on my trade list, I'd be super thrilled!

post #348 of 834

I will get my box on Monday. I just saw an ad for bed bath and beyond they have a doughnut pan for 9.99. but yes, it would be nice if one were included with the mix. I do not usually eat doughnuts, so it would be a waste to buy a pan for one time use. all the other items i am fine with - I would never decide to purchase these individual items separately for the prices they are offered, but in this box for $20 its fine with me.

post #349 of 834

Hi everyone! I'm new to makeuptalk.com and Popsugar but found this forum when I was researching if I should subscribe to this box. I just received the November box (my first) and I really liked it! I just redeemed the stylemint credit for a mystery box (free with the credit) which is neat because I get another box to look forward to. 

 

I made a youtube video revealing the box if you're interested in seeing what we get:

I hope that this trend doesn't continue with popsguar! However, they were extremely helpful after sending them an email, and sent me the missing items no questions asked. The only comment I have is that it took a long time for my missing items to be sent (about a month) and no tracking number was ever given, either. 

I had an item missing once and they replied to my email very quickly and told me that they would send the replacement but it might take a few weeks.  I got an email the next week with a tracking number, and then about 4 days later the package shipped.

I really want to apply this to a jewelmint purchase, though. I know credits can't be combined w/other promos/sales and JM has a promo going on now.

 

I redeemed my code and then checked out all the sites ... I wound up ordering from Jewelmint and was able to apply their promo code and got two $29.99 items for my 1 credit.

post #352 of 834
My box's weight also said 3.8 pounds per the shipping notice! Weird!
post #353 of 834

Aw man! I tried to use the code on jewelmint to get the two items and it would not let me! I am happy with the necklace I picked out though, so still worth it!!
 

post #354 of 834

anybody know if they have free shippping on the stylemint website?

post #355 of 834

Got my box, and while it most def is worth more than my $35, it was just okay for me. The bracelet fit PERFECTLY but it really isn't something I would have bought but I'm glad I get to try something new. And add me to the list of a missing item. My Mor lip balm was not in the box & that was the one thing I was looking forward to lol. :\ Loooove the ____Mint code! I am a JewelMint junkie! And so glad for the CanvasPop code. My kitty died recently & I would love a big kitty picture for my wall. ;_; I am looking forward to making the doughnuts and yeah, I don't have a pan but I do have muffin tins & a bundt pan so I shall experiment! :D Yay for spices! Always on the look out for new spices to try. The Yoga DVD is a dud though.

I won't compare this to my September box because personally, I expect different & new things every month & I love trying new stuff. But I def agree that if they send something like the bracelet, they have to make sure it can be sized accordingly without having to buy or add anything to it. A wrap around was a bad idea and they could have done a nice, simple one charm bracelet that could have been extended on its own. Here's to a kickass December box! :D

post #356 of 834

My box was in my area and got shipped back to the post office because of a delivery problem....grrr...now i have to contact my local post office tomorrow.

Is this the BOGO for new customers?

 

I know that I can apply the credit and get 2 pieces for 15 bucks (which is still a great deal) but I'm trying to control the urge until next month when 1. they'll have new pieces and 2. I'll be forced to buy anyway. Plus I'm hopeful that they'll have some type of black friday sale (and maybe even another BOGO free sale for existing customers) by which it will be totally justified to break my pact and purchase more pieces early icon_twisted.gif.

post #358 of 834

hi everyone! this is my first post too and i just got my november box.  i honestly was a little disappointed, it seemed less "full" than the last 2 (actually, tbh i was disappointed in like every mail service i get - ipsy & birchbox i just cancelled, still holding onto beauty bar but also mega-disappointed this month).  granted the gorjana bracelet was gorgeous but everything else was kind of eh.  the donut mix is nice (if you have a donut pan) but most of the other stuff i am eh about.  i am hoping december's will include something like the previous months (a scarf, etc) but i am glad we did not get a book this time! i still haven't even gotten to any of the ones from previous months.

post #359 of 834

Since Stylemint had me enter my credit card number to validate my code from Popsugar, do I need to call and cancel so they don't charge me for a credit next month? I've never used Stylemint (nothing really catches my eye but I'll totally use the credit!) I just don't want to be billed for another credit through them next month.

I hope everyone that ordered the Luxury box for $100 at least gets something good since that is a lot of money!

That happened to me...but it was because I typed in a wrong letter with the code....so triple check that your code is correct. (some of the letters are a little hard to read, like the "J" which looks like an "I" at a quick glance. Especially when the letter spacing is non existent!)
