This is the best part of the box so I'm hoping to make it work. My sisters fit but she even said she wished it was larger- she has the most itty bitty wrists- she always has to get 3 links taken out of her watches when she gets a new one. I'm really not trying to complain but I don't think that the main item in the box should have been so small that the average size wrist couldn't wear it.
What do you guys think about the size of the bracelet?? Am I being too nit picky- I really am not that kinda gal!

 

I don't think you are being nit picky about the bracelet - it appears that several of us have wrists that the bracelet does not fit. I emailed Popsugar about the bracelet size. I very nicely asked that they please reconsider sending size specific items in the future. It is disappointing to the consumer to receive an item that does not fit. This works both ways. If they sent a bracelet designed for an 8" wrist, it would be just as disappointing.

I agree - not even close for me - and I'm not a crafty person - so going to a craft store to try and "fix"a $50 bracelet does not appeal to me!

Will I be billed every month for redeeming the credit on Jewelmint?

I think so.  I plan on calling and cancelling as soon as my order ships...  If you look at the FAQ, it tells you they charge every month unless you "skip" betwen the 1-5 EVERY month!  Dont need to deal with that.

Oh look the November Must Have Box Reveal email from Pop Sugar just went out. 

 

Kinda wish I had my box by now....guess I'll read the email and see what I'm getting...if it ever shows up.

I guess jewelmint is down. I used the buy one get one free with my credit so I'm able to get two free items. I just hope I don't get charged $29.99 every month.

you need to call and cancel your membership after your order shiips. i talked to someone in their customer serviice about this

Are there still good stuff to buy in any mint store? I havent received my box yet. frown.gif The ones I wanted were all sold out :(

post #462 of 834
I don't think you're being picky either. I was really upset about the bracelet until I fixed it. Last night I went Michael's and got a pack of jump rings for $2.99 and fixed it in 10 minutes with a small pair of pliers (tweezers would work too). I'm not very crafty and I promise this was an easy fix:D

Popsugar knows one of our concerns about the donuts and put this on their blog "The box does call for a doughnut pat, but don't worry — we tested it out in a muffin tin and got amazing round doughnut holes (which went great with ice cream for dessert, just as a tip)."

I think they put up new stuff the first of the month. So we might get better stuff Dec 1.

 

And don''t forget to cancel by the 6th! Or else we will be billed the next month. I like how we all reminded each other for the pop-up pantry last time, so its good to remind each other for this too.

 

For anyone that loves scarves, they have some up on style mint. They are kinda ugly to me though. (I know all of us loves scarves as seen by our love for that Brokedown scarf from September).

The bracelet is leather and leather stretches. I have fairly big wrists, but after a bit of stretching it fits great! It needs to be snug or it will slide around. I really like this box and am using everything in it.

Thanks for giving me confidence about the mini project- I'm planning on picking it up tomorrow and having mom help me on Thanksgiving.

Thanks everyone for your comments, you gals rock!!,

I saw that as well and laughed a little to myself.
post #468 of 834

i am so happy!! i subscriber to the intimint emails a while back and ALMOST ordered this long john romper when it first came out for $60!!! but i decided against it cause it was too pricey to spend on sleepwear! ha! anyway i used my first code to get that (combined with the $10 off code) and scored it for $20. I am really happy. since i got two codes I actually think I am going to use the next for my mom, and get her something for christmas!!

 

and YES i will need help remembering when to cancel by!! someone said the 6th? i might have to cancel two separate memberships because since i got two codes i used two different emails to use them (that was the only way i got them to work). anyway what should i say when i cancel? that i just wanted to use the credit? HA i always feel so weird doing these things! i've been "skipping" my julep box for almost a year now cause i don't want to have to call them!!

 

i was nervous that the bracelet was going to be identical to the one i already have based on the pics i saw but the one we got if i am correct is burgundy. that is at least what they say it is in the booklet we got and thats what mine looks like. plus this one is much smaller than my original one. the one i posted a pic of previously has a wider band and larger chain link! so thats great i have two different ones now!!

 

:) 

post #469 of 834

ahh i used my code on jewelmint as well in conjunction with the bogo code! excited to get my necklaces :D

post #470 of 834
Y my code wont work any tips for stylemint? I went to www.stylemint.com/redeem says unable to use card
post #471 of 834

Estimated delivery for my Nov PopSugar box.. SATURDAY?!  WHAT?  I'm going BONKERS over here!  I'm in California, I could DRIVE to where they ship it from faster than waiting on the mail (which for some reason sends it way down south, then back north again, then back down south and FINALLY the central coast).  ARGHHH111!!!!!1

post #472 of 834

Ugh. Just spent an hour on the Stylemint site picking out what I wanted to spend my credit on, only to have my credit deemed not valid. I tried going to stylemint.com/redeem and redeeming as a GC and as a promo code...no dice. I've double and triple checked the numbers, and still nothing. I saw a few people had this issue as well. Anyone get this resolved?

post #473 of 834

I went the JewelMint route. What's interesting is that when I look at the 'skip month' section for JM, it says I'm not yet a monthly member, so my credit card will not be charged. But when I look at the skip month for SM, it says 'if you skip or make a purchase between the 1st and 5th of the month", blah, blah, blah you won't be charged for a credit. I'm guessing redeeming the code on SM set up the monthly membership there rather than where I redeemed it, on JM.

Did you just pull on it a few times? Heat it with a hair dryer first?

I think it's because we are allowed to use the StyleMint code on JewelMint since they made the two subsidiaries part of the "cross mint all-access pass " thingy they have until the end of December. (that's what I get from the FAQs). So we are signing up for membership with SM but the company is allowing us to use it to connecting companies including JM. This also makes me wonder if it won't work on HomeMint which is not part of the "cross mint all-access pass."

I am officially happy with this box. I used the credit for ShoeMint and then a discount code which put my total to 9.99 instead of paying 79.98 for full price.

If anyone is wondering, I redeemed the credit on stylemint site but used the credit for ShoeMint.

Try using it in the gift card box.  Thats what I did and it worked for me.

post #477 of 834

Hey friends, I just logged on to stylemint to check the status of my order and it says "You have not purchased any products yet."  Though I did purchase a mystery box.  Is anyone else seeing this??

post #478 of 834

FYI the mystery box is here

unless they're all gone.

post #479 of 834

For those who the bracelet doesn't fit - how long is the bracelet you received?   I love the fit of mine but it is nearly 20" long (including the clasp parts) so I was wondering if some bracelets were shorter than the 19" - 20" specified?

 

I don't like when they introduce the box contents on the website before I have gotten my box (happened to me last month!)  LOL

post #480 of 834

I just got my box yesterday. It's just annoying that it takes so long for me to get it when they're on the West coast and I am too. I also experienced what some others have where the box made it to my metro area and then got shipped somewhere else (Washington for me) before it came back and actually got delivered.
