Just an FYI you're not supposed to dry stylemint tees. I've never dried mine and heard a few people who said that they dried theirs and they shrunk significantly.

Not a bad offer i plan on making my purchase tongiht. Happy Shopping
i tried that last night you can only use one code. so either the popsugar or the cybermonday, you cannot use both. if u somehow get it to woke let me know...lol

Stylemint now has 70% your first item with code MONSM60  or 50% off your total order with no code

Jewelmint and Stylemint totally ticking me off.  I bought two mystery boxes from Stylemint - they were exactly the same and naturally there's nothing they can do about that because they don't accept returns from Stylemint mystery boxes, period (ok, I'll suck that one up, my mistake for buying two).. and Jewelmint charged me twice for one order and they were snotty and rude to me on the phone and refused to do anything about that either!  What the heck?  I totally just wasted a lot of money on this and I feel like a schmuck right now.

I'm kinda not happy with stylemint right now either. I used my code and ended up getting 2 shirts that were on clearance. So my out of pocket was 1 cent. Today they called to verify  the 1 cent charge. WTF? The lady on the phone was extremely rude too.I will not be doing anymore mint business after I get my 2 shirts.So annoying because it looks like they have good deals.

When I read about the mystery boxes, it said that they guaranteed that you could get up to five boxes and there would be no exact duplicates, though there could be same styles but different colors. If you had duplicates (and you ordered them on the same account) I think they will take care of you. They were great with me when I had a question today. If I like the items they send, I will likely keep up the subscription. The lady I spoke with took time to make sure that I had a solution and that all of my questions were answered.

Unfortunately, I think I know why they called to verify this:  Credit card thieves/fraudsters are known for making very small test transactions like this to see whether your card is valid before they use it to buy lots of expensive things.  This transaction probably tripped their fraud-detection alarm.  It's actually a consumer-protection measure.

my credit card always does that, exactly what you said is what they told me too, its not the mint's site fault

Actually I googled stylemint mystery box duplicates, and found this message on facebook:  

 
Lara StyleMint Hey Kathryn! There is a cap on how many bags you can purchase. Customers are only able to purchase two bags -- this way we can guarantee that you do not receive the same items within each bag. So, if you purchase two bags you will not receive duplicate items. :):)

I know that's from July but shouldn't that still be the case?  The lady I talked to on the phone was super snotty about it, and said "Well you know that's a risk you take in buying more than one mystery box" and I said "I would have thought you'd have policies in place to prevent duplicates since I'm sure many people want to buy more than one mystery box", to which she said "Yeah no, there's nothing we can do".  I'll hit them up via facebook privately to see if they'll be more willing to help me out!  I do like the shirts I got, but not enough to want two sets of them!

I should have called intimint instead of emailing and facebooking. I have yet to get an answer from them even after someone told me to PM them. Has been almost 24 hours. I might have to just do some creative math and put an order in that reaches 29.99. I really do not want to pay them a cent. I really had my heart set on an item too.

Makes me appreciate popsugar more for their quick answers and easy cancellation.

I decided to use my credit on a JewelMint mystery box even though I'm not really into jewelry. They promise a minimum of four pieces in every box.  There wasn't really anything on any of the sites I was particularly interested in, and even if I get four pairs of earrings (I can't wear earrings due to VERY BAD REACTIONS to all types of metal, and I've tried every single type I could find), I'm not out one single penny.  I can just throw them up on eBay if nothing else.

Let us know when you get your pieces!  I ordered the "vintage vow" necklace, which ended up being a lot bigger/chunkier than I expected, but I still like it.  I even took each of the "love" "honor" and "obey" pieces off the necklace and found that they fit nicely as rings, which is an unexpected bonus.  I was worried it'd look too costume-jewelry-ish, but I like it.

post #584 of 834

it won't take my credit card and I'm out 7 cents for every time I tried to enter the information...smh...i dunno wat to do now. confused.gif

One issue I had was that the address area kept "expanding" but it didnt process. I figured out that once I 'edited' billing (they needed my phone number in both areas) it went through. If this isnt the issue, then I'm not sure -- I'd try at least one other browser. Good luck!
post #586 of 834

yes, going to try another browser! thanks :)

For those of you debating hanging onto the StyleMint code to use closer to Christmas.....just be careful. I did that with my PopUp Pantry code, then went to order last week and the code had expired!! I was so irratated because I made sure to check and see if the code had an expiration date. I wrote to them (PopUp Pantry) and I got a response back saying sorry it's expired now and an insulting offer for $5 off my order. I was so mad and disappointed as I was really excited to try it!! So make sure that the StyleMint code won't expire (even if it does not have an expiration date posted it still may expire).

How could they say that the pop up pantry code expired? I was hanging on to mine as well (because I didn't ever see anything I liked on their site).

What did you get?  Was it good?

And they explicitly told me it does not expire.

No problems redeeming my Stylemint voucher.

 

Since I'm too fat to use Stylemint (I'm a size 14 or 16 depending on brand, and their sizing looks iffy), I turned my attention to Shoemint and Jewelmint.  As has been mentioned, you can't use the code on Homemint (boo!) or Beautymint.  Unfortunately, it doesn't appear they ever restock Shoemint....I wear a 9 and basically there are no shoes available in my size that interest me, and I've been stalking the site for about a week.  So, Jewelmint it was!  Just ordered the mystery box - if I get one or two pieces to wear out of the deal I'll be happy. 

 

So far this Popsugar box has been 100% win for me - the Gorjana bracelet fits me perfectly (though I have pretty small wrists), I've already used the spices, thank you notes are always great, the doughnuts were tasty as a lazy weekend breakfast, and I'll be using the CanvasPop code for one of our wedding pics.  Pretty good considering I got Nov-Jan's boxes for $75.... let's hope the next two are this awesome!

Try a public message on Facebook that says enough to get their attention. Then they will privately PM with you. I saw that they basically do that for every complaint on FB, since image is everything for a company like this especially on social media.

My jewelmint order came during the thanksgiving weekend... so I had to wait till Monday to check. 

 

 

 

I received a fairly large and heavy box.. which made me wonder why it was so heavy... I mean.. I only ordered two small rings...

It was very well packaged.... .. Ithe packaging just blew me away. 

You really don't get a $30 ring so well packaged.

I am satisfied with the quality and service. :)

My jewelmint order has shipped.  I was able to get in on the buy one get one free offer so I chose two different sets of the friendship bracelets.  I hope they are as cute in person as they appeared online!

I specifically emailed pop-up pantry a month ago and they told me that the code was good through the end of the year- Dec.31.2012.  Changing the policy is not right!
