I used my credit for the satin lapel pj set on intimint. I'm not impressed.

 

They took 10 days to let me know there was a problem with my order, but that it would be shipping soon. 4 days later they sent me the shipping email, without a tracking number, and yesterday it showed up. 

 

I'm 5'3", this set is huge! I showed my 6'3" husband and he agreed the proportions are more to fit his height. The highest button on the shirt falls where the bottom dip of a plunge line bra would hit. And the pant go just shy of that point on me icon_eek.gif. Luckily the material is thin and easily rolled down.  I wouldn't say the cloth is the best quality, but it is soft. There are snags on the satin part and threads hanging everywhere. 

 

The only redeeming factor is the gift they included, a lingerie bag, it has pink on it and is better quality than the pajamas lol.

I like those earrings! I got mine today. Unfortunately I didn't like any of the items :( Looks like they'll be gifts for others

 That's the box that I got, though the necklace had different colors. Unfortunately it's just not my style

These are the same pjs I got, and at 5'9" they fit me great and are really comfy, though the neckline is a bit low. I hope they hold up okay.

I called to cancel my subscriptions as I didn't want three charges each month and they entirely cancelled my accounts so I can no longer even look at their things online. I was kind of sad as I like the shirt, pjs and sunglasses I got, but didn't want to risk forgetting to skip an order.

I got this box as well. I love the earrings, bracelets, and the silver necklace. As far as the other necklace, it will be a regift. Its not my style at all. I had to order the new mystery box though and I hope I like it as well.

A trick to looking at the Intimint items is to just google an item and then visit that page (like "Intimint Robe"). Once that page opens, you can click to see the other items offered. I think it bypasses their popup screen on the main page to get you to sign up.

 I admit that I kind of wanted to order from Intimint just for the gift because I am a sucker for "extras."

does anyone want to trade their stylemint code for my RTR code?? pm me!!

post #788 of 834

I have a canvas pop and RTR code that I am willing to trade for a stylemint code!

post #789 of 834

Finally got my November box! There was a mess up, all resolved, and it did arrive before my December box (which should be here tomorrow!). I love the Gorjana braclet, but its a lot cheaper feeling than I expected, but it fits perfectly. Moving on though, that means I have a canvas pop code I'm willing to trade if anyone, for whatever reason, doesn't want their stylemint. Just message me!

post #790 of 834

Anyone want my Canvas Pop code? PM ME! =)

post #791 of 834
That was quick! Just gave it away!
post #792 of 834

I wanted to let everyone know that I am very impressed with one aspect of Stylemint.   I ordered the mystery box with my credit and received three tees.  They aren't like, super stylish or anything but they are cute basics, even though one was too big and drapey.  The fabrics feel nice and I will get plenty of use from the two that fit well.

 

But I was folding the shirts today and saw that they are all MADE IN USA!  Which is super cool and my opinion of the company went up a great deal after seeing that.

For those of you that have been fighting with Popup pantry and were only given a $20 credit- they currently have an offer for $20 off of your first order. Which should make the meal free when combined with the $20 credit. The email stated
"I'm upping the discount to $20 off your first order! But I can only get away with it for this weekend only, so you need to order by Sunday night to score this deal. Just enter code DECTWENTY at checkout and get $20 off."

I received the same email so I placed an order.  They were sold out of the meal I wanted so I'm going to try the Wild Boar Ragu with Truffled Polenta.  I'm still a bit sour about the whole ordeal.  I would never support this company but I feel that we are all entitled to take advantage of the PopSugar Promotion as monthly subscribers so that is the only reason why I placed an order.

Same here, I'm so irritated with them. I'm tempted to keep fighting just because they are so wrong. But at this point I'm starting to feel like they just aren't even worth the frustrations. I'm just going to order and be done with it. I will certainly never support them and am happy to share my negative experience with anyone that asks. I think they really screwed up with how they handled the PopSugar codes

post #796 of 834
Honestly girls I'm all about the fight but this fight is not worth it- IMO the meal was awful. Not even worth the time it took to unfreeze and prepare. I would've rather had a lean cuisine.
post #797 of 834

Don't forget to cancel Pop Up Pantry after it ships out and then happily delete them from your life after you eat the meal (don't want you to have the stupid subscription appear on your statement in the new year). I honestly don't think they will last in the long haul (maybe not in the short term either). The food alone was horrific. If I was a chef I would be embarrassed to have my name associated.

 

Interesting how when we first showed interest/concerns in Pop Up Pantry, the founder popped on here to make some remarks. But when there are direct posts on fb, they delete them as resolved and when people email directly, they brush them off with mediocre deals.

 

I kept their styrofoam box to reuse this holiday to haul something around or maybe use it to transport cold groceries in my car during the summer.....I will find a use for it because really don't want to throw it into the land fill. We aren't even allowed to use styrofoam containers in our local restaurants.

 

Quite enjoying my stylemint Dalton shirts, feeling trendy with my stripes but also comfy. They might be sorta right about this wider at the bottom cause it does hide the tummy.

 

I did have a reason behind this long post. Does anyone want my Canvas Pop code? Just message me and its yours. I rather give it to someone here who would appreciate it than let it expire. Plus I like the "friendliness" we have in the November board....

post #798 of 834

I have a canvas pop code up for grabs if anyone wants to trade?

post #799 of 834
Here is my pop up pantry update. I posted on their facebook wall that I wasn't able to use the coupon code. They requested that I email their support desk. I did that on Dec 5th and STILL haven't heard back. A few days later, I emailed pop sugar about the issue and here was their response:

Hi Meagan,

Thank you for your email and I would like to apologize that PopUp Pantry is no longer honoring their voucher. Unfortunately now that we are well into December there is little we can do to enforce this and we would like to sincerely apologize that you were not able to use your voucher. We hope you have been having a wonderful Holiday season and please know that should you choose to resubscribe with us there are sure to be many more fun treats to try!

Happy Holidays

I'm not sure if they weren't helpful because I canceled my subscription or not. But this is ridiculous! Especially since I only got the code at the end of October!
post #800 of 834

That Pop Up Pantry thing makes me SO MAD. You guys didn't did not get an expiration date on the code; therefore, they cannot say it is expired. What terrible business practices!

I emailed PopSugar as well when Pop-Up Pantry was being so inconsistent - I didn't even want to deal with Pop Up Pantry after that and hearing that their meals weren't even that great.  I sent PopSugar a note mostly to tell them what was going on and that it was disappointing.  My response was similar - they apologized and said that it was pretty much out of their hands, but (I guess because I am still a subscriber) she offered me some goodies to make up for it (I don't know what, and nothing has shipped yet but it hasn't been very long).  It doesn't seem fair not to do more for you just because you cancelled your subscription - you still paid for or earned the box with the Pop-Up Pantry code and they should rectify that (especially when they throw in the bit about you resubscribing - they need to give you a reason to want to resub!)

Very poor business practices.  To send a card out that says nothing about "October only!" and not listing an expiration date ... even if it wasn't their intent to honor it longer, it's bad PR to not only tell people they can't use it, but to be so inconsistent with the way they are handling inquiries about it.  You would think it would be better on their bottom line to have all of these free meals spread over a few months rather than hundreds (thousands? idk) of free meals ordered in a short period of time.  Not to mention how many meals were sold out before many people had even received their PopSugar box.  Surely PopSugar told them how many subscribers would be receiving the code?  And they had a bit of notice?  Pop-Up Pantry does not seem like they were prepared at all for handling the promotion.  I'm just glad that it didn't cost me any money to find out that this is NOT a company that I want to do business with.  

post #803 of 834

I think all of the negative reviews of Pop Up Pantry contributed to them not honoring the coupons longer. I'm sure that they gave the codes out hoping to get subscribers, but it all turned into a bit of a fiasco for them.  Clearly there wasn't a lot of overlap between PopSugar subscribers and people who loved their meals and would buy them (at least here on MUT).  If less complaining had happened, or if there had been even one positive review, they might have honored the codes for longer.  I do think that companies give their goods to PopSugar (free or greatly discounted) hoping for great reviews and purchases.  While we should all be honest in our beliefs and reviews, clamoring on a bandwagon of hating a company that sent out a code months ago and is no longer honoring it doesn't help PopSugar be able to get great things for us in the future.

I think that's kinda crappy that they are doing something extra for you because you are currently a subscriber. I'm going to email them back and see if there is anything they will do for me. I posted ANOTHER message on pop-up pantry's facebook page stating that I emailed their customer service Dec 5th and no one has gotten back to me and got a reply to PM them. I'll let you know if anything come from it (highly doubtful).
post #805 of 834

I got a reply back from pop sugar yesterday. Here is what they said:

 

 

Hi Meagan,

Thank you for your email and please know that this feedback is not falling on deaf ears. Since our customers' experiences have been less than positive with PopUp Pantry, we have been working hard to ensure that all of the coupons we include have all the necessary information included on them. Again, I would like to apologize that you are not able to redeem your PopUp Pantry coupon and aside from having you email them to see if they can offer you a discount, which you have already done, there is not much we can to to enforce this. Since your experience with the PopUp Pantry voucher has been so negative, I would be more than happy to ship you a package of goodies for this disappointment. Can you please confirm your address for me?

Thank you!
POPSUGAR Support

So hopefully in the future, expiration dates won't be a problem. I'm still trying to work with pop-up pantry. If I get anywhere, I will post it.

post #806 of 834

Did the people who emailed to cancel stylemint subs all get an emailed response?  I emailed to cancel weeks ago and have not heard anything.

post #807 of 834

I have a Canvas Pop and two RTR codes I am willing to trade.  Thanks!  PM is fine.

post #808 of 834

I also have the Canvas Pop code and two different RTR codes. One is from Birchbox. Willing to trade too.

post #809 of 834

I am not sure how many of you still have your stylemint credit from November but I wanted to let you know of a great way to spend it I just stumbled on today. InitMint is offering mystery boxes for $19.99 that include at least 4 panties and up to 10! Then there is a 60% off every item promotion going on at IntiMint. To use a credit you have to use it in full so:

 

4 IntiMint Mystery Box at $20 each = $80

60% off each item brings it down to = $32

$30 StyleMint Credit from PS brings my grand total down to 

$2!!! For at least 16 items!

That's an amazing deal! I wish I had waited to use my code! My stylemint mystery box is STILL a week later. I'm in no real rush to receive it, but I also don't appreciate it taking so long to ship out.

 

Again if anyone still have their SM code I would be willing to trade it for my canvas pop and both RTR codes I have!

 

Edit: Just tried to do this deal anyway ($32 is such a steal) and it wont allow me to use the promo code of 60% off.
