It's all marketing. We do this in our industry. We call it "creating urgency". "Hi Miss Jones, no we only have 1 bedroom left for $500/mo you better get down there fast! It's first come first serve and I have two other people coming to look at it right now!"

I ordered it because I love the box. It always has AWESOME products and it's just fun to get something in the mail that isn't a bill. haha!

Not sure if someone already answered, but I am assuming this box is in addition to the regular Dec. box? It would have to be?

I have settled down.  I shouldn't have been so annoyed.  It's not a bad thing to be nice to people that read my blog by giving away two boxes.

for some reason i can't quote right now but ANYWAY, the wording of that email definitely seems to imply that they did make it more than 1000 boxes, that's just my personal opinion based on the the way it's written.

186 Boxes Left!

 

Hmm, after I read these posts I'm unsure if that's really how many are left or not. I sure hope the value of this box is amazing, because $100 is a lot for a box I know nothing about. Maybe once they're all sold out they'll come out with teasers and hints?

post #126 of 912

Wow, I'm surprised how many people have signed up for this. $100 is too much for me for unknown box contents. I can't wait to see what everyone gets. I hope it is awesome!

post #127 of 912

I just entered your giveaway! You are so awesome for doing this!

I'm thinking about dropping 3 months of Popsugar for the luxury edition....I don't know and clock is ticking since only 156 left.

post #129 of 912

ShadowBoxer...good choice!  Take care of yourself and Happy Belated Birthday!

post #130 of 912

I just ordered mine. Haven't been disappointed by a box of theirs yet so I have faith that the $100 will be well worth it. As of right now, the site says there is only 126 left!
 

post #131 of 912

I really want it, but I'd be spending December's entire fun budget. I'm sad! *creys* First world problems!
 

Edited to add: I did a quick tarot reading regarding this matter. I asked if I should get it, and the cards advised me to be frugal, practical and responsible. (In other words, "no." So, being me, I asked if the contents of the box would be really cool. It said that I would be disappointed in it, and poor. lol! That doesn't mean you guys won't love it. But, that was such a straight-forward answer, I must abide.

post #132 of 912

I've decided to not order. I was minutes from ordering and wanting to cancel November to pay for part of it. But I noticed that it had already been in process mode and they seemed to have changed their FAQs regarding it. However, it says that you can cancel before 15 days before the month ends and in another section it says they start billing on the 7th (which I believe is a new thing they just added on but I might be wrong). Since I am unclear as to whether I will be able to cancel November, I am not going to do the luxury. I also don't like the way they keep changing things on us even though I have been giving them a benefit of a doubt.  I emailed popsugar and hope they can cancel November for me.

Only 78 left! I'm so wrong for monitoring this but I don't want anyone on here who's considering it to miss out and regret it.

post #134 of 912

post #135 of 912

I hope we are all just over the moon with this box come Dec.

 

HAHAH I love this line of thinking! :)

post #138 of 912

OMG I just let myself buy that stupid Luxury Box. I tried to reason with myself, but it was so easy to click and it already had my credit card information and... I decided earlier not to buy a $100 pair of boots, so I felt like I had an extra $100 to spend... I need help. OMG THIS IS CRAZY!

all gone... damn that was fast
post #141 of 912

I figure that we will get at least that much back, and quite honestly, I can use some of it for gifts, or just swap with people if I don't like it.

 

Normally I would not spend $100 on a mystery box. If this was birchbox, myglam or even Julep offering a mystery box for that price I would not have been tempted in the least, because I just don't think their boxes are on the same level for the most part.

Popsugar has sent me high end stuff and I have loved the assortment so far. Plus I feel like with their klout and connections to the entertainment industry they can get better products and more on trend/fresher things than the other companies can.

 

It's kind of nuts to have bought a mystery box for that price, but I just got about that much for my birthday so I figure it's my birthday present to myself.

Just read on Geeksugar:

 

"The box will be full of some of our favorite products from fashion, beauty, and home this season." "We have more surprises in store, so stay tuned . . ."

 

0_0 Please no more surprises, people are getting broke here :)

Lol no joke! I can't afford any other kind of box and/or surprise after splurging on this one!
post #144 of 912

Ugh! It's getting tempting! Nope, not going to do it... not going to do it. IMATS, think IMATS. January... must save for IMATS.

True... you are making me feel less crazy; thank you! :D

 

I think I was drunk on my currently-a-bit-cuckoo pregnancy hormones. Well, I'm blaming it on that, at least.

I guess we now know why they didn't have more specifics.....so they can change things up even more. I guess they learned from the backlash when they said $150 and then switched to $100 and bag to box. They just put no promises but can't even keep their 1,000 claim!

 

I was still thinking about ordering, but uhh now maybe I will just hold back for now.


whats this about 150, and bag. fill me in please?

Thank God they didn't do this when I was on steroids. I had zero impulse control that week! I am truly envious of those of you who are getting one. I can't wait to live vicariously through you all. Maybe they'll offer another one in March after I get birthday money. I was going to use it to subscribe to their regular monthly boxes, but I guess I don't need money that badly, for other things, ever...

 

"Fashion Beauty and Home" I hope they send them soon, so I can get my jealousy over with quickly. ;)

Aww, congratulations on the soon arriving bundle of joy! My pregnancy and delivery were crazy, but I remember these times with such warmth (when I have time, between my lil one and popsugar craze you know....lol!)
