When they started the subscription, they advertised each month being worth at least $150 and would include a bag. At some point after people ordered, they changed it to $100 and no bag. Subscribers did not appreciate the switch and many emailed popsugar to let them know.

I missed out and now I'm super bummed. Tried placing the order several times and it never went through.

 

If anyone has an extra box, or changes their mind, let me know!

We really appreciate you sharing your feedback, so that we can address your concerns. Please know that the PopSugar Must Have Luxury Edition box is indeed an exclusive box with limited quantity. We're glad to hear that you already secured yours, as not everyone will get one. There has been an overwhelming demand for this special box, and as previously mentioned, it will be selling out soon! We apologize for any confusion as we were experiencing some hiccups on our site which has now been resolved. We know that you will love this limited edition box as much as we do! Let us know if you have any other questions.

 
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.

 

I got the exact same email... this is what I sent them:

 

I, as well as many others I have spoken to who subscribe, am a bit
annoyed at the seemingly intentional deception around the "Only 1,000
made!" thing - when it is perfectly clear that you are still accepting
orders well after they should have sold out.

 

I ordered mine this morning... and around noon I looked at the site again
and there were "Only 68 left!" and then apparently there were "Only 8
left!" and then an hour later there were "Only 1,000 made!" and NOW - there is

NOTHING regarding how many are left/how many are made, yet they are
still avaliable.

 

Honestly, $100 is a lot to spend on something with ZERO hints as to what it

is or how much it's worth, and a big part of the allure was that it was
such a limited edition thing. I have been a loyal subscriber since the very

beginning, and honestly, despite the fine print saying PopSugar can change
anything it wants whenever it wants, this is not the first time I have felt deceived.

 

I am generally happy with the Must Have program, have referred several
friends, and would like to continue my patronage, but I think there are
some serious consistency problems that need to be addressed.

 

 

So yeah, I probably am overreacting to the whole thing... I'm just getting REALLY fed up with how often they change things without telling us... Oh well, I'm still totally addicted!

Same email as well.
 

post #155 of 912
Ohmygosh!!! I was offline for 2 day and completely missed this! I neer even received an email even though I subscribe to the regular box. Congrads to everyone that got one. I'm so bummed that I missed it frown.gif

If anyone bought the box and is having second thoughts/buyers remorse I'd be interested in buying it from you for the full cost.
post #156 of 912

Rats...my order never went through as suspected.

 

Thank you so much for your email. I am so sorry, but it looks like your order did not go through. You are still set to receive a December Box, however, and we have been working hard to ensure that it is very special! If you have any further questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us.

Have a wonderful day!
POPSUGAR Support


Wish they would just open it back up with 100 boxes!

You know i was going to sign up for the Luxury Edition box but i decided since there were no hints, no values and really no information besides saying it was their most luxury box yet i figured i was happy with my 3 month subscription. Plus it really turned me off when they said 1,000 boxes made then it kept changing and it was really deceitful.  Hey girls I went to Macy's online(one day sale today) and bought myself a Fossil wallet, a Guess handbag and two DKNY shirts which all came to $100. I gave myself true luxury with items i needed and wanted and LOVE!!! No gimmicks, no tricks just great stuff!! All had a value of $300 or more. Trust me we can all live without what is in that box so do not feel bad if you missed out on this one. These companies rely on the addiction we feel as consumers and how badly some of us need that element of surprise in our lives. Seriously we will do fine without it. Hope this helps the ones who feel bad they did not get one. I chose not to. I'm glad i did. Now go buy yourselves a handbag!! ha ha. Happy Holidays!!!!

I hope this box is good because I went to Target today and spent $0 on myself. First time ever. I told my hubby about the box and lucky for me he just rolled his eyes.

Great point.  This actually gave me an idea, though.  We should do $100 gift boxes and trade them with each other!  Lol.  Just kidding (could you imagine not actually getting that $100 box?) but I bet we could come up with some pretty creative boxes ourselves! ;)

I'm totally down for a Secret Santa exchange!!!

On the website it now says that the December luxury boxes are sold out, but that they plan to have more in the coming year.  This gives me hope that I made the right choice in buying, because if they want to sucker people into spending $100 on future boxes the kick-off one should be awesome!

Love it! And I totally agree with your logic! I am really looking forward to this box. I just signed up for PopSugar in general about a month ago. My first box is the November box. Do you happen to know when they usually ship?

Yay!!! I was thinking kind of the same thing! I was never one to gamble, but after seeing what the regular boxes are like, this will have to be good! I just hope it's my kind of good. :)

Oh my gosh! I just checked and it says the Lux box is shipping

lol when i saw you post that my heart started to flutter with exitement!

post #173 of 912

I know i feel the same way. I love the element of surprise and us women deserve that but $100 was easy to pass on with no extra hints. It concerned me ha ha ha.

Secret Santa im down for it !!!!!

post #174 of 912

Hi ladies!  I'm new!  I've enjoyed reading your discussions about Popsugar and finally had to join because I'm just as crazy obssesed as you are!  I unfortunately missed out on the luxury box due to the website freaking out, but cannot wait to live vicariously through your boxes when they arrive!

post #175 of 912

Yeah but their track record on inaugural boxes is not good!

Ugh... you are SO right. Still optimistic though!!

post #177 of 912

Maybe the luxury box will include some of these??  http://www.popsugar.com/Holiday-Gift-Guide-2012-25679103

post #178 of 912

Have they ever mentioned something on the site and then it was in the box? 

post #179 of 912

Something tells me the box will contain something cashmere...probably gloves. It's just a feeling....it's not a spoiler.

Not that I can recall - in past threads we've compared some of the lists on their site and didn't see any correlation. Maybe it will be a different case for the Lux Edition, though - we shall see!
