post #751 of 912

I certainly understand what Ann T. is saying.  I agreed with her and I cancelled my subscription a few days ago!  It wasn't just based on this box (though it didn't help), but with the previous boxes, customer service, and shipping all together.  I've actually decided to cancel all my subscription boxes and just start putting the time into researching what I like and paying for the  products I know I will enjoy.  Or, at the very least, buying them from a store that will let me return them if I don't like them!  

 

As for the 12/24 ship date, I DO believe that was an implied guarantee if not a written one.  Yes, the weather and other obstacles can prevent on time shipping, but they know this.  It is their responsibility to get the product shipped out early enough to account for such things.   That's my two cents (that's actually worth one penny). rolleyes.gif

Agree! An implied guarantee is binding, otherwise they need to include a disclaimer, so they are not legally obligated to deliver when promised.

One that they sent out to all their subscribers to encourage to buy this a holiday gift.

 

If they wanted to be accurate, they should have stated boxes MAY arrive before 12/24. Or at least clearly state that an Xmas arrival is not guaranteed. Seriously, when you order something on Nov 7th, there is an assumption it will naturally arrive before 12/24. Especially if they say so in their communication.

 

Shipping is always a mess around the holidays. PS should take that into account when they create a ship date. They also should have shipped the east coast boxes before the west coast ones. It is their responsibility.

My box did not arrive due to any other reason then it was shipped on the 17th and miraculously was expected to make it across the country, during the height of the holidays.

If it didn't say will arrive by 12/24 "guaranteed" then I didn't assume it's a guarantee (and I got mine on time and I'm as East as you can get, but not without some investigating on my part and tracking it down myself).  I agree they should've said in a note that they may be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances (but then that wouldn't really encourage sales either if they placed doubts).  

 

I agree, shipping could have been earlier to ensure everyone got their boxes by 12/24.  But I see a lot of posts hoping on a word that was never mentioned.   

 

I certainly think a whole bunch of things could have been better: better packing to prevent broken items, better shipping method/option, better communication.  

 

I think my note was more directed at those attacking PS for shipment when really there is nothing they can do after it leaves their hands.  Maybe PS will consider a different shipping option or to ship sooner in the future, but being a fairly new sub, I'm thinking they've got some things to work on and work out in the New Year.  Here's to hoping we get everything we want.

I did not opt to buy the luxury box (thank goodness) but I did get a 3 month sub for $75, set to expire in January!  That will be my last one also.  BTW, when do I have to cancel by in January to make sure they don't "renew" my subscription and charge me $35 for February??

I don't think it was every guaranteed by Christmas it was just emailed that they would arrive by 12/24.  I can find nothing about a guarantee. I think that was kind of talked up on the posts here and everyone started jumping on the word guarantee.

 

I agree with everyone else, Smartpost is awful and slow and frustrating, another service could probably be better, but with that would come a price change in the monthly cost or an additional shipping cost.  Which, I'm sure would get just as many complaints if that service failed in anyway too.  Imagine when you PAY for shipping AND your box and it still goes missing.  Oy, there is no winning!

I'm sorry to say this, but when you say something will arrive by the 24th it is a promise which is binding. What ever you state on your website or through emails is an advertisement and companies have to honor it. Otherwise it is false advertisement which is illegal. 

 

For an example here's an email I received from popsugar: 

 

 

Hi .....

Thank you so much for your email and we're thrilled that you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of your December and Luxury boxes. Your December box is currently on its way to you and feel free to track it with the number .....

Please know that your boxes will arrive no later than December 24th and we hope you enjoy them! If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Hi Nikki,

Thank you for your email and we would like to apologize for the delayed response — we have been unusually busy in the last week and a half. I just checked the status of your package and it looks like it is currently out for delivery. We would like to apologize that it was delayed and we would like to offer you a complementary January box. I have gone ahead and credited your subscription #17243 so you will be receiving a January box on us! As for the missing razor in your Men's Luxury box, we would like to apologize that it was missing and we will go ahead and ship you a replacement right away.

Thank you for your patience!

This is my third time contacting. I have received my for him luxury box (on time) it was missing a razor. I still do not have my for her luxury box. It was noted as out for delivery on the 22nd and still has not been delivered. I have filed a case with usps and contacted consumer affairs since my post office now no longer knows where my package is and there is no update into the investigation that was filed on the 24th. Consumer affairs said they would contact me again about the investigation within 72 hours. At this point no one seems to know where my package is or when i am getting it. Considering this was a gift (both were) i am highly upset. I was expecting some sort of response by now or at least for the for her box to have arrived. If you would like the case number i have filed with the post office let me know and i will be happy to give it to you and please let me know how this situation will be rectified. Thank you.

I still don't see the word "guarantee," like so many posted here, but I agree it's a pretty good assumption to go on that they'll get there when they say they will get there.

 

I'm not disagreeing with any of this, btw, it all could've been better.  It really does suck because if mine had been late/missing/broken/damaged I would've been equally as upset and would really reconsidered buying from PS again.

Wait! So essentially your box is missing in action and not just delayed?!!!!!

 

Nightmare. You obviously need to contact them again so they UNDERSTAND what you are saying.

And also make sure they credit you for Feb not Jan.

 

I'm so sorry you have to deal with this mess.

It is a guarantee. The word guarantee does not have to appear literally when a company promises you something in writing.

Be it PS or any other company on the planet.

Yes completely missing. The post office doesn't know where it is and right now I'm waiting for a call back from consumer affairs but I mentioned this all to them. I have free months up until march. And I don't think comping me a 35 dollar month makes up for an 100 dollar box I never got. I am pissed that they obviously didn't care enough to read any of my first three emails.

I don't see it the same way. I guess.  But I do agree they gave the impression of a timeframe that should've been upheld to the best of their abilities.  Good luck and Happy New Year!

post #763 of 912
I specifically remember the order page saying "Guaranteed delivery by December 24th" for the women's box. Obviously that page is no longer accessible, but I remember it saying that.

Also, they may not be able to help the shipping issues but I know my boxes they weren't ACTUALLY shipped until a few days after I got the shipping email. They are TOTALLY responsible for all of the broken and missing stuff.

You obviously need to get a FULL refund, plus the FREE box or whatever else to compensate for the aggravation this caused.

 

Plus this box was purchased as a holiday present. Those of us who didn't receive it in time had to scramble to buy alternative gifts at the last minute..

A refund doesn't cover that part of the equation.

 

I still haven't heard back from PS about my box btw.

At this point I would be happy just to get my lux box, a replacement. But that wasn't even offererd.
I'm sorry you haven't heard back It seems like they are playing catch up now and you should heard back soon. Let me know what they say!

I am not trying to be combative. Just trying to help :) We should all know our rights as a consumer. This isn't about opinions, it's about the law. 

That promise is legally binding. 

Happy New Year to you too!!!!!!

Well my box FINALLY arrived (3 days passed the 12/24 promise date)

Honestly if they give you a refund and not a replacement box, I wouldn't be too upset.

Here are my thoughts :

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The Cuff is a disaster! It came squeezed in a little velvet pouch that was way too small. I almost had to cut the pouch to get it out. When it did "pop" out...it was not only bent, but badly mis-shapen and tarnished! It is totally unwearable. 

 
The Lippman Duo is nice. I got the polish in Naked (happy about that, I could use more nude polishes) and the lipstick in "I'm Every Woman" a pale pinkish beige nude. 
 
The Epicuren Lotion in Moroccan Rosemary (nice)
 
The Savon De Marseille  Olive Oil/ Lavender (good)
 
Tocca Candle in Florence ( a rose scent- not thrilling at all)
 
The JewelMint clutch in Silver Mesh. Yuck. It's beyond tiny! Seriously small and cheaply made.
The mesh looks like it's about to fall apart any minute. I would use it inside another bag as a lipstick holder, but honestly I don't think it would make it very long.
 
Vosges chocolates - I ate 3 of them already LOL. They are good but not amazing. Would have rather had the sampler that had all the different varieties. That's the point of Vosges, they are known for exotic chocolates, not dark chocolate and peppermint!
 
 

 

I hope your box arrives soon.

And you are happier with the contents.

I gave my lotion and soap to my mother in law since I can't stand the smell of lavender. My husband just got off the phone with her and she loved them both. She said the lotion is the best she's ever used, so it's good that someone is getting some use out of it!
post #771 of 912

A quick update, i went down to my post office, i walked the half a mile but whatever, they had my box this whole time, having once again not attempted to deliver. I have had to pick up all three boxes myself since my post office does not deliver anything pop sugar!!!! Anyway i had to then carry the box home the half a mile which would have been fine except apparently the post office had other packages that i should have received so i had to carry those home too, and its freezing out! I got my box and i had a lot of the issues you all had-

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

the cuff was stuffed so hard into a velvet bag that i had to cut the bag open to get it out and it was very very misshapen and small
the chocolates were the same three flavors repeated i am not sure whats going on with that considering the picture shows all different flavors.
lastly i got some mesh bag that doesn't even open so i cant even fit a card like an id or credit card or wallet in. which baffles me a "clutch" that has no use
the soap and candle were in tact and the nail polish lipstick set was a nice nude which i can live with. I don't think its worth 100 dollars but i don't think its so much a waste of money.

I emailed them to let them know i got it and i hope they adjust my "free month" since i am "paid" up until march because of referrals. If they don't extend it then their apology is meaningless to me.

If you read my post (a few posts earlier) we had the EXACT same experience with our contents.

 

What scents did you get for the...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

lotion and handsoap?

 
I don't know why I am still using spoilers, since the box was supposedly delivered to everyone days ago!!!!

 

I am going to email them now and let them know the cuff is unwearable!

I got rosemary for the lotion and olive and lavender for the soap. I really like how they smell. As for the cuff i bent it back into shape and also so it could fit me it took a bit of force and time to get it perfect its still a tiny bit bent but better then when i got it. I didint even mention that in my email to them because at this point i just dont care, i just want the item from my for him box to come and for my free month to be added to my already free months. thats what will make me happy after this whole thing.

We got the identical box...same colors, same scents. I really like the scents also. The Olive Oil/Lavender is so classic french! And the Moroccan Rosemary, is really interesting. My cuff is bent to the point of non-repair. (and tarnished too) I will have to mention it. 

Hope you get your Him box item quickly and all else.

Have a happy new year!

Well I work in retail for a store that uses that word specifically on their marketing and is repeated to our customers.  I just think we all assume the risk, I don't think PS can really guarantee anything.  Not unless they use a different shipping option, but that won't eliminate human error, dropped or broken packages or packing errors and missing items.

 

But whatevs, I got my box, on time, intact with a variety I like.  I feel for those who didn't.  It's a super bummer.  I hope everyone has a better luck in the new year. 

post #780 of 912

I was in Vegas over the weekend and used my silver mesh purse. It is in fact an excellent Vegas purse. I was a little surprised at how well that mesh conducts heat though - it was warm after sitting in my lap for not very long. Tried the soap, it's okay, but I'm not super impressed with the Mediterranean scent. Haven't tried anything else yet, but I think one of the most important things I got was the box. It fits in this spot a little better than the old boot box that she had been using.
