POPSUGAR Luxury Edition for Him

post #1 of 198

I thought it made sense to give this box its own thread.  I sooooo hope I do not regret it, but I bought it for my boyfriend. I will let you know how it goes.

I'm right there with you.  Can't wait to see what's inside but I really hope my guy likes some of it.  Eek!

I am thinking I will wrap them up as separate presents and maybe save some for Valentine's day. Let's hope they are on target!

They must be having a really hard time selling this box. They now have videos up on their various popsugar youtube channels advertising the box.

Well...after the "limited" edition luxury box was first posted everyone jumped on it and later revolted after more and more of these were made available....We've all heard the statement: Fool me once.....shame on you.  Fool me twice...shame on me.

I asked my husband if he wanted this box and he seems to be interested(I think). I just hate buying something for my husband blindly since he's so picky. I'll wait till December 1st, if it's still available, I'll get it for him.

FYI from Popsugar CS
"The standard Must Have box will be shipped in early December and the Luxury boxes will be shipped soon after and arrive by December 24th at the latest"

i agree!

$100 is too much and I'm pretty sure my boyfriend would not use half the stuff.  I toyed with Birchbox Men for him but a friend of mine got it and said it was awful.

I'm still debating...my bf could care less about this box even though I try to convince him otherwise. I want  this box more than he does if only to satisfy my own curiosity!

post #16 of 198
I'm thinking about buying my hair stylist this box but a $100 is a little more than I wanted to spend- I'm hoping and a praying that a promo code comes out for the last 100 boxes- pretty please pop sugar!!
post #17 of 198

I would be shocked if they actually gave out a discount or promo code for the luxury boxes, anything over a $5 off sort of thing.  I think they'd have a lot of refunds to issue to irritated customers who paid full price - and it would probably be a better move to GIVE any leftover boxes to bloggers to review rather than...  I guess, diluting the perceived value of the box, if that makes any sense? 
 

post #18 of 198

OK, I decided to bite the bullet and bought one for my BF...hope this wasn't a mistake! Seeing only 100 boxes left made me nervous. Marketing techniques are just WAY too effective on me!

76 now...it is a little weird, suddenly a lot of purchases...

post #22 of 198

I ordered 2 luxury boxes for Men for the men in my life tonight. At $100 each, that is their Christmas presents in FULL. Nothing like putting all your eggs in one basket and taking a chance. If its bad.... I will hear about it for decades!!! LOL

I'm actually not surprised by this.  I still haven't figured out what to get my dad, and if he wasn't a 64-year-old retired timber cutter whose favorite hobby is fishing (read:  *not* their target market!), I would probably be giving up on trying to decide and just get him this (or get this and then split it between him and my brother, since they have *no clue* about subscription boxes, so they won't know that I've gotten a random box of stuff and split it between them, ecept my brother is a nerd-oriented librarian who likes to cook, so typical guy-oriented stuff isn't for him anyway.  I'm actually getting him a salt block -- which he *loved* last year, but he really needs four of them if he plans on using them on his grill like I'm pretty sure he wants to do -- and a t-shirt with a yin yang symbol made out of the Millennium Falcon and Serenity).  I've also been watching my spending, and it's starting to get into crunch time to get everything purchased for everyone, so getting a $100 men's luxury box and then splitting it between your dad/brother/roommate/boyfriend/etc. is starting to become really appealing, and then there are all of the people who were tempted but told themselves, "If it's still available on *this* date/after *this* payday, I'm getting it for [insert dude here]."

 

Now if they had a luxury kitchen/cooking-themed box, I would have snagged that in an instant.  That would be easily split between several of the people on my shopping list, and I would have easily been able to justify the cost because of that.

I just ordered one for hubby.  Only 61 boxes left!

post #25 of 198

Didn't plan to buy this box, but, but, but after reading all your enabler posts... I bought one just now and only 55 boxes left... my wallet must be crying now :'(

post #26 of 198

i almost want to buy this box but not for my bf, maybe to divide up among my guy friends, and sometimes i like guy themed items like wiskey cubes etc. but would it be selfish to buy myself both boxes lol and only give away the very manly items?

post #27 of 198
I caved due to 55 left- god there's something about creating an ergency- I know this all too well being a real estate agent..Lol! Anyways I bought 2- 1 for my hair stylist and 1 for my BF- I can always raid his stuff which is soooooo much fun!!

After thought- buy to give out to your friends and keep your fav items for yourself- we all deserve to treat ourselves- I may do this a little too often ;-)
