$13 shipping!!?! I had no idea about that I will def not pay $13 for shipping they must be out of their minds.

I might do it and get the print dress in the $49 tote bc it's really cute and good for work. Is it $13 for the small tote or large tote? It was like $6 or $7 last month.

The $13 was for the large tote. I also saw on their Facebook page where they are having issues with Visa and Mastercard. That must be why mine was rejected. Hopefully they fix it soon.

$13 is steep for shipping, I paid around 5 or 6 for the smaller tote last month, I almost feel like shipping should be the same or free when you purchase the big tote so I am surprised by this!

I tried to buy the accessory tote and a scarf from the store and it wanted 17 for shipping. :-/

That shipping is a deal breaker for me. It should be included in the price of the tote. It's honestly ridiculously high.

I could MAYBE see charging shipping for the small tote, but if I was shelling out for the big tote and it came up with shipping, I wouldn't go through with the order. I keep wanting to order, but my sizes are too different between brands that I can't justify it.

The items look great; last month the $49 tote had up to three items ( including the one I got) but this month it says two items so they may have changed the #of items in the smaller tote. I may skip this month and get the larger tote next month. Can't decide!

Actually I ordered the smaller tote last month for the 1st time (I usually get the larger one) and was suprised to only find 2 items in it and so I double checked the webpage and was sad to see that it said 2 to 3 items then as well.

As for shipping charges I know when my boxes arrive the postage stamp indicates shipping of between 30 and 40 dollars for my large totes and I have only ever paid $20 (I am canadian) so I am almost scared to see what the charge is now. I understand that USPS has increased their shipping costs though as most of my U.S subs have increased frown.gif

You are right, it did say 2-3 items last month as well but I guess for me it was the option of maybe getting three items that made the smaller tote more attractive:) In my case last month I got three items and little extras( the polish and the hair ties) which made me think the small tote was such a great deal. I bet they would include some surprise items still ( such nice people the owners seem to be:) but I guess having the possibility of receiving three items for me was exciting:))
Hope they'll figure out the shipping both for US and Canada customers at a reasonable set fee, I for sure think especially the big tote should have a low shipping cost!

I wish their site would come back up. I made a big Madewell order last night so now every hour that goes by I question if I should get this tote. I REALLY want that Ikat cami though.
post #101 of 2189

I just got an email from them with a $10 off code for their site being down they are only accepting visa and mastercard atm. I'm so not paying $13 for shipping though so not worth it for the price point. 

 

The $10 off code is 10DELAY

You are wicked fast, lady! Got the same email...still not sure if its worth it.

I FINALLY got my order through. I should get it free just for persistence! I got the big bag with the tribal tank and polka dot sweater.

post #104 of 2189
I think I may get the small tote with the blue dress....it's my style and something different and if don't like it
I'll send it back! I like that they have expanded the choices now. What is the shipping for the small tote? High shipping is a deal breaker for me and the very reason I REFUSE to order from Sundance catalog even though I covet their overpriced clothes!

Yeah....I don't think so.....that's just annoying
post #106 of 2189

I got the $49 tote with the print dress and with the code it came to $52. Not bad. But the $13 for shipping is pretty bad without the code.

That is crazy!  I will probably purchase this month with the code but will not purchase again for $13 shipping for a two item tote.....that's a bummer.  There are other clothing subs out there like Popbasic, Stitchfix and Elizabeth and Clarke which ship for free and (Stitchfix and E&C have free returns!).  I would rather they skip sending the actual "tote bag" and lower the cost! 

post #108 of 2189
Yeah the tote is cute but I'd rather have a discount on shipping or more bonus items.
post #109 of 2189
Shipping to Canada and Alaska/Hawaii is being charged at about 77 dollars at the moment, with a promise of a refund of the difference between that and actual cost.... I love the idea of the boutique though, I wonder if those items will end up bring the mystery items for the large tote, I am coveting the Puella Maxi Dress but I think I m out for this month, nothing really caught my eye, so I took my money over to the POP Sugar Summer edition box lol

Dang....$77 to ship to Canada?

 

As of May I only have a US address half the year :(.

And locally I can get quite  a lot of designer factory samples for $10-30 a piece (but only in size 6 or 8 and sold as is, no returns...might have "not for sale" on tags inside....lol.  (and the store only has 1 of each item..it is not a chain store but a small local random store).

 

While most of the Golden Tote items are really cute....not sure I want to pay so much for shipping.

They will be refunding the difference between the $77 and the actual cost of $30. I know from my shipping labels that I have received that it costs them $30 without tracking and $46 with tracking to ship to Canada, so on previous totes they were losing money, I am willing to pay 30 in shipping for a large tote, but not for a small one, since the large tote you get at least 6 items for $180 (including the $30 shipping), but you only get 2 in the smaller tote for 80, and as happened to me last month I did not like the 2nd item so with the $10 increase in shipping I would have basically paid 80 for a thin hoodie 

 

Apparently next months sale/website roll out the shipping will be down to thirty and no refund of the difference will be required, since I live so close tot he boarder I may just ship it there.

They posted a new dress on their Facebook page this afternoon. I guess the blue one sold out. The new one is way cute. I don't usually wear dresses or I might be a little mad I didn't have that one as an option.
post #113 of 2189
Agree, the new dress is adorable!
post #114 of 2189

The new dress convinced me to get on this one. Very cute!

post #115 of 2189

I'm awfully tempted by the dress on FB. I've never tried it, but the cost of shipping is high, as many of you have mentioned. I think I prefer Elizabeth & Clarke for clothes (I just reviewed them on my blog for the first time) even though E&C has more "basic" types of pieces. But darn that dress is cute.

post #116 of 2189

I ordered the smaller tote with a polka dot sweater earlier this month. This is my first order with Golden Tote and I can't seem to find anything about when they ship (their FAQ is almost nonexistent). Can anyone tell me when they usually ship?

post #117 of 2189
When I got last months tote they shipped mine in about a week, hope you enjoy yours, Golden Tote has great stuff!

Wow, fast! Thanks! :) At least if the other item isn't something I like, I'm still sure to get something I do.

post #119 of 2189
You are very welcome!smile.gif I passed this month, would love to see what you get:)
post #120 of 2189

I was thinking about the small tote but they ran out of the dress! the shipping though - that's crazy.
