Updates!

post #13 of 222

I'm thinking about joining SS now that one of my other subs has gone kaboom.. but I'm trying to hold out for a free code or until my money is refunded from the other sub (since I spent it before my no buy, it doesn't count!! haha!) I tried the one posted by @rachelshine unfortunately it didn't seem to work =( so I went ahead and signed up for the beauty bar website hoping they'll email me a SS code too =)

 

for those ladies who have been subbed for a while - how do you like it compared to ipsy and BB?

I like it. It does send more skincare, etc than makeup. The brands are good, and there's usually a variety. It isn't the most exciting/fun box but it's always good quality products, the shipping is fast, and they are consistent.

I don't have BB but I do have ipsy. These are more high end products then you will get with ipsy and I think it's a good variety of what you get. I should also mention I've only been a subscriber for two months.  That being said, with the products usually being more high end I am less likely to buy the actual product even with the $15 off you get with your subscription.  Of course I rarely take advantage of the ipsy deals either.

Comparison between Sample Society and Ipsy/BirchBox:

 

-Ipsy: painfully slow, inconsistent shipping, heavy on lower quality makeup, makeup bags each month, constantly repeated brands, promo codes each month, consistently sends 5 products per bag.

 

-BirchBox: somewhat slow shipping, mix of products month to month (makeup/perfume/skin/hair care etc,), varying degree of product price points (some cheaper stuff, some higher end), lots of box variations so your happiness with your box varies widely (as do the number of products in your box), points!

 

-Sample Society: Consistent shipping via UPS, more skin care, less makeup, repeated brands/items, high-er end products, $15 off $50 coupon each month, usually small variations between boxes (one or two different products or shades), they usually send 5 or 6 box variations, where Birch has 50-60, Ipsy has oh I don't know around 6-8 variations?  

post #17 of 222

Thanks ladies! The consistent higher end products is what is really appealing to me right now, though I wish they had some kind of point system instead of the discount (that's why I initially went with BB). I have a feeling I'll be signed up by the end of the week lol

post #18 of 222

I just rejoined Sample Society after taking a hiatus to try some other subs. I can't wait for my November box!

post #19 of 222

I rejoined as well! I liked the service but I cut back on subscriptions for a while and decided to join again. 

post #21 of 222

I've honestly never heard of Sample Society till I was browsing the threads here, and I in no way need another subscription box. But, I decided to join! I have absolutely no clue what to expect, but I'm excited :) :beer:

post #27 of 222

How do I find which kit I am?

post #28 of 222

I am kit A as well.   I wonder how they decide which kit you receive?

post #29 of 222

Kit A!  We know at least 2 items in every kit. Curious what this months variation are, who's going to call SS and get the CSR to spill the beans? 

post #30 of 222

Just rejoined Sample Society after a long break, and getting Kit B :)
