I saw her post earlier today. They didn't address the fact that the cover photo is still November and just addressed the fact she's a new member.

They responded earlier today (Super quick at replying!) and sad they'll be refunding my card. I'm still overdrawn until then, but that's life haha. College is so expensive! I'm really glad they took the charge off, especially reading that another MUT lady wasn't as lucky. Once I'm more financially stable I'll probably be joining PS again. Until then I'll just enviously watch for spoilers! :)

Popsugar doesn't release spoilers and it's way too early for anyone to have received their Jan box. Should be a spoiler late next week I suspect.

I just bought a tumbler at bed bath and beyond yesterday that has an infuser in it and I love it! you can put fruit/ cucumbers/ etc in the infuser part without mucking up your straw when you drink!! I would love a water decanter for my fridge like this or maybe another tumbler....oh please????

 

Oooh, good call on the infuser pitcher! I'd love to get one of those. A nice dishwasher safe glass one hopefully:)

I'm a university student so I feel your pain! Maybe for now you can just swap for your favourite PS items:)

Subbing!

The 3for2 deal was still going on so I did end up getting the next 3 months. My husband has been doing our budget so he's going to kill me when he sees 85 dollars coming out, but when you get a month free - it makes the most fiscal sense, right?

 

Here's to hoping PS feels reeeally bad that so many people hated their boxes and the next 3 are really stellar:)

I ended up purchasing a 3-month subscription (I recently ended my subscription to PS), and since I just paid for this semester's classes, my account is WAAAY overdrawn. 

 

Gulp.

 

I just contacted PS...I hope their customer service responds quickly to e-mails. :(


Glad you got your problem solved.  I guess I did the same thing - I was glad that the code was applied and the system did didn't offer me a chance to verify and the charge went through in one second with no verification option. Luckily I wanted the same credit card I had last used on the Holiday box and not the card I had been using.  They need to fix that problem and create a confirmation screen.  POPSUGAR, are you listening?

Yeah I'm a little surprised there's no confirmation screen too. I wasn't sure if my code worked properly so I had to go back to the Account screen to see how much I was billed.

I actually tried to use the code last week and the page reset. I didn't know if the transaction went through and emailed them.  I never received an email reply as to whether or not the transaction went through. After a week I was confident it was a computer glitch but still received no reply.  They have a good product but really don't seem to have it together with customer service.

Just got 3 months for the price of 2 for my daughter in college. Even when is not fantastic, for less than $27 is a heck of a care package.  (Also got the Groupon 3 months deal for $37 for Taste Guru gluten free boxes - great price

)

Free subscription box while in college would have been so amazing! I'll have to remember that idea when my kids gets closer

Yes, there are always great deals on Groupon or LivingSocial for PIJON, Love with Food and other great subs for college kids, too!

Yeah. I agree. I actually thought the box was okay, but it sure doesn't look so great in the picture. I think it's the lack of a large sized item. The bracelet was the big ticket item and it just looks kind of puny.

Haha I soo thought the same thing. I'm all "aww poor lonely box"

THIS.
I've been getting blasted with overdraft fees after my mini fiasco. A second confirmation screen could have saved me a lot of money. I know they're removing the charge, but with the overdraft fees in place I pretty much paid for a full 3-month sub without the discount code. Ugh.

That's so sad! Depending on who you bank with, once the fees are removed they may be willing to remove the OD fees as a one time courtesy. I work in CS and if a charge we make overdrafts a customers account, we reverse it and then sometimes the bank will also reverse the fees. It's at least worth asking

I have the Cassis Parlour Candle as well as the black Dahlia candle and they are both downright luxurious. The snuffer is super gorgeous I'd love to get one of those!

I don't know about recently, but Hautelook, Gilt and RueLaLa had DL & Co sales frequently.  I have enough of their beautiful boxes to last a lifetime. I've long ago burned their candles to the end.  I love the packages they come in and the scents, oh the scents… I have dabbed a new unburned candle on my wrist and gotten tons of compliments.  Black Dahlia is one of my faves too!!! Their defusers are great as well but you don't get the packaging like you do with the candles. They had an apple scent, the name escapes me now that was my all time favorite. I'm on a no-buy (6 months, yay!) for haute look, Gilt, Ruelala (and the rest of those sites). I should check to see if they have DL & Co.  

 

I'm about sick of PopSugar.  I just tried to log onto my account to initiate a complaint about the December bracelet. My PS password is invalid!!!!  I had my password reset and NONE of my subscription information shows up!!!  NOTHING.  It shows up as a new user.  I've got a current 3 month membership AND I bought 2 LE boxes. Horrible.  I can't believe how awful they have become.  SMH.  

I was logging in to complain that one of the baguette rhinestones fell out of the Lulu Frost bracelet after the first time worn - and it was a gift to a friend!!  Talk about embarrassing/horrifying/mortifying, you get the idea!  

 

I was thinking that if January was awesome I would resub but now I'm not so sure!!!

BTW, I am Barbara, aka Babs.  

Edited for grammar errors.

Hey Babs! :) Thanks so much for the heads up about DL & Co. I know they were on QVC at some point but I missed them. There were even some of the diffusers on clearance for about $10 and my sister had grabbed some before they were gone. They just make the perfect gifts and are so elegant! I know what apple scent you're referring to...I can't remember the name either! It was like poison apple or something like that but it was amazing!!

 

I've only had PopSugar for a month but it took 3 weeks for my package to arrive after receiving my tracking code. They were nice enough to send me another one via USPS and told me to keep the first box when it finally showed up. I know not everyone gets a response from them or that some have a bad experience with their CS, but I was lucky and was very pleased with the way they handled it.

 

I wasn't impressed with the December box. I didn't have the same list of gripes that most people had, but I just felt like it wasn't worth $40 to me personally. I know the value exceeded that, but I would have never purchased those items on my own, and I ended up giving almost all of it away. Seeing as how this box is supposed to be my treat each month, I'm really hoping for a great January box!

Courtney were you able to extend your current sub or did you just renew. My sub ends after March, but I am wondering if I could use the 3for2 code to extend my sub.

Hmm I'm really not sure on that one. I was on month to month, so I just logged in and did the 3 month checkout and it added it to my account.

It's either Thorn Apple or Poison Apple but the only way to get Poison Apple now is to spend $550 since it now only comes adorned in 2,500 red swarovski crystals!!! So I'm thinking it may have been Thorn Apple.

I've had positive experiences with PS CS.  The one clothing gift card didn't fit me, the clothes were too big so they had me send back the unused gift card and sent me this really awesome necklace from the company.  They were great.  It's the boxes themselves that disappoint me.

 

Just an FYI and possibly a late holiday gift to everyone, if you haven't used your Lulu Frost 25% off card, or weren't planning to because most everything is so expensive, I just used the 25% off code on SALE items.  The little card says 25% off of your entire "full-price purchase" but it let me use the code for 2 sale items!  YAY!!!  $160 in bracelets for $120.  I'm a happy camper!!  Hopefully they won't kick my order back.

I bought the Medusa and Elsa bracelets (http://lulufrost.com/item/medusa-bracelet---orig-price-115 and http://lulufrost.com/item/elsa-bracelet--orig-195). I really really REALLY wanted to get the Absinthe Bracelet (http://lulufrost.com/item/absinthe-bracelet---orig-price-265) but couldn't justify putting that much on my card. @MissJexie, I thought of you when I saw it, it kinda goes with that whole DL &Co candle feel!  Hopefully next payday it will still be there - so no one buy it!  LOL I'm kidding, sort of! yahootongue.gif

Oh it WAS thorn apple!! haha I'm glad you remembered! :)

I could never afford that bracelet but it is absolutely STUNNING! I had no idea how pretty the Lulu Frost jewelry was! I got a House of Harlow necklace from my fiance for Christmas that was $65 and I almost died. I've never owned any expensive jewelry before other than my engagement ring, and even that was only about $200 as I don't like diamonds! I'm currently not working due to a health issue, so maybe I'll print out a picture of it and put it on my dream board instead of buying it haha :) <3

I'm DYING for another Thorn Apple candle!!!  I'll have to go searching now.  

 

Yeah, the stuff on Lulu Frost is expensive.  A bit too expensive for not being gold if you ask me!  But I caved!  LOL. I loved the medusa bracelet and the 25% off worked so yay!  I collect jewelry, all kinds.  One of my favorite pieces is from a guy on Bourbon street in New Orleans who made me a ring out of some kind of wire with a few beads. It took him 5 minutes and watching him work was like watching a master paint.  The ring is  beautiful and when I tried to pay him for it he refuse to take any money and just said, "Wear it in good health with that beautiful smile."  The experience was so sweet and odd because usually on Bourbon Street people are trying to hustle you for every dollar they can get. It's very rare that you get someone as kind as him on Bourbon street. Its one of my favorite memories from living there.

I agree it's a bit on the pricey side for brass and glass gemstones but they just make everything look so pretty!! I actually liked the one we got in the December PS box (I know a lot of people didn't like it) but I wish it didn't have the logo on the back of it. That is such a cool story! My friend went on a cross-country trip and actually got her purse stolen on Bourbon Street, so it's nice to hear that you got a nice memory from there! :)
