Cucumber water is AWESOME!

Subbed in December, this will be my first box. SO EXCITED! I'll try to post and not just lurk, hahaha.

post #183 of 1109

anyone get charged for January?

post #184 of 1109

I will be perfectly honest in that I have been super unimpressed by PS. Their customer service is lacking, they consistently out out products that their plus size customers can't wear. I'm all for giving gifts and things, but when the highest valued item is something I can't even use it gets a bit frustrating. I ended up getting two boxed in December and literally gave everything but one of the necklaces and a nail coating away. If January isn't better I'll probably end up canceling. I've gotten PS now for almost a year, and I feel like I've wasted more money than anything. /Sigh. I wish there was a better option for me.

Well, I had canceled PopSugar after December, not because I wasn't happy, but because I have way too much stuff. Plus I usually enjoy the Jul-Dec boxes much more than Jan-Jun (except last Feb which was awesome!). I just signed back up with the code though. So much for that whole getting rid of "stuff" resolution!

I looked at Social Bliss as well, just still debating because I belong to too many damn subscriptions.  Who knew they would be SO addicting?!  Would love to know what your thoughts are once you get your first Social Bliss box!

I know I haven't. They should start charging today because I really want to get my box at the end of next week.

Their website has a new blog up now. Notice there is now "read more" link where people can post comments... Intentional?

I was just reading the FAQ again. And noticed a conflict, main page says money back if you don't like the box, FAQ says credit back... Not quite the same. Come on popsugar show me the love that I need to stay

I signed up for a new subscription using the 3for2 promo about a week and a half ago...maybe the Friday after Christmas? Anyway, I noticed that last week I was charged for the full $79.xx.

That's correct, it's 40 for each month so two months is 80

With the social Bliss thing don't you want to at least see a few reviews first or wait of some promo or discount? It just seems like a lot of money for a complete unknown.

Oops - sorry. I wasn't questioning price. I just saw a few others asking if they were billed yet. Now I realize that I might have been billed at purchase for all boxes because of the 3-month promo; not charged because my box was shipping. Was trying to be informative, but I may have been more confusing! :) Whoops!

Lol oops, sorry! I understand what you were saying now =o)

I did that promo too, I've never gone month to month with ps, when do they usually charge for monthly? And how long after that do they usually ship?
post #197 of 1109

I can't wait! It's the one subscription I look forward to now.

I get charged monthly it's usually on the 4th and my package arrives around the 15th, although they haven;t charged me yet, I'll probably see the charge tomorrow.

I'm in Portland. Generally I get my box 6 days after it leaves gilroy. If it goes out the same this month it should shop tonight or tomorrow. Fingers crossed!!
post #200 of 1109

Hi all, I know this isn't the correct place to ask this but I figured it was worth a shot since some of you are chatting about social bliss. I started looking into other possible sub boxes and found Wantable's accessories box. Since the scarves and jewelry are some of my favorite items from the pop sugar boxes I wondered if it might be something worth trying. However, I've done some research and can't find much info on the accessories sub - just mostly the beauty one - and wondered if any of you had tried it and if so, what you thought? I appreciate any and all feedback before I take the plunge. Thank you! 

post #201 of 1109

I live about 30-40 minutes from Gilroy. I wish I could just drive over and pick it up. It usually takes about 2 days for me to get my box once it has shipped. Fingers crossed it comes by the end of the week!

FWIW - I recently tried both the accessories and intimates wantabel box and I LOVE it.  The thing that is really nice is you can send stuff back (free shipping) if you don't like an item.  I didn't like a necklace in my accessories box and I returned it for my $ back.  You can do that or send the whole box back.  So if you get a box you don't like, no problem.  But, both my boxes were really nice and matched exactly what I said on my survey.

Ooohh I'll have to check this out. Thank you so much!

No way, I didn't realize you could send stuff back if you didn't like it. Well that settles it. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks so much for the info! 

 

Also, if anyone is interested, I just found a trick. Fill out your profile and add it to your cart. Then leave. They'll send you an email with 10% off. It's only about $4 off but every little bit helps right? Cheers all and thanks again!

I was so disappointed in the Wantable's accessorie box. They sent me cheap items and sent me jewelry I specifically told them not to send me. For example, I told them I didn't want rings and what do they send me? .... rings! They sent me a hair piece, pretty much it was a cheap flower glued to a curl clip.litterally every item was cheap. Thank god you can return the box but I think you have to pay to return it. If you want to try it go ahead and try it because at least they have good customer service.

The stuff they sent me so so  junky I had to send both boxes back. The makeup boxes where a little better except they only have a few brands and I kept getting the same stuff so I stopped the makeup boxes

I've had a very good experience with Wantables. So far, I've gotten two accessories boxes and both of them were great. I'm surprised to hear that some people found their items cheap quality, since all the items I've gotten are high quality. Their style quiz is very detailed and so the items you receive are much more likely to be something you would want. Also, I've found that the items I don't love off the bat kind of grow on me. My first box I got a beautiful scarf, a watch that was totally my style and a ring that I wasn't too sure about. Now that ring is my favorite. And you can mark stuff as Love and you are almost guaranteed to get it, I loved scarves because I wanted more scarves for the cold weather and I've gotten one each time. You can change your quiz as often as you want. So if you want a watch one month, but don't want a bunch you mark it as love and then change to dislike for the next month.

I had somewhat less success with the intimates box, but I think that's because I'm plus size and they don't have much selections for me. Got some awesome slipper socks that I wear all the time though and a lounge shirt that I'm wearing right now, so even that box wasn't a miss for me. You can skip the month any time, so I skipped my next intimates box.

Oh, and they have great super fast customer service. I've gotten responses to my emails within minutes from them.

Hey all, I have a somewhat related question. Popsugar has been known to send a lot of gold toned jewelry, which I love, but I notice many of you don't. I realize it does not look good on all complexions. I have a friend that is very fair and a red head. I found a great Gorgana necklace that is perfect for her and I can use a code on and get it for a great deal. It is offered in gold and silver. Which is best for this complexion?

I have a fair completion and silver is definitely better on me, but, I feel like a red head might actually look better in gold. Seems like it would better compliment her hair
