What companies do you subscribe to?

Regarding LITTLE BLACK BAG:

 

Just sayin', as a Betsey Johnson devotee, the items from her are being listed at full retail, even though they are currently at half-price on her website and are available below "retail" at several online sellers. Now, obviously, pricing isn't a big deal, since you also get other stuff, but....figured I'd point it out.

 

The specific example I noticed was the ROSE ABOVE wristlet, which is currently $34 on Betsey's site. Again, my point isn't pricing--but do not think that these are current designs! The ROSE ABOVE collection has been available AT LEAST since 2008. Sure, they're still cute, and that may not be an issue for ya, but just be aware, that's all :)

I hope that they are--they couldn't have been much worse! It was a shame, though, because they wound up turning off at least a few potential subscribers with how it was handled.

I noticed a few of her cosmetic bags were also listed at full price. I saw these same bags at Costco (set of 3) for $20 just a few weeks ago.

Once I weed out which cosmetic subs I am going to keep, I may have to sign up for this. I loved the selections they had for me in their quiz.

Yup. The one thing that I will say in their favor is that it is the actual BETSEY JOHNSON line, rather than BETSEYVILLE, but I still wouldn't want to be getting 4 year old lines from a company unless it was clearly disclosed that these are not the current collection NOR are the pricings accurate. I don't mind buying older stuff--if it's at a substantial discount--but this...isn't. (Again, not counting that you get additional items). I think I shall pass on this one, too, even though it looked exciting at first.

Its a sub for curly hair products. If I hadn't just started doing the curlygirl method I might try out. 

 

I also can't figure out how one would subscribe if they wanted to? I don't think its open yet. 

 

I can't decide if I hate or love you right now. :P

That's why I signed up too! I also signed up for Look Bag because i'm getting antsy waiting for BirchBox, and I'm not sure yet if I trust MyGlam's shipping. This is pointing towards an addiction already and I haven't even gotten a box yet haha

I'm always down for a good deal, that's usually what gets my in trouble!  The only thing I'm concerned about is that I'll be gone for three whole months this summer (my department is sending me to Italy) so i'll either have to cancel subscriptions (or skip months if that's possible) or just have my roomies make sure they put my boxes in my room.  It would be kind of fun to come home to 9 boxes though!

You should be able to skip months but you would have to do it manually every month.

SO glad I wasn't the only one who found their inaugural box to be horrid. Someone said that their CS told them that the first month was done to just to gauge interest, but I don't know...it may sound stupid, but working in CS (in another field), when someone wants to cancel, we at least ask WHY they are cancelling--not just to try to "save" the account, but also because the feedback is important for future "directions" for the company. So while it was nice that they cancelled quickly, if they really were trying to gauge interest, I wonder why they didn't at least ask why people were cancelling, etc.

I'm still giving them one more month--hoping Sample Society turns out nicely, to be honest.

The month of Feb was the month to try everyrhing out. If I stayed a member through March, I'd get hit with almost $100 in fees! Need to trim as quickly as possible. LOL

Oh, I feel ya there! I've set myself a budget for each month of approximately $50. I don't see my leaving Birchbox any time soon, and canceling MPB gave me room for Sample Society. I have a feeling MyGlam is gonna go after March, so that will give me a tad more flexibility. By keeping it at a price point I can manage and trying to give at least 3 months, I figure I'm getting a better shot at finding THE RIGHT one for me, ya know?

So far, I love love love Birchbox, I don't. I am not overly thrilled with my bag this month but there isn't anything I don't see myself using (if it works for me). I'm really excited for Sample Society and The Look Bag
