POPSUGAR Must Have February 2013 Box

Is there a waitlist for this sub? Anyone know how long the wait is? I'm guessing you can't just sign up after you find out what they are sending out like you can with some other subs.

Right now the website says that subscriptions start with the February box so it doesn't sound like there is a wait list right now.  There was a wait list toward the end of the year after a couple of great boxes, so technically there is always a chance that they will have a wait list again.

They do not officially release the contents until 2 weeks or so after the boxes ship.  No one knows what will be in them until spoilers start showing up online, and by then it is too late to order that month's box.

The GoVino glasses are an excellent example - I work at a mall and one of the boutiques we have sells the champagne flutes; I remember being very skeptical when I first saw them. Since receiving the wine version in our boxes, though, I've used them quite frequently and would actually re-purchase!

 

One of the main reasons to subscribe to such services (vs. spending that money on "something you want") is to discover and try new products that you may not have reached for on your own. I know you described before how you calculate your personal value on each box, and that's what I do as well - until I feel PS lets me down on that end, I'll be a subscriber :)

 

Agreed 1000%! I've been subscribed since day one.. and on opening the box (with or without spoilers) I'm never all THAT excited about anything in it (not that I hate things - just rarely get the OMG moment from September).. but after a few uses I become OBSESSED! The socks that we got a few months back.. the GoVino glasses.. the Bodum mugs.. both work out DVDs.. the watch.. even the tote bag from the first box... all of them were SO boring to me at first but now they are honestly some of my favorite things I own! There have definitely been some items that totally missed the mark for me, and still do (the diffuser, candles, soap -- and that's just me.. others thought they were great!) but each box has had at least one or two things that I end up absolutly loving and that's what keeps me coming back!

I always love the little snacks too, even if they aren't so tasty, (although I've become addicted to the Pirate's Booty), they're usually perfect to take to work or class. Also...movie tickets?? I loved that! "Honey, we HAVE to go to this movie because we have tickets already." It took the "oh, $20 to see a movie I can get online in a few months is just too wasteful" out of the equation. As much as I'm sometimes "disappointed," I don't know if it will ever be to the degree that I would consider canceling.

About movie tickets: if you go to a lot if movies, check out MoviePass! I've had it for, oh, a month or two, and I find myself seeing a whole lot more movies since I just pay $35 a month, and i don't get upset when i see a crappy movie since i'm not wasting money on a specific movie. One big catch: I think you have to have an iPhone.

Hmm...I don't have an iPhone but I do have a smartphone...but after a little digging, it sounds like the app will be available on the Android system "soon" (whatever that means). Perhaps in time for summer? More free time + air conditioning sounds like a recipe for lots of movies for me! I don't go very often mostly because it costs so much, but I think I would way more often if there wasn't the guilt factor (I'd feel guilty for NOT going). The only downside is that you have to convince whoever you're going with to shell out the cash for full price tickets or a membership as well. Of course, there's nothing wrong with going alone either, especially when every time does not have to be an epic "experience" since you have unlimited access.

I like the hollywood idea too. I'm still disappointed that they won't exchange my stained watch from January, but I'm going to be hopeful that this box will make up for it. Fingers crossed!

 

After my prepaid months end in March, I might do Golden Tote or something fun with clothes if I don't keep this sub. I feel like I end up with a lot of accessory type items from these subs and I need to branch out more. :)

So what was wrong with your watch?

It had a gross looking gray splotch on the white watch band. I emailed them a picture of the watch in the packaging so they could see that the watch had a stain before I opened it. They said they couldn't refund due to damaged packaging (which was not what had happened). I emailed them again, explaining again what had happened and I never heard back. Other people who posted in the PS thread got re-sent or could exchange a watch, but apparently I don't count to them or something.

 

It's okay, I'll take my money to another sub when this one runs out. But I hope the next two months are good so it still feels worth the money I already spent on it. Hope for February!!! :)

My February payment is pending today on my credit card ... PopSugar is inconsistent as usual.  Hopefully that means the boxes will ship a little earlier this month??

My charge came up as pending today too.  Hopefully that means it will ship soon :) I got my January one on waitlist though and only got it a few days ago...so it would seem so fast to me if it shipped soon. I love the hollywood idea! but I am hoping for something awesomely Vday related too.

Hoping they pull a December and ship early. Of course I guess I always hope that.

Mine is processing too. I couldn't bear the thought of missing out, so I signed up for it. I figured it couldn't be worse than the January box (I could be wrong!!) but I also have people I can gift to. And two crazy kids who are wild wild wild about packages. 

 

I am hoping for V-day theme but I also just love the idea of oscars theme. I don't even watch awards shows but the idea of it as a theme for a box really appeals to me. Basically y'all totally enabled my signup.

I cancelled all except Popsugar. Also bought one gift box of februaryYyuzen, but did not subscribe. I will probably end up having only PS unless something else super exciting emerges in sub universe, like Lucky mag monthly box subscription or Vogue monthly box of stuff, lol.

I am excited for this box. It will be my 3rd one, and while the first 2 were good, IMO, I think the Feb. box will be better. I was so excited to see that I was charged and processing today, but hope the future boxes will stay consistent in charging on the first of the month.

Hope so! Mine says processing, hopefully they learned from last months slow shipping and send early so we don't have to wait till almost the end of the month to get our boxes.
