Julep: April 2013

Recommended Posts

Still don't see it as a scam if its two different people. Esp. In the case of getting a friend into the subscription.

I think what she is implying is that the friend received 1 box for a penny (the gift) and then another box for a penny (for her actual subscription) in which case 1 person got 2 boxes for a penny a piece.

Mmmmmm. Its still not a scam unless she kept the second box for herself. And besides the friend actually subscribed afterwards

Exactly. I would only really see it as a 'scam' if the friend then also used the promo to get an intro box. I understand the intentions are obviously good, but if you use the promo to gift a friend an intro box & then she likes it & uses the promo code to order her own intro box...technically she's getting two boxes at the promo price  OR you can look at it the other way... if you used the promo yourself & then used it again to gift your friend an intro box, then you're getting two boxes at the promo price yourself, even though you're giving one away. Either way, it's against the policy on the intro box discounts. 

 

Like I said, obviously in this sort of situation you're not really trying to 'scam' anyone, but from a completely factual standpoint it is against the rules.

Right.. I'll just go to 4 different guy friends, make them all sign up for a penny box under a different profile and then make them give them all to me! 4 boxes for $.04!! (I am not doing that of course because I don't think it's "fair".. lol)

Although, technically. From a "factual" standpoint, that's not against the rules. Cuz one 1 person bought the boxes ;p

no, I should've added that julep was contacted to transfer the subscription, so she paid in full for the next box

    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
