Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Well, at least I got the pinkaholic box so one out of 3 ain't bad....and a nice warm jumper that was reduced by £49 so can't complain!

Ugh. I still haven't received my boxing day special #2 yet. Last tracking update was that it arrived at the  Chicago USPS facility on the 15th of this month and then no movement for 5 days. Well I just checked tracking again this morning only to find out that my box just scanned in at the USPS facility in APO, AE 09123. Have absolutely no idea where that could be so I just googled the facility and apparently my memebox has left the country and traveled over to the Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany. REALLY USPS?

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do? I don't know whether to wait a few more days and see if my memebox decides to come back stateside or contact USPS and file some sort of complaint or contact memebox directly. I've never had shipping issues before so I'm really clueless on what I should do...

@stellaa now that its moving, it might still turn up. I'd give it say another 5 days, if its not arrived by then I'd get in touch with memebox and USPS and enquire politely what the hell is going on - that your package seems to be going on a magical mystery tour but hasn't popped by to say hello yet.

 

Hopefully though, now that its physically on the move, someone will point it in the right direction

So, I've had a closer look the The Face Shop box and if I can't get it from memebox, I think I'll just get a couple of the things from TesterKorea instead as part of another order. Really wanted it for the lip balm and hand cream so can pick them up quite easily - with the added bonus that I can pick which little critter I'd like. ;)

Irritation under the spoiler.

 

 

This trickle of restocks only makes me more annoyed at Memebox, I'm afraid. I get these email notifications at 3am, and at 4am, most of the boxes are already sold out. Ridiculous. It's not a restock party if you have only ten of a box; it's a warehouse clearing sale. Just put the individual items up for sale at a discount and have done with it.

 

 

TL;DR: grrr at this restock. 

 

Also, I'm laughing at the Waxing and nail polish boxes being on the list. Those are never going to be gone.

To be honest once those nAil boxes went up this morning was the nail in the coffin . Memebox have no idea what the customer wants . No idea of stock . To be putting these boxes up after all these months proves we will be getting stock OOD in some boxes and not newer stock . Who actually has asked for waxing and nail boxes to be restocked . I mean really . I also feel one on the FB page addicts they will but any old crap memebox put out . Just so they can say I got it .

Memebox did state in the original email restocks would be small and get them quick but most are gone on seconds . Why put up 1-4 boxes for sale just send out for giveaways for break the boxes up or make a box up and do a memebox competition . It seems silly to be restocking daily why not 3 days of the week the others new boxes and products and value sets to actually gain and keep interest .

Woooo...page 2000. Milestone reached!!

 

Agree, a decent restock would be at least 50 boxes...and time to go through the check-out process. I was really lucky this morning (assuming they actually do ship the box) to grab pinkaholic. The Face Shop one Is just annoying as its obviously sold out again (or was never put up) but still looks like its for sale.

 

I'm assuming they are going to do the same tomorrow or will they release a couple of new boxes? I really hope they aren't $40 and blind as wont be buying. I only got the naked boxes as I could see what was I'm them...at $40 and no idea, that's too steep to take a gamble. Especially after some of the train wrecks we've had over the last few months..

I think they are doing more restocks right now!

I wish I could stay awake to catch at least some of the restocks. Granted, there was only one I really wanted (Hair Salon), but, man, I'm too old to be pulling allnighters just for a Meme-fix!

In total agreement.  A real restock to make customers happy again would be lots of the popular boxes, not four or five that are sold out in seconds and are obvious warehouse clearance or returns.

 

Over on FB, Memebox refuses to address the problem of all these restocks being done at the same time of day/night every time.  Guess what, Memebox, I have a life and need my sleep and am not staying up until 2 a.m. for something I might want but which would disappear from my cart before I could even check out.

 

(Btw, not saying that anyone who can stay up late doesn't have a life.  It's just me -- I'm an early bird and feel horrible if I don't go to bed at a reasonable time and stay asleep.)

 

I was hoping this box restock event would be great and would somewhat restore my faith in M.  It's done the opposite -- made me even more pissed off with the company.  Reading this, Memespies?  Do you care?

This box blowout makes it looks like Memebox wants out of the box business, not the other way around lol.

 

I think I was having a similar problem with Vagabond Youth that many had with The Face Shop box. I was able to add it to my cart, but when I went to check out, I got a notice it was out of stock, but then it showed as available on the Big Box Party page.

 

I don't know why I've been lusting after the collab boxes lately since I barely had any interest when they were launched. They just seem to be better makeup boxes than the actual makeup boxes Memebox releases. They should actually collab with Pony on a box, not just her line. I bet she would be an awesome curator.

I picked up the vagabond box, I wasn't really interested in it before but I wanted a few items and for a $23 box it seems great compared to what they are putting out lately.

I was wondering about her lately too. She is a member of the fb addicts group still, but I haven't seen her there in quite some time.

Can I second your sentiment? The only reason I stayed up the last two nights is because of the "last chance for restocks" bit of the Big Box Party banner or whatever you call it. There are a couple of restocks that I really would love to get my hands on so the threat that these boxes will not be restocked again is the only thing compelling me to stay up so far. But I am in total agreement with you- I'm too old for all-nighters (especially consecutive ones) and I really need my sleep in order to not be completely useless at work.

 

I feel like memebox is getting perverse pleasure in torturing the US market with these middle of the night restocks (my apologies to our neighbors to the north that have been getting tortured along with us).

I also think they are taunting the European market as well - it sounds like those releases happen when they have to be on the road getting to work.

Yeah, no matter what time memebox does the restock events someone in the global market is always bound to get the  short end of the stick. ;)

Woke up at 4 am EST and am still sol and I did not wake up on purpose to check as I value sleep too much. I tried to purchase the face box or whatever it is called to no avail as I am sure others were attempting to do. What kind of hell is this where it is not sold out but yet cannot for the life of anything purchase!!! It is finally fixed meaning sold out now. Doh! Did MMB hire Homer Simpson as their IT "expert?"

 

While on a rant with bog legs of my knickers in a wad, I bought the Empress's secrets box yesterday, tried to use the golden ticket code, which expires in March, and the code was denied. Aish!
