Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

it looks like that is not a typo - you pay for one express shipping cost 18.99 - it is no longer a free upgrade to express shipping. they really need to reword that better. that is not a free upgrade. that is just express shipping at one cost.

 

Get this value set with free upgrade to express shipping with one payment of $18.99

Nope, there is no way that can be classified as being free upgrade. Its a standard express shipping cost of $18.99 and, at that price and no other options, I'm out

LOL at this in the new box description:  "Whether you're in your 20s or your 40s, the quest to maintain supple, soft skin is a daily challenge."

 

So I guess since I'm in my 50s they think I'd be better off just offing myself now and getting it over with.

 

NEVER!!!!  :angry:

 

P.S.  I'm glad they're offering bundles of the newer boxes; however, since I think all the new boxes will only have 5 items at best, I'm wary.

Yep that's a disastrous move.  People bought the value sets for the free express.  Sorry memebox, to follow the title style of your skincare products, you can go "**** yourself"

 

(eta: sorry if that's harsh or crass, but I'm just SO unimpressed with this company right now.)

Memebox FREE UPGRADE means it costs nothing, zip, nada, nowt...it does NOT mean you charge $18.99. That is NOT free. Comprende? Its misleading and untrue to say FREE UPGRADE so change it...oh how I wish I were a US lawyer...I'd even send the letters in for FREE (and not charge $24 for them lol!)

They just seem to be taking everyone's suggestions and altering them to fit the bottom line. I guess for the die hards who always order express shipping, technically paying only $9.50 each box for express shipping could be considered a deal. Regular consumers aren't really going to go for that offer though.

 

I can't remember who mentioned this a long time ago, but someone did say that all of the great customer perks were to boost their year-end sales numbers, and now they have to get back to padding their profit margin.

.

That and the new  customers who is not aware how the previous bundles were priced. They may think it's a reasonable deal as well.

So, just asked my husband what he though free upgrade meant and he said...well, it would be the regular price of the shipping but for the express shipping.

 

Fair enough...that's still only $6.99 as that's the snail mail price. So, even if you double that (for the two boxes...it would still be less than the $18.99 they want to charge).

 

No matter how you look at it, its misleading. Express shipping is $18.99 normally. Even putting 2 boxes for 1 express shipping would suffice

What on earth?

 

Since when is paying $18.99 free?!  They're both arriving in the same box so it's not two shipment charges and one is free... because there's only ONE shipment which means ONE shipping charge.  And if there's a charge then it's not free. 

 

Dopes.  Who'd want to do that anyway?  It completely takes the value out of buying a value set.  How many times have I bought a box I didn't really want just to get the express shipping?  Several.  But this makes it completely not worth it anymore.

Is it bad to bait them by pointing it out to them on Instagram?

No.  I pointed out to them on Facebook that we know they are deleting negative reviews of their products.  I asked them how stupid they think we are.

I was feeling a bit appreciated with memebox offering bundles again, but if they really stick to $18.99 "free shipping upgrade" they just ruin everything! plan for self destruction!!! Who is taking these decisions?!?!

but that is not free upgrade to shipping.  They need to change that term - they used it in the past for one cost of 6.99 (regular shipping) that was upgraded at no additional cost to express.

    • Used up: Sisley concealer foil packet - it is wonderful. It has an orange undertone to counteract dark circles. The texture is gorgeous.  Sisley Global Perfect (pore minimizing face cream) deluxe sample - it is rich and creamy but also has a powdery finish at the same time.  Caudalie VineActiv eye cream deluxe sample I finished a full size shower gel - Yves Rocher Apricot Rosemary. It is a 6.7 ounce size, and took me a month to use. I was excited to finish it. I have a Grapefruit Thyme shower gel of the same size, so I think I can use it up in the next month, along with paying off my credit card, which is now at $166. I'm also going to use this very cute little bottle of Pixi Rose Tonic, which smells beautiful.     
    • Well, let's start with the fact that finding an agile service is quite difficult. I have been living in California for several years and now I use the services of the guys from https://www.rapidus.com. Here deliver packages on the same day. I am satisfied, since I do not have to wait long for my packages and worry. I can always track my package and in case of anything, contact the courier, it is very convenient.
    • Hi everyone, this is Tess Applying eye shadow can be difficult at first.  It was almost impossible for us to master how to do it without proper step-by-step tutorial from someone who knows what they are doing. I have watched many videos of tutorials online but nothing can compare to this simple, clear-to-the-cut video here: https://dausel.co/oqlh26 Click the link above and you will immediately land on the tutorial, just click “I am not a robot” to continue and you will be on the best YouTube Tutorial video on applying eye shadow where it shows step-by-step on how to apply the eye shadow perfectly even if you are a beginner. I wish someone had showed me this video when I was first learning how to apply eye shadow because it could have saved me hour and hours of time and frustration. Again, you can watch the tutorial here: https://dausel.co/oqlh26 Hope it helps someone else as it helped me J Tess
