I got it too. I'm in Canada so I can't use it either and I don't want to give them money. I'll give it away if somebody wants it.

Just to let you guys know- Lauren confirmed to me that the review boxes will be refunded in money, not in memepoints! I know some of you were concerned about that!

So finally my review points went through, I now have 6 days to decide what I want to use them on. I was eyeing off some Intl. value sets but it would seem that they have removed the ones I liked so I'm guessing my 43 points will be spent of something I'm only mildly interested in.

 

I also received what I assume will be my last ambassador review box, step by step skincare. The contents are quite nice and I'll always hold a special place in my heart for Lauren but otherwise Memebox can stick it, stick it really damn hard, where the sun don't shine.

Step by Step is a great box too.  I am so sad that memebox did this to our international community!

 

I hope you can find something good in the shop - they should just offer free shipping on everything right now in the international shop.  seriously.  Last hurrah and all.

The international shop is almost empty, some categories don't have anything.

either the shop sold out quickly this past weekend or they are just taking stuff down :(  I have oily skin, so if folks are interested in what sets I have purchased or would purchase, I put it in the spoilers (as not to bore anyone who doesn't have oily skin - haha)

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Sharashara Skincare Set Season 2 - that should be here tomorrow, but I do think that is a nice value set

 

I also have the Dewytree value set and that clay mask is really nice.  

 

the Velieve Best Value Set - I don't have that set, but I had that clay mask and it is a nice gentle clay mask and the facial sheet masks are great (that came in one of the memeboxes)

 

the amini body care set looks very nice too - if you like bath products - I have liked all of the amini items I received in past memeboxes.

 

I also like shara shara skincare items, so if you like mask sets, that one looks good

 

Face masks  - they have a lot in the memeshop (no free shipping), but if you are going over 70.00, use the freeshipping promo.  the dewytree ones are nice and the recipe by nature is also really fun to use.

they are definitely taking everything out, I wanted to by the apple scrub yesterday and while I was browsing to check what else to add to get free shipping, the scrub has gone, and they had more than 30, I checked just to make sure it won't sell out while I'm browsing. and noticed some other products have disappeared already.

anyway, can't believe they are doing that.

In the Cleanse Morning and Night box: was your Calmia peeling gel clear with random white spots in it? Someone commented on my blog's info card posting (I didn't get the box) and I'm wondering if people had problems with the product.

Gmarket has pictures of the product. Although it's very tiny, though I do think I see small white pieces in the gel. Idk if I'm allowed to link it here or not =/

Luckybox 14 was up and now sold out (was heading for a train so missed it - hope its a good one for those who did manage to grab it). Can't see anything else they've added so think that's our lot for today. :(

It didn't actually go for sale yet apparently .

My concern is I bought the bundle under the terms in the description .

I did not buy the bundle for the new LB14 description of it being a 3 choice clear out mystery box garbage sale box .

I'm now annoyed waking up to read this new description .

Just got this email that made me wonder if meme points are going for all

 

 

For International Customers

View this email in your browser

 

Hello Memebox Affiliate,

 

Due to recent changes in the international shipping and migration to Rakuten, we have created a new plan for final payouts. Please read this entire notice thoroughly!!

 

Many of you have been requesting to exchange your commission for points so you can put in some final purchases. Therefore, we have decided to cancel all withdrawal requests made prior to this notice.

 

Starting now, ALL withdrawal requests over $1.00 will be rounded to the nearest dollar and processed as meme points (the minimum value has been changed from $10 to $1).

 

Withdrawal requests will be processed at the end of each business day until Feb. 18.

 

FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:

 

We encourage you to spend your points by Feb. 10. If you can have remaining points after Feb. 10 and would like to convert the points to cash, please head over to THIS FORM and request a PayPal payout BY FEB. 20. You must have at least two meme points remaining in order to receive the payout.

 

** The form will close on February 20th, 2015 at 11:59pm PST. Your points will be converted to PayPal cash between Feb. 21 to Feb. 28.

 

We will send a little extra ($.30 + 2.9%) to cover some of the PayPal fees, but keep in mind that PayPal charges by percentage, so we may not be able to match your exact withdrawal. There will be a minor discrepancy.

 

FOR USA CUSTOMERS:

 

We encourage you to spend your points as well. If you choose not to spend your points and would prefer a payout instead, please head over to THIS FORM and request a PayPal payout BY FEB. 20. You must have at least two meme points remaining in order to receive the payout.

 

** The form will close on February 20th, 2015 at 11:59pm PST. Your points will be converted to PayPal cash between Feb. 21 to Feb. 28.

 

We will send a little extra ($0.30 + 2.9%) to cover some of the PayPal fees, but keep in mind that PayPal charges by percentage, so we may not be able to match your exact withdrawal. There will be a minor discrepancy.

 

You DO NOT have to sign up for a Rakuten account to get the rest of your commission.

 

--

 

To help keep this process as smooth as possible, please DO NOT submit your PayPal request more than once!

 

We understand that this is a rough and inconvenient process, but this is the best way of ensuring that we can get the correct amount of commission to everyone and avoid potential mistakes. Thank you for your understanding

 

Even if it does say affiliates it does make me wonder as they tell Americans to use their points too

I read that and wondered Lauren did send me an email last week saying they were going to be doing a new set up with people who didn't want to sign up to rakuten those who share and review on social media so maybe they want it all to start afresh . Last march we all had to use our points up before shipping stopped but that was only international people

This was the reply to a question about rakuten before the uk rakuten page kicked in and made it easier . But the end bit makes it seem they are moving away from points and such . Also yes the affiliate program was not legal but you still played with people for a year

 

The Rakuten network is our step towards establishing ourselves as a growing, professional company. The affiliate program is a mistake that we've really needed to correct. Rakuten is generally used for larger, professional business affiliates. However, we do appreciate our smaller bloggers and are accepting them as well :) The problem is that with a company like Rakuten, the professional and serious way of conducting an affiliate network is not what our original affiliates are used to. We will be creating a program more suitable for your group, which will be more of referral program than an affiliate program. That will coming in the future, so keep an eye out for that!

Tbh more and more I am wondering more and more if this Mickey Mouse company is really run by goofy.

Yes I know and the other day I got 4 review emails to do no points so not bothering and just now 3 review emails to do free market research from them. I can't believe they think customers are gong to do them in the way they have treated their customers the past week.

I've had about 6 of them and I've hit delete each time. They've had enough from me over the last few months, they ain't taking my time as well. They want market research then they can pay for it.

Just read the description for Luckybox 14 and really does sound like another warehouse clear out box. Think we can safely assume that's all we'd be getting now even if they do release "new" boxes later this week.

I'm so confused by that email. I don't want my commission in points, I want paypal. I've come to terms with the end of memebox and I've cut my ties. Nothing else is being spent there. So, do I do nothing or do I have to request my payout in points and then wait until the 10th to fill the form out to convert it to cash? 

 

I'm going to email them to ask, hopefully I'll actually get an answer.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
