POPSUGAR Must Have On Sale!

POPSUGAR Must Have is on sale today at RueLaLa! You can get an Introductory box for only $29.95 (normally $39.95). (FYI – this will start a POPSUGAR subscription at the regular rate after the first box).

Are you going to grab one? (I’m curious what the “Introductory” part of this means – is it just the April box? Or is it an intro box like Birchbox does for new subscribers?)

  1. Wait! Birchbox does an introductory box?!?! I have been getting birchbox for only three months now and never got an “introductory” box! I just got a normal box!

    • I am going by what this post said~ now that I think of it~~~ no I don’t think my first BB was an intro box?? HmmmM~~~~

    • Introductory box, known as Welcome Box is only when you get a gift subscription

      • It is supposed to apply to ALL new subscribers. They just don’t do a very good job about advertising it. But I did confirm it with their CS and had to ask for mine.

    • If you started with the February box like I did you would have gotten the US weekly box instead of an intro box

      • I didn’t get my free box until I asked for it 4 months after I joined. And even then it took another 2 months until it was delivered. Another company that uses FedEx Snail Post.

        • And it was just a repeat of that month’s box, so nothing new or different for me.

        • Wait its a free extra box!?! Seriously? I never got anything extra from Birchbox.

      • No, I started in January. Fail for me.

    • What is an intro box? Is it free??

  2. Just purchased this~ now I have to admit~ I am already a PSMH subscriber but I was curious to see the contents of this box~~~ is it March? Is it April? Either way I loved both boxes and would be happy with either of them~ although I would definitely prefer an Intro box like bB does!
    What do you ladies think???

    • I have no idea if it’s an actual intro box or if we can apply it to a May or June box! I hope someone finds out. XD

  3. How do you cancel? I haven’t decided for certain yet, but I’m still in the fence about both PSMH and Blush and neither are super forthcoming about how to go about this :/

    • Psmh can be cancelled under my account- manage subscriptions…i think u might have to call for blush, because althpugh u r supposed to b able to, i can’t find the cancellation button online

      • You do have to call and cancel blush..1.855.62BLUSH (25874).

  4. This type of marketing encourages people to cancel and then resubscribe. I signed up last month for April when there was a coupon code for $10 off, then a few days later there was a different coupon code for 50% off! They don’t reward loyalty. So I canceled after my box shipped and will sign up again when there’s another 50% off discount code. : /

  5. I’m wondering how strict the “Valid only for new customers” is. I cancelled because I wasn’t sure I could afford this month…but I would be interested in rejoining if I could get this deal. If anyone tries it, can you advise whether or not it works?

  6. Hi everyone, I don’t know if they should be running another promo, until they get their current shipping problems under control. I ordered my first box for April, and it still says “processing”, for awhile now. But they took my money right away. I sent them an, email, and no response yet. Is anyone else having a problem with their April box, or had a response from POPSUGAR?

    • I wouldn’t worry too much if its your first box from them. My first box took a little while to ship too, but now that I’m getting my regular monthly ones, they are shipping more towards beginning of month 🙂

    • I’m having the exact same issue. I resubbed this month and mines still processing. 🙁

      • I’ve been a longtime subscriber and my box just shipped on Saturday, while many people received their box at the end of last week. I also purchased the Resort box and mine still isn’t here and wasn’t shipped until 11 days past the promised ship date. It looks like they have a new strategy of shipping to people on the east coast first. They’re definitely shipping in “waves” so you’ll probably get a shipping notice today or tomorrow.
        I’m going to cancel my monthly subscription and resubscribe with the codes they’ve been offering every month for new subscribers. Spoilers are usually out in plenty of time to make a decision if I want the box.
        They’ve done nothing to say “thanks” to their loyal customer base. In fact, I sent them an upset email when it looked like my resort box wouldn’t get here until after I left on vacation. They never even bothered to reply.

        • I’m on the east coast and mine is still processing too.

    • I remember my first box took a few weeks to receive as well. I had been waitlisted for October but didn’t get off the waitlist until after everyone else had received their boxes, so I got mine closer to the end of the month. Once you’re on schedule payment and shipment is quite consistent.

    • Their shipping is notoriously slow even once it does ship. I am certain that my Pop Sugar boxes are transported by hitchhiking hobos.

      • haha Maggie hitchhiking hobos would get it here faster than Fedex Slowpost!!!
        ordered on 4/4 and it’s still processing (I’m on the East Coast). Long as I get the April box I’ll be happy:) Usually it takes about 10 days from when it says “shipped”

      • I feel like ALL my boxes are transported that way. haha
