Reminder – Golden Tote Launches Today + New Site Changes

Golden Tote Launches Today!

Golden Tote launches their new site today at noon EST! (Until then the site is down). The actual totes go on sale at 3 PM EST, so you have some time to familiarize yourself with the new site and update your profile before the tote goes on sale.

Here are the site changes from Golden Tote:

• The new website has a cart timer! Items will be held for 10 minutes once they arrive in your cart and the timer refreshes each time you add a new item.
• Want the Perfect Skinny Jeans in every color? No problem! The new site will allow you to choose 2 of the same item as your $149 tote chosen items and you can even purchase another pair as an add-on.
• Get thinking about your body type! The new profile includes multiple choice questions such as “What is your body type?” “What occasions do you typically dress for?” and “Are there any prints that you prefer to avoid?”
• The new site will launch at 9 a.m.PST, Monday, March 9th. That gives you three hours to check out the site before the tote launches at noon (PST)! We recommend creating your new profile during this time to speed up the purchasing of your tote.
• Since our new style profile is so extensive comments will be limited to 200 characters so best to limit that space for very specific requests or something that is not asked in the profile. The stylists will not have access to read any comments at the checkout page.
• For the most part, we will not be carrying over surprise items from February and months prior. If you’d like to purchase an old surprise item please email wishlist@goldentote.com.
• The new profile is much more extensive (and more exciting!), but remember that the more you choose to exclude on your profile, the fewer surprise options we have for you. We think that one of the best things about Golden Tote is that it can open you up to a look you’ve never tried before! Also keep in mind that all surprise items are pre-purchased and we use your style profile to choose the best match to the items we have in stock. It won’t always be perfect and we might not always be able to accommodate every part of your profile perfectly but we will get it pretty close and think you will like them.
• Old gift cards will work in the new system like a coupon code and deduct from your total accordingly.
• Old referral credits will be carried over with your account to the new system.
One last reminder: Shipping of late February tote orders will not be combined with March tote orders.

Here are the options for the $49 tote. (Pick 1 item get 1-2 surprise items):

  1. I love the new site! And they have reasonably priced items in their boutique

  2. frustrated that I had to create an entirely new profile and account. hope this doesnt mean ill get any repeats!

    • You had to create new account? I was able to use my old log in credentials and only had to make a new profile because it’s so much more comprehensive than their old site.

      • Same for me – same login, but new profile.

    • my account info was the same, but had to create a new style profile {which I was happy about}…the only problem, I decided to change a couple things and when I did, half of the info was not on my completed profile from the 1st time I did it. I’m scared to go back and look again…I don’t want to see that it’s missing again!!

  3. Love the new style profile…it keeps crashing on me, but that’s to be expected as the server is probably overwhelmed w/ everyone logging in right now!

  4. Just ordered my first golden tote mystery bag – I hope the sizing runs larger instead of smaller.

    • In my personal experience, the sizes do run a bit large. If they are too large, you can always put thru the laundry in hopes to shrink them…check out Liz’s reviews, she’s the best at this advice!

  5. YES!!!! So excited!!!

  6. Anyone else having trouble getting on the website? Noon, in Ohio, right Liz???

    • Yep – no luck yet. At least we have until 3 before the tote goes on sale 🙂

      • Looks like it is up!
