  1. I got the shipped email Thursday, but as of today it doesn’t look like it’s even been picked up!!!!!!! C’mon – Ship my box FOR REAL!!! This is my first Popsugar box ever so I’m excited as everything should be new to me. I just want it already!!!!!! I did see its 5.2 lbs and shipping for NY, since others are saying that…does it make a difference in the items with where it comes from??

  2. I ordered 2 and they’re definitely shaping up to be different boxes. One is 4 lbs from CA, the other is 5.4 from NY. CA arrives Monday, NY on Saturday. Can’t wait to get them!!

    • Got my 5.4 box from NY today!!!!
      It has…….
      Ansel cook book -the secret recipes
      wine glass writers
      tarte eye shadow trio
      terrapin ridge mustard
      Deepa Gurnani headband
      Mercury jewel box rain candle.

      It’s a great value, but I am disappointed since these are all duplicates. will be putting up for swap. Was hoping for one or two items that were new, but no luck.

      • Thanks so much for letting us know!! πŸ™‚

    • I had the same weights and origins for my 2 boxes, and today my 5.4 box from NY morphed into a weight of 2.7.

    • Yes! I have two, and one is 3 lbs and the other 4 lbs

  3. Mine is 5.2 pound and was shipped from NY. I am in MA and its in MA as of Sunday. It saying it will be here Weds but I know it will be here tomorrow which it will be Monday. First box from them except one mini so I am excited and of whatever I dont love it will be a Christmas gift.

    • I’m on the SouthEast coast and mine has shipped from CA with a delivery date of Monday, July 25th. The anticipation is torture! It’s shows my box weighs 3.1lbs. This will be my first PSMH box so I’m not sure what to expect other than the dreaded tassels or books. lol

  4. mine is 3.1 and tracking says its only 5 hours away from me but says will arrive friday i think i will get it a lot sooner, i actually want a book

  5. Mine says 1 pound. Good things come in small packages – I hope.

    • Absolutely…. The value is still guaranteed to be at least $100

      • Scarfs, gift cards, jewelry. ..

  6. 5.4. Hope it’s not a duplicate of the books.

    • Mine is 4.9. I hope it isn’t books

    • Me too but I know from previous boxes the weight isn’t always accurate. I am hoping I don’t get another Chrissy cookbook!! Mine is out for delivery and I usually get my mail by 11!!!

      • Post as soon as you can!!! I’m dying to know what everyone gets!

        • Ditto!

          • tried to post earlier but now I don’t see comment, so my apologies if this is a duplicate-
            my 5.4 shipped from NY has

            wine glass writer pens
            pecan honey mustard
            Deepa Gurnani headband
            Dominique Ansel cookbook
            Mercury Rain candle
            Tarte eyeshadow trio

  7. 5.4 pounds scheduled to arrive next Friday! Yay! I can’t wait!!

    • Mine still says Friday, but as of this morning, it’s in Ohio, right next door to me in Indiana! Maybe it’ll be here much sooner!

  8. Finally got my shipping info last night — 5.4 lbs, coming from NY. At first it said arriving Thursday but that’s now changed to Friday… I think it’ll arrive sooner though.

  9. I have 3 boxes coming, two that I bought for gifts. One is 1.0 pounds. Seriously. I think I may be getting an empty box. The others are 5.4 and 3.1.

  10. One of mine is 2.8 pounds and the other is 4 pounds…at least that means they’re not the exact same box πŸ™‚ Hoping for the cookbook and a yoga mat!

    • I received both tracking emails, finally. One weighing 5.2 pounds and the other 3.8. To be delivered at the end of next week. I’m happy to see different weights. I can’t wait to see what we all receive.

    • Christy, which cookbook did you want? I have the Cravings one if you want it. No charge, I am downsizing and would like to give it a good home.

      • Anna,

        If Christy doesn’t want it, I would be happy to buy it from you! I’m hoping to get this in one of my boxes.

        • If Christy doesn’t reply back you can have it.

          • Thanks!

        • If I get the book you can have it. I will come back to this site and let you know. ( if Christy doesn’t claim it)

          • Thank you, Bonny! My daughter has been asking for Cravings repeatedly!

          • Debby, you are welome. My boxes are due to arrive next Thursday. If I get it…it’s yours to give to your daughter.

      • Yes!! That one!!! I would love it, thank you sooo much!!

      • Anna, you are so awesome!! Thank you!! My kids will be so happy to have me cooking again! I’m not sure how to private message you on here, or do I just give you my email? It’s Thank you so much!!

        • I just sent you an email christy.

  11. Since there are so many repeat weights, I wonder if these are past boxes and not random items. Or the random items were packaged in sets. After being disappointed by Laritzy, I am just happy my boxes are not duplicates (based on weight). And after being disappointed by stowaway, I know popsugar will send me something good. Needless to say, I cannot wait to get my boxes!

  12. 3.1lbs πŸ™

    • 3.1 for me too. Just remember, bigger doesn’t always mean better! πŸ™‚

      • That’s what I am telling myself!

    • 3.1 lbs here too. I can’t wait to see what I get!

      • 3.1 for me too. I did NOT want a book so I am taking this as a good sign?

  13. I couldn’t fight the urge and bought two. I just got my tracking and I ordered right away when it posted, so those of you who haven’t gotten yours yet hold tight! One at 4 lbs and one at 3 lbs… At least I know I didn’t get the exact same box twice πŸ™‚ Now the anticipation of what I got!

    • I just got my tracking a few minutes ago, too! I ordered two boxes on 7/4. One weighs 3.1 lb and the other is 4 lb. I take that as a good sign that they’re not all the same stuff.

      • My 2 are the same weight as ur two. Hopefully we got 2 diff variations:)

      • Mine are the same weight as yours. I ordered them at separate times. I hope they are good!

    • Oh,you are lucky.I also ordered two boxes. Mine are both showing 3.2 lbs. I am fearing duplicate boxes.

    • I got a tracking number and my box weights 5.4 pounds. I can’t wait till it gets here.

      • I wonder why they are so different. I mean mine is 3.1.

      • Mine is 5.4 lbs too, we shall see what that means! I can’t wait to see what everyone got. Will it be love or a giant swap fest?

    • Mine is 5.1!

    • 4.9 lbs here! Fingers crossed!

      • 4.9 as well. Hmm.

      • 4.9 lbs represent! I am fearing it’ll be five bottles of that pepper water from May!

  14. I ordered 2 on july 4th and they STILL say processing…..sigh…..

  15. Mine still says processing! I can’t wait to see it has even shipping. My ipsy should be here Monday. I just ordered one of the Target boxes. This is my first time doing this type of thing, thanks to this website lol. Everyone keep us/me posted. I am on here all day. Don’t tell my boss!

    • Lol…I remember my first time. This site will get you in trouble. I wonder if Liz has some kind of disclaimer? If not, she should. It’s kinda like being a smoker and wanting to sue the cigarette company when you get cancer…no offense Liz.

  16. :-/ I ordered one pretty early on when they went on sale and I’ve not gotten any shipping notification and online it says “tracking: processing.”

  17. I didn’t receive any shipping notification, but I checked my Fedex account online and find a package heading my way with impressive 5.4lbs WOW! Wonder what will be inside.

    • I hope no more yoga mats! I already received 2 and don’t do yoga. LOL

      • I’m hoping the weight means we might get candles, books, the blue clock, or good skin care products..I don’t even mind getting the Bingo game…
        I really do not need a Yoga mat, but if I get another one I will put it under my kitchen rug by the sink ( makes it comfy while I’m doing dishes.) I hate all things with tassels…so a weight of 5 pounds or more give me hope.

  18. 5.1 lbs … I suspect there’s a book in there somewhere πŸ˜‰

    • Oh….good idea! I’ll check the weight on mine , so I can drive myself crazy. Thanks;)

    • My shipping info reports a weight of 5.1 pounds, too! Hmmmm….I’m with you, possibly a book? I ordered two boxes on separate days. I got shipping info for the 1st box, so I hope the second box has different items.

      • BINGO! LOl If youre lucky.

        I ordered two and it still says shipping pending so I have zero idea or even a clue just yet. lol I kinda hope one of mine is heavy and one light. πŸ™‚

        Over on the forum people are getting weights as low as 1.8lbs and ALOT are getting the shipping weights at 5.1. SO looks to be a fiar split so far.

        I’ve only gotten two Popsugar regularr boxes so anything should be a win for me specially at $20 a box.

        • Forum? How to I get to the forum? I have only purchased 2 boxes in the last 2 years, so I think I have a good shot at getting a good box. I do hope for a heavy and a light weight box, too. 20 bucks each…I really wanted to order more! What I don’t use will be used as gifts.

    • My box is only 2.8 lbs. No shipping notice either FedEx is the way to go.

      • I ordered two boxes on separate days, they’re both very different weights and shipping from different locations. Here’s hoping I won’t have any duplicate items!

  19. Just got my shipping notification! Yay!

    • Same here. I’m so happy. But it looks like only one of mine shipped. I ordered two.

    • Me too, yay! (I hope.)

      • Aw ! Haven’t got mine yet, but keeping my fingers crossed that I get it soon.

  20. I just went to their website to check in the 2 boxes i purchased when this first became on sale. The website no longer shows this purchase. Is anyone else having this problem?

    • I checked. Mine is only showing the second box that I purchased, not the first one though. It charged me for both. I guess I’ll have to contact customer service.

    • I ordered the day it was released and it shows in my purchase history. They also charged me right away for it. Hoping it ships soon!

      • Mine still says processing. Geeze. Its been 9 days. You would think they’d have them packed up and ready to ship out when they went on sale, if they are trying to clear out their warehouse???? I got my July box yesterday and I was sure it was my mystery box until I opened it.

      • Same here! It’s all made worse by how super excited and fidgety I am to see what I get!

      • Website says it will ship by July 15th via FedEx Smartpost. Having difficulty finding my purchase in their system but I have a confirmation email.

        • Same here. I sent an email to their customer service. They quickly confirmed my two boxes ( their site doesn’t show them as 2 being ordered ) .

    • I ordered my July 5th and it still says processing on their website. Did anyone receive an email to confirm purchase? Or do they not send out any emails?

  21. Just went to order a 2nd one and they are finally sold out. Whew!

    Can’t wait to see what everyone gets!

  22. LOL I kept trying to buy this all weekend…..going back and forth as to whether I really wanted it, but caved in several times……but everytime I tried to place an order, I got a message to check whether my phone number was correct. Well, it most certainly was….and when I tried to order again, same message popped up. There was no way to check “Yes, this IS my phone number” so…..I took it as a sign it was not to be. I suppose I could have contacted customer service, but again….just seemed like it was not to be:)
    I must have tried ten times…..never got past the page where it asked for my phone number.

  23. woot woot! Just ordered one tonight πŸ™‚ I don’t subscribe to this box; so i’m excited about getting a mystery box.

  24. I got two. Never received this sub so whatever I don’t like goes to swap or gift. I need to cancel some subs this month anyhoo.

  25. I am so proud of myself for resisting this offer. But please share what you get, because I want to share in the excitement.

    I have read Spark Joy, and am trying to only keep things that I love, so it doesn’t make sense for me to buy a mystery box, even on the cheap. I understand why it’s smart to buy these for gifts, but people in my life are harder to shop for than that. I hope you all get exactly what you wanted in your boxes!

  26. I feel like the only personon here that only bought one. hope you guys get a variety of items. I’m looking forward to see what comes.
    btw, I lovel tassels…;-)

    • I only bought one also πŸ™‚

    • I felt the same way too, both with this, LaRitzy, & (always) the Target boxes. If there was a guarantee there’d be no duplicates, knowing me I’d end up buying every version available!

    • I bought one. Gifts were my motivation. I love leather tassels.

    • I only bought one too! I didn’t want to end up with a bunch of duplicate items.

      • I just bought ONE too.

  27. Caved again and just bought a 3rd one… OMG… ?

    • Lol, I made it through the last hour without buying a 3rd one. If I find out that the people that bought 3 and 4 boxes receive no duplicates….I’m gonna cry.

      • So did I BUT the sale is still active and I am THIS close to buying a 3rd. Damn you PopSugar shut it down πŸ™‚

        • Why did you just say that? Lol…they need to shut it down now!

  28. I was so close only one hour left, went and got 2 more for a total of 4. Hopefully I get lucky and they’re not all the same.

  29. Omg…1 hour and 8 minutes. I can avoid buying a 3rd one. I hope!

  30. Just gave in and bought two after seeing the last day notice. Aaarrrgghhhh!!! I tried so hard to ignore but to quote Al Pacino in Godfather 3, ‘just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!’. Lol. I’m

  31. Well, I physically couldn’t help my self! I actually broke out into hives trying not to worry about ordering a second box. Took some Benadryl and ordered another one. Going to take a nap now.

  32. ARG!!! I made it all the way to the last day and just now caved. I got two. I’m so weak.

  33. Once, I saw the end was today, I had to do it. I signed up for ipsy yesterday, after researching on this site for months. Then this box and ordered it. I am so excited! I may need a second job now. HA HA Thanks fellow addicts for your reviews, you created a monster.

  34. I ordered one yesterday after debating for a few days. I don’t really like a lot of the items from past Popsugar boxes but seem to love the items in the mini boxes so I’m hoping that I get more of those items. At any rate, I’m sure I can gift or donate items that I don’t like.

  35. Dang it! Just ordered my second one. I couldn’t help myself. I didn’t get either Target box so this basically is just a couple of dollars more for something with a much better value right? I have to justify this somehow. Having a retail therapy moment.

    • I’m with you Debbie…just ordered my second one. It will be fun to get these boxes!

  36. I couldn’t resist it anymore and bought my second one! I really need to stop coming to this site. I’ll play the Mega Millions today and maybe I’ll win so I can support my addition. ?

    • Cristal, are you in Cali? OMG! I’m going to buy a ticket too! This is insanity ? I can buy a million boxes!!! Good luck

      • I’m in Texas. I wish I was in Cali with the heat and humidity we are having now. Good luck to you too!

        • I’m in Massachusetts and our heat and humidity is killing us!!! We now have water restrictions, we haven’t had real rain in a long time. I will play the Mega Millions as well πŸ™‚

  37. I oredered one box on the fourth, and decided to order two more on the sixth. Just checked my online banking and noticed that on the sixth there are two charges for two boxes, and they are marked as a recurring payment. I just emailed their customer service. Has this happened to anyone else?

  38. i was just too tempted to not get it. I’m so excited, gonna be my first pop sugar!

    • My first too! Very excited!

  39. I bought 1 on day 1. If I thought the boxes would vary a lot, I would be tempted to buy several! I am tempted to buy 1 more. But I have to check myself with these several thoughts:

    Husband didn’t freak out that I bought one, don’t want to push it
    Just subbed to Uppercase, Globein, Causebox & Serendipity.
    Thinking of moving soon
    The swap boards should be flooded with new merchandise. If I didn’t get it, I should be able to swap for it! Honestly, it is only this last thought that keeps me from buying another one.

    Now, how do I stop myself from subbing to 6 months of crazy cat lady box with the 20% coupon? I think my husband might be less mad if I adopted another cat!

    • I stopped getting Popsugar regularly on that logic, even though there have been some really good deals. There are enough of most items floating around that it’s been relatively painless to swap for the things I want.

      • Every time I try to look at the swap page it just spins and spins. I never can see anything? Any idea what’s happening?

  40. I actually have been trying to swap for Bluma Project Capri Bracelets (Set of 2) …

    • I really want them! any thing your looking for?

    • I own these but don’t have them listed – I’m willing to swap. How can I find you?

    • I also have a brand new set and would be happy to swap, but haven’t listed.

  41. I have been going back and forth on this for so long. If I hadn’t just bought two bigger boxes I would have done this immediately. But I don’t know if I can hold out today too. I want that “Cravings” book so bad. Also, I always buy the $20 PSMH boxes, like the November one and the one from January 2015, and I haven’t been disappointed with those yet.

    • The Cravings books is the top of my wishlist!

      • I’ve got the “Cravings” book that I’d totally be willing to swap!

    • I love the Cravings cookbook – I haven’t actually cooked anything out of it yet since I’m a vegetarian, but there’s a little story with each recipe and I read all those – they were hilarious πŸ™‚

      • Yes, exactly! And the pictures are amazing!

  42. I was planning on ordering one but all the comments about two boxes made me think…I could have two boxes?! And that is what I did. So excited to see what we all got!

  43. I bought one the first day. SO tempted to pick up another one…. Doesn’t help that today is payday. I can’t remember if it was this box that said def no repeats if you ordered more than one. Anyone know?

    • I don’t think it said. There is print at the bottom that says boxes MAY vary. I ordered two but have a feeling they will be identical.

      • I broke down and ordered a second one. OY – make it stop!

    • “No repeats” was for the summer mystery box of awesome if you order more than 1. πŸ™‚

  44. How much longer do I have ? I’m really trying to fight the craving to buy another one?

    • This is the last day for it – so midnight will be the cut off. Hope that helps! πŸ™‚

      • Thank you. I don’t think I can make it until Midnight, lol.

  45. I bought one the first day, and I was super happy about it since I don’t sub to this one. But now, all these comments make me want to buy more. Good thing these aren’t actual drugs because the addiction is real and ya’ll are my pushers πŸ™‚

    • It’s probably cheaper to start doing drugs, at least for my sub addiction.

      • Rofl

      • I think it might be. I just keep thinking about the 80s drug PSAs, “It’ll make you feel good” and “I learned it by watching you”. They totally apply here.

        • lol! So true! It makes me feel so good to buy it. Then I feel guilty when the bills come and swear I won’t do it again. Then I feel good when the box comes. And I wish I had more. Repeat.

      • I laughed out loud at this! So true! Too funny ?

  46. I bought 3 over the past few days…might go up to 4 today…..

  47. The willpower it has taken me to resist ordering a second box is fading. Only a few more hours to stay strong! I was really hoping that Julep or Bare Escentuals would offer another mystery bag that would distract me from the PopSugar Mystery box. No such luck.

  48. I’m curious as to who purchased the most of these boxes. I saw someone the other day purchase FOUR ~ some to give away, I think. Anyone beat that number???? I purchased two & would purchase more if I knew that they wouldn’t be total repeats of eachother. πŸ™‚

    • I would buy more of these as Holiday gifts if they came with the products in an inner box like the birchbox LE gift boxes I gave last year. I can’t gift a box with my mailing label on it & I would need to open the outer box to check for damage before giving as a gift anyway. I think if I put the items in my own box they could look random. Any thoughts?

      • Since these aren’t actual monthly boxes, doesn’t sound like there will be much of a “theme” to them (so kinda like a regular month anyways since they hardly follow their theme… anyways). So even if you were able to give them in a popsugar outer box, it might still look random.
        You might have some luck (if you don’t get too many dups) if you open the boxes and then break up all the items into smaller boxes with some sort of theme? Then just find some cute birchbox-like holiday boxes to wrap them in.

        Its really hard saying since we have no clue what is going to come in them. But that didn’t stop me from ordering 4 (2 on Monday, 1 on Wednesday, 1 on Thursday… just want to see if I can avoid dups – well that’s my excuse anyways). I figure I’ll use a few things, maybe swap some, and then find a few gifts as well

    • um…5… *hangs head shamefully*

      • I’m impressed!! I got 4 so far…. and hoping to stay busy enough today that I forget about getting another 1 or 2 πŸ˜‰

      • You win!?

        • pregnancy horomones got me buying ALL THE THINGS

      • 5? I think you are the winner! Please let us know how the 5 boxes turned out. I’m curious to see what you receive. Look at it this way…100.00 for over 500 . 00 worth of stuff!

  49. Liz, you’ll make them give us the good stuff, right? No bingo, no tassels…;)

    • Haha…you must’ve read my mind! My first thought was that I hope I don’t get the bingo or tassel necklace! Despite my concern, I still ended up being sucked in and ordering 3…

      • My fear is December 2015. ?

  50. Liz so you know when they are going to or planning to ship these? Purchased 4 within the first hour the other day they were announced and So excited!

    • Orders will ship by July 15th via FedEx Smartpost. Hope that helps! And I purchased a few too – so excited πŸ™‚

      • That was exactly the information I was looking for! Yay! Thank you, Liz! πŸ™‚
