  1. I don’t think they will send swans since people who live in cold climates won’t be able to use for six months. Although if I get one I’m going to see if it can be used as a sled.

    • I’ve used similar blowups before they don’t last as long but do work as a sled

    • Ha, it’s a drink holder though…very small. I don’t think you can sit on it unless you’re doll size.

  2. It’s funny, everyone is so anti swan. I love mine. I actually swapped for two… mine is use on picnics and festivals. It’s such a hit. Holds our drinks perfectly I can dance without spilling… and the second I swapped for my mom. She actually does have a pool. And her and my dad are really into cheesy pool decorations. They have the pink plastic flamingos and everything…

    • I am glad someone loved them. I live in CA and I can’t imagine hauling a swan to events. And I don’t have a pool!

      Maybe a random gift for my niece and nephew if I get one!

    • Well Niki, if I get one you’re more than welcome to swap for it!! Ha

    • I love the swan! We have a pool so it gets a lot of use, either as a drink holder or as a toy/floatie for the kids.

  3. Everybody is talking about the swan… but what about the bingo? ๐Ÿ˜›

    • I think I’d be OK with the bingo even tho it’s not a game I’m into cuz if I remember correctly it looked pretty nice to display. I’m on the NO SWAN list lol and was sitting here thinking about how I’d love more Baggu bags but then remembered some of the ugly color variations so now I’m hopping for No Poo colored Baggu! This is going to be a long wait to see what we all get

      • You are awesome! Yes…it was a Poo colored Baggu! My husband loved it, and so I ended up keeping it after he saw it. I goes with all of the Carhartt and manly stuff. But…Poo! LOL. Thanks, I’ll have a smile for a while now.

    • I got that already, and gave it to my sister who loves Bingo. But if I get another, I don’t know what I’ll do with it!

    • Or the tassel necklace…

      • Haha not that

    • I’ve actually used the bingo game several times. It’s an easy thing to grab for kids school parties. I never thought I’d use it at all, but it’s been really handy! I’ll think we’ll use it for halloween with candy corn to mark the spaces.

  4. Alright….I took the leap and ordered 2 ! I am not a subscriber and this is my very first order, so hope they are worth the hype. I Love candles so I hope to get one…and that Beach Towel would be Awesome!!!…but like most others….Not the Swan….Please not the Swan…LOL!

    • I got a candle during the last all star box. It melted all over my box. It was horrible. At least now it’s cooler out so you shouldn’t have that problem

  5. I bought only one once again. Last time my box was 50/50 for me, but ended up having some nice spare gifts. At least this time is closer to holidays ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Like almost everyone else, I’m hoping for NO SWAN, but some amazing things that could be Christmas gifts or birthday gifts.

    I also bought 2.

  7. I went ahead and got one. Last time I got two and I was pleased with them. Hopefully it will be good ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t been a subscriber since March or April.

  8. Got one but may end up getting another one (just like last time) Lol I don’t subscribe so I only have things i’ve swapped for or were in the last two mystery boxes I got (plus things from the first few months of the mini).

  9. I wish some stuff leftover from the LE boxes would make it into a mystery box… but knowing my luck I’d get stuck with the pompom keychain or inflatable swan.

    I’m assuming since a PS Mini box is also in the pic, that some items might be from the Mini boxes?

    • On the facebook page they wrote that there are not items from the limited edition or mini boxes, just the monthly boxes.

      • I correct myself. They don’t say items won’t be from mini boxes, only that there is not a mini box mystery box at this time.

  10. I caved and bought a second box after reading their facebook comments. I don’t subscribe so everything should be new to me.

  11. Any idea when these boxes will ship? Last time they had a specific date that was a few weeks out if I remember correctly.

    • Website says will ship by October 17th (via FedEx Smartpost))

    • The website states they will ship by Oct 17 via FedEx Smart Post.

    • It says they’ll ship by Oct 17th

    • Just got a notice that mine has shipped today.

      • Kellyg is your shipping notice for the October box? I received a shipping notice from Popsugar for the October box.

    • Mine shipped on the 13th! They’ll send you an email…

      • When I ordered my boxes, I think it said they would ship by October 17. I haven’t gotten a shipping email yet, but I hope they will be shipping soon!

  12. Not that I NEEDED a box, but I only subscribe to beauty boxes right now. After seeing everyone’s excitement and remembering the great boxes from the last round… I couldn’t resist being a part of all the talk about weight and excitement about the contents. Everything will be new to me and I’m looking forward to all the fun. Debating about a second box already. This sub addiction is out of control. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  13. I was going to buy only one box but then I read all the comments here and ended up ordering two boxes. I do not sub to this subscription but I did buy the the June & July boxes with the Gilt deal. Hopefully it’s none of the items from those boxes.

    • I took a chance on the previous Mystery Box and only liked few of the items. Managed to make a slight profit from the cost of the box by selling what I couldn’t use at yard sale.

    • I got one of the a great mystery boxes last time but remember the gilt deals came up just a few days after and scooped up a box there too. I liked knowing exactly want I was getting, even though I did luck out and get a “great” mystery box last time ( tarteโค, bin, frame and straws and 2 more items I can’t even remember) I don’t think I’m going to risk it this time bc i don’t want a book ๐Ÿ˜ถ. I loved my eye shadows, but the other items were not things I would have wanted for myself, it was mostly msa hype that made me feel so happy to get a bin! ๐Ÿ˜‚(Still sitting empty together with empty frame…but im sure someday I’ll enjoy them) . It would help to know where they are pulling items from, since I still think fall/ winter boxes have more “useful” items than some summer ones.
      I’ll keep waiting ๐Ÿ˜”….till FOMO pushes me over the edge.

    • I didn’t do the gilt deal but regretted if afterwards. I hope they do something like that again!

  14. I’ll probably order one. I’ve subscribed in the past and I’m always let down. However, the last mystery box was the best box I have ever recieved. I just hope the items are different this time around. There were certain items last time that appeared in almost every variation of the box.

  15. I broke down and ordered two…I am hoping they are as good as last time!

  16. It won’t let me change my payment method. Grr. Maybe I don’t need this.

    • If you click on your current one, it should pop open an option to change it. That’s what happened when I was trying to change.

  17. I’m so weak! I just ordered two mystery boxes, and I’ve never subbed to this box before! LOL

  18. My wish for the Popsugar fairy? A spongelle and pecan honey mustard. What’s on everyone else’s wish list?

    • My wish would be for a scarf (preferably the heart one from February and not the summer one from June because I thought that box off GiltCity).

      I also wish to not be sent any books, haha

      • What is gilt? I’ve seen multiple people mention it

        • Gilt ( or Gilt City) has periodic sales and deals. Usually MSA will email us when there is a good deal on subscription box-type offerings. I tried BeautyDNA though Gilt, and I am glad that I got a discount on that particular sub, as I have been disappointed by it. Definitely worth checking out Gilt when it has these types of deals.

    • I’m hoping for that fabulous soap I got in the last mystery box, as well as the honey mustard everyone raves about, and the candle…

    • I’m hoping for a candle or maybe that awesome beach towel!

  19. This is all new to me and I just got one because FOMO, but do I need two??! Is it not the same stuff??

    • YES!! Last time was really good and there were 8 different boxes sent out. I bought 5 last time and didn’t get a duplicate. I purchased 5 more this time and I’m optimistic that the selection will be just as good if not better.
      They need to keep it exciting because we all pull back if one release is disappointing.
      Worst case scenario and you get a duplicate, I’m sure you can gift it for the holidays.

      • This is exciting! Just got another one. I just subbed to the main box this week and haven’t got anything yet so I don’t have to worry about old dupes. ๐Ÿ™‚ How fun and addicting!!

      • Good to know! I hope I don’t get duplicates but if I do those will go to my work Secret Santa!

  20. You guys are no help at all on my budget!! LOL! I was kind of so-so when I got the email but thought I’d see what the comments were before I totally passed. Just ordered 3!

  21. Got one, thank you!! I’d love anything but the hat, I’m too old to pull it off!

  22. I’m praying for a pehr bin or baggu duck bag! Please please please PS gods!

  23. Couldn’t help myself, just ordered 2! I stopped subscribing to PS because I just couldn’t find value for me for $40 in the last several months, but I absolutely loved the last mystery box I got. So I hope for double the love this time!

  24. Yep. Got two. No self control, at all. Hope it’s good stuff.

  25. I bought two!!! I loved the last one!!!!! YAY!!!!

  26. I loved this last time so I’m going to do this again, no hesitation!

  27. I really wasn’t going to get one. But you guys are so flaming excited ๐Ÿ’ฅ – buying multiples and all – I ordered one. Only one though, lol
    Wish me luck I don’t get the inflatable swan or any of the other things that stopped me buying recent Must Have boxes.

    • A box with seven inflatable swans XD

      • Hahaha…perfect for the holidays! (Now I have the Twelve Days of Christmas in my head…)

      • I love Swanee my drink Swan! I hope they send her again!

      • You are a wonderfully sick and twisted individual. I am at the point where I really want to order one…but now I think I’m going to get exactly what you described. Karma…

      • One swan would make a good white elephant gift!

  28. Bought two – yay!

  29. Hi Liz! Do you know if they are going to give the same items as the last mystery box ? Or will they be updated ?

    • I will ask and let you know!

  30. Bought 2, with Christmas coming I felt like it was a pretty safe bet:)

    • That’s exactly what I was thinking too!

  31. Well, I picked up one too. I really debated though. I don’t need any thing else. But I loved my last mystery box, so I caved! Fingers crossed I’ll love this box too. If not, I could always use them for gifts.

  32. Ordered 2 and wondering if I should order more!?! Tempted but worried I’ll end up with multiple inflatable swans or something lol. Last time I only ordered 1 and kicked myself later. Hmmm..The dilemmas of an addict.

    Do y’all think there is more chance of variation in the boxes if we order them separately or at different timeframes/days? Like would I be better to wait and place another order tomorrow?

    • I ordered 5 last time and I didn’t get any doubles. I think there were 8 variations of boxes, if they do that, then I can safely say we are in good hands.
      I got 5 again this time, holidays are coming up so they would make for terrific gifts.

      • You just talked me into the 2 more I was teetering on getting – truth be told I was almost there already but seeing your comment made me click quicker lol – I figure I can’t go wrong if I keep it at $100 ๐Ÿ™‚ My last box was #7 I think and I loved it! Behr bin, masks, frame, straws, etc..

        Fingers crossed these are awesome too!

        • I got that as one of my boxes. The Pehr bin is really useful. I am drowning in mustard though. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • I don’t like mustard BUT from all of the comments on MSA and Liz’s awesome reviews I plan to try it if I end up with some! Apparently I am easily influenced ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. Snagged 5 of these. Last time, I also bought 5 and got lots of different goodies. I hope it’s as good as last time! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh PopSugar, my credit card is hurting.

  34. Oh maaaaaaaaaan… So tempting but so scary! There could be some awful stuff in these… but they did a really good job last time… Uuuuugh… I need to look back over the last year’s worth of boxes and see what I would want more of.

  35. I caved so quickly & ordered 2. I got two last time & felt like I got my money’s worth. If nothing else this time is close enough to Christmas that I could see setting aside a few items for gifts.

  36. Bought two. Even if they aren’t things I want, with Christmas around the corner, these boxes breaking down to $3-4 per item is still really good for potential little gifts….

  37. I would hate to get items I’ve already received over the last 6 or so months… I’ll have to pass. This would be great if I hadn’t already been subscribed.

  38. I bought 2… last time I only got 1 and I wished I had bought more. I got my least favorite variation, but I still liked it.

    • Same here, I bought one last time and compared to the other variations mine was ok. I’m debating if I should buy one or two. Oh the dilemma ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

      • I saw a comment on the FB page that they would try to send different boxes, but no promises…

  39. Well, I caved. Took about 3 minutes. The FOMO was too strong. Now I have FOBS (fear of being screwed)! ๐Ÿ˜€ I mean, this could all be stuff from Jul-Sept, none of which I loved in the first place.

    • FOBS hahaha I’m going to start using that!

    • OMG! Mary, you crack me up. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Last time they did a terrific job of making sure we got a good assortment. I can’t wait to see everyone’s posts on how much their package weighs.
      That was actually a big part of the fun, the many reveals along with the anticipation.
      I hope none of us gets screwed or it’s the end of popsugar! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’m right there with you about the FOMO and FOBS but I liked some of the summer stuff – can’t help but wish they throw in some Baggu bags – definitely don’t want any swans tho!

  40. Bought 2! Hoping I don’t get that darn swan… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • LOL EVERYONE is hoping they don’t get that swan!!!

  41. I did not hesitate but only bought one. My last PS mystery box was my favorite box of all time. Every single item was a super win for me (even the paper straws!).

  42. I am NOT letting this pass me by this time! I bought two!!! Whatever I don’t like will make amazing Christmas/birthday presents. Thank you My Subscription Addiction for letting us know. I can’t wait to receive mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Ordered two last time. I received the two boxes I least wanted but – still signed up for two this time!

    I have no control.

  44. If still available tomorrow, I might. I just do not want the same items that I received during the last mystery sale. ..except for that darn mustard…If all 7 items were that mustard, I would order 10 boxes!

    • That mustard is soooo good!

    • How do you use it? I still have it sitting:(

      • I use it to make salad dressing: olive oil, balsamic vinegar, the mustard, salt, and pepper. It’s great with spinach ๐Ÿ˜€

  45. squee! the last one was great. hope this one is similar. holding back on buying more than one. agh.

  46. Got 3 boxes ๐Ÿ˜ฎ yay. Very excited.

  47. Yeah, I bought two….FOMO….

    • Does FOMO stand for “Fear Of Monthly Overload”? If so…I am with you.

      • F’d Over Monthly On $

        • I thought it meant fear of missing out!

  48. Oh no……… dare I do it again? And I just signed up for a new sub five minutes ago! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Notice the price increase, though. I bet their last mystery box was a huge success and they figured they could nudge up the price a bit and people would still snap them up.

    • I think their last mystery boxes contained six items rather than seven, so that may account for the price difference.

      • OK, thanks!

      • Yes, and I think they were guaranteed to have $100, not $125.

  49. zero hesitation ! bought this right away! it was so fun to receive it last time!

    Do you know if there will there be variations in multiple purchases?

    • Nevermind I see they clearly say on their website that items may vary!

    • I’m wondering this as well… trying to decide whether to buy 1 or 2.

      • Same. I got one last time and kinda wished I got two for easy xmas gifts. I was able to trade/sell anything I didn’t want to give as a gift. Get two and skip going out to dinner this weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚
