  1. I’m wondering when we should expect those boxes to start shipping (both the subscription itself and the extra bonus).

    • I was told December for both…

      • I got the subscription box today -but not the bonus box

  2. So which is the better offer? Seems the MSA is, but making sure I’m not missing something with the RueLaLa deal.

    • I think it’s individual. If you go look at the reviews the items are listed. Then pick which one you like or will use the most items on. Value is in what you will use more than just a retail value for me.

  3. @Liz So I used the link for the Rue La La Holiday Bundle and paid the $39.99 + shipping and tax (total of $48.79) It says all over the page that your ordering that specific box and even has the items listed in detail during checkout. BUT I just got the confirmation email and it said “thanks for your order you’ll get 3 monthly boxes plus:

    Bonus Beauty Bundle ($105 Value!) Includes:

    Beautycounter Mascara – Full Size
    Cargo Color Stick in Champagne – Full Size
    Laritzy Lip Pencil in Cabernet – Full Size
    Doucce Eyeshadow in Coppery Brown – Full Size
    Sigma Brush – Travel Size”

    I literally do not want any of the items listed in the email and if I get this stuff INSTEAD of the Rue La La box I ordered and paid for I’m going to come undone!! Is anyone else experiencing this or know what is going on???

    • Same here…I emailed them to get clarification and they said they couldn’t find my account, even though I forwarded the confirmation email. Planning on calling tomorrow.

      • So glad I’m not alone! I saw Liz had got a hold of Allure and they said it was just a generic email and that we will actually get the boxes that we bought.. we shall see what shows up 👁👁 you Allure 👁👁

  4. I signed up for the Black Friday deal that includes a Rue La La box worth $184, but the confirmation email I got said that I was getting a bonus beauty box worth $105. Is this a bait and switch? Has this happened to anyone else? I emailed them, but have not gotten a response.

    • Nope, sorry, the Allure team confirmed that the email was just generic text, but that you will be getting the box you signed up for.

      • I didn’t receive the Beauty Thrills–just a box with 6 past items in it.

        • Was it a November box?

  5. It looks like my order may have been cancelled? I couldn’t find any order info in my account (despite getting confirmation email) so checked my bank. It looks like I received a deposit at the same time I ordered in the same amount (wierd.) I emailed them to ask what’s up.

    • I had the same thing happen when I first ordered on the first day. Sent email, 2 days later they replied and said call. I called and he said it is because I was already subscribed so reads it as a duplicate order. He cancelled my subscription, and said reorder it and should have no problems. He was extremely nice and took less than 5 minutes. I reordered and so far no charge back 🙂

  6. Does anybody know what name will show up on your bank account for this charge?

    • It shows up as Conde Nast magazines on your credit card statement

  7. Allure is a complete fraud!!! I don’t know why your site continues to endorse this company. I have been a faithful customer for years but it the past 2 years, all this company does is charge my credit card, hold on the money while earning interest without any intention of shipping the product. Think how much money this company is making holding customers’ money for MONTHS at a time without fulfilling the product. And this offer is complete false advertising. Unbelievable!!!

    • And you’ve remained a faithful subscriber the past two years despite the fact that you never receive your boxes?

      • No, that’s not at all what I said. Are you an Allure customer? I’m primarly speaking about the beauty thrills boxes. Over the past year or so, Allure has charged my credit card and then not sent the boxes for over 6-8 weeks…all the while earning interest on my money and your money if you are a customer. Most recently I didn’t receive the box at all for over 2 months. I decided to give it one lady try because I trust this site. Then to a confirmation that what is advertised isn’t what will be received. I just wanted to warn others. I think it’s unethical to charge a credit card and not ship the product and not even be able to provide the customer a shipment date.

  8. They cancelled me!! No email. Just was notified by my credit card. Really not happy with allure

    • This was for my college student daughter. Different name, email, credit card. Only the address is the same.

      I emailed them and explained she uses our address as her permanent residence and asked if they’d reinstate the order. BTW, they refunded the wrong credit card and didn’t send any notification.

      I really want my December box. So if they don’t cooperate, I’ll cancel after that box ships. And I’ll ask for a refund for the blush I never received.

      • I have an allure monthly sub and I just ordered this holiday deal for 3 months for my older teenage daughter who is in high school- so she lives at home still. I am hoping that they don’t cancel that!!

  9. Is anyone else having issues with the Allure website no being able to process their payment at this time?

    • YES!! They cancelled my order and emailed me to call customer service!
      The rep was less than helpful–kept putting me on hold to speak with a supervisor.
      I was not confident that the problem would be fixed–so, I opened a new account using my other email address and my daughter’s name–problem solved!
      I intend to cancel my original sub.
      The rep stated that there is a glitch in their system, which resulted in current subscribers having their orders cancelled. Supposedly, they are “working” on it. But due to the Boxy fiasco, I was not sure that it would be fixed before they ran out of the Beauty Thrills or Rue La La boxes.

      • I got a very helpful rep. Was told a glitch in the system and would have gotten two Nov. boxes. She reordered so my first box would start with the Dec. box. I’ve been with Allure for quite some time and always have good luck with customer service.

      • So funny story….. my bank put my card on hold. It seems that all this beauty box buying looked suspicious to them. And the CS told me to keep trying that maybe the system was down. And every time I tried it sent a hold to my bank account. So they thought it was fraud….. it went through now….. 😜

      • Update–just got off the phone with Allure customer service.
        Was informed that the November box is still in the warehouse and that Allure has not placed the orders for the Beauty Thrills boxes yet!
        I’m extremely upset–parts of the Thrills box was a Christmas gift–now, I have to spend extra money to replace it.
        After my sub runs out, I will not renew.

  10. UPDATE: So I had originally emailed Allure customer service yesterday about the information in the purchase confirmation email about the $105 beauty bundle and before Liz was able to clarify that it was outdated and we’ll indeed get what we order.

    In my email response back, the CSR stated nope, I’d have to order each box (Allure Beauty Box and the Beauty Thrills box) separately. Uh…it sounded like she had no idea about the MSA promotion, even though I was clear and specific in detailing it. So I called the number that showed up on the confirmation website page for this deal ending in 8085. You bet I screen shot that sucker. Nope, not the right number to call, that goes to the CS for Conde Nast publishing, even though no magazines were ordered.

    So I then call the number in the confirmation email ending in 1603 and yup, that’s the one. I come to find out my order was cancelled! Even though I cancelled my Allure Beauty Box subscription and received my last box in August 2016, they still had me in their system as “active” and auto cancelled me for what looked like a duplicate order. The CSR then had a supervisor take me out of their system and put the order back in. She stated my first box would start with December. We’ll see.

    In case any of you ladies were previous subscribers, even if you previously cancelled online, you might still be ‘active’ and your order may have gotten cancelled like mine did. Might be worth calling and double checking.

    • I too received the same cancellation e-mail. Called customer service and they explained that there is a “glitch” in their system.
      I went ahead and ordered using my daughter’s name and an alternate e-mail address–not taking any chances!
      I will cancel my current Allure subscription– that way, no “dupes”!

      • How long did it take to get the cancellation email? I have only gotten my confirmation email. I did not cancel before purchasing the new deal. I just emailed them to confirm that my account is good to get the above special.

        • I got my email confirmation at 8:55 AM and the cancellation at 2:50 PM.

          • I never got a cancellation email. My email response was that they corrected my account and would get the 3 month promo price with the mystery thrills box. I have had a chance to check my cc to see what charges are on it.

          • My email must have worked!!! My account order date was updated to 11/22. Now… to see if I get all that was promised 😜. Still waiting on my “please join again” marc jacobs gift.

          • And… I just checked my cc and it has a credit for the same amount as the charge… emailed them to follow up. It would be nice to get it all free😜, but I don’t think that is likely…,

  11. I emailed Allure, I’m currently subscribed. They said I would have to cancel my current subscription then order on December the 1st and I would get no repeats. I inquired about the free Thrills box. Hope that it helps someone

  12. This website is a slippery slope 😉 Just signed up and chose the Rue La La bonus box. Of course in my defense I plan to gift two months of the subscription to a friend!

  13. Okay, so I want to sub but I really don’t want the November box. There’s nothing in it I want.

    Any chance this will still be available on Dec 1? Or that I might be able to start my sub with December??

  14. Thank you MSA, I got the deal with beauty thrills because why not? I’d probably have sprung for the Allure box at some point in the next couple of months so might as well get the bonus now. I’ve gone in and out with Allure a couple times and have not had any of the customer service problems others have had, knock on wood.

  15. I really like Allure so this enticed me to re-subscribe!

    Anyone know if the first box will be November or December?

  16. Wow! What a great deal! Thank you, Liz 😚😚😚

  17. Awww, I should have cancelled and got this deal….I guess I’ll know better next year….I don’t like canceling and going back….kinda like to stay there and ride it through..lol…but wish they had a discount thrills box for the other subbies!! I spaced out and missed it when it was released :(( do they release them just once a year??

  18. I would really like this deal. But I’m already a subscriber. And if I call and cancel and then resubscribe, then I’ll probably get another November box, and I don’t want 2. I hope they come out with something for current subscribers 🙁

    • I just called and was told it would be December.

  19. The links to the deals don’t work 🙁

  20. Like @Marilyn, I’m also wondering if current monthly subscribers can upgrade to the 3-mo sub and get the deal.

    • I’m a current subscriber. When I clicked on the link above, the fine print stated that when the 3 months was up, my normal sub would resume at the price I had originally signed up for. So, for $45.90, I got 3 months of the allure beauty box, plus the allure beauty thrills box.

      • Thank you so much! I hadn’t read the fine print. I ordered also and did a screen capture on the fine print in case there is an issue later.

        • Thanks for pointing out the fine print! It looks like it should apply for us current subscribers. I am just going to expect an extra November box. The thrills items look like they are coming from multiple boxes, but for 5.95 shipping… there should be at least one item I want😜

        • I decided to give it a try. The worst that could happen is they cancel it since I’m a current subscriber.

      • Did you cancel your month to month first? Or are you getting two?

        • I didn’t cancel, nor should I receive 2. In the fine print it says once the 3 month deal is up, my normal month to month subscription will resume at the price I originally signed up for. So, for the next 3 months, I won’t be charged my month to month, since I just paid for 3 months plus bonus in advance.

          • Thanks! I did the same now.

  21. I ordered through the Beauty Thrills link and got the same email. Hoping it does work out in spite of the confusing email!

  22. None of the links are working for me. Tried several browsers 🙁

    • Have you tried clicking the blue text above (Where it says rue La La or Thrills) instead of the “click this link”?

    • Me either. And I’ve tried clicking all the different links.

    • They aren’t working for me either 🙁

      • Do you run adblock on your browser? Pause adblock and the link will work just fine (:

  23. Darn, I ordered the Rue Lala separate last week and now I see that’s it’s free with a 3 month sub! Oh well, can’t win them all I reckon!
    Just took advantage of this Thrills deal. I was wondering what that were doing with all of the surplus Thrills boxes since they weren’t offering any at a discount! I sure wasn’t paying $60(with tax) for all of those repeats but I’ll take it as part of this deal because their are some useful staples.

  24. Is there a way to send the beauty thrills deal as a gift subscription?

  25. I called and talked to Josie, a supervisor. She said the Rue La La box contains the items listed on the sign up page ($184 value), not the confirmation ($105 value). She apologized for the confusion. Liz, if you learn something different, please let us know!!

    • Just heard back from Allure, that’s correct, follow what you see here/on the links, and ignore the text on the email – it’s generic text they are going to remove.

  26. Are all the deals today for new subscriptions? I’m an annual Allure subscriber and was hoping for a good deal on an extra box.

  27. What if I have a monthly subscription? can I upgrade it to the 3 months and get the deals?

  28. I got the same confirmation as others, not the deal I bought. 🙁 Liz, can you figure out what’s up here? I’m so confused.

    • Yes, we’ve reached out to Allure – hoping to hear back soon. They specifically set up these deal pages for these two different deals, so I’m guessing they just forgot to update the confirmation email text, not that subscribers won’t be getting what they signed up for. I’ll update as soon as I hear back!

      Sorry about this!

    • Update. The email text was incorrect and they will be fixing it. But you will be getting exactly what you signed up for, not what was in the email. Sorry about that confusion!

  29. It seems like instead of a past Beauty Thrills it is only $100 worth of products?

    • I think they just forgot to update the text at the bottom of the confirmation email. We’ve been in contact with Allure for this deal, and we just reached out again to let them know about the confirmation email text. I’ll let you know as soon as we hear back!

      • I got the same message in my confirmation. If this is what they are going to provide, then I want to cancel because this was false advertising…I would have opted for the RueLaLa cyber deal instead of the Thrills.

        • I ordered the Rue La La and got the exact same confirmation email…so hopefully I get the right box. I also will cancel if we get what’s in the email instead of the extra box.

    • Update. The email text was incorrect and they will be fixing it. But you will be getting exactly what you signed up for, not what was in the email. Sorry about that confusion!

  30. Sad face. Ordered through the Thrills link with the Thrills pictures but my confirmation email shows I’m getting the beauty bundle that Theresa O listed. Oh Allure I try to love you.

    • I think they just forgot to update the text at the bottom of the confirmation email. We’ve been in contact with Allure for this deal, and we just reached out again to let them know about the confirmation email text. I’ll let you know as soon as we hear back! Sorry about this!

  31. Does the Rue La La box come with full size items? Thanks!

    • No. They’re deluxe samples.

      • Thanks for the info!

  32. I just ordered the one with the beauty thrills box and this is what the confirmation email said I’m getting:

    For your payment of $39, you will receive a total 13% discount on your next three (3) Allure Beauty Boxes, plus a free gift valued at over $100. This is a one-time only offer. Payment must be made in full in advance. After you receive the third Allure Beauty Box from this Discount Offer, your Allure Beauty Box subscription will resume based on the terms and price of your original subscription, unless you take action to cancel your original subscription within twenty-one (21) days from the date your third discounted Allure Beauty Box is shipped. ALL PURCHASES OF THIS OFFER ARE FINAL, NON TRANSFERABLE, NON CANCELLABLE, AND NON REFUNDABLE.

    Bonus Beauty Bundle ($105 Value!) Includes:

    Beautycounter Mascara – Full Size
    Cargo Color Stick in Champagne – Full Size
    Laritzy Lip Pencil in Cabernet – Full Size
    Doucce Eyeshadow in Coppery Brown – Full Size
    Sigma Brush – Travel Size

    But the message before I ordered said this:

    Lock in your first 3 Allure Beauty Boxes and an exclusive Beauty Thrills box filled with 19+ mystery products – all for just $39.95* – NOW! With over $400 in value, you’ll save over 84%. Hurry – limited quantity available, while supplies last!

    I don’t understand…..

    • I think they just forgot to update the text at the bottom of the confirmation email. We’ve been in contact with Allure for this deal, and we just reached out again to let them know about the confirmation email text. I’ll let you know as soon as we hear back!

    • Update. The email text was incorrect and they will be fixing it. But you will be getting exactly what you signed up for, not what was in the email. Sorry about that confusion!

      • Thanks, Liz…As usual, you are amazing!!!

  33. If I could pick which Beauty Thrills box I’d get, I’d be tempted to get this. But there were one or two of those boxes that had virtually nothing of interest to me in them.

  34. Yes!!! Both deals are great. 🙂 I ended up going with the Rue La La even though its slightly lower RV than the thrills since more of the items seem useful to me than the possible thrills boxes.

    However, there is shipping/handling and for me there was sales tax, so it came to 48.88. 🙁 So it’s not any cheaper than three months of allure, but it is getting an amazing bonus box for a few dollars extra.

    • Did you get a confirmation email stating what you would receive in your “bonus” Rue LaLa Box?

      • My email was the same as listed here and I ordered the Rue La La.

  35. This is a pretty awesome deal, I think. I was going to subscribe to the Allure box anyway…but getting one of their Thrills boxes for free is a huge bonus!
    My only gripe is that my total was actually $49.35, not $39.95…tax was added ($3.45) and shipping ($5.95), which I wasn’t expecting, and a total amount wasn’t provided until after I hit the order button. But that’s my fault for not reading the fine print!

    • This $5.95 shipping was stated in the teeny tiny fine print at the bottom of the page. Tax has to be charged according to your state and local laws.

    • Thanks for letting us know about the shipping and tax. Sorry about that! I’ve added that info to the post so it’s clear up front.

    • Amendment to my “this is an awesome deal” comment…
      To recap:
      Top of their page says “exclusive Beauty Thrills box filled with 19+ mystery products –With over $400 in value”

      Bottom of page in fine print says “plus a free gift with 19+ mystery products valued at over $250”

      In welcome email after I signed up “ plus a free gift valued at over $100“
      🤔

      • Maybe the $400 value comes from the three beauty boxes plus the Beauty Thrills box?

      • Update: The email text was incorrect and they will be fixing it. But you will be getting exactly what you signed up for, not what was in the email. Sorry about that confusion!

  36. I called customer service and cancelled my monthly subscription that I pay $16.09 for each month and then immediately reordered using the Thrills link and was able to do it for $45.90, great deal! Thanks Liz!

    • I did the same thing. This is a good deal, although I am on product overload. Oh well hahaha.

  37. If Im already a subscriber I can’t get these deals until I email and cancel my box or call?if i add this on top they will cancel most likely like they did with the Oct box.

  38. I signed up in Oct and have not received Oct/Nov or the blush.
    Every time I contact them they just give me canned responses. Finally they said one was on the way, well the shipping facility is STILL waiting for it to show up 5 days later.
    Such a horrible experience with them so far. I feel like they have pretty much just stolen my money.

    • Exact. Same. Experience.

    • Same thing with me. It’s not a good deal if I never actually get anything. I will not purchase no matter how great it is! Have been told since middle of October it was just shipping out and still nothing.

  39. So it’s either the Thrills box with the five Wens or the Rue La La box with the Doucce palette we all already have?

    I don’t mean to sound so negative, this is a good deal, really – I just wish it was for something else… 🙁

    • I agree. It is a great value but none of the boxes have anything I really want or would choose to buy. My money is safe, for now. 🙂

  40. I ordered this and this is what it said they would send.

    Bonus Beauty Bundle ($105 Value!) Includes:

    Beautycounter Mascara – Full Size
    Cargo Color Stick in Champagne – Full Size
    Laritzy Lip Pencil in Cabernet – Full Size
    Doucce Eyeshadow in Coppery Brown – Full Size
    Sigma Brush – Travel Size

    • Glad I held off. That doesn’t look like the deal that is shown???

    • Wait so you don’t get everything on the list?
      Ҡ Bonus Beauty Bundle ($184 Value!) Includes:

      Klorane Sampoo Olive Extract

      Plus sales tax where applicable.”

    • I had the exact same information in my order confirmation email even though I ordered with the past Beauty Thrills box. I emailed customer support to clarify.

    • I saw the same thing.. looks like it is instead of the Beauty Thrills box?

    • My confirmation email said the same thing. I called and the representative told me that I’m for sure getting the Beauty Thrils with the 3 months subscription. Maybe we’ll also get the Beauty bundle as a bonus. Lol.

    • I received confirmation for same. I called and they couldn’t verify because it isn’t in the system yet. They told me to call back tomorrow.

    • I received exactly the same e-mail
      Confirmation. Called Allure and they told me I should reach out to MSA because they didn’t know anything about this deal. Can we get some clarification on this from MSA?

      • The Allur representative told me that my order went through correctly and that I was getting the 3 months + the Beauty thrills. I would maybe call back and double check. Maybe on their side it doesn’t show as MSA deal, ya know?

    • Oh no, sounds shady like the tarte blush deal that never happened…

    • I think they just forgot to update the text at the bottom of the confirmation email. We’ve been in contact with Allure for this deal, and we just reached out again to let them know about the confirmation email text. I’ll let you know as soon as we hear back!

    • Update: The email text was incorrect and they will be fixing it. But you will be getting exactly what you signed up for, not what was in the email. Sorry about that confusion!

  41. Liz, no deals for current subscribers?

  42. First purchase of the day! I wanted the allure Dec box, and this Rue La La box looks great. Charged me shipping + tax, so total was closer to $50. Hope the Rue La La box is as good as it looks!

  43. The links worked for me…I don’t know which one to get! They are both good deals.

  44. I bought the one with the “free” thrills box. My order came to $45.90. I’m happy, as I only bought the first Thrills box, so I’ll be really happy if I get any other one, than that one!

  45. Allure has the worst customer service Ive ever experienced. Never again.

    • Truth!!

  46. The link worked for me. Allure is one of my favorites and I had just cancelled to save some money. Oh well!

    Will November or December be my first box, does anybody know?

    • Wondering the same thing! The November box looks great so I hope that’s my first one.

      • Me too Mary! I want that unicorn brush and haven’t been successful through the swap site!

  47. The links are not working. 🙁

    • Same, but I right clicked, copied and pasted and that seemed to do the trick.

  48. I sure hope THESE free gifts will show up for the people who subscribe… *pouting over in the corner because I never received the free Tarte Blush promised months ago*

    • I have not received my blush either.

      • ditto

    • They ship the free items separate. Contact them and they should make sure they send it. I had to do that a couple of months ago, and they did send the bonus item.

      • I contacted them by phone and email about it and it’s been 2 months that many of us have been waiting for our blush!!!

      • I’ve called 4 times and not I still don’t have it, so not really.

    • Same and when I contacted them to ask about it, they didn’t even answer my question!! I cancelled. Terrible experience with them!!

  49. So kinda like buying one thrill box and getting a free three month sub to allure beauty box. Sweet!

  50. The links are not working for me. (The didn’t for the Robb Vices post either.)
