  1. A little disappointed in th is so far. They said everything was shipping by the 15th, but so far, this evening, I received a tracking number that says it is in pre-shipment. I know they didn’t guarantee before Christmas, but would have been nice to get it before then anyway.

    • I’ve been waiting to get that “shipped email” ……… not happening…. that’s disappointing…. 🙁

      • I just got the shipped email and I’m happy………. it has to have been a huge huge huge amount of work to try and fulfill people’s wish list……. even to get them one request….. Kudos to their customer service!!! Happy Holidays to all!! Thanks for the remarkable effort… 🙂

        • Thanks for the kind words, Judy!

    • Hi Jess! Due to the holiday season, we have seen the USPS scanning in packages a little slower than usual. Barring any delays, you should receive before Christmas, as we ship USPS Priority. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

  2. I’m losing confidence in this box now.

    After scoping out the forum it sounds like people are getting filler items, with no focus on their requested pieces (even people who are members and were supposed to be given top pick).

    • I totally lost confidence when I realized most of the boxes had already shipped and here it is the 13th …………. I can’t imagine that what’s left would be anything but filler….. next year, mystery box money will be spent at Macys or Nordies instead…. 🙂

      • Hello Allison and Judy! Each of our boxes are hand packed with consideration to each request submitted. As stated above, requests are prioritized higher for subscribers and and customers who purchased multiple boxes. Whether a customer receives an item they requested or not depends on the items they requested, our stock availability, and what items were requested by people higher on the priority list. Reviewing each request is very time intensive, but it is something we wanted to offer because we are happy to provide our customers with the specific items they would like to receive if at all possible. I would also say there is not a correlation between boxes containing requested items and the timing of the shipment. The majority of boxes will be shipped over the next three days.

        Feel free to contact us directly if you have any additional questions!

        • Hi HR! I love it when you guys weigh in!

          I think it’s quite evident that your team works very hard and puts a lot of energy into making your customers happy. We all know the risks involved with mystery boxes, and willingly accept them when we make the purchase.

          I’m looking forward to seeing what I get (regardless of the contents), and I’m hoping that you guys will offer this kind of “bonus” box again from time to time.

          • Nicely put Allison!!! Totally agree with everything….

        • When do these ship? I ordered and still haven’t received anything but an email that my order was placed

          • They did respond yesterday (see above) that the majority of the boxes would be shipped within the next 3 days…. assume 13th-15th….

  3. Has anyone heard about shipping?

    I ordered 2 mystery boxes on the 22nd and received emails that gave me order numbers and my payment details.

    It’s been crickets since then….

    I just logged in and see nothing about mymystery boxorders… Just my payment info saved and account created. (I’m not a subscriber, so this was a one time purchase)

    Everything else I ordered on black Friday has been shipped, I received or I’m awaiting for shipment, with updates sent…

    Any updates from the community are appreciated!

    • The description says that so orders will be shipped by Dec 15. 🙂

    • I ordered 2 boxes on the 21st. No shipping details so far, and I’m counting the days until the 15th. If I get them in time, I still may be able to get some Xmas gifts out of it.

      Btw, this was the only BTBF deal I succumbed to. Just couldn’t resist! Hooray for Happy Rebel!!!

  4. Where did it give you the option to make a list?

  5. Hello MSA readers! It has been an exciting BTBF event so far. I hope y’all are having as much fun as we are 😀

    I wanted to let everyone know that we still have some mystery boxes, however the customization form has been closed. We still have a nice assortment of products available and will not be repeating items for customers purchasing multiple boxes.

    Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions.

    Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday!

    • I really would like to get one of these in “high” hopes of the blackout bag set, Minka throw blanket, and candle….but it clearly states that the minimum value is $138 and the blackout bag set is $168 rv by itself….

    • When will we get shipping confirmation emails? I checked my account and there is no record of my order there. Thank you.

      • Hi Lia! All mystery boxes will ship by December 15th. Feel free to contact us directly for questions regarding you order.

  6. The mystery boxes are still available but the wish list form is no longer online. I bought one box since I saw the wishlist feature and was hoping I could ask for the gray throw, the candle, and the faceted bowl, but am a little bummed I won’t be able to make any requests at all now.

    • Thanks for the heads up.. I was about to buy, but not sure I want to without the customization option.

      • I would email them. I messed up my online form yesterday and didn’t add any items. They told me to just select the items that I wanted by the end of the day.

        I took my time and went through all the MSA reviews, found what I wanted and passed the list along.

  8. I got a little too excited to order one of these and AFTER I ordered it I read that they will ship “by December 15th.” I was hoping to use the contents as Xmas gifts but I doubt it will be here before I travel for the holidays. Oh well. :/

  9. Got one and not a subscriber, so I am trying to manage expectations, but if they pull through on my one request I will be over the moon!

  10. Hands down Best Box and Customer Service! I’m an annual subscriber to 5 of the main boxes (FFF,BOS,Popsugar,etc). Had to use customer service with each. Happy Rebel is the best! Received a hand written note welcoming me in my first box. Also the items are great quality and nicely curated. Get this box, it’s worth it.

  11. Excited for the mystery! Purchased two and hoping for the kimono or mocha Minka throw more than anything. Would also love the print bag with leather handles from a while back. So nice to be asked what we would like. Shows consideration of the customer as an individual 🙂

  12. I just ordered one. I really like the idea of being able to send requests and that preference goes to subscribers(which I am not).
    That being said, it took me a while to decide because there are a couple boxes that were not my taste at all(kitchen and tech ones).
    But it’s a great price and I can always gift or trade.
    I am curious to see how this will work out for all of us and our wish lists 😊

  13. Ummm…I’m going to need a home after I’ve bought so many things. I’ll have lots of subscriptions and mystery boxes, cut up credit cards, clothes, and a “don’t return her” sign.

    • LOL!!

    • Same here! I’ve already started designing my next home, a two story home with a garage, all made from empty sub boxes. Obviously it won’t have a pool, but it will have plenty of pool swans! 🤷🏼‍♀️

  14. I’m curious what people are writing for their wish list 🙂 here’s mine:

    The cute kitchen prints from the spring 2017 box
    The usb outlet from the fall 2017 box
    The treat yo self mug from winter 2016
    The skull matches from winter 2016

    • My wish list was this: Schatzii Bullet Bluetooth 4.1 Earpiece + Charging Capsule and Phoozy Thermal Capsule. I hope I get them 🙂

      • I received my mystery box and requested the Shotzi bullet and I actually got it even though the retail value was more than the $138 it stated for mystery boxes! Thank you Happy Rebel for being so awesome!

        • I am not a subscriber and I wanted to get one but I wasn’t able to give a list so not knowing what I would receive I declined….I wanted the black bag set, throw, etc…

          I am happy for you I think anyone would enjoy that item as well!

          • Don’t forget that even the people who did submit requests do not know what they will receive 🙂 It’s a mystery box… HR was very clear requests were not guaranteed, and I totally get that. I submitted my requests and I’m just crossing my fingers! I am hoping for the matches and tea towels!

    • I still haven’t pulled the trigger… but I do like both the USB outlet and skull matches that you mention. I know a lot of people would love the black Brandon Blackwood bag from summer (but no one is really expecting to get it!).

      I would really like the Schatzii Bullet Bluetooth Earbud but that’s also a big ticket item. The Winter throw and candle from last year would be nice too. Or the round towel from summer 2016 or the clutch from their very first bag in spring 2016!!

      • I have the black bag from the summer box, it is so high quality and beautiful. I get compliments nonstop.

        I hope everyone can get what they’re requesting. This is pretty genius, let people pick one or 2 things then toss in some of the “inflatable swans” from overstock and everyone is happy.

        • You just made me laugh!

  15. I ordered this like two hours ago and still haven’t received a confirmation email… I wanted to pick two of my items. I tried using the order number that was on the page after check out. I didn’t get an email confirming my choices either. So idk

    • Check your junk box. Mine went there for some weird reason. They will take care of you. Seriously, Happy Rebel has the best customer service ever, along with Emma & Chloe. Amazing!

      Liz should do a “Best Customer Service” survey so we can give recognition to these companies that work so hard for their customers. Perhaps it would motivate those companies who shall remain unnamed. *COUGH*ouiplease*COUGH*glossybox*COUGH

      • I CHOKED ON THIS……….LOL ………… 😀 ……. perfect comment, great idea!!! I’ve only ever read good things about Happy Rebel………. can’t wait!!!

      • It’s not in spam folder either. The charge is on my card though. Weird..

        • Well customer service is amazing and replied super fast, confirming they received my order and wish list request. Yay 🙂

  16. Thanks Liz, I missed this one last time.

  17. Purchased 2 boxes and appreciate the wishlist. Happy Rebels customer care is something all boxes should strive for.

    • AGREED! How refreshing that a sub company isn’t just trying to combine random overstock into a “mystery”…. But they are actually STRIVING TO DELIVER AND LISTENING to their customers and prospects at the same time!!!

      This tells me this sub will only improve with time… I completely overlooked it prior to this post. Now I’m 2 boxes in and will purchase at least 2 more subscriptions!

      Thank you HAPPY REBEL and MSA!

  18. I also think I read that we may send the wish list within an hour after ordering. Did anyone else read that or did my brain make it up??

    • Yes you can! Link is above or on their item description page.

  19. Yay! Very excited about this. I bought one and sent in my wishlist. Fingers crossed they have some of the things I want available! Such a nice deal and super cool they are considering our requests. I’ve only been subbed a short time, but HR customer service and curation are top notch. Thanks for the deal!!

  20. It says the items could be from any of the past 7 boxes so no one will get anything from the winter box coming up?

    I looked at all 7 of the past reviews – I always enjoy reading them and think the curation looks excellent but there are only a few things that I’d REALLY want… I’m not a subscriber and wonder what my odds are to get even one of them?

    I’m not a risk taker so I think I’m going to pass on all these mystery boxes. Fun though!!

    • Shoot, I didn’t see that active subscriber /multiple boxes get preference until just now. I do not subscribe and only bought 1 box so I am for sure bottom of the list. Of course the one box I don’t subscribe to actually gives preference to their subscribers. Typically it’s just the new customers who get the perks. Ahh well, being the long time sub whore that I am I’m kinda use to throwing my money down the drain.

      • Meg – I didn’t see that either and would have bought 2 if I had – that said, pretty sure with Happy Rebel we won’t be throwing money down the drain – wish list is nice – and even if they can’t give you what you want, they have great customer service (they care) so I think these will be HAPPY BOXES!!! I’m taking them off my wish list come spring………………it’s long overdue!!! 🙂

  21. I have tried to order this since the post. Their site will accept my state choice in the drop down:0(

    • This was happening to me, too, and then I switched browsers and it went through fine. Good luck!

      • I went to the laptop instead of the tablet and it worked! Thanks an excited for my first happy rebel!

  22. I bought 2. I am hoping I will get the robe from this winter box but when I did the customization form I hit send before I put it my size. I emailed them the info though.

  23. Nice. So far this is the only BTBF deal I couldn’t resist.

    • Same here, love HR!

  24. Got one. What a nice offer! I really hope I get the MemoBottle. The Blackwood bag is gorgeous but lol. Unlikely.

    • Aaand I just went ahead and bought a second. Wow. But at least it says I’ll get preference in terms of requests. Fingers crossed.

  25. I just hope that I can get that blanket from last winter’s box for my daughter. I was going though the past reviews with her and she freaked out when she saw it. I know it would be the best Christmas gift ever, but I’m worried that it’s just not going to happen. 🙁

  26. Liz, you have to stop! You are making me go broke!

  27. Missed my chance last year with the mystery boxes, so I am excited to see this offer and to have caught it before they are all gone! Thanks Liz and Happy Rebel. 🙂

  28. Just got one ❤️ Does this sign us up for a subscription? Thanks Liz

    • Nope. This is separate from the subscription. Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Thanks Liz. Just asking bc I got a different email saying welcome to happy rebel box. Have a great and thanks for everything

  29. On their website the only boxes that didn’t sell out were the kitchen and tech boxes. Really hope the items aren’t from those since those are the only ones I probably wouldn’t use.

    • How did you see that? I’m going through MSA past box reviewsto see items…

      • Go to the happy rebel website and you can look at their past boxes there.

  30. I just ordered one box and am not a subscriber so I’ll probably be lowest priority in terms of my submitted wishlist but I’m looking forward to the surprise in the mail and am crossing my fingers for items on my wishlist 🙂

  31. Oh my goodness, I don’t even really remember going through the actions. I remember seeing this when I refreshed and 1 minute later I got a confirmation that I ordered 2 of them. I don’t even remember getting up to grab my card. Wow, that’s some crazy stuff there. lol

    • Same 😭😆

    • Ditto XD

    • I did the exact same thing! I am probably going to subscribe… I am just worried about whether robe will fit.

  32. There’s probably no shot at getting the Brandon Blackwood duffel, huh?

  33. I’M SO EXCITED about this one – I held off all day yesterday and squealed when I saw this today………… thank YOU Happy Rebel and MSA!!! 🙂

  34. Does anybody know if it will only be items currently in their shop, or is it any item ever featured?

    I LOVE the clutch and the necklace in the 1st box.

    • I emailed them and asked since there is no list of items. It’s a little confusing. There is no list. You have to write the items you want.

  35. I bought one without even reading the post. Last year they sold out so fast.

  36. Wow, didn’t even think about. Just ordered. LOL.

    • Me. Too.

    • Same!! They always sell out so fast!

    • For those that already ordered, was it a drop down menu of items you could select? Or do you just write what you want and hope it’s in stock?

      • After you order you can click on the link and go to a google form and submit your requests. It will ask your for you order number, and then anything you want to request.

      • You have to write. There is no drop down menu.

        • Thank you!

      • You fill out the google survey to state would you wish to get. There is no drop down selection when you order.
