POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Summer Box

Yay! It’s time for another POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition box!

The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Summer Box

The Cost: $100

The Products: Luxurious must have finds perfect for summer.

Ships: By June 7th

Are you grabbing one? I immediately bought one! (I think right now I’m in a stage where I will buy any box with the word summer in it – I’m so excited for warm weather!)

Now we’ll see if they sell out ASAP, or if POPSUGAR will give us a spoiler to sell out! (Check out my review of last summer’s POPSUGAR Limited Edition box if you want to see what type of value you can expect with this box).

  1. Popsugar just posted a spoiler on facebook!

    • Tarte Tipsy “fearless” (Pink Coral) cheek stain and lip tint.

  2. 422 boxes left. It is in the source code.

    • Can you tell me where it is on the page……I don’t see “source code” anywhere. That would be great for next time. I hate that you have to pay so far in advance, it would have been great if I had access to this information and could pay when the number of boxes started getting low.

      • If you’re in Chrome, under “view” -“developer” and then “source code”. I did a word search within the document to find the word “box” and it showed there are 300 or so left.

        • Thanks, great thinking, very clever!

      • If you refresh the source code page, you can see that the boxes are selling around 4 per hour (and they sold around 80/day since Alicia N noted how many were left on May 16th), so the box is likely to sell out in around 4 days.

  3. I also got the Resort box. It was OK but I’m on the fence on this summer one. I will need to see some spoilers before I spend $100 on it.

  4. I completely caved after I saw last year’s box. This will be my first LE box, fingers crossed, I’d kill for some new shades.

  5. Ugh, The Resort Box was a $100 flop even with its high value items it didn’t offer much excitement, the 1 part of the 3-part bracelet I liked to wear- the stones eventually turned from a gold color to a worn grey, disappointing. The clutch was cute, but not my favorite. I am one of those who loved the Holiday LE boxes for Him and Her. I since canceled the monthly PSMH box after a 3-month trial run (not worth it). I did purchase this Summer box hoping for the same magic as the holiday boxes, and hoping I don’t have to do too much trading!!

  6. With some crazy filter on my computer I see a unformatted view of their website and it shows they have 730 boxes left! Thought id mention it in case people are still un sure πŸ™‚ I bought it as soon as I saw the email!

    • Oooh – that sounds like a great spy filter πŸ˜‰

    • What filter/tricks did you use?? That’s AWESOME sleuthing!

      • Its actually my work computers filter hehe so totally not sure what they have going on but I can see there are 640 boxes left now! ha πŸ™‚

  7. (another Michelle) God help me I had a weak moment last night and after seeing the “inspiration for this box pictures” before I could help myself someone took control over me and ordered it. There is a tremendous amount of turquois in the pictures and flowing hair and what looks kind of like a post card with aloha on it and mention of cocktails!

  8. LOVE POPSUGAR !!!!!
    the surprise is half the fun

  9. Sounds like there won’t be a spoiler on this box. They replied to someone on facebook that they don’t want to spill the beans.
    So now I have to decide if I’m going to take a chance on this one…

  10. I ordered it and am now very much looking forward to receiving it as well as whatever bonus thing they end up throwing into my July box to make up for any shipping mishaps that may occur as they put this one together and get it out the door.

  11. After reading your review of last years box I really want to get this one. But sadly I bought the resort one and it was horrible so im afraid to drop another $100 on a box of stuff I may/maynot use.

  12. Ahhh, I want it so bad! I am planning on subscribing soon but was a little disappointed by the May box so I am going to hold out for June. I hope I am able to order this before it sells out!

  13. Is it bad that I had to get this AND Nina?

    • This is my first month without PSMH – I decided to drop it after April because I wanted to try my SocialBliss box for another month. Even though the May box was eh-okay IMO, I had to have the Summer LE box! I’ve previously ordered the Fall and Winter LE boxes which were huge wins for me, and skipped the Neiman Marcus and Resort boxes which were both meh IMO…if the rotation continues this one will be awesome again. Long story short, I ordered it about 20 minutes after I got the email – no brainer πŸ˜‰

      • Oh and duh! I’ve had Nina since the beginning and it’s a must-have too!

        No shame πŸ˜€

        • No shame here too! I waited for a “Summer” LE box and gambled instead of buying the Resort one. Let’s hope for one awesome box!

    • Nope! I ordered both too!! The Nina box from last time looked AMAZING to me. Way better than any PSMH SE box, IMO.
      The good thing about the Nina box is that they don’t charge you until it ships.

  14. Skipping it. I loved the Holiday LE boxes (hers & his), but was let down by the Resort box.

  15. Correction, it’s my first LE box, lol.

  16. Just got it, it’s my LE. I am so excited to get it!

  17. I’m on the fence with this box and will probably wait and see if there are spoilers before I make a decision. The Nina Garcia Quarterly box will be coming in June and I have a great feeling about that one. Plus, I was extremely disappointed with the Resort box, given that $100 + value from the box came from a poorly made ‘clutch.’ I was one of the people that got mine weeks after the promised shipping date and while the Vbeaute was a nice gesture, it all left me feeling jaded.

    • Yeah I agree. the Nina Garcia box seems like a better risk for $100.

    • I agree about the Resort box. I was so disappointed by that box that I may skip this one because of it. =/

  18. I have been able to resist every popsugar limited edition box because they are a little pricey for a mystery box…however I think you are right…I NEED everything to do with summer! So I bought my first one! I’m a little freaked out I will hate it and I’m a little disappointed I have no will power but hopefully it will all be worth it when the box shows up!

  19. Thank you Heather and Krista! I think I’m going to wait and see if their issues are resolved before I jump in! I totally loved my Nina box from Quarterly and can’t wait to see what she sends in June!

    • Yeah, I’m considering spending my $100 there, since I won’t be getting this special edition like I normally do.

  20. Last summer’s box was perfection and I am crossing my fingers that it’ll be just as great. I feel like the summer box was their best one out of all the $100 special editions.

  21. Does anyone know if there is a spoiler out on this box?

  22. Just love their special boxes! Ordered as soon as I saw the email! Thanks Liz!!! You are awesome!!!

  23. I love Pop Sugar and wasn’t going to get this but I succumbed!

    • me too, I think it’s an illness πŸ™‚

  24. I bought this the second I saw the email! It will be my first Limited Edition from them! I love love love the normal subscription. Thanks for keeping us posted!

  25. I can never resist a Popsugar Special Addition box! It’s like a moth to a flame…. πŸ™‚

  26. I told myself I wasn’t going to get another special edition box, but I caved. I feel like if I don’t get this one I’m going to regret it. I hope they make up for the last box…I hope this one will be super awesome! I just hope there aren’t going to be sunglasses in it because I have the weirdest face shape…

    • I did the exact same thing. Me thinks I have a problem with subscription boxes.

  27. Oh i want this so bad but I leave for the beach before I would get this, and I just know it will have stuff i would have wanted at the beach! πŸ™ I don’t know if I should get it or not then…

  28. Lol no way will I ever buy a special edition from them ever again. The resort box was my first and last.
    The items were not worth the wait, and they told us the last day of shipping that shipping was pushed back another week, then said they shipped by the second deadline when they really didn’t, they had just made the labels so there would be a tracking number. They lied, made excuses, and offered generic responses throughout the whole ordeal. If they had just been truthful from the beginning, it would have been very different, but my experience with them was just awful.

  29. I just got one, love the special edition boxes. Thank you Liz.

  30. No way am I buying this box after all the issues with the last box

    – (super) Late shipping (violating FTC rules in fact)
    – lying to customers (saying boxes had already shipped when they had not)
    – super subpar products (many of the clutches were mis-sewn/had different colored leather on each side and the “turquoise” bracelets had their dye wear off on people’s skin)

  31. Just got one- can’t wait. They have been so terrific. Glad that the time until shipping is short.

  32. Had to have it!! I always love my Popsugar boxes and find their customer service to be exceptional.

  33. Liz, I like the idea of a 1 time purchase …. Any coupons that you know of?

    • coupons don’t work with the limited boxes
