Yogi Surprise December Box Update for Some Subscribers...

Thanks to Meg for sending this email my way. It looks like some Yogi Surprise subscribers will not receive the Mala Beads that were originally a spoiler for the November box, and then were pushed back to the December box. Instead they will receive a full-size Cardamom Rose Mate tea tin (Value $10).

FYI – this will only apply to your box if you received this email from Yogi Surprise. (I’m not sure how many subscribers received the email. I did not receive the email). Meg let me know she reached out to customer care about this issue and they responded promptly and offered her a $5 credit to her account or gave her the option to return the box.

  1. I got my YogiSurprise and though I missed out on the Mala Beads…and not to excited about the tea (but it can be a gift). The rest of the box was AMAZING. It had a product in there that I had seen on a trip earlier this year and now I get to try it. The value of the box was pretty awesome too. I am pleased. I will stick with them. I want to see where they go from here.

  2. Just got my box and I’m thrilled to say I loved it! Yay!

  3. To clarify here. This only applies to a very small percentage of our new customers for December. Everyone that was promised the beads back in November’s box is getting the beads 🙂

    • , I loved this month’s box! I have not been disappointed in any of the treats so far and thought the items in this box were well curated. I did get the beads.

  4. I received the November box in a swap and absolutely loved it! Enough so that I bought a subscription. I received an email stating I would not get the beads and am very disappointed as they really were a selling feature. Today, I went on Amazon and found lots of Mala prayer/meditation beads in all sorts of colors and bought a set for $5.99 with $.99 shipping. I just hope the tea/tin are fabulous.

  5. I am thinking that when they pushed the bracelets out that they didn’t take into account that with black Friday / cyber Monday sales that the subscriptions might go up with deals.

    It would have been better to amended the expectation (to future subscribers) to be anyone who was signed for the November box will receive the bracelet and any new subscribers will receive a different surprise.

    I am bummed not to receive the bracelet (as that was the final turning point for me to sign up) and frankly I am not much of a tea drinker. I am hoping the rest of the box is good.

    I am hoping everyone who was signed up for last month got the bracelet.

    • FYI, malas aren’t bracelets. They have 108 beads (far too long for wrapping around a wrist, even a couple of times) and are used in meditation (similar to how people use rosaries).

      Agree they didn’t handle the whole thing well, though.

      • Actually, it is pretty common for malas to have 54 beads or 36 beads or 27 beads (bracelet-sized), or some derivative of 108. Curious what these ones will be. I guess I’ll have to stay tuned because I canceled my subscription after November and I’m just generally kind of irked by this subscription so far. :/

  6. Wow, they suck. I mean, they are trying to make it right, but already they had to push product back and then ran out of product for half of their subscribers. And they only started in October!

  7. I hope that everyone who was expecting them in their November box is receiving them. I don’t know if it is growing pains with a new company working with small businesses or what. I’m still holding off with the box and waiting to see what happens over the next few months.

  8. This is not a surprise to me. After subscribing to the very 1st box and seeing all the wonderful images of products they had on their site, and finding out non of those were included in the box. Not having a way to cancel online and dealing with emails. – I kept hoping the next boxes would be better, after reading the reviews about the boxes and substituting items because they are out of stock. I would not sign up for this box again …. Unless I see the next 6 months being okay.

  9. These are not the same beads that they couldn’t get in time for the last box and promised everyone that they would have it in the next box? Yeah…. this is one I wont be going with. sorry everyone that wanted the beads.

  10. Well they’re certainly putting the Surprise in Yogi Surprise.
