What do you think of the spoilers for the Limited Edition Holiday box?

Does anyone know how I can use my 1 box+1 Holiday box voucher to get the Holiday Box and the December box, rather than November’s?
I believe they’re releasing the Holiday box on Sunday and I’m afraid that if I wait, the Holiday boxes will be all sold out by December.
Any information gratefully received.

Gilt City said the maximum redemption value is $25 for the code, so the 12 month is actually $125, making those boxes about $10.40 each. 🙁

Does anyone know if the Glossydots count on this? I mean for the free 13th box.

I’m bummed that they are not honoring the 30WELCOME code fully, but 125 a year is still a great deal so I bought it for my mom, she loves all things beauty and would try anything once. I hope they send her good boxes.

Unfortunately the WELCOME30 coupon code gives you $25 off sitewide, NOT 30% off. so the biggest savings comes out to $10.41/box through the annual subscription. Still worth it in my book but wanted to make that correction!

It worked correctly when I did used the code – came to 8.75 per box. Hope they get it fixed for you.

Hi…so I bought the 12-month sub! I’m currently a monthly subscriber so does anyone know if I need to cancel my monthly sub before I activate my voucher for the yearly sub? I tried to use my voucher but it said it would start with the November box even though I already have the November box on it’s way to me (via my monthly sub).

nevermind, I got my answer after reading through Glossybox FAQs! Yes, you do need to cancel existing monthly membership before you activate your Gilt City voucher (unless you want to receive to boxes per month and still be charged monthly).

So do I need to 1) cancel my monthly sub and then 2) wait until the December box is available and then use my Gilt voucher for yearly sub? Thanks!

If you cancel, make sure you do it within the deadline (by the 14th of the month). Otherwise, you may overlap. I made that mistake once before, but learned my lesson! 🙂

I bought the one box + holiday box deal and redeemed it right away. I already got the shipping notification, I wonder if they are shipping only the November box or both of the boxes together. If it is only the Nov box then when will they ship the holiday box? This deal is just not very clear.

I bought the voucher for the 1-year subscription through Gilt but Im hesitant to use it. Apparently if you don’t cancel after the 12 months you are automatically resubscribed – I imagine that at regular cost, but I don’t know. I’m trying to find out more before I use my voucher. I find it a bit shady not to have that clearly stated in the offer – I only found out when I went to use my voucher and it stated “Billed every twelve months” and I emailed Gilt about it. But maybe I missed it. Did any of the folks who bought the voucher see this info on the Gilt website?

Hey there Lucy,

This is a deal on our Gift plans and not our regular subscription, the subscription will not renew. Since our Gift plans are considered one-time purchases. No credit card information is needed.

Best,
Gabrielle from GLOSSYBOX

Thanks so much for posting thing. I have been on the fence about this subscription (do I REALLY need more beauty products). .. but I had a gilt credit for $30.00 ,so my 6 months only cost $69.00… So I couldn’t pass it up. Thanks again.

Totally pissed off. Glossybox ships to Canadians, but it seems the offer is not open to Canadians. I contacted Gilt City who said they’re following Glossybox’s terms, and contacted Glossybox who said they’re following Gilt City’s terms. So both sides are pointing fingers to the other claiming its not their terms, and yet I can’t take advantage of this deal. I don’t get it. If I’m willing to pay for the subscription, as well as the shipping fees, then why can’t I get in on this fantastic deal? I feel screwed over once again…

Hi!

First time i buy something from Gilt website. I bought 1 year subscription on tuesday night and didin’t received any confirmation…. Is it normal? Can you see this order in your profile? I can’t. I sent them an email yesterday night and didn’t get any answer. Wondering if I should try to order it again.

Any advise would be appreciated!! Thanks! 🙂

I got a confirmation email from Glossybox right away, the voucher a little later. Something’s wrong with yours. Was your card charged? Check your spam folder maybe?

The one box + limited edition box are sold out 🙁 Then I was thinking I’d buy a longer subscription but remembered that the limited edition box wasn’t included. I’m so torn because I am only “meh” on this subscription (even at $11-something or $8-something a box) and want to be sure that I don’t overdo it before any Black Friday deals come out! Unfortunately for us the holidays suck as far as income, so I can’t just buy all the things.

I don’t know if you can earn Glossydots on with this voucher. If you can, with the annual subscription you will be able to earn enough Glossydots to get a free box. So it is really 13 boxes for $105 or about $8.07 a box.

I’ve been so good at resisting this… I was happy to see it was sold out. But now the year is back in stock… I don’t really NEED it, but for $8.75/month I don’t know how I can pass it up. If anything, I think the boxes themselves are really cute!

So I’m confused… The Glossy Box sale on Gilt City ends on Nov. 12th, but you have to redeem your first Glossy Box by February 2nd. Does this mean you won’t get charged until you redeem it? Or do you get charged upon purchase and then won’t receive your Glossy Box until you initiate it?

You get charged when you buy it from Gilt City. They send you a voucher with a code, and you click on the link in the e-mail, which takes you to the GB where you redeem the voucher code. It will say “no payment necessary,” so you don’t give GB your card info. According to the above message from a GB rep, the subscription won’t automatically renew because they don’t have your card info (they treat it as if someone bought you a gift subscription, I guess).

Anyway, I hope that makes sense. I hemmed and hawed but finally decided to just buy the year.

Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to create a question, so I had to reply to your comment LOL

I just bought the 6 month subscription from Gilt City for $69. What a great deal.

I just want to know how Gilt City Subscriptions work. Will I get it from Gilt City or will it be shipped from GlossyBox? Will it be 6 months starting now? Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr? Or will it be past boxes or a combo of both?
Can I go login to GlossyBox with my Gilt City password or will Gilt City send me an email to GlossyBox later?

My understanding is that this works a lot like Groupon. You purchase a voucher which will be emailed to you and you will visit the Glossybox website before Feb 2, 2016 and redeem the voucher there. That would mean that the Boxes should come from GlossyBox.

Regret is a horrible feeling and must be avoided at all costs. Especially if that cost is slashed by more than 50% …

I’m super upset with Glossybox. I tried to purchase this holiday LE box like 2 weeks ago with my coupon after I received my October box, and it was sold out. So how is it on sale here now? Emailed customer service and waiting to hear back. At this point, I’m about ready to cancel. Seems like non-subscribers get the best deals anyway.

I talked to the customer service people the other day. They are making more holiday boxes to go back on sale soon i think, so we will be notified by email when they go back on sale and we can still use our discount code that we got in the October Box (phew!) … so you should be okay as long as you purchase the box as soon as you receive the email, because they sell pretty fast

So I tried to get the year sub and it was sold out. I purchased the 6-month instead and of course, I got an e-mail right after saying the year is now available! What the heck?!?! I’m so bummed I missed out on the year.

If you haven’t already used the voucher on the glossy of website, you can call gilt city and they will transfer what you paid for the 6 month to the 1 year subscription. I bought the 6 month by accident and called and they had no problem canceling it so I can buy the year.

Only problem with that ( i just talked with them myself) is that if you use the code you cant use it again. So no 30% off.

I just bought the year sub, so they must have added more. Can’t beat that price, even though I cancelled last month. But its definitely worth $8.75/month!

The year sub is back up. I bought it at 8:30 AM central time. I am weak, but $8.75 is what I would pay for the 1 item I use out of every glossybox per month, so everything else will be thought of as extra.

Yep. I just tried and only the 6-month sub is left. Hopefully it’s still available when I get my voucher.

If you start by the expiration date in February you can. If your old sub ends after that you should open a second account and change your preferences to reduce the chance of duplicates during the overlap.
