  1. How do I find out why my comments are being moderated?

    • Hi Rachel,

      Please email me ([email protected]) if there is a comment you’re not seeing. Everything I see in admin is showing that your comments are auto approved and visible.

      • Maybe the app is doing it? Even though I’m logged in it makes me write the year, then tells me I have to wait awhile before I can comment again.

  2. Ordered mine, excited!!

  3. The only way they could get me to buy this is if they did a spoiler for those plates. Or a $100 bill.

    • Are those the plates from the GOOD neiman marcus box?

    • lol… i hope we get the plates too!

    • Thank you for that comment. I needed a laugh. Might not want to give them ideas on the $100 picture though Crap now I’m imagining a beach towel that looks like a hundred dollar bill

  4. Nope….you will not get me to buy this one, PS!!! I just spent way too much money on my car and bought a bike. I can resist this expensive purchase in lieu of better things. I’m still seriously disappointed from my holiday LE box.

  5. I caved…even though I was able to pass on the last Resort box (after a horrible holiday for her LE)! I saw those Slim & Sage plates in the photo and couldn’t resist! Here’s praying that we are all pleasantly surprised!

    • We got the Slim and Sage plates in the Neiman Marcus box a couple of years ago. No way they’d send them again.

      • I don’t know. Didn’t they just send out that Zingo water bottle again? I wouldn’t hate a Slim & Sage plate repeat! 🙂

        • I am hoping for those plates!

  6. I am super bummed that I still have t received the link for the pre sale. I am in meetings rest of the week and can’t sneak out to shop. Come on popsugar – send me the invite so I can buy from you!

    • Just click the link Liz provided. If you’re a subscriber it will take you to sign on.

      • I could hug you right now Geordana! I have been bummed all day I couldn’t order because I just canceled my 6 month sub. But I clicked the link and tada! It took my money!!! yayyyyy

    • I contacted ps via their Instagram and got a link ASAP. Take matters into your own hands!

  7. Got one… Hoping for the best!

  8. Doing my happy dance!!!! Bought!!!! I can’t wait to see spoilers… Or better yet, to have this in my hands. This is my end of the school year treat!!

  9. Just ordered one. I liked last year’s so hopefully this year will also be good.

  10. I couldn’t stand it any more I ordered hope it is great

  11. Well dang it, I did it. I liked my Resort box this year and questioned buying another, but summer boxes are always the best and I’m hoping for more home goods for entertaining with the pic above to go by.

  12. Got mine! So excited. I’m going to Bermuda in July so I’m grabbing all the summer boxes I can (except CFDA because it’s just too pricey— hoping they will discount it soon!!). I LOVED the resort box, and I have historically liked the items in their summer monthly boxes. I am always surprised by how negative most reviews are- I think they have some serious issues to be sure (shipping times, broken items, poor CS, etc), but I think overall it’s a GREAT company that delivers so much fun and excitement every month 🙂 That being said, I definitely understand the frustration people have been feeling lately and I hope they resolve their issues!

    • They wouldn’t reduce the cost of the CFDA. All of us who ordered and paid full price would be irate.

      • they should though. like anything you buy…nordstroms. you pay full price for a dress and it goes on sale a month + later. everything goes on sale at some point. this box should too. last year it sold out in a couple hours. this year it’s been over a month. a sale should be eminent hopefully

      • I totally agree with your sentiment- I would be pretty mad, too. But they have been putting older boxes that didn’t sell well on a discount recently. As mad as I would be about it, at least you definitely secured one, and I suppose there’s some “value” in that. It’s really no different than buying something at full price in the store and then it goes on sale later.

        • I think the recent sale was to get rid of their old branding. While the department store example could be nice, it’s not the model of PS sub boxes. I wouldn’t order another LE if they discounted this – after paying $245 (after taxes) on the “risk” of a potential box. But maybe that’s just me…

      • I paid full price for the Today box and the next day it went down by ½!

      • I would be very irate if they discounted the CFDA box, after I paid full price. I don’t care if they lower the price of the monthly boxes, but the LE boxes I have a problem with those being lowered in price.

        • Like I said, I totally understand being upset about it- absolutely valid. But it’s really no different than buying a dress which then it goes on sale. You’re buying the peace of mind that it won’t sell out. It’s always a risk. You may be right that they won’t discount it, but the decision will likely be made as a matter of business- dollars and cents (not off our opinions). I agree they should value their customers who paid full price but at the end of the day it’s just business. And if it is discounted I think it will sell in a heartbeat and that they’re aware of that.

          • Last year most of the CFDA boxes were returned and they re-sold those at the price everyone paid to begin with and also the NM Box this year took a while to sell and it was never discounted. I think PS would have a witch hunt again with this box if we’re to be discounted.

          • The NM box was discounted $50 through NM after not selling for a while.

          • in a store, if you bought a dress and it went on sale, you could get a price adjustment, or return it. Not so with the CFDA box.
            if it ever went on sale after i dropped $245 i would make the biggest stink on earth. ALSO, it would be unfair, since those who paid full price didnt even know what they’f be getting, and then those who would be getting it on sale would have full knowledge of everything they’d be receiving.

    • I think it’s totally reasonable for PSMH to discount any of their boxes that aren’t moving. There are plenty of people who will pay full price to ensure we get a box, and there are plenty of people who wait for a sale – just like shopping in real life. I’m not sure why people are so offended when a sub box is discounted – TONS of companies do it…it’s better for PSMH to move them at a lower price then to have them sitting in the warehouse and completely eat the loss. Sub box companies are allowed to be responsive to supply and demand just like any other business.

      • Simple economics- supply and demand. If there is less demand, the price should go down. On the flip side, this is why people pay a premium to get the allure thrills box (not that it was necessary this time)

      • I totally agree! I don’t know why so many people don’t see this. Oh well.

        Frankly, the whole thing is a gamble to begin with- you don’t even know what is going to be in the box!! If you’re afraid you won’t like it or that the price goes down…don’t buy it.

  13. I got the link and Im not a subscriber, havent been for about a year

  14. Ugh. I still don’t know if I should buy this or not!! Arg!!!

    • Aaaaaand I just ordered.

      I’m so weak.

      • SAMEEEEE…

        I was so determined I wasn’t going to aaaaand then I did the second I got the email telling me it was open.


        • Lol

  15. I have not received a pre-sale invitation yet I am a subscriber. Is there a link that can be posted? Thank you.

    • I haven’t either.

    • I didn’t get one either, and I went back and re entered my email in the LE updates. Why can’t they get it together?

    • I didn’t get one either and I’ve been a subscriber for years :/

      • Click the link that Liz put in her description. I signed in and was able to see it available to me.

  16. Am I happy with past LE box customer service issues (achem, NM box and Her LE), no. Did that stop me from buying, no. purchased. Yep. I love the summer boxes. And done. Definite addiction here.

  17. Well, I got one but I really hope it’s pom pom and tassel open to everything else:)

    • I agree, I am over tassels! I’ve gotten something with tassels in several different subs lately.

    • be prepared for some Blue at the very least! ha!

  18. Is the summer box the same as the resort box?

    • Nope, this is a different box!

  19. Got it! I didn’t see the sunglasses in the pictures… I probably wouldn’t want them, since I’ve switch out the glass on my others for prescription and now I’m used to being able to see! Here’s hoping there’s also no sunscreen or dry shampoo in that box!

    • What she said!! 😀

  20. I spied the blue plates in the background. Isn’t that from the first NM box a few years ago? Be nice if they send that again. I still have the red plates for match.

    • yep, those are the slim and sage plates. that was a great box!

    • yes! one of my blue ones just broke! in a lot of the pics, PS is using past items, it’s confusing! I ordered within first minute, love me some summer!

  21. I don’t like the sunglasses in the other teaser pic and I’m afraid they’re going to be one of the items in the box 🙁

    • those sunglasses are in the CFDA box – not the summer box
