POPSUGAR Must Have Box Upgrade Feature + Black Friday Details

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


POPSUGAR Must Have has added a new Upgrade feature! This means that you can take advantage of any Black Friday deals by adding them to your existing account – no need to create a new account and get duplicate boxes.

SO! If you took advantage of our Better Than Black Friday exclusive POPSUGAR offer, you can ADD to it on Black Friday with the additional deals they will be posting! (You can still grab this deal! Full details below!)

UPDATED Clarification:
The MSABF code cannot be used with the upgrade feature. The Better Than Black Friday deal is available for new subscribers only.
However, if ou purchased a subscription using the code MSABF, you can use the upgrade feature to take advantage of future deals on top of their existing new subscription.

Here’s How Upgrade Works:

Step 1: Log in to your account, then select the subscriptions tab.

Step 2: Click the UPGRADE button above your account information

Step 3: Select the 3-month OR 6-month upgrade option to add 3 or 6 months to your existing subscription for a discounted price.*

Step 4: Click the UPGRADE NOW button.

Step 5: Add your Black Friday PROMO code, then click CONFIRM UPGRADE.

Step 6: View your confirmation with your Order Summary.

Step 7: Get happy! You not only just saved BIG, but you’re also getting even more surprises delivered straight to your door.

Here is our 3-Month POPSUGAR Must Have Exclusive Deal:


POPSUGAR Must Have is offering MSA readers an exclusive Black Friday deal!

Use coupon code MSABF at checkout for $50 off a 3-Month Must Have box subscription, plus get a Juara Tumeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask (Value $38) FREE in your December Must Have box!

Your first box with this subscription will be the December box – I think this is the perfect gift subscription length! (The total cost with this deal will be $59.95 for 3 boxes – about $19.95 a box!)

FYI – this is the BEST 3-month deal, but if you are looking for a different length subscription deal, make sure to watch for POPSUGAR’s Black Friday + Cyber Monday deals, too! We’ll be posting them as soon as they are live!

  1. It let me use the surprise code twice! So I have 15 months with the 3 months plus the two six months.

  2. So, if I had already cancelled my last 6 month sub (last month) and do not have a current sub with them, can I use my same account to get the 3 month deal? I tried it & it says that the promo code is not valid. It also does not have a upgrade feature on my account (at least I can’t find it). Can someone help me out? Should I contact popsugar? I even tried opening a new account & it won’t let me use the code.

    • The code expired -Promotion code listed above (“Codes”) are valid from Monday, November 21, 2016 at 12:01 a.m. EST until Thursday, November 24, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. EST or while supplies last.

      But there should be more Popsugar Black Friday deals. I don’t know when.

    • The promo code for the MSA
      Exclusive better than black
      Friday 3 month deal expired last night. If you had opened a new sub with it yesterday on your existing account it should’ve worked then you would’ve seen the upgrade option. That’s what I did and am now waiting for the new Black Friday promotion. IF you tried the code last night before the deadline and couldn’t get it to work then I would contact PS and tell them that you tried to checkout and code didn’t work etc…see if they can adjust something as a courteous but idk if they will. Can’t hurt to ask

      • Thank-you both for your help, Mattie & Lunalee. 🙂 I appreciate it and will shoot them a note just in case.

        • You’re welcome!😊

  3. What is the promo code for the upgrade?

  4. So if you sign up for the deal you can upgrade the deal we just signed up for?

    • Lol nvm didn’t know they doing more deals

  5. I keep getting the “popsugar is not here” message. 🙁

  6. I wonder why they won’t let us tack another 6 months onto a 3 month gift subscription. Why does it matter who the subscription is for if they’re still making the same amount of money? I bought the 3 month subscription with the code as a gift and would have loved to extend it with more months on Friday. Strange logic….

    • If you contact Customer Service they should be able to cancel your gift order so that you can resubscribe, and then take advantage of their Black Friday deal (if you wish). Good luck!

    • Agreed – this is the first time that I ordered it as a gift but as a result will be out of luck with the upgrade feature. CS will definitely not get back to me in time.

  7. Thank you PopSugar! Thank you Liz for giving us the info and explaining everything so well!

  8. This has me excited to see what is going to be unveiled on Friday. Hoping it will have something to do with the Limited Edition boxes also. Still holding out on buying the Men’s.

  9. Oh! I signed up for the 3 month deal, but entered it as a gift so it wouldn’t matter if I forgot to unsubscribe.
    Could I cancel it and begin again? I’d love to get Popsugar for more than 3 months.

    • I did a gift subscription with the code and was able to get customer service to cancel it so I could make a regular subscription. Reach out of them to try to work something out.

  10. I cancelled and resubbed and yesterday and it let me use the code. Will they cancel my order now because I am not a new subscriber?

  11. Liz, do you know whether the November box sold out? The sign up page is showing the current box is December, but of course, the fine print always says you will get a previous month if it is available. Thank you!

    • I emailed them cause I do NOT want the November box (I don’t have a dining table and never host parties in my current apartment), and they said November is sold out and new subs will start with December, including mine, which is what I was hoping!

      • Thank you Samantha!

  12. Well this is just awesome. I snagged the six month deal last year on BF and then canceled and went six months without a subscription. I was waiting for BF to get a longer sub than 3 months, but wow– just signed up with MSA code, and it’s so great we can add it on!! Yay, and thanks Liz!!

  13. Awesome! I was waiting for Black Friday details, but now that I know that I can stack the deals I went ahead and purchased the 3-month with discount. Thanks!

    • Same! So stoked! 🙂

    • Saaaame!!! So happy they did this 🙂

      • Same, really happy about this!

  14. Liz,

    Is it possible to find out if we will be able to upgrade a gift subscription? I bought the 3 month Better Than Black Friday deal as a gift subscription, and I am hoping that I will be able to upgrade that.


    • I will check and get back to you!

    • Same here. Would love to be able to upgrade a gift subscription I just purchased this morning. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will be possible.

      • I just heard back: No, it is not possible to upgrade a current gift subscription and it is not possible to purchase an upgrade as a gift.

        • Thanks for looking into it!

          • I emailed them and they gave me the opportunity to have the gift sub canceled and to resub regularly to be able to take advantage of these offers- just an FYI!

  15. My boyfriend Andy D. came through!

    • Lol he’s always the one that answers my requests too. Is he two timing us?! :p

  16. I do monthly box and tried to upgrade using the code and it is NOT working 🙁

    • I reached out to POPSUGAR and they are checking on this. I’ll have an update soon.

      • Hopefully they will fix it!

    • I just heard back from POPSUGAR. The MSABF code can only be used for a new subscription. BUT if you want to add on to it with the upcoming Black Friday deals, you can. Hope that makes sense!

      • I was able to cancel my existing subscription and resub (same email a day all) just a couple minutes later with the code. But maybe they fixed that loophole…

  17. Do they normally do a 6-month deal in May? I really wanted to do the 6-month this month and 6-month again in May, but I suppose it won’t matter if they’ll let us tack onto our existing subscription from now on – which is great!

  18. Yay!
    I have only gotten mystery boxes from Popsugar previously, but I went ahead and subscribed for the 3 month deal. I was kind of holding out to see if there was a better deal on Friday, but knowing I can upgrade helped me decide to go ahead and subscribe now.

  19. It doesn’t appear to work with gift subscriptions.

    • I’m thinking you have to wait until Black Friday for it to work with the upgrade.

      • Mo there are those below that are able to partially complete the process. I don’t even have an “upgrade” link when I go under subscriptions. The only difference is mine is a often subscription and some below referred to having a regular subscription.

        • “There are those below . . . ”

          I have no idea who MO is.

  20. Oh yay! Looking forward to the BF deal now. I also took advantage of Liz’s deal.

  21. I LOVE that Popsugar did this. It is always nice when companies take care of their existing loyal customers instead of only offering deals to new ones! THANKS!

  22. Yay! No more FOBO!

  23. I also just tried this and the promo code isn’t working.

    • I just heard back from POPSUGAR. The MSABF code can only be used for a new subscription. BUT if sign up with the MSABF code, you will be able to add on to it with the upcoming Black Friday deals. Hope that makes sense!

  24. I’m a little confused. You say 3 month OR 6 month – does that mean we can go ahead and get 6 month deal by adding the 3 month code? I’m sure this is suppose to be simple but I’m in a Black Friday haze I guess – Does this possibly also mean I can go ahead and get the 3 month today and then add another 6 months on Friday for a total of 9 months?

    • I think I figured mine out. My original sub was a “gift” and there was no option for upgrade to that so I created a new sub within my same account (I’ll get dupe December boxes) and took advantage of the current 3 month offer. Now the upgrade option appears so HOPEFULLY on Friday I can add another Black Friday deal for 6 months and have a total of 9 months 🙂

      Really hoping they let us use multiple Black Friday codes otherwise I just cut off my nose to spite my face

      These deals have me too excited! I should’ve already done my holiday grocery shopping but I’m glued to MSA instead ☺️

    • Sorry for any confusion. If you sign up for a new account with the MSABF code now, you will be able to add on to the length of that subscription with upcoming Black Friday deals. Hope that helps!

      • Yay! Thanks so much Liz!! ❤️

  25. Looks like it’s not letting you use the better than Black Friday code 🙁

  26. Liz,
    I already have an existing regular 3-month sub. I went to my profile, tried to upgrade and chose one of the options that is 3-month subscription upgrade (I’m guessing it adds 3 months more of sub to my already existing one. So it went through to the next page. But when I try to use the promo code MSABF, it will not accept. Is that promo only available for monthly subscriptions then?

  27. Wow, Liz, thanks for the upgrade feather. Now I might sign up for the 3 month deal and see what Black Friday deal might bring. I only purchased mystery box this year, but I might be ready for monthly boxes!

  28. Did it! Just signed up for your awesome 3 month sub deal, and then I will be adding the 6 month deal on Friday. So excited! Thank you, Liz!

  29. Ugh. I cancelled my subscription and then signed up again just to use the discount code yesterday lol. Oh well. Glad that they added this feature though!

    • Same goes for me. I already have an existing 3 month sub that is active though. And I wanted to add 3 more months, take advantage of that deal. But again the promo code will not go through. 🙁

  30. YES!!! It’s about time! And this makes me even happier that I grabbed the awesome 3-month deal!! 😀

  31. Hmmm.I just tried to do the three month upgrade and it is saying the promo code is not valid for this order…?

    • Don’t worry — that happened to me too. So I just cancelled my current subscription (which was only a one month subscription) and then went in to set up a new 3 month subscription. The code worked. Good luck!

      • Thanks!

    • Me too. I’m bummed.

    • I reached out to POPSUGAR and they are checking on this. I’ll have an update soon.

  32. They must have had a million requests.

  33. Yay!!

    Thanks Liz!!

  34. Yessss! Thank you Popsugar for showing you value your CURRENT subscribers and not making us come up with new accounts just to score great deals. This makes me even more excited than all the pie I’m going to eat tomorrow 😉
