I would just like to receive the mystery box I paid for. I received one on Christmas Eve after continously contacting them about their promises and lousy customer service. Both boxes I purchased were gifts although I had to rebuy gifts for the one I did NOT receive and am still waiting on. Their customer service is horrible and they cannot figure out apparently that I bought 2 separate mystery boxes on different days although I have given them 2 different order numbers. Now items included in the Fashion & Beauty box I am waiting for are being sold at the boutique sell at a discount. If they are having these issues with delivering on their promises and products they will not stay in business long. I am new to PSMH but will not renew the month to month sub I signed up for as a first time customer because of the fiasco I am experiencing with delivery and their customer service.

Has anyone had trouble getting signed into their account? I have even tried the forgotten password and it tells me that my email address is not on file.
My plans are to cancel my sub. Maybe they know this somehow. Lol

Does anyone know if there will be a popsugar/ target box coming out soon like the past couple years?

I think Popsugar is going out of business altogether. When companies start offering mystery boxes and super sales on merchandise it always throws up a red flag for me. I bet Popsugar will be done some time next year!

Not a fan of PopSugar personally because of some past issues with their customer service.

That said – Mystery Boxes and end of year sales are just their way of getting rid of excess inventory so that they don’t get taxed on in at the end of the year. All of the big box companies do it in some form – Birchbox does mystery boxes, GlossyBox sells past boxes at a discount, FabFitFun has the “Welcome Box” and the Ad Ons.

I’m guessing this has more to do with them not being able to find a profitable rate for the Mini’s that generated enough interest to make continuing to market them worth their time or money.

The timing of this is suspicious. Many of us gifted the mini subscription for Christmas and now this announcement. Was PS figuring we would all just upgrade to the Must Have because we would feel guilty about those we gifted the mini? We are just moving on to Sephora or Birchbox instead. Seemed like a sneaky business move.

I had a feeling this was coming – they didn’t offer any deals on them like they did for the full-sized box. The boxes weren’t as good a deal as the regular box, especially when you take into account the sales.

Ugh! I was just on there a day or two ago telling myself to order the Mini for the Smith & Cult polish. I should have just pulled the trigger 😩

Maybe they would send a goodbye gift of thanks!

I JUST subscribed to this in December. I never end up liking the full PSMH box but liked several months of this, so I decided to get it instead of the other..

Just my luck..

I noticed it was missing when I went on my account to check something today. Not surprised. A third item would have really solidified a consistent subscription from me personally. Perhaps they’ll take note and develop something good in the future.

I’m not surprised. I think this box could’ve been really great, but it just never hit the mark. The items featured always had an overinflated value and while SOMETIMES they offered three items, I think three items should have been standard (and nothing big, like a snack as they feature in their full sized box).

Will be interesting to see what they come out with in the new year.

Ha! I filled out every review for every must have mini, and each and every time I told ’em they needed to include a snack! 😉

It was always just fine, not extraordinary like their regular box.

Too bad. Always wondered about the purpose of that box. So many subs out there right now. When I first started subbing, had so many could not keep up. Would give more stuff away then I kept. Now, I’m down to one and just purchase Special Editions that spark my interest.

I agree with Trace. There are so many now. Now am down to just PS monthly, Globein and FFF. Will do PS LE and Target if they look good 🙂 I gave more away as well than I kept over the past few years. I find I use most everything from PS, FFF and Globein is so unique that I signed up again for 3 months. I wish MSA would do one again, hint, hint!!!!!

Chris Hall, are you getting the “Love” box in January? You may want to check your Globein account….and read the posts regarding the January box.

I agree, Chris! I think she also did a collaboration with Kloverbox, maybe? I still use the tote, the throw, the necklace, and am now a convert to Yes to Carrots moisturizer and Tatcha face wash. 🙂 Thanks, Liz
