  1. It feels like I have tried them all and I think that PS was the biggest disappointment. I got 3 or 4 boxes before cancelling. Rather than an exceptionally curated box, the products seemed like leftover promotional items (my daughter even said as much when she saw me wearing a scarf that had come in a PS box). One of the priciest out there and so totally not worth it. But hot damn, they know how to market.

  2. Grrrrrrr……..marketing. If their sales technique makes you frustrafter, is it worth sending them your $$$$? I don’t have this issue with FabFitFun, just sayin’.

  3. Sooooo, I signed up yesterday evening after this arrival was published. They charged my card immediately and updated my account to relect the Fall Box as my first shipment.
    Upon logging into my account today, it says I’m indeed going to receive the Summer box and allows me to proceed with customizations.

  4. OK, so with their disclaimer that if earlier sold out box becomes available, your subscription will start with that box, does this mean that they would send the Summer box and an unsized robe?

    The subscriber would have the option to opt out if they sold out of all but, say, one size of robes and it was the wrong size left, right?

    I paid for my subscription last month, and chose what I hope is a robe which will fit ( I have my doubts about the chest area closing) so I’m not asking for myself, just wondering if they’d push unsized robes on people or not.

    I don’t have a lot of experience about sized clothing items in a non- clothing sub. box.

    • That is a good question. I also wonder about people with annual subscriptions. They can’t just cancel, so they would be stuck with a robe that doesn’t fit. One the plus side, I guess, there’s still a few hundred dollars worth of other stuff in the box, and the robe can be swapped or gifted. I always feel weird gifting stuff I get in sub boxes though.

  5. Evil. They’re trying to create get people to sign up based on FOMO. It just makes me dislike PS.

    Selling out the day after you release your first spoiler? *eye roll*

    • … perhaps called marketing or an attempt to not disappoint more based on the quick sell out of the XXL size – have to wonder how so many subs keep going – the negativity must be exhausting – and yes, I am guilty of my share!! 😢😳 … but, no more!!

      • I agree Judy! Let’s these women business!

    • Do they still have the disclaimer(whatever you call it) when you sign up? The, “if ____ box becomes available, you will receive it, ” as your first box? Riiiiiiiiight. Not buying that this is actually sold out. I’ve got a million swans, PS books, etc. that say that ain’t true.

  6. PopSugar has a track record of claiming that a box is sold out, and then magically producing dozens more. Don’t worry.

    • Once they restock the robe sizes they’ll open it back up probably

  7. I had to go in and edit my robe size to get the add on I wanted. I’m really sort of in love with that shower cap and Idk why.

    • I am loving that shower cap too. It is so retro cool!

    • Me too! I can’t justify it though since I just got a shower cap for $5. I want it in a subscription box!

  8. I actually feel good about it. My subscription addiction is tamed a bit. 🙂

  9. I really wanted to subscribe, but I can’t get a box where the robe won’t fit. I hope the box is great for everyone but if the future is clothes where the sizes you need sell out or don’t have I don’t think this is my box anymore and let’s just say my house was an oasis of pink boxes.

  10. I’m okay sitting this one out. Their first boxes don’t have a great track record. Their first box ever was a total disappointment though their second was amazing. Their first mini box was the beginning of a short lived experiment. I got every single one of their boxes until I just quit last fall, so it may be burnout but I have a hard time getting excited by this revamp.

    • I thought their first target collab was amazing, and also the first neiman marcus collab. i’m still hopeful

  11. I 100% guarantee more boxes will become available lol. This is an easy way to get people buzzing about the box.

    • I am going to say I am 95% sure it won’t come back. They did not have extra Fall Special edition or Neiman Marcus ones.

      Nothing is ever 100%except death 🙂

      • Not so. After stating, rather definitively that the Fall Box was done, a few months later they offered it at a discounted price through Gilt City. Plus, all the items then appeared in mystery boxes. The same is true for a few of the monthly boxes that supposedly sold out, but then were available on Gilt City a few months later. The only thing that might make this one more complicated is the robe.

        • But the real box never returned. So I call it true. With this new format who knows about what PS will do? They mentioned special colabs.

          Nobody got the Neiman Marcus box.

          We are no longer talking monthly. We are talking quarterly. So it’s a whole new game. II am not holding out in hopes to see this box again. Maybe if it bombs totally.

          So I am going with my instincts on this one. I have FOMO and my robe size if available. I paid just as soon when these boxes became available. I think I paid in February. I am not going to buy into all this negativity.

      • And there sure weren’t any extra girls night in. Trust me….. I tried very hard to get one. Emailed to no avail ☹️

        • Which was the girls night in? I still have mine, with everything in the box except the wine glasses. I was actually super disappointed by it. I am keeping the wine glasses, but everything else can go.

          • Ann it cost about $30 to ship it, though. 🙁

  12. The PSMH website states that April 15 is the billing date for the Summer Box, so cancel before that date if you don’t want the box.

    • I was already charged for it.

      • Did you have an ongoing sub or just sign up? I think the April 15 date is for people with existing sub…

        • Ongoing, I was charged back in feb.

          • Odd. I had a monthly sub that’s rolling over to quarterly and haven’t been charged yet.

          • I paid in February as well. And I am ongoing.

        • I was monthly too and haven’t been billed as far as I know. I think when you upgrade they bill you when you upgrade.

          • I had a monthly sub too. Only rec’d one box before it changed to qtrly. I haven’t been charged yet either

  13. It’s odd that they would jump straight to being sold out with members not even billed yet. I’d think they would waitlist first. With all of the complaints I’ve seen, I doubt a lot of members will stay subbed. The bottom still says to buy the summer box, though (from mobile).

    • I was just going to say that. I have an existing subscription and will likely cancel before the billing date and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

  14. I cancelled with the robe spoiler, so there’s one more box left. 😉

  15. Just in case anyone is really upset, I have to think that some people will cancel since they aren’t charging until April 23. So there might still be a chance for some boxes to become available…unless the upcoming spoilers are awesome. And I do hope we are still getting more spoilers over the next month!!

    • Do they still have that disclaimer for new sign-ups? The “yeah yeah yeah you’ll get this box BUT if a box from the previous ____ becomes available you’ll be sent that instead” thing?

      • I’m not sure…but I suspect that’s the case…

      • Yep. The disclaimer is there!

    • The PSMH website states that April 15 is the billing date for the Summer box. You have to cancel before that date.

      • Thanks for pointing that out! I had April 22 marked on my calendar from something (to give myself an extra day). Maybe they changed it.

        • I asked PS through a Facebook DM and they told me I would be charged for the add ons on April 23rd. I guess the box will ship in May.

  16. WOW. That was fast! Is that typically the case with these boxes? This will only be the 2nd box that I’ve gotten from PopSugar so I don’t have much to compare it to. I am, however, very excited for the box to come though!

    • My guess is they’re using the FFF tactic of saying boxes sold out but then making a billion available when people panic and subscribe.

  17. I love popsugar but have learned my lesson fro purchasing before I see spoilers! Hope the summer box is awesome and hope the contents ends up in a mystery box soon!

    • I wonder if they will continue to have mystery boxes going forward, especially since the Summer box sold out?

  18. Liz, if we are already subscribed for the summer box, do we have to do anything to sign up for fall? Or do we continue to stay signed up unless we cancel?

    • Nope, you’re good! You’ll keep getting every season’s box unless you cancel.

      • Don’t forget to pick the size of your robe, you can do that now

  19. I hope the summer box is a good one! I will have to enjoy it from the sidelines.
