  1. I really preferred this at a monthly sub. It’s more affordable for me. I can’t pay out $75 at a time. I can afford $25 a month though. Seems like they’re having issues with the quarterly model. Maybe they’ll go back to the monthly box.

    • agree + really hope so too!! miss it so much as do my kids, we really looked forward to it every month – wonder if they were looking at comps like FFF + RZBOS and followed suit as both of those are quarterly

      RZ sold RZBOS to another company but she still remains involved (apparently, but who knows) RZBOS actually sent me a code for $50 off a few weeks back so $49.99 for box (code is REJOIN50) and I still didn’t bother as it seems blah and I was an annual sub first year and love RZ – their customer service is horrendous, had issues – i’d expect BOS to go lower at this point as doesn’t seem like many are buying, bet it ends up on gilt for with gilt credit or even free on black friday with winter box purchase perhaps?!?

      regardless, loved monthly PSMH so much, really hope it comes back and great price as you said…

      never tried FFF yet and have no other subs than PSMH, just canceled when they issued $20 off coupon as why pay more….will prob get PSMH winter if coupon and box is good….

      hope they read here! have a great w/e! 💕

  2. If anyone is interested in the cuff, lipstick, tray, phone pocket & hum for box split prices below + shipping costs please email me phatpatti82atgmaildotcom because I am trying to decide if I want to buy this box since I don’t even want half of the items….

    Scarf: $12.69
    Cuff: $15.23
    Tarte: $6.77
    Lipstick Queen: $4.23
    Tray: $9.82
    Umbra: $2.03
    Phone pocket: $2.54
    HUM: $1.69

    • I’ll take the Tarte and lipstick queen!

      • Hey Riley, thanks but someone emailed me yesterday and we split it. Thanks though!

  3. Just broke the bank and ordered this bc I absolutely love everything in it! Was bummed they were out of the rose gold bracelet though but I’m super excited! Just got new living room furniture and rug and that dish goes perfectly!

  4. Wait so if we already subscribe we do not get the highlighter, right? The directions are confusing. It says you can mail in for one but it is first come first served so I feel like by the time the mail gets there they would be out of stock lol.

  5. I don’t know what I’m missing. I love this box and I’m tempted to order another!

    • I haven’t even opened mine yet! had a crazy month or so and wanted to enjoy opening as my only sub and it’s the only thing I have bought in months too! also, i’m in FL, so i’m aware scarf will be used as more of a blanket if even possible!! good for traveling too, not that i’m going anywhere soon! lol

  6. I feel like it was really a mistake for them to switch to quarterly. The efforts they are putting forth to move this box are evidence of that. Also while these items are nice, they are unoriginal. I miss their old curation 🙁

    • so do I! does PSMH read comments on here, I know so others do! I just posted above but perhaps they compared PSMH to comps like FFF + RZBOS and thought it would generate more profits – all I want from santa is my monthly PSMH back!

  7. Well if they don’t sell, they can always pawn them off on IPSY for next months Glam Bag Plus.🙄

  8. The coupon code doesn’t work :S

    • Hi Sofia,

      I just tested the coupon and it’s working for me. One thing to keep in mind – this coupon code only works for new accounts, so if you’ve previously subscribed to POPSUGAR, that could be why it didn’t work for you. Hope that helps!

  9. Now I am tempted. The freebies that already come with the box, $20 off, and now a free highlighter. Hmm.. Unfortunately of the box the only two things that interest me is the Tarte item and the Hum item. Everything else I could take it or leave it. Oh the decisions.

    • I know, I’m so tempted because I really want the scarf and the tarte masks interest me but I’m not paying $55 for a scarf, so hopefully I will be able to swap for it at some point. Decisions decisions….

      • Hi Shelli! I was thinking of ordering this box, but I don’t really care for the scarf since I live in Florida and it doesn’t get very cold here. If you’d like to buy it for like, I dunno, $20 plus shipping, feel free to e-mail me! beccajrichardson (at) gmail (dot) com 🙂

  10. Brilliant box for me. Already ordered. I’ll use almost everything and what I wont use – I’ll present

  11. Nope, too expensive.

  12. Nope, still an easy pass.

  13. Confused about how to claim this if I already ordered a Fall Must Have Box. has no clear place where I can order this item.

    • If you ordered the fall box already and want to use the coupon you’ll need to use a different email address.

    • I emailed them because I just signed up for subscription a few days ago so I was pretty ticked off when I received email offering the highlighter with subscription. I also tried going on the website to claim it and it wasn’t possible and informed them of that. They very quickly responded with separate link that explained that the only way we could claim it as existing customers is to send in letter requesting it. Just send in an envelope and with your name and shipping address on it to the (very long) address listed above on this post (in same section mentioning link). I did this just in time as my mail lady showed up as I was addressing the envelope. It is on a first come first serve basis and they only have so many so there is no guarantee we will get it but it’s worth a try. Letters have to be post marked by the 4th and must be received by the 7th to qualify.

      • Yeah, I subbed about a week ago using code MSA20, so when I saw the highlighter offer I just thought ‘lame!’ They must be really hard up to move these boxes. It annoys me I have to send them a letter. Eh.

      • Don’t even bother with a writing anything but your address and theirs on the envelope. That’s all the lady who emailed told me to do. Took like 15 seconds. Yeah it’s bs but at least it is quick and easy.

  14. I went back and looked over the reviews, tallied up what I would spend for the items that interested me, and it still comes under the $55 price tag with the current discount. It’s a no for me. I even redid it thinking about gifts, still came under $55 in value for me, personally. Almost went for it until I revisited the reviews.

    • I do that too. I love this box and it was so worth the $55 for me, but it’s smart to skip the boxes that don’t have the value for you.

    • Yep by doing that this box is a no go.
      And the thing I was most excited for cuff and tray, have been absolute busts.

  15. For me this is a great deal. I saw the price per item breakdown on box review, so that along with the highlighter is an even better value. I’m looking forward to getting this box. I’ve missed Popsugar.

  16. No reason to buy this sub ahead of time if it’s gonna go on sale each season!

    • I know! you never know with PSMH esp b/c they switched to quarterly – have enough highlight to light up the empire state building so I don’t need another one but $20 would have been cool – also, when they say 500 left, I do believe it’s low stock – although, they will somehow find more boxes often months later for sales at times, at least has happened before when it was monthly! xx

  17. another highlighter or black eyeliner DEFINITELY not going to convince me to sign up

    • This is special Popsugar highlighter lol.

      • Lmao! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    • I imagine they had to pick something people who bought the box already wouldn’t be upset missing out on. I have been on the fence about the box and although I do think that highlighter is cute, I want/need exactly zero more highlighters in my life so still passing.

    • Because nobody has highlighter, right?
