  1. I purchased the annual using the code in the special instructions box. I just got my shipping notice and it weights 3.5 pounds. Am concerned that the bag and candle are not in the box.

    Would appreciate if someone would reply with how much their box weighs and if it is a regular Winter box or the first of an annual sub with the gifts.

    Thank you.

  2. Does anyone have experience with canceling a subscription and getting a refund on the next coming box? I ordered the winter box as a Christmas gift back in September but now I don’t need it. I emailed them but want to know what my chances are. I figured with the winter box being sold out and it’s Christmas they should have no problem filling that spot.

    • No refunds on boxes.

      • They gave me a refund.

  3. I missed it by one day! Argh!!!

  4. If we already paid for an annual subscription earlier in the year, are we still eligible for the bonus gift? I always feel like I miss out on these offers.

    • Nope. Last year I signed up like a week before Black Friday and they wouldn’t give me the deal of the free candle with annual.

  5. I am a new subscriber starting with the Winter box. I was disappointed that I subscribed too early and missed the free gifts. I called Margot Elena customer service and was able to cancel my monthly sub and upgrade to the annual AND receive the free gifts. I hope this helps!

    • Awesome! Thanks for this info. I’m so glad CS is good!

    • I tried to do the same, and they wouldn’t let me cancel my subscription, even though it was just 1 week after doing it. So I ended up with an annual to get the deal and now will get a second winter box 🙁 Hopefully I can gift everything.

      • Yeah, I tried the same and all I got was a condescending response about that being a coupon “for MSA readers” (of which I am one, or I wouldn’t have seen it) and they couldn’t do anything about my existing order, which I only placed days before. I hope I love the box, because I am not impressed with their customer service.

  6. I think it’s a pretty good deal, but maybe I’m in he cast minority here. I bought an annual subscription for myself and one for my mother for Christmas gifts but I’m a little tempted to get a third one for gifts.

  7. I am in for one!! I’ve been holding out for Black Friday deals, and I am committing to treat myself for a year + the bonus gifts are nice 🙂

  8. Just great! What about current subscribers?

    • I agree…my annual subscription ends with the Winter box and I was hopeful that they’d offer a deal to extend my subscription…🙁

    • I know! I signed at the second box-and gifted a year to my friend! Frustrating!

  9. Wish we could pick the color tote we want.

    • Me too. I’ve received a makeup bag in the gmail deals and a tote in my last box that both have the girl standing there with her arms out. It’s pretty much the only design I don’t like. 🙁

  10. And I just bought a subscription last week… believing when they said there were almost out of Winter boxes.

    • I live close enough to go to the ME warehouse sale. There was a pallet ofboth summer and fall boxes at the sale for 49.99 ea.

      • Interesting. I live about an hour away and have thought about going to the warehouse sales – worth the drive?

      • I would love to have been able to get the summer box. I got the fall box and it was my favorite box of all time (all boxes ever) and I actually liked the summer box even better.

        I would love for ME to make past boxes available!

  11. If this was another offer for 30% off the annual sub, I’d have two subs right about now! Still feeling tempted though since I’ll need to renew at some point anyways….hmmm…

  12. By the way STEALS AND DEALS have 50% off some of ME items. Candles, lotion, bath stuff….

    • Got me some things for 50% off. The 2 perfumes I wanted are sold out 😕

    • I’ve never heard of STEALS AND DEALS. Do you have a link???

      Thanks in advance.

      • The ME items (only some of the Library of Flowers collection) can be found at 50% off at

    • I guess they must be all sold out of ME items as they’re no longer listed! Sad that I missed out on them!

    • whats steals and deals?

      • The ME items (only some the Library of Flowers collection) are 50% off at Hope that helps! 😊

  13. Do they charge shipping for an annual sub as well? Just removing shipping fees would be an excellent/better BF deal.

    • Yes shipping on each box regardless of subscription

  14. Love the candle! But I was hoping for a mystery box as I already have this sub

  15. Liz, I can’t get the seasonal code to work

    • You dont put the code in the “discount code” section, you leave it in the “Special instructions” box

  16. I subscribed for an annual gift sub to my sister-in-law after the fall box came, and her first box will be this coming winter one.

    Too bad, though; she likes candles, and I think she’d have loved the tote. I wish they’d just send one or the other along with her new sub when it starts.

  17. So far only popsugar looks reasonable to sign. All other offers are nothing special for me

  18. Wow. I actually got a better deal signing up last summer. :/

    My condolences to anyone who was banking on a discounted annual for this one.

    • Out of curiosity, what was that deal?

      • I can’t remember exactly what. I think it was 40% off???
        The Annual sub which runs $179.99 only cost me $126.00 (+ shipping). So that was a $53.99 discount.

      • It was 30% off.

      • Still, that’s a steal. Nice.

      • Oops. 30% discount!

      • I signed with this deal also. Much better than the deal offered today. Hopefully, when all our subscriptions end at the same time (after that deal) a new one will be offered to stop the masses from leaving.

  19. Is the Winter box sold out or still available?

  20. Oh….this is a tough decision. I would have to open a second subscription to get this offer. I really like those bags and the candle. (I don’t know why because I hardly use candles, but there it is….)

    I was really hoping for a discount to extend my subscription. I was most interested in the deal for this box out of all of them.

    I guess I am among those who are a little disappointed. Why no love for current subscribers? Don’t the companies want us to stick around?

    • I know …..this is insane that almost all the best subscriptions are for new subscribers and sadly the deals I want I am already a seasonal subscriber and hoped to upgrade. Popsugar I would end up getting 5 boxes. Causebox is for new. ME I would of upgraded in a second….the days of the deals of 2 years ago would be such a dream. Boooooo.. thanks Liz for putting this all together… your so loved….and your hubby and MSA family…

      • Oh tell me about it. I still think about that popsugar deal from 2 years ago…I think it ended up being $20 a box and you could stack subscriptions, potentially making the promotion last forever. I soooooo wish I’d added more and ended up with tons of credits for their new boxes. (Sigh…)

  21. I was hoping for a discount on the sub but I do love the tote. When I put the code in it doesn’t work.

    • Hi Valerie!

      Please be sure to put the code in the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS box. The GWP will not show up in the cart, but not to worry, with the promo code in Special Instructions you will receive your gift with purchase with your box when it ships. Thank you so much!

  22. I have a year sub and would love to but a second one but I would want it to add on to the one I have so I have It for 2 years and doesn’t overlap

    • I would sign up for an extension with this deal also.

  23. Man this has been underwhelming. But I guess that’s actually a good thing. Hahaha.

    • I agree, Cher! Before leaving for work today, I took my credit card out of the safe (hubs and I are trying desperately to get out of debt and locking them away seriously helps…), but I haven’t been tempted by a deal yet (well, momentarily tempted by PS but not enough to go for the annual upgrade). It is good for my wallet, but I was really looking forward to picking up a couple great deals today.

  24. I’m already an annual subscriber, I want both of these things! I’ve been eyeing these candles since they became available. Love this sub!

    • I know, right?! I’m tempted to just get a second sub. If none of the other offers call out to me, I might just do it.

  25. Does the candle have a separate $34 value or is that the value of the candle + the tote

    • The candle is $34 by itself.

  26. The bag is so cute but i was hoping discounts on the subscription! I hope not all of these are gonna be get a free item when you sign up I would rather have a discounted subscription

    • That’s what I was hoping for too! Or even a one time mystery box like popsugar had done in the past.

      • Me too! I love mystery boxes or one time boxes!

      • Me too! I was really hoping for discounts and/or mystery boxes! At least new subscribers are getting a bonus for signing up.

      • Yea… but this is a site for addicts and sadly at least for me I already have subs to many of these so was hoping for something I can be excited about too.

      • Same for the discounts or mystery box. I just plunked down $40 on their GMA discover the deals sale so I got my ME fix for the day.

      • What is this deal please?

      • It’s The View /Oprah’s favorite things View Your Deal. It is only for the Library of Flowers line. Sorry I kept calling it the GMA deal. I get all those shows mixed up. If you are on the ME mailing list you should have an email.

      • Cindy, Google “view your deal” and “Margot Elena”. It got me to the right page (showing discount not on the ME site).

      • Thank you girls. I found it. A little conundrum now then….. Buy a few items I know or take a chance on a second subscription. Love the items in the subscription but already have trouble getting through all of them.

        Unfortunately for me, I have more males than females on my gift list.

      • Yes I was hoping for past boxes or at least discounts. Black Friday is supposed to be the time for saving the most on annual.subs! Guess I’ll save more money for next year!
        Also – was hoping for more box selection! Though I do appreciate them telling us on these what if any the other deals the boxes will offer! I like making an informed decision!

    • Seriously! I have a million totes, what I want are discounts haha. Oh well. I’ve asked for either a Nintendo Switch or the annual Margot Elena subscription for Christmas. We’ll see what I get!

      • haha, those gifts are on opposite ends of the spectrum, but either would be good with me too!

    • Ditto. I mean, I sort of expected this for ME, but Popsugar and Cause is too? These are pretty ‘meh’ offers, the kind you might see at any time of year. I shouldn’t complain, as this just means more for me to spend on in-store shopping Friday.

    • My thoughts exactly! So far I haven’t been impressed with any of these deals.
