Perks and Features
Unlike other subscription box services, POPSUGAR Must Have doesn’t make you answer a questionnaire or survey to help them figure out your style preferences. In fact, the service does away with this kind of profiling entirely; they focus on doing the opposite. The honor of curating the monthly (and other) POPSUGAR Must Have boxes given to POPSUGAR editors, led by co-founder Lisa Sugar.
While this system can be a hit-or-miss situation when it comes to customer satisfaction, subscribers seem to love the fact that the entire package is pre-built, with the items inside pre-chosen for their convenience. No decision-making involved; just pure enjoyment up ahead. If you receive an item not to your liking, the fact that the monthly box overall is of a much higher quality than most of what POPSUGAR Must Have’s peers have to offer may be enough to even things out. Besides, these boxes can be just stored somewhere until they make a reappearance as a great instant gift: a lifesaver for occasions when we’re pressed for time and can’t shop.
Aside from POPSUGAR Must Have monthly boxes, the service also maintains a collection of high quality boxes that are either limited edition, themed or both. From seasonal holiday offerings, to activity-specific boxes (travel, fashion, etc.) and even guest-curated ones–you may be spoiled for choice.
You can purchase them for yourself, although what it’s really perfect for is effortless gift-giving. Beautifully packaged with complementary items–plus able to be delivered directly to you or the intended recipient with just a few clicks or taps–these boxes will seem like the most thoughtful presents. The only problem with this is the “limited edition” part, coupled with the tendency of these special boxes to get sold out quickly. If you are meaning to purchase one, you will not often get a chance to think it over for very long.
What You Get in Each Box
The POPSUGAR team curates and handpicks each component of the monthly boxes themselves to ensure that you get only the best and trendiest products available in the market. The POPSUGAR Must Have really does work hard to make sure they provide you with “must have” items; it is their passion. Although the focus is typically health, beauty and fashion products, there’s a lot of character in every monthly box. Sometimes a snack item will be thrown in; or a lifestyle item, such as a book or a mug. One thing’s for sure: if the POPSUGAR editors find a certain item to be highly useful and commendable, then they will include it in the package.
Overall, you will receive–in estimated value–over twice the amount you spend for the monthly subscription fee. Each POPSUGAR Must Have monthly box is guaranteed to contain over $100 worth of products.
Pricing and Rewards
A POPSUGAR Must Have subscription costs $39.95 month on month; prepayment for three months is $109.85, 6 months is $214.70. That’s with free shipping plus auto renewal. All three payment plans auto-renew to the basic month on month price after the paid for subscription period lapses. A MINI version of the POPSUGAR Must Have is also available for $15.95 month on month–a great option for those on a budget.
Perhaps to encourage subscribers to keep to the the monthly Must Have habit despite no customization control, POPSUGAR offers a referral program that’s simple and straight to the point: refer three friends, and your next POPSUGAR Must Have monthly box comes to you for free. Additionally, every successful referral after the first three will entitle you to $10 worth of credit automatically put toward the purchase of future monthly boxes.
POPSUGAR Must Have offers a FAQ page that discusses topics such as account specifics, memberships, gift collection boxes, and promotional codes. It is important to point out, though, that this section may seem a bit limited and may not contain everything you wish to know. For instance, it seems to be harder than it needs to be to figure out something as simple as payment methods offered by POPSUGAR.
For truly immediate and important issues, you can also contact their support team by leaving a message on their page; a representative will respond to your queries at the soonest possible time. They also have social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram where you can get the latest news and learn about seasonal offers.
