July PopSugar Must Have Box

The PopSugar Must Have Box is a monthly subscription box that is geared toward many aspects of your lifestyle.  It includes, food, beauty, fashion, tech, and all kinds of other treasures. The price of the box is $39.95 a month w/shipping included.  They also have 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions and each one saves you a little bit of money.

This subscription is available in the US only and ships from Gilroy, Ca.  

The good: 

Products: Full size products as promised and a nice variety of beauty, home etc.  

Booklet: The include an info booklet in each box about the products. 

Pricing structure: They have monthly, 3, 6 and yearly subscriptions.  Each one (except monthly) saves you a little bit of money.  

Referrals: The offer a generous referral program.  Refer 2 people get a month free. 5 people 3 months free and 10 people is 6 months free.  I've was super lucky and 10 people used my referral link so I got 6 months free way back when I first started subscribing.

The not so good:

The price: $40 is a little high for a monthly box but you do get some really cool stuff with a value of way more than $40

Skip a month: There is no option to skip, only cancel.

Max Referrals: They only reward you for the first 10 referrals. I think they're referral program is very generous but I would like to see something beyond 10 referrals. Maybe some type of point system or discount.

The value of this box is $110.97. When I first opened this box I was really underwhelmed. After looking through it again I thought well it's no so bad and it does have a summer theme. The hat is cute and I like that it's bendable but it feels tight around my head. Is my head really too big for this hat or does it run small or is it possible that I'm wearing it wrong? When I saw the jump rope I laughed a little because I just put a very similar jump rope in the donation pile. I tried jumping rope and I really wanted to like it since it burns a ton of calories but I disliked it very much. It was way too much bouncing and impact for me. I do absolutely love the coconut chips, I just eat those right out of the bag. The straws are cute and they say they are reusable but I have a feeling people will just assume they are disposable and throw them out. I might have to save those just for me. I also have a feeling they are not dishwasher safe. I already have salad servers but since these are durable I think I will use these when bringing salads to work, bbq's, etc.

Verdict: This months PopSugar was ok. I plan on trading the jump rope and possibly the hat on eDivv.
