November PopSugar Must Have

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.

Price: $35.78-$39.95 a month with no option to skip. 

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 $134.64 or $159.64 with the coupon from Tiny Prints. I had seen spoilers for this box but I was still in awe when I saw the cookbook. This is right up my alley. I love cookbooks like this. I love the writing, the food styling, the recipes, all of it. This book is absolutely stunning! I also liked the wallet/purse more than I thought I would. I'm not sure it's worth $50 but it's a nice purse that can be used as a crossbody. My first thought was that it would be perfect to take on cruises.  I usually take my small handheld but a small crossbody would be nice. It fits my iPhone, some cash and ID without being bulky. You can also use it in a large purse for items you don't want to get lost. The hand cream looks fancy but the description says it's a sweet musky scent and I'm not too into musky scents. I may just trade it for something I know I will like. The note cards are cute but I have lots of note cards, they might make a nice gift though coupled with a nice pen. The wine glass markers are super cool. I have little jewels on the bottom of my glasses but I can never remember which color is mine. I am assuming this works on any glass and we have a kegerator and beer glasses. At parties people are always miss placing their beer. This will solve all their (and my) problems!

Verdict: This months PopSugar had me at the cookbook. Love it!
