O's Circle of Friends - Special Gift

Back in October Oprah 2014 launched her new O's Circle of Friends subscription. The subscription has three levels of membership and each one offers a little something different. The basic membership is $39 the prime membership is $99 and the premier membership is $199. The prime membership has all the bell and whistles but it's also expensive. I debated on which one to sign up for but because Oprah has the magic touch when it comes to products I opted for the premier membership. I was intrigued by the "test (and keep!)" products component. The total value of the premier membership is $597.00 

I received a package in the mail yesterday from O's Circle of Friends. This came with a card that said it was a special gift for being one of the first to become a Premiere List.

The good:

Oprah: Pretty much everything associated with Oprah turns to gold. 

Price: Three different price levels. 

The not so good:

Value: So far I'm not seeing the value in the premier membership.

This is the front of the book and the inside cover saying what it's about. 

This is my first special gift item. I probably wouldn't have bought this book but it looks like it's worth reading. The value is $17.99

Here are the items I've received so far with this subscription:
One year subscription to O Magazine print & digital. Value = $16.00

(2) Gift subscription to O Magazine. Value = $16.00/ea.

Keepsake Gift Box of luxury items. Value = $122.27

Surprise Gift (Sequin Bangle). Value = $28.00

Test (and keep) product (Tips and Toes Kit from Burt's Bees). Value = $13.00

O's Little Book of Happiness. Value = $17.99

By my calculations I should be getting more items totaling $367.74 coming my way in the next 5 months if they want to honor the $597 value promised.

Verdict: I'm still not too impressed so far. I really hope more "test (and keep)" products make their way to my mailbox. 

Everyone Loves A Treasure
