First Look: A PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box Sneak Peek!

PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box Sneak Peek: Clare V. Clutch

The second annual PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box was announced last week, and today we’ve got our first sneak peek at an item that will be included!

A Signature Clare V. Foldover Leather Clutch ($220 value) will be included in every box and I have to say that I am now VERY tempted to pick up this limited-edition box. I’ve become a bit obsessed with Clare V. since splurging on the Clare V. Maison Messenger Bag a couple of months ago! My bag is made of the world’s softest leather and I expect the same of this clutch!

The PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box has been curated by Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing and POPSUGAR Editor in Chief Lisa Sugar. This special box costs $250, although the price has almost been met with just the addition of this clutch! Last year’s PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box contained approximately $500 worth of luxury items.

If you’re interested in grabbing this luxury subscription box I highly recommend doing so soon. The box will ship in mid-November and a limited number of boxes are available.

Get Your First Allure Sample Society Box for $10

Allure Sample Society: First Box for $1

Here’s an awesome deal I just found buried in my inbox: You can get your first box from Allure’s Sample Society for just $10!

To take advantage of this offer enter code “5FORYOU” at checkout. This offer is valid through December 31, 2014 and is only offered to those who are not and have never been Sample Society subscribers in the past.

Note: If you only want to receive the one discounted box then you need to be sure to cancel as soon as your first box arrives otherwise you will continue to be charged $15 + tax per month for the subscription.

I used to subscribe to Sample Society way back in the day and it was always one of my favorite boxes. They included 5 great products in the box every month! The only reason I cancelled my subscription was because I was just receiving too many beauty sample boxes and I had to draw the line somewhere.

Get Your First Month of Le Tote for Free

Le Tote First Month Free

Le Tote is a personal style subscription box that costs $49 per month. For that fee you will receive a box of clothing that has been hand-picked for you and that is yours to rent for the month. One of the things that makes Le Tote awesome is that you can return the box as many times as you’d like throughout the month, which means that for $49 you could create a pretty diverse wardrobe (even if nothing is yours to keep). Shipping is free both ways.

Each box from Le Tote is valued at approximately $200 and will include 3 clothing items and 2 accessories. Services like Le Tote offer an excellent opportunity to revamp your wardrobe for less each month! Let’s say you have a monthly shopping budget of $50 per month. With a subscription to Le Tote you could be constantly wearing new clothing without going over budget. It’s kind of awesome although the downside is that you won’t own anything, which could be a bummer if you find something you really love.

A couple of weeks ago Le Tote had a promotion where you could get your first month of the service for free, and you can take advantage of that offer again today but you will have to act quick since it is only valid through the end of the day!

Some key points worth noting:


  • Offer is valid for new users only.
  • Cancel anytime.
  • All clothes must be returned within 30 days of joining.
  • First Box Free does not include unlimited totes.
  • The user will be charged when they receive their second box, unless they cancel before their second shipment.
  • After the free trial ends, the user will automatically be enrolled in our $49 /mo plan, unless the subscription is canceled.

So basically you can get ONE box for free – it cannot be returned multiple times throughout the month with this free trial – and if you do not cancel before the end of the month is up then you will be charged for a second box. If you intend to cancel be sure to do so on the same day you mail your first box back to avoid getting charged.

While it’s kind of a bummer you cannot do unlimited boxes with this trial, this is still an excellent opportunity to try out some new clothing for free! Who knows? Maybe you’ll even get an awesome Thanksgiving and/or Black Friday shopping outfit to wear in your Le Tote. :)

Here’s What I Received in My October PopSugar Must Have Box

It has been a rough month for the folks over at PopSugar Must Have. It took them forever to get their new site working and perhaps as a result of that delay, the October boxes arrived quite a bit later than usual. Well, mine didn’t really arrive any later than usual. My mail service is terrible and I never receive my box on time, so the only reason I know the boxes were late this month is because the company sent out an email apologizing for the tardiness of the box. Then last night, I received an email stating that my box had shipped even though I’d received it earlier that day. Que sera sera.

A non-working website nor a tardy box really impacted my life all that much and in fact my day was made that much better yesterday with the arrival of the box on my doorstep. The verdict for this month? Awesome.

Here’s what I received in my October PopSugar Must Have Box:

Mine Design Chalkboard Candle

Mine Design Chalkboard Candle ($24) – I guess I should admit that at this time of year I tend to go through my PopSugar Must Have Box (and other subscription boxes) with an eye toward products that will make great gifts for others (and yes, that means regifting). Thus, while I love this Chalkboard Candle I already know who I will be giving this fab candle to this holiday season! I thought it was a nice touch to add the chalk in the box. For some reason I really wasn’t expecting it to be there.

Dean & Deluca Pumpkin Spice Maltballs

Dean & Deluca Pumpkin Spice Maltballs ($5.75) – I love Dean & Deluca products and try to stop in whenever I’m in New York City, but I never would have thought to purchase pumpkin spice maltballs despite how much I love pumpkin-flavored anything. I’ve hidden the damage, but I just HAD to try a couple of these maltballs as soon as I opened the package last night and they are delicious! I’m really happy these were included in the October PopSugar Must Have Box so that I can add another pumpkin item to my list of fall must-haves. They also included a coupon for 15% off a future Dean & Deluca purchase.


Get a Box from Hamptons Lane for Less via Plum District

Hamptons Lane Subscription

Hamptons Lane is a food subscription box that has been on my “to try” list for awhile and now I might finally get around to it thanks to a fab deal at Plum District.

With this offer you can get three different Hamptons Lane boxes for $24 (each is a $47 value). The options include a Spanish Tapas Box, a Tailgating Box, and an Ice Cream Sundae Box (pictured above). Each box contains 6-7 items that will help you prepare an awesome meal (or dessert)!

One thing worth noting about this deal: Picking up one of the boxes WILL enroll you in the Hamptons Lane subscription program, so I recommend canceling as soon as you receive your discounted box otherwise you will be charged

PopSugar Launching New Neiman Marcus Must Have Box!

PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box

Fantastic news! The editors over at the PopSugar Must Have Box have just announced that they’re bringing back one of their most popular special-edition boxes, the PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box! This box has been curated by Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing and POPSUGAR Editor in Chief Lisa Sugar.

This box is not for the spendthrift as it costs $250, and absolutely no details are available about what may be included. The box will ship in mid-November.

Last year’s PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box contained about $500 worth of luxury items. I passed on that box and I’ll likely pass on this year’s box. As much as I love subscription boxes, $250 is just not a price I’m comfortable spending on an assortment of surprise items.
