I just got an email that Glossybox Canada was going to be increasing their prices from 15$ per month to 21$ per month to what they call "North America-wide pricing". The USA has been paying 21$ per month for their subscription and have been getting quite different boxes from our's. I'm thinking we will be getting the same stuff as they are from October on but I'm not sure.
People who are already subscribed Glossies will be getting October, the first month at 21$, for their regular 15$ before the price increase comes into effect.
I'm not happy about the increase. I don't think anyone can be happy with a 6$/month increase, though some are taking it better than others. I'm taking it pretty well. I'm excited to see what kind of box we get in October and I'm also taking it well because if it's not completely awesome, I will just unsubscribe and have one less box. I kind of wish they made it 21$/ 2 months. I think that paying 10.50$/month average is decent but to pay 21$ every month will start to feel heavy on the bank account and also it will become too many products someday soon!
The other thing that makes me a little bit unhappy is that as older clients, we aren't getting any sort of deal except the first month at 15$. Luxe box gave their older clients their new 26$ boxes for their old price of 12$ (so they saved 14$ on that first one) and Glymm grand-fathered their 10$ price for old subbers making them save 2$ each month over new subbers. We get a one-time 7$ break which is the very least they could have done. I really think they should have offered the new boxes for 19$ for old subbers. It's easier for us to take if it's under 20$ and it's also a reason to not unsub so we don't lose the special pricing. Oh well, their loss for making it so easy for everyone to unsub!!
