Reija, one of the site admins, also got that email and I believe she signed up. I attempted to sign up but got a "authorize fail" on my card despite the fact that I KNOW I have money on the card. I wonder if it's because it's a pre-paid debit card and not a "real" credit card. I won't use a real credit card for any subscription except Birchbox.

I joined but I'm still feeling a little hesitant. I ordered from beauty bar earlier this month & they sent me a USED nail polish. I called them & they did send a new bottle.  But still...

You get a magazine subscription for a year with Allure but other than that I see no difference. I think they don't have a points system. I know they have a referral one but not sure about a points one.

Birchbox's point system has really gotten me, if it comes down to BB, MyGlam and Beauty Army, I think BB would win.

I just saw this and I'm pretty excited..Im already signed up for beauty army n myglam, and I can't afford ALL of the subscriptions I want, nor could I use so much stuff...I have so much makeup that I just never have time to use! This seems worth it for the magazine and the fact u get 15 off ur $50 purchase..

Bear in mind that if you don't want the ALLURE subscription, they will refund $15, so it's kinda like getting the first box free if you do that. I figured I would give it a shot, simply because I have a wee bit more faith in it with the ALLURE branding tie-in (not the subscription, just how they are phrasing it) than I do (at this point) of My Glam actually managing to get it together.

I just subscribed to this one, too. I figured if it's even loosely affiliated with Allure it will be run better than My Glam, which I had been thinking about, but looks like an epic disaster. It says my first box ships on March 5th, so I'll take a look at that and my March Birchbox and decide which one I'll keep and which I'll get rid of.

Sort of. You have to pay the $15 for your first box which includes the subscriptions. AFTER you get the first subscription you can cancel.

From their FAQs: When will I receive my first issue of Allure magazine? Expect the first issue 6-8 weeks after you enroll in Sample Society. Allure magazine subscriptions are provided directly by Condé Nast. Please call Condé Nast customer service at 1-800-578-1825 for subscription questions. You can also manage your subscription online here.

  Can I cancel my Allure magazine subscription? You are not billed for this subscription, nor will it automatically renew. The subscription is a special bonus included with your Sample Society membership. If you do not wish to receive an Allure subscription (or you prefer to receive a refund for the value), please click here and mail your request - along with current (within 30 days) Sample Society proof of purchase (your $15 monthly membership fee) to: Condé Nast Special Programs, Sample Society, PO Box 37722, Boone, IA 50037-0722. Refund requests without completed forms or proof of purchase, or those received more than 30 days after the postmark on the refund request envelope will be forfeited.
