Julep Maven - Subscription Changes

Julep Maven Subscription - first box free

There are some changes coming to the Julep Maven program. Here is a quick run down from what I have gathered so far.


NEW MAVENS:
  • Applies to those who sign up AFTER May 1, 2014.
  • Monthly cost rises to $24.99.
  • Welcome box is still free using FREEBOX code. Just pay $4.99 shipping.
  • Option to purchase 3-month pre-paid recurring subscription for $59.97 (makes it $19.99 per month - best value).
  • If you pre-pay, your welcome box is free, as is the shipping!
  • Ability to fully customize your monthly Maven box. Don't like a colour in the Classic With A Twist box? Swap it out for a Boho Glam colour. See here for more about Customization.
  • You can still skip twice per year.**This has changed since Nov 2014. Skip as often as you'd like**
What's Your Style
EXISTING MAVENS:
  • Nothing has to change, unless you want it to. Your Maven account will remain as is, as will the monthly cost.
  • If you want customization, you can switch your current account to a "My Maven" account. 
  • My Maven is $24.99 per month, unless you purchase a 3-month pre-paid subscription for $59.97. 
  • Once you switch to My Maven, you CANNOT switch back.
  • If you don't switch to a My Maven account, you CANNOT customize your monthly box.
  • You can still skip as much as you want (assuming you signed up prior to December 18, 2013), even if you pre-pay for 3 months.
  • Changes take effect during the June Maven window at the end of May. When you login to your account to select your June box, there will be an option to upgrade to a My Maven account or a Maven Luxe account. 

MAVEN LUXE:
  • New tier for Mavens. Available to new and existing subscribers.
  • Receive $60 worth of beauty innovations and bestsellers in every box
  • $39.99 per month or pre-pay for 3 months and make it only $34.99 per month.
  • Completely customizable. 
  • It is not clear if you can downgrade to a My Maven account after you have upgraded to Maven Luxe.

WHAT THIS MEANS:
  • If you have been thinking of trying Julep, you may wish to sign up before May 1st.
  • If you sign up after May 1st, the 3-month pre-paid option is the best value. You save $4.99 shipping on your Welcome Box, plus save $5 per month on your Monthly Maven box.
  • I'm not sure the My Maven option is worth it for existing Mavens. We will still have the ability to "add-on" additional polishes from the monthly collection for $4.99. Instead of "customizing" a box for $5 more, it makes more sense to add an additional polish to the box for the same amount.
  • If existing Mavens are interested in the benefits of customization with My Maven, the 3-month pre-paid option is your best bet as the box remains $19.99 per month (paid 3 months at a time).
  • The inability to downgrade subscriptions once you "upgrade" is a concern. Julep has yet to address this one.

  1. I don't like that you have to call them to cancel

    1. Yes companies that only offer cancel by phone is very annoying. I didn't realize Julep was one of them. I don't see why they can't have a cancel button online.

    2. That's exactly why I haven't joined!
