simply gilded subscription FAQ
What is changing about the subscription box in 2021?
Starting January 15th, the box will cost $30 monthly for all subscribers present, and future. The add on subscription will still be available for an additional $6 per month.
For Domestic / USA subscribers, shipping for all boxes will be upgraded to USPS priority mail which will be a flat rate of $9. This rate will enable us to provide more deluxe items in each box and hopefully ensure a faster delivery to you every month!
For California subscribers - we are now required to collect and remit sales tax in your state. The sales tax will be reflected in your next billing cycle (if currently subscribed) on the 17th or will be collected at checkout for new subscribers.
For International Customers - Shipping costs will remain the same and will ship USPS International First Class. For customers in the UK, a flat VAT tax will automatically be added to the price of your subscription.

4. You will be billed for your first box the date you place the order. All future boxes will be billed on the 17th of each month.
5. You may cancel your subscription up until 11:59pm CT on the 14th of the month (3 days before payment is charged) . After this point, your order will ship as scheduled and any cancellations will apply to the following month. To cancel, please email your wish to cancel along with your name on the account and most recent order number to firstname.lastname@example.org -- I kindly ask that you do not cancel via Paypal billing agreement as I am unable to reactivate your account and you will have to wait to re-enroll again if this is a mistake! (**note CA residents have the option to cancel at any time via their customer portal)
6. For all subscriptions - if you cancel after one month, you will be charged the $40 rate for standalone boxes. However, if you have gone at least 2 consecutive months without cancelling, you will be able to cancel penalty free before the 14th of the month.
**Please note - once you unsubscribe/cancel your subscription and resubscribe, the same rule applies**
7. Karats earned in shop are not applicable towards the subscription box but Karats earned from the purchase of the subscription box can be applied to other purchases in shop including Double Dip orders. Karats are non transferable.
8. Please note that for payment, Paypal balances and prepaid cards will likely not work. This is due to encrypting on store-bought cards that will not allow them to be used for transactions of a recurring nature, such as the box. Please make sure you have a valid credit card/debit card attached to your paypal account.
9. Customer is responsible for any updates in shipping address and billing information - you are able to update your shipping and billing information under your account under 'manage subscription' (This is a separate dashboard than your regular account - you must go into manage subscription to update) -- however, if you change your address AFTER the 17th of the month when orders are created OR after your initial payment and order placement, you MUST contact customer support to ensure change has been made.
10. All packages returned due to customer address entry error will be either refunded for the product price less shipping cost OR reshipped at buyer's expense.
Note -- if you are international and changing your address to domestic or vice versa, you must contact us at email@example.com to have your shipping rate adjusted.
11. If payment is not received by the 23rd of the month, your box for the month is not guaranteed and reserved. Please make sure any payment issues are resolved by this date. Please note that any major changes to Paypal including switching Paypal accounts or switching from Paypal to a credit card will require a manual update. (You may switch your default cards within Paypal at anytime - this does not require action on our part) -- If you need assistance with extending your payment window or updating payment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

By subscribing, you agree to receiving communications about these events in addition to occasional surveys that are completely optional. You my unsubscribe to any mailing list at any time by scrolling down and selecting 'unsubscribe' from our email list service.
13. When enrolling for the first time, please make sure there are no additional items besides subscription items in your cart! (box and add-on) Any orders with additional shop items may result in a prolonged shipping delay.

Any delays in shipment in excess of 3+ days will be communicated. (i.e. if processing is pushed to the next month due to product delay)
