Update on Superstar status: It is really not all that great. Yes you get 70-items dreambox, black background color scheme (blah), occasional overpriced private room . The personal discount code does not work all the time they turn it on a few times a year usually a few weeks earlier than the regular discount . I confess , the special status has been really mostly a marketing bs to entice me to spend more and at higher price.
Thanks for more info. I guess you get a chance to preview before anyone else. And if you really like an item you can simply buy it. Most yoox items are just 1 piece. So it may benefit some shopaholics !!!
agreed with MedWed, i rarely purchase an item from the private room because items are definitely more upscale and out of my range. i have noticed occasionally when an item does become mass-available, they raise the price even more, ridiculous! the superstar discounts are no more than 15% off, and it only happened like 2-3 times this past year, not a biggie unless you just have to snatch something off your dream box. they could do more, much more.
ahh. the joys of yoox.
How does one get superstar status?
Spend a lot of money. How long you've been a customer for also plays a role.
I've been a customer for over 3 years and I spend a ton with them...do you have to be invited or do you ask them for some sort of application that is then reviewed?
I have been customer for last 6 months and spent over $2k in last 6 months(7 orders). I did receive one time special discount code from them. But no invitation to the superstar program.
You get SS automatically. No application is involved. One day I received in the mail a useless leather luggage tag with "Superstar" written on it (it promptly went into garbage). Then I've noticed that one of my Yoox accounts got all black and message on the top stated "Superstar". The account they picked was not the oldest I have. I heard that Purchases to Returns ratio is the main factor for them to award the special status, but beyond that I have no idea what is the deciding factor. Do not sweat it , I hardly used my personal code to buy anything.
Any new yoox codes?
i got invited the 3rd year, hadn't make that much purchase then, maybe 1K max, but didn't not make a whole lot of returns. I think the rules have probably changed over time. They will notify you when your SS account is activated.
I don't think that really counts as a lot to them over six months.
I had SS status a few years ago and it sounds like nothing has changed. Status is revoked after a while.
Some observations about being a Superstar are valid, but I still enjoy the private room items, early previews, continued discounts I get with my private number as well as occasional freebies (leather wallet, suit bag I just received as a New Year's gift) even though I pass them all along to my buddies. Yoox, in my opinion, remains the best online men's clothing store for high end things at reasonable prices.
got a suit bag, a black plastic card in cc size, and a "private code".
and there is no such thing as free delivery, even for shopping carts worth >400€.
asked the support about this by their webmail form, cause i couldn't find any email adress.
its a thin line between superstar and superdork.
