Club Silhouette April exclusive shapes {for members only}

So last month I told y'all that I signed up for Club Silhouette to take advantage of the free 30-day trial, and a free mat and blade. Click HERE to read my post if you had missed it.

Members are also given 10 exclusive shapes on the 15th of every month. In case you are curious, these are the shapes that I got today:



I think these designs are okay but honestly, they are not that spectacular or unusual. You can find a ton of such Spring-themed shapes on many sites, including LD.

I am still waiting for Silhouette to ship my free mat and blade. Since the first 30-days have passed, they have charged me $9.99 for this month. I don't see any benefits in extending my membership beyond April and so I am pretty sure that I will cancel after I had receive the items.

  1. I did the same thing after I was charged the first month. I did finally get my mat and blades but the designs pretty lame. They need to really give us something special I think for $9.99.

    1. I totally agree. The benefits of membership are inadequate; the exclusive shapes are common and even after the 10% discount, the products in the Silhouette store are still more expensive than other sites (like Amazon where I have free Prime shipping).

  2. I don't even like the idea of what they are trying to sell.
    I am a "special" customer by my monthly membership and I get to pick any I want.
    Honestly, I wouldn't even buy any of these.
    To be fair, I don't belong to the LD membership either.
    Again, I buy there all the time.
    I have tons, and will never use all "I had to have'
    But I love the designs from Silhouette and LD and will continue buying what I like when I like, and what I need "at that moment"
    Thanks Jen for letting us peek into what is out there.

  3. Thanks for investigating and sharing. It didn't look worthwhile from my perspective, but I was waiting to see what you thought after you joined. So many companies are on the band wagon of increasing income by getting subscription memberships, but they don't always provide a good value. Seems they should offering this service based on assessing their costs and not so focused on income. At a minimum, they need to realize what good shoppers can find on other sites vs providing an expensive/low value membership subscription. If we use that $10/mo fee to shop for what we want, at competitive prices, we can get so much more value and #CreativeGoodness than a subscription that can give us what we don't want.
