Lunch Hour Shopping: 15% Off at

Have you heard of StyleMint? If not, please allow me to fill you in! Created by fashion's most dynamic duo, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen (of The Row, Olsenboye, and Elizabeth and James), is a new membership-only, e-commerce site that offers amazing T Shirts for the wonderfully affordable price of $29.99.

Each tee is designed by MK and Ashley, and what sets these tees apart (aside from their designer pedigree and expert styling tips - Cupcakes & Cashmere blogger Emily Schuman is this month's guest stylist) is the fabric and fit. Think micro modal and super-soft pima cotton blends that feel great, wash well and wrinkle less.

If you've shopped StyleMint before, let me know in the comments. And if you haven't and would like to give them a go, use code BUDGET15 to get 15% off your first item for first-time Stylemint customers until 11.30.11.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I recall correctly, aren't you required to purchase something every month?? Or did I misread their policy??

Oh goodness, I hope Nikki's wrong. That wouldn't be fun.

As someone who used to work in internet marketing that " We won't charge you until you make your first purchase, and you can always skip a month if you want to, at no charge." line is a red this a monthly membership opt-in? It sounds like they auto-charge you $29.99 every month after your initial purchase?

It's a membership service that charges 29.99 each month but you have the opportunity to skip within the first 5 days of the month and you won't be charged. You're not required to buy anything, the 29.99 buys you a credit that can be used at anytime, and if you want to cancel your membership they have people available through live chat that can help you out.
I currently use JewelMint and I think its great to be able to get something new each month for 30 dollars and free shipping and I'm excited about StyleMint, the tees look so comfortable and stylish.

Is the credit what you use to buy the shirt or is it the $29.99 fee and then also the same amount for a shirt each month?

The 29.99 per month charge gets you one credit, which is good for one item. And like I said you can choose to skip the month and not pay the 29.99 at all if you skip within the first 5 days of the month.
