Fancy Box Review & Coupon Code – June 2013
Fancy Box is the original subscription box from Fancy.com. It launched in late 2012 and I’ve been a subscriber since the first box (check out all of my Fancy box reviews). For some reason I get the second wave of Fancy Boxes (My Instagram searches reveal other subscribers have had this box for weeks!) Fancy allows you to select which categories of products you are interested in, but lately it looks like everyone has pretty much the same box with a few variations. (If it’s helpful – I selected home and gadgets for my subscription preferences).
The Box: Fancy Box
The Cost: $39 plus shipping (my shipping cost is $7.95)
COUPON: Use coupon code FOLLOWUP10 to save 10% off your first box!
The Products: $80+ worth of stylish products selected by Coco Rocha!
Ships to: US and Canada (additional fees for Canada)
Each Fancy box comes with cards giving a little background on each product.
Lomography 110 Color Film – Value $13
Lomography Fisheye Baby 110 Camera – Value $40
This camera is pretty cute and from the shots included on the packaging, it looks like it takes beautiful photos. At the same time – and I know this is lame – I am so used to just taking pictures with my iPhone and Ollo clip (if needed) that I don’t know when I will bring myself to use it. These two items would make an awesome gift, so if I don’t use them in the next month or so, they may end up as a present!
Very Fancy Tee – Value $28
This shirt is fun, but I have so many graphic tees from Fancy that I don’t know when I would get to wearing it – this shirt has already been gifted!
Steve McQueen by William Claxton Hardcover – Value $15
This looks like a nice coffee table book – but isn’t really for me. Another item for the gift pile!
Kirkland Bamboo Paper Straws – Value $8
Who knew? My favorite item in this month’s box is straws! There paper straws make me want to makes some summer cocktails asap, and I may just end up buying the birch version of these straws too!
Verdict: The June Fancy box was not a big hit for me – I thought every item was cool, but besides the straws, I’m likely going to gift away most of this box. (Hopefully I make myself use the camera though!) I paid $30 plus $7.95 shipping for this box (I have the original subscriber rate) and I received over $100 worth of product- Fancy definitely delivered on the value they promise, but this month was just a miss for me. I’ll definitely keep subscribing though – every month can’t be the best month! What did you think of this month’s Fancy box?
