Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code – Sept 2014
Pijon Box is a monthly subscription care-package box for college students. Each box usually includes some essential basics, plus some other fun or healthy items you might hope to find in a care package!
FYI – the boxes are customized for guys or girls, and I’m reviewing the girls box.
Also, they changed their packaging, and I noticed this message on the side of the box:
“Be Good. Don’t Steal 🙂 This Pijon Box is for the intended recipient only, and was sent with love.
If this is not your care package, please respect the property of the addressee and help them receive this package intact.”
Are college students having their subscription boxes stolen? I never had that problem when I was in school, and my brother is in college now and never had an issue. This is a little baffling to me!

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Jonathan Adler Socks – Value $14
Little Miracles Organic Energy Green Tea -Value $3
Yay for Jonathan Adler socks! This is a great print, and I just love getting new socks in subscription boxes. I gave this green try but it was a little too sweet for me. (I usually drink tea unsweetened though, so I’m guessing it’s the right amount of sweet for most people).
Detour Smart Bar – Value $1.99 Each
Stur Drink Enhancer – Value $3.99 Each
My husband really likes these Smart Bars, and we haven’t tried Stur yet, but I like that it’s all natural.
Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips in Barbecue – Value $1.49 Each
Revolution Tea Sample Pack in Southern Mint – Value $1.50
I’ve tried both of these items before thanks to subscription boxes and they’re great so these are wins.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $34. I think it’s a good value for a subscription box considering a lot of the items are food. (Food subscription boxes rarely have high values compared to the cost paid). I love the socks and we’ll eat all the snacks so I’m happy with this box. I would have liked to see a personal care item though like a lip balm or facial cleanser, etc.
