Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept

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!

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 Socks

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).

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 Smart Bars

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.

Pijon Box Subscription Review & $10 Coupon Code - Sept 2014 Bean Chips

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.

What do you think of the September Pijon Box?

  1. $24 a month seems pretty steep to me for a college student! I love the concept of the box though, especially if they were to add more personal care items.

  2. It is not just college students. It happens everywhere. There is little respect for others — everywhere. Which is why I have a post office box.

  3. I’am a college student myself, and YES almost everyone stuff gets stolen, college students nowadays are out of control. That’s why I use my mom address for all my packages.

    • Thats so sad to hear about theft from other students 🙁

  4. When I was in school it came to light that a girl in my dorm who worked in the campus post office was stealing the envelopes that looked obviously like birthday cards, assuming that they usually contained cash. My friends were in her room and opened a drawer with hundreds of empty cards! She took the cash and kept the cards…weird!

  5. We had to go to the superintendent’s office to get packages. I never had anything stolen, not even electronics/computer equipment (you know, the kind that comes with a picture of what it is on the box). The superintendent checked IDs until he got to know you, but I guess most of the time, you couldn’t see the packages from in front of the counter, so it wasn’t an issue.

  6. Unfortunately, we had a pretty big problem with theft at my dorm. All the packages were held in a small room at the entrance, and any student could go into the room to pick up their packages. There was usually a student worker who had to sign packages out, but they weren’t very diligent about matching IDs with addresses. Most of the brightly colored packages would get stolen, or stores with a prominent logo on the box (Zappos was particularly popular).
