1UP Box Subscription Box Review – February 2015
1Up Box is a newer geek/gamer subscription box. My husband is pretty obsessed with these boxes, so as soon as a few readers recommended this one we signed up!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process postto learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: 1UP Box
The Cost: $18.92
COUPON: Use coupon code AWESOME to save $3 off your first box!
The Products: “1Up Box is a monthly swag distributor that offers something remarkable, something creative, and something unique in which all geeks and gamers can fancy. Each month 1Up Box assemble a mystery collection of 5-8 items, all of which are kept secret until the boxes are delivered.”
Ships to: US and Canada ($29.99 a month to Canada – price includes shipping).
Delivered via: USPS
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. I like that they show all the variants subscribers may receive. This month’s theme is Apocalypse.
Super Cross Bros Tee – Value $12?
(65% Polyester, 35% Ringspun Cotton).
This tee is pre-shrunk and the fabric is very lightweight and soft. It isn’t sheer, but if you hold it up to the light you can sort of see through it (to give you a sense of fabric thickness). From what I can tell this is an exclusive mashup tee for 1UP Box subscribers, and I like that the tee material is different than what we’ve seen in most other geek subscription boxes.
Hey Listen Sticker Set – Value $1?
Nintendo Mushroom Candy Tin – Value $3
I’m not sure if they include stickers in each box (this is our first month), but it is a nice bonus. And this little mushroom holds more candy than I expected:
Walking Dead Wind Ups in Rick – Value $12
We’re big Walking Dead fans (and my husband has about 20 of the Walking Dead POP Funkos so far), so we were excited about this item. Subscribers will receive one of seven variations. I’m glad we got Rick, but I’m thinking the Walker option would be most appropriate one to match the wind-up walking motion!
Zombie Strike Global Outbreak Toy Grenade Stress Ball – Value $2?
Zombie Anti-Virus Hand Sanitizer – Value $1?
A grenade shaped stress ball is fun – I’m sure my husband will keep this on his desk. The hand sanitizer is a nice idea, but I couldn’t get it to work after trying to spritz it for 30+ times so I’m thinking I got one with a defective pump.
Verdict: Based on my estimates, this box has a value of about $31. 1UP Box guarantees a value of $40+ each month, so I’m guessing they have different values for some of the exclusive items like the shirt. I’m OK with the $31 value fo the approx $19 cost, and I am impressed with their curation and theme.
