Full Details: Squix QBox is a monthly subscription. All future QBoxes are customizable. You can pause or cancel anytime online.
Good to know: Squix offers a customizable box. Each month they highlight one featured product, and subscribers can pick their other two products. Here is what you’ll see when you check out:
Milstein’s Pure Floor Cleaner & Disinfectant Concentrate – Value $5.99
I was familiar with several of the brands offered by Squix, but this one was new to me, so I wanted to try it! This is made with tea tree oil, distilled vinegar and borax. The scent works for me, and I like that you can use it in the concentrated form or diluted for general floor cleaning.
Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes – Value $3.99
This is the featured item of the month. You get to pick out two items of your choice, and then Squix picks one (it varies every month). Here is what I saw when I checked out:
(I switched both of the optional items.)
These wipes are a staple at our house – always good for counter tops, remotes, x-box controllers, anything else with germs!
Wireless Wipes – Value $4.49
This was my second item selection for the month. It’s one of the items I always need but don’t always remember to buy, so I’m happy I noticed these when putting together my QBox.
These work well to clean AND they also removed streaks and smudges!
Jo-Sha Lavender Wipe – Value $1
And every Squix QBox comes with a bonus extra! These wipes smell so good! They are designed to be used for yoga mats, but I use them for just about everything!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $16. That’s lower than the $20 a month cost, but one thing to mention is that I ordered before they added the $5 QCash Card with all boxes, so that should bring the value up to just above the cost of the box (if you plan on using it).
While I wish the value was higher, to be fair, I should also call out then when picking out my two products for the box, I wasn’t looking at prices and trying to maximize my value. If you do that, your value will be a little higher.
Considering there are no surprises – you can make sure you’ll use every item included and you pick the most expensive products, this could be a good value for some – especially if you want to try out new brands. (I noticed quite a few green cleaning brands I want to try.)
And of course, it is a great deal with the current $7.99 offer. (And Squix allows you to skip/pause any month you aren’t interested in.)
What do you think of Squix? I feel like this could also be a great subscription to gift for college students. (But maybe that’s just because I took a class called Common Human Diseases in college and have been slightly freaked out about germs/bacteria ever since!)
