This is a review of the standard box.
This is the only literature that arrived in this month’s box. This month’s SUPER box included a Roomba! Next month, they will be sending out at least five SUPER boxes containing an Amazon Echo! How exciting! Subscribers can also add items on from their site for “extreme” discounts. This month, there is also a 20% off coupon code for 13deals.com.
My husband was really happy to see this in the box! He loves grilling and likes to replace his tools frequently. The value on this seems low because this was the price at 13deals.com before it sold out. I don’t know what the original retail value for this set was.
BBQ Grill Light by Yard Play – Value $19.99
This light is pretty nice, but I can’t imagine grilling in the dark! I guess it might come in handy if you underestimate the amount of time it will take for the food to cook. I guess we’ll try it out and see!
Moustache Napkins by Mara Mi – Value $2.99
The value for these napkins is based on the retail price of napkins that are similar by the same designer. These are kind of cute, but I don’t really like novelty napkins in general. We will use these, but probably not for entertaining.
Non-Soggy Cereal Bowl by Cobble Creek – Value $14.99
I couldn’t find this bowl for sale online, so the value and the link come from another product that’s almost identical. The kids love cereal, but I can’t recall anyone complaining about it being soggy! I’m not sure how useful this will be to us just yet.
Glass Work Top Protector by Typhoon – Value $16.52
I don’t really have enough counter space left to make a permanent place for this in the kitchen, but I think when the boys get new desks I could probably put this to use. I have to say, I think the joke is a bit of a stretch, though.
Iron Man 3 Foil Wall Decals – Value $12
My sons both think Iron Man is awesome, of course, but they have a younger little buddy who is obsessed with Iron Man. I think they’re going to pass these along to him.
I don’t think anyone in my family is currently using a tablet heavily these days. I think this will really come in handy when we do, though!
And as always, the obligatory coupon to Hello Fresh was included.
Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite box ever from the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome, but that’s ok. Not every box can be the best one ever. I’m glad my husband got some new grill tools, and we did get a few things we can use, for sure. The value of this month’s box was about $100, which is excellent for a $25 box! They always blow me away with their great value!
