This is a review of the standard box.
This is the letter that arrived in this month’s box. This month’s SUPER box included an Amazon Echo, sent to 6 people! Next month, they will be sending out at least four SUPER boxes containing a Parrot AR. Drone 2.0 With Live Video Streaming! How exciting! This month, there is also a 20% off coupon code for 13deals.com.
This is a separate notice about the 20% off coupon for 13deals.com.
This card was included, encouraging subscribers to share their deals on social media in exchange for freebies.
The obligatory coupon for Hello Fresh rounds out the coupon stash this month.
Philips Control Your Cables Flexible Cable Wrap – Value $14.99
This seems like the kind of item that I would never buy, but once I figure out the best use for it, I will wind up ordering seven more of them. It’s not too exciting but it will probably be extremely useful.
Vaku Disk Suction Hook System (with 6 hooks) – Value $21.99
I am SO skeptical about the power of suction, but I guess if it’s been tested by NASA… I wanted to get rid of these immediately, but my husband seems to think he may have a use for them. It probably won’t involve space flight, but we shall see.
Curl-a-Dog Spiral Hot Dog Slicer – Value $4.99
We don’t eat hot dogs at my house, so I have to ask, is this something that people who eat hot dogs are stoked about? Does it affect the hot dog eating experience significantly?
Otterbottle – Value $16.99
Do you know what I love about Canada? I love how they name everything after various mammals. I don’t know if it justifies the price tag, but this bottle is stainless steel and sustainably made (in Canada), according to the Otterbottle website. We can always use more water bottles! One of my family’s super powers is losing water bottles.
Bamboo Lumbar Pillow – Value $14.99
This got strapped right on to my office chair! Thank you, Mystery Box of Awesome. Thank you.
Spic and Span Kitchen Brush – Value $1.99
We have used these before, and they’re great. You put the dish soap in the body of the brush and then press the button when you need it to dispense more. Ah, modern conveniences…
Circleware Honey Bee Embossed Milk Bottle Set – Value $7.35
One of the bottles in this set was broken when it arrived, but it doesn’t really matter. These are super cute! I love them! They’re perfect for the kids now that they’re old enough to not constantly break glass (one of our former super powers). They came with plastic, non-disposable straws, too, as pictured.
Verdict: As always, I’m blown away by the value of this month’s Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome. The items total around $83, which is amazing for a $20 box. With this subscription, I am finding that there will always be one or two items that I don’t have much use for, but it’s well balanced by one or two items that I love plus a handful of really useful items. If you love being surprised and introduced to items you would probably never buy, then the Mystery Box of Awesome might be for you!
