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 a 3D Virtual Reality Headset! Next month, they will be sending out at least one SUPER box containing a Segway miniPro! 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 also included, entitling the bearer to lots of deals and freebies at different restaurants and retailers in exchange for sharing on social media.
The final piece of literature included this month was this coupon for Hello Fresh.
Golla Laptop Bag 16″ – Value $32.99 (link is to a very similar Golla bag)
Wow! Check out this awesome and stylish laptop bag! It is super padded for insurance against my klutziness. This is great! I like the design, and I love that it has pockets for everything conceivable.
Microwave Pizza Plate – Value $5.51
I guess if you microwave pizza a lot this could be useful. It’s also good for “bacon sausage meat” per the description. We try to not use the microwave much, so I’m not sure what I will do with this.
Storage Box – Value $3?
Haha! There’s no way the Mystery Box people could have known this, but clearly a box is the last thing I need. After wrangling boxes all day, I cannot even bring myself to assemble this one. Please forgive me. It’s fairly sturdy construction. I couldn’t find it for sale online, so the value is a guess.
Double Wall Acrylic Glass with Straw – Value $10 (link is to an almost identical glass from the same manufacturer)
This is a cute glass. Its listed on the Slant Collection website as a 13 oz. wine glass, but I think it’s more well-suited to frozen alcoholic treats like daiquiris!
Slushy Magic Max – Value $7.99
I tend to steer clear of products that include things like “maximum snowflake science” in their promotional material, to be honest. I honestly can’t quite figure out how it could even work, but if you’d like to learn more about Slushy Magic Max, they have a really energetic video on their website. This one is a bit of a miss for me, unfortunately.
Smart Home Nonstick Pan and Daisy Spatula – Value $15? (Sorry, I couldn’t find this for sale online anywhere! The value is a guess.)
I am dubious about the effectiveness of a spatula shaped like this, but I totally needed a new medium-size nonstick pan! Score!
Verdict: No matter what’s inside, the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome is sure to entertain! This month I received about a 50/50 split of things I will use versus things I won’t. But, as usual, the retail value of everything combined (about $74) far outstrips the $25 purchase price, so I’m happy. I’m not sure what I will do with some of these items I don’t need, but honestly, the fun of just opening the box and seeing what’s inside is almost worth the purchase price to me!
