This is the letter that arrived in this month’s box. This month’s SUPER box included a Miracle-Gro AeroGarden! Next month, they will be sending out at least 25 SUPER boxes containing an Echo Dot! I hope I am one of them! 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.
SERIOUSLY! They really want us to know about the deals!
The final piece of literature included this month was this coupon for Hello Fresh.
Square Nonstick Pan – Value $17.99
I know this is just a pan, but I was so happy to see this in my box. I really needed a new square baking pan! I tend to be hard on cookware.
Jack-o-Lantern Muffin Pan – Value $4.20? (Value and link are for a similar item)
I’m sorry this picture is a little grainy! There was something about this muffin pan my camera just didn’t like. This will be fun for this weekend! I’m going to make some muffins for my family to celebrate. I especially like that they included a rubber spatula! That will be handy year-round!
Zombie Apocalypse Heat Change Mug – Value $12.99
The very best thing about this mug is that…
… it doesn’t work at all! Haha! That cracked me up so much! Yes, the last picture is the mug full of scalding hot water, and I even waited for ten minutes to see if anything would happen. No zombies.
Of course, my sons were super happy to get this battle pack in the box! What a nice surprise for them!
Perfect Slice Plastic Slicker – Value $4.99
This is one of those kitchen gadgets that serves one (and only one) purpose well, and that purpose is to slice things like cakes and casseroles of a certain diameter. I know some people would love to have this, but I have a small-ish kitchen and not enough patience for gadgets I will only use maybe twice a year. I will have to find a new home for this.
Beach Cup Holder – Value $6.95
This will be useful the next time we go to the beach. I actually love going to the beach when it’s cool outside, so it may be sooner that you might think!
Storage Container Set – Value $20?
This set is not on the 13 deals site, it has no branding or marking on it, and I couldn’t find it online, so the value here is just a guess. The containers themselves are like the semi-disposable ones you buy at the store and then try to re-use as often as you can before you inevitably lose them or they get warped or otherwise damaged. We can always use more of these! I’m actually more excited about the larger storage bin they came in! That will definitely go to good use.
Verdict: I sometimes feel like it’s worth the $25 just to see what I’m going to get every month from the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome, it’s so much fun! This month was a great mix of practical and Halloween-ish items. We will use everything except probably the slicer. The retail value of everything this month totals about $74, which is amazing for a $25 box!
