Bullymake Box Subscription Review + Coupon – December 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Bullymake Box is a monthly subscription box for power chewers. You all have heard about (and seen) some of Nyx’s exploits with plush toys from dog subscription boxes so when I heard about this one, I had to sign up immediately. Nyx is definitely a power chewer! You pick your dog’s weight in 10-pound increments so this is a box for an 80-pound dog (Nyx weighs about 84 right now; she has changed weight in the past few months due to medication issues).

My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Toys-only, 80-pound, $39 a month, box.

Not all boxes are the same due to the fact that you can choose your dog’s size in 10 pound increments, choose a toys-only box, etc., but there is usually an information card highlighting an item or two from the box.

Bullymake Treat Snacker Dog Toy – Listed Value $18

This is the second month we’ve received a Bullymake-branded item. Although they do have a shop now, this item is not yet showing up in it, so I took the value from the information card. I put some of Nyx’s wet food on the inside of this and she had fun licking it out.

Chuckit! Ultra Ball (large) – Value $4.12

Nyx likes ball toys and this one is useful even without the Chuckit! launcher. This is about the size of a tennis ball but is a pretty durable rubber.

Jolly Pets Jolly Tuff Treader (L/XL) – Value $13.61

Nyx loves tug toys. Or rather, she loves to play tug with toys, even if they are not really big enough for that. That is what she wants to do with this toy. She has some other Jolly Pets toys that have held up for a few months, so I expect this one to last awhile.

Petsport Triple Tex Three Knot Rope – Value $5.79?

Mammoth Flossy Chews Tug with Three Knots (medium) – Value $2.99

We got the Petsport Triple Tex rope last month, too. But I don’t even mind getting it again, or getting two ropes. To Nyx, they are all NEW TOYS. And, she loves ropes (but they don’t last so long with her, which is why it’s good to get two).

Note: I can’t find the Triple Tex rope in stock and for sale anywhere online but this wholesale site gives a suggested retail value.

I put some of Nyx’s wet food inside this toy so she was very excited. It is also sturdy enough that I feel safe leaving it with her when I am not around.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $44.51 for the December 2016 Bullymake Box. That is somewhat higher than the month-to-month cost of the box (this box is always higher in value!). The value is probably a little higher, honestly, since some of the prices quoted above are Chewy.com sale prices. Plus, the toys are all durable, which is great when you have a destructive dog like Nyx. I am pleased to see the introduction of Bullymake-branded items because from what I’ve seen so far, the designers of those toys really understand toy destroyers.

What do you think of the December 2016 Bullymake Box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. I am very disappointed with Bullymake. I was excited to see this subscription service was now available in Australia. So I ordered a box in early December for Christmas. I finally recieved it today. Early February 2017. Two months later. While the staff were very communicative and apologetic and did follow through on my problems I think a 2 month wait is ridiculous. 1st the shipping department sent it within the US. My town name is the only one in the world. It bounced all over the States. Bullymake said they will resend it when it is returned by mail. Still nothing. Then they said they would reissue a box and gave me a tracking number. 2 weeks later I check it as a package from the US takes under 2 weeks to arrive in Australia. Turns out it was sitting at the postal service waiting for a label. I ask for a refund. They say no as it is on its way but will refund $10. Two weeks later it arrives. 2 toys. 4 treats. Value approx $45. I paid $49 inc shipping. So basically I saved $6 and only because I was give $10 back. So if I received it on time I would have lost $4. So probably not a good deal for Australians. Sorry guys even though your customer service was good your dispatch team let you down and the cost isn’t really a saving. Plus my dog doesn’t even like the toys. So it’s a big thumbs down from me.

  2. BUYER BEWARE! I made the mistake of subscribing to Bullymake on 26 October 2016, for 3 months. I received my first box within 5 days or my order. It had TWO toys in it! The rest of the box was treats. I cancelled my subscription to prevent another charge. I never received my other two boxes. When I emailed on 7 December 2016 to enquire about my remaining boxes, I got the following reply:

    Thanks for reaching out! We ship within 30 days interval, however if the expected shipment date falls on a weekend or holiday, the ship date gets moved to the next business day.

    Anyhow, I see here that your next box is currently in the pick and pack process as confirmed by the warehouse. This will be going out the door shortly.

    You will receive e-mail notification when shipped. We thank you greatly for your patience!

    Nice email, still no boxes. Very disappointed!

    • You have to choose the “no treats” option at sign-up or you will get a box with mixed toys and treats. If you did choose “no treats” and you received treats, you should let them know immediately; this has happened with me before and they fixed it right away.

      If you signed up at the end of October, you probably got the November box as your first box. January hasn’t arrived yet for me but you should have received a December box, too. If you contacted them on December 7, I don’t think they would’ve shipped December yet at that time. I would definitely let them know if you haven’t received it, although if you live in a part of the country where there has been severe weather, between that and the holidays, it might’ve been a bit late.

      i have really never had any issues with Bullymake Box customer service, though. They are one of the most responsive boxes out there. If you contact them through the online chat service on their website, they get back to you pretty quickly. (If they are not online, just fill out the form to leave a message.)

      • I sent another email today and received a response. I have been refunded the outstanding balance for my two missing boxes. I am satisfied with this resolution but won’t be reordering from this company. I have a subscription through another company that I will be continuing instead.

  3. I ADORE Nyx’s excited faces in every photo you ever post of her.
