Verbal Fancy Box Subscription Review & Coupon Code - April 2013

This review is of the second Verbal Fancy box (Check out my review of the first Verbal Fancy Box). I’m a little disappointed in this box – not sure what happened with the box curation – but this box isn’t 100% items picked by Verbal.

Verbal Fancy Box

The Box: Verbal Fancy Box

The Cost: $39 a month plus shipping

COUPON: Use code 20OFF15 to save $20 off your first Fancy box!

Oscar Wilde Quote Tote – Value $10


Alcohol Shot Gun – Value $22

I had no idea what to expect from the Verbal Fancy Box subscription, but I’m starting to think this box is more suited for me 5 years ago when I was still in college. (And of course I wouldn’t have been able to afford this box in college!)

Color Me Good Hip Hop Coloring Book – Value $15

This is the item I have an issue with. Not only is it a duplicate from my Pink subscription box (April Pink Fancy Box Review), but it even came with the Pink card explaining why she picked it for her box! To be fair, I haven’t reached out to Fancy about this yet, but I kind of was hoping they would be proactive and reach out to Verbal Fancy box subscribers and explain this issue.

Mr. and Mrs. Who? Playing Cards – Value $25

These cards are my favorite item in the box – definitely more fun than a regular deck, and great to have on hand for a game night!

Verdict: This isn’t my favorite box – but I will stick around for another box or two – curiosity always gets the better of me and my wallet! What do you think of the Verbal Fancy Box?

  1. Box really sucked. Already cancelled!

  2. Concur wholeheartedly. I want to unsubscribe so badly after this POS box, but I’m already committed to one more after their February Box delay debacle. /sigh 🙁 I’m going to join the “saw it on fancy so I’ll buy it on amazon for cheaper” club.

  3. I expressed a concern about a couple items in one of my boxes and what I got back was…..Thank you for your inquiry. We are so sorry about this! We ask that you do with it as you please and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns. Thank you for using Fancy! Sent them another email stating I would like to return or exchange the items on April 23, today is May 3, no reply.

  4. ok someone clue me in… who or what is verbal- I feel out of touch- I assumed verbal meant a box with books…

  5. WOW. Really glad I never subscribed to this box. I already didn’t care for the items in the last few boxes, but this one is really poor in my opinion. I’m also surprised you only got a $15 gift card for a duplicated item! I received a $25 gift card simply for wanting to exchange an item for the same one in a different color…

  6. I received this box too, with the same errors. Not only is there a Pink item instead of 4 Verbal ones, but the cards in the box aren’t even the ones chosen by Verbal. I reached out to Fancy with both of these issues and got a $15 gift card in return. I used it towards the purchase of a Pink box (which I received today and enjoyed) but I am very disappointed in the lack of care that went into the Verbal box.

  7. That’s crazy…the duplicate item?? Dare I say it was uncalled for? They’ve got to know people sign up for different boxes and to pay that much for each box and get a dup in it is ridiculous.
    And that alcohol shot gun thing…is stupid. As if people don’t get nutty enough while drinking let’s add a shot gun full of liquor into the mix.

    My goodness I’ve turned into my grandmother :p
