Batch Memphis Subscription Box Review – July 2014
Batch Memphis is a monthly subscription box that sends you local goods from Memphis (it’s primarily a food box). I subscribed to Batch Nashville for a while, and decided to try out a Batch Memphis 3-month subscription!
The packaging and presentation on every Batch box I’ve received is well-done – it would definitely work for a gift subscription.
The Subscription Box: Batch Memphis
The Cost: $24.99 a month or $55 for 3-months (I believe the monthly price will be reduced down to $19.99 soon)
The Products: Local goods (primarily food items) sourced from Memphis!
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and it gives you more background on each of the makers.
Parkway BBQ – Value $5
Crazy Good Specialty Goods Raging Pineapple Salsa – Value $6.59
I love a good salsa, and this pineapple one was delicious – but it was also super hot! A little goes a long way!
My Cup of Tea Prairie Passion Iced Tea – Value $10
My husband and I have been making our own iced tea and cold brewed coffee lately, so I’m excited to add this to the rotation – it smells wonderful!
Verdict: When I signed up for this subscription the 3-month price was $70. I used the BATCHTASTIC coupon code and my total was $63 – so I paid $21 for this box and received $21.69 worth of items. Looking at their site now, the 3-month price has been reduced to $55, and with the coupon that would bring the cost down to $16.50 a month – which I think is a much better value. I emailed Batch Memphis to see if I could get a price adjustment since it looks like I ordered right before they changed prices.
UPDATE – Batch Memphis immediately refunded me the difference in subscription costs – no issues whatsoever!
Hopefully the pricing gets straightened out, but I definitely wouldn’t have been happy with the value if I had paid the monthly $25 price for this box
Price/value issues aside, I like the variety of food included (although I was expecting at least one more item), and in general it seems like they are working with brands that use wholesome and natural ingredients.
