Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!


This was the info letter that came in the package. This month, 11 people received a Yonanas Frozen Healthy Dessert Maker in their package! Next month at least ten people will receive a BABADIO 6-Axis Gyro RC Drone with Wi-Fi Camera With Real Time Video Transmission in the mini box. That’s so cool!


This month, they also included a coupon offering freebies in exchange for sharing deals on social media.



180s LED Headband – Value $30

This is a pretty amazing little headband! It has LED lights (as seen lit in the second picture) to keep you visible in low light. It also supposedly has some kind of cooling technology. I hope it works!


Island Scentsations Exotic Tropical Air Fresheners – Value $1

I didn’t expect these to be wonderful or anything, and they’re not. They smell like imitation pineapple. I gave them to my husband because his truck smells like an auto shop, so hopefully they will help.


Cooling Towel – Value $15.99

I’ve actually received one of these before in a subscription box. It works okay, but I don’t know if it’s worth the price tag.



Proceed 2 Party Red Solo Cup Koozie – Value $6.09

I have loads of can insulators, but this solo cup insulator is a first for me.

Verdict: This month’s Mini Mystery Box of Awesome was not as thrilling as some. I think in general I like the Mini Mystery Box of Awesome less than the regular. The value of everything totals about $52, which is fantastic for a $10 box. I can’t wait to see what’s in next month’s package!

What do you think of the Mini Mystery Box of Awesome?

  1. Anna, Not sure if you knew that the Red Solo Cup Koozie is based on a hit song (country) by Toby Keith called my Red Solo Cup. It is really a funny song and video. Check out on youtube if you have time.

  2. I ordered the mini box on June 22, 2016. I have not heard anything. When do they usually send out the boxes? Thanks.

  3. I would love to thank the “Mystery Box of Awesome” folks for some of the best customer service that I have ever encountered.

    I’m a Customer Service expert by trade, and it takes true genius in hiring the people you have.

  4. You can get the cooling towels at $5 and Below. I never understood why one would pay that price tag either.

  5. “…They smell like imitation pineapple. I gave them to my husband because his truck smells like an auto shop…”

    Ha! Aaaaand that’s how I got my morning orange juice all over my keyboard!

  6. I got the exact same things and was thrilled. The most fun $10 I spend on a subscription.

  7. My June Mini Mystery Box of Awesome was completely different: I got a pork thermometer with a plastic pig that oinks when meat reaches the right temperature, a motion sensor light (perfect for my shed), and a power pack cell phone/tablet back up battery.

    • I got the same and was super happy. We needed a sensor light for our staircase when my mom is here and it’s bright, works great! Didn’t have a meat thermometer and how cute is that piggy. I had been looking into a back up battery, so this was a win for me.

    • The June box was my first box of the Mini Mystery Box. I, too, received the motion sensor light (went right into my son’s closet – just what we needed), the power bank (which has a light in it which is cool). I charged it and put it in my purse for emergencies. I also received the pig thermometer which is not my thing at all but 2/3 isn’t bad for $10.
      Glad I didn’t get the cooling towel (have two and love them) and koozies.

  8. I subscribed to the mini for a few months and had to cancel. I feel they have more cohesiveness in the larger box than they do the mini. The mini always felt like random stuff thrown together. Oftentimes I received 1 large thing I would NEVER use and then stickers or the cup Kozzies… Etc. It just wasn’t worth it. I wish they would have a spoiler for the mini as well so they could guarantee at least ONE item you would be happy with.

  9. Oh this sub is cute- kinda. For $10 it’s not bad. I just paid $12.99 for one of those cooling towels and I’ve seen them priced as high as $18.99 at Target. They do actually work!
    Everything looks kinda unisex so I might order one for my nephew (and maybe me too)!

  10. Honestly, that would be a total did for me.
