  1. I just received another Fall box!! I have two subscriptions. One for me, that I upgraded to the new premium annual and another one that is a gift for my boss. I use two different email addresses to keep them from getting confused.

    I have received a Fall box on my subscription AND she just received a Fall box on her subscription. The problem is that I was CHARGED FOR BOTH OF THEM!! What the heck! AND the kicker is that on my box I was charged the $80…so I paid extra for the exact same box I have already received.

    I have sent several email to Customer Service black hole and received no response. I LOVE Ellen and I really do love this box, but CS needs to get their act together. I cannot afford this double hit for the same thing I already paid for.

    • OK so I just got an email that says the Winter box is ready and I got the Fall box as a gift for going Premium!! OK so now this is making sense. There are big time spoilers on the email from ‘Ellen’. The box looks nice. Happy Dance!

  2. Nooo! I missed it! I’m so sad! ☹️

  3. I signed up for the Premium annual subscription last month. Yesterday I got the Fall box in the mail. It was sent as a free gift from Ellen! So now I’ll be receiving a total of 5 boxes for what I paid which comes out to a little less than just getting 5 boxes on a quarterly subscription would be! I’m so excited to see what other bonuses the Premium subscribers get. Hopefully some tickets to go see the Ellen show!

    • Jenn,

      Did your box come UPS? I’ve got something coming from Ellenshow tomorrow and wonder if it’s the same thing?

  4. Their customer service has stepped up big time! After being charged for a duplicate box (and complaining above) they refunded the charge. Glad they finally have someone on it.

  5. The code is not working

    • The code is working now and will be active through the end of today – 11/26. Thanks!

  6. Coupon code for BTBF is not working, says invalid. But the post above states that it should work today, Tuesday the 26th. And if it can still work will it be the fall box as indicated above?

    Liz, Could you please check what is going on? Thank you for all that you do, you work so hard for us.

    • Hi Amanda! The code has been reactivated and will be available until the end of the day – 11/26. 🙂

  7. I am trying to sign up for this box on Tuesday morning, and the 20NOV19 code says “Invalid Coupon Code”. Did anyone else have this issue?

    • Sorry about that! If you try again now, the code is working and will be active until the end of the day. Thanks!

  8. Wow, I just ordered yesterday with the $20 off code and my box already has a shipper! I went in and cancelled to make sure I don’t get charged for the next box. I’m crossing my fingers that my box doesn’t have any issues since I’ve seen all of the comments about the customer service.

    • Liz I can not get the code to work for this box. The post above says it is good through today Tuesday the 26th. Could you please let me know what is going on? Thank you for everything you do!

      • Ugh I’m sorry Kelly. That wasn’t supposed to be a response to your comment.
        I’d like to order the box if the BTBF code can work. Thanks

      • Hi AH! The code has been reactivated and will be available until the end of the day. Thanks!

  9. Bummer I signed up for the annual and my first box is the holiday box. I should have waited I had zero problems with customer service I emailed them and I received a response within 48 hours so I guess Im in the minority here

    • How do you know your first box is Holiday? I just subbed for an annual and can’t find anything telling me which box I’m getting. I would also buy a fall box if it turns out mine starts with the Holiday but I don’t know how to find the answer to that before the fall box deal expires!

      • I sent them an email and they responded to me that the first box would be holiday. I signed up thinking I would get the fall box since I really wanted the sound machine but I’m ok with it

      • Thanks Cindy. I wish there had been a way to get a response to this from them directly in a timely manner. I wanted the Fall box for my daughter. I wanted an annual but didn’t want to get duplicates of one box between us. I’d have ordered the fall box AND an annual if this was clearer. On the site it had a big banner saying order the fall box. Then in small print under ONLY the sold-out premium annual it said your first box will be the holiday box. Since I wasn’t getting the premium I was unsure what a regular annual would start with. Frustrating since I’d have happily bought a single and an annual but the single fall box deal was only good for one day and I couldn’t get an official answer in that time frame. The site was so confusing on the issue. Oh well.

  10. As much as I thought I wouldn’t like the fall box my 3 yo son with ASD is sleeping very well with the white noise machine and I swapped the key necklace for my fave face oil. I would love to swap for another white noise machine if anyone wants to swap theirs. Looking forward to the holiday box, but there’s no doubt they need to get their customer service together.

    • Could you tell me if the sound machine is loud, like a fan on high kind of sound? I run my fan on high all night because I can’t sleep without it, but hate the wind it causes in the winter months. I need it loud though, so I wish I could find something else that would work.

      • There are actually 10 different fan sounds (and 10 different pink noise sounds, although I’m not quite sure what makes noise pink) which, in my opinion, sound very realistic. You can also control the volume of the fan sound, and it is fairly loud when turned all the way up. I would have loved to have gotten this box on sale, but quite frankly, I’ve been sleeping so well with this little machine that I don’t mind having paid a little extra for the opportunity to start using it a few weeks ago.

      • Your comment intrigued me so I looked it up. According to the Oxford dictionary:
        pink noise is “random noise having equal energy per octave, and so having more low-frequency components than white noise”

        There seems to be a general consensus (based on a non-scientific Google search) that a mix of high and low frequency sounds in pink noise can deepen sleep and improve memory.

      • Ah – thanks for the info! Maybe I should check out some of the pink noise sounds on my machine.

      • You can make it pretty loud. We have it on low for my son. His bedroom is pretty small. I’m sure it would be loud enough for you.

      • YouTube is a cheap free white noise machine. I like the deep brown noise option. Just an fyi in case you dont want to buy the whole box

  11. I also have been trying to contact customer service. I signed up for the special annual subscription and then got sent a duplicate box and my portal says my first box on my new annual subscription has already been fulfilled. Previously I had a broken item in one box. I have tried multiple ways of contacting customer service an no one ever responds to my request other than an automated email reply right within a day after I send an email saying someone will be in touch with me. I’ve now been waiting for 7 weeks and have sent 3 emails. No phone number to call. I even reached out on social media with no reply. This has been a nightmare. There needs to be another way to contact customer service.

    • I hear if you reach out publicly on social media to Ellen then someone does get back to you. She chose to be the face of this box so she needs to hold some responsibility for profiting off it.

    • Horrible customer service… I too received a duplicate fall box and after 6 emails and 3 weeks someone got back to me and said it was my problem and I was signed up for seasonal and premium subscription… Now I am stuck for a year. I really hope the holiday box is something special. I so want to like this box

  12. Glad for those of you who are happy but i find this an easy miss. The boxes are deteriorating in value.

  13. YES!!! Thank you so much MSA! I’ve been on the fence about this sub because I liked some boxes more than others. Missing that first one was a real bummer! I wasn’t super impressed with the Winter box but….my little but loud tabletop fan I use to sleep was broken when I woke up this morning! So I took that as a sign when I saw this deal and just placed my order. I just hope it doesn’t take too long to ship!

  14. Just ordered this! I can’t wait to give the sound machine as a gift, and the rest of the box will be a bonus for me.

  15. I hope it switches to the next box! I bought the fall at full price (would have loved this discount but didn’t think it would still be here by BF!).

  16. I’ve been eyeing this box for a while, and am in the market for a sound machine, so this deal is great for me! Thanks, Liz!!

    • Yay!!!

    • The sound machine is the best, I’ve had one for 5 years, and I’ve been waiting for this box to be discounted to get one for travel. This deal makes it even cheaper than the lowest price on Amazon. I’m super happy!

  17. I got the first two boxes. For me, the appeal of the items has steadily declined. And, for me, supporting her causes (as opposed to those that appeal to me personally) has absolutely no added value.

    Sadly, this is a hard, hard pass for me. And I had such high hopes when I heard she was starting a box.

  18. Just FYI for anyone considering this subscription box.

    I had two issues with products from the fall box. One was open and used and one was damaged.

    I have been trying since the day I received the box (maybe a month?) to get someone to respond to me. Nobody has said a word. I have not been able to get a single response from customer service and I wonder if they even have a team. I feel like I’m talking into a void.

    I will never purchase from them again.

    • Thanks Tracy – thats helpful to know! I was on the fence, but this kept me from leaping.

    • I’m in the void, also, for another reason.
      Customer Service has been awful or non-existent. My last box never arrived. I sent documentation to them, and they “couldn’t find me in the system”, and just dropped me.
      I was courteous, and tried to solve the problem with them, but they did nothing.
      So, I’ll dispute the credit card charge, and warn you all here.
      Avoid this box, regardless of how kind Ellen may be. Awful customer service!
