  1. I just got charged AGAIN after trying to cancel this box FOUR TIMES. Im going to have to file a dispute with my credit card company. Im unable to login on the website, it says my email doesnt exist in their system….HOW DID I SIGN UP THEN?

    • Call you CC company ASAP. You can have them block this account. I had to do this via PayPal with Spotify when my account suddenly didn’t recognize my log in information. There was absolutely NOWHERE on their page (at the time-don’t know about now) with CS/contact information, nor anywhere to cancel my account. Ridiculous, but 100% true. I called PayPal and told them what was happening and they handled it. No more Spotify stealing my money.

  2. Disappointingly, this feels like Ellen “Merch”. Thankfully it’s for charity, so I hope they sell a ton. I do like Ellen and her accomplishments and also feel like she packs a lot of value into her subscription boxes, as well as unique opportunity with great items at a discount. I was excited for her Summer box since her last one blew me away. However, I will skip this one. Mainly because I do not need someone’s name/branding plastered all over my house. It takes the tastefulness away from the products, in my opinion.

  3. I love it, and cannot wait to receive my first BeKind box!

    Coral is such a great summer color. I wish I had 2 … Do they sell things separately, if we wish to buy another item from our box?

    So many fun things – I am filled with anticipation!!

    Thanks, Ellen! ❤️

    Now, if my primary vehicle (which turns 31 years old on June 18) makes it to the beach, it’d be a miracle. I may be using the contents of this box poolside, initially. That’s allowed, right?!! ☺️

    • Hello, Did anyone receive the Summer Box?? They were suppose to charge my card on the 18th, but nothing. They aren’t responding to my Emails

  4. I love it. I may not end up using every item but I love the idea that the items are coming from the Be Kind collection and the profits are being put toward the COVID 19 response. By using her own brand for many of the items, the marketing team can give more proceeds to the charity. I love the Be Kind theme and try to live by it. I don’t choose to listen to any gossip about whether or not Ellen is a kind person. If I ever have the opportunity to meet her in person that is time enough for me to decide. In the mean time, she is a person putting positive out into the world and that is all anyone can ask for. I don’t care who puts the sentiment forward, all the positive energy we can put out right now is what we need. I have many of the items but I will gladly pass them on to someone who needs them and use the ones that remind me how I want to be- KIND! I hope that some of the folks posting can reflect on that, for just a moment. If not, that’s ok too, we all need to express ourselves and live our best lives in the way we feel good about. Be Well!!!!

    • You made an excellent point of the advantage of using the Be Kind brand! Love the message you wrote also. 🙂

  5. Most everything has Be Kind on it.. The December box was a little better I think, except that wrapping paper. The scarf is really nice and also the bangle.. I haven’t subbed to the box because I just don’t think it is worth the price point.. Everything has her “logo” on it, so its advertising for her.. I think the box should be much cheaper, if she is going to do THAT much advertising in her box.

    • Agree. I keep looking at spoilers for this every month deciding whether to give it a try or not. I like Ellen but I don’t like that everything in the box has her logo on it. I’ll pass.

  6. I was on the fence ordering this box but after reading the comments, I am passing.. I really liked the hair towel, and towel.. maybe the brush.. Kind of sad about everything said about her.. I have been a fan since she was doing standup..

  7. I have been trying to cancel my subscription and have sent 4 emails requesting so. The webpage to cancel does not work. I would love someone to respond to my request. This has been quite frustrating.

    • Call your credit card company and tell them to put a stop on that account. I had to do that a few years ago with Spotify. My log in suddenly wouldn’t work. There was absolutely nowhere in the app (back then. Don’t know about how.) to contact them or cancel membership. I was paying for something I couldn’t even use. I called my CC (maybe it was PayPal?) and told them and it was done.

  8. I canceled my subscription a while
    Back. It was easy. BUT, I never bought into Ellen’s whole “be kind cause I sure am” and boy, is the truth coming out. Don’t get me wrong. I used to watch her show and liked her but stopped watching, (same as Jimmy Fallon) because it was beginning to be the same spiel, praising celebrities like they all walk on water (🤦🏻‍♀️🙄🤨), and I couldn’t stomach her anymore. I can’t be the only one here that truly
    Believes all the accounts about her being made public.

  9. Why does EVERYTHING in box have to say BE KIND on it and that’s means it’s all Ellen’s products. And I hate getting a book in a box as well.

  10. I cancelled after I was billed twice at christmas, and still don’t believe I was reimbursed for.
    But there is nothing in this box that says, hey here take my $55. Nothing special.

  11. I just ordered my box! I wasn’t WOWed at first but I really need a new hair towel and I love the hat so with the coupon those two items pay for the box. I just did a little research on the coffee and I am very interested in this sample. I currently use K-cup pods and hate the waste so these would be a great replacement for single cup brewed coffee. Any items I don’t want I will pass along to my mom or my daughter. Happy with my purchase.

  12. Gotta rethink my strategy on this box. In the past I have swapped for the items in this box I have liked and thereby avoiding those that are not my taste. I have been happy with the quality and style of the items I have acquired this way. LIke most boxes, it’s trying to find the box that suits your style on a more frequent than not basis. Can’t wait to get back to swapping.

    • Hello Lainee! This would be my first box and I am not really happy with it. I don’t think anything is worth the money I paid. But where can I swap things at? and with who? I really liked the last box which is why I ordered this box but now I am stuck with 1 year worth of boxes.:( someone help!

  13. I just received my Ellen box and am very happy with it. The sunscreen is actually a premium member item! I’ve already ordered mine in the light/medium tint. I’m excited to get it! I recently purchased a hair wrap and was thinking of buying a second one so that was perfect for me. I love the tote, it’s be kind but not so in your face about it. The hat is, but it’s super cute and my favorite color so I don’t care as much. I actually like and am happy to have everything in the box, even the stuff I own similar/ the same already. This was a winner for me and makes me very hopeful for the Fall box.

    • Hi Jenn is the coupon for a free sunscreen or for an amount off? Thank you 😁👍

      • On the coupon it says it’s only for the Sun Shield liquid Spf 50. But that if you add more than one of them to your cart “the discount will be applied and spread across the products in your cart.” I only ordered one so I can’t confirm that.

  14. There is nothing wrong with what’s in this box but it’s just not anything I don’t have. I’ve got towels, brushes, hair things, hats and speakers. It’s fine and if you’re new to sub boxes probably pretty good but I’ve gotten all of those things before and personally don’t need anymore. Hope it’s a good fit for someone else!

  15. Ok, I have written customer service twice trying to cancel my subscription.
    When I try to log on, they have no record of my email, but I receive emails from them on a frequent basis.
    You know, like when they are telling me they are going to take money out of my account and her zillions of marketing promotions.
    I am so done with “Being Kind”.
    I am going to stop payment on the transaction.
    Their customer service is atrocious!!
    Beware signing up for this subscription box.
    On a side note, why is everything in this box labeled with her slogan?
    The items in my opinion are ruined.

    • Before when they had a bunch of issues with customer service people on here complained enough that the Ellen ppl commented on posts here. They fixed our issues and responded to emails. We had to write “MSA” (and something else) on the subject line and they responded fast to those emails.

    • I completely agree with the logo being on everything. I don’t even dislike Ellen. I wouldn’t use the towel even though I like it. The ice cube tray is also a bit much. It you have to tell people to ‘Be Kind’ maybe you shouldn’t have them over for drinks!

      • Awwwww that’s perfect true. Perfectly said!

    • She seems like an egomaniac and not actually very kind.

    • I heard she’s not even nice!

    • they won’t cancel mine either.

  16. C’mon, some of you are a little harsh…the sunscreen is $24, the towel is $47. I can always use another hair wrap, because one is always in the wash….this isn’t a terribly curated summer theme. I don’t adore the BE KIND branded stuff, but I can always use a hat when working outside….ice cubes are ICE CUBES. Speakers are pretty cheap, but not free….If you are looking for a box that will give you a 90% return on your dollars, this isn’t the one for you. If you think you are going to get tickets to Ellen’s show, probably not, either. If some of the items appeal to you and you want a bit to go to charity, great! I’ve subscribed since the beginning….some items I LOVE. many other I’m indifferent…those get given away, unless they can serve a function in my home, even boring. Some I actively hate….yes, HATE. I give those away, to friends who just have different taste than me. A few are still sitting on a shelf. I’ll dispose of them eventually, but just because I don’t like them doesn’t mean that Ellen is a horrible person trying to steal my money…..ok, this was the longest rant I’ve ever had ANYWHERE. Please know, I don’t think that if you are unhappy you are unjustified…..just remember, everyone is just trying to make a living for themselves (some make WAY more than other, yes, I realize) but do your research, find what works for you, and enjoy the spoils!

    • I think I’m light of her recent sketchy business practices and how she did her staff so dirty- her struggling isn’t a concern. She made sure she was financially sorted and didn’t give her staff a second thought. So giving this a pass because everyone is making a living- I feel isn’t applicable. Just my 10c… of course everyone can feel how they feel

    • #Word

    • #Amen. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  17. Given all the small businesses that are struggling, I was hoping the summer box would have supported more of them. It seems mostly Ellen store items.

    • The problem is not lack of business for small businesses that ship stuff that they manufacture or brand. The problem is the logistics of the manpower. The businesses that struggle are those that rely on foot traffic and face to face contact. Not the Etsy kitchen-table assemblers.

    • Most of these boxes are planned way in advance. When they put this together most likely we weren’t in the pandemic yet.

  18. What a weird box of clutter. I guess it’s for charity or something though.

  19. I find the name of this sub ironic since she seems to be anything BUT kind.

    • Ha! Exactly what I was thinking. I think her preaching her “Be Kind’ mantra is the biggest con ever…because she does not practice what she preaches and is not actually a kind person…especially if she deems them “beneath” her in the hierarchy of life.

  20. I actually like this box. I love the hat and the ice tray, scrunchies and towel will definitely get used. Its a pretty good box considering the times we are in. The coupon code brings the cost down to $45 so Im in.

  21. Same here. I don’t see any difference and wish I had not signed up for premium.

  22. If interested in the ZOE AYLA products all are 65% off plus free shipping, no minimum that I saw.

    • Thanks, Christy! I wish I’d known about this sooner but there are still a few things left that I could really use and I definitely wouldn’t have known about this sale without your comment.

      • Dani, I had to look to see what those hair scrunchies looked like.. curiosity! But 65% off and free shipping is a great deal. Just what all of us need.. a sale!!

  23. This is soooo bad. The irony of Be Kind on most of the merchandise when she is reportedly the opposite. This looks like something they would give the audience as they were leaving the studio as a gift for showing up.

    • I know! I do think of her differently since all that has come out. She did her staff dirty.
      Really disappointing.

  24. Glad I cancelled my subscription. I don’t want a bunch of “be Kind” products that are are of cheap quality. I had had high hopes for this box but for this price point, its an easy pass for me

  25. I bought the first box and was very happy with it. This is the first one that has tempted me especially the Sand Cloud towel. I’ll need a coupon though.

  26. I’ll pass. I dislike the color & far too much kindness in a box for me. That saying I already own all these items anyways in some shape or form.

  27. I have seen so many subs come and go, and to me, this is the absolute worst one I have ever seen. Worst customer service BY FAR, worst items, worse consistency. With all the bad news about how rude, mean, and horrible Ellen treats her staff, I am not surprised her sub has so many issues. She seems to portray someone that she is not.

    • 🙄I’ve never heard anything but positive things about Ellen. That said, she probably has very little to do with the contents of this box.

      • Then you aren’t paying attention. She has been in a lot of hot water recently with ex employees as well as other celebrities saying she’s a pretty mean person. I obviously can’t speak to the validity of those statements, but they sure are being made, in excess.

      • I just did a little googling. Eh… the celebrities I saw mentioned were banned because of homophobic remarks. Who knows? She’s done a lot of great things for people—the other stuff seems very rumor mill. The only thing I’m sure of is that the box is crappy.

      • Amy, I agree. Ellen just gave graduating seniors in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, who worked at grocery stores through the pandemic lockdown, huge cash gifts. She’s beyond generous. I’m not a subscriber to this box; but, I support Ellen’s charitable work.

      • That is called PR.

    • you’re just going with what everyone is saying. Ellen is one of the kindest people on Earth. Two years ago she gave all of the kids in my school district a new winter coat because no one could afford one.

      • I do not think any of us know what she is like behind he scenes. What we do know is that she has done “good” deeds to promote her Be Kind branding and that she has offended her own coworkers and treated them poorly during a crisis. Did she make a mistake and rely on others.. who knows. But they were her crew and she would have known that she hired a non- union crew to work from her home (jail). Has she apologized or made it right? Other talk show hosts paid their crew from their own pockets until the networks worked it out. That is class and “being kind”. When you set yourself up like she has you have an image to live up to. If you fail then you need to make up for it. .. unless you are really just NOT kind!!

  28. I paid for the premium subscription but not seeing any difference in the subscription nor giveaways or contests. Anyone have any experience with customer service on this? How are the premium, more expensive subscription, different than the regular one?

    • This is beginning to look like that…crappy…Vogue box that died on entry.
      Just be kind.
      Just say no.
      Let it die in peace.

  29. Looks like a good box. I will use most of the items. I am still waiting to see why I paid extra to be premium? So far all I got a duplicate fall box. Anyone else?

    • I’m in the exact same boat. I paod for the premium subscription but don’t see any difference, nor any announcements on giveaways or anything else. Be Kind needs to be more transparent on this. Thousands of people “upgraded” where did all this money go? I think they should refund it given the current pandemic and no shows or giveaways have been hosted.

    • My Summer box arrived today. The coupon for free sunscreen says it’s for Premium members. I’m interested to see if it’s in all of the boxes and not just those who got duped into Premium subscriptions.

  30. They forgot to write “be kind” on the scrunchies.

    • Lol seriously!

  31. Her first box (which I sadly didn’t get) was her best box IMO

    • The very first box was an awesome one. I got two when it came out. It was well worth the price! I haven’t bought another one since.

  32. Come on already with the branded items, definite overkill, pass especially at 55$!!

  33. That’s a really solid box. Tempting. My favorite hat is from Life Is Good-it is a soft and comfy ball cap.

  34. Too many branded be kind items. It is overkill.

    • Agreed! It unfortunately gives off that “gift with purchase” vibe.

    • Uffff, I agree. I might be the only one but this box looks awful to me. Too many branded items and all ordinary items we all have too much of anyways.

    • I totally agree, except for the hat. I think it’s cute. But the rest of that Be Kind stuff can go away. I’m still tormented from the double-charging a few months ago for the box that had the Be Kind wrapping paper in it. It took forever to be refunded and of course my credit card was charged interest on the amount at least once.

  35. Easily the best of the Ellen boxes yet! Sand Cloud is a well loved brand and that towel alone, provided it is normal size, is worth $47 so if you like the pink Sand Cloud towel it’s a decent deal.

    I still won’t get it, as other subscriptions with better discounts have me spoiled. I would be all over this at a $25 or $30 price point, but it’s not enough to tempt me for $55

  36. This box looks pretty good. I cancelled a couple boxes ago (and haven’t regretted it) but I wouldn’t have been sad to receive this box.

    My main issue with this box generally is that I don’t use most of the items. And although I don’t mind the items in this one, I really (really) don’t need another tote bag or beach towel (especially since beaches I don’t see myself having any beach days this summer). And I already have scrunchies and a wireless speaker. So overall, I’d say this would be great if I didn’t already have these items. I hope those that get it enjoy it!

    • I should add that I also already have a detangling brush, hair wrap, and silicone ice cube trays. So 🤷🏼‍♀️
