The theme for one of the upcoming GlobeIn November 2020 Boxes is…Umami!

Dear Mavens,

Fall is officially here to stay and as we transition to quieter times, we tend to seek shelter at home, with family, and with loved ones. In many cultures, food is seen as a way to express love. “Are you hungry?” and “have you eaten?” are terms of endearment that translate to “I love you.”

This month, us here at GlobeIn want to help you express your love with a kitchen and cuisines from all over the world. It’s time to warm up those kitchens with heat from the stove and oven and whip up something delicious. Get ready to fill the hearts and tummies of those close to you. No need to say “I love you” when your food says it all — but it’s still nice to hear!”

What do you think of the theme for November?

Anyone try their Facebook Mavens group ? I tried to access it and there’s an error message. I did receive the following message after my 3rd email to them about my September and October boxes:

Dear Barbara,

Thank you for sharing your feedback and frustrations about our shipping delays both with the Customer Service Team and in our GlobeIn Mavens Community. I hear you and I know that I’ve let you down not just this month, but for the past several months. For this, I sincerely apologize.

I’m sure you’ve heard from our team that we are moving to a new fulfillment center and I also know you may have grown weary of this explanation. I take responsibility for not having addressed our fulfillment issues and shipping delays sooner.

The process of moving fulfillment centers usually takes 6-12 months and we will have completed our move in just under 3 months because we believe it was urgent and critical to improving our customer’s experience.

There are 12 major steps to the process of moving to a new fulfillment center and we want to assure you that we are nearing the end. In full transparency, I want to share with you these steps, so that you can see how far we’ve come and where we are going.

In some cases, we are still waiting to receive items from artisan groups. Some items are still held up in global ports and at US Customs due to COVID. We may continue to see delays across the supply chain due to COVID this year, as rates spike again. Closures are out of our control, but we are doing everything we can to meet your expectations while at the same time, supporting the artisans who make GlobeIn possible. For this reason, and when possible, we may split up your order so that you receive the items in stock without delay.

We estimate your September box shipping by November 3rd and we estimate your October box shipping by November 9th. However, since shipments are going out every day, you may receive your tracking number(s) sooner.

If you have any other feedback for us, please always feel free to visit https://globein.com/maven-feedback. Our team reviews this feedback together on a monthly basis and discusses how to improve. We always aim to make your experience better and we know that this move, although difficult now, will ultimately make your shipping faster and better in the coming months.
Sincerely yours,
Vlad
Co-Founder & CEO

I did receive something similar about the shipment centers. But I don’t understand why they’re still advertising new boxes if they can’t deliver! Seems like they should just put the box on hold for now. I’m thinking about disputing the charges since I still haven’t received any word about tracking on a September box and I’ve contacted them twice.

Alison

I have been so looking forward to the winter box and am so disappointed. I knew it was going to be bad after seeing the items in customization #1…it’s all downhill from there. Headband??? These items are like leftovers from some dark corner of the stockroom!

MJ

I would not recommend this subscription box right now. They are months behind in delivering boxes, customer service replies with blanket responses, and everything is blamed on COVID, although they should be getting accustomed to the new normal. They encourage new subscribers but don’t respect the ones they already have. And, on top of really late delivery, it is not uncommon to receive a broken item. A person shouldn’t feel lucky when an Item arrives Intact. I am an annual subscriber and I’ve received at least six broken items. Four could not be replaced because they were out of stock, so I received add on credit. I have also ordered items and then weeks to months later received an email that the items are out of stock. More add on credit. However, it’s almost impossible to get the add ons you want because of the mad dash when the add on shop opens for the month. So, to sum up, only subscribe if you really aren’t concerned about getting the items you select or receiving broken items, as well as waiting months for a monthly selection. Also, I highly don’t recommend planning on gift giving items, because more likely than not you’ll have to give the recipient an IOU. There are other shops and subscription boxes out there that support fair trade that have way better business models.

Lane

I have not received my August or September boxes, and I get generic cut and paste scripted email replys that don’t provide me with any information like status or expected shipping dates. I will be contacting PayPal to get my money back. Terrible.

Sam

Maybe I’ll do the same if I don’t get any of my boxes by Nov 1st. I signed up in August and no box… This is getting ridiculous.

Sam

I still haven’t even received my September box let alone an October box. I’ve reached out to support and they just said “boxes are delayed” and weren’t able to give me any specific estimate. Anyone else experiencing the same?

Denise

Yes. Same here. Their customer service is terrible. Should have known that from last year but thought maybe they got better.

Michelle

Yep. They always take my money out on time though.

Barbara

Me too I haven’t received my September box and on their Facebook group there are people who haven’t received their August boxes. I have emailed twice and received some generic response with no actual time frame. I paid for a 3 month subscription and didn’t renew because of these issues. It’s a shame I did receive my August box timely and I really liked the products. But I won’t be renewing because my September box was supposed to ship by 9/25 and nothing and now I wonder if the October box will ship out when it’s supposed to. Very disappointing.

Sam

Glad to hear it’s not just me! Yeah, I signed up for a 3-month subscription in August and I definitely won’t be renewing. I understand that there are probably supply chain issues due to covid-19 but it’s disappointing that there’s been no communication to the customers about it (other than them pushing their endless sales to me via email…).

LJ

I’m betting that bag of rice is part of the box.

Stephanie

Yup, and that rice will have a MSRP of $25 I bet…..lol

Piper

And it’s not sushi rice. Which is what you really need for the rolls they have pictured.

Julia

So overpriced chopsticks, a couple of tiny bowls, and the umpteenth slice of wood board. Got it.
