UPDATE~ based on my 1st monthly crystal pouch, which i loved, I got a 6 month subscription. Once I found out that starting w/ the 2nd would be on the chakras, I added an additional 3-month subscription, so it wouldn't end before i received all the chakras. Now I regret it. This subscription was really hit or miss. I got a few really nice/less common crystals, but most i won't even keep in my collection. This subscription actually started to stress me out and I would feel apprehensive leading up to getting it-- i mean it's CRYSTALS! People are primed to LOVE crystals! A crystal subscription should not cause stress! Today, August 30th, I received my 9th and final pouch, and i'm so relieved it's over. I bought this as a way to practice self-care and treat myself but I wish i had spent the $143.15 on a few nice crystals.
Here are my main issues:
1. shipping - they always arrived on the last day or 2 of the month, 1 time several days into the next month, not including their issue they had with the July orders, which came 3 weeks into August. I would get an email from Cratejoy saying, "you have a box on the way" and then check the tracking and it would always be a week or more before it registered as received by the post office. Yes, i know...
I've been getting this box for 5 months now. I splurged on the annual subscription with my stimulus check. I originally won a free box through a Cratejoy contest in December and fell in love. I look forward to this every month. Although the values they list for each item are ridiculously inflated, I still feel like the value of the box far exceeds the cost....esp when you consider that shipping is included (in the U.S)
I use most of the items and it has enhanced my spiritual practice and made me feel more connected to Spirit, and brought more beauty in my life. If there's anything I don't care for, I can usually gift it or even re-sell.
I've also had really responsive service from their customer care team when needed.
I do wish they still sourced more from small companies instead of creating their own products so much, b/c i'm getting really bored of that same style of evil eyes-hearts-crescent moons-crystals print on everything...it reads very pre-teen and i am much older than that. Other than that, I'm a happy customer.
