I was always skeptical of the subscription services - I've written "why would I pay someone to pick out stuff for me" more than once on Facebook.
And then I took the leap with America's Crate because of the mission and I get it. I'd never find the stuff they do, I'd never hear of the companies they work with, and I'd never get that awesome surprise at my door each month.
Knowing that my money is going to support American businesses is the feel good part, getting kicka** American products is the fun part.
I can't believe it took so long for someone to do this. Already looking forward to my next crate!
My husband has received two of his Washington's crate boxes and they are packed with Awesome stuff... We loved the giant sequoia!
Wow! So impressed with this company! I subscribed for my husband as a surprise and the first box we got had the most incredible United States of America wood map! This beautiful piece has paid for the subscription hands down! Way to not disappoint! Can’t wait for the next crate!!
Signed up for the Freedom Crate and, was super excited to see what this Made in America crate was all about.
This first crate included a toiletry kit made from real Cordura by Topo Designs, one of the best bag makers in the country. I was blown away.
That it's not just "stuff" but things I can actually use in my life makes this something special among all the subscription services - plus none of them are all Made in the USA!
This has been one of the coolest things I've gotten. I got the box on the spur of the moment and I'm happy I did.
The "stuff" is fun and useful and who doesn't want to support American companies?
Get it. Love it. Looking forward to each month!
I surprised my boyfriend with this a few months back and it's great to see how excited he gets every month when the box shows up!
I'm definitely going to order another for my dad as a Christmas gift.
It took me a long time to actually decide to sign up. I had been debating America's Crate for months and kept seeing the ads before finally taking the plunge.
My best piece of advice would be not to wait as long as I did!
So far our whole family has loved every crate we've received. The only product we weren't sure about when we saw it was "Colorful Fire". It looked like something silly but it's made the fire pit fun for the last few nights.
Great job, America's Crate.
I'm not a review person. I always wondered what makes people right them but the America's Crate I received this month is something I just have to brag about.
The crate arrived in just a plain brown box so I got a little nervous about it but as soon as I opened it the first thing I noticed was how good it smelled. It was really goos so I started digging through everything to find out what smelled that good.
I saw the glasses, the filtered water bottle, and all the other stuff and couldn't figure it out until I realized one of the boxes said "grenade soap" on it. That was it!
I opened it up and it's a bar of soap shaped like a grenade so I took a picture and logged in to write this just so I could brag.
I splurged last month to get my husband the top level crate and spent the next two weeks waiting for the box to arrive, hoping I wouldn't be let down.
I definitely wasn't. His reaction was pure happiness.
The only thing we're dealing with is where in the house to put this great wood artwork. That's me holding it and I'm 5'6".
He's already asked me when the next box is coming.
I signed up for a year of the Freedom Box, 12 boxes for about $1,100 total, using a discount code. The full retail value of the first box, sans shipping cost, is about $100 (June 2021 shipment). I got a pair of Ben Shot rocks glasses, a Statue of Liberty imprinted pint glass, a patriotic decal, laser printed coasters which when put together are a US map, a refreshable US MAP wood car freshener with scented oil(arotags), and a paperback book by Mark Divine. The rocks glasses came in a great protective and gift able box of their own, as did the Arotag, but everything else was haphazardly thrown into the box, with very little packing material to protect it. The book suffered most, with both the cover and interior pages being bent and folded up. The pint glass is suspiciously reminiscent of a promotional item I got for free from a company desiring my business. The Ben Shot glasses and the Arotag were the best items in the box. The coasters look nice, but have very rough edges. I am hoping to be more excited about the next box, but I'm not unhappy with the first one.
Just got the first box in and I'm thoroughly impressed. Piece by piece as I unpacked the box it just kept getting better and better!
Great job, guys!
What I got in my first crate is even better than I what I was hoping it would be. But I really had to brag about this bottle of hot sauce that's shaped like a grenade! Too cool!
This is one of the best boxes ever. All of the merchandise is top quality and AMERICAN made. Some of the products are everyday, but so many are unique. Such as the glass with the bullet in it. And the credit card sized steel bottle opener. The Polar Bottle certainly lives up to its name. My iced tea stays cold for hours. I usually share the boxes with my son. He’s a combat veteran and can relate to some of the items. If anyone subscribes to this, you won’t be sorry.
I subscribe to the quarterly Washington ultimate crate. The first box was good and had a few high quality items like a multi purpose camping tool. My second box got here and all I can say is WOW! I got a full sized metal sign along with other awesome American made products that I can't wait to use. I would definitely recommend this company and their crates.
He loved the box
My wife got me the Freedom Crate from America's Crate me as a Christmas gift. Best. Gift. Ever.
I waited a few months to write the review because I was worried it was one good box and then... nothing. Not the case! Each month the box has been themed and very cool. It's not just stuff that sits on a shelf, it's things I can use or things I can do. Seriously, Best. Gift. Ever.
I signed up for a freedom crate right before Christmas time last year and have stuck with it since then. Although I loved the first crate I got, it almost seems like it gets better each month. The items are all well thought out and scream AMERICA. Will probably be upgrading to the washington's crate next month :)
I really wanted to love this. I purchased a 3 month subscription for my husband as a gift. Total cost including shipping was close to $75 EACH for 3 boxes. The first box contained two glasses, a book and an air freshener. The second box contained a book, a keyring, a sticker and a block of plywood with George Washington's picture on it. In NO way are either of those worth anywhere close to $75. I am embarrassed to have given this as a gift. I've already canceled my subscription but it was a total and complete waste of money. To make matters worse, shipping takes forever. Extremely disappointed and will never order a subscription service again.
Junk. $50 box and we got another glass (we've gotten one or two glasses in every box!), a sticker, 3 air fresheners and a frisbee. Max $10 value. Embarrassed that I got this subscription as a gift for my husband.
Cool idea, poor execution and customer service. products received were similar each month. no option to give suggestions of your interests, therefore received items we will not use. I cancelled prior to when they told me the auto-renew would happen, but the auto-renew happened a day early and they would not cancel or provide any options except that I could return each of the boxes after they arrive for a PORTION of what I paid. DO NOT RECCOMEND. there are much better monthly subscriptions out there that I have enjoyed much more with better customer service experiences.
I bought the most expensive box figuring you get more stuff than what you paid for and to try it. That was a mistake. What I received was probably less than 1/3 of the value of what I paid. Huge ripoff.
Run away from there awesome ads, bought for my son for his Birthday, shipment was 4months late on the first shipment, then his next 2 shipments were the same identical boxes same items, they dont care, I was so excited when I ordered it, he did t say anything just thanks , I was so embarrassed, as a USN Veteran, so wrong, then they took more money out of my account, no one cares
Look at that pic. That's an American made hat. Do you know how hard it is to find a hat made here? I've looked at hats in a bunch of places and not seen one in the wild.
When I opened the crate and it was just one of the things in there, I knew this was the right choice for me. I'm all in on America's Crate and excited to see what other cool things come next month!
My boyfriend and I have gone back and forth trying to one up each other on gifts for as long as we've known each other and have given ourselves a set budget so it doesn't get too far our of hand.
America's Crate made me the clear winner! He received a few boxes and has conceded defeat (for now).
Absolutely worth it!
