I did receive my first box and it was super cool! I had a question about it so I message the seller and did receive a reply. I followed up with another question to which I received no response. I let that go and waited for my second shipment. It never came. I messaged the seller 3 times about my missing shipment and got absolutely no reply. Currently I am working with cratejoy to get a refund. In the meantime, I definitely got charged $136 for three shipments and only received one of them. Fortunately I listened to the advice of another reviewer who also had a bad experience and I put it on my credit card. So if cratejoy doesn't fix the issue next week, I will be getting a refund from my credit card. So while the Box itself was really cool, I strongly encourage everyone to find a different box shipment. Since this seller cannot be bothered to actually ship the boxes after you pay for them. Which kind of makes me question the quality of what was actually in my box. It looked cool, but can you trust it when the seller is obviously deceitful? Which is what I would call taking money for three months of shipments and then refusing to send anything past the first month. Fortunately, my credit card has great customer service.
Wow! This box is like an awesome mini vacation! I can't wait to read the books!
Update: I liked both of the books. I wanted to be surprised by something different than what I would normally choose, and it was great to expand my reading comfort zone. I also learned a lot about a country that I really knew nothing about!
Update: I loved the first box but never got my next box and was never contacted by the seller. I reached out multiple times. Guess I got ripped off.
Hello! Thank you for your order and for reviewing us! Please do let us know how you like the books.
I received a child book, the other items may have cost $20 and didn't feel anything like an excursion. I have contacted three times now to cancel my subscription, instead, it was renewed and no one has contacted me yet.
I want to CANCEL this subscription as a gift. It was reported that something within the box was putrid and the recipient threw it all out. She got a pair of socks, bookmark, matchbook with bone, soapstone animal of some sort, 2 French crepes, mushroom from Mexico, another box of rancid items. This is not what a mostly home bound 80 year would like nor I. Please give me a refund. I will pay for the 1 box but not the other 2. Please adjust credit. What a disappointment!!!
Didn’t get a box for about two and a half months and couldn’t get email responses. Then I received two boxes in a single day. Items were broken and didn’t make much sense for the destination. Skip this one. Coffee and a Classic or The Wordy Traveler are both much better (and reliable) choices!
AVOID AT ALL COSTS! I received two boxes, was charged for the third, but it never shipped. Contacted seller three times with no response. Contacted Cratejoy and The seller wouldn’t respond to them either. They refunded the cost of the third box I didn’t get within just a few days.
I received the first box after I ordered in April but nothing after that. I tried multiple times to contact the seller as did cratejoy support. Thanks to cratejoy for refunding me the unused portion of my subscription. I have subscribed to lots of boxes and this is the first time I have had this experience.
Nothing like the description, way over priced, and a colossal waste. I will NEVER purchase again.
