Not worth the price

I liked the few months but I slowly realized its not worth the price tag. You get 1 book, a little bit of something to drink for example 2 packages of hot chocolate and something to eat. Sadly they give you the smallest possible food and drink items. What am I really paying for when they can get the boxes out on time and barley but anything in the box. There are a lot better box clubs to choose from.
Unless you are in the UK I don't see this being worth anyone's money.

This is simply a scam. DO NOT ORDER THIS!
They will not ship out your parcel until you remind them multiple times. I paid for three separate boxes and only ever got one! That means they took £30 from me for nothing in return. Please do not make my mistake and give these people money as it will only stress you out and cost you your hard earned pounds.

I live in the UK (where this company is also based). All I can say is, if you are happy emailing them every other day, and waiting three months for each box to arrive (but still paying for the others in between) then this is the service for you!
I received February’s box at some point in April/May. (Again, UK based seller and UK based customer - it would’ve arrived quicker if the postman had decided to take a cardboard box with him around the world and filled it himself).
I was contacting the seller frequently, sometimes getting one line emails telling me to just wait a bit longer for it to be delivered, others promising to provide me with tracking codes when it had been dispatched, then providing tracking codes that didn’t exist. Others said there were delays within the postal service, of which Royal Mail had not mentioned anywhere themselves. I then received another email response (after plenty of others) saying it was ACTUALLY their service centre that hadn’t even sent the box out in the first place! If I could’ve rolled my eyes any harder, I would’ve been able to see the back of my skull.
Don’t expect to find any information on their website or social media pages to corroborate any “problems” they’re experiencing in getting their boxes shipped/delivered/whatever else they feel like saying on a particular day either. They seem like a shy bunch, unless it comes to online promotion, of course. You must liaise with their world class customer service staff for any shred of information every step of the way.
Evidently, this service is fine for some who have found that their expectations have been met. However, a near 50/50 split in good and bad customer reviews isn’t very promising. The boxes are ok, but the hassle it can take to get them is far from. Go to a bookshop instead.
