Q: Does it come with a cassette player?Asked by Kevin N., August 2020
Honestly, the reviews seem worse than what this is. The cassettes are in great condition, and the curation has been spot on so far, with artists I didn't even know I wanted to listen to being packaged in with stuff I already know I love. The packaging is awesome, with a little letter and candy in the box (Candy's not that amazing, but the thought is adorable) and I'm just really happy with it so far. From the few subscriptions I've tried in the past, this would have to be the best one, with obvious love and dedication put into the work!
I got this for my son who loves music. He loves getting the boxes and enjoys the tapes. I just sat down with him so he could pick the categories and we reordered.
Two of the cassettes are obviously knock offs. None of the cassettes were to my taste at all.
It’s an epic level of fail on the curation. And cratejoy is a pain in the ass. Will be trying one more month to see if they can improve but I’ll do it with them directly.
Terrible waste.i paid for 2 months but never got anything.contacted seller but got no reply.no one can help.guess they just took the money and ran.
Thanks for your message. I'm Peter and I run The Retro. I'm sorry that it took me a few days to get back to you. My colleagues and I were working flat out to ship boxes and decided to take some time off after Christmas.
Looking at our account, you've had two orders placed through CrateJoy.
Both were shipped via Royal Mail International Standard, and I've emailed you the proof of postages according to the order numbers, both being shipped on 12/12/2019.
Royal Mail says that orders can take between 10-12 working days to show up- which means we're just at the end of that lead time. Given it's Christmas, I'd imagine worst-case with American couriers your orders might show up in early 2020.
I'd be more than...
I love it! The boxes do come a bit late but it's made up for with cassettes that have obviously been selected with a lot of thought and I've been impressed with everything I've been given. Definitely worth it if you're patient!
Fantastic place! I went online looking for some classic albums for a birthday present and couldn't of done it without the help from Pete! Very satisfied, would definitely recommend :)
This was for a customer who loved all things classical rock.
This box was chosen for a customer buying cassettes for his son. He wanted to teach him about music from every decade! As we're Scots, we couldn't resist a bit of Rod Stewart.
This was a follow up to our Rock box, where the customer loved it so much they wanted more of the same!
