Q: If I order this box today will it be here for Christmas Asked by Jamie D., December 2019
Maybe by Christmas of next year. I started my "subscription" in July. I'm still waiting for my first box or refund. Or at least a response to the several messages I sent asking for status. Good luck if you give them a try it looked like a fun box.
I signed up for this box in July 2019. It's now December. I'm still waiting. I've tried several times contacting someone but I have yet to receive a response, a box, or a refund. Any of which would be acceptable. I pretty much wrote it off until I received an email with a question from someone asking if they ordered now would they receive by Christmas. Well, it just reopened the aggravation of being ripped off all over again. So here I am writing my review. The only reason for the one star is because they have to get something. Kind of like a participation trophy.
Based on the photos that this subscription uses on line to advertise, trust me when I say, what you receive is not even remotely close to what you see online. After two weeks of chasing down the seller with emails, I finally received my first package. Ugh! Contents are childish, boring, lackluster. I even received a grade-school, lined school book (the cover can be colored) that I can pick up at my local Walmart for .50. If I were 12-15 years of age, maybe I would have enjoyed it. I'm blown away at the photos used on line, because that is what I thought I was receiving. Not a chance. Cancelled my subscription. Don't waste your money, just go to Michael's, Joanne's, and Hobby Lobby and choose exactly what you want. What a disappointment.
Like the other previous comments, I have not received my shipment. She FINALLY emailed me after trying to contact her numerous times by email and through facebook and instagram. She said that she had a recent death in the family but that doesn't explain why Goldtong (See comment below) never got her box back in April/Month. I hate to accuse someone of lying but this seems extremely fishy... She told me two weeks ago that she would refund me and yet, no money has hit my account. SHOCKER. UGH! AVOID THIS COMPANY LIKE THE PLAGUE
This is by far one of the best boxes ever!! I've only received two boxes so far, but they have been jam packed with a lot of really awesome things. A huge plus is that she posts spoilers throughout the month on instagram so it's really exciting to see what's coming. I love it and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes bullet journaling, decorating their planners, or paper crafting.
These boxes are a treasure trove of things you can use monthly if you are a journal junkie, a calendar freak, a planner user, or for other crafts. The items are carefully selected, often exclusive, and sometimes made by Christina or a guest artist. Great tips included too.
I'm seriously considering calling my credit card company and disputing the charge as fraud. I discovered Creative Mercantile on April 10th. I didn't want to pay for a subscription and wait a whole month so I emailed Christina and asked if I could start in April. She replied within 30 minutes, "I do have a few April boxes - I can easily adjust your sub so you start with that one :)" So happily, I create a log in, subscribe, and sent her my reference number. After an hour she replies, "Great!! I will get this off to you today - tomorrow at the latest"
Well... It's now May 3rd and I've yet to receive this wondrous box shipped via first class mail. I've sent 3 emails within the week asking for an update or tracking number. ZERO RESPONSE! Odd that, considering she had no issues responding to my first emails within the hour!
If they don't reply within the week I'm disputing the charge and reporting Creative Mercantile to the BBB.
I already said how much I love this subscription but the thing I wanted to say is that I wanted only one or two boxes at the most, so I cancelled my subscription only to renew it!! I like it so much I decided to keep on! Cannot wait for my next box...I really like am happy!
As usual, this was the best box ever! I The February/ Valentine's box was amazing! I loved the fortune cookie cards we got to make. Best of everything in that box and I can't wait until next months! I am sorry for people who say they aren't happy because I can honestly say, I am amazed of how great it is especially compared to others out there.
