Q: I mistakenly made purchase for a month to month subscription when meaning to only do a "1-time box purchase." I ended up cancelling subscription. Will I still receive the box I paid for? Asked by Laura S., January 2022

Deadbolt Mystery Society answered...January 2022

Yes, you will receive the box you paid for. We ship all subscription boxes at the beginning of every month.

I also did this. We just got our first box so I canceled since I only wanted one. There were no problems at all. We had so much fun sloving the box that we just signed back up for the subscription haha.

Q: So you could not use this with 6 people?Asked by Cindy S., October 2021

Deadbolt Mystery Society answered...December 2021

Hey Cindy! You could solve our mysteries with 6 people, but we recommend 1-4 people. The more people solving the mystery the less there is for each person to do.

There were some meaningless clues that did not make sense to the story and were circumstantial. We thoroughly enjoyed the box though and spent three hours diving in. The theme was great and we are excited for our next one!

Subscription service - a trap.

BEWARE: This company renews forward a full 30 days BEFORE you are shipped the product. You may think you have cancelled, but it is not actually cancelled. I ended up with 80$ of product that was "cancelled" and it was a hassle to keep following up on them. Basically, I paid over 120$ for 3 boxes that is just packaging and copies. Not a fan.

We have received three boxes so far and love these games. We look forward to receiving a new one each month! In fact, I just extended my order for another six months.

Hi Brenda,
We are sorry for your disappointment and feel like there is some misunderstanding here. You have, indeed, sent us two emails (one on December 22 and one on December 24). Both emails were responded to within 15 minutes of our receipt of them. We have reached out to you again via the email we have on file for you with screenshots of those conversations. It's possible that those replies ended up in spam so be sure to check there. As for as the shipping schedule, we apologize for any confusion. We have our shipping schedule posted on our listing and have the information also listed in the email confirmation you should have received after placing your order....

I have tried almost every mystery box company currently available--some are good and some are bad--however these boxes are amazing! They have a clear order of events and the clues are hard but not unsolvable. The time that I spend on them is well worth the money spent. The quality of the materials is fantastic! The best part is that these boxes would work for someone just starting out with this hobby or for someone experienced! They also offer sales of past boxes and they ship fast. Great company, great product, great experience!

Deadbolt Mystery Society said...Oct 26, 2021

Our creative teams works diligently creating stories that intrigue and keep you guessing until the very end. We are glad to see you were up for the challenge and successfully closed some of those cases, Detective!
Thanks for the recommendation! We really appreciate it!

I order two Deadbolt Mystery box subscriptions to be sent to two different address, I have no idea how your website put the same address on both packages. Thank goodness I was able to redirect the first shipment to the correct address. The fact that I ordered them separately it makes no sense to me that it was wrong.

Deadbolt Mystery Society said...Dec 13, 2021

Hi Carla, we're sorry for the issue with your order. We ship to whatever address was placed on the order at the time of purchase. You mentioned ordering the two separately so you should have received an order confirmation for each subscription with the address attached to each order and instructions to contact us if the address was incorrect. We don't make any changes to the addresses on file for orders unless we are specifically contacted and asked to do so by purchaser.

It’s absolutely impossible to get a word back from Customer Service. I told them I needed to cancel my subscription, but wanted to confirm I could still access the hints while going thru the boxes. Instead, they renewed my subscription for 6 more months. It’s a rip off.
I hate to leave bad reviews…but maybe this will get their attention!!!!’

Deadbolt Mystery Society said...Dec 11, 2021

Hey Stephanie, we are sorry that you felt the need to leave us a one star review to get our attention. Normally, an email to us will work just fine. We have been working with many people on a daily basis assisting them with their accounts. Also since you have received 6 months worth of boxes at the time of your review, you have also received 6 copies of the Start Here sheet of instructions included in each box that provides two separate email address that you can use to contact us along with messaging instructions via our social media accounts. When we check our email inbox and all of the other methods we've provided for customers to contact us, we don't...
