Customer Questions (6)


Q: Since I ordered on 3/5/21 and did the 3 month subscription, can you tell me what month and approximately when I will get the box? I did the Mystery club.Asked by Claudia F., March 2021

Peruse Book Club answered...March 2021

Thanks for your question!
Since you ordered on 3/5, your first shipment will go out the last week of March.
All shipments are mailed on the last week of the month, so your following shipments will be sent the last week of April, and the last week of May.


Q: Are the products in the box samples? Asked by Sarah A., December 2020

Peruse Book Club answered...December 2020

Hi Sarah,
Each box contains one hardcover or trade paperback book, plus 2-3 items that are not samples.


Q: Are the books included in the box hardcover or paperback? Asked by Sarah A., December 2020

Peruse Book Club answered...December 2020

The books included in Peruse boxes can be either hardcover or trade paperbacks!


Q: If an upcoming book is one I’ve already read, am I able to skip a box?Asked by Aimee D., May 2021

Peruse Book Club answered...May 2021

Hi Aimee,
Yes! You are welcome to contact us before the 15th of the month if you'd like us to skip a month for you! We can adjust the subscription renewal date on our end.
I don't think that Cratejoy offers a way to skip a month from their subscription management.
Thank you!

I gifted this to my MIL for mothers day. Wonderful company to work with! Every box came on time and was full of interesting goodies. The book selection was great and my MIL loved them all. Would definately order again.

Please read if considering ordering! I ordered a 6 month subscription as a gift in July. It was a bit of a struggle in both August and September to get an appropriate timeline on delivery, but after staying persistent the first two boxes were delivered and pleased with product. As of October Cratejoy nor I can get any communication from the seller. So going to assume they are no longer shipping anything. So far Cratejoy service has been very helpful and going to get me a refund but this is extremely disappointing and certainly do not want anyone else to be stuck in a similar situation.

Ordered over a month ago as a gift for someone special. Order status still says "order being prepared". Contacted the supplier for an update on when it will be shipped- no reply.

I canceled because I asked to skip a box and it wasn't skipped and I was charged, this all occurred after I asked for it to cancel. It's a good box, my issue lies with cratejoy not Peruse.

I received my box for The Night Shift and I'm so excited. I like that all of the items are actually useful and not just themed junk.
Spoiler - There was a really fun movie trivia game that we actually played at our last game night!
Can't wait to see what's next

Horrible. Ordered on May 6th. Today is June 25th and I still haven’t received my order. They are slow or non existent on answering emails. One of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. Oh, and yes they took my money. Don’t do it.

I'm sorry you're dissatisfied with the service that you received. We are a very small company, so I apologize that sometimes responses can take a few days.
We did respond to your multiple requests for a shipping status.
This month we were unfortunately affected by supply chain delays, and items from one manufacturer were significantly delayed. I had emailed a link to our Shipping Updates page which explains delays and informs of our expected ship date. Customers can view this page at their convenience for up to date information on box status. I would also like to note that we did offer a refund in response to your initial inquiry which we were not taken up on. When a separate request was received at a...

I received the One Italian Summer box as a gift and omg!! I’m obsessed!
The items are so much fun, the soap smells incredible, the apron is so cute and ties in well, and I’ve been wearing the sunnies daily.
I can’t wait to see what’s in the next box!!
