Q: How often does a crate come with an audio book? I am hearing impaired and wouldn't be able to use an audio book. I'd love to get this crate but I cant afford to buy things I can't useAsked by Books C., April 2020

Excellent question! In the past, we did include audiobooks in a couple of the Deluxe box editions. However, we have stopped. When you subscribe, just send us an email asking us to never include an audiobook. We'll make sure you'll get something of equal or better value to take its place.

Q: It says your sold out. When will you be taking new subscriptions?Asked by Iveila M., September 2020

Universe Bound answered...September 2020

Greetings Iveila,

Thank you for your question. We appreciate it!
When a Book box is sold out it's not because we ran out of material, it's because we want to make sure we can fulfill the subscription. We generally don't start assembling our book boxes until after the 15th. The Deluxe box in particular may have items that can't be acquired or made easily. Past boxes had special collector items or products that were made in a limited quantity and thus we had to purchase the items at an earlier date. This goes for future boxes. We are always trying to improve our boxes in many ways. Adding useful high-quality items is our priority.

Thanks again for your question.
Until then - James

Q: How soon after you make payment on your subscription do you receive your box?Asked by Diane C., July 2020

Universe Bound answered...July 2020

Greetings Diane,

Thank you for your question! We ship our boxes after the 26th of each month. Generally, boxes are dropped off at the Post Office at the end of the month. In order to receive the current month's book box, one has to subscribe on or before the 15th of the month, though we do wait until the 16th and 17th sometimes. Anyone who signs up after the 15th, sometimes after the 17th, will receive next month's book box.

We don't typically stock any of the books offered, nor do we make our bath products and exclusively made items before the 15th. By doing this we are able to keep the overall cost down because we purchase and produce exactly what we need.

I just received my second box from Universe Bound and I am SO enjoying this subscription. Lots of fun little snacks and tasty tea (with ADORABLE tiny spoons). So far I've been very excited to read the books that were sent - and I love the diversity of the characters thus far. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOX - I look forward to receiving it for weeks! This is one of the best-value boxes I've found as well as being a lot of fun.

Also, the owner was super responsive when I messaged about a slight change to my box, which I really appreciated. :) Keep up the great work!

This box blew me away!!!! I got the smallest one “simple read and relax” and it was JAMMED packed with product. And things I’ve never seen before. Very unique. The book was very current to social issues as well. I loved it and highly recommend. Unboxed in you tube channel “Arkansas Gals”

New box.

I'm usually very sceptical of these boxes but I truly love this subscription! The items and books are very well done. I'm enjoying the fact I asked for no coffee and was listened to. Well done cant wait until the next one comes.

Universe Bound was very timely in getting me my first box and when it arrived, they had shipped it in a manner to make sure it did not get damaged. I had my first cup of the tea yesterday, and the flavors were completely unique! Would definitely recommend this box to anyone looking to add uniqueness to their collection, be it the books, tea, or candle! (the candy is just a delicious bonus that reminds me of my childhood <3 )

Lots of books and goodies.

I wish there was some way to choose between coffee, tea or both. I'm allergic to coffee and notice that spoilers often have the same candy, soap so far. Does it change?

Universe Bound said...Dec 31, 2019

Greetings Julie! Thanks for the feedback. Okay, for you we will include only tea - you'll get two flavors. Staff and I were talking about re-introducing some older soap products. In fact, even though the January Box spoiler pic shows African soap it'll include our handmade "Nebula" soap. We finished making a batch of our exclusive fragrance Jovian Rose (Sweet Pea, Bergamot, Geranium, and Damascus Rose). We are also working on introducing Diffusers.

For the candy - there is a core set that'll always be included, but we do change up with adding something different.

Enjoyable Book Box. :)

This box is an amazing gift to give someone, not only can they relax and read but they can soak in the tube in the nice smelling bathbomb or the bath powder. You can also light a pretty smelling candle to go with it. The books can be anything and what I like about this company is they use other authors that are trying to get their name out there. Never fail you also get tea, coffee treats who can not enjoy all those goodies. Come see for yourselves :)

Luv it
