Every month I get a box in the mail from PopSugar. It contains an assortment of goodies aimed at female consumers.
For a monthly subscription fee, I have opened boxes that contain costume jewelry, scarves, snacks, makeup, etc. The estimated retail value of all the items exceeds the monthly subscription fee, but of course that is relevant to the value of the items that are randomly selected for the box. A bottle of purple nail polish may have a retail value of $12, but to me it’s a giveaway to someone who digs that color — that someone is not me.
Overall, I have been pleased with the items and it’s just fun to get a pleasant surprise in the mail instead of the usual bills.
Before you think this is a guest post for the Shoptimist blog that I accidentally posted here on Happy Wag, I am going somewhere pet-related with this.
Dogs can get in on this monthly-subscription-surprise-box action, too.
Yes, your pooch can get his/her own surprise package from BarkBox.
To subscribe, go to the website, choose the size of your dog (small & cute, just right, or big & bold) and then choose your price plan — $29 for a single month, $24 per month for a three-month subscription, or $19 per month if you opt for a six-month plan. There is no pricing difference for size of dog and shipping is included.
What does you pup get for the money?
Each box contains a combination of four to six treats or toys and hygiene products. The website reads “We put a great deal of thought, research, and time in creating each month’s box, from only choosing high quality vendors using top ingredients in their treats, to observing our own pups put certain toys to the test. We’re really proud of our boxes because we know every item is something we’ve seen pups not only enjoy, but benefit from stimulation wise and health wise. And that’s what our goal is; to make pups happy with healthy, life-enriching gifts each month.”
Any of you readers get a BarkBox? If so, how does your dog like it? Are you impressed with the quality of the items and has it prompted you to buy any of these items retail?
Do you feel like it’s a good deal?
Bark up readers. I am considering getting one subscription to share between my three “big & bold” pooches and would love some feedback.
