I do plan on staying with this one, but will probably do another 3 or maybe even 6 month subscription when my current 3 month sub ends.

Oh and did I say I love my April box??

 

Well I REALLY love it. I will use everything and I am especially looking forward to the Shea Terra Organics Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Wash--> 'Microdermabrasion in a bottle' wink.gif

I got my April box too, so sweet of them! My june one is here, but its at my apartment office and they closed before I got home. I looooove them, but I canceled because I really can't justify it. I will probably re-sign up if I see the July box is awesome.

The July box is up. And looking at the Jne box picture, its way better than June. I will receive that one tomorrow.

Looks pretty good to me. I am interested in about 90% of the products. And I want to see what the Nia workout is all about.

I like that they show whats in next month's box, so that you can keep the monthly sub and just skip whenever you want to. Like Julep. 

 

Does anyone have it monthly now? If so, when do they charge you?

Ok, I finally got to look through my june box...I'm disappointed. The "giftcard" we got is for $25, nothing on that sight is under 50, not to mention the clothes they sell only go up to a size 10. So that is useless to me, the OG sacks are 60+ dollars, and I don't need another bag at least not for 30 dollars. The other samples were miniscule. I guess I won't be restarting my sub. 

post #69 of 197
I agree the June box totally sucked. So far I have only liked April. But July looks good so I am looking forward to that box.
post #70 of 197

My step- mom gave me the 2 boxes they've sent her in the past 2 weeks since I've been staying with her. I think there's something way WRONG with this subscription.

WHY the huge box? WHY all the random colorful pieces of paper that want us to buy other things not even in the box?

And I totally agree about the $25 off coupon. I went to the Yoga wear website, and a plain tank top was almost $50!! Who are they kidding with those prices? I felt insulted that this was the " value added " item.

 

Did anyone think the size of the 1 by 1 inch soap was generous? What about the half a pinkie finger sized Yu-Be moisturizer? I tried the nutrition bar, and gagged. So, I got a small bag of soy nut mix. The two boxes weer identical. Since I spent most of my time on the sofa or in bed healing, I have plenty of time to  go over these boxes and see what is really there vs. what it looks like on first sight.

 

This is just my personal, unbiased prediction, but I think Klutchclub is mostly smoke and mirrors. I do not think they provide value for the money, and for a company which stresses health, wellness, and nutrition, and natural products, they waste a huge amount of natural resources on colorful printed paper this and that, and their huge box is way too large for the meager contents within.

The thing is, that the huge box was necessary for April and May. I liked those boxes and felt they were a good value, but June was just awful.

I recently started subscribing to sample boxes... so far 12.... including Klutchclub...
Yes it's a lot... but i blame all of you :p  ...    haha.. j/k 
 
i bought the daily candy deal. 
But i bought it after reading reviews here and read that May and June boxes were dissappointing..
But saw that Julys looked promising.... i checked to see the July box. 
 
The deal did not indicate what month it will be sending out...
but the deals name was "KlutchClub - Wellness and beauty products delivered monthly"
i assumed it would be for July....
 
Well... I receieved a shipping notice for 2 packages on 7/1.. 
So i was worried that they might have sent out 2 by mistake so I called 
and the rep explained that the deal i bought was for MAY and JUNE boxes!!
 
So I said.. thats very disappointing.. I thought I was getting July's box..
I bought the deal cuz I liked the July's box.
and she told me that if I like the 2 boxes I purchased..
I can purchase the subscription for July.... 
 
 
Sigh....  
 
 
I really wanted to like you Klutchclub. :(

IMO, only a very inexperienced person in the marketplace could possibly be happy with Klutchclub. Or a person being paid to promote the box. I am so sorry that you are joining the ranks of the disappointed and now un-subscribed, but mostly, I applaud your common sense!!! :)

 

The owner has emailed my step mother NUMEROUS times trying to get her to accept yet another free box.. The come- ons are INCREDIBLY deceptive. I have time to look at the website and see what's in the boxes,and my step mom doesn't have time to deal with Julie ( the CEO) and her emails..


IMO, KlutchClub is the biggest rip off still in business. Meaning  that Klutch puts about $5.00 worth of an energy bar and some other token item like coconut water in the box, and the rest is a huge empty box filled with shredded paper, leaflets for other items. Also, a Yoga download has NO value, since they are on the Internet in the public domain for free.

LOLS, I guess that I am an "inexperienced person in the marketplace" since I was happy with my may box. I did enjoy it very much, actually. I had to cancel it though because I'm already spending a lot of money on other things. I guess that I also don't have common sense since I myself didn't want to unsubscribe but I needed to because it was unnecessary at the moment. LOLS biggrin.gif

Honey, I've seen your posts, you're hardly an inexperienced shopper haha. However, it's very easy to forget (for all of us) that our needs aren't necessarily EVERYone's needs. MyGlam is a great example: HelloLeilani and Fairest of All simply adore it, but a lot of people are totally "meh" about it. I happen to love Birchbox, yet many here don't, etc. etc.

The point was that IMO ( and in the opinions of a lot of people who have cancelled with KC) is that   Klutchblub lies and misleads people month after month. People who do not have time to see what they promise vs what is actually delivered MIGHT NOT catch the differences for a few months.

 

Yes, I think it is an extremely poor value, and I think Julie is extremely disingenuous to keep promoting a very poor product which is not all that cheap, as you pointed out.

 

Buying into deceptive marketing practices month after month is the sign of someone who is either very busy or very naive. This is a general statement, and NOTHING I posted was aimed at you, because I don't even know you.
I hope you understand the difference between a generalized statement about perceived poor value and misrepresentation of same, and whatever you choose to do.

You really would probably like Conscious Box a lot more than that KlutchClub thing though. Conscious Box is chock full of great things.
Oh, and this is not a paid endorsement for Conscious Box. I will never do that.


Thanks, and I am sorry you chose to make this personal,

Laura

Just to give my two cents, I have tried conscious box and I think they are comparable. Some months they send crap and some they hit it out of the park. klutchclub is a better value than conscious box is most of the time.

I also got the Daily Candy deal and am a little disappointed, but the boxes look nice and they extended the gift cards/coupons so they can still be used. I received conscious box for two months and wasn't impressed. I got more usable items and a better value (to me) when I had Eco emi. But I know others love conscious box. It's just a matter of what you like smile.gif I probably won't subscribe to klutchclub but I will enjoy the boxes I get

I don't really find conscious box and klutchclub comparable. I liked my April and May klutch boxes but June was a disappointment. Klutchclub is a fitness box, and it is geared more towards people who work out imo than conscious box. I still like klutch club and I don't find them to be "deceptive" whatsoever, but I'm not continuing my sub because $18 is too much for things I can't utilize. 

post #82 of 197

Hi Everyone!

 

This is Julie, the CEO of KLUTCHclub.  First of all, I want to thank each and everyone of you for your candid feedback.  Your commentary and public posts in open forums is what helps us improve our products and create a better offer for everyone.  I personally read all customer service emails to know what people are saying about us.  I have responded only to about 20 of them and have personally reached out to folks who have had very negative experiences as it is important for us to retain our members.

 

I do have to say that as a new company, we have experienced very positive and very negative reviews and instead of being defensive, what we do is incorporate the constructive criticism to help improve the boxes.  Our April and May boxes were very well received, while June was not considered as great.  While some people did not like the coupons, some people loved them (Moving Comfort, a sports bra sold at high end department stores like Nordstrom was a big hit) so what we learned was to add more products to the box but I do want to be honest with you all tell you we will have fewer coupons but not necessarily take out the coupons as some people did find them valuable (they are discounts on high end brands that normally do not do coupons and have only offered them to our members).  As a result, we do want to please people who may not find the coupons valuable so our July and August boxes will each have 9 products in them and will take up the space of the big box (while leaving just a bit of room to not crush the food products).  

 

Unfortunately, on the deals like Daily Candy, I have to be honest and tell you that we are locked into sending the boxes we advertised in the deals- not our current month boxes.  So what you see on the deal picture and the fine print you see is what you get.  For customers who were not satisfied with the deal or thought they were "mislead", we offered a substantial discount on the next month's box.  Given that our shipping costs are about $8 and the discounts we give you on the deal and post deal are quiet hefty, I am sure you can imagine we do not make any money off the deals- it is simply a way for us to introduce our brand to new customers as we are so new.

 

As far as my personal honesty and integrity is concerned, KLUTCHclub is a brand built on authenticity and this is why I have purposely chosen to NOT be a "surprise and delight" company but instead have chosen to preview each month's box weeks ahead of time so that you know what you will get.   We also do not take payment from companies who sell products to our members after introducing them to the box because we want to only feature products we believe are great and not promote one more than another (we do not feature products of the "highest bidder").  When we say the deals are exclusive to KLUTCHclub members, we MEAN it.  Our contracts with the brand partners all clearly state that the brand partners cannot make the discounts available to anyone but KLUTCHclub members so the exercise downloads you receive (yogadownload, barre3) are not free downloads to anyone else.

 

I welcome any and all positive or negative comments in public forums or in private and feel free to continue the conversation or send me a personal email.  I value all criticism and use it as an opportunity to improve the offering (for you- the critic- or for the new customer who signs on).

 

Thank you for taking the time to express your opinion- I very much value the level of initiative and passion.

 

Get Ready!

 

Julie Bashkin, CEO and Founder, KLUTCHclub

Thank you, Julie for jumping in. It means a lot when a company takes the time to interact with their customer base, and the ladies here at MuT are a big one for all subscription boxes. 

 

 

I also want to say that I really enjoyed the free yoga download coupon. Those yoga videos are not free, they cost money. Yes they are digital, but you can't (legally and without fear of viruses from torrents) download a quality workout video from just any old site. Just because something is on the internet does not mean it is a free product. The moving comfort coupons were also a valuable item for me, though I returned everything I purchased because I didn't read how the sizing worked lol.

I got a shipment notification, I wonder if the July boxes are shipping early? Dont they usually ship the last week of the month?

I think they were shipping around the 15th but I can't remember. They posted a picture of it on facebook. Looks good, but I'm not subscribed anymore.

 The Think thin bars with caramel and chocolate are so good.  I can't get enough of them, although you can't find them everywhere, and I prefer to not buy online  because of the minimum purchase for free shipping. I hate paying shipping.  I know you can get them at Whole Foods.  Always looking for discount, free shipping codes.

 I purchased KC from a deal on Dealcandy (2) boxes for $20.  I just wanted to check it out before subbing.  I haven't received the boxes yet. Hoping for the best.   I also bought a Mystery box from Consious box, so I can see if I like it before subbing;  they claimed that the box would be stuffed beyond capacity, overflowing.  When I received the box, I was horrified and underwhelmed.  They sent (6) products, that wasn't worth the money I spent.  The box was far from overflowing.  you could shake it and items were moving.  I wrote them about it and they offered to send a make up box.  So I accepted.  I received the box and it contained a "full-sized" box of wheat pasta, (5) pieces of choclate the size of a quarter and a skin balm.  I mean really?  The thing is, some people who purchsed the MB received like 20 plus items and alot of us didn't.  There were alot of upset people on FB;  even the make-up boxes were lame.  SO I wouldn't go with CS, the deception was real!  I highly recommend Eco-Emi.  Reasonable priced, great presentation, include card that lists products you received and box is always full, great variety and great CS.  I always look forward to getting that box.
