Also, given the hints on the fb page, it looks like oxyclean may be in it.

1 tide pod
1 febreeze set and refresh
1 Oxy clean dish washing booster

And a $1 coupon for mean green cleaner and a $2 coupon for biz

Thanks for that spoiler!  Man that box DOES suck!  I'm actually rather annoyed, especially since I was disappointed by the Thanksgiving box.  Definitely my last Cravebox.  My money will go elsewhere!

post #12 of 49

I generally like Cravebox, since I only opt in for the themes I think I will like.  I was really hoping for some fall/winter-y stuff in this one, or at least something to make holiday cleaning a little more fun.  I must say I'm not at all impressed with this box (I got mine this morning) and I don't feel it was worth the cost.   icon_neutral.gif   Hopefully this isn't a new trend with them...

That totally sucks! I'm getting the coffee one and if I'm not blown away - it's that last one I'll get. It used to be Soooo Good. Now they are just one disappointment after another. So glad I didn't get that one!

Not looking forward to this at all... Guess I am done with Cravebox! 

post #15 of 49

That is like $8 worth of stuff including the coupons

Where's the holiday? More importantly, where's the fun? Craveboxes used to be so fun. I loved them & raved about them on my blog all the time. Each box seems to drop in value.

Oh man, I'm kinda glad I got the Thanksgiving box, even with the green beans (and not chosen for the holiday spruce up box) even though I disliked half the items in the Thanksgiving box, at least there was chocolate and frosting and biscuits!  I really liked the looks of the Summer spruce up box and I use the heck out of Bar Keepers Secret to clean my stainless pots and pans, so I thought the holiday one would be just as great. 


Febreze set and refreshes are usually free or only $1 with coupons at the grocery store and one Tide Pod?  I've received more than one pod as a sample numerous times.  I don't have a dishwasher and can't find mean green in any stores near me (although I see coupons for it all the time).  I would have been bummed as well.

on the plus side my house smells nice from the scented item. I was sure something was missing from the box. but I guess not

Yeah, I just don't understand what happened! Literally every box has been terrible, low value, and just boring for a few months now!

post #20 of 49

I still havent even got mine i am not even looking forward to it any more =\

post #21 of 49

I have a feeling I'm getting this box instead of the coffee box....uh. I got a bunch of Tide pods from my Orgullosa/Vocalpoint party already plus samples. They need to change the name of the Cravebox to, 'Hit or Miss!'

man this box sucks i was looking forward to it but no more what a load of crap!
post #23 of 49

Wow, it looks like so many people are upset about this one that they have been doing some refunding, at least based on the responses to this (on Facebook):

They sure didn't take good care of the people that received the Tasty Favorites box which is another one that was valued at less than we paid. I refuse to participate in the childish lotteries anymore with CraveBox after the Tasty Favorites box. Many, many people complained about that one due to the low value and all we received was "sorry you didn't like it, you may cancel if you wish." So, I canceled with no regrets.

Wow, definitely seems like a let down box. I haven't even been checking tracking because it's not really worth being excited for. My first box (Dog Lovers) was AWESOME and had a great value. The beauty one was mediocre, but I liked the products enough that it was worth it. This one seems like junk and under value and the coffee one is my next one coming, so I'm hoping that one is great. If not, I think I'll wait until the second dog lovers then just stop. This box just seems like something went missing along route?

On this box I was glad I looked at the spoilers so that I would be prepared, but I have to say I just opened my box and seeing it all in person makes it so much worse.  I really thought I had gone through my disappointment/regret after first peaking at the contents, but the disappointment/regret is starting all over again.  I know the Thanksgiving box was kinda a reach, but the coupon for the cards/stationary made it fine with me.  This one not even close.  Thank goodness my Glossybox arrived at the same time!

post #27 of 49

I e-mailed them!  I wasn't rude or obnoxious, I just stated plainly that I was disappointed with the Thanksgiving box already and that the Holiday box seemed like a waste of money.  I told them that I wanted to continue purchasing Cravebox, but that they need to go back to what has worked for them in the past - more quality boxes with a variety of items.  I ended with "Please give us something to 'Crave'!"  I don't know if I'll get a refund but at least I'm adding my voice of annoyance about this box.

 

I noticed that they have a "teen" box coming soon and for some reason I'm really curious about this one.. if they get their act together I might try to get that one!

post #28 of 49

I emailed and got a response from the CEO that i will receive a refund. so i am a little less disappointed.

post #29 of 49

I got the same refund message from the CEO.. though it's definitely a canned message that they're sending out to everyone who complains since there's obviously a LOT of complaints, I really do hope they learn from this box.. I want to get more boxes!

post #30 of 49
I am so happy that they are refunding people who complain. I went ahead and sent them a nice email about how dissapointed I was.
