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.

I was really mad because i have no dishwasher or carpets so two items were very very useless

I kinda hate being the one to complain, but at least they are refunding people. It seems like they'd be better off doing it across the board maybe..? Some people may not complain but may just choose to not purchase anymore boxes. But I guess there probably are some people who are happy.

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!

 

It looks like they have another holiday box "coming soon" but when I click on "Notify me" there's jno box to check to be notified yet.

I also received a refund, though I was not expecting it! I sort of feel bad, because I really just had emailed them to suggest they maintain their themes better.

I also complained and they are giving me a refund. I thought there would be more candles with a holiday theme or some decor items for the home. I was so disappointed that it was all cleaning items. Well im getting a refund so no more complaining ha ha. 

I look forward to the coffee lovers and the next holiday one :)

I ended up sending a polite email explaining my disappointment in the box. When I hear "holiday spruce up", doing a load of laundry doesn't come to mind. I think the part that bothered me the most was including items that go on an assumption that everyone has a dishwasher or everyone has carpeted floors. I have no dishwasher and my floors are hardwood, so right off the bat, half the box is useless. I was expecting cleaning products or some new scrubby thing, not what was sent.

 

I hope the coffee lover's box is better.

I am getting a refund also! I was totally expecting candles or maybe a nice room spray in a holiday scent. Not "free" samples that I can get anywhere. What a dud...

I didnt even think of candles but that would have been amazing, i think some of you girls would make better curators then the ones who did this box! I was hoping for maybe holiday scented fabreeze, maybe dish detergent (lots of dishes for the holiday) a swiffer pad with maybe a cupon for a swiffer. etc. things that really are useful for cleaning during the holiday. i agree these free sample things are the same as going to the brands site and requesting them for free.

1 tide pod
1 febreeze set and refresh
1 Oxy clean dish washing booster
1 Bissel stain lifting pad
And a $1 coupon for mean green cleaner and a $2 coupon for biz

Thanks so much for the spoiler.  Can't believe this is worth $13 in their eyes!! I definitely will be requesting a refund when I receive my box.  I still haven't received items from the Thanksgiving box!!  What is going on with Cravebox?

Well said!  It seems this is happening with alot of subs.  They're really great in the beginning and then slowly go down hill.  I mean really!!!  You should definintely request a refund.  You should'nt pay for something if you're disappointed and they didn't meet your expectation.  If they won't refund you, try the credit card co.  But it seems they're cooperating on that front.

Really/  I never received a notification about that box.  Just as well.  I need to take a break from them and subs in general.

I know funny, my idea of holiday spruce up is decorating not taking a stain out of the carpet or doing dishes ha ha :)

post #45 of 49

Or at least some FUN and novel cleaning...come on now! At least the summer spruce up box, while still not exciting, had the cool foaming glass cleaner...this is just bad. I should be a curator.

This box was even worth than expected. The OxiClean is nice, but this just does not scream holiday spruce up to me at all. It screams laundry day.

We have a dishwasher but it already does a good job. I agree, It was a disappointing box.
post #48 of 49

Did anyone else notice that the majority of products in the box were EXACTLY the same free samples that various websites had offered over the past few months?  The tide pod is almost always available as a free sample, the Febreeze set/refresh was a free sample back during the summer (same exact scent and everything), and the Bissel was a sample (or maybe a rebate, I can't recall) back in the Spring/early Summer.

Tide is also giving away the pods with purchase right now.
