Quarterly.co Subscriptions

I definitely agree that some are just...  a waste.  I'm hoping that Rachel Yeomans will be good because of her connections and I think it will be.  

 

But, yeah.  You definitely have to watch out for the crappy ones.  They are definitely there.

 

I read a review for Bill Nyes and it was only worth $25.  It had cool things in it but not $50 worth of items :(

I just got my first Food52 box and I really like it.  It isn't high dollar value (but more than the $50 it cost), but the items are lovely.

I just signed up for Book Riot, 1000 Places, Rachel Yeomans, and Bekka Palmer on top of Nina Garcia. I'm a little nervous about RY and BP. I just don't know what to expect, even though I researched them. I keep hovering over the cancel button.

Quarterly is sort of the bain of my wallets existence. I'm up to 5. Rachel Yeomans, both book riot, 1000 places and quarterly's travel and adventure. The last should be here soon. Though I'm sure it will be awful after the last two would have been super useful.

I've been thinking about the 1000 places... but fear we will get a calendar in there.  I dont need a calendar as I have been there and have my own photos (and just dont need a calendar).  That's about $13 of the value (not much) but wouldnt use it.

 

Edit: for some reason, I thought she had a calendar. Maybe it's her publication that has one.  Anyways... just thinking about what would be in there?

I doubt they'll include a calendar mid-year. That wouldn't be very prudent of them.

That was my impression of the Bill Nye box too. Not something I would pay $50 for but certainly it would be fun for a teenager interested in science. 

 

Tina Roth Eisenberg was definitely my worst Quarterly experience. I should've guessed from her previous boxes but since some of them were amazing I just didn't know what to expect.

That's what I like about Quarterly boxes - they actually seem nicely curated even if you're not generally getting a huge return on your investment. Even boxes I dislike are a matter of personal preference since the curator letters are sincere and it's clear that they seemed to put effort into their decisions. The curator letters are one thing I didn't know about before I started my Quarterly subs since they're usually not emphasized in the online reviews, but every one I've seen is nicely written and thoroughly explains the items that the box contains.

And to elaborate on the latter - I actually really liked the letter she included and reading it did explain why I suddenly owned a megaphone. It didn't make up for the fact that I had no use for a megaphone and it would just collect dust but I did appreciate her reasoning. In that case it was definitely a matter of completely opposite personalities.

Thanks for sharing - am super excited! I am also subscribed to Rachel Yeoman, Hitha on the Go and 1000 Places…I will try and post pictures when I receive those boxes :)

I'm excited to see what you get in your Hitha on the Go box.  I have a strong feeling that I know one of the items but I wont say in case someone wants to be surprised (it's from piecing together 2 of her blog posts).  The one item is valued around $63 if I recall correctly.  Think she said her box would be worth $100.  Please do share when you get it.

Does anyone know what kind of shipping service Quarterly uses? Supposedly they shipped mine on 5/7, but I didn't receive any kind of tracking. I think I saw a USPS postage label on boxes on some blogs. Do they use smartpost? (I'm hoping it's faster than that!) Thanks!

They ship via USPS.

 

You get the invoice and the website status says "Shipped" but you won't receive the actual shipment email with tracking for another week. Which box are you waiting on? Is it Hitha on the Go? I got my invoice on the 7th as well but haven't received tracking yet either.

Thanks for the info! I read somewhere that Quarterly only bills once they ship, but I thought it was odd I never got shipping info and  my account still says "ready" under status, not "shipped". I ordered the Kalani one. It's all about personal wellness and growth, yoga, and Hawaiian culture. It sounds soothing. Let's hope! I was going to get the Hiltha box, but she said it was focused on shoes on her blog, and that doesn't do much for me. I'm not a shoe gal.

I think their definition of "Shipped" is something like "We've sent your order on to the warehouse for packaging and shipment". It doesn't actually mean "This has been delivered to the USPS" because there's always a week delay between getting the invoice and getting tracking. 

 

You'll have to say how the Kalani one is!

My box that I was charged for on 5/7 shipped today. I love the excitement of waiting for them while my fingers are crossed hoping they're worth it.

I was looking at the status of my Hitha on the Go box (got my shipping notification today!) and accidentally noticed that a picture of the contents of the box has been posted:

Kind of bummed about being spoiled, but am happy to see that the item I was anticipating is actually in the box :)

They did the same thing with travel and adventure ... irksome but at least I know I won't hate myself when it comes. Though now I'm a little sad I didn't keep my sub for Hitha

Hmmm... I am a little relieved, I think (I didn't order and not regretting the decision). Looks nice but the May TravelBox included a similar, but far less fancy, packing-related item from Flight 001 (being vague so as to no spoil it for those who didn't click the link). I can't tell what the other thing in the picture is though...

That "packing related thing" (love the wording) is exactly what I thought was being sent (and I did get them to add me after it closed).  I cannot see what anything else would be though.  That item is around $63 retail. The box is supposed to be $100.

I've been trying to figure out what that other item is in the Hitha on the Go box. The big item was $68 on the web, and I think I figured out the other little box in the photo and it only retails for $16, falling short of the $100 value, IMO, since I don't really count the other stuff in the box as having much "value." Looks like there's a 20% off coupon, which I do not count--I'm sure you can find a 20% promo code with a google search, although I could be wrong... Still using a coupon means spending more money anyway and to me that's more of a marketing/advertising tool for the store. The other item is her shoe packing tips card that you can easily access for free on her website.

 

Again, I didn't get the box. I was just super curious and so I'm going by the photo posted on the quarterly.co website.

I can't figure anything out besides the large item. I hope the packing tips doesn't have a value.  And the discount certainly shouldn't count towards a value.  Somehow, I am feeling that these things contribute to the $100 "value" though.  I am getting it - but won't come for another week or so. I wanted that large priced item.

and yes, the 20% is for anyone. I got one this week searching for their site.  Don't need this box for that.  Shouldn't count towards "value"

    • Actually, people always spend plenty of time to remove makeup, have your ever tried the fast way to do that. If you never see, just look at here, a ultrasonic facial device has a powerful function to remove makeup effectively and quickly. 😘
    • wow, so cool! It is wonderful skin care tips. Love it!!!
    • Hi, I use anti-aging serum from anahitaonlinestore.com. It works really great for me. I use it after cleaning and before applying my daycream. I guess everybody has to find what really works for them.
    • I've recently become more and more invested in makeup but the only problem is I can't get my make up to apply smoothly, especially over my nose. I've tried using a motorised and have a good cleansing routine for my face but when eve I try to put my foundation on it becomes all caky around my nose (I use bare minerals powder) Can anybody suggest anything to stop tis happening. 
    • This seems to be true of Damien. We have completely stopped traveling somewhere far since we got cats. There are three of them now. We made a special backyard house for them - https://thepetsmaster.com/best-outdoor-cat-houses/ They can live there for several days if we leave for a short while. However, one of us always stays at home during the holidays. This is our price as the owner of wonderful cats.
