Hi. I'm trying to post Spoilers for Hitha on the go. Still getting used to the new site, so if you don't want to see spoilers, please skip. :)

Is it really $100?  or did she count the "coupon codes" as part of the value? If she did, that would be pretty bad.

When you click on the reply to this topic box, the third icon from the top left is "Special BBCode". Click Special BBCode and select spoiler from the pull down menu. It's basically what tanyamib said but done automatically...

Hi Mishmash

 

So i apologize, but i can't figure out how to actually attach the photos from my phone.    **hangs head in shame**.  I just tried on the computer and i "think" it worked.  I'm sorry to all, I know it shouldnt be this hard, I'm sure I'll get used to it.  In the meantime - thanks for your patience and help with a new MUTer.  :)

 

There was the one large item so someone already referenced, plus one smaller item.  Plus a card with packing tips AND a coupon.  Honestly, I was pretty "meh"     And i would not say that the value was $100.00.    It must be part of the$100.00 value?   to get to $100.00 anyway.

 

 

Test

Ok, I can't seem to get the pictures to attach but click below for the descriptions

 

 

one large zippered shoe bag, one pumice pedi stone for 30 scrubs, shoe packing tips, (which are already avalaible on her site), and a shoe society 20% off coupon.  $100 Value?? I'm don't think so.    As I said, I was petty "meh" when i opened it.  And i travel a lot.

You are correct!  I recieved a different pattern (blue and magenta and a little juvenile for me, I would have preferred the one pictured), but those are the items.  I was definitely disappointed to tell you the truth

I figured the box contents out last Friday but didn't know how to post the spoilers yet. Yeah, this is a little disappointing, isn't it? I really debated on subscribing so I am not disappointed that I skipped it! Blue & magenta does NOT sound appealing to me either... The one pictured on quarterly.co and the website that I linked to are at least pretty!

 

I am also seriously debating the 1000 Places box, but I think I am too chicken without a spoiler, I think. What do we know about it? What's its estimated value or theme? I thought someone somewhere said 

Paris?

You're the best!  Thank you.  I had a feeling her $100 value was inflated after seeing this link of quarterly.  She's probably taking into account the code and her free guide from her site.  Too bad, someone should talk to Quarterly about inflated values. I had a feeling it would be that larger item (hithaonthego.com stated it was her preferred bag) but figured for $100 there must be more (than just the 1 other item).  A bit disappointed (and wouldn't be if she didn't say it was $100 - it builds expectations).

Yeah I also seriously debated subbing to her and am glad I didn't. Also, I am not bothered that the real value is not $100- it's more than $50 and that's all I can really expect I feel from Quarterly boxes BUT it really angers me that they think they can count a coupon and free packing tips toward the value.  Um, no.  If anything (Unless you truly were planning to shop at a website anyway) a coupon to me has negative value since you are spending money you would not otherwise have spent. If it is a coupon for something FREE, I no longer feel that way, but that is obviously not the case here.

Absolutely. And the code is for new customers only.  So anyone who ordered already cannot use it.  I agree re: it being more than $50 - however, I wouldn't have minded if the expectation wasn't already set at $100 value.  The larger item is $64 on their site. That's what I wanted and could have gone into the store and selected a color myself since that's really the main contents of the package.  But I thought we were getting another $35 of items.

I agree--at least the retail value exceeds the amount paid. I probably wouldn't pay $50 for the main item though. And I subscribe to TravelBox and got this in my last box

 

 

Value is only $24 and it's not nearly as fancy but it'll serve its purpose..

I agree!    I went back and forth and figured they would sort of knock it out of the park with the first boxes.  But two items?   (I don't consider the packing tips and coupon to be of value and the second item wasn't really a travel item IMHO).     I sort of signed up on whim for Hitha and 1000 Places.... I'm disappointed with Hitha, and somewhat nervious now for 1000 Places.  From what I have seen on MUT - you are correct with your idea.   But I haven't seen or heard anything else...

 

I think i just may be really spoiled by Nina G's box and some other boxes as well... I think that if I had not subscribed to Nina's to do Hitha and 1000 Places, I'd be pretty upset (right now I'd say I'm just disappointed).

Awww, thanks - there was one other item (see my text spoiler) but I wouldn't consider that to really be travel related.    and it definitely was not an item that would bring it to $100 value.  I agree, I think Quarterly needs to think about the inflation.   For some people, ordering this box (or any box really) means they can't subscribe to a different box.  Or have to cut others ones out.  So, if this was my "one" monthly or Quarterly box, I'd be reaallllly disappointed (or annoyed)

It seems that most of the value is in the one item, the second isn't all that travel related (i think of it more as a beauty item)   I wouldnt mind if t was $50 of really unique items but this is so....."I've seen it before". 

 

I do have a lot of unique items from my travels - maybe i'm just jaded.   :D

You sort of hit the nail on the head for me about travel boxes, in general--when I first saw TravelBox, for example, I was curious but also a little hesitant, worried it'd be more eye masks, earplugs, plug adapters, and/or travel guides to places I don't want to go (and they've had some of that stuff but it's been otherwise kind of interesting... Plus it's only $26 with shipping... I've been happy enough with it.).

 

Anyway that's why I was curious about Hitha on the Go subscription, that it was specifically supposed to be packing-related. It piqued my interest since it had a more specific theme...

Yes that is the correct place for the 1000 places box.

For any ladies who ordered the Hitha box and feel bad about the value, be glad you didn't get the Kalani box...

 

 

It contained a dried flower ($0), a paper bookmark ($0), bead necklace ($5 -$10), USB with a spoken word story recorded on it ($5 for the USB - I looked it up), and a book for $14.95 retail. That's about $25 total. The box description cards were really nicely and thoughtfully written, and I appreciated the reasoning behind each item, but that is clearly no value at all. This was my first Quarterly box, and it may be my last. :(
