Cravebox - Spring Cleaning

Cravebox isn't a monthly subscription service they just send of boxes of really cool stuff if you are lucky enough to get picked.  Here's how it works.  Sign up on their website to be notified when a box becomes available they will send you an email telling you the drawing is open and what the price of the box will be.  If you choose to enter you will get an email about a week later telling you if you've been chosen or not.  They don't tell you what's in the box, just the theme of the box.

This is the Spring Cleaning Cravebox and it was priced at $13.00. I was lucky enough to get this for free since I was randomly selected in their referral program.

These boxes are available in the US only and ship from Aurora, Colorado.

The good:

Themed Boxes: While you don't know what exactly is coming in your box you know the general theme and the price it will be.

The price: I don't think.  It ranges from $10-$18 but they always tell you what it will be before you enter.

Referral program: If someone lists your user name as a referral you earn points which may get you a free box.  Also it's retroactive meaning you can add someones user name even if you signed up months ago.  I wish it were clickable link but it's very cool none the less. My user name is pixiepower.

The not so good:

I can't think of anything.

Looks like lots of fun goodies in this box!

Contents of box with approximate retail value listed:

Woolite At-Home Dry Cleaning cloths. Value = $9.99

Disposer Care freshener. Value = $4.69

Disposer Care Cleaner. Value = $3.99

4 oz. can of Sprayway Glass Cleaner. Value = $2.49

2 packs of Gain Fireworks laundry scent booster. Value = $0.25/ea.?? I couldn't find a size or info on this but I would say it's worth about a quarter.

Coupon for a free bottle of Spot Shot. Value = $5.99

The total value of the Spring Cleaning box is $27.65. The big value item is the dry cleaning product. I actually think I will really like this. I don't have a lot of things that need to be dry cleaned but when they do it's a pain to have to take it in. Also I've noticed dry cleaners charge more for women's clothes than they do for men's which is bull-loney. I'm very happy with the disposer care products. A lot of times I put dawn and or lemons in there to wash it out but this seems simpler. I hope it works just as well.  I've use the glass cleaner before I like it. I use it on my car windows all the time. I also use the spot shot regularly as well so a free can of this is great for me. I'm confused by the gain product. It's labeled as a scent booster - well isn't your detergent suppose to do that? Why would I need an extra product to make my laundry smell good? I'll give it a try anyway though cause why not?

Verdict: I thought this box was great since it had products I will use.
