No More Cravebox?????

I just got this email from Cravebox saying as of today they are no longer in business.  What the heck happened? Did they not know about this before? As far as I know no one knew about this possibility. 

Well bye bye Cravebox. We had some good times together and I will miss you.

  1. At least they told you and refunded your money. In Canada we had a company called GLYMM just abruptly stop service one month then shut down without issuing refunds. Clients had to do credit card disputes. The same thing is happening right now with GlossyBox Canada.

    1. oh wow! That would irritate me. Wonder why both those companies are doing that to Canadians? I looked today and so far they have refunded me $14.00 which would be one box. I had ordered the cooking light series so maybe they are going to refund one at a time x3.

  2. This was kinda sudden. I kinda just glanced over the e-mail and thought it was just going to be announcing new Craveboxes since there haven't been any in awhile. So I just deleted the e-mail without really reading it. But this sucks, first Dumplingbox, now this? They were both doing good,at least I thought they were.

    3. I know I thought I saw an email a couple of weeks ago that said they were going to announce a new box.

  3. I just recently signed up for Cravebox! That's disappointing, they seemed like they had nice boxes.

    1. They did have some decent boxes in my opinion. I only got one where I was disappointed enough to email them. (the value was half of what I paid and it wasn't specialty items0

  4. I was sad and surprised to read that email also and enjoyed & reviewed several of their boxes on my blog. Maybe if they had increased the price and/or did more advertising they would have survived. I know their referral process was a pain, it should have been a link like most companies and just being entered into a drawing for a free box as a result wasn't enough motivation for many to refer as a result. Referrals is what businesses rely on these days.

    1. The referral process was a pain but the boxes overall were pretty good. It's just so sudden.
