June Fancy Box

This is the classic Fancy Box. It contains random items that they feel you would like. You tell them what kind items you like such as shirt size, what kind of devices you have and what categories of stuff you like. You can also fill in miscellaneous info you think would be helpful. I told them I love traveling, gadgets, cooking, baking, I'm a blogger, love anything that has to do with Marines or law enforcement and things like that.  The Fancy box is $39.00 plus $7.95 shipping.

This subscription is available worldwide and ships from Devens, Massachusetts.

The good:

Sizes: You get full size food items!

Information: They include a nice card with the product information and picture.     

The not so good:

Skip: There is no option to skip a month, only cancel. 

Price: The price is a little high - unless of course it has great products and a high value.

Here are the little information cards that come in the box.

Fancy box.

Contents of The Fancy Box with approximate retail price listed: 

Lomography Fisheye Baby 110 camera. Value = $59.00

Lomography 110 color film. Value = $13.00

Leroy Grannis Surf Photography book. Value = $14.99

Very Fancy T-shirt by Baron Von Fancy. Value = $28.00 - This shirt is ok but I'm not a fan of huge designs on the front of shirts. Plus I expected something a little more....fancy

Kikkerland birch biodegradable paper straws. Value = $8.00 - We use straws all the time. I actually have stainless straws because I don't like throwing away plastic ones. These are biodegradable so I'm cool with these.

coupon for $50 off Lunargrand shoes. (the shoes are $250!) 

The total value of this fancy box is $122.99. This box has a terrific value but I'm not at all excited about it. I was so perplexed on why I was sent these items I emailed the company. I couldn't figure out what in my profile would make them send a surfing book and a coupon for men's shoes. I wasn't sure why I got the camera either but then I figured it was because I checked the gadget box. The camera is neat because it takes fisheye pics but I'm not sure I will use it. I have a very nice digital camera and my iPhone which so far have been just fine. Inside the box on the invoice was a return label but I didn't know if these boxes were returnable. I contacted Fancy and they confirmed the boxes aren't returnable but because I was so dissatisfied she could either exchange an item or offer me a gift card. She also recommended only selecting 2 categories instead of 3 but the system makes you pick 3. She said IT is working on that issue. I opted for the gift card, canceled this subscription and signed up for the Coco Rocha box. I think because of the way the billing works though I will still be getting this box in July.

Verdict. Canceled for now and replaced it with Coco Rocha but I may re-sign up later.
