August Bro Box

The newest offering in the subscription box game is BroBox. BroBox is a monthly box. This box caters to the bro demographic sending the coolest products from awesome brands & expert craftsmen. The price of the box is $14.95 with shipping included. Each month they send code to take a survey on the box. If you take the survey you will get a code for $3 off the next months box. This will bring the box price to $11.99. I don't know how long they will be including the survey discount but I'll take it. 

The good:

Not recurring: I see this as good and bad. Good because you don't have to worry about canceling and bad because if you want it monthly you have to remember to order it each month

Need a gift: You can send a BroBox to the bro is your life. 

Not just for bros: I noticed the items didn't have to be for men. Woman could use them just as easily

The not so good: 

Price: The price is OK. I think I would like it more at $10 or $12.

Shipping: They ship after the month is over. For instance this box is August but it didn't ship until September 5th. I like to received my boxes in the month they are for. 


This is the box the bro stuff comes in. 

BroBox stuff

Contents of box with approximate retail price: 

1 oz. bag Chipins Sea Salt Chips. Value = $0.66

1 oz. bag Chipins Hot Buffalo Wing chips. Value = $0.66

.5 oz. Turkey Perky Jerky. Value = $1.34

.5 oz. Beef Perky Jerky. Value = $1.34

Accel Recover Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar. Value = $1.99

4 oz. Man Salt Muscle Soak. Value = $2.61

(3) .5 oz. Face Skin Care Ultimate Comfort Shave Cream. Value$1.87/ea.

BroBox Wrist Sweat Band. Value = $1.00

The total value of this BroBox is $15.21. I was super excited to see snacks in this box especially the jerky. We have had this jerky before and really liked it. The boyfriend loves all jerky so he will be happy about this. I can't wait to try the hot buffalo flavor chips. (I'm writing this in the morning and I don't think the chips will go with my coffee) The man salt says it's for men but why can't I use it. It actually has a really strong scent so I would be hard pressed to get the boyfriend to take a bath and use this. I will definitely use it though. The boyfriend uses an electric shaver and doesn't use shave cream. I only shave about once a month since having electrolysis so I might keep one to try and give the other to a friend who uses shave cream. I know the sweat band is kinda silly but I was actually really excited about it. I was working out the other day and kept having to wipe my face. I'm totally going to go 80's style and put this on my wrist during my workouts. 

Verdict: The value even with the price paid. I really liked the items in this months box.
