June Escape Monthly - Las Vegas

Escape Monthly combines two things I love which are traveling and getting treasures in the mail. Escape Monthly ships every month and includes full size products, travel guides, secret tips and special offers. Each box has a destination theme and every month one lucky member will win a vacation to the destination.  The price of this box is $49.95 a month with shipping included. Right now they are running a deal on their website where you can get 20% off the price of the box for life. This means the monthly box will cost $39.95 a month instead of $49.95.

This box is available in the US only and ships from Lake Oswego, Oregon. 

The good:

Products: You get full size products from the region of that month. 

Referrals: They have an ambassador program that pays you via paypal for members you refer. 

Travel: They give away a trip every month to the destination. There is a card in one box each month telling you if you've won. 

Info cards: These are so important and theirs is fantastic. It includes product info and price as well as info about the destination. I have noticed that the prices they list is not always accurate. 

The not so good:

Skip: So far I can't find anything on skipping.  

Price: The price is quite high for a monthly box.


Las Vegas Escape Monthly Box. 


Contents of box with retail value:

Moon Travel Guide, Nevada. Value = $19.99

Tahoe Nevada Toffee. Value = $15.00

Iadoora Charcoal Salt Body Scrub. Value = $15.99

Las Vegas Shot Glass. Value = $3.95

Authentic Clipped Casino Playing Cards. Value = $4.99

3 Girls Holistic Calming Mist Body Spray. Value = $12.00

Vegas Wine Stopper. Value = $5.39

Bonus:

Vegas Nail File. Value = $1.25

The total value of this box is $78.56 or $58.57 if you don't include the travel book. I don't know what I was expecting from the box but it seems a little dull. When I think of Vegas I think of shows, food and cocktails. There are so many fantastic restaurants in Vegas we have an ongoing list of places to try. Living in California Vegas is just a short airplane ride away so we go every couple of years. I will probably flip through this travel guide because the state of Nevada is just a couple of hours drive and there is lots of cool places to check out. The shot glass is ok but we have several Vegas shot glasses already, same for the playing cards. The wine stopper is actually really pretty in person. The toffee is from Lake Tahoe which is only 2 hours from our house. There are lots of little shops in the Truckee/Tahoe area that are fun to check out. I'm starting to see charcoal salt scrub popping up, must be the new thing for the season.

Verdict: I wasn't super excited about the Vegas box. Next month is India.

  1. Your shot glass is much cuter than the one I got, but like you we already have several Vegas shot glasses. I was expecting more from a Las Vegas box, so was a little disappointed too. Hope next month's box is better!
