July KlutchCLUB Box via Bestowed

I still don't really know how the KLUTCHClub or Bestowed merger works. I received an email from KLUTHClub saying they were acquired by Bestowed Box and nothing would change except the boxes would arrive in Bestowed boxes and emails would come from I went to the KLUTCHClub website and it appears nothing has changed  and you can still subscribe. I also checked out the Bestowed site and that's the same also. So I guess all that is changed is the boxes will be curated by Heather Bauer of Bestowed and the name on the boxes and billing are different. I wonder if the items in the Bestowed box are different than this?

KLUTHClub monthly subscription service that focuses on health & fitness.  KLUTCHClub ships their boxes out on the 15th of every month. They advertise that the boxes contain over $50 worth of products or services such as snacks, new workouts or body care regimens to try.  I've a had a few months where the value was lower than the $50 promised but still higher than the price of the box. I don't count gift certificates or coupons that require out of pocket money in order to use them. KLUTCHClub offers three types subscriptions, one for women and one for men and now one for moms.  KLUTCHClub allows you to sign up monthly, quarterly or yearly. The monthly price is $18 a month, quarterly is $51.00 or $17 a month and the yearly is $192 or $16 a month.  Shipping is included in all of these prices. I had found a deal back in July of 2013 where I was able to purchase a year for $144 bringing it down to $12 a box.

This subscription is available in the US.

The good:

Healthy: This box is totally dedicated to health and fitness. If you're just starting to get active this is a fun way to try new products or fitness regimens. 

Need a gift: Have a health nut friend or want to encourage someone? Send them a month, 3 month or yearly subscription.

Information: They send a little info sheet on the products included in the box. 

The not so good:

Skip a month: No skipping a month option.

Value: They promise a value of $50 in each box but they don't send that in product. Sometimes they send gift cards and I think they count those towards the value.

June KlutchClub Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

Energy Fruits Crushed Fruit Mango w/Apple &  Pear. Value = $1.67

.5 oz. Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Value = $1.20

Saffron Road Crunchy Wasabi Chickpeas. Value = $5.19 - I'm not a fan of chickpeas but these were really good. The wasabi was spicy but surprisingly addicting. 

Zevia Ginger Ale. Value = $1.00

Zing Bar in double nut brownie. Value = $3.49 - not bad for a midday snack.

Aquatowel. Value = $0.50

(2) Runa Cinnamon Lemongress Tea bags. Value = $0.31/ea.

Yoga Downloand 1 free month. Value = $10.00

The total value of this box is $22.67 or $32.67 if you include the yoga download. This box had a lot of food items which I like. I was surprised I liked the chickpeas. I'm liking this Saffron Road brand of food quite a lot. The aquatowels are nice to keep in my gym bag just in case I'm not going straight home afterwards. The Runa tea smells really good. I've received this brand before in other boxes but not the cinnamon flavor. I think I'm going to like it. 

Verdict: I'm still a little confused by the merger but I was happy with the box.

  1. Weird, this was the same as my Bestowed box. I wonder if they're sending out the same box for both subscriptions now? I know it was bestowed because I never subscribed to klutch and had 3 months of bestowed.

    1. good to know. It's so confusing because they come in the same box. I think this was my last month of KlutchClub and I know I'm getting the August Bestowed Box.

  2. Cool box! I've actually never heard of health/fitness boxes before! Would it also be possible to review Vain Pursuits? I'd love to hear what you have to say abt them!

    1. I've never heard of Vain Pursuits. I'll mosey on over to their website and check them out.
