September Escape Monthly - Puerto Rico

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.

Price: The price of the box is listed at $49.95/month. but they frequently are offered at $39.95/month. No option to skip.

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.

Puerto Rico Escape Monthly Box. 

Contents of box with retail value:

Moon San Juan, Vieques & Culebra Travel Guide. Value = $16.99

Mi Madre Natural Hot Sauce. Value = $2.99

Dulzura Borincana's Coconut-Pineapple Candy. Value = $5.00 - These are good, not outstanding but good. 

Caribbean Vela Coco Candle. Value = $5.00

Coqui Pins. Value = $9.00

El Isleno Plantain Chips. Value = $3.00 - Again, these are tasty but not spectacular. 

4 oz. Yaucono Café Puro Puerto Rican Coffee. Value = $1.88


Authenic Puerto Rican Souvenir - wooden mortar and pestle. Value = $7.00

The total approximate value of this box is $50.86. The prices they list add up to $50 but I have a hard time believing that. I've been to Puerto Rico and the things like the hot sauce, frog pin and little wooden souvenir you can get for far less than they listed is the pamphlet.

Verdict: This box was very disappointing, I expected way more out of this box for the price.
