This month Cricut has a premium mystery box. The difference between the premium and regular is price and product. They usually have more cartridges. This one says the value is $175.93.
Sorry for the glare. I had the windows open since it was such a nice day.
Pens in the mystery box.
Contents of box with prices from the Cricut website listed.

Cricut Explore Southwest Pen Set. Value $12.99/$7.79
The total value of this box is $177.93 or $116.73 using current prices. I still think they should use current pricing and not regular price since that is what you would be paying if you bought them from their website. I was super excited to get the pens because I recently bought a Cricut Explore and it uses these pens. I'm still now 100% clear on how to use them with the machine but now I'm prepared. Also exciting was that I didn't have any of these cartridges!
Verdict: If you are into Cricut and don't have a lot of cartridges or supplies the mystery boxes are great deal.
