November Robb Vices Box

Robb Vices is a monthly subscription box focused on exceptional products, food, accessories, etc. Each box is curated and comes with a booklet that tells the story of the items in the box. This box is for those who enjoy the finer things and appreciate the history or story behind it. I only say that because this box is not inexpensive. The price is $89.95 per month plus shipping. I subscribe to the Robb Report magazine and very much enjoy reading it. If you subscribe to the magazine they offer a discount on the box. I researched previous boxes and liked what I saw so I subscribed.

Price: $89.95 per month plus shipping w/discounts for 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.

The Good:

Products: The products are high end, artisan and great quality. 

Information: The include booklet is a wealth of information on the products. 

Referral Program: Refer 3 friends and get a free box. 

Alcohol: Sometimes they include alcohol which I'm a big fan of. 

The Not So Good:

Price: The price is high for a monthly box of surprise items.

Auto-Renew. I don't care much for auto-renew especially on a box with a high price tag. 

November Robb Vices Box

Contents of the Robb Vices Box:

Groth Wines Cabernet Sauvignon. Value = $59.99

Sempli Vaso-Vino Decanter. Value = $50.00

Urbani Stringozzi Pasta. Value = $9.00

Lark Fine Foods Salted Rosemary Shortbread Cookies. Value = $6.00

Artstar $100 Gift Card. Value = $0

New York Prime Beef $125 off. Value = $0

The total value of this box is about $124.99. I very rarely include the price of gift cards and discount codes because they usually require and out of pocket expense. I searched the website of both Artstar and New York Prime Beef and while you can save a lot you still have a minimum out of pocket expense of $25. 

I was very excited about the other items in the box. The first thing I noticed was the Groth wine. I'm a fan of this wine and the winery is within a couple hours of my house. The next thing I noticed was the decanter which matches the wine classes that came in a previous box. I love it! I'm also familiar with the Urbani and Lark cookies and was super happy to see those in the box. I can't wait to try the pasta. 

Verdict: This Robb Vices box was a win for me. I will use all the tangible items in the box and probably order a few steaks also.
