I was recently sent a box I hadn’t yet heard of (shocking, I know!) called Boxtera. Boxtera is a monthly subscription service that delivers healthy, natural snacks – about 25 servings per box! A monthly box that actually delivers a months worth of snacks.. Why hasn’t anyone else thought of this yet?!
When you think about it, most of the snack programs I’ve tried have been around $20 and offer about a weeks worth of snacks (assuming you eat one snack a day like me). Does that seem right? Boxtera is definitely more expensive – $30-$35 per box (plus shipping if you’re only signed on the monthly program), but it’s actually enough snacks to last you through the month. It’s brilliant, really.
If you’re signed on monthly, it is $35 per box plus $5 shipping. If you’re signed on for 6 months at a time, it’s $32 per box, free shipping. If you’re signed on for 12 months at a time, it’s $30, free shipping. SO, if you are going to give it a try, I highly recommend going for 6 months at a time – you save $8 a month! And going up to 12 months saves you an additional $2 a month. That’s big bucks for us 20-somethings.
Now let’s get to the good stuff!! I had to include both of these images, because in the first one you can see how tightly everything was packed into the box – super impressive. Once I started pulling things out, I couldn’t figure out how it had fit so nicely before.
