Today I had the opportunity to stop by the offices of a Bay Area start-up that promotes deals of up to 70% off organic and eco-friendly products called Blissmo. They recently started a new service called BlissmoBox which offers consumers a hand-selected box of certified organic and eco-friendly products once a month. Subscribers have the choice between three or more boxes which might be snacks, home cleaning products or even intimate goods. While there I got my hands on their June offering of a “Food & Beverage” box.
As you all know, I’m a sucker for a good deal and enjoy knowing how good of a deal a got so it’s great that each box comes with an insert that describes each product and it’s retail value. Normally Blissmo sells these boxes for $19 each (plus $3 shipping).
This box included Kaia Foods Granola ($6.99), Kaia Foods Fruit Leather ($1.89), Clif Bar ($2.78), La Yapa Quinoa ($6.09), Alter Eco Cane Sugar ($4.99), Numi Organic Tea ($6.99), Sambazon Energy Drink ($2.49) and a Pu-erh tea sample. The grand total is a $32.22 retail value that you can get shipped to you for $22 (unless you sign up for 3 or 6 months and then you get free shipping). And some boxes you save even more. But what if you could get all of this for only $3?
I think you know the answer to that question from the title of this post. If you go to http://www.blissmobox.com/friend/ and sign up using my email address (alannaface at gmail.com) you will get your first box for only the price of shipping which is a whopping $3. They change the offerings each month but currently the options for your first box are a Blissful Beauty box, a Teas and Tastes box (this is the one I got!) and a Night Lovin’ box. The last one includes vegan condoms. Yeah. I didn’t know they made those either. It also includes a candle that melts at body temperature and so it’s basically massage oil. Ask yourself, would you pay $3 for a box of tea? If so, it’s worth it.
In other months they’ve offered boxes like the one above with home care products that are all eco-friendly or organic. Also, if you decide you don’t like any of the choices in a given month you can ask them to stall your delivery and either get two choices the following month or push your box deliveries out by a month.
These boxes can also be sent as gifts to loved ones or friends (know a bachelor or bachelorette for that Night Lovin’ box?) and you can cancel the service at any time. Christmas is about 90 days away and I hear they’ve got some Christmas cheer up their sleeves at Blissmo. So go. Sign up and use alannaface at gmail.com as your referral email. $3. What are you waiting for? Let me know if you sign up and what you think!
I’m writing about these boxes because I think they’re pretty fantastic and I signed up for the service but in the interest of full disclosure that June box was free to myself and a friend to split.
