Subscription Box Insanity: Holiday Petbox (Dec. ’14)

Happy Holidays from Wednesday!

Happy Holidays from Wednesday!

Happy Paw-lidays!!

Back in October, I reviewed a special, limited edition Petbox that I ordered on it’s own because it supported the movement against domestic violence and abuse. Buy with purpose, my friends!

Petbox also put out a limited edition, holiday box and had a deal where if you gifted it, you got additional points that you could use to add items to the box. So I gifted it to Wednesday and what arrived was a smorgasbord of toys, treats, and pet necessities!

Can’t wait to dig in!

See my other Petbox reviews here.

THE DETAILSPetbox caters to both dogs and cats (and even, possibly, other pets like pigs based on a line I read on their site). They do not currently ship outside of the U.S. and a single box from the deluxe plan (2-3 items a box) will run you $19.95 a month (includes shipping). Groupon recently had a deal, so I picked up the three-month deluxe subscription for $32.99 total- i.e. $10.99 a month. One difference with Petbox is that you can be surprised every month or you can hand-pick your items, so there seems to be quite a bit of flexibility. Especially for those of you with both dogs and cats since you can mix items for both pets in one box. Also, for each box shipped they donate a meal to a rescue animal; there is a place on their site for rescue organizations to sign up to be partners.

This limited edition, holiday box cost $29.95.

PETBOX REVIEW

Petbox is here!

Petbox is here!

First look: We've fed a hungry pet!

First look: We’ve fed a hungry pet!

Petbox’s packaging does a great job of reminding you that your purchase has also done some good for a homeless pet.

First Look - Brimming with Goodies!

First Look – Brimming with Goodies!

Here’s the first look. I can see at least seven items in there! Wow! Wednesday is going to be a very lucky dog on Christmas morning.

Pride Bites Sneaker Toy

Pride Bites Sneaker Toy

The first item I pull out is this “Hip Sneaker” toy by PrideBites. It has a retail value of $9.99.

Happy Howie's Lamb Sausages

Happy Howie’s Lamb Sausages

The very first item I pull out is much needed. It is a five-pack of made-in-the-USA Happy Howie’s lamb sausages. I already know these will get devoured so will be holding on to these for special occasions. The retail value is $6.49.

Earth Rated Poop Bags

Earth Rated Poop Bags

Well W does poop a lot. So another set of bags will ensure we don’t have to go buy any for awhile. These are by Earth Rated, are lavender scented (not a fan of scented bags but I’ll deal), and are compostable/made out of recycled materials. This is two months worth and has a retail value of $6.99.

TropiClean Oral Care Water Additive

Tropiclean Oral Care Water Additive

This Tropiclean Fresh Breath Oral Care Water Additive is a nice surprise. W could use some breath freshening so hopefully she will take to having this in her water. It has a retail value of $6.93.

Happy Howie's Natural Dog Treats

Happy Howie’s Natural Dog Treats

This is a sampler of more of Happy Howie’s offerings. One looks like their Mini Beef Dog Burger Treat. Estimated retail value is about $1.38.

Copper's Classics Beef Ear

Copper’s Classics Beef Ear

This is also a a sample size of Copper’s Classics Beef Ears. Estimated retail value on this is about $1.08.

Sadie's Sweet Pawtato Chips Sample

Sadie’s Sweet Pawtato Chips Sample

These Sadie’s Sweet Pawtato Chips (sample size) will probably be eaten up in a flash; W loves sweet potato! Retail value is maybe $1.

Jolly Pets Romp-n-Roll

Jolly Pets Romp-n-Roll

Next up is Jolly Pets Romp-n-Roll toy. We have a similar toy rolling around the house so we’ll save this for when that one wears out. It has a retail value of $6.99.

Old Mother Hubbard Jingle Jangle Treats

Old Mother Hubbard Jingle Jangle Treats

More treats! I think we are set for the rest of the year on treats! These are by Old Mother Hubbard and are their Jingle Jangle P-Nuttier variety. They retail for $1.27.

ZippyPaws Santa Claus Toy

ZippyPaws Santa Claus Toy

Last but not least is the big guy himself! This is a really cute ZippyPaws Santa Claus toy. We may keep it around for awhile so that he doesn’t get destroyed too quickly. ‘Tis the season, after all!  I found it online for $9.99.

Wow, well W definitely raked it in this season! This box alone has a grand total value of $52.11. Considering I paid $29.95 for it, that’s a pretty good value. I felt like I also received great value for their last limited edition box so I’m thinking that’s the way to go when it comes to Petbox.

Wishing you all a magical season filled with joy, cheer, and light!
