I recently redeemed an offer on Facebook to try Bulu Box for free. Bulu Box is a monthly subscription box that is marketed as “the best way to discover vitamin, supplement and health products.” The offer required signing up for a subscription, but the subscription could be cancelled at any time. I signed up to try the box, it was free after all!
I got the May 2013 Bulu Box this past week. I am not impressed. Here is what came in the box and how much each of those items are worth:
A sample of 2 NeoCell Beauty Bursts in Super Fruit Punch. A 60 count bag of these NeoCell Beauty Bursts is available on drugstore.com for $11.39. The sample in the Bulu Box is worth approximately $0.38.
A packet of FitMixer Amino drink supplement in Fruit Punch. A canister of 35 servings of this amino acid supplement is available on the FitMixer website for $26.99. This makes the single serving sample in the Bulu Box worth approximately $0.77.
A sample of 4 Plantivia AllerDX seasonal allergy relief capsules. A 60 count bottle of Plantivia AllerDX costs $21.95 on the Plantivia website. This makes the 4 capsule sample in the Bulu Box worth approximately $1.46.
The verdict: The total value of the items in my May 2013 Bulu Box was approximately $5.88. Not a bad value if you get it for free, but if you are a paying customer this is a rip-off. The normal price of the Bulu Box is $10 per month. I would expect that the contents of the box would at least equal the cost, if not exceed it. Bulu Box is not worth the money! I cancelled my subscription after receiving the free box. No money lost on this subscription service!
