Box: Grove Collaborative (this link gives you $10 and me $10 when you sign up)!
Contents: Curated and/or self-selected eco-friendly products such as Cleaning, Laundry, Hand and Body, Face and Hair, Kids, Scent Free, Oral Care, etc. to ship when you want it (monthly and/or on demand)! Some of the Brands carried are Seventh Generation, Acure Organics, Method, Mrs. Meyers, Molly’s Suds, and house brand Grove Collaborative.
Cost: Price of your items (usually discounted) plus $2.99 shipping (waived if you are a VIP member see more details below).
Kick Back and Get Comfortable:
I LOVE the service that Grove Collaborative offers. Every item that I received was either a promotional free item or discounted. I will keep a lookout for more promos and let you know! Most of the products that I bought were not found on discount via my beloved Amazon. Because I wanted to avoid passing Target and paying $200, we would buy our cleaning products on Home Depot (which were not discounted at all).
We all know how I want to save money in the comfort of my own home.
I found signing up was easy. Grove Collaborative asks a few questions and then curates a box for you. You can then feel free to delete and add items as you wish.
There is a $2.99 shipping charge BUT if you sign up for VIP status, the shipping fee is waived! So while you are shopping look into the VIP trial because you receive free shipping for two months and then you pay $19.99 for a year. In addition to VIP status, you will receive freebies amounting to five (5!) full size items within a year so $19.99 pays for itself in (1) free shipping, (2) five full size items and (3) the already discounted savings on items purchased!!! And if you forget to add the VIP trial to your order (like I did) the VIP trial option appears after you place your first order. And then if you forget that, I am sure the awesome customer service will take of you!
Once you make an order you can set up to change when you want your next delivery and what products you want for that delivery. Grove Collaborative will send advance email reminders and a text reminder (if you give your cell) when a monthly box is scheduled so you can make any modifications to that order. Also a week after you sign up, you will be able to “purchase now” if you need something now.
Note on Customer Service:
Not only is customer service awesome, make sure you look under the customer service representative’s signature because there might be a link with a coupon to one of their favorite products. You know me and codes and coupons.
I also was recently sent an email blast from Grove Collaborative with some points that they wanted their customers to be aware of and if you are not happy with a product they will compensate you! How awesome is that!?!
An other awesome plus is that if there is a promo for new customers, Grove Collaborative usually also rewards continuing customers with a promo as well!
Codes and/or Coupons for new and continuing customers = A Happy and Loyal Pnut
Price Matching Deets:
I noticed when I was stalk tracking my Grove Co box one of their advertisements on the tracking page was for the VIP program features. One of the features was “price matching”!
Online Price Matching be still my heart!!!
As always, the second weeist of my Pnut people, Squeakette,
wants me to get started on the review
so let us indulge our little assistant!
Fresh from dinner (and styling her hair with it), Squeakette is ready. Squeak, also done with dinner, wants to assist!
I do not think I mention it but Grove Co ships USPS Priority!
And Grove Co also has new packing tape!
*Squeakers At Work*
This Method Ocean Plastic Dish & Hand Soap was recently added to Grove Co and I wanted to keep the Squeakers interested by switching stuff up on occasion so this fit the bill! I got Sea Minerals because I preferred the blue font over the green font of Sweet Water.
Sea Minerals is a very light watery scent. You will need to put it up close to your nose to smell it so if you do not like smelly soap, this may meet your needs.
Because you do not want to smell sometimes, but need a little something something in the scent department.
First things first is the word “SINKSATIONAL”! Awesome job Full Circle Marketing Department!
I had big plans for this. The plans were 50% successful. I wanted to use the drainer part for my bathtub but it was not compatible unless I had to remove a part. So I guess it could have been successful. Anyways…
This is Pnut’s Sink
(Freshly cleaned just for Subscriptionista’s readers)
This is Pnut’s Sink on Sinksational
(Keep in mind that Marketing probably did not intend for this item to be used backwards)
Like Tim Gunn, I make it work!
This was the other 50% which was successful. I wanted a partial stopper for the garbage disposal with the other piece.
UPDATE: My garbage disposal is now “sinksational!”
So I have a cool (and refillable) hand soap dispenser. Also, I usually want to put hand lotion afterwards but when I thought later than I wanted to do so I did not because my hands felt moisturized already! I am also happy with Sinksational because I wanted something nicer than the traditional protective strainers that washed better.
Grove Co making cleaning products via a monthly subscription box more exciting!
