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 Health, 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 third weeist of my Pnut people
and the true middle child of the family who demands to be treated as the baby of the family
wants me to get started on the review…
Squeakette gets straight to work!
This was my VIP gift. I got to choose between several teas. I like this chamomile tea. It has rose petals in it.
I like my chamomile tea without the bag in it. Well I guess it is not weird you are supposed to take the tea bag out but I usually like to keep the tea bag in to re-infuse.
I note the chamomile which is predominant and the hibiscus which is secondary. I think the rose petals play into to the hibiscus taste because I am not tea expert. I really cannot detect the spearmint but it might be there as a soothing/airy element aftertaste if that makes sense.
This Pomegranate & Red Currant scented candle was on sale as it was a holiday edition and even though I still have a dent in the BBW candles I bought during the holiday season, I could not resist a Grove candle on sale.
I have so many candles that I did not purchase any more BBW candles when they had a recent price drop… maybe if the code wasn’t the discount but an $10 off coupon with the discounted candles I would have taken the plunge.
This smells like a pomegranate candle with a touch of spice. Like a spiced pomegranate (versus spiced apple). This candle would make a nice fall/winter/spring candle.
Not a summer candle.
I would have bought more but I am technically on candle overload.
Squeakette thinks I have too many Zarbee’s Naturals and she could be right. But then she does not know that momma has no sick days and has to keep up with the most mischievous of the squeakers (which is Squeakette of course)!
Squeakette makes up for her mischievous ways by giving the best of cuddles and snuggles.
Sidenote: Our little assistant is so funny she reminds me so much of my late aunt who had so many expressions!
It’s not a nom Squeakette!
I like this. I do suggest you do need to cover this ointment with a bandaid because the ointment smells like rubber? Or something unpleasant the bandaid would cover it up. It also works will in the pain relief department as equal as its conventional counterpart (which does not smell).
Curoxen- the crunchy version of neo.
Just a sidenote, Grove has a lot of neat new products. Grove Collaborative has a resusable cloth coffee filter how nifty is that? If I used my coffee maker I would buy it.
So into instant I blame my parents.
But then I saw this nifty one cup DIY drip coffee thingamajig.
I digress, I love this month’s Grove. Perfect curation by Pnut.
Maybe its because I choose what I want for my box and I love spoilers.
Grove Co = My monthly cleaning motivation.
Because even Amazon Save & Subscribe doesn’t motivate me.
