MeowBox

meowbox-review

Meowbox is a themed subscription box devoted to treats, toys, and other goodies specifically for cats. Each Meowbox contains 4-6 items handpicked to intrigue and excite your feline and brought to your door. Every box is different but subscribers can expect to save 20%-30% off retail prices and still get high-quality goods. The first box is shipped on the next business day, while all subsequent boxes ship on the 15th of each month.

Pricing & What’s Included

Meowbox comes with two subscription options: monthly and bi-monthly. Subscribers answer a few questions about their cat’s name and age and a box of the 4 of the most popular items ships on the next business day.

Each box comes with its own surprise theme and is filled with items that have been carefully researched by Meowbox to be unique and high-quality. Treats are high quality, sometimes local, and made with natural ingredients that are nutritious, grain free, and tasty.

Monthly Subscription

4 - 6 Items

$22.95

Every Other Subscription

4 - 6 Items

$22.95

The contents of the monthly and every other month boxes are still 4-6 items, and the price per box is the same. The only difference between the two is how often the subscriber will receive a box.

All plans will automatically renew themselves prior to shipping, but they can be canceled anytime. One thing that makes Meowbox unique is that for every Meowbox that is purchased, a can of cat food is donated to a cat in a shelter.

There are three gift options available from Meowbox: 1 Month, 3 Months, and 6 Months. They each include 4-6 items and come with free shipping.

Gift certificates are available and can be claimed on the Meowbox website. Each gift option is perfect for one or more cats in a household. Gift subscriptions do not automatically renew and are only available to customers in the US and Canada. There is no extra fee for customs fees or duties.

Popular items featured in boxes are also available for sale in the Meowbox Shop on their website. Here you’ll find an assortment of items from previous Meowboxes, and occasionally new, and human, items as well.

Boxes can be customized to exclude edible items for cats that have dietary restrictions, and substituted with surprise toys and other goodies. Most boxes also come customized with a hand-written note on the inside of the box.

Meowbox Review

Subscribers seem to most appreciate the hand-written note on the inside of the box, and that there is usually one item geared towards the pet parent inside the box as well. Meowbox has a 4.7 out of 5 stars on their Facebook page with a total of 242 reviews posted. Over 200 of those reviews are 5 stars.

Meowbox has also been rated highly on unboxing sites such as My Subscription Addiction, where the author notes that it is common for cat boxes to be low in value, which is not the norm at Meowbox.

The themes for each box are often what is mentioned in written reviews online, however, one fault is that Meowbox does not offer an option for households with multiple cats. Previous themes include space, Aloha, camping, and Halloween.

Another flaw mentioned was that although Meowbox has created its own brand of toys to offer in its subscription boxes, those toys are often manufactured in Asia and lack the handmade quality that subscribers had hoped for.

Meowbox is very active on social media where it addresses concerns of customer and subscribers in a timely manner. Unlike other subscription services, there are few issues reported by subscribers regarding billing or shipping.

Many unboxing sites offer coupons for a limited time that offer subscribers up to 10% off of a Meowbox.

When Does It Ship?

The first Meowbox comes on the next business day while the following Meowboxes ship on the 15th of each month, or the next business day. In order to get the first box shipped on the next business day, you must order by 11:59 PM PT.
