What the Hell Did I Just Buy? Loot Crate

I gave into peer pressure a few months back. After hemming and hawing, asking people about their subscriptions and visiting their booth at who knows how many conventions…I signed on with  Loot Crate.

True to their word, once a month of the past several months, a small black box has arrived with my name on the label and joyous loot inside. I’ve now received several t-shirts, many tiny action figures, an Attack on Titan magnet and (my favorite)  special monthly themed pinback buttons with that particular month’s logo emblazoned on it. For roughly $15 a month, I have received 40$+ worth of geeky stuff.

Loot Crate knows their audience and they cater to them specifically. Come on, how many times have you bought a small box with a toy inside that is wrapped, secretive and unknown. Or how many times did you buy a pack of Magic: The Gathering Cards without knowing what’s inside.

Not all of Loot Crates will be to your liking. For example, I was madly in love with their Dragon based box, but turned up my nose at their Transformers collection. Some of my friend were confused by the Adventurers box but loved every second of the Space collection. What I have learned however, is that whatever I don’t seem to want, someone else is drooling over.  A week ago I was able to give a Minecraft keychain to a friend for helping me move. She almost wept in joy.

Their customer service has always been spot on for me as well. They haven’t overwhelmed me with emails, but have made sure that every month I know what the theme is and if a t-shirt is included, they give me the option to change my size. Packages range from buying just one month, to buying a full six months at one go.

Every month, it feels like a small nerdy fairy has dropped to my doorstep with a new crate of geeky joy. While it is an added expense to my tight budget, it is an expense I have enjoyed tremendously.

Interested in checking them out? Try this link: http://mbsy.co/lootcrate/2459043   (oh and next month’s crate theme is Villains!)

*Legal Note, I was not paid by Loot Crate, asked to write anything, or given anything free. I’m just a nerdy girl who bought a subscription out of curiosity and felt it was my duty to report on something lovely.
