August Loot Crate shipments went out recently, and I was excited to see what was inside the mystery box of goodies this month. They didn't disappoint.
The nerdy product subscription service just celebrated one year of business, and it's been a good year. Thousands of subscribers get little black boxes each month and eagerly rip into them to discover goodies. They decided to use the game Portal as the big theme for this month, but there are a few more surprises too.
Yes, even the boxes are awesome.
Look, loot! So much loot!
Here's what was stuffed into the box: an Aperture Science lanyard, bracelet, and temp tattoo, Jelly Bellys, one of Funko's The Walking Dead figure blind boxes, a comfy t-shirt from Shirt.Woot! featuring caffeine molecules (ah, sweet nectar), and a coupon for $5 off at Shirt.Woot! And it's less than $20/month for everything!
I've heard from more than one person that it looks like a cool idea, but that they don't have room for any more stuff. I completely understand running out of space, but keep in mind you can also save toys for gifts and stickers are handy to have around when you're mailing notes to friends.
