Amex Offer: Boxed

I had never heard of boxed.com until just a few weeks ago when I was perusing new Amex offers.  One of the perks of owning an American Express credit or charge card is the ability to load various deals to your card that will save you money. With boxed.com, Amex will reimburse $20 off $50+ of your total spend until October 25, 2016.

So what exactly is boxed.com?  It’s basically an online store version of Costco, Sam’s Club, or any other wholesale warehouse.  In their own words, boxed.com sells “the products you love in bulk, delivered to your door.”

 

I did a price comparison of a few personal care and household items my husband and I were running out of.  Usually for everyday household items we would shop at Walmart, Target, and occasionally Amazon.

 

For my first order with boxed.com, I bought Axe shower gel, Cottonelle wipes, and Glad ForceFlex trash bags.  Here are the differences in price:

 

– Axe Phoenix Shower Gel 16 oz, twin pack

Walmart.com: $6.97

boxed.com: $8.99

Winner: Walmart

 

– Cottonelle Fresh Care (wipes)

Walmart.com: $6.97 for 168 sheets (4.2c each)

boxed.com: $19.99 for 504 sheets (4c each)

Winner: boxed.com

 

– Glad ForceFlex Trash Bags 13 gallons

Walmart.com: $15.85 for 100 bags (15.9c each)

boxed.com: $17.99 for 140 bags (13c each)

Winner: boxed.com

 

So in this case, boxed.com beat Walmart prices 2 out of 3.  Not bad!

 

Boxed sent me a coupon via e-mail for free shipping on my first order.  I also found a 15% off code online which I was able to stack up with the free shipping.

 

This is the breakdown of the cost of my first purchase:

  • Axe Shower Gel Phoenix
    2 x 16 oz $8.99
    Qty: 2 $17.98
  • Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths
    9 x 56 Count $19.99
    Qty: 1 $19.99
  • Glad ForceFlex 13 Gallon Tall Kitchen 140 Count
    $17.99
    Qty: 1 $17.99
Subtotal $55.96
Shipping Fee FREE
Promotion Discounts -$8.39
Sales Tax $3.33
ORDER TOTAL $50.90

 

Then, once Amex reimburses $20 off my purchase, the net I will spend is

$50.90-$20=$30.90

What an awesome deal!

 

In my opinion, here are the pros and cons of boxed.com:

 

What I like:

 

– No membership fee

– Super fast delivery:  I placed my order on Wednesday night at 10.22PM, and the box arrived on Friday morning at 9.21AM.

– Earn 1% cash rewards for all your purchases and you can redeem it anytime as long as you have $2.50 in rewards balance

 

 

What I don’t like: 

 

– Selection of products is limited

– Must pay shipping fee if you do not meet minimum order amount

 

If you are an American Express cardholder, check if you are targeted for the boxed.com offer. It doesn’t hurt to replenish stuff that you need around the house at huge savings and without having to leave the house.

 

Interested in saving even more on your first order?  Please allow me to share my invitation code 5VQ8J where you will be able to take an additional $10 off (in return I will get $15 credit after your first delivery).

•Video link on bio• If you love to watch the movie A Christmas Story, you will thoroughly enjoy this short video I’ve put together. This video documents our tour through the house recreating our favorite scenes from the movie and follows us through the museum where actual costumes and props are housed. It was definitely the highlight of my trip to Cleveland!
Last Sunday was the perfect fall day to roam around the forests deep in the heart of South Carolina.
How much have we lost in the name of “progress?” Large portions of the southeastern region of the United States used to be covered with floodplain forests. Overtime trees were cut to build ships, railroads, and various other structures. The floodplains were drained to make way for farms and cities. What little still remains is nowadays protected within entities such as the Congaree National Park.

I was hoping to find some peace and quiet at Berry College’s vast campus. Instead, so many people took advantage of Saturday’s beautiful weather. We saw three quinceanera celebrations, a wedding, and various people doing random photo shoots.
