They're not "giving them away"

They're offering the first at a discount and using this as a hook to get you to sign up as a permanent member, whilst making it fiddly to get out of the service.

Which is the same dodgy business model that has existed forever.

I've used them before and it was very easy cancelling the subscription.

And easy to forget too. They don't allow you to cancel straight away which is sharp practice.

This is cleverly worded to deceive the consumer (note: use of word after).
"You are free to cancel or pause your boxes any time online after your trial box."

Companies that use these tricks are shameful.

Well I mean you can't cancel it before your Trial box, otherwise you'd never have signed up.
So from what I can tell, you're just buying a box of spices, which isn't very clear anywhere. At least the hello fresh send you all the ingredients. Cold from me

correct. the only difference being Hello Fresh costs at least £20 and that's with 50% off.
from the comments above, you can get this for a £1 using the supplied codes.

I got a free trial with hello fresh, paid nothing for 5 days worth of food, was a pretty amazing offer and was a lovely treat with the boyfriend, loved the ease of it,tried things I wouldn't have tried, would i pay £20 for it? Maybe, I would definitely consider it. Is it overpriced at £20? Yeah but so are takeaways.

I mean let's be honest, everyone can follow a recipe, everyone can pick up the ingredients for a new recipe, everyone has access to new recipes either through the internet or cook books or whatever. The point of these boxes is taking out all the inconvenience of doing that and having it delivered straight to your door, no thought, no effort, just cook. Sending someone a recipe card and some spices and then you STILL have to go to the shop to pick up ingredients? Might as well have just went to the shop in the first place! Poor value in my opinion.

My problem with it is that everything in the marketing suggests that you're getting an entire meal (or 4 days worth of meals) for £3 delivered. You're not, you're getting spices. It's misleading. I just wanted to point that out to anyone who may have glossed over it.

oh lucky! never managed to get it for free, I got 50% off.
i thought hello fresh was good! even for £20 for 5 days worth of food for me and the missus it was convenient, would of spent more going shopping, so the value was there for the trial.

I wouldn't pay full price mind, which can be more than £40.

I think the idea behind this box is to give you an opportunity to try more recipes, most of the time I wouldn't think to try these things as we don't have books, nor have the desire to get some.

it's each to their own really though, someone will find good use of this out there and that what my intention was - to help someone.
give some inspiration and hopefully make dinners more exciting!

sorry, image below.
it does state "flavours" and that you need 4-6 items from your fridge.

it doesnt state you get a whole meal

I agree this offer is poorly worded, and you can get them for £1 a box with a referral. But, our family of five loves these. They work brilliantly with the way we cook, giving inspiring ideas and the flavours to go with them. The Korma for example is the best I've had outside a restaurant. Blows ANY premade sauce away.
If you like cooking but just want some fresh ideas, I encourage you to try them.
