I do that too :) I got 2 free October crates and I have one to a friend for her birthday because she loves stranger things. I must prefer to give the items to friends. I got a few crappy items in the past like TMNT shredder glasses which I have to a charity shop.
Mine were roughly 40-60% off. Was a Groupon at 5 or 6 months for half price. Crate one came in, I was disappointed. Then the fallout crate came in, it was ok but still poor. The other 4 went straight on to "who wants what before it goes on eBay." I believe I made my money back on the items I sold. Was the other year.
Maybe it’s just me but I’ve usually gotten my crates on time and it’s the crate I pay for never an old leftover stock crate. So if I paid for the ant man box I’m ggonna get the ant man box. I’ll keep you guys update when I get it next month or August considering we missed the July 20-30 delivery window
Also it is a Monthly Subscription and you can cancel straight away and they will only send you one month. I've done that with a few discount codes in the past when i've only wanted one crate.
Just checked my email and it says that the free crate will ship in August but doesn't say which one it will be.
