"$125 min value in every box"

I am a big fan of 12society. (My BF and I both signed up so we received the male and the female version – not much of a difference).

You can see my review and pics of the first 12 society box here: http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2012/07/12-society-subscription-box-review-june.html

They are still working out some of the kinks of a new business (shipping delays) but even with those issues the boxes are well worth the value.

SAW AN AD FOR 12SOCIETY FOR THE FIRST BOX AND THOUGHT WOW WHAT A GREAT DEAL TO SUBSCRIBE TO FOR MY SON. WE RECEIVED BOX 2 ABOUT 10 DAYS AGO AND WHAT A LET DOWN IT WAS. THE ITEMS DID NOT EVEN GET CLOSE TO THE PROMISED VALUE OF $125. THE VALUE WAS MORE LIKE $65. HORRIBLE PRODUCTS.
WHAT WE GOT:
$5 SUNGLASSES, $40 MODERN WARFARE EARBUDS (ONLY NICE THING IN BOX), $10 RUBBER TEMPO SPEAKER FOR IPHONE, & $10 ENERGY STRIPS. MOSTLY USELESS JUNK. GIVING HEM ONE MORE CHANCE THEN CANCELLING.

Hah…box 3 blows donkey shit. Like seriously, if you thought box 2 was bad. This is beyond worst. More like just return your box and cancel subscriptions …how do they try to get you to believe that 12society made shirts would cost 35 bucks each? Seriously a let down. Box 3 is not even worth 125 nor even 30 ESP when anyone can mass produce their products and put any price tag on them when it only cost 5 bucks per a shirt made in China.

Hah so this is the truth. Subscriptionboxes.com you rock..i hope this everyone read this blog and find the real review on sub scription boxes such as 12society.

Anyways on to my review of the Box 4 for 12 society I decided to give this game one more chance… This one is supposing hand picked Blake Griffin exclusive. First thing i noticed..The presentation. great..just like a typical 12society box. I like there is no booklet this time and more of a table of contents. Funny thing is its about the MSRP about all the products in this box. How can you have an MSRP on something that doesn’t sell out on public. Instead most of the shit that was in the box was Branded 12Society. lol..again as i look through this junk. I find a canvas art work of Blake. Is this suppose to be rare or something? hell you should have just given me a blank canvas and some paint. Next is a mini baseball bat. ok. but stupid product. another 12societ sweater oh joy. another crap clothing you can buy wholesale from Hanes, lastly a 12society IPHONE 4/4S Case!!! Oh shit !! I have an Iphone 5.. FUCK! again useless. items. Hell, im not going to break it down this time. as the products are worth less than 40 bucks and you can just pay some chinese kid in china and have em print all your logos on materials for a couple of bucks. Again, another box full of junk with random MSRP from the company that distributes the items.. next month.. just have all the celebrities print their faces on white t shirts and claim its worth more than $125. Thats it. completely done with this junk. I visit this blog quite often. Lmk what you think and some recomendations on new subscription boxes.

Thanks!
Ray

Have to agree with the most recent review. I signed up for the first time to receive box #4 and it was full of useless junk. $125 MSRP my ass! Like the previous guy said, you can’t just print your logo on cheap hoodies, iphone cases, etc. and then make up an expensive price. This box is completely worthless and I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I’m also trying to send mine back, but can’t get anyone with the company to reply to my emails. What a waste of $40.

I have received two 12 Society boxes. They were deceitful in they had said that they were also creating female boxes. The female box for the last 2 months is identical to the mens! There is only one thing in this box that I would ever use and that is the little Louisville Slugger baseball bat. As other have stated they do not respond to postings. I feel like I have waited at least three quarters of the money that I have spent on their boses.

False Advertisement. The website clearly used to say that we would receive a minimum of $125+ worth of “amazing products”. I wouldn’t pay $100 for boxes 3 and 4 combined. So far this has been terrible and i have been trying to return both boxes and have yet to receive a return shipping label. Why would I pay for promotional items like a 12Society shirt or Hoodie?! The point should be to send legit items so that i promote it to friends or they see me with new cool things and i can tell them about it. So far, 12Society has been brutal and nothing but hype and disappointment.

Now the website has changed twice in the past week. It went from $125+ worth of amazing products to $85+ worth of hand picked limited edition items. To now it just says Limited Edition and “best of” products. The only thing they have been great at was the advertising for cool things. Horrible follow through.

HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! They ask gender to supposedly create a box for your gender, but I hardly consider a men’s sweatshirt, bat, and creepy canvas painting of blake “female-friendly” items. And everything had 12 society logo on it.. seriously? They will never get my business again.

I am a member since box 1 It is now December 10th No Box Yet I was charged on the 15th of November really? Now instead of a $125 value it now says $85 maybe they have no way of getting these boxes put together in a timely manner because it has only gotten worse.Yes 70% of what you get is fluff China CRAP.

Horrible. Glad I cancelled after a couple months, and got my money back for the 3rd (which was box 4). Don’t subscribe unless you like overpaying for items with 12Society logos. I wish I could give less than 1 star.

I purchased 2 gift subscriptions (for my son & brother) only received 1 box but was charged for 2. The products were CRAP and well worth under $85! I’ve left numerous voice messages and sent countless emails and no one has responded to me about my missing box. Needless to say after this I will be filing a complaint with BBB and contacting my credit card company for my money back. You have been warned! I wish I could give this company 1/2 a star, and that would be kind. I am so disappointed!

Honestly such a terrible box. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS. I got this as a gift, a three month subscription (box: 4,5,6) and it was just pure garbage. The box is so terrible I just had to write a review to express my dissatisfaction with this company.

1. The CEO in this interview in this inerview, http://upstart.bizjournals.com/companies/rebel-brands/2012/06/13/sameer-mehta-launches-12society.html?page=all , expressed that the company did not want to give “sample” type products yet every box I received had sample like products or useless products that I would just never use. (IE: a mini bat???, what am I supposed to do with that?)

2. The company promises that you will receive $120+ worth of items but I have calculated every box and it never nears that amount. Box 6 just gives you a bunch of dollar items from Gatorade, items that Gatorade would probably just give you for free as promotional items. (Note: I tried to look at the site to fact check the $120+ and it seems that they even took that down!)

3. Every box I received with any type of clothing always had a 12society brand which then the company would value their items like they were some designer items marked at $45 plus. Also EVERY clothing item/accessory I received had problems with them.
A. Sweatshirt I received had a terrible screen print
B. Another sweatshirt I received had a big brown stain on it and of course and it was white and visible.
C. A watch with a strap that immediately after the first wear.
D. A dress shirt which they sent the wrong size
C. The only thing they got right was the tie and how can you ever mess that up???

4. The shipping was absolutely terrible. I never received my box in any sort of timely manner and by the time I received my box, a lot of subscribers post the items in the box completely ruining the surprise. This is partially my fault because I am always looking online to see whats in the box because I never receive mine in time! Sometimes other subscribers have had the box up to two weeks longer before I received mine.

5. I have a HUGE problem with a small company like this taking money from subscribers and then throwing a huge party in Los Angeles. This 12.12.12 party that 12society had probably cost them a lot of money, money that they could have used to make a better box. Its suspect that box six, THE WORST BOX EVER, was the same month of the 12Society party. Sorry im more interested in a company and people that work as at a company to build a brand first rather than waste money on partying with celebrities.

6. The only great thing about the company is they have great presentation, i’ll give them that. I don’t know how these athletes have their names attached to this company. It is such a great idea and partially why I subscribed to the box in the first place, but honestly the management of this company has done a bad job delivering a good product. The also seem to lack imagination as well as a good sales team but worst of all are the buyers of these products placed in these boxes. With all the star power behind this, you would think that 12society would have some leverage to persuade companies to provide stellar products in these boxes that would serve as excellent advertisement to them. Provide some sort of analytics to these companies its really not that hard, show some muscle and go after what you really want instead of providing a half-assed product. I can’t imagine even half of 12 society’s subscribers will continue for an entire year with this company

Great idea but terrible execution.

As I am writing this review, box 7 (December ’12) box was due to ship on the 28th of December. This has not yet occurred. I decided to do my best to be fair prior to submitting a review. That time has now passed, I am 2 boxes in and awaiting my third box. Since I signed up in September after researching and reviewing various reviews on the service I thought “Nice”. Great advertising, Great upsell, and what better than a host of Celebrities as the face of the company!!

Sadly to say, I signed up during a time where things began to become inconsistent. I follow 12society on Facebook and Twitter to keep an eye on new developments as they may arise. My first month (Sept ’12) received in October (Box 5 – “The Look”) was very late! I found myself constantly checking the website for tracking information only to find that there was no tracking info. I reached out and sent an email to receive a newly posted 30% off of my first month after having recently signed up…Needless to say I never received the discount and communication is frustrating.

My email to the company, which became two email’s (one regarding unpausing an accidentally paused month) went unanswered for 11 days. I called the customer service number during business hours, lol that was a joke!! (I work in Customer Service) this was not an effective means of communication. Moreso someone’s personal answering machine that no one ever answers in real time. Moving on since I have joined both of my boxes (The Look and The Active) received in November and December were well beyond late (over 15 days).

To add insult to injury the 12society decided to send tracking information for the box received last month that indicated that the box would be shipped on Dec’ 7th. This was an attempt to appease impatient subscribers as witnessed on Twitter. The tracking information did not update for 6 days, Christmas was around the corner for a box that should have shipped on the 28th as advertised. The company makes no attempts to inform you that boxes will be late. I can say that they did discount my first two boxes knocking my price to $31.20 instead of the monthly $39.

Realistically, being a subscriber is a headache waiting to happen. This company in my short 3 months (Did I mention that I am waiting on a box now, that should have mailed on the 28th of December?) has never been on time with shipping. You have to harass them on Twitter to get a response (When they feel like it). There seems to be some marketing scam on Twitter to blanket the negative feedback with I just signed up for 12society posts to lighten the true situation. 12society sucks, the active box was filled with things that I happened to stumble upon at my local “Marshall’s” discount department store.

I’m not disgruntled by any means, I just don’t like to be taken for a fool. They say that when you know better, you do better. For me the best thing to do is cancel or pause my subscription until one of the Celebrities takes over and takes charge of making 12society “Reputable and Dependable”. Personally, I suggest that you check the Twitter @12society and Facebook pages to review for yourself the various feedback prior to signing up. (Note: The frustration on the sites are real, shipping is definitely an issue) Don’t be surprised if you send an email and or call and while you’re waiting you see posts for contests or questions about some sports game currently occurring as you wait for a reply. It’s just that insulting.

Lastly, I see a lot of the celebrities of 12society included in posts regarding the companies inconsistent everything. Surprisingly there has been no turn around regarding any of the things that would reinstate your confidence in such a branding type scheme. Eh? Maybe my expectations are unrealistic (Thinking…) Nope!! I am also a subscriber of LootCrate (gaming geek subscription of Awesomeness) and their communication is on point (NO MATTER WHAT) so yea, 12society should take notes from LootCrate. They’re in the same area. Just sad, really, really, sad.

I guess i could say i fell for the advertisement that stars would pick the products that they as famous they are would actually use products like the ones 12society sent. I got box 8 if im correct. First shipping was bad, they did sent me a tracking order but it took six days to even show that it was accented by FEDEX, then it was almost 2 weeks to arrive, a total of 3 full weeks to receive it from there promise shipping on the 28th of the month. Next the promise it that the box will value $85+ and the products i got were a Paul Mitchell shampoo that it cost $13,a crew shaving gel worth $8, a travel pedi and mani set with no name on it (NOT EVEN IF ITS MADE IN CHINA) looks like you can buy at a dollar store. and a bathroom set that like the other not even a made in china marking. So in total i would say $35 worth in this box . what a disappointing. Called that same day to cancel.
