A friend just pointed out weight loss surgery themed subscription box service, you know — where you sign up to have a selection of samples (I am guessing these are sample sizes based on the photos given on the website that is at the moment very limited…) sent to you each month. For your payment — a flat-fee of $34.95 — you are sent 8 – 12 sample-size products for the bariatric patient.
I can see the niche of people who'd want this. Hi.
I was curious enough to throw my email on their mailing list, but I wonder are free samples worth $4 each? Maybe, I suppose if they have been sourced for you and shipped to you? How long of a commitment is this kind of service? I'm not the kind of person that throws out $34.95 for a box of I Don't Know What's Coming in exchange for grocery money — however — I could be swayed.
Don't think I am picking on this service just because it's "bariatric" I have no clue who's pimping it — I say the same thing about the underpanties boxes — the snack boxes — all boxes — I see them as profit machines for the person behind the curtain. :) I would simply like to know WHY it is worth the cost since some of it is free to the consumer already. Show me.
