What if I receive the book in the subscription box service, I have already read?

What if I receive the book in the subscription box service, I have already read?

We understand your disappointment about receiving duplicate books from a book subscription service. The reality of this situation is that here at The Purple Box we plan our boxes 3+ months in advance of shipping. This includes selecting the book, choosing the theme, and finding the wonderful small businesses to work with on that box (some of whom require many months to create their product).

Given the fact that we finalize our book pick early on, we create multiple options for you to select from. We create multiple basket, and in a way we have listed total 106 Books, till today for our subscription services. The choice of our books remains constant throughout all the boxes, this is something that is completely out of our control. With every box aiming to send out the best books being published, it is likely that if there is a highly anticipated title coming out, you might have pick it as your favorite read.

One very special thing that sets The Purple Box apart from other book boxes, is the fact that we customize the box according to your personal need. This means that the book you receive in your Purple box is a limited edition, curated for you. Beginning in May 2019, we are also planning on including signed books as often as possible. So even if you receive the same book somewhere else, it will be a different edition. We hope this helps ease any initial disappointment! We are always striving towards making the items in our boxes extra unique, and this definitely includes our book selection! 

We are so incredibly grateful for all for the support of all of our subscribers. It means a lot to us that you choose to subscribe to The Purple Box!
