My wife purchased an annual membership at $95 per quarter, or ~$400 a year. I checked in over the course of the year to redeem my credits and get gift boxes, and at the end of the calendar year to make sure I had used up my credits.
In all, I received 2 sample boxes, and alcohol worth $162.97. Flaviar charged for another quarter on my Gift account, which I stopped, and they fully canceled my account.
When I asked about the remaining unused value in my account, they apologized for the "inconvenience".
This is a very opaque, heavily hyped product/service which ultimately creates very little value, particularly for the loved ones who think they are buying something special.
This leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This certainly isn’t the experience we want you to have and we apologize for the inconvenience caused.
We’re so sorry if there was any miscommunication around the time your membership was canceled. All unclaimed membership benefits expire along with the membership, but we give members the opportunity to claim outstanding benefits following the cancelation.
We have sent a message to your inbox addressing your concerns and offering redress.
If you need help with anything else, let us know. We’re easy to reach if you write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
