Totally underwhelming. I bought my wife a three-box gift card for Valentine's Day to try it out, and we completed the online questionnaire that supposedly goes into curating the type of boxes you receive. The first box was cake pops and painting - by far the best of the three, which isn't saying much. The second and third were virtually the same - a card game in both, coupled with a recipe for mixed drinks or pancakes (none of which sounds anything like the "curated" content we expected based on our questionnaires). The discussion questions are pretty generic, and the Spotify playlist you can access for free without the Datebox. I informed their customer service about the non-curated nature of it all and the fact that our last two boxes were basically the same, and got a "sorry" and a shoulder-shrug. Lesson learned. Plenty of better options out there.
Datebox seems fun at first...until you try to cancel or have some other issue. We canceled our subscription, and we had a screen shot to prove that we canceled, but they still sent us another box. We gave them our proof of cancellation but they would not reimburse us.
