GENERAL INFO


What is a subscription box?

Subscription boxes are great! Sign up once and receive awesome stuff every other month without any hassle. Once you sign up, your spot is secured. Your banking card will automatically be charged every other month and you can count on new goodies arriving in the mail.

What is the Book Boyfriend Box?

Book Boyfriend Box is a bi-monthly curated subscription box delivering the best new YA books and fangirl feels right to your door. We love a good character-driven story with a swoon worthy cast and want to celebrate our favorites while meeting some new ones on the way. We also believe that book mail is the best mail, and strive to deliver that joy to you. Each box contains a hardcover copy of a recently released YA novel along with some other bookish goodies and presents!

What will be in the box?

Each box will include a new novel that has been released within 45 days of the box shipping. Additionally, expect 2-6 other high quality, themed goodies, ranging from make-up, candles, jewelry, bookmarks, to T-shirts. Only 2 items, you say?! Don't fret! The lesser the items, the bigger they are! We want every month to be a surprise and something new. Additionally, 1-5 subscribers at random will receive a bonus premium item as a thank you from us.

What does bi-monthly mean? How does this work?

Bi-monthly means you receive a box every other month. They are cost friendly and fun. Our boxes ship out per the following schedule: February, April, June, August, October, and December. We ship out between the 9th-15th on each of those months. For example, if you want to receive the October box, you'll need to subscribe between September-October 10th, before we ship out. Follow our social media in order to stay up to date on announcements and join our book discussions!

When will my subscription renew?

Your subscription will renew every other month on the 25th. Your first box will be shipped before your subscription renews.  You will also receive a notification the day before renewal to the email associated with your account. You can also look up your renewal month by logging into your account. We do not refund subscriptions that have successfully renewed so make sure to cancel or skip on time!

How much does it cost?

The nice thing about subscription boxes is that you're getting awesome items for less than retail value, and the bi-monthly platform is particularly cost friendly! You can prepay for a whole year for $161.99, which comes out to only $13.50 per month. Our plans start at $29.99 (+ shipping) and only get cheaper from there! Prepay for more savings and discounts!

What if I want to skip a box/renewal?

No problem! We understand. Skipping a renewal allows you to keep your subscription spot secure but skip over a box without any fees or penalties. If you are on a box to box plan, simply log into your account. Once logged in, you will be on your account overview page. To the left will be a box titled "Your Subscriptions." Click the edit button in the box. At the top of the new "Edit Your Subscription" page, click the button titled "Skip Renewal." You will not be charged for the box you want to skip.

SHIPPING


Where are you located? Do you ship internationally?

We are located in the USA, and yes, of course we ship internationally! The more, the merrier!

When will my package ship? When can I expect it to arrive?

We ship out our boxes between the 9th-15th of our scheduled months using USPS. If you are located in the US, you can expect your package to arrive between 2-5 business days, and you will be provided with a tracking order. Delivery time largely depends on where you are located. Our international orders usually arrive within 1-3 weeks. Please note that some countries have different shipping times than others, and we make no guarantees on delivery times on international orders.

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping is based on location! Here are our current shipping rates:


  • USA: USPS Priority Rate. Calculated at checkout.
  • US Outlying Islands: $10.99
  • Canada: $14.99
  • Everywhere Else: $25.00

International subscribers are responsible for any customs fees or taxes that may have been incurred according to their country's laws and regulations.

What if my package never arrives? Or is damaged?

Unfortunately, once a box reaches the post office, they are no longer in our control and become the responsibility of USPS. Since we only have so many boxes, we don't guarantee a replacement or a refund. However, shoot us an email at contact@bookboyfriendbox.com, and we will see what we can do.
