Our Hip2Save team gave the viral WiBargain surprise boxes filled with Target returns a try… and here’s how it went! 😬

pulling items out of Wibargain Target return box


Hey, y’all! Angela here! 👋🏼

Ever since the pandemic started I’ve been kinda… sorta… okay A LOT obsessed with TikTok. I find myself scrolling for hours at night when I should be going to sleep.

During my nightly scrolls, I came across quite a few influencers talking about the WiBargain surprise boxes…🤯 From what the videos showed, they were receiving a TON of awesome stuff in their boxes so I thought I’d give it a try! 🤞🏼


When we first published this post, it was based on our true experience which had been overall positive, from both the side of Angela ordering without any Hip2Save affiliation, to Sara receiving a box for free. Our goal was to test out whether or not influencers got better boxes.

In the process, we were able to secure a discount code from WiBargain that we were excited to share with our readers. However, as many have expressed in the comments, the more recent purchase experiences have been nothing like ours.

For that reason, we strongly encourage you all not to order WiBargain boxes at this time.

While we’re unaware of what is causing the hold up in boxes being shipped out, or the delay in responses from the company, we feel it is in your best interest to avoid making purchases through this site until their customer experience is improved.

In the hopes there may be more comments on this post, whether it be from readers with updates on their orders, or from the company directly, we are going to keep this post live for the time being. Though again, we encourage anyone not to order from the WiBargain site at this time.

Thank you for your understanding and we truly hope to see a swift turnaround in the order issues you have all been experiencing.

Since I initially wrote this post, I’ve even convinced my Hip sidekick, Sara, to give this a try too! I mean, who doesn’t love some surprise mail?

Except… CURVEBALL! This time, WiBargain actually knew her box was headed to a Hip2Save team member and that we’d be posting about our experience again. I can barely stand the anticipation to see what she got! 😮

Do you think WiBargain gave her all the TikTok goodies we’ve been seeing from other bloggers? We shall see… 😏

These surprise boxes range in price from $35 all the way up to $175. You can also choose from various categories of boxes including Amazon returns, Target returns, and more.

I decided to go with the $125 Target Premium Returns Box.

From what I had seen from the influencer boxes I was excited to find out what I would end up with. Plus, WiBargain claims that some boxes will include one surprise bonus item that is worth over $100 MSRP.

Sadly I didn’t end up with a surprise bonus item, but there were a few things I did like and will be able to use.

surprise box contents

Here’s what was in my WiBargains Target Premium Returns Surprise Box:

  • 2 Up & Up Drawing Paper 40-Sheets $2.39 per pack = $4.78 value
  • Room Essentials Washcloth 6-Pack $5 value
  • 4 Crayola Finger Paint Soap Tubes $1 each = $4 value
  • Toy Car $1 value
  • Sun Squad 4-Person Picnic Blanket $20 value
  • Vineyard Vines Waterproof Playing Cards $5 value
  • 2 Disney’s Frozen 50-Piece Puzzles $1 each = $2 value (missing pieces)
  • Dr. Seuss Fine Tip Markers $1 value
  • Kellytoy Stuffed Lamb $5 value
  • 2 Mini Christmas Spiral Coloring Books $1 each = $2 value
  • 2 Disney & Friends Board Books $1 each = $2 value
  • 2 Universal Thread Headbands $10 each = $20 value
  • Easter Tree $5
  • iPhone Case – This case had no name brand on it and no UPC so I’m not sure of the value. Oddly enough it is for the original iPhone, yep the super small one. How long have they been holding on to this gem!? 🤣

Total value: $286.69 – $100 (cost of box w/ our exclusive HIP2SAVE discount) = $186.69 worth of “free” items!

egg decorating kit

I must admit, I kind of side-eyed the Easter stuff like the plastic eggs and the egg decorating kits because those items end up going for around 20¢ during the after Easter clearance 90% off sale. Some of the items in my box I also would absolutely not consider to be “premium” items as they were from Target’s BullsEye’s Playground.

But that said, I did have a few faves…

Hearth & hand throw pillow

Out of the box, my favorite items were the picnic blanket, washcloths, food storage containers, and the Hearth & Hand pillow. I also appreciated the sheet set even though I don’t have a dorm size bed as I was able to give it to a young adult I know who’s heading to college this fall!

I’ll be donating all of the toys to a holiday toy drive so they will even be put to good use too.

target threshold curtains

Many people buy these surprise boxes to resell the items on Amazon, eBay, or Facebook Marketplace. I’m not sure if the box I received would really be worth the effort of reselling due to the contents. It seems that the influencers get the reallllllly good stuff (like electronics and expensive beauty tools) and the rest of us mostly end up with random things that may leave a lot to be desired comparatively speaking.

Oh, and the curtain set in my box was covered in shampoo, so those would for sure not be something that could be resold.

So what was in Sara’s surprise box?! I’ll let her tell ya!

Sara here! 👋

I’ll be honest, I was VERY skeptical of WiBargain, but being a frugal, Earth-conscious person I really appreciated that returned items were going to good use somehow!

Regardless, I was anxious to see what WiBargain would send me and I LOVE the idea of getting a box full of surprise goodies! 😍

WiBargain sent me the $125 Target Premium Returns Box, just like Angela’s!

Here’s what was in my WiBargains Target Premium Returns Surprise Box:

Total value: $273.71 – $100 (cost of box w/ our exclusive HIP2SAVE discount) = $173.71 worth of “free” items

Overall I was pleasantly pleased with the items in my box and to my surprise, I didn’t think they packed it full of unrealistic expectations.

Compared to Angela’s box, mine actually retailed for LESS than hers. However, I felt the quality of a few items was slightly better. Mine also seemed to have fewer “fluff” products and more substantial pieces. Nonetheless, I didn’t think the stuff I received was out of the ordinary of what any non-influencer recipient would get, like I initially expected.

Many of my items were practical too!

My favorite thing in my WiBargain box were the string lights! Recently both of my boys asked for some to hang in their shared room, so these couldn’t be more perfect! (And yes, they all worked when I set them up!) 😏

hand holding drawer organizer

There were TONS of other useful products in my box too!

The beautiful spice-colored coverlet set – perfect for transitioning into colder months. The knives set which has been on my wishlist for over a year! The foam bath rug, white towels (you can never have too many with kids), the heating pad, which is something I didn’t already have and I’m sure will come in handy when someone in my family needs it most.

Even the bamboo drawer organizer (which I didn’t think I needed) found its own space in my junk drawer! 😍

woman holding up target products with sad face

By no surprise, there were a few disappointing products, such as the one curtain panel which isn’t my style, but even then, I’d need to buy more to make it work in any of my rooms.

Then there were the size 5 women’s shoes, which are 2 sizes too small for me, and the King size sheets set that won’t fit any beds in my home – so by default, they’re essentially useless in my space.

With that said, they are all still nice products and something I know many other people can use. Plus, I’ll still get a little return on my box if I decide to sell any of the items.

I’ll pass it back to Angela now! 👋

There are so many WiBargain surprise boxes to choose from!

clothing hanger organizer

There are quite a few WiBargain boxes to choose from and if I had extra cash, it might be fun to grab a couple more. There are boxes with returns from Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Lowe’s, and boxes with jewelry, cosmetics, pet items, clothing, shoes, unclaimed mail/packages (yep, that’s a thing!) 🤯, home decor, and more! 😱

Speaking of, did you know that you can buy mail? 

unclaimed mail in bin

I follow a woman on TikTok that goes to her local swapmeet where they sell unclaimed mail for $1 each and she ends up with a ton of gift cards and other fun items. I love her disclaimer on every video “and yes…this is totally legal.” 🤣

The WiBargain unclaimed mail surprise box is priced at $95 for a small box with ten items – that’s a pretty hefty gamble in my opinion, especially compared to the $1 price that people are paying at swap meets. Items can be in any category from home decor, kitchen, electronics, jewelry, clothing, baby and toys, and other general merchandise.

wibargain clothing surprise box

If you’re considering a clothing or shoe box, know that they can vary in size and can include men’s, women’s, or children’s clothing and shoes. From what I’ve seen from the unboxing videos on YouTube, these boxes would be better for a reseller due to the random sizing.

Here’s how to save on your own WiBargain box!

wibargain surprise box toys

While this is quite a splurge for me to buy a box not knowing what is going to be inside, I will say the anticipation and the unboxing is totally fun! If you have a gift closet, this would be great for you – especially if you have a lot of kiddos on your gift list.

Almost all of the items in both mine and Sara’s boxes were in near perfect condition and mostly unopened, with a few exceptions of broken/damaged items like the shampoo-covered curtain panel I already mentioned above.

If you do decide to take the plunge & order your own surprise box from WiBargain, score our exclusive deal:

Honestly, if you have the extra cash it is pretty fun to get a surprise box in the mail, just don’t have any expectations as these can be totally hit or miss!

sofa with target pillows

I will say I’m loving how the Hearth & Hand Pillow looks on my couch! It matches perfectly, even the tassels are the same color as my other pillows. Don’t come for me for being a pillow hoarder, I know I know! It reminds me of that Progressive Insurance commercial where the guy asks the woman where people are supposed to sit due to her couch being filled with pillows. 🤣

Have you purchased one of these surprise boxes? If so, let us know in the comments! 😍

    Where is your couch from?!

    • Monique

      We have a ton of swap meets here in vegas totally wish we had $1 Mail buys I would be way into that 🙂

      • CT

        I dont know if it’s the same lady that she watches, but I’ve definitely seen one who is in Las Vegas!

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hey, Jennifer! It is the Westerfield Gray Sofa from Rooms to Go.

      • Rain

        Lol, I was about to post I have the same couch and LOVE it. It’s not our main couch and it gets pretty squishy ie not firm but we have it in our sitting area and I love it. I wouldn’t want my boys and dogs using it as their daily workhorse couch though.

    • CindyGPalmer

      I was wondering the same thing!

  2. llc

    I’m not on tik too but would be interested to try if I could find out about the swap meets selling unclaimed mail.

  3. Margaux

    Went to the swap meet in Vegas where the Tik Tok girl got her $1 mail items…could not find the booth. We went multiple times too and never any unclaimed mail for sale.

    • Monique

      If you ever run into it let me know 🙂 silverkiss7243 🙂

    • Katie

      That’s because it doesn’t exist!

  4. Amy

    watch tiktok videos that aren’t sponsored about these boxes. people are getting used makeup, glasses stolen from the disney 3d rides. they hype it up to those who sponsor, you’ll get trash most likely.

    • crystal-14

      I was going to say what Amy said. These boxes for most people are just garbage and crap.

  5. Amy

    I noticed in the reviews that the same picture was being used with different text under different boxes. So I googled the company. Very very bad reviews 1 out of 5 stars on the BBB page. 😬 hard pass for me

  6. Emily

    Why sell unclaimed mail, aren’t packages returned to sender if undeliverable?

    • Lana

      Only if the sender is willing to pay for the return shipping, which most aren’t so the post office doesn’t even bother for certain classes of mail. First class and up (priority and express) they will. It it’s media mail, standard shipping, or whatever wish uses, no, they won’t.

      • Gina

        No such thing as unclaimed mail that the PO just gets rid of. EVERYTHING is processed back and it’s very time consuming. Selling “unclaimed” mail is illegal which is probably why people can’t find the lady.

        • Donna

          Exactly, Gina!! I worked for Post Office and you are right …it is illegal to sell unclaimed mail. Hope the Postal Inspection doesn’t find this or maybe they did😉Some of it has been donated to charity at the senders request.

          • Lisa

            I know that states have “unclaimed” property websites (the legit ones, not the ones who are a fraud). I guess my question would be why is a giftcard being resold? Interesting.

        • April Heyboer

          I guess this explains what happened to all of my mail that the neighbor returned to the post office before they knew us after my father-in-law messed up the mail forwarding. The PO just claimed they didn’t have it.

  7. Ris

    I bought a target and amazon box awhile back. Honestly neither were worth the price. The target one I recieved an outdoor mat, a coloring book, a hideous quilt and a box that was suppose to have chapstick in it, but the box was empty. Amazon was a little better. We recieved a inflatable dinosaur costume (which was the best thing in there) and several misc. open items. Most looked like they were spare parts to repair appliances. Definitely would not do it again.

  8. Chantel

    Garbage. Like gambling for shopping addicts. Saving money and getting good deals is exciting but it is also very necessary for many of us. It takes patience and planning. Why would I throw away $125 for a box fully of crap I will have to throw away or donate when I can get Christmas for one of my children(or school clothes) for that amount by being patient and careful? $125 is an oil change, a gas bill, groceries for a week or yearly vaccinations for a pet.

    • Donica2013


    • shannont

      I’m with you 100%!! $125 is a ton of money to just throw away on surprise garbage. Idk maybe people just have more disposable income than I do…

  9. Michele

    These boxes are not worth it. I ordered one from wiBargain and it was trash. Literally unboxed trash bags!!! Nothing valued at over $15 and lots of used/returned items. Don’t waste your money!

  10. Pat

    Sounds like this is a way to scam people.

    • Katie

      It IS a scam

  11. GAmommyof4

    Idea: Give your spouse or best friend $125 and let them shop for you, you’ll still be surprised and you might get some thing that you actually like! Lol

    • Lo

      Lol that sounds fun. Guess that’s what we do at Christmas but with $20. But agree that box was not worth it.

    • RB

    My husband I ordered a Premium Amazon Returns box about two months ago. At first, everything seemed to go well enough. We received our order confirmation and tracking number within their suggested time frame. Unfortunately, our box didn’t ship for over a month and it only finally got shipped because my husband contacted customer service several times via email. When we did receive our ‘Premium Amazon Returns’ box, it was an EPIC FAILURE. Oy. The box definitely appeared to have been pried open on the non-taped sides and not surprisingly wasn’t in the best of shape. The products we received are a joke- the best item being a used but in-box camping grill. We also received a 20 ft hose, loosely stuffed into the box, not neatly wrapped. Other junk items included a UV nail light missing its power cord, a dog/pet pool (no word yet if it actually holds water), an opened box of clear plastic baseball card sleeves, a used rearview mirror for infants (there was sticky stuff all over it even though it was in it’s very damaged box), a balljoint car part with no identifying labels (my husband knew what it was, I was completely stumped), a TARGET item (how the heck did an Amazon box get a Target item?!)- it was a set of two door hangers but one was missing; a FunkoPop in a crushed box (our kiddo loved it even though we have no idea who the character is!), and another item or two that were just such garbage they didn’t even make it into my photo. The experience was fun, even though we ended up with a box of trash. We told ourselves that this would be our one shot at trying this trend and so it shall be! Lol. If you have money to throw away then by all means, have fun! Just don’t expect anything more than used, unsellable items. Hopefully you’ll have better luck than us!

    Are swap meets a regional thing? I’ve lived in the Midwest my whole life and we do garage sales, flea markets, and junk shops in a big way but I now I want to do a subculture deep dive into swap meets…tell me everything, lol.

    • Monique

      I think they are regional pretty common out here in vegas 🙂 sometimes you can find a good deal

    • lenin1991

      Only the term is regional: swap meets and flea markets typically mean the same thing.

    • Katie

      Swap meets and flea mark are the same thing.

  14. Winnie

    If I had $125 I’d rather give it to charity than this company and I won’t be cluttering my house.

    • Katie

      Slam dunk! 🥰🙌🏼👍🏼😂👏🏼

  15. dealzgurl

    I have literally never heard of these boxes so I found the post interesting. Thanks for taking one for the team and giving us your honest review as a regular person and not an influencer. Although I kind of want to see how the boxes would be different if you HAD mentioned H2S, lol. Thanks for all you guys do.

    • RB

      Same here, hadn’t heard of before. Intriguing, but unaffordable (and thinking about moving, so even my own belongings are beginning to feel like a burden to either pack or find a good home for), so I’ll pass.

  16. Lucy

    I would be so disappointed with this… $100 for this junk? Just wait for a sale on the stuff that you actually want. :/

  17. Anne

    Thanks for sharing this!! We appreciate that you guys are ethical and HONEST!! So we can know if this is worth it or not!!

    I would have definitely tried this-so THANK YOU!! For sparing me disappointment!!🤗❤️

  18. LauraL

    Here in the western burbs of Chicago there are a few stores that buy these boxes and then resell the items. They will start out at $7 on the first day and then go down to 1 on the last day of the week. Much better than spending 125 for a box!

    • Andrea

      We have a similar store here in West Michigan but ours starts at $5 an item and then $0.25 on Friday (day before restock). You have to have patience and like to dig though 😆 I have gotten some fantastic items from this store (including $100 light fixtures for $5!). You never know what they will have and is always an adventure as to what you may find. Much better way to go than spending $125 for a “grab bag of garbage”.

      • Erica

        Where is this store in West Michigan?

      • Lisa

        I’m also curious where that store is in West Michigan! 😊

        • Chantillylace85

          In East Michigan, its called the crate store!

        • Hipgrandma

          Me too!

    • Marissa

      What are these stores in the burbs?

  19. Natalie

    I’d rather take the $125 to Kohl’s or somewhere that has amazing clearance sales coupled with coupons- I could get more $ value than this box had in it of stuff I actually want! Knowing me if I bought this box, it would most likely be full of stuff that I don’t love but I’d keep it around just because I paid for it and it would clutter up my house. It’s a no for me. I can see how the “what if” appeal sounds fun tho.

    • mela

      What is the name of the store? I would love to stop. I’m assuming in the Grand Rapids area?

  21. Christy

    No disrespect intended but this seems like expensive clutter. Part of saving money is avoiding spending money on stuff you don’t need. And minimizing excess, so you only have what you truly need/want, and KNOW what you have so you don’t buy more “stuff.”

  22. Heather

    I ordered one Amazon and one Target ‘premium’ box. Both were full of broken JUNK. Even at that totaling the retail pricing would have barely reached the cost of the box. SCAM! Do not waste your money!

    • Katie

      Thanks! I dug around a little more and it Seems like that’s what everyone is saying so I’m not going to waste by money. Some even said it’s literal trash?! Crazy.

    • Alicia

      Did it take forever for u to receive mone was ordered a month ago, they sent the FedEx tracking but it doesn’t track anything

  23. Stephanie Hudgins

    If you aren’t an influencer then you will get junk. I got Home Depot box and got a couple of useful items. I ordered the Bed Bath and Beyond box and they sent me a totally different box with junk in it. Been fighting them for two months to make it right but they just keep passing the buck off to someone else.
    Not worth all the hype that it’s made out to be.

  24. Lana

    This is a scam but hey I can get 20% off with code Hip2save.

    • Gillian

      I was going to say that I was really disappointed that Hip2Save was promoting this by giving a discount code. It looks like junk and is not saving anyone any money.

  25. Mary

    We also have a store nearby in Iowa and he buys pallets of stuff from Target, Kohls, etc. Very popular place! I love to go snoop around and see what goodies he got in for the week. He gets furniture, clothing, appliances, decorations, baby items, lots of lawn furniture. Pretty much anything you can think of.

    • Jody

      I’m in Iowa too! Where are you? What store is this? Never heard of before, but very interested in visiting.

      • Mary

        Hi Jody, His store was in Spirit Lake, IA but he had a fire this summer which destroyed the building. He is currently located in Spencer, IA with hopes to rebuild at some point. I was just in there today, he had several of those mattresses that come in a box, name brand ones. I’m looking for a mattress for my son so I told him I may be back! My brother who lives in a studio apartment with no washing machine found a mini portable clothes washer!

  26. Steph

    The Goodwill Blue Boxes are also a gamble. I have ordered 3 of the clothing boxes and ended up with several stained items and also a few with really bad sewing repairs. Like, dresses that were just ripped in a random spot and then sewn together. It’s basically just a way for them to get rid of the stuff no one buys. Don’t do it!!

  27. Cara

    If you live in an area with a Fast Track/bidfta, they auction off items from Sam’s Club, Home Depot, etc. The one in Pueblo, CO often has sales where you can just come in and buy the items without going through the auction process or paying the auction fees. You can score really nice items without having to wonder if you’re getting junk.

  28. Kay

    I completely agree with Gillian’s comment. Why would HIP2SAVE support this scam?

  29. Shae

    We made the mistake of purchasing a return a box from Wibargains. They said our box shipped and in reality sent us a fake FedEx tracking number. We reached out to the company through various means requesting they make things right and provide a refund. We were told no and they refused to reimburse or resend another box even though they sent a fake number. We are now out $125. I have placed a complaint with BBB and am still waiting to hear back. I highly recommend you think twice before doing business with this ramshackle operation.

    • Marie

      If you bought it with your credit card you can do a chargeback. Contact your card issuer.

    • Angie

      I agree 100% with Marie but act fast. You only have 60 days to dispute it. Don’t let them get away with this.

  30. Norris

    Shame on you Hip2Save. I trusted you and ordered. Now I am finding out this is a scam. Tons of bad reviews online. Boy am I a sucker! So mad.🤬

  31. Marie

    Hey, I am back to report I bought 2 x $35 clothing boxes and had good luck!!! I got one Amazon returns and one Target returns. Everything in good condition, various sizes, and worth far more than I paid. Many items I can wear, including a swimsuit! 😀

  32. dee

    I purchased the Target box awhile back and I found that it was not worth the cost or trouble. Many of the items were what I would consider junk..taking up much needed space in my home.

  33. Naayomee

    I bought an Amazon box for $35- 20% off (Thanks Hip2Save)! Even if it’s trash I’m a Seamstress so I’ll make something of it.😉

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! Hope you love the items in your box!

  34. llc

    Kinda disappointed in hip2save too. This is a giant scam and people trust your opinions. It’s sad that businesses like this exist. Where is their integrity?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Sorry for any confusion. Thanks so much for your feedback. We did share two different experiences above to note that this can vary greatly. Hoping that is helpful.

  35. Grete

    This is a terrible company to deal with!! I ordered a box 2 months ago when H2S posted about it and still haven’t received it. Called to cancel the order and they refused. They told me they would then expedite it and it has been another two weeks. From what I’ve read, they only send boxes filled with decent stuff to influencers. You guys may want to have second thoughts about promoting this company

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Grete. It did take a while for use to receive our boxes. Hoping yours arrives real soon!

      • Grete

        I have followed you guys for years and I am grateful for the great deals and tips you guys give. However, I (along with many others) do trust H2S’s advise & tips & we got completely scammed by this company. I’m now out close to $120 with an open BBB case. A bummer is correct.

  36. tiffanydavis

    Hard pass- i never got anything that made me feel like “it was worth it” just lining the pockets of pallet buyers.

  37. Erin

    The second box is definitely *way* better than the first regardless of “MSRP,” but I’d never waste $100 on this kind of thing to begin with. Better off throwing away $100 in lottery tickets. At least some of those funds go to education, senior citizens, etc.

  38. Sharina

    Sara definitely got the better box.

  39. Brittany

    I honestly miss the H2S from 10 years ago. Why would you promote this by offering a discount code??

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Brittany! Thanks for commenting. We did have two different experiences shared above and have provided a code if this is something anyone might like to try. This may not be a good option to try for everyone.

    • Donica2013

      I’ve been following Hip2Save since 2012. Sad to see that this is the way the site has gone. It’s like they will do anything for views of their posts and will often promote items just for us to use their referral links. Use to be Colin and her family running the site. Posting “warning” on shady deals or orders that might get canceled. Now I find myself going to other deal pages since they post more real bargains and more coupon matchups.

      • Kimker

        I agree, and also what is with them posting pictures of flyers now (like for CVS) and saying we circled our favorite deals for you? I might as well just look through the flyers myself to see the deals. I don’t need someone to circle them for me, lol. That just makes me shake my head every time I see it, it’s so silly and seems like such a lazy way to post.

      • Teresa

        The good ‘ol days. But it’s a real business now and this is all part of it.

      Absolutely agree.

      Agreed. Such cool deals a while back. Now rarely a good read. Still grateful for occasional gem, but have to weed out a lot of so-so and sponsored posts.

      Same here. Just thinking this the other day. I’ve been following since ‘09, and I get that things change, and I’m glad they’ve found a way to make the blog super successful, but they’ve drifted pretty far from the types of posts that I originally loved following.

    • Chantel

      100% feel the same way. I find it very shady that H2S also doesn’t tell us when a post is promoted a.k.a. an ad. I’ve really only kept coming back because of positive memories of how it was back when Colin was actually running it. It definitely has the feel of your favorite family run place getting turned into a corporate franchise now.

    I would have to agree, the post makes me excited & wanting to try it out but thankfully I read these comments & decided to save my money, time & headaches. & I too am surprised H2S is promoting such a controversial deal where so many say they didn’t get it or got trash….that’s not a good deal to me.

    What a waste of money!

    Dang $125 for other people’s junk. Window panels, plastic eggs wrong size sheets and clothes … yeah, no thank you. People are buying them for the surprise element I guess.

  43. Paige Jacobs

    Well I bought before the comments. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ Guess I’m prob screwed.

  44. Karen

    I never even received my order and paid $80. What a waste. They are scammers.

  45. debbie ditieri

    Wow. You both got a 125.00 box or worthless junk. First of all who on earth would pay retail for that junk? Retail values do not count. I have hundreds of 39.00 msrp outdated phones cases. What are they worth? Nothing and so are both boxes. You can get betters deals by bargain hunting Amazon. I got the knife set for 14. Get microfiber king sheet sets all the time for 7 to 9 bucks and really nice pillows for 5 and how can you possibly say the retail value of one random curtain panel is 25? It’s value is zero as no one ever buys a random panel. And if they did it would be for 50 cent.

    Please be cautious sharing this website. I ordered based on your feedback over a month ago. It said shipped, August 12th and when I select track shipping, it says no such tracking exists. I have emailed the company and can report back, but as of now we do not have what we paid for nor an update

    • Steve

      Same here i ordered before i actually checked everything out and the only thing i have received is 2 emails saying my boxes have shipped and included fake FedEx tracking numbers. I am going to send them a cancellation notice tonight and also let them know i will go to my bank and reverse charges at the end of the week.

  47. Laura

    I would never! This isn’t worth it when you can get most of those items for sooo much less with sales & coupons. Also I am with other ppl on the fact that if you aren’t an influencer, you get junk. I tried a fab box and had no expectations but it was so different than all the ads I’ve ever seen such junk! I’d rather other something I want for $100 and have fun waiting off it to arrive and unbox!

  48. Sparrowfly

    This sounds like a terrible idea! Lol!

  49. Sharon

    I do not have money to waste on stuff that is probably useless to me. I guess people have money to throw away.

    • riss

      I never heard of this til now, but why would anyone pay that much for something unknown and used/returned? Unless yourea gambling person, or someone with lots of disposable income who likes the thrill of the unknown.

    My husband ordered 2 boxes after I saw the post of H2S. He was hesitant, but I assured him H2S would not share scams. Well, it’s been 3 weeks now and all we have is a fake FedEx tracking number. Nothing has been shipped to us, and they won’t reply to our communication. He has now disputed it with the CC company. What a giant hassle. Tsk tsk, H2S. Hopefully by sharing our horrible experiences, we can save some other poor souls.
