What is My Geek Box?
Similar to the ever popular Loot Crate, My Geek Box seeks to provide an alternative while still remaining true to it’s “geeky” roots. My Geek Box offers unique products included in every month’s box ranging from POP! Vinyl’s to t-shirts that will satisfy your inner nerd. Through our experience, and research, we’ve found My Geek Box to be a legitimate contender with more popular nerd boxes such as Loot Crate.
To give a quick overview, for those who can’t read this full review right now, My Geek Box offers three different versions of their monthly box. The first is their normal “My Geek Box” which includes geeky collectibles every month for $16.99 IF you purchase 12 months up front. More on this later but you are able to purchase fewer months at a time, but for a higher monthly price.
Another box offered is the My Geek Box Kids version which will contain items aimed to entertain your “little nerds in training”. My Geek Box offers a “Little Hero Box” and a “Little Princess Box” under this category.
Lastly, for a much cheaper option, My Geek Box Lite is offered to those looking for a sample taste of the larger box. The Lite option starts at $8.49/month.
What to expect from My Geek Box
So what should you be expecting in your monthly box? My Geek Box says that you can expect 1 limited edition t-shirt every month and 4-7 geeky collectibles which could include POP! Vinyl’s, mugs, keychains, stickers, figurines, or just about anything nerdy.
One other thing My Geek Box wants to highlight is their free shipping which they offer on all of their subscriptions. Kind of a nice feature.

My Geek Box Cost/Pricing
Something we found interesting about the pricing structure of My Geek Box is that you are able to purchase a certain amount of months upfront. The downside to this is that if you purchase the 6 month plan, find out that you aren’t a fan of the box, and want your money back, there’s no promise that they will honor that request. It seems that they discourage returns and are reluctant to honor requests for reimbursements.
Something to make a note of here, and they state this on the site, if you purchase a plan it will automatically renew at the end of the term, so, you still have to cancel manually if you want to stop receiving the monthly boxes.
Take a look at the chart below to get an idea of pricing.
|My Geek Box Pricing Plans||1 Month Plan||3 Month Plan||6 Month Plan||12 Month|
|My Geek Box||$19.99||$18.99||$17.99||$16.99|
|My Geek Box Kids||$26.99||$24.99||$23.99||$22.99|
|My Geek Box Lite||$9.99||$9.49||$8.99||$8.49|
Is My Geek Box worth it?
So, is My Geek Box worth your money? We do our best here to give you the facts and let you decide for yourself as to whether the purchase is worth your while. My Geek Box offers quality products at reasonable prices. Through our research, the monthly boxes satisfy the inner nerds desire for geeky stuff. It doesn’t disappoint.
The only thing that gave us pause was the strange pricing structure. You aren’t saving all that much by purchasing the longer-month subscription plan so you may as well just go with the longer plans. This of course means you may be running a risk of not being able to get your money back if you decide in month 4 of the 6 month plan that you don’t want to receive boxes any longer. Just something to keep in mind here.

Things you should know
Again My Geek Box offers free shipping on all of their subscription plans which is a nice thing to offer customers. We haven’t found this to be true amongst many subscription services.
The My Geek Box Lite plan is a great feature for those wanting a cheap option. And the Child subscription plan is great for parents who want their little one trained properly in nerd culture!
