What subscription options are there?

There are several options available. Sign up for a box with no tie-in for £40pm or save by signing up for a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription for only £35pm. Go for 6 months and you will receive an extra mini-box within the life of your subscription  – two mini-boxes if you sign up for 12 months. All with free postage.

When will I pay for my box?

All payments are taken on 17th of the month for the following month’s box.

When will my box arrive?

Boxes will be despatched by Royal Mail around 8th of the month and should be with you
within a few days. Delivery time may vary slightly due to location. Delivery is in the UK only
and is free.

What if I have read the book?

With over 40,000 novels published in the UK every year, and our focus being mainly  smaller publishers, hopefully this won’t happen.
If you have read the book,  then why not gift it to a friend? We are sorry but we are
unable to refund or swap the book or any of the items.

Can I return the box?

Sorry, there are no returns.  Your statutory rights
remain in place. Contact us if you have any queries.

Can I buy the box as a gift?

Of course – that would be lovely ! Go to the Gift a Box page and you can leave a
message for us to put inside for you. You will be offered the same options as a regular subscription.  Choose when you would like the box to start – choose the month before as this is your payment date. e.g if you would like the box to be despatched in November, choose 17th October as your start date. 

Can I change or cancel my subscription?

You are able to upgrade, pause or cancel your subscription through your customer account, details of which you will find on your email notifications when you sign up. You can also find a link on the Order your Real MEE Box page. 

A monthly box can be cancelled at any point before the 17th of the month and 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions are rolling subscriptions until you cancel them. Do get in touch if you have any queries.

Can I just buy one box and have it sent straightaway?

The ethos of The Real MEE Box is to encourage women to take regular time to re-charge, re-fresh and read which is why this is a subscription product.

The monthly, no tie-in option may be the most suitable if you are looking for flexibility as you can choose how long your subscription runs for.

Occasionally we have limited stock of one-off boxes which can be posted within 2 working days. Check out availability on the Gift a Box page.

Why am I not able to order a box for next month?

It may be because you are ordering after the 17th of the month.

Many of the products we include in the box are made in small quantities to order. Because of this we need to give our suppliers time to produce them and this is why 17th is the cut off and billing date for the following month’s box.

If you are ordering after the 17th of the month then your first box will arrive up to  approximately 6 weeks later. e.g if you buy on 20th January, you will receive the March box.
