Christmas came early this year with the delivery of our second BattlBox. Mission 10 arrived this week and I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! Last month was our first BattlBox, and you saw that we increased our subscription from the Basic Box to the Pro Plus Box. Let’s take a look inside and see what survival gear goodies we got inside for December.

The boxes are great and a ton of fun to open, but what about the "amazing deals" they list on their website? I broke down the prices with the same or comparable items online to see if we are getting the amazing deals each box is supposed to provide.

Basic Box BB MSRP Web Price

BattlBox Mission 10 Unboxing Contents

Let's break it down “Barney Style”.

  1. The Basic box cost $24.99 a month and I wasn’t able to find all those items for less than $30.35. So the Basic box is a good deal, saving you $5.36.
  2. The Advanced box cost $49.99 a month and I wasn’t able to find all those items for less than $84.33. $34.34 in savings makes the Advanced box is a great deal.
  3. The Pro box cost $99.99 a month and the best I found them for was $133.74. So the Pro box is a great deal, saving you $33.75.
  4. The Pro Plus box cost $149.99 a month and I wasn’t able to find all those items for less than $206.33. $56.34 in savings makes the Pro Plus box the best deal of all the subscriptions.

As you can see from the chart, all the boxes are a good deal. While you can find prices better than the prices BattlBox advertises as the MSRP price the overall subscription price is much cheaper. These internet prices also don't take into account shipping from the internet sources. Don’t let the price alone be the only factor for the “worth” of the BattlBox. The excitement I had when I got the shipment notification was for me worth the cost even if every item I wouldn't have normally purchased. The surprise of opening was almost as good as waking up as a kid on Christmas morning!
