February Samplrs/Fancy Gourmet Food Box Review

Samplrs is now Fancy!  An e-mail was recently sent out by Jake Siegal, the founder of Samplrs, announcing the acquisition of Samplrs by Fancy. Fortunately they are honoring the outstanding subscriptions, unfortunately the price has gone up from $29.99 a month to $39.99 a month. From the e-mail:

“I’ve got big news: Samplrs is joining Fancy.
I’m happy to announce that we’re combining forces with our friends at Fancy to help curious folks around the world enjoy special and delicious things. Millions of people use Fancy daily to discover, collect, and buy from a crowd-curated catalog of amazing goods and wonderful places.
What does this mean for you?

  • Samplrs.com is closing down. Your Samplrs account will be closed. Fancy is becoming the go-to site for discovering and buying amazing things online. We want to bring you all the best stuff under the same roof.

Thank you so much for supporting and believing in Samplrs. We’ve come a long way from dorm room packing and delivery via rental van, but this is truly only the beginning, and I’m so excited to share what’s to come.

Cheers,
Jake Siegal”

The approximate value of this month’s Fancy box is $70.60, which is very nicely above the $39.99 monthly cost! I am very impressed by my first Fancy box, and if they keep up this level of value, I will seriously consider renewing with them once my current subscription expires!
