I took advantage of some of Butcherbox's recent Anniversary Member Appreciation Deals as well as their general Member Deals and Add-ons in addition to my standard box and here is the summary:
Butcherbox Custom Classic Box $149
Butcherbox Add-ons $36
Butcherbox Member Deals $125.54
Overall Average Cost Per Pound: $10.58
I had a $5 credit in my account (not sure why? but I'm not mad :) lol! ) so my end average cost per pound was $10.40. PLUS I will start seeing the benefit of the "Beef For Life" add on in my next box, making my cost per pound decrease with every future box! I've heard these deals pop up continually and you can stack them so that you end up getting free beef, bacon, chicken etc. in every box you get!
Is Butcherbox is a good deal?
This is only my second box and I am still formulating my opinion. I definitely like that I am accessing much better quality of meat than I can get at a lot of local grocery stores. The final average cost per pound is also better than I can get at my local grocery store in this particular order. I think you can make Butcherbox a really good value if you choose strategically and look out for deals and take advantage of the best deals. Getting the box is like a special membership that gives you access to lower priced items. That helps lower your overall cost per pound. Also, if you know you can add on a package of bacon for just $7, then you may skip out on choosing it as one of your main box selections and instead choose a more costly cut of meat ;-).
