Student Velocity Review - September 2016 - Canadian Student Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

This box was provided complimentary for review and this post contains affiliate links.

What is it? Student Velocity 
How much? $24.99/month, plus $6 shipping. Prices in Canadian dollars.

Student Velocity  is Canadian subscription that sends care packages to Canadian students. Each monthly box will contain healthy study snacks, practical items, and fun gifts to help university and college students get through their academic terms.


Since Student Velocity is aimed at students, they only ships boxes through the fall and winter semesters, which is 8 months. There are no boxes in May, June, July, or August. This is the Back to School Box, the first box released since April. Boxes ship on the 24th of the month prior (eg: September box shipped August 24th). You can skip or cancel any time through you account page.

Sensible Portions Veggie Chips and Veggie Straws (2 x $1.50)
I don't normally eat potato chips, but these veggie chips and straws are pretty tasty.


Enlightened Roasted Broad Beans in Mesquite BBQ and Garlic & Onion (2 x $1.25) 
I've never heard of roasted broad beans. I guess they are a play on roasted chickpeas. One packet is only 100 calories and 7 grams of protein!

Quo Vadis Sapa x Academic Weekly Agenda ($11.49) 
This small weekly agenda starts in July and runs through the end of 2017. I was just looking at 2017 agendas the other day so this is perfect timing. 

It's a weekly format, which I'm not used to. I prefer the monthly at-a-glance style, but I will try to make use of this one!

BIC Intensity Porous Point Pens ($3.69) 
Good quality pens are important! 

Raw Revolution RawRev Bar ($0.90) 
This little "Chocolate Crave" bar is only 100 calories and made with "raw" ingredients.

Modern Mary "The Dustbag" (~$30) 
Modern Mary is a Canadian company that produces high-end leather lunch bags, or "food clutches". The Dustbag is included in the purchase of every food clutch, but it doesn't seem to be sold separately at the moment. I estimated the price, but I have a feeling it would probably retail for more. Modern Mary says this nylon pouch can be used to transport  food, drinks, snacks, wet items, toiletry items, cosmetics, and other things that could spill and mess up your book bag. It's a great idea. I've spilled things in my work tote more than a few times.

The September "Back to School" box from Student Velocity included eight items (5 snacks and 3 lifestyle items), valued over $52 Canadian. This box costs $31 Canadian, with shipping. For back to school time, we received an agenda, some new pens, and a great storage pouch. The healthy snacks are always welcome too! It's nice to see Student Velocity back at it after summer vacation.
