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

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

** As of Dec 2016, Student Velocity ceased operations. **
What is it? Student Velocity 
How much? $24.99/month, plus $6 shipping. Prices in Canadian dollars.
What's in it? 2-4 snacks and 2-3 lifestyle items 

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.

Each box is themed around a specific point in the academic year. Whether it's back-to-school, term paper madness, or stress eating finals the box is designed with students in mind! 

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. 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. 


The box is bigger this month, but there isn't a whole lot in there!

The theme for October is "Student Living". 

Wallies Dry Erase Vinyl Decals (2 - 9x12 sheets, $13 Canadian)
This is a cool product. A student could stick one on the dorm room wall to record deadlines and events, and another on their room door so people can leave notes and messages. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do with these. 

Oskri Coconut Dark Chocolate Bar ($1)
This little bar is made with coconut and coated in delicious dark chocolate. 

Smarties & Coffee Crisp Minis
It's October, so they had to include some Halloween Candy! 

Master Lock 22D Laminated Padlock ($4.99)
This would probably come in handy for dorm life or even gym life. Funny thing... while searching for a price on Google, I came across how to pick a Master Lock 22d. Uh oh!

Trim Deluxe Toenail Clipper ($5.99 retail - discounted elsewhere)
The card says this is an easily forgotten item when packing for school. I will take their word for it! 

Zum Clean All-Natural Aromatherapy Laundry Soap Sample ($2.65 Canadian)
This all natural laundry soap is safe for all colours, works in HE machines, and is also a natural fabric softener. One pouch does one load. Subscribers received one of three scents.

Patience Fruit & Co. Dried Cranberries (3 x 24g pouches, $2.25)
These cranberries are sweetened with apple juice. They are VERY sweet. I am going to mix them into yogourt or oatmeal. A full size bag is 142g for $3.79 from Well


The October Student Velocity included seven products, valued around $30 Canadian. That is a generous valuation as I found a couple of the products on discount or clearance. The box actually feels like it's worth a lot less. The items are kind of random for the given theme. The snacks are very tasty though.

Interested in trying Student Velocity for yourself or as a gift? You can save 10% off your order using promo code BOXADDICT10 at checkout. Code is valid for new subscribers only.
