What Makes KitNipBox Unique?

At first blush, we find the KitNipBox is the most reasonably priced for what you get, and shipping is free in the United States. While products can be compared across competitors, KitNipBox takes great care to locate products that are made in North America. The treats are strictly all-natural, organic and/or grain-free to avoid the pesky allergies and tummy-upsetting foods that can be found out there.

Subscribers may also indicate if they do not want to receive food items and switch them for other products. We find these goodie boxes come with unique items intended to keep your cat healthy, fit and, above all, happy. In addition to fun toys and delicious treats, there are some must-have accessories, innovative new gadgets, health and hygiene items and even some surprises.

Items are only selected for each box after meticulous research and analysis of each item is performed. They are only satisfied with items that have positive reviews and a proven track record for quality and safety.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • All items selected for KitNipBox are researched and tested for quality and safety. While products are researched globally, purchases are mainly made in North America and some from Europe, Australia or New Zealand.
  • You get a unique referral link with your account so that anyone who subscribes using your link will earn you an additional 15 percent off your next KitNipBox. Your friend also gets 15 percent off their first box. If you refer enough friends in a month, you can qualify for a free KitNipBox. 
  • A portion of the proceeds from KitNipBox profits is put toward the support of hundreds of animal welfare organizations across the nation. This includes shelters, rescues, TNR efforts and many other feline welfare causes.
  • KitNipBox is good value for the price. Consistently, when we compare the typical retail price for the items contained in the Happy Cat box, we are receiving at least $28.00 worth of products for $19.99.

Cons

  • The highest discount we could find is capped at 15 percent, once for the first sign-up and then if you are able to get friends to subscribe using your unique link. There is a place to enter a discount code but only upon signing up. 
  • Only option is a monthly subscription with automatic renewal. If you want to change the frequency, the only choice is to cancel the subscription.
  • Getting 5-8 items each month can pile up over time if you only have one cat to play with them. While it is reasonable for the price, it can seem like a little too much after some months have gone by.

How the Signup Process Works

Sign-up is straightforward and easy to follow. You can get start just by submitting your email address, but you won’t start receiving items until you designate your preferred box and set up your payment method. Changing your KitNipBox option is also easy. If you have a coupon code, you can enter it to ensure your discount. There is also a sign-up discount of 15 percent for your first box.

KitNipBox Get Started


Once you are signed up, the subscription renews automatically each month to ensure you receive your monthly goodie box. We especially like that shipping is free within the United States. Shipping applies to Canada for $6.95 and $7.95 going to Europe, Mexico and Australia. 

Pricing and Value

We find pricing on the KitNipBox subscriptions to be reasonable. When compared to comparable boxes, KitNipBox is one of the less expensive choices. Competitors appear to offer deals with a recurring subscription, for example, CatKit offers 8 percent for a minimum of three months, and PurrPacks offers 10 percent. However, both charges extra for shipping.

$19.99 / month

Multi Cat KitNipBox

Multi-Cat KitNipBox

You can get started with KitNipBox for $19.99 a month applying a 15 percent sign-up discount and free shipping in the U.S. This lets you start receiving your monthly goodie box and gives you the chance to evaluate the value for money. We are pleased with the value we have seen in the KitNipBox product selections.

While it does not provide for your option to only receive a box when you order one, you can easily cancel at any time by logging into your account and selecting “Edit Subscription.” Cancellation is complete upon confirmation through an email. It is best to cancel at least one week before the next shipment to avoid being charged for the next box you receive automatically. 

Public Perception

Common among the KitNipBox subscribers is how well-received these monthly subscription boxes are. This is similar to the competition. It is safe to say that there is hardly a cat-treat box subscription that a cat won’t like. Cats are engaged from the moment the box arrives. It is, after all, a box. 

The most popular method of opening the box to see what is contained inside is to lift the lid and lay the box down for the cats to personally explore. It is not difficult to convey that the variety of products are for kitty, but then, cats have a strong sense of self-possession over all things that come into their “purr-view.”

Since each month’s subscription box contains new and different items, you get a chance to see what appeals more strongly to your cats over other items. Of course, those products that are scented or filled with catnip are a treat to adore, for sure. This display of cat-appreciation is possibly as much fun to watch as it is for the cats to enjoy.

We could not find a reception of receipt of goods that was not purely positive. Cats are reportedly engaged from the moment the box is opened. Their curiosity carries them through discovering each item and finally occupying the empty box. Of particular interest is the corrugated cat-scratcher that also comes with catnip that you can sprinkle into the cardboard crinkles to make things even more interesting. 

The choice of items is under your control. You get to manage your subscription easily online with the drop-downs if you don’t want to receive the treats and opt for more toys instead. Even cancellation is an easy process of following the prompts. The only consideration is timing and you will need to confirm cancellation in an email. As this is a monthly subscription, you need to be careful to cancel before the next shipment is in effect. Otherwise, you could be canceling mid-shipment and be charged for another month.

Returns are managed similarly across competition. You can email admin with any issues over defective goods and arrange for their replacement. The sooner you handle any returns, the better. 

How It Compares

The KitNipBox compares very well to other subscription boxes. For starters, the choices are limited to two boxes: 

  • The Happy Cat – designed to please a single feline
  • The Multi-Cat – for two or more cats

Given that each box among the choices of subscriptions has similar assortment of toys and treats, your cat is sure to pile up a reserve of goodies. We find that going to extremes with three and more box options can get complicated. Even if you have three or more cats, you will find that their collection of products will suffice. You can be watchful of the items that become favorites and get licked to bits or quickly destroyed from too much fun.

One of the things we like about KitNipBox treats is their commitment to finding all-natural, organic, grain-free products that are only produced in North America, Europe, Australia or New Zealand. There are no treats that come from China. There may be some toys that come from China, but rigorous product testing is conducted to ensure the quality of the product and for your cat’s safety. You can also indicate on your monthly order if you prefer to swap toys for treats if you do not want to receive any edible items.

As far as price points, we find the KitNipBox subscriptions extremely reasonable. The Happy Cat is $19.99 and contains five toys and treats. The Multi-Cat is $29.99 for seven to eight treats and toys. That is well below CatKit, Cat Lady Box and Rescue Box that all average $35.00 for the same thing. 

The KitNipBox comes with high-quality cat toys and all-natural treats. You also get other fun and healthy products for your cats. Some examples are:

  • Catnip Bell – a 100 percent wool felt handmade toy with all-natural and locally grown catnip
  • Caterpillar Kicker – one of the many kicker toys your cat can bat, kick and hug to pieces
  • Refillable Catnip Heart Toy – comes with AAA grade catnip
  • Festive Fun-Filled Felt Toy – extra-interesting for its crinkly and bright material
  • Zuke’s G-Zees Tender Grain-Free Treats – a tender and delicious nutritional turkey treat that also provides powerful joint support and promotes urinary tract health

Signing up is very easy to do. You just choose a subscription plan, enter your billing information and start receiving your KitNipBox each month. You can cancel your subscription at any time, and shipping is free in the U.S.

Is It Worth It For Me?

If you are a proud cat owner looking to receive a regular shipment of goodies that are sure to entertain your favorite furry feline friend, then the KitNipBox just might be the “purrfect” addition to your subscription addictions. The items contained in each box are a hit with cats and deliver hours of entertainment both for the cats and their owners to watch how much they get out of these goodie boxes.

It is worth giving this one a try just to see for yourself how much fun your cat will derive from the pleasure of receiving one of these delightful boxes, and you can leave your comments about your personal experience once you do. 

If you don’t have cats but simply adore anything to do with them, then the CatKit may be more to your liking with items related to cats that are designed for people. They provide such items as cat-themed and cat-shaped mugs, T-shirts, jewelry and more. Just be prepared for the recurring price tag.

Coupons and Deals

There is a box to enter a coupon code in the sign-up process. There is also a 15 percent discount you can take advantage of for being a first-time subscriber. You may find coupon codes that offer a deeper discount on specific sites that offer such codes, but in our searches, the highest discount we could find for KitNipBox was 15 percent. 

There is an opportunity to gain 15 percent off your monthly boxes if you get friends to subscribe under your unique link. If you are industrious in this effort and get at least 10 people to sign up under your link in the space of one month, you can even get a free box delivered to you.
