General Questions

What's inside The Nick Box?

The Nick Box is an officially licensed subscription box service that is delivered to your door every season. Inside the box, you'll find awesome apparel, accessories, and collectibles you can’t get anywhere else!

  

Who makes this box?

The Nick Box is built by CultureFly, an official licensee of Nickelodeon.

  

Can't I just buy these items in stores?

Nope! Everything made for The Nick Box is exclusive, which means you can't find them anywhere else. If you want them, you'll have to subscribe!

 

Do you offer a one-time purchase option?

We now do! Not sure if you want to sign up for subscription right away and want to try out the box? Sign up with our one-time option so you can get the current box. You can always come back and sign up for the subscription plans so you don't miss out on future boxes. Signing up for a subscription plan is the better deal!

 

What is the different between Quarterly and Annual Plans?

We offer two different plans to make it easier for you to get your Nick goodies. Both plans are set to auto-renew, so you never miss a box.

Quarterly Plan = $49.99 plus shipping, you will be billed a month before your box ships.

Annual Plan = $45.99 plus shipping, you will be billed a for all 4 boxes at sign up.

If you choose to sign up for the Annual Plan, you’ll save $5.00 per box! That's a savings of $20 a year!  

*Sales tax may be applicable

 

Can I give a Nick Box as a gift?

Yes. We offer a one-time box option that you can send to someone as a gift. This is separate from the subscription and will only ship them the current box available. To get a box set up, you can create a new account with a new username and password for the recipient. 

If you would like to gift someone a subscription, whether annual or quarterly, follow the same instructions stated above.

If the box does not ship on the exact date you need it by, use this gift receipt to let them know it's on the way.

 

Why are you asking for my apparel size?

Some boxes will contain apparel, so to ensure your box is delivered quickly, we ask you for your size at sign up! Sizes are adult unisex.

Boxes may come with tees, long sleeves, jackets, or hoodies, so please be mindful when you choose your size. We do offer a peek at the apparel (without spoiling it!) on the box page.

 

Can I purchase a previous box?

Once a box sells out, it is no longer available to purchase. That's what makes each quarter's box so exclusive!

 

I love a specific item in the box, but don't want the entire box. Can I purchase items individually?

Each item is made for the box it comes in and we do not sell them outside of the box. If you want that item, you will need to sign up for a box.

 

Shipping

What countries do you ship to?

We currently ship to all 50 United States, Puerto Rico, other U.S territories, and Canada.

 

How often will I receive The Nick Box? 

The Nick Box is a subscription service. You will receive a new mystery package every season!

 

When will my Nick Box ship? 

We ship boxes on a quarterly schedule, very 3-4 months. 

***Please refer to the Important Dates chart above for more information.***

 

How much does shipping cost?

Our boxes will ship anywhere in the US for a flat rate of $9.00

International customers are required to pay any relevant duties, customs, or taxes associated with their country. Shipping to Canada is $20.00 (USD).

 

Why are international shipping fees more than domestic?

International shipping fees vary from country to country. Each international box is shipped with Priority Express International Shipping and is fully insured and trackable. 

 

Once my box ships how long will it take to arrive?

If you are a subscriber located in the USA, you will receive a shipping notification when your box is dispatched via Fedex or USPS along with a tracking number. At that point, your box will arrive within 3 to 7 business days. 

If you are an international subscriber (outside the USA), you will receive a shipping notification when your box is dispatched via the post office along with a tracking number. At that point, your box will arrive within 5 to 10 business days. Please be aware that international packages may be delayed by customs in your country and that you are responsible for any associated import fees.

Any new subscription that comes after that quarter's box has already started shipping may take up to two weeks to ship.

 

Why does tracking seem to be taking longer than it should?

The boxes actually ship from California even though our return address is listed as New York City – where our home office is. We do that in the event your box is marked ‘return to sender,’ it comes back to our office and we can get it to its rightful home! Our boxes ship out of our main warehouse in California. 

 

What is the difference between unfulfilled and fulfilled?

If your subscription says Unfulfilled on your account, this means that your order is all set, but it has not started shipping yet. When it changes to Fulfilled, you should receive your tracking information via email.  

 

I received my tracking link, but it hasn't moved in a while. What should I do?

We ask that you do keep an eye on your tracking, as it may update as soon as possible.

However, if your tracking link says "Pending" or your delivery date has not updated in over 10 business days, please reach out to our customer service at contact@thenickbox.com so they can take a closer look.

Billing

When will I be billed for a recurring subscription? **PLEASE NOTE, YOU WILL BE CHARGED IN FULL ON INITIAL SIGNUP**

You will be charged for $49.99 plus shipping for the Quarterly plan and $183.96 plus shipping for the Annual plan. Both plans are set to auto-renew once your initial plan has ended.

***Please refer to the Important Dates chart above for more information on when you will be billed.***
