Verizon has launched a mystery box service that offers a gadget to a customer's home, charges the gadget for two weeks, and chooses not to return it. This service, known as the Tech Pack, was announced in an email sent to select customers today. Verizon is limiting how many people can join until the end of the weekend.
This service works like a Stitch Fix or other mystery box delivery service. When you sign up, you take a short quiz about some kind of thing you like, and Verizon uses that information to choose the gadget to send to you. Verizon will ship three technical product boxes very often, and you can keep or return as many as you like.
Verizon will charge a fee if the customer does not return the product within 14 days, saying they can expect to receive a gadget such as Google Home Mini, Mophie. Battery pack, Canary 's Flex camera, LG' s Tone Pro neckbird, Ryze 's Tello Mini Drone and Belkin' s car charger. I do not know what I'm getting until the box arrives. Once you get Verizon, Verizon says you can get free demos, tutorials and technical support. The box contains prepaid shipping labels for returns.
No subscription fee. Verizon did not give the exact price to charge for the gadget, but the spokesperson indicated that it would be similar to what Verizon already sells. The customer will receive a discount on the product based on the quantity kept in each box.
Verizon does not currently tell how often a box is delivered. Most mystery box services offer products on a monthly basis, but Verizon said TechPak is a "trial" and is still looking for ways to send things.
This service is intended to give customers a way to test gadgets in the past. Commit to them. But it also looks like a potentially very expensive twist in a mystery box. Canary's Flex camera is sold for $ 180 via Verizon, and the product has decided to spend because the product appears suddenly at home. Verizon also sells Google's Home Mini for $ 50. It is an unfavorable price to pay because the selling price is close to $ 30.
