Loot Crate shoppers, known as “Looters,” will be able to purchase the retailer’s monthly pop culture mystery boxes from Amazon’s subscription box store beginning in November. Amazon also offers beauty subscription boxes from Julep and Allure, as well as a STEM Club toy box and a Carnivore Club meat box.
“As we continue our mission to unite the world through the shared celebration of fandom, we’re thrilled to work with Amazon to have our first subscription box integrated in Amazon’s subscription box store,” said Chris Davis, Co-Founder and CEO of Loot Crate in a statement. “This new channel will allow us to reach more passionate fans nationwide, and we hope to offer more of our product lines on Amazon in the future.”
Shoppers will be able to subscribe on Amazon for a Loot Crate month-to-month subscription, with the ability to sign-up or cancel any time before the 20th of each month. Customers with an active subscription will receive their monthly Loot Crates typically between the 20th and 28th of each month. Only U.S. shipping is currently available.
The partnership with Amazon follows a recent alliance with a retailer that’s a major competitor of the e-Commerce giant. The subscription box company began selling collectibles at 3,500 Walmart stores earlier in October. The exclusive collections include themed boxes featuring top movie, TV and game franchises, reimagined as limited-edition collectibles.
Loot Create isn’t the only subscription service with a brick-and-mortar partner. Birchbox is working with Walgreens to put products from its monthly boxes into physical stores starting in December. The program will include Birchbox store-within-a-store spaces at Walgreens locations, and the pharmacy chain will take a minority stake in Birchbox.
