Get Your Swag On With Power-Up Box!


You’ve heard of LootCrate and NerdBlock. Now a new challenger enters the monthly subscriptions gift game.

With Power-Up Box you’ll get a box of cool gifts mailed to your house every month! Currently partnered with Marvel, Nintendo, DC, Disney, Capcom, and Star Wars, it’s basically guaranteed you’re gonna get something you’ll love. Each package contains a limited-edition T-shirt and a selection of 4-9 nerd-themed toys (depending on your box type), sent out around the 15th of every month and shipped all around the world. And, if you sign up and hate the packages, you can cancel at any time.

You wont hate it though. Not unless you’re a curmudgeon who doesn’t like receiving packages in the mail. I mean, who doesn’t like coming home to find a mystery box on their door step, to which you immediately reenact Brad Pit’s scene from Se7en – “What’s in the box… what’s in the box?!”? 

I can personally attest to how cool it is getting a shipment from Power-Up Box.


I initially forget that I had a Power-Up Box shipment coming. The random box on my doorstep surprised me and excited curiosity got the best of me. I grabbed that sucker and ran it into the house like Batman running with a comically sized bomb. Grabbed a knife and gutted the tape on its seams like a skilled surgeon. Oh, what nerdy wonders await…


While opening the flap of the box, my breath was held while Zelda treasure chest music played in my head. Ta Da! Oh joy, there be swag in the box and lots of it….

My box contained a Harley Quinn Fabrikation, a wee tiny TMNT Donatello keychain, a mini Walking Dead figure, Avengers Lollipop rings, a Batman t-shirt, a Spider-Gwen (#issue 2) comic book and a Power-Up lanyard, pin, and satchel (because self promotion is cool).

The novelty of possessing NEW and unexpected things is an unmistakable joy. It’s kind of like Christmas in that sense. Here’s stuff I want, things I need (or so I tell myself), and things I never knew I wanted.  The mystery of not knowing what you’re gonna get, to that rush of opening your package to discover what goods lay inside… it feels like you looted a nerd pirate’s treasure trove. You may or may not dump your loot over your body like that scene from American Beauty (I plead the fifth).

What sets Power-Up Box apart from its competitors, is that they provide you two swag box options – a monthly subscription of $25.45 or $16.95 containing 6-9 items or 4-6 respectively. So you got options.

What more can I say, other than it’s fun and ridiculously cool. It’ll put a smile on your face. I’ll add that Power-Up Box  is affordable and gives you a lot of bang for your buck. If you do the math, these items add up to approx $50.00. That’s a about a $20.00 savings from buying these suckers at retail. Power-Up Box IS value. To those who are hesitant about buying blindly (not knowing what you’re gonna get), I say that you’re not a high level nerd until your house or office is riddled with nerdy treasures. Worst case scenario, you’ve got items you can re-gift to your nerdy friends and they’ll love you for it – might even get you laid.

Power-Up Box… now you’re buying with POWER!

Treat. Yo. Self. Head on over to Power-Up Box  and get start your subscription today. You won’t regret it.

Oh, and best yet – use Coupon Code “NerdBastards” and you’ll get %10 0ff your first month of either the Premium or deluxe box.
