The Dig-In Box is a welcome gift box service for university students. It is owned by three friends Chris, Neil and Matt. They aim to supply the box to to 75% of freshers in the UK.
I received one when I moved into halls in my first year. Each box has an individual code which you activate on the Dig-In website in the hope to win cool prizes. The box also contains free samples, coupons and other items to help you get started.
I got my second Dig-In box this year when I moved into my studio apartment. Check out my moving in video.
Please like/comment/subscribe if you haven’t already. I post videos every Monday.
Every student moving in was given one but I feel a bit sneaky having one now as I am a third year and being a first year feels like so long ago.
Anyway, each Dig-In box varies slightly so I wanted to show you what I got in mine.
A small academic calendar.
I actually forgot to buy an academic calendar for this year but I did buy a diary. This may or may not come in handy.
A pack of playing cards and a giff gaff sim card.
I never used the sim card that I got in first year, so I doubt I’ll use this one either. If anyone would like it, let me know. However, I have great fun with playing cards, especially for drinking games.
A guide to mental health with information and support.
This is something I definitely didn’t receive in my first year and something I wish I had. However, my uni does try to support people in other ways.
A Surf bio capsule and £1 off a full pack.
I do actually use capsules rather than liquids for my laundry so I’ll definitely be using both of these.
An original boost energy drink.
I’m more of a Monster gal myself but when I tried this, I did like it and it gave me the energy I needed to move in (as you can see in the video).
A Nando’s perinaise sauce sample and a free 1/4 chicken or burger when you spend £7 or more.
I’m a Nando’s lover so I’ll be making full use of these.
A Kenco iced coffee sample and 50p off a full pack.
I’m an iced coffee lover but it creeped me out putting cold water into the mug rather than hot. It did taste good but I can’t say I’ll be using that coupon. I might give it away.
A deal at Jamie’s Italian and a pot of pasta.
Jamie’s is far too expensive for me to go to very often and my closest one is Newcastle so that might be off the cards. I did like my pasta pot though.
A poster for Jack Ryan and student Amazon Prime.
I already used my Amazon Prime trial in first year and I prefer Netflix. I also took the poster down as soon as I took the photo.
Would you use the samples in the Dig-In box?
