Over the last 12 months since The Keeper Box concept was formally conceived, we have tirelessly surveyed our members and community to discover the ways we could slowly, safely and robustly refine our club membership to offer better and better service, best-ever value and huge membership perks at each iteration.
Consistently, from day one, the single biggest complaint or confusing point about our club was the “activation” fees (erstwhile known as Style/Access fee), which ranged from $279 to $899 depending on the level of luxury (plan) you picked. To date, these were paid upfront as a kick-start to membership.
The Big Watch Risk
Bearing in mind that from month 1 when you join, we will be shipping you $1000-2000 watches (on average, on LUXE-LUXE plans as an example), there is of course, an inherent risk to our company. A watch gets damaged out of the box, lost, stolen, manhandled (all of these have happened a number of times), then we are having to replace a $1000-2000 watch, each time. So that was always the reason activation fees were in place - security and commitment.
They have always been one-time fees, but we appreciate that they do front-load the membership and so create a heftier investment at launch of your membership, which, depending on your budget and proclivity for membership to clubs, could be a deal-breaker - this, we understand! As an example, the average upfront month 1 price on LUXE plan (our most popular) is $469 before monthly membership even starts. So by month 3 you are paying $766, after which monthly $99p/m takes over.
The Solution & Availability
We envisage this new adjustment being our final plan pricing adjustment for (at least) the foreseeable future. As always, our membership numbers are strictly limited. So, we are opening a pre-reg for you but only if you are one of the first 50 in each plan. In effect, the solution we have built for you is engineered so that you will be able to choose (much like you would with a vehicle lease) whether to pay more upfront (activation fee), in exchange for a lower monthly membership, or just go straight onto low-flat-rate membership from day one (and forego the activation fees).
On LUXE Plan, again as the example, you would therefore be able to opt to invest $447 in your first quarter, instead of $766!

How do I Know What Plan is Best For Me?
It's pretty simple, it will come down to what your monthly watch budget is, and balancing that with what level of watch you want to wear/enjoy. Below are just some examples of the value/watches on each plan, that get sent to members each month.
NEW EXEC PLAN
EXEC Plan at $99p/m (no activation) will offer watches that average $500 in value (up to 9 per year and $4500 in watches experienced) - these are predominently automatic microbrand watches. Just some recent examples of member watches, below...
NEW LUXE PLAN
LUXE Plan at $149p/m (no activation fee) will offer watches that average $1000 in value (up to 9 per year e.g. avg $9000 in watches enjoyed) - predominently high-beat automatic microbrand or established brands. Just some recent examples of member watches, below...
NEW LUXE PLAN
LUXE Plan at $266p/m (no activation fee) will offer watches that average $2000 in value (up to 9 per year e.g. up to $18,000 in watches enjoyed) - predominently high-beat automatic established brands. Just some recent examples of member watches, below...
WHAT IS YOUR COMMITMENT?
As per our previous plans, the minimum commitment to join the club is just 3 months / 1 quarter. That commitment allows you to experience 2-3 watches and get a feel for the value and fun of The Keeper Box. After that initial commitment period, you are free to pause/skip/cancel membership at your discretion, but of course, we sure hope that is not the case and from what our members have told us and exhibited, it's incredibly rare (again, that's totally your call - absolute freedom and control of your membership!).
Head on over to www.thekeeperbox.com and use the form on the homepage to get on the pre-reg VIP list for early access to the launch of these new plans. At 9am EST Tues 1st November our VIP's on this list will be sent secret links to join via email. At 12:00pm EST (if there are spots left) the site will open to the public, and it's a free for all until membership spots are sold out.
OH, SNAP! 🛳 🏴☠️
Another little bonus feature we are now offering is free shipping on all plans as well as "Ship Packs" at $99 which covers ALL your ship-back labels via UPS/USPS (saving up to $125 in shipping labels alone!!). The reason we are doing this is that we have noticed members paying up to $25 per LABEL to return watches to us (e.g. do this 9 times in a year's membership and suddenly you are down $225!). So we're saving you ALL hassle. If you're a ship-pack member, simply email email@example.com when you need a label and our team will buy/send you the label same day 🥳
Existing members will be able to add a ship-pack from their dashboard too!
So go on, register for early access above and get ready for the experience of a lifetime in the watch community!
