Criticism of Loot Crate

Loot Crate - Geek subscription box for gamers and nerds

The main criticism people have had regarding Lootcrate.com is in regards to the amount of emails they receive from the company regularly. Once a crate is purchased, the company will send regular updates regarding other crates available on the site. Those that spent time choosing their crate from the list of options often say they do not need to see the other choices sent by email on a constant basis. This problem is minimal, however, and can be solved by simply unsubscribing to the email notifications.

Customer Support
