$50 Giveaway & Review – Green Polka Dot Box – Online Organic Foods {Giveaway Closed}

Green Polka Dot Box
Late in 2011 I introduced all of you to the Green Polka Dot Box with this post: Save up to 60% on Organic and non-GMO Foods.

It was something that sounded like a great idea to me:

  • Savings of up to 60% on organic and non-GMO foods
  • Free delivery option right to your door (for orders of $99 or more)
  • Great product offerings– they are already delivering organic produce to the west coast, are expanding that, and hope to offer meat, eggs and poultry in the near future.

At the time I was promoting it, the offerings weren't even there yet, and the website wasn't functional.

I was putting my reputation on the line, but I really thought it was going to be a good thing.

Like other things, I investigated the Green Polka Dot Box a lot.

You know I really like to dig down into things, right?  Like my series on essential oils?

Anyway, let's just say I poked around on the internet a lot, made a lot of calls and sent a lot of emails.

And since 12/11, the Green Polka Dot Box has been a real winner.

I really have been able to get great products at a great price – and I feel great about the company.

  • Great prices
  • Great customer service (there have been a few bumps along the way, and each time they have made it right)
  • Integrity (they've even taken a loss on products that they offered that turned out to not be non-GMO)
  • Great product offerings with more coming all the time

And today, I am pleased to offer to one of my readers, a one year membership to the Green Polka Dot Box.

Membership, you say?  Yes – they are like the online organic and non-GMO Costco.

Typically the memberships are $50, so this is a great deal.

Great Prices:

There are some really good prices at the Green Polka Dot Box.  And sometimes they have special offers that make their prices even more amazing.  Like one month, they had these Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato Chips for only $.99.  We almost never buy processed foods, but at that price I snagged quite a few bags :-)!

Just to give you an idea of how much you can save (and so you can see that the membership fee is for sure worth it, here are a few quick comparisons of Green Polka Dot Box vs. Amazon's prices and at times I'll check another vendor.

1.  Lundberg Organic Short Grain Brown Rice.

  • Amazon Price:  $3.46 per pound, and you need to purchase 6-2 pound bags.
  • Green Polka Dot Box:  $1.43 per pound.  You only have to purchase a 2 pound bag!
  • Vitacost:  Not available

2.  Almond Breeze Almond Milk.  Unsweetened Original, 32 oz.


Now, I totally recommend that you save money and the environment by making the Easiest Almond Milk Ever, but if you are still wanting to buy it….

  • On Amazon,$3.98 per carton, and you need to purchase 12!
  • Green Polka Dot Box:  Regularly only $1.94. On sale now for $1.29!!  And you only have to purchase 1!
  • Vitacost: $2.43 per box.

3.  Bionaturae Organic Canned Tomatoes (more on BPA in these cans….But let me assure you that I researched this and am very comfortable with this option. I'll fill you in more later in a post!)

4.  If you prefer, you can get Bionaturae Strained Tomatoes and have no BPA at all.

  • Amazon:  Not available
  • Green Polka Dot Box:  $3.16 per bottle
  • Vitacost: $3.29
5.  Bottled Organic Lemon Juice from Dream Foods.
      I use this all.the.time.  See Sugar Free LemonadeHomemade “Jello” and Moroccan Vinaigrette).
      I LOVE this juice.  My former neighbor drinks it straight :-).

  • Amazon:  $10.36 per bottle and you need to purchase 6 of them to get that price!
  • At Green Polka Dot Box, it's only $5.29 per bottle (it's on sale, but their regular price is only $5.50)
  • Vitacost: Not available

Now–don't get me wrong.  I love Amazon and Vitacost and I regularly shop at both.  I'm just saying that adding Green Polka Dot Box to your arsenal of low price shopping options is a great idea.  It has been for us.
Some of the products that I purchase regularly are:

  • Bionaturae Tomatoe Paste
  • Bionaturae Diced Tomatoes
  • Bionaturae Crushed Tomatoes
  • Lundberg Organic Brown Rice
  • Lundberg Organic Brown Basmati
  • Nielsen Massey Almond Extract
and they have other great products like
  • seeds from Southern Seed Exchange
  • Spectrum Palm Shortening
  • Pamela's Baking Mix
  • Once Again Almond Butter (Of course, I recommend Making Your Own Almond Butter, but I've heard that this brand is great!)
Just buy a number of these things and quickly you will take care of your 1 year membership fee!
I love that you can get super prices without buying a whole case of an item like you need to at Amazon.  (I like Amazon, but sometimes I just don't want a case. And that's saying a lot for this bulk-buying mama! – Have you seen my guest post on Frugal Pantry Storage?

    Speak Your Mind


  1. I too thought GPDB would be a great company to get healthy food from. Unfortunately, I am seriously disappointed in the lack of customer service by GPDB. I joined and paid a membership fee with the guarantee that my first order would be given a 50% discount. This was refused because GPDB said the discount had expired, even though they made no mention nor sent out any notice of it having an expiration date.

    A business cannot just ignore an offer whenever they get tired of fulfilling their promise without even notifying their members that there is an expiration date on the offer. This is not acceptable and it bears a lot of similarity to the illegal “bait and switch” type of advertising.

    I cannot believe that GPDB will not honor the agreement offered to me when I signed up and paid my $50 membership. If GPDB does not have to abide by the agreement, then why should I have to? Either my promised 50% discount should be given on my first order or my $50 membership fee should be returned to me, as it was obtained by GPDB under false pretenses.

    I have to ask, is this the kind of company you want to be affiliated with? How much would it really hurt them to honor the promise they made to the few people who joined under it? I thought you would like to know that GPDB is not living up to their advertising promises and if you are promoting them, this could reflect back negatively on you and your site.

    • Hi Joan. Sorry you are having an issue with them. When were you given that discount promise and do you have an email that mentions it? I have had really good customer service from them so I am surprised at this. Thanks and please let me know.

  2. From what I can tell, there’s a difference of $1.60 between the Amazon price and The GPDB price. Unless the price has changed again.

    I see more comments not referring to the price – maybe I’m missing that part. Perhaps it’s because the rafflecopter widget’s not showing up for me right now, so if I can get it to show up later, I’ll check and see if I’m supposed to comment further. 🙂

    • Sorry -the giveaway is closed – but I will try to do another one in the near future :).

      • Wow. I can see that now; the date should have clued me in. I just saw the link on my Facebook feed and figured I should check it out.
        Shows that it was posted just tonight, not even an hour ago. But it links to this post. Maybe worth taking a look at, in case someone posted the wrong link?
        Have a great day!

  3. Oh probably the coconut flour, some coconut oil, and maybe the pumpkin seeds. I really could find so many…

  4. Thanks! I would like to get vanillla beans, no-stir-natural-sunflower-butter and sun warrior vanilla protein powder. :-). Good luck everyone, buti sure hope I win!!!

  5. Samantha says:

    I wish you didn’t require an email subscription to enter your giveaways. I read faithfully in Google Reader, but just can’t bear any more email in my inbox. I have to save that for other areas in my life.

    • Hi Samantha. I completely understand. You can set up an email filter to put all emails w/ certain characteristics into a certain folder and then go back to read them later. I need to do that myself. Thanks for understanding. Too many folks dump into the reader and don’t read and I really want my real readers to get the freebies.

  6. I would likely purchase evaporated cane juice, almond milk, and snack foods

  7. Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap
    Spectrum Refined Coconut Oil
    Bionaturae Strained Tomatoes

  8. …along with the raw cacao powder and the palm shortening.

  9. The tomato paste sounds great!

  10. tomatoes & tomato paste, pumpkin seeds, palm shortening….looks like there is lots of things!

  11. I’d buy spices/herbs, Bionature tomato products, and seeds.
