MABON SABBAT BOX - NEW SHIPPING DATE: MONDAY SEPTEMBER 18th
We just wanted to follow up with you to let you know that as of today, Sabbat Box and Eclectic Artisans has gone back to our normal operating schedules. We sincerely thank each of you for all of your thoughts, compassion and prayers prior to the storm. Please see below for further updates...
MABON SABBAT BOX DELAYS:
The 2017 Mabon Sabbat Box ship date has been pushed to Monday September 18. Last week, prior to Hurricane Irma's impact to our area, we were estimating that we would have Mabon Sabbat Boxes shipped out by Friday September 15th. Unfortunately, we are still waiting on the delivery of the Mabon Sabbat Box brochures before we can ship boxes, (which are due in for delivery this evening on 9/15).
Much of Florida and the Southeast is still dealing with residual impacts caused by Hurricane Irma. Things like power outages, flooding and gas shortages are specifically causing delays in shipping and deliveries to the Southeast region of the U.S. amongst the various shipping couriers. We will be receiving your Mabon brochures Friday afternoon on the 15th, and will begin finalizing the packing of boxes tomorrow (Saturday 9/16), to ship them on Monday 9/18.
The majority of you will still receive your boxes on or before Mabon (9/22), which is always our goal at Sabbat Box. We apologize for the extenuating circumstances and thank you in advanced for your patience and understanding during these particularly challenging times.
TEXAS, FLORIDA, SOUTH CAROLINA, AND GEORGIA MEMBERS/CUSTOMERS:
If you are a Sabbat Box member located in any of the above listed states and are currently in a situation where you cannot receive any mail or shipments of your Sabbat Box due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma, please contact us here and let us know. We can make arrangements to hold or delay the shipment of your Sabbat Box
AFTER THE STORM:
Thankfully, here in Pinellas County, we made it through the storm much better than anticipated. Irma's final track pushed her inland sooner then expected, which prevented her from intensifying back into a CAT4 or 5, which spared Tampa Bay from complete and total devastation. Right now, there still are many businesses and homes in the area still without power, but in the grand scheme of things Pinellas County really lucked out.
Those that live in Naples, Miami, the Keys, Jacksonville and parts of South Carolina, Georgia, and The Virgin Islands, did not fare as well. Their impacts were much more severe, and brutal. We ask that you please keep these people in your thoughts and prayers as they begin to rebuild.

Again, we sincerely thank you for your understanding during these extenuating circumstances and appreciate your patience. We look forward to shipping your Mabon Boxes!

Hurricane Irma Update - Mabon Sabbat Box Shipping Delays 8
• HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE •
MABON SABBAT BOX - NEW SHIPPING DATE: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15th
HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE - AS OF 9/8/17 @ 11:30 A.M. EST.
Sabbat Box and our sister company Eclectic Artisans happens to be located in West Central Florida. We have been closely monitoring Hurricane Irma since this past Monday, Labor Day. Because of the storm's major shift westward in its projected track and its potential danger to our area, we have been forced to make preparations to deal with the coming inclement weather, which has ultimately effected our normal operating and subscription box shipping schedule.
Hurricane Irma is currently expected to effect our area from Saturday September 9th to Tuesday September 12th. Depending on how fast the storm moves through, it could be shorter, could be longer, which is why we have decided to move the shipping date for Mabon Boxes to September 15th. We may lose power and may not be able to reply back to you in reference to your purchases or questions after this weekend. PLEASE, WE ASK FOR YOUR PATIENCE IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES.
SHIPPING SCHEDULE CHANGE:
Mabon Sabbat Boxes were scheduled to be shipped out this coming Monday, September 11th. This is the same day Hurricane Irma is scheduled to effect our area the hardest. With that said, we have decided to push back the shipment of Mabon Boxes by 4 days to Friday September 15th.
We will be printing Mabon Box shipping labels either today or tomorrow. This will trigger a shipping confirmation email to you. Please know boxes WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL AT LEAST NEXT FRIDAY SEP. 15. We are doing this in case we lose power after the storm, which will allow us to still ship boxes.
All Eclectic Artisans and Sabbat Box store purchases after 9/8 at 11:00AM will not be processed and shipped until after September 15th. We thank you for your understanding.
We have made appropriate preparations here to protect ourselves and our businesses against the coming storm. We will keep you updated as time goes on and if anything were to change. Be sure to follow us on social media for further updates. We thank you for your understanding regarding these extenuating circumstances and look forward to shipping your Mabon Boxes.

Important-Sabbat Box Membership Price Change 0
It may be hard to believe, but Sabbat Box is about to celebrate its 2 year anniversary! Since March of 2014, Sabbat Box has been curating special boxes filled with unique magickal supplies in order to help each of our members further discover, connect with, and grow their own form of spiritual practice, while providing tools and inspiration to do such, inside each box that we ship. Since its inception, Sabbat Box has grown into a community of spiritual seekers looking to further enrich their spiritual journey, while bringing magick to the mundane world around them.
We are humbled and honored that you have decided to continue to bring Sabbat Box into your homes, hearts and spiritual practice. It has been an amazing journey that we have traveled, and we continue to look forward to celebrating the Wheel of the Year with you!
Please become acquainted with our new and updated pricing for Sabbat Box memberships below. Each of our active members should have received an email informing them of the price change on 1/24/17. We also will be including an insert with information on it inside the Imbolc Sabbat Box that is shipping 1/25.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time and we will be happy to help!

Sabbat to Sabbat Plans: $45.95 – re-billed every 45 days
½ Wheel Plans: $179.80 – re-billed every 26 weeks
Wheel of the Year Plan: $359.60 – re-billed once a year
- No action is required from you.
- These prices INCLUDE SHIPPING.
- The only thing changing is the price.
- The billing intervals for each membership plan is remaining the same.
- Sabbat Box will continue to ship out 8 boxes a year.
- You will continue to receive your boxes 7-10 days before each Sabbat.
- Price changes go into effect starting on our Beltane billing cycle - Feb. 8, 2017
This is the first time we have ever increased our prices since we started Sabbat Box two years ago.
WHY A CHANGE IN PRICE?
RISING SHIPPING COSTS
Since we started Sabbat Box 2 years ago, our overall costs to provide this service to the community has increased by almost 25%. The main contributor being the exponential rise in shipping costs – both a rise in costs of having products shipped here to us from suppliers, and the rise in costs to actually ship your Sabbat Boxes to you.
We strive to continue to make each Sabbat Box better than the last, while also maintaining a standard of quality our members have come to expect.
HOW DOES THIS HELP?
KEEPS SABBAT BOX GOING
This slight change in price will allow us to continue shipping Sabbat Boxes to our members without jeopardizing the quality of the products inside, or the quality of our service. This small increase will also allow us to hire staff, as well as expand and diversify the different boxes, products and services that we wish to offer you.
Since Sabbat Box started in 2015, roughly 2/3 of our original subscribers are still active members.
SABBAT BOX - A YEAR IN REVIEW...
SMALL BUSINESSES SUPPORTED
In 2016 we shipped out 8 Sabbat Boxes to you. You helped to support over 40 small businesses with your Sabbat Box membership this year alone, (that is roughly 5 separate businesses per box). Many of which were Pagan owned and operated. We continue to look forward to supporting both small and Pagan run businesses to curate your boxes.
Sabbat Box members for 2016 saved on average $19.53 on each box they received, and a total of $156.22 over the year. Another great reason to be a member!
IN SUPER SABBAT GIVEAWAYS
We had 7 Super Sabbat Giveaway winners this past year alone. The number shown above is the total value of the free Super Sabbat Boxes we have given away to our Super Sabbat Giveaway winners so far. In 2015, our first year of giveaways consisted of winners getting a special box of products (aside from regular Sabbat Boxes), and this past year the winners have been receiving a free Sabbat Box.

New Sabbat Box Member Portal With New Features 0
• NEW SABBAT BOX PORTAL AND FEATURES •
We want to let everyone know that we upgraded our subscription software and member portal over the July 4th holiday weekend. If you are a member of Sabbat Box, your Sabbat Box subscription account has been automatically migrated to our new system, but we need you to do one quick thing...update your password (see instructions below).
The new Sabbat Box member portal makes it even easier for you to manage your Sabbat Box subscription and it has some really handy new tools for you as well!
We thought we’d take a moment to highlight the sections of the new interface and highlight some of the important features and changes with our newly updated portal.
• YOU MUST RESET YOUR PASSWORD TO LOGIN TO THE NEW SYSTEM •
ALL MEMBERS MUST RESET THEIR PASSWORD ON THEIR ACCOUNT BEFORE LOGGING INTO THE NEW SYSTEM!
1. How to reset your password. As a security feature for the system upgrade, all members are required to reset their password when logging in for the first time on the new portal.
Visit: http://sabbat-box.paywhirl.com/login, or go to the top menu bar above and click on “Manage My Sabbat Box” on the Sabbat Box top main menu.
Your login e-mail is the same email address you already use to manage your subscription account.
2. Reset the password. After clicking the above link, you will see a login screen like the screenshot below. After entering your email address, click on the “Forget your password?” link at the bottom and you will be able to reset your password from there:
• NEW FEATURE - MEMBER DASHBOARD •
NEW FEATURE: Member Dashboard. You will notice upon logging into the new portal things have completely changed. We have implemented a new member dashboard and payment calendar, which is the main screen you will see after logging in to the new portal. The new dashboard displays an easy-to-see calendar allowing you to easily see when your Sabbat Box membership is set to renew again and when the next payment date will be. You can click the date you are scheduled to be re-billed and view all of the details pertaining to your box.
From here you also be able to access the main menu as well. Here’s a screenshot of the new member dashboard that shows what it looks like once you log in to the new portal:
• NEW FEATURE - SUBSCRIPTIONS SECTION •
NEW FEATURE: Subscription Details. This screen will allow you to see your current subscription, and info including when you were last billed and when your next billing is coming up. You can manage/change your plan by clicking on “Edit” or cancel your plan by clicking “Cancel”.
SUBSCRIPTION DETAILS CONT'D: If you click “Edit”, it will take you to the screen in the image below, which will allow you to change plans if you would like. Please note: you will be rebilled IMMEDIATELY upon choosing a new plan. You will also receive the remaining boxes owed to you for the previous subscribed plan you were on unless you contact us to let us know you would like to completely switch your plan, not just add an additional plan.
• NEW FEATURE - PAYMENT METHODS SECTION •
NEW FEATURE: Payment Methods. This menu item allows you to see your current card(s) on file, set one to default, or add (or delete) a card:
• NEW FEATURE - MY ADDRESSES SECTION •
NEW FEATURE: My Addresses. This screen will allow you to update your address. Please note that your current address (listed as “Account Address”) should be the billing address for the payment method you’ve added, so there will be no issues when you are rebilled. If you would like to add a secondary address for shipping, you can do that separately. You can also contact us at any time to update your shipping address as well.
• NEW FEATURE - BILLING HISTORY •
6. Billing History. This screen will allow you to see when past payments occurred, as well as when new payments will be attempted.
Billing History Continued....
Clicking on “View” for each transaction will display the invoice for that payment, which includes status, costs, and other details:
NEW FEATURE: Cart and Browse. The last two items on the portal’s main menu will allow you to add a new plan to your account if you would like. Just follow the steps and you will receive a confirmation email about your new plan. Again, please note: you will be rebilled immediately when you add a new plan.
This is a very brief introduction into our new upgraded subscription system. While this certainly will not answer all questions, we hope that our members have an easier time in navigating and seeing all of the pertinent information necessary to maintain their subscriptions. As always, if you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us or submit a support ticket via the "?" symbol on the bottom of each page.
We hope you enjoy the new updated portal.
Thank you so much for your membership, and we hope you continue to enjoy what Sabbat Box has to offer.
The Sabbat Box Team
