FAQs

What is Buckt?

Buckt is a monthly tickets and activities subscription box. Each month subscribers get 5 mystery things to do in their region delivered directly to their door.

The business is inspired by the idea of a bucket list: our aim is to help subscribers tick something off their list, to go on an adventure and to fall in love with something new.

What do I get with a subscription?

You get a Buckt Box delivered directly to your door. Each box contains 5 tickets and activities – things you can go and do in your region.

On average, our boxes include tickets and activities that would cost around £40 per person if bought separately. So, a Duo Box includes activities worth £80, but costs just £25. We regularly exceed this, with some boxes being valued at over £100pp.

Delivery is included, and there are no extra fees or hidden costs to complete the activities.

How much does Buckt cost?

Buckt costs:

  • £17 for an Individual Box (one person)
  • £25 for a Duo Box (two people)

 

This includes delivery, and there are no hidden fees or extra charges to complete the activities once you receive your box.

How long do I have to complete the activities in my box?

You have 6 weeks to book in and complete your activities.

Some activities will be on set dates (specifically shows or sports events), but on the most-part you will be able to complete them within 6 weeks of receiving the box.

Where does Buckt operate? Where are the activities?

Buckt currently operates in the ‘Greater Birmingham’ area meaning that all the activities are within this region. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear about our expansion!

When will the payment be taken out?

For those that signed up after 31st March 2018

An initial payment will be taken straight away and this is for your first box.

Your next payment will be taken out on the first day of the month of your next box (i.e. the payment for April’s box will come out on the 1st April).

You will then be charged every month on the first day of the month of your box.

Scenario:

  • If you’ve subscribed on the 17th April, an initial payment will come out on the 17th April. This will be for your first box, which you will receive in May. Your next payment after that will come out on the 1st June, and that will be for your June box.
For those that signed up prior to 31st March 2018

An initial payment will be taken out of your account within 2-4 working days and this is for your first box.

Your next payment will be taken out on the last day of the month preceding when you’re next box is due (i.e. the payment for March’s box will come out on the last day of February).

You will then be charged every month on the last day of the month preceding your next box.

Scenario:

  • If you’ve subscribed on the 4th February, an initial payment will come out within 2-4 working days. This will be for your first box, which you will receive in March. Your next payment after that will come out on the 31st March, and that will be for the April box and so on.

When will my box be delivered?

Your box will be received by the 3rd day of the month.

For new subscribers, your first box will be received on the 3rd day of the following month that you subscribed.

Scenario:

  • You subscribe on the 8th August. Your first box will be received by the 3rd September. Your next box will be received by the 3rd October. And so on.

Do you have a package specifically for businesses?

Yes! Our corporate offer is £12.50 per box for 5 activities. These boxes can be distributed to staff as rewards, can be used together as staff nights out or given to clients as a ‘thank you’ gift.

If I get a group of my mates/colleagues to sign up, will we get a discount?

Please get in contact with daniel@buckt.uk to discuss this further. Depending on group size, we may be able to offer a discount.

There's talk of Buckt being inspired by the idea of a bucket list. What does this mean?

The idea was originally inspired by our founder’s bucket list. It contained 100 activities – both big cliche bucket list activities, and small personal challenges.

Our founder Dan, spoke to different people about their own bucket lists and realised that they weren’t just about ticking things off a piece of paper, but actually pushing yourself to the limit, falling in love with something new, having an escape from routine and ultimate living life to its fullest.

These ideas encapsulate what Buckt is about. We want people to try new and exciting things; things they’ve never done before or even thought about doing. But actually, we want subscribers to have an escape from the humdrum of life. We want subscriber to find something that they enjoy and fall in love with it. We want subscribers to create unique memories that stick with them forever.

These were the things that motivated Dan to write his list, and have motivated him to complete what’s on it.

How can you deliver 'activities in a box'?

Easy peasy. Each box that you receive contains a specially-designed booklet that tells you what activities you can go and do during that month, as well as information on how you ‘access’ these activities. For example, you may need to book with us, we may provide physical tickets inside the booklet, or you may need to book directly with the activity provider.

How do I give Buckt to someone as a gift?

When you purchase, during checkout, you have the option of putting a different delivery address than the billing address. You also have the option to explain why you’re choosing a different delivery address: whether it’s because you’re sending it as a gift to someone else or not.

If you choose to say that it’s a gift, we will deliver it to the new address.

Please feel free to use the ‘order notes’ section to provide more information.

If I can't find exactly what I want or have any specific requests, can I contact you?

Yes! We’re more than happy to take specific requests and we will try to accommodate you to the best of our ability/as much as is practically possible.

Am I committed to my Buckt subscription? Can I cancel?

Every subscriber gets put on to a direct debit automatically, however you can cancel this at any time. You must give us a weeks notice before your next box is due, and can cancel by emailing daniel@buckt.uk.
