Loot Crate is an international subscription box service which has been going for almost a decade now. In other words, they are a subscription e-commerce platform which providers subscribers with boxes of exclusive and licensed gaming and geeky merchandise on a monthly basis.
Loot Crate is based in Los Angeles and works with some of the largest and most established brands in sport, gaming, and entertainment, according to Lootsie.com.
Specifically, the company was founded in 2012 by Matthew Arevalo and Chris Davies, and they are in the process of changing the firm’s name to “The Loot Company”, following its sale to Money Chest LLC last year.
Loot Crate currently sends out millions of crates each year to its subscribers in 35 countries scattered across the globe.
Arevalo and Davies launched Loot Crate to provide customers with a “comic convention in a box”, as they put it. Their service quickly proved to be a hit, with Loot Crate racking up in excess of 200,000 subscribers in its first two years, earning it first place on the Deloitte Fast 500 North America List and Inc’s list of Fastest Growing Private Companies in the world.
What’s in the Crates?
Each crate is theme-based, and Loot Crate covers a wide range of themes, including “Fantasy”, “Future”, and individual book and movie franchises. They collaborate with various leading comic brands and video gaming companies, including the likes of Marvel and Nintendo, to give subscribers access to the best and hottest merchandise.
Every crate that is sent out contains a great selection of thematic merchandise, and there are many different options to choose from, such as:
