I was lamenting on IG Stories about how expensive fresh berries are here in Jakarta, and a kind follower suggested ordering them from SayurBox instead. I’ve actually seen ads for SayurBox on various social media platforms before, but somehow never got round to trying it out, so I quickly downloaded the app to take a look at what it had to offer.
To my great delight, blueberries were on sale (IDR39,500, reduced from IDR79,000) and I quickly added a punnet to my cart. A punnet of strawberries cost IDR49,500, which was a really good deal, considering how they cost between IDR79,000 to IDR135,000 at the supermarkets I frequent.
The app is fairly easy to use, even though my Bahasa isn’t great. I spent a bit of time just browsing the various options, and it really wasn’t difficult to hit the minimum amount of IDR100,000 for free delivery, thanks to the relatively wide selection, plus really good prices. My only regret is not ordering more items in my first order, since they give a 25% cashback for the first order. You’ll need to place your order and make payment one or two days before the delivery date, to allow them to harvest the items you’ve ordered, so SayurBox is a good option when you’re not in a hurry to receive your fresh fruits and vegetables.
What the app looks like
My first order
So far, I’ve ordered about four times from SayurBox, and I have no complaints at all. There is usually at least one free item in our box, and on one occasion, when they did not manage to harvest one of the items in my order, they gave me a refund in the form of a voucher, and included an apology note. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that they included three more free items, and the cost of those items was definitely way more than my missing item’s.
An apology note with the next delivery that had missing items
I’ve been getting most of my fruits and vegetables from SayurBox ever since I discovered how convenient it was, and I usually wait till the blueberries go on sale, and buy the maximum three punnets each time. N and Meimei love blueberries, so they can finish a punnet in one sitting, if I let them! My helper also likes the salak, and says that the mushrooms and vegetables that we’ve received have all been really fresh and good. We did think that the baby watermelon had way too many seeds, but apart from that, everything else has been excellent.
