Subscription Boxes…Sweeping the Nation?

I’ve been a fan of Birchbox for a couple of years now.  Coming home to a Birchbox waiting on my porch is a special treat: it’s a handpicked mix of luxe beauty samples and other goodies.  I’ve discovered several gems by using the samples I get through Birchbox, but mostly it’s super fun to open the box and see the surprises inside.

I recently got an amazing deal on the PopSugar Must Have Box.  It’s a similar concept, but the products inside are a mix of beauty, fashion, lifestyle and food…right up my alley.  I was thrilled to open the first box.


It was seriously packed with goodies.  My favorite thing was a free dinner from the Pop Up Pantry worth $40!  I’m planning on using it while Josh is away on his business trip to make life a little easier on one of our crazy nights (soccer practice, saxophone lessons, drama club).

What I didn’t realize was that the subscription box is a fad that seems to be sweeping the nation.  I did a little research and learned that you can snag some great deals.  Snap one up and treat yourself!

Birchbox: $10/month.  However, if you give feedback each month on the products in your Birchbox, you earn points which you can redeem for full-size products.  You can earn 50-70 points a month, which translates into $5-$7.  So essentially the cost of the box is only $3-$5/month.

Pop Sugar Must Have Box: $35/month.  Use code OPRAH to get $10 off your first month.  I got a deal for my first month free…I suspect they might run another similar deal sometime soon in time for the Holiday season.  I’ll keep an eye out and post any updates here.

Lost Crates: $25-$48/month.  Use code TRYIT30 to get 30% off a crate.  I haven’t personally tried this one, but it looks enticing.  They’ve got a wide variety of crates to choose from and are very design-focused.  Intriguing.
