The Ultimate Guide to Monthly Subscription Boxes

Are you interested in starting a jewelry box subscription? With so many subscription boxes out there, it can be super difficult and even impossible to figure out if they are always a good deal. It’s important to look at specific subscription boxes, including their content, rules and cost, to figure out whether it is a good deal and value for you personally. To determine whether a subscription box is a good deal for you, ask yourself the following questions to help make your decision:

 

  • Are these items I can actually use? One of the most important things to determine before you actually sign up for a monthly subscription box is whether or not you will actually use the items in it. And figure out if you will actually use everything you receive. With some subscription boxes, it’s easy to figure out, because you know exactly what you’re getting. But with other subscription boxes, you are not exactly sure what to expect. But you can usually get a good idea of what to expect from a subscription box by reading reviews online. These reviews usually have clues about what items the subscription box has held over the past few months, so you can determine if it’s the right box for you.
  • How does the cost compare to retail? Once you figure out what is in a typical box, you can compare the prices of those items on retail sites. Add up all of these typical prices to figure out what the contents are worth and compare it to the subscription price. And don’t forget to add in the cost of shipping if applicable.
  • Is it more than I need? A box is just not a good value if you end up buying more than you would typically buy or want. If you’re spending more money than you normally spend on these items, it’s not a steal.
  • How much control do I have? Some subscription boxes send the same exact monthly box to every subscriber, while others tailor the content of the box to your personal tastes and preferences based on a survey you fill out when you sign up. And some subscription boxes even allow you to preview the box before it’s shipped and skip that month if you don’t want the box. You might even be able to choose some or all of the items you receive in the box.
  • What is the return policy? With many subscription boxes, you are simply stuck with whatever you receive in the box. But others allow you to return items you don’t want. So make sure to check the fine print about the return policy before signing up for the subscription box.

How difficult is it to cancel? If you just don’t know whether or not a box is a good value for you, you could try it for a month, then decide. Most subscription boxes provide a month-to-month subscription plan, but it can sometimes be difficult to cancel your subscription, so make sure you check out the cancellation policy before signing up.
