Many thanks to VolGal1919 for this site feature suggestion!

The idea: adding a way for everyone who uses the site to be able to rate any subscription box on different factors and share that rating with everyone.

I love this idea since the primary goal of this site has always been to help you find which boxes are best for you. You can now find this rating system with every box in the subscription box directory:

Since each reviewer on the site will only have their own experience to share on a box, I hope this helps give anyone considering a box a more well-rounded view of every aspect. (Also, if we are sent a box at no cost for review purposes, we can’t weigh in on things like customer care or ease of canceling a subscription).

Feel free to rate any box in the directory – it will be so helpful! You can also leave your comments to expand on your rating. And we designed the rating system so that you can go back and edit your star rating of any box at any time in case your experience with that box changes.

Next up, we’ll work on a way to pull this info into each blog post review! Let me know if you have any questions – and as always, any feedback on how we can make the site more useful is always so appreciated! Thanks again VolGal1919!

  1. This is great. I love that I can read and leave feedback on all the important parts of each sub. This is a huge help for us. Thanks Liz.

  2. Great idea! Love it.

  3. Thanks, Liz!! This is great! Will the ‘Average’ rating include a tally of the total number of folks that have submitted feedback? I think it would be very helpful to know whether the ratings were based on 200 or 2 users’ experiences. Love this site and appreciate all you do!! 🙂

    • Good idea, having the number of people who rated each box. Just like Trip Advisor.

  4. This is a great feature, thanks!

  5. Can we have a weed box category soon? I can think of at least three different cannabis subscription boxes.

    • This would be amazing! But I doubt they would do it.

  6. Yay! This is so awesome that you were able to stand this up, and so quickly! You really are the best, Liz! =o)

  7. Hi,

    I have a what might be a stupid question, but can someone explain to me what the “mine” category refers to?

    Thanks

    • Sounds like it would be your experience with the subscription vs the average rating of others.

  8. Omg I love how the rating for “Ease of Cancelling” is included. I hate having to call in and the CSR’s start to go into seller mode with the “Are you sure you don’t want to keep your subscription and only do it Quarterly” or “You can always skip your box for the month in your account settings”.

    • Ease of Cancelling is huge for me. Having to call during business hours when I’m working, wait on hold for a long time and then have them suggest that I don’t really want to cancel. I should then put my sub on hold and call back again to restart it, and again after that to cancel. It negates any good impressions I may have had of the subscription service. I’m very happy to see this included in the rating.
