Subscriber Survey: What Box Do You Recommend for Newbies?
Sunday Subscriber Survey time! This week’s subscription box question is:
What subscription box would you recommend to someone who is completely new to subscription boxes?
It’s a tough question for me! But here’s what I’m thinking:
First, I’d recommend a cheap monthly subscription box. (Something $10 or under.) Likely Birchbox or Ipsy. I think it’s always safe to start with an inexpensive subscription box to see if it’s right for you.
If someone has been subscribing to Birchbox for a while, they may be frustrated by repeat brands, but if you’re completely new to the world of subscription boxes, I think Birchbox is great for discovering amazing beauty brands.
And of course, Ipsy is such a great value and you’re likely to get full-size products each month.
Alternatively, I’d also recommend FabFitFun to start if you are open to spending a little bit more on your first box.
FabFitFun always provides a huge value compared to the cost, with a variety of full size items, so I think it will appeal to a lot of potential new subscribers. Even though it’s a higher price point than Birchbox and Ipsy, it’s only once a quarter. (FabFitFun is $49.99 a box, but only $39.99 for your first box with coupon code MSA10). And you can see FabFitFun reviews and FabFitFun spoilers before signing up so that should help minimize risk.
Plus, since it is quarterly, that gives you plenty of time to cancel if you decide subscription boxes aren’t for you after one box. But how could that happen? 😉
