February Subscriptions – Pick or Skip Reminder

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Pick or Skip Subscription Boxes

Since there are quite a few subscriptions that allow you to pick your box/item or skip that month, I thought it would be helpful to do a reminder post at the beginning of the month just so you aren’t charged your monthly fee if you forget to skip.

JewelMintShoeMintStyleMint, IntiMint – Skip by the 5th

JustFab, FabKids – Skip by the 5th

Fabletics – Skip by the 10th

ShoeDazzle – Skip by the 5th

Adore Me – Skip by the 5th

Bespoke Post – Skip by the 5th

Cypress and 5th – Opt out by the 5th

Ellie – Skip by the 7th (Call in – (888) 926-9615)

Little Black Bag – Skip by the 5th

If there are any other subscriptions I’m missing, let me know and I’ll add them to the list!

  1. Just became a member of ShoeMint, and I can’t find the “skip this month” button for the life of me. Would someone tell me where the button is located?

  2. This is a great service! Thanks, Liz.

    Is Ellie the 7th for everyone, or is it individual? I haven’t received any emails yet from them this month, and in January they sent my “last chance” email on the 14th.

    The calling in to skip is a hassle. That may be the deciding factor on whether to keep Ellie or Fabletics.

    • I had a tough time getting the details from Ellie’s site. I decided the 7th was the safest day to put on this list based on this info from their support page:

      “From the release of each collection, you will have a week to select which two pieces you want for that month’s subscription. You will be charged when you select your two pieces and proceed to checkout.

      If you do not select and purchase two pieces by day 8, you will be auto billed and two surprise pieces will be selected for you based on your style quiz preferences.”

  3. What a great reminder list. Very thoughtful of you to do this for us. Thank you.

  4. Thanks for the reminder. For some reason, my JustFab boutique never reflects my selections. For example, I never ask for 4+ inch heels, but they always put some in my boutique (I could so not walk in those). I always end up skipping.

    The thing is, they have great shoes, otherwise. I’ve bought 6 pairs. I’m wearing some of their $20 flats right now. The stuff I like just never shows up in my boutique. So I usually wait for sales or else search for something I need (like neutral heels).

  5. Thanks for the reminder. However, I can’t seem to find where I could skip a month on little black bag. Help!

    • I found the “Skip Month” button at the very top and center bar of the site. Hope that helps!

  6. Great post! Julep would be a good one to add!

    • Another vote for adding Julep. They’re actually harder to remember because it’s on the 20th vs. everyone else starting at the beginning of the month.
      (Maybe you’re waiting til the 18th/19th to remind us? 🙂 )

  7. Club W and Naturebox both have a skip option as well.

  8. Thanks for doing these reminder posts.

  9. Thank you for posting this reminder!! So helpful and beneficial since I didn’t see anything in my Fabletics collection worth trying!

  10. Honest company! You set your own date, but if you haven’t picked our skipped, they do auto send out.

  11. Thank you! You just reminded me about little black bag and adore me! Trying to buy a house!

  12. Good list. Julep is the one I always forget to skip. Also, Wantable lets you skip too.

  13. This was very timely! Thank you! Just discovered a serious sewer problem in basement this morning. Need to skip as much as I can for this month!

  14. For Fabletics, you have until the 10th to skip!

    • Oh thanks! Updating the post!
