Announcing the My Subscription Addiction Quarterly Box!

MSA Quarterly Box

If you subscribe to the newsletter, then you were the first to hear the news – today marks the launch of the My Subscription Addiction subscription box with Quarterly!

Through subscription boxes I’ve been able to sample hundreds of brands and products, and discovered so many new favorites. I’ve also learned a lot about what type of products work best for boxes, and now I get to put that knowledge to use in crafting the My Subscription Addiction Quarterly Box!

What you can expect from the box:

  • It will be a mix of beauty, lifestyle and fashion items.
  • My picks will all be ingredient conscious. For example, if I include a mascara in the box, it will be free of ingredients like parabens, or phthalates. If I include a candle, it will be free of ingredients like paraffin wax or synthetic fragrances.
  • This is a box geared toward women.
  • The box ships 4 times a year – the first month is September.

Use coupon code MSA5OFF to save $5 off you first box! (This offer expires tomorrow (6/19) at midnight PST.

Let me know what you think of the theme, and if you have any questions or suggestions. I’ve always been interested in what goes into making a subscription box, so I’ll be sharing my experience with you as well!

Of course, I won’t be able to do a regular review of this box, but I will do an unboxing post when it ships explaining why I picked each item. And if you subscribe and want to review the box let me know – we’ll do a link-up post to share reviews!

  1. What is the cost of this box? I looked a few places but I can’t find it anywhere 🙁

    • It’s $50 a quarter.

  2. Liz,

    If I pay on Sep, 3 will I get my quarterly box? When does payment normally deduct?

    Please please let me know because I really want the box. Thank you kindly!


  3. Will you post another coupon- I missed the deadline on this one.

    • I also missed the coupon … will there be another one? – When will there be a spoiler?

  4. I’m not sure if my other comment came through. Congratulations on being a curator. I signed up right away and used the code. I’m looking forward to the first box. Fall is my favorite season.

  5. I’ve been reading your blog for a little over a year and I really do love it even though, because of you, I now have 7…sometimes 8 subscriptions! I signed up for your box last night with the coupon code. I really believe after reviewing so many boxes, you have a good idea of what people want and I especially like the fact thatt its not just a makeup/skincare sub. I have a feeling its going to be a good mix of things just as Popsugar is, only with a more “natural” feel. I’m excited!

  6. This is so exciting! I totally spaced signing up last night – any chance you think there will be another coupon?

  7. Congrats again Liz, I’m soooo excited for you, I eagerly anticipate September. I just placed my order and I was thinking , I truly believe you will have if not the top , in the top three best selling boxes of Quarterly.

  8. Well this is SUPER exciting! Signed up and can’t wait till Sept!!!

  9. I saw the post yesterday and immediately signed up. I can’t wait for the first box! Congratulations on your accomplishment.

  10. Even tho i prefer makeup and skin care over typical quarterly type boxes, i took a leap of faith that your box would awesome! Thank you. Mine was $40. Not sure why but ok with me.

  11. Ordered…can’t wait to receive it! 🙂

  12. FYI – if you don’t get the subscription and just get a single box you are charged $8 shipping.
    Since you have a 3 month window to cancel seems like it’s a good idea to go ahead and get the subscription to save the $8 on top of the $5 coupon.

    • That makes sense Alyssa, thanks for pointing things out to the newbie 🙂

      Subscribed! This will officially be my very first subscription. Can’t wait to see what’s inside the box. I will be in suspense til Sept!

  13. Liz – what fantastic news.

    So I already signed up and MORE great news! The code works for your box, but it also worked on another subscription I tried (GQ) and when I saw that I cancelled Bill Nye and re-signed up and the code gave me $5 off that as well! So, code saved $15 today. Woot! Woot!
    I love that with Quarterly they don’t charge up front, and that you can cancel up front if you change your mind.

  14. This is awesome, congratulations! Will you be reviewing your own box? 🙂

  15. Sooooooo EXCITED for you!!!! I bet this will be my new favorite subscription box. Just ordered it!!!!! Yay!

  16. I saw the email you sent out and couldn’t believe it! So happy for you Liz, congratulations 🙂

  17. I shop all the great mystery sales you post and drool after most of the subscriptions you post but I’ve never made the jump for any box, let alone one of this value, until I saw that you were running it. I didn’t even have to think twice! I signed up to get the full subscription…so pumped!

  18. Congrats! Sounds exciting!! I may have to figure out how to explain to my husband that I need this. I do have to ask though…are there going to be clothing items? I only ask because i am not a size 4 like everybody else around here. =P

    • Everything in the box will be non-sized, so no clothing items. I want this box to work for everyone! 🙂

  19. This is delightful! It just makes sense that someone who gives me the best info on boxes should have their own subscription! I’m so excited. I’ve come to rely on your reviews and updates so I always feel like I’m ahead of the curve.

    I bet you never imagined when you first started blogging that it would turn into THIS! Congratulations, and keep up the great work.

  20. Yay!!! I am so excited for this – just signed up – i am a huge fan of this site!! Congrats!

  21. I signed up immediately and have never been so excited about a subscription box before! We have very similar taste: I’m all about natural, simple style, and cruelty-free. I’ll be reviewing it on my blog when it arrives. Congratulations, Liz! You deserve it!

    • Thank you so much – I can’t wait to read your review! 🙂

  22. This is awesome! Congrats to you – love the blog, you deserve all the success. I haven’t gotten a Quarterly box in a long time but I signed up for this one immediately. Very excited to see what you send out. Is it September yet?? 🙂

  23. So awesome Liz, you’re the reason why I am now addicted to monthly boxes! You totally deserve this. I’m going to sign up for yours right now, can’t wait!

  24. Just signed up Liz! I can’t wait!!!! I’ve been trying to find a sub box that wasn’t just beauty oriented, but haven’t found the one that interests me before now!

    PS…please no “nail wraps”! 🙂

  25. Congratulations Liz! I am soooo happy for you. I am definitely signing up. You have put a lot of effort into My Subscription Addiction and all your success is well deserved!

  26. Thank you so much Liz! With your experience with the best and worst in boxes, I’m sure your curation is going to be incredible!

  27. Signed up and…..can’t wait!

  28. Ahhh! I can’t wait to see what you’ve picked out! I am so glad I canceled FFF leaving me that money to get this box for the Fall. Will there be spoilers? What will the value of the box be? So, so excited!

  29. Was there a shipping fee when everyone signed up? I was starting to place my order and noticed it was showing a shipping cost, but on the homepage it stated free shipping. I didn’t finish placing the order yet, thought I’d ask about it first.

    • Shipping should be free to the US. If you click “Buy One” instead of subscribe you do have to pay shipping though. Hope that helps!

      • That explains it…I did just click the Buy One button because (need to share with you) that this will be my very first ever subscription box purchase!!!

        I just discovered your site a few days ago when I was looking to find info about subscription boxes. I was happy to find your site, it was just what I needed, very helpful information!
        I have been on a waiting list forever for Ipsy (figured I’d start out small) but tired of waiting so started looking into other subscriptions that you reviewed. Then a few days later I received this email about the box you are going to curate (know nothing about Quarterly) and figured why not start with one from an expert! Although I will probably be spoiled to other subs after starting out with yours 🙂
        One more question, do you think if I only buy the one box now, that I will have a hard time getting your other boxes if I choose to later?
        Thanks for all your info!

    • Mine included tax, but not shipping.

      • Kristi, did you get the subscription or did you get just buy one?

  30. CONGRATS, LIZ!!!! You are definitely THE expert on subscription boxes, you are going to do a great job! I’m so grateful for the resources you provide to us that there is no way I will miss an opportunity to support you. (I already always check your site first for a referral link anytime I sign up for a new box. You deserve it, you work very hard.)

    I know quarterly boxes usually have a value that is about the same cost as the box, I hope you are able to work some magic and make it a little bit more of a good deal.

    I would love if you had lots of home and lifestyle items in there. I happen to not wear makeup, but even if I did, there are soooo many makeup and fashion boxes. There are not many with home and lifestyle items. And, you can tell on your own swap board that home items seem to be some of the most requested/hard to swap for items. (Those turkish towels and olive oils from PS seem equivalent to gold on the swap board. And I’ve been desperately trying to get my hands on that Fancy box squirrel pillow, but no one is even posting theirs for swap.)

    Whatever you choose, I know it’ll be the best of the best.

    Good luck and congrats!!

  31. I subscribed! I can’t wait to see what you’ll pick to be in the boxes! How exciting! Congrats! 😀

  32. Woohoo, congrats, Liz! I am totally in! I am just thinking about to gift a box to my favorite colleague as she’s currently on her maternity leave. I would this would be a great gift!

  33. Let’s see if I truly understand what’s going on here…no longer content to enable subscription addiction indirectly, you’re now moving into direct enabling/supplying? Whatever…it worked; I’m looking forward to getting my first Liz Cadman/MSA Quarterly box in about three months or so. (I would like to point out that, traditionally, when getting people hooked on something, the first one’s usually free, but a 10% discount is nice, too.)

  34. This is the perfect match like Reese’s Peanut Butter cups! Congratulations! I am really psyched to see what your sub box will bring! Signed up for it and can’t wait. You introduced me to my addiction and obsession with Golden Tote and Pop Sugar Must Have – as well as a bunch of others and it all started with Birchbox.

  35. Congrats, Liz! This is such great news – made my day to read this post! I LOVE that you’re going to natural route with your box! Because of this and that I’ve been a reader of your blog for so long, I signed up! Can’t wait to see what’s inside!

  36. Will the money come out of my account now or when it ships?

    • When it ships. (I signed up last night and got a notification that said that.)

  37. Congratulations Liz! I think I may have to sign up soon! BTW Cate and Chloe is on sale at living social for $20 and living social has a coupon code for 20% off so you can get the box for around $16

    • What is the code? Can you provide the link?

    • Thank you for posting this! My total was $17, the code was automatically applied.

    • Lynsey, if you are comfortable giving your full name I would love to put you as the one who referred me. The C&C site says you and I would both get 10% off moving forward. ( I would use. Liz, but I’m guessing she already has had a referral.)

  38. This is really great news. I am so happy for you and I am very excited to receive my first box! I signed up for a subscription right away. I love your site and know that you will have a great box. Best of luck!

  39. This is just great and congratulations to you. I wish there was a separate box for each three category at lower price. I am most interested in beauty so for me fashion and lifestyle items may go to waste.

    • Hi Saira! If you haven’t already done so, you might want to consider signing up for the swap feature. There is a wait list, but once you are in you will love it! You can trade the items that you aren’t interested in for more of the ones that you are. Even if you don’t sign up for this particular box, it’s a great feature because if you subscribe to ANY box, there’s bound to be an item here or there that you’re just not that into, or wish that you had something from a box that you don’t get. I just wanted to throw that out there for you in case you didn’t know about it 🙂

  40. Congrats! This is so awesome. I’m definitely going to check this out. I’m moving in August (not certain where), but want to take advantage of this discount. Is it easy to go in and change my address as necessary before the box ships in September (assuming I edit the address before the 1st, or whenever their deadline is)?

  41. Congratulations, Liz!! I signed up as soon as I received the email. I read as many of your reviews as I possibly can on a regular basis and have discovered some great boxes and some not-so-great-I-should-stay-away-boxes. I know with your expertise and knowledge of what we all like to find in our boxes, this one is going to be fabulous!!! And, the extra bonus of a coupon code is a definite plus!!

  42. Congratulations Liz, and best of luck. Just placed my order.
