Looking for a new subscription to try without hurting your monthly budget? This list covers all the subscription boxes you can try for free!
Other websites include "free bonus month" or "free gift with purchase" offers where you have to pay for the subscription upfront, but not us: this list is strictly for free trial type offers. UPDATED on March 4th, 2019 with the most recent deals!
This list includes a number of categories including:
- Free Clothing & Accessories Boxes
- Free Snack Boxes
- Free Grooming & Personal Care Boxes
- Free Boxes for the Home
One thing to keep in mind – all these free offers start subscriptions, so make sure to read their terms carefully.
For most of these offers you will need to pay a small shipping fee, but they're still a great way to try these services for yourself before you subscribe:
Free Women's Clothing & Accessories Boxes
Rocksbox: First Month Free
Rocksbox is a monthly subscription box for jewelry rental! Receive 3 pieces of hand-selected jewelry in every box. Wear them as long as you like, and then return them in a pre-paid shipping envelope to swap them out for a new set. Members also receive a monthly “Shine Credit” they can use toward buying any pieces they want to keep.

Gwynnie Bee: First Month Free
Gwynnie Bee ($49 to $129 per month) is a clothing rental subscription service for women! They originally started with plus sizes only, but have since expanded to sizes 0-32. You select the pieces you want to try yourself and put them into your virtual closet, and Gwynnie Bee sends you new pieces every time you return the ones you currently have checked out. Members can also buy clothing at a discount if they decide they can't live without it. Prices vary depending on the number of items you want to receive at one time (1 to 10), and shipping and dry cleaning are included in the price– all you need to do is wear and return!
Clothing rental is perfect if you're between sizes, or on a budget while wanting to try new fashion trends, or even if you just want to try out a few new looks without commitment.
