MSA Forum – October Update + Welcome

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


In case you didn’t know, My Subscription Addiction has a forum where we talk about all things subscription boxes–spoilers, feedback, and more. 

We have a whole category dedicated to swaps, including tips and tricks related to the MSA swap site, best practices, a thread on optimizing shipping $ and using PayPal shipping, an In Search Of (ISO) thread which is remarkably effective at finding matches for elusive swap items, plus many other topics.


Sometimes we talk about subscription boxes In the News/Media. Most recently we discussed subscription boxes as a new shopping trend and saw MSA’s founder, Liz, featured in a TV station’s news story.


We are now wrapping up our first ever Trick or Treat box exchange which was a lot of fun. In this exchange, we swapped  names and sent each other themed boxes. At least one item in the box had to be from a subscription box to begin with. If you’d like to see some of the box reveal photos, click here.

Our Traveling Swap Box is on a tour around the USA. It started in Michigan in August and is currently en route to New Jersey. The latest spoilers from the box can be seen here.

Here is the Traveling Swap Box visiting Bay City, Michigan, and an in-person hand off in New York City.



In November, we will be starting signups for our next Secret Santa exchange so be on the lookout for that if you are interested in participating. 

There is a lot going on in the MSA Forum. Here is how to get to the Forum if you want to join us or just check it out:

    • Yay, congrats! 🙂

  4. How fun! I need to check it all out. Also the secret Santa exchange sounds really fun, I can’t wait to hear more about that next month! Thanks for the updates.

  5. Good to know – thanks for the info! I’m still on the waiting list for the swap section of this site, but it looks like the Discussion section is separate?

    • Yes, the Forum is totally separate from the Swaps part of MSA, but we do talk about swaps often. 🙂
