  1. My advice would be first to check prices and then reviews.

  2. Read the reviews first and keep an open mind.

  3. Reviews From Other Customers That Have Subscribed Then Decide What Is The Best 4 U !!! Tsvm 4 The Chance 2 Win !!!

  4. Read the reviews, look up the spoilers, ask yourself how many items in this box will I actually use because it is not a great value unless you will use enough of the items in it to make it cost effective. Then look for coupons and discount codes. Make the bigger commitments on Black Friday or Cyber Monday to save even more and stay within your budget.

  5. I got the mega jellies reading this. Goodbye money.

  6. READ THIS SITE! lol. I have learned so much from Liz and the team.

  7. My advice is to read past reviews and only subscribe to subscription boxes with products that you love.

  8. I picked put my couple from watching a whole lot of YouTube lol I’d watch an unboxing for like a year straight of openings so I can really see what it’s like

  9. Another reason to love this website! If only I could afford all the boxes 😂

  10. I would give the advice to check out a few months worth of reviews and see if they are a right fit for you or for the price.

  11. My advice is to keep an eye out for Black Friday sales!

  12. Besides reading reviews of course, you might want to set yourself a spending cap for the month. It’s soooo easy to all of a sudden have a few hundred dollars of subscriptions, which is great, but the credit card bills, not so much.

    Also, swapping here on MSA. That way when you get some items you don’t care for, you can swap them with someone else who has what you want.

  13. Read reviews and always look for a coupon for your first box.

  14. Definitely read reviews, check out the brands they promote, check their social media presence, and really know what you’re subscribing to before you have over the money!

  15. Check for promos!

  16. Read reviews. Go to various sources and read all the reviews you can about a subscription. Be sure to check dates on reviews, too – some services get better and others get worse.

  17. My advice:
    *Read reviews, MSA is a great resource for this.
    *Start small, maybe a cheap sub to see how you like it.
    *Understand the terms of the subscription before you purchase. Unfortunately many people don’t understand what they’re buying and get really upset when their expectations are not met. So be an informed consumer!
    *Get your money’s worth. If you won’t use the products it’s not a good deal. So don’t get sucked into the excitement of a bargain if you don’t use or like the products.
    *Enjoy what you receive. If it’s becoming overwhelming or a financial strain, cancel and put your money elsewhere. There’s nothing wrong with using the products you have and taking a break now and then.
    *Try new things. Maybe step out of your comfort zone and try something new. It might become your favorite!
    *Be a part of MSA and let us know your thoughts about a sub. Help out a fellow addict. 😉

  18. Do your research and loo up reviews!

  19. Really been trying to cut back subscriptions but this one is practically screaming my name!!

  20. Check reviews and try to not have FOMO if you decide to subscribe to a box.

  21. I would suggest to not go all crazy and order 16 boxes a month as I did. Pace yourself! A few boxes a month is more than enough, or else you’ll end up with more stuff than you’ll know what to do with…

  22. Have a budget lol

  23. Don’t try subs if you have an addiction personality or if it runs in your family. Stay away…. but there are worse things to be addicted to.

  24. Don’t go too crazy at the beginning or you will end up with product overload.

    Bonus: Skip the Ipsy’s, birchbox’s, etc. if you are going to get a box that offers full size products. Otherwise, things like ipsy are a good place to start.

  25. Check reciews, set a budget and select boxes that contain items you will actually use rather than get them for fomo.

  26. Love the scents!

  27. Check out mysubscriptionaddiction! And look at past boxes, read comments and reviews about the subscription box.

  28. Buy month to month. Don’t buy 6 month or yearly subscriptions.

  29. Hi Liz! Thanks for the great contest! Tried to sub to this, hoping for the summer box but it had just sold out. Darn…. fingers crossed for some luck here! 🙂

  30. I’m actually rather new to subscription boxes. But I would suggest startinf with low cost box,find discount coupons, and definitely check out past revies of the boxes on MSA to see what types of items you can expect. And find out about cancellation policies in case you find rhe subscription is not for you.

  31. Always read reviews. That is number 1. Don’t commit more money than you have to the hobby of subscription boxes. And, they aren’t all a good deal. If you aren’t using enough of the stuff and trading it away it’s not a good deal. Postage is costly.

  32. My advice to someone who wants to try a subscription box 8s to do some research on my subscription addiction. Look at a box you are interested in and see the items they released for the last couple of boxes to see if you meets your interests or needs. If so jump in and adjust your budget accordingly so there are no surprise withdrawals in the coming months

  33. Coupon first and check their cancelation/skip policy!

  34. I’m new to subscription boxes. I’d love to win this one!

  35. To anyone that wants to try sub boxes, this site is a great resource to get the feel for boxes, and to get info on great deals, sales, spoilers, etc.

  36. Awesome! So excited to see someone win this!

  37. This box looks amazing! I would absolutely love all of the products.

  38. My advice: read a few months worth of reviews before subscribing and wait for an offer with a coupon.

  39. I would advise to always read the reviews and for past boxes, make sure that you see at least 3 products in past boxes that may be of interest to you and useful, always read the comments section for past reviews and current for the box your interested in, set a budget as well as log in a journal every box you sub to and include price as well as wether you found the products useful and interesting to you so you don’t get overwhelmed and or spend too much on boxes that you didn’t like. Lastly don’t forget to cancel any box you didn’t like immediately because i have forgotten in the past and ened up with boxes i didn’t want. I do this every month because i am subscribed to at least 10 sub boxes currently and love it because i rarely need to go shopping for beauty/lifestyle products 🙂 I’m so excited for this giveaway as i was looking up Margaret Elena sub boxes today and am really interested in trying it out. Fingers crossed. Thank you for this amazing opportunity. Good luck to everyone.

  40. Make sure you are subscribing to a box that gives reasonable ARVs.

  41. Read the MSA reviews!

  42. Pay close attention to the ratings and subscriber comments.

  43. I would advise someone who is new to subscription boxes to read reviews and to think about what they want because there is a box for any intrest.

  44. Reading reviews and comments on MSA of boxes you’re interested in would probably give you more than enough information. I would also suggest generally avoiding mystery boxes unless you’re really prepared for disappointment – in my own experience and from comments I’ve read, they usually don’t seem to go over too well.

  45. I would say start with some of the cheaper ones. Read all the reviews so you know what to expect. Once you get started doing that you will want to get more and more:)

  46. I would recommend looking at reviews from several sources to get different viewpoints and see what variations you may get. Actively look for the negatives on any box company so you know what type of issues to expect and also so you can avoid any problems that you personally hate having to deal with. Always check to see if there are any deals or codes before purchasing (speaking of which, the code 302018 is still working for either an annual sub or one box from Margo Elena).

    Also, try to set a budget and hold to it…and then curse FFF add-on and edit sales for completely blowing that budget out of the water even though you are on product overload and shouldn’t even be looking (while at work no less).

  47. How exciting!! I just read the review for this a few days ago and was sad to see it sold out. I’m crossing everything I’ve got hoping to be the lucky recipient!!

  48. Don’t over commit to lots of months
