Lifestyle Boxes

CAUSEBOX is offering their best deal of the year on annual subscriptions (and a great deal on quarterly subscriptions, too):

CAUSEBOX is one of the most popular lifestyle boxes that we cover on My Subscription Addiction. Each quarterly box contains 6-8 full-size, ethically-made products chosen for each season. While they have offered a $25 “intro” box earlier this year, the last time CAUSEBOX offered a full box for $29.95 was about a year ago. (Intro boxes usually have fewer items than regular season boxes.)

  • If you’re looking for an annual subscription:
    • For a limited time, use coupon code FREEBOX or BF20-A to get one box FREE when you sign up for an Annual subscription!
    • (Annual subscriptions are normally $199.80, but if you sign up now, you’ll only be charged $149.95. This brings your price per box for the annual subscription down to just $37.49.)
  • If you’re looking to pay each quarter:
    • Use coupon code BF20 to get your first CAUSEBOX for $29.95! (Regularly $54.95 per quarter)

If you sign up now, The Winter Box will be your first box. (See the first four spoilers here to see what’s inside!)

There’s no expiration date on this offer, so it could end at any time.

  1. Hello

    I am not able to get mel physics discount. It shows as first box free and total as $34. Its basically like buy1 and get1 free. Is there a code to get the discount mentioned above.

    • Hi June, I believe if you read the fine print, it’s trying to show you how much your next box will cost. It explains above the checkout that your first box is free and then shows your billing date for the $34. Hope that helps!

  2. I only picked up a few things, none were subs though:

    Two Origins sets from Macy’s that included two GWP (received $10 Star Cash for no-rush shipping).

    The Ipsy “Best of Makeup Box”–I need mascara and I thought the Mac lipstick shade was really pretty. The palette is a new brand for me, so I am excited about that.

    One of the $10 sample bags at Sephora so that I could get my birthday Bum Bum cream lol.

    A sleeping mask at Ulta with my $10 birthday credit.

    With gift cards and birthday credits, I only used “real money” on the Ipsy and Sephora order lol. I still have a ton of points to spend at Ulta because I will not be making Platinum this year, I just have too much stuff.

  3. Was thinking of getting allure yet the next billing would be in a few days. I was able to talk myself out of it. Yay!

  4. It should be noted that the Always pans from Our Place are not expected to ship until MID-FEBRUARY. I considered purchasing before noticing that. I understand that things are slowed down due to COVID, but it is a bit ridiculous for this company to advertise during Black Friday sales without any intention of shipping for nearly three months.

    • They sell out constantly so those that really want it should jump on this deal. They rarely offer discounts. I bought one a few months ago, what a fantastic pot!

  5. I got:

    Pusheen (buy one get one free past box)

    Causebox (annual w/ first box free after discount) (all killed their market sale & got another $40 off that order)

    FabFitFun (extra bonus box free)(also killed their edit sale & got the free bundle)

    New Beauty Test Tube ( 30% off annual)

    LOL Surpirse (25% off first box)

    Birchbox Holiday Picks Oribe Travel Kit (ended up being only $20 after automatic discount after I added the $10 free sample pack on $35+ orders)

    GlossyBox (2 for $20 on the Past beauty boxes + $15 for Summer Limited Edition)

    I tried to snag the Fenty Megan set for $35 that was posted but it kept changing to $49 when i went to check out, now no longer showing for $35 but I guess I cant win them all LOL

    Might grab Breo, Mostess, and bespoke I think I could gift a lot out of those and be done with my holiday shopping.

  6. Skinstore has a flash sale code Flash50 to bring their Holiday Edit (advent) to $75.
    Code works on some other products like their Perricone MD Limited box
    They said only for 3 hours, so must hurry.

  7. So far, I have gifted two Hemp Crate subs, one Wicked Good perfume, one Barkbox, and a Pusheen. I I think that’s it – so far! No Good Friday or weekend deals were used.
    I’d love to hear what others have done.

    • @Carol, that is one lucky gift recipient receiving the Wicked Good perfume subscription. They are going to love it! I would like to know what other’s have been buying as well.

  8. So disappointed I was gonna sub to winc but when I went to pick my wines I noticed they were out of so much; all ciders, sparkling wines & Rose! That’s just ridiculous!! I see why they’re doing 50% off! No thank u!
