How to Get The Most Out of Your Cheese Subscription Once You’ve Picked

Okay, so you’ve taken a look over our list and found your perfect cheese subscription match. Great! What next? Follow our steps to help make sure you make the most of your new subscription.

  • Check for coupons before buying. There’s often a deal to be had if you know where to look, and you’ve come to the right place. Here at MSA, we have the best coupons around. Keep an eye on our feed for money-saving special deals, and always make sure to check in with our reviews and brand pages for the best coupons before buying.
  • Make your subscription work for you. Keep in mind that you don’t have to receive a box of cheese every single month. Many cheese of the month clubs will allow you to skip a shipment, and some will even allow you to postpone your subscription until you’re ready for more cheese.
  • Make sure you always have space in the fridge. Once your shipment arrives, you’ll need a good amount of space in the fridge for storage. Try to keep a shelf clear if you want plenty of space to organize. (Unless, of course, you’re planning to eat all of your cheese immediately after you take it out of the box… we won’t judge.)
  • Remember there are plenty of fish in the sea. Falling out of love with your cheese of the month club? Maybe it’s time for a break. There are loads of different options to choose from, and if you decide to mix things up and give another service a try, make sure to circle back to the top of this checklist and sign up with a new subscriber coupon to make sure you get the best deal.

Factors We Considered When Reviewing This List of Cheese of the Month Clubs

We’ve researched all the top cheese subscription brands, and we’ve compiled this list to showcase the very best. The cheese of the month clubs on this list are beloved by MSA reviewers as well as the larger community of readers like you! Let’s take a look at some of the things we took into consideration when putting together this list. Factors include:

  • Reliability: A cheese delivery service is only convenient when things go according to plan. What if you have a swanky soiree planned and your box of cheese never arrives? No one wants a last minute cheese-mergency! We’ve made sure to only select cheese subscriptions that take reliability seriously.
  • Taste: Cheese delivery services can do everything else right, but if the cheese isn’t tasty, we’re not interested. Whether you’re looking for the freshest Italian cheeses or the stinkiest of blues, our list has you covered.
  • Packaging: Shipping perishable items like cheese across the country requires a certain amount of finesse, and we’ve sought out subscriptions that know how to make sure you receive cheese in peak condition. We also value subscriptions that limit the amount of packaging used and opt for recyclable materials whenever possible.
  • Variety: Variety is the spice of life, and when preparing this list, we sought out cheese of the month clubs that know how to keep things interesting. If we wanted the same brand of basic cheddar on repeat, we’d buy it from the grocery store. Cheese subscriptions have to curate something extra special to make it onto this list.
  • Price: While we wish money was no object, the truth is that price is a key factor for most people when picking out any subscription service. Our list includes options to suit a variety of budgets.
  • Customer Reviews: We know cheese of the month clubs better than anybody, but our opinion isn’t the only one that matters. We value the thoughts of the MSA community, and we’ve designed this list with their feedback in mind. Readers are encouraged to leave their own reviews on our brand pages, and their input has helped shape this list.

Grazing Goddess is my favorite cheese subscription – each month you get cheeses, meats, sweets, crackers, serving items…5-6 total items, enough to do an entire charcuterie board. We love it!

Rebecca

I live in Texas so the shipping surcharge doesn’t apply to me, but $30 a month for shipping on top of a subscription that costs $185 for three months seems obscenely expensive for a pound and a half of cheese.

Drminniecooper

Have any of these been reviewed here? They dont look familiar to me.

Christen Russo

We have reviewed Wine Down and Bright Cellars—the reviews are linked under each respective bullet point. If there are any specific subs on this list you’re curious about, do let us know and we’ll consider reviewing it!

Potato

I have a cheese board from FFF but I can’t afford cheese subs hahaha

Christen Russo

Lol, #goals. Maybe the cheese board will help you manifest the cheese!

DawnS

I love the concept of a cheese sub as I am a total mouse and cheese is a staple in my daily diet. But they are all so expensive, especially having access to costco and safeway and raleys who have all stepped up the cheese variety. I just have to break my walking schedules and drive, which I hate doing.

Chantel

Aldi is the best!! I love getting so many new types. Their pepperoni marinara cheese is so good.

Christen Russo

“I am a total mouse” — hilarious, Dawn! I would say these subscriptions would be most useful for folks who either don’t have access to those great grocery options, or for someone who values the element of surprise that would come with them being selected by a cheesemonger. And, I think in some cases the price is due to special shipping packaging needs!

Ragan

I would not have expected there were this many of these.

Christen Russo

Kind of amazing, isn’t it?

Bob Bounces

All from the same cow, ya think?
