One of the reasons we love FabFitFun is because there are so many benefits and additional options for your subscription. (If you're new to FabFitFun, check out our intro guide to learn more about this women's lifestyle subscription.) And since there is so much to a FabFitFun subscription, there are some perks and hacks you may not be aware of, so we thought it would be helpful to round up all our tips in one place!
FabFitFun Tip 1: Use Favorites in your Add-On + Edit Sale Shopping Strategy
If you've shopped Add-On and Edit sales before, then you know that a lot of items can "sell-out" on the first day and sometimes even the first few minutes of the sale. In this case, "sell-out" really means other members have reserved those items in their cart. (There is no checking out. Every item you add to your cart will automatically be charged to your card at the end of the sale.)
Because of this system, a lot of FabFitFun members will go back to the Add-On sale on the last day to edit down their cart before they are charged. This means that a lot of the inventory for the popular "Sold out" items will come back on the last day/last hours of the sale. Here's an easy way to keep track of the sold-out items you want:
When browsing the sale, mark any sold-out item you want as a favorite by clicking the heart in the upper right corner. Then, any time you check back on the sale, sort by your favorites to instantly see all the items and spot the ones that are back in stock. (There are usually hundreds of items in the sale, so this is a great way to see back-in-stock items ASAP!)
FabFitFun Tip 2: New subscriber? Go with the $10 coupon or wait for a GWP Bundle
You can always save $10 off your first FabFitFun box with coupon code MSA10, but you can also get a free "gift with purchase" bundle during certain times. These gift with purchase bundles usually have a value of $100 or more, include 3 full-size items, and happen about once a month. Check our FabFitFun coupons to see if there's a current GWP offer.
FabFitFun Tip 3: Existing seasonal subscriber? Wait until the next season to upgrade to annual for perks.
If you've been thinking about upgrading from a seasonal to an annual subscription (you'll be able to select 5 items in each box instead of 3, plus other perks), it pays off to wait.
Before the upcoming Add-On Sale for the next season, FabFitFun usually offers seasonal subscribers a $10 free Add-On credit if they upgrade. Just keep an eye on your email for that offer! Wondering when you should expect it? That brings us to the next tip!
FabFitFun Tip 4: Keep tabs on the FabFitFun Events page.
This tip is pretty straight forward, but if you weren't aware this page existed, it's a pretty great find! Not only will you find all upcoming dates for edit sales, spoiler reveals, etc., but also billing dates.
FabFitFun Tip 5: Check out FabFitFun Offers every season.
Another FabFitFun subscriber perk you might not be aware of: almost every brand featured in the box will include a discount for subscribers and you can find it on this page. And you'll also find offers from some brands that weren't featured in the box but that FabFitFun thinks subscribers will enjoy. Some of the discounts are usually pretty good, and we've spotted a few completely free offers over the years, too.
Here's an example of a current free offer for Scribd:
FabFitFun Tip 6: Use FabFitFun TV for free workout and cooking videos.
An additional perk to your FabFitFun subscription is access to all their exclusive video content. The fitness/wellness category is the most filled out, with sections for Pilates, Dance, Cardio, Meditation, Yoga, and more. (And it's available on Roku and other streaming devices, too.)
FabFitFun Tip 7: Even if you're already a subscriber, you can still get Members Picks/Editors Boxes.
When a seasonal box sells out, new subscribers will get a special box as their first box when they sign up. (This is referred to as an Editors Box or Members Picks Box. See an example, here.) If you're already a subscriber, you will not get this box. But if you want it, there is a way!
If you're already a subscriber, you can buy one or more of these boxes for $49.99 each in the shop section of FabFitFun. You'll be able to make your customization choices just like you would for a normal seasonal subscription box, too. (If you are an annual subscriber, make sure to contact FabFitFun customer care before purchasing - you may be able to select items from additional categories.)
