Tips for First Timers

  • If you’ve never done subscription boxes, be sure to do some research! There are a ton of different boxes out there, and some companies took payment and then closed and didn’t ship out the boxes.
  • Don’t forget to look for promotions that they run for additional free months or giveaways.
