Admittedly we’re a little biased, but hear us out: subscription boxes are great!
And we’re not the only ones. According the Sloan MIT, subscription box services have grown more than 1000% over the past couple of years.
Don’t believe us? We’ve put together a list of the 5 reasons to use a subscription box, and we think you’ll agree after reading them.
1. They provide a ton of value
First and foremost, subscription boxes come packed with lots of goodies. Depending on the box, each delivery may contain as many as 10 – 12 items.
But purchasing each individual item by itself would be cost prohibitive for many consumers.
By ordering a subscription box, you’re receiving multiple items at a discount above and beyond what you could find by purchasing each item on its own.
2. They’re just so convenient
Not only are you saving money with each subscription box, but you’re saving time! And what more valuable commodity do we have than time?
Who wants to load the kids into the car and spend a day driving from store to store, trying to find that perfect item? Who has the time or patience to walk up and down aisle after aisle looking for something that may not even exist?
By using subscription boxes, you’re saving yourself multiple trips to multiple stores. No more loading the kids into the car and hoping that everything you need is in the first store.
No more disappointment when you find out the store is out of stock, and you either have to make one more trip or start searching online.
Subscription boxes take all the hassle out of shopping so you can focus on what’s important to you. They show up on a predictable schedule and deliver great value throughout the year.
3. You can’t find them anywhere else
Subscription boxes often provide items you simply cannot find anywhere else.
No amount of scouring shelves at the local stores will help you find some of the unique finds that subscription boxes can provide.
The reason is because subscription box providers work with companies that big box stores can’t or won’t work with.
The world is full of amazing artists and designers, but not all of them can have their products featured in the stores you frequent the most. There simply isn’t enough room on the shelves for all the amazing companies out there.
Subscription box providers seek out and work with these artists and smaller companies to help feature their work. In return, the subscription boxes you know and love are able to feature one of a kind pieces that you simply won’t find anywhere else.
4. They make great gifts
We all know someone who is difficult to shop for. Every year when their birthday comes around, the anxiety of finding them a great gift starts to creep in.
Subscription boxes are a great answer for these hard-to-shop-for friends and family! No more searching through gift guides online and aimlessly walking through your favorite big box store.
As long as you know what someone is interested in (decor, sports, wine, pets, etc) it’s not hard to find a subscription box that they’ll love.
They get a beautiful set of gifts delivered right to their door, and you get credit for being an amazing gift giver. That’s a win-win!
5. You’ve earned it
Let’s face it: you do a lot. Whether you’re taking care of family, working extra hard to make your boss look good, running a company, or just out there doing your own thing, you probably do a lot more than you give yourself credit for.
So why not treat yourself? Why not try a subscription box and see what it’s all about? Chances are you’ve had your eye on one (or maybe two), so what’s stopping you?
