The subscription based shopping model is a relatively new one in terms of e-commerce, but it’s catching on fast as shoppers realize how much money it’s saving them and how much more they can find online than they can when they strictly shop around town. Depending on what you need, there are some excellent choices from a subscription to doggie treats and toys to a quarterly sock subscription for the busy on-the-go wonk who forgets that they need fresh new socks.
Subscriptions for Restocking the Family Pantry, Bathroom, and Nursery
Whether you need to stock up on boxed mac n’ cheese, honey, protein bars, or other foods and sundries, purchasing a yearly subscription with Thrive Market is the way to go. With their extensive inventory, promise of natural and organic options at far-below usual retail prices, and using your subscription money to assist those in need to eat more healthfully, Thrive Market is an excellent choice. Shop online, from your phone, at 3 a.m., and get what you need for less than $60 membership yearly.
If you’re constantly forgetting to restock diapers, wipes, and tear-free shampoo, among other baby goods, The Honest Company can’t be beat. With their easy-to-use subscription based shopping model that allows you to change your subscription each month as often as needed, you’ll enjoy adorable goodies, great prices, and an inventory of popular, organic, and earth-friendly products to pamper from preemie to tween.
Subscriptions for Men’s Needs: From Whole Ensembles to the Key Details
Undershirts, underwear, socks all have one thing in common: they tend to need refreshing a lot more frequently than we make time for. With a sock subscription from Nice Laundry on you side, you’ll receive seven spanking new pairs of socks every quarter. Choose from no-show socks and calf socks in a huge variety of ultra-trendy styles, colors, and prints for a “sock drawer makeover” discount of $48 when you subscribe.
For those looking for the total package, try a total wardrobe subscription, including a stylist, check out Trunk Club, where you can pick from casual to formal ensembles depending on your needs. Another interesting choice is Mr. Collection — a subscription men’s clothing rental website — receive clothes, wear them for a month, receive a new box and send back the previous clothes, or buy them at a discount if you like them. Mr. Collection brings to the subscription market a very affordable option for the “everyman.”
All guys need quality shaving essentials, and Dollar Shave Club brings a subscription for these needs to market beautifully. Guys choose from three different razor options for their monthly subscriptions, and have the option to pick from several shave gels, aftershaves, and hair care products, too — and the price has more consumers shopping online for these hygiene products that are heavily marked up at brick and mortar retailers.
Subscription Based Shopping for Man’s Best Friends
With subscriptions for dogs like BarkBox and pet food subscriptions from Chewy.com, you’ll have everything from essential top-of-the-line kibble to supplements, flea and tick treatment, chew toys, dental chews, and more. With huge markups at chain pet stores, options like these will have your wallet breathing a sigh of relief without denying Rover and Fluffy the treats they’ve come to enjoy.
If you haven’t tried subscription based shopping yet, now you’re armed with info to try it out. Enjoy what you love, save money, and in many cases, support companies that give back to the community.
