As some of you might already know, the much coveted FabFitFun subscription box is finally available to UK shoppers. It was time, am I right?
Look, I do not know about you, but I have been looking forward to getting my hands on one of these boxes for such a long time. And now, for the first time every, FabFitFun is no longer available only to consumers in the US, but also in the UK. The American subscription box that many obsess or lust over on IG is finally here and I could not be any happier.
Here is what you need to know if you plan on subscribing to the FabFitFun box.
The FabFitFun subscription box is a seasonal box
This means that there are only four boxes per year. Quite sad, but still they are totally worth the wait.
FabFitFun offers two types of subscriptions
Yo can either get a seasonal subscription or you can get an annual one.
If you decide to go with the seasonal subscription, then you will have to pay for each box individually and you can cancel at any time.
However, if you for the annual subscription then you can save $20 and get some extra benefits such as priority access to sales and box customisation.
FabFitFun boxes contain 8-10 full sized products
In each FabFitFun box you will find between 8 and 10 full sized products. Just how cool is that? It is so rare to receive all sized products in a subscription box.
Some of these products will be chosen for you and some you can choose yourself.
You can customise your FabFitFun box
If you decide to take the plunge and subscribe to the FabFitFun box then you will get the opportunity to either let the company choose all the items in your box or you can choose some of the products yourself.
As a regular member (with a seasonal subscription), I was allowed to choose 3 of the products included in my box. For each product, I had 4 options.
As an annual subscriber or select member you have additional customisation options.
You can choose some add-ons
Like I mentioned above, you get to choose some of the products in your box. For each product I got 4 products to choose from. However, if from one such selection you are interested in two products, then you can add a second one for an additional fee. The price of the additional product is heavily discounted.
This is definitely a great thing for those of us who cannot decide!
There are two delivery periods
For each box, there are typically two delivery times. The delivery period depends entirely on the billing date.
The delivery dates for the Summer ’19 box were as follows:
- Billing date 1 – May 17 – delivery in the first half of June
- Billing date 2 – June 1 – delivery at the end of June
I ordered my box on June 3rd and received it at the end of June.
There is a limited time to subscribe and get the current box
Since FabFitFun is a seasonal box, you only have a short period to subscribe and still get the box that is out at that time. If you are a bit late, then you will be billed for the next edition of the box.
There is a sale in between boxes
If you subscribed, whether as a regular or a select member then you will have access to an edit sale which takes place a few days after all the boxes have been shipped out.
Select members get priority access and then the sale will be open to all members.
During this time, you get to buy additional products at heavily discounted prices. You just need to add these products to your basket and as soon as the sale ends, you will be billed. There is not even a need to checkout. So choose wisely!
FabFitFun subscription box pricing
For a regular member, the box costs $49.99. If you are shopping from the UK, then you also need to need to pay $10 delivery fee plus import tax which is charged at checkout.
For my first box, I had to pay $71.99 and this was only for the box with no add-ons. Overall, I paid £56.99 which is reasonable given the value of my box. My summer ’19 box had a total value of $452.95 or approximately £360.
As a select members, the situation is a bit different. First of all, you need to pay the entire sum in advance. So you are billed for all four boxes that are released in a given year the moment you subscribe. In addition, if you are shopping from the UK, then you will be charged delivery for all of these four boxes as well as tax the moment you checkout. This means that you need to pay $263.99 USD or approximately £210. However, remember that with an annual subsection you not only save 20 dollars, but you also get some extra benefits.
