It’s no secret that I absolutely love subscription boxes, Julep, Birchbox, PopSugar MustHave, Ipsy..I love them all! But mostly, I love getting them for FREE or cheap and I do this by promoting them on my blog at BoxMom.com. Most subscription boxes have an affiliate or referral program that you can take advantage of and in return earn free products or money from recommending them on your blog.
The best part about subscription boxes is that there is one for every niche! Whether you blog about kids, food, beauty or fitness, there is a subscription that will suit you and your audience. (P.S. Check out this list of subscription boxes, crazy right?)
Now, some bloggers shy away from this because let’s be honest, nail polish doesn’t pay the bills. BUT I firmly believe that if I get something for FREE it’s like saving money, which is a win in my book! Plus, I absolutely love these boxes!
Here’s a rundown of some of my favorite referral programs: Yes, I’m using my referral codes 😉
StitchFix – Get $25 in credit when your friend’s box ships
Ipsy – Get 250 points for each friend your refer (Use points in the Ipsy store)
Birchbox – Get 50 Points for every friend you refer (100 points gets you $10 in the Birchbox store)
PopSugar Must Have box – Get 3 Friends to Sign up & Get a Free Box!
How to Promote Subscription Boxes on your Blog:
1. Find a subscription box that you are interested in and fits your audience. Head over to MySubscriptionAddiction and take a look through all of her box reviews and find a couple that you are interested in.
2. Sign up to receive a box. Yes, you will have to pay for your box, but if done correctly, it may be the last time you pay for it! From their you’ll likely receive a referral code in your account.
3. Use your referral code. Any time you mention the box, you can use your referral code to link to the product, it can be used on social media and your blog.
4. Get Free Stuff. Once someone signs up under your referral link, you’ll likely get an email from the company letting you know that someone signed up and that you’ve got credit!
