Do you subscribe to any monthly "surprise boxes"?

Does everyone who sign up for it get one or only certain ones?

Nope, I don't. They seem like a big rip off. Companies should pay to distribute samples to attract customers... We shouldn't be paying for it.

I've looked at a few, but never really found any that interested me enough to sign up.

After checking my online banking, I can no longer "recommend" (not that I was really recommending in the first place) Spicy Subscriptions. They were supposed to bill my card monthly with each shipment, and they went ahead and billed me for the whole 4 months. This is annoying to me-I thought I had the option to cancel at any time, how does that make sense with being billed up front? So if I did cancel, I would have to wait for them to credit my account? I emailed them in no uncertain terms that I would like a refund for the full amount (I was also charged an international transaction fee; I didn't even know that they are a Canadian company! Oh and they charged sales tax even though they're not only not in my state but a different COUNTRY.) Less the $14.95 for the first month, if they're willing to do it that way. But I almost don't even want to do that. If they can be dishonest and try to gobble up every dollar from the customer. It's a lesson learned that once you find a good company (like Eden, whom I absolutely trust) don't deviate. I'm so glad I have a good credit union that I can count on to remove the charge if the "company" doesn't.

You do get full-sized products (in the ones that I'm aware of.) I still think Conscious Box is a good, reputable company.

I would love to but I don't have the disposable funds right now.

No, I'm not going to pay to receive monthly samples.

I've had mixed feelings about these boxes.. There are some days I'm like, "oh I totally want to receive them" and then other days I'm like, "waste of money!". I signed up for Ipsy but am on the waiting list. This is my third time being on the waiting list because every so often I start feeling like it isn't worth the money... so I cancel before my subscription starts.

No. I have limited disposable income and would rather pick out something I REALLY want than to have several so-so items picked out for me.

I subscribe to Glossybox and I really like it. 5-6 beauty products a month, one (sometimes) two full size products and the boxes are sturdy and reusable. I also subscribe to the Julep Maven nail polish program, but I've skipped the last few months.

I've heard of them. Haven't subscribed to one yet but I'd like to. I think a beauty box would be fun.

I'd rather know what they're sending me. Don't want to be paying for stuff I'm never going to use.

I would love to see a list of these!

One that I would consider is My Panty box: link

I don't think I could subscribe if I didn't know what I was going to get.

I was thinking about doing a monthly delivery package that has chocolates and other stuff for my period but they don't have the Stayfree pads I use. (I know they're latex free, and I don't want to be stuck with pads that give me a reaction like Always does.)

I'm thinking about signing up for one. I don't know if you can cancel a subscription, but what if I get one box and it's total crap? I'd want to try it out first.
Tbh I don't really have space or storage for a bunch of random crap coming every month. My apartment is tiny. But I love the idea of getting one every month.

My wife and my mom do Birch Box & they LOVE it. I am a little lost as to what most of the stuff is, but I know one month they both got headphones. Idk, seems pretty cool.

There's one called Knit Crate... they send yarn and stuff

When Shoedazzle was a subscription thing, I was subscribed and got a couple pairs of killer heels off there...they switched though and I don't think they're a subscription thing anymore. Their shoe choices have also gone down hill.
