Cost of Subscription
A Bless Box subscription costs:
- $29.99 per month for monthly billing
- $28.99 per month for a 3-month subscription
- $28.33 per month for a 6-month subscription
- $26.66 per month for a 12-month subscription (+bonus gift in 12th box!)
All subscriptions renew automatically for the same term as your original subscription. For example, a 3-month subscription will roll over into another 3-month subscription.
As you can see, you save $3.33/month or $39.96/year by committing to a full year of boxes. So if you can afford it, make sure to sign up for a 12-month Bless Box subscription!
International shipping costs $15 per box for all international (non-U.S.) destinations, including Japan! Compared to the $25 that many Cratejoy boxes charge, this is a bargain! So the total cost of an annual subscription (billed annually) is $499.92, or $41.66 per box.
U.S. shipping costs $7.50 per box.

Fortunately, I haven’t yet had to avail myself of the damage resolution process. But let us know in the comments if you have an experience to share!
