Subscription boxes continue to become increasingly popular, because who doesn’t love a monthly bundle of necessities (and exciting goodies) delivered to your door? These subscription boxes will save you a trip to the store or make your day just a little less stressful.
If you enjoy trying new wines and hate paying through the roof for a bottle, you’ll appreciate this subscription. Club W is the fastest growing winery in the U.S. and because the company has taken out the middlemen, the customer ends up paying less for incredible wines. The site offers recommendations based on a palate profile you create online, which takes less than a minute to complete. You always have the option to skip a month and if you don’t like the bottle, you don’t have to pay for it. Choose monthly or on-demand shipments and expect delivery within two to three days. Three bottles a month for $39 + $6 flat-rate shipping. No shipping cost on orders of 6 or more bottles. Get 50 percent off your first Club W order by clicking here.
