The Most Wanted Online Subscriptions — According To You

Online subscriptions are no novel concept, but our reliance on them during these socially-distant times is. Companies like Blue Apron and Birchbox that revolutionized recurring doorstep deliveries of everything from food to beauty boxes have been around for the past decade, with emerging newcomers . For those who can afford them, many of these services have gone from a nonessential convenience to a helpful stay-at-home resource — and we tapped into exactly which ones you've been relying on the most.

We’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. 

Daily Harvest

Favorite For: Premade Meals
The classic food subscription box category saw a newer brand champion in Daily Harvest's shipments of premade and frozen superfoods. The service offers tasty smoothies to soups, harvest bowls, oat bowls, chia bowls, bites, and even lattes. Our Wellness writer subscribes to this one herself preferring to use the service for healthy snacking rather than full meals.

Flexible subscription that can be paused or canceled at any time post signup.

$47.94 for 6 meals a week ($7.99 per meal); $89.88 for 12 meals a week ($7.49 per meal); $167.76 for 24 meals a month ($6.99 per meal) — and new customers save $30 using code HELLO30.

The Sill

Favorite For: Plants
The Sill was not only an R29 readers' most wanted choice for a monthly subscription that delivers beginner-care plants direct to doorsteps, but it also served as top signup for virtual plant-care workshops too.

Flexible memberships that can be paused or canceled at any time after the first three months.

$35 to $55 per monthly plant shipment with $5 shipping costs.

Favorite For: Coffee
If you're currently missing your corner coffee shop, then this reader-favorite monthly subscription is here to serve you with its impressive selection of sustainable roasters from across the country — it's been a unanimous standout from the likes of our top coffee-subscription roundup to COVID-19 care package ideas and even our own Shopping team's under-$100 product MVPs.

Flexible membership that can be paused or canceled at any time.

$12.50 to $18 per coffee bag with no membership fees, exclusive subscriber savings with 30% off your first order, and free shipping.

Favorite For: Activewear
As readers' home became not only their offices but also their workout studios, they turned to subscription services that deliver comfortable activewear to better fit the occasion — and their favorite was Wantable's customized shipments of seven exercise or athleisure items (from leggings to sports bras and hoodies).

Flexible one-off to monthly and every three-month shipment subscriptions with your choice of items to keep/purchase.

$20 initial membership fee and $30 to $70 per purchased item.

Favorite For: Grooming
Another top contender from our roundup on useful subscription services showed readers leaning into the convenience of recurring personal care shipments — Billie's most wanted monthly kits delivering everything from shaving to beauty and body care essentials made stay-at-home grooming a feel a little more carefree.

One-off orders or flexible monthly shave plans that can be adjusted, skipped, or canceled at any time.

$9 for a monthly shave kit and free shipping.

Thrive Market

Favorite For: Groceries
Featured both in our most useful subscription roundup, this reader-favorite grocery delivery service offers sustainable shipments of organic goods with a charitable kickback — with every signup, a free membership is donated to a low-income family.

Memberships are risk-free for the first 30 days and can be paused or canceled at any time.

$60 annually or $10 monthly for members-only access to competitively-priced groceries with free shipping.

Thrive Market Thrive Market Yearly Membership, $, available at Thrive Market

Daily High Club

Favorite For: Extra-Curriculars
Since weed still isn't legal in every state, and therefore can't be mailed across state lines, this reader-favorite kush-centric subscription does not entail the actual stuff. What it does entail are all the awesome accessories you'll need to enjoy your own legally purchased stash — aka monthly themed curations (like this here '80s box) of everything from premium rolling papers to brick-phone shaped bongs and organic hempwick.

Flexible monthly subscription that can be canceled at any time.

$30 for a monthly subscription or $50 for a one-off box purchase containing over $100 worth of products — shipping not included.

Shop Daily High Club


Favorite For: Self-Care
Reader's signed up for some self-care with this most wanted crystal subscription from CrateJoy that delivers a box filled with healing crystals that are personalized to your needs that month (from Protection & Clearing to Self Love & Care or even Motivation & Focus).

Flexible monthly subscriptions that ship on the 26th of every month and can be canceled at any time.

$29.99 for a basic monthly box or $49.99 for a premium monthly box

Shop CrateJoy

Crate Joy Crystals for the Soul, $, available at Crate Joy


Favorite For: Vitamins
Last year, our Wellness Writer Karina Hoshikawa reviewed three leading multivitamin subscription brands, and Ritual came out on top for her (you can read her full review here). It also proved to be a favorite among readers and while this is certainly not an important factor for multivitamins, the on-demand package is quite cute.

Free shipping is included in your order, you can cancel or pause a month at any time, and if you're not happy with the service, Ritual offers a 30-day guarantee.

Starting at $30 a month plus tax for a clinical-backed multivitamin for women.
