If the unboxing-video trend has taught us anything, it’s that we really enjoy getting boxes in the mail full of cool things to inspect. Subscription box services scratch that itch nicely. Typically sent on a monthly or bimonthly basis, these services stuff their regularly scheduled care packages with items that fit a particular theme, whether it's pop culture franchises like Harry Potter or something broader, like vintage video games. If you want a box of something fun to land on your doorstep each month, check out these geek-friendly pop culture-themed subscription boxes that you can sign up for right now.

1. Funko Pop in a Box; Starting at $11 per box

Funko

Funko Pop! figurines are the must-have collectible of the 21st century. If you want a steady supply, their Pop in a Box service will deliver figurines to your doorstep. The price varies on the number of Pop! figures included in each monthly box. If you’re happy with one, it’s $11. For 12 Pops! per box, it's $100. You can choose Pops! you like and keep track of ones you already own to make sure you don’t get any duplicates. The company also offers custom Pop in a Box subscriptions for fans of Marvel, Disney, animation, television, movies, and more.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.
