theCHIVE box is a subscription service and you will receive a new box each month. If you sign up for the 6 month or 12 month service then you will be charged the full price once ($350 - 6 months or $625 - 12 months) on the first day of your first month's box. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the 6 or 12 month subscription for the full 6 or 12 months again.
In setting up a longer term subscription, we would charge the full amount up front, but you would see the discounted rates for your Chive boxes applied right away!
Why not save some money and continue to get great Chive boxes? It's a win-win!
