Verizon just took a pro-tip from the fashion industry with Tech Pack, a subscription box that lets users try different tech products for up to two weeks before deciding if they want to keep them. 

The new service was announced Friday, in emails sent out to select Verizon customers. It’s apparently still in the testing phase and has already filled up.

Similar to other subscription boxes like Stitch Fix or FabFitFun, users first fill out a survey about what gadgets they like so the box can be best tailored to their interests. Three mystery products are then sent out (Verizon hasn’t decided how often) and the user can decide whether to keep or return them after two weeks.

Though the signup is free, Tech Pack could become expensive for subscribers who keep most of their products, which could run up to hundreds of dollars depending on what they like. Possible products could run as low as $40 (a Belkin car charger) or up to $180 (Canary’s Flex camera) or higher. All products come with instructions, tutorials, tech support, and return labels.

Tech Pack subscriptions are currently sold out, but you can sign up via phone or email for updates.
