I shop a lot of different sample sale sites, it lets me get things that I wouldn’t otherwise buy at prices I’m willing to pay. My most recent experience was with The Foundary. I ordered a pendant light for my bathroom. It was only $30, well $35 with shipping, but still a great price considering the cost of all the other pendant lights I’ve liked.
Their shipping is really fast, so I got this in under five days. Unfortunately, when it was delivered the glass globe on the light was broken. I’ve received broken stuff from sample sale sites before, Billion Dollar Babes is the one I’ve had trouble with in the past. Their return policy is terrible and I was expecting the same experience with The Foundary. Imagine my surprise when I discovered an easy to fill out form on the Foundary’s site.
I filled out the form, and requested a replacement product (I really like this light so I was willing to try again). Within 15 minutes I had received an e-mail confirming my return, and telling me to just keep my broken one and donate it to charity – no need to ship it back. And 15 minutes after that I received another e-mail confirming that my replacement product had been ordered and would be shipped soon.
I received my new light today in one piece – barely a week since my original order. And I couldn’t be happier! Now I’m off to add “Hang Bathroom Light” to my husband’s todo list.
So, Deal Pulp, my favorite deal site this past couple of months just made some changes to their website and now I like them even more! First of all, they used to just sell deals like groupon does, You know, you buy a certificate that you can spend at a store. Well, now Deal Pulp has sample sales as well. And the prices are great! I’m considering buying this necklace that was originally $42 and is now $14. And shipping is only $2.99 right now as well!
I like Gaggle of Chicks ok, they’re like a groupon as well, but more specifically for parenting and child related stuff. Their deals are ok, and if you are looking for deals on organic products I would definitely give them a try.
My Habit isn’t bad either. Right now, they have a promo code for $25 off any order with the code SUMMER25. This promo is good until the end of the month so you have a few weeks to find what you want. This is a sample sale site and their prices are pretty good. They have some really cute girl dresses for $35 right now!
Other great children’s sample sale sites are The Mini Social and Zulily. I think she shipping is a little expensive on each of these but the prices are pretty good and everything I’ve ordered has gotten to me in a couple of weeks. Unlike Billion Dollar Babes, a woman’s sample site. I’ve ordered from them several times and it’s taken over a month each time to get my order. Though, they have updated their site recently, maybe they’ve updated their shipping time as well.
And, if you’re looking for homegoods I really like The Foundary. I’ve ordered from them several times and gotten my orders very quickly. Also, I’ve done some research and the furniture I’ve ordered has been cheaper from here than the same furniture purchased on Amazon so I am able to save money with this site. I’m currently monitoring the site for a light for my guest bathroom. So far, any light I’ve liked has been sold out by the time I get to it.
