There's a lot of assumption and impatience surrounding this company; especially about the time it takes from when you order an item until it arrives at your door. The long wait is due to where the item is being shipped from, which, by the way, is stated on the item's link.
There's an array of things on this site. I'm pretty sure you can find just about anything you can imagine on Wish really. I've seen some strange things there myself lol.
A lot of the items on the site are shipped from Malaysia which is why it can take up to a month for it to get to you. The Customs process can be a bit of a pain at times. There are U.S. sellers on there too and a lot of the items offer expedited shipping for a little extra on the price to ensure you get your item within a week or two.
When you purchase something, it tells you when it should arrive (some sellers require a signature upon delivery to verify that it was received by someone) and every purchase comes with a tracking number for each item you buy.
Wish also has so many ways for you to get discounts on their already discounted items. They run on a system that awards points you can use to get a percentage taken off your order's total. The most known discounting system they use is when someone buys the same item you did. You get a discount because someone else bought it. They award points for writing a review of what you buy, and give even more points if your review includes a photo or video of the item. They also have a new thing where if you log into the app on any 7 days within a month's time, you get a digital coupon worth 50% off your order. I can love that I can find something for like $20 and end up paying like $5 because of using all the discounts I get.
I've never not gotten an order from them. I think the longest it took anything to arrive was the very first thing I ever "bought" which was a freebie with a $1 shipping cost because I was new to the site. I love shopping here.
If you've never shopped with Wish before, I think you should at the very least give them a shot. I used to be skeptical and think they were a scam because the prices are insanely low (a friend of mine just bought a pool that sells on Amazon for $150 for $80), I've been screwed by sellers on well-known, well-spoken of companies before (Amazon and eBay); But I've NEVER been ripped off by Wish.
I adore Chewy. I buy all my pet stuff from them because delivery is fast and customer service is amazing.
My only gripe with the shipping, is sometimes a bag of cat food or dog food, or the cat litter will be ripped a little upon arrival. I've never made a complaint about it, because it's not really that important. I'm not even sure if the damage is on their end or not really, though I do suspect it's something that happens in their warehouse sometimes, especially if there's no damage to the box just the cat food or dog food bag, we've all had those hit and misses with forklifts at least once lol. Okay, not everyone has, but I've seen it happen where I work, so I know those accidents happen, and sometimes they aren't caught because of where the nick happens (typically the bottom bags on the pallet that the forks catch when they go to grab the pallet). Those nicks aren't caught unless food/litter/etc is coming out of the bag, so it's not until way later that it's noticed. And it's really no one's fault, so I've never complained about it.
Delivery time is typically two days. I kid you not. I order every Thursday night when I get my paycheck and my order arrives every Saturday afternoon via FedEx. You really can't get better than that. Amazon doesn't even typically that quickly (even if they say they do).
This company really cares about their customers. It's rare that you have a company contact you wanting to rectify something you've received damaged or that didn't meet THEIR quality standards without you having to contact them first. But, this company does and WILL. They emailed me today about the reviews I'd left for the pet products I bought and REFUNDED me for ALL OF THEM without me ever having contacted them first. That's almost $200 worth of products I'm being refunded for and I never even contacted them. All I did was leave reviews warning other customers about the products if they have as many pets as I do, or if their pets are hyper as mine are.
Yes, Chewy's prices may be a little higher on some items, but you're not going to the bang for your buck anywhere else, I can guarantee this. I am a true-blue Chewy.com loyal customer now >~.^<
This is a quarterly subscription box. They "claim" they don't take the money from your account until they ship, but that's a lie. I ordered both the Toonami Box and preordered the Robot Chicken Box. I not only received either one but they deducted the $117.98 ($58.99 per box) as soon as the order was placed, which was back in March.
I was looking forward to these boxes and now, 4 months later, it seems like I'll never get them. Not are customers locked out of the site, they aren't getting responses of any kind from customer service via email or their Facebook page. My orders are still marked as "Paid" and "Unfulfilled" and it looks like I'm screwed by yet another company. This one hit hard because Williams Street isn't some unknown thing. These guys are huge. The fact that they care so little about their fans and customers disheartens me in so many ways.
This is a fairly new company, but their mission is noteworthy. The are an online thrift store. Unlike other thrift stores, ThredUp only takes top name brands and will credit or pay you for your donations.
ThredUp makes those outrageously priced top name brand clothes affordable for everyone. Even the big names like Ambercombie are set at low prices so everyone has a chance to dress in good clothes.
Of the two outfits I bought my daughter, the Ambercombie jeans and the Cat & Jack shirt still had their original tags on them. The other two had ThredUp tags.
This company doesn't play games. My order arrived 4 days before it was expected to and everything was not only packaged nicely, they were also wrapped like presents and came with a little thank you note from the company.
I'll definitely be buying from this company again.
This is a nifty site I stumbled across while I was looking for some hard to find TV series. They had it.
While most of the DVDs you buy from here seem to be nothing more than burned copies, it's nice to be able to find TV shows on disc that were never released and really it's not hard to make them look authentic on your own so they fit in with the others in your collection.
Some times you get lucky and can find a seller that has a case and disc art for what you buy. Make sure you read the descriptions so you know what you're getting.
With the prices being reasonable and shipping quick, there's no reason I wouldn't go back to this site to find even more of the old shows I love and miss.
These are lumped all together because they are part of the same company.
Nerd Block is a monthly subscription site what offers a ton of different blocks you can subscribe to. When I first joined in 2014, they were amazing. The items were great, customer service was on point. I referred this company to everyone I knew. In the beginning of 2016, things started to change. Their popular Arcade Block was broken down into 2 different boxes forcing those subscribers to subscribe to both and spend double what they were so they would get everything they were getting with the old Arcade Block By June of 2016, they had filed for bankruptcy and were still deducting monthly fees from their customers without sending anything. I was subscribed to the Horror, Girls Jr, Gamer E and Gamer M boxes; at $30 a pop per box that's $120 a month. Now factor in that I received the June boxes in the middle of July, at which point i cancelled my subscriptions all together because my gut told me something was off. I was still charged for the July and August boxes despite my subscriptions being cancelled but never received either one at all. I was screwed out of $240. No matter how many times I contacted costumer service, I never heard back, even now, at 2 years later, when I finally got a response, it wasn't to let me know I was being refunded. The new owners wanted to give me credit toward new subscriptions. No thank you. I have zero faith in this company now no matter who owns it.
On to the actual boxes!
The Arcade Block was AMAZING! It had an assortment of items from games both E and M. Everything from shot glasses to collectibles was in there. You always got a tee shirt too. Every month's items made the Block worth the price because if you looked up the things you received, they were usually worth more than the Block was. Then they changed it and ruined it in 2016.
The Nerd Block Jr. Girls was made especially for girls ages 7-12 and was filled with MLP, Littlest Petshop, Shopkins, Hello Kitty, etc; you know, all the things little girls absolutely crave. My daughter loved it and rocked all the shirts like they were designer finds. Around 2015, the boxes became repetitive. It was like they weren't trying anymore and the Blocks that were arriving contained a mix-match of items appropriate for children from other Blocks. When my daughter's Girls Block arrived full of Nerd Block Jr. Boys items, she had me stop her subscription all together.
The Horror Block was my favorite. That was absolutely worth the money, even up until the very end. You always got a horror-themed tee shirt and a current issue of Rouge Morgue Magazine which was like a huge book filled with articles and things from horror movies and haunted destinations. Sometimes you even got a special edition issue that focused on a specific topic. Occasionally, your block would contain a DVD of an old cult classic. I've gotten Puppet Master Movies, Demonic Toys movies and a 3D bluray of Starry Eyes all from this Block. It was by far my favorite.
The Gamer E and Gamer M Blocks were the worst decision Nerd Block could have made. I'm almost sure these Blocks helped lead the company into bankruptcy. For an entire year, people who had once subscribed to the amazing Arcade Block where they received so much stuff that the box barely closed, were reduced to receiving 3 or 4 items of poor quality in the specific Block they were subscribed to while still paying the same price they had for more items with the Arcade Block. every once in a while, you'd get something good. There was a VR Headset for cell phones in both the M and E Blocks one month. Every Gamer block game with an indie STEAM game that wasn't worth much. The games were horrible and no one wanted to play them. eBay and Listia are littered with the keys to these games because no one wants them. It wasn't long after the creation of these two blocks ultimately led to a mass exodus of subscribers and eventually aided in the downfall of this company.
A bit of advice to these kinds of companies, don't mess with a good thing. If people are complaining about the content of a box, make two new ones to accompany the original so people who like E things can have E things, people who like M things can have M things, and those who like both can still have both without having to spend more money than they rightfully should.
This company is all about the joy and magic of fairies. They currently sell 4 fairy-themed items that bring fairies into your home.
I dislike that you can't set up an account to track your orders like you can with other sites, and their costumer services seems to be non existent really. They never respond to emails when you contact. They're delivery time is mediocre at best, but still quicker than sites like Wish.
I put all three here because they are all the same company, Loot Crate.
Loot Crate itself is one of those monthly subscription mystery box places. They have a good customer service base and respond to emails quickly. Their delivery time is a big mixed. I suppose it depends on what you order.
Loot Anime is one of the mystery box subscriptions. It's the only one I subscribe to. Every month is a gamble on whether or not what you get is worth the $34 monthly fee, but most of their items are high-quality. The crates always have a tee shirt, a manga or light novel, a large anime poster, one wearable item and something collectible. They also come with collectible pins that unlock digital manga on an associated site. Delivery time is usually close to a month. Payments are deducted the 10th of every month and you usually don't get the crate until the very end of that month or the first week of the following month. It's still a lot better in items and communication than a lot of other places.
Loot Vault is an actual shop run by Loot Crate. This is where items from past crates go so people who missed the crates or just wanted certain items can buy them at their leisure. The prices are clearance marked, and when they have sales, the prices are even lower. This is probably my favorite section of Loot Crate honestly. These don't arrive in a custom box like the Crate subscription boxes do. I've had Vault orders arrive in Loot Gaming boxes and in Loot Anime boxes lol
The Moonlight Shop is an online Pagan shop that seems to have everything the modern Witch needs for their craft.
I like how helpful they are. When a package ships late, they are quick to locate it if they can. They also check up on their customers weekly, especially if they haven't stopped by the shop in a while just to see how they are.
I fully believe this company has their customers' best interest in mind when it comes to costumer service and the atmosphere is one that can't be beat.
Don't let the name fool you, Quillity Author Services does more than just promote authors. I use them to help promote my Scentsy business and I have zero regrets. Quillity has been amazing with promoting my products. They're diligent, eager to help and actually enjoy promoting others, which is rare since most companies these days are just looking for a quick buck. Their prices are more than fair for the amount of work they do within an hour. They are very creative-minded and have a million ideas on how to sell your brand and products more effectively while reaching new customers in the process. I totally intend to continue using their services and not just for Scentsy.
