Oh Alice, how long I have searched for you...
You have no idea how giddy I was when Musings of a Housewife e-mailed me letting me know that I won a $100 gift card to Alice.
Please tell me you have heard of Alice. The bloggy world has been a-buzz with news of Alice. This is the most wonderful shopping site I have seen, for the thing you are always in need of: toilet paper, zip-loc bags, cleaning supplies and even snacks!
I spent almost two days looking at what I needed, wanted and HAD to get. We are always running out of things in our house, like many houses with kids. We can always use tooth paste, shampoo and zip-loc bags. We always use tin foil, our Swiffer and glass cleaner.
So, I got those things and so much more! Plus, they had a deal going where you got $10 off with you first $50 purchased! PLUS I got an additional $13 off because my order was over $100! It was hog heaven I tell you!
So today, the cute little blue and black boxes came via UPS, only two days after I placed my order. I saw the UPS Man drive up, and was waiting outside before he even got out of his truck. I dove into those boxes before he was BACK to his truck.
Everything was packaged so nicely. The dishwasher detergent was in a bag so the odor wouldn't seep into other things, and in case of a spill, same with the dryer sheets. We all know how strong those can be, so having them wrapped to block it was nice. Anything with a plunger was taped down to prevent accidental spills, and all was protected by recycled bubble wrap.
There are so many extras to Alice, I don't know where to begin.
- Free Shipping...always!
- Budgeting tools! You can monitor your monthly spending and see where to cut back.
- COUPONS!! They have so many coupons! I was able to save almost $20 this order with their vast amount of coupons.
- The ease of shopping at home. When you notice that you are running low on anything, get your order ready.
With the good, there are always bads.
- Must have at least three items to order. This isn't really a bad, but something that some might find inconvenient.
- While you may have a coupon for laundry detergent, Alice may not have it. There isn't a way to apply your own coupons.
- Bulk items not available. I buy the HUGE bottle of laundry detergent, and that size is not available online (probably for weight reasons). There are also no bulk paper towels, which we use plenty. They have three rolls max, but I usually buy 12 at a time.
Alice is a tool that we will be using from now on, I can't wait to place my next order.
Thanks Alice for the great service!! Like Musings of a Housewife says...We Could All Use an Alice!
