So, about a week ago, I made a few small online orders from Wish.com, Hollar.com, and Shopmissa.com – these are large online discount/dollar stores that have become fairy popular with frugal folks. So, I thought heck! I may as well see what all the hype is about! Though I will share an unboxing when the packages arrive, I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned so far about these retailers.
Let’s start with Wish.com. The most important thing I’d like to mention about Wish.com is the fact that they do not ship all your items together. In fact, every single item comes from it’s own retailer (so far, all from Asia), and is shipped directly from them. If you make a large order, you will get a package for each item and will have to track each separately which can be kind of a pain. If you look closely at your cart (checkout), you’ll realize each item has it’s own shipping fee as well. Even if you pick up a bunch of $1 items, your shipping will double the total cost of your order if the shipping cost is $1 each – Yikes. The bright side? I notice retailers will ship out your items fairly quickly – usually within 48 hours.
Hollar.com: Like I mentioned in my other article, Hollar.com carries many of your favorite brand named products at great prices. However, they take some time to ship out your order. I did not get a shipping confirmation until 9pm tonight – that’s nearly a week after I placed my order.
Last, but not least, Shopmissa.com has been phenomenal. Not only is this a true dollar store where every item is actually $1, they have free shipping with orders over $25 and ship locally. This will more than likely be the first order I’ll receive in the mail.
When I do, I will be sure to provide an unboxing as well as a Shop Miss A look w/ ELF cosmetics! I will also provide a review of the other products I’ve received (I’ve got some hand cream, as well as a lip scrub coming my way, among many other products). I know a lot of you folks have purchased cosmetics from Shop Miss A, and I’m really interested to hear what your favorite products are!
