Wish.com – Product Review (Super Cute $4 Wallet!)


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hey guys – so, yesterday, I also received this wallet in the mail from Wish.com! This is my first time ordering anything from this website, and I’m actually very pleased with the result. The wallet arrived in great condition ; all of the zippers work, no problems with the seams or anything. It’s a large, roomy wallet that can hold a ton of coins, cards, cash, and probably even your cell phone. There is also an additional pocket on the back as well. This is really a hold-all clutch.

Link to product here! It’s $4 + $1 shipping! Not a lot of places you can get such a cute wallet (with a coin pouch built in) for $5!

Order Update: Wish.com, Hollar.com, Shopmissa.com

Hey Gang,

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!

Wish.com, Shopmissa.com, & Hollar.com: The Review


The nature of online shopping is evolving into this very flexible and very convenient way of being a consumer. I think as people move further into the digital age, we will be doing virtually everything online, and almost everything will be accessible online as well.

The idea of an online dollar store is an interesting new trend that I am very eager to learn more about. The two main websites that dabble in this concept is Shopmissa.com and Wish.com. Miss A is a literal dollar store where everything is actually $1. According to my knowledge, there is currently no other website like this out right now. If you do know of another online dollar store, please let me know in the comments because I would love to know about it! Shop Miss A specialize in cosmetics and accessories. If you really dig and take your time, you’ll run into a few gems. Their collection is huge, and I really mean it when I say huge. They probably have hundreds of each type of cosmetic item, as well as accessories. They also sell some of your favorite drug store bands such as E.L.F (Eyes, Lips & Face). It would take you hours to get through looking at everything.

Wish.com has been around for a while. In fact, Wish.com was incredibly popular many years ago. Did you know that you couldn’t actually purchase anything from this website when it first launched? It was more of a We Heart It type of app. However, today, that is not the case – it is much more like Groupon.

My advice? Don’t be afraid to buy from foreign discount stores such as these – that sell very low-priced merchandise. (aliexpress.com is another fairly popular discount store) Though keep in mind: you will wait quite a while to receive your items in the mail. Your packages will more than likely be shipped overseas from China via Chinapost and take a few weeks to get here, if not more. Also, quality of the product is a total hit or mess.

Hollar.com is a new discovery for me! This website, in my opinion, is a best-kept secret, that isn’t really a secret – just new to the market.

Hollar is a discount store that sells well-known brand merchandise – not generic or “bootleg”. Prices start at $2 and almost everything in the store is under $5. They have almost anything you can think of! It is a small-scale department store with an impressive variety of products. Just to give you an idea of what you can buy: I purchased Tupperware, a cat collar, glitter gel pens, earrings, a box of brown rice tea, and a scarf, just to name a few!

Do you have a favorite online store than you frequent? I’ll love to hear about it!
