Alice.com

Last week, I touted the virtues of Amazon.com and the vast array of household products they offer for sale at reasonable prices. One potential downside of buying from Amazon.com is often the items are sold in bulk, like Sam’s Club or Costco. That may be what you want in some cases but not in others. Another option in those cases where you only want a certain quantity is¬†Alice.com. Alice offers thousands of household products for sale ranging from health & beauty to medicine to just about anything you would use in your home. It’s a marketplace but not a retail store. The items for sale come direct from the manufacturer and are shipped from a midwest distribution center, thereby eliminating the “middle man”. In my experience, price are competitive with any of the major retailers but this is all dependent on pricing trends, economic climate and manufacturer incentives.

Shipping via UPS Ground is always free but there is minimum order of 6 items. There is no minimum dollar amount per order. Tax is collected based on your shipping zip code. Customer service can be reached via a number of ways – phone, email, live chat, etc. All the major credit cards as well as Paypal are acceptable methods of payment. They also accept returns within 30 days of an order.

The Alice.com website is intuitive and really easy to navigate. There are a number of search options such as by brand, each room of your house, recently added, and most popular. Within each of those searches, you can customize and order your search results by price, coupon amount, alphabetical, etc. You pretty much control how you want to search and what you want to search for, from very broad results to very specific. Manufacturers do offer coupons which are noted on both the product page and any search you choose to perform. No scissors needed! Any available coupons are graphically visible next to the product image and are automatically deducted in your shopping cart.

Here is a review written shorty after the website launched which goes into more detail and even includes a referral offer. Free to sign up and free shipping. Items arrive on your doorstep a few days after you place an order. Alice.com is another cost effective and ultra convenient shopping resource. I have placed numerous orders with Alice.com and every experience has been completed 100% to my satisfaction.
