If You Can Wait, You Can Save

Not all of us are loaded with money that we can just spend frivolously. We’re not talking major purchases here. We’re talking little items that we feel are nice to have but aren’t critical to have. Things like ear buds but don’t want to pay the exorbitant prices most paces charge. I came across an online shopping site that charges lower and more reasonable prices for such items. The online shopping site is called Wish.com. The items offered here are not top-of-the-line name brands but all the items I’ve purchased I haven’t been concerned about the brand, just the functionality of the product.

There is one shortfall with Wish.com. That is that shipping will take more than a couple of days. Most, if not all, products come from Asian countries. So, the shipment may take a couple of weeks to reach you. I have been very satisfied with their quality and service levels. The only issues I have had with a couple of items that were accessories for my Pixel phone. But for what I paid for them I really can’t complain. I bought one product that I was notified that it was delivered but I never received it. I just notified customer service of that and they promptly refunded my purchase price. Another time I purchased another item that was delivered totally damaged and unusable. Again, I notified customer service and sent them a picture of the damaged item and they promptly refunded my purchased price. If you find a product that interests you, you can read reviews that other customers have left about that product. Overall, I have no major complaints with them.

If you don’t mind waiting a little longer for delivery and aren’t too rigid about purchasing name brands only then you should give Wish.com a try. Download the Wish app or register at their web site and use promo code msfhqfl on your first order to get up to 50% off! You can get the app here: https://www.wish.com/dl/share.

Christmas is just around the corner

And if you are anything like me you’ve waited until the last minute to do your shopping. Now I’ve also decide to do all of my shopping online when possible.  That saves me the aggravation of dealing with the shopping crowds, trying to find a parking spot that isn’t a major trek to get to the store’s front door, and trying to search the aisles for items, and finally not having to wait in the checkout lines.  Christmas can be stressful as it is, no point in adding to the stress.

I have a couple of favorite places online that I like to shop.  One of them is Amazon and the other is Best Buys.  I like Best Buys because they also have a brick and mortar location for those last minute items.  You may need to hurry because some online retailers have deadline dates that you have to have placed your orders by in order to make delivery before Christmas.  Amazon is great for purchasing books, movies, and music, but they also are now selling many other items.

On final note,  as with earning extra money when shopping always be on the lookout for shopping scams.  If something seems to be too good to be true…it probably is.

Check out some of the other deals I came across on the Web:

That’s about it for now.  If I come across any other items and deals I will make sure that I post them here.
