To be 100% honest. I never willingly went out of my way to go on this site and purchase any of their products. I only ever used them when my friends threw parties and I felt obligated to buy something from them.

I think that their products are nice looking and smell delicious but I can get the same things for way less money, almost anywhere else. Walmart, for instance, strong smelling waxes and nice looking warmers for half the price AND the wax does last longer. I just don't think that the money is worth it to buy Scentsy.

I don't have a huge problem or any scam stories about this but all I can say is I preferred it a few years ago. Before you use to have to scan your items so they check off the "list" and know what is left to get or whatever and now you just get them and go home and take a photo of the receipt. I don't like that at all. Also, I find it harder to navigate and slow to use now and it just upset me enough to stop using it all together.

I do have to say, though, that I made money from using this site and I did receive it. I made, I believe $60+ and then another time $30 something. I got paid both times.

When I first got engaged, my mother gifted me the first bride box. I was so excited when I finally got the email that said: "Here comes the bride box". Upon receiving the first box, I thought it was beautifully wrapped and designed. It came with a few items and a description of everything in the box and where to purchase them. I thought that was pretty cool to help me decide on some things for the wedding but I didn't think it came close to the value of what my mom spent on the box. However, I wanted to give it another shot so I signed up for the monthly box and kept my subscription for 6 months. Every time it came I was giddy with excitement and had fun being surprised. However, I did end up canceling my subscription. Not because the products the box contained but because I felt robbed every time.

Pros

It gives you products to try and options for your wedding
It sends you discount codes to purchase those items

Cons

It sends you a lot of "testing" products that do not equal or come close to the amount of money you spend on the box
The shirts that they provide (I filled out the survey with the correct shirt sizes) were not the greatest. One was way too big and the other looked like it could fit a toddler.
Each box seemed repetitive - not a whole lot of variety - and what I mean by that is the "October" box contained a lip gloss and compact mirror and then in the "December" I received another lip gloss and mirror. It wouldn't have been that big of a deal if the lip glosses weren't so similar in color and stuff. It just made me feel like I am paying to get almost the same items.

Previously, I described JustFab as cheap material but fashionable shoes, but sometimes the sizing can be off. I purchased two new pairs of boots (the same ones just different colors because I felt they were too cute to pass up). Anyway, I spent about $50 for two pairs, and the standard shipping. They came fast and they lived up to make expectations on how they would look. I got loads of compliments and a bunch of questions asking where I got them. However, It has been a few months since then and I haven't worn the other pair yet but with the current pair I wear, I have experienced issues. The bottom of the shoe is ripping (like my previous review stated) but also the cushion on the inside of the shoe went away quite quickly, leaving little to no support at all. I have had that (the lack of cushions) happen to some other boots in the past, not just from JustFab so it could be a common thing that happens regarding boots like these. $50 for two pairs of boots is an outstanding price to me, but not if the shoe won't last more than a few months. I have owned boots that have last me years before any real problems so to only have them for a few months is upsetting.

I think if the price is right and you don't care that they won't last then I say absolutely go for it. However, if you want good quality (not saying ALL of their shoes are bad, their sandals have lasted for me) I would say you are better off going to an actual store when you can try on, feel them, and see the material, feel the inserts, etc.

****UPDATE****

****I have decided to give this company another shot as it has been a few years since I have used them - I ordered two pairs of boots that are super cute! I ordered them yesterday and they already shipped this morning :) I will re-write my review once I have had the chance to wear them around a little bit****

I don't hate this company, I think they have a good concept, but I just wish it was better.

First impressions - excited, couldn't be more thrilled with how inexpensive everything was, who doesn't want shoes delivered directly to their door? I mean right?

However, you need to make sure that you read, read, read their fine print. You will be charged after the 5th day of each month IF you do not log in and "skip this month". I never had an issue with this, as I did read the fine print and always skipped the month.

When I first signed up it was mid-fall so I order three pairs of boots. When they arrived they were wrapped well and super cute and I couldn't have been more pleased! The best part yet, they ALL fit!.

However, 2 months into wearing them, they fell apart :( I am talking, holes on the sides, the bottom was ripping off, and towards the front of the shoe was split on the bottom. I was very unhappy, especially since I didn't get much wear out of them. This happened to two of the three pairs that I purchased. The third pair is still sitting in my closet, never worn, and I ordered them almost two years ago.

Another problem I encountered with justfab.com is that you can NOT cancel your membership online, you can only do it on the phone. For me it was excruciating. I say this because, not only was I on hold for a long time but when I finally got to speak to a representative they kept trying to talk me into keeping your membership until I finally had enough and yelled that I was canceling because their products suck. I do not like being hostile, but I also don't like being pressured. After that, the representative quickly canceled my membership and wished me a great day.

I opted to not give a one star because shipping was fast and easy. The product did arrive and I did get to wear them for at least two months.

I also gave them a second chance in the spring/fall and purchased some cute sandals. I have not worn them a whole lot but so far they have survived an entire year, but one sandal was a tad too big.

I love torrid beyond words can express. I have tried multiple stores in the past but something always was off, whether it was the quality of the material or just sizing issues, etc. I would have given Torrid 5 stars but I do wish that the pants were just a little cheaper than what they currently go for.

I have never personally had a shipping issue with any of my orders but I do know that I have tried on 3 different occasions to use my Torrid Credit Card and it seems like every time I am unable to do it, which when I online shop the total isn't that much so I just use my bank card. However, I would purchase more if I could use my torrid credit card. Not sure if it is necessarily a bad thing to not be able to use my card or not, considering it controls what I am actually buying/spending.

I recommend that if you have a large order though, it would be better to just go to the store if you can, and do smaller orders online.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I for sure would! I absolutely LOVE this site so much! It helps me keep track of everything I need to get done for my wedding, as well as helps me keep track of my budget. I love being able to have a wedding website as well so that my guests can keep track of my registry, accommodations, etc.

This site also allows our guests that we don't see very often see some information on us that helps them get to know us even better (our backstory, proposal, etc). I recommend anyone getting married to have a website through theknot.com and utilize its abilities, it takes away so much stress!

I love being able to know my credit in seconds. On top of that, I love the fact that if my credit goes up or down it will tell me right away. I also find it nice that if a new account goes up, they let me know - it helps me keep track of all my credit cards and stuff. I definitely recommend using this site. My fiance even was fascinated by how fast I got my results and all the options the site has, it made him want to sign up and check his!

I really like taking surveys and giving my opinion. My only thing is that I wish that each survey didn't have an overwhelming amount of similar or the same questions. Other then that I like the site

I was stressing over invitations for everything for my wedding (save-the-dates, wedding invitations, bridal shower, etc). I found this site and I thought WOW look at those prices and I was so worried that they were going to look cheap and $#*!ty or be a scam site but I purchased my save-the-dates from them and I ABSOLUTELY loved them so much that I went back and purchased my wedding invitations from them as well. My Maid of Honor also got the bridal shower invites from here as well and she saved tons of money! I absolutely would recommend this site to anyone! Great prices, fast shipping, and an incredible product.

I purchased a cake topper as my first item on this site. I am so in love with it and I am so happy with how it turned out since I was so nervous to buy it because it was coming all the way from Turkey. However, all my fears and nerves were for nothing because it was beautifully made and I can't wait to put it on top of my wedding cake!

I did not use this company for life insurance, I used them for insurance on tickets to a ballet. I booked tickets through ticket-center to the ballet to see the Nutcracker in December 2017. I purchased insurance on the tickets in the event I could not make it due to weather or a work situation (because it was our busiest season). Low and Behold two weeks before the ballet a work situation did happen and I reached out to ticket-center first and they told me to contact Allianz for a refund since it would be covered through them. When I contacted Allianz they said that I could not get a refund unless my workplace was on fire or something or a death. Weather, work, travel, etc is NOT covered at all. Why would I spend an extra 100 to ensure that I would be taken care of if nothing is actually covered? I felt scammed, but in the end, I made it work so that I could go because there was no way I was losing out on 500 + dollars. However, if I ever use ticket-center or master or any of those ticket sites, I will never again purchase the insurance, as it is a waste of money and time.

I have never had an issue with Amazon. I use it for... E V E R Y T H I N G. I love being able to just type in a word and it brings up so many ideas (especially during the holiday when I am looking for gifts). I love that they offer prime if you use Amazon a lot I definitely believe prime is a good investment for you! Plus with prime, you have access to prime movies which is also amazing!

I ordered my little girl her usual order of 6 bags of diapers, and unfortunately, she passed away really early the morning of the day they were supposed to be delivered. I reached out to Chewy.com to see if I could send the unopened package back and get a refund because of what happened. Not only did they refund me right away but they told me to donate the items to a shelter/rescue of my choice. Not only did that but they sent me multiple cards and two bouquets of beautiful flowers. I know it doesn't replace my baby girl but their thoughtfulness and kindness have really helped during this difficult time. I will forever buy things from them and would hand down recommend them to anyone!

I have to mention other things besides that though too. I have always had fast and quick service. I usually got my items a day or two after purchasing them and never had a problem with that either.
