Victoria's Secret

Victoria's Secret

I order plenty of items from Victoria's Secret online as often as I can (when I have enough money). I try my hardest to stay away from the mall so online shopping has become the best thing for me.

Number one: VS is completely overpriced. Dear God. Seriously, since when is a piece of lace sown together considered an item that should be $20? A little ridiculous, but I still love the products.

The website is user friendly. Easy to navigate and easy to order. Shipping is a little costly, but decent. They usually deliver my orders within the first work week so that's good. Overall, good site.

Kaiser Permanente

I've been covered by Kaiser since I was born. There are some things I'd like to change about my plan but in general, I've been very pleased with Kaiser itself.
When the website came out, I signed up right away. It really is so helpful. You can set some appointments in certain departments which is really handy, but at the same time the only reason I gave this site 4 stars and not 5 is because of the lack of departments they offer for online appointment bookings.

The site offers a plethora of options. They have self-help sections, tips, past appointment information, and so many other things. Great site and it continues to add different things to improve the sites reputation and helpfulness.

Expedia

Ah, Expedia. They are my go-to travel site. I have been to others but so far, Expedia hasn't let me down except a few mix ups.

I travel very frequently. I also have a standard of hotels I stay at. So I look on the actual hotels website before I do any booking through a third party site, such as Expedia. I've noticed Expedia is lacking some details for some hotels and I have had a couple experiences that pissed me off. But each time I got all my money back and was helped by the reps in a professional and nice manner.

The prices are really good the majority of the time, and since I'm a member I get certain discounts, etc. I look on other sites and usually it's not much different in price. So, I trust Expedia and go for it.

I recommend Expedia over several other travel sites. By far.

eBay

eBay

Eh, I rarely use eBay ever since I've had two bad experiences with them. I placed a bid on an item a long time ago and there was no way to cancel it after I found one for cheaper on Amazon. I called, etc and I continuously, to this day, get emails about that damn bid for the wallet in my cart still. OBVIOUSLY I DON'T WANT IT!

I feel like Amazon will be more efficient, and it's also less confusing than eBay. I used to like it when I was younger, but now that I place my own orders on their site I've realized they're not as good as people make them out to be.

Amazon

Amazon is just the best thing on earth. You can find such amazing deals that you would find on other sites as a scam. They're extremely secure with their information, and alert you on which products will be taken down if, in any way, are skeptical.

Every time I order from Amazon, my packages arrive on time, in good condition and fair priced. They have a direct line that isn't confusing and the reps help you in an orderly and timely fashion.

Amazon is just a great site. I'm sure they have their occasional mix ups but so far, with me, they've been nothing but helpful and successful.

DO NOT USE SAMMYSDRESS.COM. I had never experienced an online purchase scam website, and this was a disaster.

I had a trip coming up and was researching to find some clothing items that would fit the weather. I ordered 10 tops and 1 pair of shorts. This site gives you the impression that you're getting stylish, and really nice clothes for a unbelievably cheap price. Then you get to check out and notice that the shipping costs more than the 10 items you have in your cart. I think I paid $50 for standard shipping. So, yes, I did pay it but I was desperate to get these clothes because the stores I live around don't sell what I was planning on wearing. Standard shipping? Supposed to be 5-8 business days. Pretty standard, right? Well.. Sammy's Dress ended up sending my items in different packages. I got 3 shirts in one package, I kid you not, 16 days after I ordered them. The next package I get arrived about 10 days later with 4 more shirts. Then I receive the last package containing the 4 items about 10 days later. Yes people, that means I didn't receive the last shirt I ordered.

WORST PART OF THE ENTIRE SITUATION: The clothing I received was not AT ALL what I ordered!!! It looked like they had quickly sowed the clothing and the shoulders and seaming was crooked or differently sized, different colors, different style, or something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than what I saw and ordered on the website. For example, I ordered a basic sweater that was orange and it came in a off colored red and it was crooked on the shoulders and the neck line was scrunched up so it looked like it was backwards. Another thing I got was a shirt that came as long as a dress, with a wool torso part and the sleeve were lace. I NEVER ORDERED THAT! Everything I had ordered was extremely basic. Most tops were black and earth tones, and I got a red shirt that went to my knees but was extraordinarily tight on the torso area.

Overall, THIS SITE IS A COMPLETE SCAM. Do not buy from them. They will rip you off and not accept returns because THEY DO NOT HAVE A NUMBER TO CALL TO ACTUALLY HELP YOU. I'm disgusted people even think of running websites like this. Don't listen to their apologies because they don't mean them. Needless to say, I left for my trip before the first package had even arrived.

Also, do me a favor and look at the Sammy's dress "owners" replies and apologies. They aren't grammatically correct, spelled correctly, and they really just don't make sense. They promise you refunds and shipments but why did they take so long in the first place? I feel like even their responses are scams. Don't bother.

PersonalizationMall

I've ordered several items from Personalization Mall. I ordered 2 wine glasses that fit whole bottles of wine, and written a personal message on them. They arrived exactly how I had asked. I ordered a candle with a personal message for mothers day, and it came like we made it. One downfall about the candle was it kind of looked like something I could have made myself just not as perfect, so that was a bit of a bummer to know I spent money on it. But it still came out nicely. I know I ordered something else but I really can't remember. And just recently, I was looking around for thoughtful Christmas gifts for friends and family and thought of Personalization Mall. I found something cute and thoughtful for a friend of mine: a coffee mug with a cute cartoon photo of a cat on it with the option for a personal message written on the cup. I thought it was just adorable so I ordered one with my own message written on it and as it was shown in the preview, it looked great. It was also pretty cheap considering it was personalized. The price of the other gifts I had received through this site have been reasonable as well. I think the candle was $15 plus $4 shipping, and the wine glasses total were $55 with $5 shipping. I always to standard shipping, but I normally received the items in a reasonable amount of time. Usually 4-5 days, which isn't bad at all.
Overall, I think Personalization Mall is a great site to find gifts for family and friends that are more thoughtful than buying them clothes, electronics or plain jewelry. I'll definitely continue to use Personalization Mall for following events to come.
