Tophatter

Tophatter

3/7/18

I have used Tophatter for several purchases. One situation was very difficult. I won seeds for planting in the garden. Unfortunately the seeds when shipped were unmarked in a small plastic zip bag. There was no paperwork enclosed to identify them or give planting or germination instructions. I had to go back and do research and try to determine of all the seeds I had ordered from various companies, which these were! I finally located them, printed out the photo of the flowers, and the instructions. Those should have been included and I fault the seller for that. I won't know the freshness of the seeds or accuracy of the order, until they grow and bloom. All other purchases from the site have been great.

Tip for consumers: Keep very careful records along with PHOTOS of the product you ordered, date, price, and order reference number.

I have ordered a few times from PaperMart. Their quality is good, but their product prices are quite high, and their shipping prices often prevent me from ordering, if I can find a comparable product elsewhere, I'll choose elsewhere!

Unlike many reviews here, I have ordered 4 times and had 4 consistently good experiences! No products were ever delayed or missing. All were good quality. Hint: Once you start ordering online, they will begin sending catalogs in the mail. These include great discount codes on shipping, deeply discounted products and free products. My last order contained 2 free journals, 2 free notepads, some free full size thank you cards and envelopes, free gift wrap sheets, and free file folders. As long as they maintain this excellent quality, I will be a repeat customer! No complaints!

I was pleased that I joined Classmates.com Through membership, I was able to reunite with classmates from 40+ years ago. This resulted in many of us meeting again for a reunion after 40+ years. Since our small highschool had closed down years ago, this site helped us find each other again. Very pleased.

I have ordered twice from Nucific. I started using the BioX4 product, which I really like. It is a small nutritional capsule, combining 4 powerful organic natural substances. It contains EGCG, a natural compound found in green tea which aids in weight loss. The capsules also contain a natural digestive enzyme which aids in breaking down fats and in the absorption of proteins. The other two ingredients are a natural appetite suppressant, and probiotics. From what I've read, the Nucific company labs are highly rated for their cleanliness, truth in advertising, and adherence to strict standards. As for the product itself, I have used it daily for 2 months now with moderate results and no adverse side effects. I have had numerous digestive issues over the years, and have difficulty both with absorption and in finding nutritional substances that do not irritate the digestive tract. This product has worked well for me. I plan on continuing to include BioX4t in my daily regimen. Nucific has numerous other products, which I may research and consider in the future, including their bone broth, and Krill oil. As for reliability, the shipping was reasonably priced and extremely fast; I received my orders within a couple of days. Very satisfied, at this point!

We have had very good luck with bulbs and seeds from this company. My Father ordered several flowering bushes and shrubs. They arrived in excellent condition and are still thriving ten tears later.

DoorCountyCoffee

This is the website for The Door County Coffee and Tea Company. I first discovered them in a huge Department Store display at Christmas time here in Chicago. I purchased a gift basket for my sister who loves coffee. She loved the variety of flavors and I loved them because they are priced better than Starbucks. I ordered some items for myself from their website a few months later. The products were fresh and shipping was fast. The only reason I did not give them a Five Star rating is that I don't know how they will do over time and if they will be consistent. I will watch for more reviews.

Most of the Crabtree and Evelyn stores near me have closed. This must be difficult for a merchant who sells their products based upon scent. If you can't walk in the store and be overwhelmed by the incredible scents, how will you know what you like? I have used certain of their products for years. I can recommend the Hand Therapy as superior for skin hydration and repair of dry, cracked skin. Also the Body Creams, and Bar Soaps. They have a large variety of scents; my favorites are the florals, especially Evelyn Rose. I have not tried ordering online so don't know how fast or expensive their shipping may be.

Pier 1 was a favorite place of mine to shop 1 or 2 decades ago. My impression now is that their items are more commonplace and not as unique, while their prices climbed higher. Not much to interest me any more.

If you have unlimited income, you will love this store. The quality is incredible. However, the prices are sky-high. I have an Ethan Allen maple dining room set that is fantastic. The table has two leaves to adjust the length, along with table pads. I have had it over 20 years and it is as sturdy and beautiful as the day I bought it, both the table and the chairs. This will likely be passed down to the next generation or even two; it is that good. But at today's prices, I am unlikely to purchase much more; it is beyond my reach. Their designers are superior. My suggestion is to go into the showroom and look for what you like and get ideas. Then shop elsewhere and find something similar at a more affordable price.

I have ordered three times and was fortunate to have a great experience each time. The orders were accurate and complete. Shipping was as expected. Twice I received free gifts with my purchase. While many of the product sizes are somewhat small, the value is undisputable. Considering the quality and the unbelievably discounted prices when compared to department store prices, I am fully satisfied.

When my cell phone died I took it in to the store belonging to my carrier. They said I needed a new battery and sent me right next door to this store, which I had never heard of before. They opened it, matched the battery, and plugged it in and gave me a quick charge before I left the store. They also gave me paperwork for a Lifetime Guarantee on the new battery I purchased from them. Couldn't be better.

I have had a membership at this site for a number of years and it has been a lifesaver many times when I needed a last minute birthday, get well, congratulations, or other greeting. They have a huge variety of animated online greeting cards and you can customize your own greetings on most of them. No problems with payments and the few times I have had questions or issues needing resolution, they never went longer than 48 hours. Very happy with their quality and customer service. My favorite thing about subscribing to this site is that you can send unlimited numbers of cards on unlimited occasions.

I used Hickory Farms for gift giving last Christmas and the recipients were very happy. They offer selections in every price range from small items to large basket containing cheeses, sausages, fresh fruits, nuts, and chocolates. Deliveries were timely and orders accurate.

My Grandparents knew them as Bear Creek Orchards. My parents and Aunts and Uncles exchanged gifts from them back in the 1950s. I continued the tradition since the 1980s. Now I've said goodbye.
I panicked last year when I ordered a luxury gift basket for a colleague and was unable to obtain an order confirmation online. Next i was unable to log back in to my account. My credit card had been charged in excess of $200 for my order. I tried calling customer service and received a recording that the wait time was over 3 hours. Being very busy, I could not wait. I called back everyday for a week. Finally I got through, with my cell phone plugged into the charger for the nearly 2 hour wait on hold. When I finally talked to a customer service rep, he seemed dazed and overwhelmed. For years they had greeted me by name when I called. Now they no longer store my order history and haven't a clue. He finally located my order, and verified the recipient and gift information. He seemed unaware that every single time I attempt to log in I have to ask for a password reset and then register like a first time customer.
Such a shame. I am moving on. Sad goodbye.

I have placed several orders both for myself and for gifts. I love their roasted salted pecans. Also love their bridge mix and fudge for snacking, and walnuts for baking. My sister loves their organic trail mix and their Chia seeds. My only disappointment has been the Jordan almonds which seemed too hard. I always order volume sufficient to get free shipping.

Pixies, Creams, Nuts, Caramels and more; our Family and friends have loved this brand of candies for 3 generations. Some of us are close to a brick and mortar store. Family members who are not nearby order online with confidence. Shipments arrive fast and fresh. My only complaint is that like everything else, pieces seem over the years to get smaller and prices larger.

I have ordered quite a few times for myself, sisters, niece. I have not ordered skirts or slacks but I can say for the tops and sweaters they do tend to run one size larger than most other sites. So for example if you normally wear a Misses large, I suggest to order a size medium. All my shipments have been timely and accurate.

I have ordered twice now through their mail order catalog and the items were accurate and as described. Much less pricey than a department store. I was unsure about the shipping but it came surprisingly fast. Good for casual, at home or every day wear.

Micro Center

The Chicago location is very good for supplies such as paper and ink. However, when I took my laptop in for diagnosis and repair they initially said it would be ready in 2 days. When I went in to pick it up they had not started working on it yet. The next week they called me and said they needed to order a part. It was 3 weeks later before they had it done. The same problem recurred just over 2 months later and they said there was only a 60 DAY WARRANTY ON PARTS AND SERVICE!
