It's an interesting company. They have all sorts of one-off products, some returned or open-box items, that they sell at big discounts. I purchased one pendant light. It was an open-box item, and they had lots of photos to show everything that was in the box, so you could see the condition of the item and whether anything was missing. I received it within 3 days of ordering. Would definitely buy from here again if I found the right product(s)!

Tip for consumers: The products are legitimate, but be sure to read their descriptions carefully so you know if you are getting a new, used, returned or open-box item. But even those are usually worth it for the discounted prices.

My experience is with eBates.com, but they just rolled that site into rakuten.com. They've actually been part of the same company for years, but just merged into one website. Anyway, I have made over $237 dollars over the past few years, with extremely limited effort. Basically, I've just shopped online like I always shop. But I use the 'ebates/rakuten' Chrome extension, and when I'm on a site, it alerts me that free cashback money is available. So I make the purchase like I would have anyway, and get some cashback. They used to mail me checks, but now it just gets direct deposited in my paypal account. I've had no problems!

Tip for consumers: Get the Chrome extension for free cashback alerts on the sites you are already on!

Great local-to-Minnesota company. They've been in business several years, and have a retail shop in St. Louis Park, MN. Website is legitimate, and I have ordered products with no problems.

First, this is of course a totally legitimate website. My only issues with their webdesign is sometimes it loads slowly, and sometimes it is hard to open links in a new tab. I've used both ship-to-store and ship-to-home and both work great. If you don't already have a coupon, be sure to check coupon sites as they often have discounts. You can return any online purchase to any Kohl's retail store (not sure how many days you have to do this). I've gone through the in-store return process several times, and have not had any problems.

This is the official website for the Bealls retail stores in Florida. Their products and prices are real. I ordered a shirt and received it with no problems.

I did search some items in Google, and a link brought me to their item page. But then the item page said it was out of stock. So based on some other reviews, it's possible they don't have the most up-to-date inventory tracking. I know they can't link product availability to individual store inventories, unlike some other retailers.

Ultimately, they won't steal your money - it's not a bogus website. If the item ends up not being in stock, you'll get a refund or never be charged. I say, order with confidence.

What you see is what you get, and products ship accurately and quickly. Site has a fabulous layout, tons of product information, great photos and even some videos, plus reviews. I've interacted with Customer Service a few times, and they are personable and very responsive. Products tend to ship quickly. Prices tend to be competitive. Highly recommended.

Ordered a pair of Nike running shoes on sale. Price was good, and no problems with checkout or shipping. Would use again.

Ordered a pair of Samsung refrigerator water filters. Price was great, product arrived on time, and appears to be the genuine article. Would shop here again.

Have ordered many items over the years via Target.com. Paying with their Red Card even gives you a discount and free shipping. Most items can be returned free at any Target store. Will continue to shop with them.

I ordered a Beach Happy tank from here. Checkout and shipping was fine, payed with PayPal. Size was too big, so I actually paid to send it back, and they shipped out an exchanged size free of (additional) charge. No problems, would use again.

Found great deals on Hydro Flask products on this web site. I'd never heard of this company so did some research. Site was just created Apr 28 2018. Additionally, the address and About Us text was all copy-pasted from the official hydroflask.com website. That was another big warning sign to me. Given their prices were way lower than any other website selling Hydro Flask products, I really wanted to buy and save, but ultimately concluded this was probably a too-good-to-be-true website. Just sharing my research with others that may be tempted.
