I bought a little over 100 of custom made bottles for wedding favors. Everyone loved them - the OO tastes great, the packaging and labeling are beautiful and professional and we got a lot of compliments on them. HAPPY!

Bought a cheese of the month box for my parents and they loved it. They don't like anything but food so was right up their alley - several different cheeses each month with a card explaining the names/favors. Didn't have any issues so can't complain!

Sticky9 is great - I've used them when they were under the name stickygram and again after they renamed to sticky9. I bought magnets each time - the first time I used them everything was fine. The second time they accidentally sent me the wrong magnets. I wanted to use them in some Christmas gifts so I couldn't wait for them to send new ones since by the time they'd arrive it would be too late. They still sent me new ones but they gave me a refund for the error. They ship pretty quickly, the magnets are good quality and they are super cute - they're a great idea for stocking stuffers since you can make multiple pictures and give them out individually.

Bottom line is the content is pretty good, but customer service is bad and to me, makes it absolutely not worth it to work with this company.

I bought 2 3-month gift subscriptions for my nephews, where I wanted the first crate delivered to me, and then the remaining crates delivered directly to them. Due to a mistake on their end, they sent the 2nd crate to me (even though I changed the shipping address before their deadline). It took weeks for them to agree to send out two new crates to the correct addresses - and when the time came to send them out, they only sent out shipping confirmation for one. I had to follow up, again, to find out where the second crate was.

The response times are really slow - when I first contacted them, it would take 24+ hours to answer email. It look 3 days before I received a response on my last email. They don't offer phone support. I originally contacted them at the end of October asking them to send out new crates. It is now the end of December and my issue was finally resolved where they basically skipped October completely, and sent out a December crate instead.

I've used a lot of subscription boxes (birchbox, posh pak, fancy) all with circumstances that required a fair bit of communication and assistance, and lootcrate is behind on what appears to be standard for customer service for this industry. Not worth it - go with someone else.

Love this subscription box for girls. I bought 3 subscriptions for my 3 nieces as gifts. They range from ages 5-12 and the boxes were slightly different to cater to their age.
My nieces love the content, the customer service is great to deal with, the shipping is fast and consistent and overall everything was a positive experience. They were quick to answer my questions and assist with changes. Def recommended!

This site offered an automatic feeder at the lowest price compared to competitor sites. I never heard of it before but saw it was a trusted site on Google so I went ahead and ordered and received the product quickly and without any issues. I would use them again.

I can't remember where I heard of fancy.com but when I went on the site I saw they had a sort of "mystery box" thing (fancy box) where you get a package every month with some cool stuff in it. I tried it out and I like it, been getting it for about 3 months now. It's good for having some items that you can use as gifts since you get a few things in it each month. Last month I got a flatiron! I'm keeping that though.

Bought dry goods, a fruit fly culture and springtails. Happy overall with everything but the fruit fly culture. About 2 weeks after I got it I noticed it had mites. I've raised fruit flies for my dart frogs for a few years now and I've never had mites even if the culture was a month old (I raise hydei). I've read on boards they typically have mites in the ff cultures/media so maybe avoid live stuff and stick with dry goods.

I love the stuff they have on this site but was afraid to risk buying from them since most of their stuff is a bit pricey. To try them out, I recently purchased some kids toys and clothes (nothing very expensive) and was pleased. They do take a while to process/ship, but I remember they list the expected arrival dates on the items before I purchased them so I knew that ahead of time, and they don't charge you until your stuff ships. I like this site and would use them again, but I'm not sure I'd ever buy a $6000 dresser from them or anything.

I was searching for an eye cream and I found it on skinstore for the same price that was listed on amazon. I decided to give this site a try and I didn't have an problems with it. They offered me free shipping and it got to me pretty quick. The only issue was that they used USPS with signature, so I missed the delivery and they wouldn't leave the package with my doorman. It took an extra week to get to me but if i was there to get the package I would have had it in 3 days or so from ordering. While that's not really the site's fault, if you use them I'd specify any delivery instructions so you don't have a similar issue. They included some free samples in my package which was nice. I'd use this place again.

Great site to order groceries from home. Easy to use, though prices are slightly higher and you won't find much bargain brands in their inventory. This site is made for convenience not so much saving money IMHO. I like it though, and use over and over. Food is good quality but I've had some issues with produce not being consistently good quality every time, but they are accommodating if you contact their customer service. They also have an app which is pretty good.

I ordered a graphics card but the box was damaged in the shipping process. Since this was for a gift, I requested a new one be sent and have the old one returned. Newegg handled everything quickly. They scheduled UPS to come and take the old one back, and they sent me a new one and mailed it to me. The whole return process took about a week and a half, including the delivery. And no return shipping... which was nice. Would use again.

Smh, this site is just OK.
Don't come here looking for exclusive shoes in a showroom customized just for you. You'll be disappointed if you do. BIG **FYI** Once you make a purchase, you become a "member" and they will charge you every month for a future purchase, unless you tell them not to by the 5th or so each month. If you want to cancel your "membership" you have to call... annoying.
However, the shoes are actually pretty good for $40. I've never had a problem with shipping or had to return anything so i can't speak about customer service.
I've ordered several pairs of shoes, a handbag and a travel bag. Everything was good quality and very stylish. People will compliment you.

Forget the website where you have to pay per hike. $40 a year membership gets you hikes every weekend - and you're supporting a great cause. Volunteer leaders (just regular hikers) lead the trips. They have back packing, kayaking, trips and more. Some require fees but most dont, if they do they are modest. You can also bring friends! However you have to find your own transportation... because this is the NYC chapter they usually have hikes accessible by the metro north. Win!

So I ordered some fruit flies online from this site. They arrived next day as promised and the cultures were producing and healthy. I had ordered one particular species but they actually sent me the wrong one... when I alerted them they assured me it is a rare occurrence and they quickly rectified the situation by sending the right ones to me at no cost. Based on the health of the cultures and the way they handled my situation i will definitely use them again!

I always had a positive experience with tropiflora. The plants are just beautiful and healthy. I've order many tillandsias and cryptanthus from them. I once ordered a crypt for my terrarium and instead of one offset they sent me a HUGE plant with over 12 pups! An expected surprise. Beautiful collection and fair prices, I'd say. However, I have encountered mealy bugs on one order, but it took a long time for me to notice so I didn't call them. I was able to successful treat the affected plants with some Indoor Pharm insecticide though and the plants held up well.

I've ordered plants from the website and have visited their table at some reptile expos. Overall I'm more neutral about the site for live goods. The plants are pretty small for the price but they were healthy and mine are doing well. I found out one of the plants I ordered had scale, so I called up not really expecting anything but they actually refunded me the money for the plant but I didn't have to ship it back. Discouraging, even though it's not uncommon to get a plant with bugs from vendors. I was very happy with the way they handled it though.

A site similar to groupon, I've used lifebooker to purchase two deals and I'm happy to say they were both hassle-free experiences. One I redeemed with no problems and the other I'm going to use soon. I would use again.

It seems like a lot of people had problems with livingsocial when they ordered the Amazon deal. I used LS for the Amazon deal and there was no problem for me, and I also purchased another deal for a stay at an upstate B&B with no problems. For just purchasing and redeeming deals, I think the site is great. I've never had an issue where I had to call customer service so that could be another story... but overall... I'm happy.

I received a bunch of things I wanted from this site and I'm really happy with everything! However I only got accessories and general things for the apartment that they sell. They have a really awesome collection of apartment stuff I guess similar to what Urban Outfitters has. I don't know how their clothes are but for what i got, I'm very happy.
