When I first heard about Wish.com I was a little skeptical. Products at rock-bottom prices that I see on the high end shop-websites?? After making a few orders on Wish.com there are a few things I have learned. I’ve had a few friends ask me how I order from Wish so I decided to share my tips with my faves:
1. Make sure to use coupons codes, especially on your first order!
I got 50% off my first order, which save me A LOT! After the first order, the coupons aren’t as good, but always search for existing customer coupons and you’ll at least get 10% off. Feel free to use my referral code that will get you 10-50% off your order —>> Referral Code: jmgvddx
2. ALWAYS read the reviews.
I live by the product reviews on this website. There is a section that tells you if the sizing is typically “too small,” “just right,” or “too big.” This is how I determine what size to buy. Sometimes the clothes are in Asian sizing so it’s helpful to know if you need to size up in order to avoid popping a seam! The picture above was all perfect sizing due to reading reviews. My bomber jacket was $6.80 + $4 shipping ($10.80 total), My shirt was $1.70 + $1 shipping ($2.70 total…say whaaa?!!), and my pants were $5.10 + $3 ($8.10 total). So overall, my outfit cost $21.60! I usually spend that much on one item so I was happy with this outcome of multiple items.
3. Always check the “shipping information”.
There is a section that includes the shipping information for the product. In this section it will tell you how much shipping costs and how long the expected delivery will be. This is super important because you could find a product for $3 and the shipping will be $9 so it’s not really worth it. You can also determine how long you will be waiting for the product. Another helpful part of the product reviews are that a lot of people will write if shipping was faster or slower than expected.
4. You win some you lose some
I have had mostly positive outcomes with my products, but there were a few duds. I ordered the sweater below because the pictures were SO cute and everyone raved about how soft the material is. Well, they weren’t wrong about the softness, but the color I ordered looked waaay different in the picture compared to what actually arrived on my doorstep. The color I ordered was supposed to be a coral-y color, but the product came in a bubble gum pink color. Honestly, I’m totally still wearing this around the house, but probably not in public (who knows, it may make an appearance at a school drop off).
5. Buy with other shoppers.
On most items, there is the option to buy with other shoppers. If you buy with someone else, the price is cheaper. Sometimes there is no one else to buy with, but you will get the option to purchase it at regular price and be credited to your account if someone else buys it with you within a few days. This feature has saved me quite a bit overall.
6. There are more products on Wish than just grown-up clothes.
I have bought quite a few clothes for myself, but I have also bought quite a few outfits for my kids. The outfit on my little girl below came with the long shirt and leggings for $4.80 + $3 shipping, so $7.80 total for a top and bottoms. Along with kids clothes, I also bought a baby doll stroller, a spider-man shooter, a My Little Pony necklace, and some baby proofing drawer locks. Make sure to dig around on products you wouldn’t expect- Wish probably has it.
Overall, I am mostly satisfied with the products I’ve ordered from Wish.com. Like I mentioned, I’ve had a couple duds, but a lot of the shops offer returns for thirty days. I must say- I am a bit addicted. I love shopping! Wish makes my shopping guilt lessen when I see the charges in my bank account (phew).
