online shopping is one of the greatest gifts technology has given us.
however, sometimes the free shipping + free returns leads to more purchases than we would make in real life (as in, if not sitting on ass with cocktail in hand)
sloooooowly close the computer. and walk away.
now, there are ways to save while getting your clothes sent to your house for free!
online shopping just got even better!
during one of my many nights when I should have been sleeping but was instead perusing the interwebs, I came across a website called TRY.
with the invention of online shopping soon came the creation of free shipping and free returns, and online shopping habits got even worse. If it was free shipping and free returns, why wouldn't I order two sizes of something to try and then send back whatever doesn't fit?
however..... with that luxury comes the pain in the ass of waiting for the return to be processed and the money to get put back into your bank account. (this is especially true when there are big semi annual sales like at nordstrom or shopbop and more massive quantities of things may be purchased).
Now, with try.com it has made it where you literally don't ever need to leave the home to shop again :)
netflix + wine + pajamas + online shopping lovers rejoice!
here is how it works (taken from their website because I'm lazy and they explain their own product better than I could)
Try.com makes it incredibly easy to try clothes from online stores at home. Now, instead of having to buy clothes up front, you can try them at home for free. You get 10 days from when you receive your clothes to decide what you want to keep or return. You only get charged for the clothes you decide to keep. All packages ship with a free pre-paid return label. There is no additional cost for using Try.com, you always pay the same price as you see on the retailer's website, and it's always Free Shipping and Free Returns.
sign. me. up!
seriously though, when I order 5 things and return 4 or 5 of them, waiting for the return to go back into my account is the most annoying part :) this will be life changing.
