1 ‘Zulily.com’ Review
CONS: NOTHING IS RETURNABLE...EVER
-descriptions of merchandise are minimal or non-existent
-they will ask you to review each item you buy, but they do not post the reviews, so you cannot rely on other people's experiences with the products.
-shipping can take a long time. A few things seem to be "in stock" somewhere, but most things are ordered by Zulily after the flash sale closes. It can take six to eight weeks to receive these items. Only one time have they ever cancelled something that I ordered (and refunded it right away).
FYI: They always charge a shipping fee, but there is a "loophole". Once you place an order, anything else you order on that day will be shipped FREE. So I typically will order one small item (typical shipping will be $5.95), and immediately order the rest of my items at no additional shipping. My technique for "saving items" for the second order is to put everything in my cart until I'm done shopping, and then put all-except-one-item in the "save for later" cue. Once I have the free shipping option, I then buy everything I have "saved for later". Works every time!
ALSO: Most of the clothing is their own brand of no-name stuff. Some of it is still reasonable quality (although I have been burned a couple of times - at least it was not an expensive lesson). They do carry some brand-name clothes and children's toys, etc. I have searched online for reviews on other sites, and also to compare prices with the other on-line retailers. Sometimes Zulily has the best price, and sometimes not. Do your own due-diligence!
All-in-all, even though I will spend a fair amount of time researching and choosing from Zulily, it still saves me time over driving all over town, and I do get really good deals!
