Caution! Deal-A-Day Sites May Cause An Addiction

The high you get off scoring a deal from a deal a day site is addicting which makes it down right dangerous.  You think the deal sites will help your pocket book but unless you have strong will power that couldn’t be further from the truth.  Start saving a little fun money account for yourself and check out our favorite sites below.  Remember these sites don’t care about your buyer’s remorse so take a deep breath before clicking that mouse.

This is hands down the funniest deal a day site you will find.  Be sure to always read the description because it is guaranteed to give you a laugh.  New deals at midnight (central time) daily.  Also be sure to look out for their woot-offs where new deals are posted throughout the day as items sell out.

GOODS OFFERED:

Kids.woot has a large variety of items from high quality to pure crap.  They sell anything from knock-off silly bandz, to toothbrush sanitizers, to thomas the tank engine, to a Disney toddler bed.  Items are new or refurbished. 

PRICES:

Excellent prices.  Kids.woot prices can’t be beat.  I have yet to find a lower price anywhere online even on clearance or closeout prices.

RETURNS:

Final sale.  No returns.  If your product is defective they urge you to contact the manufacturer not them since they won’t have any replacements in stock.

SHIPPING COSTS:

$5 shipping for everything no matter how large or heavy.

SHIPPING SPEED:

Most items shipped from TX unless its coming direct from the manufacturer.  Not the fastest deal site out there but they do use Fed-ex and you do receive a tracking number.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:

Credit Card & Paypal

CUSTOMER SERVICE:

Quick responses but they really urge their customers to do their own leg work for most problems.  Awesome forum at kids.woot and parent site woot.com that has a wealth of information.

OVERALL:

We love kids.woot for its $5 shipping, excellent prices, and vast amount of products that don’t appear on the rest of the deal sites.

 

We love the look of babysteals.com.  Its clean and easy to navigate.  New deals are posted every morning at 9am (mountain time) and every so often they post a second deal during the day.  If a steal doesn’t sell out you can buy it from their secret archive page. 

GOODS OFFERED:

Large range of sought after designer items, shoes, and practical baby gear.  All items are high quality.  Have started answering the call for fluff and have offered some cloth diapers.

PRICES:

Sometimes the prices are excellent but after you factor in shipping costs some prices aren’t so great so you should do a quick internet search since you can occasionally find items cheaper elsewhere (namely amazon). 

RETURNS:

No returns but you do have 15 minutes to cancel your order.  Its not much but its better then some of the other sites.

SHIPPING COSTS:

Shipping costs are fair.

SHIPPING SPEED:

Shipping is really fast.  I have received confirmations in a matter of minutes after ordering.  All items ship from Utah from USPS.  Local pick-up available.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:

Google Checkout

CUSTOMER SERVICE:

Quick responses and solutions.

OVERALL:

We love babysteals and kidsteals for their quality baby and kids items now only if they could combine their carts so we could lower our shipping costs.

A one deal at a time site meaning they have more than one deal a day.  Mamabargains.com offers one item at a time until it sells out or everyone loses interest.  If you are looking for a deal on a stroller then this is the deal site to stalk.

GOODS OFFERED:

Boutique items and practical baby gear including strollers.  Always high quality.  A great place to get shoes although the sizes tend to be on the small side.

PRICES:

Good prices.  After shipping is calculated its a good idea to scan the internet because sometimes similar prices can be found elsewhere.  They do have screaming deals on some items that you will not find anywhere else no matter how hard you look.

RETURNS:

Final Sale.  Must contact them within 10 days if you have a defective product in which case they will help you deal with the manufacturer.  Also all items sold on the site have NO warranty.

SHIPPING COSTS:

Fair charges.  Given options between USPS and UPS.

SHIPPING SPEED:

Items are out the door quickly at mamabargains.  Ships from Utah, local pick-up is available.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:

Credit Card.  No other options available at this time.

CUSTOMER SERVICE:

Quick responses.  They like to maintain a casual and fun atmosphere but sometimes that comes across as unprofessional and even immature at times. 

OVERALL: 

We love mamabargains for their great prices on the big items like strollers and baby carriers.  When they are selling items in lots of styles and sizes its hard to find the style and size you want quickly which is a problem since you are racing to buy it before it sells out to all the other mamas.

Be sure to check in on this site around the holidays because they feature a “Baby Shower” where they offer a large span of items at the same time.  New deals are posted Monday through Saturday at 8am (mountain time).

GOODS OFFERED:

The usual top quality baby items as well as several cloth diaper brands and accessories.

PRICES:

Excellent prices, can’t be beat elsewhere.

RETURNS:

No returns unless item is defective.

SHIPPING COSTS:

Prices are fair.  If you think the shipping is outrageous be sure to check your cart for items from past sales.  There system doesn’t clear the cart day to day so sometimes this can add to bloated shipping estimates.

SHIPPING SPEED:

Good.  Other sites are faster but items arrive in a timely fashion.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:

Credit Card and Paypal

CUSTOMER SERVICE:

I have never had to contact them so that should say a lot.

OVERALL:

We love Babyhalfoff for their great prices and because they show the love to the cloth diapering mamas.
