Have you ever seen your favorite influencer in a super cute top that she found on Romwe.com for $10? I am sure you headed to the website and realized everything is more than affordable, often times with better pricing than Forever 21. However, I have learned quality can be hard to come by when shopping these sites so I developed a little strategy to get the most bang for my buck.
What I have learned after placing a few orders from Romwe, SheInside and Chicwish is that there is a method to the madness of their websites. Their advertisements entice you to buy more for a larger discount or free shipping, but that does not mean you should. Don’t get caught up in a frenzy by adding items to the cart just to get a better overall discount.
Here are a few secrets I use when shopping on these sites to make sure I get decent quality product at an even better discount than originally offered!
- Always investigate each product before you buy. Read the material it is made out of, half of the time I receive a shirt in the mail that looked like cotton or linen and it was completely sheer! Then again, it’s my fault for not checking the material, but still. Items are not always exactly as pictured.
- Know your body measurements. Sometimes the sizing can be way off on these items, so instead of just selecting small, medium or large, choose your size based off of your true body measurements.
- Don’t order anything you need within the next two weeks. There is a 99% chance they won’t come in the 4-7 day shipping window. I think most of these companies drop ship their items rather than carrying actual inventory, so it is almost impossible to predict when they will come. I have never paid for express shipping, if someone else has please let me know how it went in the comment section below.
- Last but definitely the most important secret, in order to get a better discount, add your items to your cart, go to the cart summary before you check out and try to exit the site. On Romwe, you can do this and a new coupon code will pop up! Or, if you exit the page completely, they will email you another coupon code! I always try this method before checking out on these sites.
