I had heard about Alice from Money Saving Mom, but had never tried it, until I was able to get a $5 gift card from Swagbucks for cashing in only 12 of my swagbucks.
I case you haven't heard about Alice, it's a website where you can buy all types of household products and shipping is always free. They have a 6 item minimum order, except on your first order. Your first order can only be one item, if you want. Alice also has clip-free coupons that you can use to bring the prices down on some items. There is a small catch, you can only use one coupon on one like item. So, if you wanted to use a coupon on 2 same brand shampoos, you would have to pick a different scent, for it to be counted as different.
This is the order I received after using my $5 gift card. I was able to purchase all this for only $4.80 after coupons. The total before coupons was $7.96. I think that was a really good deal since I bought 5 things essentially for free because I traded in my swagbucks, plus it was delivered right to my door by UPS.
Here are some of the deals they have today at Alice: Clairol Hair Color $0.90, Good Start Infant Formula for $2.02, Lipton Tea $0.59, and Brut deodorant $1.27. The way to find the best deals is to click on Other Ways to Shop, and then Shop the Best Deals. That will bring up the top 50 deals.
Alice is offering their gift cards for up to 30% off. That makes Alice an even better deal! If you haven't tried Alice yet, you can sign up here. If you have already used their service, what's the best buy you've gotten?
