Meet My New Maid: Alice!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alice.com. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’ve heard of Alice.com on a few of the other blogs I frequent, but I never checked it out until now.

WHAT. HAVE. I. BEEN. WAITING. FOR?!?! Alice is amazing! I think this is going to revolutionize shopping.

I don’t know about you, ladies, but I just HATE shopping– the traffic, the hassles, the long checkout lines— it’s a very distasteful chore and I avoid it to the point of toilet paper liquidation. Yes! I confess! I would rather be on the brink of NO toilet paper than have to trek the 20 minutes through crazy traffic to my local WalMart, lug my squeaky grocery cart through that massive store, languish through decades-long checkouts, and then be rifled like a criminal as I pass through those stupid “anti-theft” doors. Kids, use the newspapers!

So Alice is a Godsend. And I think you will think so, too. I’ll try to condense how the website works.

  • Registration is free and quick. You can choose grocery-related preferences, or skip that step.
  • You create a “shopping list” or products (non-perishables only) that you buy. Alice.com will apply any available coupons or discounts automatically.
  • You can tell Alice when you want to be reminded that you will need the product again. For example, I chose Folger’s Custom Blend brand coffee, the big size, and am having Alice remind me that I need to stock up again in 2 weeks. (HEE HEE kidding! I don’t drink THAT much coffee! Just every month is fine. šŸ˜‰ ).
  • You can got through Alice’s listings of stuff, choosing what you usually buy (or new stuff you want to try- whatever). You are essentially creating a list.
  • Alice is not a retailer! Alice is the organized “maid” (kind of like Rosie the Robot, in my opinion) who does all the stuff in the background. Alice essentially connects you and the manufacturer. This is how you can get such good prices and discounts on stuff.
  • There is FREE SHIPPING! Everything you order comes straight to your door — no driving, yay!– with no shipping charges.
  • Currently, Alice accepts VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. I’d like to see them accept PayPal someday. I’m going to throw that in the Suggestion Box.
  • Right now, Alice is only available to residents of the U.S.
  • There’s a very nice Refer A Friend perk at Alice.com, too. I’m your friend, right?? :awe: I’m referring you! Leave me a comment and I’ll include my referral code. For every friend you refer, you get 3% back of your yearly purchases, and the friend gets a $10 credit in their Alice account once they spend at least $50. Nice!

I think Alice.com is totally cool! I am in the process of building my list, and I intend to ship out an order soon; I’ll be sure to give an update of my experience.

    This sounds cool, definitely going to check it out and will mention it on my Friday “Things I Learned This Week” post with a link back here at http://www.zemeks.blogspot.com

  3. akaGaGa Says:

    As another one who hates to shop, this sounds pretty intriguing. Send me that link, m’dear.

    And Alice? There’s another one of you, too. Just watch out for those rabbit holes. šŸ™‚

  4. Connie Says:

    ah… but what are their shipping costs to APO addresses? Going to check it out. Netgrocer.com does well on s&h, but they don’t always have everything I want.

  5. Karen Zemek Says:

    I’d like to try this. Go ahead and email me your referral code.

  6. Renee Says:

    I have heard a lot about alice.com, too. In fact, I was going to sign up… (I got a gift card to alice.com. woohoo!) So please send me your referral link, and I’ll sign up with it. Of course, you’re my friend! <3 LOL šŸ™‚

  7. Connie Says:

    Hi Rebecca, I checked, no. They say they do not, yet. I can imagine they might eventually, as a similar company, netgrocer.com, will. They charge for shipping, but it isn’t bad at all through APO. I can order some things that I simply cannot get overseas, or other things that are so crazy expensive that paying postage is a small sacrifice! I’ll have to look into Alice again in future, sometimes netgrocer doesn’t carry what I want. Perhaps they Alice is simply new. Netgrocer has been around at least 7-8 years.

  8. Carole Says:

    I am thinking of trying this out and I THOUGHT I had seen you talk about it here, and I was right – send me your referral link, my friend! šŸ™‚

  9. Rena Says:

    I would love to look into the Alice.com site, please send me your referral code.

    Thanks šŸ™‚
