As a girl who loves deals, obviously I love going to warehouses like Costco and getting wholesale prices. Luckily even before I had a car in the city, I was within walking distance to a Costco, and once a month would push my grandma cart there, get some supplies and head home. But if you don’t live close to one or don’t have a membership, there is a new app I was just introduced to – Boxed.
Boxed lets you buy wholesale goods from their app or website, and you can get them delivered to your apartment for $6.99. The first time you order, shipping is free, and like any online retailer, there is certain products on sale weekly.
When I saw Gilt was offering a $20 credit recently, I gave Boxed a try. I placed my order Sunday night for two 4-packs of foaming soap ($9.99 each) and some Listerine Breath Strips ($11.99 for 12 packs). Note that you must have a minimum order of $29. On Tuesday, UPS delivered my products to my door. It was so easy – and cheaper than buying these items at Duane Reade.
Categories of products include household (toilet paper, garbage bags), health and beauty (moisturizer, shampoo), grocery (pasta, taco kit), odds and ends (tape, bug spray), and kids and diapers.
Now as a Costco member ($50 annually), I’m not sure I would use this service because I like buying Kirkland brand products. It’s cheaper than brand names and great quality. However, if I did not belong to Costco, this is definitely something I would consider using – especially if I didn’t live within walking distance of Costco. I think if you are moving into a new home or just need to stock up on items and want to save, Boxed might be for you.
Want to give it a try? We’ve got a Boxed Promo Code! Use my promo code, WE55Y and you’ll save $15 off your first order (don’t forget the free shipping on your first order too!).
