Online shopping is becoming more and more popular, especially for us parents who find shopping either a nightmare task with the kids or simply, do not have the time to do it. I was asked to review the Achica website and I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to register, get started and purchase a lot of decent products at great prices.
Achica is the leading members-only luxury lifestyle store, offering desirable brands at great prices.
The way the website works is that you get daily shopping promotions that are emailed to you in advance (so you can plan when you need to jump on the site and spend, spend spend!) and these promotions last up to 72 hours long. I say up to because once all the stock is gone, the promotion will be over. You are offered a wide range of products from furniture, soft furnishings, bed and bath, kitchenware, garden furniture, art, travel, fashion accessories and childrenswear.
Registration is really simple and you have to enter a few basic details about yourself, name and email etc the usual. You are then sent a welcome email from Achica telling you that you are now a member and you now have access to the big discounts on top name brands.
The products I went for are a lovely set of bedding & cotton quilt for Isla’s cot and 2 nice warm microfleece throws for the sofa and Noah’s cotbed.
I noticed that these goodies were coming up as I get their newsletters with what is being added to the site, I then waited for the sale to start and I grabbed them quick. The way the “shops” work is that they have a certain amount of products for that particular brand and once they are gone, they are gone. So you if there is something you are particularly interested in, I wouldn’t hang around. The sales are fantastic value, you can get a very large discount off of some of your favourite brands and also have a chance to see new brands.
You can clearly see a photo of the products in the shops and the Achica price and what it was originally, and the big “Add to Basket” button allows you to purchase them quickly. As you can see from the third product, the Clothes Tree, there are only 8 of these left and it warns you that it is getting low, just in-case you think you might wait until later.
If you want to keep an eye on the sales then you can also scroll down to the bottom of the homepage and you will see a list of sales that are going to come on to the site over the next few days, you cannot click to see what the products might be, but you get a brief description of what it is and you can always check out the brands website.
I would highly recommend this website to anyone that likes a little thrifty shopping spree, there are some amazing products and Achica work with some great brands. I have discovered products on Achica that I would never have known about, some great ideas for the home and some fantastic savings, it really is an inspiring shopping experience.
It’s free to join ACHICA and, as a valued member, you can get your hands on luxurious items for your home, garden and lifestyle every day of the week.
So, what’s stopping you from registering?? There are hundreds of perfect gifts for Mothers Day, so you can treat yourself, your partner or your Mummy.
