About Me

I love love love to shop online. I will not purchase anyhing until I find the best deal I can for an item. I read reviews, both expert and consumer so that I can get a true picture of the item I intend to buy. I guess I am what you call frugal (cheapskate).

How I Can Help

love to research products before buying-spend lots of time making sure I get good quality for the least amount of money

I see a lot of negative reviews for this site and I'm not sure the site itself is to blame. I looked at this site as being kind of a Craigslist for animals only safer for the animals. Petfinders posts pics and bios of pets for shelters throughout the U.S.A. If you had issues with trying to adopt an animal, I believe it is the shelters who are at fault in having outdated information as to whether or not a pet is still available. In searching for a dog for myself I spent over a year searching on as well as a similar site and at local shelters in my area. Each shelter promoting adoptions on Petfinder has their own adoption process. Some seemed to be extremely lengthy. Also, so many people have been adopting pets since the pandemic began that going through all the applications takes awhile especially if the shelter is all voluntary. I just wanted to explain this so you don't become discouraged from adopting. I actually was able to adopt my dog from a profiled dog that I found on Petfinders and she is perfect for me and my circumstances. If you are in a hurry to adopt and don't want to take the time to apply, do a meet and greet in your home, and pay sometimes a nominal fee depending on your circumstances, you may instead want to visit your area shelters and find your new pet.

This website offers deals on audible books. They certainly don't have a huge selection but they have audible books ranging in price from free-$4.99. This is a site worth subscribing to and checking in daily. It only takes you a short amount of time to browse the selections to see if there is a book that may interest you. Happy listening.


Everything I have purchased from has been great. (I haven't been too any of their stores). I've ordered small appliances, televisions, batteries, movies, Amazon products that were cheaper here than at Amazon, and also some miscellaneous items. They have deals of the day, a rewards program, and free shipping. I have never had any problems. Shipping is fast and prices seem to be comparable. I would recommend this store highly.


Upfront: I have ordered from this site one time. I ordered a pair of Reebok sneakers and a Reebok jacket. I am not a connisuer of name brand athletic apparel or shoes but these seem fine to me. The prices were great and I had a promo code for % off and free shipping. It took maybe ten days to receive my items but I didn't need them in a hurry. I won't go as far as saying I would recommend this site just yet as I would need to order a few more times to make sure I was happy with those experiences as well.


I have shopped here several times and always had great service. I ordered disposable vinyl gloves, urinals, special medical soaps, powder. Unfortunately Covid-19 has made it impossible to get disposable gloves or soaps due to the shortage of these supplies right now. But they do offer so many other medical supplies at a very good discount. Hopefully the pandemic will eventually be contained in the future because I would definitely go here first to check their prices of medical supplies.

Unfortunately CallingMart not only raised their prices, they now charge a service fee for the most popular brands (at&t, Verizon). I'm not sure about other retailers. Their prices just aren't worth the time anymore.

I just discovered and used this site today

I just discovered and used this site today. I am a pay as you go cell phone subscriber and was able to purchase a refill card at a small discount and avoided any tax and surcharge fee. The site allows you to pay through paypal. They offer many different brands (verizon, at&t. Tracfone, net10, etc). They also provide a promo code occasionally. The pin number to add minutes is given to ypu as soon as payment clears. It's not a huge savings, but every little bit helps.

I don't really utilize shoprunner too much anymore. There selection of stores has dwindled and some of the stores now require a minimum purchase. I believe it's because many more stores are offering their own promo codes for discount shipping. And now with Covid-19, it is harder for most stores to offer free 2 day shipping.

I have been a member of shoprunner for a few years...

I have been a member of shoprunner for a few years now and due to my use of this service, I have 1). Saved hundreds on 2 day shipping costs and 2). Have not had to pay for it due to my usage. Although it is true that they have a limited number of merchants to use the service with, there are a few popular sites; American Eagle,, macmall, Ebags. You can get a free 30 day trial and hopefully they will continue to add more merchants. Happy Shopping.

I don't shop here anymore. They have closed so many stores. Their merchandise is never in stock. It's totally different in a bad way. I would not recommend shopping here anymore.

Very good experience!

I have ordered from this site several times and have had no problems. They also have a service to order and pick your items up at your local store to save on shipping costs like the other giant retailers. They always have sales and coupon codes to utilize as well as their shopyourway reward program. Would recommend to everyone!


I love this site! They are a middleman for some great products. I have purchased toys, home decor, rugs, a few pieces of furniture, clothing, essential oils, shoes, kitchen items, and lawn decor at discounted prices. I have never once been disappointed with what I received. BUT BEFORE BUYING ANYTHING, I research the internet to ensure I'm getting the best price and I search reviews of the products if they are available. This sites merchandise changes daily/every few days. I don't often purchase clothing because much of it is made in China and I'm very selective regarding the brands I buy. They do offer a lot of yoga/athletic apparel from some top brands. It's a fun site to browse. WARNING: if you are expecting to receive your items quickly, this might not be the best place for you to shop. They are very upfront about shipping times though. Shipping can be costly but if you purchase something you find at a low cost shipping is $5.99-$6.99 and then shipping is free for the rest of the day. If you order on Friday you get the whole weekend for free shipping. I know some people have had a bad experience with Zulily but if you take the time to research before you buy and you purchase brands you have heard of, you can get some very good deals.


If you are looking for anything to wear on a vacation (clothing, jewelry, accessories) in a warm climate OR home furnishings where you would want to decorate for a summer like atmosphere, this is the place to shop. They offer a higher end of merrchandise than Walmart, Target, or any of the StageStores (Peebles, Palaus Royal, Goody's, Bealls). They do however offer some of the same merchandise as the StageStores so you do need to go back and forth between the two sites to see who offers the best deal. They offer different coupons everyday (anywhere from 15 to 30%) and free shipping-lower shipping depending on how much you spend. For example: Today- 30% off, $10 off $35, and there is no minimum free shipping. Needless to say, I ordered a lot this time. Great place to shop!


To be up front, I have never ordered any products, ONLY VOUCHERS from reputable retailers such as Amazon, Dominos, and Davids Cookies. I have never had any issues with utilizing the vouchers and received the voucher codes as promised. A great way to save money (usually 40%-50%). Before buying a voucher, make sure you visit the retailer website to check out shipping costs.


I ordered a 50 inch screen TV from TigerDirect and had no issues whatsoever. They had the best price and shipping was free. The TV was delivered in a very timely manner. Also a good site to utilize if you have a shop runner subscription for even faster two day shipping.


I ordered a few items from the site recently and had absolutely no issues with ordering, payment, or shipment and receiving my items. I read the fine print to make sure I was aware of how long it would take to recieve my purchase (they are up front about this). I cannot speak to the quality of all of their items or whether they are knock offs as I only ordered a few fabric/metal belts. I do recall ordering a pair of nyla boots from here a few years ago and experienced no problems at that time either. I did have a several weeks wait (3-4 weeks) for the boots. They let me know the progress of my shipment when it shipped. Hope this helps.

Hi Joanne, Thank you for sharing your experience and we're glad to hear you're happy with all your purchases. We look forward to shipping you more of your favorite designer items for less! Thank you for shopping with BTR!


I've ordered a few things from this site. They offer some very good deals on cell phone accessories. From buying a product to recieving it, this site was excellent.


I ordered a blu-ray player this past November around Thanksgiving time. It did take about three weeks to arrive. When it arrived, it came in its original box only. It wasn't carefully packaged inside another box with any kind of stuffing to protect it, it came like I just took it off the shelf in a store! I thought perhaps my kids opened the package before I got home from work... but no... anyways, I lucked out and so far the player works. Would I order again from this site? Not so sure... things could go either way when ordering from here... also make sure you understand that many items tend to be refurbished so read the description carefully


From ordering to recieving the item I ordered, this online experience was great! If you are a fan of NYX cosmetics and/or fragrances for men/women, then check out this site. Although they don't have a huge selection, they do have specials everyday that are worth a daily check. They have their own site and also sell on amazon marketplace and ebay. Ratings on both of these sites are very favorable. I will be ordering from this site again.


This site offers an array of home decorations and gifts. There are many types of decor so you would more than likely find something in your taste. Prices are fairly reasonable but I would purchase items based on consumer reviews. Shipping is a little steep but you can usually find a promo code to use to save money. I would not hesitate to order from this company again.


Love this site... watch all my shows I can't get on huluplus or netflix...


When you go to shop at this site, you will find that it is a conglomerate of several stores (Peebles, Goodys, Bealls, Palais Royal, Stage). I believe you can type in any of these stores and they lead you to pretty much the same merchandise. I have discovered though that Bealls offers much more of a selection than the others (maybe the main store). Anyway, offered for sale; mens, womens, teens, childrens, and baby clothing with brands such as southpole, levis, chaus, union bay, sag harbor, carters etc etc ( a little something for everyone newborn to elderly. They sell shoes, (athletic, casual, dressy, boots), jewelry, perfume, makeup, some home items, think of it is asmall department store. THEY OFFER GREAT SALES, COUPONS, and much of the time LOW COST OR FREE SHIPPING. I have purchased anumber of items from this site and have never had an issue. A very nice place to shop.


Okay... I have been a subscriber for over a year now... huluplus offers some different content than netflix does ( some of it newer, American Dad, Bones, Southpark, Once Upon a Time for example). The cost is 7.99 a month. I guess I would say to someone thinking about subscribing Use the Free Trial first to see if it has enough content that you like otherwise, you may find that it isn't worth your while to pay for this service. Also, there are short commercial interruptions... nothing like you experience on regular tv... but still not ad free. I have kept my subscription along with netflix only because I decided not to pay $80 a month for cable anymore. All and all, I have found the service to be worth the 7.99 fee.
