Navigating the site
Alice offers a few different options for adding products to your shelf. Your shelf is basically a list of everything you like to buy. After you add items on your shelf. To place an order, you drag the items to the shopping cart. This allow easy access to the things you buy most often.
You can search for products by brand, by room, or you can search for an exact name of a product. If you don't find what you are looking for, you can suggest a product.
After searching for a product, and you decide to add it to your shelf or to your shopping cart, you are given a few options to choose from. These options include, adding to the current order, or saving for future orders, as well as setting how often you need these items. For an example, Alice will send you an email saying you may be running out of "tolet paper".
You can also give the product a custom name, like "Jennifer's Shampoo".
Alice has a deal with manufacturers to ofter electronic coupons automatically for products you buy. If a coupon is out there, Alice will apply it and you can see the saving even before adding the products to your list. For example, in the image below: Suave shampoo is normally priced at $1.10, but a $0.50 coupon is available for you to use. The New item price is then $0.60. No more clipping coupons, or buying a Sunday paper just to get the coupons.
The checkout page summarizes your order and gives you the total amount you saved. After you place your first order, for future order Alice will want a minimum of 6 items per order to help keep the shipping costs free.
My First Order
I placed an order on Alice.com on Wednesday evening, received an order confirmation in minutes. On Thursday, I received a shipping confirmation and a UPS Tracking number. So it appears shipping time for me was 2 business days. The package arrived Monday, and was packed very efficiently. I also like the care taken to secure the tops of bottles with tape, just in case the top opens. Now that's detail to customer service.
The best part of all this, now I don't have to shop at Wal-Mart.
