Welcome to my new blog 🙂 Hope you all are doing great!!
Today lets talk about something interesting and what can be better than shopping for your kids, isn’t it?
Shopping for your kids is a never-ending process but it is way more exciting and enjoyable than shopping for yourself. I am sure you all would agree with me, don’t you? I too love to shop for my daughter but taking her along to shop every time is a big no-no. I am sure most of you understand the reason for No :D. Therefore I prefer to shop online, it is convenient, you can take hours to decide and above all, you have control over your spending. Trust me we can easily go overboard while shopping.
Among all the online shopping sites, I prefer “FIRSTCRY” to shop for my daughter.
FIRSTCRY is Asia’s Largest Online Portal for Baby and Kids Products. My first experience with Firstcry was before my daughter`s birth. From then till now, I use the firstcry app every single time to shop for everything from diapers to dresses, toys, books etc…
I would like to discuss a few aspects which we look for when we shop online, So let’s get started.
QUALITY OF PRODUCTS
I know Quality is the top priority for us when we shop for our kids. As I told you guys I shop from firstcry every month since last three years and trust me I never seize any bad quality Product up till now, whether it’s a dress, toys, books or any other baby essential. Quality of material used is really good but it also depends on the product you buy. If you go for a product which is not branded then you might encounter bad quality so you have to take a glimpse on reviews first, before placing an order.
I would give ten on ten for this. I love the first cry because of their fast delivery. Whenever I placed an order, I got the delivery within 3 days especially diapers and wipes which I really want to be delivered fast. Though couple of deliveries(out of many) were delayed, it is okay to have some tolerance and dispensation for hardworking packaging and delivery team. Almost always they met the delivery time promised while placing an order.
They have easy return policies. I personally never faced any problem while returning any product. We just have to place a return request, sometimes you have to attach a picture of the defective or broken product. Once it gets approval, mostly the same day they refund money in your firstcry account. If you ordered wrong size dress or shoes which happens to me most of the time, they do exchange them without any question being asked.
I do agree pricing of firstcry`s products is a bit on a higher side. You get a good deal on their diapering section and bath & skin section but other products are often priced on a higher side, particularly toys and dresses. Thus few tricks may come handy to save some money when you shop from firstcry .Below are few of them
- Install firstcry app or subscribe to them, almost every day you will get good deals on any particular section. be it diapering or dress or toys. If you are looking for, toys for example, wait for a couple of days and you surely will get a day to shop when a heavy discount is given on toys. In Short, be patient and wait for the discount day.
- Use coupon codes, a great way to save some money. Often they give cashback or some per cent off, use that cash back for your next purchase
- When using a coupon code, try to purchase items which are not sold on discounts. Using the coupon code on a product being sold on full price gives you more percentage discount plus better quality. what else, you mostly get fresh arrivals when you are ready to pay full price.
- Try to place an order of min RS 500/- you will not have to pay the delivery charges. Thus plan accordingly to avoid delivery charge.
These are few tricks which I use and it really helps me save a lot of money, and when I say a lot, trust me it is alot because value/price of the order may be small but frequency at which you order for your kid is often.
They have a huge collection in each category from big brands to small brands, from low price range to high price range, almost everything you can find there. I usually prefer to shop for casual wear more rather than party wear and I find their casual wear collection pretty good.
I genuinely trust firstcry online store all because of my positive experience which I had with them. It’s like my go-to place whenever I need to buy anything for my baby. The only element which I don’t like about firstcry is their franchises, I always had a bad experience with them. They don’t have the entire collection which we find online. Their staff are also not very supportive and quite rude. Thus I truly recommend firstcry but exclusively their online store.
