We Need An Alice.

This giveaway is closed.  The FIVE winners of $100 to Alice are Kellyn, Christa, Misty, Stefani, and Christine Bowman.  Congrats, ladies!  Enjoy shopping at Alice.  As for the rest of you, don’t forget that EVERYONE gets $10 off your first $50 order, so go forth and shop!

Ever since we had kids, my husband has been fond of saying, “We need an Alice.”  And then he would go on to describe what our lives would be like if we had an Alice to take care of us, like the Bradys.  So I couldn’t wait to tell him about a new website, just launching today, called Alice.  This Alice isn’t going to come to your home and cook your meals and fold your laundry, but she does promise that you will never run out of toilet paper again.

Alice is basically Netflix for household goods.  It is free to join, and when you log in, you can begin to create your personalized list of products that you use regularly.  You then choose to add the product to your current order (like if you need it ASAP) or save it for later (if you know it is something you use but you don’t need it at the moment.)  Then you can schedule auto-reminders for however often you need to replenish that particular item.  Alice keeps a record of your products so you don’t have to go hunting for your favorite brand each time you want to shop, which makes Alice a HUGE time saver in the long run.  And then the products are delivered right to your door.

A few years ago, when I was stuck at home with three small kids all winter, I started having my groceries delivered.  It was such a treat.  But once the kids were in school, I couldn’t really justify the $10 delivery charge, so I stopped.  But the cool thing about Alice?  No delivery charge.  EVER.

And also, they will automatically find and apply available coupons to your purchases. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m not a coupon-cutter.  However, I’ll gladly take them when they’re offered to me.

And it gets better.  In celebration of their launch, Alice has given me $500 in credit to give away. I’ve decided to award five readers $100 to spend at Alice.com.  I will randomly select the five winners on Tuesday, June 30, to receive $100 in Alice credit. 

Plus, each person who signs up will get a $10 credit in their Alice account once they spend at least $50 on the site.

Here’s what you need to do.

1) Join Alice.com through my referral link.

2) Leave a comment here about your impressions of the site.

You have to have an account to deposit the $100 into, so be sure to sign up and remember the email address that you used.  I will need that information if you win.

Honestly, I’m so excited about this site.  Yes, I get a small referral bonus if you sign up from my link, but I would want to tell you about it even if there were no benefit to me.  I hate dragging home big cases of paper towels and toilet paper from the store, and I hate even more running out at midnight for certain female essentials that have a way of running out at the least opportune time.  I, for one, will be placing my first Alice order today.

  1. I signed up through your link. This looks like an awesome site! Hopefully I’ll be able to stop the coupon madness now! Thanks for letting us know about it! (and for the give away!)

  2. As a graduate student, full time employee and mother of two..this site may just become my new best friend…except I must give props to my real best friend, Gay, who gave me the notice about your site and Alice.

  3. That is such a cool site! I’ve been wondering for a long time why a site like that doesn’t exist. My favorite feature is the way they remind you to buy stuff at certain intervals. Brilliant!

  4. Cool! Thanks for the link. What I love best about the site is the free shipping. I love having things delivered but don’t want to have to pay for shipping. 😉

  5. love this! thanks for the link!!
    very easy to use and the prices are surprisingly good!

  6. I used your referral link, and I think the site is awesome! I’m about to place my first order, it’s going to save me from packing up the baby & diaperbag and lugging off to the supermarket. Sweet! 😀

  7. I think it’s nifty, but I’m a big coupon shopper. So I’m not sure I’d use Alice that much….it looks like I’d end up paying more for some items. But it’d be definitely useful for items I’m brand loyal to, that don’t frequently go on sale or have coupons. And I do love the free shipping.

  8. I’m a new reader, but I’m so glad I came over! I hadn’t heard of Alice.com before, but it really is such a great idea! The site is super easy to use, but I also like sites that have great graphics and are intuitive – all of which alice.com has. I’d love to win and be able to try it out! Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. What a great site! I clicked over and signed up, and I really like the fact that you can set reminders to reorder stuff at different times. The whole thing looks very easy to use.

  10. So glad I found your blog! I had planned on stopping by the grocery store tonight to pick up a few things – and that’s no longer needed! And thanks too for the giveaway!

  11. This is the second time in a week I’ve heard of this site. I’m intrigued….and if I can save money (and time) like the site promises, I’m all about it! And once you get signed up, it seems easy enough to use…

  12. Love this site! My hubby actually told me about it and had been encouraging me to use it. Such a great design and concept. I just signed up for my account and can’t wait to put it into action!

  13. What an amazing idea! And such a great array of products! We are moving to a smaller city this week which does NOT have a Costco and this would be a wonderful replacement for SO many of the things I get there!

    The site is well organized and easy to use from what I can see!

    Thanks for the chance!

  14. We are moving away from a conveniently located grocery store and warehouse store, having Alice available while I’m out in the country? And she finds coupons for me? I signed up all right. (And it’s okay if I call it a her right? I mean only a woman is this smart…)

  15. Wow. This is super cool. Such a clean easy-to-use site. Really. I usually NEVER buy stuff like this online b/c it’s too hard to look at every option. But this site is easy to use!


  16. Very cool! I love the efficiency of this. It can also reduce impulse buying (those shiny “end caps” can be so captivating sometimes!) This is a great tool for helping with time management and organization. Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway.

  17. I was surprised at the number of options available. Very easy site to use.

  18. OMG! This is a busy mommies dream come true!
    I LOOOVE shoppping, but not for the common everyday stuff.. This sight so helps with that so I have more time to shop for more fun stuff.. like purses, shoes, ha ha

  19. Saw this on 5M4M a week or so ago. It sounds like HEAVEN!!! I did sign up already (so I can’t do it through your link–sorry!) but I haven’t purchased anything yet!

  20. Okay, I’m in! I’ve been hearing so much about the site and am glad to have finally joined!

    I love the concept behind the site. FINALLY a great and effective site for Moms who spend too much time on twitter. I mean, Moms who are busy cleaning and cooking. Yes, that’s what I meant. 😉

  21. I have a new love….the prices are great – how fantastic to have someone else find coupons for me? And this will eliminate the trips I make to the big stores that end up with me buying a million little things I don’t really need. And no delivery charge – I’m saving money on multiple fronts and it makes my life easier!

    I’ve signed up and will place an order today!
