Why choose an autoship?
I wavering between ordering an Anna Griffin item as an autoship or a single-ship. Here is my reason for hesitating on the autoship:
Sometimes you can get coupons that will discount the products and so I could get something for less. In addition, I have ordered autoship before but didn’t really see a reason to do it again.
So here’s my question:
Other than (1) getting the item before everyone else and (2) having the convenience of not having to order the next item when it shows up on HSN (both of which aren’t, in my opinion, benefits–I am patient and don’t mind ordering especially if I can get them discounted with a current coupon), what reason can you give me to choose autoship over single-shipping every item in the series as it arrives at HSN? In other words, what benefits does choosing an autoship give me over single-shipping?
(I don’t buy the "unless you autoship, you won’t get the next item b/c I’ve seen nearly every item in the series of the autoship I did show up and that’s especially true with Anna Griffin–she loves us a lot so she gives everyone a chance to get the item).
Jeff, I actually called that evening because I heard the same thing you did. The lower price was supposed to be locked in, however it was showing the higher price when I looked it up. I actually have the recording saved to where they said it would be the lower price for all future shipments. I was told when they ship it will be the lower price so I guess only time will tell when the next shipment comes out. Im hoping its not an issue ;/
In my opinion, the best reason to order on auto-ship, is that it locks in any special prices, and if the shipping is free when you order auto-ship, future shipments also ship free. It’s very flexible. So if you find that you can buy the product you have on auto ship cheaper at one point, you can sitll buy it with your coupon, and save more money the one time, and then just delay your next autoship, and if your autoship is the best price, let it go, if it isn’t delay or cancel it. Also, if it is offered on a product I have not yet tried, but I know is an excellent price, I will put on auto-ship, and if i don’t like the product, I can just come to the website and cancel.
I hope this helps.
I auto-ship products when they are offered at very special pricing–prices that will most likely not be that low again. I also look for free or reduced shipping costs. I currently have 6 skin care products on auto-ship, and these prices cannot be beat! HSN makes auto-ship very easy to manage.
So, in other words, you want to know what benefits autoship provides aside from the only benefits that the autoship provides? 😀 Not sure what you are asking. It seems you know the answer already.
