Shari's Berries Review

This Valentine's day I saw an offer on Swagbucks for Shari's Berries and decided to try the site out. I did place an order for the Rocky Road Squares for my husband for Valentine's day. I do admit, the product tasted great. However, we both felt that while the product was great it was not worth the total price. The cost of the product was $19.99 and the delivery cost was $14.99 bringing the total up to $34.98.

I was also highly disappointed that they are not more upfront about the delivery fees. It wasn't until I hit the last page of the order confirmation that delivery fees were stated. I have to admit, I'm an avid shopper on Amazon, Disney store.com and Lego.com but I'm not a big online shopper beyond those sites. One thing I love about those sites is that shipping is clearly stated well before you actually start ordering and LONG before you enter your payment information. To me, waiting until after payment information has been entered before stating the full price (which does include shipping) is a deceitful business practice.

So needless to say, while the product quality was very good I still would not recommend purchasing from this site.

I so agree. Honestly, I try to only order online if the shipping is free. I'm an Amazon Prime member, so I do order quite a bit from them.

I only order if I know the shipping up front. I just would not have ordered them, but glad you enjoyed them

I don't like it when they hide the shipping way into the order process.

Heheheh good thing I don't have money for that and I am not really an online shopper but I think it is fun to experience just once. Hehehehe. Thank you for the information and for the warning, I need to keep this is mind just in case I might try to go online shopping. God bless.

If you can't back out of the order when you see the delivery price I wouldn't like that site either. Many places will request your payment info before they give you complete price, but you see the total before you click submit. I wouldn't like it if I couldn't just say Nah! the delivery costs more than the item.

I love Shari's Berries, and I've both sent and received them as gifts, but you're right about the price - they are crazy-expensive.

I generally shop local stores, and I support local foods. Fortunately, we have a fabulous chocolatier in this region. So, I have never been tempted by that site.

Thank you for the review! I always want to order every time I see the commercials but figured it was too pricey.

Already I have heard negative remarks about Swagbucks.Like Amazon shipping cost should be shown early before ordering.Or we must have the option to back out.
