iHerb Review and My experience with iherb Singapore

iHerb is an online store based in US which sells nutritional supplements and healthy products in US ,Singapore and other countries. iherb Singapore is more popular among the residents of Singapore as the best place to buy health supplements online.They promote organic products and most of the products are really affordable.

How I became an iHerb Customer?                                

Recently I shopped with iHerb and it was my first experience although I’ve heard about this online store before. All that happened accidentally. Actually still my toddler wants me to breastfeed him and I am trying to stop it. I don’t breastfeed him during day time, but still he needs me to feed at night. Refusing this will begin unhappy and stressful moments as he starts crying. I will share my weaning experience later.

Anyway I finally decided to seek a product that can stop my milk production and came across the ‘Organic No More Milk Tea’ by Earth Mama Angel Baby. This sounds good for me and after reading some reviews I decided to buy ‘No More Milk Tea’.

Iherb review – My experience with iherb Singapore

Next is to find an online shop to buy Earth Mama No More Milk Tea. I found few online shops, but they sell the same product for different prices. When I added the shipping cost, the final amounts are really different each other. But, I found the price at iHerb is the lowest for the same Earth Mama Angel Baby, Organic No More Milk Tea. They offer shipping for really affordable rate at S$ 5.46 .I read few iHerb reviews and all were positive.This is how I became an i Herb Customer.

My shopping experience with iHerb

Shopping with iHerb is really easy and the site is easy to navigate. There are many supplements and other healthy products including healthy snacks for really cheap rates and interestingly these products are natural and organic.

Although there are many products which I like to buy, I wanted to try iHerb first. So, it is only Earth Mama Angel Baby, Organic No More Milk Tea.

Getting the discount of $5

Screen capture from my first order with iherb Singapore

As a first time customer I was eligible for getting $5 discount. When the discount converted to S$ it is a S$ 6.82 which I only had to pay for shipping fee for my No More Milk Tea order. That really sound good, isn’t it?

Anyway I added another product to the cart which is a hand and body lotion and it was just S$ 1.54,but the lotion is also natural and organic which includes Cocoa Butter.

My experience with iHerb is really good and I received my parcel within 4-5 days. Really nice experience!

Use the iHerb coupon QWN933 which you can get US $5 discount when you become a first time customer.

How to save from iHerb.com shopping (or from iherb Singapore)

Here are few ways you can save when you shop with iHerb.com or with iHerb Singapore.

  • If you are a first time customer you can get USD5 discount for your first order. To get that you need to purchase through affiliate link or need to use a discount code. If you use this link to iHerb.com, you’ll get the $5 discount when you check out.
  • Shipping rate is really cheap to Singapore which is around S$ 5.46 for my order. When you order more than $40, you will get really good discounts on shipping. For US orders, shipping is free when you order more than $20.
  • Check the iherb trial section. There are many full size products which you can buy for really cheap rates. When you have some more weight remaining in your order, you can utilize that for buying such products and save on both product cost and shipping cost.
  • When you continue shopping with iHerb, you will get loyalty credits 10% for your each shopping experience which is another way to save when you buy healthy organic products.
  • You can also refer others to iHerb and earn $5 for your each referral. This is a pretty good way to continue with organic product shopping.

All these sounds good isn’t it? I actually placed my second order with iHerb Singapore and waiting to receive it. I specially ordered some organic snacks instead of buying potato chips from the local store.

Check iHerb.com .You’ll sure love to shop with them.

4 Easy Ways to Save Money on Home Appliances

Recently I shared a post on how we save money on baby expenses. In this post I want to share some of our tips on saving money when we buy home appliances. Although you have enough money to spend, living on a budget and save some money from most of the essential expenses always makes the life simple. So, here are 4 easy ways to save money on Home Appliances. Hope these tips are helpful for you.

Use Discount Codes and coupons

This is one of the popular ways to save money when you buy home appliances. If you buy from a local shop, then check newspapers for discounts and coupon codes. Sometimes, popular websites also share coupon codes for their products. When you use the product codes or if you cut coupons from newspapers and magazines and produce those at checkout, you are eligible for a discount. Another way is to register with some companies newsletters. They will send you offers and deals time to time. If you are not in a rush to buy some appliances, then you can wait few days and buy the needed appliances when the company shares any offer.

Wait for Holiday Sales

save money on Home Appliances

Holiday season is full of home appliances promotions. Throughout the year there are many special holidays and these holidays comes with lot of shopping and lot of bargains. Here in Singapore we find holiday sales for festivals such as Chinese New Year, Hariraya, Deepawali and Christmas. Even we visit Malaysia during these holiday seasons and find some items for discounted prices.

Buy online

Buying online is another great way to save from home appliances. If you check the price of any appliance in a local store and compare it with online shops for the same brand and same product, you’ll see that there is a difference in price. Most reputed brands offer their products in their authorized online shops too. That make easy to buy same brand names you are looking for from an online shop and save money. For example, Rinnai is a popular brand for Home Appliances in both Singapore and Malaysia. I also found Rinnai authorized dealer online which we can easily buy same Rinnai products online.

Skip the Extended Warranties

I don’t mean that you want to skip the manufacturer’s warranty for the appliance you are going to buy. You need it. Usually manufacturer’s warranty covers from one year to few years according to the product you buy. Usually this manufacturer warranty is enough and you get it free of charge when you buy the product. However, you need to pay extra if you go for extended warranty. If you are going to maintain your home appliances well, then there is no need to go for extended warranties. That will save you some amount of money from your home appliances price.

Above are my tips on save money on Home Appliances. Do you have more tips to add? Please share your thoughts below.

Having a baby is really exciting. However, as parents we should prepare for the increased expenses that come to our lives with the new arrival. Most of the moms including myself stay at home to take care of their babies. That means, you need to depend on one salary and savings if available. So, it is better to think of saving in every single way in order to have a smooth life without worrying too much about the expenditures on baby stuff. Here are some of the tips from me to save money on baby products and expenses. Hope these are helpful for you if you are keen on saving some money from your baby stuff.

Sign Up for Free Samples and baby clubs

Most companies send free samples of their products. Take the advantage of this and receive free samples or free trial offers. Some samples are really small in portion, but there are companies who are generous to offer a full size product as a free sample.

Baby clubs are another way to receive free samples, offers and discounts. I signed up with most of the baby clubs for moms in Singapore. Sometimes it is really exciting to receive free gifts for my son for special occasions such as his birthday.

Simply search the words “free baby samples” in Google and you will see lot of offers available in your area. Your only cost is may be to join with their newsletter.

Breastfeed as long as you can

Well, breastfeeding is not only cheaper when you consider money, it also the best source of nutrients that you can give to your baby. Cost of formula is considerable when you exclusively depend on it. I actually, breastfed my son till he is 2 years old. But, when he was 6 months old, we introduced formula milk together with breastfeeding. Other than breastfeeding, there are many ways to save on baby formula, such as buying bulk or use of coupons.

Make nursery decorations yourself

Artisan State Photo Book Review (Zno Photo book Review)

Update:Now this photo book company is called as Zno.If you are looking for Zno Photo book review,still this review is valid as both are the same companies.(Only a name change) This Zno Photo Book review also features Zno Layflat, 20 pages, 6×8, hard photo cover book.which I bought for $5 trial offer.

I really like making photo books for my son’s events. With my experiences so far, I found that photo books are durable and a quality way to keep photo memories in one place than creating an album with printed photos.

Zno Photo book Review

Earlier I created photo books with montage and Blurb. If you read my reviews on Montage Photo Book which I made for his 1st year memories and the Blurb Photo Book review for his first month, you’ll see how much I am into creating photo memories. I know most moms love to be creative with their kids.

Now my son is going to be 2 years old and for me it is so fast. I still remember his 1st birthday party. Suddenly when it is time for planning his 2nd birthday, I found I still haven’t created a photo album for his 1st Birthday.

Finally, I ended up creating a photo book for his first birthday with Artisan State. Actually I searched on Google for photo books and found Artisan State. I also found that they have a good offer these days. That is for new customers, they can order their first photo book for just $5.Quite a bargain price, right? If not, their usual price starts from $30.Another interesting thing is their shipping charges. It is only $5!

So, here is my Artisan State Photo Book Review which I only paid $10 including shipping charges.(Also read our Mixbook Photo Book Review)

(Disclaimer: This is not a free product for me. I paid $10 for both book and the shipping cost. This post is entirely to share my experience and about the offer with others who read this post)

The offer price applied to a Layflat, 20 pages, 6×8, hard photo cover book. There are other items also available for $5 trial offer such as Little Black Book and Wood Custom Frame.

For birthday photo album, 20 pages are just fine. Their software is easier to use and there are several page layout options. So, I could arrange photos in different styles.

Zno Photo book Review

Zno Photo book Review

In first two pages, I used 10 photos which show the details and decorations of the party. Actually I expected to see very small and unclear images in the photo book. But once I received this book, I found very clear images even those are very small.

Artisan State Photo Book Review

Zno Photo book Review

Other than that, photos are very clear and neat. Layflat option makes it easy to go through the book. Each page is thick enough and seems these are durable.
Overall, I really like with this Photo book purchase. If you are looking for making a photo book, why don’t you try their $5 trial offer? (for a limited time period)

How to Save Money from your photo books?

Here are some of my tips on how to save money or how to buy photo books for really cheap rate.

Once you visit your photo book company,sign up with them and start creating your photo book.If you are in rush ordering your photo book,then search in Google for coupons and promo codes for the said company which you created a photo book.

If you can wait for about 1-2 weeks,then you may able to earn more than 50% discounts in most of the time.

When you sign up with Newsletter ,you will receive their deals and coupons daily.Grab the best deal and order your photo book for really a bargain price.

Just imagine creating a quality and large size photo book for around $30,but ordering the same book for $15!That sounds great when the book is larger and when you have enough space for all your photos with attractive layouts!

I do this all time.

How about you?Do you create photo books for family events?
