Trendy Halloween Review 4 Star Rating

Trendy Halloween

4 Star Rating

California-based Trendy Halloween wants you to be the talk of the trick-or-treat on your street. From the newest animatronics to the most-wanted costumes, their selection rivals the best in the business.

Finding what you're looking for is easy on the Trendy Halloween site. If you already have an idea of what you need, click in the search box at the top of the page where it says "Fear not!" Otherwise, use the categories at the top of the page, keeping an eye on the drop-downs for more specific options. These categories include:

  • Adults
  • Teens & Tweens
  • Kids & Babies
  • Group & Couples (including Parent/Child sets)
  • Decorations
  • Accessories
  • Brands
  • Trends

Once you've selected a category, the images in the results make it easy to see what they have to offer. You can also look on the left-hand side of the page to sort the results even further, especially if you're looking for a specific character or theme.

Prices are definitely competitive at Trendy Halloween. We checked several of this year's most popular costumes for adults and children and found that TH always had the lowest price. Also, if you click on the link at the very bottom of the page where it says "College Student Discount", TH offers an additional savings of 15% for signing up for their Geekary newsletter; it looks like that discount may be available even if you're not a student.

With respect to shipping, what you'll pay depends on several factors. If your order is over $49.99 and weighs less than 6 lbs., you'll get free shipping within 3-7 business days. But, if your order is less than $50 or weighs more than 6 lbs., expect to pay a minimum of $10.99 for shipping. Trendy Halloween explains that this is to help cover their costs on some of the larger items they carry, like animatronic decorations, but it could be frustrating for a customer to have to try and place an order that meets the requirements for free shipping.

We were also less than impressed with this retailer's exchange/return policy, compared with their competition. Trendy Halloween does not offer any exchanges, period: you'll have to return the item for a refund and then place a new order, assuming the costume is still in stock. In order to return a Halloween costume, you'll need to get a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) within 14 days of delivery; you'll then have 20 days to get the costume back to Trendy Halloween.

On the plus side, Trendy Halloween has a great reputation: an A+ rating as an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau, lots of followers on their various social media channels, and numerous compliments from shoppers who said that the customer service department handled issues in a pleasant, prompt, and efficient way.

We also really like the way that Trendy Halloween focuses on - you guessed it - the hottest trends for the current year. They maintain a Pinterest board called "SpookBook" for each calendar year, showing the most popular costumes, accessories, and decorations - helping even the most clueless Halloween shoppers to be on point. You'll find all of the items from that SpookBook in the link right on the main page.

Overall, Trendy Halloween is a solid place to shop for your Halloween costume, costume party, or decorations. Just be aware that shipping costs may be higher than some of the other retailers in our review, especially on heavier packages.
