Spirit Halloween

SPIRIT HALLOWEEN Visit Site

Spirit Halloween is an extension of the Spirit Halloween retail stores. Those stores have been in existence for over 25 years. Their retail stores are only open in September and October, however their online store is open all year.

Their success in retail stores is not lost on the website. Visually, the site is friendly and fun. On the home page you find a variety of colorful links to other Halloween-related areas. They also provide you with a zip code search box, where you can find the retail store nearest you.

Along the left side of the screen they display 12 different categories of items to shop for, including men's costumes, couples costumes, and baby costumes. Within each of these categories you have further subcategories to search, which make finding the costume you want a snap. Along the top of the screen they give you the same categories, so no matter where you are on the site, you can always search by category.

If you've ever visited a Spirit Halloween store you're instantly impressed with the selection and organization of the selections. Perhaps not surprisingly, the online site is very similar to the stores. We liked that you can find a selection of costumes here not offered by other stores.

Orders placed by 12:00 noon EST are usually shipped same day. Once an order is placed, a confirmation email is sent to the buyer; within this email is a link so that you can track the status of your order online. While not as convenient as some of the other sites, nevertheless they do give you online tracking information.

Spirit Halloween allows you to return most costumes as long as they are unopened and in their factory-sealed packages within 21 days of purchase for a full refund. This is acceptable if you change your mind after placing the order; however if you open the package and try the costume on, only to find it doesn't fit, you cannot return the costume.

Spirit Halloween offers an FAQ link directly from their main page. This section only contains answers to 6 of their most commonly asked questions. However, their customer service section is quite extensive, with 8 different areas of information.

In addition to costumes, Spirit Halloween also offers some other fun Halloween areas. They provide links to Halloween-related Recipes, Crafts, Games, and Party Tips. While not extensive, they do provide a more fun holiday experience than just offering costumes.

In all, Spirit Halloween is a fine extension of the Spirit Halloween retail stores. With a user-friendly website, great prices, and an extensive selection, Spirit Halloween provides a good choice for your Halloween costume needs.

Costume City

COSTUME CITY Visit Site

Your first impression at Costume City will not be your last. The site appears professional, well organized and easy to navigate. However, after spending a short time on the site you'll learn that the selection is smaller than our higher ranked stores, the price comparison between competitors is unfavorable and the return policy would leave anyone unsure.

While some companies provide thousands of costumes, that is not the case at Costume City. The selection was much smaller than most of the online stores and harder to find what you're looking for. However, the selection was not our biggest complaint.

Although it's true that Costume City provides a return policy, it's comical at best. In the event that your costume is the wrong size, color or just not the one you want, you have 2 days to call Costume City and let them know. Then you only have 5 days to actually get the product back to them for your money back. Apparently once you order a costume from Costume City the clock starts ticking and the world stops for you to make a decision. Don't plan on traveling if you've ordered a costume from this place. In the event you could actually meet their incredible timeframe restriction, you have several additional hoops to jump through in the process.

In addition, the pricing at Costume City was high compared to most of the competition. We found one costume that appeared to be the exact same and it was $10.00 more. Inflated pricing, ridiculous return policy and poor selection - our best suggestion is to shop somewhere else.

No more driving from store to store, fighting the crowds, or settling for what's "left over" after all the good costumes have been taken. With the advent of the internet, you can save 50% or more off traditional retail prices. From the comfort of your own home, you can easily browse hundreds of costumes to find just the one you're looking for.

When shopping at different online Halloween costume stores, you want to consider a few factors. Some of these include:

  • Selection.  Some stores have thousands of costumes available; others may have just a couple hundred. The more costumes they have, the greater chance you'll find what you're looking for.
  • Cost.  Even among online stores, costs vary widely. You want to find a store that reliably has low prices, passing the savings on to you.
  • Customer Service.  Do they let you check the status of your order online? Answer your questions in a FAQ section? Provide support after the sale?
