COSTUME DISCOUNTERS

If you want cheap costumes, Costume Discounters is the site for you! Costume Discounters provides many of the same costumes other stores offer but at a significant savings. However, that doesn't come without any drawbacks in service.

This no frills website provides a just ok website to assist you in locating what you're looking for. YOU may choose from Kids, Adult, Teen, Pet, Accessories and more. Once you select your department you can further select from popular theme, and characters, male or female, and age of the child if that applies. We thought it was a bit odd that once you selected "kids" they brought up 4 costumes for toddlers and then you had to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the additional categories. Overall the navigating of this discount store is awkward at best and product information is lacking. Costume Discounters provides a size chart but no specific on accessories, materials, or cleaning instructions.

Costume Discounters offers free shipping on orders over $70.00. The return policy allows for return within 10 days of delivery . A restocking fee of 15% does apply if you have ordered 4 or more of the same product. In the event that you choose the wrong size, Costume Discounters requires that you actually return the first item and purchase the next. No exchanges. All returns must be "authorized" and exclude wigs, hose, and other accessories for sanitary reasons.

Costume Discounters provides a toll free number for customer service questions but we had a little trouble getting them to answer our questions and their actual hours available are unknown. However, we thought the "In Home Delivery Date Calculator" was a good tool available to determine the actual delivery date to your home dependant on the delivery method you select.

Costume Discounters is a good site for those looking for a bargain and know what costume and size they need. For those super organized shoppers, perhaps trying on the costume at the store and then shopping at Costume Discounters would provide the best results - more work but a savings opportunity. The return policy and overall professionalism at Costume Discounters was a little less impressive than our higher ranked stores.

ANYTIME COSTUMES

Anytime Costumes provides a well organized site to easily search through their costume inventory. You may choose from adult, kids, plus size, accessories, wigs, masks and more. Within each category you may further define by age (for kids), theme, character, movie, and holiday.

Anytime Costumes appears to only carry the higher end versions of costumes. While some sites carry a range of the same costume allowing customers to choose what fits best in their budget, Anytime Costumes has mainly the deluxe version. While the quality is there, the cost and value of a one-time wear may not be worth it. The overall quantity of costumes is limited across all categories, reducing the likeliness that you'll find exactly what you're looking for.

The return policy does not exist. In place of that, you may exchange the costume for a different size, or something of equal value - within 3 days of receipt. Another not-so-friendly aspect of Anytime Costumes is the shipping costs. UPS Ground costs $8.99 - one of the most expensive across our lists of costume stores.

Overall, limited selection, higher priced costumes, no return policy and expensive shipping leave Anytime Costumes falling far behind. We couldn't find any good reason to shop at Anytime Costumes.
