Costume Supercenter vs Costume Discounters
Halloween has become one of the most entertaining holidays of the year. Kids and adults both get to dress up in fun and frightening costumes, attend parties, enter contests, and share in festivities. Halloween costumes themselves have become far more elaborate than the old "bedsheet-over-the-head" ghost of yesteryear.
Indeed, in retail stores you can find yourself spending hundreds of dollars on just one costume. Halloween costumes themselves have become far more elaborate than the old "bedsheet-over-the-head" ghost of yesteryear. With the advent of the internet, however, 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.
Costume Supercenter makes it easy for you to find and purchase the perfect Halloween costume. Not only do they have the best selection and best overall prices, they've created a customer friendly shopping experience that exceeded our expectations.
Costume Supercenter offers a wide selection of both child and adult costumes, along with low cost options and a very good plus size assortment. And if you're looking for costume accessories such as hats, wigs, masks, shoes, canes, jewelry, or makeup, Costume Supercenter has a nice variety to choose from.
The well-organized website at Costume Supercenter is easy to navigate, with vivid pictures and detailed descriptions of each costume they offer. You can choose from several costume categories such as Girls Costumes, Boys Costumes, Sale, Infant, Women's Costumes, Men's Costumes, Sexy Costumes, Teen Costumes, and more.
Once you've chosen your costume category, you can drill down further by either typing in your theme, or selecting from over 50 different costume themes - such as 60's costumes, Disney costumes, couples costumes, and more. Most costume themes have an excellent selection of costumes to choose from, no matter what your budget.
After you select your costume, Costume Supercenter conveniently shows you related costume accessories that you may be interested in. We found this a very helpful feature, being a helpful reminder and saving us time in searching through lists of other products.
We were also excited about the customer friendly policies at Costume Supercenter. Some of these include:
Costume Supercenter has been in business since 2005. They hold an A rating at the Better Business Bureau, due in part to their commitment to customer satisfaction.
With excellent pricing, a huge selection of quality costumes, super friendly exchange policies and a helpful customer service team, Costume Supercenter should be your first stop for your next costume search. They earn our highest rating.
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.
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.
