HALLOWEEN EXPRESS

Halloween Express has been around for over 20 years and currently holds an A- Better Business Bureau rating. You may have seen one of their retail stores that pop up right before the Halloween season. Halloween Express offers a full service online Halloween shopping experience. You will enjoy a well-functioning website and a solid selection of costumes to choose from.

Halloween Express arranges their products by categories and subcategories to help you in your search. For example, in the Kids category they have over 30 different subcategories, including animals, princesses, superheroes, and "new" items for each year. In the adult category they have horror, careers, sexy costumes, and more. When you click on these categories you are presented with dozens of different styles of costumes. Clicking on the thumbnail picture gives you a bigger picture to view details of the costume.

In addition to Adults and Kids, Halloween Express carries costumes for Pets, Couples, and Groups. Halloween Express also offers a good selection of costume accessories, such as hats, wigs, masks, and makeup. Like the costumes, all these items are easily searchable and viewable.

Halloween Express offers a list of additional consumer-friendly features, such as:

  • Same-day shipping. Order your costume by 1pm est and it is shipped out that same day.
  • Free shipping. Spend $75 or more and your costume ships for free. Ground shipping starts at $7.99 for smaller orders.

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.
