ZAPPOS

Handbags are a personal and specific item for many women. Some women are solely devoted to one, while others pair them accordingly with outfits and occasions. They come in an endless variety of shapes, sizes and styles so the task of choosing one can be overwhelming.

Zappos has eliminated some of the challenges of handbag shopping by offering a user-friendly website, and allows shoppers to target their handbag search according to their specific preferences. You can begin by simply searching the latest trends or you can dive deeper into search options and begin with popular bag types such as: Crossbody, Tote, Clutches, Satchels, Hobo, Shoulder or Bucket. You can also refine your search according to your desired brand, material, color, features, strap/handle type, closures, themes and accents.

The options are not limited to handbags in this department. You can also find wallets, diaper bags, backpacks, electronic bags and even fanny packs. There really is something for everyone at this handbag store.

Zappos is easy to navigate and offers clear, beautiful photos of their handbags with great detail. They even take this a step further by including a detailed video presentation for many of their handbags. In the video a live model highlights the features of the item and demonstrates its functionality, giving a more true/live visual of the bag. We love this unique feature of the Zappos website.

The inventory of handbags at Zappos is broad and so are the price points. They offers bags ranging from $14.99 to a more luxury level at $2,995.00.

Shipping is prompt and free, and the return policy is among the best we've seen. Zappos customer service sets the bar high and is even regarded as a standard across all industries. Their customer service professionals are available 24/7 by live online chat, phone or email. Customer satisfaction is top priority with Zappos. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may simply login, print the free UPS label and return it, unused, in its original packaging. The most impressive thing is that you have 365 days to make that decision!

Zappos is a low-risk, one-stop shop for fashion lovers and savvy shoppers. Their buyers do an excellent job of providing currents trends and handbags with a more unique flair. We're confident that you'll find something that suits your style, and certain you will have a positive customer experience with Zappos. For handbag shopping, they earn our highest rating.

eBags is easy to navigate and well organized with an extensive list of search possibilities available to best fit your needs. eBags offers a great range of types of handbags, as well as a great price range. Also, if designer handbags are your thing, there is a wonderful selection of those high-end handbags as well.

Once you've spotted a handbag of your liking, you simply click on the item to see clear pictures of the handbag. The details, color and style will be no surprise when it arrives at your doorstep. However, if for some reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return the handbag for free as long as it is unused, or if it's defective, for up to 60 days.

All around, the eBags site is great to find a handbag for any occasion at a very reasonable price. Few handbag stores can match the selection and return policy found here. If you can't find what you are looking for at eBags, they probably don't make it.

SHOES

With more than 2,000 handbags to choose from in prices ranging from less than $20 to just under $600, Shoes has something for every shopper. Whether you're looking for a basic everyday crossbody bag or a high-end leather tote, the Shoes website makes it easy to find what you need.

If you want to see everything Shoes has to offer, just click on the "View All" option on the left-hand side of the page. Or, if you have a particular type of handbag in mind, you can either click on the image in the center of the page or on the links on the left side. Categories include the following:

  • Bucket Bags
  • Casual Handbags
  • Clutches & Evening Bags
  • Dress Handbags
  • Eco-Friendly Handbags
  • Hobo Bags
  • Organizer Handbags
  • Oversized Handbags
  • Purses
  • Satchels
  • Shoulder Bags
  • Tote Bags
  • Wristlets

Once you've chosen the category, it's easy to shop for the specific handbag you want. You can sort the options further by color, brand, price, or desired features - we thought it was interesting that there were Anti-theft and RFID options - as well as by using the drop-down box on the right side that lets you list by price, popularity, discount, and average customer review.

Prices at Shoes are very competitive, and at the time of our review there was a promotion at the top of the page offering a 20% discount on all orders. Better yet, shipping is always free at Shoes, no matter the dollar amount of your purchase.

And, if you don't love your handbag - maybe the color isn't exactly how it looked on the screen or the strap doesn't feel as comfortable as you were hoping - you can exchange or return it within 60 days from your purchase date. (Shoes also extends that period to 90 days during the holiday season of November 1 through January 1.) If you opt for an exchange, Shoes will cover the return shipping costs; otherwise, expect to pay a $6.95 restocking fee that covers the prepaid return shipping label.

Shoes also offers you additional savings with its ShoeFan rewards program. Membership is complimentary, and you earn a point for every dollar you spend. For every 200 points you earn, you get a $10 reward. Points can also be earned by referring other shoppers, posting product reviews, and linking your social media accounts to your Shoes customer account.

Our only concern with Shoes is the number of customer reviews we found that describe problems with their customer service. Many shoppers have complained that the returns process is difficult and shipping times can be slow. However, many of the complaints are about shoes - that don't fit properly or wrong sizes received - and wouldn't be likely to apply to a handbag purchase. Also, Shoes has an A+ rating as an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau, which should indicate that the company has done an appropriate job of resolving customer issues.

LUGGAGE PROS

Luggage Pros is a leader in luggage websites with excellent customer service and pricing. Luggage Pros also dabbles in handbags with a nice selection, at fair prices and a well functioning website - we generally liked what we saw.

The handbag section is easy to find on Luggage Pros' website. You may quickly sort by a long list of designers, price range or type. The handbags provided are an overall attractive selection with great prices and pictures that actually allow you to see the details of the product. Many of the handbags come in multiple colors which will meet the needs of those looking coordinate with a particular or for a specific occasion.

Luggage Pros features many designers such as Dooney and Bourke, and Sally Spicer, offering their more reasonable designs. Unlike many designer sites, this one gives a range of the designer's price range. The pricing at Luggage Pros is fair with a nice selection in the under $50 category which many shoppers would appreciate. This category includes many items that have been marked down due to great sales.

The return policy allows for a full refund if you are dissatisfied with the product you may return it free of charge if it is within 30 days of the receipt of shipment.

Considering this is a site initially designed for traveling materials, the handbag selection is quite good and certainly more reasonable than many. This is a good site for people of almost all ages to find handbags varying from the most basic to bright, trendy ones.

88 HANDBAGS

If you're looking for a handbag that is also environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free, 88 should be the first site on your list. Created by a lifelong vegetarian, 88 carries products that are strictly made from polyurethane-based "vegan leathers" and custom earth-friendly hardware.

Styles offered by 88 include satchels, hobo bags, crossbody bags and buckets, backpacks, and totes. All of the bags are priced under $60, making it affordable to change your look from day-to-day with a variety of handbags. One cute feature of 88 is their selection of accessories to customize your style, from faux fur pom-poms with mustaches to dangly multi-ring charms. At the time of our review, the main page had a coupon code for a free accessory with purchase.

The easiest way to see all that 88 has to offer is by clicking on the "Shop" button. You can then use the drop-down box to sort the totes, handbags, and other items according to price, name, or even best-selling products. There was also a separate option for shopping by color, but it didn't seem to be functional when we visited the site.

Once you've selected a handbag, you can see it from almost every possible angle including views of the zipper or other closure, straps, and so on. 88 is fairly new to the handbag market, so you might not find as many customer-provided product reviews as you would see on other retailer's sites.

88 doesn't charge shipping fees on any purchase, offering you another savings over other retailers of handbags. Also, their return policy is excellent: 30 days to return or exchange your purchase, with no questions asked. Be aware that you'll need to complete an online form to print out a pre-paid return label, and you may need to wait awhile for it to load on the returns page (as well as disable any pop-up blockers you have installed).

Customers have lots of positive things to say about their 88 handbags. We found many reviews describing the high quality of construction, saying that their clutch, purse, or tote feels like a much more expensive product. Some also praise 88 for their charitable contributions to Care International, a charity that focuses on educating women throughout the world, with a percentage of every sale.

While shoppers looking for a specific brand or designer won't find it at 88, we can't help but be impressed by this retailer's commitment to a healthy planet, customer-friendly shipping and returns, and affordably-priced handbags in several of today's latest trends.

MODA QUEEN

Moda Queen provides a limited but nice selection of handbags. However, we felt this site may disappoint some. When you initially enter Moda Queen you see a long list of designer brands but if you look a little closer you'll see they don't actually have that much inventory under many of those brands. Some specific designers may only offer 1 pair of sunglasses, or a key chain - not an extensive selection of handbags.

The site is organized by designer, by category, by price, and by best sellers. The site is easy to navigate and very helpful if you simply want to find a very trendy handbag.

Another downside to Moda Queen are the prices. Most of the handbags are expensive, you're paying for designer quality. IN fact, almost all of the handbags are by well-known designers, but there are cheaper options. One Prada handbag featured was on sale for $75! Some of these deals are very hard to come by.

Moda Queen offers an ok return policy of 14-day money back guarantee minus a 10% restocking fee. Any product may also be exchanged if unused with a $15 fee, which is based on the weight of the item.

For a few, Moda Queen will provide a great person but many will need to shop at a higher ranked site to find what they are looking for.

KAEHLER

Kaehler provides a wide range of handbags including luggage, backpacks, laptop carries, handbags and more. However, the site is generally busy and difficult to browse with small font and little product pictures. The return policy and other important information was difficult to find - we had to call for clarification.

Once you begin browsing Kaehler, the first thing you'll notice is limited search functions within the handbag selection of this website. Kaehler allows you to sort by price - high to low or low to high. You may also notice an option to sort by brand but it's so small that most will miss it. If you prefer to shop by color, size or style than you'll need to shop else where. The selection is just under 200 products and the designers are generally unheard of to most of us. However, Kaehler may cater to those with no specific brand in mind, with patience to look through a long list of handbags and with a lower budget in mind.

Shipping is free if you spend over $100 and Kaehler does provide a free return policy up to 30 days from purchase. We felt this was a very fair return policy compared to others. Outside of the nice return policy we couldn't find any other reason to recommend the average handbag shopper to spend time shopping at Kaehler.

Handbags

Whether you're always carrying the latest trends in handbags from the top designer, or only change purses every few years, online handbag shopping provides something that traditional stores do not.

When shopping online you're instantly able to compare and contrast different handbags prices, looks, functionality, colors, and dimensions from the luxury of your home, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Many online stores provide discounts and sales that the traditional mall store will not. Some stores even provide attractive knock-offs or the ability to rent a purse - options that are rarely at your neighborhood strip mall.

However, not all online handbag stores are the same. Before moving forward, it's important to shop from a store that provides:

  • Wide Selection. Some stores offer thousands of handbags while others offer just a few or from a limited number of designers. You'll want to shop at a store with a large selection.
  • Competitive Pricing. Is the handbag cost reasonable? How does the price compare to competitors?
  • Return Policy. If the handbag is too big, the wrong color or simply not your style, once it arrives at your doorstep, will you be able to return it without hassle for your full money back?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best handbag stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find your next handbag today!
