BLINDS

Blinds is the premier window blind store on the Internet. They have plenty to offer and they organize it well. From the home page you can browse by type, shop top sellers, and get helpful information such as design advice. You also have access to design ideas, measuring guides and useful information for first time visitors. Sales and rebates are clearly indicated on a rolling billboard and Blinds has a Price Watch section that compares their prices to the same name-brand blinds priced at Lowe's and Home Depot. This is very helpful to the shopper because chances are, they are either going to purchase blinds online or at a mass retailer. Speaking of price, Blinds had the lowest prices of all the websites we reviewed.

As you shop by category, Blinds has concisely organized all the needed information for you to make a purchase. Each category has a description of the item, special offerings associated with that type of window covering, and sale prices for particular brands within that category. The descriptions actually contain useful information instead of sales jargon. Blinds takes it one step further and provides a feature chart listing price, insulation ability, room darkening factor, whether it's kid-proof, and whether it's easy to clean. This chart is on every description page so comparison shopping becomes extremely simple. The different brands are mapped out in an easy to read chart that enables you to sort by price, brand, product, type and best sellers. Each category has a gallery to view the product in different settings, which gives you an idea of how the window covering will look in your situation.

The customer service available at Blinds is exceptional. Free samples are available to help you order with confidence. Blinds offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all items. Blinds even offers to find a "pre-screened" handy man to install your blinds for you. Customer service is available via Live Help, a toll-free number or email. Blinds also offers FREE shipping on orders less than 90" wide and delivers via UPS or FedEx.

Blinds earns our highest rating due to their easy-to-use website, unmatched features, and the lowest prices for both in-house and name brand blinds. If you are shopping for window blinds, Blinds is a must-stop shop.

AMERICAN BLINDS

American Blinds is a one stop decorating site. This site offers Blinds & shutters; Wallpaper & Fabric; Curtains & Draperies, Bedding; Area Rugs; Customer Framed Art and anything else you might need to decorate a room or home.

Focusing on the Blinds & Shutters area of the website; we were a little overwhelmed at first. Clicking on the tab from the home page, the different types of window coverings are displayed down the left side of the screen. What we don't like about this site is that you have to shop by brand; therefore, comparison shopping is hard and tedious. Once you select a brand, lists of all options within that brand line are given. No pictures, just the name. Select a product and then you have to make a color selection. Finally, after you enter your window measurements, a price is revealed. After all this, you have the price of one blind, which can then be added to a cart or a scrapbook.

As far as pricing, American Blinds was firmly in the middle of the pack.

Moving on to customer service; for $5, American Blinds will provide you with 10 American Brand blind swatches or 10 Bali, Graber or Hunter Douglas blind swatches. American Blinds offers a free catalog for blinds, rugs or wallpaper. They also offer a personal shopper service free of charge. Email them with your ideas and they will have options for you within 24 hours.

American Blinds offers a satisfaction guarantee; if you contact them within 14 days of receipt, your refund will be issued via in store credit or merchandise voucher only.

To ensure your satisfaction, American Blinds provides detailed information on how to correctly measure, install, care and clean your blinds and they offer a 5 year limited warranty. Free shipping is offered on all orders; however, items over 90 inches may incur an additional oversize freight charge. Customer Service is available via phone, email, or instant chat.

The bottom line for American Blinds is that the overall shopping experience is just not enjoyable. They have too much information that is not very well organized. A frustrating shopping experience combined with middling prices conspire to give American Blinds our lowest rating.
