SELECT BLINDS

The Select Blinds website is divided into an extensive array of categories. The choices include wood, faux wood, honeycomb, mini, vertical, bamboo/woven, roller, sheer shades, roman, or shop by all products. Each category has a description of the product and pricing by brand. From there you are able to choose a specific product, which gives you a detailed description, color choices, features and shipping information.

Select Blinds prices fall in the middle of all the sites we reviewed, which was a little disappointing especially since they only offer their house brand.

The home page displays sale information, a list of top sellers, and celebrity testimonials (Ty Pennington to name one) to encourage the shopper. Free samples are available and recommended to ensure the coloring is correct. Select Blinds will happily overnight the samples to you for $5.00. A few other incentives include free shipping and a "Google checkout". Select Blinds also offers to find a professional to measure and/or install your blinds for you. If you do decide to install your own, Select Blinds provides installation guides in PDF format to help the do-it-yourself weekend warrior in you. Customer service is available via phone, email or fax.

The only problem we found with this site is that you constantly have to change the measurement of the blinds you are ordering. Every time the page changes, the default measurement resets. However, the best feature of this site is the "all products" option. This is a comparison shoppers dream as all products are displayed, categorized by type with prices listed.

Select Blinds is a dependable company with high-quality products and a very friendly website. If you feel that in-house blinds can be just as good as name-brand blinds, you should check out the selection at Select Blinds.

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.
