In this article, I’m going to share my experience with you, offering you pros and cons of becoming a member. My hope is by the end, I will have helped you make the right choice for you and your family.
What Is Grove Collaborative?
Grove Collaborative is an on-line store designed to make purchasing and using healthy, natural, and organic products trouble-free. At Grove Collaborative, you will find a huge selection of non-toxic household items, including cleaning products, personal care items, beauty products, vitamins & supplements, baby products and so much more.
Grove Collaborative is an auto-replenishment service, so once you become a member, Grove will ship your favorite natural products right to your door on a schedule you have pre-selected.
My subscription to Grove Collaborative has made my life much easier. Instead of running to the store for household supplies, a box of my favorite natural products is delivered right to my doorstep on my schedule.
Grove saves my preferences and recommends products I might be running low on. I never run out of my cleaning supplies. My shipments are totally customizable, so I only get what I need, when I need it.
What I Love About Grove Collaborative
It’s easy to manage shipments
Grove let’s me know when my next order will ship, and it is quite easy to change my shipment date, skip a shipment, or change the products in my pantry.
Who doesn’t like free products? VIP members receive free full size products 5 times per year. Some of their free products have included lip balms, soy candles, cleaning supplies, and more.
These are a sampling of free products I have already received.
VIP members receive free shipping all the time, for every order. It doesn’t matter the size; if you are a VIP member, your order ships free. Regular customers pay a flat rate of $2.99. Even that is a great price!
My husband does most of the shopping on his way home from work. By using Grove Collaborative, I don’t have to worry about him buying the wrong brand. And I don’t have to spend time on the phone when he calls to ask which scent I want. I am able to pick and choose from the comfort of my home, in my PJ’s, hair a mess, and no make-up!
Here is a sampling of products I have purchased.
I don’t know about you, but I get very impressed when a box is packed well. The Grove people really care how my items come to me. They make sure my order comes with out leaks or breakage.
Refer a friend program
After you have made your first purchase with Grove Collaborative, share the love! You will be given your very own link to share. For every friend you refer, each of you will receive a $10 credit for future shipments.
Grove Collaborative Price Matches
Generally, I have found Grove prices to be less expensive; however, once in a while I have come across an item or two with a higher price. Grove Collaborative gives VIP members the opportunity to price match.
Price matching is easy; I added the product to my cart, and sent them the link to where I saw my product for less, and they adjusted the price before my next shipment. I have always gotten the best price!
Top notch customer service
Grove Collaborative people are excellent to work with; they are friendly and knowledgeable. Questions and concerns are usually addressed within 24 hours.
Wide selection of product brands
Grove Collaborative offers a wide selection of natural and organic products in the brands you know and love.
One of my favorite brands is Mrs. Meyer’s. I use their hand soaps, room fresheners, dish detergent, laundry products, and cleaners. They are gentle, toxin free, and great smelling. I have sensitive skin; Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap leaves my hands clean, soft, and smelling great.
I’ve even used Mrs. Meyer’s Hand Soap to give this handsome guy a bath, and it left his fur shiny and soft. His favorite scent is Basil; he’s a guy after all. None of those flowery scents for him!
Some Negatives About Grove Collaborative
Getting to know the system can be confusing
After I signed up for my trial membership, it took me a little while to figure out how things worked. It took me a little time to learn how to customize my order, but once I learned how to manage my products and shipment schedule, I found it saved me time and effort.
The amount of products being offered can be overwhelming
Grove Collaborative offers many quality products; normally this is a good thing. However, if you are just beginning to use natural products, the amount of choices being offered can seem daunting at first. Each month, Grove adds items to your cart based on your preferences. This is an excellent way to try new items you may not have noticed. You can easily delete a suggested item from your order if it’s not something you want to purchase.
