Shopping at ChristianBook.com has always been a positive experience.
A review by dedee written on Nov 23, 2004Full review
Approximately one year ago someone recommended to us the Key Word Study Bible. They said the best way to get this bible was through ChristianBook.com. My family had made purchases from this online store before but we were not regular customers.
Soon our home fellowship began to grow and we found ourselves purchasing new bibles every month. We also decided to donate bibles to the local Rescue Mission and we found that ChristianBook.com offered a great discount for buying economy bibles in bulk.
A year later we are regular customers. To date we've made over a dozen purchases and have always been satisfied. Never once has an order been wrong and it is always delivered prior to the promised date.
In addition to purchasing bibles, we've shopped at ChristianBook.com for gifts, music, movies, resource materials, novels and more. If it is a Christian product, more than likely you can find it at this online store. I was looking for a novel written about a house church in Europe. I'd been told you could only get this book from the publisher, but I was able to find it at ChristianBook.com.
What I Like Most About This Online Store
As much as I like online shopping, I am not quick to go searching sites for sales. With all of the junk mail I receive, I am also apt to delete solicitation e-mails without reading them. ChristianBook.com must know this so although it must be expensive, they still send a nice color printed catalog periodically to their customers. There are usually loads of sale items. Sometimes you can get a $20 book for $2 or $3. Right now you can get Nicole Mullen's Christmas CD online for $1.99. I just saw this CD on sale for $11.99 at my local Christian book store. These are the kinds of great deals I enjoy.
I also enjoy the "bargain packs". The price for these vary and sometimes the specials are only offered when you purchase a certain amount. For example, my husband purchased a box of 25 Christian music CD's for under $35. What a bargain! We've also purchased the youth pack and shared the items with kids in our fellowship. We've been purchasing these packs and holding on to the items for gifts as well. The prices for these packs vary depending upon what's in them.
There are also lots of resource materials on this site for those who homeschool and a section for Spanish products. This is also a great site for church leaders as you can purchase church supplies here such as song books, offering envelopes, Sunday School materials, accompaniment tracks and much more.
Design of Site
This site is very easy to use and navigate. You can search by category and/or by keyword. There are also sub-categories making it very easy to narrow down what you're looking for. This makes for a very positive shopping experience.
To make a purchase you have to have an account which is done by setting up a personal profile. It's pretty standard for online stores. When you come to shop again you just login. If you are using one of their catalogs they ask you to enter the catalog number. I assume this is done to ensure you are charged the right price, i.e. if the item were on sale. As confusing as this may sound they always seem to get it right and that is all I care about.
I have just one minor complaint. I always want to type in ChristianBooks.com but the url is ChristianBook.com. I wonder why they did that? Hmmmmmmm.
