Mother's 70th Birthday Gift. She's Happy So I'm Happy!
A review by meleahk written on Oct 15, 2002Full review
My Mothers 70th Birthday was recently and she wanted a pocket book for that special occasion. I told her that my husband and children would get her one because the gift from me was going to be very special, (which it was), so I sought out to get her the type of pocket book she wanted and for a price that we could afford.
So off to www.mypoints.com I went and I look at online stores for this gift for my mother. And finally found one at an online store that I didnt expect to. And while I was there I did some other shopping as well. Life is so good!
My New Place To Shop!
www.ebags.com has a lot to offer the consumer and most of the items are on sale! Thats the best part!
When you first come on to the site you will find various links across the top that will take you to locations within the site like: Home, Wallets, Luggage, Purses, Kids & Parents, Urban Gear, Back Packs, Outlet, Your Account, Your Cart, Check Out and many others. Each link takes you to a different page that loads quickly and where you will find various items to buy.
You can also use the search box provided as well, which I found to be very handy. For instance, I typed in pocketbook/purses and was taken to a page offering many selections. I was able to click on each picture to see a larger photo and there were pictures available to see the inside of some of the pocketbooks/purses. Even the clearance ones came up!
Back at the homepage you will find the current item/items of the day on sale and you can click on any of them to be taken to more information. You will name brands like: Samsonite, High Sierra, Jack Spade, Zero Halliburton, Jan Sport and others. You will also find links for various items in the center of the homepage that offer various choices.
At the bottom you will find links that take you to: Your Account, Your Order, Shipping Charges, Return, Gift Certificates, Company Information, Canadian Orders and many others. You can also access these links and the links at the top of the page on any given page. I always find this very useful with any online store.
Shopping is safe and hassle free and so are returns. I have had no problems thus far with my credit card info or my orders. And I have now ordered several times from www.ebags.com and I have really enjoyed looking around the site and being able to click on pictures
Shipping and Handling
I have also found that the shipping and handling charges are a lot of times free plus you can also save an additional 10% on your purchase. However you will not know these specials until you are signed on to the website or receive an email from www.ebags.com.
You can also track your order at anytime once it has been shipped to you via UPS. And you can also check to see when the estimated time of arrival for your purchase will be before you even order it! I liked this feature a lot because my mothers birthday was Oct. 11th and we gave her a birthday bash on the 12th, and the pocket book that we bought her was here on the 9th, which I ordered on the 4th. I was able to click the link estimated arrival that was beside the item of choice, written in red so its easy to see and the date came right up for my viewing pleasure.
Normal rates range depending on what you spend. The lowest rate is $4.99 and the highest is $39.99. Canadian orders are $10.00 more each rate change. See the s/h page for more in depth details.
Contact Info and Company Info
You can contact the company by going to the help center, if your questions are not answered there you can click the link Contact Customer Service and you will be able to email them. They respond quickly and accurately, at least I have found them to do so. you can also find a Contact Us link up on the top right hand side of any page.
You can also email them directly at
or call them at:

How I Feel
I cant say enough of good things about this online store. The pages load quickly, the selections are great, name brands available. The outlet store is my favorite. I like being able to click on the pictures as I already stated and I like getting email with current sales. Sometimes those sales are for 2-days or for 1-day.
I also had no problem with choosing a pocketbook/purse for my mother and I also got some packing boxes from them. I am going to use mine for putting our fish finder in and other fishing accessories.
I also am going to order some of the larger packing boxes to put some things away in for my daughters. The ones I did get in I have found to be very durable and handy. They can also be thrown in the washing machine for cleaning and will slip underneath the bed with no problem or store in the closet.
I paid $21.00 with no shipping and handling for mothers gift and I paid $6.99 for each packing box with no shipping and handling. Plus I got 10% off each order. So I think I did very well. Both purchases were in to me when I was told they would be and I really liked that. Note though that this special is not always available, I have just gotten lucky a couple of times and it was the offer of the day.
I am also looking at buying some luggage, but I am shopping around for the best price. But one thing I do know, should I order from www.ebags.com I know I will have no problems.
I certainly suggest that anyone goes to this online store if you are looking for luggage, wallets, accessories for luggage, etc.
I hope that this has helped in some kind of way!
