CLOSED!! CSN Stores $40 Gift Card Giveaway! Ends 9/10



CLOSED!!

So a week ago or so I posted that I would be hosting a CSN Stoes Giveaway! Did you see all the awesome green, natural, toxin free stuff I found in their stores?! If not, you should check out my Pre-Giveaway Post!

If you did see that post, then you probably got some awesome extra entries into this giveaway! Now who doesn’t love that?

So let’s get down to it! What do I think of CSN Stores?

What SAPsMaMa Loves about CSN Stores!

I love the selection! It’s easy to navigate down to what you are searching for in many ways, so it doesn’t take you forever to find what you are looking for! Of course I always end up “window shopping” through CSN Stores quite often just because there is so much stuff there and I can ALWAYS find SOMETHING I need want lol.

What else do I love about CSN Stores? Probably one of the top things I noticed, free shipping on so many things I want/need, pretty much everything! Not only that but hassle free returns!

But these ARE shops, and what do we do when we shop? We look for savings! CSN Stores has some of the best prices I’ve seen, not to mention half the time what I want is on sale! I love that!

Selection doesn’t always mean too much to me unless it involves green/non-toxic/natural products. Guess what? You can find these products in pretty much every department at CSN Stores! So you can shop there with confidence that they carry the brands you trust!

Suggested Improvements

CSN Stores is great, but just like with any product, every company, there is always room to grow! What are my thoughts? I would love to see a Green/Natural Products button or something similar in the navigation bar or side bar where they have their “shop easy” buttons. That would definitely make my shopping easier! Also, a similar idea, I would love to have a “green/natural” box available in the “Narrow Your Results” sidebar when searching for a product! I did see this in a few areas such as some baby products, but would like to see this more!

Otherwise I love the design of the website, easy to navigate!

WIN!!!

    I am a follower. If I could just spend the money, I would probably get a new table and chair set for the kitchen, though I am not sure what brand I would pick or anything.
