We recently tried Amazon Prime Wardrobe. We read the website, but still had a lot of questions about it – so you probably do, too. We thought we’d give you a quick Amazon Prime Wardrobe Review and the pros and cons.
What is Amazon Prime Wardrobe?
It’s a chance to try clothes from Amazon before you pay for the clothes. Amazon ships you clothes and doesn’t charge your card. Amazon ships the clothes to and you have 7 days to decide if you want to keep them. If you return all of the clothes within 7 days, your card is not charged.
If you do not return the clothes within 7 days, your card will be charged.
What’s the difference between Amazon Prime Wardrobe and Amazon Prime?
Besides not having to pay for the items before they are shipped, there are a couple of main differences:
- Amazon Prime Wardrobe items are shipped at a SLOWER speed than Amazon Prime. We think it’s to help offset the cost of this feature. Regular ol’ Amazon Prime ships in two days, Amazon Prime Wardrobe took a couple extra days (5 total days for this shipment).
- Amazon Prime Wardrobe provides a return label, so you don’t have to print and tape a return label, like you normally do with Amazon Prime.
- You have 7 Days to ship the clothes back (that is, 7 days to put the box in the mail – NOT 7 days for Amazon to get the package).
Can you still return items after the 7 days with Amazon Prime Wardrobe?
This was the biggest question that we had trying out Amazon Prime Wardrobe. It turns out you can still return the Amazon Prime Wardrobe products AFTER the 7 days.
When we tried out the Native Water Shoes, we decided after about 12 days that they were not the right product. We were able to return the product (it appears that you have 30 days to return the product from when it was received). We simply had to find a different box, since we already shipped out the box that all the other Amazon Prime Wardrobe items came in.
Anything else you should know about Amazon Prime Wardrobe?
- Amazon Prime Wardrobe is a good option if you want to try out something new and don’t need it super quick.
- A quick example: my wife needed maternity clothes for our upcoming vacation. She would typically use Amazon Prime Wardrobe, but it would take too long. So, she ordered it via regular Amazon Prime to make sure it got home in time for the trip.
- She can still return the items like she normally does, but it will be charged to our credit card until the items are returned.
- You need to be an Amazon Prime member to use Amazon Prime Wardrobe.
- It appeared that the Amazon Prime Wardrobe Items did not have the best prices. Items that were not on Amazon Prime Wardrobe appeared to be priced better.
Amazon Prime Wardrobe Review
Overall, if you’re looking for some new clothes and want to try out the clothes without any risk – we recommend you check out Amazon Prime Wardrobe, especially if you don’t need the clothes in 2 days.
