@RunningGal:  I’ll let you know…. a gigantic bookcase from Overstock is currently en route to my house. I have never ordered anything this big online!

I think it’s a very good website with fast and cheap shipping! I got a memory foam mattress for $500 shipped to my house for $1 and it was SO heavy. I still sleep on the mattress almost five years later. It is great. I’ve also bought jewelry for my nieces there too. Great website.

I have ordered from o.co many many many times.

 

LOVE the website.  I’ve only ever had one issue with an item that arrived broken.  One phonecall to them and the immediately sent a replacement.

 

 

For me, I shop Amazon and Overstock are pretty much the only places I purchase online.

Yup, for the price, I have no complaints.   I’ve bought 3 rugs, coffee table, tv stand, buffet, my memory foam mattress, and 2 chairs.  The furniture takes about 4 hours to assemble and can be a pain in the ass but I don’t mind.  I had a problem with my chairs, the piece wouldn’t fit, but they sent replacement parts no questions asked.

I’ve bought from them and my husband has purchased jewelry from them.

Cheap shipping and they’re generally pretty quick. I’ve never had a bad product or experience from them.

Super low shipping and great customer service. Bigger items I didn’t want to pay to ship back if I didn’t like them I asked questions about beforehand and they were always answered in a timely manner.

Wayfair is also good, sometimes better prices and even better customer service.

I’ve purchased several smaller items but also a very large, heavy leather ottoman.  Can’t beat the cheap shipping!  I really like the site.

They are super easy to deal with. I had bought a mattress. Realized I had bought the wrong size. Called them to fix it and they emailed me a shipping label to send it back within 15 minutes of my call. They have awesome customer service.

I bought a bedroom set (queen sleigh bed, two dressers, night stand, and mirror) as well as a bistro table & two stools, along with some random odds & ends like sheets & blankets.  Everything came on time, and shipped for $2.95!  They ended up sending me two tables and no stools, so I called them and they had the stools to my place within a week, and told me to keep the extra table!  I sold it on Craigslist for like $100.  I think that entire order came to about $1,600-1,800… been a while, can’t remember exactly.

More recently, I ordered the nursery set from them (crib that converts to a toddler bed and a day bed, changing table, changing pad, and dresser) and it arrived on time and the order was completely correct, and nothing was broken or missing.  Shipping was $2.95 and the furniture was about $330. 

LOVE OVERSTOCK!!!!!!

I bought a gorgeous metal scrollwork bed from Overstock as well as a handful of smaller things. I’ve never had any issues.

im in the minority here but im not a fan of overstock. My fiance bought my original engagement ring from overstock which was shipped to the UK. The delivery arrived on time but the ring was shockingly poor quality.

I checked the description on the website against the ring. Firstly the shape of the stones didnt match the description or websie image. The two side stones were different sizes and very very included despite supposedly eye clean on the description.

The white gold prongs were coated to make them black to match the black diamonds and was supposed to withstand every day wear and tear. within a week or two the coating had gone. (i was taking the ring off to wash my hands and sleep) 

When i approached them to return the ring or excange they were very unhelpful. Numerous phone calls and emails later and 3 months after the ring was delivered they eventually agreed to refund the full amount but we had to pay for shipping back to the US.

But i have heard if you are in the states their service is better.

I absolutely love Overstock! I’ve ordered large (futon, bookcases) and small (pillow, necklace), and shipping is also super cheap and fast. I’ve never had any issues and will continue to order from them.

Give ’em a shot!

It is not a true Overstock business anymore. It used to be, but not now. This is why its being rebranded as O.co.

So you may not actually be getting the best deal. I have discovered cheaper prices on Amazon for the same thing. 

although as others have said the cheap shipping is good and they do a good job of making their site very browseable if you dont know specifically what you want.

They sell all sorts of levels of quality etc so reading the description and reviews are very helpful. Especially the reviews!

Love overstock — especially for things for the house.  I’ve bought a bunch of stuff from there and gotten some good deals.  Some of it isn’t always super quality, but I’ve always felt I’ve gotten what I paid for.  Be sure to read the reviews.
