A Smarter Shopping Bag

Posted by Steve on November 21 at 05:48 pm

My Shopping BagYou may have noticed that it’s been a little quiet around the blog lately. That’s because we’ve been working on something top secret that we think is going to help everyone in a big way when you shop at Lima Beads. Starting today, the Shopping Bag just got a lot smarter!

Easy Shopping from Different Computers

We have so many ways to get special deals (daily Fresh Pick sale, the Big Green Bead Machine, Lima Lunch Specials), but it wasn’t easy to do all your shopping from different computers or locations… until now. As long as you’re signed into your account, your shopping bag will be available from any computer, at any location. All your special deals will stay with you!

More Informative

Price ExpirationWhen you have a special deal in your shopping bag that expires (from the Bead Machine, for example), the shopping bag now tells you when it will expire. Moving your mouse over the clock gives you additional information, and you can even sort your shopping bag by expiration time to get a look at how much time you have left on your deals.

Shipping Estimates

Estimate ShippingAnother new feature we just launched is the ability to get a shipping estimate right from your shopping bag. This will be ultra-helpful for holiday shopping when shipping times are so critical!

    My favorite part of the new shopping bag is that the items will last much longer. Our old shopping bag used to delete your items if you didn’t come back within 4 days, which I know frustrated a lot of people. Now, as long as you log in to save your cart, your items should never disappear!

    Love it! Thank you! I always check the new arrivals at work and start adding them to my cart. Then I remember it won’t show up at home so I delete it and just hope I remember. No worries now, though!

    Thank you, Kevin. Another question: Somewhere I have a coupon code. Is it in an email, a shipping receipt, or on a separate letter? I just need to know where to look!
    Do coupon codes ever expire?

    I am so excited! You know I’ve had a lot of trouble with my deals disappearing. Hope this helps!

    Plucky Chick, it would have been on the “thank you” letter you got with your beads. I’ll send you a message in the Garden with your code. You can save your coupons for as long as you want… but remember they’re only good for one use each.

    Jeanne, I’m excited to hear if this helps you out!

    Thank you! You guys are the best!

    At my show this weekend many people asked where I get my beads. One lady had been away from beading for a year and wanted to get back into it again. I shared with her all the great things at LB and I think she’s really excited to check you out!

    I check back in with you guys this morning and I see you’ve made things even better!!
    LB Rocks!!

    I have now used my “new & improved” shopping bag and it is wonderful!!! Like Jeanne, I haven’t lost anything I’ve put in my bag — all items have stayed there until I’ve been ready to purchase them! Thanks so much, Steve! :D
