Review: The bigger and better Agape Babies + Discount Code

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

If you don't already know, I am pretty well-known for shopping online. This is especially important for mommies like me who are pretty much stuck at work which has crazy hours or with the kids and have hardly any time to shop at the brick and mortars. For the last couple of months, I have been trying to curb this obsession. Mainly because we were staying with the in-laws and I didn't want to appear to be a spendthrift. However, it was tough. It's tough enough to have 7 people squeezed in a tiny space, and it's tougher to detox from my favourite hobby. I needed my sanity to be in check. Parcels over parcels came and soon, even my mother-in-law was getting me to give her advice on online shopping! She recognised that there were certain items where we could get cheaper online and it is so convenient as it was just a click of the mouse!

So I was browsing for a pair of food scissors for my little ones. It has been bugging me that we couldn't even make a 5minute trip to the nearest mall to get a pair of scissors due to our tight working schedules. A quick search and I realised that Agape Babies now carry my favourite brand 3M! And , they had the 3M Scotch portable food scissors which I had been wanting to get! This was my first pair of scissors which unfortunately got confiscated during one of our trips as the husband had forgotten to take it out from our handcarry and it was taken away from us during customs check. Since then, I had purchased some other brands which unfortunately rusted after a few months. I was reluctant to get 3M again. Firstly because I couldn't quite find it in the malls nearby and secondly, when I do find it, it is expensive -- Approximately $15! So when I found that it was going for only $12.50 on Agape Babies, I had to grab!

A quick browse and I realised that Agape has increased its product range. Namely, it has included the current IT bag for mommies -- Jujube! If you haven't check that out, please do as they are having a promotion currently. They have over 200 items under Jujube! Totally exhilarating when you browse the catalogue! The designs are so attractive, I am trying to find an excuse to add it to my collection! It makes diaper bags a whole lot more sleek and organised. 

They have approximately 296 items under Jujube

Their product selection has increased and apart from hot brands like Jujube and 3M, they now carry over 250 brands and 6000 products over 10 categories! Plus, look out for their weekly deals every Wednesday! 

Now, if you are a first time customer, you can choose between two free gifts - Mustela Trial Kit (worth $10) or Bellamy Milk Tin ($25.95)!  And these together with all your other purchases will be delivered to your abode in a jiffy! Speaking of delivery, I had excellent experience with Agape. I ordered some items in the wee hours of the night, and the next day, an email was sent to me informing me that items are being prepared for shipping! Before I knew it, the parcel was right by my door step within 3 working days! This could be a life saver if you need that tin of Bellamy's pronto! I knew I had to rely on such efficiency when Big K was on Bellamy's when she was below 2yo. Being an advocate of breastfeeding, I am also very happy to see Agape Babies house brands like Freemies, Medela, Spectra and Unimom. In addition, they also sell Feenugreek (a supplement which was a lifesaver during my breastfeeding days) and is priced reasonably cheaper than at retail outlets. 

And before you think that it is a site only for moms, hang on! The kids are in for a treat too under their Toys section! They house over 500 items under their Toys category. Amongst them are popular brands like Disney, Skiphop, Melissa & Doug, Y-volution, Parklon, Trunki and many more. I couldn't resist but to pick up a couple of items for the kids. If you need to get that last minute birthday present for a little one, this is the site to go! And if you can't wait, there is self-collection option at 3 convenient locations -- Newton, Sengkang and Old Airport Road. Smaller parcels enjoy 72 pickup locations! Details here.

The entire shopping experience was great as it was smooth and more importantly I was browsing everything via mobile. It is now mobile optimised such that it feels like an app. One can also enjoy the one-step checkout and one-click sign! I love that! I detest it when you are near the finishing line and trying to checkout but the site needs you to fill in a 101 pages before transporting you to the payment page!

Right now, I have a great deal for you! For my readers only, you are entitled a 5% discount! Just quote: mmm5%. This promo is valid for only 3 weeks (10 Aug - 31 Aug) and excludes Jujube items, milk, diapers, wipes, medela breast pumps, sale and clearance categories.
