Amazon.com has become increasingly popular over the past few years and for good reason. They offer millions of products at competitive prices. However, when it comes to buying home decor products such as lighting or furniture, it’s best to go with a specialized retailer like Elitefixtures.com.
Chances are Amazon and Elitefixtures.com prices are exactly the same. However, in the instance you find something for less, we offer a 110% price match guarantee on any Amazon.com product in addition to free shipping! However, there are a couple of things to compare between Amazon and EliteFixtures.com. Amazon recently announced that they would be charging sales tax to certain states (19 so far and will continue to add more states) which can make the total much greater than an identical order placed on Elitefixtures.com (we only tax if the item is shipped to New Jersey).
For example, a $500 Amazon order placed from California, would be taxed at 7.5% (not including county rates) bringing the total to $537.50, rather than $500 from Elitefixtures.com. This is not including the daily sales and discounts we have every month, which could even further widen the gap in prices.
Most importantly, Amazon also charges restocking fees for returns, with the restocking fee on some items reaching 50%! Nearly 4% of our orders on Elitefixtures.com end up being returned for buyer’s remorse, a common issue when ordering home decor products online. Unlike Amazon, we do not charge restocking fees, so our customers can shop with confidence.
