I have recently discovered the AWESOMENESS that is Zulily.
That’s not to say I am new to Zulily. I am not. I’ve been a Zulily shopper for years now–I just never really knew how to shop on Zulily.
Believe me, it’s not rocket science. Anyone can do it.
And this is less of a Zulily review and more of a Zulily love letter.
Here’s the skinny. . .
How to Shop on Zulily
There are a few little tips and tricks that I’m going to share that will save you money and help you to get the most out of your time on the Zulily site.
It can be a lot to navigate, which is why I am HAPPY to help you find the best deals, especially for kids, family, and educators!
Why IS Zulily SO Affordable?
Zulily is a little different from how most online retailers work. New sales start daily, and are usually available for 72 hours.
After you find and purchase something special, Zulily waits until the sale ends to place one bulk order. The item is shipped to the Zulily warehouse in 8-10 days, and then they ship the item to you.
YES, this process takes a little longer, but it’s one of the key ways they’re able to keep prices low and selection fresh, every day.
1. First, SIGN UP!
Super simple, and I know the last thing you want to do is sign up for ONE. MORE. THING, but I promise this will be worth it.
Head to Zulily.
Create an account.
Get ready to save, save, SAVE!
2. Tell Zulily if You are a Teacher
Why? Because Teachers Get an ADDITIONAL 10% Off of EVERYTHING When Verified!!
Not. Even. Kidding.
Tell all of your teacher friends: Zulily loves teachers so much, that they are giving every, single teacher who is verified with them a discount ON TOP of other discounts.
Simply verify your educator status with Zulily to be enrolled in a FREE Zulily Teacher Program subscription, unlocking 10% off at checkout on every order you place for 90 days.
3. Look to Me for DEALS
Nearly every day, I share something that you need to check out on the Zulily site.
My focus is family and educators, home and school.
And? Because I’ve got some pals at Zulily, I have deals on TOP of the already-awesome deals on the Zulily site. Look to me for 10% off, 15% off, free shipping, and more.
I will share via email and my Instagram stories, so watch closely and be ready to swipe up!
Or, if you don’t really use social media and would rather have all the deals come straight to your inbox, let me know by adding your email here:
AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE: I will have deals on TOP of the already-awesome deals on the Zulily site. Look to me for 10% off, 15% off, free shipping, and more.
4. Ship Wisely, Friends
Zulily Weekday Shipping
From Sunday through Thursday, pay for shipping ONCE then get FREE SHIPPING on anything else you buy for the rest of that day.
When you place an order with paid shipping (Sunday-Thursday), it opens a window of free shipping on additional orders for the rest of the day. Once you’ve paid that first shipping charge, Zulily tries to consolidate subsequent purchases into a single shipment, and they’ll give you the lowest-priced shipping option for all items ordered by 11:59pm PT that same day.
FREE Weekend Shipping When You Buy on Friday or Saturday
Buy. Early. On. Friday.
Really. If you buy early on Friday, you get free shipping on anything else you order for the rest of the weekend.
When you place an order with paid shipping (Friday-Saturday), it opens a window of free shipping on additional orders for the rest of the weekend. Once you’ve paid that first shipping charge, we’ll try to consolidate subsequent purchases into a single shipment, and we’ll give you the lowest-priced shipping option for free for all items ordered by 11:59pm PT on Sunday.
5. Add Your Favorites and Create Your Own Little Shop
Simply, just click the little heart next to any brand, shop, or event that you like, and soon, Zulily will curate your very own ‘shop’.
Really–when you open the app or open the site and log in, you will see a catered-just-for-you Zulily staring right back at you. All things YOU love.
All things YOU shop for.
Tons of time-saving deals and steals for YOU.
The heart icon allows you to add a brand and get notified when it’s available on Zulily.
When you discover a brand you love, simply select the heart next to it. Then, you’ll get an email when that brand is coming up.
Selecting the heart next to a product adds it to your favorites too — visit your Favorites page often to determine if that product is available.
6. Know the Zulily Lingo and Symbols
That’s right. Just like any new-ish platform, you have to become familiar with the jargon used.
Know How to Use the Site
The Zulily site has undergone a major reno over the last few months, and now it’s easier than ever to find the things you want–and need.
Use the navigation bar to the right of the purple Zulily logo to find these helpful sections.
Look at New Today
Thousands of products go live every morning at 6am PT. Zulily features a ton of unexpected brands and products so you can find things you don’t see everywhere else.
Look at Ends Soon
Other sales end on the site since most items are available for three days. Look at the Ends Soon tab and find fab deals that are almost gone!
Look at Shop by Category
Categories make shopping easier. Look for what you need–and everything is there!
Look at Shop by Size
Anything that is in stock in the size, style, or brand you want can be found by Shop by Size. It’s a huge time-saver!
