Raise your hand if you’ve heard of Grove Collaborative. Is it new to you? I signed up with them a couple of months ago after seeing a promotion in my Facebook feed. And now I’m a fully loyal customer and I want to tell you why.
But first, let me tell you about the offer I worked out with Grove just for Design Mom Readers. Here’s what new Grove Collaborative customers get FREE with their first $20 purchase:
– A full-size bottle of Mrs. Meyers Dish Soap (any scent you prefer!)
– A full-size bottle of Mrs. Meyers Hand Soap (any scent you prefer!)
– A full-size bottle of Mrs. Meyers Countertop Spray (yes, in any scent you prefer!)
– A handsome, hardworking Grove dishtowel
– A 2-pack of the BEST Grove Walnut Scrubber Sponges
– And 2 months of free VIP membership
I’m guessing you don’t know what the VIP membership is, because I had no idea what it was either until I experienced it. I confess, I thought it sounded cheesy when I was first told about the VIP account, but it has actually become my favorite Grove perk. The VIP trial membership means that in addition to three Mrs. Meyer’s full size products, a really good dishtowel, and set of the very best sponges out there, for 60 days you’ll also get free shipping, fun little gifts, exclusive sales and personal service. And you don’t have to set foot in a store!
For VIP accounts, Grove assigns you a personal contact. They email you each month and let you know what’s in your cart and when it will ship and make sure you have plenty of time to update or change things or even skip a delivery if you’re all stocked up. They give you free shipping, special deals, and they add fun freebies and gifts to your box of goodies.
I really love the VIP service. They email, and it feels like when your spouse texts you and says, “I’m at the store, is there anything I can pick up?” I truly find it helpful. And you get 60 days of VIP membership, plus all those free products, when you sign up with Grove today.
To get the fabulous free welcome kit, click here. When you click over, you’ll be asked a few questions and your cart will auto-fill with $20 worth of product as a suggestion. Of course, you can switch out anything and everything, no problem at all. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you realize that Grove’s prices are really good. In fact, I found many items to be less expensive than what I’d find at Target — plus I don’t have to drive there and stand in line, and I won’t end up with yet another throw pillow in my cart, plus a swimsuit cover I don’t actually need, and a dozen random things from the dollar section. Hah!
Now, back to why I love Grove. There are 3 main reasons: 1) I’m a Mrs. Meyers customer, but there isn’t a single brick & mortar store I shop at that keeps all the scents in stock. So I always feel a little bummed that I’m not getting the full offering. But Grove stocks it all. Speaking of which, have you tried radish scent? I know it sounds like it would be harsh or bitter, but it’s heavenly. It might be my favorite of the Mrs. Meyers scents, and locally, no one ever seems to carry it. (But Grove sure does.)
Reason number two: Grove has put together a really smart collection of goods. They’ve done the research for me, so my decision making is easy. You can shop by category, by brand, by best sellers — and they’re careful to only stock the really good stuff.
For those of you who live in towns where you don’t have easy access to shopping, Grove will deliver all those products you’ve been hearing about right to your door. For those of you who have a Target or Whole Foods within 15 minutes of your house (raising my hand), I still prefer Grove for many items because it’s well-stocked, it’s much more convenient, and the prices are often better. (Go check out the Free Welcome Kit and see what I mean.)
Reason number three is the VIP treatment I described above. I love the friendly checkins and reminders. I’m never pressured to buy anything, and when I get a box and discover the freebies and gifts they included, it’s always such a treat.
Want to give Grove a try? This welcome gift is the perfect excuse to sign up and see what it’s like. In order to get your free kit, simply order $20 worth of household items from Grove. I promise that coming up with what to buy for $20 will be easy as can be. They very likely already carry your favorites.
I should also mention: Yes, your free welcome gift focuses on cleaning products, and I do love buying cleaning products from Grove, but I also love shopping their health & beauty section. They stock everything I need, and they have terrific prices — so I don’t have to stop at several different stores to find my favorites. My last order included: Yes to Cucumber Makeup Removal Wipes (travel size, please!), Acure Organics Repair Serum, Dr. Bronners Peppermint Soap (my absolute favorite bar soap), Yes to Grapefruit SPF Moisturizer, and a lovely tube of hand cream included as a free bonus.
Give it a try and then tell me what you think! I want to hear what scents you pick for the 3 Mrs. Meyers Freebies. Does anyone else love the radish scent like I do? And have you tried the Walnut Scrubber Sponges? They really are the best.
P.S. — When I say Grove has all the Mrs. Meyers scents, I’m not kidding. They even have the limited edition scents like peony and lilac!
