Family Christian Stores Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

I was selected to do a review of my shopping experience with Family Christian Stores. To assist me with my review, I was given a 25 dollar coupon to do some shopping.
Family Christian is a Christian retailer, operating in 250 stores across the country. They are committed to helping you find, grow, share and celebrate your faith through a wide selection of Christian books, music, Bibles, DVD's gifts and more. When you shop with Family Christian, your purchases support their efforts to unite with ministries that are helping children and families in need around the world.

To start my shopping I went online (we do not have a Family Christian Store nearby) and started browsing. I had in mind at least one item I wanted, so my first stop on the website was to search for that item. The search engine on the site is easy to use and works well. After finding my book I wanted (Kristy Cambron's latest The Ring Master's Wife) I decide to try to find another book or movie to take advantage of their Buy 1 get 1 50% off sale they were having.
I can't remember what I picked but I found another book to buy and added something else to make my total over 25 dollars. I then proceeded to try to check out. That is where the frustration began. Because of a glitch with the coupon I was not able to use my coupon and get the buy1 get 1 at the same time. When I tried to call customer service I couldn't get thru. I also emailed them and it took them 2 days to email me back. However, when they did email me back they were very kind and offered to help me in any way they could. I had already placed my order though, by the time they responded to my email, so it was to late to change anything.  Because of the glitch I ended up ordering the book I wanted, a set of Bible highlighters for studying and a book mark. This went smoothly since I was not using the buy1 get 1 and my order was processed quickly and shipped very fast. I received my order within a week and it was complete and packaged very well.

Overall the shopping experience was not all bad and the items I received met expectations. I am going to offer some words of advice on how to use your coupon should you win the giveaway.

1. If you have a Family Christian store nearby, use it. The coupon will work properly in stores.

2. If you do not have a store nearby, find the items you want online and then call the customer service number to place your order. The coupon will work with the sale if you call them.
Be advised the coupon will only cover the price of the items purchased. They must equal at least 25 dollars (pre tax) and it does not cover shipping.

Follow this advice and you should have a very pleasant shopping experience!

         Be sure to take advantage of their buy1 get 1 sale. They also have lots of sale and clearance items.

Accu-Gel Bible Highlighter Study Kit (Pack of 6)
The Ringmaster's Wife
Cupcakes and Jesus Be Yourself Bookmark
These are the items I bought. I can't wait to read the book!

  1. I can't enter to win... but your review is great! I had precisely the same problem you did, but the customer service was very helpful. However my order did not process as quickly, possibly due to a pre-order item I requested that doesn't release until October. I am hoping however that my other items arrive before then.

  2. great review! :) I like the highlighters. :)

  3. Congrats! My Father is the King of Kings. You won!
