I am a big Gymboree fan and I finally purchased onlieg back in December and then again in Janurary. The dollar is so good at the moment and the sales were too good to miss. So I decided to give it a go. It was very easy and straight forward and all I needed was my credit card to purchase. The first purchase took exactly 2 weeks to arrive as I paid for standard postage which cost me $35USD. It gets delievered via DHL which is great because it gets dropped off to your local post office/delivery centre and its delieved by them and if you aren't home to get it, you just have to go pick up it up at your local post office.
I earnt some Gymbucks from my first purchase, I think it was about $40 worth which meant that on my next purchase of $80USD or more I would get $40 off! There is a time frame that you have to spend the Gymbucks in, but I got some amazing bargains and I think I ended up getting about 12 items for less than $8AUD each!! Including an amazing puffer jacket for one of my sons, that is so amazingly warm, anything like that here in Australia would cost a minimum of $60AUD. So that was an awesome purchase! I also ended up choosing Express postage which only cost me $30AUD and this is delievered by Fed Ex and the order arrived 3 days after I paid for it. You get a tracking number which gives you estimated delivery which for me was on time and was great because I knew when I needed to be home.
So this is all cool, but what is Crazy8? Well Crazy8 I would personally describe as a sister store perhaps? Kinda like the connection between Gap and Old Navy. I checked it out and I was happy with what I saw. I also have a friend living in Utah at the moment and she told me Crazy8 is good quality. So I decided to trial Crazy8 too as I was finding that I could get more for my money compared to Gymboree and I was liking more at Crazy8 for my daughter in particular this time round compared to Gymboree. This time round the promotion was 25% off my total order  in addition to other sales that happening as well. The 25% off  basically meant my postage was for FREE and instead of Gymbucks they have Crazy Cash so I scored $40 worth of Crazy Cash to go towards my next purchase. My other bonus came when I purchased. The AUD was stronger than the USD so instead of costing $122USD it came to $119AUD, but the downside was the bank charges for an international transaction which meant what I saved was added back in fees:o( But I still got 17 items of clothing for around $7.15 a piece! So I am happy about that:) The items are yet to arrive, so I will post again when they do.

My overall experience with these two companies prompted me to tell others, espeically Aussies, how awesome it is. You get good quality items sent to you for reasonable postage rates and with our dollar being so strong right now, its really a good time to stock up and save.

I grabbed some pics from the site to show you some of what I purchased:

The PJs are actually for me! They had adults sizes for this style.
