How Shopswell Works

You make, share and browse curated and themed shopping lists on Shopswell. You need an invitation to join, but don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Click here to join now!

So far I have made four lists: Baby and Toddler Travel Gear (featuring my all-time favorite travel finds for wee ones), J’aime la France (with books about France, French decor, foods and other goodies to tempt Francophiles), For the Love of Lemons (lemon-themed home decor and lemon treats to eat and drink, many from lemon-loving Italy) and my Wishlist items (several of which happen to be my favorite color, pink!). Click though the previews of my lists below to see what items I recommend or want to buy.

Looking for a kicky new pair of sandals for your next vacation or an adorable outfit for a cruise or event? Streamline your shopping by perusing other boards, searching for key words, and following Shopswell peeps with similar tastes. Then create your own board of your favorite items to purchase now or come back to buy later.

Bargain Hunt with the Price Stalker

Did you know that prices can drop up to 30% on an online shopping item in one week? That’s where the Shopswell price stalker option comes in. Receive an alert when prices drop for that new high ticket item like a camera, smart tablet or high-end luggage. It’s like a fare alert à la Kayak or Airfare Watchdog, but for products instead of flights. Genius!

Win Items from Your Shopswell Wishlist

Once a week, Shopswell gifts community members with an item from their Wishlists as part of #AsYouWishWednesday. Each week they give away up to $100 worth of products, which has resulted in multiple winners receiving something dreamy from their lists. (To be eligible to win, be sure to enter you street address on your “Settings” page.) Want to win your wishes? Learn more here!

Of course, you can also put items on your Wishlist that you really just hope to purchase (or receive!). Many of the items on my Wishlist exceed the $100 #AsYouWishWednesday limit because that’s how I roll. I figure I can share my Wishlist with my husband for upcoming anniversary and holiday purchases. I’m going to encourage him to make one too…men can be so hard to shop for!

Shopswell vs. Pinterest

When Shopswell asked me to write a sponsored post, at first I couldn’t figure out how this website differs from Pinterest. Then I played around on their site and fell in love. Shopswell is similar to Pinterest in that it allows you to discover and share products you love, from travel gear to clothing, shoes, electronics, food and drinks and more. Shopswell, though, only features products that are currently for sale, so you don’t have to hunt and peck through a bunch of dead-end pins to find what you need.

Love Pinterest? Great, me too! This doesn’t replace Pinterest, it’s a different tool. Pinterest is about viewing and sharing compelling images, whereas this site is more about finding actual stuff to buy now or in the future. While Pinterest is for discovering reviews, blog posts and recipes, Shopswell is where to go to seek, share and learn about things you may want to purchase.
