Does anyone know of any good websites that could be compared to the Lakeside Collection or LTD Commodities?

Dear Jennifer, The one I know of is WomanWithin.com. They do the bill me later. God Bless, Connie
I need a great website to find a teenager free printable birthday card. Any suggestions?
By Dixie L.
*** Sorry, forgot to add this, the Care2 & 123Greetings tend to have animated greetings cards which wouldn't do for printing although I'm sure they have some non-animated ones available.
Since you are looking for a teenanger AND non-animated (so you can print it), probably the SomeEcards.com would be the best way to go.
I've always used www.123Greetings.com (http://www.123greetings.com/) as it is a free website that has hundreds of birthday or special occasion cards that you can email (aka Ecards) to someone, even have them sent on their birthday that is months away.
If your recipient likes nature-based cards, I would recommend Care2 (www.care2.com/ecards/) which has more nature/animals/environment-based free ecards available.
The last ecard option I know of is a funny but can be offensive depending on the card, website called Some Ecards (http://www.someecards.com/). You find these cards typically on facebook and pinterest etc and have more of the rude/funny sort of humor.
Hope this helps!
I need to buy Christmas gifts. I have no money and bad credit, and would like to find some "Buy now pay later sites."
By Davionna from Detroit
FIGI is you're best bet. They don't check your credit and don't send a bill till Feb. I think it's Figi.com. They deliver all over the country making gift giving easy.

The best thing to do is to go to a dollar store, buy some Christmas stationery, envelopes and a pen. Write notes to everyone telling them what they have meant to you this year, what you admire about them, what you have learned from them, etc. I heartily agree that in your situation you do not need to spend any more than this on presents.

I am not trying to be mean but you do not 'need' to buy Christmas presents. That's just a make me feel and look good to others feeling and profits for stores or online sales companies thing to do. :-(
No matter where or how you purchase these gifts it will come back to bite you in the rear if you don't have the cash on hand. (12/09/2009)
I tried Fingerhut a couple of months ago. I have also tried a couple of other sites like that, but I can't find any more. Does anyone know any sites that I can use? I have bad credit, so if they do a credit check they won't send me items. Any sites that have 3 months deferred payment, or something similar, would be good.
Thank you for the help,
Go to ltdcommodities.com. You have to register as a "business", so make up a name for one, then you can order anything from their catalogs. Get an invoice with order to pay later. Nothing to pay when ordering. Catalog may say, for example, "$5.95 in groups of 3". That means if you order 3, you don't pay shipping. You can order just one if that is all you need. I order from here every 2 or 3 months. (04/11/2005)

Try www.abcdistributing.com. I could get some stuff there, and they are not very expensive. They do have a limit for the first time (04/11/2005)
When using LTD Commodities, you still pay shipping and handling if you order three or more of the same item, it's just at a reduced rate. Since you billed for the amount due, you don't know how much the postage and handling fee will be when you order, sometimes that charge can be high. I think a lot of the mail order companies are making a lot more money on the handling charges. Try www.lakeside.com, it is similar to LTD Commodities but you have to prepay. But you know how much shipping and handling will be. It doesn't carry as many items as LTD Commodities but enough to keep my interest. I usually have to save my money to place an order. I save for a few months then place an order. (04/12/2005)
Yes, try for Swiss Colony, Midnight Velvet, Country Door, Monroe and Main, or Ginnys. They are all sister companies. They are not overly picky about credit. Order small to start, they may require a down payment. Great about returns, broken items, and so on. They review your payment history about every 6 months and would then up your credit for good payments. I do work there and they do give credit to a lot of people who can not get it elsewhere. You can find them all online, each catalog has their own line of credit. (04/12/2005)
I do order from seventh avenue and monroe and main, I have a $600.00 credit with seventh avenue and all they required from me on my first order was 10% of the order. They are worth it. (11/21/2007)
