Since I hadn’t really heard much buzz about Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy, I was excited to try it out and share my experience with you!

But… I was slightly worried how well this was actually going to work because I’m so picky about clothes! 😬

So I wondered how will I really like the perks of trying things on at home? 🤔 Plus, I like to see and feel the selection of clothes at the store. And of course, I was worried that I’d be stuck with clothes that I didn’t even like. 🤷‍♀️

Here’s how to start shopping Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy:

First, head to to check out Prime Try Before You Buy.

You can easily browse Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy by category (adults, kids, and baby), brand, or even their more curated groups like College-Ready Finds or Wardrobe Basics.

Hip Tip: If you’re not one to browse endless options online, you can also save time by trying out a Personal Shopper with Prime Try Before You Buy. It’s simple and a great way to have someone else curate a new haul of clothes for you to try on. Plus, you’ll get to approve everything before it ships! I tried it and love it!

Note that if you want to use this Personal Shopper service, you will be charged a styling membership fee of $4.99 per month and it can be canceled at any time. 

Next, add the items you want to try to your cart for free.

It’s really that easy! I decided to stick with staple pieces that I can mix and match any way I want. Here’s what I ended up picking (from left to right):

Finally, once your order arrives, it’s time for a fashion show!

I did receive my order in about a week! Impressive! 👏 It was so fun to try everything on at home and it totally beats the hassle of rushing in and out of a fitting room and multiple stores.

I really love all of the Amazon brands – I even recently tried this dress (currently unavailable, but I found a similar one) that I’m obsessed with! In my opinion, you can’t beat the convenience, low prices, and the quality of these items… and you get to try them for free at home – can’t beat that!

The materials for everything exceeded my expectations like Amazon brands have been doing since I first tried them last fall.

The good news is…

If you don’t like something, you can easily return it for FREE! Your entire order will come in a resealable shipping bag or box with an adhesive prepaid return label, so all I had to do was let Amazon know that I didn’t like something within the 7-day try-on period and then drop off the return shipment at a UPS location or schedule a pick-up. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Let’s recap why I love Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy:

  1. It’s FREE to try.
  2. Saves you time since you avoid going to a store.
  3. No hassle with dressing rooms.
  4. You can carefully select your clothes from the comfort of your home.
  5. You get happy mail (i.e. something other than bills in the mail!).
  6. It limits impulsive spending at the store.
  7. Delivery is fast.
  8. You get 7 whole days to try on your clothes (note that the 7-day try-on period begins once all the items in your order arrive).
  9. You only pay for what you want.
  10. The returns are FREE and easy

There are a couple of things I didn’t totally love about Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy…

The clothes can get pricey.

Sure it’s great to online shop, but I did notice that a significant amount of the clothing can get pretty expensive and if you’re not careful, you can easily run up your cart total. I also didn’t spot many sale items, so you will likely be paying full price for many.

Sizes tend to be unavailable.

I found items that I liked but then noticed that a lot of sizes were sold out. This caused me to miss out on the opportunity to try on items I may have really loved.

You can’t just order 1 item.

Unfortunately, if you’ve had your eye on just one item, you can only place a Prime Try Before You Buy order with a minimum of 2 items (regardless of the cost).

Here’s what one Hip2Save reader said about her Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy experiences:

“I use Prime Try Before You Buy for shoes, and it’s great! Living in a small town, the selection on Amazon is so much better than what I can find here. I love that I can try several styles, different sizes, and simply pack up what I don’t want to keep. It has gone really well every time and there have even been times I’ve had to return everything!

I was freaking out the first time I placed an order because 7-8 pairs of shoes amount to hundreds of dollars, but they don’t charge your account unless you keep them, and I was careful to return what I didn’t want ASAP! Again, such an easy experience. 

Trying on stuff at home is so much better and with plenty of time to try everything on, no pressure from sales reps, and being able to pack it back up on my own time in the same box it came in, Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy is a no brainer for me!” -Amy

    This is wonderful! I love retail shopping and this really would fit the bill. However, this is a safety concern for all the amazon workers coming in contact with the returns. Have you seen the articles about amazon closing warehouses because workers were getting sick? This is also the reason Target stop accepting returns. No one knows who has the Cornovirus in their household, so I’m not sure why amazon would continue a service like this, which is non essential. This is a wonderful and informative article yet, in the times we are living in now, people are more concerned on where to find essential items like toilet paper, hand sanitizer, food, and even Tylenol. Those are certainly more essential than trying on different types of clothing right now. If you could write and updated article where we know when and where to buy toilet paper, that would be nice

    • C

      I regularly find toilet paper, hand sanitizer, food, and pain medications at Aldi and Target. And while I understand that this does not seem like a priority to you, that does not mean it’s not a priority or essential for somebody else. I imagine that most people would consider clothing essential, and you never know what situation somebody might be in.

      Sandra, it’s a 99% survival rate. Find a new cause.

      • Sara

        Lol! This may be my favorite h2s reply ever. 😉

  2. Holly

    I ordered some stuff last week and I’m getting it on Friday. Yay! Love this.

  3. ellen

    How is this different than ordering clothing that is Prime with free returns? Other than the return window is shorter with prime closet or whatever this is called.

    • jen

      They don’t charge you until you decide what you’re keeping.

    • Sara

      Like another person commented, Ellen, you are not charged for your order unless you choose to keep the item/s. Hope this helps!

    • Ann

      The returns do not count against your account. This is very important for some people. I live in a rural landlocked city so amazon is a lifeline to buy many items. I have known people get their account taken away for too many returns. There is supposedly a dollar % of items you can return, it has been told to someone I know who got an account suspended do to returns that it is over 10%. My neighbor ordered a bunch of girls clothes for her tween age daughters for back to school. 10 & 12 are hard ages to find clothes to fit, and our school want modest shorts and we have few retail options. My neighbor’s husband has returned an expensive computer part the week before, he had ordered the wrong one. Then she returned a bunch of the clothes, she did buy some, but some did not fit so she returned. The computer part plus the clothes put her return total as too high compared to the dollar amount of items kept. She tried to fight it but the took away her prime. She now has to use her sister’s or one of us in the neighborhood to buy stuff. It is not just her, there are countless other stories out there like hers. I now an so careful with returns. Luckily my husband buys about $500 a month of work supplies and always keeps them so I feel okay with most small returns. I am very careful with large ones. This clothing program made a lot of people who worry about their return amounts, happy and start to buy clothes again.

    I wish they would allow you to use a debit card instead of credit cards only. I have worked hard to get out of credit card debt but would love this service.

    • mommyof51987

      We use our visa debit card for Amazon all the time. I am confused as to why you aren’t able to.

      • Sarab

        I agree that I wish they would accept debit cards. I use my debit card all the time with Amazon orders with no problem, but it isn’t accepted with Amazon Wardrobe. We don’t have a credit card so I am unable to use this much needed service.

        • mommyof51987

          Oh really?! I have never used Amazon wardrobe but that seems odd. Have you contacted customer service. They should be able to run a debit card just like a credit card if need be.

      • Megan

        Same- I use my Mastercard debit card with no issues.

  5. frugal-fit-sexy

    Thanks, I’m tired of buying and returning. I’ll definitely give this a try. I’ve come across so many great articles of clothing on Amazon. As a HS teacher I need a big wardrobe and about half is from target and Amazon. BTW, Sara you have that perfect body where anything looks great on you.

  6. Ann

    I know that amazon sells huge pallets of clothing returns in a Vegas warehouse. My husband several times a year travels to the area for work. I looked at buying one of the pallets since he drives there and has space in his truck. Shipping on the pallets can be very expensive but if you pick up they are a bargain. I do not know if every area does this, or if it is just certain brands that they put on the pallets? The pallets had a list if sizes and basic descriptions , like 3 red dresses size large, 2 pairs of flared jeans size 8. It is a real place, my husband looked at a pallet of tools and they he said they had many pallets of clothing returns but it was overwhelming to him and he just did not feel comfortable buying 500 pieces of random womens clothing.

  7. Amy

    I use Prime Wardrobe for shoes, and it’s great. Living in a small town, the selection on Amazon is worlds better than what I can find here, and some of the shoes I like are WAY too pricey to take chances. So I can try on several styles from the same brand, or multiple sizes of the same shoe, and just pack up what I don’t want to keep. It has gone really well every time, though i sometimes return everything and keep an eye out for future sales on a particular brand/style, when I start to think about whether I can justify spending the money right then.

    Honestly, I was freaking out the first time I placed an order because 7-8 pairs of shoes was hundreds of dollars! But they don’t charge your account unless you keep them, and I was careful to return what I didn’t want ASAP. It is really nice to have the big box at home though, with plenty of time to try on and no pressure, and I like the way you can just pack it back in the same box (mine have all come with a tear strip to open and you put the other flap on the outside when you repack it, and it has a sticky strip ready to reseal).

  8. pjane

    I love this.

    • amber-6

      Thank you for sharing that video! I haven’t even thought about how the products that I return might not end up being resold as new or how much it costs the companies to process the returns. Very eye opening.

        • mommyof51987

          Wow! Makes me want to dumpster dive behind kohl’s. JK On a somber not though that is terrible. What a waste.

        • acgold

          In NY it is illegal to take things from dumpsters behind stores. It is considered stealing- even if it garbage!

      • mommyof51987

        Yeah I was truly shocked!

    • MrsG

      In the south we have “dirt cheap” stores where returns get sent and they are GREAT!

      • mommyof51987

        Wow I wish we had those here.

  9. Morticia

    I was able to order just one item from Amazon Prime Wardrobe…no problem. I have seven days to return my item (which I am keeping). If ordering one item worked for me, perhaps it will work for others.

  10. Tracey

    I’ve tried this before and was happy to be able to try before buying. I ended up buying most of the items including a pair of jean capri’s that I love. I hope that since any returns are sent directly back to Amazon that they are quarantined and then put back for someone else to try. I would hate to not be able to return items that do not fit or that I don’t like, but it seems like they could donate the items to a Goodwill or someplace where they can benefit someone instead of throwing things away.

  11. Kenna Porter

    How is this different from buying a few items and returning what you don’t want?

    • Emily (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Kenna! With Try Before You Buy, you are not charged for items when you checkout, and will only pay for what you keep. Hope that helps!

  12. Dee OH

    Make sure you keep everything you’re returning with their originally packaging barcodes!! I ordered 4 Brixton hats, kept one and returned 3 because I didn’t know if I’d need a small or medium in sized hats. For MONTHS my account showed I only returned 2 because one of them didn’t have the originally packaging barcode. It took them 3 MONTHS to contact me to say if I didn’t return the item I’d be charged. I naturally reached out to customer service to tell them I DID return the item nearly a quarter of a year ago. Long and short, I don’t order from Amazon anymore after being charged $60 for a hat I returned to them 3 months prior. Buyers beware.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! SO sorry to hear about that. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

  13. abenda

    Is your coat from prime?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes it is! You can grab it here.

      • abenda

        Thanks! Very cute! Been looking for one with a big hood!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re welcome!
