Pleasure shouldn’t come at too high a cost.
by Nathan Reilly Sep 7, 2020
Not all businesses are suffering as result of the COVID-19 outbreak. In fact, some are booming. While many companies continue to search for novel ways to earn cash while maintaining government social distancing guidelines, online sex toy shops lie on the other end of the spectrum, soaring in sales since the stay-at-home orders were enacted in mid-March. And hey, we totally get it: the need to get yourself off is real.
If your yearly earnings allow for a particularly decadent purchase, this $15,000 gold-plated vibrator might be worth the investment. But if like us, you’re not trying to drop that kind of cash on an adult toy, we’ve got you covered.
Here are five online sex toy shops with the best discounts, deals, and prices we could find.
1. Ella Paradis
If you love free shipping without a spending minimum, Ella Paradis is where it’s at. All orders placed in the U.S., whether you spend $20 or $200, cost you zero in shipping—which may make you question why you’d ever again set foot into an actual sex shop.
Once you’ve placed an item into your cart, you’re eligible for other “special offers” aka more toys you can add to cart for cheaper deals. You might even find yourself with an offer for a free toy! (Yes, you read that correctly.) And if you find the same toy for cheaper by another authorized re-seller, Ella Paradis will match your price, even after you’ve already made the purchase (provided it’s within their refund time frame). Plan on ordering $100 or more worth of merch? You automatically receive a $5 gift card as a thank you. Still not sold? Use their coupon codes—right now it’s “BEACHY”—for an additional percentage off your total purchase.
Comparatively, Unbound Babes’s offers are the cheapest on this list, with their most expensive product—bundles excluded—currently listed at $99 (usually $128). If quarantine has left you with a higher-than-usual credit card bill, they also offer interest-free payment plans on orders over $50, so you won’t have to drop half your paycheck all at once. First time shopping with them? Sign up for their free membership for an instant $10 off. If you happen to already love their products, refer a friend for $10 off both of your next orders over $50. For those of you interested in making Unbound Babes your go-to, their points and rewards system allows you to easily earn points toward a special selection of merch by completing simple tasks like following them on social.
To start, you get $5 in points just for creating a free account that tracks rewards you receive from purchases. If you’re a college student, add an extra 20 percent off all orders by connecting your UNiDAYS account. Check daily and weekly to shop new clearance items, or sign up to receive emails on new deals for an initial 20 percent off your purchase. Through payment service Klarna, you can split purchases of $35 or more into four interest-free payments, while their program “Klarna Pay Later” let's you test drive your purchases free for 30 days. Just be sure to return items you don’t want before your trial period ends to avoid payments on anything you don’t love! (Disclosure: Returned toys are not reshelved.)
As their tagline declares, “Cheap doesn't always mean bad, and PinkCherry's collection of clearance sex toys is hard, throbbing proof!” Not only do they offer a wide range of clearance goodies with new arrivals added daily, but up to an additional 80 percent off all sale items with current promo code “FIFTY.” Spend $79 or more and choose one free gift from their list of three pre-selected goodies worth up to $39.99 each, and don’t forget to create a free account to earn points on your purchases toward money off future orders.
This website is a lifesaver for both your wallet and your sexually curious nature. They currently offer free toy bundles of three toys or more on all orders over $9. If you sign up to receive their email newsletter, you get 15 percent off your first purchase and 100 points toward their rewards program, which can be exchanged for a $5 gift card toward their site. Want to reap the full benefits of their points system? Receive one point for every dollar you spend, plus 10 points each time you review a product you’ve purchased. Peruse their clearance section to stack up on discounted toys, and use promo code “155919” for an additional 15 percent off any purchase of $59 or more.
