Centsible's New Stores Series - #2 Oneida

Centsible's New Stores Series - #2 Oneida

Shopping Tips for Oneida Online: Coupon/Promo Codes, Sales and Free Shipping

Again, Oneida is not a new store by any stretch of the mind, but is new to Centsible's online shopping mall. Out of the entire flatware industry, Oneida has the top 5 designs. They specialize in Stainless, Silver-Plated in Sterling SilverWare/Flatware. Oneida doesn't stop at silverware and flatware though: they offer an entire line of tableware products. Around for over 100 years, Oneida isn't going anywhere. Oneida has a special line of designs that will not ever be retired. This is important when building an heirloom set of flatware: you can easily replace a missing piece or add on additional sets, all in the same design. Not all of Oneida's design are lifetime though: if you're looking to build your set over time or create an heirloom, be sure to look for the "Pattern Forever" logo.

Oneida Shipping

Oneida is probably the ONLY company that offers free shipping to Canada. There is a minimum purchase amount to receive this (of course), $120 Canadian Dollars. Free shipping for those of us in the United States have to spend $99 USD and that is just for orders shipping to the 48 contiguous United States. We don't see any free shipping offers for Hawaii and Alaska, and Oneida only uses UPS shipping, so ANY shipping to Post Office Box Addresses is out of the question.

What does Oneida Sell?

Oneida sells not only its famous flatware, but also: kitchenware, serveware, fine porcelain, gifts, wine accessories, barware, drinkware, cutlery, bakeware, cookware, roasters, gadgets and more.

Are there any big sales at Oneida online? Of course there are! Everyweek there is are "Sizzling Deals" that can be up to 50% discounts and more. As Oneida retires its non-lifetime flatware patterns, those go on sale. There is the standard "Clearance" section. You'll also find other BOGO offers and sales on specific Oneida sets.

Oneida Shipping Costs

We've already mentioned about Oneida's free shipping spend thresholds and also the fact that Oneida is perhaps the ONLY online store we've seen that extends free shipping offers to Canada. Their regular shipping charges are based upon the dollar value of the merchandise being purchased, as well as the speed of delivery requested. Expedited delivery through UPS is also offered for Oneida orders.
