My Opinion:
I really wanted to love this store and recommend it whole heartedly.  I really like their products and what they stand for, but problem after problem arose.  As apart of the campaign I was sent a $25 coupon to use on the store and review my experience.  I was REALLY excited!  I got my coupon in the mail, and since the store in my state is over 245 miles away from me, I must order online.  I had already scoped out what I wanted and was ready to order!  But when I went to use the coupon it said it was invalid.  After many attempts with many different items in the cart it still refuses to accept my $25 dollars....

But since I was to review my experience and not my purchase I'm still sharing what I saw and my personal opinion.

There were also many product prices that were quite a bit more expensive on FamilyChristian.com than I could get on the online stores I frequently use.  And like some, those dollars saved go a LONG way for me and my family.  Perhaps if I had been able to use the summer deal of Buy 1 Get 1 50% off, it would have helped also....  

There are many aspects of the store I do still like, though.  When I choose to see products from the Lowest Price, Name A-Z, Newest to Oldest, etc. it saves that so even if I change from Music to books I don't have to start all over again in seeing it in the order I want.  They have a $5 deal on the book of the week (though there is shipping).  And they have special order on items they don't currently have in stock.  Meaning that if you find it on their store and they don't have it, they will get it for you from their partner or vendor.  

There fix for the issue was for me to call support and order over the phone.  Since I don't talk on the phone this is not a fix for me....  Plus I wanted to review my experience online and not on the phone.

Overall from my experience I think I'll be sticking with christianbook.com. :/  

P.S. the product recommendations are from the store itself.  I can not recommend the products because I either have not read, watched, used, or listened to them.  With exception to Miracles from Heaven (which I have seen, and HIGHLY recommend!  It is a FABULOUS movie) and of coarse veggie tales! ;)  I LOVE veggie tales! :D
