Horse.com Vs. Statelinetack.com: Review & Coupon Code

In this report

If you are looking to buy horse supplies, both Horse.com and State Line Tack have great selections of equestrian products. You can find anything from horse tack and grooming supplies to riding apparel and horse supplements, with the exception of horse vaccines and prescription pain medications; neither Horse.com or State Line Tack sells these items. Both websites ship products to all the 50 states of the United States and to Canada and give you a 30-day return policy and satisfaction guarantee. Both Horse.com and State Line Tack offer the same brands and items and the prices can seem similar at first, however, you can save considerable amount of money by buying from one site instead of the other.

#1 - Horse.com   http://www.horse.com

Horse.com is a reader friendly site that is easy to navigate. You can browse items by department or search using a keyword, brand or SKU number. You can also find clearance or special promotion items easily under specific links. Shipping costs depend on the weight and size of the items. A positive feature of the site is that they list the shipping cost before checkout. This makes it easy to compare the final cost of your order before signing in. Another great feature is that you do not need to pay sales tax or tax on shipping and handling, unless your order is sent to Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. There is an extra $19.99 fee for shipping to Alaska or Hawaii. A clear weakness of the site is that you need to sign in with an email address and continue the checkout process before these additional costs are revealed to you. You can pay your order with major credit cards, paypal, Google and Amazon checkout or choose a bill me later option. Another great feature of the site is that as of July 2011, if you use bill me later option, horse.com offers a no interest and no payments plan for orders over $99 if paid in full within six months.

#2 - Stateline Tack   http://www.statelinetack.com

State Line Tack website is almost identical with horse.com site. The navigation is the same as well as the checkout process. As with horse.com, you need to pay sales tax and tax on shipping and handling for all orders shipped to Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. What differentiates the sites is that State Line Tack offers a flat rate shipping for $5.99 on any orders up to 20 lbs. in weight. If your order is over 20 lbs., a minimal charge per pound is added. A weakness of the website is that the flat rate shipping offer is not mentioned on the home page and that the offer is only valid to the 48 contiguous states and excludes Alaska and Hawaii. State Line Tack charges an extra $19.99 for shipping to these two states just like horse.com. Another weakness of the State Line Tack website was the poor advertising of their other offers. For example, as of July 2011, State Line Tack offers a free shipping on all orders over $129. However, you did not find out about the offer until you proceeded with the checkout.

The Bottom Line

Horse.com and State Line Tack are both subsidiaries of TabCom, LLC, causing their products and shipping terms to be very similar. However, the cost of items and shipping vary between the sites and you can save a lot of money buying from Horse.com. Especially the clearance and special promotion items can have significant differences in the prices. For example, both sites have the same items on clearance but the price differences can be over $30 an item. As of July 2011, ordering the exact same bridle, saddle pad and a girth from horse.com cost you $126.96 with economy shipping, while the same order at State Line Tack cost $174.93 with the free promotional shipping on orders over $129. Bottom line - you can save a considerable amount of money by doing you research and checking the prices from both sites.
