Default USA based bulk balloon supplier
Just came across balloonsfast.com. Has anyone ever bought from them? It looks like they have a wide variety of loons available, and fast shipping (or so they say) for people in the US. Their prices look very reasonable. Anyone have any experience with them?

I've used them in the past and had no problems. They were quick, economical and easy to order from.

I have also used them and they were, well, fast. Like the name says. No issues on my end.

Personally, I like All-American Balloons from the Dallas area. Normally pretty good inventory, though I've noticed lately they don't have a lot of the inventory of balloons I like to order.

Try Brody’s Balloons here in Broadview (suburban Chicago). I have used them a couple of times, and I am close enough to where I am able to pick up my order. The shop that I work at part-time uses them all the time!

Placed an order recently with BalloonsFast.com.

You have to pay shipping (and it isn't cheap) unless you drop at least $75 in product.

Order was filled, shipped, and received very quickly.

They dropped specific items from my order with no warning claiming unavailable, but there didn't appear to be a lack of ability to order them still through the web site.

The received pick list / packing list stated that I would receive a refund for the missing items, but there was no corresponding additional amount refunded for shipping. The refund took over a week to post to my account which means that the vendor does not process them quickly.

I received an email update claiming that my entire order was shipped and delivered even thought they knew full well that wasn't true/accurate.

I reached to inquire about why the items were pulled, why no notification prior to ship, why no options to have it sent later, opting for different colors, etc. I was effectively told to piss off and order again if I still wanted the items. I responded stating that makes it extremely cost-effective by having to pay all of the shipping again and they never bothered to continue the conversation.

To me, they demonstrated that they don't care about the customer - I won't be ordering from them again.

Hello. I am new to this business, so I am also looking for reliable suppliers of balloons. I plan to open an agency for the organization of holidays. Heard good reviews about balloons.online. Interesting to hear someone else's opinion.

Hi,

I see that you have had a bad ordering experience. Unfortunately I don't work for them but I am the owner of Balloune-QC.com and I can tell you that we don't treat our customers like that so don't hesitate to visit our site. We are in Canada but there is no surprise when you will be delivered because there is a free trade from Canada to the United States

I might make an order soon from your store. Do you offer discreet shipping?

I use their site for my orders.

Yes, the shipping was quite discreet. It's a standard brown box where the only time "balloon" is written is the small line where they have to declare what's inside.

Note that unless their system has changed they put the balloons in clear plastic bags with Balloune-QC stickers on them, not the original bags the balloons came in. Depending on your order, they might be split into smaller bags or all stuffed in one bigger bag.

I can also say the customer service is very nice. I mentioned in an email once that this was my first time ordering balloons online, and they sent some clips for free as a bonus along with a thank you note.
