The Claim

Typical grocery bags rip and spill. Try Grab Bag instead. These bags allow you to store more groceries so you are not making an endless amount of trips to the car. You can easily fill them and ensure they are compact because they clip to the inside of your cart - so they stay open. All you have to do is sit them in your car and you never have to worry about them falling over because of their broad base and closing flaps. Grab Bag can hold several bags of groceries and can even hold a 40 pound dumbbell without ripping. When you are not using them, just fold Grab Bag and store it in your car or cupboard. They are the perfect grocery store accessory and they even come with a front pocket to hold shopping lists and your wallet! But Wait! Read our Investigation. ▼

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of 2 Grab Bags is $14.99 plus free shipping. If you opt-in to purchase a third insulated grab bag, you'll add $14.99 to your order for a total price of $29.98. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page:

Avoid the Scam!

This is what we'd advise for most As Seen on TV product; however, after a complete analysis of, we've found there is NO SCAM! Usually sales pages are tricky. They ask how many sets you would like; the average customer clicks '2' thinking that they will receive 1 and get 1 free, when in fact a set is a set of 2 products. By clicking 2, they end up being charged for 4! This is NOT true with this product. They clearly state "How Many Grab Bag Sets (2 Bags Per Set) Would You Like?". This is very impress, upfront and honest.

Hidden Shipping Fees is the most common complaint amongst TV advertised products. However, we were surprisingly impressed to find out that the Official Sales Page for this item offers FREE SHIPPING.

Warranty Warning

This is where we would normally warn you that even if you aren't happy your purchase, you are better off keeping it then returning it as you'll lose all your shipping fees. (Which typically cost as much, if not more than the products.) offers a 30 Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee AND because you receive free shipping, you don't have to worry about losing any money on your purchase.

Save Time

Forget about having to make three trips to the car for your groceries. Grab Bag can hold up to 40 pounds so you can put all of your groceries in one bag. This will save you so much time. You will not have to keep running back and forth to the car because everything can be carried inside at once. The bag clips to the sides of your cart so filling them up is extremely easy.

Easy to Use

  1. Open It
  2. The first step is to open it turning Grab Bag into a basket.

  3. Place It
  4. Place it in your cart by attaching the sides to your cart. This keeps your Grab Bag open.

  5. Fill It
  6. Since Grab Bag automatically stays open you can fill it up quickly at the checkout counter.

  7. Close
  8. Close the handles shut. This causes Grab Bag to change from a basket shape into a durable bag.

  9. Trunk
  10. Put Grab Bag in your trunk. The flat base assures you that it will not tip over and nothing will spill.


11.25″H x 7.5″W x 2.62″D
- While grab bags are advertised and design to fit in shopping carts; it's important to note that not all shopping carts are the same dimension. Customers have filed complaints when their bag didn't fit in their local grocery store carts. Be sure to check your cart dimensions before placing your order. If they don't fit nicely in your shopping cart, then they are no better to you than a cheap duffle bag.


  1. Groceries
  2. You can use Grab Bag to do your grocery shopping. The design lets you clip it to the sides of your cart, keeping it open for easy filling and unloading.

  3. Toy Chest
  4. A single Grab Bag can hold 40 pounds so it is perfect for your children’s toys. The flat base makes sure the toys will not tip over. Grab Bags are green which add a nice touch of color to any child’s room.

  5. Laundry
  6. Use Grab Bag as a laundry basket. A typical laundry basket can be embarrassing because everyone can see your unmentionables. Not to mention laundry baskets are often awkward and hard to carry. Grab Bags close shut keeping your dirty laundry hidden and the handle makes it easy to lift.


  • Easy To Clean
  • Grab Bag is extremely easy to clean. All you have to do is wipe it with a damp cloth.

  • Folds
  • Grab Bag folds completely flat so you can store it just about anywhere. Do not worry about going to the grocery store without reusable bags because when Grab Bag is folded it can be stored behind your seat or in the glove box.

  • Front Pocket
  • A front pocket is perfect for your wallet and cell phone. You do not have to worry about carrying your purse because Grab Bag can hold your money in the front pocket. It is perfect for grocery lists too.

  • Mold and Mildew Resistant
  • The material will dry very quickly. This makes Grab Bag mold and mildew resistant.

  • Flat Base
  • The flat base ensures your bags will never tip over.

  • Clip To Your Cart
  • The handles clip to your cart. This forces Grab Bag to form a basket which makes for easy filling.

Free Shipping

It is almost always better to buy merchandise locally, then order it online. If you buy locally and aren't happy with your item, you can simply return if for a full refund. What's more, if you avoid inflated shipping charges and confusing sales pages. The Grab Bag Site is different from most, in that they offer free shipping, and cell their bags at a lower price than any other retailer. This makes the only positive to buying locally is receiving it instantly.

Insulated Grab Bag

As advertised on TV, only the Green Grab Bags are available for direct purchase on the official sales page. If you want a Blue Insulated Grab Bag, you'll need to first purchase the standard bags and add the blue bag to your order. This is incredibly inconvenient as it result in people spending more money for no reason (if they only want the blue bags).

If you wish to only purchase insulated grab bags you can do so at the following online stores:

- $14.95: TV Stuff Sale

- $14.98: Get Organized

- $14.99: Dr. Leonards

- $14.99: Carol Wright Gifts

- Not Available: Amazon


Putting groceries in a bag while you shop and then using that same bag to transport your groceries home is not an original idea. In fact other companies have made similar bags that look the same as the Grab Bag. See the #1 Competing Shopping Cart Bag, available for $9.99 on Amazon.
Comes in Red, Blue, and Green.

Available Locally!

If you are hesitant in purchasing online, or want to avoid shipping wait times, you can buy these at Bed Bath & Beyond. They will soon be available for local purchase at Wal-Mart and Target. (However, aren't currently listed on their websites.)

Don't get us wrong, we do not care if you buy the bag or not. We also really don't care about these crazy facts regarding how horrible Plastic Bags are for the environment. After all, re-useable bags might not be as good as people think according to the statistics found here. Please read our full report above and at least 10 customer reviews below before you decide to buy or run. All in all, we're impressed with the Grab Bag and lack of sales tactic used on their official webpage. The material is what you would expect for a bag that costs under $10; however, the convenience they bring is priceless.

Don't Buy

I purchased a set of 2 to try before ordering more. The very first use, the handle broke. What is worse is that when I called the customer service number it says that it is not working at this time! What a complete and utter waste of money. I truly had hoped for a positive outcome. I believe the product is a great idea, however, very poor quality and no one to stand behind it.

Cheaply Made Not Worth a Dime

These bags are made of some recycled material that has the consistency of paper. I went shopping, loaded the bag and it ripped open as cleanly as if someone had taken a razor to it. Save yourself the money and the headache. You can get a much better set of bags for less money elsewhere.

Po'd in Alaska!

I think it's load of malarkey, that you want to charge an extra ten dollars when ordering from Alaska! Especially when you offer free shipping. We are a very large part of america , & we should not be charged extra because we live in ak. ! When I have ordered other products , & they had free shipping , they did not charge extra , & it makes me angry that you do! After reading a lot of review's I Decided to go ahead & order anyway, even tho most are bad reviews , & I would like you to know that I won't be buying your product , even when it comes out in our neighborhood stores either , just because you want to make an extra ten dollars from us Alaskans! It's bad enough we have a higher cost of living!

Straps Break

Everything about the bags is great, except the straps are made of some cheap material. Each used 4 times and that was that. If they were made of the bag material. . . There would be no problem.

Alright I thought you get warranty for a year, so if used four times in between in that year then call and have them replace it, no need to give them a bad review.

Yuck, Stinky Bags

I didn't actually order these bags. Went partially through he Grab Bag site, put my credit card info in but then decided I didn't need the bags and cancelled the order! They arrived anyway. I first thing I noticed was the horrible stink emanating from them. I put them out on my patio, hoping that the smell would dissipate. It didn't. I wasn't going to put my food in stinky bags, so I called customer service for information on returning them.

the cost to send them back was nearly half of what I paid for them. Disgusting. II.

I have something to say!

I tried calling Grab to place an order and it says it is the wrong number. I tried calling three times and got the same message. Kind of glad I did because after I read the reviews saying how cheaply made it was and tore apart and the poor customer service I think I have changed my mind. Also they wanted you to give your credit card information and there was no place to say how many sets you wanted to order.

I have not tried these and don’t intend to. The claim is the bag can hold 40 pounds. I don’t want to lift a 40 pound bag of groceries from my car. Try getting a store sacker to not overfill that sucker. Think I’ll just sit back and watch a bit and see how this plays out.

Forty pounds is heavy at least for a senior woman like me. Almost as heavy as a 50 pound big bag of dog food or "salt" for a water softener. I won't buy one because I've had sciatica and a sore shoulder and don't want them again.

I believe what Ellen was looking for was an actual store in her home town that she can visit and buy from to avoid ALL shipping fees. The answer is no. Right now they are not available in local stores; however, I'm sure you've noticed, all popular As Seen on TV products eventually end up getting distributed to local stores such as Walmart, Walgreen's as well as Bed Bath and Beyond.

How many Grab Bags would fit in the average grocery store shopping cart? Do these fit in all carts?

30 Jan 2015

Patti, These don't fit in every cart. My favorite grocery store has carts that have shallow sides. Also the upper portion of the cart is fixed and does not fold up. I can fit 1 bag in the bottom of this type of cart and 1 bag in the top portion; however, I can;t strap them to the sides of the carts. If you go to a store that has the traditional high sided carts, you'll be able to fit 2 bags per cart and should have no problem keeping them open.

Customer service for these thy of companies don't often reply to questions. You're lucky if they even reply when you have a problem or want a refund. Your best bet in contacting customer service is by calling them directly. The only problem with this is often you will spend an hour on the phone waiting to talk to a real person. There are even reports of people getting cut off and having o start their call / wait over again. From experience, I've found that if you want an answer, the best thing to do is post on a site like this and ask the public. We all help each other.

Typically products advertised on TV never work as the seller claims, some more than others. What bothers me about this particular site is that they only mention the good points claimed and have no "cons" also mentioned, then they are selling the product themselves. So it makes their review process pretty phony.

BJ, The information found on this page is more of a report then it is a review. That is why the have the review section about for multiple real customers to post their own opinions on the product. You can never fully trust a website that just writes a review themselves. Always look to see if there are both positive and negative reviews on the site posted by customers. That will tell you how honest the site is. This is the largest As Seen on TV review site, and the best as far as I'm concerned. Look at some other products and you will find that there are hundreds of both positive and negative reviews. Take a look at the XHose Pro page for example, there are 200 reviews written by real customers and they are almost all negative, because the product obviously sucks.
