nothing like shouting about it :whistling:

If you ever don't receive your item from them due to it being lost in the post have fun getting a replacement or refund. It took me 3 months :x

Who could resist that for 77p. Ideal to have in your car if you breakdown, just whip out the pig to see where your going ;)

Cheers. Heat added.

OP has specifically listed 4 cheap items in the title, hence this is a deal :)
#14
DealExtreme won't load for me? Anyone else having that problem?

I've ordered from them before with no problems at all. Service was quick and the goods were fine for the cost.
#15
Yes - down for me too. Good for replacement watch batteries, DS cards, torches and much more.
#16
Also unable to load their site - & still waiting on stuff ordered at beginning of December that wasn't posted until the 12th - but they do have some good cheap things, so will give them another chance

Hooray for the voice of reason. ;-) Never had a problem with dealextreme - always received everything that I've ever ordered - touch wood and fingers crossed my piggies find their way home. lol. Heat added :thumbsup:

There URL isn't being resolved at the moment but it's probably a temporary problem. I've ordered stuff from them quite a few times and been very pleased with their customer service.
#19
They're usually pretty reliable, good prices although the products usually reflect their price just to warn you. The website being down will definitely be a temporary issue.
#20
Excellent customer service.
They sent me the wrong cable once.
Sent the correct one and said I could keep the other as a gift :)
#21
They sound alright then. Thanks for the info about them.

There's a few small things I could maybe do with and being so cheap I'm interested. Shame their site is down, looks like I'll order tomorrow. I take it the free shipping is a temporary offer ... hope its there tomorrow...
#22
I have been trying for nearly 3 months now to get refund on faulty item which turned out to be fake, they told me it had been done weeks ago, this week told me I would have to wait another 2 weeks, then yesterday told me i wasn't getting it and woul dhave to have in goods!! Thank God I paid through paypay so i have opened a dispute for refund! They even asked me to convert the return postage from sterling into dollars - what sort of company does that?
AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!! :x

Just read their site is down, judging by the last few emails from them, it wouldn't surprise me if they are going bust! Why else would they continually lie to me about my refund and keep delaying it??

Nope, it's permanent.

When they are good, they are very good. When they are bad, they are awful.

Been waiting 7 weeks for my order. Have now put it to Paypal dispute. (I orignally posted a Paypal complaint - Deal Extreme's response...... "You can't have your goods unless you remove your dispute". Hmmm how about just sending out the godamn goods i've paid for and stop the blackmail!

always been good for me if slow (this to be expected and they actually give guide of delivery time so if expect under 2 weeks then you are deluded)

think this is common practise that companies dont deal with you if you have a dispute as then they just get hit twice. If you had contacted them about it previously then they failed to satisfy then by all means go via paypal but at that point you shouldn't keep badgering dx.
isn't there an admin fee for disputes btw?

dx - choose 4 random skus and post a deal of specific items.
Generally these are not brandeds so cant really compare to give a comparative heat.
Generic type items have varying quality so cant compare.

thats why imo dx deals are a bit pointless - if you want some cheap unbranded gadget - go to dx and almost without fail you will get the cheapest price.
Real deals from there are genuine products sold in other stores.

You can still use their site by going to this address...

See their reasoning...

I've never had a major problem with DX. Any faulty stuff i've received has been promptly replaced on their buck.

Anyone that is ordering should probably expect things to take longer than normal:

Dear valued customers,

The Chinese Lunar New Year is around the corner. In the greater Chinese regions this is seen as the most valuable time of the year -- just like Christmas in the West.

DX will be observing the holiday: customer support team will be temporarily unavailable between January 24th, 2009 to January 30th, 2009. Customer service will fully resume on January 31st, 2009.

Hong Kong Post and the Chinese Customs will also be temporarily closed during the holiday. Because of this, DX shipments will be temporarily paused between January 24th, 2009 to January 28th, 2009. DX warehouse and all shipments will resume on January 29th, 2009.

Live postal tracking information for orders shipped between and a few days before and after these dates will likely be processed and shown in the postal system until around January 31st, 2009.

To minimize the impact on customers, DX staffs will work with maximum efficiency processing shipments and CSE support tickets before and after the holiday.

Yours sincerely,

Tiffany

DealExtreme Customer Service Manager

Do mods really support this sort of 'Things are a pound in Poundland' type deals?

The vast majority of my orders were delivered in between 5-7 days.



How are they being hit twice? They have my money, they havent sent the goods out.





Not quite sure what point you didnt understand here. They have my money, They wont send the goods unless I remove the paypal complaint - so I raised it to a dispute. (This was after 30 days of waiting.) I've had no contact with them since - apart from the emails from Paypal, which they have similarly ignored.


delivery time was in general not to you - goods dont leave the country within 5 days generally so you have been lucky.

Maybe i have misunderstood what a paypal complaint is.
If they have your money but haven't sent the goods then if they send the goods your order is fulfilled.
If your complaint means paypal refunds your money and dx sends the item then you have the item for no money which is obviously wrong also.
hit twice, losing the item and losing the money.
hence - remove the complaint or you cant get the goods.
think the thing to do is to cancel the order and let paypal handle getting a refund as that way dx aren't obligated to send the item so its just a case of a refund rather than a refund followed by sending an order - hit twice.

If you ever don't receive your item from them due to it being lost in the post have fun getting a replacement or refund. It took me 3 months :x


Really?

I had one item arrived damaged. Sent them a picture and a replacement was sent out in 2 days.

I had another item go missing. Another was sen out in a a matter of days.

Weird eh.

Took me three weeks. Raised a service request thing via their website. They were fine about it, and quickly dispatched a new item. I have to say I have bought loads from them (20+ orders) and only one issue as mentioned. They are cheap and their gadget range is second to none! :thumbsup:

No, but you can get the boxed version - SKU 10289 - for same price and in stock. So not a problem really. And before anybody posts about 'fakes', these are genuine - I have had four recently. Great units they are too. :whistling:

I think it is because it is dealextreme.

I don't see why people would vote cold for that. I've been using DE for ages and I've never had a problem with them. Even when they sent me the wrong item a while back, once I let them know they shipped out the correct one straight away and didn't even want the wrong one back.

I buy something from them every week, def one of my fave online shops.

voted hot used dealextreme loads of times. i bought a dstt cart and memory card for my ds which work very well and cost around £12

I recently placed an order with Dealextreme, the goods turned up in decent time and were perfectly acceptable quality for the price, BUT i paid with paypal and since then i have received spoof phishing emails claiming to be from paypal on an almost daily basis.
It could be coincidence, but considering I frequently use paypal (and have done so for years) and have never received a single phishing email before, it is a bit dodgy in my eyes that all of a sudden i am being inundated with them.

I've use DE for ages, and I've never had a PayPal phishing email. Had a few over the last couple of months for random banks, but I think a lot of people get them these days.

To go from zero phishing emails for paypal to almost daily is a bit more than random, could be coincidence, but i am at best, sceptical about it.

I get the odd banking one too, but they are few and far between and usually target many different banks, not the same one every day.
