I'd say dont buy this due to the owner being the big man up at the sportsdirect.com @ St. James Park Stadium, but its all going in his back pocket anyway ;)
#8

#9

#10

#11
great, thanks

Not that it affects all items in this promotion due to their cost and the previous threshold for free delivery being £60 but a few days ago they announced this deal:

Ryder Cup Specials

Being able to buy a Cleveland or Nike wedge for £50 delivered is a bargain and one that their most competitive competitor Direct Golf can't get close to (£22 more expensive). When I contacted them I was told to bite their hand off as they couldn't understand why they were selling some of their gear so cheap.

I bought the TaylorMade Superfast Rescue club for £70, a saving of 30% from the next cheapest and cheaper than a second hand one on eBay.

Only worth it if it's free to return all the sweatshop made, incorrectly sized, shop-soiled, shoddy rubbish you'll receive too. ;)

Seriously though, there must be a garish SportsWhateverDotCom shop on every highstreet, why wouldn't anyone who isn't housebound just go in while you're out shopping and see what you're getting rather than ordering it off the internet and hoping for the best? At least you'd have half a chance of getting the right size/colour/item (and have a (semi-)human face to vent your anger at when it falls to bits a week later and you get refused a refund).

Heaaat

Just a word of warning, every time I find a bargain from this place I usually get an email within 48 hours saying 'cancelled due to being out of stock' yet when I immediately check their website I see the items still listed on there!!!!! Bit fishy!!! Just to attract a sale, hoping you buy other items too I feel.

Customer service is non existant!!

I have ordered 1 particular item from them on at least 5 different occasions only for it to be cancelled. I swear they put attractively discounted goods on there just to entice you to shop, add a couple of other goods, then they always cancel the decent item you were actually wanting and send you out the other crap!!!!

Although I did test this last week on a set of golf clubs, reduced from £399 to £25 (!!) had them in a larger order of £150, of course I got the cancellation email a day later and the rest of the junk I didn't really need turned up, battered, not protected in the box either. Then I noticed the golf clubs where still on the website, so I placed them in basket to order again without any other fillers, paid the postage cost and they got cancelled aswell. Can't win either way!!!


Beware when ordering skiwear, skateboards or rollerblades. They come completely bashed to pieces, with bits of the manufacturers box missing or shredded to bits, sometimes even without the manufacturers box and it's normal for the items to come without any labels on them (appearing to be second hand returns!) and when I complained they said I have to pay to return them myself, even though the goods are not as described!! Which would have cost me £11 at the post office..........ONE BIG CON.

I've learnt my lesson the hard way now and swerving them from now on. Like someone said earlier, if you have a local shop just go in so at least you can check out the condition, it is definitely a lucky dip as to whether you will receive your goods when ordering online and whether they will be the items you actually ordered (yet you still have to pay return postage in this scenario) and even when they do get it right the items are completely bashed up...!!

Rant over!
#23
Damn ordered some £5 trainers yesterday grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hot tho!
#24
not sure now after the reviews, think i willgive a miss
thanks anyway for post
#25
No offence intended to the original poster, but I will never buy with this company again after the accusations (in front of other customers) that the store manager made to me when I took back a top, having not noticed it had a defective stain on it until I got him home.

He first accused me of wearing it "because he could smell it", then accused me of staining the shirt myself and trying to take it back under false pretences, and refused to give a refund.

You couldn't force me to go in their store again after that experience.
#26
run by that fat geordie **** but this deal is good for someone who wants to order cheap sports goods
#27
Why are there so many idiots on this forum?

I work at Sports Direct, I'm not arguing how good or bad the company is because at the end of the day it doesn't matter, does it?

This deal gives you a saving of £3.95(?) and is therefore hot, no matter which company it's for.

Thanx. My nearest store is 15 miles away. So no there's not one on every high street and I'm not housebound. Oh and I dont live in the middle of nowhere

and im sure returns would be free.

How sure are you about this? Of course it matters how good or bad the company is you fool!!!!! That's all that matters, surely?!!! Yes, £3.95 saved, but not if you're going to have to return the goods via courier or recorded/special delivery @ £7!!!

If it's free delivery somewhere with a good reputation then that's obviously going to be more popular than somewhere with a bad reputation that doesn't deliver!!! I'd much rather save £3.95 from a reputable company who I know will deliver the goods I have ordered, as described at time of purchase, in the knowledge I can return them should they not match the description, free of charge, as you are being sold something that isn't in essence, it's false advertising. You sir, are the idiot, but you never know...one day you may make it to the top of this wonderful store, keep up the hard work!

I believe the reviews speak for themselves.

returns are not free, even in the case of when their staff mess up a shirt printing order...by spelling Gerrard with one 'R', even though it was there right in front of them on my order!!! It arrived, I complained, and was told it was store policy and that I had to pay to return goods, I requested to take the shirt instore to get a refund and they said they would only offer me store credit or exchange!!! Even when they completely messup and send you the wrong goods they have no idea of how to keep a customer coming back for more!!!

Ridiculous company.

You are getting free delivery from a place that doesn't usually do free delivery. Plenty of people on this forum use the website and are saving money through this deal - therefore it is hot. I've used the website myself twice for football boots and have had no problems and I'm sure there are many other people who have had no problems. You can return items in-store now too.

Thanks for calling me an idiot though, my part-time job really has an impact on my common sense and the like and I'll keep my idiocy in mind when I'm back at University on Monday.

had no issues yet, first order was lacking one item which they sent out again with free p&p, no hassle or fuss. Took advantage of the free p&p to get a cpl more bits too.

Again, how sure are you about this? They said no to me just 3 weeks ago about returning an online order to my local store....despite their own stupidity leading to 2 incorrect items showing up and a custom made order (football shirt) having the wrong name printed on the back, despite having my order request spelled out for them (still showing in my order as proof), and despite being one of Englands better known footballers, which you'd think was easy enough to check the spelling of....they didn't even care that it was a birthday present for my nephew, and therefore time sensitive - so I didn't want to be waiting around to send the item back (at my own cost) before they sent a replacement matching what I had originally ordered....they wouldn't have any of it, just said it was in their terms and conditions not to give refunds in-store, only exchanges and that all returns are to be paid by customer, despite it being their own error.

I quote from their website returns T&C's: "Unfortunately unwanted online orders cannot be returned back to our stores for a refund but can be returned to our stores for an exchange providing that they are unused and you have the packaging and any tags still attached."

Even if you're happy to settle for an exchange, you'll still have to strike lucky to find the same item in-store on a day you decide to visit, otherwise you're being forced to exchange for goods in-store that you don't necessarily desire.

You're welcome for the idiot remark...as that's exactly what you come across as. Did you not previously refer to everyone on here who left a comment about their poor experiences (which I'm sure is of public interest), who use this site, 'idiots', yourself? I believe you did.

It's not a hot offer unless the person voting believes it's a hot offer, that's the idea of this website, to gauge a balanced view of who thinks it's hot and who doesn't, and any personal insights as to why people may vote cold can only be a help, surely?

Also, you are not entirely correct in stating the company 'does not ever offer free postage, therefore it is a hot deal'.... Although they do not advertise it on their website, or send emails out to the mailing list each time, there is quite often free delivery codes, aswell as 10% off codes floating around which obviously if you spend more than £40 you would be getting the same deal anyway. Also, it is always free delivery for orders over £60 anyway, so add that to a 10% off code and you're getting free delivery AND £6 off which beats this.

Pity the fool...

Sports direct is excellent. My Jewish friends reccomended it to me, and as the old jokes would have you believe Jewish people know a good deal, and they were right. The bad thing is though that every time me and my dad go to the Manchester fort branch we end up with a load more jumpers, coats, boots, t shirts, jogging bottoms and its filling up the house with things that we could live without.

But youve got to love places like this and primark that have created a world where there is no excuse for kids to have worn out clothes or shoes too small. Yes all this stuff is made in India, China, South America etc and the people dont get much, long hours and often no health care. But that is sadly the way of the world (and it was that way here, but far worse, 110 years ago), and unless you can afford handmade European clothes then you havent got a choice.

For some reason middle class people seem to think that if you buy from topman or debenhams then its from a different source, even allot of designer stuff like Armani is made under the same conditions. Infact all your iPods and electronics are also made this way you cant win to be honest.

I've never had a problem with this company and sometimes a I get a free massive mug. Great prices on fitness/sportswear. Just bought a pair of sandals for my trip to Thailand.

I never said you could get a refund in-store.

Also, mistakes happen, fair enough it's a stupid mistake and the policy is pathetic but it is company policy to not give refunds in-store for online orders, therefore nothing can be done by the staff in-store so it doesn't matter how much they care about your birthday present for your nephew.

I disagree, this is the same as voting an Xbox 360 deal cold and saying "PS3 is better, 360's always get red ring." By all means warn people about your experiences but it's temperature shouldn't be affected.

I didn't say "does not ever offer free postage", if you look again it says "doesn't usually do free delivery". Therefore I am correct because most of the time delivery is not free (unless the order is over £60 like you said) and from my experience in-store and from reading comments on deals like these there are a hell of a lot of people who do not spend £60 online at Sports Direct because it is primarily a budget sports shop.
