I wonder if Flubit would knock 12% off and then cancel as soon as the price goes up again?

I agree, I got it for £75 off flubit and they cancelled my order.

These Samsung SSD prices bounce up and down better than a kangaroo on a pogo stick.

Here's hoping they stay down this time.....but they probably won't !

Do we really need another deal for this every time it fluctuates by a few pennies? It's tedious in the extreme. Voted cold out of boredom.

Same here, flubit is not worth the risk now if you really need something.

I wonder if Flubit would knock 12% off and then cancel as soon as the price goes up again?

I had the desktop kit on order at 11% off, it currently has the status "Your order has now been confirmed with the supplier, and your estimated delivery date has been updated to the most accurate information available." Not yet shipped so could still be cancelled.

Annoyingly I got a Flubit of 12% off when GTA 5 was £20 on Amazon price matching a Game offer, it got cancelled as 'out of stock', I tried again and got the same merchant, it got cancelled again for the same reason then the price went up, it hasn't been down to £20 since so I learnt the hard way that Flubit can sometimes be a very bad idea.

The only orders I've placed with flubit were both cancelled. I won't be wasting my time again with it.

Use this.I still only got 6% & could not be bothered trying over & over to get 12% only to have it canceled again,so rejected & gave up.

This is not the kit that came with the cables and box etc that the last one was for £84.99. This is the basic one that was posted for £79.99 last week which I bought. So has actually gone up. Unless iv completly got this wrong but looks like (as in the title) the basis one. I.e no cables, CDs, shiney manual.
#14
Checked my order and it wasn't 79.99 I had a mare but this is the exact same one as posted last week so not the version with cables. Still cheapest it's ever been but the version with cables at 84.99 was significantly better value as you still (case depending) need to buy the adapter (unless bodged) wait for the kit to be same price again

I had my Flubit order cancelled, hence post #1 above.

TBH my Flubit experience hasn't been that great - ordered 3 items, the last (this SSD) was cancelled "because the item has run out of stock". I ordered the first 2 items at the same time at the end of May and the first item was delivered at work ok, but the second was addressed to Bertie Stephens, Fireworks Merchant Ltd's CEO! I only found out after submitting a claim on Flubit for non-delivery. Tracked through the Proof of Delivery, asked around the office and the package was sitting under a colleague's desk as the addressee was Bertie Stephens, obviously an unknown person. Flubit's excuse was "From time to time some suppliers will add the billing name onto the parcel in error. Sorry for any inconvenience caused".

Also, it may be just a co-incidence, but straight after that purchase my credit card company sent me a new card due to "suspicious activities".

Not sure I will order from Flubit again....

It seems that another source of revenue for Flubit is to hold onto your cancelled order money for the small amount of time that they had it. This is called The Flow/”Liquidity” of Credit. After all, this is what “Fixed Costs”/Laissez-Faire (couldn’t be bothered beecuz le iZist, iZat und iZer iOther is more interesting) Employess are for. To be able to expediently say “Sorry” on behalf of le boss (and ain’t he a cutie !) so that his infintising may proceed Full Steam Ahead. Ahoy thar, Sailor Bouy ! Yes, had 2 cancellations thus far on This & That. No doubt no.3, or The Other, won’t be that far off.

Used Flubit for the first time after seeing it mentioned so much here. They sent me a different drive to the one I ordered. Having sent them a refund request, I and am still waiting for a reply after 48 hrs! So got an unwanted SSD sitting here and money out my account

In the interim, I foolishly ordered and paid for a different SSD (this Samsung 250GB), but they cancelled it the next day.

I called them yesterday about the refund and return address for the the first drive and the lady said she'd look into it and call me back 'in ten minutes'. Still waiting for that call.

I find the customer reps quite cold and standoffish in their attitude. In hindsight, that stupid woman's recorded voice, sounding like a baddy in a James Bond film, wasn't an auspicious sign.

With the imminent release of the 850 series, I don't think these will jump up too much in price.

For those that want to get a new SSD (and aren't afraid to spend a bit more than this - obviously the more money conscience will be better off with the 840 EVO, which is still a superb SSD), you might want to wait for the 850's. They're using new flash with is ultra reliable, so reliable that Samsung have enough confidence it to ship them with a 10 year warranty. It's no slouch either!

Good post. Interesting that the 120GB 850 doesn't fall behind the 250GB model performance-wise, as happens with the Evo's. I'm going to start saving up for it and don't mind waiting a few months for a small price drop. The Evo's will probably drop a bit more with the 850's released too.

Just noticed flubit offered me 12% on this one..
#21
I ordered 2 x the 250Gb 840 EVO desktop kit was 84.99 last weekend (6 July). On previous post last weekend someone did mention the 1-2 months dispatch time but said don't worry it's unlikely to be that long... still waiting for my order to be dispatched and current estimate is between 23 July and 16 August. Really hoping it won't actually be that long!!

Just tried whacking the URL into Flubit;

"We are very sorry, we will not be able to create you an offer for this item at this time"

Phew - my wallet was starting to sweat anyway!

Thanks. Used this link, got 6% off (same as the last cancelled order) and got cancelled again. Does anyone know which seller on Amazon is affiliated with Flubit's Fireworks Merchant? I want to avoid them as I don't feel like giving them money after going through this.
