Mods, you might want to delete this thread then since there's an identical one in the link above.

Avoid! I ordered a 12+1 from him when over 3800 shown in stock. 24 hrs passed, no code. Went live chat with the guy he said he had no stock but expected them in the next day. Next day, still no code. Stated he didn't know when he would get some in. Still showing as over 3800 in stock though! Complained to him, politely, as had been waiting over 48 hrs by then, and told him it was illegal to show stock that he didn't have. Said I was rude and that he only did it as a hobby!!! Did get my money back though.

Well i wouldn't say avoid. I've used this guy and so have many other people and this is the first complaint I've heard for him. I'm not saying you're wrong to not be happy with what he did but in fairness it does seem to be a one-off. I'd advise anyone wanting to use this site to contact him first to make sure he has them in stock.

I'm planning to use this site when I get my Paypal money, thanks for the feedback.

I just feel there are others doing it for similar prices. His attitude really sucked when I contacted him and I had to do all the chasing. If he had said fair enough, my fault then ok. But he said I was rude and that 'customers like yourselves make selling these really not worth it' Er hello! You stated over 3800 in stock and delivered within 24hrs 99% of the time! Maybe its me being harsh but if he didn't have the stock when I ordered, I would expect an email telling me this and an estimated due date. Not to be told two days later that I am rude because when I see something as in stock, I expect him to actually have the stock! Oh well, a word of warning if nothing else for those thinking of buying.

can't argue with you when you talk about saying they're in stock when they're not. Thing is theough, he really will be just a guy selling things on and not a proper company with customer service skills. He doesn't need to be polite when he's having an off day so it's hard to complain. Still, maybe he is rude all of the time, i've never spoken to him before. Who knows?!

All im saying is that you're right, he sounds like he was being a bit of an (expletive) but you can't beat those prices and he's usually quite good from what i've read. So, maybe don't avoid his website, just don't expect great politeness if something goes wrong. :thumbsup:

Just had a chat with Ian on the site - he is out of stock for a few days unfortunately. No 3 month or 12/13 month codes left.
Was very polite though!
#16
True, he can be a **** from time to time
#17
His stock levels for the cards seem to be complete and utter fantasy. He went from 3818 to 0 in stock in a matter of hours. However, to his credit he is now showing that he is out of stock but this should have happened when he actually did run out of stock. Fair play to the guy though and like I say, he did give me my money back. However, his attitude when I complained did stink so I think I will avoid from now on. He made out that he was doing me a favour selling me the code!!!

Hello all,

Ian from buygamingcodes here.

Just want to clarify a few things.

Bluesntwos. I agree, we did get off on the wrong note. However, it was an incredibly busy period - and with my having supply problems, the last thing I wanted was somebody dictating to me what I can and can't do - what's illegal, etc.

As you know, I buy my stock in on a daily basis, and usually buy in to match the order quantity coming in. This ties up with the 24 hour time period I allow before I send all codes out, due to the phenomenally high number of fraudulent paypal transactions (that usually get reversed within 5 hours or so). Instant delivery simply isn't an option, as I'd be certain to be out of pocket.

Because of this - it's virtually impossible for me to state a fixed amount of stock I have. What's more - I don't want to be updating my website every day with the amount of stock I have in - because if I oversell, I can simply buy some more in the same day. Not a problem at all.

But in the period you made your purchase - supply was short due to the festive period (and before hand I was unaware that this would be a problem). Hence, after a few days, I put my stocks set to zero.

Obviously, as already stated, I'm not a business, I don't hire people to work for me, nor do I have a customer service team, etc. So everything I need to do myself, along with my studies, etc. So really, the last thing I want is people emailing me and complaining saying what I'm doing regarding stock levels is illegal - to me it just seemed plain rude. So I issued you with a refund right away. All you really needed to do was email me and ask how long the code was going to be, if you didn't want to wait - ask for a refund, if you did want to wait - then that would have been cool to.

Anyway, I hope we can put that behind us, and you're welcome to come back if you wish.

Regarding the names - yea, it confuses a few people ;) Many of you may know I used to sell on eBay, under matt.baker.wm. I "took over" selling codes from Matt Baker who started on eBay, and then moved onto my website to cut out the extortionate eBay fees. Everyone knew the seller as Matt Baker - so I took the name to my website as well, so people would know it was the same seller. But I cut back vastly selling on eBay due to fees and Digital delivery policy, and concentrated much more on my website. As I'm doing it on my own now, thought I'd change to my name - Ian Batten.

I still sell a few on eBay, but will always use "matt" on eBay - to go with the username. Feel free to contact me on eBay to confirm it’s the account I trade under.

But yea, Matt doesn't do XBL anymore, it's just me, myself, and I :)

Anyway, despite the goings on between me and Bluesntwos – I’m actually a nice enough guy, believe it or not. Always up for a chat on MSN if you use it.

I hope that’s cleared a few things up for you guys.

Happy gaming!

Regards,
Ian

They were busy with there website updates and now they are back with new web interface with even better price. The most attarctive thing is they have introduced reward voucher points as cash for any purchase which you can use it for your next purchase.
I bough some codes from them and habve had no problem at all and sem like they are the cheapest.

The buygamingcodes website took money for a 13month xbox live subscription code, last Wednesday (01/06). I got confirmation emails from both Hipay and BGC to say that payment had been accepted. It was taken from a credit card not a paypal account, so there was no clearing period to wait. They confirmed that they had the money just 20 minutes after purchase.

5 DAYS LATER..... nothing. Nada. Not one reply to the several emails sent via their own website and tweets sent to their twitter account. And no code.

I hate companies like this.
