A lot of hot deals have just appeared on the front page from this company and was wondering if anyone has had any previous experiences with them --- GOOD or BAD?

Yeah, I'm tempted to buy nhl 08 for £11, but I'm a bit weary of the site.

Ah, type saints row in search, it's the first and only result.

Possibly because the game was cancelled for the ps3, but you can still appear to buy it...

I wish I saw the three threads before ordering Lost Odyssey and Gears :-(

I'll let you know what happens....
#11


Thanks for the info. Rep added. Still really want to buy nhl but don't think it's worth it now :x
#12
Thanks for those threads. There are a few happy people, but others finding that they cannot cancel orders, cannot get a response (recorded message) or reply to emails, can't get refunds. I think I'll pass on this one, but hope it works out for those who have ordered. I was a bit put off by the fact that they seem to sell bits of all sorts. Let us know how you all get on.

Sent an email to cancel the order . Games still hasn't been dispatched and they were quick at taking the money as Gaming Extreme were already showing on my online statement last night :x

Yep they've also taken money out of my account and no goods sent yet, stupidly I also ordered wii-fit so looks like i'm £80 out of pocket :-(

I tried ringing today and all you get is that stupid recorded message still so yep I believe the site is fake.
I'm normally carefulsewll when it comes to buying offline.

Anyone had any luck then?
#18
Hopefully someone does get some form of notification as it certainly will make me feel better :)
#19
I don't think they are fraudlent - look at the last deal they did, most people got it I think. I think they are just **** at Customer Service, and slow to ship.
#20
If they were out to con us, why would they change some popular games to 'out of stock'.

I hope/think this site is fine
#21
New look website launched!

"We've decided to change our name to [url]www.jalt.co.uk[/url] due to the hugh amonut of items we're now offering"

Any one's order changed to shipped?

I ordered tiger woods 08 on 360 on mon/tues, recieved confirmation order, check on their site - as we as still awaiting shipment, it appears they have ordered me the game twice , yes twice! the phone number is just a recorded wii fit voicemail everytime, so i emailed them asking to confirm i'll only recieve 1, how do we get to speak to personal advisors (not recorded message) & also how can we cancel, as it doesn't give you the option - there reply - you'll only get charged for how many conformation emails you recieve (i only got 1 conformation email) but nothing ele about anyother questions.....
#28
ps, no number for them on yell.com.......anyone live in the town they're in? any info greatly appreciated......
#29
think we have been scammed, looks like last weekend was a bit of a rubish one for me then, oh well, easy come, easy go :p

Mike..
#30
So has no-one received any games yet? Lets just hope they are slow to ship.
#31
Last time the only problems where understock issues and slow delivery, but i'm starting to see a smaller scale musthave100 all over again!

I sent an email via the website on Friday morning and got an automated reply, "Last Weekend promo: Gears of War, Lost Odyssey, Crackdown, Shadow Run, Project Sylpheed, Forza 2, 120gb Hard Drive, Shrek the 3rd are all being shipped Friday."

Still shows pending on the site for me.
#38
its now monday morning - anyone had any news? i've had a couple of emails but nothing to do with the item i've ordered. & item is still 'awaiting shipment' can we not shop these cowboys to any of the autorities like the police, (after all if it is all dodgy & they take our hard earned cash in return for no products we ordered) then its a criminal offence - surely?!
#39
Posties been and gone , no game :whistling:


I managed to get a charge back on my debit card so I've to phone Lloyds back on the 25th August and they'll be able to get the money back to me :)
#40
charge back for a debit card? how''s that work......? bit green to it!!

Emailed asking when tiger woods will be despatched, automated reply saying last weekends promo games have now been shipped, (sounds abit better i guess), lets hope its correct & they're all now on its merry way, from wherever they ship them from......although i still have concerns.
