Found 16th Sep 2017
An absolutely great deal on this micro SD, it is currently selling on Amazon for £128.99 so that's a £44 saving. The 64gb model is also on sale.
I've used GearBest in the past and it has come through if a little slow on delivery.

Seems hot to me.. but I've never ordered from geartbeast before.. Are they any good? Sadly their trusted reviews appear to be mixed.
As deals go this is a belter. Hot hot hot from me.
Any codes to bring the price down?
Not sure I'd buy memory cards from Gearbest, didn't they sell GPUs that were described as being one thing, but were really lesser-specced?

I knew it rung a bell somewhere, see here: hotukdeals.com/dea…281

and here: hotukdeals.com/dea…672

...and many others..though those are the two I remember.

So many fake cards about, buying direct from China seems foolish...
Gearbest are great. Customer service is spot on. I ordered 3 xiaomi cameras from them. One of them was faulty after video evidence of the fault they refunded the price of one of the cameras no quibble. I always pay postal insurance it's like a 1 something for piece of mind as my courier who delivers always chucks the parcel over the fence
Gearbest are best avoided or if you use them then ALWAYS use PayPal. My experience was beyond awful, I ordered a phone for £120 but when it arrived I noticed the seal on the phone was open and the phone itself was not inside. I took many pictures showing this and contacted gearbest support

You want to know what DISGUSTING response they got back to me with. oh sorry you are missing your phone, if you send us ANOTHER £90 we will ship another one to you or we will give you a partial refund of (brace yourselves).... TWENTY GREAT BRITISH POUNDS.. Absolutely disgusting, I had to open a claim on PayPal and even then I only got around a £100 refund.

I can share the exact messages if anyone wants proof.

That just sounds like you took the phone out of the box and then took some pictures. Shame on you for trying to ripoff Gearbest.
Obviously I don't know puddleuk's situation but it happened to an Amazon customer (think it was via Amazon Warehouse?) and the purchaser really had to jump through hoops. Think there was a happy resolution in the end but Amazon were very cynical apparently...but you can understand why. I think (as it was a UK purchase) the buyer had to get the police involved and submit a report.

That is what they sent me before I escalated on PayPal to force a refund.
Personally, I wouldn't chance buying this product from Gearbest as there are too many fake cards about. If you discover say 3 or 4 months down the line that this product is fake, will Gearbest offer you your money back plus you have to send it back to China at your expense.
Although their response wasnt great, you cannot blame entirely them for an "In-transit" theft. I used to work for a recovery firm, and I had to deal with a large number of lost/stolen parcels.

However, if the phone was sent in packaging where the contents were clearly visible, then you are right to blame Gearbest, as small items of value are always a prime target.

The vast majority of missing contents are down to thefts and not fraudulent buyer claims; for example, about 90% of cases involving GUS deliveries came down to thefts/negligence by GUS staff or drivers, up to and including senior managers.

This why GUS got rid of White Arrow, and started using 3rd party parcel delivery firms, so they could blame someone else.
I'm surprised puddleuk, I have contacted them twice and got a satisfactory resolution both times, I have ordered from them 15 times with issues, even ordered a mobile with no issues. I always pay the postal insurance from their site though
