Is this a genuine deal? It sounds too good to be true (Wowcher)

12 replies
Found 3rd Oct 2016
I was thinking of buying these as Christmas presents, but I just can't believe that they are giving watches (minimum value £200 - over £1000) away for just £20 each. Is there a scam/ catch to this?
Thank you

Deal here: wowcher.co.uk/nat…rue

Many thanks.

they 'include' those top brands - so 99.99999% of the stock is probably from the pound shop.

wonder how distance selling works here and you can just send it back if it's naff?

Read the t&cs chances of getting any of the named brands is next to none.

the watch you will probably get is a Jacob Ekland watch which sell for around £10-£20 on ebay and other outlets so unless you want to take the chance and get only one of each of the expensive watches being given I suggest you try the lottery better chance of winning

My guess is that the specific Jacob Ekland watches available are an ultra cheap budget line of sorts. This is less of a deal and more of a paid for lottery ticket, hoping you draw one of the Tag Heuer watches.

Thanks everyone, think I will just steer clear.

Thanks for your help

I received the Jacob Ekland watches for him and her for a wowcher deal. -absolutely hideous but retailing for £249 on watch supermarket and then as little as £30 on eBay!!! I feel like I've been duped !!! thewatchsupermarket.com/men…e17

You can send them back for a refund, as long as you received them less than 14 days ago. Make sure you do this via recorded delivery so.

I ordered the watch deal off Wowcher. It's a complete scam. Jacob ekland does not exist, the site has been invented by shopify in the us. With the intention of making the watches look like they are worth something. I have sent them back nothing but cheap ****. The company they say supplies them is called the watch supermarket.com which itself is a scam company that sells nothing but fakes. I have reported wowcher to everyone I felt appropriate. The deal I did had over 4000 people buy it. That's a lot of money wowcher are scamming off people. Avoid all of these saving sites they are all rip offs that just give you cheap ****. I have emailed wowcher everything I've found but they are refusing to answer, surprise surprise. Anything branded on these sites is fake do not buy. Hope this had helped someone else not get mugged off

If you read the T&C's you would of found all of this out before you purchased them

Yeah I wouldn't bother - I got a crappy watch you wouldn't spend £1 on!

Plus I don't deal with Wowcher anymore as their customer service is appalling - I received a faulty good and they refused to refund me, had to go through paypal in the end. Groupon are much better.
