To what end? All they seem to be able to do lately is **** people off (going by the JB thread :lol:). Traffic £, Sales = £.

I like play.com. Never had any problems with them in the 3 odd years I've bought from them.

Been ok to me for all the times i brought from them. Im sure with there usual low prices they not tempting people in with a misprice. Just recieved my carnival games for wii for £9.99. Games with prices like that will keep people happy

Play.com are one of the most reliable online retailers that I have purchased from. Apart from their great prices and free delivery, their customer service is second to none.

Only the other day I bought the Sony Erricson headphones and they sent me the wrong ones, when I phoned up, the Customer Service advisor was very pleasant, gave me a returns number and they sent me out the correct order along with refunding me the postage costs for the returned item. No arguments, no quibble, just honest 1st class service.

Which is more than I can say for some online retailers, I ordered a Wii Fit from GamingExtreme.co.uk back in MAY and i still havent received it. They refuse to give me a refund so I reported them to Trading Standards who are now progressing legal proceedings against the company. Now that is a shoddy online retailer, but def not Play.com.

definately agree with you on that. i think there customer service is great and there prices are good.

I think with the 1,000 and 1,000 of items they sell there is bound to be a mistake or three!
I have never had any problems with them at all.

Good prices on CSI at the mo... even on Pre-Order :thumbsup:

I have never had any issues with play.com. They are a well established site now that most people seem to trust. Its sites like this that keep Amazon and HMV honest.

I dont think play.com is the only site mis pricing. I have seen other misprice topics on here recently. The trouble is sometimes its hard to know a misprice from a real price.
