Signet Card value £1000: Bought it for £850 on Ebay

Found 27th Oct 2010
Hi Guys

I am looking to buy a ring form Ernest jones/H samuel for my wife on our wedding anniversary.

The only I could think of getting a discount is through buying a signet card on ebay for a bit less value and then using that card in store or online if can to get the quidco cash back.

Could anyone help me please I am just worried would it be safe to buy a signet card on ebay where seller has received it due to incurance claim.
If it is safe and buy it would I be able to use it on Ernest Jones/Leslie Davies website so I can get quidco cash back which is 14%& 12.5% respectively.
I would appreciate any comments. Thanks

What's the item number? Is it a reputable seller?

He has got over 200 feedback score and only asking for paypal payment. Wouldn't it be covered by paypal buyer protection and as i will be using my credit card to pay on paypal that will give extra cover in case anything is wrong.
Your not covered by the Buyer Protection as its a gift card: pages.ebay.co.uk/hel…tml.

Thank you for your reply. Checked the ebay and paypal buyer protection and they don't cover gift cards. I am not sure to complete the transaction or just leave it.

Check if they have been selling anything else with a high value, if its all low value items & buying I'd avoid just incase as its alot of money.

The seller has been registered with ebay since 2002. I have asked him to send me his address and landline telephone number.
I am surprised how people are buying signet cards on ebay. Do they know its not covered under ebay buyer protection. I mean there is one card for sale with the value of over 4K on it and bidders have bid upto £3200. Its a lot to risk.
Probs not what your looking for but if its for diamonds why not just go direct, hubby bought my diamond online from isreal, sent them a pic of the setting i want and they made it for me, cost half the price of the uk, we had it within a week of ordering, had it valued back home and its worth a good deal more than we paid
You would be better off going to somewhere like the Jewellery qtr in birmingham and haggling, Thats where I went for the engagement ring, and platinum wedding bands. Apprantly I will need to go again for an eternity ring at some point.
