dealextreme boycott RANT !!

ok, it goes like this...Dealextreme has some good products for cheap,with
free shipping. (oh great, i think to myself)
they are in korea.
i have ordered a few things from them,and EVERY time the items arrived broken.
on Jan first i ordered a REPLACEMENT KLOM tubular pick,
as the first one came with half the fingers broken off.
ok, so i track the parcel...two weeks go by,and the pick gets returned to sender by Hong Kong Post.
this back and forth between DX and HKP went on until the middle of MARCH when i found a better site,and decided i wanted my money back.
after filling out form after form,feeling completely ignored and sluffed off, i keep trying...
it is now April third,and FINALLY i got a response:
Dear sir,

Apologies for our late reply.

After checking the tracking number, The item (XXXXXXXXXXX) was returned to sender on 2-Feb-2009. If you want a refund of the order, we will deduct $5 for the postage. The total refund will be $$17.48.
Thanks for your understanding.

The KLOM pick was 32.47 and they want ME to pay the postage for an item that never left HK?!?
so i respond:
i dont understand. i paid 32.47 USD for a KLOM tubular pick. SKU 16413.
(i have a copy of the Paypal invoice.)
why do i have to pay postage for your mistake?
why should i pay 5.00 postage for a product i never recieved,and IN FACT never left your country?
please explain.

I think this place is best avoided,and i personally am boycotting them...
i will update the post when/IF i get a response...
thanks for reading.

Re: dealextreme boycott RANT !!

I'm getting a little nervous now, I too ordered the klom tubular pick, and the hook pick set that was 6 bucks. I thought this site might be too good to be true, I'll let you know when I get my order and how it turns out. wish me luck! :|

Re: dealextreme boycott RANT !!

Cheep Chineese.

I will say, everything I got from them isn't that great. My favorite is the butterfly knife. However...

I got the Sha-Lon set from them. Most of the picks were fine, but some were really bent. I was ok with that for it being so cheep. Then, the cheep cigarette shaped lighter broke, and now the lock on my butterfly knife broke.

When it comes down to it, DealExtreme has cheep prices... because they are cheeply made. Now I will say, I can't beat the price I got my Sha-Lon picks for, but it would have been nice if my stuff didn't come bent and manhandled and broke the same day. :(

As a note. Anything that costs more than $6 from DX isn't worth buying unless you're really willing to risk your $6. :P

Did you mean 27.48? or did deal extreme want to stiff you for 15$. Either way its ridiculous that they actually are charging you for something that the hk post keeps sending back to them. I still havent got my deal extreme tubular pick, or sha lon picks, I hope they come intact.

Re: dealextreme boycott RANT !!

I don't make a habit of advertising for any particular supplier (without recompense), but I am very satisfied with all the products I have received from UK Bumpkeys. The prices are fair, and they stand behind their products. I was very nervous with my first order, because it was the first time I ever ordered from a web site, AND from overseas. The first package arrived one week later; the rest is history.

Re: dealextreme boycott RANT !!

Hmm. I ordered the 6 disc ford Tibbe pick from them, and added a 7pin tubular pick in as I need another one, and it was cheap.

If everyone is having these problems, where is another place to buy a good 6disc Tibbe pick?

well, hopefully our bad experiences can help others avoid them altogether .
sux to be us.
they will lose a lot of biz from this community,but i am sure they couldn't care less.
we are just a source of money to them,nothing else.
no actual concern for the customer,
very poor communications between customer and seller,
customer relations are virtually non-existent .
if you do get lucky enough to get a response to your repeated querys as to where is my order,
or my tool arrived smashed to pieces,or just plain
"i didn't receive anything please refund my money",they will try to rip you off right through that
process .
they are doing it to me as i type.
they are a huge multi-million dollar company,
and they don't give a rat's ass about anything but getting money from your pocket to theirs .
they have proven that.
i will chalk it up as a learning experience.

Re: dealextreme boycott RANT !!

here is my progress after FOUR MONTHS!

i write:

please refund my money...mt parcel has been returned to you by Hong Kong post THREE times.
Why is this?
i have grown tired of waiting,and would just like my money back.
please refund my payment for the KLOM tubular lock pick.
i have been waiting since JANUARY it is now almost APRIL.

they respond:
Dear sir,

Apologies for our late reply.

After checking the tracking number, The item (********) was returned to sender on 2-Feb-2009. If you want a refund of the order, we will deduct $5 for the postage. The total refund will be $$17.48.

Thanks for your understanding.

Nicole
at this point i am like WTF? i paid 30 bux,so i respond:
i dont understand. i paid 32.47 USD for a KLOM tubular pick. SKU 16413.
(i have a copy of the Paypal invoice.)
why do i have to pay postage for your mistake?
why should i pay 5.00 postage for a product i never recieved,and IN FACT never left your country?
please explain.

them:

We have checked the tracking number for you. Please confirm the details below.

2009/01/23 13:39 International item has left Canada
2009/01/22 AM XXXXXXXX, BC Item on hold at postal facility to verify address of recipient
2009/01/22 09:40 XXXXX, BC Item out for delivery
2009/01/19 17:07 MISSISSAUGA, ON International item arrived in Canada and will be reviewed by Customs

Thanks a lot.

Nicole
by this point i am pissed off! i respond:
Ok, i am happy with you charging me 5 dollars shipping
BUT, South Korea KLOM LocksTool, SKU 16413 is
32.47.
32.47 minus 5.00 = 27.47 NOT 17.48
PLEASE REFUND 27 DOLLARS FORTY-EIGHT CENTS UNITED STATES CURRENCY.
three months is just way too long to wait for a product.
plus, i am getting charged for shipping on an item i have not received .
please understand my frustration.
thank you,
AWOL70
now,FOUR MONTHS LATER:
Dear awol70,

We will refund $27.48 to your account. The refunds will issued to you within 1 to 15 working days (Mon-Fri, excluding public holidays in Hong Kong).
You will receive a confirmation e-mail directly from PayPal when it has arrived at your account.

Thanks for your patience,

Nicole
it has been 15 days today and i have received nothing.
and they have the balls to ask me to rate my level of satisfaction???
ARRRGGHHH!!!! i wanna go postal!
