Cheap Dealz

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesIncreidby poor cutomer service, non-delivery of items and no refunds

"I am writing this as a warning to any prospective customer. Since placing my order for a Sony car stereo with Cheap Dealz, I have encountered many problems, which I have detailed below. My order was processed within a couple of days and I received a confirmation email. I paid for Express Delivery from Parcel Force, and when the item wasn't delivered within the promised time, I contacted Cheap Dealz to find out what was happening. None of the emails ..." Read review

My best experience so far

AdvantagesFast shipment, Reliable products, Vast product selections

DisadvantagesShipment tracking

"I have been shopping online happily at Cheap Dealz UK for about two years now. The majority of my order from Cheap Dealz UK is computer hardware parts and electronics related products. Therefore, my review of Cheap Dealz UK will be based on this category alone. Product Selection Cheap Dealz UK carries extensive digital cameras, portable audio products, home appliances, and related electronics equipment. At their web site, you can order media ..."

Purchase from Sweden, quick delivery

AdvantagesExcellent value, quick fedex delivery

DisadvantagesCostly extended warranty

"My recent experience in buying a Canon G6 digital camera from Cheap Dealz UK was excellent. Their price was competitive, and while their ratings on some of the web sites that collect ratings were not as high as other resellers, a closer look at problems reported looked very much like they were rare and at times even a matter of "customer ignorance". Since, I am presently in Sweden, I have asked for a Fedex 2 day delivery. The shipping charge ..." Read review

I recommend it

AdvantagesNo hassles, no pressure. Quick delivery

DisadvantagesDelivery costs

"...low. However, my experience with cheapdealz.co.uk was wonderful. I ordered my camera on 11/22/04 in the evening and received a confirmation email almost immediately. The next morning I received an email with a Federal Express tracking number which would become effective as of 10pm (the email was a bit confusing, but I could track my package with no problem at around 9:45pm that evening). DELIVERY My camera was delivered to my home on 11/25/04. ..." Read review

Are they a scam website?

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesYou pay for a product, but don't receive it or any communication

"On 15th January I ordered a camera. The website looks good, and offers security. Shipment, it says, is within two days "no exceptions". It says you will receive an email detailing your tracking code or the order will be cancelled if not in stock. I have received nothing. I have sent four emails, which they guarantee to answer within 24 hours. Nothing has been received back. I have tried phoning an 0800 number - which I believe redirects you ..." Read review

Good source for car stereo systems

AdvantagesPrices, Reliable, Warranty

DisadvantagesShipment delays

"I've been ordering car audio components from Cheap Dealz UK for few months now and I have always been satisfied. The installation kit and wiring harnesses that they throw in with the purchase of a head unit and/or speakers make installation a piece of cake. I could get the same equipment cheaper at various online etailers but I know exactly what to expect from this store so I keep going back. The installation instructions that are included at no charge ..." Read review

Cheapdealz UK are US based and sell US spec goods

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesdishonest dealers

"My son bought a Sony Incar stereo from Cheapdealz UK, his first Internet purchase. It took around 2 weeks to arrive and the parcel had an American postmark. He had it fitted professionally to his car but it was evident that it was not working correctly as it refused to tune in to all wavelengths. He Emailed Cheapdealz who told him that there was an adjuster on the back of the set to enable European reception. He had it checked out and no such adjuster ..." Read review

Advantagesvery low prices, very curteous customer service

Disadvantageslimited selection of products

I received the item within 3 days. 1 day processing, 2 days delivery via Parcel Force. I got a tracking # within 24 hours, was able to schedule the delivery through www.parcelforce.com. ..."

Cheap Dealz UK

AdvantagesFast delivery, good prices

DisadvantagesSupply from the US, use false customs declarations

"When I made an order from this website, I assumed they would deliver from within the UK but in fact my order arrived from the US. A false customs declaration was made on the parcel to attempt to avoid customs duty, for which the buyer is responsible. Customs & Excise intercepted the parcel and asked me to make a declaration of what was in the package or return it. I decided to ask them to return it to the sender rather than pay the hefty customs ..." Read review

Advantagesvery low prices, good customer support

Disadvantagesslow delivery of goods, poor choice of shipping company

"Quite simply, if you want to buy a mp3 player for yourself from the local town centre your being 'ripped off'. So the only place to go is online. Cheap Dealz offers one of the best chioces, with the following: easy to navigate site, with good search engine competitive prices, monthly discounted items, 'web low' prices and clearance sales free uk delivery on Apple products. Secure site If your still not convinced, I had a look in PC ..." Read review

Not worth the hassle

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesNonexistant customer support

"Bought a Sony car stereo, ordering was fine. When I checked the tracking number I was given, the package orginated from the US. I knew that US radios didn't work fully in Europe so I sent them a email making sure that the radio was built for European market. No reply. Tried ringing customer support line and all I got was answering machine. A little over a week later package arrived. I checked the customs sticker and the information was wrong and ..." Read review

BEWARE

AdvantagesLooks cheap (too good to be true!)

DisadvantagesIs not a bona fide UK company. They are using fabricated details, modified from those of a real, legitimate and ethical public company to appear to be credible.

"...the nature of this operation. Cheapdealz.co.uk are using an adapted and slightly altered version of Capitek's details (a highly reputable and honest public company that trades Internationally), to pass themselves off as a bona fide UK company. There is no such company as cheapdealz.co.uk Ltd on the UK Companies House system. They are falsely and fraudulently using the London address of Capitek plc without their consent and are in no way whatsover ..." Read review

DO NOT TRADE WITH THIS COMPANY

AdvantagesABSOLUTELY NONE

DisadvantagesTAKE MONEY: DON'T DELIVER, DON'T REFUND

"Found through Ciao, though they no longer link to chepdealz.co.uk for this product. My credit card was debited very quickly, the following day I found worringly that order was already marked as "Completed". Money was taken in America, not UK. No information was provided re delivery dates or carrier. Found that they NEVER answer their phone nor return answerphone messages. Again these are routed to the USA. Did get two responses to my many ..." Read review

Cheapdealz Scams

AdvantagesNONE

DisadvantagesEverything

"This company advertises as Cheapdealz.co.uk and does offer products at low prices with a fast delivery. When ordering online you enter your credit card details and pay for Royal Mail Shipping, however this is where the fun starts! The product is actually shipped from the United States and takes weeks to arrive. All calls to their UK phone number, an answerphone, are ignored and when i finally received the item it was not new but a reconditioned unit. There ..." Read review
