Advantages Very low prices, easy to navigate, backed by a Major Company.
Disadvantages lack of items, usually around 50/60
Hold on, what's that I hear you say? Someone actually recommending a site just by it's name?
Well, if only that's all I was going to do!
Bargaincrazy is an internet only site for Great Universal Stores ltd. You know the Company, they own Choice, GUS, and Kays Catalogues, they are also the owners of Argos and, just lately Jungle.com. A company with masses of success in the home-order and on-line order departments.Don't expect to find a great deal of products on this site, as it is normally for end of line products, but what you can expect is savings of a minimum 40% up to 90%.
Let me guide you round the site, first of all, the home page is quite plain and siple, well laid out, with a few banners highlighting the products on sale, and the "Deal of the Day" right in your face.To the left of the home page is a navigation portal, very easy to use, and simple to navigate. You click the scroll bar, down to teh department you want and off you go, then you have a choice of teh area within that department. As I have said , don't expect a lot of choice, as products are limited, but the savings aren't.
My favourite part of the site is the "Price Plunge", where if you are a real bargain hunter, this is the place for you, especially if you like to take a chance. The concept of this area of the site is thrilling, all products here are listed, normally around 10/12 of different types of goods, from prams to deep fat fryers, from Alarm clocks to diamond rings, even better than the "Chap down the pub" :) They start of with a minimum of 40% off the rrp, and depending on action on the goods will drop a level every couple of days, do you hold your nerve? Do you buy at the price shown? This is where the nerve holds out, can you afford not to buy? Can you wait and see if it comes down lower? That is the thrill!I'd suggest looking at the number of items on sale at the price first, to see how many are on , before making that decision, as I found out to my cost :( You gauge when is th ebest time to buy!
Every item on the site gives you a full page photo and description of the product, the information is there, the price reductions are also contained here. It also gives a catalogue number, which I assume is the original number out of their family of catalogues.For the serious bargain hunter, this si a site I'd readily recommend. Easy to use, easy to view, and extremely easy to buy from. The response from teh Customer Services Dept after plaving your order is rapid, teh confirmation arrived about 10 hours later. The only downside is the £3.95 p/p charge, which, given the discount received, really isn't that bad.
All round it is a very good site and will be one worht keeping an eye on.
