I found out about Halfcost via the Money Saving Expert website. The company is part of Studio 24 - a discount company that post catalogues through people's door - and Halfcost sells Studio's excess stock at discount prices.

AdvantagesGood clear site and cheap!!

DisadvantagesNot the latest gear.

"Halfcost is an Internet shop I happened upon while looking for cheap bargain basement sites, to buy cheap and resell on E-Bay for profit! Concept: The site does what it says on the tin, selling clearance items at bargain basement prices, a wide choice is easy navagable on this well laid out site. What does it sell?

Not such a great Halfcost experience.

AdvantagesBargain prices and easy to use website.

DisadvantagesNo customer service contact number. Slow to respond and even slower to collect returns

"Like many others I too was lured to Halfcost with the promise of great items at vastly reduced prices. Using the website was a breeze and I chose to buy a Demi-Lune wooden TV unit listed a quarter of the RRP. The chosen item was a graded unit and the website stated that it may have the odd blemish or minor mark on the surface.

Quick review of halfcost.co.uk

"Used them many times and never disappointed!!! I have had odd queries with them from time-to-time but they've always managed to sort them out. Their difficult to get hold of on the phones at times, but if so they usually call back to help you. Sometimes a response can take a couple of days though. As long as you've got a little patience and are looking for some GREAT BARGAINS this site is a great place to shop! Watch them pennies!

Quick review of halfcost.co.uk

"refund experience is awful. if their delivery firm loses an order, you have to ring halfcost, they send you a form and then send it back for them to review and decide if they want to refund you. AVOID this 'company'. rip-off merchants. They even told me the sale of goods act doesnt apply to them and basically to get lost! NEVER AGAIN!
