In the last month or so id got to hear about Price-drop.tv . How addicting can this channel get? Well if youíre addicted to Ebay then donít watch this channel. You have been warned. The only reason I had to go have a look at this shopping shop was because a friend told me that they were selling a bike. The guide price was £299 and it MEGA dropped to a £1. How fantastic is that. Well I was hooked before id even looked at this home shopping channel. In the first hour id bought a 5 piece pan set, with a 3 tier steamer for £28, the guide price was £100. Since then ive come to buy a few other items.
They sell all kinds of things like Watches, toys for the kids, bikes, blokes tools, Jewellery, household items, clothes, music CDís, DVDís plus many more. Something for everyone!
price-drop.tv is on 17 hours a day seven days a week between 8.00am and 1.00am
You do have to be over 18 to use this home shopping channel
Okay so this is how it works. A item will come up, you will see a guide price of the item, quantity they are selling and the price drop price it is at. You will have a number to ring at the top of the screen, you obviously dial the number and all you do is press 1 to confirm your item purchase. Calls cost £1. Also each price-drop will have a different phone number. That is all you have to do, if youíre a first time buyer they will ring you back and then you go though your payment details and address. If you have bought before you can enter your pin number, that means you donít get anyone ringing you back as they know who you are, and also you get your name scrolling at the bottom of the screen. So once you have done the ringing part, the maximum you will pay is what you came in at. The price keeps dropping until all the quantity is sold. Once the last one sells the price drop locks and EVERYONE pays the lowest price at what it locked at.
If you were the first 5 to ring, you will be entered for there £500 prize draw, which is every Saturday at 10pm
You have hosts that will demonstrate all items and they normally have assistants with them that show you what items look like if it needs it.
At the moment there doing a Mega drop month, where anything might drop to just £1. There are a few Mega drops in the day, but so yet havenít been able to be fast enough on the phone. If anyone has any tips on how to get into the mega drops for £1 then im all ears.
They except all credit and debit cards, delivery they say takes up to 7 working days, but all mine have been delivered within 4 days. The postage and packing varies on what you are buying and I do think it is over priced on the P&P. The minimum ive seen it at is £6.95. Jewellery is normally £7.95 and bikes are £15.95 but like I say it depends on what you are buying.
If once you have received the item and your arenít happy with it, you can send it back within 7 days, ive never had to do this, but you have to ring them for a code to authorize it to be sent back.
The things I like about the channel is that it has a various selection of thing to buy, and the prices do drop to that I would call a reasonable price to pay. They get delivered to your door. The items ive received so far have been excellent, we bought the pan set as I mentioned, playstation games, sunglasses, and im awaiting a watch.
There are a few things I do dislike the hosts can be annoying, and there music they constantly play gets on my nerves a bit. The postage costs are a little high I think. But apart from that it can be very addictive.
So what you waiting for get yourself a bargin and go check out price-drop.tv. 636 skydigital, 856 ntl:home and 875 Telewest Broadband
They have a website www.price-drop.tv With there website you can register and bid online too or put in a max-i-price which means you can enter a price you are willing to pay before the item has come up, so if your arenít around at that time you get entered for the item purchase if the price drop, drops low enough to your max-i-price. (Hopefully ive made sense there)
Thank you for reading my review. Havenít wrote a review for a while :O(
I've got this on Freeview and it must be my least watched channel.
