Online Shopping : deals and discussion thread

Recommended Posts

Big thumbs up for Flipkart. Excellent prices, decent delivery times, reliable and their customer service/response time is nothing short of brilliant!

 

Just got the Witcher book today. Ordered it 10 days or so ago. Import copy that actually cost me less than its listed price on Amazon. Love those guys. Hope they never get bought out by anyone.

Yea and 20North is good i guess but expensive.

ebay is pretty good for buyers thou they try and f**k up the sellers sometime ..

as i said they are good as long all is going fine..since if they were not good or if i never had a good opinion,i wouldnt have done 204 deals at that site....but once they screw up,then its big time...

Air tickets - Travelocity.co.in has the best rates usually, followed by goibibo.com. Goibibo works out a few bucks cheaper if you have coupons. For return tickets, its usually better to book from the airline sites as they have better rates for return flights. Am talking about domestic flights here.

Flipkart delivers always, Neva had any issues with those guys, had ordered a dvd from these guys, thing was not packed well, i sent an email just stating that the condition wasnt good ( it had gotten smudged at the edge of the box ), as a response to that, they sent a new copy, this time via bluedart express, no long replacement procedures, fast shipping god bless the Flipkart team

OP updated with Obaid bhai & Maddy's suggestions.

 

You can also add a post about your worst experience(s) in an online trade so that people may refrain buying from those sites.

 

And adding to the general flow, Flipkart is damn excellent ! And so is Zoomin ! 2 sites I go in & out 20 times a day :|

 

:cheers:

You can add infibeam.com also to the list.. Lots of books and good discount there.. I have bought many books there.. They are very reliable..

They are a bit shady though as they have a lot of grey market/fake stuff without declaring them as such..

From what i have observed you can the best price from your local mobile shop. Flipkart was quoting 11800 for the samsung galaxy 3. I managed to get it for 11500 after bargaining with the local guy plus a scratch gaurd free.. lol

thanx bro :good:

+1.

Plus I had a rubbish experience with them. Had ordered GOW3 LE guide as Flipkart wasn't carrying it at that time and the delivery showed 21 to 30 days delivery time. With lots of email and generic responses, got it roughly 50 days after placing the order. Never ever had this kinda problem with Flipkart. If FK says delivery time is within 21-30 days, I get it within 21 99% of the times.

 

anyone ordered mobiles from Flipkart??? the prices, are they competitive from the ones offered at retailers??? any idea?

I still feel local market is the way to go for stuff like electronics, mobiles & computer items.

 

Univercell.in best place to get mobiles from.

Try getting out of the house for a change :P
