Good for you. I have also bought few products from them but the real test of after sales is when an exception occurs and they were woefully incompetent at resolving it. 

They were good when they started out ~2013-14. I know the owner personally and have met him many times but the situation has worsened over the years to the point where even the distributors and reputed sellers I know have had issues with headphonezone

Without naming anyone. Basically the normal when a person increases rapidly in stature and feels like he's the king of the world!

 

I know of a lot of retailers discontinuing good products because HPZ was the new distributor of those brands. Reduced margins, not entertaining good policies, not providing ample support and imposing excessive conditions of purchase of products etc.

I must be extremely lucky. Been dealing with Amazon since their inception here and I've received broken items, packages with the manufacturer seals broken, fake items, used items, empty boxes too. Most of this within the last 2-3 years iirc. I have yet to face an issue where CC has not arranged for a refund or replacement in the first try. No questions asked. At least as far as I remember.

 

Fartkart on the other hand. Just f**k 'em. Don't f**king buy anything from Fartkart. Just don't. When you open that app on your phone I urge you to slap yourself. Really hard. Really really hard. Then uninstall that sh*t. And if your phone won't allow you to, buy a new one. Not from FK fgs. Anywhere else.

 

But I recently bought a MacBook Air (M1) 13" from them. :mellow: It was delivered absolutely fine. I've maybe had a bad experience with either Flipkart or Amazon a total of 5-6 times, max. Mostly with low-value items. And the returns/refund process has been smooth, too!

I've been abusing the Audible free trial for well over a year now, but its my last month :( 

 

I keep hoping to get another 3/4 month free trial with Google Pay but my rewards have been sh*t recently. My current 3 month sub is also thanks to my friend. 

 

If anyone here gets an Audible code with GPay or otherwise - and doesn't plan on using it, please pass it on to me - would very much appreciate it :)

Received the xbox controller today, was a used piece( as in somebody's return? ) batteries were missing :lol: but there was a usbc cable inside the box, and controller itself was dusty.

Seller was Cloudtail.

I guess the earlier person returned it because there are some discolored green rings on the casing where the analog sticks go.

 

Have asked for a return and refund.

bc time waste, should have bought from GTS only.

Be happy. If it was Flipkart you may have only received discolored green rings.

Dangit, says code not valid. 

Maybe it's for only those who do not have pro plus already.

Shouldn't be the case.

 

Waited for Pro Plus to end, used the code from FK and it worked. Got 12 months Pro, then upgraded the same to Pro Plus for 500.

 

Jai Flipkart :D

I got for 300 too earlier, but that was 3 months.

Can someone clarify something for me? I recently ordered a book and 2 T-shirts from citadel9.com. They shipped the items from Spain via their local post so it arrives here via India Post. It reached already and it should be in my hands in about 2 or 3 days. Since I didn’t get any update regarding customs duty, I called the Foreign Post Office where it’s supposed to arrive today. I asked them how much the duty would be and they were like depending on what the Customs Dept feels like, either 0 or 77 percent.

 

 

what the hell? 77 percent customs for a book and T-shirts? Is that even legal?
