This online shopping site, Deal Extreme, has captured my heart. They give you FREE delivery for any products that you purchase from their site. I was a bit skeptical at first, I mean, FREE delivery and there isn’t even a minimum charge? So I decided to buy an $9 item from them, put my delivery address, and pay them using my PayPal….
|So I thought, oh well, if they are a scam, I’ll consider that 9 bucks as a give-away, or throwing away your luck thing. Guess what. In about 12 days, the item was delivered! (they promise a roughly 10-14 days of delivery).Why they can give you FREE delivery, I’m not sure. Why their items are so cheap, well most of them are HongKong or China products, so that’s why they cheap. There are a lot of discussions about this site though in whirlpool.net forum, so they are not a scam site. I’ve purchased a bunch of items from them afterwards, and they fail to disappoint me yet.|
Some people said to receive a broken product due to bad packaging or just a manufacturer faulty. They informed DealExtreme, and they are replaced (they don’t even bother to ask for the item to be returned!)
Some great items in the site are:
- 64 Mb memory for PlayStation 2 for $10.86
- 1 Gb MicroSD for $27.18
- A small but powerful flashlight for $27.18
- 35-in-1 USB 2.0 Card Reader for $8.90
- Battery Chargers
- Other stuffs (they really sell a bunch of cool, useful, weird stuffs)
I bought that cheap PS2 memory card (which is sold in a city shop for $35 bucks for an 8 mb – what a rip-off!) and have been using it in my PS2 until now with no problems at all. I expected a slow read/write, faulty, etc but hey, it doesn’t have any difference at all with the Sony that I got from the PS2!
