Just got in and read the threads on this - what a load of horse poo! Some of you people have no idea..... companies collect data, this is how they make money by offering LOSS LEADERS! They than send you deals in future at full price.

But just to advise a bit more - this company does not use Paypal - it uses a fully integrated MID (Merchant ID with Streamline, thats NAT WEST) Not every Tom, Dick or Harold can get these - you have to have a credit rating and also put up security to avoid it being a scam - ever known a bank take a risk? As to the other doubting Thomas', suggest you just get on with your lives moaning about everything else....

Im going to spend my Comet and HMV vouchers now.... forgot, I can't cos they went BUST! But I bet you trusted them! (fools). I bet you also trust the banks as well, they really are SCAMMERS!!!

I am fed up with this countries small mindedness, obviously whoever is behind this company has put time, effort and a lot of money (you think this website was available on Mr Site??) - why - just to scam you for 2.99 ?? Dream on......

Rant over - I hope mine along with everyone else's items turn up very soon and lets all then get back on here and tell out good stories (or NOT if thats the case). I doubt if anyone will then say, "Hey, thats a good company - they gave us a deal, lets give them a bit of praise. As for the person who said they would eat their hat, lets hope is not too big!

I hope you are all wrong and the 3.99 I paid to this site is worthwhile.... If NOT - trust me, I will be on here giving them the biggest slating ever!

And I'm a new bee because I sometime follow this site - but have never posted !!! were not all sat in the house watching Jeremy Kyle on the dole!

Rant over! - Got to go to work....

Fingers crossed we get what we ordered. Then again, I think people were skeptical about another site, Social Discount Network, when they first launched a few months ago and gave away thousands of shamballa bracelets for free, just pay the shipping. They all turned up and they are a great site - bought quite a few things from them since.

Not all, I had to open a paypal dispute with SDN to get my money redunded. One turned up but despite promises that it was on its way the second order never appeared but I think it was a minority and by all accounts they are getting better.

I had ordered 5 of them and they all arrived, but one was the wrong colour. After two requests for a replacement which never came, I asked for a refund and they did the refund right away. I'm guessing the colour was out of stock, but why they just couldn't say....everything else from them has been fab though, no problems. Hope this new jewellery one comes through though.

I received my item this morning - am pleased with it - it is very pretty and blingy BUT there is no way it is worth the 69.99 price they quoted - I've seen similar in claires style shops for around the 10-12 price.Saying that I paid 6.00 so am still happy but don't really like being duped.

Received mine today as well. I'm a horrible judge of jewlery value, but this one looks more expenive than the 5.99 I paid for it and can easily see it being sold for the original price (I went for a very simple yet elegant design, that always seems to be the most expensive wherever I look). Well pleased!

Another thing I thought of this morning - the set I bought was supposed to have a RRP of 69.95 yet despite paying 6.00 post, was sent in a jiffy bag, would have gone though as LL so next to no post, no invoice/paperwork inside and just a return address for a dropshipper in Cardiff (not you was it CardiffBoy?) - bearing in mind some of the items were meant to be worth in excess of 100.00 - why was everything just sent normal non-trackable post when the 6.00 easily covered recorded at least?

My orders arrived today - very pleased with them! The crystals are very clear and sparkle like crazy - under the bathroom spotlights it is like WOW and even in daylight they have a lovely shimmer to them.

Yes, the packaging was very simple, but I'm sure they would say that is to keep the costs down and why they could offer this promotion.

I was tempted to make an order today, but I dislike entering my card details unless a trusted retailer that I use regularly. It is probably just me, but would feel better if I could just use Paypal to complete the transaction, as it states that it is accepted, but wants card details.

I have used Paypal for recent orders for Shamballa type bracelets with another company I've not used before, and prefer it that way. Gutted as some of the pieces look nice.
Always be yourself!

Well I got mine - have to say I didn't think it was going to be *that* bad lol I'll be attempting a refund and if not, it'll just be a learning thing. I ordered a ring, and honestly I could hit and kill someone with it its so big, huge even, seriously chavy - and one of the stones is missing.
