is this site legit ??

post #1 of 14

I've been looking for a closed portable can and was searching for a low price on the ES7 and found this site:

http://www.gainsaver.com/bNetStore/T...&Param10=34484

If it's a legit site I just might buy one and sell it for twice the price


I want a closed can but from what i've been reading \, no one is really bragging about them, so they don't seem GREAT... so i might just cop for the cheaper SJ5's

Here is what the local BBB has to say Link
and it looks like Gain Saver might be running another business which has not answered 13 complaints Link

Do not buy from them!
google gave me:

Looks extremely sketchy, no communication or customer service, and even if you do actually get the product, i doubt they would give you any return policy, and since AT is japanese, you could run into major problems if you tried to use a warranty. Also, reports of damaged products being recieved.

Yeah I would steer clear of that site:

well that is based on the company not responding to the customers complaints/refunds/ext..

I've read that Alessandro is the same way (not responding to emails/phone calls.


All I care about is if I will receive the product (and in good shape).


EDIT: well thanks for the replys. I will keep on searching.

also thanks for those links, I didn't know about them before, so now I can quickly do my own research on company's w/o crapping these forums

Don't buy from them. I went through so much BS with them it wasn't even funny. I highly suggest you just stay away!

EDIT: Ordered an item that said in stock. Was actually out of stock. Got charged. Never received item. I had to deal with my CC company to get this fixed!

It seems they mislead people into thinking they are buying new gear, when it is used and often damaged. It also seems to take ridiculously long to ship.

According to that mac forum, the address they give is the reported address of 100+ other companies, even though it is a somewhat small building according to google maps.
It all seems sketchy at best.

I would pay the extra ~$30 and buy from audiocubes, a dealer known to be reputable.

They have some awfully attractive prices though.

i had this same problem with my nike dunks.

I'll just end up the sj5's from audiocubes (i'm not paying more than $100 for a portable can with the risk of getting mugged or something)

Type in google:

gainsaver.com is a scam

And see what it comes up with. Apparently it's a fraud based on above posts.
