All products sold through this web site are from China--where they make Audio-gd products.

 

The product seems to be the same as this, sold by another vendor for $13.09 on the site:

 

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Multifunction-5-in-1-HiFi-Wireless-Headphone-Earphone-Headset-Wireless-Monitor-FM-Radio-MP3-PC-TV/701137007.html

 

 

Hello, guys! I'm a new user, I'm from Ukraine and registered here especially to write post about this item. I don't speak English wery well, it's not my mother-language but I'll try)))

This is usually fraud from Ali Express sellers. Sellers from china very much like to cheat with their items. It's not ebay so everyone can add shop, when the other one is closed. One seller can have 20-100 shops on different links.

They count on mass orders. Explain. For example he has 50 shops. On every shop he has 50 deals like this, with such "magnetic" price, or "awesome deal". For ex. he sells 1 unit of each his shop with one cent. 50 shops*100 items = 5 usd|day(but really it's more because most buyers from Russia and Ukraine, like I and they don't know about this cheating too and counting for awesome deals with free delivery worldwide and don't think that here maybe something wrong. 

Seller sets, for example estimated delivery date for 60 days, for this 60 days he has 150 usd/per month and this is very good money for China and it's very good money from nothing. He nothing sells, nothing spends and just receive money after estimate delivery date lasts, because than dispute term is ended and money automatically gets to sellers. Just a few people will insure that their order is placed, shipped and will watch to dispute terms, but most of them thinks just"aah.....it's only 1 cent, it's OK." - but from this OK such trepans live. And even 50 of this people will open dispute he will have one-three weeks additional to make his offers and it's additional money or he can give back your 0.01 cent and make his offers more. So if dispute will be won he will be able to pay you one cent but other orders will have status "finished" and he'll receive his money) And even if his shop will be closed by Ali Express, he'll have 49 shops more))) 

So, you won't receive anything, even track number because delivery from china costs 2.32 usd with track number, so forget about this deal and go to order place and "cancel it" with a reason - wrong order. Seller must accept to return money =)

Hope I helped to someone. Have a nice days, friends!


Aliexpress has cancelled my order because the seller failed to ship.  They say that they will issue my refund ($0.03) in one to two weeks.  I'll be watching for it.

Yes, Friend, and he will have one more order in his reputation without reputation))) They do thiis specially. They love to do one more interisting thing for reputation:

For example he has 10 t-shirts with a price 15 dollars. He or his friend orders this t-shirts, for example, 10 t-shirts=10 orders, and then he changes price from 15 dollars to 1 cent, his friend pays all this order, seller gives him fake track-number, in a few days,3 of 4 after buyer can confrirm order - he confirms and gives him 5 start reputation. This trick do many sellers, so don't trust reputation, buy only from sellers with 1-3 diamonds reputation.

Yeah, one more thing that I forget to write. Discussion about money and credit cards. You'll receive your money, don't worry. Seller doesn't have you money. All money, until you haven't received your order and not confirmed it freezes ali express, so seller have nothing until time limit ends automatically or you confirm it yourself. So money will give Ali Express, not seller. Usually it's really about 1-2 weeks, but I, for example, bought there smartphone Zopo for 330 usd and seller promised to ship an item in 2 days. I waited 10 days and seller doesn't have this item in stock, so I've opened dispute and surely won it. I was very happy to get back my money but my happiness was to early.....Ali Express made a refund proceeding for 1.5 month. 1.5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! month, I wrote in support 5 times about my chargeback and they always told just "Wait, dear customer and you'll receive you money back". So don't be nervous, you'll receive your money 100 % back but the question is when?. Sometimes it sets from few hours, days and sometimes for weeks and month.

Now, few world about credit cards, this is confidencial information, so they only see order like this, this is my order history:

http://clip2net.com/s/6xF10b

Don't have permission for posting pictures but as you can see, the don't have any credit data. The only, they can see it's first and last name, and the can write PM to you and on email there will be spam)))

Are there any tricks to finding these Marshall's or TJ MAXX deals? The last time I checked the Marshall's by me, they had nothing good.

 

Do they restock on a certain day, or is it the luck of the draw on finding these?

post #2167 of 6360

Purely luck. I have 4 Marshalls in my 100sqmile radius. 

 

One had one IE800 tucked behind some ties (purely luck looking for a tie)

 

I'm checking another Marshall's today actually. Looking for BA200's.. if I manage another IE800.. I don't mind helping headfiers out.. just cover the cost to ship.

post #2168 of 6360

Too bad the nearest Marshall's for me is 2 hours away. My Ross and TJ Maxx don't ever get anything but generic IHome stuff. I spent like an hour at each sitting there looking through their electronics haha.

post #2169 of 6360
Looked, no luck at all.

Not really much of a deal considering they were $159 a week ago, although cheapest price right now.

post #2172 of 6360
Any chance of me calling Marshalls or Ross and them finding it for me over the phone. My car is out of commission as of last Tuesday.

I tried that and they told me, sir we do not do that over the phone. Please come in.
post #2174 of 6360
Thought they would pull something like that. I'll try to call and see if I have any luck.

Yup--yesterday's sale is of no help to those shopping today (except as a reference point).
