  • Wally
    What a Crock The box has now been removed - without excuse or explanation!! Maybe All those Buckscoopers who wasted time ought send an email saying it is shoddy
  • Keeys
    ok I emailed ;)
    I loged in at lunch time today because you had advertised on the front page a lunch time deal. A special offer between 12.30-1.30. I waited the entire hour refreshing every 5mins or so and then just before 1.30 the add was removed but no product was added. I'm not happy to have waisted 1hr of my time waiting for something that didn't happen. Nothing like a bit of faulse publisity to get people to your website!
    Will let you know when/if i hear back...I agree others should email to let them know you were waiting and not happy at your time being wasted.

    Wasted 1 hour of my life is Catch of the Day today It kept time out all the way. So frustrating. Time out every step from bite me to check out to verify pay pal Almost got the item, time up at the last minute after confirm pay pal and final confirm button in COTD. After that my checkout is no longer valid, I can't add item or pay for the item. What a waste of time and energy

    Frustrating isn't it. When you think about it, how much do you value your time ($20 per hour? $30 $40 $50.....) Now add $1 onto this figure, your bag of Catch of Day crap then starts to cost you big bickies!

    http://bestsmileys.com/welcome/3.gif to Buckscoop Beejean I missed this all together :D Love it these days when I login and there is all this going on Not very good of DD at all really. I suspect that someone ot a big wrap on the knuckles for that one. Keeys, would be great to see the reply you get :)

    did anyone get the COTD tshirt? I logged on and wasted time and it kept stuffing up. Not happy! I did however receive my two boxes of bratz stuff. They were supposed to have 20 pieces per box. I am 5 short. Too many were earrings - about 40% Not good when they are dealing with lil girls. Not all lil girls have poierced ears and they ship 40 -45% pireced earrings. The rest of the stuff was good, but not happy to be shorted.

    I think with the earrings thats just a risk you take - it is a clearance site and as u say earrings are less likely to sell well for little girls so more likely to be included. Re being short, just email or phone them and I'm sure they'll sort it out :) This happened to someone with another offer and COTD prompty sent out the stuff.

    Me either. COTD site when it finally let me in was like frozen treacle and took close to 50 mins to extract all my details only to finally be told that my purchase of 1 was above the number of available shirts - I tried 2 sizes to no avail. They should know how to load balance their site :rolleyes:

    i got the bratz pack too, but i was actually pretty happy with mine. i got alot of pretty necklaces & braclets for when we have my girls 3rd bday party. i got all 20 pieces and only one necklace was in there twice. i must have been lucky. we could always do a trade?! lol...

  • trevorf
    This a daily thing? cos I see the same advert up again on their site today. Unless they're attempting to make up for yesterday?
  • MamaK
    interesting- wonder if its going to be another waste of time?
  • hellwolf
    Todays 12:30 to 1:30 deal is a 'Wireless Headphones with Microphone and FM Radio - EUROLAB' for $9.95. RRP is $69.95.
  • Brad
    Thanks for the info Hellwolf, at least they offered something this time around. :D
  • nod
    They offered something but it is still Eurolab :(
  • trevorf
    Since that lil section is still there, I kinda get the impression that they're gonna continue this on a daily basis ... similar to COTD I suppose.
  • nod
    Not very original but the marketing must work as COTD are still around
  • Keeys
    they need to learn to reply to email...I've heard nothing from them!!

    That is no good. Customer service not a priority then maybe?

    Maybe each pair of earrings counted as two pieces? ;-) Anyhow, I got one of the t-shirts. Turned up today - a sepia/pale yellow with "KYOTO" on the front. Looks like a "seconds" job with some damage around the edges. Frankly, probably worth maybe $5 if that. The "gadget" turned out to be a battery powered set of scissors. Very low quality. All up, good value for $1 delivered - but I wouldn't be too upset if you missed out, other than wasting your time on the web site. The $1 for the bangles etc the day before was better value - mostly chunky ugly stuff, but my two little girls will love it for dress-ups.

    Kind of confirms what I was thinking about the tshirt - they just needed to offload stuff I think

    Its interesting to see people's experience with customer service at these diff companies. I have nothing but praise for DD, all my orders have gone through very quickly and if any problems i have been told ASAP, even received a gift when one of my deliveries didnt show up ( even though AP's fault not theirs ) . Lots of people have high praise for COTD/ DD yet 3 out of my last 4 orders have had major problems, and all customer service keeps ignoring my problems.
  • Keeys
    Still no reply to my email :(
  • admin EDITOR
    I had to laugh - I was trying to track down a contact number for anyone at DD the other day... nada - zip - nothing. There was an old number for the parent company but it wasnt working anymore. They really arent keen to be found so doesnt surprise me that you guys have trouble getting emails back.
  • Sammyau
    we ordered three things from dd in our last order. set of pots, trolley and wipes. they sent a chocolate fountain instead of pots and then told us off for it. trolley broke on first use and wipes never showed. after lots of toos and fro's i've come to the belief that customer services is certainly not there priority they havent even answered the last lot of emails. annoys me that they have some great deals. principle of it tells me not to buy from them again.
  • nod

    How did they got those two things messed up?
    trolley broke on first use
    Have they replaced it Sammyau? Customer service is just as important as the deals. If something goes wrong then you want to be able to get it sorted.
  • lindanat
