So if you buy something at a price on a advertised sale that they say they can not mark down any further then weeks later they put it on sale again at a lower price your ok with that?

Pretty much ok with it.

Look at it this way. Perhaps they got a better wholesale deal between then and now and decided to pass that along to the customer. I’m certainly ok w/that.

Seriously though…pick your battles. Lower prices is a GOOD thing! Positive feedback and sales ensure more of them in the future. If you don’t like their form of sales promotion, give them constructive feedback (FYI…bitching is not constructive) on how they can improve…or…don’t participate. Pretty simple, really.

Hopefully they will have more of these sales…I have cleaned up and it has enabled me to become a novice in flashlight collecting. Wait…maybe that’s a bad thing…looking at my thinned-out wallet, that is :bigsmile:

+1

And yeah.. Was almost happy the sky-ray king was out of stock. Sometime super low prices are just to tempting to say no too.
They made 5 (+?) customers very happy. And well, I saved myself 31,70$. Nothing to complain about.. Im almost happy I missed out on the deal.. lol..
Wallbuy had a promotion, and what did we learn. The common stuff, insanely good deals go out fast. Better check in on their page and promotions from time to time if they continue with that stuff and you want some great deals..

Our Spring Festival is coming, and in order to give a happy shopping experience to all customers, wallbuys will stop selling some goods for a few days, because these goods can not supply timely. This plan will start from 30th Jan to 18 th Feb 2013 (Hong Kong Time). And then you can get other goods smoothly, because this part of goods is available.
A part of goods in wallbuys will on sale, the discount up to 70% off, the Reservation Service will start from 7 th Feb 2013. Related service will provide in 2012-02-07 (Hong Kong Time)

From 21 Jan to 4th Feb 2013(Hong Kong Time), wallbuys will start a specially promotion. We just want to arrange inventory. And we promise that all goods in this promotion can be shipped very soon, and the discount up to 50% off. Promotion is over when all goods sold out.http://wallbuys.com/crazypromotions

This is kinda starts to smell “funny” to me, or should I say stink!
It looks like they are trying to sale as much they can and I suspect that some people will never see their goods.
Maybe in couple of weeks another “CRAZY” “BIG” sale will be promoted with even lower prices than this time!!!

The funniest thing is that always people are complaining about something, saying that its a scam or still to expensive and so on.
But what I can say: I got a whole bunch of things for half the price…and some other things for a very good price.
If you are a scary cat than don’t buy, but shut up flaming around for nothing.

This 3$ xtar18700 are very nice for my 13$ ZY-t13, I can charge them in my 10$ WP2 while I am playing with my 5$ floodlight. Party
Jealous?? :bigsmile:

Yeah, stop hogging those floodlights, leave some for me to buy! :bigsmile:

I actually waited this time to buy that floodlight, even at $8.40 it’s still cheapest anywhere. But there I was reading something else and realized it was 3minutes after midnight. And just my luck, the floodlight was all gone by then. 3 MINUTES!

Hope the Feb 7 sale will have that item again. Darn it, this is the third time I missed it.

Placed an order right after the sale started. PayPal charge was processed. Haven’t heard anything from Wallbuys about the order.. Is this normal? How long does it take to get an order confirmation? Can’t check order status without a number.
Thanks.

You won't see an email. You need to log into your account and look for "orders" and find the order number listed there. Then use "track order" link at upper right of page with the order # you just found.

Hi Garry, Thanks for your help. I checked my account but there is no order number listed. I think the problem is that I put the items in my cart and went right to “Pay with PayPal.” I wasn’t logged in to my Wallbuys account when I placed the order. I guess I’ll have to contact them to get my order number.

It’s an easy thing to do because 99.9% of the time when you place an order online, the seller requires you to either log in to your account or open a new account before you can check out.

Don't believe the tracking, all of my packages are still in HK yet one has already been delivered.

At this price they are still earning profit. Compare this price with taobao.com and you can see they are 20-30% higher.

I think they are positioning themselves as a low cost leader with little aftersales service

Did you go through the “check out” and then choose to pay by PayPal? If that’s the case, at least you should have received an email from PayPal. Does the PayPal email state you made a payment to Wallybuy? Does the PayPal email list the items you ordered? Is your email address with PayPal the same as the one in your account with Wallybuy?

Yes, I did get an email from PayPal listing the items that I ordered. I think you hit the nail on the head when you asked about my email address. I registered with Wallbuys using a different email address than my PayPal email address. That is why the order is not showing up at Wallbuys.
If Wallbuys required you to log into your account before paying for an order, than the order would be linked to your Wallbuy’s account regardless of how you pay. That’s how most online retailers work. The only reason this matters to me is because without having an order number I cannot check the status of my order.

I ordered the HL21 headlight, and got an email from Wallbuys with the order number. Later I noticed they also had the diffusers, so bought a couple of those too, and got another acknowledgment. I then emailed Cherry to ask if the two orders could be shipped together (seems a little wasteful shipping a $2.22 order), and got a reply this morning saying they would be. I’m a happy bunny …. again.

Oh, and I never did thank kronological for the heads up on this – good find, thank you.

I got a shipping notice too. I also ordered something from Fasttech yesterday, so it will be interesting to see what arrives first (my money is on Fasttech, although it hasn’t shipped yet).

TrustFire TR-3T6 was back in stock, so I grabbed one for $24,36. There’s one left.

Now let’s hope they don’t mark it with a higher value than I payed (tax-free import limit here is €22 or about $29).

Don't believe the tracking, all of my packages are still in HK yet one has already been delivered. 

So  basically, the tracking number is useless?  Then I fail to see the point in even sending it with one.  I mean, after all, that IS what a tracking number is for, right?

I do hope that is the case with mine.  According to my tracking, it left HK 11 days ago and has not been updated since.  I ordered on Dec 25th, and if it doesn't show up by Friday, it will officially be the longest I have waited for any packages from China.

My lights here and here

You are welcome.

I actually got the info from another member that posted the sale on another WallBuys thread…can’t remember which member it was. Thought it deserved it’s own thread for those that have tuned out the WB threads because of the endless WB bashing.

Order placed! Previous Wallbuys orders have all arrived, yes one of three was a little slow, but arrived in good shape.

Soapbox mode on: |(

Why is it some folks are never satisfied with a good deal, they always want more? I suspect if Wallbuys sent a courier to bring their goods to their front door, cooked them dinner and cleaned their house they would still be complaining. Wallbuys delivers good prices while having to deal with domestic and foreign customs and mail systems.
