Free C8 flashlight with $10 order from aurabuy (beware they are not honoring this for some people)

http://www.aurabuy.com/give-back-130830/?utm_source=edm&utm_medium=siqi&...

PLEASE READ SOME OF THE COMMENTS BELOW BEFORE ORDERING CONTACT THEM TO MAKE SURE THEY HONOR IT FOR YOU

I bought the trustfire mini for $12.95 and they confirmed after I sent the e-mail and ask them to confirm that I will be getting the C8 for free with the shipment.

http://www.aurabuy.com/trustfire-mini-01-cree-xm-l-t6-3-mode-280-lumen-l...

So I got a trustfire mini and a C8 for a total of $12.95 not too bad a deal.

This was from an e-mail sent to me as a return customer. So if you haven’t ordered from them yet I don’t know if it will work for sure so you might want to e-mail them and ask.

It’s worth a shot anyway.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

You have to pick something you want and contact MIA she is around here someplace. She will send you a code good for the specific item. Kevin used to do it for me and it was usually around 10%. Not sure if they will let you combine promotions though. But hey you never get nothing unless you ask for it right?

I was about to post that I havent found anything interesting there so I wont order from them and now this!

What sucks is that I mailed their CS and said that Ive already ordered from them ONCE and they said that no problems, they will give the return customer gift!

Now, what do you call that?!

Id say that it stinks!

Wow I’ll edit the top of this page. Thanks for the reports. What a bunch of twits. Why would they do something to tick off customers over a few bucks like that? A return customer is a return customer.

To be fair, they sent an email to a particular group of customers. I’m guessing if it applied to all shoppers then it would have been advertised on their front page.

True and that is why I suggested that people contact them first. Still I don’t know how it will help their business turning some customers away. I happen to like Aurabuy they don’t generally have the best prices but they have given me a few really good deals.

I ordered (my first order) and emailed, they said they sent it. Since the link makes no mentioned of limitations, they need to honor it. If not PayPal will be returning my money to me

I have ordered from Aurabuy about 4 times in the past. This is how their “Special Gift” promo email looked like:

Sincerely Give Back to Our Customers with Special Gifts
You may choose any one you want for free

Dear XXXXXX,
Thanks for your visit since the operation of Aurabuy. Without your support, Aurauby wouldn’t have grown so fast.
To give back to our customers, we are holding an activity to reward our loyal customers. Any order over $10 will get a free gift. After successful checkout, please kindly send your order# and SKU of the gift you’ve chosen to cs@aurabuy.com. Gift will be delivered with your order accordingly. Offer is valid before Sep. 10, 2013.
We appreciate your continuous support and will try our best to provide more unbeatable items for you as always. Look forward to your coming back.

To be fair it surely looks like an “invitational’ thing so it’s for repeat buyers.

Yes but to be fair also, it does not specifically state it was for any specific group, nor does it specifically state any restrictions. The foul up is on their end. I don’t know about china, but us law will see it as i do. The right thing to do is honor all orders and word it better next time. Let’s see if this company is worth my time to order from again

Well, I guess the promo is only for those who received an email from Aurabuy. Mine was personalized, with my name after the main heading. I would surmise this is just a foul-up in communications. In my experience with buying from them, Aurabuy is one of the better on-line vendors now.

Cheap C8 is always hit or miss. They’re mass produced from multiple suppliers. The two I bought from Aurabuys before were quite good, driven around 2.8A and forgets the memory after 30s. Definitely worth the $8 they were sold at. This is the exact sku but I dare not say these will be the same ones…

The problem with Aurabuy here is that I asked them if I will get free gift for my 2nd order and they said that yes, I will!

Me:

Quote:
Hi!

I recently bought from you two Jacob A60 flashlights, I didnt log it and paid with Paypal, order number:
#xxxxxxx

Will I get this “spend 10$, get gift with your order” promotion too if I log into my Aurabuy account and order?

Thank you for your answer!

Aurabuy:

Dear Vēer:
Welcome to aurabuy.com.Thank your for your support.

Yes,if you place the order again and the amount is more than $10,you can get the gift.

Warm tip:please don’t forget to tell us which gift do you like,after you place the order.

More questions,please let us know.

Thank you.

So, even tho it might be misunderstanding, its still problem of their CS not aknowledging the fact that people will take this as normal sale without any limitations!
Neither their CS nor their web page provided me with any information regarding any sorts of limitations other than 10$ purchase minimum!

Luckily, I didnt order from them now.

Hey guys,

I thought i need to make something clear here.

From Auguest, AuraBuy will have one special email reward for our regular customers who purchased no less than twice till email-sending day.

So it is not for customers who has not received our reward email. Maybe some regular customer has been missed because our email had went to your spam box. You may check it now.

If you guys have some doubt about it, please feel free to drop a PM to me. Then i will check if you are in our email list.
Anyone has purchased more than twice will receive this kind of email once each month from Auguest unless you unsubscribe it.

Have a nice day!

Kindest regards,
Mia from AuraBuy.com

Aurabuys sent an E-mail that if I made a $20 purchase I’d get to choose an item off the ‘free’ list. I’ll pass.
