I have used Flubit a number of times & they have saved me not only money but also have taken out the hassle of the order process and if there are any problems they sort them out for you. I have no idea how they make money but will be using them many more times to help me to get deals I would not have otherwise been able to obtain.
Flubit is quite simple, find the best price for something on the internet, send them the link, they'll better it. They've been fine so far, the one time I had trouble with a delivery they quickly replied and provided me useful information.
Discovering Flubit quite some time ago through stumbleupon I thought it had to be bogus, but then having tested the water a couple of times to see what they can offer, they always came out cheaper. So I ordered something, then something else, then another thing. Now I almost only buy stuff online through them.
You have to wait a day or so for the offer to come back, then to get it delivered so it's not one for a quick rush buy, but not much really is. And I am happy to wait another couple of days to save some cash. Admittedly it's not always a great amount (my range so far has been 6 - 20%), but when I now look back on what I've saved since using them it's quite a chunk of money, nothing to be sniffed at. Once you've accepted the offer, delivery times are exactly what they would be anyway.
It's a no brainer. Just remember to get the very best out of it scour the internet first for the best possible deal before you submit it. And if it's only a couple of quid cheaper, well you were going to buy it anyway, why not save a couple of quid?
Only used twice so far but first offer was an 7% saving on a TV I was looking for, I rejected that particular offer as I was just testing the water. Second offer was a saving of £8.00 on a £100.00 WD My Book Live. Delivery was fast and came from the retailer who's online price they beat.
For all of those looking for massive discounts, look elsewhere, this is not what Flubit is about. However, savings can be good but if you're after something, even a 2% saving is a saving!
I would thoroughly recommend!
I've tried to use flubit a few times, and it just does not work well for me! First up, they've not been able to beat any price I've been quoted by anything significant - if at all. Then there is the time window - I can't always guarantee to be around when they open the "offer window" so they make an offer, but by the time I get to the computer it's expired.
Sorry I really have a very hard time understanding how all the positive reviews can be true when my own experience has been a 100% fail!
If you respond to them explaining the above, they ask you what browser you are using - they really do not seem to understand at all.
I made a demand on flubit.com a week ago. But the supplier sent the wrong item to Flubit instead of my home address. Dliek, the staff at Flubit was really helpful. She kept me update me by emails about the situation. She then returned the item back to the suplier. Stil there was no reponse from the supplier. Dilek then sent me the link from Amazon.co.uk to check if that was the item i was after. And she ordered it for me with express delivery!!! 10/10 for Flubit.com. Use it today and you will save a lot more than you think you could ;)
I have now ordered many products, I constantly look for the best price then give it to flubit, he manage to get even sale items 10-20% cheaper.
What I was concerned with was what if an item had issues. This is where flubit were stars, an electronic item was broken on delivery, flubit ordered a new item to be delivered, then asked for a receipt of postage costs for broken item reimbursing me within minutes of an email.
Amazon also could also not deliver new earphones for me on time, flubit said this was unacceptable and I had the item within 1 day.
They constantly check to see you are alright and happy, customer service is by far the best I have ever had to deal with, win win situations.
THANK YOU FLUBIT
A brilliant, efficient service from Flubit. I only discovered Flubit recently but have used them a number of times now and they were able to find lower prices for me when requested and if you're prepared to wait for upto 2 days for a price offer on a product then this is perfect. My shopping experience online will always include Flubit.
I still can't quite work out how they do it but every demand that I have out in they have come back with a better offer which I have not been able to match anywhere else. I have tried expensive things and things that were only a pounds to start with and still they seem to offer approx. 15% discount. Website is easy to use and the process is straightforward. The only thing I would say is that you have to have a little patience to wait for the offer and sometimes the delivery may take a day or two longer than usual but on the whole very happy and will certainly use again. I was very sceptical to begin with but I am converted to flubiting!
I stumbled upon this site by chance a few months ago and was sceptical at first. However, I have now used them for all my Christmas shopping and have saved so much time and money. The majority of items have arrived by courier from major retailers within a few days of payment. I have only had one item not arrive which was sent by Royal Mail and likely lost in the post. However, as payments are made by PayPal a refund was swiftly processed and the issue was down to the seller/Royal Mail and not Flubit (who chased the seller and ensured a refund was made asap).
I am now a complete Flubit addict and have recommended them to friends and family. I will never pay full price again !
Submit the best price you've found for something you want to buy, and Flubit will beat it. It is as simple as that! I've had better prices for a whole range of items including electronics, books and bin liners. Site is easy to use and customer service is fast and helpful, both by email and also by telephone.
You've heard the saying "if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is", well with flubit it isn't!!
Saved good amounts of money on a few items now - that's after an exhaustive web search to find the best prices I could.
Would highly recommend to anyone!
Bought several items through Flubbit now and on the whole very good service and savings of around 25%. well worth trying but if buying for a certain time you may 1) want to order well in advance and 2) check delivery times on the original site as I had to wait over 2 weeks for a couple of my items. Flubbit state that they will get you a discount within 48 hours but I also had to wait about a week for these same items to get my offer so from time i placed order to time received was around 3.5 weeks. overall a good experience though, I would definatly use Flubbit again and am already reccomending to friends and family.
I've used Flubit to do a lot of my online Christmas shopping this year. You sign up for an account with just an email address and password, but you also need a Paypal account for payment. This makes paying very easy and quick.
Most the time the team get back to you before the 48 hours they give for each new demand. Sometimes they might not, but as soon as I sent a message the team sorted out an offer. The majority of the time the team beat the price by around 16%. This beats any of the cashback sites and you dont have to wait for the savings.
At first I was a bit worried and so only ordered small items like CD's, but once I found out that I could trust Flubit I soon started placing my 4 demands a day!!
I've had excellent service from Flubit, One item got damaged in transit and Flubit quickly arranged another item to be sent out (arriving the next working day). I also placed a demand for a couple of items and asked the team if they could forget about the 48 hours waiting on this, as I hope to get it in time for Christmas. They contacted me and helped get it sorted quicker and hopefully I will get it for Christmas. If not it doesn't matter as I know the team tried their best and I will get it just after.
I was very surprised to get a Christmas card which was hand signed by all the team and had a message in for me. Knowing how long it can take to do Christmas cards, I really appreciate that they did this for their customers! Flubit make you feel special and of course things go wrong, but if you let them know they will make things right. I will be using Flubit from now on and have made sure all my friends and family are aware of them.
Good luck Flubit for the 2013 and the future, I hope things continue to succeed.
Well What to say about flubit...
Normally when reviewing a company, i say pros and cons, then a conclusion as to recommend the company or not, however with flubit, i really can't see any reason to buy anywhere else
Flubit allows you to get pretty much anything cheaper, you may only be saving a few £££ but really, why pay more i ask???
I have bought so much off flubit and really can fault it, over the cost of the things that i have bought i have saved hundreds!!!!- YES HUNDREDS!
The process of ordering is also very easy, you first need to sign up- very quick takes a maximum of 5 mins, you are then free to get products cheaper, this is also very easy, you put the name of the product e.g. new computer monitor, you then copy and the link of where you want to get the product cheaper, you then paste the link in to flubit, and they do all the hard work for you. Just a thing to note, their customer service is great- A++++ you really can't fault it!
When they provide you with a cheaper price, you can pay with paypal (or paypal guest) so it is completely safe!
Overall, i really can't see why you would buy products off anywhere else, this website is great!
I've used Flubit to do all my online Christmas shopping this year... that's quite a lot of toys, cosmetics, gadgets and chocolates (spread around all sorts of websites).
I decided I wanted to put the system to the test as a friend suggested I try them. First off you sign up for an account with just an email address and password, then you can make your first demand. They even show the less tech savvy how to cut and paste URL's (my father found this very helpful).
My first purchase was a styling wand for myself with a RRP of £130, I found a great deal online for £99 + £5 postage and in this offer there was also a free paddle brush (worth £20). I didn't expect to get the brush and wasn't really fussed about it. So I put it through Flubit and I got an offer back of £70 including delivery. I went for it. The process was very easy. Item arrived within a couple of days and in the parcel not only was there a Styling Wand, there was a gorgeous compact of hairstyling product (RRP £16) and the paddle brush! All beautifully packaged. I was extremely impressed.
Since then I've had excellent service from Flubit, One item got damaged in transit and Flubit quickly arranged another item to be sent out (arriving the next working day). Having Flubit as the middle man is useful, they act like your own personal shopper chasing up the retailer for you (particularly useful if you can't get online much during working hours). Any queries or changes to orders you wish to make are handled quickly. Obviously don't use this service if you are in a hurry to get items as the offer process can take 48 hours, it's normally much less than this though. Just remember to check the terms of the website you quote in your Flubit demand as Flubit will try and use them for your offer, if the website has 10 days delivery then that is what you're likely to get. The Flubit staff are a small and friendly team both on the phone and by email, they don't pretend to be a massive company, I like this honesty in the modern faceless world of internet shopping. This company is growing quickly and expect them to be a household name very soon. My offers have been about 20% off but some products have less of a discount; games consoles and the latest must have gadgets come in about 8-10% on average, but this is because the market is already very competitive. It's still well worth it! It's much better than all these voucher websites and schemes like MyVoucherCode, Wowcher and Groupon (I'm really not a fan) as you can buy the things you actually want and not the thing the retailer can't shift or wants to promote. You also know you will get something that will beat the best online price.... what's not to like?!
Oddly for me I've not got one bad thing to say about Flubit from my experience so far. I have tested it well and even reported teething browser issues a few months ago which were resolved within a day, they like their customers to give them as much feedback as possible.
Give it a go!... all you've got to lose is pounds off your shopping bill!
Ì brought two Christmas presents using Flubit this year. One item I entered was on a 50% sale promotion and Flubit still managed to save me £7 including delivery.
I have recommended the service and website to friends and will certainly use it again in the future when looking to buy a particular product.
The products found by Flubit were exactly the same product as the link provided no alternatives and the products arrived in great condition.
The only small critique I have is the contact with customer service, contact was easily made as I had to change my delivery address (as it is different from my billing address) but there was no acknowledgement or confirmation of the change so it was in fact delivered to the change of address, so there was no problem, just some reassurance would have been appreciated.
I came across flubit in a forum post; somebody had made. They'd managed to get a better deal. Curious, I signed up and requested a better deal to one by a popular retailer - a dealI didn't think they'd be able to better. But flubit did! Within a day I'd saved another 15% on an already good price. The parcel arrived within a few days, and was from a very reputable source. I've since used flubit another two times and saved several pounds.
The service from flubit is unique. You give them the url to the deal you'd like to see a better price on, and they reply to you within two days with their own price. You don't get to know who it is they're dealing with on your behalf, so you don't know who will be sending you the deal. If you agree to the price (there's no pressure), you pay by paypal. Flubit let you know when the item is dispatched, which is within three days in my experience. The deals I received have been sent from top companies at a fraction of their online prices.
I simply cannot fault flubit and will be using them exclusively to find better deals from now on.
I'd heard of Flubit a long while ago , prior to it's present incarnation, and i have to admit that i was dubious that they could deliver what they say they could. They state they are able to find you items cheaper than the cheapest price you find .
I was presently surprised when my first demand saved me 19% on the cheapest price i could find on the net. delivery is usually very speedy - in fact on one occasion my item was delivered the same day I received "your item has been dispatched" email.Take a chance and check out Flubit - youll be glad you did!
I came across Flubit purely by chance whilst watching a YouTube video. I placed my trust in them and boy was it the best thing I've done this year (apart from having my first child!!)
Flubit have saved me loads of cash so far, and it's such a good idea for a business! Everyone should be using Flubit, I tell everyone who mentions ordering something online.
They are far from a faceless online company, One item I ordered had taken ages to be dispatched, so the Flubit team called me up and offered to source the item from another outlet. The item was delivered the next day!! Also, and this really was amazing, the Flubit team sent me a Christmas card, which was signed by hand by all of the Flubit team members! Amazing. I should mention that I have nothing to do with Flubit other than being kind enough to submit a couple of bug reports a few months ago.
In summary, I love the excellent service that Flubit provides, and I would recommend to anyone.
This made me feel really good about shopping, the site makes you feel you have a friend helping you with the shopping. I used it for all of my big presents and they were always delivered quickly and often without postage.
Everyone likes to feel they are getting a bargain and this site is easy to use, keeps you informed of your purchases, reminds you of your deals but does not badger you with gimmicky e mails. It is even fun to use!
I would recommend anyone to try this out.
Every single item that I've challenged Flubit to find cheaper, it has managed with astonishing speed. I pride myself on finding items as cheaply as possible (including factoring in vouchers, cashback sites, delivery charges etc) - and Flubit almost every time beats what I can find.
Items that I've ordered have always found their way to me in a speedy manner (2-3 days I think my last purchase was - and that was even with the godawful Yodel carrier [see my review on Yodel separately if you care to read how awful they are]).
It offers you 4 'demands' per day - which is usually plenty unless you're a serious shop-a-holic.
I've saved myself a packet this Christmas by using Flubit and ordering items far cheaper than I have managed to find anywhere else. So do yourself a favour and check out this site before you click 'order' on Amazon!
I have known about Flubit for a long time, prior to it's change to the current system. I have been a big fan of the concept since I first discovered it. The idea is that you can 'demand' a product you're looking for by going to the Flubit website. All you need to do is provide the link to the item you want online (anything from a jacket to a new TV) and Flubit will get you that product for a much cheaper price. It may sound too good to be true but I can assure you, I've made many purchases through Flubit and all of them have been great and have saved me a lot of money. I have since introduced the concept to my parents who are now Flubit addicts!
Nowadays, if I'm planning to buy something in-store or online, I'll head onto Flubit and demand a better offer as they never fail to get me a better deal. I've bought everything you could imagine from my favourite perfume to DVDs and CDs for gifts.
Flubit has created a truly wonderful concept that is easy to use, quick and simple. If you haven't experienced Flubit, you don't know what you're missing. Nowadays, with everyone watching their spending, every penny counts when it comes to everyday items you're buying. Using Flubit, you could save much more than just pennies. You're saving time and money as Flubit do all the hard work for you. I would recommend that everyone should use Flubit and see for themselves how much money they could save.
Can't remember how i came across Flubit but i'm very glad i did.
I was totally intrigued by it and wanted to give it a go. I am a big bargain hunter and spend ages searching searching then searching again for the best deal but with Flubit you dont have to. They found me a deal loads better than i'd been able to and so fast.
The site is so easy to use and everything is easy to follow so its good for everyone.
So far i've not had chance to use them again but i certainly will and i'm recommending them to everyone already.
Thanks Flubit :)
I stumbled upon Flubit earlier on this year, completely by chance, at this point all I could do was sign up so that when the site became active I would be notified. As soon as I was registered I created a demand, then another, and another.... It get's ever so slightly addictive!
I am a complete bargain hunter anyway and refuse to pay full price for anything (if there isn't a sale on or a discount code to use then I will usually wait until there is!), and so Flubit is like my dream come true!
I love that payments are all via Paypal, and the customer service is absolutely second to none, for example, I received a Christmas card yesterday from Flubit, not a standard printed business card, this was hand written and signed by the team! I have told plenty of friends and family about the site, just because it is so amazing!
I've used flubit a few times now buying all sorts from a disney princess snowglobe maker for my daughter to a bed. I've only had a couple of problems where some items have not been sent but once the deadline for delivery had passed flubit had no problem refunding my money even though they had in the meantime been chasing the companies they were getting the goods from.
So far flubit has come back repeatedly with savings when I didnt think I could get the item any cheaper including on items from Amazon that only seem to be advertised via Amazon.
Their customer services is excellent and they get back to you and keep in touch with the progress of any questions.
