Mazuma Mobile

Great End-to-end experience

Used Mazuma as needed to get rid of my old iphone 4s; I was happy with the price they offered and the money was transferred directly into my account within a few days. Very happy.

allbeauty.com

Very Satisfied

I was looking for a particular perfume (Jour D'Hermes, by Hermes) and was struggling to get it online at the usual retailers - I did a Google search and came across CheapSmells - I was a bit put off by the name, however, having read through their information on the website I was confident they were a reputable business.

The product I ordered was, as the website name suggests, actually cheaper than I was expecting to pay (I think this is something to do with the business being based in the Channel Islands) so it was nice to feel like I was getting a bargain. The perfume arrived in around 5 days and overall I am very satisfied with the whole service.

If I could suggest any improvements I think it would be good to be able to track deliveries - this is pretty standard with most online retailers nowadays so was unusual not to be able to track the package once dispatched. However, it did turn up so I suppose that's the main thing!

Would definitely use again and recommend to others.

ghd

Great products

I recently ordered replacement straightening irons from GHD as my old ones (also GHD's) had come to the end of their life. As it's a number of years since I purchased from GHD I wasn't sure how they would have evolved but I found their website to be much improved, the variety in their product range better and, most importantly of all, when I ordered my new irons, they arrived within 48hours and work perfectly. Cannot fault them on this experience - would definitely recommend.

Myprotein.com

Great Product, Speedy Delivery

I ordered from MyProtein at the recommendation of my trainer and I was not disappointed. The product arrived within a couple of days, is great value (for around £40 I got more than enough Whey to see me through the next couple of months). The product I ordered was "MP Max True Whey" in Strawberry flavour. It tastes great, mixes well and I will definitely buy again - perhaps working my way through the rest of the flavours whilst I'm at it!

Dominos

Very Well Executed Online Experience

I use the online service from Dominos whenever I order a Pizza, it's easy to use, clear and simple to navigate - just what you need for a product like takeaway Pizza. It saves all your favourites too, which makes it even easier to order.

Amazon

One of the best

I have yet to be disappointed with an Amazon product search, they pretty much sell anything you would ever want or need to order online, and if they don't, they can link you to someone that does. I often find they are able to offer products a discounted rates too (I imagine they can agree deals with suppliers due to their purchasing power). I have been a customer for many years and (touch wood) have had no problems with any of my transactions - can't recommend enough.

Primark

False Economy

Primark may be temptingly cheap but everything I have ever purchased from there has brought home the old adage, "Buy Cheap, Buy Twice". I no longer shop there and prefer to save up for better quality versions. The only way I could justify ever shopping there again would be when buying for babies / small children as the life span of their clothing is much shorter, making spending lots of money to buy them a waste. Having said that the fact that their supply chain allegedly has some very questionable links (i.e. workers in developing countries not being paid a living wage by Primark sub-contractors in order to keep wholesale prices as low as possible) makes me feel uncomfortable about buying from there at all.

O2

Website and Customer Support Needs Work

The website was a nightmare to use for me after mix up with my details left me with 2 different online 'identities' attached to one phone number, causing problems every time I tried to log in. This left me no option but to call the customer service line, who were unable to help me on the numerous occasions when I called to discuss the problem. I am not so unreasonable as I don't understand that problems occur, however I found o2's response (or lack thereof) very disappointing, especially because I had previously been very happy with my o2 tariff. However a good tariff isn't everything, the customer support needs to be good too. I have now moved my custom to Vodafone, who have been much easier to deal with (so far) - As an (almost comical) post-script to the entire business, o2 then erroneously deducted a further, dd payment after my last bill date; they have since apologised and refunded but it certainly didn't improve my opinion of them.

Best Pest Control

Excellent All Round

I ordered some cat repellent products. Website was easy to use (if a little basic in design - although that's hardly a major issue), I paid via paypal and the goods arrived a few days later, can't really ask for a smoother buying experience than that. The products themselves are currently doing a good job of keeping nuisance neighourhood cats from fouling in my flower beds (currently empty due to colder weather). All round excellent experience, wouldn't hesitate to use again or recommend to others.
