Flubit

Simple & Effective - Give it a go!... all you've got to lose is pounds off your shopping bill!

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.
