    Yeah you can totally give them your money!

    Doesn't mean you'll get anything in return!

    If it was some kind of special promotion... Now they have everything way too cheap, I would never even try buying there.

    Wherever there's food. And Nintendo.
    Since the prices are so low, what do you have to lose? Make sure to find out what payment security system they use, usually written on the screen you enter your CC info in.

    From a quick look, they don't even have SSL despite the site claiming so (Tried a https url but no dice) so I would strongly advise you don't buy anything from there.
    Also their FAQ is broken so you cant even read it, and theres a lot more dodgy parts of it.

    So in short, no it's not legit you would end up being scammed

    They claim they use all this security crap though, so IDK. Any way to check?

    I did a quick check with dev tools and some fake info. There is no encryption of any kind, your credit card information is sent as plain text to their servers in a HTTP header.
    Definitely a security issue there.

    Also they say they support PayPal but actually don't.

    lol my favourite thing about this site is the link to Facebook at the bottom, and how it literally sends you to facebook.com. Fantastic.
