    I ordered some DSTT back in January 12, waited awhile to get them but they never came. So 2 weeks ago I receive a package from DealExtreme hoping it would be my DSTT, but they only shipped the 1 gig microsd card which I ordered with my DSTT. They put a note on it saying some of the items are not shipped because they have none. So I email mailed them saying my DSTT did not arrive. So they canceled my order saying I would get a pay pal refund. Its been awhile since the refund has come through. So I email them few days ago saying where is my refund. They replied back saying the order was shipped so no refund. Damm bastards are trying to pull a fast one on me. Anyway I have the memory card with a note saying that my DSTT were not shipped. I have opened a paypal claim. DO NOT ORDER FROM THESE GUYS THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!!!!!!!!!!!

    Places sometimes run out of stock. It happens. Take a chill pill. I've been ordering from DX for a long time and I've not experienced any problems from them. It just takes a few weeks to get anything, which is fine with me because they're cheap as can be.

    I have been patient, I just get upset when some says they will do something and all of a sudden then change things up.

    Maybe you should ask for proof that the rest of your order has shipped, like tracking info for the second package. When I ordered my ezflash V from them, it took almost a month to ship. That was probably my fault for ordering right before x-mas with standard shipping.

    Who cares about the tens of thousands of other people who've received their orders and have been happy with DealExtreme over the course of the last year, since you're having trouble they must be scammers!

    They're not in it to rip anyone off, just disorganized sometimes. Use fucking logic.

    I ordered from them 10 days before you, and I got my shipment in little over a month. Your order had bad timing, because they just recently finished a holiday. Just be patient, your pokemans will come eventually.

    Dealextreme has been great, in fact I've gotten 6 things from them already. Planning to get more.

    dealextreme has been great to me (aside from the fact that every package takes at least a month for me to get it). Ive accepted that their products take forever...and i take that into consideration before i buy, but rest assured the product will come...ive bought 7-8 things from them and they are all great/cheap...if you can manage the wait time then its the best site IMO

    I understand that you are angry with them and frustrated, but I've made big order (it was really big package) and it was few days after New Year, and had NO problems with it..Everything I ordered was packed very well, and arrived after two, two and half weeks!! The same day I ordered from DealExtreme, I also ordered from Play-Asia, and package from Play-Asia came the whole week later!! So I guess, I was pretty lucky to get stuff from DE so fast..
    I think that you should try to contact them again, and explain the situation nicely, I don't think that they had intention to steal you 30 $!! [​IMG]

    Hey Urza, don't tell me to use logic. I have been patient. Wait till it happens to you.... I also have bought orders from them in the past and have receive them. That does not give them the right to change there mind all of a sudden. Look at the Dealextreme TTDS post. How many people were told they would get the shipment and all of sudden there order changes to no stock....

    I have had a great time with DX. I first bought a DSTT from them and they weren't in stock so I asked for a refund and I got it. Secondly, I bought a NDS&GBA flashcart for $9.21 and it was out of stock and they told me I could exchange. So I did and they sent me an Elink(It works fine too!) which is a $21 value for only $9!!! I couldn't be any happier with these guys!

    A lot of ppl who orders DS pirate cards from DealExtreme tend to call them scammers...something I noticed.

    With DS pirate cards from DX, you usually have to wait twice as long as there are many people that order 300 pieces to sell locally. As well as that, its been Chinese New Year recently, so they only got back on February 15th.

    Actually they haven't even acknowledged my order yet because of the holiday...I'm not complaining.

    Yeah people just have to realize that these flashcards are getting popular and DX has them the cheapest so they are just flying out of stock.

    I've ordered several thousand dollars of merchandise from DX, and gone through everything from them "losing" items in the warehouse, to items getting lost in mail, to being sent the wrong item, being sent nonfunctional items, and once never actually receiving an item (never did follow up on that).

    Since you've ordered from DX before, you should be aware that they aren't the most organized supplier, and they are never fast.

    One thing they ARE however is legit, and for the most part they'll work with you to sort out the times they fuck something up.

    I would probably give you more credit if you hadn't jumped to the nearest DS board and go on spouting nonsense about DX "trying to rip you off", and for that despicable act I feel no obligation to show you any respect.

    I believe they say right on the site that if the entire package isn't available at the time of order, they'll ship what's missing when it's back in stock; it's not our problem if you can't read the fine print.

    There was a case similar to this where someone ordered a CECT P168 phone, and when the package arrived he got everything but the phone, just a note where the phone should have been stating that they'd ship waht was missing when it was back in stock.

    Ya it does say that on almost all pages that sell NDS Flashcards...
    I think he's just trying to annoy people now as he has been told off by nearly every1 on this forum, including Urza lol.

    What did you order? Shipping itself to the US usually takes 2-4 weeks, but if you ordered a high-demand product it could take significantly longer.
