Ive bought from perfume.com a few times now - my most recent purchase was so disappointing that Im on here writing about it - so you don't make the same mistakes I did. The first thing I noticed was the scent didn't match up to what Ive purchased in store. There are subtle undertones (flower and freshness) and a sweetness that is completely absent. There is a very very strong wiff of alcohol and the spray loses its scent within the first 15 mins. After the first couple uses I started seeing some of the metallic paint from the bottle was coming off onto my fingers. Upon closer inspection the workmanship on the bottle is extremely shoddy. Every legitimate bottle Ive purchased was very well made - nothing ever flaked off the bottles and the fake jewels were seemingly cemented into the glass - on these perfume.com scents the bottles immediately start falling apart. Please see images for clarity. Buyer Beware - These perfumes are not genuine.

Tip for consumers:
When buying perfume don't look for cheaper or discounts - buy the real product in store.

Products used:
Bought 2 perfumes, used both.

It's been 3 months since I applied for the first free samples - all I have to show for it is mass amounts of robotic and scam calls. There are no samples. It's a scam to get your info. Beware of this site.

We love Halloween and go out of our way to find awesome costumes every year - I usually order early so that the costumes arrive before october 31. This was my first time ordering from party city Canada. Ordered our costumes for this Halloween (2019) online on friday September 20. Tuesday September 24 I received confirmation that they had shipped - cut to today: Thursday September 26 - our box of costumes (3) has arrived! 2 business days! All 3 costumes are exactly as they appear on the website - and all came in the right sizes. I am extremely impressed. Every year I order costumes online and so far party city canada is the best for selection, price and shipping. Awesome :)

Tip for consumers:
Seems like a great choice for last minute costumes - the shipping is so fast!

I buy from this site often and after a few years have noticed some discrepancies. First - Rosegal asks you to review their products on their site - but only favorable reviews are posted. Second - you can earn " r points" towards your next purchase but after saving a couple hundred r points it ends up being barely a 2$ discount - which is my third point - no matter what discounts or coupons you receive Rosegal doesnt lose any money as they will hike prices on everything else you buy to recoup their losses. My last purchase they even went so far as changing the currency so it would appear cheaper. Imagine my surprise when I saw a dress advertised for 32$ only to find out after buying that it was not in cad and instead was usd - the dress with shipping and taxes that I thought was 32$ ended up being closer to 50$ (the dress was stunning and well made). Rosegal does have some decent clothes - and they sell a lot in the size Im looking for - but quality and fabrics are not consistent. Embroidery comes off after a wash or two, seams rip apart after a couple wears - the last shirt I ordered was beautiful but a mess of loose threads. I spent 10 minutes cutting threads so i could have a nice shirt. Don't get me wrong - I do love a lot of their clothes -and it is hard to find the right sizes in my area - its just gotten worse over the last few purchases. It went from affordable to ridiculous in no time fast. I can understand price hikes if the quality is improved - but it isn't - and a discount should be a discount - not pay this price now and we will increase the cost of everything else you buy.

Tip for consumers:
sizing is difficult - it helps to shop by fabric as some fabrics are more forgiving than others

Products used:
I wear about half of everything Ive purchased from the site. Depends on the overall quality

Found this site randomly one night after a few drinks - it appeared to be a similar concept to ebay. It is NOT like ebay. A screen pops up with tons of items and a super quick countdown of how much time is left in the auction (generally only a few mins each) Everything looks like amazing deals - and its very fun to win an auction. Upon further use Ive come to see that even if you lose an auction the item you want will pop back up in another few minutes or so. The prices get driven up quickly so you never end up paying what you think you are going to. We bought a lot off of this site because it was super addictive - and ended up with a lot of things we dont use (why do I need a small light up teddy bear that you cant shut off without removing batteries?) I did make a purchase of 3 super cheap handheld video games with 260 games on each which are great for road trips. A hit or a miss site.

Tip for consumers:
dont drink and shop - dont get sucked into the auctions. the countdown is so quick you feel pressured to bid so you dont lose the item - the price gets driven up quickly. Keep your cool and wait a couple minutes and the item will pop up again.

Products used:
bought a few games we still use.

Hi Pamela,

Thank you for your thorough review.

We want you to be pleased with all of your purchases on Tophatter

We have a generous return policy; if for any reason you're not completely satisfied, you can request to return an item for up to 30 days from the date of delivery. See full details on the return policy here https://tinyurl.com/yd75uc6e

Shoppers also have the option to rate their delivered items. Rating items is important because 1.) other buyers will be able to review the average rating on products before they bid, and 2.) items rated consistently low will automatically stop being scheduled on the platform. For these reasons we encourage you to rate the products you have purchased, although doing so is not required.

Kind Regards,
Angelique

Have bought a few things from them - kindof a hit or miss. A lot of what I bought ended up being donated to used clothing bins. They did sell me a couple of my favorite shirts tho so i have to give them that. Website is easy to use - customer service gets back to you within a reasonable amount of time - The one issue I had with them they solved extremely quickly (a shirt I bought arrived in awful condition - I was refunded and they suggested I donate the shirt if I didnt want it)

Tip for consumers:
sizing is a little difficult - the sizes tend to run way too small or way too big. I tend to shop by fabrics to avoid sizing issues.

Products used:
bought many things - used about half of what i bought

WHY AM I BEING CHARGED FOR THINGS I AM NOT MADE AWARE OF> I AM BEING CHARGED DUTIES AND TAXES BY THE DELIVERY COMPANY AFTER I HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR EXPEDITED SHIPPING> WHAT AM I PAYING SHIPPING FEES FOR IF YOU ADD ON EXTRA THAT YOU DONT TELL ANYONE ABOUT? YOUR WEBSITE SAYS I WILL NOT BE CHARGED EXTRA IF MY ITEMS ARE SHIPPED SEPERATELY> IT DOES NOT SAY I WILL HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER 30$ IN ORDER TO GET WHAT I HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR! I PAID FOR 2 ITEMS PLUS EXPEDITED SHIPPING - TODAY I HAVE A MESSAGE ON MY PHONE FROM DHL CARRIER SERVICE DEMANDING I PAY AN ADDITIONAL FEE FOR DUTIES OR TAXES OR THEY WILL NOT RELEASE MY ORDER> I REFUSE TO PAY> I WANT WHAT I ORDERED

I have been using jjgames for quite a few years now. They are amazing. I hate walking into physical stores so this website has been a game changer for me. No matter what Im looking for they always seem to have it super cheap - for the times they dont have it in stock they will email you as soon as it comes in. Ive bought games, cables, game controllers, accessories etc. The shipping is always quick, they offer more than one payment option (Im a big fan of paypal) and their website is very easy to use. Thankyou for great service :)

I made 3 separate orders thru wish around the start of December. As the date of my package arrival neared I started to read some online reviews about this company. I came across so many negative reviews and many people had horrible things to say regarding their customer service. During the delivery time wish contacted me several times to ask whether or not my purchases had been delivered. They offered me the option to wait or to get a refund. I told them I would wait a little longer to see if they showed up. My packages as of today have not arrived - so I left a message with customer service letting them know. They emailed me back very quickly to let me know they have refunded all 3 of the items I bought. There is still a chance that these items may arrive - I am aware that ordering overseas sometimes takes a few months to arrive - but I came to write this review because my experience with them was so very different from the experiences I've read from other people. I am extremely pleased with how quickly and professionally they tried to resolve this. I'm really hoping these purchases show up because I would love to order from them again.
