    Interesting Amazon experience number 342....Ordered the new Rolling Stones cd/Bluray boxset on Amazon AU (via Amazon UK) and received 4 ballbearing hinges instead :shake:. They were insistent I returned them for a refund but interestingly, you now don't have to post back to the UK - they supply a prepaid Australian address to send it back to. I hope the hinges weren't intended for Bezos' rocket.

    It's now shot up to $185, so I hope that you're the one who triggered the algorithm!

    Don't say that - I just spent over $100 with them on a box set via Ebay today! I've found them reliable in the past, so hopefully they're not slipping...

    I order from them quite a bit and haven't had any problems with them, although the lack of tracking is annoying, waiting on quite a bit of stuff at the moment.

    How long do you generally wait for them?

    is 3 months too long?

    They generally arrive in the time frame they specify, if not a little earlier. Nothing has failed to arrive.

    I’ve had two boxes not arrive from Rarewaves. Both were at the time recently OOP. Made me skeptical if they were sent at all.

    Thank you and sorry I’ve pinged the algorithm! Worth a punt on rarewaves at this price.

    I have doubts mine were sent either. Even the replacement that was 'sent' never turned up. Got refunded through Amazon.

    They are famous with saying they are sending replacements. Whenever I have bought from them and they have failed to arrive (happened twice) - I lodged an eBay claim. They always say they have resent the item...but I dispute getting a replacement and say that I want a refund and not replacement. They then refund me - but strangely the replacement they said they sent never arrives. They just say they are going to send a replacement to get the dispute closed. Well..from my experience anyways.

    I think sometime that we forget that you pay for a level of service. The cheapest will often spend the least on customer service!

    Not sending an item doesn't actually rate on a "level of service" scale, does it?

    It’s really dodgy for a large company like Rarewaves to lie about sending replacements, but the evidence is there. The evidence is also there that they accept orders but occasionally just don’t send large box sets to Australia (too expensive?). They use untrackable shipping methods & hide behind that.
