I have raised a dispute now with aliexpress. I am not sure how they will handle this.
As an update the seller rejected my dispute and refused reimburse me the 703rs that I had to pay due to the wrong description and value on the shipping label. Aliexpress support got involved and ruled in my favor. They are reimbursing me 10.4$ and upheld my dispute as valid.

Stay away from MyNextBook . in if you are planning to order any books. You may not get what you order, and whatever you get may have many quality issues. Return process is time and money consuming, and customer care is pathetic.

Why's this thread gone silent when Amazon's Prime Day and Flipkart's Big Shopping Days sale is on?

Post some offers people.

I got a 24 inch monitor for home https://www.amazon.in/LG-24MP88HV-24...words=24mp88hv

Was 13K final after HDFC instant cashback. These sales are dangerous for the wallet.

Has anyone bought car parts from boodmo ?
I recently went on boodmo to order an oil filter for my Fabia 1.4 tdi . The site promises an amazing range of spares parts for all makes of automobiles; but here is the catch: the delivery time is inordinately large. They will deliver in 20 days from Delhi to Mumbai. When I raised a complaint, they informed me that the filter is not readily available and is being sourced. And my complaint was closed. I still await delivery.
I ordered Shell Helix Ultra oil on Amazon and received it in two days.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 available for an effective price of 38k after all discounts and exchange bonus on Amazon.

Google Pixel 2 (128 GB) available for an effective price of 42k on Flipkart, and they are offering 37k if you sell it back to them within 8 months.

Really confused, someone please help!!

Ordered the new 6th gen iPad from Flipkart for 23.9k looks a good deal now that it supports apple pencil. Also got an Amazon fire stick and a boAt fast car charger for 399 including a micro USB cable. Amazingly fast delivery even during sales these days. Both things expected today.

You can head to this thread and read recent posts.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post4424405

To answer your question, I have ordered from boodmo and they are trustworthy, only thing is if part is not readily available they take a bit more time to deliver than promised, but they have delivered the parts in both my orders. If you choose for a refund they will process that also without any problems.

Only grouse with them is, the vendors list the product and sometime the site mentions it is available but later they realise it's not in stock and they get the part from company, that's when it takes time. But I will go for boodmo even if sometimes they delay the order.

I am surprised that nobody replied to you here. Probably because there is a separate thread for buying car parts online.

Btw, boodmo has been thrashed on this thread left, right and center on this thread. Order at your own peril!

How is the overall performance? I'm planning to buy it for development purposes + movies.

Have you tried any 1080p/4K movies?

I never learn!

Another amazon order, another new issue!

I am prime customer and placed an order during prime day sale (multiple items). I received part of the order today. There was suppose to be two items in the package, but one was missing. Invoice for both items were inside, and order status says they delivered both the items.

I contacted customer care, and their solution was refund. If I place the order again it will take another 4-6 days for delivery and have to pay higher price as well. They are suppose to be a world's most customer centric company, and I am their Prime customer.

Same boat. Not a prime subscriber though.

The description of the item I ordered said that there would be three items; I received only two. An email complaint elicited the stock response - refund or replacement. I liked the items and was unwilling to return them and hence settled for a partial refund.

Good thing is that whenever sellers goof up or are unscrupulous, amazon steps in and tries to protect the customers' interests. Works most of the times, but not always!
