Have you ever heard the phrase "Too good to be true?" I get the feeling this is often the case for the kind of deals that appear on this website, and similar ones such as Groupon.
My main problem with Wowcher is that I paid for 2 vouchers for a massage, "redeemed" the vouchers and then simply could not get the massages booked because the supplier was refusing to answer the telephone, or when they did, were stating they didn't have any free appointments.
I contacted Wowcher expecting they would be on my side, but instead simply stated that the voucher had been redeemed so no refund could be made. They really could not care about my situation in the slightest.
I then emailed them on 2 additional occasions but they simply ignored my email.
It's interesting isn't it, because my money must have gone somewhere - and I suspect most likely it's sat in Wowcher's bank account!
I know it's tempting to "get a bargain" but just think of all of the hassle you'll encounter if things do go wrong. Far better to cut the middle man out (ie, Wowcher) and go directly to the supplier. They are far less likely to do you over than a huge faceless organisation like Wowcher.
Excellent website, and really easy to use. I purchased Row A stall tickets for "Ghost: The Musical" at a really reasonable price.
A great thing about using this website is that you know which seats you're booking. So you won't get caught out with crap places to sit.
Remember to do your research to find the best seats depending on the show and the theatre - there is plenty of information to find out there.
Would definitely recommend and I'll be using again.
I bought a bike about a month ago and from the moment I entered the store it was a terrible experience. This review could go on, but I'm just going to highlight issues:
1) Staff were not professional and had no enthusiasm to want to serve anyone. People should be thankful they have a job nowadays but you wouldn't have thought that. Check it out yourself, Chiswick London branch!
2) Wrong lights were fitted on the bike
3) My seat bag wasn't screwed on. Mud guard was not screwed on.
4) Front wheel came lose whilst I was driving in busy traffic and now wheel is slightly buckled
5) I was charged TOO MUCH, staff were using their mobile phone calculator to apply a 20% discount I had from bike manufacturer
6) 2 weeks in, issues arising with gear changes and chain coming off
DO NOT get your bike assembled by Halfords. This is especially true if you are getting a bike for a child. Do not trust them with you or your childs life.
I ordered a few bike accessories and found the website easy to use and the prices seemed competitive.
It is a shame they can't specify which day the order is expected to arrive, but I went ahead and it turns out it arrived in a few days.
On another note, I recently visited Evans in CHISWICK and found the staff to be friendly and helpful. I had such a bad experience with Halfords I wish I had given Evans my initial business.
Just made an additional £150 order from Evans website and paid £4 for express delivery, hopefully it will all arrive and in good time.
I bought the experience for "Afternoon Tea at Kensington Palace" and found that:
a) They send you a voucher in the post, which may take up to 5 days. So if you are looking for something last minute, do not buy from lastminute.com.
b) The price "on the door" is actually cheaper than buying with lastminute.com. You also have more choice if you pay "on the door" as there are numerous different types of tickets, and afternoon teas.
The experience itself was great, but I would not buy from lastminute.com again.

I ordered a netbook from very.co.uk via their website as they had one of the lowest prices on the web.
After making my purchase I came on to Trustpilot and was shocked at reading the reviews! I tried to cancel my order, but you couldn't - unless you telephoned their premium telephone number; yeah right!
Amazingly, my order was delivered within a couple of days, and without a problem.
The reason very.co.uk do not get 5 stars is that they don't specify when they will despatch the goods and secondly that they want to rip off their customers with a premium telephone number.
With that said, I did receive my order. So well done, very.co.uk.
Now all you need to do is specify a shipping date, remove the premium telephone number. Last, but not least, go visit a priest and ask them if it is actually morally right to charge 39.7% interest to people who are, most likely, the least able to afford it.
You'd think with all the money behind them that this company would be able to provide a much better shopping experience and be more up to date with modern e-commerce technology.
I bought a PC DVD game because it was one of the cheapest online retailers out there (and beat Amazon) so I went ahead and made a purchase.
I noticed a few problems, firstly, they didn't specify when the order would be despatched, or what delivery company they would use. They simply said "In stock. usually despatches in 24 hours"
It turns out they sent the item Royal Mail Second Class. Why a retailer would force this option on a consumer is beyond me. I bought the item, i obviously want it to come as soon as possible, not in a second class slow service.
I actually looked at returning this item, due to having to wait 2 extra days for it to arrive, but it seems there are NO return instructions with the parcel, and after looking through their site, I found the returns policy within the FAQ. It seems you have to phone up their 0845 number if you want to return it. So in otherwords, using a mobile, I would have to pay a premium just to call them.
Did I receive the goods at a good price - Yes
Did i get them in an acceptable time frame, and did it seem easy to "change my mind"? - No
Would I buy from blockbuster.co.uk again? No
I've always used MyProtein. Recently I looked around for a competitor (as I couldn't find any valid discounts or offers) but all the other websites I came across seemed tacky and difficult to navigate. I trust Myprotein's products, they have always worked well for me and because I can choose the type of delivery company, I select one that I know delivers well in my area. I can't see myself ever using any different company for all my protein supplies. Nice work guys.
