Ditto - not impressed. And not good business practice no matter who or where you are.

This morning I got an email from customer service stating that my order has been cancelled. No refund yet. I've never understood why companies do that (HK does the same thing)....they will cancel an order, but a refund doesn't come for a bit.

Hopefully it works out.

I really don't understand why they didn't honor the price though. I don't know what their margins are, but I bet that $23 (or whatever it was), was still above their cost. Even if it was slighly less, they would have sold 30 of these things to people here on the forums who would probably talk about how much fun they were. Then more sell.

Instead, they now have about 30 somewhat angry customers. Pretty poor choice in my book.

I ordered spares (v939) right after I got the deal. When I got the refund/pay extra mail, I asked for a cancellation for the both orders (they were not processed, I pasted the status in the mail). Next mail I get is the shipment notification for the spares, with another mail stating they shipped without spares which was not true. So, in effect, they blatantly ignored my cancellation orders for the spares and are asking another $10.00 for their own mistake. Obviously, not going to be my first stop for future purchases w. this type of "customer service".

Be careful dealing with T-Mart.

I ordered a heli, spare batteries and spare landing gear - all showing in stock and shipping from the US. I got an email saying they shipped the landing gear, but the other 2 items were back ordered and that they MAY be available in 2 weeks. I wrote back asking why they shipped a spare part when they couldn't deliver the item the spare part was purchased for and to just cancel my order.

They wrote back saying it was too late to cancel.The other 2 items shipped from China and I could expect them in about 4 weeks. So now I am waiting a month to get a heli they said was in stock in the US.

I am tempted to just refuse the shipment.

Well, they are processing my refund now. i noticed the Syma 107g is now 51% off at $18.99. I wonder if the same thing will happen with that?

Well, they offered me $4 extra to refund my order, which I thought was kinda weird in the first place, so today I get a partial refund from the order of $22, then I get a refund for $4 for the rest of the $26, what a joke.

Me and my flying bud as well as about 8 other people have ordered the V929 from T-Mart for $51 with not a problem.
They are in the East Coast and you get them in 4 days - at least in Minnesota.

v202 @$26.68

My faith in Banggood is restored, because I had procrastinated for a while, and then did not have internet service for a week, I had not done anything about my order of the V202. This morning I got an e-mail from Banggood Customer Service saying they had shipped the V202 for that sale price, and they even provided a tracking number

So, he who hesitates is....rewarded?!? My dad was so wrong!!!

Good for them for honoring the sale price. They should have done that for everything. With the prices they pay for toys like this, I bet they still would have made money by selling them for $26.
