My first review on woot. Can we review here?
Well, you’ve seen them posting items on deals.woot.com. Another cheap chinese company like Deal Extreme and MeritLine. So I ordered some angry bird items for my son. Their site claims that shipping would be 10 - 20 days to the U.S. Fair enough, MeritLine and DealExtreme is about the same time length. Wrong!
I ordered an item on June 22nd. It arrived on August 1st. That’s 39 days. MeritLine and DealExtreme have never taken this long to ship items to the U.S.

One of the items I ordered was a knock off of the Knock on Wood game, which they call Knock on Pigs game. (It was on sale for $12.99)
I opened the bag with the rubber/plastic birds and pigs and noticed a real weird smell coming from them. Like a strong chemical smell. I almost washed them off to see if it got rid of the smell, but then I started thinking “Do I really want my 4 year old son to play with this? Even if I washed it with bleach water, who knows what this stuff contains.”

Also the sling shot broke right away. I barely pulled it back and it broke.

So I went to their site on the 1st and tried to do their RMA form. Click on submit and their web page just gave me a blank page. Tried it on the morning of August 2nd. Again, a blank page. So on their Contact Us page they have a toll free number to leave a voice mail. Never got a call back but their RMA page worked later that afternoon.
I got a RMA number and have to ship it back to China. It costs more to ship it back than the thing cost! How are they shipping it to the U.S. with free shipping, delivered to me by USPS, but sending it back costs more than this stupid thing cost me total? Oh well, thats the USPS for you.
So I started looking through their site and noticed something else.
I already noticed their logo is a knock off of GoDaddy’s old logo, but on their Clearance page…
Their image is stolen from the Aldi’s web site! Except the Clearance text that was added on the left hand side.

Oh man this company has so many things going wrong with them. I mean I’m sure all of these angry bird items are not licensed by Rovio (nothing on the tags of any of the items I purchased has anything about a copyright or anything about angry birds or Rovio) but after these things mentioned above, I am definitely not going through this company again.
I just wanted to share my experience with you guys. Watch what you order. I still have my full faith with MeritLine and though Ive had a few problems with DealExtreme, this company is going off the radar as being suspicious.
