Was looking to order the Ring Video Doorbell from them last week. Got to the cart and shipping to Auckland was calculated at $48.99. Yeah..No thanks.

 

 

I was looking at lenses for my son's DSLR and they were by far the cheapest purchase price - then I got to the cart and looked at shipping!!! 

 

 

 

I decided that I'll never shop with them after seeing the shipping costs (which I cannot remember off the top of my head, but made the total approx. 50% higher than any local seller including shipping).

I ordered a monitor late last year with free shipping. They Shipped via PBT who then delivered it to the wrong address 2 weeks later and were unable to recover it. So after some bit of follow up with PBT and DickSmith, they resent another which reached me 2 and a half weeks later, totally a month and a half since i first ordered. Dick Smith were pretty good to deal with, PBT not so much.

 



 

Was looking to buy something else off their website recently and found it a bit wierd that shiiping the same item to area code 0629 was ~ $60, but shipping 1km away to area code 0630 is ~$6

Whoever runs the shop over there continues to be tricky... I was offered a mobile phone at a discount of $10, but found the shipping was $38. The phone was also available at the pre-discount price, and the shipping came in at $20 to NZ 🙄

I bought an LG phone from them for a family member a few months ago, shipping was free, and it arrived within 10 business days if I remember rightly. Didn't actually pay attention to who it was sent with but their tracking worked each step of the way in Oz and NZ.

I miss the old Dick Smith shops :( at least you could go in there and look at the item before buying it (or take it back easily if it was faulty).
