“I ordered a D&G silver bangle at a bargain price of...”

Written on: 09/05/2011

I ordered a D&G silver bangle at a bargain price of £20.00 (RRP £60.00)plus £4.95 delivery on 1 April. Delivery was due anytime until 10 May, which I was not aware of until order was processed, but prepared to wait for what appeared to be a price too good to be true. Anyway, after looking forward to getting my parcel any day now I just got an email today (9 May) informing me that there was a problem with the supplier and they actually do not have this item!!! Makes me wonder if this will be… Read Full Review

“Worst Internet Shopping Experience ever encountered. ”

Written on: 04/05/2011

Worst Internet Shopping Experience ever encountered.

Ordered 5 items on 27th March and suprised that the order confirmation quoted delivery between 4th April and 5th May although full payment taken from my account within a couple of days from ordering.
Waited until 4th May with no contact from the company at all and called customer support.
They advised me that they do not hold any stock and prefer to get payment from the their customers before despatching (or even obtaining)the goods.

Then… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2011

I had been looking for a good quality pair of sunglasses and saw a pair I liked on Brandalley advertised at £45 with an original price of over £200. I though this was a bit far-fetched so did some research and satisfied myself that they were likely to be worth more than £100, although I couldn't find the exact pair elsewhere.
Including postage I paid £50 and they've arrived very promptly and well packaged, however they have what looks a lot like an original price label on them quoting £60… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2011

I started off being really impressed with the Brand Alley website and have placed several orders in the past. The first time I ordered I got the goods quickly but subsequently I waited up to 6 weeks. I am still waiting over a month for 3 items. I appreciate the website does tell you how long the wait could be from and to, but mostly the itemss arrive at the end of the time scale given, give or take a few days, and having to chase up.
I will never use the site again. If I order something for the… Read Full Review

I wish I'd read everyone comments before I ordered from them, if I'd been buying on ebay I would have checked customer ratings unfortunately I was swayed by a glossy advert / website in a reliable newspaper. Don't make the same mistake… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/04/2011

I have received upto now 2 deliveries from orders made on the brandalley website. Both took long times, and quite extra-ordinarily, both had some items damaged due to the cheap quality packaging used by brandalley. Their packaging is extremely poor and damages the items in transit. like one of the pearl drop earing had been twisted. in my other delivery there were skincare products in tubes as well as small tubs. the tubes are 150 ml. and one of them had not been tightly closed so it spilled… Read Full Review

“If I could give them no stars for customer service I...”

Written on: 25/03/2011

If I could give them no stars for customer service I would. Atrocious. Customer service just fob you off with a refund - no explanation, no apology. I asked about compensation - they've stopped giving it. One can only assume that they make that many cock ups they no longer can afford it. I certainly won't be using them again. One of the worst online shops I have ever dealt with. 4 out of 5 orders that I have made have been incorrect. a 20% success rate is pretty dire… Read Full Review

“Yes, they offer good price for branded item. ”

Written on: 24/03/2011

Yes, they offer good price for branded item.
And yes, they already state in their terms and agreements, the delivery may take a month (plus) to be delivered.
Imagine you wait for the item for a month and being told the item is gone. And it is not just once or twice, but THREE TIMES in less than a year???!!!

And the oddest part is (happen on my last purchase): I ordered a 7forAllMen jeans and last Tuesday they said they cannot fulfilled because item is not available but a day later, it is… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2011

Have never written a review before but have felt compelled with Brand Alley - ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL SERVICE. Every order delivered late and most items within the order were cancelled/refunded at least a month after I had paid for them (and paid my credit card company). Received quite a sincere sounding email the 1st time but by the 3rd time was getting extremely fed up with Brand Alley's 'apologetic' email. Most recent order - they phoned me to offer a slightly different item as the original… Read Full Review

“I ordered Christmas gifts from them at the end of...”

Written on: 22/03/2011

I ordered Christmas gifts from them at the end of November. Having used Brandalley before I was aware that the delivery dates are sometimes quite lengthy. I was assured that my products would be with me before Christmas by two emails.
I finally received my products on 12th January. Sent them 6 emails, never received a reply. Rang the call centre when I could (they only work Monday to Friday and shut at 4.30) and there was no apology, they just said they were busy. Maybe because everyone else… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/03/2011

Ordered a DKNY bracelet for my friend for her birthday. Quite proud of myself because I had 4 weeks to spare. Bracelet was promised within 28 days which was a bit worrying. Then after 3 weeks I received an email saying it had been despatched so was pleased. Records showed that it was sat at the depot for days so when I queried this they promised delivery for 2 days later. Didnt arrive so I chased them up to be told they had tried to deliver it but failed so it has been returned to the… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011 by jeannie0805 (1 review written)

I have been a customer of BrandAlley for some years now but I am worried now about the quality of their products. My last 3 orders are as follows - I ordered a coat for my hubby where the arms holes were positioned so low it was so obviously a second. I then ordered a coat for myself which had pulled stitching on the end and no brand label on the neck also a second and I have just received a bottle of perfume that is rancid and well past its sell by date yet another fob off on an innocent… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/02/2011

I ordered these at the beginning of Jan and received them a month later. Brand alley get away with this poor delivery but stating on the confirmation email that it could take up to 28 days to receive your item, although this 28 day period only started 10 days after i had placed my order!

I eventually received my boots, brad alley use DHL who are just awful and my closest depot (i live in London) is Boreham wood about 15 miles away. They deliver from 8-9pm, and i got them at 8pm having had to… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2011

I know there is a lot of slack for the waiting times, I have had missed a few anniversary present here and there, but I am used to the 28 days delivery. However, on my recent purchase the service was exceptional, I ordered 3 items they were delivered within the few days but 2 items were slightly too big for me. So i sent the two back and received my refund within a few days of arrival (I had tracking). But more importantly, They refunded me for all the goods even though I only sent 2/3, as the… Read Full Review

This is the worst service I have ever recieved whilst shopping online. Today, after spending 20 minutes on hold, I find out that the order that was shipped on the 18th Jan was given to the wrong courier. I cannot understand how such a stupid mistake could have happened.

I have just been advised to call back the customer services team on Monday to find out about redelivery (or i might recieve an email).

This is completely unacceptable. Who has time to wait on hold for 20 minutes! I was not… Read Full Review

Yesterday I received my order (might I add, within the specified time period so no complaints there). I had purchased a book- and I am totally disgusted with my purchase!!! I thought I was going to receive a brand new copy of the book, instead I have received a second-hand copy!! The book is in second-hand condition- marks on it and creasing/ small tears to the pages and to PROVE that it is DEFINITELY second-hand there is an inscription scribbed in huge messy writting across the whole first… Read Full Review

I ordered christmas gifts on the 1st of November, they eventually arrived the 1st week in January even after they promised me delivery, I had to ring 3 times, I sent a number of emails and they never responded. This company are happy to take your money and then they do not really care about your delivery, Never use them for a present, you cannot rely on them. The staff are untrained and un sympathetic, they have no idea about customer service… Read Full Review

I have been a customer of this company for a number of years and I have put up with the long wait for deliverys. I put an order in on 5/12/10 and was promised delivery before Christmas. £179 was taken from my bank account on 9/12/10 and I am still waiting for the goods.

I will not order again from this company and even though their prices can be competetive is it really worth the wait? Meanwhile they sit on the interest from all of the duped customers… Read Full Review
