If you search the web, all suppliers are charging £12 or more for heated jets now.

Its fair enough stoney when they are sellingthem for that pirce originally.

 

Its more the fact they sell at one price, you buy it, then they cancel the order with abosolutely no explination, then you have to send them an email asking them why and they cancelled you order, and you get the reply of fords prices have gone up so they have to do the same.

 

And to top it off they ignore their own terms and conditions, therefore breaching a contract by cancelling the order without giving you the oppertunity to buy at the new price.

Im sure there must be some laws in business that says they must honour their own rules. Not that anyones going to take them to court over £8.01 :lol:

Distance selling regulations apply in this case.
As long as they put a disclaimer about reserving the right to cancel orders if there's a pricing 'error' them they have covered themselves.
At the end of the day it's them that loses sales and gets a bad reputation.
It's all despicable but unfortunately all legal.

do you reckon anyone has actually paid 30quid a pair for these things or are they wondering why their sales for washer jets are completely not existent now?

they are pushing it, but if I forgot I ordered them, they never would have refunded me :| no contact, no communication.

 

I might re-ignite the fire and start quoting all their terms and conditions and argue a case for a sale at the price previously paid as they did not fulfill there obligations... unlikely to go anywhere, but I do not let sellers walk all over me, I am a dog with a bone on these things!

Totally right, sometimes you get nowhere by being nice.
I'm a firm believer in arguing my case and not rolling over like companies seem to prefer you to do.

Yeah cheers Brigante! Haha.

 

I really don't like Allen Parts.  Like others have said - the handling is utterly awful, and borderline in terms of selling regs - has everyone been refunded or not?

Well I've got my refund  ;)

 

Like Jeebo and Stoney I hate it when retailers try and pull a fast one. In fact only today I had a minor success with an Amazon purchase. I was refused a refund/replacement as the goods concerned 'weren't covered by the sellers returns policy' and to try to get the manufacturers to replace it. Eh? No! Under the Sales of Goods Act your contract is with the seller NOT the manufacturer. So I emailed Amazon again quoting the relevant parts of the SoG Act and today I got an e-mail confirming a refund. A bit much for a £10 rucksack? Maybe, but I knows my rights  ;)  :D  :D     

 

Sorry for the change of subject.

Still waiting...emailed them again today. If nothing by Tuesday (being bank holiday weekend an' all that) I'll stop being quite so nice about it!!

The value is irrelevant - it's the principle!!  Most people just let these sellers fob them off - I say good on you for standing up for yourself!!

Dont get me started on other selling sites, ebays terrible for it with their 45 day limit. If you buy owt from china, such as the popular leds, if they dont arrive within the 20-25 days that it usualy takes, you email them and they email back offering to resend, by then almost 30 days have gone by so you then have to wait at least another twenty, so then your outside ebays limit and if the item doesnt turn up your screwed and the chinese know it, ive been done twice with that.

I had a right do with ebay about it but all they kept saying was that 45 days was plenty of time to make a claim, so no i ask for refund on everything instead of resending.

 

 

Just looked on allen parts and they are only selling mist jets for focus mk4s now by the looks of it, but the robbing  ba***rds are charging £15.98 each
