  • Gone but not forgotten

    Ecost suddenly shut down its website in early July 2014 without advance notice. I have no idea what happened with people who already paid them and were awaiting product. But I can imagine. SCUM LIKE ECOST NEVER REALLY GO AWAY. They just open another crooked outfit under a different name. In this case they didn't even change the name much. Their presence is now eCost on eBay. ETERNAL VIGILANCE is the cost of remaining unswindled. Read the rest of the reviews here before getting involved with these swindlers. More...

  • Stay sane, avoid eCost

    Bought a wristwatch at a reasonable but nothing=special price. It arrived with a completely dead battery. THREE e-mails to "customer service" were ignored. Closer examination of the band shows dirt typical of body oils and sweat. It was a used watch! By the way, the chances of collecting anything advertised with a manufacturer's rebate are slim. More...

  • ecost rebate experience

    Purchased a TomTom gps from ecost in 2008. Still awaiting my $28 rebate. Ironically, I only bought it because of the rebate. I have called and emailed dozens of times but on my last call, she could find no record of my issue. I understand from previous calls that ecost was purchased by another company, the email center that received my submission located in Arizona was closed aroud the time my rebate was in process, etc, etc.. I again submitted my emails from the rebate center and some of my subsequent followup emanil. but I have little hope of success. I have never purchased from... More...

  • mis-picked, no help, nobody cares

    Not only will I not ever order from them again, I can honestly say I would not take a freebie from them. They would somehow fk that up. I ordered a factory-refurbished PC from them. It arrived with the wrong power adapter. They made me jump through several hoops then I called the manufacturer direct to learn more. They referred me back to the refurbisher (ecost said it was factory refurbished, but in fact it wasn't). The refurbisher they use would not help me so I ended up with ecost who then insisted I go through tech support. I don't need tech support to confirm for me a... More...

    I ordered an LED TV for a Christmas present last night and got an email today from ecost informing me they could not verify my address! I have only recieved 12 amazon boxes already this Holliday season and asked the rep why I was being asked question after question about my address. He was anything but HELPFUL! I got so frustrated at the inefficacy of the company I cancelled my order. From the looks of the other reviews cancelling my order looked like the best decision I made!

  • Refund - Lost in Shipment

    I purchased an IPOD from for the amount of $279. Unfortunately,when the package came, the box was empty. I have called them daily for 3 months and have talked to multiple customer service representatives. But no resolution has been found. I filed a dispute with my credit card company. I filed a complaint with UPS. To date, no one has accepted the responsibility or refunded my money. I am quite upset with who advertises heavily on the web and also with UPS who has told me that their relationship is with the shipper... and since I am the recepiant, they will not help me. I...

  • Horrible Customer Service

    I ordered a refurbished HP computer and was told to expect the product in 3-7 business days. Three days after the company acknowlwdged my order, I got an e-mail asking me to call a number because "there is a problem" with my charge card. I NEVER had any problems with my charge card, so I called my card company, which of course confirmed they had authorized payment. In fact they said that the purchase was approved 4 days prior. I then called eCost at the number given. They said that sorry, my card was on some "list", thus couldn't deliver the item to the address... More...

  • Horrible customer service

    I have purchased with ecost before and went to them when I was looking for a pico projector. Their price was low, and prior experience told me that the shipping was fast and reasonable. The projector arrived quickly, but alas, the HDMI port did not function. I called up customer service and they told me that I would have to speak to the manufacturer and get a 5 digit claim# first. I then called up the manufacturer and after some trouble- shooting confirmed it was a bad port although he had no idea what I was talking about with a five digit claim#.

When I did not receive the item by the evening of the 22nd, I checked the shipping status with UPS. It was still listed as "Billing Information Received".

  • Worst customer service, ever

    I don't even have the energy to write about how frustrated I have been dealing with a return to Ecost that was lost by the shipper. I called and emailed countless times to get resolution, was given conflicting information, and finally after my 3rd or fourth 3-way call with them and UPS, a claim was filed. UPS was always very helpful, but they could not do anything for me directly, and Ecost was hardly timely in filing the necessary claim. It has already been over 2 months I've been dealing with this, and in my most recent call to Ecost I was informed that it should be resolved by... More...

  • Deceptive advertising, abysmal service

    I bought a Plantronics Bluetooth headset from eCost. It was advertised as new, and it looked like a good deal. When I received it, it was not in its original packaging. It was in a little bubble envelope, with only 1 ear bud (instead of a set), with a power cord that had been rewound, and with incomplete documentation. In fact, their effort at providing a user guide was only a few pages on a photocopied sheet of paper. After calling the manufacturer and verifying they never send out product in this condition, and there was no such thing as an OEM for this product, I realized I had been... More...

The rep indicated while we were ordering the computer that free Windows7 upgrade would be available online to download. However when we got the computer it was something to mail away for and will end up being a 3-4 week ordeal. This computer was refurbished and no better deal than the store brand new with Windows7 on it. I called on Tuesday to return it but was told NO Returns. I have a call into my credit card company....
