Is this legit??

Recommended Posts

There are about 10 others on the forum who already have them and can tell you it is legit. 

Essentially it comes down to where it is most effective to have them advertise and how.

For Amazon sellers, having a good amount of reviews is essential to being shown at the top of the results for search terms, aka "Binoculars."

Instead of paying thousands on banner ads and videos, it is more cost effective to get it from the ground up.  

Over the years I have had many such offers, some good products, a lot of "eh" and some crap.  These are actually pretty good and I have them in my range bag, on par with $150 pairs from Nikon, Bushnell, Vortex.

Glad i wasnt the only one scratching my head when i read that email! Being somewhat new around here, thats the first time i received something like that.

Now reading all the above, i just jumped on the deal! If you have amazon prime, its a No Brainer! Nothing to lose for what looks like a nice binocular for free! 

Looking forward to that paypal refund. :good::icon_e_biggrin::p

So did I!  If Maks says they are good, I believe him.....For a price of $0.00, you can't go wrong!:)

I just ordered a pair and submitted the order # etc so let's see how this works out.  Could always use a good pair of binos

@Maksim

I just realized when i ordered, i ordered like usual with my amazon prime, that then takes the money directly from my checking account. So these binocs were not paid for via PayPal. Is that an issue as the email states that the refund is issued through PayPal? SHould i cancel my order; rebuy the binocs, and then look for a paypal option at amazons checkout?

 

Thanks

Ron

Me neither'....

Me neither, and it's been a couple of days, which I understand if not automated some how; lf you're doing it one by one, manually. They should be here today, shipped a day later than initially commented by Amazon. 

Thanks for the offer!

FYI, I read all the feeds and etc., I tend to stay out of online social media other than to stay informed and appreciate the posts, emails/feeds, all the great, *accurate information. 
  -- I tend to write to much and it bothers folks, so, I just don't, or stay to my "writers forums"  :)

Received the binocs this morning and I am quite surprised at the optical quality at this price point. The phone adapter (which actually works!) is a nice addition. Posted a good review. Will use them turkey hunting this spring. No refund yet but I'm sure I'll see it in a few days. Thanks!

Hey guys.  About 25% of the folks got their refund already... those were the folks who ordered early and live in a 1 day (or same day) delivery range...

Reason why I said 24 to 48 hours after they ship... your card generally does not get charged by Amazon until they start shipping it.  It is only at that point that the seller actually gets paid and can see the total you paid with taxes and all.  Until it ships, you can still have it cancelled.  Christmas was a holiday.

So everyone else should be getting a refund within 24 hours or so. (who has not yet.)

I have a spreadsheet and keeping track.  Keep in mind, company is in Asia so their hours are different from ours.  But so far about 40 people have gotten these and have all gotten their refunds, so nothing to worry about, and you can always send me an email and will track for you.

Will this only work with a Paypal account?

The refund would go through Paypal... but shoot me a pm and can discuss.  Possibly can get you an Amazon GC.

Btw, for those receiving the binos, wait a few days before leaving the review. =)

Just got confirms that essentially everyone was sent a refund by now... only 4 outstanding that were not delivered or shipped yet.

    • I would be happy to have her.
    • The Lone Ranger was ambushed and captured by an enemy Indian War Party. The Indian Chief proclaims, "So, you are the great Lone Ranger"... "In honor of the Harvest Festival, YOU will be executed in three days." "Before I kill you, I grant you three requests" "What is your FIRST request?' The Lone Ranger responds, "I'd like to speak to my horse." The Chief nods and Silver is brought before the Lone Ranger who whispers in Silver's ear, and the horse gallops away. Later that evening, Silver returns with a beautiful blonde woman on his back. As the Indian Chief watches, the blonde enters the Lone Ranger's tent and spends the night. The next morning the Indian Chief admits he's impressed. "You have a very fine and loyal horse", "But I will still kill you in two days." "What is your SECOND request?" The Lone Ranger again asks to speak to his horse. Silver is brought to him, and he again whispers in the horse's ear. As before, Silver takes off and disappears over the horizon. Later that evening, to the Chief's surprise, Silver again returns, this time with a voluptuous brunette, more attractive than the blonde. She enters the Lone Rangers tent and spends the night. The following morning the Indian Chief is again impressed. "You are indeed a man of many talents," "But I will still kill you tomorrow." "What is your LAST request?" The Lone Ranger responds, "I'd like to speak to my horse...alone." The Chief is curious, but he agrees, and Silver is brought to the Lone Ranger's tent. Once they're alone, the Lone Ranger grabs Silver by both ears, looks him square in the eye and says, "Listen Very Carefully!!! FOR...THE...LAST...TIME.. "BRING POSSE!"
    • Good question! Id like to know too! I only found that link from a REDDIT post and recommendation. It sounds like its a popular budget purchase; similar to PSA. I can only assume the quality is similar too..  So, not bad and good for fun range toy; but not competition quality..
    • After the unpleasantness(no electricity, no heat, no open gas stations, ...)  of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy,  I took preparedness much more seriously than ever before.   Vowed to be able to shelter in for two weeks without food stores, utility power, etc..  (I envy those of you who are prepared for a 3 month situation.)  I had acquired supplies spanning categories including emergency food, water, lighting, hygiene, medical supplies, communication, and of course, security; among others. A representative partial list of them are below. The sheep are already beginning to get restless/spooked.  I can envision a point very soon where that will increase exponentially.  By then you will have missed your window of opportunity to prepare.  Noticed this evening that almost every emergency food item at Wise (wisefoodstorage.com) is listed as "Stock is low" and in your Shopping Cart it also states "Stock is low.  Allow 2-3 weeks for delivery."  Will be interesting to see if this changes to "Out of stock" at some point. I already have Wise food on hand.    - Several days ago, I explicitly informed all my adult children that if they had not yet given thought to preparedness for their families, NOW would be a really good time to do so. One should also consider the potential for more complex scenarios such as a bad storm impacting electricity or a late March deep freeze causing broken water mains and impact on water supply to your home, etc.  COUPLED with limited utility crews available to respond due to the impact of the virus.  - Some of the OTC medical supplies I had previously  purchased and stored had gone well past their expiration date.  I checked them all several days ago, discarded them where appropriate, and backfilled them (Costco and Walgreens).   - We always refill our cars before they reach half a tank.  That gas also represents spare fuel for my generator if needed. - If you have prescription refills available (e.g. antibiotics)  you might want to consider refilling them proactively. - Have plenty of first aid supplies on hand such as: first aid kits, Neosporin, rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxine, etc on hand.  Same goes for children and infant strengths of those where appropriate. - Extra paper towels, toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, laundry detergent, etc.   - Baby wipes for personal hygiene, especially handy if there is any interruption to water supplies.   - Plenty of kitchen garbage bags and large contractor garbage bags, in the event of garbage pickup interruption. - Paper plates, plastic cutlery, etc. - Triple set of spare batteries for every flashlight, radio, radio scanner, smoke/fire detector, CO detector in my home. - Clorox disinfectant wipes. - Purchased an additional propane tank for my grill.   Going tomorrow to refill several empties that I have in my shed. - Cash money on hand in the event banks or ATMs close. Lastly, given this is a Firearms forum, I assume everyone is prepared from a "security" perspective.  A few years ago, I recall someone posting here a picture of a mob of customers at Walmart fighting to get a TV on Black Friday.  Imagine what they would do if it were for food.
