We’ve been looking into a lot of scam websites lately, so we decided, why not find something legit to look into. And so GeekBuying came as something for us to review, and check out.
Is GeekBuying a scam? Or are their discounts legit? That is just what we’re going to be looking at, as we sort through who GeekBuying is exactly, what they have to offer, and how you take action on the many low prices they have to offer!
What Is GeekBuying?
We’ll start off with what GeekBuying isn’t. It isn’t a place where only geeky people shop, and it’s definitely not a place that only has geeky technology.
GeekBuying is a site that tries to bring all the latest gadgets and gizmos to an unbeatable price by offering discounts and low prices. At least, that’s what their About Us page says.
But gadgets aren’t the only thing they sell. They have a large collection of brands of clothing, different types of car accessories, and even Home and Garden products!
GeekBuying’s Brands And Deals
GeekBuying has a large collection of brands that they sell, some well-known, and others less known. Popular brands include Philips, Asus, Vivo, and Emax.
But their large collection of brands aren’t the only thing that GeekBuying has to offer.
The cool thing with GeekBuying is that they are always offering things with discounts, flash deals, and leaving things on their Clearance page. So there is always something you can find for a low price.
Another cool feature with GeekBuying is that they have flash sales, similar to what is shown above. So for several days they have a list of different gadgets and other tech related products on sale.
But what is even more cool is that they have a list of products that will be part of their next flash deal. So there is no need to have to guess on what will be in the next latest deal. If there is anything you want, just leave yourself a note, and check GeekBuying in the next couple of days.
Clearance By Price
On their clearance page, GeekBuying has that great function of being able to sort prices and see what’s for sale with a specific price range. We don’t know about you, but this is a great feature that we specifically like about this site.
Usually, when we’re looking for something, we have a specific budget, and a specific amount that we can spend. Using this function can help us weed out those products that we can’t really purchase, due to how much they would cost.
Another nice thing about this is that you can find different products of similar value. That way, if you have an idea of what you want to purchase, but are looking for alternative prices, then you can use this function to do just that.
If you’re looking for a place where you can find discounts, then GeekBuying is the place to go. Not everything is going to heavily discounted, but many things are. The majority of products that we looked at were over 30%.
There were things discounted up towards 60%-70%, with only a few things discounted as low as 20%. Our guess is that the average discount is between 30% to 40%.
And the discounts aren’t for a specific brand or product. They are for nearly every category on their shop. Whether you were looking for a discount in their Home and Garden section, or looking for those low prices in their fashion section, you will definitely be able to find a discount.
Social Media And Reviews
When looking at a site to make sure it’s not a scam, you must always check anything and everything. And one of the many things we check is a company’s social media accounts, and any reviews that we can find about them.
Many times, scammers will pretend to have social media buttons on their site, but not actually link to anything. Thankfully, GeekBuying is not like that.
As you can see from the above screenshot, we can clearly see that GeekBuying is on Instagram. Not only that, but they have quite a large following as well. This helps show their authenticity and their legitimacy.
And what adds even more authority to them being legit is that on all their social media accounts, they are actively posting things, showing that they are still around, and still there to help people.
Now, while they are actively promoting on social media, keeping things up-to-date, and showing their authenticity, what do other people have to say about them? Are there reviews out there by other people, on how good or bad GeekBuying really is?
Actually there are. The place we’ll be looking at specifically is a place called ResellerRatings.
ResellerRatings gives GeekBuying a 9.31 rating out of 10. With over 12K of reviews, and the majority of them 5 stars, there really isn’t much that people don’t like about GeekBuying.
Not only that, but with these types of review places, there is a feature that allows the business to reply back to people or reviews that put them in a negative light. And GeekBuying utilizes this feature to the best of its ability.
Looking over the past few months, you can see that they try their best to answer anyone’s complaints or issues. And most of those lower reviews are people who do say that everything did turn out okay for them in the end.
So overall, GeekBuying is definitely not trying to intentionally scam people out of products or money. And they are definitely not doing a bad job at what they’re doing, since there are thousands of reviews noting that they were satisfied with what they ordered.
Where is GeekBuying Located?
GeekBuying is a store that resells other brand’s products, so they aren’t exactly located in one location. They have warehouses all over the world, in Spain, America, Italy, Germany, and Poland. Their main warehouses are in Hong Kong and China, where they can ship internationally, if need be.
GeekBuying is owned and operated by HONGKONG GEEKBUY INTERNATIONAL E-COMMERCE LIMITED. Now, nothing is wrong with this company. There is just one thing that we do want to point out, so as not to leave people in the dark.
If you haven’t noticed yet, GeekBuying is mainly located in Hong Kong and China, and their products are mainly manufactured in China.
Again, nothing is wrong with this. But because of this, there might be brands that were manufactured cheaply, or products that take a while to get to you.
Most of the reviews didn’t suggest this, but with products from China, there is always a possibility of getting something this isn’t completely up to the standards of quality that most people like.
Is GeekBuying A Scam?
GeekBuying is definitely no scam. We would wholeheartedly purchase from them in a heartbeat. They are who they claim to be. No more, no less.
They have a ton of positive reviews for their site. They’ve been around for a long while, and they definitely aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
They have discounts for every category they put on their website, as well as the ability to sell products at a wholesale price. They even have student discounts for those still in school!
So, all in all, GeekBuying is a great place to go and find a product that you’ve been wanting for a cheaper price. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
