Why I do not recommend Avechi anymore


#82

Now No. 2, ahead of Facebook & Standard Media

How Avechi has not done something about the discussion is curious. Is it that the general public doesn’t read Techweez when deciding where to buy phones or Techwees readers are not their target market, or… ?

Avechi uses some fancy ads and baits like 3-hour delivery in the CBD and fake promos to lure customers. I have even shared this forum thread on all their Facebook campaigns. Off late, they have sponsored a number of articles on the Standard news website. Standard has also shared those articles on their fanpages to which I gladly share this thread. They’re taking advantage of vulnerable clients.

Yup! If you don’t search online for reviews this is how they will get you. They spend lots of money.


#85

Shipped directly from manufacturer :laughing::laughing::laughing:

Very few kenyans buy phones online, most that do first check GSMarena, Jumia, OLX or price in Kenya before going ut knowing very well which phone they will get, so it’s sad that Avechi is screwing the few clients that they manage to get.

They have blocked me from their wall. hahaha


#88

i guess this means i am avoiding avechi going forward…

Maybe the wrong forum but, I happened to pass by LG Kenya online brand shop and saw this


See the fridge is 10% off, I decide to check the daily deals in depth and I see this

99.98% off which means the fridge is 10 Bob, alright I decide to try ordering the item, the process goes on fine
And I even get an order confirmation email with a 20 Bob invoice 10 Bob for the fridge and 10 Bob for shipping

So basically I am waiting to receive my fridge anytime, unless it’s an error on their side, guess you should try it just for fun, it might turn out to be true

You are either very lucky or someone is preparing an explanation why they won’t be shipping you a fridge.

I went there and it was 10% off.

Well, I think it must be a website upgrade mishap, but if it was a real deal then I shall be very happy.
