Reliablity of DealTime
Dealtime has a new feature in which they have a certification program. I recently purchased from a vendor (Beach Camera) that had their certification. I called and was assured that the items I was purchasing were in stock and would go out promptly. I have subsequently called twice over 10 days and the items still have not been shipped. Apparently they did not have the camera in stock. I then checked out the reviews of some of the vendors with DealTime's certification and found that I was not alone in having problems with mis-reprensentation over availability of items.
Dealtime needs to be a little more rigorous about this stuff to maintain their credibility.
