This site is really good is your a buyer looking for a bargain buy. Although you should be wary or bad sellers that sell fake stuff, don't ship on time or are just silly. But I've had some good sellers on there, once I ordered a yoshi bag for a tenner(ish) and got it the very next morning! :D

BUT, if you're a normal person looking to sell some old stuff from the attic or under the bed then I'm not so keen. There are so many fees involved in selling your item and I think the percentage they take off your final sale price is really cheeky! I sold a kinect on there and was amazed at the difference in the sale price to the price I got after the fees were took off. I'm sure it's an amazing site for business's.

This site is really cool! I used it to watch Death Note after I couldn't find any subbed episodes on youtube any more. My favourite thing has to be that it gives you the option of watching subbed or dubbed episodes in different languages. I was also really iffy because of the guy below who said about a Trojan on his computer, but I didn't get anything and I watched over 30 different videos. Anybody who loves anime should check this site out.

THIS SITE IS A M A Z I N G! I use it to learn Japanese and I have learnt so many words from it, my vocabulary has greatly improved since using it. This site doesn't only have Japanese it has other languages such as Greek, Spanish, French, German, Chinese etc.

The interface for it is so simple and easy to understand. I love the stars and points system they have as it gives you a sense of achievement and allows you to track your progress. You can also see your rank worldwide, in your country and in your school/institution, which adds a nice competitive element to it.Plus every year they have a giant worldwide competition where everyone can compete to great prizes ( which is pretty cool, you get awarded for learning! what more do you want?! :D )

My only criticism (all those not interested in Japanese on this site have no need to read) is that with the Japanese part it is really really nit picky of spellings of words and sometimes when you get it right it tells you your are wrong. And it won't let you type certain words in kanji that you need to. This gets reeeeally stressful. But you can submit a request to have it corrected (you just click i'm write, 5 second process!) and they will email when they have looked at it and done it for you. But other than that you just ignored that and carry on :)

Another thing I think is really good is that you can use lists that have already been made by other people, students and teachers. Or you create your own list of words you want to learn and make the learning experience more personal to yourself!

Overall I reckon language perfect is the best site to learn vocabulary out there (maybe not so much grammar) and I would highly recommend using it!

I wanted to order a teen titans comic (http://forbiddenplanet.com/18396-teen-titans-volume-2-family-lost/) from these guys and it was fairly cheap online and my local store didn't have it so I thought I'd give it a go. But it said "Order on request. Expected delivery time is 21 days." which was fair enough I could wait. But after a MONTH AND A HALF there was nothing. Finally got in touch with them and got told that they wouldn't be able to get it as it wasn't in print any more apparently. I completely understand that it not being in print isn't their fault, but for it to take a month and a half to find out (and me having to contact them!) I was not impressed. I cancelled my order and went onto find the comic for sale on ebay.

I'm sure they sell good stuff, but in my opinion and experience I wouldn't order from these guys again. Their stores are amazing with nice people, but as for the online service, it's a bit naff. I'd stick to going into the store.

Stay away from this site! They are absolute con artists! I spent a year with earning enough PTZ (their currency) to get an xbox kinect for free. When I ordered my kinect it went through fine, and then all of a sudden my order was denied and I got accused of cheating and they said they wouldn't refund my PTZ as my account had been accused of fraudulent activity.

I sent in a message to them asking about it and they closed my enquiry immediately without replying. I then sent in another (very angry) message with a legal letter threatening legal action (my big sister was training to be a lawyer and wrote a very good one for me). They replied to this and after about a week of waiting they said my account wasn't involved in fraud. They gave my PTZ back and allowed me to re-order my kinect which I got a few weeks later (Now sold it for some extra money).

However I would strongly advise STAYING AWAY from this site. The only reason I got my kinect was because I scared them into giving me it. They are scammers. They've changed their site from giving free stuff to discounts now, but I'd still stay away as it's not worth it. Go ahead and spend a year to get a $1 or £1 off an xbox 360 or PS3 but in my opinion it's not worth it. Somebody needs to really investigate these guys!

When I first signed up to points2shop I was extremely sceptical about this site. I'd recently moved from a site called Lockerz (I'd had conflicts with them over getting a prize which resulted in me threatening legal action to cough up) so GPT sites weren't in my best opinion at that moment in time. But I searched around P2S and gave it a shot. When I first signed up, earned some really easy points and placed my first order! I was very impressed! Until they went and banned me. But unlike many internet noobs I sent in a support ticket and solved the problem with them civilly. It turned out my older brother had previously created an account with them. After verifying my ID they closed my brothers account (with his permission) and reopened mine. P2S may be strict on rules but this is just to make the experience fair for everyone. So if you do ever get banned just send in a ticket be nice and co-operative with them and the problem will get sorted!

Not only does P2S give you cool earning opportunities through doing surveys & offers but they host tons of competitions! You can win for referring people, earning the most, doing daily surveys, completing offers and competing in the team merit contest. I'd be lying if I told you the site was perfect, one criticism I have about the site is that communication of the admin to members about issues is awful and pretty much non-existent. No official messages or forum posts are given from the site. At the moment they have been "updating" to a new layout for months and there are so many technical issues. I get that they probably are working on thing. And occasionally in support tickets you do get "copy and paste" replies which don't answer your question. If technical issues and the problems with communicating were fixed all would be good. The new quality score system they have and the penalties they have for it is in my opinion far to strict. I understand wanting quality answers, but it's too strict and sensitive a system.

Despite the criticisms, P2S has not only given me the opportunity to earn some free stuff it's gave me a chance to meet some great people and become a part of a pretty decent online community. I would highly recommend checking it out and giving it a shot.
