    Anybody ever order anything from wish.com? I heard about this site a couple of months ago but I just got around to looking at it today. I ordered a 32 inch LCD TV for $1.

    A drone with a camera for $1.90.

    A looper pedal for $35 ($47 with shipping)

    Then I went back after the game and ordered an Ultra-thin quad core laptop with Windows 10 for $2.85 ($5.00 with shipping)

    Then I saw another laptop that looked a little better. Was $2 with free shipping so I ordered 5.

    And a few other things. All together I spent almost $100. If the stuff is worth a shit at all I can sell some of the laptops cheap and make a good profit. The site is addicting. I better stay away until I find out whether I've been ripped off.

    I’ve ordered stuff from there. I think ordered a shirt once and it was like made for a pygmy or something. It was very small.

    I looked at some reviews. One said that the clothing is likely to be small because the sizes are for Asians who tend to be smaller than Americans. I had ordered some pants before I saw that.

    Basically the site is something a bit like Amazon where when you buy something you are actually buying it from a 3rd party. Some of the items have to be shipped from China and might take a few weeks. Others are from American sources and take less time. The confirmation email I got from the looper pedal order said I should receive it from April 20th to April 22nd. I hope the mean this year. The others of my orders said they would be "processed" between April 16 and April 18. According to one review you are supposed to get the tracking numbers for anything you order when it has been shipped.

    I got the looper pedal Friday. I works. It takes a 9 volt power supply that was not included. I couldn't find one that worked until I went to Guitar Center and bought one for $20. It will power up to 8 pedals so I shouldn't have to ever buy another one.

    The rest of my items have left China bound for the USA.

    The drone was 4 tiny propellers. The tactical backpack and laptop bag with USB charger was just the charger. I did get a watch for $1 that works.
