I would absolutely NOT recommend BitsAndKits at all. They are spammers. I have received their spam emails for years, despite many attempts to unsubscribe. The bottom of their latest spam from February 1st 2016 states:

Quote:

feel that you have received this email in error, please send an email to

This e-mail is sent in accordance with the US CAN-SPAM Law in effect

and respected.
Yeah right...

Quote:

I have of course tried all their email addresses that I could find. This spammer is the most persistent of all I have experienced. I've even tried reported them to the authorities years ago, but no word back.

F*cking spammers..

Just a follow up; I received my order last week. All was in order.

Will order again in the future.

It averages out at about one email a week, by my reckoning. While it may be hard to unsubscribe from his emails, it is nowhere close to spamming. And considering the emails are actually informing you of restocks or sales deals, if you are a keen hobbiest this info can be very handy if you are trying to find some hard to find pieces before they are sold out. I've used his site many, many times, and never had a problem.

It's impossible to unsubscribe. They still show up in my junk mail despite at least a half dozen attempts both here and via e-mail to contact Bits.

If it isn't spam it's harassment. I said no god damn it

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

spam (spăm)
n.
1. Unsolicited e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups; junk e-mail.
2. A single piece of such e-mail: "receiving dozens of spams a day" (George Johnson).
tr.v. spammed, spam·ming, spams
1. To send unsolicited e-mail to.
2. To send (a message) indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups.

as soon as people have tried to unsubscribe to no effect, and made it clear they do not want to receive E-mails anymore. it is definetly spam.

but that besides, customer contact is non existent these days. which is a shame, it used to be different. tho mistakes are rare and far in between so ordering from them is fairly safe.

Spam (stylised SPAM) is a brand of precooked canned meats by the Hormel Food Corporation. First introduced in 1937 and gained world wide popularity after its use in world war two. Over 7 billion cans sold, and part of my units "all in one" dinners we enjoyed in Afghanistan!

Goes to my junk inbox. The one I don't give a flying fuck about.

The site is what it is, and you can get lots of stuff. Who gives a fuck if my junk folder had one more email a week to go with the countless others.

Out of curiosity, how often do you restock stuff?

I have been coming back to the site at least twice a week for Ork Warbike legs, but have been out of them for some time....

It sucks because I have bought stuff from the site for a while, and quite literally no one has any of these in stock.... I would think of all companies, you guys would have them!
