Red Save Review


GASP! A reviewer’s biggest nemesis – no about us page! However, can I tell you their history?! Oh well, let’s just stick to the site itself. Red Save offer a different way to buy your toys and gadgets. Basically they offer what they call the ‘RedSave Pass’ free for 30 days, then £19.95 every month afterwards. This pass entitles you to huge savings across the site, often over 50%…great for Christmas gifts, but let’s delve deeper and see what else they do.

Well, if you’re looking for a trampoline, tellytubby, digital photo frame, widescreen TV or the award winning Doctor Who toys….RedSave sell it. Their warehouse must be some size to store everything because the categories alone are mind-boggling! As an example, the top ten best sellers range from MP3 players, to RC helicopters, to Mood Beams and Scooters. We’re a cynical bunch at ToyHype, but even we were impressed.

Doctor Who ToysUsability
Once you get your head round the pricing structure, the navigation is straightforward with a simple menu on the left hand side with every category listed. Nothing fancy, no gift finders or special browse tools – just simple, no fuss menus.

RC HelicoptersRegistration and Checkout
One click to checkout! That’s a first. Although the feeling of speed is mostly because the registration page comes after instead of before the checkout view. However, it is just a 3 step process, so still much smoother than most. Page 2 is for delivery details and 3 is for your credit card details.

UK delivery is 3-5 working days and costs £3.95 no matter what the size, which is brilliant if it’s a fullsize trampoline, but not so good if it’s a pack of golf balls. They also offer European and Worldwide delivery options which is good to see.

RedSave are part of the Nettexmedia group and are based in Dorset.

The range alone is worth a visit. If you buy a lot of pressies, or even if you’re planning Christmas early, their RedSave scheme is definitely worth a look. Also they are very proud of their secure checkout system (McAfee and GeoTrust certified) and you can read all about it on the site. So check it out and don’t forget to let us know your opinion of
