This is also available on ebay for $44.99 from buy (Rakuten) for a safer purchase option.

Yeah maybe the majority of the negative reviews are for the reseller on Rakuten, not actually Rakuten itself.

I'm not sure if those reviews are legit, but I know a lot of shady third party sellers have been on Rakuten for a while and they (Rakuten) didn't do anything about it, which might explain the bad reviews. 

Buy.com and a bunch of other retailers merged to form Rakuten, so I'd think that buying from Rakuten itself would be ok.

All I know is their checkout and signing up process was a pain in my ass, and they now have two of my emails to spam at their leisure, so I'm going to take the chance and keep the dang order.

 

Regardless of the quality of the site, thanks for the deal guys, I really needed a second controller.

honestly if you use Paypal you should be alright I ordered a DS4 for 35$ PS controllers usually never go on sale unless you do the deal where you buy a new ps4 and get a new controller for 20$

I was sold a knock off PS3 controller from that place when it said it was 100% Authentic from Sony. It wasn't. Lucky for me I got my money back because I used Paypal. I never shopped there again, avoid it. It's not worth the hassle.

lots of reports of stolen cc in the past if you check slickdeals. Make sure to use paypal if you decide to buy.

 

I still have 60$ newegg gc from the 25/5 deal few wks ago so I just bought ds4 with free turtle p4c. Maybe I can sell p4c to keep the ds4 cost down or use it...

Thanks OP, grabbed one.  I never had a bad experience with Buy.com so I'll take my chances..  Great price for a 2nd DS4.  Final price $34.99.

Never had a problem with Buy.com before. Went ahead and snagged 2 for $87 after tax. Not bad.

I picked up a Xbox One controller for $34.99 shipped. If there are any issues I can just file a claim through my credit card company.

Still too much for a controller that has peeling analogs. Happened to two of my controllers in less than a week of use.

I thought that was only an issue with launch systems.
