Is http://www.kinguin.co.uk/ safe?

I'm just about to buy a Grid 2 CD Key from http://www.kinguin.co.uk/

It's at a decent price however has anyone used this website before? Is it legit?

Cheers

Never heard of them before mate, site looks okay, but If I can't find a registered address for the company I never bother...

I've used them a few times. From what I can remember it's a bit like eBay and you are just buying the product through them rather than from them - they just list other people/places selling it.

I've just checked out anyway so I'll see however I think you're right Bubby. They act as a reseller rather than the direct sellers.

EDIT - Wow, got the key instantly and activated on Steam. Good stuff.

Any idea how those 60 day SWTOR time cards work? as they are mega cheap. Do they jut sent you a scan of the key or something or will they ship the actual card? Had a look at the redemption instructions but it just tells you how to redeem the code.

They are really good, and if you are after a game that was on a previous Humble sale - you might be in for a surprise

People buying DLC keys should have this in their favourites:

http://www.dlcompare.com/

Because of this site, I ordered Dawnguard and Dragonborn for 5.77 each, instead of 13.99 each had I gone directly through Steam. From hitting the confirm button to having the keys in Steam and and the download under way was less than a couple of minutes.
