What You Need To Know Before Buying A Temu microSD Card For Your Nintendo Switch
If you were on TikTok or YouTube at all in Q4 2023 or Q1 2024, chances are you’ve seen advertisements for products sold through Temu. The aggressive advertising led to Temu being the most downloaded free app across all mobile platforms and with good reason. Temu promises heavy discounts on everything from off-brand gaming peripherals to women’s apparel, a practice that may sound familiar from its oft-criticized competitor site, AliExpress.
Temu’s practices are similar to AliExpress, though it tends to be cheaper, offers faster and more accurate shipping times, and credits for delivery delays. For all the perks that may come with shopping on Temu’s marketplace, the red flags start waving when you look at the site’s Better Business Bureau (BBB) profile. In 2023, the company received over 1,580 complaints and holds a 2.5 out of 5-star rating.
However, it’s worth noting that, after scrolling through many of the low reviews, product quality rarely comes up. Many of the complaints are about the website’s customer service, shipping issues, and accounting errors. While those are troublesome, unlike AliExpress and its D- BBB rating, Temu actually responds to customer complaints, albeit with canned responses. It’s still something, and that $20 1TB microSD card may seem enticing enough to ignore the risks, but we wouldn’t rush to a purchase yet.
