I wanted to buy exam voucher from whizlabs and this is what I went through.
Anybody had better/worse experience to resolve it with whizlabs (Note: the supervisor himself admits the mistakes on chat)

Please wait for a site operator to respond.

Chat InformationYou are now chatting with 'Whizlabs'

Chat InformationYour Issue ID for this chat is LTK16402409727X

Whizlabs: Hi,

Whizlabs: This is raj,how may i help you.

you: Hi

you: The price for SCEA voucher was mentioned on site as $ 300 until yesterday

you: today it says 199.95

Whizlabs: yes ,

you: its same price as at sun's site

you: whats the benefit of buying from whizlabs?

Whizlabs: we are providing the voucher at discounted price

you: btw, this change happened when I asked this question yesterday

you: how much discount?

you: ??

you: Sun site link:

Whizlabs: the price of SCEA mock exam part 1 on sun website is USD 200 $

Whizlabs: we are providing Sun voucher for SCEA part 1 at the price of 150 $

you: where is this mentioned on your site?

Whizlabs: may i have your email id,i can send you the money request from can make the payment and as soon your payment is confirmed ,you will recieve the voucher through email.

you: also, today, I got email from Sudeepa Basu of whizlabs team saying "Sun Java Exam Vouchers for any 310-XXX Exam - at 33% Discount! Voucher Valid till 10th November 2009. Only 50 vouchers in stock"

Whizlabs: yes.

you: so you don't mention it on your website?

Whizlabs: we have just todat changed the price,on website it will be changed tommorow.

you: k

you: so, if I go by Sudeepa's email, the voucher should cost be $134 (33% discount on original price of $200)

Whizlabs: sorry we are providing the sun voucher for SCEA at the cost of USD 150$.

you: but SCEA exam # is 310-052 which should be covered as per Sudeepa's email

Whizlabs: the mail is sent by mistake,this offer is for scjp exam

you: far whizlabs made 3 mistakes, 1. Price of SCEA was mentioned as $300 until yesterday while Sun itself was selling the voucher for $200 2. Today, your site said price of SCEA examas $199.95 without discount and somehow you are selling it for $150 3. One of your team members sends me an email with 33% discount for all Sun's 310-xxx exam you say email is wrong

you: should I believe you?

you: can I talk/chat to your supervisor?

Whizlabs: i am the supervisor.

you: then...can I talk to your manager?

Whizlabs: Please have a talk with me,i can solve your issues.

you: or answer the questions I posted here

Whizlabs: yes.

Whizlabs: its by techninal mistake the price is visible.

you: I mentioned 3 mistakes, and I am asking why should I believe in such business and on what basis?

Whizlabs: i can assure you the the price of the Voucher for SCEA part 1 ia 150$.

Whizlabs: I can send you the money request and then you can make the payment and then i will send you the voucher through email.

you: money request?

you: I don't want any payment links on email

Whizlabs: i can send you the money request from paypal.

Whizlabs: ok,you can make the payment on our website and i will refund you 49.95$

i had a good experience with whizlabs. I didnt try for SCEA, but for previous certifications, i found them professional.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
