Ordered deal of the day product. Showing mfg Aug 2019,expiry jul 2021.

Seems like they are shipping off unsold products at deep discounts.

Should i complain and ask for a replacement?

You don’t get great discounts on fresh items.

@adrishya I am guessing you bought this product from Amazon since you haven’t mentioned that. In amazon, the best before or the expiry date is mentioned in the product description. e.g. for this product https://www.amazon.in/WOW-Vinegar-Sulphate-Para..., the date is mentioned as “Best Before: 30 Sep 2022”

What was the date mentioned for the deal of the day product that you bought at the time of purchase?

Oh ok. Then it’s indeed surprising that the manufacturer itself has not provided fresh stock. I guess if you indeed got a deep discount and you bought the product with the intention of using it and not at the spur of the moment seeing the sale, you can easily use it within the remaining 7 months.

Also, note that if the word says “Best Before Date” and not “Expiry Date” on the label then there is no need to worry and the product will not be harmful to use even after the mentioned date. It’s just that product will not be at its 100% quality after that date.

P.S. Since you got the product at a deep discount and do decide not to use it since you got a more than a year-old product, you can directly complain to the manufacturer and try to get a replacement or refund. If they deny or send the old stock again, you can donate the product to your domestic help.

When you go to shoppersstop and pantaloons, you get discounted items and “fresh stock” with no discount. discount is generally on old stock only. they also mention no return/no refund and people still buy. when you go to vegetable markets, same thing happens, fresh ones fetch higher price.
you paid less and got older stock but stock that is still valid for more than 6 months. you got what you paid for. if you want fresh stock, pay full price and buy one.

Agree but am shocked to see ppl in this platform are actually okay with this. Just because u are getting something for a discount doesn’t mean they can ship anything to u. Remember you are still paying for it. Fail to understand the laid back attitude of indian customers wherein they’ll be okay with anything as long as its cheap. Half the ppl wud remain silent even after being duped. Half of them wouldn’t have heard of a thing called consumer court. Just because we are indians doesn’t mean you can dump anything on us and we’ll compromise. If you are getting a product or service make sure its what u were promised, nothing less.

Have you ever purchased from Mamaearth during their OMG sale i.e. the sale where they literally give “buy 1 get 1 free” product? I have bought items from them many times during such sales and have never received a product that is more than 3-4 months old than the purchase date. They are giving a 100% discount here but still giving a product from the latest stock.

I believe it all depends on the company and its outlook and strategies. If this so-called WoW Science would have clearly mentioned the best before/expiry date of the product on their website, then it would have been a more fair move from them. Hiding such important information from a product being sold online and that has a certain shelf life is not a good trait. I like that Amazon has started following this practice on their products where they mention the expiry date or the best before date in the product description. So you know exactly the kind of stock you are buying.

I have bought from their physical store but not online. They earlier mainly showcased preservative free products and baby products. For preservative free products, the shelf life is less and even 4 mth old product is “very old”. However, as you have not indicated the type of product purchased, can not comment on your specific purchase.
Also, what a company considers as “old” stock differs from company to company.
