"I've recently made a purchase at Magic Depot, only to learn after ordering there was a slight delay in processing my order due to some unforeseen issues. The problem, if not resolved, could be a show-stopper for my upcoming gig. Having learned of the matter, Aaron Smith pesonally took it upon himself to swiftly resolve the problem AND upgrade shipping to priority mail (at no extra cost to me) so I can receive the items on time. Yes, the items arrived on time and Aaron saved the day. If what Aaron did isn't "magic," what is? Aaron, your excellent customer service and products are chief reasons I'm a repeated customer to the MAGIC DEPOT. Thank you!!
– Stephen Liddell
Outstanding! Thanks Aaron. You guys deal with issues head on, professionally and promptly.
– Gayle, Portland, OR
I needed magic wands for my kiddos by Christmas and I only had 5 days left - you guys made me the best Santa ever!!!! Thank you for your individual service!
– John Ace, United States
The Magic Depot is my favorite company to buy from. You all have wonderful service and I will always buy from you guys!
– Pastor Vince Sigel, Griffin
I am a childrens Pastor and use a lot of Illustrations when I preach... The Magic Depot has always had that WOW Illusion I have needed to get the word acrossed.. I have used them and am using them now , and will continue to use them.. their customer service is above excellent !!!
Thank you Pastor Vince Sigel
– Jeff Roulier, Schenectady
I rarely write things like this, but one should give credit where credit is due. Aaron's customer service is the best in the business. You can buy from The Magic Depot without fear. The products are top notch, and should you have an issue, Aaron goes above and beyond to make it right. The Magic Depot is a paradigm for what every business should be. Thank you, Aarron and Jenne!
– kaiwen, lauderhill
quality of the product is contented, but seems the back order product is a bit long to wait
– r garton, hobart, tasmania
i'm no magician (not since kid days) and just wanted some goofy things to play with. i wasn't disappointed from the description of the product to playing with it when it arrived. i've even worked up a whole act for the one little trick. so there's lots of value here for the passer-by too.
– Patrick, TAHITI
Hi; I’m from Tahiti, French Polynesia, if it takes generally three weeks for shipping (for all international orders); I can say that Magic Depot and Aaron's team is one of the best magic dealer. I have now placed several orders and I think that will be continuing!
– harry, seminole, fl
There was a little glitch in my order, but it was taken care of before I could say "Abracadabra!" I am very pleased with the products, prices, and service.
– Jonathan, Bradenton, Florida
MAGIC DEPOT is the real deal! I wouldnt shop anywhere else. They have the best customer service i have ever seen a store have. Hundred thumbs up and keep up the good work!
– John Ace, Orlando
The Magic Depot will not rip you off like other magic shops tend to do! I saved so much money and bought the best of the best illusions! This is the best company I have ever bought magic from! Good job magic depot!
– Dan Shriver, California
I received a product broken in shipping and The Magic Depot replaced it with NO PROBLEMS!! Thanks again Magic Depot!!! Good People!!!!!! God Bless!!!
– Brett Mead, Warner Robins
Magic Depot is a great website to get my card magic items from. They have alot of items that other places dont and Aaron Smith is a great guy. An item from my order was out of stock for a few days so Mr. Smith said he would send me a gift for the delay and sure enough he kept his word. I would recommend this website to anyone. Thanks again Aaron. Magic Depot is great!
– Nick Borja, Chino Valley
I just got my order of "Rocky" the spring raccoon and started some "tricks" with it. I'm extremely pleased with the realistic appearance and movement "Rocky" exhibits. No doubt this gadget will spice up my performance with my audience (kids) in Vacation Bible Schools for years to come. Thank you Aaron, your products speak well of you and your company. -- Nick ("The Great Spumoni")
– James Krauth, Covington
Magic Depot is one of the best magic sites I have ever been to. They have great amounts of choices and all are quick and easy to get to. Aaron just gives you items that you want not what they want to sell. Plus, the shipping is amazing when we ordered it can within 2 days. I have bought many things online from many stores and never had it delivered that fast. I just love this website!!
– matthew, Delray Beach
I work as a bartender and decided to add some magic to entertain my customers. The products that I ordered from the Magic Depot did just that. My order was delivered extremly fast iI would recommend this to any one that is in the market for magic supplies. I will be a return customer for all my needs
– Ray Miller, Boise
My thanks go out to Aaron Smith for developing one of the better magic sites on the Net. It is informative in a good way due to the layout and the way each 'article' is presented. Although slightly slow in delivery time (rate it as a 'B'), everything else is A+. Prices, freebies, access, and most else on the site is superb. I would ask that communication regarding purchases receive a bit more attention. No communication is worse than letting the buyer know that delivery may be delayed due to supply problems, or whatever. Tracking capability alleviates some of the frustration. Please consider it. The above paragraph does not reflect negatively on an otherwise superb buying experience. I have become a dedicated customer. Great job Aaron. Keep it up. NOTE FROM THE MAGIC DEPOT:
Hello Ray! I appreciate the compliments - Thank You! Likewise, I apologize you weren’t 100% happy with our service. The reason your order took a little longer to process, was because you had ordered the product in small size, but said in the comments box you wanted different sizes. This threw us off a bit initially. However, we fixed the problem and shipped your order, which, even with the delay, arrived within the estimated time of delivery. If you ever feel we’re too distant or not providing you with up-to-date info, simply shoot us an email – we pride ourselves on prompt customer service! Thank You very much for your business, Ray!
– Dalton, Denver, CO
I am very pleased with the D'lites I ordered from the Magic Depot. They are a thrilling trick for my audience and very reasonably priced from Aaron Smith.

– stephen, massachusetts
this is a great site with awesome service they really know how to keep things running with great DEALS!
– Dan, Victoria
The best online magic store!
– Jake Capitano, Sacramento
I have been with the Magic Depot for about two years. I have one thousand hobbies and Magic is high on the list. My very faverite item, the Vortex Ring, never leaves my side. If its not on my finger its in my pocket; when I sleep its by my bed. The versatility of each item (especially the rings) and the simple but confusing mysteries behind the tricks make the Magic Depot the best place to shop. Even if its only a little wine and cheese soiree now and again, or if you seek magic professionally. This genius depot gives you the props, the mindset, and the overal knowledge of a magician and eventually that is what you become. Its been roughly two years and if someone asks; I am a magician.
– Ian McGregor, Barrie Ontario Canada
I have purchased from other magic stores and have never encountered the personal and professional courtesy as Aaron, Jennie and their staff provide. If you want service the way it used to be this should be your first and last stop..... They are the best and the prices speak for them-self. Cheers to The Magic Depot and all their future satisfied customers.
– Tony Libri, New Berlin
I had a problem with an order and was beginning to to think that I would loose out on the deal. However, after communicating with Aaron he fixed everything and went above and beyond what was expected of him to make sure that I was satisfied with his company. I am totally happy and will place another order soon!
– RONALD LABUDDA, CHICAGO IL
I HAVE BEEN IN MAGIC FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS. I HAVE JUST RECENTLY ORDERED THREE ITEMS FROM AARON THESE PAST FEW WEEKS. WITH BOTH ORDERS; I WAS IMPRESSSED WITH THE PRICES AND EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION. THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND PASSION FOR THE MAGIC INDUSTRY SHOWS IN EVERY ASPECT OF THEIR BUSINESS. I HOPE THAT YOU'RE COMPANY CONTINUES TO GROW, WILL DEFINITELY BE BUYING FROM YOU IN THE NEAR FUTURE. THANKS AGAIN!!
– Taufiq, Singapore
Im so disappointed this time round..ordered my flesh wound on the 13th..and till now, i havent even seen it...yeah it said shipped on my status..but sigh..could it be stolen in mail? just bad luck on my part? NOTE FROM THE MAGIC DEPOT:
Hello Taufiq! Actually, your order should be arriving any day now. With the method of shipping you chose plus a week or so in customs, your package is just now due for delivery. If you don't see it this week, shoot me an email and we'll look into it together. Thank You for your business, Taufiq!
– William, Carpenter
Aaron, your company is awesome to say the least. I have placed several orders in the last few months and everyone has been fulfilled quickly and effficiently. The items I've ordered have all been of good quality and will last me a long time. I am a beginning Magician and need good working equipment to learn properly. Everything I've gotten has done just that. I have called a few times about an order and got excellent customer service. Here you have QUALITY, EFFICIENCY, GREAT SHIPPING and CUSTOMER SERVICE all in one company. And, no they did not bribe me to say these things.LOL I will use them for many years to come. Thanks to all of you at MagicDepot.
– errol robinson, Brisbane,australia
i have purchased some great props & i find the company to be very helpful it is a real pleasure doing business with them. errol
– Mike Gentry, Coos Bay, OR
I am a Shrine Clown and I have a civilian alley, The AlleyOops of Coos Bay. Between the two I am really busy. We get all of our Magic from The Magic Depot. They have fast shipping and have a large selection. Whether quality or delivery I have never been disappointed.
Magic Depot Kudos to you,
M. Gentry/ Howie Diddit
– Tom LaSure, Tucson
Aaron you sure put a smile on my face when I opened my package... it was busting over with great magic tricks... Im gonna have so much fun with the "Poor Boy Match Pull"
you know I shop all over looking for Magic.. overall everyone has mostly the same stuff and the prices when all is said and done very close... but what the magic Depot has is GREAT customer Service.... for me that goes a long way...
AAron than you so much for all you do!!
– Taufiq, Singapore
Magic Depot will be my stockist from now on...i go for gimmicks and MD has alot of them and at affordable prices...moreover, Aaron has been a great help thus far in introducing me great props/gimmicks...well done..the only regret is not coming here earlier..
– Linda Gomes, Long Branch, NJ
The Magic Depot not only had what I wanted...But the site was/and is SO SIMPLE to navigate through - each item I needed, was easily found (and of course purchased). I'm not a magician... However, I have a little boy who absolutely LOVES Magic and we both were VERY pleased with the merchandise we received.
Rest assure, we WILL be returning to this site for ALL of our "Magic" needs.... THE MAGIC DEPOT ROCKS!!!
– Kaarthik Seshadri, Mumbai
This is the first time I have used MagicDepot and I must say I'm very impressed with their catalog and prices. They accept Paypal which is convenient for international customers. Unlike Magicdepot,a lot of sites do not calculate shipping prices at the time of checkout.
I ordered Harry Lorayne's 'Close Up Card Magic' and the order arrived in 15 days via USPS First Class International.
I was informed through email about the status of my order right upto the point of shipping, Very professional.
Overall The Magic Depot receives a 5/5 from me.
– Bob Morrison, Philadelphia, PA
From the beginning my order was high maintenance (through no one's fault but my own) but Aaron was super accommodating. He checked, double checked and triple checked to ensure that my order would arrive on time as it was imperative that I have it before New Years Day. Thumbs up to Aaron and the site.
– Ralph Arbitelle, Paris
I am new to this site and very pleased with it. It looks great and is easy to navigate th rough. I have been doing magic for 72 years now and 40 of those years were as an active professional by the name of Siroco The Illusion-Aire and have never seen such a neat site. Being the founder of The Magic Shop Of Paris ( not a magic shop but a school for magicians) and turning out some of the best young talent to hit the stage in many years it is nice to have a site like this to direct them too. I have been a member of the Academy Of Magical Arts since 1974 and am the father of Paris the magician to whom our school is dedicated. Paris ( Robert Charles Arbitelle) was the youngest performer ever to work in the close up gallery and also chosen by Leo Behnke (magic historian) as the sixteenth best magician at the age of six. Paris developed under the guidance of Dai Vernon, Joe Cosari, Jules Leneir and Steve Baker. I know that with the rebirth of our wonderful art and the excitement it creates that this site will be an amazing tool for those who want the best! Thanks, Siroco!
– Karan Talwar, New Delhi, India
If you scroll below you will notice that in the past I have made some pretty harsh comments on this website. At the time, I was absolutely livid with the way it had taken so long for my package to arrive and I felt my complaint wasn't getting the right attention from Aaron and his people. A lot of that had to do with the way I was dealing with the situation too, something that was not called for. I too have in the past said many nasty things and for that I am sorry, especially now when Aaron offered to send me a replacement and that replacement arrived immediately in 8 days! For that I am grateful to him and would like to thank him and would like to recall my previous testimonials. NOTE FROM THE MAGIC DEPOT!
Karan, there's no need to recall your previous testimonials. It shows that we can work together to resolve a tricky situation. I appreciate getting to know you a bit through our email correspondence and am delighted your order arrived quickly the second time around. If you ever need anything else from me, please don't hesitate to ask! Thank you very much for your business, Karan!
– Karan Talwar, New Delhi, India
Aaron this is to let you know that the goods you claimed shipped out on the 6th of October have still not arrived, today is 69 days....NOTE TO CUSTOMERS PLANNING TO BUY FROM HERE, please take into account how the shipping works with this site, he informs me everyday that the goods will reach but obviously they are not. Also, he keeps pulling down some posts i put up hence showing you the kind of testimonial this really is NOTE FROM THE MAGIC DEPOT!
Hello Karan! I'm sorry your package hasn't arrived yet. Shoot me an email if you would like to discuss the options for replacement. Thank you very much for your business!
– Charles Bourgheya, Thailand
The Magic depot's service and products are great. The staff really helped me with a personal touch not often seen nowadays. It was a pleasure doing business with them!
– Linda Griffith, California
Your service was great! I ordered my product over the weekend and it arrived in just a few days. Good job!
– Tommy Randle, California
I wanted to take a moment to impart my level of satisfaction with the service. I've received every order, timely an accurately. Your selection is one of the best on the net! Many items I haven't found in stock at other sites were available here. Keep up the good work!!!
– Paul Leroy, France
Thank you so much for your professionalism! You have a terrific team. Please stay on this cutting edge. You are able to make a dream alive for the magician people. All my orders arrived on time and well prepared. Happy new year from the sunny south of France!
– Alan Hogan, Sapulpa
Jenne; I just wanted to say thanks for all your time and the trouble I put you through. It came in the mail today and I like it very well. I use to buy a lot from ya'll when you were here in Tulsa, but I always came to the store to pick up my stuff from Aaron (the other one not Smith) or Marley?. This is the first time I had any thing ship from ya'll and it was a very good experience. Thanks Owln D. Wise
– Peter Kaperonis, Sydney
Hi Aaron, Been a while since I have ordered but I appreciate the updates that you email regularly. Great customer service all 'round. I will be ordering more soon, I've had some issues I had to deal with but plan to return to the whole magic scene again shortly. Thanks again and if you have any tricks or effects you highly recommend feel free to let me know. Thanks again, Peter
– Jim Dunham, Salem, OH
Shipped in a timely manner. Thank You.
– lee murray, london
i used this site as was fairley cheap ordered 60 pounds worth but it arrived ut im still waiting for my blink trick as it was out of stock nearly 2 months ago!!!!! but i get a store credit but so i dont realy get my free shipping uless i order 60 pounds worth but say it happens again feels like ive been had i could of walked to usa and back by now and bought it ut cant fault the response to my emails hopefully soon blink will arive. NOTE FROM THE MAGIC DEPOT!
Lee, the item was marked out of stock on the web site when you purchased it and we informed you it could be a while before it was available. You agreed to wait and to a store credit. The item's availability doesn't speak to our service, but rather to what a slow economy does to production within a small industry. Hopefully, manufacturers will be able to supply demand as things pick up. Thank you for your business!
– Frank K., Meriden
I have never been more satisfied with a company in my 5? years. Each and every employee or owner of this company would be decorated heroes on the battlefield if they were in the Armed Forces. I cannot say enough to show or explain how much help they ALL are. Unfortunately there are are only five choices to choose from. On a scale of 1 - 5 I rate this company a 7.5. Thank you one and all for your continued support and help.
– Mirko Peric, Concepción, Chile
This is my fist time with Magic Depot, and was very clear and easy. My order arrived 17 days after the shipping. All the stuff is in good condition. There was just one item with the wrong size (PK ring).
Just thaks to Aaron and especialy to Jenne, who was very nice and helpfull.
Please add more photos of each product with their review.
– Bob, Vancouver
Very patiently answered all my questions with thorough answers.
– Chris Hart, Orlando
This was my first time purchasing anything from Aaron and The Magic Depot family. I have to say that my experience with Aaron was AMAZING!!!
I know that in the magic community, there are many dealers to purchase from, many of which are just a click away. When you purchase something from other magic websites, you click, order, and receive your items without even knowing who your are buying from. With Aaron, he is there to answer any question you may have and is ready to bend over backwards to make sure you are happy with your order. Aaron is a fantastic person, both business and personal, and I would be very happy to order from The Magic Depot again in the future. Aaron's attention to detail and attention to helping the customer to have the best experience he/she can have sets Aaron and The Magic Depot apart from all the others!!!
Thank you Aaron for running such a class act business!! You should be the model that everyone else follows. May you continue to have success for many more years to come!!!!
– Sea Lar the Wizard, Rhode Island
I have been purchasing products from the Magic Depot for some time now. I find that the products are backed up with good customer service. I am pleased and continue to make purchases at the Magic Depot. Good customer service is hard to find however you will find it here.

Keep up the good work Aaron and i'm looking forward to purchase more items from you in the future!

shipping its not the faster, and i order priority. But Everything else its great, :)
– antonio, sl.brod
You are great!
– Justin, Los Angeles
Very fast delivery! My order was here in 4 days and shipping was free. Only complaint is that most of the items I ordered aren't available now (they were marked out of stock when I ordered), but I like that I can pay for them and they will send them when they get 'em!
– antonio , sl.brod

Great Company! Great People!Super Service!
– Kathy Caplaneris, San Diego
I left party favours for my son's birthday to the last minute but Jenne Smith had them delivered to me within 48 hours. She was extremely helpful and honest in what type of tricks to purchase. She put an amazing assortment of magic tricks together for 24 little kids within 24 hours and shipped them the same day! I highly recommend Magic Depot and will definitely be returning.
– nahrafqifahs, Malaysia
I think the Magic Depot is a great place to shop. They have a great selection, fast shipping and great customer service. I will be doing more shopping here in the future. Thank's!!
– Frank, Meriden
I received my first package today. The box was only bent up a little bit and the contents were like new. I am "IMPRESSED" to say the least.
– Frank, Meriden
I am new to the business of magic. I am in the process of trying out four companies and as of now I have nothing but positive feedback for The Magic Depot. I placed an order today and have received several e-mails on the status of my order. Upon receipt of my order I shall once again post a bit of feedback. The crew has been on their toes so far. Thank you for letting me ramble on.
– Ian A. Montgomery, Indiana
As a working professional, I have been very pleased with the quality, availability, selection, service, and price of the many items that I have bought from you through this site. My only real regret is that I have not had the time to thank you for the work that you do. It certainly makes it easier for me to routine a new show when I know that I can get top-quality, entertaining and reliable props quickly from you. And during performance, I can concentrate on my job as an entertainer rather than hoping that the effect doesn't fail me in front of the audience. All the best to all of you!
– Harold, Bayamon
Hi its the first time i buy here and im really happy with the site. Cause it has a variety of magic stuff, security with ur payment and best of all the customer service its the best. i had a question with my order and less than an hour jenne respond to me and help me with my question. And you recieve email of the status of the product.
THIS IS THE BEST MAGIC SITE EVERRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
– Aaron Smith (Not the owner of Magic Depot), Portland,OR
I love the Magic Depot!! They have the absolute best prices on the web, and Aaron & Jenne are wonderful people! I was reading some of the testomonials and there were very few negative responses. And the one thing I did notice was that Aaron responded positively to each and every one of them.. Now there is a man who cares about people, his reputation, and his business. Even if magic depot had the highest prices on the net, I would still shop there. I mean, have you ever had a question about an effect that you really wanted answered? With magic depot Aaron will answer any question, and quickly to!!! Most magicians and dealers are snobs.. I'm sorry to say that but they really are. I've sent e-mails to SO many dealers in the past and 90% of the time, I get NO response. And most of the time, if I do get a response it really isn't helpful. They also, have the fastest shipping on the face of the planet!! And free shipping on any order over $60!! Do yourself a favor and stop reading this testomonial and go buy some stuff from Aaron now!!!!!
– eudelia, saint marys
This was the first time I placed an order from this site and I would order again. My order arrived within days of placing the order and I was very happy with my coins.
– Anthony, Bakersfield
Great company with fast shipment and superb customer service. My only issue with them is that I'm getting addicted to magic!
– Thomas, Sweden
As I mentioned earlier, Magic Depot has an excellent service. They
are very helpful and reply your questions immediately. The progress
is fast and together with the USPS they ship your items so that they
arrive in great condition.
– Rafael Reimberg Miyamoto, São Paulo
I'm from Brasil and always I buy a lot of things from this website, because they have a great price. If I need to contact, I send an email to talk to Aaron Smith, Jenne and the contact is immediately. I love this website because is very organized.
Thanks Magic Depot!
sorry for my vocabulary :]
– Mago Gustavo, Mexico
Greetings from Mexico, I`m Very happy with the Magic Depot they care about my request, and they keep me informed about my order in every step, the atention is amazing.My order came to my door in one week. Soon i will be asking for more Magic THANKS.
– Dennis, Queen Creek AZ
Something was shipped to me and was damaged. I was gived a store credit that same day. When the next shipment arrived it was in perfect condition. This company has a top notch crew, and always deliver on time. I highly recommend the Magic Depot.
– Dawna, Utah
Best online service EVER! Fast shipping, excellent communications, and exceptional follow-up when I was nervous item wouldn't get here by Christmas. I must say I was very skeptical at first, I found the site via an internet search for a "Slappy" doll. But I couldn't be happier, and would highly recommend to anyone. You helped make Christmas the best ever for our 5 year old...this was the only thing he asked Santa to bring and you saved the day, we didn't even know a Slappy ventriloquist doll existed! Many, many thanks again for the lifetime memory.
– Adam Over, London
I really should have written a testimonial a long time ago, having ordered from here for a few years now...
I have had nothing but a great experience using The Magic Depot.
Excellent communication, prompt and speedy delivery, even with the free service. Back-orders sent when available, refund/store credit when not. And prices that cannot be bested. I have yet to find the same quantity and quality of service elsewhere.
Although I have not had much time to practice those items already purchased, I have no doubt I will be using this site again. Highly recommended.
Thumbs up Aaron.
– JONAS; Hertel, Dudenhofen
– La Nita, Santa Clarita
My daughter LOVES the snakes in the jelly bean can !!!!!!
Thank You !!!
– John Abraham, New York
Aaron and Jenn are the best. Not only did they locate an extremely hard to find item, but also, they busted their butts to get it to me very rapidly. AND...they gently put up with my emails.
All I can say is thank you and Happy Holidays. I will do business with them again.
– Adam, Ottawa
I was skeptical at first about buying online. The Magic Depot has changed that. I will be purchasing all of my effects from them from now on. Not only do they have the best prices around and a massive selection but Jenne Smith put up with my incessant questioning, even on a holiday (oops sorry guys!). The site includes short bios on all the staff as well as letters and notices from Aaron. These really make it seem more like a magic store interested in helping magicians rather than making money! I have been to real magic stores that weren't as friendly as this site is! I recommend this site more highly than any other!
– Ian Carter, Shibata, Japan
The next best thing to a real world magic shop. The Magic Depot is a fantastic site for anyone who wants to order from outside the United States and can not find a local alternative. The Depot's amazing shipping practices make professional level magic affordable to anyone. Anytime I had an issue or question, the folks at The Magic Depot responded in world record shattering time. The idea of an honest magician may seem like an oxymoron, but that is exactly what we have here. The Smiths were completely honest with me everytime I've spoken with them. Highly recommended, I WILL be buying from this site again in the future.
– Thomas, Sweden
Great Service, nice prices, Immediate response when you have questions! Magic Depot updates your status by sending you an
email every time something happens in the order process.
If you´re in to books in magic, especially the hardbound, this
is the place for you. You have your items within 10 days in
– Bruno, São Paulo, Brazil
Everything comes all right! Thank you so much! I loved my new magics. The Magic Depot is the better! Thanks Aaron!
– George Schuldberg, Houston
Excellent everything.....merchandise....response time....customer service.....quality.
– jay, UAE
Its almost been two years since I received the first part of my order, unfortunately the 2nd part order is much expensive than the 1st which until now is clueless. I will never forget this site, because I lose a lot of money here and time of waiting. Nice service guys! Keep up the good work. Note from Aaron Smith:
Jay, you already posted this testimonial, but we still do not ship to your country because of the high fraud rate at customs. You accepted the risk and placed the order anyway. I wish there was something we can do, but we didn't receive any help from you, your post office, or customs.
– Shawn Bauer, Ananconda
The best site on the web for all the great magic.
scarabus is awesome as well as lightning amazing people all over with it. cant wait to try the pk ring was broke in shipping so need a new one.
supper fast shipping and great deals i love this site.
– Giuseppe Nastro, Verona (Italy)
At beginning of last year, it seemed a good experience. Then too many back-orders. Too many items in imperfect conditions. I definitely won't repeat the experience. Note from Aaron Smith:
Hello Giuseppe! I only show one backorder on your last three orders. That item was clearly marked reserve and you received a refund. Let me know if there is ever anything else we can do for you!
– Larry L, Atlanta
A couple of things. 1. Service was prompt. 2. Prices were very acceptable. 3. Shipping - They kept me informed the whole way and it was also quick. 4. I had contact with Aaron and Jenne in reference to a special order. Let me just say if anyone should need a custom made item or even one that just isn't normally available, this is and should be your 1st and only stop. I am enjoying doing business with this Company - You are treated as a person, not just a meal ticket!
Would I buy again -- What part of the word yes don't you understand. Great Service!!! Kudus
– SANTY, VIGO SPAIN
Without doubt, the best distributor of articles of magic for me. Lots of variety and an unbeatable price. recommended 100%. Very quick and free shipping. What more could you ask for?
– John Styles, Kent, England
Everything went so smoothly with my order. Very impressed with your prompt and particularly polite service, speed of delivery - and free gifts!
Very happy with your prices too - so I shall be back.
– Harold Ross, Walthill
Rarely will you find the customer service that is as great as what these people provide. I was sent an inferior product and I immediately contacted them and within a short time they contacted me ready to resolve the problem. A few days later I received the proper product. They mean what they say in their guarantee!
– NATÁLIA, FORTALEZA CE, BRAZIL
Congratulations for the great work. All the order arrive at the correct time and never paid the taxes.
But only I don't like when we when we have that to reserve some item.
The attendance is excellent. I recommend!
Thank you Jenne and Aaron! :)
– Rick Martin, Cleveland
Fantastic service! I ordered an item with a short lead time as part of a retirement package for one of my clients. They provided me continual email updates on the status of the transaction and it was delivered to me 1 day earlier than promised. I highly recommend the Magic Depot!!!
– Chris Wood, Oceanside
I have shopped at a few online Magic Retailers, all of them carry about the same. Until I came across the Magic Depot, they carry most of the same stuff but they offer more even the friendly note by the owner on my order. It feels more down to earth than some online sites are.
– Chamira, Sri Lanka
The Magic Depot DELIVERED... ON TIME...
Jenne Smith was extremly helpful in everythin..the prices are great and they deliver anywhere...
– Anonymous, Australia
MAGIC DEPOT ROCKS!!! Not only the cheapest price on the net, but the cheapest prices in the world!! All my magic business will be with you guys, as I now only pay half as much for my magic.

I think I've finally figured out why I prefer shopping at the Magic Depot. It's not that it's the cheapest (you can always find someone willing to sell for less, but you'll wonder if your package is ever going to arrive). It's not that they have everything in the world in stock. Aaron tries to carry only useful material. And sometimes they'll have to make a special order for you. It's not that the Magic Depot is that easy to find if you're in Oklahoma. They keep moving to bigger units to carry more stuff. And it's not that Aaron and his crew are the friendliest people in the world. Oh, they're up there, but they still can't beat my Mom and Dad. No, I think it's because I always get a square deal. When I ask, I've been advised when an item or book might or might not fit into my act and my character. When I've needed a hand to figure out just what I'm looking for, their expertise is available right away. They've always been timely and efficient. They've never taken my money and put something on backorder without asking or informing me. And they do all they can to reduce or eliminate those pesky postage costs. And sometimes, during their sneaky sales, they ARE the cheapest place on the web! *jeep!

Great service, I will not hesitate to use them again.

I have just recently gotten back into magic and I must say that I found a true gem in The Magic Depot and Aaron and Jenne. They are extremely patient and helpful answering all my questions in a very quick and professional manner.
My only regret is that I don't live closer to their actual store so I can meet these wonderful and helpful people in person!
Two thumbs up from me.

It's not often that you get good bargains, but value for money items I have just purchased are Mr Gadfly (5) and Virtual Miracles.
(Duffie) the latter being a brilliant download.
– Naresh Kumar Basak, Kuwait
I placed order for some items. But put my house address as delivery address. Later on I realized that, here it is very difficult to get parcels at house address. Nevertheless, I am particularly thankful to Jenne & Aaron for replying my every queries.
As a result I could get the delivery of items. I found the items were in excellent condition.
I must say that Services of Magic Depot are exceptionally very good and fast.
I am very glad with the services they provide. However, due to my experience with this country's postal services, I will now change my delivery address.
Thanks Magic Depot.
– Rick, Estill Springs
Great book and fast shipping! Very good service!
– JAMES PAUL MISUP, CHICAGO
Great service and fast shipping! I loved the famous flea act by tom palmer. Fun and easy read. Why spend thousands of dollars on a single flea circus, when the instructions are all in this book! It can be put to together using simple items found around the house, "so simple a child can perform it , with a little supervision of course " and you'll even find a child performing it on the inside of the book !!! Even contains professional patter. Special note: this routine should be practiced in order to develop the very important showmanship skills that can be learned from doing this act. "It's an absolute phenomenon!" women think it's cute, kids love it and the seniors will remember it from their youth "who wouldn't want to see fleas, in their tiny little costumes pulling a vehicle or lifting weights" wouldn't you pay to see that? Wouldn't you pay to see a flea lifting weights? Well hurry! This book is bound to sell fast... it's flea season!!!
– Jeff Johnson, Austin, MN
Aaron provided me with extremely quick service and some of the best prices you will ever find. I couldn't be happier with the way I have been treated.
– Mr. Ree, Union Star MO
I buy quite a lot of magic online and this is one of the best sites! Good tricks, great prices, super shipping and fantastic customer support! Always something of interest here! I'll be a regular customer!
– Harry Keller, Atlanta
While the site seems it has lots of items, it seems that most of the things that would normally be carried by most other internet magic shops were mysteriously out of stock. Not impressed by the prices and since most of items I can order from other dealers are in stock and lower price, I will stick with them. Hi Aaron, I sent you an email six months ago regarding this and never heard back. Is this what you call great service? Note from Aaron Smith:
Hello Harry! I don't have any emails or orders from you, but yes, you will always receive great service from us. We stock about 6000 items at any given time. Please let me know if there's ever anything we can get for you. Thanks Harry!
– Randy Stu, Portland
I like this site a lot. It is attractive and easy to get around. Free shipping is always nice and the shipping is quick.
– Austin, *Private*
I am very happy with my product. I recived it faster then i thought.Visitors, you should trust this site because of all the great positive feedback the site has gotten and that Aaron will always respond to you after you buy something. Its always great to buy from one of the most trusted sites i've been to. Thanks!
– Marc-André Giroux, Montréal, Québec, Canada
Fast shipping, great prices and the exact item I was looking for, your bicycle vintage selection is impressive and offered at the lowest price around. Even if my order was more about poker than magic I'm fully satisfied and I recommend this site to everybody.
– Danny Castro, Nampa
You guys are amazing, I dont expect anything less, good customer service, good shipping, good magic, simply amazing!
– Magic D, Port Elizabeth, South Africa
Wow! I'm impressed, as usual:) What more can I say. You get the "Penguin: sites", "ProShop" sites and many others, promising you huge things and obviously never live up to it.
That of course brings new meaning to the phrase "Ove promise and under deliver". I'm not a difficult person and love life, yet when I pay for things I expect to get what I pay for. And that is exactly what I get from THE MAGIC DEPOT!
Keep it up guys. I am a repeat client, and will certainly be ordering from you guys again. When I placed my order on a Sunday and received a reply on my question later that afternoon (U.S time), I was extremely ipressed.
Thanx Jenne Smith

My son started to read a lot of Goosebumps books by R L Stine, I was pleased as it was encouraging him to read more, so I bought him lots of books, then to my horror he suddenly said I would like Slappy the Dummy for my birthday. I thought where am I ever going to get one of those from, and then I found the Magic Depot, what a pleasure, easy and quick and good price aswell. My sone is now the happiest little boy in the world, although I am not as the dummy keeps turning up in funny places and giving me a scare.
– Paul Matthews, Malaysia
I am so happy that I found Magic Depot. Right from the start, correspondance with Aaron was a joy - it was just like writing to a friend and I knew I could order with absolute confidence. I placed my first order, was informed when it had been packed and despatched and just eight days later it was in my hands in Malaysia, now that is a service second to none. I have no heitation in recommending Aaron and the lovely people at Magic Depot.
– Thomas J, Sweden
Excellent service. Very fast response. Mails keep you updated through the whole process from ordering to shipping. If you want to buy magicbooks you don´t have to search through the whole web because
MagicDepot seems to have all books that´s worth buying, and the prices are low.
– Jim Pinckley, Dyer, TN
I started buying from Magic Depot back in November 2007. Everything that I have ordered has been shipped quickly and FREE! There has never been a problem. Both Aarons have been super to deal with. I reccomend MAGIC DEPOT highly. If they don't have it, you don't need it. Give them a try and see for yourself.
– Leo, Los Angeles, CA
Magic Depot is a great place to shop online and their customer service is great. They are nice and friendly to talk with. I placed my ordered during the weekend and i received my ordered 4 business days. When i emailed them, they responded at once. Great selections & prices. Highly recommended to all magicians right there. Thanks for making business with you guys. I will shop again in the future.
– Jay Mark , UAE
I just lose 60 dollars from MAGIC DEPOT, I ordered the items last year november 2007 until now I haven't received 3 items worth 60 dollars... thats all I can say. Note from Aaron Smith:
Hello Jay! I understand you received the first part of this order from us months ago, and you're now awaiting a second package containing reserve items. While the package will probably arrive in just a few days, I see that you live in one of the countries we do not ship due to the high fraud rate of customs. You bypassed our system, but not customs. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Please let me know if you need help filing police reports. Thank you for your business, Jay!
– JOEY BOND a.k.a. VanDahl, SAN FRANCISCO
GO AHEAD AND COMPARE . . . THE MAGIC DEPOT IS TOP SHELF WHEN IT COMES TO CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SECOND TO NONE ON BEST PRICES.
AARON SMITH NOT ONLY DELIVERS THE GOODS, HE EVEN CREATES THEM.
YES, I LIKE THIS OUTFIT!

I am really getting to like The Magic Depot. They aim to please. Mr. Smith is a good communicator, and quickly resolves any snags. I will be checking back, and if the price is right, I will be ordering more. Also, I really like the vintage look of the site. It kind of gives a warm nostalgic feel to internet shopping.
– Prashant Deshpande, Raigad (India)
I used to buy my magic products from a shop in Mumbai (Bombay) and I still do that. But it consumes my time & energy.
When I found Aaron's Magic Depot, I got the products at the convinience of my home without spending my time, efforts and even for the postage (for $40 plus orders). That's just awsome.
I don't know how can you guys afford that but I sincerely hope that your business grows so much that you can have a small outlet in India itself. Then you'll be able to supply the postage free delivery even for items less than $40 !!!
My best wishes to Magic Depot & all the magicians.
– joe romeo, brooklyn ny
i wish i could give more than 5 stars.i recently purchased the scarabaeus and it took me about 30 mins to master.shipping was fast.and im very happy with the quality of their products. i think on a professional point of view , that this is one of the top sites on the net , they will get all my buisness inthe future.
– Will , Vancouver
I owe it to The Magic Depot to let everybody know what great customer service that I have ben provided! I started buying magic when I was about 9 years old by selling my toys on the sidewalks of Montreal. I used the same magic shop for years and was never satisfied with the service...even at 9! I am 30 now and the Magic Depot has made it a pleasure to fall in love with magic all over agian! I have found a shop I intend to stick with... Hats off to Aaron and the Magic Depot!
– Joe Caracciolo, Toledo
I have been a demonstrator in three different Magic Shops and know what it is like "behind the counter". I only purchase from a few select dealers. Knowing of Aaron's excellent effects - a few of which I have demonstrated and one that is in my act - as well as his reputation on the Bryan Dean chat, I decided to give Aaron's shop a try. Suffice it to say that Aaron delivers on his promises. There was a mix up on my order that actually was not Aaron's fault. He rectified the situation in a courteous and professional manner.
The most important thing for me is that Aaron's shop hearkens back to the great magic shops of the past that have sadly disappeared. Aaron and his staff deserve kudos for their great work in continuing the tradition of the best shops.
The Magic Depot is now a part of my VERY short list of preferred dealers!!
– Lisa Sevier, Arkansas
I think Aaron and his magic store are the best. It was two weeks before Christmas and I had looked every where for a magic set for my 7 year old grandson. I couldn't find one any where. When I found Aaron and his magic store online, I was so relieved that they had exactly what I was wanting and when they shipped it and I received it within a 3 days I was really impressed. Thank you Aaron and your helpers for a wonderful job of getting me my gift before Christmas. Your the Best!
– Brandon Smith, Palm Bay
Aaron and the Magic Depot have been great to me. Thier customer service is top notch. I purchased an effect that didn't live up to the video demo. I sent it back thinking it might be defective and the staff there checked the other ones out and said they were not up to the standard shown in the video so they quickly refunded my purchase. You don't find many magic dealers that are willing to test the products to make sure the quality is there. Magic Depot delivers by backing up what they sell.
– Mohammad , Meppel(holland)
I have purchased a few item untill now and the service is very good. i mean from shopping till dilevry its all good.
if i have problems or questions the service is very nice.i havent tried the calling thing but emails are answered as soon as possible with i like. Aaron Smith even answered an email for me when he was driving in a car with his mobile. I mean who does that ??
Magic Depot is recommended ;)
one tip - there is a huge collection of magic here,i would advice to make videos for most of the stuff here so people can see what a product can do.videos are avaibile here for a few products,i think videos for more products will increase the increase sales ;)
– Lawrence, North Smithfield
I am a new customer with the Magic Depot and have purchased quite a few products over the past month. I find the customer service to be of the highest quality. As for the products I will submit future comments as they are utilized in my weekly performances.
– Wouter, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Fast shipping and good quality of everything!
– T. Woodruff, Marietta, GA
SERVICE, SERVICE, SERVICE!- but you guys don't have to take my word for it, all you have to do is look at this giant page of 5 STAR reviews! Aaron and his team have provided top notch service on all of my orders. I wanted some new material before I went on a trip last week, and I asked if I could realistically get my order in just a few days. Aaron paired me up with the right shipping option, and the order came off perferct.
I find the level of inventory pleasing, the prices are very competitive, but most of all the SERVICE is over the top. Don't try to save pennies elsewhere only to be disappointed as I have by other vendors...Shop the Magic Depot so we can keep a good thing going.
– Bill English, Orange park
Thank you for your super service. I had ordered these same two items from another company and paidc via pay pal. As of this day I have not received the items over 15 days. Supposley they will ship soon. I ordered these and requested FedX. They were here in two days. Amazine service these folks here at magic Depot provide. I would recomment to everyone that they order from this company. I had received E-mails letting me know the status of my order all along the way. Again I think the crew of Magic Depot. You will see me again.
– Erin Argast, Dallas
Great , and timely, service...even during the Christmas shopping season. Affordable prices, great products which are as advertised, all arriving in good condition...what more could a consumer want? I will be back again for more.
– Delano, South Africa
Absolutely incredible service. I ordered products above $40 which meant that my postage was free. I braced myself for the worst, but recieved the most wonderful service. Thanks a lot Aaron, you always reply to questions and have always responded to emails. I don't have any objections. You guys are the best. Keep up the good work. You will definately be hearing from me again in 2008.

I bought the Change Bag (turning handle), model 11-0205 for my son, and hoped the it would look decent. I couldn't believe it when we received it. The Change Bag looks like something a professional would use, its just beautiful. And it worked like a charm. Every kid, and quite a few teachers at my son's school were impressed and wanted one for themselves.
I am very happy with the product sold by The Magic Depot, everything was just as it had been represented to be.
– April, London
Wow- free shipping to Europe! Fast, efficient service and great prices. Many thanks.

Magic Depot is one of the best out there! Aaron Smith himself will help you with any of your orders and responds quickly with any questions that you have! I also purchased something that the site didn't have and Aaron personally found what I was looking for so I could order it! The service here is amazing and the delivery times are fast! If you are looking for a perfect place to order your magic supplies from... THIS IS IT! Make sure the email Aaron as he will gladly help you out anytime!!
– RK, Toronto
I ordered some D'lites a while back and I got them pretty fast. I asked tons of questions before purchasing and always got quick and helpful reply. I'm about to order some more right now, great service.
– Stephen Brown, US
This is by far one of the best sites for magic that I've ever been to. I use to use Penguin Magic a lot, but their site is not always accurate on items being available, and in stock. Ellusionist is fairly accurate, but more expensive. Here at the Magic Depot, I feel as if I get the best of both worlds, accuracy on availability, and cheep prices. Magic Depot has definitely impressed me and will be getting more of my bushinesses.
– Sam Mancuso, Columbia, MD
The best magic shop- hands down and sleeves rolled-up! I just got your email announcing I was the Grand Prize Winner in The Magic Depot's Cheater's Win contest! Whoohoo!

You have the BEST customer service of any magic shop, whether online or at a store. You are the BEST in the industry and are very helpful to help find what is not on your current list.
Simply the BEST.

Pretty good magics.. and affrodable! The Magic Depot is the best!

This site is the best magic dealer on the net. Hands down. No one has better deals, better shipping and great communication with their costomers like the Magic Depot. As long as these deals keep up I will keep buying from the Magic depot.
– jeff b, canton, ohio
i'm new to this site, but, i am pleased with the fast service..
– Jeremy Sutton, Oklahoma City
I was very impressed with service i received in dealing with the Magic Depot. I feel like they really make an effort to be more involved and treat their customers as people, rather than another dollar. They kept me updated by e-mail through every step of my order process from packing to the point it was shipped out.
– Justin, New Hampshire
I have made two separate orders to the Magic Depot and each time I was extremely satisfied with the quality of the products and the swiftness I received the products. I don't thing that it took a week from the time I placed the order and the time I had it in hand. I also like the way you keep sending e-mails on the status of my order. This leaves nothing to the imagination of where my order is. Please keep up the excellent work.
– Rick Ross, Ohio
Hey All, Thanks! Got my order today including free shipping! Thanks again! I will recommend you guys to everyone!
– Paul Kilmer, Connecticut
I got my thread reel today. It the coolest thing I ever bought. I don't think I am ever going to another magic shop again. These people are fast, and even better they know what they are doing. No more having to return broken tricks. Thank you guys!
– Ryan Stana, New York
I was responsible for creating a magic show for a theme park and stumbled upon The Magic Depot. I have been completely impressed by the amazing customer service offered by this company. I could call any of them and they would answer questions about how the tricks functioned, allow me to return items, credit my account properly and ship me new items quickly. I have used The Magic Depot to outfit this show and will come back for any magic needs. Thanks to you all!
– Russell Weaver, Dallas
Instant personal communication and incredible shipping. I honestly think my order was shipped as I entered the final zip code digit.
– John Robertson, Pennsylvania
This company is what customer satisfaction is all about. Not only does this company offer top notch equipment, it comes with a Thirty day Guarantee which is unheard of in the magic supply area. Also, I have had a few conversations with Aaron Smith and many with Aaron Thompson, these gentlemen go out of their way to try and know their customer personally. They make sure that the merchandise you are requesting is exactly what you want and making recommendations on products that would suit your taste and needs. The shipping is fast and the products are well packaged. They even have magic forums and live chats. This is a company that offers it all and more.
– David Krank, California
Aaron Smith and the Magic Depot have shown me that they are not only a great store but they care about their customers. Aaron contacted me by phone to ask me a question about my order. When is the last time a merchant called you? My top hat is off to The Magic Depot and its employees. Thank you all so much!
– Paulo Kanda, Brazil
Very fast and efficient service from very friendly and kind people. It´s my first order, from a series. I´m very happy (first time buying from internet and no errors). From Oklahoma to Taubaté just 10 days to get my package. Congratulations for the great job!!!
– Jeff Stone, Germany
I have never had better service from anybody, anywhere. Period. You are friendly, efficient, and the "free shipping anywhere in the world" is especially exciting for people in other countries. To be honest, I don't know how you do it. The two times I've ordered from you, the postage on the package was more than what I had paid for shipping! I hope you're not going hungry in Oklahoma.
– Helen Mancini, Clifton
Found exactly what I needed! Fast, great service!
– Quirrel, Hawaii
Congratulations on a great web site. I am a new computer user and finding you was like coming home. Continued success.

Wow, I got my magic supplies so quick. I received it in 4 days when I thought I was going to get it around 7 days. This is some great service. Keep going at it.

Exceptional service. Fastest shipping I have ever had. Would order from here again.

What can I say ? This is just a great shop. I´ll be back. Thanks.

What a great, friendly, problem free place to find a large assortment of magic items. Super customer service. Fast shipping and excellent prices. Placed many orders and always had a Top Notch transaction. Magic Depot is the best. Thanks.

I was looking for the great UFO card trick my husband saw in Vegas. When I can across it here I had to get it. I haven't given it to him yet since his birthday is next week, but I know it is exactly what he is looking for. When you buy from here it is very fast, easy and convinent (with the use of Paypal to checkout!) Plus the shipping is super fast! Can't wait to buy something else from them for Christmas presents! Thanks!
– James, Litchfield,OH
Amazing speed, accuracy, and friendliness. Clear, easy to use website, best on the web. Truly awesome service! Thanks a lot to the Magic Depot and Aaron Smith and Co.!

SIMPLY THE BEST! REALLY.
– Paul Miller, West Los Angeles
I just received my order (several sets of foam bricks and rocks, plus a trick called 8-Card Brainwave). The order arrived VERY fast. I don't even have time to open up and study the card trick but do look forward to doing so in about a week, but in any case the person I corresponded with (Aaron Smith) was very helpful and friendly by e-mail(!), and I'm definitely going to "save" this website on computer. The prices are very reasonable. It's amazing the things one can find on the internet. My order was sent by surface mail (Parcel Post) and yet took only 3 days to arrive! Truly excellent service.
– Rod Brustad, Bagley, mn
My buying experience was as good as the products they sell, exellent! The customer service rocks as always. This is my only source for magic supplies.
Thanks again, Aaron, for a truely wonderfull transaction.
– James Tepfer, Willmar Minnesota
The service is the best The Magic Depot. I ordered 2 scotch and sodas and some other stuff, one of the s and s was on back order and i needed it by the weekend for a show for my friends becuse I had showed them before but I had traded it when I went to norway. so I mailed Aaron and asked if I could get it by then. So he sent that hour to get it to me in time. It worked great!!!! My friends now think I am the devil!! Everyone should get a scotch and soda just because so simple and such great response from audience.
Thanks to everyone at the Magic Depot. My one complant is there should be more stars to pick then five:)
– Jacob Dicke, Jackson Center, OH
I just got my package from The Magic Depot a few days ago and I must say that I am 100% impressed. Fast order turnaround and shipping are great. This was my second order from Aaron and it will NOT be my last. 5 STARS! Highly recomended to all!
– Rod Brustad, Bagley
I bought the mystic wine glass based on a review that I read. It works great. What a beautiful little prop. It is self working. I have had a great experience with Magic Depot, that is why I keep coming back for the supplies I need.
Thanks Aaron, and the gang for all your help.
– Paul Dellatore, NewYork
Its too bad there is not a Magic Depot in every city! I really like the way they do business I wish the best for Aaron and his incredible crew.
– Zachary Hurd, Hominy Oklahoma
i personally went to the warehouse and bought my tricks since i live only 40 minutes away from the store. i love the service, and i love how nice everyone is. i am personally dropping my bussiness with ellusionist and penguin magic, and buying directly from you guys!!! KEEP IT UP! AWSOME SERVICE!
– George Schuldberg, Houston
I cannot out-do above testimonials...all I can tell you is that, like we say in Argentina: The Magic Depot..... Kicks Butt
– Rod Brustad, Bagley, minnesota
Recieved my order in record time. The entourage is a great pocket trick just as described. I also recived the super sharpie, but it was not what I expected. I emailed Aaron about my concerns, and he said I could return it for a store credit. Magic Depot is my place for magic supplies, as no other has customer service like they do.
Thanks Magic Depot
– Michael, Nashville
Once again a great product, Friendly staff and QUICKKKKKKK shipping. Being an interactive DJ and a somewhat learning magician, its great to have this web site and service!!
A++++++++++ Keep up the good work!!!
– Rich Levinton, Merrick, NY
Super Speedy/Safe/Friendly Service !! Did I mention SPEEDY??!! - like - it was here in a heart-beat. Thank you very much, Mr. Smith - it was a pleasure doing business with you.
The Heinstein Shuffle is an incredible tool for walk-around work -- it'll take me a little while to get the hang of it, but it is an absolutely invaluable false shuffle ---- thanks for carrying it!!
– Steve Hartman, San Jose, CA
I use the 2 Card Monte as a sales tool. It is easy to learn and after performing the trick for my client, I then show them the "secret" and give them the trick to entertain their friends and family.
It also makes a business point: That what you think is happening isn't always correct! I'll keep buying the trick and am thrilled to find such a wonderful company, The Magic Depot, and friend, Aaron Smith, to supply me. Aaron's e-mails also keep me posted on new tricks that I can use. You just keep amazin' me!!!!
– Stephen, Phoenix
Their "Freakin Awesome Shipping" is truely freaking awesome. Thanks again!
– Jeffrey Mindich, Taipei, Taiwan
Aaron Smith has magical skills that many online merchants don't have - the power to make the hassle of overseas orders vanish into thin air! Doing business with him is an absolute pleasure. From his well-designed website, to courteous service, to prompt shipping all the way to the other side of the world, there's nothing left to be desired here - absolute perfection!
– Harsh Kumar, New York
The site has great prices and many effects to choose from. I highly reccomend this site, fast shipping also.
– Xavier, Montreal
I love the tricks they have and they are not expensive.Only thing i dont like is the backorders.(I've had two in a row.)
– Valerie Mihalko, San Angelo
I placed my order 2 days before the 4th of July weekend. It was waiting for me when I returned from my 4th of July weekend trip! Super quick!
I would recommend this site to even a friend!
– Tomasz Vinici, POLAND
I'm very glad that I booked tricks in MAGIC DEPOT. Every accessories are first rate. Very quick shipment!!! Parcel arrived to my door in 7 DAYS(form USA to POLAND)!!! Thank's a lot Mr. Aaron Smith... I'll be back here;)...
– Casey Wayne, New Jersey
All orders have arrived super-fast; highly recommended if you need something in a hurry! The best prices I have seen; and they answer any and all questions over the phone before you order -- what more can you ask? Congrats, Aaron -- you provide great full-service (and practically one-stop-shopping!), for performers everywhere. Two 'Thumb Tips' UP!
– Johnny Renken, White Hall, Illinois
Yes, I ordered the dvds "Card Sharp" and "The System" The 24th of June. I receive all My items The 30th of June It was Fast Shipping. They are such a great place to buy magic. I send all my friends Here!!

I had ordered the Kueppers Bite-Out quarter along with some other things a few short weeks ago. I was informed that my the quarter was out of stock due to an order or orders' put in right before mine...I was cool, I understand these things happen. What blew me away is that after Aaron sending me an e-mail letting me know whats up, when he got the item back in stock and sent me my e-mail informing me it had been shipped, (tuesday the 27th) it got here the very next day.(28th).
I would have been happy with the 4-5 day I paid for, but I checked the mailbox just for kicks and was blown away. I said it before, this site and Aaron are awesome. A couple of friends of mine should be ordering from here shortly. Keep up the outstanding service. Thank you.

Thank you very much, Aaron! It's very good magic-shop.
Fast shipping and super stuffs! My new "Electric Touch" trick is very effective :) Good for mental and card tricks..
I like this shop !!
– Rod Brustad, Bagley
Recieved my order in lightning speed. The loops are tricky at first. I have broken two of them by stretching to much, while trying to preform the card reveal. My own fault though.
The spider pen reels are a hit with me. This is my choice when it comes to increadible invisible thread levitation.
The wax will last me a life time, what a buy. Thank you Magic Depot for making my one stop shopping a great experience.
– Dynamike, Michigan
I'm giving The Magic Depot two sets of 5 stars. The first set is because of the low prices. I noticed it by searching all over the internet for the items I wanted to purchase. The second set of stars is because of the timing in shipping my products. I had a special show to perform. I needed those items quickly. I was surprised on how fast I received them. When I order from them next time, I will be relaxed not worrying like I did the first time.
Pros: Prices and Service
– GMan, Virginia
The Magic Depot has the best selection of magic items to fit your stile. Having said that, I am not an easy one to please. I like high quality items and they are all here. The customer service is extremely helpful, friendly, and courteous. Last but not least, their fast shipping rocks!!! Way to go!!! You keep setting the bar high.
– Dane, Laurel, De
The Customer service and one on one interaction response from Aaron is awesome. He took the time out to let me know specifics on my order and got it here to me in 4 days. Im having fun and entertaining friends and family with the things I've purchased. I've already and will continue to refer people to this site. Magic Depot is outstanding!
– C Antico, boston

– Leif Thordarson, Kelowna
Aaron helped me personally pick out a few items when I had some concerns. The payment process was as smooth and easy. Received my items fast too. I cannot complain about a single thing. I think this is one of, if not the best online shopping experience i've ever had.
I'll definatly come back.
– Pierre-Luc LeBlanc, montreal canada
I don't know why but the first order was sent to the wrong address but the team at Magic Depot did all they can do for helping me its very appreciated. I received my order the next day like the way I wanted. I recommend Magic Depot for prices and fast delivery, thank you for your support. Maybe the next time I gonna give you five star? From Aaron Smith:
We'll do all we can to earn that fifth star! After receiving your correct address, I worked with Canada's UPS couriers to get your package delivered fast! Thanks for the business!
– Rod Brustad, Bagley
Thanks Magic Depot. I recieved the pocket razor blade trick. I had one before but it had a plastic holder. This one in very high quality. Can't wait to try it out.

I love it so much, I buy effects and pay the extra postage to get them to the UK!
Definitely my HIGHEST recommendation.

Magic Depot has given me their all--Exchanges, explanations,
resolved problems, quick service, personal advice and more.
The Depot is your personal Magic Cybershop--Like having a local magic-outlet right in the privacy of your own livingroom.
Trust, integrity and old-fashioned service is a true compliment
in today's modern day market!

– Peggy Greco, Hobe Sound, Florida
I was very pleasantly surprised at how fast my order was delivered. Also my e-mails were answered quickly and completely. I am a Magic Depot fan!
– Richard Kahane, McLean, Virginia
I placed my order on February 27, and my credit card was debited on the same day. The next day, an automated message informed me that one item was out of stock and there would be a delay of "a day or two." Then....NOTHING, for more than two months! I finally received my order on May 8. To top it off, the packaging of one of the tricks was crushed and torn. From Aaron:
Mr. Kahane, I apologize. You're exactly right in the events. I dropped the ball on your order. I can assure you however, with the help of your feedback this is an opportunity to fix the problem that caused the delay.
– GARY HUGHES, SURREY, UK
Great experience shopping with you- efficient, communicative & fast. My 10yr-old is delighted with his vent puppet & I`m delighted with the price & the level of customer service.

– Sandie Chappell, Sacramento
I placed my order on Friday 4/21, paid for 2-3 day shipping, and expected to have my package by yesterday, which would have been the 2-3 mark. I called today and was told that it was only shipped today! I needed it by Tuesday 4/25. Out of many websites that I found, yours looked most convincing. However, I purchased your 2-3 day delivery which has turned into longer than that and feel like I've been cheated out of money. I appreciate your services, but decline that I will use them again. Contact was horrible. I sent several emails, called several times, finally reached someone that didn't even know what he was doing and "guessed" that my package was going to be on its way.Hello Sandie, Aaron Smith here!
I'm very sorry for the trouble. We did receive your corrected billing zipcode on the 25th and you should have your deck of cards any day now! I gave you a refund for the expedited shipping already... Thank you very much for the business!
– Nancy, Harrisburg
I looked around the internet quite extensively before ordering from the Magic Depot and all I can say is, boy, did I come to the right place!! The site is very easy to use and I was kept informed of the ordering process from beginning to end. The selection is fabulous, the prices are great and the quality of the items I ordered is exactly what I expected or better. The shipping was lightning fast and it was free!! Now who can argue with a deal like that? I'll definitely be shopping here again. A big thank you to Aaron and the staff!!!
– Ian Kirby, Blair, SC
I am extremely pleased with Magic Depot. After using most of the larger internet chains, I have to say Aaron has met or surpassed any of them. Lighting fast shipping and responses to all of my questions, Magic Depot has made a lifetime customer out of me! Thanks!
– Mike Ihrig mikesmagicusa, Penfield, NY
I needed an item that seemed highly unlikely to find VERY FAST for a country club performance. Checking the internet, I discovered it at the Magic Depot. Their having Pay Pal is a BIG BENEFIT to me, as I do not like giving out my credit card information on line or over the phone. I purchased the item on Friday and received it on Monday. A lightning speed delivery. I am now working on the incorporation of it into my act. Their prices and shipping are great and I see other items that I will be ordering in the near future to modify my act. Many thanks!
– chad carter, baltimore MD.
love the price. love the site.its easy to find what ever you want. What ever I was looking for poped right up like it was magic lol.
– Chia, Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia
– sandy, ny

– Elsie, Trentum PA
I was very happy with my purchase. I had hunted for this items for some time, finally resorting to Google and happily found this site. The only other site that had what I wanted was located in Canada and I preferred to deal within the states. Thanks again for your good service and prompt shipping.
– Sean, Claremore, OK
Excellent service! Even though there was a delay in my shipment (USPS typical sloth), I was kept informed of the delay. The staff at Magic Depot was very helpful with my order. If you are in the Tulsa area, I would HIGHLY recommend checking out the store! Excellent atmosphere, huge selection, and very friendly staff await to answer all your questions. If they don't know the answer, which isn't very often, they will find it for you. Keep up the great work!
– Diego , Italy
The product that I have acquired is high-quality, thanks Magic Depot for the seriousness that it offers to its customers.
– Terry Davis, Sedalia Missouri

– MagoStevo, England
Quality Services, great communication, clear cut shipping fee and Aaron Smith is the nicest man selling our art. Can't recommmend more. Well done!

I was kept in the loop regarding the status of my order the whole way from placing the order until it was shipped. Since it was a backorder I suspected a long wait but it was shipped out in a very timely manner. I will happily do business with Aaron and the Magic Depot again!
– Jerome, Salt Lake

Just magical service! Everything is fast and smooth. I'll surely buy more things from here. I prefer this place 100x times better than Penguin or Magic Smith!
– Steve, Shropshire, UK
Fantastic service. I received all the items ordered in perfect condition and amazingly fast. I placed an order in the UK the same day as the one placed with yourselves, you got here first. A pleasure to do business with you. The Classic Force DVD is incredible value for money and highly recommended.
– Alan T, UK
Thanks for the excellent service. Product arrived today just over a week after ordering. This is good considering it had to go from USA to UK via Customs. I, like others on your site, was kept fully up to date on the process of delivery and mailing of the product. It is a pity that other providers don't act in the same way you do. But there again maybe you are pleased about that as people will deflect to your site. There are some good providers in the UK and some that I wouldn't use again. But have been pleasantly surprised by the service offerred by a number of USA firms.
– Al Lampkin, Burbank, California
No one has ever shipped merchandise to me this fast! I will go back to this site again to order items. I bought Simon Lovell's Man Of Danger video tapes 1, 2 & 3. Very entertaining and clever close-up magician who knows how to get responses. He explains ever routine, too.
– Kathy Fulton, Cupertino, CA
Excellent service. Item was as described and made a good anniversary gift for my husband, the magician.
– Kevin Le, hillsborough

– Osmar, Burke, VA
Definately the best place to obtain magic at a "magical" price........their orders arrive faster than you can say "abracadabra,"and they offer a great variety of products......simply the best "magic source" I have found.......
– Stef Yordanova, Lenhartsville,PA
This was an amzing online experience ! Not only they were really professional ( fast shipping , constant update on the order ) but when they made a mistake and sent me to items instead of one , they let me keep the exstra one as a gift . At first I thought that for April fools they are making jokes with double the order with the pay of one thing :) YOU ROCK!
– adrienne Kanter, San Antonio
I was kept up to date on the process of delivery and mailing of the product. It felt good to have personal and caring service.
– Randy Phillips, California
What a terrific company, with excellent management, staff, quality service, and quality products. I have dealt with many companies in my years of business, and have found none better than Magic Depot.
The shipping is second to none with products being delivered rapidly, even when they cannot control the carrier. The personal, professional service and communication are something people in any industry could strive to emulate.
Aaron, Thank You for creating and operating such an organization with whom it is a pleasure to deal.
If you are looking for quality product, with exceptional service, and someone who stands behind their products, there is no one I would recommend more than the people at "Magic Depot"
– John Riggs, Bloomington IN
I appreciate the quality of service and product you've provided for me.
I've been a performer for forty years, been to a lot of magic dealers, some good, some very good, and some not worth a dime. I think you're very good, and thanks again
– Don De Marzio, New York
I have now placed three orders with The Magic Depot and I am delighted with the delivery service. Besides being so economical (free delivery) it is extremely timely. I can't believe the speed in which you deliver product. Keep up the great work. No other companies match you.

I emailed the Magic Depot a question about my order and got a response back instantly. My order shipped out and I received it the next day. I'm using the trick I bought for a movie shoot, and because it shipped so fast it's one less thing I have to worry about. Very impressive service.
– Mike, Alabama
As a first time customer i'm extremely satisfied with purchasing products from Magic Depot. Email correspondence was great!!. And my products where shipped very fast. I will definetly be doing business again with Magic Depot. Great Job!!!
– Laurent , Quebec
Thanks Aaron for your amazing prices! I would like if your prices would be a bit lower than they are now. Why don`t you open stores all around the world like in Laval which is in Canada (Quebec). If you would have better and lower prices maybe alot more people would buy stuff from you site. I`m sure that there would be more people who would be more interested in your site and also they would talk way more about your fabulous site!!! Hello Laurent!
I don't want folks to judge us by our cheap prices. Service and helping you be the best magician possible is my goal. Besides, my free shipping is hard to top! Thanks for the feedback!
– Joe Fortune, Leixlip, Ireland
Congratulations Aaron on a super service. Excellent products and prices with super fast delivery! Looking forward to future orders.

Great products, great prices, great service. Many thanks and keep up the good job!!
– Bob Richards, Stillwater
Months and months ago I ordered Harry Anderson's 3 Card Prince. And it was shipped today. A few problems arose...like Hurrricane Katrina where Harry Anderson is located in New Orleans.
BUT Aaron stayed in touch the whole time and even tried to find it in other shops to complete my order. I have never had such good and personal service buying anything, anywhere. Magic or otherwise.
However, I must say that a really good magician would have made Katrina disappear. Well, I guess that could apply to me as well.
Thanks for all your help and effort in being a great supplier!!
– Rick Green, Nashville, TN
Once again, great service!!! Three times in the past two weeks, and everything was done and received as it should have been! You guys are the best!

Immaculate service, promptly shipped and the moment there was a discrepency in the product delivered it was immediately resolved without delay.

– Matt Webster, Columbus, OH
Placed Two orders with Magic Depot and received both within two days of order, There was one problem with one item that was ordered, it was confused for another that had a similar item # and discription, but after a couple of phone calls, it was taken care of right away ( I beleive by Aaron's son-in-law). all in all the experience was a great one and I look forward to doing business with you guys again soon!!!!!
– Artifice, Sydney
I ordered some stuff from the magic depot a week or so ago. Not only was it dispatched within a couple of hours of the order being placed but it arrived today (VERY fast considering it had to come to Australia). Later when I emailed with a query, I was emailed by Aaron very quickly and he went out of his way (and I suspect it was a LONG way out of his way) to find an answer to my question. I could not be happier with the service I have received From Aaron and Magic Depot And as of now they have replaced my local dealers (in Sydney) as my sole supplier for all things magic. Well done you guys!
– Linda Harper, Louisiana
A+ service. I love my realistic sleeping cats. Thanks

I've bought 3 things from this site and I would continue to shop here! I would certainly give 5 stars for the friendly and reliable service!
– Steven Freedman, Reisterstown
Hey Aaron! Thanks for the fast shipping and friendly service. I ordered a Wizard PK Ring and I'm having great fun with it already. It looks much like a wedding band and fits nicely. As for it's magnetic strength, I find it to be just perfect for everyday wear. I can perform a vanish or stop a watch but not worry about my fingers becoming glued to desks and such. I'm looking forward to doing more magical business at The Magic Depot. Well done!
– randon s. jesser, riverside,california
Without question, The Magic Depot provided the fastest and most thoughtful service of any magic dealer with whom I've done business in my 43 years in Magic. Thanks Aaron; you've just gotten a new lifetime customer!
– WILLIAMS STREET MAGIC, MINNEAPOLIS,MN
thank you Aaron for such prompt service on our order, 3 days from the ordering to receiving it's just excellent service all the way around.
thank you, DON W.
– Andy Hurst, Somerset, UK
Super fast shipping and really well packaged. Plus Aaron provided me with some great help pre-sale too. I'm in England but I got my stuff just as fast as many UK dealers would have got it to me. I got notice the item shipped on Friday and it was with me Wednesday.
Top service - I'll be using the Magic Depot a lot more in the future.
– Brad, California
First time buyer. Fast delivery (and it was free!) Although my package was missing one item, Aaron was quick to remedy the situation, sending out the missing item quickly and it arrived in my mailbox just a few days later! Now that's what I call responsive service, and I'll definitely be ordering from The Magic Depot in the future.
– N. Thomas, Texas
Very fast shipping, great products. Thanks Magic Depot for the great service!
– Erik Carlson, Rocklin, CA
Great service, great site, I definately trust the Magic Depot
– P. Ramsey, Ypsilanti
Very impressed by your company. Your website is great and makes ordering a breeze. The follow-up emails kept me up-to-date till my order arrived, which was super fast. Also, thanks for the added bonus...the magic trick...I can't wait to try it out!
– Phil Peterson, Houston
Exceeded my expectations on shipping. Ordered Monday night, shipped Wednesday, received Friday. (I'm reasonably certain that if I'd placed my order Monday morning I'd have gotten it Thursday.) Admittedly, I was a little alarmed at what appeared to be a long time to pack / ship. I thought, "I'll be lucky to get this next week. Imagine my *very* pleasant surprise when I got to the office to see the box on my desk. Rock on Aaron - I'll buy again.
– Lenn Millbower, Davenport, FL
Instead of processing a refund of $35.00, they processed a refund of $.35. Do not do business with them! I am the author of the published works Show Biz Training, Training with a Beat, Cartoons for Trainers and Game Show Themes for Trainers and a professional speaker and trainer of trainers. I have business ties and partners all over the world and do not remember the last time anyone has tried to flim-flamed me in this way. From Aaron:
I see we corrected that mistake and refunded you the correct amount. Otherwise, I trust your experience with us was perfect. Thank you very much for the business!
– D. Flores, Phoenix Az
Very fast service. I highly recomend The Magic Depot. Keep up the good work Aaron.
– Lance Platt, Sioux City, IA
I received my order today, and I must say, that I am quite satisfied with my purchases. I found the E-mailed updates on the order's status very helpful. The shipping was exceptionaly fast. I recieved my order only two days after the E-mail confirming my order had been sent. My order took about five days to process but the step by step email updates made the wait go by much faster. I would highly recommend the Magic Depot to anyone looking for great prices and excellent customer service. Note:
Thank you for the great feedback! In the future, if you pay by credit card or PayPal instead of an E-Check, we can get the order out the same day usually! Thanks again!
– Isaac, Malaysia
I will call you insane if you try other online magic shop. Aaron is helpful and reliable. This is the first time I see online shop does not give any excuses when they make a mistake. Aaron is honest and direct. Highly recommend Magic Depot.
– Warrick Holfeld, Montana
Finally found something I've been looking for, for a while. And it was a good price. I ordered it and their e-mails where friendly and kept me informed every step of the way. I recieved my item extremely fast. They are a great magic shop I'll be doing plenty of business with.
– Teddyboy, New York, NY
I was treated efficiently and honestly by the Depot. I had ordered the wrong item and it was exchanged, no hassle.

What can I say, the service is too good to be true!
– Bob Bailey, Arlington, VA
A WARNING TO OTHER MAGICIANS: ONLY order from REPUTABLE dealers, like Aaron at The Magic Depot, Ellusionist.com, etc.! I made the mistake of ordering from Abracadabra Magic (abra4magic.com) just to give them a try, and WASTED my money!!! I would've been hard-pressed to find crappier merchandise at a "Dollar Store!" It was ALL poorly/cheaply made, non-working JUNK!!! PLEASE learn from my mistake: STICK WITH HONEST, QUALITY MERCHANTS like Aaron at Magic Depot and the good people at Ellusionist.com!
By the way, Aaron, you might want to consider expanding your "rating range" to include "EXCELLENT!"
– Anders, Borås, Sweden
awesome, it took about 7 weeks to get my package but i dont really care cause customer services and prices are good and the free shipping is absolutely priceless.
– B.Dowler, Ohio
What can you say that hasn't already been said. Aaron cares about his customers!!!
The one thing that I like about the Magic Depot is that they have what you want, and it's in stock.
I would like to share this with future customers that are thinking about doing business with The Magic Depot:
First: Aaron Smiths Character, A1 in my book.
Second: When he says he is going to ship your order, you can trust him that it will arrive in good condition and quick. I ordered some things for Christmas thinking that their would be no way to have them in time. The next day I read my e-mail it said that the items had shipped, the next following day here comes ups knocking on my door with a package from The Magic Depot.
I know I will be doing future business with them, just like other satisfied customers will be too....
p.s. Thanks for turning me onto magicbroadcast.com.
– Lynn, Northern Ireland

I am quite please with my first overseas order : The delivery time is really good, as announced : 5 business days. The goods are as described and the price is good as well. There is nothing left to expect.
Have a good christmas.
– Kim Sweeney, Big Island of Hawaii
You delivered everything I needed! No back orders...I like that.
The Temple Screens were like I remebered them from years ago, only the quality has improved. These screens will really hold up. Thanks! and it was fast, too.
– Ralph, Sydney, Australia
You and your team are unbeatable magicians!

Six days, order to delivery, including weekends! Remarkable!

Thanks to you my 12 year old magician will have a magical Christmas.
Ralph, Sydney, Australia
– Daniel, Boca Raton
Aaron, Thank you for the hi-quality products, fast shipping, reasonable prices, no s/h costs, and great customer service.
– Forrest Lim, Malaysia
I haven't received my package yet due to it's being held by customs. Though Aaron is so generous to give me a store credit for the total amount of the order. And he even said if my package was released just accept it as a gift. Wow, their customer service is the best. Just shop here you'll never regret. Trust me with this one.
– Joyce, Fremont, CA
My goodness -- what a neat place to do business!! I had such excellent response to my first order, which was in my mailbox 2 days after ordering. Aaron corresponded with me quite a lot while helping get my , even the "silly" ones. It was like we were talking on the telephone. I appreciate the friendliness and help, because I haven't done much ordering on line. I plan to do more business with this company if the opportunity arises!
– Greg Kubas, Salem
I couldn't believe how fast I got what I ordered. Now that's what I call customer service. Exactly what I wanted. I will order again for sure!
– Brad Avakian, Oregon
We needed our canes on short notice because of an upcoming show that they were going to be used in. You worked quickly and made sure that we got the canes just in time. They worked perfectly every time and were a hit with the audience. You were prompt, your product was flawless, and your price was the best we found. Thank you - we will be back again.
– Donna Kean, South Carolina
Once again, a trouble free order. Very quick with the shipping, item came well packaged and the emails kept me updated nicely. Thanks for the great service Aaron Smith!
– Jacob Eha, Florance
I highly prefer The Magic Depot. I don't like any more stupid web sites.
– Douglas, Honolulu, Hi.
Shipping was GREAT!! Love the items that I bought. Will gladly do business with THE MAGIC DEPOT again.
– Eric Koons, Friday Harbor Wa
I am very impressed, I made four orders of over two hunred dollars each from four different online magic shops. I recieved my magic depot order two days later. as for the other three, well theyre trickling in ....slowly! Arnold said it ," Ill Be Back!"
– Alberto Navarrete, Hobart, IN
The Spider Pen I received was not working when I received it, so I called Mr. Smith and left him a message to let him know it wasn't working and that I would buy a new battery to find out if it was just a battery problem, and not a pen problem. I called Mr. Smith later to let him know the pen worked with the new battery, and he gave a $5.00 instant credit to replace the cost of the battery (he would have replaced the pen, if needed). I will continue to purchase from the Magic Depot, not just because of the instant credit I received, but because of the evident personal and helpful approach Mr. Smith showed as he fully answered other questions I had in regards to the Spider Pen. Great selection, great prices, great service, great support. I rate the Magic Depot overall performance: EXCELLENT!.
– Lloyd McDonald, So. Utah
Ordering from a dealer whom you've never done business with can be quite a test of faith. Aarons prices were too good to walk away from. Across the board he beat all of my individual price comparisons with other dealers.
My fears immediately subsided when I experienced the most rare concept in business today, imagine calling to find you actually speak with the owner. Aaron’s personal touch is reminiscent of the old time magic dealer I grew up with. His suggestions mean you no longer are purchasing magic blind on the internet.
I was concerned about delivery time; he matched or beat my closest dealers hands down. 3 days from the time I hung up the phone till I received the order on my door step.
I can’t say enough about the overall experience of shopping at Magic Depot. If you are a serious investor in magic like me, or make an occasional purchase, Aaron is a safe bet.
There is no question who will be receiving my future business.
– Matt, Ohio
Looks like you work very hard to achieve personal service and satisfy your customers. So many businesses say it, but don't mean it. I wish you the best and if you ever feel the need to hire more staff, I'll be the first in line!
– Teh, Singapore
The package arrived only a few days after it shipped. This is the only site that I know for free international shipping.
– David Tafoya, Kingsburg, California
I whole heartedly agree with the customer service being great. I paid and asked for next day delivery and got it. I had a dead line to meet and the excellant service I received helped me to meet my obligation. You wont go wrong using the Magic Depot for your magic needs.
– Jared Manley, London
What a great way to order your magic goods! Living in the Uk, I thought that the delivery time would be long but I've received my order in under a week. Thanks Aaron for a great service!!..you now are my no.1 supplier!
– Jason Miller, South Carolina
The Magic Depot is truly great place to shop. When my order arrived there was a slight manufacturing defect that prevented the item from working properly. Aaron quickly accepted my return and got my replacement out in a timely manner. Whats even better is Aarons awsome customer service. Magic Depot is dealer I wish I had right here at home.... friendly and fast... Thanks friend!
– Paul, Fullerton
All the reviews were right about this company. Very good communications and LIGHTNING fast shipping! I will not hesitate to order again in the future.
– Len, Singapore
I just received my parcel today and I must say that this is a superb place to purchase anything associated to magic. The service is top-class and delivery is lightning speed. And if that isn't a reason for you to start ordering from this site, how about free international shipping for orders above $40! Where else could anyone get a deal better than this? Moreover, you even get additional discounts if your orders are above $100, $200, or $300. Service is friendly and it has been a huge pleasure dealing with this site. I will not hesitate to place future orders. My suggestion is that more buyers add reviews for the products they have bought, it will make choosing products much easier, but overall a superb site. Keep it up Aaron!
– Doug, Honolulu, Hi.
Very fast shipping at a resonable price. I'd gladly do more business wiht THE MAGIC DEPOT.
– J. Wessmiller, Richmond
Being a real 'worker' in the business, I've dealt with tons of dealers and shops to feed my magic addiction. Never has the experience been so enjoyable and easy as it was with the Magic Depot. Aaron really (and I mean REALLY) strives to go that extra mile to make his customers happy. I'll be doing business again with you soon!
– Pierre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Very fast shipping. Well packaged. Good pricing. Actually placing my 3rd order. Keep up the good work.
– Alena, Brisbane
We run a scenery shop in Brisbane, CA (SF Bay area) and we just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was navigating your website! Clearly your inventory outshines the rest! Our items arrived FAST and in perfect shape! Hope to do business with you again in the future! Thanks so MUCH!!!
– Andrew Kent, Ontario
I placed an order, paid for it. I wanted the item by the weekend and paid for the quicker shipping. I read the item description and it said, "Buy it today and it's on the way!" It still said packaging on my order more than 24 hours later. Sent an email, no response. Not impressed. Note from Aaron Smith,
"I tried to call you after my response to your inquiry bounced, but your line goes directly to voice mail. Your Super Sharpie did ship and you should have it by the weekend. Thank you so much for the business!"
– U. Toothaker, W. Paris
Your service is unbeatable. Thank you for shipping so promptly and letting me know about the status of my order at each step. This customer is very satisfied!
– Steve McKissick, New Port Richey, FL
The experience of working with Magic Depot is like watching
a really good magic video--your spellbound throughout the
They take the business of buying magic on-line to a grand
new level--Let your Converse "Do The Levitation"...Magic Depot's raising the standards --And that's NO ILLUSION!
New Port Richey, FL
– Michael Reed, Nashville,Tn
Got the order QUICK!!
Great Products!! Staff seems so Polite and like they definately want your business and are concerned about YOU the CUSTOMER!!!!!
Highly recomended and I'll BE BACK!!!!!
– Steve Vogel, East Brunswick, NJ
This was my first experience with The Magic Depot, but it won't be the last. As soon as I placed my order, I could tell that Aaron Smith knows how to run a business. He provides something rare... service. Now I have a favorite magic dealer. Also, he had the item I wanted....the other magic dealers claimed it was no longer available. And, of course, free shipping is a very nice touch. Thanks, Aaron!
– Bob Bailey, Arlington, VA
Aaron is one of those rare merchants who knows that what is MOST important in his shop is not his merchandise - which, by the way, is absolutely beyond compare in quality, variety and price - but rather his CUSTOMERS. I've shopped the internet for years now, and I have NEVER encountered an e-store so dedicated to keeping their customers satisfied and happy as The Magic Depot. What's more, Aaron's customer service is so direct, quick and personal, I feel like I've gained another friend who has my best interests at heart and is truly interested in helping me to become the best magician I can be. THANK YOU VERY SINCERELY, AARON!!
– Kris, Columbia, South Carolina
This is the first place I will look at for all my supply needs. The customer service is great (and fast response time!). Prices are unbeatable. And free shipping? What more could you ask for? Outstanding.
– Wade CLemons, Ft. Collins, Colorado
THe selection and service was incredible. I truly appreciate the speed with which my order was filled and shipped. I will be doing some performing this weekend and did not have everything I needed however with about ten minutes on your website and the fast delivery my worries dissappeared.
– Clarissa Amato, Pennsylvania
The service keeps getting better and better.
– Charlie Perschbacher, Cabot, Arkansas
The product I ordered is excellent. I ordered the product on 12 October 2005 and received it on the 15th of October 2005. All I can say is WOW. I did purchase priority mail for quicker delivery, Great service!!!
– Doug Bryant, Moorpark, CA
I couldn't believe the fast service and quick turn around! I ordered a lemon bill in knife Saturday and had it in my hands the following Tuesday! Competitive prices, coupled with great service, made me a happy returning customer!
– Mark Martini, Petaluma, California
Three cheers to The Magic Depot for being everything a magic shop should be! Low prices, great selection, and FAST service! They even let you return or exchange something if you don't like it. That is something I've NEVER seen from another magic shop and I've been buying magic for decades. That Aaron Smith is amazing. He even corresponds with you personally every step of the way, and is always available for you. The Magic Depot is the ONLY magic shop I will ever use from now on.
– Wilhelm Eberhard, San José, Costa Rica
I am very satisfyed with the quality of the products, the free shipping, the attractive prices and the great customer service. Buying at the Magic Depo is cheaper and better than buying at local magic shops out of the US. Just check with your local customs authorities before buying anything. If your order's value exceeds a certain amount, or uses certain carriers, it might be taxable. In Costa Rica, for example, if your order exceeds $100, you should pay a tax of about 30%. But you can have the tax waived for up to $500 of merchandise every 6 months. If you know your custom's regulations well, the Magic Depo may be a lot better than almost any local magic shop you can find outside of the US.
– Kristin Barber, Bartlesville, Oklahoma
Aaron is a top-notch businessman in my book! My shipment arrived lickety split, and each product was awesome! Every business should follow in The Magic Depot's footsteps because they do things right. . . excellent communication, too, from the moment you place your order to follow-up about your shipment. I can't say enough wonderful things about Aaron Smith and The Magic Depot! A+++++++!
– F. de Vries, Netherlands
Made several orders from the Magic Depot and the communication is excellent! They'll instantly let you know if an item will take somewhat longer to send. Not to mention the prices, can they get even lower?! I submit that they can not.
Best magic shop I know, ran by the nicest shopkeep I know.
– Bill Putnam, Glendale, California
I've made many purchases from Aaron on this site. He always has quality products and usually at a cheaper price than anywhere else (including E-bay!!). Shipping is fast too. Thanks Aaron!
– Kevin Lyons, West Virginia
I received my products in four days with free shipping and very good packing and at really fantastic pricing.
Highly recomend this site too all.
– Lenn Lamoureux, Lady Lake Florida
Aaron, rec'd the india ITR's in record time..Also was exactly what I was looking for will order two more...thanks for your help.

I own and operate an emissions testing station. I do 200 inspections per month. Advertising in conventional sources has proven ineffective, so I have developed a venue I call "maniac marketing." The most significant give away is pacing a carrot in your Dime-In-Ring and gicing away a one carrot diamond ring. The response is hilarious with yuks all around.
I spend thousands a year on "kooky" give aways such as animal hats, cardboard classic cars, unique rubber ducks and the like. I seek a certain clientele and give them these kooky gifts to make them feel special. Each person you meet knows 8 people. go figure the amount of word of mouth I receive.
– Roibeard Bailey, Washington, DC
The website is impressive, the product selection enormous, the prices very competitive, and the service exemplary! I received my order quickly and in fine shape. I'll definitely be coming back (in fact, I'm awaiting my second order as I write this)! My only recommendation for the website - and perhaps this is something that's actually a "work in progress" - is that some of the product descriptions are lacking, i.e., not there -- several of the tricks I selected to view had only the name of the trick with no description.
– Mika Viljanen, Pori, Finland
I decided to have a go with a company I had never dealt with (or even heard of). Placed my order last Thrusday and it got here yesterday (Wednesday). I have NEVER in my life had anything shipped this fast-and this was to ANOTHER COUNTRY!
The online order status checking feature works like a charm. Highly recommended!
– Pat Darienzo, Long Island, NY
I took a chance ordering from a company I had never dealt with before, but the prices were too good to pass up. The pieces I ordered were top quality and delivered on time. I wouldn't hesitate to place future orders with the Magic Depot. Thanks, guys!
– Bob Richards, Stillwater, Oklahoma
I cannot express the high level of service I received. When one product was not available Aaron and Magic Depot went out to find it for me from a competitor.
I also bought the mind reading Bear Bob-O. I am really suprised and happy about the quality of the product for the low price.
Lastly, the communication, response and shipping was helpful and immediate.
– Ron, Las Vegas
WOW! I got everything in 2 days! How much faster can you get? Honestly, very cheap prices and very great shipping service! Thanks Aaron for making Real Magicians - Real Happy!
– Eric Lopez , Sparks, NV
My experience with the Magic Depot was excellent, I got my package very quickly and I was notified with E-mails every step of the way. I will definately be ordering from this shop again.
Thanks Mr. Smith, keep up the great work!
– joshua, london

– D WILLIAMS, MINNEAPOLIS MN

A CUSTOMER FOR LIFE.
– Ken Carnahan, Temecula, CA.
Let's see.. Good prices, quick and easy ordering process, nice website, fast shipping, well packaged.... In this day and age.. that is magic!
Great experience at the magic depot. Thanks again !
– ADONIS, FRANCE
I've been ordering from the US for ten years : This simply the best and fairest team to deal with.
The fair price, the very fast treatment for the shipment ( only 7 days for FRANCE ) which is FREE for INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS ( order above $40) , the emails keeping you informed along al the process, the real honesty behind it, all these things make it the best Quality / Price I've met. I've really never deal with such level of quality of the service. Knowing it's a small family team deserve our profound respect and admiration.
– Xavier, Charlotte, NC
This is the best magic store online! Great customer service... Aaron Smith even helped me to decide which trick would be the best for me. I am a customer 4-Life! Thanks for all the help A++++
– Tim Mannix, Los Angeles
With so many choices nowadays as to magic vendors it's nice to discover Aaron Smith and The Magic Depot. In a single transaction you've earned my customer loyalty and sincere respect. Not exactly a common experience these days with substandard customer caregivers the norm. In fact, it has you sticking out like a sore thumb. Your professionalism, thorough attention to detail, and prompt service are valuable, appreciated and unfortunately somewhat rare. Hey, how can we duplicate you?
I chose the slower mail delivery, but it seems like my package arrived almost the next day. How'd you do it? To magicians magic tricks in the mail is like Christmas on the way, so thanks for getting my order out that door so quickly. You make buying magic just that much more fun. If ever I grow up, I wanna be just like you…Bravo chief!
– Kevin Cramer, Butler PA
I am a part time magician and I search out items all the time to add to my show. I go to many other magic sites to read reviews and watch video demos and once I decide to buy an item I always come to the magic depot. I don't mean most of the time I always check here. The prices are always better and the shipping prices cann't be beat. Most of my orders are over $40.00 so the shipping is free. Aaron even took things a step further with my last order which was small. An item I wanted was on sale but the sale ended before my payday I emailed Aaron and got a response within minutes and he told me to check out with the item and put check or money order as my payment method and once I got paid to email him and he would tell me how to put it no my card. Aaron is excellent to do business with. I do with the site had better pictures of the items.
– B.Sorgman, West Virginia
Am very disappointed. Ordered Himber Wallet Book and don't know if it is on backorder or if store credit was issued. Can't get Aaron to respond. Have had great service in the past, but this has really turned me off! Aaron Smith Writes:
I really want to apologize. This is completely my fault. I have no excuse Bruce. I should have gotten that store credit to you the moment we sent the backorder notice. It won't happen again!
– Donna Mehmed, Hampshire, United Kingdom
I purchased a Charlie McCarthy vent doll from The Magic Depot. I've wanted a vent doll my whole life! I'm 30 years old and finally got one! I am so thrilled and so pleased! I am jumping for joy in the UK! The item is just wonderful!!! I was served a treat by Aaron at The Magic Depot. You're a sweetie Aaron for making my dreams come true! Charlie McCarthy arrived clean! Fast! And like I was right special. The service was so great and to be served by a proper gent… Oh my word I couldn't be happier! The doll, service, and Aaron are all awesome! I am just thrilled to pieces! There's not a lot in this world to feel cheerful about, but Aaron, heres a kiss from me! Thank you for truly making one girl's life here in the UK special. From my home to yours and all that reads this... peace! This site is fab! fantastic! Thank you... Thank you... Thank you!
– Debbie, Walnut Creek
Excellent service. Nice to receive the e-mails confirming orders and shipping. Prices are very competitive!
– Randy Stewart, Texas
I recently ordered a few items from Aaron. His guarantee states competitive prices and free shipping on orders over $40 USD. I actually found some of the items I needed at prices lower than other sites. I ordered the items online and received the items a week later with free of shipping costs or hassles. In the future, if The Magic Depot has what I’m looking for they’ll be having my business.
He's got a good thing going here!
Randy Stewart, Texas USA
– Donna Kean, South Carolina
Excellent service and came well packaged. I got the email to say it was shipped on the Saturday, and it arrived in Monday's post! My only slight disappointment was waiting 5 days from confirmation of packaging to actual shipping... but then I'm just impatient like that :P
– Raul Heredia, Gaithersburg, Maryland
Hi, this was the first time that I ordered something from The Magic Depot and I must say that I am very happy with the delivery! It was very fast (only one day since the items were shipped via ground service). I am also impressed with the quality of the items and the great prices. I will order more from The Magic Depot for sure!
– Judy Olson, Endwell
MY son loved the sponge balls and UFO Whirling Card. He recieved it faster then we were told and that thrilled him. He has spent every day giving us a magic show. I am sure that there will be more orders from us in the near future. Great site and super service.
– Bob Davis, Ft Lauderdale
Just got a Super Sharpie. Loved the trick. The service was great. I will buy all the rest of my magic from Magic Depot
– Jim Nugen, Oklahoma City
Tip of the Top Hat!! It's so nice to find a full service Magic shop just down the road, so to speak. You guys are fast, efficient, and answer all correspondence in a flash. Keep up the great work!

Nobody comes close to the service you give. Fast , personal and I saved a lot of money. Thank You.
– Jim Tunnicliffe, So. California
A nice shopping experience (beautiful web site!), and I love that they don't stick it to you on shipping. I ordered at midnight on a Friday, and my shipment arrived in perfect shape on Tuesday! Great communication all the way through. I'll be checking The Magic Depot for any future magic needs!
– James, Bedford
I was very impressed with the D'lites that I purchased. Recieved them fast and am enjoying watching others enjoy the magic. Great prices too.

– Brent, New Zealand
The Parcel arrived today here in New Zealand! Aaron, thanks to you and The Magic Depot for the fast efficient service! Much appreciated. This is my first order from you and will be the first of many. I have been involved in magic for 20 years and perform in many nightclubs and casinos with our Illusion/Hypnosis show tour. It is a pleasure to deal with a professional shop such as yours.
– John Lovick, Los Angeles
Extremely fast service. No shipping charges. Well packaged, and good communication. Very happy with my purchase.

Thanks Aaron. I appreciate your undestanding of my original order. Your prompt response to my inquiry and credit to my account was very much appreciated. You went out of your way to make my situation feel very comfortable to me... and because of this, you have made me a customer of yours for life!
– Prof. Wonderfool, France

Well Done Aaron! Very patient and helpful with every question asked. Fast respone with a good reply. I Didn't give all five stars because of that backorder lol! But, overall The Magic Depot is THE BEST! Keep up the good work.
– Jack Nell, Florida
Thank you so much for the fast delivery Aaron!

The items arrived in good shape, beautifully packed! It was a pleasure to do business with you. Aloha!
– Floyd Morrow, San Jose, CA
OK I give up - how did you do it? I placed an order on the 20th, got an email on the 22nd saying that it had been shipped and the mailman delivered it at noon on the 23rd. The order was packed well and everything was in great shape. Thanks - you guys are really magic.
– Don Bursell, Mora, MN
I ordered the Ron Bauer booklet on Tuesday, and it arrived on Friday!!! The price on the item was less than I could buy it anywhere else also. I appreciated that very much. Great company to do business with.
– Larsen, California
First rate service with fast shipping and communication. Never have to worry if they got your order.
– L. Tsunoda, Honolulu
I was really satisfied with the feedback that I received when I had questions regarding shipping. There was a very friendly rapport with customer service and myself that made me feel very comfortable. The prices were good and shipping was very quick and quite reasonable. I would definitely order from The Magic Depot again and would recommend them to my friends!
– Rafi Nori, Quebec Canada
WOW! I ordered the Black Tiger Deck Friday night, they shipped it on Monday, and it arrived the very next day! Thanks guys! The cards came in great condition and really fast! Thanks Magic Depot!
– George, New York
Excellent! Love the items! Everything BRAND NEW. Aaron runs an impecable magic shop with impecable products (and was very very friendly throughout the entire order process). Two thumbs up for Aaron Smith and The Magic Depot!
– Nicholas, Pennsylvania
I whole heartily recommend The Magic Depot. Customer service is excellent with quick email responses that keep you on top of everything. And, don't pass up The Complete Half-Baked if you want something that will REALLY get those creative juices flowing!
– Terry Brewster, San Jose, CA
I highly recommend The Magic Depot! Aaron was very courteous; kept me completely up to date and made sure the whole process of purchasing from him was painless. I was surprised my order arrived so quickly! Aaron, thank you very much! I WILL be purchasing from you again.
– A. Epstein, Staten Island
I ordered twice in the last couple of weeks and the items arrived very quickly. I was pleasantly surprised at how fast it came. Prices were great as well. Only thing, I kept leaving email and phone messages and never recived a reply to my question.
– Joop, Netherlands
I ordered a Spider Pen and I received it exactly a week later and completely free of shipping costs! Only if the Magic Depot wants to get more customers from the Netherlands, Aaron will have to include ‘Netherlands’ in the country list for new accounts. Now I had to perform a special trick: I initially created an account saying that my country was USA and then I could update it to the Netherlands.
– Ian Saville, London, UK
Goods arrived very quickly (within a week of ordering, despite the warning that I might have to wait ten working days unless I paid extra for postage), with no surcharges and no tax to pay. And the price was good
– Marlo Clayton, Norfolk
I was very satisfied with their timely service and the product was just what I expected. The magic Depot has made one little boy and his mother very happy. I will surely do business with them in the near future.
– Philip Chancellor, San Antonio
Magic Depot was a 100% pleasure to do business with! As stated in the Magic Depot ad the product I ordered WAS in stock and yes folks, SENT THE SAME DAY! I was in dire need of this order (Ultimate Flashback) as the one I had for the last year was stolen by an audience member! I ordered a replacement and it was in San Antonio with 2 days to spare! Great job Aaron, I will shop here again!
– Darren, Portsmouth, UK
Aaron, you are a star - great selection, incredible personal service from a REAL person who cares. Not forgetting, of course, that famous "Freakin Awesome" Free Worldwide Shipping!
I'm in heaven. Thank you.
– Mago Ferdy, españa

Great job. Thanks Aaron!
– Cynthia Mace, Weston
Seldom have I encountered such a friendly and super customer service! Thank you very much. If I think about Magic Equipment, Magic Depot is and will be my first choice!
Thank you Aaron.
– German Marey, Spain
I received the order very fast. The prices are very cheap. I received an email with every detail of the order process. Free shipping! The Magic Depot pays the courier service, but I had to pay toll taxes, VAT, etc. These taxes must be paid at the reception of the order. If you request US Mail, the taxes are usually much less.
– Joey Bond, Los Angeles
Aaron Smith runs a top-notch service with choice effects and great low prices. With appreciation to everyone at The Magic Depot, all the best!
– Bruce Sorgman, Charleston WV
I have now placed several orders and every time the order was received rapidly. Aaron is very helpful. And you know what? He shows appreciation to his customers. WOW! You don't get that too often. Thanks Aaron!
– Javier Soto, Spain
Pefect. I´ll repeat.
– Ian Marshall, Manchester UK
I would just like to say that if you're thinking of using the Magic Depot and you're in the UK, DO IT! Where else can you sit at the PC at ten PM and get e-mail replies almost immediately? Oh, and I also challenge you to find any online store in the UK with a wider choice or cheaper prices!
– Tom Smith, Overland Park, KS
We needed some prizes/giveaways FAST for a volunteer event for our non-profit organization. Aaron Smith and the folks at Magic Depot delivered GREAT products (western-themed puzzles) in plenty of time, at a great price! Thanks!!
– Darryl, Independence
Super fast shipping, Great communication, and excellent prices! Thanks to Aaron and the gang at The Magic Depot. I look forward to future business!!!
– Pete Cooper, Rochester, England
Quick shipment! But the order went missing here in the UK (no fault of The Magic Depot). Aaron kept in daily contact with me to resolve the situation. He never failed to answer all of my emails and stuck with me throughout. He really knows how to look after his customers. It's nice that somebody in this day of age has the time to go out of their way to assist you. Many big companies won't give you the time of day; once they have your money, you're history. Not in this case! Aaron gives 100%!
– Jillian Deriggi, Boulder
Aaron Smith was extremely helpful and the products are amazing!
– Yoshi, Tokyo
I received my order so fast! Thank you so much.
– Justin Kalawaia, Kamuela, Hawaii
Thanks! Recieved item's super fast. Will do business again. ALOHA!!!
– Shelly Beecher, Brentwood, N.Y.
I was impressed that the magic set I ordered for my nephew was shipped and received very quickly.
– Rick Green, Nashville, TN
I ordered on Monday, received the item on Thursday. Not only did I receive the item in a very timely manner, but I knew when it was processed, when it was mailed, everything!
I'll definitely be coming back here for my business.
– Cristian, Germany
The books that I ordered were shipped on Friday and arrived on the following Tuesday. We're are talking about sending the books from the US to Germany. I never got something faster from the US. The emails that were sent to me were also very accurate and always told me the status of my order. So the conclusion is: Very good service and fast delivery. Thanks!
– Ob Urbin, Dallas
Excellent communication, service, and delivery!
– Len, Singapore
I owe Aaron this testimonial. The shipping was lightning fast (once again), even though I ordered a lot more stuff this time. The service was great, though there was a slip up on my part! Great service, great quality. Buy buy buy!
– Nick Zender, Akron, Ohio
I have nothing but praise for The Magic Depot. The service was outstanding and all my orders have arrived here in Ohio within two days... And that's with free shipping! Who could ask for anything more? Low prices, prompt and friendly communication, free shipping! Aaron has it covered. Thanks, Aaron. You have earned my continued support! All the best.
– Bruce Sorgman, Charleston
Aaron, Thanks for the fast service! I received my order in two days! Your service and shipping are second to none. And I really appreciate your help during the order process. You're a class act!
– Adam Allred, Lexington, NC
It was my pleasure to order from the Magic Depot! Great Service, excellent prices, and outstanding variety in products. Everything was shipped and packaged very nicely, and above all, quick! I WILL be doing business with the Magic Depot again and again! Thanks Aaron and everyone else at the Magic Depot!
– Quasimodem, Georgia
About six months ago I decided I wanted to add a little magic to the treatment of my pediatric patients at Scottish Rite Hospital. I bought a couple of very simple tricks, Magic Coloring Book and Dream Bag. They went over very well, but I got the "bug" and so I contacted Aaron via e-mail. I almost hung up the phone when he CALLED me back. The more questions he asked the more I knew that this was a guy who really cares about magic and wants to help even bumble-fingered guys like me be a hit with the kids. "This is unprecedented," I thought to myself! Does the CEO of a major company answer his own e-mails? Does he actually call people back? Not till now! Aaron, I don't know how much business you do, and you are probably not listed on the S&P, but if more businesses followed your model, "treat others as you want to be treated," our country would have more good CEO's at the forefront rather than behind bars. Your six year old probably already knows this, but I will add my two cents worth anyway: YOU ROCK, DUDE! :) Thanks for all your help and attention!
– Jim Maloney, New Jersey
In reading over a number of the testimonials here, I've noticed that a running theme is the excellent customer service. To be honest, after recently placing my first order, I have no clue if his customer service really is good or not. The fact of the matter is that I never had any reason to use it.
Here's what I did: I placed my order (I chose the free shipping option) and went through the quick, easy, and painless ordering system. I immediately received an e-mail stating that my order was being processed. As my order went through the packing and shipping process, I would receive updates via e-mail and on the website letting me know the status of my order. Three days after placing my order, I'm leaving my apartment in the morning and trip over a package on my doorstep. The package , wrapped in enough packing tape to ward off evil postal spies, contained my three items. They were packed securely enough that no matter how hard the post office guys between Oklahoma and New Jersey tried, the books arrived in perfect condition.
So, to sum it up, the ordering system was simple and easy to use, I was kept informed on the status of my order every step along the way, the shipping was free, and my package arrived safe and sound three days later, packed more snugly than a newborn baby wrapped in (Bob) swaddling clothes. I'd say that's a good thing!
– David Jones, Cincinnati
Super job. Great communication and follow up. Low prices - fast shipping - what more could you ask for?
– Jim Nagel, St. Louis
Aaron's customer service is second to none and satisfaction is job 1 at The Magic Depot. I'd buy anytime at this website.
Jim Nagel, Past IBM President
– Breenie, W Sussex, UK
Good communication and friendly, polite service. No problems with shipping to the UK either - all went well. We would recommend Aaron's website for good prices and a wide range of magic tricks, and will use it again.
– Brian Wishnefsky, San Francisco
I ordered some mouth coils at a great price and they came on time. I also love the color quality! The Magic Depot aims to please and that's refreshing when dealing over the web. I can tell Aaron is a smart businessman he know's if he treats you right you'll come back and I will!
– Jerry Alan Foster, Dale City, Virginia
Aaron is the man with the plan. You can't beat free, shipping. His customer service is the best. "The Demented Magician,"
will return for more goodies.
– Sean Cawelti, Los Angeles, CA
Aaron was so kind to help my not for profit theater group get exactly what we needed at a fantastic price! He's a good lad and kind at heart.
– The Bear, California
I would like to take the time to recommend The Magic Depot. It's refreshing to find an honest business.
– Christian, Denmark
When I read that Aaron promised fast delivery and free shipping, I was thinking "Yeah right - like all the rest, that doesn't apply when you live on the other side of the planet." Well, shame on me! I got my order less than a week after it was shipped from the U.S. to Denmark. And there were no hidden or extra costs. I highly recommend The Magic
Depot as a reliable online store!
– Ron Saylor, Bakersfield
The Magic Depot is my #1 Choice for on-line Magic purchases!
Great Selection... Best Prices... Commendable Guarantee... Rocket Speed Shipping... and Aaron Smith to make sure everything runs as Perfect as I just described, non-stop, day after day!
I can't think of an order I have placed, that wasn't shipped the very same day!
Magic Depot... is Simply the Best!!!
– Kaj, Netherlands
Nothing but praise :o) Always speedy communications and items ship fast even to this little corner of the world...and free! And while at it...Get the Hamman DVD's....they are killer!
– Simon Hoi, Singapore
I was surprised to receive my orders within 3 days! And shipping was FREE since my purchase was more than USD 40.00. Incredible service. I would rate the overall performance more than Good.... I Highly recommend The Magic Depot, especially for overseas customers!
Thums up for The Magic Depot team and keep up the excellent service.
Very satisfied customer.
– Alana, Ontario
Aaron was very helpful. I had never ordered anything online before. The service was friendly and fast! I couldn't believe how quickly my products arrived! Really, I can't say enough about this company! Good doesn't describe it. Excellent! I'm looking forward to shopping with The Magic Depot again!
– Mark King, Missoula
Aaron is great to work with. The rope I ordered from him, on his recommendation, is absolutely the best I have used in 24 years of magic. He is knowledgeable, polite and I will be ordering from Aaron again. Thanks Aaron.
– Harvey Jaffe, Huntington Beach, CA
Great, courteous service -- a pleasure to work with!
– Jeff Cauthen, Bartlesville, OK
I've purchased from numerous magic online stores. Without a doubt Magic Depot is the best, fastest and most economical store I have dealt with. I've been very pleased with the professional courtesy, speed and attention given to every order I have placed. Every item has been one of quality. Aaron is the best to do business with!
– Ken Davidson, Wyndmoor, PA
Great service. I placed an order and had most items within a few days. Prompt e-mails kept me informed about my order and when one item was accidentally left out, Aaron took care of it right away for me. These days when you order online you never know what kind of company you are dealing with. This was my first order but certainly not my last. Aaron's customer service is 10 times better than what you get with many large companies. This kind of PERSONAL attention to my order is EXACTLY what I look for in a vendor. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
– Mark Prater, Oklahoma
Gotta love this place! Aaron kept me up to speed on the status of my order every step of the way and even answered a couple of my e-mail questions about illusions that weren't related specificly to the product I ordered. No, I swear I'm not biased just because he is located an hour and forty five minutes away!
– Matt Steinkruger, South Dakota
This site is as good as it gets! Aaron has the best attitude toward his customers. I couldnt find (on ANY other site), better prices. I have only bought ONE trick and I am already clicking my heals. I plan to purchase so many more products! THIS IS MY NEW MAGIC STORE!!!!!!!!
– Joel Balboa, MEXICO
This is the best service you will ever find. I live in Mexico and my orders have arrived very fast and without any problem. Aaron has answered my emails almost inmediatly, and he has helped me to find exactly what im looking for. Dont be afraid of ask for any item if you live in Mexico! Youll get what you ask and much much more!
Este es el mejor servicio que podrás encontrar en internet. Vivo en México y todos mis pedidos han llegado bastante rápido y sin ningún problema. Aaron me ha ayudado a encontrar exactamente lo que busco y contesta todos mis correos casi de inmediato. No tengas miedo de ordenar por cualquier producto si vives en México. Te aseguro que obtendrás lo que esperabas y mucho mucho más.
– Michael Baron, Alta Loma CA
Great magic source, same day free shipping, good prices, and personal customer attention. 1950s customer attitude at the
speed for 2004.
– Dave, London, Ontario
Wow! The day I placed my order was the day it was shipped! Can't beat that! The communication was great, and all my questions were answered! Aaron, I wish more people would take care of their business like you. :) I can't even say anything more, because I have to go practice my new tricks! ;)
– H. Collin, Lab City, Canada
I admit that I am a bit surprised by what happend to my command. I first did an order wich got send 10 days after the paiment. Even if I had asked (and paid) for faster shipping. I did the order on the 30, it got shipped on the 11th, is the 22th and It still has not arrived. I did an other order the same month, which also was put to the mail more than 1 week after the paiment was confirmed. I am hopping that it will be here on time. I know the post is responsible for part of the problem, but the really long packaging delay definitely did not helped. As the website suggested that the order could be delivered within 10 days, I assumed it would, at most, take 20 to 25 days to arrive. Obviously, that assumption was wrong. I must also complain about the fact that many (many) items which, according to the website, should have been aivailable, were not on stock. There was also many items which were discontinued, but were still annonced. There was even an item that I was told on the phone was available and which, finaly was out of stock. I also regret that the store took more than 1 week to inform me that some items were out of stock and would not be available in reasonable delay and they did so only because I called to make sure everything was OK. Actually, I have been informed on the 20th that items I had ordered on the 30th of the last month would not be available.
By the other comments I have seen, I guess that this store is usualy quite efficient. I guess I must have been unluky. The people I talked to were always quite nice and helpfull, even if I am highly dissapointed by the general experience. I still have a few weeks to go before a show and I hope to be able to find the items elsewhere on time. I think this is a great store, but the information on the site is defenitly not reliable and, when ordering thru the phone, it is better to ask them to check twice.
It created huge delays for me and, if what they send doesn't get here on time, The Magic Depot will defenitely have been the worst mistake of my carreer.
Therefore, even if the employees and owners seem really nice and helpful, I will think twice before doing business again.
I might add that, even if the prices are good (quite good actualy), it cost me so much in time and in fast shipping from an other company (because I had to order in a rush elsewhere the items that were out of stock), that, in my case, it definitely was not cost effective.
On the good side, The Magic Depot, was quite nice and accepted with great efficiency to give me the money back.
– Keven Williams, Michigan
From the ordering process through delivery, everything went great. Ordering was easy. I was updated of every aspect. Delivery was timely and as promised. Plus he picked up shipping! Wonderful service and inventory. 2 Vernet's up.
– Lana Lombardi, South Dakota
I think it is so great to have such a supportive wife and two children to pass down the magic. Just make sure while you're running your proud family business, that you spend enough time and value and treasure them each, or they will disappear gradually like the great magic you master. Be careful with this magic, it can even fool you one day!
– Steve, Los Angeles
This place is great. Service above and beyond. I like the little extras like informative emails on what's new and hot! Thanks for the awesome customer satisfaction.
– Steve V, San Jose, California
The Magic Depot not only had what I wanted at the best price but with free shipping I ended up better than I thought I would. Magic Depot has a regular customer in me and I recommend them without reservation.
– Michael Gleason, Walsh CO
I think the Magic Depot is a great place to shop. They have a great selection and great customer service. I will be doing more shopping here in the future.
– A Hussain, London
I swear by this guys. It took less than two days for my order to reach me in London, from the U.S. This shop is fast, has extremely competitive prices, a wide selection, and regular e-mail order updates. I WILL be doing business with them again.
– Ryan Pilling, Calgary
I found the magic I was looking for right away, and at a great price! Aaron was incredibly quick and helpful responding to e-mail, even outside of regular business hours. The magic dealer that never sleeps!
– Richard Black, South Carolina
I Highly recommend The Magic Depot. They have a great selection of magic and really cheap prices. Their customer service is the best, before and after the sale. What I like the most, is that I can call Aaron toll free and talk to him personally about anything in the way of magic. Two thumbs up for Aaron Smith and The Magic Depot!
