Newegg's Overnight Shipping Takes Several Days

Imagine it: you’re trying to patch things up with an estranged parent, and send a thoughtful gift for their birthday. You pay more than $50 for overnight shipping, and wait for the gift to arrive. Only 48 hours later, the item hasn’t even shipped yet, while an identical item headed for another recipient, sent using standard shipping, has already shipped. What? That’s what reader Janet writes happened to her when she ordered a coffee machine from Newegg for her mother’s birthday. [More]

Newegg's Gift Card Policy Frustrates Pedro

Things were looking up for Pedro. Not only have most people forgotten Napoleon Dynamite and thus stopped taking his name in vain in catch-phrase-employing jokes, but he had a Newegg gift card loaded with the exact amount of a pre-order-only item he wanted.

It's Hard To Do Your Christmas Shopping Online When The Items Arrive In Their Retail Boxes

Newegg wants everyone who lives near our reader Deaf Mute to know that he just bought a Sony Blu-ray player. It arrived from their warehouse last week in its bright blue retail packaging, with a shipping label slapped on it. “If I lived in a worse neighborhood and/or my father didn’t see it,” he writes, “Someone could have stolen it. Not only that, but the gift recipient may have had their gift spoiled.” [More]

CircuitCity.com Reborn As… Circuit City!

CircuitCity.com Reborn As… Circuit City!

CircuitCity.com is back, and it looks eerily familiar. The zombie website is now controlled by Systemax, the same folks who own Tiger Direct. Though the new site may look similar to the old, no doubt part of Systemax’s goal to keep alive a “proud brand that America has grown to count on,” it isn’t nearly as consumer-friendly as we would like…

Belkin Caught Paying For Positive Reviews

Belkin Business Development Representative Michael Bayard has been caught offering to pay anyone willing to leave perfect reviews of Belkin products on Amazon, Buy.com, and Newegg.

    How Newegg Stopped Collecting New York State Tax

    How Newegg Stopped Collecting New York State Tax

    Reader Chris Schiffner pinged Newegg to see why and how they stopped collecting New York State tax. They sent him an answer, posted after the jump, but here’s the short story: A new New York law would have required internet retailers using affiliate marketing to collect sales tax, so Newegg “restructured its affiliate marketing program.” The new structure somehow avoids having to collect New York sales tax. Shrug. Whatever, New York geeks, rejoice!
