I got lucky and found an MSI 5850 for 289.99 Shipped at ANTonline.com 12 days ago, Thought to myself, not the best deal but prices are going up, and I was right.
I come home today expecting delivery, but instead I get this in my inbox.

Hi, my name is Amanda and I'm a manager with the Customer Service team at ANTOnline.

We have been notified that your product order was damaged in transfer from the regional warehouse to the shipping hub.


We apologize for the inconvenience and are refunding immediately and filing an insurance claim for our lost goods.


Again we have refunded you purchase in full, so you can re-order as you see fit; we apologize for any inconvenience.

GWAAAH!!!!! It should have been here by now, TWELVE DAYS LATER, and all I get is an email!? I wrote back stating that a refund was not sufficient, that this is a limited supply item thats price has already increased, and that a replacement with rush delivery is the only way to take care of you customers! Am I justified or expecting to much??

It sounds to me like they didn't want to sell you the card at that price, so they made up the story to justify the non-delivery. My bet is that they will not do as you asked.

That sucks, and it sounds like a cover for a mistake they made in price or stock. Fuck them. Move on and keep looking.

lol, you didnt get screwed, You got ur money back.

Whats screwed is the amount ANT charges for shipping 24/7..

Newegg has made it almost impossible for other companies, they all suck compared to them.
