First, you should pay the restocking because it isn't their fault the RAM isn't compatible with your system.

Second, the RMA process is automated when filed online. That is why it is approved instantly, and why the restocking fee is added automatically(even on parts selected as defective). Phone them up and create the RMA using the phone system. I just RMA's a pair of headphones that were past the 30 day limit. The rep waved the restocking fee and generated a UPS return label for no charge without me even having to ask. Yes, you have to wait on hold for like 5 minutes to talk to someone, but it usually isn't even that long, and the process is so much nicer.

:toast:

If only that where true 100% of the time, my buddy ordered an asus lcd when he opened it everything was fine and it worked but the buttons for the power and adjustments was not properly attached and would push inside the bezel the packaging was fine.

He promptly hit up newegg support chat or whatever, they flat out refused to pay return shipping to them and also charged him a restocking fee, which I WTF'ed at how do u restock a broken product.

All in all wound up costing him ~45$ more then the orig price to get a undamaged monitor

I've never had a support rep not refund the restocking fee when contacted via phone, and I've RMA'd several things in the past year that were defective, so I call BS on that. That isn't even reasonable if the product was defective.

Getting a free return label is hit or miss, but usually if you ask for it they will give it to you, but even still, everywhere else makes you pay return shipping too so oh well, that is the risk of buying online.

Mostly to remain competitive. 9/10 Newegg is still a better deal than alternatives, and their customer service if contacted respectfully still is among the best. I only really consider Amazon a respectable alternative.

WOW, i just spent some thing like $700 on egg and payed some thing like $12 postage lol. It just depends what our after..

I like Amazon to some point but find that every thing takes longer with them if the stuff is from a 3rd party.

Few others i use
FrozenCPU.com
Performance-PC.com
SVC.com
petrastechshop.com

There is other reasons i like newegg like one main one has to be if you ever need a receipt you just go to there site and login and get it even if it was 10 years ago..

EDIT: And if our lucky to have one close to you you may be able pick it up too. And if you use RMA service i do it though Chat and never had a single issue.

New egg or die man, I've had to RMA a ton of video cards to them and every time I had a problem called them up within 9 minutes had an RMA authorization label and UPS label ready in my email. Within the week or next week get my refund and happy sailing. Love New Egg.. prices? Ehhh... yea.... shipping? = suicide like wow... but what can you do? You get what you pay for I guess. I used tiger direct for my CPU was okay experience didn't complain much and had no problems lol.

110% agreed with newtekie

you don't have to call them on the phone. You can chat with them online. Got my return shipping paid for. But Amazon and Pricewatch.com are as good

Amazon when the price and free shipping work out the best. Also no tax depending on where you are.

But I would caution you, their shipping sucks. I've had heavy items placed with light ones with only a single airbag to protect them. Actually have pictures of my Fable 2 case which got mangled because of something like this. Game was ok but one corner was just totally broken.

So, watch what you order. If it is multiple items that are light and heavy. Order in separate shipments.

Hi-

I didn't read the first page here, but I have had decent luck with using Directron- before the Holidays last yr. I had ordered and Asus Z68 board, and an Antec 1100 case-While I don't remember the exact prices paid- I was probably $20 -$25 less than the Egg or Tiger.

Microcenter had some really sweet deals as well- their I5-2500K was $40 leass than the Egg, but it was/is in-store only. If ya got a Microcenter fairly close to you- great.

Well, I love Newegg. However, since I moved to TN I get hit with 9.5% tax because Newegg has a warehouse here. So, I buy my stuff from Tigerdirect, Mwave, ewiz, Directron and Amazon. Amazon is awesome, if you have a Prime account. I do still buy memory at the 'egg. They just have way more of a selection than anywhere else.

+1

Probably cause they had to make warehouse space for the vacuum cleaners and jewelry and other stupid non-tech shit they added since apparently deciding they wanted to be Amazon (though without the third-party vendor partnerships freeing up some of said space).

they don't stock those items, they have partnered with companies that do and those items ship from the third party warehouses.

kind of like buying from amazon's partner retailers. (which is the intent, the egg no longer seeks to be the best tech sales site, they want to compete with amazon in all categories)

I've used frozen cpu many times in the past, always great service and fast arrivals. The Irony for a little bit is that they weren't carrying any extreme cooling because both prometeia and acetek stopped making phase change coolers. They seem to have a new company making them now. Still no LN/dry ice blocks anymore

Tigerdirect is another place I find good deals at! At christmas time I found a 32in Visio LCD TV 720P for 220$ shipped :)

Any orders over 50$ is automatic free shipping! This goes very well with PC cases!

I don't know. Maybe they go by how much you buy. Your history with them. I just returned a monitor a week ago that was reconditioned and didn't work properly. They refunded in full and paid the return shipping. I got online with chat and they e-mailed me a shipping label in 5 min

I rank SuperBiiz and NCIX up along with Newegg in terms of reliability. However, they both have considerably less lenient return policies than Newegg, so do not buy on impulse.
