TigerDirect Getting Worse

Post by sgkean » Fri Sep 12, 2014 3:48 pm

I've never had an issue with TigerDirect shipping or their rebates until now. On Sept 1, ordered a new MB and heatsink. Was about $15 cheaper than other places without having to mess with a rebate.

Checked with them three times over the past week about the shipping, and all I got was "I'm sure they've shipped out". Enough was enough, yesterday I cancelled both items and ordered from Newegg. Have to deal with rebates but oh well. Plus, I ordered a couple 4TB drives and a few others things.

The boxes from TD arrived today...they were overnighted to me yesterday! Plus I got charged after I cancelled them.

But guess what, Newegg boxes arrived today too! Didn't pay for overnight, but got the stuff overnight!

Now I have to screw with returning the stuff to TD. Guess they're on my no shopping list now. Sheesh!

Depending on what warehouse Newegg uses I get stuff the next day. From what I can tell the have three. 1 in Calli, 1 in Tenn, and 1 in NJ.

Bulk of stuff I order for my work comes from the Tenn warehouse, and I have it the next day (I'm in STL). NJ or Calli is 3 days minimum, Calli usually ends up being 4 or 5. Unless I pay for 2nd day.

I just ordered my aorus x7 from them. Newegg won't ship to hotels. But, it took 9 days for over night delivery....
