LOL at new egg shipping options

#1Fade2black001Posted 5/31/2012 3:41:33 PM
UPS guaranteed 3 day shipping 17 bucks

FedEx guaranteed 3 day shipping 117 bucks WTF?!?

NewEgg next day shipping is even cheaper at 106 bucks.

I think he was mostly referring to the next day shipping being cheaper than three day shipping.

I lol at them as well but that's because I live near their distribution center and I get everything within 3 days, usually within 2, even with the standard shipping =P

I was doing that as well. I was simply pointing out the Next day shipping option was cheaper than the FedEx 3 day shipping.

I didn't see the extra 1. I'm sure it's an error. There's all kinds of them posted on Newegg.

hmmmmm..... That worries me... How can a well known respected company such as them make so many errors?

It happens. I'm sure if it's something that causes issues with Newegg's customers, they'll quickly fix it. But over the many years I've ordered from them, they've been nothing but the best!
