IIRC they have a deal with UPS, or Fedex likes to charge alot

Ye but a 100+ dollar difference for the same type of shipping is really fugged up

Pretty sure that's not an error. Just dumb.

I love their shipping options. They partner with Shoprunner, lol@shippingfee peasants.

This is because UPS is their normal package handler but they give you the option of FedEx if you HATE UPS. They get massive discounts from UPS and FedEx is probably just a small discount.

well considering UPS 3 day is almost NEVER under 20 dollars they clearly have a contract or such with ups. Frequent shipper possibly. 3 day shipping for something like a case is not uncommon to be at or close to 100 dollars.

<works for ups.

Why is newegg next day cheaper? Because ITS NEWEGG!! they want you to choose their shipping over the other, next day realistically costs them 50-60 dollars to overnight something. The rest is labor and profit.
