I used to read and look at every Newegg deal flyer/sale they sent to my email.
After carefully looking at the last several in the past few months they aren't even close to being deals and its turned into marketing spam for the most part.

Closeout this, year end deal this, same average prices.

Agreed. I wanted to buy a 32 or 64GB flash drive for Christmas, but prices haven't gone down since September.

They seem to have a trend of incremental price increases, up to their next "blow out" sale, which simply lowers products back to their original price.

Newegg = Over priced. I can't understand why people buy from them. TigerDirect is much better for tech stuff IMHO. But I love Amazon. Order from them all the time. I never have to leave my house to shop with Amazon Prime, I order and its at my door the next day with no sales tax and free shipping. I would however, prefer to shop at my local brick-and-mortar shops but since WalMart moved in and forced them all out of business I don't have the option anymore. (And no, I will NEVER buy anything from WalMart)...

Tigerdirect/CompUSA are okay, but one major thing they have going against them is their website. It's just a mess - one of the worst I've ever seen. I feel like I'm getting spammed everytime I visit the site.

Ordered a Galaxy Note from Amazon on the 20th, arrived from GERMANY on the 23rd.
That's why I love Amazon!

Always bought my parts from Newegg. It's where I usually go first if I'm looking at that kind of stuff.

Does anyone know pricegrabber?
It is very usefull to compare, sometimes ZipZOomFly or TigerDirect becomes cheaper than newegg.

To guest above, I'm guessing you haven't been to ZZF recently. Their website has been down for a few months and before that they had very little merchandise to sell. Maybe one day they will be back but for now it doesn't look good.

Newegg has the best customer service of all companies ive purchased from. But seriously, bestbuy is having better deals than them this year, and thats saying something.

Agreed. I liked the old newegg site, and it was much quicker to find things.
