    About how long does the shipping usually take. I am in Illinois and the status was changed to shipped within the last hour. Is Saturday possible?

    I usually get stuff next day since they have a warehouse in NJ, but they also have other warehouses so it depends.

    newegg is about as fast as it comes. only thing faster for me is through monoprice for my electronics cables b/c the factory is close to my area.

    The shipping is via FedEX so you'll get a tracking number that you can follow it's progress.

    You bought a case online? I guess you couldn't find that same case locally and you wanted that case really bad.
    I learned the hard way to buy your case locally unless you can't find it and really really really really want that case; sales tax is much cheaper than the shipping (in most cases) and you usually get your hands on to get it a first hand look and feel for it before you buy.

    But yes Newegg does it get out fast, then it's up to FedEX which is usually quick but things do come up. So when you get the tracking number, remember it's out of Newegg's hands then, so if it's slow getting there don't give that a con of the product when writing your review back at Newegg.

    ^^ The carrier is picked when you place the order. I use UPS 3 day guaranteed it's usually free. Fedex usually costs more.

    I ordered a DVI cable from Newegg, and some engine hoses for my car from another site. The cable was ordered two days later and showed up yesterday, but the hoses aren't even in-stock yet.

    I just ordered parts for a whole new computer so the shipping was $30 including the case. The case for some reason is just coming from somewhere else.

    Status: Shipped - Your order has shipped. You may view your tracking information by clicking the applicable Order Number above. However, your tracking number may not appear immediately as the shipping couriers update only periodically. Your tracking number(s) will also be sent via e-mail to your Newegg.com login.


    I haven't gottan an email and it hasn't appeared above where it says that. It's been like 7 hours. It's not that I'm getting worried, I was just wondering if I'd have it by the end of this week.

    You mean UPS don't you?

    That's the default shipper for everything on Newegg.

    fedex used to be the default a while back. And you can still ship it via fedex...but I don't know why you would because that costs more and usually is not any faster.

    FedEx delivers on Saturday. UPS is too Jewish to plow on the Sabbath.

    i seem to remember getting my stuff faster when they used fedex. keep in mind that I never "upgraded my shipping" (waste of money imo). I haven't purchased from newegg in probably 8 months now!

    damn I need to get something new...time to check their site.

    There's also the fact that FexEx ships internally on weekends, and UPS just lets shit sit in the warehouse instead of getting it where it needs to go for Monday deliveries.

    I keep telling myself I should build a new computer, but I keep putting it off because ultimately, all I ever use my home desktop for anymore is websurfing, casual gaming, and the occasional pr0n.
