    What the hell...

    I was looking at putting together a new PC for myself (Shuttle PC).

    I added the items to my wish-list and decided to take lunch while I thought about the purchase.

    I just get back and add the items to my cart and the price on the Shuttle is now $5 more... It was only an hour since I last looked at it on the site...

    I'm not complaining about the $5, but it was just definitely weird.

    yeah, it happens.
    note also their shipping charges.
    those free 3 business day shipping/not free also changes often

    I've noticed them bumping the price up on the Intel E2100 series almost weekly.
    I'm guessing that they must be really hot sellers, so newegg is taking a supply and demand approach.

    I just placed my order... Of course I'm in one of the 3 states that they charge sales tax on, but I do usually get my stuff pretty fast.

    newegg is good.. prices are okay.. but i try to avoid tax when i can.

    i usually buy from clubit, zipzoom, mwave, and a few others.... i always use fatcash as well.

    Yep, except one item shipped from CA and the others from TN... I got the 3-day shipping so I'll have the stuff Thursday.
