Newegg philosophy: 3 day delivery does not include 2 days it take to get in mail!

The OP is fuckin retarded or cant do math.

If you order something on Tuesday and it goes out Wednesday, then you wont have it till Monday. Common sense- Thursday, Friday....MONDAY IS DAY 3. The day they ship and weekends do not count when using UPS/FedEx.....USPS will deliver Saturday but I dont think Newegg gives you that option.

Newegg usually ships my orders the same day even with their free shipping options but they have shipped the next day a few times.

Hell, Amazon doesnt ship my order for 2-3 days cause Im not sucking their dick with the "amazon prime" option. In terms of speed, without having to pay extra for it, Newegg wins hands down

FWIW, I just got something from Newegg, a day earlier than expected (Newegg said Friday (today), I got it Thursday).

First off dont come into my thread and call me fucking retarded. Second of all learn to READ. I said I ordered EARLY tuesday. Know what I am not going to even get into with you. Anywho I see that others are frustrated as I am at times with delivery services and I am not the only one.

I absolutely have never had this problem. If I order in the morning one day, and it ships from the NJ warehouse, I almost always have my package the next business day in the evening. If not the next day, then one day later.

Was just able to watch these. You basically proved my point. So where's the 24-48hr delay?
not sure if it had happened to you, but about few times a year i've seen my order stayed in system for two or three day (yes three day) and than get processed. now i don't mind on them as i know it might happen and i always plan ahed, but sometimes these delays end up longer making it worst when shipped (90% of the time) from UPS. now i never had trouble before as about 10% of the time it happens to me, but last two times it was worst as once i got item 3rd day (suppose to be 4th with 3 day shipping) but it was DOA and with return and stuff it ended up being 2 week additional. and second time (week ago) my order was in system for 2 day and it was shipped to nearby UPS (this is where most of customer are fustrated) and stayed there for Friday (was there Thursday afternoon) saturday, sunday and monday and i got it back on tuesday. time frame i checked (which i'm sure was due to late update) but 30 min drive from one warehouse to another which is about 2 min from my house and all day in delivery truck making it additional day as i couldn't use it till next day due to having it used at customer's store.

so it's more like 90/10 rule, 90% UPS sucks and 10% newegg/customer part ends up more waste of time.

Hey guys
I recently had something shipped from newegg via UPS and they ended up delivereing it to a different street...dam UPS
Anyways what I don't like is that now for 2nd day and over night you just have the "newegg" option aka what ever is cheaper fedex or ups which will likely be ups. So if you want to be sure it's fedex is your shiping company then you can only chose the 3day shipping.
But I just discovered a workaround! :)
I just ordered from my iphone and in the shipping method it listed all the fedex prices/options. That's great for me because I don't want UPS losing my package.
Just a tip in case you want fedex as your shipping method.

Ordered a 42" LCD off Newegg late Sunday night, 3-day shipping. It left the NJ warehouse Monday and I had it in my hands in Tucson on Wednesday, along with some other parts that were shipped ground out of their CA warehouse on Monday. I think their shipping is doing just fine. :D

i never pay for rush delivery. It takes about the same regardless of i do free 3 day shipping or 3 day fedex or whatever else option they have. Sometimes it comes in as little as 2 days which makes me a happy camper.

Get over it? If you want something right now go somewhere local, newegg just like any other online place will have problems sometimes. I've always gotten stuff fairly quickly from them even with the cheapest shipping options, most of the time faster than advertised.I always either get the cheapest shipping on all of my online orders because it's not a rush. If it is I get rush processing if available, and faster shipping.

If the shoe fits...

"paid for the UPS 3 day shipping and they say I will get my package Monday. Last I checked that's 6 days." Anyone with half a brain knows not to count the weekends in terms of shipping times.

I believe it states they have 24-48 hours to process your order somewhere on their site. I will say they usually get the order out the same day but they are not obligated to.

You had the option to pay for a faster service but you decided not to use it then come on here crying It WAS there in 3 days but you assumed it would ship the same day....dumb on your part.

If you are in NEED of something quickly, then pay for it ffs.

My 3 day shipping has been like this: ordered 7/12 early morning...newegg uses wrong address (never happened before)...delivery now 7/20...hopefully

BUT! If it would not have been lost it would have been here on 7/14; people make mistakes its cool.

I don't think newegg even offers a "3 day delivery" service. They offer 3 day shipping, sound like OP found out the difference the hard way.

I have prime, I've never payed for it. It's not hard to get a student account - hell, most community colleges will give you an email address after you register (takes five minutes at a lot of them). Free for a year, $39 if you renew after that (at least that was the offer to me).

On average Newegg shipping is lightning fast for me here in Indiana. The ONLY time it has even been slow is when they use UPS MI for small envelope stuff like SSD and RAM. This takes FOREVER. Not sure why, but I can wait. Though Newegg has tons of stuff I want, it has NOTHING I can't do without for a week. ;)

they will refund you if they dont have to "rush" it. IE it would have gone out same day anyways.

I never had problems with newegg in the past. In the last few months there have been a couple of issues. The first wasn't Newegg fault. UPS delivered my package to a neighbor and the neighbor brought it by a day or two after I reported it lost. Second is a small 0.5 pound package taking over a week to arrive. Normal delivery within California is about 3 days. This was my experience even with larger packages. This small item went through egg -> DHL -> USPS. Every stage of the process seemed to take longer than normal, 8 days if they meet their own schedule. That is least double normal time if you take out the weekend.

I thought the last one only happens with the Free Egg Saver shipping, or does it happen with all small items, now? :(

This item was eggsaver but cost $2.99 for shipping. I may have never used eggsaver before maybe this is the normal procedure.

9 years later....and NewEgg shipping is JUST AS SLOW today
If you don't pay them for Premiere....I think they hold your order a few extra days...so you will.
5 days since NewEgg says they "shipped" my order.....UPS says waiting for Pickup.....Delivery estimated for 6 days AFTER pickup. 11 days for delivery is not a winning strategy today

It is a Chinese business. Try to avoid buying from Chinese companies. From organ harvesting the Muslims in Northwest China, to authoritarian social credit scores, to stifling any concept of free speech, they cannot be supported without contributing to the enslavement of humanity.

UPS's tracking is all sorts of screwed up right now.. even packages i've had delivered 10+ days ago still say "waiting for pickup" when i look up the tracking number.

Amazon is the same way though unless you pay for prime. You select the free shipping option and it takes them a week to ship the item.

They may be using temporary workers that do not properly scan packages. In my area they have been using temps to run packages heavily around the holidays.

Here's a shipping problem for ya

Ordered a 3950X at MSRP from BestBuy

It's shipped USPS Priority (with tracking)

Mailman marks it as delivered, but doesn't actually deliver it. He put it in an empty mailbox residents cannot access and left it there 13 days.

And here's another shipping problem

Ordered stuff from Amazon Monday for Saturday 4 Jan 2020 guaranteed delivery (It's my Amazon "Prime Day")

Half the order is arriving tomorrow a day before my Prime Day, which means I have to take leave to be there to sign for it. (So much for Saturday being my Prime Day)

The other half of the order? It's arriving Sunday the day after my Prime Day.

If Microcenter came to Memphis I'd be very happy

Okay...so I dunno what your experience has been

BUT.....

One shipper I find is trying HARD to ship fast and deliver fast is BHPhoto !!!!!!
I'm starting to look there first because a lot of my orders are arriving in just 3 freaking days !!!

It looks like BHPhoto understands how Jeff Bezos became the worlds richest man......while NewEgg is in the dark ages.

Done. I'm not supporting them any more than I already have to. Thanks for the heads up. NO MORE NEWEGG.

I've never had any problems with da 'Egg per se, but a few weeks ago, they said my order was delivered to my office at 4:15pm via UPS (I left at 2:30 that day) and was given to the receptionist, who was at her desk that day and said she did not receive any packages at all (mine or anyone else's).....

When I saw that BS on the order status page at ~5pm, I immediately emailed them, demanding a new order via overnight express shipping and a 50% refund. Guess what majically showed up at 8:45am the next morning ???

So this was actually the result of the UPS Driver falsifying his/her delivery record, but I still threw it back at da 'egg to deal with, since they are the ones who have the contract with UPS.

They did not initiate the replacement shipment, but did give me the partial refund, so I let it go.....except to never use UPS for shipping anything, ever again....

OTOH, I've never had this issue with da 'Zon, BustyBuy, Wallyworld, Target, or other online vendor...
