More like I've been lucky and they've been forced to improve because they are about to have to charge sales tax everywhere. I'm getting my tax free buys in while I can. I'll buy from whoever has the best price if I think I won't end up stuck with something I don't want. Newegg has never stuck me with anything I don't want. If they did I'd be mad. But if you aren't even willing to elaborate on what Newegg did (and I have no doubt someone did something legitimately shitty to you) I'm certainly not willing to be mad on your behalf.Got it. NewEgg is better because they don't charge sales tax.
Now the OP sit-rep. That pissed me off. If you have a story about NE being douches, bring it, that's what this thread is for. I just haven't got one really. I haven't got one about Amazon, either, mind you. They are more "happy customer" oriented but buying lots of stuff from both you find they both have their moments occasionally. I also buy crap from aaawave, ncix, xoxide, and wherever else I can find a good deal. There's no denying Newegg was doing a lot of RMA fraud there for a while. But no orders ever lost, not in stock, backorder, broken or DOA items, AND I've RMAd a buncha stuff for minor reasons and they have all gone fine for me recently and for a sustained period now.
