Newegg’s customer service has treated me right every time I’ve had a problem. But I guess it’s slightly easier to whine on a forum about how “scummy” they are than it is to actually try to resolve your complaint.
I mean, they way they've handled the GPU shortage is pretty scummy. They almost never restock individual GPU SKUs and force you to buy them with cheap motherboards and powersupplies and off-brand Chinese RAM. No thanks.

3080s are showing sold out for me. I got to the checkout process with one then it kept changing shipping and pickup options until going OOS.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!! Seriously fuck best buy with a rusty razor blade.

Got it in my cart, tells me it's available via the map. Then when I click the "payment" it tells me it's now not available within 250 miles. "Try shipping instead" "yeah we can't ship to you" Yup that's it... I'm fucking out of this GPU search

That is what I kept running into as well. I even changed zip codes all over the country where I have family/friends etc and got zip. Its why I said fuck Nvidia.

This time I think my jammed as the 'Please wait....' I refuse to refresh. Want to play this out.

It never turned back to Add-To-Cart. The whole BB system is such a roll of the dice.

Seriously, fuck this clown shoe garbage.

Shipping options for the following items changed. Please review your selections below.

fine click go go go

Some of your pickup dates for items in your order may have changed.

I care fuckall about the pickup date, just give me the fucking card reserved and I'll pick it up whenever the fuck it comes in

"choose store" nope

Choose alternate location, hey it's there... not on that date which just disappeared, or that date....

"Sorry this item is sold out, and removed from your cart"


I have a sneaking suspicion bots have adapted to BB's "anti-bot" precautions.

Well, well, well. Looks like I lucked out with BB this time around. If you can call spending $1650 lucking out.

Yep, another disappointing BB drop for me. Chalk it up to bad luck, awful BB web coding, or bots? At this point, does it really matter? Never had a chance.

I got all the way to pickup location on the FE 3090 before it stopped. Can't say I'm particularly upset about that though.

What I found upseting(among everything)... is even though it has my location, it still is allowing me to jump into that queue thing, even though as soon as it pops up to add to cart, it tells me OOS

Even had a nice chat with a customer service agent, hoping that she could work some magic... yeah that didn't work. Got the standard "copy paste" of this item is in huge demand, and not available everywhere... yeah.

Wonder what zip codes in flyover country are actually stocked they may as well put up signs that CA folks need not apply...same shit now with 5900x add to cart and then nothing in 250 miles. FU.

sucks, I was late to the party. Had issues with app showing items OOS but then you click on them and they show add to cart.

Same ole shit. Add it to your cart and can’t complete order because no store within 250 miles.
  1. "Pickup available in 4 days at store located 6 miles from your location."
  2. Adds to cart.
  3. "Your selected store is no longer available, please select another store for pickup."
  4. Finds one 20 miles away.
  5. "There was an error processing your request, please try again."
  6. "No pickup location within 250 miles."
  7. "Sold out."
Every time.

I didn't get a card today but I disagree. Their site hasn't gone down like every other retailer, and you have a chance to actually get something when you click the link even a few minutes late. Other retailers are OOS in seconds.
Wouldn't be saying that if in CA...

Pretty much my experience every drop for nearly past two months until today. Today I didn't get past step 2.

I was excited, had a 3080 in cart but kept saying none available within 250 miles and no shipping allowed on any of them.
Kept changing stores and doing the same.
Spent the last 30 minutes for nothing.
Lame.

Edit: Sacramento, CA region.

The TUF was in my area. STRIX still says "Coming Soon." The Gigabyte Gaming was available, but just like the STRIX the others still say "Coming Soon."

STRIX was available in my area - MN. It was the first card that notified me of the drop starting.

what are you using for notifications? For some reason none of my discords alerted on my phone, maybe discord needed to be open, idk.

This is a joke, do a simple 1-2 min cart reservation and ship it. If you cannot checkout in a minute, out it goes..at this point most of us are trained to checkout in seconds...gone are the days of lazily comparing cards on NE for you know actual features like number of I/O ports or cooler setup..

Paid HotStock (iOS) account - it's like $5/mo. Trying it out. So far it has been OK.

It has also been misfiring on BB for the past 60 min when everything is long OOS...

Wow, that was wild. For 2 minutes, sometimes the add to cart button showed up. Every time I clicked on add to cart, it didn't let me:

What that "one more step" is before I could add the card to my cart, who knows. I was unsuccessful. 2 minutes later, keeps being sold out, or it tells me they ran out. Unreal.

This drop was weird for me. Wanted 3060 ti FE but when I got it added to my cart was faced with the dreaded "Not Available in your Area", but I was able to check out with a 3070 FE on a second window. Yay.

Cut to 30 min later and check my app to confirm that the 3070 order is still good, and see that I have left the 3060 ti in my cart but of course says "Sold Out". Then at 12:05 accidentially open the BB App again and see a yellow bar in my cart for the 3060. Click it and was able to confirm the order. Crazy.

they do come back in stock for a little bit at a time, probably related to cancelations. I'm not stock tracking, but I see it happen first hand when I search for items.
