are they reputable?
Been around for many years. I’ve bought a round of cards from them before. So, Yes, in my limited experience.

if the price raises due to the incoming tariff they won’t ship without contacting you first and getting your agreement on the changed price. You’ll have 48 hours to respond - if that happens. No response means your order gets cancelled.

They don’t give you a place that I’ve seen.

Not sure why you are getting that insecure notice. It’s secured on my iphone and PC.

They’ve been in business since 1995.

I placed an order for one card to see how it goes and will update with any progress or changes. Right away you just get the PO email confirmation.

Looks like this first 3060TI party may be over. I didn’t realize you could expand availability last night and see the details, so I don’t know what this looked like when I ordered and then posted it, but at this point they have 3000+ ordered for only 1500+ incoming.

it was about 3218 I believe when I first clicked last night. I googled about people getting 30 series cards, and most said they just push the eta by 2 weeks every 2 weeks, and people end up canceling when they get a card elsewhere. YMMV

I noticed the expanded info after I ordered as well. Since the card isn't charged until the order is fulfilled AND it gets cancelled if the price goes up-- I am going to let it ride.

shipping to Canada looks to be in the 50-60$ range. Just an FYI to the Canucks out there, however it appears that they actually do have some product in stock unlike most places here...

Did you read the posts above yours? If you consider -1700 “in stock” then... we have different ideas of what in stock means.

you can pre order but the stock coming in is accounted for.

I just got an e-mail from shopblt saying the availability on the eight 3060ti I ordered is supposed to be 2/1. The price has raised to $488 at this time, but they won’t change the bill until it can be fulfilled in case the price continues to fluctuate. That’s still cheaper than anywhere else with the new MSRPs, and its earlier than original 3 week ETA expected.

I got the same email for the 1 I ordered. I'm willing to see it play out but it has to be under 500 to my door or I'll just cancel keep waiting on other stuff.

shopblt update:
2/1 was my expected shipping date for my 8, 3060TI.
I just got an e-mail today, 2/2, saying my ship date is delayed to now anticipated 2/9.

I will vouch for ShopBLT, I have purchased and received a TR 3970X and a TR 3960X from them. Even had to return the 3960X and it was entirely painless. Solid business.

However, their ETA stock system is basically a fantasy. I have been on preorder for an Asus 3080 EKWB since late December. At the time I think there were 300 coming by Jan 5 and 200 preorders. Now it is 1,500 coming by mid March with 1,700 preorders. They basically raise their order quantity with the supplier and assume they will arrive in a few weeks.

As others have pointed out, there is no issue with getting in line. Free and easy to cancel. Just don’t expect anything. If there was an easy way to get hardware, then this whole situation would not be what it is.

My 3060TI were delayed once again.

“We have been informed that the ordered products have an updated estimated time of arrival (ETA) into our warehouse of 2/22/21. We sincerely appreciate your patience and will be shipping your order as soon as is possible.

Please remember that ETAs are provided by manufacturers and suppliers, and are not guaranteed arrival dates. We don't know how accurate they are, since we're merely passing along information provided to us. They are the only estimated delivery information that we have for items not currently in stock.”

Going to keep a watch of this thread -- thanks for the updates. Still trying to get a 3080 ftw3 for my friend this looks like it may not be that bad.
Hope it gets to you soon!

At this point, at shopblt, their preorder quantities far exceed their incoming quantities, often by a factor of 2. So you'd probably be waiting a long time for a card.

There isn't even anything incoming necessarily. "Incoming" is their false verbage for the quantity that has been requested from the manufacturer by the actual underlying distributor (Ingram Micro) for whom BLT is merely dropshipping from.

One thing to consider also is that it says on the site that they will on ship a limit of 50 to a customer. If someone ordered 100 then that will not show up that they will not get the full order and throw off the total amount ordered. No harm in getting in line. Who knows when you will ever be able to buy what you want anyway. The EVGA queue line is no different as Spartacus09 said.

I have 3 preorders with them, and each ne has at least one extension, even the 5600x I ordered which I might still get to pass it on, or pas on my 5800 to someone else at cost to help out someone here.
Thats if it ever comes and if I have money to buy it at that point.

I received another email that pushes the estimated date out like others have posted. Decided to cancel and wait it out for retail availability or just move on. I have some 2000 series cards so not really hurting for a new gpu.

All of them now show None for the Earliest ETA, looks like they stopped trying to guess at the arrival.

Me too. About once a month it pushes out the availability further out into the future.
Same here just had an additional month extension on the 20th

Yeah I have had a preorder for like 3+ months and now one item is discontinued according to the email.
There no way they haven't gotten new stock in the last 3-4 months

Busy this am and missed the shuffle cutoff by 5 minutes, but it didnt look good anyway
