Maybe bait and switch was a poor choice of words . @ comicguy no need be rude however rudeness and ignorance frequently accompany one and other maybe in your case as well?
Glad to see some here can read Wikipedia :-) So... any lawyers in the house or no?
Newegg frequently sends out emails yes I get them frequently items are very soon out of stock other retailers do this limited to stock on hand and when it runs out it runs out it's a common retail practice or when the sale has a specific time ending I failed to note before I commented my bad.
At Newegg it seems to be more frequent and they seem to run of sale items out sooner at Newegg than Amazon or Best buy same with Fry's just the way it is.
I was in corporate retail management for many years for some fortune 100 companies much larger than new Egg so I am familiar with these things.
I bought 2 new TV's this year , 2 new computers a 3 in one ,2 new Monitors and peripherals last year , more recently a video card and a sound card a remote wireless mini keyboard For WMC and a wifi blue ray player a new router and some other stuff oh and cables.
. I found substantially better deals on the TV's at Best Buy in the store than Newegg had on the same model name brand TV sets
New egg did have decent deals on name brand monitors but Amazon had the same price and free two day shipping for prime members. New Egg had decent deals on some computers .
. The PC's I wanted were on line at Newegg at a decent price I would have bought them right then but they were out of stock so I went to HP direct and got the same pre configured units for the same price.
Newegg has a lot of stuff but often the deals are usually just as good at Amazon on most things and they usually have the items in stock.
Amazon offers free shipping over $25.00 and free 2 day shipping for Prime members . I have a prime membership so it works for me .
I've tried to shop Newegg but so far they have been been beat out by Amazon and BB every time at least on the things I bought all the BB purchases in store so I can't say how fast they ship. No hassle returns or return shipping at Amazon either just saying. New egg reminds me of a Giant Fry's nothing wrong with that they do have a lot of stuff and some good deals depending on what and when you buy just like any other store .
The Soviet people feared the KGB was watching them through their TV's ........or listening to them through their radios, so they kept them turned off often when they wanted privacy .
Now the NSA/ DHS are in fact watching us with our computers cell phones surveillance cameras drones,satellites etc !
