I've usually found items for about the same price somewhere else.
I had a similar experience with them about 4 years ago or so.
They were running a special where if you sign up for direct tv as a new customer through the tiger direct web site, tiger direct would give you a rebate of $250.00 off the purchase of any TV on their site that is at least 40" big.
So I clicked on the link at Tiger Direct to sign up for Direct TV. That took me to Direct TV's site. Signed up for DT. Put in that I was signing up for the Tiger Direct deal. I then ordered a TV that met their requirements. Thing is though, the TV I bought was listed for $600.00. Which was unheard of back then for a 40" TV. So that TV wound up only costing me about $350. THere must have been about 100 different sets that were at least 40" big. The next cheapest 40" TV Tiger Direct had was for like $800 or so.
So anyways, when I sent in all the paperwork needed to get my $250 back, Tiger Direct wouldn't honor it because they alleged I hadn't signed up for Direct TV via Tiger Direct TV's site, which was complete BS. I think what really happened is they were taking such a big loss on the TV I bought so they denied me. I contacted the BBB about it and just constantly harassed Tiger Direct and the BBB over it. It took me a few weeks of doing this, but Tiger Direct finally came through for me and sent me my $250.00.
Other than that, I've never had any issues with Tiger Direct over the years, and would definitely buy from them again.
