Default Anyone order from newegg.ca?

Just wondering if anyone has ordered from newegg.ca? Do they actually ship from Canada?

They do not ship from Canada. Newegg.ca is just an internet storefront for Newegg.com.

The only duty/brokerage you have to pay is ~$1.25. There are no other fees and if you receive your package and UPS asks for fees, contact Newegg about it.

PST and GST are both charged no matter where you are.

Oh sorry. My bad. I miss-read your message. I thought you asked if they ship to Canada. I don't know if they ship from Canada. But i doubt.

I've ordered from them once. They ship from the U.S. & their shipping is higher than most but look for the specials, in particular the free shipping items. My experience was a good one.

I've been ordering from them lots. The nice thing about them being US based is that they fluctuate with the value of the dollar on a daily basis, so if the dollar suddenly rises, BAM, way lower prices than NCIX. Add to that free shipping deals, which are becoming more and more common, and coupon codes, and we have a wiener.

My last few builds have been through Newegg.ca and it takes them less time to ship from California, 2000 km away and in a different country, than it takes NCIX, 50 km away.

I found Newegg.ca's prices to be a bit high when they launched, but now they are right in line, or better, on a lot of items.
Plus their in-stock situation, on new items, seems to be better than many Canadian-based websites.

They get more and more of my business nowadays, as most have stated their prices have come down, so has shipping.

I have had problems too though and IMO CS wasn't fast or great until I got a hold of a admin, now if I have a problem I PM him and BAM problem solved and always above and beyond what the problem was in the first place, i.e.: a special promo code or refunding say my shipping fees doing crosshippment RMA's. In other words they will eat a bit of the profits in order to gain a customer. Some Canadian retailers could take a lesson here.

Unfortunately for NCIX between newegg.ca , PerPC and Gary at Sidewinders I haven't made a order form ncix in......wait let me check my acct.....Mid October.
