Same parent company, slightly different line(s) of business.

Have a look at DC as well.... they used to have a free shipping option for orders over $300, and their prices are usually under those listed at NCIX.

Don't forget to do your homework.... in many cases, using NCIX's price match (using all possible canadian sources) will make up the difference in shipping costs.

Make sure Dude. I've done many many orders and its always cheaper with NCIX and price matching. Even with the shipping I save $$$.

Now if you're only buying a few things than sometimes its cheaper at DC ($300+ free shipping) or Best Direct ($500+ free shipping).

I imagine then that it's pretty much a guaranteed pricematch on NCIX if the lower price is from an affiliated store?

I ordered my case from BestDirect and it was a smooth experience. Only problem is the case arrived damaged and I filled out an RMA request and have sent them emails since and they have yet to reply in over a month. Pretty bad customer service so I'd recommend NCIX or PriceCanada over them in that aspect but there prices are good.

Can't have your cake and eat it too. Low prices generally mean lower overhead and the first thing to go is always CS.

If you want to make sure your well taken care of after your purchase and are the type of customer that requires immediate attention if you have a problem, make sure you stick to something like NCIX that is setup as a full service company.

I've never had a problem price-matching at NCIX with my plethora of orders over the years.
