i dont think its an age thing or being cheap, you cut your coat according to your cloth.
when i buy something i usually know what i want then i search for it as cheaply as i can ( i like a bargain), this includes waiting between 3 and 5 days for that extra saving.
its the previous savings that allows me the next purchase etc.
plus im Scottish

Undoubtedly, the Scots got it from the Irish since they descended mostly from the Irish.

i think you will find the Irish descended on us during the potato famine.

The Irish descended everywhere during the Great Famine (or Great Hunger as it was known amongst the Gaeltacht—Irish Gaelic speakers). Roughly one million died and another million emigrated, reducing Ireland's population by roughly 25%. Don't get me started on the reasons for the high mortality rate; my response would violate several forum rules.

Agree. Plus you get ridiculously low 1-day shipping prices should you need it faster. And yeah, I have to have mine like yesterday.

Considering that Amazon didn't used to delay shipments when using non-Prime free shipping, yes, it's extortion.

I have been primarily a Amazon user until recently I have been using Newegg. NE's free econo shipping is 2 day shipping for me, warehouse is near. NE tends to have better prices. NE's return is not as easy as Amazon, you need to have all original packaging for a NE return. I'll be buying more from NE and less from Amazon.

I use Amazon quite a lot, in fact I've ordered from them today, but of course I'm not talking electronics. I've not bothered with Prime which is 49 a year at the moment because I go for free shipping on all my items and it doesn't matter how much they cost, in fact one thing I ordered this morning was only 5 but I still got free shipping on it.

I use NewEgg all the time and have never had a problem with any of the products I purchased, knock on wood. However, I always compare prices with both Amazon and TigerDirect and choose whichever has the best price, including shipping costs. Generally speaking, I usually find the best deals at NewEgg and would say that they get the majority of my business.

Newegg Vs. Amazon for buying PC parts
