However.. he found another collection whole dvd copy of Crypt on Amazon. He bought it and spent a lot of money on it.

Once it arrived, it turned out the menus were wrong and some episodes were missing and he was shocked it was a bootleg dvd. Someone did a hell of a job doing that and he had to contact Amazon to get his money back and he was ripped off, he did get it back and yet he went off and sold the bootleg elsewhere Profit lol.

However you just need to be careful when shopping used things or "new" things if they are cheap. Amazon is still a good place to shop but i NEVER shop PC stuff there, i always stay with NewEgg or Tiger Direct. Well NewEgg mostly never failed me, Tiger never really have good shipping rates.

How is this being ripped off? They made a mistake and fixed everything, plus they didn't ask for the product back (since it was bootleg)....

I love NewEgg too, but I would have to give the edge to amazon for shipping.

I signed up for an Amazon Prime account for a year. You get it for free for having a .edu email. That means I get free 2-day shipping on anything sold directly by Amazon. Its amazing. Even if newegg is cheaper by a decent amount before shipping, amazon always ends up being cheaper after shipping AND faster delivery w/prime.

I've never had to return anything to Amazon, so maybe NewEgg has the edge there. I've really had nothing but great experience with both of these companies.

As soon as you order doens't mean they'll to be ship out the next day..

you have to becareful and read everything carefully before hitting the final button..

You gonna watch out for the "Shipping estimate"part

Order date is Apirl 5 (For example) and the Shipping Estimate is Apirl 31 - May 5 (for example) that mean that the shipper will ship between the those date. Some seller won't ship out until the end of the estimate shipping date.

If you're in a rush to buy your stuff, i suggest you avoid those seller with long shipping estimate date

Amazon>Newegg, imo

no tax, fast shipping ( both of them ), but for high priced stuff, amazon takes the cake by far

Also, OP is getting mad for no reason. Estimate was for May 5 at the earliest right? I've already given you an answer, not sure why this thread has to keep going

edit: woops, i take that back. keep goign through reps with them

Back in April, it was originally sold direct by Amazon. Sometime since it started selling through a retailer.

Amazon and Newegg are where I buy 95% of all my electronics. I compare between the two and go with whatever has the best overall deal including shipping. I've had nothing but good experiences with both of them.

I've had nothing but really good experiences with amazon. If you are buying from a 3rd party that is on amazon, then you may have a bit of trouble.

I usually get next day shipping if I order from Amazon, even with super-saver.

Sure you didn't order from someone listing the item on Amazon?
