directcanada.com anyone?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i found quite a few threads and mentions about them a few years back back found little information about their reliability in recent years. Has anyone purchased from them before in the past year and how would you rate the experience? The products listed on their site is cheaper than most Canadian retailers around and i'm just wondering if their is some kind of catch.

p.s i wasn't sure where to put this so sorry if this is in the wrong section.

Yes they are fine. I buy from them. They are owned by NCIX and it is just online whereas NCIX is online and store; reason for the price difference.

I've done at least 4 purchases from them in the last year and they were excellent. Fast shipping, everything arrived in perfect shape and all. I believe they're a sister site of NCIX.

I buy from them as well, one thing to keep in mind is that I am pretty sure NCIX and Direct Canada share warehouses, sometimes your order may get bumped in favor of an NCIX order if there is low stock. This is my own speculation

If price is the main concern and you'd prefer to order from NCIX, you could always just order from NCIX and price match from directcanada.

I buy from DirectCanada all the time because of their great prices and free shipping. It's the website for NCIX's warehouse.

I purchase from both DirectCanada & NCIX.

DirectCaanda does not offer pricematching and does not have brick & mortor stores. However, NCIX does offer pricematching and does have brick and mortor stores. NCIX will gladly pricematch the same products from DirectCanada; shipping costs are irrelevant.

Note: Any items purchased at DirectCanada with an invoice subtotal over $50 qualify for free shipping anyways.

Actually got my rampage 3 and both of my 6970's from them. There standard shipping is stupid fast, and all products i have had no troubles with. I did have 1 dispute with my credit card not working when I tried to purchase a rampage 4 extreme, they got back to me the next morning and gave me free priority shipping.

Overall amazing customer service
