This is exactly what Newegg did to AMD cards during the initial mining craze. The $550 290x got all the way up to $950 at one point. Newegg will keep this up as long as the demand is outstripping the limited supply. Just set up a stock notification at Amazon, they stick to MSRP regardless of how fast they sell.

You guys never sold anything on ebay?

Ebay takes their own cut. Whenever an item is sold ebay takes 10% at most. That means those $800 gpus are $720 in revenue for Newegg.

To even put up an item on sale there are different fees that can kick in. so that $20 difference can be cut down to $5.



Newegg isn't ripping anyone off. They are maintaining a business relationship with eBay for some reason.

Because they are a business, they don't have to pay any fees. They have to pay a subscription which they will more than make up if they sold two GTX 1080s on there.

That must explain why I keep getting emails from the Prince of Newegg offering to transfer 10000 GTX 1080s to me if I help him watercool them.

By far some of the worst customer service and support in online retail. Even Amazon beats them in every category.

Why do people keep giving NE their money? doh.gif

They've always been fine for me, but I'm one person, will admit Amazon is loads better though. Not happy to see this but not surprised either.

There's nothing newsworthy about this lol, if you got the stock, sell it for what people will pay ;)

Tax free in a lot of places is probably one reason.
