Angry what is with neweggs shipping?

every products shipping is added to the total shipping cost. i got 4 items and 20 dollor shipping. i cant handle spending 20 bucks shipping on a 60 dollor order.

it is just cables and a video card.and a fan with free shipping. so 20 buck shipping for 2 cables and a video card. i hate it. are there codes

It used to seem like they combined shipping a bit, if you had a large cart the shipping was still fairly small, now they add all the different shipping charges togethor... Gas Prices I guess...

If you want great cables Monoprice is the best place for them. I got my HDMI cables from them and a 6' cable cost roughly $15 and the construction was great. As for Newegg gas is getting expensive so FedEx and UPS are starting to bump up the cost of shipping, which is perfectly understandable.

The prices on cables and fans for shipping is kinda ridiculous on Newegg. Just bought something and I waited until the optical drive had free shipping before I bought so I wouldn't spend a fortune on shipping. I bought 3 things, a 120mm fan, lightscribe DVDs, and a lightscribe DVD burner. I almost thought I would have to buy a cable with an OEM drive, I did comparisons and the retail drive would have been cheaper than buying OEM and a SATA cable, but I ended up finding a SATA cable lying around, so I went back to the OEM drive.

Buying in bulk helps if you need lots of cables or fans. There's an 80mm fan I bought and it had a bulk buy deal, 10+ fans and the shipping is free and reduced price, so a little over $12 for 10 80mm fans isn't bad. Same deal on select cables. Newegg isn't a great place to buy single cables or fans usually. But then you might end up paying the same amount of money at Best Buy or other places, plus gas money, but you get the cable right away that way... So it may never work out right...lol.

Yep, like I said, if you need audio or visual cables Monoprice.com is the best place to get them. The shipping isn't expensive, the prices are very good and the quality of their own cables are very good. Not Monster Cable quality, but almost there.

That was already suggested two posts up.

Check Amazon.com. If your order is over $30.00, you'll receive free shipping.

I WENT TO RADIO SHACK AND THEY HAD THE CABLE I NEEDED upps sorry about caps i didnt want to retype that.

got the product for way less if you combined shipping prices at newegg so i am happy. and i got it all right away. ill try mono next time. i have been shoping with the free shipping tag which saves the most money for me. i am not a bulk buying but 10 fans for 12 bucks. nice

that is really cheap that they are doing that. I might be building a few new comps soon, and I'll need to buy a butt load of parts, and if shipping is gonna be 50% of the cost, wel, I might as well shop elsewhere.

Most computer parts you can find with free 3 day shipping. I bought my computer back in October and for the complete system, except monitors, it was like $30 to ship, not bad for a mobo, hdd, case, GPU, CPU, PSU, fan, heatsink, and RAM. Just watch the shipping prices, because they will sometimes change back to regular price and then you go to buy it... I almost did that, but noticed the price on shipping was up from free to $6 or so, then 2 days later it went back down to free and I bought it while I had the chance. Don't buy a bunch of little crap like cables and stuff there and you should be ok on shipping prices. If you need cables, do what was suggested on this thread and get them from those paces.

yea, but I'll be buying like 6 monitors, 3 psu, ect, so I know shipping will be a lot, but I'm not going to choose parts based on price, especially if Tiger direct is doing the normal way of shipping, not this new newegg way.

It depends where you live as well. For me, TigerDirect would charge tax b/c I'm in TX, and that would kill me in the price. I wouldn't see any savings for the DVD burner I just bought on Newegg over buying on TigerDirect. Price is the same, but I got mine w/ free shipping and no tax on Newegg, where I would pay another $11-$12 for shipping and tax for TD.
