My coworker found this out.

It's so cheap but I'm on an uber budget. 2 GB is fine for now.

For 110 bucks after google checkout 10$ off it's a crying shame NOT to get it man! couple that with the 1% from fatwallet, which is only 1.10.. but that's just extra money in the pocket to me.

Crucial memory to boot. :) Can't beat that.

Ya, I canceled my Newegg order and picked up 2.

4GB for $100 is CRAZY!!!


(This should really be moved to the "Buying Tips, Advice and Discussion" section though)
Thanks. I got over zealous and wanted to tell my iMac friends!!! FWIW My newegg order is on the way still. I guess I'll just sell it or return it. Not sure.. I'd rather have the Crucial memory than the PQI. Not that it should matter.

I could use that money for something more important then RAM. :p

Thanks though.

I'll be getting a bigger hard drive for Christmas instead.

Call Newegg, tell them you want to refuse delivery. They will instruct you what to do.

(Basically they will tell you to tell the UPS man that you don't want to take delivery of the package, it will be sent back and you will get a 100% credit. You won't even be charged shipping. If it does end up getting delivered, DON'T open it. You can still refuse delivery. Just call UPS, tell them you want to refuse delivery of the package. Ups will come and make sure you didn't open it. Then they will send it back.)

:D

Oh snap. I figured I'd still get charged shipping? PM me for any tips I may need to negotiate.

No tips man. Newegg has the best customer service of any company I have EVER dealt with.

Like I said, just call them up and tell them you don't want the memory anymore. No questions asked.

Chatting with a rep via newegg.com. I'm hard of hearing so sometimes it's futile to do it over vox.

Newegg rep is saying shipping will not be refunded.

Tell them you want to refuse delivery.

I used to have a small computer business and have done it a couple dozen times.

That's what I told him.

Chat Information
Please wait while we connect you to a Newegg representative.
Chat Information
Thank you for contacting Newegg. My name is Thomas. How may I assist you today?
Me: Thomas. I'd like to return this via non acceptance of delivery is there anything I need to do with you?
Thomas: No sir, that's all you need to do. Once we get the item back we will refund you, it can take 3-5 business days for the refund once we get the item back.
Me: Ok, What can I expect for a refund? Will I get charged restocking fees or will I receive 100% refund?
Thomas: You will get a full refund for the item price, except for shipping charge.
Me: Ok.thank you!

The way you phrased that, the rep probably thinks you already got the item and want to return it.

Make it clear, that you have not yet received the item and you have no intention of opening it.

Make sure you use the term "refuse delivery".

I know what you mean. I am justing going to give my sister my (2) 1GB sticks for her white iMac. She is lucky to have a computer nerd for a big brother.



You better believe it!
Very lucky indeed. I handed down an iMac to my brother and gave another a 1 GB SODIMM.

Haha, Glad you got this sorted out. Those reps are just used to the phrase "refuse delivery". They are very nice people though.
Yes now I need to figure out how to refuse it since my Leasing office will sign for it.
