    Just wondering if anyone would share their experiences with this online store.

    I've been a Newegg customer for a while now but I've recently found better buys at Egoodz than Newegg...

    Just to follow-up I've noticed that the seals has listed on the bottom of their site are not linked. I've searched TRUSTe, CNET, and Yahoo Shopping and cannot find egoodz listed anywhere!

    I've contacted CNET and filed a watchdog report with TRUSTe and hopefully I can get some answers soon.

    In the meantime, I'm still searching for anyone who's dealt with before... anyone out there???

    Maybe this will help:
    Do not do business with...

    If you must try their ebay store

    And I always worry if an online retailer is not on because it seems like they should have at least some mention...yanno?
    Not to mention, any online retailer who does not give a physical address is no place for me to shop.
    Other red flags:
    no telephone number that I could find after searching for 45 seconds.
    The need to post every single "certification" they have...and according to you, they don't appear to check out right away. If they were THAT established they would have something on reseller ratings don't you think?
    Prices are lower than standard unless this is off brand stuff.
    15% restocking fee...not a red flag, just ******.
    They said
    and fail to give a phone #.

    I wouldn't buy from them and if someone comes back and vouches for them, they are a newbie then they're probably full of crap. No offense but that is the trend.

    And -- just to raise the red flag higher -- always do a WHOIS lookup on the domain name to see who registered it and when. Does the following information give you a good feeling?

    That's right -- totally obscured and/or phony WHOIS registration info, which a violation right there.

    I agree with the WHOIS comments. That's a pretty easy way to get some more information about a website you're not totally sure about. It's not definitive, but it can definitely give you an idea of whether you want to do business with them or not. In this case, I think you're better off sticking with NewEgg.

    Thanks for all the help everyone, it seems this store just has too many red flags to deal with and I'm glad I took a minute to really check them out before I bought anything!
