Hey, I'm probably going to order my 8800GTX tonight, but I cant right at the moment. I'm on the east coast, and I was wondering how late can I order from newegg if I want my order to go through tonight? Planning on getting Fedex overnight shipping so that the card will get here on tuesday. I didnt know what timezone they're in, or if it matters.

Itís going to take them a day to process the order so from there the speed of arrival depends on the shipping method you fancy.

They say you can order whenever and get it processed. But I honestly think it's 4pm PST as that's when most people go home; might be 5 though.

:( lol, kinda ironic that overnighting something means that it will get here 5 days from now at best. Bad timing on my part i guess.

I will tell you one thing, NEVER, EVER buy something from Newegg on Thursday night; as they process it Friday, and ship it out the same day. So you'll get it Monday. But since Monday is a holiday; you'll get it Tuesday.

Yup. It looks like I'll be getting what I ordered, until Tuesday. :(

What sucks is, they're based out of California; and a good majority of their items come from California; and even UPS ground shipping is like overnight. However some items get shipped from New Jersey; so I takes quite a while longer especially for ground. It's almost better to pay for overnight delivery.

Well it turns out that I got UPS NextDayAir on my order. That means that it will ship out tommorow and I will get it on Saturday. UPS does deliver NextDayAir on Saturdays. :)

UPS does deliver NextDayAir on Saturdays.

Saturday delivery is an extra charge. Did you request it? If not, Next Day Air arrives the next business day (Monday).

Well I selected 'UPS Next Day Saver', and nowhere did it show a selection for an extra charge for Saturday Delivery. So I think if it goes out tommorow, then it will be in the hands of UPS. Look, http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/shipping/time/service/value_added/sat_delivery.html

Look at this page (http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/shipping/time/service/value_added/index.html).

I'm pretty sure you won't get it on Saturday, but you can check your tracking number tomorrow and see what the estimated delivery date is.

Well I'll give NewEgg a call early tommorow and see if they can add the Saturday charge, if not oh well. Thanks for the heads up.(snowman)

I haven't received any emails from Newegg, this kinda has be a little worried. All I can say is it better get here on Tuesday, I payed $24 for shipping!

Yeah, most likely we will get emails from them today. Until then.

Here's something funny about NewEgg; you wont get ANY e-mails from them on when it's shipped UNTIL around 8 or 9 o'clock PST; then about 11 or 12, you get an invoice e-mail. Don't ask me why they do this, but for some odd reason, it happens EVERY time. They typically have a tracking number around 1 or 2pm PST; but FedEX or UPS never really updates until night time. You package will be shipped today; and you WILL get it on Tuesday. If they fail to deliver it on Tuesday; you will only be refunded the difference of overnight, and 2day; not the full shipping cost.

Not a problem. I found this out the hard way. I too was waiting for the e-mail to be sent to me; but it never arrived until night time. So I decided to go on NewEgg's site, under the order status. I saw that it shipped, but no tracking number. Then about 3 or 4'ish, the tracking number shows up, every time. It's funny how consistent NewEgg really is.
