Default Re: BUY.COM screwed me. :(

*thread revival*

Buy.com does suck. I ordered a wow card from them a week ago and they still haven't even shipped the damn thing, even though they listed it in stock when I ordered it. They even listed it as having my order already "sent to the warehouse," then two days after I order it, it moves back to the processing stage. Emailing their support staff is worthless.

Apparently my experience is not at all unique. They commonly list items as being in stock when they aren't really in stock, and people often get screwed by having to wait a month to get a damn thing.

Dumbasses. Last time I order anything from them. If it weren't for the google checkout discount, I'd have canceled by now. Not that it would do much good, apparently when people cancel a long delayed order, they end up getting it way late anyways and aren't allowed a refund.

And just a follow up, the BBB route worked. The initial response they gave was the same BS their phone people sent me. I wouldn't accept that their answer was adequate and the next response was a tracking # for the part I was originally missing in my shipment.

Never had a problem with Buy.com, but perhaps I'm just lucky. I never turn to them unless they either have a deal exceedingly better than anyone else. If Newegg has the same item for $5 more I'll definitely buy from them instead.

QFT. I have never ordered from them. I don't order a lot online but when I do I usually go through newegg for all my tech needs, etc.

I guess I will stay away from buy.com no matter what...

whoa buy.com sure has changed since last time i ordered anything from them. maybe i'll stay away from them and order stuff from amazon.com or so. btw, amazon.com's customer service is freaking awesome and fast.

only bad thing about amazon.com is: they charge me taxes since amazon is in same city where i live. oh well no biggies.
