    I live like 35 miles away from Newegg's warehouse. My order went out yesterday (5/10). Am I wrong for thinking that even if I choose the cheapest shipping it should be here the next day. I mean 35 miles and the delivery says it is scheduled on 5/13.

    It almost makes me think Fedex purposefully sits on packages if they are shipped regular ground.

    It sucks living in the same state I have to pay sales tax too, least they could do is get it to me quickly.

    Maybe next time I should email them and ask about pickup LOL.

    It might arrive the next day (sometimes Fedex beats their estimates), but sometimes it won't. If there aren't any other packages being dropped off in your area the next day, they won't send a truck out just to deliver a single non-rush package. They'll wait until they can send it with a bunch of other packages going to the same general area.

    Big shippers like Fedex/UPS take all their packages back to a central sort facility, then figure out where they're going. So it's at least a 1-day turnaround, no matter how close the destination is. And if they have a lot of high-priority packages that come through that same facility on a particular day, the low-priority ones have to wait.

    Hmm hehe 2 days I could still beat on foot :)

    I'm just anxious to get my memory. Been sitting on this 3200+ for like two months using 2700 memory. I have been defiling it by doing so. Now I just can't wait to crank it up.

    Eh they probably have more orders going to the N.NJ/NYC area than the Trenton/Princeton area. Hopefully it will be waiting for me tomorrow when I get home from work.

    If I order on Monday or Tuesday, I usually have my stuff by the end of the week.

    And yes, FedEx / UPS will sit on packages occasionally - they did it to me once. Sent it out on the truck, then brought it back "because it was too early". I got it a day or two after that.

    Also, sometimes FedEx does funny things with packages. Mine went from NJ to TN, to VA when I ordered some stuff. It's really luck of the draw, although FedEx is usually a day ahead of their own prediction.

    Sometimes 2, usually 3 days, never longer - keep in mind this is m-f, weekends don't count for fedex 2-3 day.

    Living in Whittier CA, which is less than 10 miles away from their La Puente wharehouse. It NEVER takes more than two days for newegg to deliver to me, sometimes its next day. I wish Newegg had a Will Call pick up service. To save on shipping charges, I wouldn't mind driving up their and picking up my stuff, if I could.

    Usually 1 day less than advertised if it is shipped from California.

    From cali ussually 3-4 days. From NJ ussually 2-3 days. Some times from the NJ warehouse Fedex will get it then it will hangout there for an extra day. It ticks me off but still gets here in 3 days. In any case I still get packages a day before it says.
