Check out this underhanded attempt to sucker people in. I have purchased a few items from TD and have always thought of them as scruplous, but this has seriously made me rethink doing business with them ever again. :shake:

I have done a lot of business with them for work and some personal.... never had anything go wrong before but I remember getting the email that had that flash drive offer on it.

I was very close to buying the thing but luckily as it turns out, our new corporate rep is a dipshit and never gets back to you when you need him.

When he did finally get back to me i told him I changed my mind about buying anything in the 3 days that I had to contemplate it.


Lucky me, for once.

I've used TD before and have gotten some awesome prices on motherboards and powersupplies. Not that I condone this, but you just have to be a smart consumer and always assume that you are being ripped off.

All he had to do was contact them and cancel the use of the CA product before 30 days was up.

I go to Tigerdirect sometimes just because their warehouse is in Naperville, IL about 2 miles from me so instead of ordering through their website, I just go to the store at the warehouse and pick it up there. However, they severely understaff the store so sometimes it's over an hour to get an item from the warehouse at the store. Many times if I can find something at Best Buy, CC or Fry's for a comparable price, I'll just go there and avoid the headache of their store, but TD carries a ton of stuff that other stores don't carry.

I still have yet tÝ be let down from Mac/PC Mall.

They had a tech out here in 3 days to fix my fried motherboard and then cleaned it (I'm a smoker) for free on top...
