An Ode to My Precious FrankenBuild PC

I’ve been building my own workstations for years, and changing from one build to the next is always exciting and a little bit sad. I’m nearing the end of my current PC’s life, and it’ll be time to move on to the next new hotness soon.

Newegg Premier Membership aims to take a bite out of Amazon Prime

newegg premier membership serviceOh, the time I used to spend putting together dream workstations on Newegg. Looks like they’re getting tired of people like me putting products in our shopping carts, and are looking for ways to make it easier for us to push “Ship”.

Welcome Newegg Premier, a $49.99 per year membership fee gets you three day shipping (better rates on 2-day and overnight), no restocking fees on returns with complimentary shipping, early notifications on sales and events, and exclusive deals. You can sign up for a free 30 day trial, and Newegg will throw in 100 “Egg Points” (worth a dollar towards your next purchase).

Newegg will have to combat Amazon’s included media services, but the timing on this move could be pretty good, as there are rumors Amazon might be increasing the price of Prime. For people focused on the shopping experience, this could be an interesting (potentially cheaper) alternative.
