Tigerdirect- Bait and Switch is a rip off

*Consumer Suggestion: This happens everywhere...

I have placed a couple of small orders with tigerdirect with no trouble, then when I tried to order an higher end item that they had on sale low and behold every system I tried to order was nolonger available, the systems were ordered the same day I recieved thier catalog, this is the secound time this has happened to me in the last couple of months. The first time I just thought because the deal was so good, it could happen, however when it happens twice in a row, that tells me something is not right. I am not accussing them of anything, but it sure does look funny. I tried to contact them but it took so long that after 30 minutes on hold I thought enough is enough. I did place an order for around $150 more than what I was supposed to pay as I live far away from any source for parts and related items, thats when they hit me with the what I think is a high shipping charge($96.00).

#1 Consumer Suggestion

This happens everywhere...

AUTHOR: Jon - (U.S.A.)

This happens a lot with computer companies that are online. From the way I read your text, it seems as if you wern't going online. usually has everything online WAY before it comes out in the magazine so it probably all sold out via online purchases before you even got your magazine.
