tigerdirect = honest or scammers?

I went to buy a nokia phone on this site where it was advertised at a good price and free shipping. Well, after signing up for an account and all that crap, when I get to checkout the only "free" shipping available is to join their "inner circle" at $100 a year (think Amazon Prime but not as good). Bullshit.

I got into a chat with CSR who verifies it is authorized for free shipping but claims it is "working on their end". Again, bullshit. I didn't get free ship option with IE or Chrome. She wanted me to order over the phone... Credit info over the phone? Hell, no.

Anyone have experience with them... good or bad?

Not personally but a guy I work with orders all his computer components from them. He likes them better than NewEgg.

Re: tigerdirect = honest or scammers?

Well, I found my problem, no thanks to their CSRs. If you use both address lines it screws up their checkout. So I can see that it would work for the CSR but not for me. Still, the checkout has a rather serious flaw. I hope the guy who did that doesn't do security...
