Newegg Takes on Amazon Prime with Newegg Premiere

by Shane McGlaun

Back when Amazon Prime first launched I made fun of it and generally thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever heard. In my mind, I would never buy enough items for Amazon to cover the yearly fee to be a member. In practice only a few short months after signing up, I was hooked. I bet there are lots of people out there that feel the same way.

Other retailers online are trying to compete with Amazon Prime, including electronics purveyor Newegg. If you are a computer geek, you probably remember Newegg as the place you went when TigerDirect didn’t have the computer products you wanted back in the day. These days, Newegg sells all sorts of electronics.

Newegg is trying to compete with Amazon Prime with the new Newegg Premier service Beta. The service costs $49.99(USD) per year and will give you free expedited shipping on anything you order. Premier shipping promises to have your items in your hands in two to three days, and discounts on rush shipping. It also includes special deals just for members, no restocking or return shipping fees, and early alerts for sales and events.

Newegg is offering a 30-day trial to see how much you like the service. Sadly, it offers no streaming video or free digital books like Prime.
