They have two different types of shipping for free items. Lately, I've seen more free UPS 3day, but there's an "egg saver" shipping that's 3-7 days sometimes.

Stick everything in the cart and see what it offers.

most likely it will be the 3-7 day shipping hikari is talking about. when i have orderd games with the eggsaver shipping it does take 7 days to get to me. so if 3 day shipping is not that much more then i would fork over the extra $15 for it. and when they say 3 days they mean 3 days. eg, if you order on monday it will get to your house on wed or thursday. depending on where you live of course.

newegg shipping is awesome.

I ordered a game, it had to be shipped across country. They shipped it late so they had to air mail it (the option usually cost a ton if you select it) at the cost of 3 day shipping. most companies would of just made you wait a week or two to get it.

3 days to them means 3 days. (unless you order at like midnight or on a sat/sunday...)

All the items will be 3day in that case. You'll get your stuff by Monday I would imagine.

it'll all come in like one to two big boxes all together. they usually don't ship stuff separate unless it's coming from 2 different warehouses. Case and monitor will come in separate boxes..and games usually come from somewhere else too.

have fun!
