So I contacted newegg and heres what they said:

"You have recently placed The Intel E6300 and 6400 CPUs on your website. My question is, why has newegg.com set the prices so much higher then every other vendor. Other vendors sell this same CPU at 210$ while you sell them at 390$. People are concerned and there's even talk about boycotts. Is this pricing a mistake or intentional?"




"Thank you for contacting Newegg.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Newegg presently does not price match our competitors. We already negotiate the lowest possible prices we can and offer them directly to all of our customers. All current pricing and inventory is posted on our website in a real-time format. Prices are non-negotiable. In addition, we do not offer volume or wholesale discounts. Anytime we receive any specials or promotions, we will immediately post them on our website.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

If you have any further questions, please visit our FAQs page or let us know via replying this email.

Thank you,

Karen Gao"

Praise the lord! The boycott is working. Let's see if you can get remuneration for their treachery! Let's not forget the e6600 is still overpriced at 419! These *******s must be stopped! Join the Newegg Boycott my friends victory is within sight!
