TigerDirect WTF?

TubeExperience 363 71 October 16, 2016 at 10:43 PM
I ordered an SSD from TigerDirect.

I then got an order status that said: "To Drop Shipper - Your order is being submitted to a third-party warehouse for fulfillment and delivery. You will receive a Shipping Confirmation email once it ships."

No where was it written that TigerDirect didn't have product and that it is being fulfilled by a third party.

An hour after ordering, I got an email saying: "Shipping Status: Back Ordered" and the product now shows as "Currently Out of Stock!"

So, there wasn't even one in stock?

WTF?

TD went bankrupt awhile ago so what did you really expect? I would not order anything from them at this point.

they may have not known. I also thought it was a buyout and closing of the brand by the parent.

Anyway if you did not know the oob the site still sends out emails it seems. I had to unsubscribe. Further I was looking for a tv tuner from hauppauge and they list tigerdirect as a retailer still. its odd and tempting to buy when they have the lowest price. just be sure your cc backs you and will reverse if product is not delivered if you do.

Apparently, TigerDirect is currently being operated by PCM, Inc. which also operates PC Mall and MacMall.

I called customer service and was told that the order should ship today or tomorrow.

Will see, I guess.

Interesting enough, TigerDirect said that it just shipped.

Still no tracking though.
