Electronic Waste Recycling Act
The Electronic Waste Recycling Act ("Act") became law in California on January 1, 2005. The primary objective of this law is to initiate a recycling program for computer products containing chemicals deemed hazardous to the environment. To fund this program, California requires retailers and e-tailers to collect, on the state's behalf, a fee for each product covered by this law. The fee is paid by the consumer at the time of purchase of the covered product. This fee will be remitted directly to the state by and only applies to orders shipped within California.
The types of products that we are required to collect this recycling fee include cathode ray tubes, cathode ray tube devices, flat panel screens, and other similar video display devices. The actual amount of the recycling fee will vary, based on the screen size of the product when measured diagonally, as follows:
Greater than 4" and less than 15" -- $6.00
Greater than or equal to 15" and less than 35" -- $8.00
Greater than or equal to 35" -- $10.00
For more information concerning the scope and details of the Act, please refer to the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery's website or to the Department of Toxic Substances Control's website.
Cell Phone and Rechargeable Battery Recycling Program
Newegg.com has a system in place for the acceptance and collection of used cell phones and used rechargeable batteries for reuse, recycling or proper disposal. Please click here for information about that system and how you may be able to use that system, at no cost to you.
Newegg.com, like other e-tailers, ships items in the condition they were received from the original manufacturer/distributor. Newegg.com does not conduct product testing before shipping any merchandise.
Marketplace: Newegg Marketplace sellers may or may not conduct product testing. Check the Seller's Policy Page for information on the product testing practices of individual Marketplace sellers.
"Must Be Purchased with Hardware"
The "must be purchased with hardware" precept is mandated by the software publisher. In accordance, Newegg.com customers must purchase some type of product which falls under the general category of computer hardware in order to purchase applicable software. Hardware is classified as any component that will be used when assembling a computer system (a hard drive, motherboard, processor and a floppy drive are all examples of merchandise that will qualify). There is no specific or set price the hardware has to be, merely that there is some sort of eligible hardware present in the order itself.
Money Back Guarantee/Refund Policy
All merchandise unless otherwise indicated may be returned within 30 days from the original invoice date for a refund. CPUs must be returned within 7 days from the invoice date for a refund. A return authorization number is required for all returns. A 15% restocking fee may apply. Additional deductions may be made for CPU returns to reflect the current market value. These terms apply to all refunds. Most products are shipped with a refund/replacement guarantee period unless otherwise noted in the product listing. Customers must inform Newegg.com of any order discrepancy within 7 days from the invoice date so that we may investigate and resolve the situation accordingly.
Newegg.com SATISFACTION GUARANTEE - Newegg.com offers our customers a 30-day satisfaction replacement or refund guarantee on all purchases, except:
7-day replacement or refund guarantee on all CPUs, including Open Box processors. All other Open Box merchandise has a 15-day warranty period.
For CPUs, the base cost will reflect the current market value, and the 15% restocking fee will be applied after this adjustment.
Downloadable software may not be exchanged or returned for a refund after purchase.
DVDs are non-refundable but may be exchanged for a functional version of the same film by using the pre-paid shipping label packaged with your order.
Marketplace: If you purchase an item from a Newegg Marketplace seller and need to return it, you must return that item to the Marketplace seller rather than to Newegg. In general, Newegg Marketplace sellers will honor Newegg's Money Back Guarantee and Return Policy set forth above. However, certain exceptions may apply. Check the Seller's Policy Page for the return policies of individual Marketplace sellers. In the event of a conflict between Newegg's return policies and those on a Seller's Policy Page, the Seller's Policy Page return polices shall apply to your orders from that seller.
Cell Phone Return Policy
Customers who purchase wireless communication equipment, such as cell phones, from Newegg.com and who purchase a wireless communication service plan from a third party through Newegg.com as part of the same order, have an opportunity to try out the service and equipment to make sure they are satisfied. If according to the agreement for wireless service between Customer and their wireless service provider Customer is able to cancel their service (Service cancellation is actually governed by the terms of your agreement with the wireless service provider and should be reviewed) within 14-days (however it may instead be thirty (30) days for activations by customers whose primary place of use of the service is within the State of California (i.e. the customer's service is activated using a California area code) and who purchase their service on or after December 6, 2004) then Customer may also return the wireless communication equipment within such same time period (i.e. 14 days or 30 days as applicable) after Activation, with no early termination fee, no non-usage based fee, no restocking fee and no reimbursement of any equipment discount. Please click here for information about how you may return the equipment should such be allowed as set forth above.
Software Return Policy
Retail Software may only be returned for refund within 30 days of the invoice date if the packaging is unopened and untampered with. Opened retail software cannot be returned for refund. If you have opened a retail software purchase to discover a damaged and/or defective disc, you may exchange the software for an identical replacement by contacting Newegg.com Customer Service firstname.lastname@example.org and acquiring an RMA number. All OEM software including the operating system is 100% non-refundable once purchased and delivered. OEM versions are intended for system builders only and cannot be transferred to another PC once it is installed. Purchasers of this software are required to comply with the terms of the System Builder License, including responsibility for providing all end-user support. Newegg.com is not responsible for system/software incompatibility, and incompatibility issues do not qualify software as damaged or defective. Customers are encouraged to contact the respective software publisher for answers to technical questions, such as minimum system requirements, prior to purchase.
Marketplace: Newegg Marketplace sellers may have software return policies that differ from Newegg's software return policy set forth above. Check the Seller's Policy Page for the software return policies of individual Marketplace sellers.

Physical Damage Policy
Physical damage to any product purchased at Newegg.com will effectively void warranty coverage. Improper Installation of CPU fans and/or improper clocking may cause CPUs to chip. CPUs that are chipped, burnt or have bent pins are considered physically damaged and cannot be returned for refund or replacement. Physical damage includes but is not limited to improper handling and/or any other type of damage sustained by irregular usage. Newegg.com encounters bent pins regularly when inspecting physically damaged CPUs. Forcing a processor into position will not solve an installation problem and may consequently void any applicable warranty coverage. Intel and AMD will not accept physically damaged processors back from Newegg.com. As a result, Newegg.com will return any physically damaged CPU back to the customer at the customer's expense.
A 15% restocking fee will be applied to all returns for refund. Shipping charges are non-refundable. No refunds after 30 days.
Marketplace: If you purchase an item from a Newegg Marketplace seller and need to return it, you must return that item to the Marketplace seller rather than to Newegg, and the return of that item will be subject to the restocking fee policies of that Marketplace seller rather than those of Newegg. Check the Seller's Policy Page for the restocking fee policies of individual Marketplace sellers.
Newegg.com does not offer any sort of technical assistance. We cannot offer advice on compatibility of items, make product recommendations, provide technical support or sales advice. We post all of the information the manufacturer provides us with for your convenience. Please contact the manufacturer directly for accurate answers to your technical questions or for additional information or specifications that are not posted at Newegg.com.
Marketplace: If you purchase an item from a Newegg Marketplace seller and need technical support, please direct your requests for technical assistance to that seller.

Click the Pre-order button in the item description and checkout as you normally would. A Sales Order number will be issued at the Order Confirmation screen just as if you were placing a conventional order, but your credit/debit card will not be charged until your pre-ordered DVD or software is in stock and ready to ship. If you purchase an in-stock item with a pre-order item, you will be charged accordingly for the available product and the difference when your pre-ordered item is in stock and ready for shipment. In this instance, two Sales Order numbers will be issued; one for the in-stock merchandise and one for the pre-ordered merchandise. You will be kept up-to-date via our Web site and through standard Order Status emails to your account.
Marketplace: Pre-ordering is not currently available for items offered for purchase from Newegg Marketplace sellers.
We will never purposely charge a customer for an item that we do not physically have in stock at the time of purchase. Occasional inventory discrepancies may occur due to inaccurate inventory counts or possibly because the last few items on our shelves are damaged and/or not in a condition that we can sell to a customer. In that instance, we will refund your credit/debit card for the item, along with any applicable tax fees and shipping charges. An automated email will also be sent to your Newegg.com login to alert you of the situation.
We will sometimes allow you to backorder an item that is out of stock. However, these items will be clearly marked with a Backorder button. Click the Backorder button in the item description and checkout as you normally would. A Sales Order number will be issued at the Order Confirmation screen just as if you were placing a conventional order, but your credit/debit card will not be charged until your backordered item is in stock and ready to ship. If you purchase an in-stock item with a backorder item, you will be charged accordingly for the available product and the difference when your backordered item is in stock and ready for shipment. In this instance, two Sales Order numbers will be issued; one for the in-stock merchandise and one for the backordered merchandise. You will be kept up-to-date via our Web site and through standard Order Status emails to your account.
Marketplace: Backordering is not currently available for items offered by Newegg Marketplace sellers.

Safe Shopping Guarantee
Fair Credit Billing Act: We guarantee that every online transaction you make will be 100% safe. This means you pay nothing if unauthorized charges are made to your card as a result of shopping at our online store. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 for fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made while using our secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
You may request a change to your order provided the order has not already been charged to your account. Please call 1-800-390-1119 during Newegg.com's hours of operation to request a change to your order. Please have your sales order (SO) or customer number ready for better assistance. We strongly discourage sending change order requests via email because it is unlikely we will receive the message in time to make an adjustment due to the sheer volume of emails we receive each day.
You may request that an order be cancelled provided the order has not already been processed and shipped. Simply call 1-800-390-1119 during Newegg.com's hours of operation to request an order cancellation. You will receive a credit for the full amount to your credit/debit card in approximately 1-2 business days.
