Whenever I want something and I look on Kmart.com I can never get it. The product is either missing, out of stock, or overpriced.

What was the one website Cheapy accepted an affiliation offer with, but went horribly awry as the guy running the site insulted CAGs as they pointed out poor/shady deals and he even went so far as to make a coupon on mocking Roufuss?

I vote for that site.

Edit: It was VideoGameCentral.com. If you want to read the thread, it's right here.

FamilyVideo.com Still waiting for a Links Crossbow I pre-ordered before Christmas that's on Backorder, but if I went to the website now it's in stock. Not to mention horrible website design and slow shipping for the trifecta of EPIC FAIL!

They have pretty good prices, but nothing ever comes in on time. Pre-orders ship a week+ after release. Their customer service sucks also.

Gamestop / EB Games - Crazy shipping prices and if you choose to buy a used game, you are unsure if you will receive a case or instructions with it. Plus, their customer service just sucks.

Gamestop, they screwed me over so many preorder bonuses in 2007 and my games are always packaged poorly from them.

EToys/KBtoys.com, because they refused to honor their pricematch guarantee on the KBToys instore advertised prices, even when I called a week before hand to make sure the deal would be matched, and was assured it would be. (I'm talking about the BF b1g1 deal.) Honsetly, I don't care if you didn't mean to match the deal, but your operator assured me that this specific deal would be matched, and you have a recording of the conversation to prove it.

I'd have to go with EB.com/GS.com again, due to their issues with preorder SKU's changing in the pre-order timeframe.

I'd say gamestop, but I never order from them since typically I want a case and instruction booklet with my games. Gamestop.com was dead to me years ago. So this year, I'm placing my vote for Newegg.com since they never shipped a copy of rock band until after the new year.

If two wrongs don't make a right, try three.

Best Buy. There customer service does not help you. They question everything and are not customer friendly. There shipping is horrible. For example I ordered an item on black Friday and I recieved it on January 4th.
