Newegg might not be a household name, but it's definitely a familiar one among Canadian techies. Although Newegg.ca only popped up in October of 2008, the company was founded by Fred Chan in 2001 at their headquarters in California. The company quickly ramped up operations and respect in the industry, being named one of the internet's Top 10 retailers by Internet Retailer Magazine in 2005. This honour was in no small part due to the nearly 1 billion in sales the company amassed the year before. In 2009, it was listed as #234 on the Forbes America's Largest Private Companies with 2,400 employees and $2.5 billion in revenue.
Aside from the sales of hardware and software products, Newegg is also heavily into sponsoring technology events and computer gaming tournaments for popular titles like Counter-Strike, Warcraft III, Rome: Total War amongst others. To expedite efficient global shipping and reach, Newegg has 4 warehouses in the United States, one in Canada, and eight in China, competing with the likes of Best Buy.
The company was founded in 2001, a period of time when the dot-com bust was in full swing. The "egg" in the name is used as a symbol of birth and potential, with "new" representing the hope for e-commerce in a period of time when businesses engaged in online commerce were going bankrupt.
Newegg.ca has a handy and robust "Daily Deals" section that offers anywhere from 5% to 30% off computers, components, electronics, data storage devices, and more. But be quick! The tagline for this section is "Deal Today, Gone Tomorrow". If you see something that catches your eye, don't count on the items and deals lasting!
In addition to deals and promotions on Newegg.ca, the company offers frequent coupons to use toward the purchase of specific items, with the occasional coupon that you can use toward your entire purchase. Past coupons have included:
- 10% off select items
- $10 to $20 off select items
- Free shipping on the various electronics
