Anyone else ever had problems with Overstock? They just sent me someone else's order who's from IA, and he must probably has my book which I've been waiting a week for. IA, MN, their so close alphabetically, who would notice the mistake? Arggh, idiots.

I ordered from the Big O before, and it went very smoothly...and quickly. I had my book two days after I ordered it!

They do have mixed reviews on Reseller Ratings though.
No, I like women.

OK, so I'm on their live chat thing now. First time I get "disconected" second time I'm on hold for years.

Not bad...

They are going to send me a UPS ARS label for me to return it with. The only problem? It's going to take anywhere from 1-4 business days for me to get that label in my inbox.

They have still not sent me an ARS label, and are being very slow in responding to me in an online chat. I don't plan on purchasing from these shmuck's anymore.

No kidding. Without her, their commercials would suck.

Without disclosing too much info, do not buy the extended warranty. If you have a problem with the unit before the extended warranty begins they will basically put you off until the extended warranty begins. If you indicate to the warranty company that you called Overstock about the problem before the extended warranty began they will refuse to cover a pre-existing problem and refer you back to Overstock. Also any item under 200 dollars has to be mailed to the warranty company at owner expense, and then the customer is offered a settlement on the unit and it takes 6 - 8 weeks if everything goes well, typically much longer. Also beware of the computers, laptops and components they sell, there is a high DOA rate and they usually do not include any software or operating system for the unit. Some people even complain that there is previous owner information on "refurbished" units.

The only way I'd buy from Overstock again is if you paid for the item, and paid me for having to use Overstock. Their service was absolutely unacceptable, and they were unable to correct their errors in proper timing.
