What mistakes have you made while online shopping? I did the dumb thing and ordered an item on Friday with "1-3 business day shipping"....

I just did that for my Nexus 5 :(

When I bought my Raspberry Pi I didn't notice the section to add accessories to the base board and instead bought them all separate. I ended up spending 104$ vs 65$.

It took my Chinese made stuff about 2 :/. Once I bought a camera for 500 bucks and then it said free one day shipping, or pay for two day shipping. One day was a special offer but I spent 15 bucks on two days shipping. Then when I Turned on the camera I noticed odd flashes on the screen. Had to return it :/

Weekends don't count as business days.

And? Worst case scenario is that you get your stuff in wednesday then

I'm impatient when it comes to shipping. I always check up on things. And seeing package tracking saying "Preparing for Sipment" for three whole days isn't fun.

Bought a battery from Hong Kong off ebay. Bad idea. Took 7 weeks to get here, died after 3 full charges. Wasted 70 dollars.

I don't buy off ebay anymore, takes way too long for shipping.

Only trust Google, Amazon, Newegg, NCIX, Futureshop, and Chapters/Indigo/Coles.

I've had something similar, except they gave me free express shipping and it arrived at Melbourne airport the next day. It was a 7850 and it died 3 weeks after arrival.

I have rechargeable batterys for the Xbox controllers and they work great (they were a proper brand though, I think they are Venom) but got them cheap haha from eBay from Hong Kong.

Asia sells cheap stuff, but the shipping takes forever, so I don't buy from Asia.
