I just ordered a new hard drive from PC Connection and when I went to check out I got quite a surprise.
I realize that for a while companies have been charging more for shipping to residential addresses than business, but PC Connection has taken this to a whole new level. My home address was first on the account as the account pre-dates my office, so when I went to buy the drive it was pre-selected and shipping was charged thusly:
Whoa. I switched it to my business address and:
got free shipping instead. Much better.
That is crazy. If I were you, I would contact them and tell them how nuts this is. Let them know that unless they get their act together, you will post this to Consumerist.
