TigerDirect : Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary


TigerDirect  TigerDirect

A large Canadian retailer of computer components. They have websites for 14 countries, including the USA, most under the name Misco. They take PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Amex. They do not take Interac or cheques. Shipping is not included in prices. They ship by UPS (United Parcel Service of America) which usually ends up cheaper than Canada Post. Canadians need to pay both federal GST (Goods and Services Tax) and provincial PST (Provincial Sales Tax) or the combined HST (Harmonised Sales Tax). You may also have to pay a recycling fee. That is not their fault. It is to required by the government to pay for eventually recycling the equipment even if you abandon it at the curb. They offer an affiliate program via LinkShare.

If you buy by PayPal in Canada they charge 4% exchange rate, even though they are in Canada too and even though the US dollar is at par.

The did not pay affiliate commissions and ignored me twice when I wrote to get it sorted out.
