Strong Sales of VR and Gaming Notebooks Fuel the Most Successful Black
November in Company History

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#NeweggNewegg,
the holiday shopping destination of choice for tech enthusiasts,
recently closed the books on its most successful Black November to date,
driven in large part by strong sales from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday.
In aggregate, during this five-day period Newegg sales increased 19.1%
year-over-year. In contrast, online shopping as a whole increased 15.2%
over that same period (Adobe Digital Insights, November 29, 2016).
Newegg outpaced e-commerce industry trends with strong sales of virtual
reality (VR) equipment, gaming notebooks and video game consoles.
Popular PC upgrade components and accessories such as graphics cards,
SSDs and monitors were also popular.

With less than three weeks until Christmas, Newegg offers some helpful
tips for holiday shoppers in search of the perfect gift:

Ship to FedEx Locations

With so many people shopping online this time of year, it’s no surprise
thieves are out in force. Customers can follow these recommendations to
keep “porch pirates” at bay:

  • Take advantage of Newegg’s new “Hold
    for Pick-up at FedEx Location
    ” option for secure storage and
    convenient pick up
  • When shipping to residential addresses, customers can track
    their order status
    to know when their packages will arrive and
    limit how long they sit unattended at their homes
  • And for added peace of mind, customers can install
    an IP/Network camera
    to deter thieves, and capture valuable visual
    evidence if a package is taken

Get to Know Shipping Deadlines

When shopping online in December, it’s valuable to understand various shipping
deadlines
. This will save customers money and help them avoid the
frustration of gifts that arrive after Christmas.

Make Well-informed Purchasing Decisions

Finding the perfect gift – especially tech products – can be a daunting
task. Before making a purchase, make sure to browse some of the millions
of customer reviews on Newegg.com. And Newegg’s customer service team is
always on hand to offer expert advice and support before and after
purchase.

Understand the Ins and Outs of VR

Some of the hottest sellers this holiday are products that bring VR into
the home. VR requires powerful computers; it’s possible a component or
two may need to be upgraded to ensure a flawless VR experience. Visit Newegg’s
VR portal
to learn what you need and how to check to ensure your
machine is VR-ready.

Whether shopping from home or on the go, Newegg’s desktop, mobile and
app-based shopping experience is second to none. For more information
