Newegg has launched an Amazon Prime competitor called Premier

Posted Feb 5, 2014

Newegg has created a competitor to Amazon Prime called Premier. Newegg Premier offers free three-day shipping, discounted expedited shipping, and free returns. The service costs $49 per year.


Newegg is considered the second largest e-commerce company with 25 million registered users after Amazon. Newegg may be able to capitalize on a rumored price increase of Amazon Prime.

?We always seek ways to improve the customer experience and implementing a benefit program is the latest example of how we?re making it easier and more rewarding to shop at,? stated Soren Mills, Chief Marketing Officer of Newegg North America. ?Free expedited shipping is in itself a great benefit, but beyond that we?re including many other perks to enhance the shopping experience.?

Newegg’s Premier service also has pricing alerts, member-only prices, and a dedicated customer service phone number.
