They had me go through a bunch of hoops when I ordered my Asus Transformer Prime after that I didn't have any issues.

Wtf?
Front and back of credit card? So they can see that 3digit code on the back that is required for online Purchases ? And drivers license? So they have ur address? And signature? Sounds like a setup for identity theft lol
I wouldn't do it... smells fishy.

I ordered from them for the first time during Black Friday sales and never got that kind of request. Just call them up and talk to a service rep instead.. you can give all the info over the phone.

Radhika and folks at ME contacted me just minutes ago, and told me that they would waive the requirements in my case.

It's a bit of a relief for me because, although I do trust the folks at ME, like you guys I was a bit anxious at sending this type of personal data by email. I know they already have most of my info through my web order anyways, but it seemed like the risks were increased with transferring this type of info through unsecured communication.

Anyhow, I appreciate your feedback folks, I think the bottom line is that while it is understandable that businesses want to protect themselves in e-commerce, customers also want some security and want to avoid jumping through hoops that risk exposing them to identity theft or other nightmares (and id theft can be a real nightmare from what I heard...).

I PM'd the AMD FX-6100 from NCIX: $144.99 on ME and $99.99 on NCIX, so it ended up about $88.75.

For those whose orders are currently processing, when did you guys order? It seems like things are going pretty slow. I hope mine will process this week!

Anyone have their orders ship yet? PM'd the Asus S56 from Tiger Direct on the 28th but I haven't heard anything beyond the initial confirmation email. I really hope they honour their original PM as Tiger Direct has since bumped their own price up!

Same for me. I made a PM on a GTX 680 on the 27th, and they have yet to approve or cancel the order. I'm losing hope that they will actually approve it since I was price matching a one day sale.

I've had this happen before. PM'd some memory during a limited sale which ended a day after my order was placed. I didn't see any change to my ME order for several days and then it was abruptly shipped. They're usually pretty solid with fulfilling PM's, so there shouldn't be much to worry about.

anyone had an order shipped yet?

Placed on the 27th in morning.

Also on the 29th.

Still marked as 'new order.' The prices I wanted to match from the ncix sale are over. hope they price match or I will cancel.

I received a shipping confirmation for my order placed on the 25th this afternoon. My order placed on the 27th is still as 'new order'. I called in the other day and have them verify the price matches over the phone for the 27th order. They made a note on it that the PMs were approved. Here's hoping it gets processed in the next day or two.

Well, color me impressed. They seem to be moving forward with my pricematch. I got a new status for my order of ''WaitingForParts''. Good job! I think I will order from them more regularly.

Do they notify you if something has shipped? First time using them. I took the $5 shipping does that have a tracking number? They just have it listed as "NewOrder"

Yes they notify you by email when your order has been shipped. Look for an email with the subject:
"Your order (<OrderID>) has been shipped." The email comes from websales@memoryexpress.com.

All orders come with tracking numbers no matter their cost.
The email will include your tracking number with a link to the website of the shipping carrier you used (CP, UPS, Purolator, etc).

They said they would ship orders placed on the 27th, but my orders were not shipped yet...

Also looks like I'll have to cancel the GTX 680 order too since that may not arrive in time by Jan. 15 MIR deadline.
