    After I blow the rest of my BBTS credit, I think I'm switching to TFsource. Their better prices (on preorders that I want lately) free shipping on larger orders, and having a type of pol on top of all the positive things I've heard of them...just makes me want to drop bbts.

    Just make sure you only pay with Paypal, unless you want to go through having your CC # lost/stolen.

    New site layout is much better. The free shipping option over $150 is great too. Changed my Giant preorder from BBTS to TFSource.

    I did hear about those CC issue they had in the past. Using my CC via PayPal whenever I buy through them now. No problems so far.

    Free shipping on US orders is cool, no specification on the discount international orders receive is not. Is it on a case by case basis?

    Also, no point usage for customers outside the US? WTF?

    Just remember too that when you preorder anything at TFSource, you're locked into it. If you change your mind later, if you find a better price, too bad, can't cancel.

    I love the fact they seem to have removed that little stipulation from their preorder pages and have now buried it in the FAQ in their help section.

    On the old site they made sure customers knew because it was on every preorder, so I'm not sure if its an oversight or what. I thought maybe they got rid of that but nope, there it is:

    Legally binding, give me a break. :lol

    I don't see what's so funny. Just like eBay, you agree to purchase the item and they agree to obtain it for you. They have zero obligation to refund your money unless they do not deliver the item or the item is defective. Other than that...

    And the site looks good,

    Given the pains our community has had over security and credit card theft the last few years any notes/comments on any new security improvements with the site?

    Hope you aren't seriously expecting a response on this, considering there was little to no response any of the three separate occasions they got compromised before.

    Here's a good question though...

    Say I purchased 5 items.. for simplicity lets assume each item was 30$... so 150$ is the base cost.

    Item A has a ship cost of 10$ alone, and ships in May.
    Item B has a ship cost of 5$, available for ship immediately.
    Item C has a ship cost of 20$, ships in July.
    Item D ships for 10$ as well, ships August.
    Item E ships for 5$, ships August as well.

    As folks know, TFSource charges for items upon immediate availablility. So Item B is charged immediately for 35$, and atm I assume that A will be charged 40$, etc., etc...

    Now... with the new system... will:

    A) TFS charge the 200$ total, and customer get no benefit from the the new "free shipping" program...

    or

    B) TFS charges 200$, but upon hitting "Ship my items" puts 50$ into store credit?

    I suppose A makes sense... but I'd have to say B would make many folks, including myself, think it's very much worth preordering future goods with TFS over other US-based vendors.

    ((Tho I see there's a "pay now" option for preorders... so I'm guessing that means you'd use this to not be charged shipping?))
