I have used dutch version of Alternate for all my PC needs, it’s great and has amazing fast delivery and very sharp prices. Every amazon / newegg etc deal that’s being listed here is still cheaper on Alternate without discount!
Only just now found an exception. Ive been wanting the 970 evo for a while now. Weeks before black friday it was 120 eur on alternate.nl. Today on alternate it’s on discount to 110 euros. Amazon.com all this time was 140 and finally on amazon.de it dropped to 100.
Thats the only time I could find an amazon deal that was cheaper than alternate (which were almost all without discount, only the 970 evo just now).
I never had to sent anything back to alternate (nothing ever broke) so idk how that process is.
Try looking at the 1920x threadripper prices. 450 dollars (395eur) on amazon.com. 354eur on amazon.de. and 349eur on alternate.nl. That difference is minimal but alternate delivers tomorrow if bought before 20:00 (always been true for me so far) and its free shipping after 50 euros i think.
Edit: after writing this. I am more inclined to stop looking for deals on amazon and stick with alternate. The constant comparing isnt worth the minimal difference and easy checkout and delivery of alternate (btw there is supply difference between the german and dutch version, might wanne check that out if sold out, idk if they cross deliver though)
