store guide

Newegg sells an extensive selection of computer hardware and parts, plus electronics, home and garden products, office supplies, sporting goods, health and beauty, and more.

Here are the types of discounts you can expect to find at Newegg, and tips on how you can save on your next purchase.

Types of Coupons at Newegg

There are a massive amount of Newegg coupon codes available to customers. They offer hundreds of coupons every month throughout the year. We've seen the highest number of coupons become available in July, August, October, and November.

General sitewide codes do exist, but they're not released often and there are usually certain requirements that apply, plus maximum discounts. There are also codes that apply to broader categories or selections of items, but the vast majority of Newegg coupons apply to specific individual products. Newegg will often list a code right on the product page for the item it applies to, but not in every case.

Newegg releases many of its codes to email subscribers. When you apply a coupon at Newegg, you will first be prompted to enter your email address. If you then enter a code that is exclusive to email subscribers and you're not yet signed up for their emails, you will be required to sign up in order to use the code.

Discounts to Expect: Sitewide Coupons

We've seen Newegg release general-use coupon codes anywhere from one to four times a month, but not every month. We've seen them more consistently during the second half of the year, particularly in November and December.

A typical discount is 10% off with no minimum using a certain checkout option or payment form, like PayPal, MasterPass, or Visa Checkout. There have been similar codes that instead take a dollar amount off with a minimum purchase, such as $25 off $200. Other codes may require purchasing through the mobile site or app. We have also seen 5% off general-use coupons with no particular requirements, released a couple of times per year, but it's a rare discount.

Discounts to Expect on Specific Items

Since most Newegg coupons apply to individual products, they tend to work best for those who have some flexibility when it comes to the particular item they want to purchase. This might mean having a few key specs in mind, but being open to different brands or models. Newegg offers a steady stream of codes, but they also sell millions of products and finding a coupon for one particular model precisely at the time you need it is unlikely.

Not surprisingly, an overwhelming majority of Newegg coupon codes apply to the computer category, with the highest number of codes for storage items like internal hard drives and SSDs, external hard drives, and flash drives. Networking products, like routers, switches, adapters, and range extenders, are also popular, as are codes for peripherals (monitors, keyboards, and printers); upgrades and components (video cards, cases, and case power supplies); laptops, desktops, and tablets; and software and computer accessories.

After computers, we see the highest amount of discounts for electronics, particularly audio components like speakers and headphones, and cell phone accessories, mostly chargers and charging cables. Following electronics, we see the most coupons for home and garden items. Coupons in this category often apply to small appliances and home security cameras. Then we have computer or video games, with coupons mostly applying to PC games, but also to specific video game titles for various consoles and Mac games. Finally, we have coupons for office supplies, such as ink, toner, and storage media.

More Ways to Save at Newegg

Besides signing up for Newegg emails, which is essentially a requirement for using codes at their site, you can also watch for frequent sale events. These sales generally last from a day to a week at a time and they may include coupon codes for various products, but you can also find good deals by way of instant savings.

There are also Shell Shocker and NeweggFlash deals, which offer special limited-time savings on select products. Exclusive discounts are available for using the mobile version of the site. Newegg also lists mail-in rebates on product pages for eligible items or in the Rebate Center. Rebates can combine with codes or instant savings for an even higher discount.

Serious Newegg shoppers can consider joining Newegg Premier with memberships starting at $19.99 for three months. Benefits include free expedited shipping, free returns, and no restocking fees on eligible items, plus exclusive member discounts.

Shipping Costs

Newegg does not have a specific ongoing offer for free shipping, but many items around the site ship for free. If free shipping is available, it will be listed on the product page. Return shipping is free if an item is defective; otherwise, you can purchase a discounted return shipping label from Newegg or pay to ship it back. Note that some items can't be returned or require a restocking fee, so be aware of this information before purchasing.

How to Redeem a Code at Newegg

Add a product to the cart and click View Shopping Cart. Scroll down to the Apply Promo Codes section in the cart. You will be prompted to enter your email address and, once the page refreshes, you will see an Enter Promo Code field for applying the code.

You can enter more than one code per order at Newegg, but stacking in the truest sense of the word is not allowed, meaning you can't get more than one coupon code discount on an individual item. You can enter multiple codes that each apply to separate items in your cart. You can also buy up to five of the same item at the promo code price in a single order, unless otherwise noted. Newegg allows coupon codes to be used once per account.

You may want to do a search on the website for a particular item as I have seen the exact same item listed at totally different prices, with discount codes, rebates, etc.
The only negative with Newegg is that if the customer receives a defective product, then the customer has to pay to ship it back to Newegg. This can be a problem with large, bulky, or heavy items that are relatively inexpensive to purchase but expensive for consumers to ship. For example, computer monitors these days are fairly cheap but if you get a defective unit or too many dead pixels, its so expensive to ship it back to Newegg. For such items, it may be better to get a price match from an online retailer that will pay for return shipping for defective products.
