I hate JC Whitney!!

I just ordered a auto scanner from JC Whitney and it took like a half hour because the dang girl was trying to sell me on all this other stuff! I just want what I ordered please! Then when I think I am done she starts telling me about the (free) catalogs they want to (give) me for being such a wonderful customer. Yeah I made the mistake of taking them up on that offer one time and all the (free) magazines started charging my credit card without telling me. Also why does it cost $15 to ship a lil scanner that weighs a few oz.s? Plus it is going to take 7 to 10 business days to get here! I always tell myself after a order from JC. that I will never do that again, But I always do. Its like a Walmart relationship.
I feel better now.

Computer shopping is pretty safe anymore. Besides that, if someone wants your credit info they will get it. Your probably safer doing it online than going to your local store and having your card scanned. Everytime you do that at the store, how many people has been behind you when you punched in your PIN. While you were holding your card has anyone ever been behind you on the phone? Maybe a camera phone to snap a pic of your card?

people can listen in on phone signals. So long as you have a good anti-spy and virus filters (run a scan before buying) for the compy and the seller has a good reputation, I'd go for it.

Not a problem yet besides a micrometer somewhere between ebay and me. Paid $15 for it and it's lost in the mail system according to the P.O.

I used to look at the JC Whitney magazines when I had a 63 econoline, let's just say I found them to be a "universal fit" company, but that was years upon years ago. As for the online ordering, that's where I do most of my shopping, mainly due to time constrictions and ease of use. As long as they have encryption on their website (notice a locked padlock at the bottom right of the screen). Most websites use 128 bit encryption, which are damn near impossible to hack. A couple years ago I was part of a team that protected our AF base's network, it is pretty safe out there, just as long as you keep your system up to date on virus definitions and spyware/adware along with a descent firewall, not the automotive kind

The wife tells me that you'll see "https" in the address of secure sites. I guess the "s" is for "secure"?

That free shipping thing was not on my now catalog. Too bad. I know online ordering is pretty safe these days. I just need to get in the habit of doing it I guess. Then I wont have to deal with the dumby people. http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...003519/c-10101
This is an auto scanner. On the web site it is $45 dollars more and no free infrared thermometer! What the heck?
