Announces Launch of Customer Choice Awards

Dec 13, 2006 Press Release

Customer Selected Products Will Vie for Top Honors as Product of the Year

City of Industry, Calif - A leading online computer, consumer electronics, and communications product superstore based in California, announced today the winners of its first "Customer Choice" awards.

Created with the goal of highlighting five products each month with the highest customer satisfaction within their product category, the awards are an opportunity to spotlight the top items customers are buying.

"We are very proud to be launching the Customer Choice awards program," said Chad Chen, Newegg's VP of Marketing. "With results based on product satisfaction surveys from recent purchases, the customer-focused approach creates a more even playing field for all products since the importance is placed on overall satisfaction and not popularity or price being the main factor."

The competition is currently open only to products within the top five (5) major categories, which include CPUs, LCD Monitors, System Memory, Hard Drives, and Optical Disc Drives. Additional categories are planned over the next few months.

Monthly winners will qualify for the "Product of the Year." Items are selected for award consideration once they have hit a specified sales number. Customers who have purchased the qualified products are emailed a survey 10 days after purchase, and product winners are selected based on the total amount of survey responses received for that month.
