I'm pleased to announce that PCPartPicker now supports Newegg combo deals for US and Canada!
Combo deals are important when trying to find the best deals, but with thousands available finding the best savings can be tricky and time consuming. To help with this, PCPartPicker automatically searches over 3,000 combo deals to find the permutation of deals that offer the greatest overall savings for your part list.
For a given part list, there may be a hundred or more different permutations of combo deals available. PCPartPicker evaluates each permutation of deals, factoring in the effects of those deals, prices from your preferred retailers, nearby local-only deals, promotions and coupon codes, mail-in rebates, taxes, and shipping. The best combination of deals is presented and broken down part by part, with a list of which promotions and combo deals offer the largest savings.
When you choose parts, combo icons indicate which parts offer combo deals - both in general and in combination with parts you've already picked out. Part detail pages also list which available deals.
With the initial rollout for this feature, it is currently limited to Newegg.com and Newegg.ca combo deals of only two items. Once I have a better idea of the extra load this will add on the server, I intend to support deals with three or more parts.
