Why Insight?

Purchasing Power

Insight has direct access to over $1 billion in inventory from 1,000+ manufacturers, like IBM, HP, Toshiba, Cisco, and Microsoft, to name a few. Purchasing power means better prices and availability for you.

Flexible Credit Options

Insight is making available tens of millions of dollars in open credit lines to qualified businesses. Ask your sales associate about our many credit options.

Quick Delivery of Leading Brands

Insight combines advanced information systems and a strong relationship with Federal Express to provide you with quick access and delivery.

Our distribution capabilities span the country, making the products you need available faster. Insight has access to over 20 company-owned, manufacturer and distributor warehouses with hundreds of thousands of computing products. Our fast and customer-friendly electronic data interchange (EDI) gives you visibility to billions of dollars of inventory every day. When you place an order, our EDI system identifies the appropriate product and often will 'drop ship' it directly from one of our manufacturer or distributor warehouses. This ensures that you receive products quickly and helps to keep our cost of doing business very low.

Insight's integration and configuration center exists to offer more of a total system solution to our corporate customers. Pre-certified third party and proprietary products can be integrated and tested thereby providing easy and more cost efficient installation at the end user site.

  • Installation and testing of hardware peripherals into notebooks, desktops, and servers.
  • Installation and configuration of proprietary and commercially published software images.

Volume Pricing (VPA)

If your organization has budgeted over $100,000 for annual computer purchases and would like on-line access to pricing that rewards your buying behavior, please e-mail your dedicated Sales executive or call 1-800-INSIGHT (1-800-467-4448).

Insight occasionally encounters manufacturer's specials that are subject to certain restrictions over which Insight has no control. Insight reserves the right to exclude certain special offers from your VPA. Insight may also offer aggressively priced specials to its entire customer base; due to the extremely low prices of such offers, VPA discounted pricing may not apply to these specials.

Volume Pricing Agreements (VPAs) make it easy for corporations to conduct business with Insight. Based on purchasing volumes, corporate customers and Insight agree on a cost plus pricing structure per product category. The agreed upon pricing is then entered into Insight's proprietary information system. Once the customer's specialized pricing is established within Insight's system, sales executives and authorized corporate users have instant access to it.

  • The VPA allows more time to be spent on strategic issues with customers because quoting product is instantaneous.
  • If pricing needs to be negotiated further, Insight's system is flexible enough to allow for manual overrides.
  • VPA and special pricing agreements through manufacturers can be accessed by all locations via Your "My Insight" page.

When I search for products by keyword sometimes I get completely unrelated results.

Results for a keyword search are, by default, ordered by "Best Match" to prominently show the products that have the most relevance for an entered keyword. Sometimes keywords are ambiguous, or are relevant across multiple categories, leading the results to appear unrelated, when they are the most relevant for the keyword entered. Since results can be cross-category – meaning they consist of products from a number of different categories – products related by category, or other criteria, can be easily selected and displayed by clicking on a narrowing option.

I clicked on an option to narrow my result and now I don't have any options left.

You will only see options if your results can be further narrowed. As you make selections to narrow the results, the "Narrow By" options change and may be reduced depending upon the type of product selected and the number of products available for a given option. You can remove any of the options by clicking the red "x" next to the option, to re-filter the results and receive additional narrowing options.

How can I change an option after I have selected it?

Changing an option is as easy as clicking on the red "x" next to the option in the "Bread Crumb Trail" (the hyperlinked trail in the upper portion of the search result) and selecting a different option in the left hand column.


How do I compare products?

Insight.com allows you to compare products in two different ways. You can set up your own custom comparison list or let us do the work for you and use our "compare similar" feature.

Your Custom Comparison List: You can reach your custom comparison list by clicking on the Product Compare link in the footer. Additionally, you can add items to this list from any search results page using the checkbox to the left of each product. Once boxes have been checked, click the "add to compare list" link or for a quick comparison, click the "compare selected items" link.

Compare Similar: From the product search results page or product details page, you can select the "compare similar" link. The system will return the most similar products available online for you to begin your comparison.

Where do I get rebate forms?

Insight offers both instant and mail-rebates. You can see a listing of all the products with rebates by visiting the rebates page. Choose a product by clicking the product name and look for rebate information in the rebate tab.

What is a shopping cart?

A shopping cart is a term for the items a customer chooses to buy and is stored until the payment transaction is completed. Just like tangible shopping carts, you the customer have the ability to add, retrieve, and remove items from your shopping cart.

How do I add items to my shopping cart?

Can I save my cart, and for how long will it be saved?

Yes. Shopping carts can be saved under your account information. From your shopping cart, choose the "Manage Carts" link from the Order Utilities drop down. From the Manage Carts page you can save the current cart or load, view or delete a saved cart. Carts will be saved until you delete them.

Will the items I placed in my shopping cart be priced the same if I retrieve the cart at a later date?

Due to special prices, sales, and promotions, the items you saved in your shopping cart will not necessarily remain the same price if you retrieve the cart at a later date. However, you will see what the current prices of your items are when you retrieve your Saved Cart.

What is Quick Shop?

Quick Shop allows you to quickly and easily purchase a product. On the shopping cart page, simply enter the product number and the quantity you want in the Quick Shop box, then click Add.

Shipping Information

How can I find out what my exact shipping charges will be?

You can add an item to your cart and view the method you wish to use (FedEx, UPS) to see what the estimated charge will be. Shipping charges may vary based on time of purchase and warehouse sourced. (When you place an order, our EDI system identifies the appropriate product and often will 'drop ship' it directly from one of our manufacturer or distributor warehouses. This ensures that you receive products quickly and helps to reduce shipping costs.) Both FedEx and UPS offer at least 3 different methods of shipping and each has a different charge. After you convert your cart into an order and enter the exact shipping destination, exact shipping costs will be calculated and displayed.

You can also take advantage of our Shipping Cost Estimator during checkout.

How do I use the Shipping Estimator?

Simply type in your destination's zip code, click estimate and the site will return an estimated shipping charge.

What are the standard delivery times for FedEx and UPS?

FedEx shipments have three different delivery times for shipment:

  1. FedEx 2-Day Standard Air: Delivery in 2 business days
  2. FedEx Standard Overnight: Next business day by 4:30pm (Business). Residence delivery by 7:00pm
  3. FedEx Priority: Next day by 10:30am

FedEx Standard Overnight is not available in all zip codes. If this impacts you, we will ship and bill you for FedEx 2day, and notify you by email.

UPS shipments have three different times for shipment:

  1. UPS Ground: Delivery in 3-5 business days
  2. UPS Blue: Delivery in 2 business days
  3. UPS Red: Delivery in 1 business day

When will my order ship (assuming the product is in stock)?

Some orders placed after 2:00pm MST may not ship same day.

Web orders placed on Saturday, Sunday, and holidays will not be processed until the next business day.

Customer Quoted Ship Date: Once you have entered the appropriate information, the expected ship date will be listed under your order number. This date is calculated using the time we expect to receive the product (if not currently in stock) and the appropriate time it takes to pack your product and ship it.

Note: Federal Express does not deliver on Sundays and holidays, and does not offer Saturday delivery for every city in the United States. Call 1-800-GO FEDEX (1-800-463-3339) for more information on shipping questions.

Will my order be delivered on weekends or holidays or will it be delivered during the week?

Shipments are delivered Monday through Friday. They are not delivered on weekends or holidays. The required number of days for delivery is the number of business days plus processing time. We do offer limited Saturday delivery service. This service is not available for all products, from all shipping warehouses, or for all delivery locations. There is no online option for setting a shipment for Saturday delivery. In order to check on the availability of Saturday delivery for your desired product, please call us at 1-800-INSIGHT (1-800-467-4448).

Because Insight cares about the security of your shipment, we have instructed our delivery agents not to leave packages at the customer location without a signature. You may choose to have your order delivered to an alternate location, such as your office, if you will not be home to receive it.

Why did my product ship with a different carrier than the one I selected online?

Changes to your selected shipping carrier can occur for various reasons including manufacturer restriction, federal compliance, weight limitation and/or dollar value orders. If this has occurred, please call 1-800-INSIGHT (1-800-467-4448) or email your sales executive and we will work to correct the situation.

Can ship to APO/FPO addresses?

What are the definitions for the "Order Status Messages"?
