for the inner geek in all of us

By 

from IN

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

There is something for everyone at thinkgeek.com The website is fairly easy to use, general tabs across the top, including my favorite, sale! If you have a fan of Star Wars, comic books, video game, gadgets or just someone who likes a laugh, this is perfect! One of my favorite finds was bacon flavored candy canes! Thinkgeek.com has so much to offer, you can spend an hour browsing and filling your cart! Shipping is reasonable ($6.95 flat fee), or free with $75 purchase. I have also gotten free shipping on any purchase at different times of the year. My orders have always been quick, and arrived as promised. There is a live chat agent available also if you need additional help on the website. Check out thinkgeek.com, you will be very glad you did!

Love, love, love it!

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

I don't think I possess the vocabulary to explain how much I love this website. It's always there for me when I need a gift for the hard-to-shop-for-friend-or-family-member.

I've gotten my dad a set of planetary glasses, where each glass looks like one of the planets (or the sun or Pluto) ... I've gotten my brother Star Trek ties and my sister Star Wars earrings. The sheer variety of gifts you can get is amazing, there really is something for everyone.

The shipping is also very reasonable (or completely free if you spend $75 ... which I normally do) and all of my items have always arrived quickly and accurately to my home.

The customer service is also great, there's usually a live agent you can chat with, who can answer all questions and solve all problems, and barring that, there's a helpful phone staff who can help you out as well.

For me, this website is a perfect 10! I would recommend it to everyone.

Fun site for Geeky Stuff

By 

from Utah

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

I enjoy shopping on this site, both for myself as well as for friends who like this kind of stuff.

Product Selection
I found some fun things related to Marvel comics and movies as well as Star Wars, but I was really hoping to find some Lord of the Rings and Hobbit memorabilia as well. This site has a fun theme going, but it could be greatly improved by expanding to include some of the most popular parts of the Geek world. I think my favorite product is the round Captain America shield rug.

Shipping and Returns
Shipping is a flat $6.95 on orders with standard shipping, and you can get free shipping on orders over $75. It would be nice if they offered a cheaper option for smaller items, because it's hard to justify spending almost $7 on shipping on an item that only cost $5 in the first place. On bigger things, the shipping is worthwhile and has led me to use this site. But there have also been times where I shopped elsewhere for that kind of $5 gift because the shipping was better elsewhere.

Great place for Nerdy gifts.

By 

from Florida

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

With Christmas fast approaching, I like a lot of people have spent a lot of time online shopping in recent weeks. I have yet again used Think Geek's awesome online store to order quite a few gifts for people on my list.

From Zombie blood energy drinks, to proton and neutron shirts, Think Geek has a great selection. They have stuff from a bunch of different television shows as well, not just nerd related treats.

They have a point based reward system which works a lot like any other loyalty program. They have one of the coolest websites too. The layout is great, and the items for sale are categorized by television show or by type.

I will continue to use the website not only to order presents but to order for myself as well.

Ease of Use
The website is easy to use, even on mobile. Which is a big plus since I use my smartphone for just about everything.

Product Selection
Great products and nice selection.

Thinkgeek is thinkgreat!

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

Thinkgeek was a website that my guy turned me on to a few years ago because he wanted an item for his birthday on the site. I was skeptical that what he was describing was just something junky, but I was wrong! This site is great with its whimsical and funny items. Just scrolling through it makes me smile. Not only are the products they source really inventive, clever, and awesomely 'geeky', the emails that the company puts out are always full of hilarious script. I also love their little monkey stickers they put in your orders!

Ease of Use
You can maneuver through the site very easily. There are several ways to get to products. You can use the search bar to search for specific items, use the product listing by type of product or click through the home page where they have featured items.

Product Selection
I always see something I have not seen anywhere else on this site. Today that is a difficult thing to do because of Facebook and other social media where people like to share fun items.

Product Pricing
I know most of the things they have a novelty items, but I think some things could be lower in price. They do have sales often and run specials to their email customers.

Customer Service
I've never had an issue to solve, but they do keep me updated on my points for their rewards program.

Shipping and Returns
I get my orders very quickly. They are packaged nicely.

This geek is in love!

By 

from Kansas

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

I had heard thinkgeek.com mentioned before but never visited the site until recently. I wish I would have visited it sooner because it is awesome! You can find any geeky item you are looking for. They have a huge selection of clothing, toys, electronics, outdoor items, and home & office products. They have a kids section that has some really cute clothing items. I ordered a LED Iron Man T-Shirt which was on sale for over half the original price! It shipped to me pretty quickly. Even if you do not order from the website, it is worth looking at due to the unique products it offers. This is a super cool website.

Ease of Use
Very simple website to navigate. You can shop by category or even interest, such as Star Wars.

Product Selection
There is a massive selection of products. There are toys, such as action figured or board games, electronics, home & office supplies, clothing, and a lot more. They even have a "geek kids" section.

Shipping and Returns
They offer free shipping on orders over $75. My order came quickly and there were no problems.

Amazing selection of gifts for anyone who loves sci fi/pop cultu

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA USA

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

Thinkgeek.com is one of my favorite sites to browse when I am looking for unique and fun gift ideas for my friends and family. I have found some items that friends still talk about receiving several years later. If you are looking for the perfect gift for your Dr. Who, Star Wars/Trek, Big Bang Theory and pretty much any sci fi or fantasy show, you will find something they will love on this site.
I love that they have a lot of fun with themselves and want the user to have fun as well. Especially fun is their annual line of April Fools products, especially when they end up making one of them into an actual product! I love my singing soft kitty and I know the gifts I've purchased (a caffeine mug, a star wars ice cube tray among others) have been very well received.

Ease of Use
It is very easy to browse the site. Things are broken up well by category and you can also use the search function.

Product Selection
There is a huge selection and variety of anythign and everything you could possibly want for your favorite geek. You will go look at one thing, see the suggested products and be sucekd in for quite some time looking at all their fun and unique products.

Product Pricing
For the most part, you will find some of the best prices for these types of items. Additionally, there are often coupons that offer additional discounts.

Customer Service
Their customer service is extremely efficient and helpful. You always receive timely and helpful responses.

Shipping and Returns
Shipping is fast (and often times you can get coupons for free shipping). Returns are fairly easy but can take some time.

Perfect for your inner geek

By 

from Columbus, OH

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

This is a fascinating site where one can find unique gifts for all the geeks in your life. Including yourself. If anyone remembers Spencer's Gifts there was always something eye catching and interesting. You will find gadgets you never knew you needed until you see them. They have funny T-shirts that my son loves. He loves the Minecraft game and can find accessories. Another favorite of ours is the Big Bang Theory merchandise. Great electronic gadgets and fun stuff for your cubicle or desk. Office prank items come on you know you want to get that person in your office, just admit it. I have been a customer here for years and find it fun to explore the site just to see what's new. There are even things for your bacon lover. You will be surprised at these offerings. Some things I would have never thought of for sure. Some items on this site will definitely bring a smile to your face.

Unbelievably cool and innovative products

By 

from Sugar Land, TX

Comments about ThinkGeek.com:

ThinkGeek sells a variety of gift and novelty items that are inspired by geeky/nerdy interests -- whether it be shirts with gamer references, never-before-seen high-tech clocks, sci-fi show inspired jewelry, or cute plush microbes -- the website has something for techie, geeky, nerdy, and gamer friends. As a woman, I appreciate that there are also products, such as tees and underwear, intended for geeky women. And for the proud geek parents, they have fun geeky kids clothing. ThinkGeek's products are a nice way to celebrate esoteric knowledge and also broadcast to people you meet that you're a fellow geek. Many of the products are also great conversation starters because they are so unusual. I return to the site again and again just to see what they'll have next. It's a testament to how inventive and unusual ThinkGeek's products are that people are easily fooled by the annual ThinkGeek April Fool's product e-mail. The tradition is to list a handful of over-the-top items, including pictures, and see how many customers click-through and attempt to purchase the item. But ThinkGeek's real products are often so fantastic and futuristic that distinguishing the joke products from the real ones is a challenge. I haven't ever experienced any problems with shopping on the site. I also love the ability to maintain a wishlist on the site and search by common types of interests (such as a particular TV show or fandom).
