*For the second year in a row, we made the Inc. 500|5000 List (#721) as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America! We are so proud of the hard work we’ve done, and we’re looking forward to continuing this growth in the future. Of course, a huge “thank you” is due to all of our amazing customers. You guys are truly the best!
*The maximum number of business days it will take for an order of circuit boards from ShopJimmy to arrive at your doorstep for FREE!
That’s right, folks, we’re now shipping every domestic order of circuit boards — regardless of order total or location — free 2-day delivery. It’s all part of our ultimate commitment to be your #1 TV parts supplier and make you happy!
If you’re within two days ground shipping from Minneapolis, MN, we’ll ground ship your order for free. If you’re outside of that area (we’re lookin’ at you, East and West Coasters!), we’ll ship your ShopJimmy order 2-day delivery for free.
Unfortunately, we can’t ship our refurbished TVs free 2-day or ground. We will, however, ship other products — such as our universal TV stands — free ground!
Easy enough? Or as Jimmy says, “Cool? Cool.”

2. Friend us on Facebook. We’ve been known to post Facebook-only discounts.

4. Join NESDA. WE offer 15% off and free shipping on orders over $75 to all NESDA Members!
*The amount of trash, in tons, that we dumped in March 2010. We thought that was just way too much trash. Since we started a major recycling push in August 2010 (in conjunction with our pursuit of ISO 14001 Certification), we now dispose less than four tons of trash each month!
