It is a nice deal, but the shipping costs are a bit high IMHO. Not that it means much, but charging $15.00 shipping for a $40 order seems pretty steep and really defeats the purpose of a sale. Again, just my honest opinion. It made me reconsider an order today for a gift.

That's surprises us too. 10-12 is the highest that usually shows and thats for priority and heavy weight. The deal is through noon Tuesday in case you want to select different shipping options.

Thanks for the follow-up. I had thrown two of the vintage meat sets in ($39.90). Typed in the zip and got that Parcel Post was $14.09 and Priority was $17.00. :blink: Not sure if that is an estimate or actual cost. Hopefully they can negotiate a better deal with shippers in the future.

Hmmn. Thanks for the info. That many DVD's is a sizable box. And SLC def costs more than our typical eastern ship. Will look into it though. Thanks

At least the shipping isn't as bad as those old Columbia House and BMG CD/cassette catalogs that came in the mail in big sheets of stamps.

Apparently it could cost them nearly $200 to ship a couple dozen CDs all in one box. Which took 4-6 weeks to arrive.

Hard lessons learned as a kid!
