Pardon me, but I’m tired of trying to purchase things online & getting shafted with a giant “2nd day” shipping charge. FedEx, UPS… doesn’t matter. Shoot, even when they charge the “ground” rates fo those guys, it ends up costing as much as the air rates. What, we’re not in the US? Hell, it’s still the same continent.
A couple of days ago I was mumbling about wanting a new photo bag. Today I finally managed to make a decision, only to be thwarted with… a $35 charge for Ground delivery (UPS). I’ve ordered bags before & they’re large – the shipping rate is usually a little higher because of that. But 1/3 the total price? Drives me nuts, when USPS will ship for far less.
So no thinktank for me, and no cash for them. It’s a deal.
