Well, Midway has decided that Alaska is no longer a place to do business.
Until this month, you could place an order and use USPS shipping. This is no longer an option. At some companies, if you call and speak to a real person, you can still get USPS shipping. Not at Midway. I just tried to order two items, totaling $200. They wanted about $50 in UPS shipping. USPS would have cost probably $15-20 max. Called their customer service hotline, no go on USPS option anymore.
Too bad. I've been a customer for 25 years. Glad Cabelas is now in town.
