Thread: CheaperThenDirt shipping

  1. #1

    Default CheaperThenDirt shipping

    I had a rude awakening recently. I know some vendors jack up their shipping but last week I decided to get a couple items from CheaperThenDirt on a friend's recommendation. I found the several small items I wanted, but when I checked out, I found that they only ship via UPS or Fedex top shipping, like 2nd Day and Overnight, which is really expensive. When I called them about it, I got some run-around about how if they went a less expensive way like parcel post or Priority(?) it could take up to a month! I couldn't believe the B.S. this guy was putting out. I, uh, diplomatically explained to him the cr*p he was slinging didn't reach it's target, then bid him a fond fairwell. Luckily there are many better places to deal with online.

    I recently had a company quote me 3000.00 to ship 5 small boxes of bullnose tile overnight express. I asked them if they could do it a little cheaper since it was only 195.00 worth of tile. Then I was qoted 1500.00 for 2 day air.

    I hung up!!

    Best one I've heard when I wanted it quick was, "But UPS doesn't go to AK sir."
    The emphasis is on accuracy, not power!

    "Way to go".
    If they won't ship U.S. Mail, I let'em keep it. End of story.
