It really makes me laugh when people think they are getting "free shipping." Seriously, do any of you think that your shipping is free? Brown just decided that you need a little money more than he does. I mean, don't you think that just m a y b e the cost is included in the price you pay and if you get something called free, that the other guy didn't get for free, then that means that he helped pay your cost of shipping, but it still isn't FREE.
The idea is to compete with, or to be like the brick stores that we can order from on line, and take FREE delivery at our neighborhood store. Now that is something that I do all the time and it really is free. Such items are simply taken from the warehouse and trucked to my store with their normal shipments. Everybody gains from it because it reduces the local inventory for low volume items but it still gets the consumer in the store. I would do the same with Amazon dot com if I trusted them a little more.
It is a separate subject - but I'm not a fan of Amazon because I have had really bad luck with them (2 of 3 purchases were never received) and have had NO support or service from them. But never mind my crying, the idea is a great one.
