$1 pin, $5 to ship

Post by RoxiJade » 8 months ago

Now that's just silly. I feel sorry for Shawn and Kim. Flag lapel pin for $0.99, Shipping $4.99. As if we won't notice the cost has shifted from pin cost to the shipping cost. The pin isn't even worth $6.

Omgosh! How do they justify $5 shipping on something that weighs as much as a feather?

Whenever I turn to SLC and see this, I absolutely cringe with embarrassment for them.

The increase on shipping is on things that dont really make sense. The power banks are not large or heavy but the shipping charge was more. Watches cost more to ship. I dont understand the reasoning. I think they need to brainstorm how to give shipping discounts for those who buy more than one item on an auction.

They are recouping the money in shipping that they are taking off the item, I noticed this is what they are doing. They are lowering the price of the item to look like your getting a deal but then they are making back the money they discounted the item by raising the shipping so YOU ARE NOT REALLY GETTING A CLEARANCE PRICE!!!!!

I'm not watching because I'm at work, but I thought jewelry shipping was supposed to be 2.99 (?) I guess we have to watch everything now.

He has to make his million dollar bonus at the end of the year.

JMO, But SLC has gone SO far off the rails since this new management has been in charge. Everything is topsy turvy. It's hard to trust anything they say or do anymore. I feel like we are being used as a cash cow. I think they know exactly what they are doing and don't seem to care one bit. We are looked at like as dumb Americans that will swallow their shenanigans, hook, line and sinker. :x :x :x
