    Just Ordered

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    A shirt and shorts from performance, the tax and shipping were $10 I can't believe they want to charge $8.00 for shipping, I told them to just sent the shirt, I just bought a pair of descente shorts this past w/e so don't need them right now.

    I ship stuff from work via UPS and don't pay that much.

    You might want to see if you can find what you want at the TE site - I just checked, and their current shipping prices (via USPS priority mail) is $4.95 for orders under $150, and $6.95 for orders of $150 or greater. I think that is pretty reasonable.

    I wonder if Performance is cutting prices on stuff and then making up for it by padding the shipping costs... Just out of curiosity I just checked Performances shipping rates, listed here. Their regular shipping ranges from $5 for orders of $1 - $18, to $10.75 for orders over $150 - and that is for ground (as in slow) shipping. If I compare my last TE shipment, at $4.95 for priority mail (which got to me in 2 days) - if I'd ordered the same stuff from Performance, I would have had to pay $8 for slow shipping or $11 for 2nd day. That's quite a difference.

    I wonder if they charged you the correct amount for shipping ground (looks like $6.50) plus charged you sales tax. Since they have a store in Virginia (at least that's where your profile indicates that you are) they probably did charge sales tax.

    Jersey: $19.98
    Shipping: $8.00
    Tax: 5%
    Colour: Priceless

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"
