It's only after you click that shopping cart checkout, that they tell you it is shipped via pack mule...
<rant>Or, they say "free shipping within the continental US" (meaning every state except Hawaii), and I find out as I place the order that they meant "free shipping within the contiguous US" (meaning every state except Alaska and Hawaii), they don't offer free shipping to Alaska, so I'm expected to pay $30 shipping on a $20 purchase because UPS 2nd Day is my only option....</rant>
I've cancelled a whole lot of orders at the last minute because of inadequate shipping options... I was actually shocked to find out that Amazon's free shipping DOES include Alaska.

So Mivox, we have the same problem being in Canada only we also have customs, so a $21 purchase ($21 Canadian) also gets a customs charge of $7 minimum. So a $12 US item gets a shipping charge and a $7 customs charge. Stops me cold every time :(
