There is nothing more tempting than getting free shipping on needful (and not so needful) products! Recently a well-known New England purveyor of hard-to-find goods changed their policy from only offering free shipping in December to what appears to be “no charge” for sending stuff out all year long. This holds true as long as a minimum purchase of $65 per order is reached. So far I have taken advantage of this deal four different times within two months. Items purchased were things I didn’t really need. I did it just so I could take advantage of their offer. Ah marketing as its finest!
