How about guestimating that a valid coupon would actually work?

Maybe I should drop it huh? :(

The Estimated shipping is always off. For me its like this:

Comiquette: Est = 9.99, Actual = $17
Bust: Est: $15 Actual= $47
etc

I'm not sure if the estimated shipping takes into account. Is it only by size or weight or something? Or are they just throwing darts at a board. :emperor

I guess I'm lucky since most of the time the actual shipping for me is less than what they quote.

I'm not sure I would go that far. I work for an occ med company and we have not received our shipments yet and so far only the high risk people can get them.

If by "high risk", you mean the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team, than yes I would agree:lol. This is a very touchy subject so I won't get political, but I work in the pharmaceutical industry and Canada's response has been less than stellar. Bureaucracy at its best really.

No, but CA sales tax is pretty damn close to customs fees.

I always plan on the actual shipping price to be double of what SSC tells me.

well, the Flames got it as well, and at least they may have a hope of doing something that resembles playing hockey.....


anyhow...I always plan to pay at least 1/4 of the cost of whatever I order in shipping if it's large, and 1/2 if it's smaller like a 12". Usually I'm pretty close.

Sideshow overcharges for shipping on preauthorizations though, which is when it really counts. The estimate is generic for everyone I think when you order, but you're preauthorized for your purchase based on your location and always more than your actual total will be. That's why they preauth, they make sure you have more than enough money in your account before charging, and unless you spend between the preauth and the actual charge at shipping time you'll be fine.

shipping is always higher than what is originally estimated. The first time I received a statue that was way off in the shipping was for The Thing Exclusive. I was not prepared for how big it was.
