Why I Don't Like Amazon. By Geniusofdespair
I ordered a friggin' tube of toothpaste that weighed .60 pounds. They sent it in a big box (that could have fit about 15 tubes) and charged me $5.17 for delivery. I could have gotten it much cheaper with free shipping from vendors NOT on Amazon. If I didn't have a gift certificate to use up, I would never shop on Amazon: EVER. Their shipping costs on both items I bought were excessive. Hey Amazon, send me back the $5 I have been over-charged on the two items I ordered and I will take this post down. I don't know how they compute shipping over there on Amazon's site but it is almost always higher on Amazon listed products - maybe that is how they get you: They lure you in with cheap stuff and then clobber you with shipping charges. I would rather just go to a store, it is faster and cheaper. Ordering by mail sucks.
