Exclamation Free sandals/flip flops (not spam)


this isn't spam, and Im not affiliated in anyway. Just passing on a good deal. All you pay is shipping, just picked up a pair for myself for shipping cost (8.95).

FREE ....... all you pay is shipping.

What a load of bull crap! Are people actually that stupid to fall for that crap?????? I guess they must be because just about every info commercial is giving away a second product for just the cost of shipping.

But the kicker is: "if" the consumer doesn't buy the second unit for free I have to say the company would be making more money in selling just the one unit! The price of the first unit is based off of two units are being sold.

And I get a real kick out of (not really, but) shipping costs should be just that, shipping costs, NOT shipping plus administration fees or handling fees!

I guess people are actually stupid enough to actually think everyone else is stupid enough to not recongize that ALL business plans HAVE TO include ALL the costs associated with a product when working out a selling price! So when an item costs $3.45 to ship but the vendor charges $8.95 to ship the product, the vendor is actually double dipping the consumer for overhead that has already been accounted for in the selling price of the unit!

So in the event of get a second unit for just the cost of shipping and handling:
- the company has actually charged you for the second unit in the price of the first unit.
- the company has profited by double dipping on the administration and handling fees of the initial shipping costs.
- the company has double dipped again in charging for administration and handling fees for the second unit to be shipped out.

It's almost like buying a $6 item off of ebay, but it costs the buyer $28 shipping. And if that $6 item is being shipped over a boarder the $28 figure has now shot up to $45 or higher.
