I've been a happy Midway customer for over four years until today. I noticed something peculiar while concluding an order that's left me reluctant to overreact because of the reputation of the retailer but irritated nonetheless. I originally went online to order three things: a bore brush, a replacement aperture ring for AR15 rear sight, and a cleaning rod. I then noticed that M-USA is having a promotion of $15 off when ordering $100 worth of merchandise. So I added two other items to meet the threshold: a weapon bag for carbine and a hat. Cool, my total is 100.45, but then it happened. When I added in shipping, the total skyrocketed to $133. Whoa. $32 and change is a lot of money to send a cleaning rod, brush, cap, aperture, and a bag to GA, the one in the United States. Thinking it had to be some kind of error, I began to remove and replace each item. What I found is the subject of this thread. The shipping cost for the four items less the bag was 8.32 or something. Still a bit steep for UPS ground since all this stuff could fit in a mailing envelope, but I can live with that. The shipping cost for the bag alone is 12 same method of transport. But when I put the bag and the other small items together in one order, the shipping fee jumps to over 32 USD. So, I'm left with two options: to put the order in two parts and save twelve bucks in shipping but miss out on fifteen dollar promotion that I originally attempted to realize or to put it all together and overpay in shipping by twelve to get fifteen off of my order total. What's up with that? Does that seem to be a bit unethical to any one else to recoup the cost of the "promotion" by adding the discount offered to the customer to the shipping charge?
