Default Accuquilt Shipping Shock!

I need some mats for my Accuquilt. They have a 35% off sale, so the cost is $39. Shipping is $13!! Free shipping is for NET amounts of $150 and over. That's over $400 in merchandise, right?! WOW!

I am not exactly following your math. But, I usually try and get enough stuff so I get free shipping. I usually order extra mats to do that or a "want" not a need die. As I stocked up on mats during the holiday sale, I have two extra of every mat I use so I am good for now. Someday, I think I may like the electric GO but my regular GO is working just fine for now.

I love my AccuQuilt and use itall the time. That said even with the discounts the shipping does certainly have to be taken into account. Our local quilt shop does carry some AccuQuilt dyes and accessories so I do try to shop there as often as possible. Apparently AccuQuilt is not the best company for retailers to deal with. They donít give discounts to the retailers that they can then pass on to customers. That makes it difficult but still if I can I shop local. Or wait for free shipping on deals.
It is true that shipping has certainly affected many companies. Some pass it on in the actual cost of the item others add it as shipping either way they canít absorb the shipping costs all the time I guess.

Yes, math is not my strong suit. So, if you have to have a net amount of $150 dollars to get free shipping, and everything is 35% off, wouldn't the before discount amount you spend have to be over $400?

Yes, I knew that shipping costs are going up all over, this was just a shock as I think it's double from what I paid last year. I buy as often as I can from Amazon and always only with free shipping. I have the GO! BIG and love it, too and don't really need any more dies as I have 3 or 4 I haven't even used yet. Mats are something you have to replace periodically, as you know, and the two I'm buying I need now.

umm... 150 Divided by .65 = 230.7 So I think it is about $231 at 35% off.
At 35% off, you are paying 65% of the original cost.

Thanks for the tip! I checked it out and it would have cost me $1.17 more at Quilt in a Day, even with free shipping. I will definitely keep that in mind for the future!

Gee, I wasn't too far off! 🤪 I was not lying when I said math is not my friend! Thank you!

I only buy from that site when they offer free shipping. I like Quilt in a Day, also eBay and Amazon.
