Ditto that.

But, knowing me, I'd add more onto the order so I could justify the $8.95 S & H fee . . . I'm sick that way . . .

I agree w/Amy...if I HAD to have it I would. Otherwise nope. I'd go looking on ebay or something. I hate paying all that in shipping when it probably really only costs like $1.50!!

Probably not. Normally if I am going to order something I try and get the most for my postage as I possibly can - so I would go through the catalogue and order more stuff. I normally wait until I can order most of what I want before I place an order.

I agree, that is high but here's the thing. Some of the smaller companies use certain shipping methods like the post office. For example, if a company ships Global Priority mail to Canada from the US, that starts at 7.95. KWIM? So, I think maybe we need all the details to decide.
I hope you can find a few other things that you "need", (LOL) to justify the shipping.
Hugs to you!

I fell into that trap once. Add to the order or look elsewhere for the stamp or one similar.

Well, if it's one of my favorite stamp companies, I can enable you....shipping is free with a $150 order!

I am afraid I would do it. Reason being--I live in the middle of NOWHERE and it costs that much for me to get ANYWHERE.

I kicked myself BIG time when I took an afternoon to myself, drove to town, bought >$10 in paper and random primas, and drove home. I figured I had spent close to $20 in gas for that trip.

I will NEVER complain about shipping AGAIN!

For those of you who can stop by a Michaels or a Local Stamp or Scrap store on their way to or from somewhere--shipping at 100% is probably not worth it.

that is my take

I spent that much on shipping twice! With the same company. I ended up buying $60 in stamps each time to justify the high shipping cost! If it is the company I am thinking of shipping is free with a $150 purchase!

I wouldn't do that, but I certainly would add to my order to justify it. It always helps to invite friends to order with you when there's a shipping charge like that. Fortunately, I usually have friends willing to help out. LOL

I just checked on one website for sponge daubers. A package of 3 weighs less than 1/2 ounce, I wanted 4 packages - that's less than 2 ounces! The website stated shipping was based solely on weight. When I had the shipping calculated (US location to US location - no out-of-the-country shipping), they were going to charge me over $8 shipping. Even tho' their price on the daubers was good, I'll actually save money by paying a higher price at my LSS!

Yep, that would be me. I would order more to justify the shipping. Doesn't make sense to spend more but for some reason it works for me.

Do you have a stamping friend that might also want to order something? That way you could split the shipping. Whenever I am ordering online I ask my friends if they need anything from that company -often times they do. I figure it helps both of us.

Agreed. I also live in BFE but luckily I work in a larger area (40 miles away Gas prices suck...gonna buy a motorcycle pretty soon...or a horse!) so I have a Michael's, a Joann's (though a bad one), the Wal-Mart and Dollar Tree have stuff, and a little scrap store available for my lunch hour!

I am assuming Whipper Snapper Designs. Since shipping is kinda pricey, I wait to place an order for several stamps to offset the cost of shipping (flat rate shipping). I love ALL their stamps but I especially LOVE SweetMissDaisy's designs and am willing to pay that shipping!

No way! If this is from a company, I would definitely order more to make it worth my while! Just last night I ordered $60 worth of stuff (mostly cuttlebug folders and dies) so that I could get the "free shipping on orders over $50" deal.
