Free Shipping Comparison

In our most recent ad on the back of the US Bowler, we tried to compare some of our services compared to our competitors. There has been a little confusion when it comes to the "FREE SHIPPING" comparison.

We were trying to compare our products that we list as "FREE SHIPPING" to our competitors. However, we do not list all of our products as "FREE SHIPPING". This is an offer that we only put on some products, not our entire catalog.

Only our products marked with our Free Shipping icon qualify for free ground shipping in the Continental United States.

I'm sorry for any confusion this may have caused some of our customers.

When comparing prices, please make sure to compare final price at your doorstep. In the following example, where would you purchase your Scooby Doo 2007 16# Viz-A-Ball? Prices are listed as of 5/6/2008 4:00pm EST.

Shipping charges are not always a negative in a price. Remember, somebody has to pay the shipping company (UPS/FedEx/USPS/etc...). And please notice I went with a 16 pound bowling ball for the example, I could have used a 6 or 8 pound bowling ball to make the savings look even better for us.
