Online shopping sprees. [Jun. 12th, 2007|12:22 am]

Grrr... I actually wanted to buy things from ThinkGeek except there's this trifling little matter of shipping. We're talking about $20 for basic shipping. While I'd be likely to order a lot, I'd not be tempted to do it at those sorts of shipping rates.

As a result, they've already lost one sale from me... and I have to admit, I'm more likely to look at their site for ideas and source from elsewhere, because I'm sure I could get cheap caffeine products from elsewhere (like Amazon Gourmet - which I find to be a somewhat disturbing site, but I think I'd trust them slightly more).

Which reminds me, must get this badge (not safe for work) at some stage.

Right, so. I'll be out at the beginning of August. So if you want to order things and have them shipped to me for personal delivery at Dominion or the like...poke me in email ;)

The other thing about ThinkGeek is you may be stung for customs. As far as I know it's cause they use a courier company. If it's sent in the post I don't think you have to pay customs.
