It takes me two or three times to remember why I begin the order processing at Spike's but then cancel the order:
Why the predatory pricing on shipping? Anchorage has both a FedEx and UPS hub. Most orders placed with other companies have UPS or FedEx shipping that is in line with other states. I'd love to purchase the tool from Spike's (as I also tried with PMags and a .22 upper), but the shipping is not expensive, it's way out of line. It's becoming common knowledge among Alaskans that we're getting taxed simply for placing an order and living up here.
Seriously, throw that part in a USPS Priority Flat Rate box and ship it out for less than half of UPS Ground. I don't quibble on EBRs, parts and equipment prices, but when shipping is this far out of line I have to ask, "Why?"
