Just how expensive IS the shipping for 2 peas if you live in the US?

Too expensive, but the priority option is way better than waiting forever for the other option.
I recommend getting the insurance on your package--the terms recently changed so if something isn't right it might not be covered.

Well, I just placed an order for $68.00 and the shipping would have been 11.45 but I used the free shipping code and it only cost me $1.65 for priority shipping.

So you would have to place a large order to make it worth the while basically?

I wanted to order about $20 worth of paper and the shipping came to $11.97. I just can't seem to do it. If I want it badly enough I will keep it in my cart until I have the $50 for free shipping.

Thanks for the info. I've been wondering.
I never bothered with my cricut 'rewards' because I had heard the shipping was high for that. Then of course, the point requirements for stuff went up and that just made it worse!

Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

I only hit buy if I make the free shipping so I think I paid $4 or so for priority and it arrived today. I ordered Sunday night!

I also always wait until I can use a free shipping code, unless there is a really great discount code that works out to be more than the cost of shipping.

That's exactly what I do. I just can't make myself pay for shipping.

I need to keep a lookout for the discount codes. I always forget to check my email before ordering.

It's not worth it for me unless I hit the $50 mark for free shipping...which has been twice in the last month, but before that was last May!

I, too, wait until I hit $50 so I can get free shipping. Well, it's $0.14 for priority mail and $0.85 for insurance so $0.99. I live pretty close to 2Peas though so my shipping may be cheaper.

I keep my cart going until I hit $50 for free shipping. Sometimes they sell out if stuff before I can buy it so then it goes on my wish list so I don't forget I want it.

My order I just recieved last Friday cost $7.97 i think...for $115.00 order...I pulled the trigger on the 75% off MME All is Bright...got quite a bit incl embellies...and other sale stuff...so I didn't qualify for free shipping. From my experience, the places that offer free shipping over a certain amount....it is just that....by total order...incl sale items. But as I said...the MME got me this time..lol

I just keep adding to my cart until I hit the $50 limit and then its free. I wouldn't mind paying a little bit, because my nearest store that carried new stuff is either an hour away, or 10 minutes (and store has a bunch of altered art stuff I don't care for).

Its worth it if you spend $50 I can't justify spending $10 or less... that just doesn't make sense with shipping

Yep I wait until I get to 50 or order from a place with cheaper shipping if it is for a small item. I love the free shipping option. Miss the free priority days though- hate the new way (not new anymore).

I keep a cart going until I have enough for free shipping. Even on big orders I split with a friend, the shipping has never been more than $10 to Texas for me.

Last order was $93 (about $52 in new stuff, the rest clearance), and included an OA full kit, a large pack of page protectors, a couple 6x6 pads, some stamp sets, loose paper and embellies, and some inkers. Shipping would have been about $8 to TX. Ordered Jan 25 and got it Feb 2 with the the free Surepost option.

Well, shipping in the US did just go up, so I would expect the prices for shipping on here to be more too. I have only placed a few orders here since I'm new, but didn't think the shipping was bad, though I did place fairly "large" orders both times. Take advantage of the promos, it helps!

I have 3 items in my cart right now. . .2 pieces of paper and a roll of washi tape. Total order of $6.30 and the shipping is $6 something. I don't understand that! Is shipping based on weight or just that anything you order shipping starts at this dollar amount and then goes up? I really don't get it. Don't you think people would purchase more if the shipping wasn't as high? Don't you think that would be better for their business?
