I know everyone has different amounts of disposable income, but I'm curious on how much your typical order costs. Mine is somewhere between 30-55. What is the line amount that you just won't cross? I have never made a purchase over $60.

I hate paying for shipping, and a few sale items always make it into my cart that don't count towards free shipping, so I'd say around $60. Because I am buying more at once I try to only place orders every couple of months or even less than that.

Always enough to get free shipping. So usually over $50.

Ditto on the free shipping. Usually between 50-60.
I splurged around Christmas and spent $200.

Since I have to pay international shipping and don't get a free shipping option, my orders have to be worth the hefty cost of getting it to me so between $50-$60 USD. I also try to limit myself to placing an order maximum every other month.

Always $50+ because I refuse to pay for shipping. Typically it's around $70, but I make them very rarely.

Minimum $50 and sometimes over $200. Just depends on what I'm wanting and how much extra money I have at the time. I'd say $50-$100 is the norm about once a month.

Usually between $50 and $60. I've done a few bigger than that, but usually I'm just adding things to get to free shipping and then I'm done.

Usually between $60 and $90, about 4-5 times a year. I did splurge at Christmas though and went quite a bit over that, but that was to save DH the hassle of shopping.

I always go for free shipping, I refuse to pay it, would rather save up in my cart and get more product then wasting it on shipping I usually do 2-4 orders a year here, typically $60 each. I think I got free shipping once on a $30 or $35 order but those seem rare. I buy a lot from big box stores and go for sales and coupons. Plus, I have to see things before I buy....sometimes I go to A's to look but come back here to buy since A's has such a high mark up on the things I usually get.

I always go for the free shipping too so my orders probably average around $60 to $70 depending on where I'm ordering from.

Usually around $50, but it is only every 3-4 months. If they included sale items in the free shipping I would be tempted to order more.

I have only placed two order, just started ordering from here. One I think in December for about 120, then in March for 90. Was tempted with this last sale, but couldn't justify it!

During the previous loyalty program, it was probably about $150. With the new program, I just spent under $40. I used the 20 percent off coupon and it was the first time I had ordered since January.

Mine is about the same as yours. About $30-$60. Lately I haven't liked paying for shipping so I try to at least hit the $50 range now if I can

I'd say around $60 so that I can get the free shipping. I only order 2 or 3 times a year though.

Another international shopper here, so my orders average about $150 but only 2/3 times per year. Then it's usually with a sale or coupon for a % off. The international shipping on a $150 order is usually about $35, so it has to be worth it or something I NEED that isn't available locally.

I had a pretty large amount in my cart and was wanting to order last weekend but never got a coupon code.

So, ill go to the two or three LSSs near me and the big box stores pick up the things I wanted.

So I don't have a typical order. It was going yo be the first time I ordered in years.
Oh well.
The stores near me will be happy to take my cash and ill get frequent buyer points and bd able to use coupons

Mine is somewhere between 30-55

I would say mine is close to that....perhaps between 25.00 & 55.00.

I feel like an order under 20.00 is almost not worth it once shipping gets tacked on.

But $25 gets me free shipping at Amazon, and $50 typically does the trick at many actual scrappy sites, so that fixes the shipping issue.

Occasionally if I need just one little thing from a line and I am having trouble finding it I will look on ebay, and then I will pay a smaller amount since I am "splurging" on buying just one item and having it shipped.

That has to be something I really want and really can't find anymore, though.

Over $50 (for free shipping), up to about $200 if there is a sale or a lot that I want.

Pretty much always $50-60 to get shipping discount, and under $60 to avoid border fees.

I'm not buying here often for many reasons but as an international shopper, larger orders tend to be more worthwhile depending on shipping. Several companies give free or flat rate shipping over a given amount so usually my orders are $200-$300 but I have spend a lot more than that especially when heavier items are included in a free shipping order.

We can't get a lot of the same things here and prices are generally at least double what is charged in the US so even with expensive shipping, it works out cheaper

I usually try for free shipping, so about $60. However, if they're having a special sale, like the 20% off recently, and I can't combine that with free shipping, it's about $30-40. Probably doesn't make sense, but if I can get free shipping, I wait for that amount. If I can't, I'll just order what I really want.

My average is $100, I haven't ever gone above $166. The average is better than I thought it would be, I had a couple of smaller orders in there.

I do have a few strictly digital carts, those are always very cheap because it's something that I needed for an immediate project usually. I didn't add those to the above.

I don't have a ceiling as much as a minimum. I refuse to pay shipping charges whenever possible, so I keep adding to my cart till my order is $50.

I went nuts at Archiver's when visiting and spent $172, that's a ton for me. Online, usually enough to get free shipping, whatever that might be. $100 is about my limit though, unless it's stuff I really need (like Copic refills). If it's just "this might be fun" stuff I can usually convince myself to remove it from the cart.

When I'm actually scrapbooking (like for the past 6 months), $50-100. When I'm not scrapbooking, I don't really buy anything. I don't do any shopping at physical stores though since I live in India.

Another one who always goes for free shipping. My orders range from 50 on up. I think my biggest order was a couple hundred, but that was after a long break from scrapbooking. Usuallly it's 50 to 100.
