Here's another good example; Keys Critters sells most of the same items we do and for less. However, they have a minimum order of $100.00, a $15.00 packing/box charge and they charge the actual FedEx standard overnight shipping. If you don't want to spend over $100.00 and pay a packaging fee and want to save a little on shipping, give us a try.
Please note that most of these companies charge box charges and even though they state "no hidden fees" some of them have excessive fees and charges. Some of these sites do have cheaper shipping rates, but their prices are higher on items. I had even noticed some have minimum order amounts. We welcome small orders, large orders and we charge fair shipping charges and very reasonable item prices.
Please do take advantage of the sites offering free shipping on large orders. With fuel and shipping charges going up, they will be making less money. They will either have to raise prices, charge shipping, or go out of business.
