Topic: Careful With Your Online Musical Purchases That Offer Free Shipping
in another topic, I mentioned getting the Markley pickup for Amy''s guitar and the pickup being too wide.
Okay so today I (having obtained an authorization first) packed it up, took it to the USPS and sent it off. Cost $7.99.
When I called this company's customer service person, I was given to understand that they would now refund my cost MINUS $5.99 to offset their "free" shipping.
"Okay", I thought to myself. "I should have measured first, so this is my fault."
But then I had an epiphany: "What about that $7.99 you just spent on shipping, Bill? Are you gonna have to eat that?"
Yup. I'm gonna have to eat that, and THEY get to keep the $5.99.
Bottom line: I lost $7.00. Right?
