EZ Up Bait & Switch: A Mini Rant

 SHIPPING METHOD

FedEx

Do you see a "free shipping" option there? No, neither do I. I wasn't a math major but pretty sure all those numbers are higher than zero. Those are the only shipping options on the page.

I'm kind of irritated right this second, because I'm trying to purchase an EZ-Up canopy, and the website offers free shipping on all orders over $99. My order is well over $99! But when you get to the checkout page, it's like they forgot they ever mentioned free shipping. What the hell?

If they really had never mentioned free shipping, I probably would just wince and pay it. But as it is, I feel tricked, and I balked. I called, but no one's home on the weekends.

Come on, EZ Up, this is bullshit. If you advertise free shipping, you have to actually make free shipping available. Get your act together.

ETA: Screw it, I just went & bought one on Amazon. It's not my favorite place to shop, but when Amazon says the shipping is free, the shipping is by-God free. The tent - same model, new- was also, cheaper by $18.
