Good morning and happy new year! In 2008 I resolve to… ummmm… save more money. Also, to eat fewer cookies. (I like to pace myself.)
Did you know that many online retailers who also have brick and mortar stores offer ways for you to skip paying the shipping from online orders? I think I’ve mentioned before that if you place an online order at the store, Lane Bryant will wave the shipping fees. You can do the same at Eddie Bauer, and that will take care of that annoying handling charge they always tack on (and I think if you ship to the store, it takes care of the shipping as well). Just this morning I read that if you want something from Best Buy which is only offered online, you can go to the store and have an associate order it for you, and they’ll waive the shipping.
I still prefer just sitting at home in my pajamas, but it’s always good to know how to save a few more bucks.
