Offer better shipping prices on clearance items.

Please see the attached image. Best Buy has some killer deals on PC games for 99 cents. These are some great games! But when I put them in my cart, those shipping prices are outrageous for "clearance items" 

 

Perhaps there should be better pricing on value shipping. By the time I put both of those games in my cart I am paying $6 extra (for shipping) for two games that cost 99 cents. It's hardly a bargain.

Thanks for the feedback, and I get where you are coming from on this. Unfortunately our shipping charges are not based on the price of the item being purchased, but instead on how much it costs us to ship them via UPS.

I think the idea is sound but as a business owner I have to strongly avert my eyes.  Shipping is a servcie and you cannot discount it. You cannot return it.

 

The price of $2.99 is very fair price for shipping.  So you sell a game at 99 cents and discount the shipping.  Well your operating a net loss.

 

Where I get my undies in a bunch is when you order something from a store and they charge shipping per item as if the item is shipping by itself.  Best Buy does not do that.  

 

I will say Best Buy has very good shipping terms.   A lot my items get shipped free.  But there really is no such thing as free shipping.  The shipped discount is coming of the profit.
