No Matter How Many I Bought, It Wouldn’t Have Been Enough
Today was a rather frustrating day as we were forced to live within the new realities of the Send the Light freight discount program. As part of their “Thrifty Thursday” program they were offering 75% discount on boxed cards. These cards were only $5.99 US to begin with, making this a great deal.
But then we realized, we didn’t have a single book in our shopping cart, and books and Bibles are now the engine that drive the free freight program. You’ve got to have 20 of them to qualify. So even if I had bought 100 boxes, I would have paid enormous freight costs.
Yesterday, we unpacked a box from them that contained two boxes of cards. “I thought you weren’t ever going to buy boxed cards from them again;” my employee reminded me. She was right, I had said that, but these two boxes actually arrived in okay condition. At least they weren’t on the bottom of the box with books on top.
So what if the entire shipment was boxed cards? Do you think they would survive the international shipping experience?? We just find that some customers are more than happy to try something other than Dayspring, which I realize dominates the boxed card selection of most of the store staff reading this.
