Online shopping is great—until you get to the shipping and handling part. Somehow, even just $5 or $6 for shipping seems too much to handle and you empty the cart. When you’re trying to get a great deal, forking over any amount for shipping can feel like a rip-off.
Another common problem? You find yourself poking around a store’s website, looking for one more item that will push you over the edge of the free shipping minimum. But how screwed up is that? You’re actually spending more to save on shipping!
But here are stores that always offer free shipping so you can checkout in peace. Until you have to pay for the actual clothes, that is.
