In case Amsteel House (Craig) doesn't get back to this today:
The code is currently good through the end of the year.
When he says most orders are $4.95 shipping, that is Priority Mail and represents most of the orders we've seen so far for a couple hundred feet of Amsteel 7/64" or less. I've had a few people stop looking once they see the UPS rate and Priority Mail is further down in the list.
With all of the new colors and lines coming out, if you put some rope in your cart and the shipping seems out of whack, please PM me or email me directly with the item and the ZIP code you were trying so I can test it. The most likely culprit is that the weight was just entered or updated incorrectly and I can at least review it.
Thank you all for your feedback. It has really helped me zero in on some issues with ultra-lightweight products in our shipping calculation that really hadn't been reviewed for years. Feel good that at least one company heard your concerns about shippping costs and made a change for the better of all customers.
Yes, I will continue to work on the flat rate boxes!
Thank you all again for the business and the feedback.
