Wasn’t sure where to post this, or even if it would be appreciated, but this sounded like the best place.
Not sure how many of you deal with Rockler. I find they are high on some things regularly but they do get some good sales going and have some things at as good a price as anywhere. Service has been excellant and fast shipping so far. Big con though is their shipping charge. Well, if you get on their computers good side, you may get lots of free shipping offers. From what i’ve heard not everyone gets the same offers from Rockler. Some may get one offer, and others another. Their computer seems to spot our behaviors.
First off, If you don’t have a free ship offer from Rockler, check thru Amazon, often you can buy from Rockler thru amazon and get free shipping when you can’t directly. The 2nd trick I’ve learned is if they have something you need, put it in your cart, and than leave it there for awhile. It drives their computer nuts. You have to have a account with them of course, or you can’t do that, but if you do the computer will go nuts spamming you trying to get you to buy that thing. After about a day and a half and 3 or 4 spams it will probably send you a free ship code.
Hope that helps someone out there.
And FYI, free ship always demands at least a $25 order. Not hard to do for us guys.
