What does Free Shipping really mean?

When you order $100 or more, your are really getting free shipping plus a 5% discount.  This happens automatically.  You don't have to do a thing.  The free shipping applies to the 48 continental United States.  The 5% discount on orders over $100 applies to all orders.

As you shop the Internet, be aware of sites that offer free shipping on individual products costing much less than $100.  Why?  Because, for example, if free shipping is offered on a product costing $30.00, chances are that the shipping is rolled into the product cost when the product cost itself was only $22.50.  It's fine to pay the $7.50 shipping on a quantity of 1 but if you select 2, 3, 4 and so on, you are paying the $7.50 shipping multiple times.
