[B]Just wanted to pass along a way to reduce shipping charges on orders placed with Tweetys, who sponsors our site. Roger Thweatt of Tweetys responded to my inquiry about very high shipping charges. He says that 90% of their items are drop shipped from the manufacturers, who ship ONLY
by UPS or FEDEX, both of which charge high rates. However, if you call
in your order to Tweetys at 1-800-358-5894
, and request postal shipping, they will get the items for you, and then ship to your location via USPS, at about 1/2 the shipping cost to you.
What prompted me to inquire about Tweetys shipping charges was that I found an item on their site for $14 and $15 shipping, total of $29 The identical item was found on another site for $15 and $8 shipping, total of $23 By calling the order in, it would appear that this item would have cost about the same from either source, and I would rather buy from Tweetys any day if cost was similar.
Just posted this FYI.
