For what it's worth, I don't know how some companies can always do free shipping. Every time I go to UPS etc, it costs a small fortune.
I tend to get addicted to the free shipping that's offered all the time at sites like amazon, buy.com, etc, you name it. It's nice to shop knowing exactly what your final price is going to be and not having to always check or figure in shipping. I didn't buy from AG for a while, partly because it seems that to get a competitive deal, you HAVE to catch a sale of some type, and I kept missing the sales like I was playing whack-a-mole.
