I agreee. All I want is a $70 sarong that is on sale for $36 ...but add $25 for the shipping, and then it's $61...so I'm only saving $9!!!
And I don't think it's completley true that they only offer FS when it's not sale season, because back during the huge NOV/DEC sale they had last FALL, they had a FS code out. I used it on my Louboutin boots that were on sale for $715, and that is exactly what a paid. No tax and no shipping
I don't have a code but I was made aware that the US site has added a ground shipping option for $12.50.
It takes forever. I ordered a handbag Friday 6/29 and I still haven't received it. It's supposed to take 3-5 days but it took 3 or 4 days just to get NAP to have the shipment go out. On the DHL website it says it could take up to 6 business days! I should get it by 7/10 according to DHL. That is a long time to wait when you're excited about a new purchase! It is nice to have the option though. $25 is a lot to pay for a small ticket item.
