Sorry... just had to vent. I live in Hawaii and I understand if the shipper prefers to use Fedex or UPS ground to keep shipping costs cheaper... that having to then ship out of the contiguous 48 costs more because it goes by air. I even understand if the seller says they use USPS parcel post or regular priority shipping as their means of shipping and they ask for Alaska & Hawaii residents to contact prior to bidding to ask for shipping costs..... HOWEVER, if a seller states they ship USPS flat rate shipping to the lower 48, and in the same shipping description say they mean to charge more for shipping to "Hawaii, Alaska, or other international locations" then it just peeves me. Hawaii and Alaska are part of the US and flat rate covers us the same as any other state. Thank you for letting me vent.
