CEO golf shop shipping fees promotion code coupon

CEOgolfshop.com has free shipping on most products through October 31, 2010. Enter promotion code “10shipOCT” withouth the quotes at checkout.

A big shout out to Mike from NH. Thanks for bringing a shipping calculation error for certain types of orders to our attention. Mike’s order quoted overnight shipping at $105 for just two apparel items. We try to pass on shipping costs, not make a profit so there was obviously something wrong.  Additionally our standard flat rate shipping of $10, which applies to most orders, did not appear for Mike.

We found the problem, corrected it and gave Mike free shipping as a big thanks. Until the end of the month just enter the coupon code 10shipOCT (case sensitive) and you’ll get free shipping too, if your order qualifies for our $10 flat rate shipping program.

What items qualify for flat rate shipping? All orders under 10 lbs. This is most apparel orders.

What doesn’t qualify? Golf balls, luggage, golf bags.  These products usually have their own flat rate fees or free shipping, and ship direct from the factory.  Volume orders of any item can be heavy and don’t qualify our flat rate program.

Why don’t we offer FREE SHIPPING all the time like some other sites?  For one reason, we’re not a monstrous public company so we don’t have their buying power. At $10, 98% of the time we’re losing money on shipping. We prefer to keep product prices lower so that when you buy many pieces, you’ll save more money vs. inflating prices on every item to make up for the losses on shipping.

If you shop in our store and see something that doesn’t seem quite right, give us a call or email so we cna better serve you, and everyone else too. Thanks!

What is Shipping cost of umbrella to Puerto Rico?

The Solarteck umbrella with UV sun protection by Windbrella is a great umbrella for any sunny climate. The minimum shipping cost to Puerto Rico runs about $39. This is not an error. The actual Fedex International Ground cost is a little bit less than that, but there is extra paperwork to ship internationally.

We appreciate your understanding that ordering a $29 item which requires 15 minutes of special paperwork and a hard cost to CEOgolfshop of the same value or more, warrants the $39 shipping cost. We will not adjust shipping to lower than the store estimate in most cases for international orders such as for one umbrella, because that’s what it costs us and the order would be unprofitable.

Please order our standard minimum $200 in merchandise, to get the some value for your shipping costs. There is very little difference in price for one item as for 5 items for international orders.
The $39 rate above applies to one umbrella from Florida to Puerto Rico.

Shipping rate increase expected

Effective January 5, 2009, FedEx Express package and freight rates will increase an average of 6.9% for U.S. and U.S. export services. The rate increase will be partially offset by adjusting the fuel price at which the fuel surcharge begins, reducing the fuel surcharge by 2 percentage points.

FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery® rates will also increase by an average of 5.9%. For detailed information about rate, surcharge, fee and other important changes, go to fedex.com/2009rates.

CEOgolfshop.com tries to charge for shipping on a break-even basis. We pull live rates, but the system is not always perfect in estimating shipping costs. For this reason, we reserve the right to adjust shipping prices, especially for large items., accordingly. As companies adjust their rates next year, we’ll review estimates vs actual costs and revise our structure. As always, if a shipping amount seems out of line, please call us and we’ll review immediately. Thank you!
