    No free shipping from TFTestkits.net ?

    Am I loosing it (OK, I know I am), or did I see that TFTestkits.net had free S/H for orders over certain amount?
    I could have sworn that I saw that orders over $80 IIRC shipped for free.
    I was trying to place an order last night and didn't see that option and my S/H was going to be $18.
    I got used to Amazons and eBays with it's free S/H on many (almost any) items. Even many pool supply places have free shipping on anything and some have the $75.

    I will call them on Monday to check, but figured I'll ask here since it's the weekend.

    That was a promotion. It ended April 15, I believe. You should have a discount code since you're a website supporter. That's shave a few bucks.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Oh, ****!
    I didn't order it because my pool is not done yet.

    Why do you keep typing all those asterisks?

    The TF100 and a troublefree pool is a bargain at the twice the price.

    I have always been VERY old-fashioned about promotions. If it is free shipping 365 days a year (or 88% off 365 days a year, or whatever) it really isn't a promo and obviously it is not "free".......it's in there somewhere......the merchant is simply calling it something else or working it into his costs.

    The Free Shipping promo was truly that in our case......really free. That said, it had to have an expiration date or it wouldn't have been a promo. Same with our complete refill set. We promo it for a limited time and then it goes back to it's regular price.

    I know I am a bit of a dinosaur but I really like the idea of a sale being a sale and not just a re-wording of the everyday price.

    +1 on that! Very few real sales nowadays. Free shipping every day definitely means the shipping cost is in the price.

    BTW, Richard 320 is right. Because you are a TFP Lifetime Supporter, you should have had emailed to you a $10 discount code if you decide to get the kit.

    Yeap, got the code, was hoping to get that and the free shipping.
    I'll call them tomorrow and see if they can help brotha out. If not, I'll still place the order

    +1!!!!

    It amazes me people will spend $$$$$ + on a pool but hesitate to spend $$ on the most important tool a pool owner needs.
