Maybe they assume I’m sending the half-pound’s worth of items to the Moon instead of Chicago? It’s unlikely I’ll consummate this purchase transaction. Maybe instead I’ll rent a limo for the weekend.
Greets to my friends at Amazon! (If only the items were in stock… )

I should add the items in question were:
1. A 512Mb SD memory card (weight: 1 ounce)
2. A 55mm UV filter (weight: 2 ounces)
3. An extender thingie for a Kodak P850 digital camera. (weight: 2.4 ounces)
Well, it makes the $5.57 upgrade to Standard shipping seem like a good deal..
True. And while you’re at it, don’t be a cheapskate and update to One-day shipping for a mere 5% more ($15).
Wow. I just ordered from buy.com and I got $150 worth of stuff with a 10% coupon and free shipping. 😉 I would wait. I never had a problem like you had.
Was it an error?

It’s clearly a bug, and what I think is happening is they may be pulling data from Amazon’s site. Last night the P850 extender thingie was erroneously showing up as 400+ pounds on amazon.com. I reported it, and now the page seems to be gone/fixed, showing 2.4 ounces. When I deleted it from my buy.com cart, shipping went down to $6.
Was it going to be shipped on foot and hand delivered by a guy wearing a suit made from gold fibers (that you paid for)? It’s still too expensive but that would be kinda cool.
You shoulda added something huge, like a horse (buy.com should totally sell horses!). The shipping couldn’t cost much more than that and at least you’d get a horse.
Wow. I suppose I’ll have to tell you what I really think offline. 🙂
