Lots of 'strange things' happening with shipping these days.........'free shipping' arrives some long time after you forget you ordered something
Advocate for todays idiot.

Guys I add a few clearance products to da cart (bout $68) and the shipping fee for Regular airmail is $73 seriously? Others like EMS or Singapore Post are lower like #27 and $30 but still very unacceptable, since I been here for a long time and never cope with such a high shipping fee, if not to say I almost never have to pay for shipping fee.

What's wrong with our beloved fasttech these days?

How did you put it in your cart? It's out of stock.

Anyway, from the looks of the screen, it looks like that might be a Jiguan PCB in that mod. You're better off not buying it at any price.

I have over 30 items in my cart, all of which are a few silicone sleeves, 510 heat sinks, 510 connectors and some 50-packs and 100-packs of premade coils.

Shipping to the USA is showing "FREE" (epacket).

EDIT: I see, it's a "limited" deal. FT has already been caught increasing their shipping on these deals. Just like they did on the 99 cent deals last week or whenever it was.

That's probably what happened. Gotta keep those limited good deals to yourself. But at $10/mod (after shipping) you can find better mods for that price or a little more on clearance.

Yes, shipping jumps from free to $8.27 Schenzen Post.

Like I said, FT lowers the price but pads the shipping on these "deals".

I did this, added another item to bring it over the $20 mark, and got 8.27 shipping too. I also noticed that epacket wasn't an option because 'batteries'. Maybe that is it?

Honestly, I don't see how FT makes any money except that they make a little on a lot. I'm sure they don't sell as much lately either, so don't know how they can afford sells of any kind. Even so, every company has their 'tricks' for sells. It's always good to compare, and know what you're getting. I still like to shop here though :)

unrealistic expectations lend to disappointment

Those other mods i mentioned did not have any bats and shipping was $8.70. Try adding anything under $20.00 from that limited menu and see, then clear and add under $20.00 from regular priced items and you will see a huge difference. I did and shipping went from $8.70 on limited time items down to $1.52 for regular price items !
