Mrs. Fields Halloween
However I did want to mention that I had one other huge disappointment that means I will not be using another Discover Cash Back Bonus on Mrs. Fields ever again. After my order back for Valentine's Day, I was placed on the email list for the company. After I got my e-certificate, which is basically a gift card, I received an email telling me about a set rate shipping and handle if I used this code. So I decided that was a good deal and I went to order the Grinning Gourd. I found out that I could use two special offers at the same time so I had to go with the more than double shipping and handling rate. That really annoyed me. How is a gift certificate a special offer? Does this mean that if I gave such a certificate to a friend or family member they have to pay more for shipping even if they were on the email list and got an offer? That just doesn't seem fair to me at all.
Let's think about this, Sisters and Brothers, whenever an online or catalog has "special shipping offers" aren't they really saying that "we could ship these at a lower rate but we chose not to"? I've ordered the same products using normal and "special" rates for shipping and I have never notice a different in the amount of time it took or the packaging. Have you?
