IT HAD TO HAPPEN EVENTUALLY...
Hey there folks!
When the doors of Golden Prime swung open lo these almost 14 years ago, the deal to you was free shipping to a US address in the Lower 48 on any order over $350USD. Whatta deal! And through three presidents, numerous Super Bowl heartbreaks and a whole lotta Game of Thrones, that price never changed. Sadly, like all good things, this too must come to an end.
FREE SHIPPING AT $450 EFFECTIVE 1 JUNE
Due to the ever-increasing hikes in shipping rates, and despite our very best efforts to negotiate better rates for us all, we cannot hold out any longer and must also raise our limits to match. Effective 1 June 2019, free shipping to a lower-48 address will kick in on all orders over $450USD. We really, really wish we didn't have to do this, as our $350 rate was among the very best in the business, and we fought long and hard to keep that value for you.
WELL THIS IS UNFORTUNATE.
No kidding! It kills us to have to do this, and we really don't WANT to, but the numbers don't lie - shipping is our number one expense, and we have reached a point where we're starting to lose money on some shipments. Can't have that! We are also adjusting some of our pricing to better reflect the current currency rates and customs fees associated with importing so many things. This will only help us serve you better and far into the future!
Any questions, let me know!
