Hey LPU officials!
My name is Paul Gardiner. I am from the UK (England).
I recently received a $5 off coupon for renewing my LPU membership. I thought I would use this to purchase something from the store. I decided on the $5 Mike Shinoda print so I would only have to pay a delivery fee.
Everything was great until I got to the part where you choose the option for delivery. I obviously want the overseas UPS option… $63??? Really?? $63?? That’s actually more expensive than anything for sale in the store.
I don’t really know what I am trying to achieve with this post. Ideally I would love for someone to say, “Sorry Mr. Gardiner, you are right, $63 is most certainly an unreasonable amount to charge anyone for a delivery of such a small item. Or any item currently in the store for that matter. So we will reduce the charge to $10”. But let’s face it, that isn’t going to happen, right?!
So, I guess what I am hoping for is that I’m not the only one who feels this way and that others may have also expressed a similar opinion and as a result, the LPU reconsider their pricing structure. Or, use an alternative courier if the pricing is not determined by the LPU. I honestly have no idea how it all works. But seriously… $63?!
Please don’t take this post as a complaint! I’m not angry or disappointed. Just shocked.
Just for the record, I found the print on ebay. For sale within the UK. £10 and £1 delivery charge. I checked to see how much it would cost for delivery to the US… £9 ($13.57). Just saying!
Hoping for a reply soon!
