Gamestop charges an extra $1 per item that gets shipped from a store's inventory. Especially if you can use SAVER, I think that's more than reasonable. Has anyone actually shipped an item before? Then you'd know it's not free. Gamestop is charging you less than it actually costs to ship this stuff.
That is not true. Gamestop literally pay pennies to ship. I know, i was a manager there. The sheer amount of distros i used to do in a week (which is moving products from one location to the next). Gamestop stores do not ship to customers, and the cost to ship items back to the warehouse is pennies. Also, When a distro can contain over 100 items, all shipped to the same location, then they turn around and charge customers 2-5$ PER ITEM in that shipment, just to ship it back to the warehouse, they MORE than make up for the saver code.
That handling fee for one item pays for an entire shipment for them. Its how Gamestop make people believe their "free shipping" is a great deal. They are saving so much money by passing on their store distribution infrastructure onto customers, by charging multiple fees on the same items in a shipment. What tiny amount they might lose shipping to your house is made up multiple times over by you funding their restocking of their entire storefront.
But again, if i order 20 items, and they add 20 2$ fees onto it, how is that "charging you less than it actually costs to ship this stuff." I dont pay for amazon to move inventory, or best buy, and i still get free shipping from both. Its a scam, plain and simple.
