LdF not shipping Jade to the US... again

Recommended Posts

After the last 'free shipping, just not Jade' hoo-ha, I quickly placed my order this time. Considering a second order, I checked the site just now and in light blue print, no shipping Jades to the US.

 

While it's frustrating to customers, I'm sure the shop is just grinding their teeth in frustration. Glad I got my order in, and I hope this gets resolved soon, they seem like good people.

I might be wrong, but actual LdF newsletter says:

 

..we are pleased to announce that the full range of Jade absinthe multi-buys are now available with free shipping! You can choose from three or four bottle packs of any Jade and we will ship worldwide FREE OF SHIPPING COSTS! This offer includes the USA, so not only do you benefit from the generous multi-buy discount, you get free shipping too..

That newsletter was what prompted my order, the text I'm referring to is light blue on white, easy to miss. I don't remember it being there last week, which is why I posted.

Maybe I'm just being cranky, but I can't tell what the hell is going on in this thread.

I know...should I be all riled up at some douchebag oil mix makin' megacorp for imposing their douchebaggery again, or should I be chuckling at a wink and a nod?

All the Jades at LdF are indeed labeled "This product not shipped to U.S. residents." Regardless of the font color, you had to know that would cause some confusion.

Brian, I get it. I just thought pierreverte's remark was perhaps a trifle more waspish than was warranted.

Well, perhaps this is just one more example of Americans and the British being divided by a common language.

Peter's a merkin American.

 

Ha! You must be a Dr. Strangelove fan.

 

Speaking of merkins, I recently stumbled across this random posting to The Straight Dope:

 

Dear Cecil:

 

What exactly is a "merkin"? Ever since the word was thrust into my consciousness it's been tormenting me.

 

One cannot help but feel for the querent.
