We're pleased to announce that the former restriction of needing a $10 minimum order to qualify for UPS Ground shipping has been removed, and there is now no minimum. With every day that passes we become more frustrated with the United States Postal Service losing and destroying our packages and being completely unaccountable for doing so. While UPS Ground often does cost (slightly) more, it has many advantages of great value to people who want to receive the stuff they order: $100 of free insurance, day-definite delivery guarantees, actual tracking, and far better package handling. Therefore we strongly encourage everyone to select UPS Ground as their shipping option. Also, as a tip to reduce the cost of UPS Ground for your order, we suggest getting creative and having the package shipped to a place of business rather than a residence, doing so can often save several dollars.
