Making a large purchase just before a big SALE!

What are the odds! I just made a purchase 2 days ago of over $800 at 4 w d . c o m and paid over $60 for shipping. This morning I woke up with an e-mail advertising free shipping from the same store!

Anyone else have similar stories?

Did you call them? $60 isnt much for shipping when it comes to Jeep parts.

In nov I got the dec 4wd/4wheelparts catalogue wiht the 15% discount coupon. Took it to the store, where they said they'd take 15% off the already reduced to 450 xrc8 if I waited till dec. I waited till the 15th (payday) went in and lo and behold I missed special sale that weekend for 350...grrr...I hate vendors that mark up and down to make it seem like a sale. I had the next 15% coupon but still got my bumper cheaper off of amazon with free shipping (Smitty jk src 362 delivered) guess I'll use the coupon to replace my hook, nah

Call them and see if they will give you the $60 back, many places do because they don't want to lose the customer. I know when I bought my flares for 4x4groupbuy, I then found them on 4wd.com about a two days later for $50 cheaper, I called them and they took the $50 off my order.
