[Lee Valley] Lee Valley (Tools) free shipping over $40

More offers from Lee Valley
I have not seen this posted yet, but sorry if a re post.

Free shipping from Lee Valley on orders over $40 until February 25, 2020. Usually they offer free shipping on orders exceeding $149 so this might be a good time to purchase items that fall under the $149 threshold.

I have always had a good experience with Lee Valley.

Seems to be an off and on deal, maybe averaging two weeks per two months.

Lee Valley isn't usually the cheapest place around, but they are unwilling to sell poorly designed or poorly built products.

You can be certain that every product in their catalog is quality.

Lee Valley is also a Canadian company if you choose to support local.

I picked up a sharpening stone the last time they had this offer (Boxing Week). My knives are so much sharper now! Total game changer.

There's no such thing as free shipping. Even if they don't jack up prices just before the promo campaign starts, typically markup on imported merchandise is set so high (up to 500...600...1000% and sometimes more) that it allows the retailer to run these promo campaigns like 'free shipping' and all sorts of seasonal and other 'deals' as often as they wish. So don't be deceived.
In honesty, I'd prefer to pay whatever it costs to ship MY order to where I live, rather than subsidize this so-called 'free shipping' for everyone, including ppl living in remote areas. Nothing against these people, but if you live in a remote area and want it delivered there, please pay for it.

Anyone want to split an order of Festool 5" Granat circular sandpaper? 80 and 120 grit and maybe 180.

"Free Shipping" for higher value orders is a ubiquitous strategy used by online retailers to incentivize larger orders.

But Lee Valley is not your typical retailer. You won't find ridiculous "regular" prices and frequent deep discounts like at Canadian Tire or similar stores. At Lee Valley, items don't go on sale often and they certainly don't mark up prices before this kind of promo.

it's atypical behind the scenes, too -- How one company levels the pay slope of executives and workers

One of my favourite things to buy at Lee Valley are the 10 packs of screws. Whenever I go to Lowes or Home Depot, it seems like I can buy 2 screws for $2 or 500 screws for $20. But at Lee Valley I get 10 packs of many screws for under $1. Sweet. TY Lee Valley. It's also one of the few stores that when I visit in person, I see things for wood working or gardening / outdoor living that are unique, useful or otherwise compelling. Hard to leave the showroom empty-handed. I'm fortunate enough to live only a few kms from a store, but definitely a compelling shopping experience for folks who build, repair, craft, or garden. Shop online if you must, but visit the store if you get a chance. A very special shopping experience in an age of clonal retail redundancy.

Thanks I didn't know they had packs of screws. Had getting them from Lowe's and HD. There is a Lee Valley right by my HD so will be heading there instead.
