Interesting... Did not know about Walmart & Canada Post.gh05t wrote: ↑Nov 14th, 2017 1:18 pmI was looking at a $5 item on Walmart's website and noticed they allow free ship to a Canada Post outlet close to your home.
This beats the minimums in place to qualify for free shipping as well as the potential shipping costs for a $5 item exceeding the cost of the item.
They are probably copying Costco by selling higher online to cater for shipping costs.
Only a matter of time before this hits Canada.
The US is quite competitive and many online retailers give free shipping with no minimums.
Costco ... Sorry I disagree that their items are flat out more expensive on line. Over the years we've found several items online at Costco.ca either priced equal or less than in store, or even up against Amazon. And NO SHIPPING cost for most items.
Very happy shopping on line with Costco.ca
