[Amazon.ca] 70 LB. Bag of all purpose sand $7.03 + fs with Prime (add-on item)

Winter is coming! 70 lb bag of sand. I usually pay $6-$7 for a 20 lb bag. I use it for walkways. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01M6V ... UTF8&psc=1 Delivery driver won't be too happy, though! It's an add-on item ($25 to qualify for Prime members)

I usually buy construction sand / all purpose sand from a local hardware store; about 3$ for 66 lbs.

Yeah, you would think that it's not economically viable.

Thanks op (and bargain barrel). Needed to stock up on traction sand for the winter. And I had to get some ink for my printer :)

Managed to get it over 35 for free shipping ( bought 3 bags)

Some cities like Calgary give out free unlimited sand/gravel in winters, some people might want to check that also

Don't. Just don't.

Ever wonder how the minimum spend for free shipping gets increased so much? Or Prime gets worse (more items excluded)? This is how. People buying sand, kitty litter, bottled water etc. and having it shipped "free".

Amazon never thought of this when they developed their business plan, they have no statistics or logistics to figure out where they are losing money? They are not a small operation that let this fall through the cracks or the victim of a marketing department that can't find its rear end with a map. I don't usually take advantage of people but i do wonder why they would do something this stupid.
