...No surprises… what you see is what you pay.
There is most definitely a cost to ship food items that need to be kept cool or frozen. Actually, the cost of shipping often amounts to more than the cost of what you are ordering... It’s a cost of doing business, so why do we all make more of it than necessary?
Everyone hates the cost of shipping. Even more than that, however, we hate being surprised by freight after we went through the effort of deciding to make a purchase. Sometimes, seeing shipping added to the bill gives us so much sticker shock. We impulsively click the X in the upper right corner, abandoning our shopping cart.
So why no shipping at Mealsforyou.com?
Our customers are smart shoppers. They realize that the cost of shipping is real, and no magic formula can make it just vanish. However, do lots of shipping and we are able to negotiate good shipping rates with the major carriers. We also don’t believe that any amount of profit should ever be built into the cost of shipping. Therefore, when we price our items for sale on the website we take into account our average cost of freight with no markup and simply add that onto the retail price (which has already factored in the profit needed to run our business).
At first, glance, when you compare our price to other food websites it may seem that some of those other sites have better pricing, but please take a closer look before making that call. Pick a comparable item from their site, place it in their shopping cart and head to checkout. Once you type in your delivery address and tally the order before giving your credit card information, check the total. We are very confident that when you compare the competitor site’s total including shipping you will find that our all-inclusive price is in your favor.
Buy More Save More
We go out of our way to assure our customers that they never pay more than necessary for shipped. Once you add a second item your order we take $10 off the price of both the first and second item and every item thereafter.
Why? Because we can combine multiple items in a single shipment and styrofoam chest so our shipping costs go down and thus we pass all those savings on to you.
