ATT have a nutty shipping policy

So last Saturday I posted about some iPad cases that ATT had put on clearance. The cases were normally going for $50 to $80, and ATT were asking $5 each with free shipping.

I bought 3, and the second one arrive today. Yes, ATT thought it would be great to ship the 3 iPad cases individually using USPS Priority Mail. That means the shipping charge was about equal to the retail price.

I know it’s a small thing, but I’m sitting here right now giggling and I just wanted to share the insanity.

P.S. Before you ask, I’m planning to give the spare cases away. I don’t think they can be adapted to other uses, though.

    Free shit? sweet. I won a bicycle bell not too long ago from a bike hacks blog. Yes, that is my bike:

    Yeah, they seem a little out of it. My otterbox order finally got out of “processing” status just today (but into cancelled status). Digging my 5 dollar folio, though. Thanks again for the pointer.

      My third one isn’t even into processing yet.

      Edit: No, wait. It’s coming tomorrow. I’m getting 3 cases on 3 consecutive days. LOL
