With all the negative threads about who not to buy from I thought I'd change it up and say a big thanks to Terry & Margaret at Pinball Life.
As is my wont, after a few libations on a Saturday afternoon I thought it would be a good idea to whip the credit card out and go shopping.
This never ends well but I did need a few things for my MET so I moseyed on over to the Pinball Life online emporium.
Anyway, after I'd put a few "must haves" in the old cyber trolly, headed out thru the paypal express lane and hit the go button on my soon-to-be-needing-an-Australian-customs-card purchases, I continued on my merry way.
Unfortunately for me the next thread I read has someone who has cool black flippers with clear superbands on their TWD which I now also must have!
Herin lies my problem; of my $XYZ invoice just over $40 is shipping which is the way it is and I'm totally fine with that, it just means you shop less often and save a up few ideas until the next time.
Yes I'm aware if costs a maximum of 8 cents to send anything anywhere in the U.S., we just aren't that lucky. Even if I went local that's not enough to order on it's own.
However after a quick email to Terry he advised me to put another order in with another $40 plus shipping cost and he would combine both and refund the extra shipping.
Sure enough I had the extra shipping refunded, orders combined and the goodies arrived today, only 7 days later
So thank you very much to Terry & Margaret, you make it easy for us internationals to buy with confidence and back that up with great customer service, much appreciated, cheers Jason.
