    Been a while since I bought from cointaker. Went to place an order and am being charged $20 to ship something that would fit in a $6 USPS ship and it fits box.

    Is this new, as I used to recall them having very reasonable shipping rates. No way I'm spending $20 to ship $30 worth of lights

    Maybe shoot them an email and see if they can re-check the shipping rate? That is mighty high.

    Their shipping rates have gotten out of hand. $20 dollars to ship a 4x6 box full of light weight leds from pennsylvania to new jersey (2 hours away). Actual cost was probably $4.90

    I switched to comet. Same leds, made by same factory. Way cheaper price, $2.00 to ship via USPS. Talk about reasonable.

    Something isn't right, I ordered $27 in bulbs from them earlier this week, shipping was $2.32.

    Good point. Where do u live OP?

    I live in Texas. Used to cost about $5-$6 to have an order shipped. Going to send them a message from the contact us link. I'd really like the order but if it's going to cost more than $10 to ship I don't need it that bad.

    85 - I need some LEDs, we should combine. Though I was thinking of ordering some from comet.

    There must be something going on. I was also gonna order but the shipping was way too high for 20 bulbs so I went to comet. I should have emailed them to see if something was in fact wrong.

    Our shipping rates have not increased. We are still working out the bugs on our new website.
    We have automatically been crediting back all over charges on shipping, and are working on getting this straightened out. For those who ordered and feel they were over charged, please check your credit card or paypal receipts and you will find that you were credited back the difference.

    CT has been here a very long time, and it was just a matter of time before they addressed this.

    I love CT; done business with them for nearly 3 years and 11 games hand-picked fully LED'd. The only time I don't order from them is with specialty flashers or colors (cyan, very light greens, etc).

    #21 4 years ago

    I ordered some a week or so ago and got a 10 credit for shipping overcharges the next day.

    Ct rules.

    apparently it isn't fixed yet.
    went to place an order Friday and was ordering 450 LEDs [200 frosted 555, 200 frosted 44's and 50 2led clear dome] and shipping was $35.
    I said Hell no. $8-$10 I can understand. I shipped a widebody playfield in a wooden crate for $25.......

    Hope they get it worked out soon.

    and pinside10 and pinside15 don't work any longer. any new updated codes? I'd prefer to stay with cointaker as we have a process in place to LED games, but no discount makes their bulbs a LOT higher than competitors.
