Bob’s Red Mill No Longer Offers Free Shipping

I noticed when trying to place an order on www,Bobsredmill.com that they no longer offer free shipping. According to customer service, they can’t afford to offer free shipping anymore in today’s climate which is understandable but unfortunate us consumers. Below are the new rates for online orders. If you’re looking for free shipping, VitaCost seems to have free shipping over 49 dollars and consistently offers coupons. I’ve never placed an order with them before but I’m going to give them a try.

Order Subtotal                  Standard              USPS Priority Mail

Up to $49.99                     $10.99                  $15.99

$50 – $99.99                      $15.99                  $20.99

$100 – $199.99                  $19.99                  $24.99

$200 and up                      12%                      12% + $5.00

Below is full response to my email:

“We appreciate you reaching out to us regarding the cost of shipping on our website. Due to rising shipping costs, we have unfortunately had to discontinue our everyday free shipping offer.
