    Well, there's a difference between Amazon the company and companies/people that decide to sell their products on Amazon.com.
    Since you are buying from people/companies not affiliated with Amazon, you have to pay whatever shipping they ask, no way around it.
    (BTW it's a common method used to sell things on ebay/amazon by making the price seem cheaper than it actually is)

    Unfortunately Amazon doesn't sell that item or you could have gotten free shipping if you bought $25 worth of stuff. If you are not satisfied with the price I would check ebay.

    Just be glad you don't live in Canada. I saw a website charging $30 for shipping and the actual warehouse/shipping location was from Canada! wtf.

    Yeah! It sucks because we live right beside the US and then it's like oh.. $10 shipping + it takes 3 weeks to get to my house? Wow no thanks.
    And wow nice! Did your old charger break or something?

    Make sure you remember to cancel your free trial for prime or they'll charge you for a year :3

    there is free shipping paid by amazon if you're spending a certain amount, i think? i paid $30 in shipping to ottawa on a $200 purchase, but i chose express shipping and the tablet itself was new and still cheaper than i found it anywhere online or in store. it's not worth it for amazon or companies that use amazon to ship small purchases bought by themselves for free, so maybe wait until you have other things you want or need?
