That Thinkgeek t-shirt I ordered for my daughter arrived yesterday. The shirt was $29.99, the delivery charge was $22.00, and my husband had to pay 15 for customs and such on delivery. If I ever order anything from Thinkgeek again I'll have it sent to a Canadian or American friend and have them send it to me via surface mail as a gift. I've learned my lesson! The shirt is brilliant, though, and my daughter is sure to love it.
Wow, that's an awful lot of extra costs you had to pay there! That delivery charge is a scandal! I think when it comes to customs, though, anything over $18 can get clobbered for customs. I think it's been the same rate for years, too. About time it went up.
