Shipping rate increases for the holiday

More Holiday Price Increases For Shipping

The holidays are upon us and EVERY single carrier is raising prices. I get it, gas it insane and inflation is going to heights we have never seen before but I think it is going to make online shopping a little slow this year!

I think shopping is going to be slow no matter what actually. I hope I'm wrong but the signs are pointing in that direction between inflation and shipping container issues and supply problems. Anyway, here are some price changes on shipping that have started or are coming soon.

Some of these services we don't use but we have included them in case you guys do!
