News and Reviews for Wednesday October 23rd 2013


So here’s the news for you and I’m trying to order the part for my washer and Sears is charging $45 to ship it, it’s only 13 ounces, that’s ridiculous. That’s for expedited shipping, and regular shipping is $15.99. Still it’s only 13 ounces in weight. I don’t understand how companies can charge such obscene amounts for shipping, it’s sick that they can get away with it. Whatever.. read the news..
