I received this calendar as a Christmas gift from my daughter again this year, and once again the staff at WCCC has made a great calendar for the cougar enthusiast. Unfortunately my daughter said that she would not be purchasing another calendar next year as the shipping options are Outrageous in price, and almost cost as much as the calendar!! If only the staff could get the website to allow for different shipping means! I was advised by the staff to select 1st class mail or the website will often default to Priority mail at a higher rate. I have placed multiple orders and have yet to get the website to select 1st class mail, as when you open the shipping options 1st class mail is simply not an option or isn't in the pic list! So unfortunately the calendar is very pricey with shipping. WCCC staff, please look into this, as other places, for example “Hemmings Motor News” has $4.95 flat rate shipping on their calendars. So to pay $9 plus dollars for shipping and then add tax to the calendar price, a WCCC calendar will set you back around $30 dollars or more. Just sayin!!
First class mail is only available for items that are less than 13oz, this is per USPS. I tested adding just the Calendar to the cart and saying to ship it to your address, and USPS First Class showed up, so I am not sure why you were having an issue.
