I think Midway has me back

I was online - and decided to shop for that .223 case gauge that I've been meaning to pick up.

Started on some of the online/eBay sources, and a Midway ad popped up.

I go back a ways with them (all the way to FREE shipping days), so I dropped it in the cart and was prepared to be blasted with shipping. It was only $3.99 so I kept shopping.

I picked the case gauge, and a couple of add-on items that I was not really looking for. About $34 in stuff total.

Their new shipping policies are much more favorable!
Just $2.60 for my order - and they abandon that silly "small order" fee too.

I don't recall noticing their change in shipping before. I'm back on their Email list, and expect a birthday discount - if they still do THAT too.

Regards,
Fritz.

Very glad to hear. I have been watching shipping charges lately due to a recent thread. I have never disagreed with Midway's charges but Brownells floored me with $15 for a $60 small item order. I backed out.

You can opt out of the emails. Click a button. Midway has me as a loyal customer. Great folks to deal with. Good deals at times, picked up a mil/mil Bushnell Elite 10x for $189 a few months back. Last year I ordered a $300 AR Gold trigger for my target AR15, among a few other small items. The box came and had all items on the invoice, but no trigger. I called them expecting a hassle, my word only, and a $300 item not in my box. They apologized and sent me out another AR Gold trigger with free 2nd day shipping. I support folks that treat me like that. Which is a short list, only Cabelas and Midway have that kind of customer service.

At one time MidwayUSA would get you in with a low price and then hit you with crazy high shipping and handling. I recently shopped their website, bought two G21 mags, and was surprised with good prices and fair shipping charges. I also like their support of the NRA.

When it comes to gun stuff, I also have great luck with Lonewolf Dist.

They sure do send a lot of e-mails, but I don't get so many others that I can't delete them, whether I look at them or not. I haven't needed anything firearms related in a long time, so I haven't purchased.

One thing I have to say: Midway is the best site around.

I have been shopping there for years and get NO emails except the notify me when products are in stock type that I choose to receive. Opt out by clicking a button. I shop with Natchez Shooters in Tennessee a lot too but have yet to figure out how to separate the notify me type emails from their typical spam email, so I get both. But Midway makes it easy to not receive their marketing emails.

Haven't done much business with them as of the last 8 years or so due to their soaking the customer with shipping charges.
I'll have to give them another look,my bet is their sales were starting to lag because of it. SJ 40

I like Midway but I usually prefer to pay cash or money order. I still start most of my shopping with Midway. But once I browse and read the reviews, I have to buy elsewhere if I don't want to charge it.
