I love me a good T-Shirt. I love T-Shirts so much that I have a closet filled with T-Shirts. Plain T-Shirts, Bright T-Shirts, T-Shirts that scream ME, Odd T-Shirts and Old Skanky Stinky Filled with Holes T-Shirts (not so much). I even have a stack of unused virgin T-Shirts.
Needless to say, when I see a cool T-Shirt, I buy it. So it really irritates me when there’s a T-Shirt that I want and the price that I have to pay to get it is ridiculous, especially when it doesn’t need to be. First of all, I’m more than happy to pay $20-$25 for a custom designed indie T-Shirt. What I’m not happy to pay is $10.49 (or $17.49) for …. wait for it … shipping on a single T-Shirt that cost $14.95!Â
The culprit here is JINX (J!NX) Clothing Company. They make and sell specialty geek inspired T-Shirts. A lot of awesome stuff indeed. They also make the official Diggnation and Totally Rad ShowÂ T-Shirts. I love Diggnation and am an active (addicted) Digg user. I love the Totally Rad Show and I watch on a weekly basis. I would love to have T-Shirts for these two shows but the damn shipping is ridiculous! I really don’t understand why, as a Hawaii resident, I need to pay over 10 bucks for shipping! Do they tack on an extra 5 bucks for “handling?” I’ve ordered tons of shirts online and they usually charge no more than 5 bucks for shipping and handling costs.Â
Boo to you JINX! Boo to you.
