Don’s from Kansas City and I’m from Chicago which makes for very interesting football or baseball viewing around here. You see, Don’s a very huge Kansas City Chiefs fan and while I don’t follow football that closely I have to give him some competition and root for the Chicago Bears. So, a few years ago Don wanted a Kansas City Chief’s hat and that’s something you just can’t find in Small Town, Alabama so it goes without saying, we had to resort to online shopping.

I grew up on the Chicago Cubs so when they were in the playoffs along with the Kansas City Royals were in the playoffs I was really hoping for a World Series between those two teams but sadly the Cubs didn’t quite make it so I did root for the Royals along with Don and I was right there beside him when the Royals won. As soon as the final inning of the last game of the series Don of course cheered and announced he wanted a Royals Championship hat.

Online shopping, while convenient has a few drawbacks but the main one is shipping costs. It’s outrageous when you buy a $10 item and shipping is $11. The good thing with the two hats Don got was that we ordered from the website of a store in our local mall and having them shipped to the store resulted in free shipping. That’s not always something you can find though and then you’re stuck braving the masses, going from store to store, spending precious money on gas, not to mention your time or you end up paying shipping.

With you can save those shipping costs at over 12,000 stores giving you more money to spend elsewhere and with the holidays coming up that can add up pretty fast.
