Free pound of nothing
« on: November 09, 2014, 12:37:08 AM »

They keep saying "Free pound of coffee... Free...free free" -

Folks it is NOT free or anything near free.  This is totally deceptive - the shipping they charge covers the cost of the shipping AND the product.

If you think it is free then ask them if you can pick it up at their original location and see how that goes...

Freedom isn't free.

A poor attempt to distract with an irrelevant (and untrue) statement.  The claim is still deceptive...

Could be worse. At least this is accepted, common fraudulent behavior. Not like "notfatanymore.com"

You know I haven't ordered from coffee.ftl, because I generally don't drink coffee. However it doesn't seem you're correct. Yeah, $8.95 for shipping seems artificially high, but it seems you pay up to $17.50 a pound after your first free pound.

If you're saying the $8.95 covers shipping and the cost of the coffee (with no markup on their end,) then I'd suspect you're probably right. However, I don't think the use of the word "free" is "totally deceptive" at all.
