USPS recently raised their shipping prices. The costs are being pushed right to us on the consumer end. How is that affecting your cube purchasing? To get free shipping from the USA cube shops the rates used to be, TheCubicle.us $10+, SpeedCubeShop $15+, and CubeDepot $12+. To get Free Shipping needed spending is: $39, $49, and $25. If you just want to pay for shipping it is usually close to $4 now, assuming your not paying for priority.

What are your thoughts?

How it affects? Makes me sad paying more, but whatever, I keep buying LOL

I also started asking friends if they want to buy some cubes, so we divide the taxes and shipping costs and it gets cheaper for everyone

Yeah. I know that. speedcubes.co.za is basically the best option. I do buy from them but they often don't have what I want, or it's much more expensive than it was buying from thecubicle. I also prefer thecubicle much more.

I prefer free shipping, although I'm willing to pay maximum around 10$ for shipping. Since I live in Europe, this means that I buy my cubes either from China or Europe. I haven't have problems with my strategy so far, although I need to be patient to wait for almost up to two months to get my orders from China. Luckily in EU area my orders come typically after a week or so.
