Really fast delivery. Ordered yesterday afternoon and received this morning.
Just think its a rip off for some little drum sticks
If there are more boats from China to the UK than there are from the UK to China, then pretty soon ALL the boats will be in the UK and there will be no boats in China! The problem at the moment is that most of the world sends boatloads of empty shipping containers to China and imports boatloads of full shipping containers to China. As a result it should be very cheap to put stuff in a shipping container and send it to China. (I read recently that Californian farmers were making use of this to ship hay to China - normally it wouldn't be economically viable to do so, but they could get such cheap shipping rates because the containers were going anyway that they were able to export thier excess and make a profit on it).
No but it's not really free is it no way the postage costs 3.95 for them sticks maximum will be about 1.50. So that's still 2.50 profit for the company and they get to make some feel they've got something for free.
£4 is expensive postage, a small parcel up to 2kg only costs £2.80, these would probably fit through as Large Letter so about a quid.. And a firm will be getting that cheaper... PS yes, I know it's P & packaging
