Capitol Debuts Three-Tiered Free Shipping
Capitol this week announced the debut of a new three-tiered shipping program dedicated, the company said, to provide free shipping with "the least amount of hassle." The program goes into effect August 5.
Under the new program, online orders with in-stock product of $99 or more will receive free parcel ground freight. Also, orders with in-stock product of $900 or more and ordered via phone, fax or email will receive free parcel ground freight, and any Energy Star TV product that requires shipment view truck is eligible for free or reduced standard ground service.
“There’s no doubt that that increasing fuel costs and related expenses are affecting shipping costs for everybody, from manufacturers to distributors and dealers,” Curt Hayes, Capitol’s president and CFO, said as part of the announcement. “But that won’t stop us from developing programs that eliminate these expenses without affecting our unshakable commitment to providing the best shipping options in the business.”
