    Shows tax for your locale plus shipping of $5.98. Don't see any codes mentioned for free S&H.

    Wouldn't that be $9.95/850 = 0.0117 cents per gumball?

    Exclamation There will be a SALES TAX addition to your order

    I did get free shipping, but the sales tax will still hit you (cost me $1.33 for sales tax). I don't understand this, $1.33 tax on $9.95? That comes out to 13.35% sales tax! My sales tax rate here is only 8.375%. Are they also taxing me on the value of the free shipping and handling? If they are, then they are valuing the free shipping as $5.95, and taxing me for that value.

    Unhappy I will buy anyway, because it is still dirt cheap

    Even if the sales tax was $2, equalling a 20% tax rate, I wouldn't flinch in buying these. I am just wondering how they came up with their tax calculations.

    This is a good deal. I paid $30.00 on e-bay for the same thing. No tax for me in DE. I hope there fresh.

    There was a link which said "Receive free standard shipping on your order" and I clicked on it ... showed up with no shipping charge. Maybe you have to click that link to enable the free shipping.

    You know you're not supposed to eat them right?! You just keep chewing....

    LOL LOL LOL


    :hmmmm2: trying to do the math...

    :34:

    ok, where's the calc?



    Ah yes! one a day would only last you 4 1/2 years!
    That is, if you can still chew them at that point without breaking teeth!
