The Daughter (who I get to cook for) is really into to chili. Can't get enough, and I can make it pretty lean. My Rival CrockPot, which I'm otherwise happy with, has burned every batch of chili made recently. An internet search reveals that this Rival Crockpot is imfamous for buring things. So I researched slow cookers, and decided upon the Proter Silex 4 qt model 33042, that sells for about $19. Looked at some local stores. No luck. Went to order at Amazon, since I use they're reviews. Item is $17.99. So I added to basket. Shipping and Handling is $13.98, and tax is almost $3. The $20 item turned into $35.
Checked Walmart, since I've recently bought Tramontina cookware set and an electric kettle. They're free ship to store system worked well each time. Order the item (as fast and easy as Amazon), and got the free shipping to my local store for a total of $22. Pretty big difference, and it will be here in a few days.
Free shipping to a local store is a really good deal when you can find it.
I recently got a Kitchenaid mixer, and BedBath and Beyond does not do free ship to store, so I had to pay quite a bit for shipping, since they did not have many colors, including the one I wanted.
