Given a couple of years of Williams Sonoma gift cards, I decided to splurge on the 9-1/2 quart dutch oven in Dijon. It’s available only online.
Incredibly, their shipping charges are 11% of the order. Which for my dutch oven, worked out to be $37.50. That’s ridiculous given the real cost of shipping UPS. So, I asked for a supervisor who agreed to deduct half that.
So, a helpful hint for Chowhounders. And a note to Williams Sonoma: You might want to take a look at the marketplace. If I didn’t have the $200 in gift cards, I would never have bought from you.
