At AngelFire, we don't add a surcharge to shipping rates and we don't make any money on shipping charges. We also don't artificially inflate the price of our product, just so we can turn around and offer fake free shipping. So we are more than happy to share the following tips on how to get the most out of your shipping dollars.
It's pretty simple - ship as much ammo as possible in as few boxes as possible.
Because the basic economic rule that volume equals value applies to shipping just as it does most other goods and services, the #1 most important thing you can do is purchase in volume. Not only will you save on the actual cost of the ammo, shipping 1000 Rounds of 9MM will cost just a couple bucks more than shipping 500, thus lowering the per-each cost of every round of ammo you purchase even more.
And because AngelFire ammo ships in custom-made boxes to reduce waste and ensure it's delivered in good condition, the 2nd most important thing you can do is avoid purchasing items that are packed in forms that cannot be shipped in the same shipping box. The $4 you save buying a 500-round can and a 500-round case (rather than just purchasing two cans) will be completely lost … and then some … because each item will ship in its own box and incur its own separate shipping rate.
We’ve created the following chart to show you which items, when purchased together, will offer the most advantageous shipping rates and keep as much money as possible in your pocket.
The following items can ship several to a box and we have several boxes in which they can ship, so the more you order, the more you'll save:
- Empty PMAGs
- Pre-Loaded PMAGs
- Prepper Packs
- Steel Targets
- MagPump Retainers/Adapters
And lastly, be sure to check out the USPS shipping rates on all non-ammunition items. Depending on the weight and dimensions of the items you’re purchasing, you could save quite a bit of money.
