Fedex just gave me a quote of $129. Hope that's not right.

Correction: I don't think it's air, but it says delivery Wednesday.
I got a UPS tracking number in a notification from UPS, but I don't have a cost from Misumi. The UPS tracking shows ground.

Carey's looking into it and said to sit tight. They get better volume pricing on Fedex so she said it may have been the better deal.

Scratch that. The other half of the order got sent via Next Day Air Saver. They better refund me the difference.

Hang in there... Mine is two packages also. Carey said they get very good volume pricing with fedex to certain locations, and it may have been cheaper for them to use fedex than UPS. I can see asking for a refund if the total was more than a quote from UPS like we requested, but time will tell...

Did you get a shipping quote? I just specified UPS Ground, but it never estimated a price.

I went to both the UPS and FedEx websites and got quotes based on the weight and zip codes on the tracking info.

I can't believe it was free. And $150 as well! The uk never does anything like that.

Misumi must be mad.

Sounds like my shipping was upgraded for free and I should have my parts tomorrow. I'll post back when I see the charge come through.

That's what they told me too. I'm scared to see the bill for it though. They shipped 4 separate packages (I checked the box for everything together). One was sent ground weighing 5 pounds, three were sent air weighing 2, 10, and 13 pounds each. That can't be cheap to send overnight.
