I was goofing off this afternoon on drsfostersmith.com and decided to place a fake order for $90,000 worth of tanks.

Shipping was $34.00 for next day shipping LOL

hahaha

I do that regularly as well, when i have free time during college. *Let me tell you, college=free time*

I like to go online and 'custom design' things to see how much of my wallet would implode.

For example, alienware computers w/the works. Aston Martin Vanquish. 50,000 sq. ft. greenhouse with all the trimmings. etc.

Its a blast when your blind from boredom, until you realize it sucks you cant have it, and then cry...

HAHAHa cheers,

HEH. Sounds like it gets cheaper in bulk!

If they ever DO have someone drop a bomb like that, I'm sure they'll be pretty surprised. ;) I can just see it now, some pet store opens up and takes advantage of the cheap shipping...

Are you going to be a good citizen and point out the mistake? ;)

Chaznsc is probably correct. What do they care if the shipping is, say a few hundred bucks? They just made $90,000, which is (insert markup amount) more than what they paid for the products from the manufacturer. Anyone have $90,000 to spend? Not I.

lemme say if those were tanks that were loaded up 90K worth of would run a GOOD amount on shipping. So I don't think they would let a freight bill like that slip by. 90 grand will get ya 50 of their 90 gallon tanks kits. that would take a few large trucks to deliver. at about 3-4 thousand per truck.
Shipping on the order I just tried to place for that came out to 17 bucks. lol

i'm sure if someone tried to place that order someone would stop it before it went out.

Sounds like someone needs to get a real major then! ;)
ohh haha mister admin lol. actually I am working for double major: management/marketing, horticulture, and and minor in entrepreneurial studies.

I go to PSU and have a 3.93 GPA, not a 4.0 because I got an A- last semester :)angryfire boo evil professor!)

My course schedule leaves me with a lot of open gaps in my week so yes, I do have a lot of free time. Thats why I have this hobby, and spend so much time on this website and on my various tanks. :red_mouth :biggrin:

As a matter of fact, as a token of my appreciation, Im going into support mode. :icon_lol: :proud:
