My ex-FLGS does business online so their prices are pretty much the same as you see at other online stores. I say ex-FLGS because they just closed their location that is close to my house. Now I'm trying to figure out where to buy my games from. My options are to drive to their other location, about 45 minutes one-way, just order from them online, or find another online store. So I'm wondering who you have found has the best shipping costs. My ex-FLGS, Boardgame Revolution, charges $8.99.

MyAtomic has free shipping at $25, as does Amazon. CoolStuff has free shipping at $100.

I've never heard of MyAtomic, thanks for telling me about it. It seems like Amazon doesn't carry a wide enough selection nor are their prices as low as most of the other online sites (B&B, thoughthammer, etc). I also rarely spend over $100 on a single order, so I'm thinking more of their standard shipping costs.

All online game stores worth their weight in html offer free shipping, at somewhere between $100-$150. It's hard to beat free.

Notable exception:
Cardhaus, which sometimes has slightly cheaper prices, making it a wash, if you order enough games.

Use http://boardgameprices.com to find the stores.

I group my order with friends/family to get it over $100 to get the free shipping from coolstuffinc. They have excellent prices, free delivery, large selection, quick delivery...

Coolstuffinc.com also gives repeat customers a rewards program. You get 1% off your order after you spend $100, 2% off after you spend $300, etc. It's not much, but continues to make it the cheapest option for me.

Like others, I order in bundles to get the shipping reduction. My usual low cost targets are BoardsAndBits.com (practically free shipping) and FairPlayGames.com (free shipping). B&B usually edges out the actually free shipping places with ever so slightly lower prices.
