I'm not a fan of the game, but I'm sure there will be some of you who will vacuum up the remaining 19 copies of Dominion from Troll & Toad during their End of Year Liquidation Sale.

Link to their sale page.

$14.00 shipping to me. Ouch! Didn't see a free shipping with a certain purchase either, unless I missed it.

They don't have a free shipping offer.

But if you piggyback enough items into a large order, their prices can offset their shipping costs.

Where did you hear this and what is the minimum?

I can't find any mention of it anywhere on the site.

just added all 19 copies to the cart and did a shipping cost estimate... only $35.75 or about $1.88 per copy

sadly I don't have 19 friends and/or relatives I could gift them to that would play it (and don't already own copies themselves)

Thinking that a New Year's Day order might be worth putting together, I was foolish enough to browse some other board games.

Now I know why I've never ordered from them before!

16 of the 20 extremely common popular titles I checked were out of stock and the prices were 35-50% higher than other vendors that offer free shipping with a minimum order year round.

Why would anyone buy from them on a regular basis? I just can't understand what some businesses are thinking.

Because they do have the occasional good deal.

Should I have just not mentioned this?

There's not any specifics except domestic. I clicked on the picture in the email and it took me to their facebook page where you can see the image yourself.

They had a free shipping day not too long ago. It was supposed to start at midnight but it wasn't until around 9AM CST they actually turned the feature on. Via their FB page, they told people who ordered earlier to contact customer service for a shipping refund. So, if you don't see the free ship option and don't want to wait, pick the cheapest one (I believe its the 1st UPS in the shipping dropdown) and then contact their customer service.

Here's the thread from the last free shipping offer: Free shipping Troll & Toad Friday

I thought you once told me you weren't on there. Guess I imagined that.

The price will probably increase before that happens.

They also used to buy board games, but I can't find the list on their site anymore, so I'm assuming they don't. I'd pick up Dominion at that price, but I don't like the game, so I'll save it for Stone Age Style or the new MoV if/when it ever comes out.

I was just befuddled about their business model in general. I wasn't in any way devaluing the specific deal you found.

And since board games aren't their primary products they price things far higher than their competitors so they can keep them around and enjoy all the pretty boxes on their shelves. Makes perfect sense! Thanks for clearing that up.

I think I picked this up for $17.99 back in their Black Friday sale. They are mostly an OOP retailer, but they do have pretty OK prices on new items.

The Dominion sale is supposed to end on the 31st and the free shipping is on the 1st. Given the price jump before their last "free shipping" period, I wouldn't count on that price being in place on the 1st.

I just looked and there appears to be 0 in stock. I looked at the other items around Dominion and they each had in stock quantities, but I may have missed something.
