2.0 out of 5 stars Shipping charges are outrageous, November 16, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Reach Ribbon Floss, Extra Wide - Unflavored - 100 yd (Health and Beauty)
I buy this dental tape from an Amazon supplier because I have trouble finding it in my local pharmacy, supermarket, etc.
But the shipping charges are out of line for the size of the package and its value. Three of these cost me $9 in shipping.
Next time I will ask my pharmacy to order it for me.

Yes, how right you are!
The shipping is outrageous. I will never order from them.

Please note that your rating is applied to the product, not to the vendor who charges you for shipping.

A Customer says:
@Reviewer: You've skewed the rating of a SUPERB product by giving the product these very misleading 2-stars, when it's actually the shipping costs you're against & not the dental floss! True, some time ago I too made this same kind of mistake-in-ratings-use, so I really DO appreciate "where you're coming from" -- but PLEASE be more careful in the future. I'm sure you didn't mean to do the following, but still: in low-rating this item for the wrong reasons, you've created exactly the wrong impression for the many consumers who unfortunately both reject AND purchase items based solely upon a mere rapid-fire perusal of how many stars are attached to the product-names within the category they're searching. Hence because of this, you've probably steered people away from this most-effective-of-all-dental-flosses: including people who may urgently need the benefits of its superior assistance. After all, medical research clearly confirms that poor gum care can even lead to serious heart trouble!

Thus PLEASE take more care in the future, & please rate each product only according to its own actual merit or lack thereof. If you find that Amazon (or indeed: ANY vendor!) overcharges for shipping, take them to task in the appropriate forum rather than by downgrading the PRODUCT that they shipped. /// Thank you!
