Earlier I was on the JC Penney’s website buying some Levis since the store no longer carries decent-looking jeans (I like Levis 560s). I found the jeans I liked on JCPenney.com and put three pairs in my shopping bag. The total came to a little over $86. I went to check out and found out that there was a $15 shipping charge because I my purchase was for less than $100. I didn’t really want anything else but I ended up adding a shirt because I didn’t want to pay $15 shipping.
The only problem was the shirt was $29.99! LOL! So to save $15, I spent $30! Granted, the shirt really only cost me $15 since I was going to have to pay $15 regardless of whether or not I met the $100 threshold. I guess I subconsciously reasoned with myself that I would rather pay $15 towards a shirt than to pay $15 for shipping. Logical? I’m not sure.
