Bloomingdales is a Rip-Off

I have a love/hate relationship with Bloomies. Right now and for the past several years it's been hate - they unceremoniously canceled my Bloomies card for absolutely NO reason. I saw the cutest Nanette Lepore coat on sale which is great. However, when I go to checkout I am reminded that even with a friends and family code of 20% off that code means nothing since they charge $15.00 for shipping and on top of that another $13 or so on tax. This happened once before I was just reminded why I never complete the checkout process with Bloomingdales! Don't call it a sale if you're not getting a deal. So. Mad. No more e-mails from Bloomies with their tempting but phony offers of "sale" items.

Shipping can often ruin a deal!

I was just about to post the discount code!

That coat is really cute. Paying shipping kills me!

I'm sending my mother out to the White Plains store to score a Nanette dress that's on sale. Let me know if you want in... ;)

i am laughing because I had that same EXACT coat in my cart and cancelled the order for the same tax and shipping reason!

Wow, I better tell my mom this! She loves Bloomingdales! Unfortunately I don't have one near me. That's probably a good thing. ;)
