I had just noticed that and sent them an email.

I understand that business is business, but to me, that FREE was a little incentive to build an order up over $100. I hate to see it go.

Wow...that had to have JUST happened. I placed a large order with them on Monday (Sunday night) and it was still there. Major bummer!

Wow, I just got a brew kettle, pump, and other accessories from them yesterday, all shipped free. Glad I did it then instead of now. The free shipping was what made me choose them for my goods.

You might want to tell them that. [email protected]

I just placed an order on Wednesday that was $112 and I got free shipping. Must have just happened. I was thinking of waiting until this weekend to order, but glad I did it on Wednesday now.

I was just looking at getting an order together and noticed that same thing, they didn't mention it in their weekly flyer. I feel like they don't love me anymore

I would have thought they would have at least emailed their previous customers explaining the reasoning for the change. I used them due to the free shipping and mostly lower priced goods. Until I get a mill, I will probably use brewerswarehouse for my beer recipe orders now.

I'm certainly no ahs fanboy, but we are talking about $5 here, right?

Again, you might want to tell them that.
