“In the entire world there are only a few sounds that bring joy to all but the most jaded. One is the murmur of a kitten purring. Another is the thwack of a well-pitched baseball hitting a perfectly swung bat. And the third is the pop of a cork being pulled from a bottle of wine.” —George Taber

I liked these last time I bought them, and I'd buy them again if it wasn't for the 5.00 shipping on each and every purchase.. they just aren't worth 20 bucks

What Contemptible Scoundrel stole the cork from my lunch??

I bought these and they are not really good at vacuum sealing the wine bottles.

Yup. There really needs to be some kind of a threshold for shared shipping. The $5 per item bit has greatly reduced my use of Woot.

Sure, sometimes, $5 is a bargain shipping price. Other times? It's a deterrent.

The flat rate shipping thing worked when it was generous. Now, a more complex system needs to be in place, setting a point at which a flat rate shipping fee of some kind kicks in.

Regarding the product: a friend warned me off of them, back when I was into vacuum sealing my wine (which I rarely do any more). Said they don't create much of a vacuum, and they add too much size to the bottle, making it less convenient in the fridge.

I won't get this because summer shipping is not offered and I don't want to chance it with the heat and plastic.

I know rjq likes these and he tested them to show that they do remove air from the bottle (albeit approx. 1/3 of the air only). Personally, I prefer the Vacu-Vin.

No, they just need to reevaluate their business decision and bring back the 'all day shipping' that it seems everybody grew to love (or even extend on that offer to make it even better). The trend is that deal sites are charging less for shipping, not more.
