Negotiating for Nearly-Free Shipping

Many websites offer free shipping where the order reaches a given threshold. By way of example, decorglamour.com offers free shipping for orders over $99.99, but the bottom-sink grid you want is priced at $98.50, which carries a shipping charge of $14.99. Even if paying the shipping charge is worth it to you, before doing so, you might offer by way of the website's email to pay $100 instead of $98.50 to qualify for free shipping. It does not always work. But it never hurts to try.
