I just feel like this is a lot more crazy then when i did it last time..
That sounds normal, I actually expected it to be more.. Are you getting it shipped from within the US or from Thailand or something?
Either way, I have never used AB (not yet
) but I deal with shipping stuff DAILY at my job, I'm the only one in the office who does it, and betta's are shipped by overnight services, which are priority, so they are the most expensive.
I live in Canada and shipping to the middle states of the US overnight delivery, depending on how heavy/big the shipment is, can cost me anywhere from 150-400 dollars, unless it's just a letter or something, but usually its about the size/weight box a betta would come in.. and ends up around $200... (from Canada to US)
so in my opinion, $40 is a pretty good deal for overnight, even if it is within the states!
