Pampered Chef: Smartpost not so smart!

    I decided to put together a freezer meal workshop. I got 2 pantry orders, plus another item. It was not enough for a show, so I turned it into an individual order.

    Home Office tells me they're probably going to ship this smartpost. And even if I take out the metal loaf pan and the beer bread and replace it with a stoneware baker it might still get shipped via Smartpost!

    My freezer meal workshop is a week from Sunday.

    They offered that dang $25 expedited shipping but I said if I was going to pay that much I'd just bite the bullet and pay more of my own money to make it a show!

    I just want to cry, throw something, hit something!

    I'm already paying some of my own money and don't want to spend any more but ....

    I understand HO wanting to save $$ by using Smartpost so they don't have to hike the S/H. But at least in my area Smartpost is slower. It is hard to figure out sometimes which way items will ship. So sorry for your frustration!
