Where do you guys buy your products?

I'm looking at picking up two items and most of the vendors I see are charging like $12 to ship two bottles. I guess I am a cheap ass because I am not paying that much for shipping.

Are there any places that have a Camaro5 discount or cheaper shipping?

When I say that my wife reminds me that I'm thrifty. Of course she reminds of a lot of other things.

Some of them do offer flat rate shipping as a special. My personal experience has been with Adams and if you get the shipping reduced there, the costs are more palatable.

The only other suggestion I have is stock up on other things you might need to help ease the shipping costs. I know I've backed out of orders because I couldn't justify the shipping costs for only a few items verse the shipping costs if need a bunch of things and could get a deal the shipping.

Also, double check to see if they do have C5 discount codes. sometimes the discount codes equal the shipping costs.

Autopia-carcare.com, gpcperformance.com, detailersdomain.com, autogeek.net, all have the Camaro5 coupon code

Sign up for their newsletters and you often will get notified of flat rate shipping specials. unfortunately, these high shipping costs are just part of the game now.

In addition to our 10% forum discount right now (Camaro5) we are also offering $7.95 flat rate ground shipping on all orders in the lower 48 states.

So if you order a 4oz bottle or 20 gallons of detail spray it all ships for $7.95.
