It is not nice to dangle a super awesome deal on a great treadmill in front of someone's nose, and then charge $209 for shipping. The dream of an awesome new Proform 9.0 Competitor treadmill for $499 died a painful death in my shopping cart during checkout. Maybe you haven't heard that my cholesterol is slightly high and I need to get more exercise. Would this sway you to give me a discount on that psychotically high shipping price? Yeah...I didn't think so. Your loss. I'll continue my Craigslist negotiations for a cheap used one. Good luck pulling the rug out from other shoppers during the checkout process.
