Do you think when a company offers a free gift it should be free not with a very high delivery cost?

If it is stated as "free" then I think it should be exactly that.

By paying for the postage, you are still essentially paying for the product.

It depends what it is and how much pistage they charge. If its only a cheap thing you can pick up for £1/2 and they want over the top postage then no. If its something you would actually want and they are charging the correct amount of postage then its not so bad.

If you have to pay for the postage, it becomes more of a cheap deal. That is, if it is worth it.

I suppose paying for delivery is a way to weed off others so not everyone orders and they still get something. I suppose with making you pay for delivery they’re hoping you add other items to your shopping cart for purchase.

Sometimes it’s cheaper to pay a delivery charge than pay for an item without it. They tend to add the delivery charge to the item you are buying. so you don’t realise you are paying for delivery and it’s very often cheaper to get the item you want from another site with a delivery charge

Yeah but i rarely find the product cheaper with delivery compared to the product on prime with one day delivery.

I think if it has a p&p then technically it’s not free it's now a cheap deal but I see why they have to put a p&p cost for some items I guess

Recently, I ordered a cup which was "FREE" and delivery cost was £4.99 while same shop was selling same cups for £3.99 with free delivery 😀😀😀

I was talking about that scam.

Time and time again, I see "freebies" being posted with ridiculous p&p charges.

Free is just that. If you have to pay delivery it is not free it is a deal!

I agree. I've been offered so many 'free' gifts and I only have to pay up to £4 to get the item. No, I won't be accepted that free gift then.

I don't like to pay for the delivery for freebies so I usually ignore those ones. I did get two freebies where I paid the post but it was not worth it as the frebbies were small 😞
