May: Free Shipping Within the United States

May: Free Shipping Within the United States

USPS
This month we’re going to try something new.  We recently set up an Endicia account, that lets us ship small packages at a very inexpensive rate.  We want to give it a test run to make sure that, first and foremost, we’re not sacrificing service to our customers.  To do that, we’re offering free domestic (US) shipping for orders of any size within the continental US for all of May.

Free dLights

Aswin’s NXT time blog is giving away a free dLight set.  All you have to do is respond on his blog by April 1st.  We’re pretty sure this isn’t an April 1st prank; Aswin was the father of the dLight and helped us bring the dLight to fruition.
See more on the contest here.
