    Might do better giving the supply house a call with what you are wanting and see if they will make you a deal.

    Brushy... Free shipping east of the Ms. river until Dec. 18... Code needed, but they will give it to you if you ask.

    Dadant has a free shipping deal. I don't have the details on it.

    http://bee-commerce.com/ Has free shipping 48 states on 5oo.oo or more orders. 10% off on smaller orders.

    I bought supers, foundation and misc. from Brushy. The 200 or so lbs. free freight was worth it.

    I think the deal with Brushy is that the order has to be over $100 for the free shipping.

    I didn't know Dadant had a deal. Does anyone have the details?

    bee-commerce seems to be real expensive for the things I want to get... (more than twice as expensive as others like Walter T. Kelley)... so even with a good deal the others come out cheaper.

    Kelley is my favorite. I would call them and ask. It's likely they are on the "free shipping" bandwagon, too.

    Kelleys is my favorite also. They have been kind enough to send me owners manuals for equipment of theirs I bought used plus some other stuff they have did above and beyond.

    Better bee I avoid like the pleage. w2hat crappy service we have gotten from them.

    I have always used Kelley's myself with great service. I did order some frames and deeps from Brushy Mountain this spring, they were good to work with also. I will have to say I like Kelleys frames better.

    I suppose it won't hurt to ask... and I love the service I've gotten from Kelley's.

    After Christmas I need to order a ton of frames and foundation... but also some W-Clips... I don't think Kelley's has W-Clips, do they?
